Lyrics

I need to write it down

It helps to get it out

When I'm frustrated by

all this false representation

The world's in trouble

our children's futures in doubt

People been shouting loud

It seems nothing's changing

Innocence lost in the chaos

with nowhere to run or turn

citizens armed or helplessly watching

the ancient city and their villages burn.

He explains but I can't understand It's been experienced firsthand. Though it's the latest in world news Until I've stood in their shoes,

I will never know their blues I pray and hope I never do

you can never say you understand

Until you over-stand, not unless you've been there before

you can't really understand, untill you over-stand

it's just you're your opinion nothing more

With unbridled courage

facing death and disaster

Another day on the job

beaten, worn and battered.

Canned dinner for one

before he goes to bed

He'll awake again before the sun

feeling emotionally dead

They fight against overwhelming odds Proudly falling in line doing as thier toldto chose between a place with the gods or the holy general's firing squads

Chorus

So you can't really understand

Though it's been been told firsthand.

Yes it's he latest in world news

Until you've stood in their shoes

You'll never know their blues

You will never over-stand

You can't understand

until you over-stand.

until you've been there before

He explain's so you can understand It's been experienced firsthand. Though it's the latest in world news But till you've stood in their shoes You can't know their kind of blues So how can you truly understand? Unless you over-stand.

​​

(\Ad lib) Do you over-stand? working late for less payto keep your job Do you over-stand? degrading yourself feeding and keeping baby safe Do you over-stand? lying to keep the others out of jail or dead Do you over-stand ? making a sale to just survive another day Do you Over-stand?bossman ain't got no work Do you over-stand? running for cover while walking to school. Make sure you over-stand. Before you talk bout what he or she should do

You need to over-stand to truly understand.

This is a funky social commentary track

Lyrics

Some People say that we're angry
While they're playing with our lives
Preaching lies so righteous
Hard times just seem to pass them by
Can't you hear Justice is crying                                                                                                                                                                   Freedom's been jailed and the eagle's dying (dead)                                                                                                                                               While the rest of the world is in crisis                                                                                                                                                                   They be living their dream... by fucking us over

They don't have to live their dream by fucking anyone over
You don't need to live your dream by fucking anyone over
Not by fucking anyone over

This game is ruthless, It's stone cold 
institutional judges making the call
Billions paid to those that made millions
creating the need for a cure`
Everyday people deceived and disheartened.
Lying and provoking revolutions to save our souls 
Raising revenue on the internet all over the world

So they can live their dream... by fucking us over                                                                                                                                                 I'm living my dream without fucking anyone over                                                                                                                                                   That's what I'm doing people

I wish you'd do the same

Live Skeletons locked in closets
Houses, cars, partners for life, kids in college
A good eye blind for the right deposit
Distorting truth into common knowledge
Diamonds and gold from blood flesh and bone
Why do they do what they do?

Why do they live their dream by fucking us over.

Why must they live their dream by fucking us over? Can you tell me?

Big corporations writing laws for a nation
cancer caused from their experimentations 
Religious wars for freedom sees refugees fleeing 
incarcerated liberation is all that they're bringing.
ooh ya'll best be listening, why can't you see?

They're living their dream, by fucking us over.                                                                                                                                                 They're living their dream by fucking us over                                                                                                                                                         You can't fuck us over

They're living tier dream by fucking us over.

Lyrics

Can't sit still always on the move
Searching all genres for the ultimate groove
As long as i keep my head stay irie
i won't quit as long as I keep trying "relax, think"
Living my life all around the muse
In the Caribbean singing irie blues
feeling so good i know i can't lose
kicking happy's ass hanging with you

Ya, Ya, Ya, Ya, Ya, everything or nothing at all
Ya ya ya ya ya, don't be afraid to fall
Ooh yeah "hold stop relax think"
yeah.. "the rhythm is just Jimi Hendrix, Carl Gustave"

I really like the way she moves
Twerking to every sub beat of the groove
she's a real pretty kitten purring like a cat
and i'm a get to playing cat in the hat well,
i really wanna get me some of that.

"Ya ya ya ya ya", I say ya ya ya ya ya "hold stop relax"
Giving everything or nothing at all (repeats out)

This is an early instrumental demo version of "Overstand" before adding live drums without vocals. Rough, but a chill backing track to relax to or vibe on.

A tune to promote brotherly and sisterly love.

Lyrics

The best means for the world to overcome the worlds difficulties,                                           is that the world be united in a single body. 

The world can be  better place if we don't look at color creed or race                                     So remember it don't matter where your coming from                                                         We all need to share the same space.

Living in a world of trouble where the kryptonite is genocide people die where's the reason why? We gotta look at the approach to make it work. Spread a little love and live it up hug your brothers, hug your sisters, unite to stop the fight . Right.

Some are fighting for peace and security like love is the enemy                               Backstabbing, bickering and fighting won't build your community.                                         The young children of the world need stability oh yes                                                           So now's the time the time is now people it's all about unity

Living in a world of trouble where the kryptonite is genocide people die where's the reason why? We gotta look at the approach to make it work. Spread a little love and live it up hug your brothers, hug your sisters, unite to stop the fight . Right.

Every body needs Love. Love love                                                                                     Love is what we need

L-O-V-E for you and me
