95 Miles Down The Road (b/w) Belly of the Whale [7-inch vinyl]

Don’t mess with Nadir and Mayaeni! They’re both gone “95 Miles Down the Road” with a song that’s as hot as your mama’s skillet on Sunday morning!

That’s right, the two singer/songwriters get together to break it apart musically in the second chapter from The Book of Jonah, brought to you on wax!

Speaking of Jonah, the flip side takes us deep into the “Belly of the Whale”. And what does that mean? Listen and find out…

95 Miles Down The Road
(Omowale, Strauss)

I don’t wanna be here no more
We messed up everything.
I don’t wanna be here no more
You’ve become my enemy
I don’t wanna be here no more
It’s a broke down industry
I don’t wanna be here no more
Empty hearts in the street

I’m about to lose my mind
Gonna leave it all behind
You can forget about me
I’m looking for better things
And I’m gone, baby, I’m gone
95 Miles Down The Road

I don’t wanna do this no more
Ain’t no more to say
Baby, it’s the end of the show.
Fat lady ‘bout to sing
I already walked out the door
So don’t you follow me
I didn’t even leave you a note
I’m out of here finally

I’m about to lose my mind
Gonna leave it all behind
You can forget about me
I’m looking for better things
And I’m gone, baby, I’m gone
95 Miles Down The Road

Belly of the Whale Lyrics

Belly of the Whale
Music & Lyrics by Bob Gray, Jonah Nadir Omowale and Bill Steber

God said to Moses, “Tell Pharoah, the king,
This is what the Lord said, ‘Set my people free.’
I’ll lead you to the Promised Land, parting of the sea.
The journey won’t take long, if my people believe.”
And they all walked around for 40 years… for 40 years.

Moses on the mountain said, “Set my people free”
Noah built a big boat, took two of everything
Jonah’s in the belly of a fish in the sea
And we’re walking in the wilderness
Wanting to believe that

This is not the eve of destruction.
It’s just another day in the belly of the whale
(It’s just another day. Just, just another day.)

Noah was a righteous man. The Lord came to him and said,
“Build me an ark, Noah, and take two of everything.
Lock up the door cause I’m gonna make it rain
For 40 days and 40 nights to wash the world clean.”
And the rain fell down for 40 nights and 40 day.

Moses on the mountain said, “Set my people free”
Noah built a big boat, took two of everything
Jonah’s in the belly of a fish in the sea
And we’re walking in the wilderness
Trying to believe that

This is not the eve of destruction.
It’s just another day in the belly of the whale
(It’s just another day. Just, just another day.)

God said to Jonah, “Go speak a word for me.”
But Jonah ran away. He took a boat out to sea.
Along came a storm that tossed the angry waves
And Jonah woke up in the belly of a whale
And Jonah stayed down there for 3 days… for 3 days.

Moses on the mountain said, “Set my people free”
Noah built a big boat, took two of everything
Jonah’s in the belly of a fish in the sea
And we’re walking in the wilderness.
Do we all believe that

This is not the eve of destruction.
It’s just another day in the belly of the whale
