Track Name: Just Say Yes
I just want to be
Free to do as I please
I’d think you’d want that too
But please forgive me if I assume

Those who tell us lies
Don’t want us to fly too high
They want us to stay down
On our knees, on the ground

Fear’s what brings us down
Keeps us tied down to the ground
So we live upon our knees
That don’t make much sense to me

Those who keep us down
Don’t want us to leave the ground
They don’t want us to see
Any other way to be

It’s hard to let go
It’s hard to say “yes” instead of “no”
But the time has come to change
Reconstruct and rearrange

Fear’s what brings us down
Keeps us tied down to the ground
So we live upon our knees
That don’t make much sense to me
Track Name: What We Do And Do Not Want
What I don't want
Is for you to feel pain
And I don't want
You to be a pawn in their game

If you want
To leave us behind
We'd like you to know
That we won't think you unkind

If you don't want
To stay in this world
Remember that you're free
And really, you always were

What I do want
For you to know
Is that you'll stay inside my heart
For the rest of my life, until it's my turn to go
Track Name: A Soldier's Song
I am ready to fight
For what
I think is right
And I
Am ready to die
If I
Lose the fight

And God
Knows I’m willing
To do the killing
If they
Tell me to
That’s what I’ll do
I’ll obey
Do what they say
Cause that’s what soldier’s do

So what
If children die
And women cry out
And blood
Bathes us all
Some must fall
For the good of all
It’s plain to see
Freedom is not free

And war
Is just a game
That I play
It’s all the same to me
Anyway
At home
Or a foreign land
I’ll make my stand

When
My mother saw
Me sail off
She cried
But I
Felt no shame
I’m in the game, now
And I
Won’t back down

And I
Know I might
Lose the fight
But my side
Will win
It ain’t no sin
What you do
In a war
That’s exactly what it’s for

And I
Know I’m right
To fight this fight
Stand my ground
I won’t bow down
To the enemy
It’s plain to see
Freedom is not free

And war
Is just a game
It’s my claim to fame
So my name
Might live on
And when I’m gone
If you’re free
You may remember me
Track Name: Universal Language
Things may be the way they are
But somehow I still found a way to travel far
Now that I've been round the globe
I'd like to share a bit of what it is I think I know

Everywhere i've been people are the same
With different colored skin and different names
Different clothes, different gods, different drinks in their bars
But people everywhere liked the sound of my guitar

The politicians lie and make their self serving plans
Our so called leaders plot to keep us as divided as they can
The power lies with the people the kings and queens know that's true
But they know how to keep us fighting so there's not much we can do

It's hard to say that one way is best
And I just don't believe some are better than the rest
But people learn from people how to keep other people down
I've seen it in the cities, I've seen it in the towns

Things may be the way they are
But music helps me to stay free and travel far
I like to get into my guitar and ride
It takes me way up high above and deep down inside

A universal language is one we all understand
If you're yellow, white, black, red or brown, a woman or a man
For a Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Pagan, Atheist or Jew
For a Buddhist or a Shaman, good music is the truth
Track Name: Going Better Now
Cold, hard rain
It’s gonna come down
And wash all the dirt
Right into the ground

Some kind of rain
You know it’s about to fall
Nothing but a shame
To do nothing at all

I fell down
Then I got up again
Things are going better now
Then they were then

I fell down
But I got up again
I’m doing better now
Than I was then

Better days
Gonna come round again
Winds of change are blowing
They're blowing, my friend

Better days
Gonna come back to stay
The wind’s gonna blow
The dust away
Track Name: Not Today, Not Tomorrow
Lifting you up
Has made me tired
It's time for me to quit your game
On my own I'll fly much higher

I am not now
Nor was I really ever
Yours, to push and pull around
Yours, for your endeavors

I don't really want to lead you
But I can no longer follow
Yesterday I was your fool
But not today and not tomorrow

I know
Something
Better is waiting for me
I'm gonna
Leave now
Be who it is I want to be

We did some good things
In our time together
We sailed through clear seas
And bad bad weather

But with you now I'm feeling old
I'm not at all inspired
That's the truth I just told
So I guess I'm not a liar

I don't really want to lead you
But I can no longer follow
Where you lead I won't go
Not today, not tomorrow
Track Name: The Pages Inside
All you who judge the cover, not the book
Why don't you take a better look?
You have to get to the pages inside
To find out what's real behind the lies

I had a friend who chose to believe
What people said instead of asking me
He judged me falsely, it hurt me to my core
It's sad but we're not friends no more

It seems the whole world has gone blind
Almost no one tries to look inside
How things appear to be
On the surface is all that is seen

The truth is easy to conceal
Repeat a lie enough to make it real
The truth gets buried, the truth gets dead
When lies become the "facts" inside our heads

Some people are open books
You can size them up with just one look
But most of us keep our pages closed
To keep from getting too exposed

It seems the whole world has gone blind
Almost no one tries to look inside
How things appear to be
On the surface is all that is seen

Read me just like you would a book
Don't judge me till you take a better look
You have to get to the pages inside
To find what's real behind the lies
Track Name: Where You Are
Where you are in the world
Is where I am heading
I want to be close
Everyone can see it

I don't want to be apart
I want you by my side
It's no good when you are far
I get so messed up inside

Please
Please
Stay by my side
I need
Need
You by my side

We're all alone in this world
You and me
You are my home, girl
So please don't leave

I don't want to be apart
I need you by my side
It's all wrong when you are far
I just don't feel alive

I
Want
You to know
You
Are
Deep in my soul

With you by my side
I can fly and walk through fire
You're the reason why
I'm so inspired

I don't want to be apart
I need you by my side
I know it's wrong but when you're far
I think of suicide

So please
Please
Stay by my side
I need
Need
You by my side
Track Name: The Red Pill
On this road
That I’m traveling
I can see
The threads unraveling

Everything
Has a number
I want to wake up
From this slumber

I want to go there
Can you take me
But not too fast
Don’t break me

If it’s real
I want to see
Ask the question
Find the key

I don’t want to
Be just a number
I want to wake up
From this slumber

This isn’t real
Will you wake me
But not too fast
Don’t break me

I don’t want to
Get sucked under
But I’d prefer
Not to have to wonder

All my life
I’ve been waiting
Hanging on
Anticipating
Track Name: Turn Off The TV
I'm gonna turn off the tv
And feel my heartbeat
I'd prefer to walk than
Stay in the back seat
And get driven around

It's a beautiful time
To be living and
I don't have to eat
The crap they're giving
I can grow my own

They only show us
All the bad things
They inject us with
So many sad things
To keep us full of fear

I'd prefer to see
Some good things
They just tell me
All the bad things
To control my mind

Please don't tell me
What you're thinking
I don't really care anymore
And I'm tired of sinking
Of you pulling me down

It's time to wake up
And feel my heartbeat
Enough is enough
Gonna get on my feet
And take back my world

This is my time
Cause I'm alive now
That gives me the right
To live my life how
I want it to be

It's time to wake up
And feel our hearts beat
Enough is enough
Let's get on our feet
And take back our world

This is our time
Cause we're alive now
And we have the right
To decide how
Our world should be

I'm gonna turn off the tv
And feel my heartbeat
Life is too short
To stay in the backseat
And get driven around
