Round The World

Here We Go by LowriderHere We Go

From the new album ‘Round The World’ | Written by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite | Produced by Paul and John Bartlett | Recorded by Gabriel Agostino at Chapel Lane Studios | Mixed by Jason Goldstein at Audio Piranha Studios, NY | Mastered by Dave Kutch at The Mastering Palace, NY | Live horns by Chops Horns

What’s with all of this praise
It’s glorious I’m amazed
That if we can be here tonight
Then I’m making money but I do it for the
Feeling of the speakers when we get high
Stay up just to write
Get some afternoon
Delighted to see you here
Come right in and take a beer
It’s all on us
Go out
Pick up
Get laid
Breakfast
Vodka
Champagne
Sunset
Oh here we go

What’s with all of this praise
Its glorious I’m amazed
That if we can be here tonight
Then I’m making money it’s all a little funny
What’s with all of this praise
Its glorious I’m amazed
That if we can be here tonight
Then I’m making money but i do it for the

Feeling of the crowd jumping on the floor
Screaming ‘cause they want more
Lets go, all aboard
Excited to see you here
Come right in and take a beer
It’s all on us

We can get it back home!

Round The World by LowriderKeep The Pace

From the new album ‘Round The World’ | Written by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite | Produced by Paul and John Bartlett | Recorded by Gabriel Agostino at Chapel Lane Studios | Mixed by Jason Goldstein at Audio Piranha Studios, NY | Mastered by Dave Kutch at The Mastering Palace, NY | Live horns by Chops Horns

It’s a lonely road
Out the door
You’d never know
I’d been there
It’s a lonely place
Out there these days
Without a friend to lean on
I’ve never claimed to be strong
Sew my heart up with string
Make me feel
Help me sing
Will my heart open up for you

All your days you’re getting older
You’re getting stronger
But will you keep the pace

You’ve got bills to pay
Can’t pay the rent
You’re always late
And always bent
And though you know how the story goes
You’ll lose your head then hope to hell
That all your soul will overflow
With all your words and all you’ve known
But will your heart open up for me

Diamond Amongst The Thieves

BeBad by LowriderBeBad

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

So I hear you’ve been hanging round
With the cool kids downtown
The one’s who used to abuse you
Now they just use you

Oh won’t you be bad
To me

Let’s drink let’s smoke get high
Let’s f**k let’s joke lose time
Let me taste your medicine
Let’s see who I become

We’ve got the beat
Oh Mr Cee lay the beat back
Oh yeah I can feel that

See she’s been down in ways you’ve never dreamed about
And he’s the man to see to get that ex kicked out (knocked out)
And he’s the guy who’s here to sell confectionary
And next to me is me and how I used to be.

So I hear a new kid’s in town
So we all just jump around
‘Cause I’m a f**ked-up music clown
I’ll let you wash that sugar down

I know you where born to see
A diamond amongst the thieves
And if you want more from me the more you’ll get you see.

Friend by LowriderFriend

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

People throw your hands up
Who heard the news today?
Killing in the city
How do we lose our way?
Were all in this together
And I just want to say
We all have the power
The power to make a change
The world is now your suburb
Your neighbor’s far away
We all want the same thing,
peace, love, laughter, fun
You can’t tell me that I’m wrong
Who will stand up?
Throw your hands up?
We all lose a friend each day
If we turn our heads away

Be My
Be My friend
Friends till the end
I won’t wake up and start again

People are still dying from money hungry men
Suicide is rising, a disease you CAN prevent
Religion’s causing wars and wars are
building walls again
And after all you’ve seen our tears will
draw for stronger men
Then how can they bring us down?
Who will stand up?
Throw your hands up?
We all lose a friend each day
If we turn our heads away

Come be my friend
Please come be my friend
Veuillez
Bitte
Por Favor
Then how can they bring us down

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderFaded Dreams

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

I stayed till the sun starts to fall
But what the f**k am I waiting for
I’m not planning on struggle
Those days are gone and I’m stronger
Stronger than all of these
Ages I used to be
Places I used to see
But on top of all of these
I won’t look back
No, I won’t look back
Oh come on, Get a run on

When the sun goes down on faded dreams
Oh you better start running
When the sun goes down on faded dreams
I won’t give in

I can’t afford no more
I swear I paid it all
There’s nothing left of me
I’m not a soul I’m empty
Empty from all these tears
Empty from all these years
Empty from all these doors
Breaking one down while another one falls

Two steps closer but we can’t go home
I’ve been searching from a mile ago
One step closer and it’s all the same
Keep on running we’ll find a way
But I can’t go on and be
Someone that’s half of me
Oh come on, get a run on

I hope the lights all turn to green
I hope the right will soon be seen
I hope that this is not a dream
‘Cause where I’m happy I’m living
I’m living

I WON’T GIVE IN

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderDone With This

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

Any moment could just take you back

Feel it coming down
It’s deafening the sound
Of that cold black darkness at my door
No you can’t come in
I was happy here
No you must go away
I am done with this
No I can’t go on
I am strong but this
Is a black cold heart
It’s a black cold heart

And where the real thing is going wrong
I can’t seem to get my heart to leave my head alone

And the day says be cool
Be cool be cool no more
No more

Feel it coming out
Threatening to drown
Oh my once strong walls
Well they’re breaking now
No there’s no more room
No you can’t get in
I will fight you back
I will fight I will win
And where the real thing is going wrong
I can’t seem to get my heart to leave my head alone

Help me out of here
I am done with this

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderGoing Up

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

We can’t
We cannot stop no
This roller coaster
Is spinning IN control
No I can’t
I cannot stop no
And when I come down
It’s on I up go
I want it all
Rack one up
I want some more
Rack one up
Well slow down more
Slow down more
Oh I can barely see
Going up now up now

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderLiving This Way

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

When nothing’s going round
When nothing’s going round as good
When nothing’s left and what you had is gone
Time is yours so get up on it
Let’s get off and ride it from here

We can’t go too far
Living this way
Come take my hand
‘Cause we might be lead astray
By people who stay in fantasy land

What’s around the corner?
Is it where you want to be?
Or did you see brighter
Scenes in the magazines
And when they say its time to go
It won’t take long to see
The people left are those who know
That time is never free

You had me on

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderLonely Soul

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

Oh so we’re down once more
I never thought at all
I never thought at all
And when I saw the shadows on the wall
I thought you’d know
Thought you’d know

Oh so we’re down once more
I never thought you’d go
Thought you’d go
Now I’m looking like an old soul
Looking like a lonely soul
A lonely soul

I won’t take that don’t bring it back on me
I am wise and free
I am young to be
I can’t take that
I see the water fall and its flowing more
Now you’re gone

Oh so we’re down once more
I never thought at all
Oh so where down once more
I never thought you’d go
Thought you’d go

I won’t take that
Don’t bring it back on me
I am wise and free
I am young to be

I can’t take that
Won’t take it any more
I will overflow, I will overflow

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderRight Side Of Me

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

I never saw the other side of the city
It’s pretty
The way the rain came falling down
Sent me back to a memory of a child
WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE?
Do you wana be famous?
Do you wana be wealthy?
Do you wana live dangerous?
Do you wana live free?

Oh you can try to break me down
But I am stronger now
And the better half of me will refrain
I’m never gonna live again
Live again

Get on the right side of me

And when you find the dividing line
Between who lies and who truly believes
Oh well some will break
And some won’t mistake
And then you’ll find your place to be
And there there’s now doubt
There I found out
That my dreams where made of things
That won’t break unless I please

Get on the right side of me

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderHow Brave

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

How can you let the pain be seen?
It’s getting too much
How can you ever know?
Which way to go
It’s getting too much

And I
I can feel the moment heating now
And I
Cant go back and turn all this around

Well,
A mother’s love is nothing to be held back
And love is strong but life is where your heads at
I know this much for sure
See the doctor close the door
It’s true I never thought I’d ever be here
I need someone to help me get my head clear
Flowers are never this broken
Hearts never been so open
Oh I cant take this pain please make it go away
Then a voice is heard to say
So what should we do
It’s all left up to you
It’s getting too much
Its all left up to you

You can feel the moment heating now
And you
Cant go back and turn all this around
Oh I
I can feel the moment heating now
Its time
To decide if life has started now

The noises in my head are loud and unclear
So quickly now what is to be done dear
Oh put your hands on my shoulder
The answer now clearer and bolder
I can do this
I should do this
We can do this
And I know its for sure cause I

I can feel the moment heating now
And we
Can’t go back and turn all this around
Oh then she
Nods her head and somehow says goodbye
Oh
How brave a girl can be
How brave a girl can be

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderWhat Are You Looking For?

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

What are you looking for
Been searching for one thing since 1984
I canot take it no more
‘Cause life is a struggle always find myself wondering
Am I good enough
I wanna be good enough
Here I am smoke in hand
Pen in the other tryin’ a think of what’s troubling me
Try and find my G spot
It’s in my head, I swear it’s not in my c**k
You can’t keep up?
Slow the f**k down lets take it from the top
What are you looking for
A love of any kind
Be it physical or mind
Provoking times choking us

What are you looking for?
What if I don’t know?
What are you looking for?
I can’t take this no
What are you looking for?
I can’t take this no more, no more

So I hope you’re on your way
To finding a happy place
I know time is an enemy
There’s no time to waste any energy
Can I take this op, to open you up and slow you down
So you can hear the sound of the world going round
The world going round

Time is an enemy
The game is mine but I feel like it’s ahead of me
We suffer the highs but the low is what I truly please
I propose a toast to all of those
Thoughts and goals that keep on winning
‘Cause I know there’s some that don’t have any
Why the hurry to make time flurry
When you’re young I know the fun is tryin’a make time stop

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderAll In Hand

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

Don’t tell me what to do
I’ve been a fool like you
Been here for a long time
Don’t tell me what to say
‘Cause I said it and I bet its not getting a replay

We can take it
We can take it all now
Or we can break it
We can break it all down

So when the time has come
To fill what once were dreams
Leave your heart out to be seen
And we can’t go on and on
Just like there’s
Like nothings going on when
When time deals and all in hand
Like I said to the man behind the stand you gotta run
Run till you get them blues off
If there ever was a chance
To prove you know yourself
The time is when your hands are freed up

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderLet’s Go Now

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

Every time I look in your eyes
It makes me cry
‘Cause I’m in love
I’m in love
Every time I look at your face
I loose my place
‘Cause I’m in love
I want to run away with you

So let’s go now

Oh girl you blow me away
Can’t help but think of your face
And fall in love

Oh girl you blow me away
I want this feeling to stay

I’m holding back the things I want to say
‘Cause I know they’re crazy
I’m holding back the things I want to do
And I know you are too

I’m holding back
I want to run away with you

Diamond Amongst The Thieves by LowriderWe’ve Been

From the album ‘Diamond Amongst The Thieves’ | Written & produced by Lowrider | Lyrics by Joe Braithwaite

Can I take a little bit
I hope that it gets big
Can I take a little more

‘Cause
We’ve been
Doing this way too long

Remember all those days
The funny ways we played
I’m gonna miss those days
Can I take a little more
Of what we did have before
We did have before
Now I thought you should know that
We’ve been here before and
They all said it went
Said it went well
So it’s time to go at
Least I’ll miss it more and
Now I can do it
Do it better

    Saw you on YouTube a few weeks ago and was rapped to see you playing in Melbourne. Made my way down to the Northcote on Saturday and was amazed at your powerful, live performance. From my bones vibrating in tune with the bass, my body moving to the wicked beat of those drums, my soul grooving to the most amazing sound of the keys and then the whole wrapped in Joe’s amazing vocals all I can say is WOW! I haven’t walked away from a concert feeling so good about myself and the world for some 30 years. Can’t wait till next time.

  15. Margie says:

Your music is truly fresh and inspiring, and even after your album has been posted for years I still return to the classics. I want you to know that despite the trend towards itunes and the decline of record stores; for years I have bought your albums. Holding the lyrics and the shining disc in my hand is something that Apple can’t give me. Hope your new album is well and the wait will be worth it to see you live Grin
