Track Name: The Gift Of Music
Verse 1:
With open eyes and an open mind, an open intention to live with peace inside
We’re bound to find the truth in time
Gonna spread these wings above the ground I fly
And I won’t look back, never wonder why, went to the left, went to the right
Had to loose myself to find the light and the music kept the movement alive
So breathe in and breathe out, let it take you to a higher ground
Soothe your soul with feet to dance just give it a chance, find true romance
Let the gift of music breathe you in, take you in

Music is the melody, I find love in the strangest forms
With the peace inside our family, ain’t no harm, negativity is gone, we’re moving on
Moving on from hatred, greed & lies, movin’ back home
Fell in love with the music and the rest just ain’t important no more

Verse 2:
With open eyes and an open mind
Best you be countin’ your blessings na don’t be wastin’ time
Truth inside for all of us to find
Negativity grows where the beast resides, positivity flows where the love divides
And the children cry til they free there mind, none but ourselves can free our minds
Mr. Bob Marley he always said it right my friend
Find your voice through the noise and live free with a choice
Don’t let nobody tell ya it can’t be done, humble yourself you already won
Let the gift of music, bring you in it has begun
Track Name: Wake On A Plane
If I wake on a plane I’m a be okay
Peace sign in the air ya know I’m feelin’ free
Wonder where I’m gonna go today
If I wake on a train west bound to the bay
Tell my people that I swear I’ll be back someday
Tell ‘em I was born to live this way, like a nomad

Verse 1:
I’m a be like my old self, talkin’ about my true self
Must love one’s self n’ if I get out of here alive
I’m a cut ties with my stagnant ways, ya know I’m gonna take my heart’s advise
If I should run, if I should hide, if I’m gonna leave everything behind
It’s a long road when you’re on your own, no one to direct you where to go
Gotta take the risk, gotta follow it & you’re never gonna be the same again
Have faith in yourself and know you’re on your way home
Verse 2:
Well I said hey yo what you got on me, I’m a free soul we go
Wherever we please and we rock n’ roll to break of dawn got it goin’ on
Na never gonna stop that’s fo sho
Gotta keep it fresh, keep that feeling blessed
If you ever grow old then ya failed the test
It’s a long road and you’re gonna stay young if you keep that feeling strong
Pre-Chorus --> Chorus
Track Name: Balance & Purpose
Verse 1:
Well I don’t pay much attention to the haters, I’m a fair guy
I like to see both sides of the table with my two eyes
In this crazy life one thing I’ve learned, you’re gonna get by
You help your brother when he’s down he return the favor it’s all god it’s alright but

Flip on the TV, I can’t believe, the world is fighting, mother nature’s crying
Wake in the morning all I want to see is my people rising, together uniting
When are we gonna go back home?

Livin’ life with a balance & purpose, time will tell what my worth is
Got this love for sale and ya know my heart is well

Verse 2:
Well I’m a hard working man stackin’ up that paper, ya know I’m on the grind
I like to get it while it’s hot don’t wait for favors, but on the inside
When I put that money aside to find the truth in life
All I really need is right in front of my eyes, love conquers all in time

Pre-Chorus --> Chorus
Track Name: Flow
Verse 1:
I’m heading out look over me, lord knows I’m sure to fall in a beautiful display
Behold the great wide open comin’ to take you where you’re meant to be
At least that’s what they say and I found the truth is showin’up where you least expect it
There is desire in my darkest hour to ride ride the flow of life, high & low it goes
You never know just where your life will roam, flow and you flow
In this dream that we call life, I find its not that hard to become whoever you want to be
Fear not no strings attached you drop that weight right off your back
You put yourself where your mind can be free
So many they lock their chains, throw away the keys
You can’t live in a penitentiary
Let go ride the flow of life high or low it swings
You never know just where this life will lead

No you can’t follow, not none of their dreams
Lived this whole life just trying to find some peace
So now you find its time, time to open up the mind and live free

Verse 2:
Coming down, down, down, is there anyone to catch my fall?
I pick myself up again, know in these hard times I find grace & love
Staring right back at me so I let go and rewind my life
Let it all go just to watch it all unwind
If I design the world through my eyes, that’s mine to define
Live it up, run with the flow, never gonna let it go
