Track Name: Indigo Island
Indigo Island (Lyrics)

There's a place where I go when I'm blue
It's the place where I hide when I'm missing you
When I feel my heart can take no more
I close my eyes and I stand on the shore of

Indigo Island, Indigo Island

It's a place no other soul has been
A secret place that I keep safe within
Where my worries and fears are erased
And the light from the man in the moon shines on my face

Indigo Island, Indigo Island

I'm home alone by the sea
Sifting sand through my toes by the palm trees
Sip a sweet blend of musical wine
Til I'm drunk in the paradise of my mind

Indigo Island, Indigo Island

I drew them a map even though
My island's a place they could never go
But I'm hoping that maybe through song
They will find an Indigo Island of their own
An island of their own

Indigo Island, Indigo Island

Oh yeah,
I wanna go to Indigo Island
Yeah, yeah
I wanna go to Indigo Island
Track Name: The Deep End
The Deep End (Lyrics)

Ever since you came in
feels like my heart just caved in
I’m willing to jump into the deep end
I want you for my lover and my best friend
Dark skin
With a subtle something kind of mystery
Speaking sweet words so softly
I could give you the best of me

I can’t explain it, no
So I won’t even try
I just know something in you
Has really caught my eye

Baby, I don’t think you know what you do to me

Oh baby, don’t pull away
Do you really wanna do me that way
If you got games, I don’t wanna play
But if you got love, I’m hear to stay
Please know, nothing but the best, that’s what you gotta bring
Cause the best is what I’m offering
I thought you said you wanted the real thing

I can’t explain it, no
So I won’t even try
I just know something in you
Has really caught my eye

Baby, I don’t think you know what you do to me

What you, what you do to me
Got me thinking bout you constantly
Even in the morning when I'm in my bed
You're the first thought that pops in my head

Baby, I don’t think you know what you do to me
I don't think you know
Track Name: Everybody Needs Love
Everybody Needs Love (Lyrics)

Baby, if you really want me you should show me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And suga, I'll make you feel blessed to even know me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
If you love me, be there for me
Love the lady
Cause everybody needs love

Gigolos need love too
Even hoes need love too
And I bet you need love too
Don't say you don't cause I know you do

Honey I’m trying to make it just like you
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And don’t you know
A little loving makes that easier to do
I’m there for you
Be there for me
Love the lady
Cause everybody needs love

Gigolos need love too
Even hoes need love too
And I bet you need love too
Don’t say you don’t cause I know you do

I need it, you need it

You know we do

Gigalos need love too
Even hoes need love too
And I bet you need love too
Don’t say you don’t cause I know you do

I need it
You need it
We need it
We need it

We do
Track Name: Something I Can Do (featuring Mane Called Hawk)
Something I Can Do

Living in a land where we're taught showing emotion is weak
And deviation from the norm gets you harsh critique
Your heart grows heavy from the havoc it wreaks
Cause we're afraid to speak even when the pain is at its peak
But what would happen if we chose to express it
Lay on somebody's sofa and just confess it
Let down our guard, admit our hearts are scarred
Instead of walking round trying to act so hard, my God
I think about it sometimes when you come around
Acting like it's all good, even though you feeling down
Baggage heavy, but you're smiling as you pull it
Heartache cutting through you like a slow bullet
I ain't here to judge, won't condemn or condone
Just wanna let you know that you ain't gotta do it alone
I don't know what all you've been through
But I'm here for you
There's gotta be something that I can do

Ain't there something, something, something
that I can do, do for you
Ain't there something, something, something
that I can do, do for you

The mind can only handle so much, treat it well
It could be your private paradise or a crowded prison cell
In this lonely dream, we oscillate between extremes
Living above our emotional means
And the things we use to cope can only numb it
Don't know the tools to use and so instead we run from it
Move on up the mountain just to find there's no summit
So your options are to climb, stand still, or plummet
But I'm done running from the hurt
Yeah I'm gone overcome it
I've got faith in my freedom
Wise words, I heed them
My good friends, I need them
Young minds, I feed them
what my own soul is hungering for
May God speed them
Self-love is my only daily grind
Gotta practice peace of mind to thrive in this lifetime
Trade the lies I've internalized for the truth
Ask the woman in the mirror ain't there something that I can do
Ain't there something

Ain't there something, something, something
that I can do, do for you
Ain't there something, something, something
that I can do, do for you

[Original poem by Mane Called Hawk]

If I should die tonight
I pray my soul will take
Take flight, fly
Track Name: I Knew
I Knew (Lyrics)

In the back of my mind, I guess I knew
Soon you'd need your solitude
Though I crave your love like I crave food
I guess you just ain't in the mood
You fly away to be free
There's nothing else that you'd rather be
Nothing left for your eyes to see
And no one to save you, not even me

I see your face, I hear your laughter
I love you much but I guess I knew
Something was missing
I scratch your back
I hug your waist
I try to lie but I guess I knew
Something was missing

And now I'm missing you
Now I'm missing you
Now I'm missing you
Now I'm missing you

Tears of liquor falling from your cloudy eyes
Death comes and shatters these family ties
Used to be the sunshine of my life
Husband and wife

I see your face, I hear your laughter
I love you much but I guess I knew
Something was missing
And now I'm missing you

Til death do us part
Til death do us part
Til death do us part
Til death do us part
Track Name: Sleep the Night Away
Sleep the Night Away (Lyrics)

It's been one of those days
I don't wanna go anywhere
I don't wanna do anything
All I wanna do is sleep

Let's say I'm done for the day
No reason to stay awake
So I'm gonna sleep the night away
I'm gonna sleep the night away
Let's say I'm done for the day
No reason to stay awake
So I'm gonna sleep the night away

I know it's only eight o'clock at night
There's still a little bit of daylight
But I'm tired of carrying this weight around
Tired of memories tying me down
Ready to escape reality
Flee my body and be free
Fly to the highest mountain peak
And allow my soul to speak

Let's say I'm done for the day
No reason to stay awake
So I'm gonna sleep the night away
I'm gonna sleep the night away
Let's say I'm done for the day
No reason to stay awake
So I'm gonna sleep the night away

Close my eyes and crave no more
Watch my mental metaphors
Visions dancing through my head
Keep me company in bed
I'll wake up and try again
Try to find my smile again
Cry my tears and sing my songs
Yes, the show must go on

Let's say I'm done for the day
No reason to stay awake
So I'm gonna sleep the night away
I'm gonna sleep the night away
Let's say I'm done for the day
No reason to stay awake
So I'm gonna sleep the night away

Each day I bend but never break
Amazed by every breath I take
So I will sleep the night away
But tomorrow's another day

It's another day, it's another day

It's another day
Another chance at life
Life!
Track Name: Robot Life
Robot Life (Lyrics)

People rushing down the street
avoiding eyes and flipping hair
No words for the ones they meet
No time to love, no time to care
Obsessed with a machine
Always focused on a screen
It's the robot life

Make money for money's sake
We're always working, on the grind
Purchasing to pacify our jaded hearts
and crowded minds
Strung out like a guitar
We've forgotten who we are
It's the robot life

Locked inside a fancy cage
The insanity of the age
The robot life, the robot life
The robot life,
life, life, life, life

Reprogrammed to hate and fear
We're too afraid to take a chance
Soaking wet in our regrets
We blame it all on circumstance
Trapped in our comfort zone
Feeling lost and all alone
It's the robot life

Deprogram in 3, 2, 1

I just need to touch someone
and feel earth crumble in my hand
Feel the music, face the fear,
escape to a wondaland
Have a day to freestyle
Watch the world spin for a while
No more robot life

I'm ready to exhale
I'm ready to break the spell
Live from my own heart
Make my life a work of art
Let's awaken from this trance
Baby we were made to dance, yeah!

[Dance Break]

I have a dream of ascending
to love never-ending
Above the rush of robots
obsessed with pretending
to be something they're not
To have more than you've got
I have to leave that life alone
That fire's much too hot
I crave the cool of the shade
More than this charade
Want you to feel my heart and soul
each time the record's played
Cause the stakes are getting higher
The consequences are dire
Why live your life in chains
When you could live to love and inspire
Track Name: Hallelujah
Hallelujah (lyrics)

What seems right could be wrong
It's short but, it seems long
You rise then you fall just to get up and move on
You win some, you lose some
Eternal conundrum
Best know who you are
better know where you come from
Exciting, inviting, prosaic, witholding
Intuitively play these cards you are holding
It's joy and confusion
Kisses and contusions
And shadows, and magic, and love
(Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme,)

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu
That's life
Come on sing it, yeah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu
That's life

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Go higher, higher, higher
Track Name: That Groove
That Groove (Lyrics)

As I think on this life we're living
And all the times that we wanted to give in
All the moments we couldn't explain
The losses, the gains, the passion, the pain
Get's harder to carry the load
Feels like we're about to implode
Turn your head to the sky and shout
What's it about?

It's about that groove, groove
Oh, when there's no where left to run
We get down to chords and drums
See there's a rhythm to it all y'all
So keep your head up
and stand tall y'all
Cause it's about that love, love
Oh, when there's no where left to run
We get down to chords and drums
Dancing free out in the sun
We join hands and groove as one
We join hands and groove as one

I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm
Coming, coming, coming out of my shell
Time is steadily ticking away
don't get caught by the bell
Ain't no refund on the way
We were sold a fairy tale
of American dreams, hollywood, heaven and hell
I ain't come to save the world
I just wanna tip the scales
If you won't participate
then at least wish me well
Stress accumulates, reframe the story that I tell
Deep breaths, meditate, no more waiting to exhale
Break the spell

Cause it's about more than getting yours
and being on your grind
It's about the legacy that we leave behind
And doing the best you can while you are here
So til the day that you disappear

Stay in that groove, groove
Oh, when there's no where left to run
We get down to chords and drums
See there's a rhythm to it all y'all
So keep your head up
and stand tall y'all
Cause it's about that love, love
Oh, when there's no where left to run
We get down to chords and drums
Dancing free out in the sun
We join hands and groove as one
Groove as one, groove as one
groove as one, as one, when we rise

When we rise, when we fall
When we try to make sense of it all
We've been trying to figure it out
What's it all about
What's it all about
What's it all about
Tell me what's it about

That groove
Track Name: We've Been Waiting (featuring Major)
We've Been Waiting (Lyrics)

It keeps replaying in my head
Those fateful words that my daddy said
He said fly high child, sing your song
We're bout to get up cause we've been down too long

We've been running (we've been waiting)
and racing (we've been waiting)
Paying our dues (we've been waiting)
and dream chasing (we've been waiting)
So we ain't gotta worry (we've been waiting)
cause when it's time (we've been waiting)
Our stars will align (we've been waiting)
and we're gonna shine

We've been running (we've been waiting)
and racing (we've been waiting)
Paying our dues (we've been waiting)
and dream chasing (we've been waiting)
So we ain't gotta worry (we've been waiting)
cause when it's time (we've been waiting)
Our stars will align (we've been waiting)
and we're gonna shine

[Major]
Yeah, just call it perfect timing
Think back, yeah mind rewinding
Following the rainbow to the gold
In the pot, nothing I'm finding
Felt like my hope declining
Fuck that bruh, keep on climbing
No sense you crying and whining,
convert that hurt to work
Keep on grinding
Can you dig it, like coal mining
I'm a living, breathing diamond
Express my innermost thoughts
and it just so happens that it start rhyming
My light so bright, it's blinding
Remember what I said like Simon
I don't need co-signing
Cause I be sholl shining

We've been running (we've been waiting)
and racing (we've been waiting)
Paying our dues (we've been waiting)
and dream chasing (we've been waiting)
So we ain't gotta worry (we've been waiting)
cause when it's time (we've been waiting)
Our stars will align (we've been waiting)
and we're gonna shine

We've been running (we've been waiting)
and racing (we've been waiting)
Paying our dues (we've been waiting)
and dream chasing (we've been waiting)
So we ain't gotta worry (we've been waiting)
cause when it's time (we've been waiting)
Our stars will align (we've been waiting)
and we're gonna shine

We've been waiting a mighty long time ain't we
We've been waiting a mighty long time ain't we
We've been waiting so long
We've been waiting a mighty long time ain't we
We've been waiting a mighty long time ain't we
We've been waiting so long

Waiting so long, waiting so long
Waiting so long
So long, waiting so long
Waiting so long
Waiting so long

Ain't we, ain't we
Yeah
