Track Name: What They Like
She’d never traveled there before
What was wanted,
When I pleaded she’s unsure
I could see the comfort needed
As she cried
But I swore I wouldn’t feed it

When her sadness had no answers
And we’ve outlined what we stand for
There’s a glow beneath the surface
Did what I could to learn it, yeah

We’ve got it all here
And if we fall here
We’re together you can call, dear

We’ve got it all, so
We can choose to grow
Through the highs and the lows

We are saints
We can be strident
We are teachers of the wisest
We live in details most surmise
We’re not here to beg or prove
Ourselves to those who proudly use
The veil of personal disguises

We’ve got it all here
And if we fall here
We’re together you can call, dear

We’ve got it all, so
We can choose to grow
Through the highs and the lows
Track Name: Bravery Today
I don’t claim to know it all
Not at all
But I’ve found what works for me
You and I may have
Different answers to this fall
But it doesn’t mean
We can’t find peace
Giving it all we’ve got
Now’s important times
Giving it all we’ve got is
How we walk the line
Giving it all we’ve got
The only option I see
Isn’t it better than
Everlasting war
There’s peace inside
We bring it out to life
Where peace resides
All life is bright
Can you let your feelings go
Or do they control you
Can we share in real moments
Please
Let’s move on in strength
Let’s move forward be brave
Bravery today
Saves our tomorrow
Track Name: Stay
Don’t give in
Right where you are
Stay right where you are

When the endless pathways present themselves
Don’t you fret and get in the way
Get in touch with yourself
When the world is loud
And you don’t know who you’ve been listening to
Take the time
Get to solitude
If other people have a problem
Cause you stopped the catering to them
It’s for the best
If other people
Have a problem when you’re honest
Well it’s for the best
Don’t give in the
To the place inside
That says everyone needs my time
Don’t give in
To the wild idea that says
I don’t need to rest, ever

Stay right where you are

Swim inside your mind and
Find all the things you believe, fast
Trace them back
And have your reasons
In heart and mind
Heart and mind
Don’t give into the world
Telling you don’t be selfish
Be selfish
Maybe all these things they’re suggesting you do
Are not for you
Are not made with you in mind

Stay right where you are
Track Name: Claim
It’s time for fire
I think we’re all a little
Different in a vicious kind of way
It’s not required
But as the kingdom dreams
I’m listening to ancients from
A far away place

You are the greatest light
This world has ever seen
We mean it
Don’t think it takes away
From anyone else
For you to beam it
Human definitions aren’t fitted
To the world of grace
You are spectacular
You are immaculate
And it’s okay to claim

I trembled in the palace
Of my turn to speak
They’re calling us pariahs
We were just unique
I screamed inside
As all their eyes landed on me
But I refuse to soothe
The burn of this awakening

We are unafraid of
Making mistakes
We will do our best to
Re-new re-late
We re-turn to sender
Inauthentic soul
We don’t listen when they
Doubt how far we’ll go
We stand in spirit
We use our mind
We know the truth when
We hear it every time
We do remember

Our given name
We know it’s time to
Claim, claim, claim, claim

You are the greatest light
This world has ever seen
We mean it
It doesn’t take away from anyone
Else for us to beam it
Human definitions aren’t fitted
To the world of grace
We are spectacular
We are immaculate
And it’s okay to claim

Self-effacing diatribes
will get you nowhere
Question all your
feelings don’t expect to get there
Apathy’s a symptom
of not raising the bar
Indifference is a
systematic plan to disarm
Targeted distractions
have us walking through sleep
Freedom comes from knowing that we never were weak
Give away our powers
when we choose to attack
Oppression feeds on those who fight the knife in their back
Track Name: Notice
There’s a way you look
I can’t get it out of my mind
Like a light inside
It’s flashing out of your eyes
Would you be my guide
Would you be my guide

There’s a way you speak
I can’t get it out of my memory
Has me looking weak
Oh I see
Your strength is calling me
You’re waiting for
Me

Haven’t you
Haven’t you
Had enough
Haven’t you
Felt my love
From afar

This is a notice
We’ve got to hold this tight
This is a notice
We’ve got to hold this tight
Track Name: Invitation
Cold, alone
Broken bones
Could you take me home
In and out
Muffled shouting
Babe, don't pout
You're downtown

Met alone
Where we going
Hands are moving round
Scared, invaded
Strained, ashamed and
Is this my fault

We are equal but I'm fighting you
I never once said that I invited you

Who can I tell
Don't wish me well
Just believe me
Eyes empty and all

Humiliated
Blamed and hated
This is my fault

We go on and on and on
On and on and on
Pleading for the wrongs to be righted
Dying so we won't have to hide it longer

We are equal but I'm fighting you
I never once said I invited you
All the names we're called
And you only look
For all the things you say we should have done
Have done, have done

It's not how much spent
It isn't where you went
Or any style of dress
Seems like common sense

We are ancients from the greatest moon
All life in our womb
Power us, and you've got power, too
But don't assume that you're due an invitation

We are equal but I'm fighting you
I never once said I invited you
All the names we're called
And you only look
For all the things you say we should have done
We're done, we're done
Track Name: More Than Mind
I am not what I do
I am not my talent or the challenges I’ve gotten through
I am not the tone I use
I may not be like you

I am not where I’m from
I am not my plans, I am not regretful for what I have not done
I am not the only muse
I may be just like you

We are not defined by our work
We are undefined
Many of us struggle
To know our worth,
But we are more than mind

We are made of grit & grace
Both are sublime
Many of us struggle
To know our place
But we are more than mind

You are not the friends you have
You are not the art you make
These are only symbols of what we bring
Into this world
But we are not these things

You are not what makes you laugh
You are not the risks you take
These are only symbols of we sing
Into this world
But we are not are not these things

There is a message in the works
There’s a truth we must re-learn
All the secrets in the open
We can feel them when we focus
Reevaluate the trend
Of being afraid to make misteps
Love, our value’s never at stake
Just make your way

We are not defined by our work
We are undefined
Many of us struggle
To know our worth,
But we are more than mind

We are made of grit & grace
Both are sublime
Many of us struggle
To know our place
But we are more than mind

I am not afraid of your fears
I see clearly why we’re here
Don’t compare yourself to them
Just take your steps

Leave the judgment, leave your haste
Any choices made in vain
Cause I’m not here to relent
All the beauty we forget

Make the time to find within
Every thought and every whim
Question everything
While keeping strong inside
Way to do it’s not been taught
Love, I know it’s not our fault
But we’re certainly
The ones sent here to rise
To rise, to rise, to rise
To rise, to rise, to rise
