Where you gonna run
Where you gonna hide
Who you tryin to see
What you tryin to find

We're all in this race
Everybody trying to keep a pace
Can't get away
No no, there is no escape

The world is faced with problems
And many illusions
Love is the man overstanding
It's the only solution

Where you gonna run
Where you gonna hide
Who you tryin to see
What you tryin to find

People walking around in disguise
Try to tell me what they're trying to hide
'Cause what you're looking for
It stay here with you all the time

The world is faced with problems
And many illusions
Love is the man overstanding
It's the only solution

Where you gonna run
Where you gonna hide
Who you tryin to see
What you tryin to find

Can I please just get a vacation universe?  Tosh, Marley and other positive people help me realize how short life is and that this tired 44 year old single mom of my sweet 3 year old needs a beach break.....I'm talking Caribbean.  Love this music! 

 
Hope you made it before 49!

Peter don't do no Tosh. Pass the Red Stripe, and quit hogging that spliff! 8 from the (straight, sadly) Nottingham jury.
 

Now I always did reckon that this kind of reggae went better with some bud.  I wonder if they have Master Kush in Jamaica?  Just curious.

 

Catchy song.

Minor Tosh compared to some of what he did, but still a lot of fun.
 
Minor Tosh is much better than Major Tesh. ;-)
Great segue from Van the Man. {#Dance}

Oh man....just turned up the volume after a phone call and turned it right back down...I think I'll wait for the next song.
Now play Sinead's version of Downpressor Man. RIP, Peter.

Finally, someone who plays a Tosh song other than "Legalize It"!!! Great choice... more Tosh and reggae in general would be cool.
:nodhead:
Indigo Girls and now this? Bill what is going on here? :beat: ">
the Keith to Marley's Mick.....Tosh's live record is one of the few (Marley excepted) reggae albums I can actually listen to - he means the vibe.

Not until he discovers the good reggae...like early Burning Spear
