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

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 x4 your be blaming me if your screwing leave cos that's not my vibe the forts compromised can we get it together x2 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 x4 your be blaming me if your screwing leave cos that's not my vibe the forts compromised

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 everything ya got my darling so when it all breaks down you're never too far from the ground never too far from the ground you know when it all breaks down x2 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 everything ya got my darling so when it all breaks down you're never too far from the ground never too far from the ground you know when it all breaks down x2 you're never too far from the ground

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 ]

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)

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)
