Track Name: Never Alone
Virtue is the enemy, anger now the norm
Greed the only currency keeping rich and poor both warm
You've seen enough of what was beautiful erode
Now you're running in before it all explodes

Never alone in the day of fire and ice
Never alone in the way of sacrifice
Never alone when you dare defend the right
Never alone when you're standing in the light

There are always others near, though you may not see
When the choice is crystal clear force or ever free
You'll be reaping now where many once have sowed
You're not the only one to walk a straight and narrow road

Never alone saying more than you would say
Never alone as they shout "behold the fool"
Never alone paying more than you could pay
Never alone in the stain of ridicule
Never alone when they're twisting in the knife
Never alone when you're laying down your life
Never alone at the limit of your might
Never alone you've been standing in the light

We are not alone, forged for any weather
Tear the sinews break the bones, We are bound together
We know as we are known, far seeing is our sight
Founded on the stone, Standing in the light

Never alone as the conflict rages on
Never alone in the aching of the night
Never alone til the breaking of the dawn
Never alone when you're taking up the fight
Never alone though all hope is waning dim
Never alone you're on wings of seraphim
Never alone love's the current of your flight
Never alone when you're standing in the light
Track Name: One Look
LATELY, I’M BEGINNING TO SEE MY SMALL WORLD
IN A DIFFERENT WAY
WHERE ARE MY ANSWERS, MY EQUATIONS
THIS ISN’T LIKE ME, WITHOUT WORDS TO SAY

AND DO YOU KNOW, JUST WHAT YOU’VE DONE
I DON’T THINK YOU DO, I DON’T THINK YOU SEE
YOUR PECULIAR HEART HAS ME ALL UNDONE
YOUR CRYSTAL EYES CAST THEIR SPELL ON ME
AND I’M BEGINNING TO SEE

THAT IF GOD EXISTS, WITH HIS SAINTS AND HIS ANGELS
IF MIRACLES REALLY ARE TRUE (IF GOD EXISTS)
YOU COULD MAKE BELIEVE IN THAT HEAVEN
FROM THE FEELING I GET WITH ONE LOOK FROM YOU.

I HAVE KNOWN MANY FACES BEFORE
MANY KINDS OF HEARTS, MANY KINDS OF MINDS
NOW YOU’RE HERE AND YOU’VE OPENED THE DOOR TO SOMETHING I’D NEVER THOUGHT I’D FIND

CHORUS: [REPEAT]

BRIDGE: SOMETHING IN ME IS BROKEN
AND WE’VE NEVER SPOKEN
I’D LIKE JUST A SIGN
JUST SOME TINY TOKEN
THAT YOU NOTICE ME

CHORUS: [REPEAT 2X]
Track Name: Rise Up
"I regard myself as a soldier...a soldier of peace." - Ghandi

Rise Up
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. They are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty...the pursuit of happiness." - The Declaration of Independence

Lookin' at millions under a circus tent
Watchin' a jackass chase a dumb pachyderm
Oh what a show!
Tappin' on any shoulder that I can find
Of anyone on there who might change their mind
It's time to go.
To the real world outside with those pirate ships
The drunken sailors with dirty lips
That rule the night
Shoutin' don't be afraid of those wicked men
There's more of us than there are of them
Come join the fight!

Rise up and be counted
Take your part in the solution
Linking arm in arm, to arms, to arms
Lower your guns and raise your voices
Join the peaceful revolution
Shout I'm mad as hell
and I will ring the bell of freedom

Ride with me from Boston to Phili to LA
With reason come marching
With knowledge come drumming
Let everyone hear you
Each soul that is near you
The British are coming! the British are coming!

We built a house of sticks a hall of parlor tricks
But we blame it all on our politics
Oh what a shame!
Truth is the cancer ain't just in the head
Half the body's nearly dead
We're all to blame
Time to pledge no more standing on one thin leg
Lack of principle's a powder-keg
And we can't wait
If we just say what we mean mean what we say
Take back the power we gave away
It's not too late - Grab your tea and follow me

Rise up and be counted
Take your part in the solution
Linking arm in arm with words as arms
Lower your guns and raise your voices
Join the peaceful revolution
Have you an ear to hear, an eye that sees us
We come in the Spirit of Martin, of Ghandi, of Jesus
Holding fast to the words with the power that frees us
Rise up. Make your choices
Choose the peaceful revolution
Sell what you have to sell so the devil can tell
Then let them raise their hell
And we will ring the bell of freedom
The bell of freedom
The bell of freedom
Track Name: Remember
Peace, prosperity, pride
Our wizards said there’d be no ebb to this tide
And the sages did not see the spaces to hide
Or the cracks in the footings, the termites inside

Then darkness broke through that clear morn in September
When our land saw the blackest hell
I swore what I’d be, and I would remember
The day after...

When what to my wondering worry worn eyes
Mere strangers at once turn near kindred with binding ties
City to city to wide open country skies
No left or right, black or white, hands on hearts, all please arise!

The light that shone through those dark days like an ember
Lit the fires of the citadel
And we swore what we'd be, we'd always remember
The days after the towers fell

Short memories, of braveries, of slaveries,
Prone to retreat
And walk through the door, like Rome before, forevermore
Known in defeat
The remedy, no mystery: know history
Or be doomed to repeat it.

Just seven short years, oops! we've blown it again
The bubbles this time around are bigger times ten
The Animal spirits broke loose from the pen
Can we put them back, pull the slack, right the track
But it's business as usual, we're playing the fool
Though no bodies falling to the ground, no smell of jet fuel
The carnage lying round the bend's as real and as cruel

Many realms gone before have marched to their December
While the crowds cried "all is well!"
That fate will be ours if we don't remember
The days after, the days after
The towers fell

Remember the days after
Remember the day after
Remember the day after
Remember, Remember, Remember
Track Name: America My Home (acoustic bonus track)
Like a woman convinced her worth's
in the shine of her hair, the cut of her dress
So she won't remember that under the shape of her skin
lies a heart that beats in her chest
had I forsaken, or had I forgot
If so then witness me untie the knot
Cause my God wouldn't settle for anything less

More than fertile fields more than her mighty hand
More than tower's high and ocean's white with foam
Hallelujah she's a lighthouse may she stand
America my home

what do the masses who cross over oceans
have deep in their hearts, that keeps them aglow
While we raise our glasses and gamble for gain
All the world's our stage, come join the show
But they know on earth there's still only one place
Though all in hell try like hell to erase
What my God has given to all who will know

Read the words he's written on her golden door
"All are free to find a life that each can own"
Hallelujah as they cry upon her shore
America my home

So let them come and come what may
All those who hate the light of day
Who in their arrogance and pride
Build those towers to the sky to hide
Her grand idea, her shining thought
For that so many toiled and fought
For her so many bled and died
For her not few the times I cried

So leave your mansions you have made of sand
Hold her in your heart where ere you roam
Hallelujah shout throughout the land
America my home
America my home
America my home
Track Name: Freedom Ring (acoustic bonus track)
Wonder of Wonders and Miracles true
Providence smiled and brought forth a child
Left her in the watch-care of me and of you

Let Freedom Ring, from the home to the high-rise
Let Freedom Ring, and let none despise
Let Freedom Ring, in the march of the soldier
in the fields of the farmer, the weak and the wise

When did we falter and not understand,
She must have a people of conscience and character
virtuous hearts, raising clean hands

Let Freedom Ring, for the leaders who stand
Let Freedom Ring, black, brown, white hand in hand
Let Freedom Ring, between owner and labor,
the wave of each neighbor, each voice of the land

Let Freedom Ring, in the touch of the lovers
Let Freedom Ring, in the hearts of the mothers
Let Freedom Ring, in the arms of the fathers,
the ears of children, between sisters and brothers

Now Will we defend her
Not just abroad but at home
Will we pledge sacred honor, fortune and life
No matter the darkness, the danger the strife
Track Name: Weight of the World (acoustic bonus track)
"Oh, daddy!"
The sound of your voice stops me cold as I hear you say,
"Why are you angry with me?"
Those perfect brown eyes leave me no room to hide away.

Oh Please Forgive me my son, my love
I've not been my usual self
Someday you'll know, and you'll try not to let it show

When the weight of the world's comin' heavy
And the weight of the world takes you to your end
The weight of the world, won't get the rest of me
I'll never drop a knee
I promise you I'll never bend
To the weight of the world.

There's too much at stake
Too many mouths too feed, too many hearts that need
ain't got time to bleed
I Don't know what i can take
never had no quit in me, hard to stand, hard to see,
From the gloves have been pounding me

God make me more than I am on my own
God set my mind and my will like a stone
God lift where I lack and brace my back

For the weight of the world's comin' heavy
And the weight of the world takes me to my end
The weight of the world, won't get the rest of me
I'll never drop a knee
I promise you I'll never bend to the weight of the world.

This is my gift to you,
This is my sacrifice,
And if I had it again to do
I would give it and never think, never think twice
How could I see your love
Written all over your face
Then run run away, when I should embrace

The weight of the world when it's heavy
The weight of the world when it takes me to my end
The weight of the world, won't get the rest of me
I'll never drop a knee
I promise you I'll never bend to the weight of the world.
The weight of the world
The weight of the world
Track Name: Stand (acoustic demo bonus track)
Poppa would ask me, “Boy, now what did I tell you?”
Then he would wait till I could clearly say…
Be honest, be humble, be cheerful, be brave
You won’t be perfect, but I’ll never excuse you
All I ask is that you try every day,
Be a worker, be a steward, a servant, never a slave Let the world go it’s own way
Pray you’ll always say…

I will, I will, I will, I will, I will stand
I will stand on my own
I will, I will, I will, I will, I will stand
Even if all alone

As I grew I saw the wisdom he gave me
Most cause I tested it time after time
Have faith, he’d say, be hopeful, be loving, always be kind,
I didn’t now that these were words that could save me
Not wise enough to see the reason and rhyme
In gain knowledge, be loyal, be selfless, firm in mind

Didn’t know I held the key
That will set me free…

I will, I will, I will, I will, I will stand
Stand for what I’ve been shown
I will, I will, I will, I will, I will stand
Even if all alone

I love his words…
Remember who you are, take care of our name
Your word is your bond, don’t look to lay blame
If you have done you best my son you’ll never be a shame
My greatest joy: if you tell your's the same

Now I’m a poppa in a world full of danger
God help me be a man with a backbone of steel
Above all fix my eyes on the babe in the manger
When most around me are far too gone to feel
And be patient, be persistent, be fearless, be strong
And be gracious, be selfless, and always admit when I’m wrong
And have honor , and reverence, perseverance, when trials are long
And be grateful, be grateful, be grateful…

I will, I will, I will, I will, I will stand
Stand and risk all I own
I will, I will, I will, I will, I will stand
Even if all alone
