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 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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
