Track Name: Courage To Grow
This is a song for those
who lost their hope
a long a long time ago
I know someday that you will find it somehow
Because you're not too old
to accomplish goals
and all the answers are within your soul
its up to you, you gotta figure it out
Uh huh

Whether you want love or money
Good fortune or fame
You want a brand new card
You want the world to change
You better take some action right now, oh yes
Because there's nothing in the world that you can't get
So don't fill your life with confusion and regret
You better take some chances right now

Well you can gain the world
but for the price of your soul
yes I know, well I know, yes I know
you can gain the world for the price of your soul
but I hope you take the road less traveled
and I hope you find the courage to grow
well I hope you find the courage to grow

So now you're 45
and you realize
just what you wanna do with your life
just took some time for you to figure it out
Cause everyone one of us
Has a purpose here
Sometimes its hidden underneath your fear
Just takes some time for the truth to come out

So whether you want love or money
Good fortune or fame
You want a brand new card
You want the world to change
You better take some action right now, oh yes
Because there's nothing in the world that you can't get
So don't fill your life with confusion and regret
You better take some chances right now

Well you can gain the world
but for the price of your soul
yes I know, well I know, yes I know
you can gain the world for the price of your soul
but I hope you take the road less traveled
and I hope you find the courage to grow
well I hope you find the courage to grow
Track Name: Heart Like A Lion
[Chorus]
A heart like a lion, a burning like fire
Waiting just to be set free
A heart like a lion, a burning like fire
How can I bear captivity
Some they tell me I'm a fool, a fool who walks this road alone
So afraid of making changes, remember that nothing is carved in stone
Oh tell me why we are so afraid of the secrets locked within our souls
Everything that we're made of is dying just to be exposed oh yea

[Pre chorus]
So don't turn your back on yourself, cause there's nowhere to run
You know your life's aint a practice run
It's time to wake up you're mind oh yea
For maybe tomorrow will never come or maybe it will but by then it's too late uh huh
There's nothing left to do but cry
So now you cry and you don't know why, and now you cry but you don't know why

[Chorus]

So what you want to be now well it's time to realize
That everything you need now has been right in front of your eyes
Don't point your fingers and blame, remember it's never too late to change
Don't point your fingers and blame, remember it will be okay

[Pre chorus]

[Chorus]

Track Name: Feeling Alright
Well it’s about that time for us to look around and meet somebody new
Let’s all welcome in familiar faces, perhaps somebody who,
Has got a conflict in their life
Tell them you’re sorry, but there’s ways to change the wrong to right
See we can sit in a distant haze and watch rain clouds pour thoughts of greatness and help our troubles sail real far away.
Well it’s a struggle – everyday we’re stressing, but what’s a life without dedication?
I’m trying to pick up the souls intention to soak in music relaxation
We’re feeling good, we’re feeling alright
We’re feeling good, we’re feeling alright
In a moment I’ll be on my way, to better days, while life is changing
And even though I’ve had my share of pain, I’ve been sympathizing and realizing
I’ve got a feeling that we can be a better friend
Simply complimenting every now and then
In the morning I wake up and miss the night before
Cuz I love the music more and more
See we can sit in a distant haze and watch rain clouds pour thoughts of greatness to help our troubles sail real far away
While it’s a struggle everyday we’re stressing, but what’s a life without dedication?
I’m trying to pick up the souls intention to soak in music relaxation
Track Name: Ordinary Girl

Track Name: Attention Span
Who can this be, this stranger at my door?
Although I know I’ve seen her once before
Come on, why can’t I remember your name now
But in a way it’s best that I don’t say:

“It’s a pleasure to meet ya
Once again for the night
I can’t promise my focus”
Is it me? Or is it my attention span?

I see the way you stare at me oh girl
I like the way you sway your hair and twirl
Come on, why can’t I remember your name now
But in a way it’s best that I don’t say

Chorus

Is this more than just routine?
Weigh it down on me
Give me more than just my needs
Weigh it down on me
And we’re still riding high
And we’re still riding high

Verse 2
Chorus
Track Name: Green To Black
Do you feel it now music’s up in ya
Do you feel it loud straight to the ears man
It’s that mean bass singing pleasure to meet ya
The green and black throw it up so we see ya

Do you feel the sound? It’s coming straight through the waves
While the music from the Earth keeps us sane
I’m feeling that herb when the sun hits my face
You create your mind so make your mental space

Much respect to all the people thinking green
Not just the color but the message in between
Here’s a mental weapon that you’ll use frequently
To stop evil people and end their beliefs

Green turned to black, green smoked to black, green burnt to black
Yea that’s what we stand for

Well Mr. tough guy he fights physically
When all the people really need is some peace
It are these moments where we turn to our needs
It never caused no death nor disease

Don’t try to make it seem like we’re some foolish youth
Throwing away our lives, but we’re searching for the truth
Don’t need authority/rules while we go unheard
See there isn’t any crime using herbs

Much respect to all the people thinking green
Not just the color but the message in between
Here’s a mental weapon that you use frequently
To stop evil people and end their beliefs

Chorus
Track Name: On My Mind
You got me screaming from the top of my lungs
When are you ever gonna givea me some?
I hope you come around from time
and everything will be just fine fine fine, cause
I see that you got what I want
I see that you got what I need, yeah
so come on baby, come and get with me

It seema like yesterday
The words were on the tip of my tongue
but now I feel like a rat in a cage
girl, you've got me sprung because

Love, love, love is on my mind

Well, you never even talk to me
I'm not a begger but I'm down on my knees
If I ever get the courage to do, yeah
Oh half of the things I wanted to do to you
I saw you walking away in a distance now, Whoa oh yeah
Walking away in a distance now, whoahyeah

It seema like yesterday
The words were on the tip of my tongue
but now I feel like a rat in a cage
girl, you've got me sprung because

Love, love alalove, its on mind
Love, love, lolove, its on my mind

Oh yeah, Its on my mind
Track Name: Running
Chorus

Tell me what you're running from, she said everything and everyone
Tell me what you're running from, what you're running from
Tell me what you're running from because your past it can't be undone
Oh tell me what you're running from, what you're running from

She wakes up every morning, thoughts weighing heavy on her mind
She's hoping today will be a better day than the ones behind
She's having some trouble getting going, from the fear she's paralyzed
She puts her face into her hands and then she cries

Pre chorus

She's so tired, she closes her eyes trying to live up to a standard that the world provides
She's so tired, she closes her eyes trying to live up to a standard that the world provides

Chorus

No hope for tomorrow, no hope for today
No hope for anything that comes her way
She's so used to feeling empty inside
No reasons to live, more reasons to die
At least that's what she feels inside
Will she ever find the courage to change

Pre chorus

Bridge
She's been running away so long, running away from home
Will she ever get back, I don't know, no I don't know
You can see it in her eyes and you can see it in her smile

Chorus
Track Name: Night Crawler
Look straight ahead in the distance oh yeah there's a nightcrawler
You'd better move quick, don't you know she's a night stalker
Look straight ahead in the distance oh yeah there's a nightcrawler
Yeah you'd better move quick, don't you know she's a night stalker

She'll take away all the love that you feel, she'll want to suck up and steal
She wants to look around town with her wicked eye, but we'll love and come real
She'll try to cover herself in the underground, she thinks she's got it locked down
But take it from me she's so lonely


Look straight ahead in the distance
Yes there's a nightcrawler walking with her fist clenched, but raise up
And feed her some happiness
And before you know it she'll be smiling with some love
And yes, allright now let me tell you what we're trying to suggest:
Once again, Rebelution on a loving quest
Tell her to look at the ocean when the sun sets
And then put out our hands for the unfortunate
Allright pick up the slack from the wickedness
Straigh up clean up your manners and your etiquette


Look straight ahead in the distance, oh yeah there's a nightcrawler
Yeah you'd better move quick, don't you know she's a night stalker
Look straight ahead in the distance, oh yeah there's a nightcrawler
Yeah you'd better move quick, don't you know she's a night stalker


Late night, 3 in the morning yeah, you can hear her footsteps one after the other and…
Nobody ever seen her talk back, nobody ever seen her walking on the right track
Tell me do you know where your soul is?
You glitter but the gold's up in the night's mist, and it's crawling up on ya
How many people in this house tonight feelin' that sense of aggravation on a lonely night


Look straight ahead in the distance
Yes there's a nightcrawler walking with her fist clenched, now raise up
And feed her some happiness
And before you know it she'll be smiling with some love
And yes, allright now let me tell you what we're trying to suggest
Once again, Rebelution on a loving quest
Tell her to look at the ocean when the sun sets
And put out our hands for the unfortunate allright
And pick up the slack from the wickedness
Straigh up clean up your manners and your etiquette allright


Look straight ahead in the distance, oh yeah there's a nightcrawler
Yeah you'd better move quick, don't you know she's a night stalker
Look straight ahead in the distance, oh yeah there's a nightcrawler
Yeah you'd better move quick, don't you know she's a night stalker
Track Name: Other Side
How you feeling? How you feeling? People, take it easy can’t you see that I’m busy now
I’ve got a knack for some trouble believe me, and lately I’ve been trying to block it out
I’ve got a strange little other side, a temptation that I try to hide
Just like a pretty girl saying do or die
And I can tell when I look at you
That you’ve been going what I’m going through
The same thing happens, the same thing happens
But I’ve been thinking I can be a better man see
Instead of taking life for granted I feel lucky to be alive, good how I’ll feel inside
And from now on we’re taking big strides

Hold up, now yes I’m on something great, if you know you relate, no one’s perfect
And if you think you can’t count your mistakes, think again, cuz I know that you can
Dear sir, I’m pretty sure that we grow every day based on simple mistakes that we make
There ain’t no easy way, there ain’t no easy way
And I can tell when I look at you
You know exactly what I’m going through
The same thing happens, the same thing happens
But you keep thinking you can be a better man see
Instead of taking life for granted you’ll feel lucky to be alive, good how you’ll feel inside And from now on we’re taking big strides
