Track Name: Crazy
I'm goin crazy, help me
See I don't know exactly what it could be
All I know is that I never seem to agree
With mankind, that's why I'm sending out this plea
You know I lost my mind

But, then again,
Is it a sin
To overstand
The will of man
It comforts me
To disagree
Reality, distorts my sanity

I'm goin crazy, I know
I'll tell ya'll why, because my baby told me so
And that's no lie, she said my blues was bringin her down
And it's all on me for me to be hangin around
You know it hurt me so

But, then again,
Is it a sin
To overstand
The will of man
It comforts me
To disagree
Reality, distorts my sanity

I'm goin crazy, and I know
So I guess it's time for me to finally let ya'll know
That I've lost my mind and the only way it can be found
Is til no end come back and bring that Sun-Dried sound
You know we lost our minds

But, then again,
Is it a sin
To overstand
The will of man
It comforts me
To disagree
Reality, distorts my sanity
Track Name: Hawaii
I wanna be in Kona, I wanna be in Maui
Where everything around me is utter beauty
I see your smilin face, something I could never replace
I think I'm fallin in love with you here in the whole place

The only place to go you already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go I already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go you already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go I already know, is Hawaii

I see the tide is risin, it's taking me away from you
So I'm thinkin secret rendezvous down in Honolulu
Cause I see your smilin face, something I could never replace
I think I'm drifitin' away with you here in this whole place

The only place to go you already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go I already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go you already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go I already know, is Hawaii

Maui in the summer, you know I love the weather
Kona in the winter cause I love when we're together. (x4)

The only place to go you already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go I already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go you already know, is Hawaii
The only place to go I already know, is Hawaii
Track Name: Trouble
I see the trouble now
I feel them creepin' around
They hear that sweet, sweet sound
And I think we're in trouble now

I watch them move through the night
They know just what I like
So I make them pillow bite
She'll make me feel alright
I love to move those hips
She loves when I lick those lips
Electric fingertips
Come on girl that's the shit

I see the trouble now
I feel them creepin' around
They hear that sweet, sweet sound
And I think we're in trouble now

She comes through my back door
She knows what's next in store
And I know I'm packing more
And I'm thinkin' she's no whore
We're movin side to side
She grips it tight to ride
And I'm sinkin back inside
She'll make me feel alright

I see the trouble now
I feel them creepin' around
They hear that sweet, sweet sound
And I think we're in trouble now
Track Name: Next Year
I'm sleeping with your shadow and silhouette
Tracing down the lines back to every regret
I watch it burn away like a cigarette
Ash into the sunset, These feelings never forget
Pretensions building fast like an unpaid debt
You're searching for an answer you'll never collect
It leaves me feeling broken to know you're upset
These tears are getting me wet, This isn't over yet

But when I'm movin' forward you're stealing my time
Thinking like a thief, you just take what you find
I'll tell you what I'm doing, I leave this behind
Listen up baby, I'm not changing my mind

Cause ever since you left I've been living in fear
And I lost everything that I held dear
So I don't wanna be anywhere near here
By this time next year, By this time next year.

The sound of your silence is holding me down
When I'm in your presence, you push me around
The answer to your question is what I have found
So you're stealing my sound, My doubt is profound
Your hostage holding tactics are always the same
You're looking for someone else to place the blame
And I won't bite my tongue because I can't refrain
These feelings remain, And I'm feeling the pain

But when I'm movin' forward you're stealing my time
Thinking like a thief, you just take what you find
I'll tell you what I'm doing, I leave this behind
Listen up baby, I'm not changing my mind

Cause ever since you left I've been living in fear
And I lost everything that I held dear
So I don't wanna be anywhere near here
By this time next year, By this time next year.
Track Name: Let Go
I don't know but it's been said
You can't find love in the books that you've read
Or the tapes that you play, you sing to yourself
Or the old shoebox that you keep on the shelf
With the notes that he wrote, a few years ago
Or the rocks that he throws outside your window
You say when you find him, oh how you'll know
You'll hold him real tight and you won't let him go

Baby you don't have to let go
I'll say it again now
Baby you don't have to let go
Baby you don't have to let go
I've been trying to tell you
Baby you don't have to let go

I don't know but when I grow old
I wanna have someone that I can hold
And be close to at night, Say it's alright
But I read all those books and I took a few looks
On how to find love in the notes that I took
Now that I've found her oh how I know
I'll hold her real tight and I won't let her go

Baby you don't have to let go
I'll say it again now
Baby you don't have to let go
Baby you don't have to let go
I've been trying to tell you
Baby you don't have to let go

Because you're mine
Baby I'll cross the line
Keep grippin you tight
Darlin' all through the night
Just so you'll know
Baby I won't let you go
Just so you'll know
Babe I won't let you

Baby you don't have to let go
I'll say it again now
Baby you don't have to let go
Baby you don't have to let go
I've been trying to tell you
Baby you don't have to let go
Track Name: Positive Vibe
Being positive is the only way to live
You reap what you sow and you get what you give
So spread it all around
Feel the movement with the sound
And see this ONE LOVE NATION
Come rising from the ground

It won't always be the same,
We can evolve through change
It won't always be the same, no.
It won't always be the same,
We can evolve through change
It won't always be the same, no.

The positive vibe is the reason I'm alive
And with every breath of air you know I'm dying to strive
To shed some light upon the man,
Let them know I overstand
And maybe they will realize that we are part of a plan

It won't always be the same,
We can evolve through change
It won't always be the same, no.
It won't always be the same,
We can evolve through change
It won't always be the same, no.

Acknowledging the might of the rhyme
You know I decide to do something positive with my time
Elevate my mind, Staying steady on this grind
Cause the positive light is what I'm trying to shine
I heat it up hotter than the sun
You know the fun has just begun
And these kids is on the run
So I twist it up and I pass to the left
I'm spreading positive vibes with every single breath
Make it my mission, Resort to intuition
Positivity here, that is my only single mission
So no more wishin', Time to make you feel inspired
Just know the positive vibe's the only thing required.

It won't always be the same,
We can evolve through change
It won't always be the same, no.
It won't always be the same,
We can evolve through change
It won't always be the same, no.
Track Name: Stand
It's just the way that you are
It's not the way that I am
It's just the way you think that you're the only one with the plan
You think that you know it all
Everything's all about you
But you will never know the way a friend should always be true

So I look ahead today
There's no comin back this way
Cause it's all been said and done
You won't ruin any of my fun
No there's no comin back today
I won't even look your way
Cause it's all been said and done
You won't ruin any of my fun
Yeah, Yeah, You won't stand in my way
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

It's just the way that you are
It's not the way that I am
It's just the way you think that you're the only one with the plan
I don't know what to think of
This predicament we've found
I'm not sure what to make of all the sights and all of this sound
I don't know where this thing goes
I don't know when it will stop
All I know is that I'll be looking down at you from the top

So I look ahead today
There's no comin back this way
Cause it's all been said and done
You won't ruin any of my fun
No there's no comin back today
I won't even look your way
Cause it's all been said and done
You won't ruin any of my fun
Yeah, Yeah, You won't stand in my way
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

It's like one, two, three
Them little birdies fly away
So I got on the rooftop and I found the words to say
Cause I was standing on the corner
I was playing this song
And don't you know that these people came along
Clappin their hands and stompin their feet
Now we're movin to the rhythm of that East Coast Beat
They were feelin' so free
I was feelin' so fine
If your drink runs out come get a sip of mine
Cause my cup runneth over
I done filled it up
And that's how it is when your friends don't font, what.

So I look ahead today
There's no comin back this way
Cause it's all been said and done
You won't ruin any of my fun
No there's no comin back today
I won't even look your way
Cause it's all been said and done
You won't ruin any of my fun
Yeah, Yeah, You won't stand in my way
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Track Name: W.I.L.T.
Let me tell you what it's like to feel Sun-Dried
Whoa, Whoa (x4)

With a positive mind you let your bright light shine
Three minds intertwined but one of a kind
We roll the ganja in spliffs
To dismiss all these feelings that we have of remiss
Cuase it's a family affair
No we don't care, roll it up
Put two in the air
We take it day by day
No we never struggle when we're finding the words to say

Let me tell you what it's like to feel Sun-Dried
Whoa, Whoa (x4)

With the purest of hearts
I know it right from the start
Nothing here is seen as a question mark
To win you over one at a time
I play that sweet music, it makes everything feel so fine
So let's burn one down
I can feel the positive vibration from miles around
Put your hands to the sky
Let go of your worries, get yourself so high

Let me tell you what it's like to feel Sun-Dried
Whoa, Whoa (x4)
Track Name: East Coast Rhythm ft. Leigh Jackson
I got an east coast rhythm
I've got a west coast blues
Been from Atlanta to L.A. in these walkin' shoes
And it's a customary thing to lust the places you love
And I;m lustin' for the west with some blue skies above
You see I've been off the track for a little while
But those California ladies love my Carolina Style, they say
Keep on doin, Just to do what you do
And we'll be sittin' right here until it's only me and you

Blue skies, palm trees
Sandy beaches and the cool breeze
California's the place to be
But only when it's you and me
Blue skies, palm trees
Sandy beaches, you and me

I got an east coast rhythm
I've got a west coast blues
Been from Boston to Seattle just to spread the news
And it's a customary thing to lust the places you love
And I;m lustin' for the west with some blue skies above
You see I've been off the track for a little while
But those California ladies love my Carolina Style, they say
Keep on doin, Just to do what you do
And we'll be sittin' right here until it's only me and you

Blue skies, palm trees
Sandy beaches and the cool breeze
California's the place to be
But only when it's you and me
Blue skies, palm trees
Sandy beaches, you and me
Track Name: Walk Away
I don't wanna talk about it (Talk about it)
I don't even wanna hear you speak
I'm not gonna wave the white flag (Wave the white flag)
Because you can't admit your own defeat
So if you wanna find relief child (Find relief child)
You should try watchin' what you say
Cause I'm not gonna wait around (Wait around, no)
I'm just gonna turn and walk away
Cause there's nothin' really left to say

Now I walk away
Yeah, I
I turn and walk away
Cause there's nothin' really left to say
Now I walk away
Yeah, I
I turn and walk away
Cause there's nothin' really left to say

I can see the bigger picture (Bigger picture)
That doesn't mean I claim to know it all
And if you wanna make this work (Make this work, girl)
You're the only one who makes that call
So if you wanna find relief child (Find relief child)
You should try watchin' what you say
Cause I'm not gonna wait around (Wait around, no)
I'm just gonna turn and walk away
Cause there's nothin' really left to say

Now I walk away
Yeah, I
I turn and walk away
Cause there's nothin' really left to say
Now I walk away
Yeah, I
I turn and walk away
Cause there's nothin' really left to say

We could figure it out,
We could channel the sound
We could turn the whole damn thing around
We could end it all
And walk away

Now I walk away
Yeah, I
I turn and walk away
Cause there's nothin' really left to say
Now I walk away
Yeah, I
I turn and walk away
Cause there's nothin' really left to say
Track Name: Sweatin' This
Well I've got no time to be a worryin' man
I've got to fulfill my master plan
I take it out one city a time
I ease my troubled mind
I pass my time
Recite another melody in rhyme
I feel that reggae, that rhythm, that music
So I can't dispute it
I will not refute it
I'll take the idea, I'm down to amuse it
I just want ya'll to see it like me today

I'm not sweatin this, I'm not sweatin this no more
Sweatin' this I'm not sweatin' this no more
Cause I know there's something better left in store
So I'm not sweatin this, I'm not sweatin this no more

The bill collector, now he knocks on my door
I say, Son, Man I really ain't got no more
I'm gonna have to get ya back next week.
But I'm still on my feet, Pressin' along
I've got this funny feelin' I'm gonna be feelin' strong
And I'm gonna keep my head high in the clouds
My voice rings loud, My chest sticks out proud
I've got this funny feelin' I've found a brand new sound
And I just want ya'll to sing it with me today

I'm not sweatin this, I'm not sweatin this no more
Sweatin' this I'm not sweatin' this no more
Cause I know there's something better left in store
So I'm not sweatin this, I'm not sweatin this no more

So the 9 to 5 has got me feelin' the struggle
Got a feelin' I'm gonna have to flex these muscles
Seems these days its all about your hustle
But I keep movin' on with my eyes on the prize
Turn around to find a brand new surprise
Sunny weather sittin' in my skies

I'm not sweatin this, I'm not sweatin this no more
Sweatin' this I'm not sweatin' this no more
Cause I know there's something better left in store
So I'm not sweatin this, I'm not sweatin this no more
Track Name: Revolution
For forty days, yeah for forty nights
I've been searchin' for somethin right
But as the dark steals the light
I'm consumed by the ever pressing fright of the sight
Of this world spinning out of control
Nothing we can do here but just let go
Of doubts and inhibitions
Modern day superstitions, Ya'll got to be livin
You got to be livin, Got to feel drivin'
You got to be you.

It's just begun
Don't turn and run
The revolution has just begun
Don't turn and run, no
Don't turn and run
The revolution, it has only begun
Don't turn and run
We must fight as one
In this revolution.

For forty days, yeah for forty nights
I'm still searchin' for somethin right
But as the dark steals the light
My mind won't let me turn and fight
What I know I might
Be losing if I don't trust
And if I keep standing in this rain
I'm bound to rust
But with the heart of a lion
I keep moving west, headed straight for Mount Zion
I'm movin along, I'm keepin it strong
I'm movin alone.

It's just begun
Don't turn and run
The revolution has just begun
Don't turn and run, no
Don't turn and run
The revolution, it has only begun
Don't turn and run
We must fight as one
In this revolution.
Track Name: Selfish One
One by one and two by two
Will you do it for us
Or do it for you?
But when you set it aside
Its so easy to see your selfish pride
We could pull it together
Come back to be twice as clever
But you're only reply
Is plainly deny and we all know why

Cause you only think about yourself
(That's why they call you the selfish one)
Cause you only think about yourself
(That's why they call you the selfish one)
You'll wait around for no one else
(That's why they call you the selfish one)
Cause you only think about yourself

I'm comin' back, lets put it in check
I think it's time to resurrect
Your lack of self respect
But it's so easy for me to not know what to expect
So let's take it the same
We can come back and change the game
But it, it won't ever remain
Your arrogance won't refrain so it explains

Cause you only think about yourself
(That's why they call you the selfish one)
Cause you only think about yourself
(That's why they call you the selfish one)
You'll wait around for no one else
(That's why they call you the selfish one)
Cause you only think about yourself
Track Name: Wrecking Ball
It's all in how you look at it, you know
A situation rise and then they go
Patience is a virtue, you must roll slow
Even if the tide is rising from below
Relax, a deep breath
And put your soul at ease for a little bit of rest as we try
To slide the harmony through the stress
Survival of the fittest lasts in this conquest

The irony is ringing, will you answer the call?
Your arms are flailing, frantic like a wrecking ball
Pressure pushing, moving, You must stand tall
Even if your back is against the wall

It's all in how you look at it, you know
Determination drives you to go on with the show
And getting back up leaves you room to grow
Steady like a river beds continual flow
Tired of feeling like I don't belong
I keep the faith and then the feeling won't last too long
I'm trying to change the world through a song
To keep your soul inspired, Hold on just stay strong

The irony is ringing, will you answer the call?
Your arms are flailing, frantic like a wrecking ball
Pressure pushing, moving, You must stand tall
Even if your back is against the wall
