Track Name: Hungry for the Dollar
Everybody's wanting what they don't have
High heels, blue jeans, Gucci bag with the diamonds on it
Everybody's wanting what they can't have
Fancy cars, apple bars, shiny teeth with a gold one in it
Everybody's searching for that something
Who you know, who you got, where you been and what you doing for me
A material epidemic is breaking out
We forget who we are while we're chasing the modern day American dream

It's a crazy world
We all hungry for the dollar
There's no time to give no holla
To a brother while we're selling our souls

Track Name: Lyrical Devotion
Sometimes it feels hard to get the words out
Knowing where to start and where to finish
What you use to help inspiration flow
So many things to say
Turn the spout and let it all out
Climb into open pages
Spin until you are a hurricane
Use the force that you've created
Watch the stories come alive and hypnotize

Lyrical devotion
We write the script with pure intention
Lyrical devotion
Da do dada do dada do do doooo

Inspiration flows like a waterfall
Sometimes it falls hard, sometimes it dried out
If we close our eyes and begin to feel
We can start to see all the possibilities
Set the scene, create the mood, turn the lights low
Bring you up, leave you there, feel the pulse flow
Use the force that you've created
Watch the stories come alive and hypnotize

Lyrical devotion
We write the script with pure intention
Lyrical devotion
Da do dada do dada do do doooo

Gotta get, gotta get it all out
Time is running out
Gotta get, gotta get it all out
Time is running out, time is running out
Mind in motion, words unspoken
Mind in motion, words unspoken
Gotta get, gotta get it all out
Time is running out

Out, out, out
Track Name: The Brave
Would you ever feel alive
If you stood and let your dreams pass by
It's a hard thing to decide
If you break away from following the crowd
We don't have money for the fine things
But our dreams are richer than that
Now is the time to throw our cards out
Take a chance to feel alive

We are the brave
We ain't stopping, no no
Ain't no time to doubt so let's go, go, go
We are the brave
We ain't stopping, no no
Ain't no time to doubt so let's flow, flow, flow

The creators and visionaries
We see the possibilities that others will deny
Our flames burn brighter than the stars
We don't wanna stop until we reach the very high
People may say that we're just dreamers
But it's better than living a lie
Now is the time to throw our cards out
Take a chance to feel alive

We are the brave
We ain't stopping, no no
Ain't no time to doubt so let's go, go, go
We are the brave
We ain't stopping, no no
Ain't no time to doubt so let's flow, flow, flow

Braver than I ever been
Just trying to be the best of me if I ever can
Started from the bottom, gotta finish as a veteran
The dream took persistence and took precedence
Over anything lesser than
The greatest, they always get their rise from the haters
You can hate us, but you can't take the prize from the creators
If they made us in the struggle we'd be glowing by the morning
Growing up from the roots and making flowers in your gardens

We choose our lives, live them on our own terms
We break the mold 'cause we don't wanna stagnate
Even if we sink or swim, rise or fall
Through it all, big or small, we ain't ever stopping

We're gonna reach
(We reachin up and over)

We are the brave
We ain't stopping, no no
Ain't no time to doubt so let's go, go, go
We are the brave
We ain't stopping, no no
Ain't no time to doubt so let's flow, flow, flow
Track Name: Touch the Sky
Shoot an arrow make it touch the sky
Watch the fire as we say goodbye
In the land of the enchanted gold
Stars will tell us we have just begun

Time to take a trip to the other side
My mind's been heavy dragging that dead weight around
I keep checking what's behind my back
Waiting for something to attack
Can't catch a ghost if there's nothing to find

Time stands still with nothing to hide
Colors turn up bright

Shoot an arrow make it touch the sky
Watch the fire as we say goodbye
In the land of the enchanted gold
Stars will tell us we have just begun

Feeling lighter, I threw it out
Think I'm floating on air
With a love from a different kind
No longer checking what's behind my back
Marching forward to my own attack
The sun goes down
Do do do do do do

Time stands still with nothing to hide
Colors turn up bright

Shoot an arrow make it touch the sky
Watch the fire as we say goodbye
In the land of the enchanted gold
Stars will tell us we have just begun

Time stands still with nothing to hide
Colors turn up bright

Shoot an arrow, touch the sky
Watching the fire as we say goodbye
In the land of the enchanted gold
Stars will tell us we have just begun

Shoot an arrow make it touch the sky
Watch the fire as we say goodbye
In the land of the enchanted gold
Stars will tell us we have just begun
Track Name: Sunshine
I saw you the minute you walked into the room
You've got my love locked down
You're a breeze of modern courage
Fierce, brave, raw
Your thunder is striking
So entwined like snakes and ladders
You're my game of love surrendered
I set sail on distant oceans
Heart beats, waves, come crashing all around

Like a storm that you've created
You've got me shook with your love

I walked so many miles, and I have travelled
Over stones and coal to find you
Your bright light, it opens doors
And closes those that needed locking
I call out your name
I waited patiently in vain
Hope goes on, didn't take too long
Till you then came and turned it all around

Like a storm that you've created
You've got me shook with your love
You are my sunshine, you are my sunshine
I am a moth to the flame of your love
The light fills up sweet and shadows play
You are my sunshine, you are my sunshine
Like a storm that you've created
You've got me shook with your love

My sunshine
I can't breathe, your love is strong like a fire
I can't breathe, 'cause it's a burning desire
I can't breathe, your love is strong like a fire
I can't breathe
Track Name: Little Persuasions
Broken record repeating repeating again
Four steps backwards instead of jumping ahead
On the way you lose sometimes when intentions are good
It's the little things that make you falter
The vices that taste so sweet

A losing game
These little persuasions
Be careful what you ask for
These little persuasions
These little persuasions

One more shot for the rush, the need to get high
Body's older but your mind wants to think you're alright
Each and every drink there is temptation
It's the little things that make you falter
The vices that taste so sweet

A losing game
These little persuasions
Be careful what you ask for
These little persuasions
These little persuasions

Sweet temptation running through your veins
Sweet temptation running through your veins
Sweet temptation running through your veins
Sweet temptation running through your veins
Track Name: Breathe In
Don't be afraid 'cause you're gonna make it someday
Now is the time to gather your strength inside
In your darkest hour when you're alone
Always remember who you are fighting for

Your body gets weaker but your spirit's strong
Pain is a burden till you sing your song
Can't take it anymore, just let it go

Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out

Times may be hard not knowing the way to go
Don't try to run if you need to take it slow
One step ahead will lead the way
Part of the journey is leaving the baggage behind

Your body gets weaker but your spirit's strong
Pain is a burden till you sing your song
Can't take it anymore, just let it go

Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out

It's hard to be a superhero all the time
Feeling so weighed down in mid flight
Let it go, take it slow
It's okay to hang your suit up for awhile
Watching the clouds as they pass by
Soon everything's gonna be alright

Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Track Name: Solid Gold
When I look into your eyes I'm hypnotized
Stroke the nape and slide my fingers down your spine
You are all that sparkles with the starts of the horizons
Distant dreams we've captured from afar
They move into light
From another world you came and set it all aglow

Is this love, could it be love
You're solid gold
And love will set us free

Solid gold, that's what you are
Solid gold, that's what you are

Bite your flesh and let me touch your skin of velvet
Kiss your lips and feel the heat it has created
You are all that sparkles with the starts of the horizons
Distant dreams we've captured from afar
They move into light
From another world you came and set it all aglow

Is this love, could it be love
You're solid gold
And love will set us free
Is this love, could it be love
You're solid gold
And love will set us free

Solid gold, that's what you are
Solid gold, that's what you are
Solid gold, that's what you are
And no one, no one, no one's gonna tell you otherwise

Touch, stroke, feel, whisper, press, taste, breathe deeper, kiss, bite, smell, touch, feel love
Track Name: World Is On His Shoulders
The man woke up at 33 years old
Hit a crossroad, which way should he go
Spent his life living out the family dreams
Now it's his turn to finally be free
In this realization comes struggle
Through the dark times are oceans of despair
Will you give him your sweet, sweet devotion
To find the answers he's got no patience for

Can you be his shoulder to cry on
When he needs protection
Give him hope, give him love, hold him like he is everything
See his heart, hear his cry, help him find the way

The world is on his shoulders
He's bleeding through it all
Help him find the answers
He is searching for

In times of feeling the weight of the pressure
The deeper meaning is richer in reward
When he falls on his knees in the struggle
Reach out your hands, show him you'll be there
Show him dedication like Juliet
Nobody's perfect, look into yourself
Give him love, understanding, devotion
So he can break the chains that set him free

To find the answers he's got no patience for

Can you be his shoulder to cry on
When he needs protection
Give him hope, give him love, hold him like he is everything
See his heart, hear his cry, help him find the way

The world is on his shoulders
He's bleeding through it all
Help him find the answers
He is searching for

Got this world, he's got the world on his
Got this world, he's got the world on his
Got this world, he's got the world on his shoulders
On his shoulders
On his shoulders
On his shoulders
Track Name: Progression Now
What becomes of us now
Changing times in our lives
Others fought for our rights
Time to push progression now

What becomes of us now
Changing times in our lives
Others fought for our rights
Time to push progression now

It's time to make a change
Set the pace
Set ourselves free
Progression now
It's time to fight the war
Fight the pain
Live in freedom
Progression now

What becomes of us now
Changing times in our lives
Others fought for our rights
Time to push progression now

It's time to make a change
Set the pace
Set ourselves free
Progression now
It's time to fight the war
Fight the pain
Live in freedom
Progression now

We're gonna talk about the changing rhymes and changing times in which this song's about
Death, destruction, extreme poverty, nothing changing 'less we make it our fight worthy for the taking
Governments exploiting while we spend our lives distracted by the things we know we have created
Time is now to make a change 'cause the power's in the people, we are stronger in our numbers

All we need, all we need
Is progression now
All we need, all we need
Is progression now
Keep on pushing

What becomes of us now
Changing times in our lives
Others fought for our rights
Time to push progression now
Now, now
Others fought for our rights
Time to push progression now
