Track Name: Paradise
Come with me to Paradise
Come with me to Paradise
Paradise
Paradise

When you're feeling down, call on me
Everytime I come around, I'll set you free (Come w/ me baby)

Come with me to Paradise
Come with me to Paradise

She no matter, no matter, no matter where my heart roams baby, aww yeah
I swear that my heart, my heart, my heart has its home in

Paradise
Paradise
Paradise
Paradise
Paradise
Track Name: Eagle Eye
I can smell your nature, in the air
The sweet liberation, that you wear
And I just gotta say: namaste, namaste
Pretty lady I'll be headed your way
Cause I dare to imagine
The law of attraction
in play

Chorus:
While we're riding on the wings of love
Riding on the wings of love
Flying high & lovin the rush
Riding in the wings of love

I want to look into the windows of your soul
And take a dive inside your rivers of gold (and I'm told)
Seek search & honey you shall find
But when you take it baby, take your time
If you wanna imagine
The law of attraction
in flight

[Chorus]

You & I, flyin high
day & night,
on the wings of love
Eagle eye,
let's take a ride
to paradise,
on the wings of love

[Chorus 2x]
Track Name: Liftoff
Stepped up in the spot, so hot was the one I saw
Good lord she was rockin, and just dropping was every jaw
I had to get close, cause she was workin like a 9-5
She took me right by her hand and said: "baby are you ready to fly?"

Chorus:
Cause I'm ready to lift off
Until the sky comes falling down
I'm ready to lift off
Until the sun comes back around
I'm ready to lift off
Into the wind without a bound
Baby, let's lift off
Away from here to higher ground

Because nothin here can hold our spirits down

Sometimes it don't matter, what you're goin through
As long as you know, just where you're going to
I wanna fly high, so I'm willing to sacrifice
Everything I used to be just to make it into paradise

[Chorus]

Alright
She hit me hard like
She hit me hard like uhhh uhhh
Whew!
Gotta gotta lay it down baby, alright
I said I think I'm ready to

[Chorus 2x]

Because nothin here can hold our spirits down
Track Name: You Think This Is A Game?
Wait, so lemme get this straight: you think this is a game? What a shame

Many miles we came, to light the world with this flame
And you, you think this is a game?
Muddy water down my kitchen drain, and it only quenches my pain
And you, you think this is a game?
See we strive to be the change, that we need to see the change
And you, you think this is a game?
And lastly, to protect and serve us the clam, while many lives are slain
And you, oooo you think this is a game?

We play on playa, or play on playette
Clearly what you see, isn't what you get
Well if to you this is a game, lemme say
Before you weigh in: consider yours truly the coldest one playin
Track Name: Free & Brave
Trayvon Martin, Luther King
Shot down in this American Dream
And now it's hard to support, that the chocolate voice
Has equal choice to let freedom ring
But we the people in the USA still believe

The Amazon unemployment line
Livin hand to mouth chasin dimes
They tell me save every penny, cause it sure ain't plenty to go around

Pre-Chorus:
But I believe that we are free
To manifest our destiny
We search so long for answers,
Only to find more mysteries

Chorus:
In the land of the free
and the home of the brave
In the land of the free
and the home of the brave

OMG, how long before we realize?
GMOs aint the only food modified
I went to school, to feast my eyes
Upon a story that told many lies
But deep inside

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus 2x]

In the land of the free, and the home of the brave (4x)
My my my, my my my (4x)
Manifest my destiny (4x)

From California, to New Orleans
To New York, Chicago, down in Texas is free, I tell ya
I ain't afraid, you know I'm proud
To get down, down, down down down

[Chorus 3x]

Are you free enough to be brave or are you brave enough to be free? (4x)
Track Name: Hard Times
Who's hungry for the power, the power to overcome?
I'm far from a coward, but I've thought about givin up
Cause I'm not quite sure, how long this fight is for
But I know one thing, I can't do it alone
so my hands are reaching out for yours my brother

Pre-Chorus:
Ain't nothin wrong with walkin alone, but it's time we come together
Cause right now yeah, ohh right now
Right now is all we've got
and tick tick goes the clock in these

Chorus:
Hard Times
Hard Times
Hard Times
Hard Times

To divide & conquer, is a deadly way of livin
If we unite we'll prosper, & we can all get a lil healin
Everybody's searchin for a proper way to progress, all ya gotta do
Is just love your neighbor just as you love yourself & we can

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

I've been shot down, face left in the dirt
Seeking a higher ground, outside my childhood church
You can't hate the black, and no you can't hate the white
Because if you get bit, you can only hate the bite
Lemme tell you now

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus 2x]

Sloooow, Sloooooww down
Slooooooooooowww down
Track Name: My Love
Danger,
you say you feel when I'm with you and your a-
fraid to,
Love me before you really know
Where lies my loyalty? Who's comin first?
Will I let go and leave, when the pressure bursts
Ooo I can tell

Chorus:
When push comes to shove, you're afraid of my love

Afraid of my love
Afraid of my love
Afraid of my love

Never,
my time will ever be enough, for the
Tender,
Sweet tender touch we need to grow
These are the voices I, I know that you fight
What will we sacrifice, when passions collide?
I know deep inside

[Chorus]

Baby I know your reasons, I've been there before
Shot down w/ broken pieces, of my heart on the floor, oh darlin
But all I remember, is your tender touch
For me will you surrender to the power of love?

Because, when push comes to shove
I know why you're afraid, yea
When push comes to shove
I was once afraid of love

But for you I'll tear my guard down
For your love I'll lay it all down
I swear, I swear I'll give it all
See I got you, you got me
Baby there's no need to be
Afraid of my love
Track Name: Money
Butterfly, I can't deny
You've been floating all through my mind
With a lil time, you & I
Can set the world on fi-yiy-ire

Pre-Chorus:
But you tell me that your time is money
So I gotta make it do what it do
But when you got the power, why work for the dollar
When the dollar can work for you?

Chorus:
Money ain't gotta thang on me
Ain't gotta thang on me oh no no no! (3x)

Brother man, I know that I can
Make a hundred grand workin for the other man
But I understand, when it's time to switch
Cause makin money don't make you rich
When you're stretched out, all stressed out
Knowin somethin ain't right, and you're left out
Can't let that 9-5, put a seatbelt on my mind

When the tell you that your time is money
So you gotta make it do what it do
But when you got the power, why work for the dollar
Whe the dollar can work for you?

[Chorus]

For the dolla, put your heart on a collar, say: no no no!
No no no!
For the green, givin up on your dream, say: no no no!
No no no!
You're getting paid, but your souls a slave, say: no no nooo!
No no nooooo!
Baby I got too much drive, to put a seatbelt on my mind

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]
Track Name: No Limits
For you, for you all my walls are fallin fallin down
On fire I feel with your love around
Only, only time will tell where we will rise & fall
But I'll tell you I'll ride with you through it all

Chorus:
See I believe, that we can't be stopped
Cause all I see when I look in your eyes is
No limits, to my love
No limits, to my love

Tell me, tell me all the things you only tell the mirror
Sweet lipstick letters from your heart
Visions, visions of our love are getting mighty clearer
Though we're spirits dancing in the dark

[Chorus 2x]
Track Name: Honey
We'll be love
We'll be more than we ever dreamed of
All because
We believe one plus one equals one
How powerful

Pre-Chorus:
You can be such a busy bee, but save a little honey for me
I can be such a busy bee, but I'll save my honey for thee
We can both be the busy bee and save a lil honey while we

Chorus:
Take it slow, be-
fore we go you got to know that
I believe our love will grow if
we slow down baby, slow down darlin
Slow down for our love

Can't deny,
I could never cut the ties
You & I
We've been doin this for many many lives
So while we fly, remember

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus 2x]

Outro (4x):
Livin for an eternal love
I'm livin for an eternal love

We'll be love
Track Name: Paradise Outro
Oooooo
Come with me to Paradise
Come with me to Paradise

Lastnight I had a dream,
I was seen by The Supreme
tellin me to

Come with me to Paradise
Come with me to Paradise

Said its hard times outside
But it won't be the same for your mind
If you just

Come with me to Paradise
Come with me to Paradise

Saying my child spread the word
And do it for the cries unheard
So they can

Come with me to Paradise
Come with me to Paradise

And if you're waiting for heaven
You can shine a little heaven on earth
So you can

Come with me to Paradise
Come with me to Paradise

Paradise
Paradise
Track Name: Can't Get Enough
Love, love I still
Feel your fire in my heart
Though the road, between our lips
Lies a thousand miles apart

So I'll save all my lovin for you
Because the frame of another won't do
Baby you're the ru-ler of my heart
Oh I tell you that it's
All be-cause

Chorus:
I can't get enough
I can't get enough get enough of your love
I can't get enough
I can't get enough get enough of your love

Of your love

Your love, your love
Your love, looooove

Our love, it hits so hard
When we're fighting in the dark
But on your table, I'll lay my cards
Cause you're the Queen of my heart

So to the sky I'll hold my head up high
Cause I believe you and I if we try
We can make it, through the times
Oh I tell you that it's
All be-cause

[Chorus]

Of your love

With my heart, and soul, and my mind
I'll sacrifice to love you every night & day
I just needed, a little time, just a little time to love myself in a healthy way (ooohhhh love)
With you I've never felt so strong
You're the only one that I want
I swear I'm ready for Paradise
Now that I
Now that I

Outro (6x):
Now that I love myself
Like I've never loved before
Now that I love myself
I can love you so much more
