80's MTV sensation The Alarm recorded a song to benefit the Hadassah Bone Marrow Donor Registry in Jerusalem, Israel. They invited whoever wants to be involved to join in. So I wrote & recorded 1 verse for the Rights of Men & Boys & submitted it last month. Oan Friday, it was officially released!

What your hearing here is a "remix" I did of some of the demo tracks we were provided + my vocal track that I submitted & the saxophone part that they put at the beginning of my contribution. As such, I came up with a new edited 3:20 version of the song, one that doesn't take 1 hour & 10 minutes to get to hear my vocal ;-)

lyrics

G D Em

I'm not the same when I'm in church as on the battlefield


G D C

When I'm at war or in times of peace, or fallin' for your love

G D Em

I'm not the same when I stand my ground, or I give way


G D Cca
When I'm weak or when I'm strong, or when I'm in your arms


D Em

There's always two sides to the story

D C

In this world that I see before me

G D Em C

It was written... in the Scriptures... of life
It was written... in the Scriptures... of life

G D Em

In the 'hood, a boy grows up, without his father 'round


G D C

His mamma talks in ways that he's ashamed to be a man

G D Em

But down the street is a Church that gives a chance to learn his tools


G D Cca
And let's him know his worth ain't found following the money scam


D Em

Love others not for what they produce


D C

But for he love they bring out of you

G D Em C

In the Scriptures, or in the School of life
In the Scriptures, or in the School of life
