Livin' In Victory I still believe I’m still believing I’m still believing if I’m not receiving a thing I live for this and I’ll die for this life This is my genuine cry The love, the passion, the sorrow, the anger, the pain, the struggle, the promise This path I chose Through thick or thin No person will understand But I will never regret it I’m stepping out of these rituals Sometimes I sleep because I’m too afraid But I continue to stand up and remind myself That I am Living In Victory

Make Moves 03:01
Make Moves Genuine music for the genuine soul The key is on simplicity This is what we want to be We’re heading to a new direction Annihilate our religious mistakes We need to stop this lifelessness Wake up and become vibrant spirits No limits Keep that simple livin’ Stay straight and keep your chin up high Its your life, but live it right Make moves Step out This is our voice This is our choice Rejoice, rejoice Be proud of who we are Be wild, make noise And make our Father proud We’re not bound by religious minds It’s your judging eye That killed and watched Him die They’re lost in false judgements Ignorance is foolishness You intimidate with your lack of faith Humiliate with the stubborn moves you make Make moves Step out This our voice This is our choice We’re here to make a stand No longer pushed around We’re here to make an impact Not to put you down Let’s work in unity Sorry if you don’t agree We’re heading to a new direction Annihilate our religious mistakes We need to stop this lifelessness Wake up and become vibrant spirits No limits Keep that simple livin’ Stay straight and keep your chin up high Its your life, but live it right Genuine music for the genuine soul The key is on simplicity This is what we want to be

'Till Next Time It saddens me to see you walk away because of different views no more conversation farewell, so long But whatever satisfies each others call for lasting life It’ll be alright No more losing sight No more feeling confide No more setting aside Ignite, ignite, ignite When complications get the best of us We lack faith with lack of trust Abused the simple mind We were so blind Two different paths, two different stories Over it will be in honor and glory No more losing sight No more feeling confide No more setting aside Ignite, ignite, ignite Renewing minds Renewing souls

Roots 02:10
Roots I was seventeen years old when you gave me your present Till this day I shout out “Your presence is present” Heaviness and chills running down my body I will never let go of what this truth showed me Working and working to make an honest buck Stressing, complaining because time is almost up Looking around, looking around I'm getting jaded As drop my fist to the ground I'm feeling like I'm falling in an abyss I can't think this I need to I have to Remember, remember my roots Got to keep a positive outlook Remember, remember my roots Stay humble stay faithful Let the truth be told

A Standard Issue Stand up and fight for the true way of life Open your eyes to find life that is inside Your freedom isn't free when have hate to hold you down Raise up your fist We’re breaking new ground Living life in unity is the one and only way Trust your heart and never quit with positive things to say Breaking chains of selfish ways You'll never be the same We want equality That's all we're asking for We can break this wall we built between You and me can walk in victory This old feeling that we once knew as hate Has washed away with this new heart of faith We want equality

Rise 02:24
Rise Lift up my arms and my head up high Speaking life into my situation Striving to grasp the branch of life In this darkness there’s still that glimpse of light Still I get wrecked with the flesh of death I’m digging holes with no apparent reason I need to understand that this is just another hard knock season I need to step up let love inspire I'm tired of being tired I'm begging on my knees God help me please I want to be free from this disease Praying and searching for revival Yet I’m lifting and pulling for survival Rise above your mind Find the strength inside I'm breaking, I'm stealing back everything I'm running, I'm jumping cause of what's in me The time that I gave to this city I love Will never be in vain cause I'm a stay till its done I'm a stand my ground and I will rise above And I'll still be screaming out “Hallelujah”

Miles 02:20
Miles She was left alone trying to survive Watching her siblings everyday and night The rain kept pouring as she walked the streets The breath of life, the lust would beat Sacrificing herself self respect to be content with the day she spent She's living a life of agony With something of a future that she can't see With no room to eat Causing her siblings to fall in a cycle And no room to sleep Of regret confusion and sorrow She smiling constantly In hope to change her darkness into light The beautiful smile That can be seen for miles Pacing in circles without any ease In hope to feed her family At the end She looked for a side Trying to maintain a piece of mind Falling to her knees I can hear her scream “Help me, someone help me” So she prayed till the break of dawn Lifting up her voice singing out her songs With no room to eat Causing her siblings to fall in a cycle And no room to sleep Of regret confusion and sorrow She smiles constantly In hope to change her darkness into light The beautiful smile That can be seen for miles

Be The Change I clocked in with my boss down my back Saying that I got to pick up on their slack My friends are trippin’ I’m feeling ignored My mind is telling me to tell the cord We can start a new way of thinking We can have a new way of life We can change our whole generation If we change out minds Your day may suck and your smile is gone But together we say love on Whether or not they're nice to you Together we'll say love on I'm driving home and I’m getting a call They’re mad and it’s all my fault It’s like everybody’s losing their mind And they just want me to get back in line We can start a new way of thinking We can have a new way of life We can change our whole generation If we change out minds Your day may suck and your smile is gone But together we say love on Whether or not they're nice to you Together we'll say love on A lost of words I cant explain I'm finding victory in all of my days There's no escape in this world hate It's up to me to be the change We can start a new way of thinking We can have a new way of life We can change our whole generation If we change out minds Your day may suck and your smile is gone But together we say love on Whether or not they're nice to you Together we'll say love on Be the Change

The New Liberation I take a breathe and what do I know Here enters an individual Trying to corrupt my soul Feeding me with this great cascade You can’t control We don’t stand alone I will not give in to your illusion You warp the minds of the innocent Thinking that true life is full of ignorance You can’t control We don’t stand alone I raise my fist and scream “We’re not made of rules and regulations” I stand up for the spirit of truth This is my foundation I pledge allegiance to justice and freedom Not deception, no control, and not to your religion You can’t stop the New Liberation
