Track Name: Something Better
Stuck in the mud, don’t know which step to take
I don’t know if I’ll make it before I break
Take me friends. I am yours
I’d buy you for all the money in the world
Where oh where can I find what I lost
Do I have the strength to carve it into my heart
The futility is killing me
Let me plug in I need a real kick start
What can I tell you that you don’t already know
I just move the words around trying to make a flow
Without you I’m home alone. Without me you need
Let’s shake on it and bake on it and drink on this guarantee
La la la la...
So once again we meet in another place
Has it been so long that we’ve been hurtling through space
Touch me now I’m dreaming I want to feel something I just can’t feel
Something that’s better, something that stays, something that won’t go away
La la la la...
Track Name: Break Free
This time my mind is blind
To what it finds in LA or the New York Times
One of my favorite lines
Says, "If you be mine, things will be fine!"
Instead they’re drawing sand lines
Another year another design

Here I go I'm about to break free – come on help me out
I'm about to break free
Writing lyrical lines amidst the neon signs
I'm serious and these are changing times

I've got strong men and weak me I'm the Master of War
I've got west men and east men across Atlantic shores
Add six more to explore

That makes 7 seas for the sailor to sail
There are 7 notes in the musical scale
There are 7 days in which to be one, one, one, one,
One, one, one
7 contents to make love on

Teacher talks about a parallel universe
Student is inspired to compose a rhyming verse
I'm gonna continue to dispel more myths
We've been waiting life times and life times for this

Sometimes it's kinder to be cruel than weak
Sometimes it's kinder to be cruel than weak

This time my mind is blind
To what it finds in LA or the New York Times
One of my favorite lines
Says, "If you be mine, things will be fine!"
Instead their drawing sand lines
Another year another design
Track Name: Getting it Right
Wake up the sun is shining The pavement’s still cool from the night
When we walked on it Taking care of business I worked all hours to get it right
Sweeten my drink, read up on the Times and hang out with my boys when I got the mind
You could say I’m living right. I’m batting high without a doubt

Made it out of the ‘burbs. I didn’t fit from the start
I’m destined for greatness. I’ve got greatness in my heart
And the market’s in my favor And the people think I’m so smart
You can say I’m a lucky guy My future’s bright I’m riding high

I feel that the morning is bright
And I know that I’m getting it right
And I feel that the morning is bright
And I know that I’m getting it right

I was making good money Making it and shaking it
I worked a lot Cause working’s what I did
And natural is as natural does I’ve been accused of being nature’s glove
In the right place at the right time Being blamed and doing time

Between what I’ve been born with And what I’ve learned
Between the company I keep I’ve left no stone unturned
But my cup is still not full It shouldn’t be filled by the sacred bull
Oh now I know how to stay out of the hutch If it costs too much don’t touch

I feel that the morning is bright
And I know that I’m getting it right
And I feel that the morning is bright
And I know that I’m getting it right

The grass grows through the pavement And I do the same
Feeling everything inside And playing my part in the game
But not until the bottom fell out Did I finally see the well marked route
Ever since the show came to town I’m trying to recreate the sound

The flowers are appearing The winter is past
We’re numbering up to a critical mass
Everything is in our hands and it all depends on us
Oh what I can change from stage to stage It’s all inside It’s all inside It’s all inside It’s all inside of me

And I know that I’m getting it right
And I feel that the morning is bright and I know that I’m getting it right
Getting it right
Getting it right
Getting it right
Track Name: Build a House
Going home to build a house

Finding you is like finding grapes in the desert

Laying eyes on you

Is like seeing first fruits after a long cold winter
I will unsheath my sword I will protect you

 I will raise my sword – should they come I’ll cut them down
Taking a deep and well worn path
Finding buried gems and treasures
Left by sages past
When judgement was rendered
I will unsheath my sword I will protect you

I will raise my sword – should they come I’ll cut them down
More than love me – love me when I’m with you

 I’ve had a change of heart

 Want to build a home call you my own
My own
Track Name: Life Line
What am I living for
Did I ask for all this pain
Was I born to be a dog
Are there any rules to this game

Suffering, another crushing blow
At first it seems like I was close
Now it seems a million miles to go

It's a story bout one man in a master plan
You know it's a rule
Seaking out my friends with the same goal
Reunite the pieces of the same soul
One big soul

Create an environment with the proper advertisement
To keep me on the line again to what is true
I want to sense the big life beyond motion space and time
I want to cut the key just right

I've done prayed all day and night
I've fought and I've cried
My well is running dry
My life is on the line

Suffering
Another crushing blow
At first it seemed like I was close
Now it seems a million miles to go

Create an environment with the proper advertisement
To keep me on the line again to what is true
I want to sense the big life beyond motion space and time
I want to cut the key just right

I've done prayed all day and night
I've fought and I've cried
My well is running dry
My life is on the line
Track Name: March
Take aim it’s the name of the game
You’ve got the path of Light and the path of pain
March, march there’s an unknown spark
And it’s buried down, deep down, down in your heart

Bond with me and then you’ll see
How the roots lead back up into the tree
Some are leafs and some are branches
But the people in this group took the biggest chances

Some tried sex Some tried drugs
Some even bent over backwards looking for love
Some tried in the movies Some tried in the songs
Trying to find a place where we belong
Some slept in the dirt And some slept in mansions
Some wore three piece suites And some wore no pants
And some traveled around to all the holy places
Looking for a way to fill their empty spaces
Some tried in college Some tried in the street
Some tried eating veggies Some tried eating meat
Only cling to Him
That’s the way we can win
Here’s the door
Now it’s time to go in

End of days
A worldwide craze!
People working and working
And never getting paid
Caveman ate his dinner and he slept in his cave
Renaissance man ate his meal and was better behaved
Modern man ate his fill but he can never be saved
It’s the nature of the beast to just crave and crave
All these years we kept a secret we just had to be brave
We’ve got just the right spice to end your slave days (2x)

I only match How you fill me
And I’m pleading to my friends Don’t be drilling
You’re loyal lover stands ready to provide
Got to reveal the love There is no time to hide

I feel it in my heart I feel it in my bones
An ass to the burden, an ox to the load
Don’t despair Don’t abandon the battle
Rise and live like a man Or fall and live like cattle
From strength to strength The heart understands
Not love of myself but, Love of my friends
We all know That there are no new souls
And me and you have been together Since the days of old
The flood waters came up And drowned us
Babylon Tower came down And did confound us
I changed this body A thousand times
Like I change my shirt And I pay no mind
I want this more than my addiction
Can’t come to love If not through friction

It’s the association
On location
To our destination
Such a unique Nation

End of days
A worldwide craze!
People working and working
And never getting paid
Caveman ate his dinner and he slept in his cave
Renaissance man ate his meal and was better behaved
Modern man ate his fill but he can never be saved
It’s the nature of the beast to just crave and crave
All these years we kept a secret we just had to be brave
We’ve got just the right spice to end your slave days (2x)
Track Name: I Want Change
Who wants change?

 I want change!

 Who wants change?
 I want change!
One, Unique and Unified
Name a path – I’m sure I’ve tried
All night long I sing and cry
Give me love before I die
Who wants change? ...
A person feels troubles and he’s led to a book
Many months go by till he can hear what he took
A baby does and he doesn’t know why
Nature pushes him to grow but a man has to try
Who wants change?...

I used to give to get – I want to get to give

I used to give to get – I want to get to give

Lure me forward – a carrot on a stick
A man thinks with his head a man thinks with his dick
My desire grows, I’m all full of spunk
I’m a spiritual warrior, not a celibate monk
Who wants change?...
It doesn’t matter if you’re wise or not
Doesn’t matter if you’re cool or hot
Let each one come – each one with his style
WWIII is going out of style. Look out
Who wants change?...
Track Name: The Greatest
It’s not the wise who comes
It’s not the fast who runs
The great and the small
Heard the clarion call

It’s not the wise who comes
It’s not the fast who runs
Your friends have come from far
I’ll tell you who you are
You’re the greatest in the world
Track Name: One Man
Got a friend in Santiago
Got a friend in Berlin
Got a friend a hundred miles away
Who’s as close as my hand

Distance couldn’t keep us apart
Because we’re one man
One man with one heart

One man’s a hero
One’s in finance
One’s in design
One does all that he can

Differences won’t keep us apart
Because we’re on man
One man with one heart

A person who advances
For him everything is new
Nothing is external
It’s all inside of you

Don’t despair from being so far
Man is always
Where his thoughts are

Of all things
There’s only one he can change
Everything else
Happens anyway

A mountain of hatred can’t keep us apart
Because we’re on man
One man with one heart
Track Name: Attack!
Here we can work to give
Here we can work to give
Here we can work to give. Give

Here we can work to give
Here we can work to give
Here we can work to give. Give

Attack. All the friends attack.
Attack. All the friends attack. Attack!!!
Attack. All the friends attack.
Attack. All the friends attack. Attack!!!

Here we can work to give
Here we can work to give
Here we can work to give. Give

Here we can work to give
Here we can work to give
Here we can work to give. Give

Attack. All the friends attack.
Attack. All the friends attack. Attack!!!
Attack. All the friends attack.
Attack. All the friends attack. Attack!!!

Attack. All the friends attack.
Attack. All the friends attack. Attack!!!
Attack. All the friends attack.
Attack. All the friends attack. Attack!!!

Attack. All the friends attack.
Attack. All the friends attack. Attack!!!
Attack. All the friends attack.
Attack. All the friends attack. Attack!!!
Track Name: What's Love
What’s love when things aren’t what they seem

 What’s love when you’re chasing down a dream

When the night is long and you’re far from home

And you cannot see the light

When the one you want, you call your own

Is nowhere in sight
What’s love when things aren’t what they seem
 What’s love when you’re chasing down a dream
When the floor falls out, all that’s left is doubt
There’s nowhere to hold on
When the world you thought you’re living in
Is gone. It’s all gone
What’s love when things aren’t what they seem
 What’s love when you’re chasing down a dream
When the grief takes over and it gets colder
And you feel like you have died
When you’re body keeps on living
But the rest is suicide
What’s love when things aren’t what they seem
 What’s love when you’re chasing down a dream
When it’s over, it’s over
There’s no way it can go on
Now just hold me and together
A new dream can come
What’s love when things aren’t what they seem
 What’s love when you’re chasing down a dream
Track Name: A Song of Ascents
At the crossroads by my cabin contemplating strategies for success
What attracts two people together, will we make it through this mess
Mama always said, even if you choose nothing things get done
But if you choose son you can get what you want

So many books on my shelf
So many sound bytes in my ear
I'm not wanting for another cliche
What do I want to hear

Walk with me talk with me I'm leading you around
What was popular yesterday has gone underground
Who's counting, who's living outside of time
Unpopular at 18 suave at 69
Poteach et yadecha umasbiah l'chol chai ratzon
Fulfills all my wills sits me on a royal throne
We are the holy children who will not be postponed
Sated with the finest wheat, give us honey from a stone
Step back, where the ladies at, looking for her place
When she takes her throne of glory then we'll have a peaceful place
I don't wake up in the morning trying to do wrong
Stop complaining to me and help me sing this song
Creation begins with two, our Maker's one
The moon shines at night and by day the sun
The tree of knowledge led to the rat race
Tree of Life. Show your face

In midtown Manhattan, contemplating strategies for success
So many people together, what do we share in common
Everyone needs something, someone
When they get it they want something more
But there's one thing that we always want

Some boys want a lover, starving mothers want some food
We each need something to live
Put your palms to the sky receive and give
Track Name: Balance
Joy, purpose, heart
Gratitude and balance
You won't be washed away by pain
Sweetness all the time decays
If you're out of the fight you'll never win
Without feeling life goes away

Grief keeps me up when I want to sleep
Knocks me out at the end of the week
But it washes off the rust of old habits
Give a dry garden a good watering
Track Name: In a System
Everything comes from above, except our love
And everything depends on this
Everything comes from above, except our love
And everything depends on me

We’re operated from above – a complete machine
The only thing that happens, is that it’s all concealed
There is no free action – we’re in a system
You can see it – but first you’ve got to be it
Everything comes from above, except our love...
I can’t live like I do – I need an answer
Honey and money don’t do it for me
Take some medication – even go on a vacation
But where is the place where I am free
Everything comes from above, except our love...
Track Name: Lie to Me
Lie to me, tell me everything is fine
I can’t do anything
Why should I worry? Lie to me

No one chooses the time.
His upbringing or his party line
We follow what we receive even as we grow.
To change I need and environment suitable for our goal

It has nothing to do with a country or a state – it’s just a desire in the soul
Don’t believe in yourself till your dying day – test it and test it till your old
Can i make your spirits high, can i help my friend
Love of the Creator through love of man
Track Name: Behold, I am Clay
Rabash Rabash
Somehow it had to be in the 21st century
You snuck through Jerusalem
It was crowded with army men
A thousand walks into the room
But one walks into the Light

Death is better than life for a road worker
Surrounding Light comes and shines on a person
Such a desire
Track Name: City of...
City of prostitution
Much concrete, much pollution
A one legged man does a backflip for some change
No shame, this market thrives on real pain

Bite my lip, don't slip got a chance to make it
Winter passes, vigor flows up the tree
Yesterday I cried last night you cried in my dreams

The bigger you are
The more responsibility you take
To be frank
I don't think you're taking your share
A dumb man's called wise
When he doesn't speak
Politrickster
Close that hole between your two cheeks

Bite my lip, don't slip got a chance to make it
Want the devil to test you cause your tired of waiting around

You have a big house with four locks on your door
If we're out here starving, you're gonna need some more

Bite my lip, don't slip got a chance to make it
Winter passes, vigor flows up the tree
Yesterday I cried last night you cried in my dreams
Track Name: Raise a Beast
You can summon me like a beast from the wood
You know the game I'm playing, survival
When the wicked all scattered and the walls fall out
Blame lust and honor, I blame doubt
Drink from the well
Getting up each time we fell
Grabbing on to one
The look, the feeling, I need the real thing
Oh Yeah
You be you and you be you
We all can fit in here
Oh Man
I woke up after passing out and saw your outstretched hand
We fed the starving children then they all needed clothes
Got juice from the sun then the solar cartel arose
It's clear to me now, I need you, I've taken aim
We're aiming for a truth where we all fit in
And we drink from the well, getting up each time we fell
Grabbing on to one, the look the feeling, I need the real thing
Oh Yeah
You be you and you be you
We all can fit in here
Oh Man
I woke up after passing out and saw your outstretched hand
Build a man from a child
Raise a beast out of the wild
Track Name: Suburban Bedouin
By day it's the shaky shell game
At night it's the sperm and egg game
Ruthlessness of the soul
Is getting out of control
Sometimes what it is
You want me to take from me
Step back relax, change is inevitable
You'll get what's coming you'll see

It's not that compassion doesn't bubble my heart
It's what your doing to me
I trained my mind from going to far
Thoughts deeper than the sea

I'm a suburban bedouin, You're no better than that
I've been on both sides of cash bars and fancy cars
Trust me boy, we both don't want suffering

It's not that compassion doesn't bubble my heart
It's what your doing to me
I trained my mind from going to far
Thoughts deeper than the sea
Track Name: Finish the Job
Don't mind me asking, it's just a chore
I've known the answer since before I was born
Spotted my prey, and made good chase
Was quite winded at the end of the day
Dropped my bucket and lift it up
Have some water until I've had enough
Find I see things when compromised
Find I see things I couldn't see otherwise

I've got no choice but to track him down
The deceiver facing south has been turned around
And this work found me I didn't seek it out
But I'll finish the job without a doubt

People said you were trouble
Did they do all that they were able
Why did you hurt, what made you a rebel
With the sweetest of smiles and and itch to meddle
You meddled in things I've only talked about
You've paid the cost and now we're left without

I went my way and you went yours
When I heard the news I hit the floor
Mercy me, could this be the end
Valiantly, I know this is not the end
A mighty blow came to your head
And I can't stop thinking about what the good book said

I've got no choice but to track him down
The deceiver facing south has been turned around
And this work found me I didn't seek it out
But I'll finish the job without a doubt
