about

Orange Grove Den Haag, Netherlands

Many tours and a few albums later, OG is finally at their moment of truth. Somebody close to the band fills us in: “They are about to drop something big and heavy, so naturally it will make a very loud thumping noise and even people who were not paying attention will hear it.” ... more

Track Name: You Decide It
It’s your life you decide it, so many others lost their way
It’s your life you decide it, it’s yours to use or throw away

Your heart, it took a beating
It was caught and stabbed, left bleeding
Now those feelings they seem so deceiving
Nothing is coming your way so you’re running away
You fought, you begged, you pleaded
In the end you lost just what you needed
Now it is so hard to even believe in it
Nothing is coming your way cause you’re running away

It’s your life you decide it, so many others lost their way
It’s your life you decide it, it’s yours to use or throw away

All eyes were on her like so many I adored her. The way she walked, the way she talked, all like a pre-Madonna. She carried a high price, being nice couldn’t afford her, but while the stares had her cornered what she wanted just ignored her
What the love once did drugs’ll never do for her. They’ll just pick her off the ground to let her go and then ignore her. Have her lost in the ruins of her Sodom and Gamorra and that’s just the order of the day

You fought, you begged, you pleaded
In the end you lost just what you needed
Now it is so hard to even believe in it
Nothing is coming your way cause you’re running away

It’s your life you decide it, so many others lost their way
Who’s to say you won’t be the same. Just another life gone washed down the drain
It’s your life you decide it, it’s yours to use or throw away
What good is your life anyway, if you nah wan use it and just throw it away
Track Name: Haffi Fall Down
The man on top there, him haffi fall down
For how him got there, him haffi fall down
Him nah wan stop there, him want it all now
But sooner or later even body-guards’ll let their guards down
The man on top there, him haffi fall down
For how him got there, him haffi fall down
Him nah wan stop there, him want it all now
But sooner or later even body-guards’ll let their guards down
No need to worry man you’ll always get by. It’s just your people on the streets who’ll have to suffer yeah. You never go hungry and you sleep well every night. It’s just your people who can’t afford a supper
And there’s one reserved for your head. One to bore through your brain til ya dead, so you don’t wake up tomorrow to cause more pain and suffering to spread. The last gift you’ll get’s made of led and it goin fly out a barrel
The man on top there, him haffi fall down
For how him got there, him haffi fall down
Him nah wan stop there, him want it all now
But sooner or later even body-guards
They’ll run away, they’ll run away, they’ll run away, they’ll run away
You’re only in it for your best interest. Pretending that you care when really you couldn’t care less. You’re spreading sufferation from behind a desk, and one thing is for sure these people can’t go take no more
And there’s one reserved for your head. One to bore through your brain til ya dead, so you don’t wake up tomorrow to cause more pain and suffering to spread. The last gift you’ll get’s made of led and it goin fly out a barrel
The man on top there, him haffi fall down
For how him got there, him haffi fall down
Him nah wan stop there, him want it all now
But sooner or later even body-guards
They’ll run away, they’ll run away, they’ll run away, they’ll run away
Embrace the taste you’re in the place to be. They’re gonna turn it to waste you just wait and see. The same things you take oh so sacredly to them are worth just as much as dust. You can’t tell me that bombing is the right solution. That’s like trying to save our ozone by causing more pollution, like using gasoline to try and out a fire, that’s like trying to fix a flat by flattening another tire. It sounds silly I know but y’all look silly to me, like a bunch of little kids acting ridiculously. Do something about your 40 million illiterate and I mean that literally you got more problems in Little Italy, Sadam was just Little League
The man on top there, him haffi fall down
For how him got there, him haffi fall down
Him nah wan stop there, him want it all now
But sooner or later even body-guards’ll let their guards down
The man on top there, him haffi fall down
For how him got there, him haffi fall down
Him nah wan stop there, him want it all now
But sooner or later even body-guards
They’ll run away, they’ll run away, they’ll run away, they’ll run away
They’ll run away, they’ll run away, they’ll run away, they’ll run away

Track Name: Even if
there are many seasons many days
there are many reasons and many ways
get out and live a few
experience something new
i’m not here to pretend i know
those who do don’t intend to grow
so won’t you just let it go and enjoy the ride it’ll be alright
some they say the world’s bout to end
whether they believe it or it’s just pretend
one thing i just don’t understand
why they waste so much time
fussin and fightin like fools
arguing so much without any proof
i don’t think that’s time well-spent
if there’s only that much left
what if it’s just all in vane
you put ball and chain around you
aren’t we just all the same
and even if the waves take it all away
even if we don’t see another day
you’ve got to learn to appreciate
take it in before it’s too late
there’s a breeze and it’s blowin for you
all these trees how they’re growing for you
all these gifts nature’s showing you
you’re missing out cause you’re altering the truth
Track Name: Livin EZ

Track Name: Little by Little
You got to get yours and I’ve got to make mine
and little by little it’ll be but it’ll take time
I promise not to waste yours if you don’t waste mine
cause we both know it takes time
Time it never stopped just from waiting in a line
it never had a pause button or no rewind
it’s always yours it’s just a state of mind
as long as I’m alive I know I’ll keep trying
Time it never stopped just from waiting in a line
it never had a pause button or no rewind
it’s always yours it’s just a state of mind
as long as you’re alive you’d better keep trying
You got to get yours and I’ve got to make mine
and little by little it’ll be but it’ll take time
I promise not to waste yours if you don’t waste mine
cause we both know it takes time
Nuffa people give up dem whole life for a lie
You don’t have to be that girl you don’t have to be that guy
You never missed it til ya well turned dry
Ya never loved it til ya well’s all dried up
better open your eyes up don’t just stare into the sky
There’s lotsa work to be done and oh what it’s worth to be young
so don’t you waste it cause what you do now you can’t erase it
You got to get yours and I’ve got to make mine
and little by little it’ll be but it’ll take time
I promise not to waste yours if you don’t waste mine
cause we both know it takes time
All those troubles on your mind and all they do is bring you down
Track Name: Surf Song
sun is shining early riser
it’s time you set your mind free
from all those thoughts that can be blinding
you from all these opportunities
a wave’s forming on your horizon
much closer than it all may seem
and it’s not bout just having the timing
it’s more bout wanting to pursue your dreams
oh yeah
a ship in the harbor may be safer
than one way out at sea
but sailing’s what each ship was made for
and the same goes for you and me
i once knew better and didn’t do better
but now i know that i’d better do it
cause if you know better then you should do better
cause come some day waves can take this all away
