Just Give Me More from the Time Machine album!

This one is from my "Time Machine" (2007) album - Rod Jackson (Slash's Snakepit) has such a great voice and can sing anything - This track has kind of a pop/reggae Jimmy Cliff vibe - And the lyrics go: "What are you looking for, i don't know, just give me more........ what would you be doing, if this planet, just stopped from moving....." - Becoming more relevant as time goes by.......   http://open.spotify.com/track/0xyUvG0ssECHywrx6PSQgd     https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/just-give-me-more/id261151061?i=261151702
