Track Name: Baby (Intro)
i'm tired of fightin'
i want peace not war
it's got me thinkin' honey
what is this all for?
tryin' to dialogue
but i can only
soliliquy
Track Name: Promised Land
take you take you to the promised land
i will take you baby just hold my hand
i will take you take you to the promised land
i will take you baby just hold my hand

i was going round your mayday heart
felt the pain he laid that harmed you
holdin' back a fool so stuck in the pain you holdin' too
oh i

chorus

the day's so sour
baby my hours on you
they don't they dont keep me no
all the miles sweet on you

chorus

ooh hold on to my hand
take you to the higher ground so true

chorus
Track Name: Thinkin'
moon shinin'
i'm triple star slanted (orion)
i'm thinkin on how to save the planet

because years of neglect because we haven't turn out yet
because all the time will run up
and the Rain Slayer will be enough
we gotta act now
we gotta go
and think about the future

oh you've been gazin' long
tryin' sing your cold heart along
you say the time isn't right for you
but the starry night is aligned so true
you see all the crooked lines
from all the lyin' people crimin'
and climbin' up on your face
for this compromise Lord
lost in this rat race
so take the time take it up
cuz the fire's gold will be enough
we gotta act now
we gotta go and think about the future

we can't live
in a past
pastime paradise no more
we can only live in that next place
on the horizon
better greater than we know
Track Name: Music's Losing its Soul
i'm afraid that music's losing
i'm afraid that music's losing its soul

i'm afraid that music's alivewithout a beat
layed out for those who see
i'm afraid that we
don't know which way to go
which way from where to find our souls

he oh heart i hope you never leave
but no more compromise
you song's all i need

chorus

baby i'm losing the music
it's hard to lie for acclaim gotta refuse it
it's like my food it's like my pray
i can't confuse it

hey oh heart i hope you never leave
but no more compromise
your song's all i need

chorus

assemblin' songs that pass
they don't know we need some real love music to last
hold off the Ties love's not for sale
can't sell a lie just for retail

chorus

music's on my wall
gonna make me lose control...
Track Name: Playin' Music
i be chillin' with the band
i be chillin' with Rafalaks
i be chillin' with band
i be chillin' with the Rafalaks

hit it to the bounce to the beat
the melodies deep down like the sea
ok
to the brother and back

you know how we do it in the evenin'
is how we do it in the day
walkin' workin' prayin'
singin' till it all fades
hit me with the beat
i wanna take it to the streets
i wanna play it to the beat
i need a map to the concrete
you know i need a bridge
you know i need a bridge

you know how we
do it all day
so we gotta bring it together in the night time
and now we gonna
let it shine on to the moon and the stars
we are

playin' music
playin music music
playin' music
playin' music oh oh
playin' music
music

it's hard to sing and make up words at the same time
but you know when I gotta rhythm
you know i can make the words shine
and if the words come out
i don't know if they mean something good
but sometimes a melody comes out and it's understood
then i go back and put some words onto the beats
then i go back and put some more words to the beats
then i go back and put the Uh with the beat
the i stop then i clap you know it's time for . breakdown

you know how we
do it all day
so we gotta brit it together in the night time
and now gonna
let it shine on to the moon and the stars
we are

chorus
Track Name: Give Your Heart a Chance
i know that life can be
though on ya baby
i know that life is rough but don't lose the sweet stuff
you know it gets mo betta baby
you just gotta try
life is so much sweeter than you know
so don't close your heart
make it dry

give your heart a chance
give your heart a chance
give your heart a chance
give your heart a chance

you got hurt sometime
and your mind wants to protect your heart
from gettin' disappointed again
from gettin' hurt again
so you don't make any friends
and you don't make any deeper connections
because you want to protect yourself and your health
life is gonna push you down
so pick yourself back off the ground

chorus

don't stay alone forever babe
life will be so strange without one
to love and to hold and
to feel in control with your heart
and your mind and your soul
will find joy
don't let go
don't let go
don't get lost into your sorrow
don't let go
hold my hand

Track Name: Rainbows
you are, from across the coast
so you're there, all alone
you made this room, your home
you were, ears so wide, eyes so bright
so hard to process, the shiny lights

when you're alone, everything is gone
when you're alone, everything is stone

so Sads taken you, down the road, unbearable
oh so sad, how I want to be there

so how are we, going to be free?
so sad are we, gonna have to leave?

when you're alone, everything is stone
when you're alone, free and out your home

but no one, really knows how low
and no one, can supprot you on the road

when you're alone, you move out your home
when you're alone, we move out your home

i hope you see, the rainbows
I hope the rain, makes the seeds grow
the suffering, know the sorrow
happiness I sing, make it better tomorrow
