Track Name: Inspired Ft. Noah Slee
i was down and needed you so
inspire me to control
in spite of what folks had said
inspired me to control
past constraints had left me cold
inspired me to control

i see them from the bold
to the wise now
keeping the source of love
around live
help me pass on spirits alike now

you've inspired me
to be like you
your trying to teach me to be me

arrrrgggggh

good friends talk!!!
when the war goes down we talk
distort the locomotion
find a process
to be honed in
recover from lust
vengeance wishes
there is no bad
from the freshest to the old school greats you all got me
running i'm running no need to be siding we all got this

hold your place i'm here it's

now

marley, marvin, wonder, stones, simone, lennon, hathaway, jackson, robinson, cooke, redding
keep me pushing for my craft
conscious music is where it's at
satisfied with what i have

inspired me to create
pioneering soul before me!
dedication to all the greats,,,,,,
Track Name: Right On Time Ft. Tawiah
we've spent the years
wishing we could see the world
we're here tired of the same old
and when i look in your eyes
i can see pure gold
forever with you i'd like to be

i didnt think that i could love again
you took my heart
and yes i love again
i never ever thought i could feel this way again
lets go

so im here waiting for you
waiting to leave
yes i'm ready
i know you'll be right on time

all the tings and all the dreams we've shared
this road will help us get there
we dont do goodbyes
just all highs
dancing all the shackles free
this is just what we need

i didnt think that i could love again
you took my heart
and yes i love again
i never ever thought i could feel this way again
lets go

so im here waiting for you
waiting to leave
yes i'm ready
i know you'll be right on time

we dont need permission
to take off or land
from the core my heart beats
and for this love i stand
and all the things that we'll see
out of our comfort zones
i'm holding you so tightly
out into the unknown

chorus
Track Name: To The Ocean Ft. Kevin Mark Trail
it all leads to the ocean

we fly beneath the lights,
avoid all the plastic highs
keep love and truth in sight,
i know that nothings promised
we put the fear aside,
i cannot live a lie
you paint the picture, and i’ll sing the scripture


i’ll tell you how deep this thing goes
we all know every river flows
to the ocean, to the ocean

deep down beneath the earth,
i fell the fires burns
as they look to the stars,
i look into my heart
now that i’m here with you,
i know what two can do

were the earth meets the ocean
where sparks meet the breeze
when the rain to falls to river
the cycle of things
every end a beginning
every watcher knows
let it unfold, let it unfold
Track Name: Can We Get It Together Ft. Noah Slee
i dreamt of this a longtime
fought the cause of life now
keeping it intact until
shit hit the fan
so i took my heart out right
and played with others plans at night
i'm tagging me out
trying it on my own for now

can we get it together
your be blaming me
if your screwing leave
cos that's not my vibe
the forts compromised

can we get it together

so i set off to kill the sound
to silence the noise that was so loud
flip it from chaos to a sweet sweet sound
if you're wondering baby
this ain't about you it's about everything
going on in my mind
i'm needing to flip
the negative to a positive

can we get it together
Track Name: Never Too Far Ft. Georgia Anne Muldrow
lost in a dream with exuberant wings
taking the strides past those decadent lies i used to tell

in search of truth as the ultimate sooth
broke away from a spell that i threw on my self
turn of the tides took my eyes for a ride
when i looked inside

realized all the changes were really good
and i almost got hype
until it dawned upon me slowly that i got so far to go.
cant build it in a day my darlin

each brick gotta be laid my darling

hidden wisdom of the ages call

cant hear nothin if ya thinkin that cha know it all

an elevated state of mind is hard

guard it with with everthing ya got my darling

so when it all 
breaks down


you're never too far from the ground

manatee's head sat on top of a human neck
blind to all cannon fodder i had bought into

hurt me to think of the future i'd enjoy
packed with noisey interference
lawd knows what i done been thru
i've now arrived with the light of the sun

i only just begun on this long distance run

oh it feels good and sometimes i get hype
until it dawns upon me once again i got so far to go
there will be days where you can feel it all

like you've seen it all illusions seem so small 

reality sets in and steals away

all that you've earned in play

till the foundation's paved

just know the cornerstone is you

cant build it in a day my darlin

each brick gotta be laid my darling

hidden wisdom of the ages call

cant hear nothin if ya thinkin that cha know it all

an elevated state of mind is hard

guard it with with everthing ya got my darling

so when it all 
breaks down

you're never too far from the ground
ears opened looking for the truth in sound

capture it all around
and wisdom is abound
each person finds their gift along the way
listen to what they say
and you will find the truth

Track Name: Roots And Culture Ft. Kevin Mark Trail
roots and culture
bass and drum
roots and culture
land and water
living with...

before you know me you better know your self
right and left were your common sense
step in my yard time to play your cards
talking none sense bout your spitting bars

fast cars tend to hit the fence
crime after crime now you wanna repent
i suggest that you take you're time
in a concrete box i don't wanna climb

i see you acting crazy
gentlemen and ladies
enjoy you're self but maybe
theres more to life than this

[chorus ]

they tell a fool you must toe the line
tell the wise can i steel you're mind
instead of pit fall, i take the pit stop
tell the governments, yo the war has to stop

i'd rather sing and dance round the fire
then get lost in earthy desires
pass you the book so you can teach your self
break the chains, no more hunger games

i see you acting crazy
gentlemen and ladies
enjoy you're self but maybe
theres more to life than this

[chorus ]
Track Name: Get Your Move Gone Ft. Sharlene Hector
you make me uncomfortable
i’m not feeling your ways at all
you know i never signed up for this
i know you think that i’m being selfish
cant let you make me doubt myself
cause i was happy sitting on my shelf
i got a power that you’ve never seen
aint gonna waste it on your stupid pipe dreams

cant have it all your way
been trying to leave but you want me to stay
bend over backwards just to hear you say
you love me x 2

get your move gone, get get (repeat)
get it (repeat)

i look sweet like some candy floss
but i’m the girl that makes the mountains rock
now your scared and its no surprise
i think its time you read between the lines

i teach the boys how to breathe and stop
sweat on your brow now your burning up
feel like your looking for a miracle
well i’m standing right in front of you

cant have it all your way
been trying to leave but you want me to stay
bend over backwards just to hear you say
you love me x 2

get your move gone, get get (repeat)
get it (repeat)
Track Name: Young The Giant Ft. Noah Slee
young the giant
hold no fear
mysticism
loves to dare
get out of the way.....

he walks out light as a feather no burden or cares
she talks like she be holding down the nations worries under her hair
he seems fine then they're forced to move fatherless insurance bound society changed to fit what she makes...
they can't cry
until we give em enough reason with our hands

[chorus]

gotta take down the giant
while i sit in silence
sideways spread the peace never mind the violence
theres not enough recourses
its awkward while i stand abroad
we all need to move forward

gotta young girl on the corner
gotta young boy that wanna be a thug
gotta family tree that is getting chopped
down down down down from societies varietie of love..
that is
ohh sooo abstract

indigenous triiibbees

gotta find the love like

the moon at high tide
represent the light side
peace to the skies

one love with the oneness
peace to all the souls among us trust..

ill holla at you soon
there'll be no problems
don't pack up your stuff
let's try resolve things
young blood do not hurt
patience will combat
carry on you have love
& that's infectious

[chorus]
Track Name: Both Of Us Ft. Kevin Mark Trail
there’s a darkness deep within me
a nightmare before i wake
every day is a frustration
with every breath i take
i walk in a maze of trouble
you’re the only light i see
when we talk about our travels
i wanna see you, i wanna be you

love and lust,
both of us
seem to fall
and the world turns to dust
over and over baby,
we keeping on turning
over and over baby,
live for the fire baby

the world stops when the lion roars
do it for the love not the crowd applause
we say pause to the overlord
this is how we play it one love for all
the world stops when the lion roars (when the lion, when the lion)
do it for the love not the crowd applause (we, we do it, we, we do it all)
we say pause to the overlord (we say pause, we say pause)
this is how we play it one love for all (one love for all, one love for all yeah)
