Michael Franti & Spearhead 11:59 Lyrics

It’s eleven fifty-nine and fifty-nine seconds.

If I’m gonna die tonight I want heaven, ay, ay, with you. [x2]

It was eleven fifty-nine and fifty-nine clicks.

The whole world’s burning but the clock just ticks

over and over, every single day.

Some people steal while other people pray

to God, to man, machines or whatever.

Some of us just lost faith altogether.

“No way,” they say, “it can’t be this way.”

That’s why so many people stand up and say:

One love, one blood, one heart, one soul and

one drum and only one rhythm,

One tribe and all of us singing.

It’s eleven fifty-nine and fifty-nine seconds.

If I’m gonna die tonight I want heaven, ay, ay, with you. [x2]

It was eleven fifty-nine and fifty-nine clicks.

Life’s a cord plugged in, the whole world’s sick.

Got diseases excited, they crawled up inside us.

Superstupiditis, philosophies that divide us.

Keep us in fear from one another

so we can’t recognize a brother from another mother.

No way, we can’t live this way,

that’s why so many people stand up and say:

One love, one blood, one heart, one soul and

one drum and only one rhythm,

One tribe and all of us singing.

It’s eleven fifty-nine and fifty-nine seconds.

If I’m gonna die tonight I want heaven, ay, ay, with you. [x2]

(I wanna rock it with you)

Ay, I wanna rock it with you,

I wanna rock it with you,

Till the day I die, till the day I die,

I wanna rock with you, till the day I die.

It was eleven fifty-nine and fifty-nine clicks.

The whole world’s burning, but the clock just ticks.

Some people cry, others occupy,

throw your hands high as the bullets fly by.

I dry my eyes, others wonder why,

but I just wanna be with you till the day I die

One love, one blood, one heart, one soul and

one drum and only one rhythm,

One tribe and all of us singing.

It’s eleven fifty-nine and fifty-nine seconds.

If I’m gonna die tonight I want heaven, ay, ay, with you. [x4]
