Zion (ft. KnowledgeBorn07)

from Gamma Wave by Fluid Minds



Zion originally started as a KnowledgeBorn07 song. The arpeggiated synth riff was a 30 second part of the bridge. The song ended up being a B-side to the record. John took the bridge riff and put KB's lyrics over it. John then layered his vocals while Christian, Mike and Frank filled in all the musical gaps to transform this into a Fluid Minds track. If you watch the "Making of Gamma Wave" video on the Fluid Minds YouTube page, you can see Christian playing the PVC/copper pipes in the basement to produce the disticitive percussion sound.


ZION (lyrics written by KnowledgeBorn07)

Trust in Jah to bring you guidance
Keep your hearts clean and don’t you be a tyrant
Too many bad men and too many pirates
Stealing that culture just to promote their violence
Never fall for the trickery silence
Them a not paying attention to the cryin’
Keep your head up high and keep on climbin’
When they’re weeping and wailing, you’ll be in Zion

And if they wronged you and tried to fight you down
Realize that the lion he wears a crown
Never give up, you got to hammer them down like
Robert Nesta says you got to 'rammer dem' now
Speak positive and watch the vibes reflect
As the stars in the sky align and they connect
Open your conscious eye to not neglect
The things in this life that are more important
So spread your love around and make sure it’s true
Cause there’s much more to life than being a crazy fool
Believe you me and believe me you
Got to stay focused or you’ll be wrong too

And that’s why I cry

Hold me, baby, tell me you’ll never leave
Cause I need you right here by my side for eternity
