FOLDED FLOWER Lyrics: Melissa Bolling A folded flower Can't share it's color And so it shuns The power of the sun A bent and broken Beam of light once open Can't undue Unwillingness to see the truth I can't bring you to the water unless you see the need I can't change the reasons why your mind has set you free Every season has it's time And golden leaves stay just a while Every season has it's time Just don't let it pass you by Do you see it here? Cause you might take for granted Waiting for applause While all your hopes and dreams are supplanted I feel the loss of the indecisive ones The slow defrost of the unrecovered ones I feel it all I feel it all Some say faith means wager all you own Sacrifice your heart, encase it in a stone I feel it all But they're all wrong Chase down every doubt that has you chained in fear Uncover the star you've always been my dear Just don't let it pass you by Just don't let it pass you by Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Hey Neigbor 05:59
Hey Neighbor Seems like every day another tragedy A greater loss of life and higher rate of frequency A mind, poisoned by lies and hate using bullets to communicate Tell me why you want to take somebody’s life away Tell me what you think those bullets are going to say Who hurt you so bad that this is what you want to do Come on and talk to me, I really want to talk to you Hey Neighbor do me a favor Open up your heart and let me in If you wonder how they got this way look at the “games” these children play Oh what fun, kill as many as you can Don’t take much to turn a fantasy into a plan Juiced up on steroid beef, stripped of spiritual belief Grief breeds violence, and violence breeds more grief Plenty of drugs but no emotional healing Can’t you feel the pressure rising to the ceiling? Hey Neighbor Do me a favor Open up your heart and let me in We are sisters and brothers We shouldn’t fear one another It’s time to make a better world So lets begin See people murdered by the dozens Before they see love being made The N.R.A. says “It’s OK” and the movie studios get paid This is not a game We are all to blame What, in heavens name? It’s a crying shame

Say Goodbye 07:25
Say Goodbye (Lyrics: Aaron Bellamy) What you’ve been carrying around is a heavy weight You’d better learn to put it down before it’s too late Back is getting weary, bags are bursting at the seams The demon in the darkness is haunting all your dreams My brother, my brother your heart beats fierce on the drum Running and running around all the time tell me what you’re running from Hear that child who cries out in the night Needing comfort peace and light That child is you, no pacifier will do Learn to love yourself and let somebody love you The reason why I built this wall is not to keep you out but keep me inside The reason why I never call is because I can’t stand to say goodbye The reason I aint scared to fall is because I never get too high Before you walk you’ve got to crawl someday you’re going to fly My father, my father, I’m not angry anymore Your wrongs and shortcomings, I have forgiven you for What I’ve put myself through, this disappointment in you Waiting for you to become someone new No more fairytales that ship has sailed If I can’t love you, then it’s I who have failed

Threatening Black Male (Tony Aaron) Lyrics: Aaron Bellamy & Toussaint Liberator Elementary school teacher Supposed to teach the children wrong from right Teach the youth to hunger for knowledge and that love is neither black nor white He teaches hate because he hates you He teaches fear because he fears you too He teaches envy because he’s envious of the gifts that god has given you He wants to see you kneel Pledge allegiance to the flag Send you to the principal’s office hope you never come back You’re just a threatening black male Even though you’re only 10 years old You’re just a threatening black male Threatening his sense of control Policeman, sworn to serve and protect Make sure everyone gets their proper respect But the only thing that makes him feel like a man Is that big black stick in his hand He wants to break the will of a child Like an animal, wicked and wild He wants to see you kneel wants to see you kiss his feet Another stripe on his uniform another black boy lyin’ dead in the street You’re just a threatening black male almost 16 years old You’re just a threatening black male Threatening his sense of control You feel so threatened by a black male child he wants to put you in a hole He’ll try to crush your dreams and take your life but he can never have your soul Here comes that judge again She’s meant to weigh the scales Black man in her courtroom, he’s guilty never fails She don’t see a man, she sees her bottom line She’s got private prison shares and he’s gonna do some time She wants to see you kneel Wants to see you kiss her feet She’s gonna turn a profit They don’t care if she cheats You’re just a threatening black male Just turning 18 years old You’re just a threatening black male Threatening her sense of control She feels so threatened by a black male child she wants to put you in a hole He’ll try to crush your dreams and take your life but she can never have your soul Threatening Black Male (Tony Aaron) Lyrics: Aaron Bellamy & Toussaint Liberator Elementary school teacher Supposed to teach the children wrong from right Teach the youth to hunger for knowledge and that love is neither black nor white He teaches hate because he hates you He teaches fear because he fears you too He teaches envy because he’s envious of the gifts that god has given you He wants to see you kneel Pledge allegiance to the flag Send you to the principal’s office hope you never come back You’re just a threatening black male Even though you’re only 10 years old You’re just a threatening black male Threatening his sense of control Policeman, sworn to serve and protect Make sure everyone gets their proper respect But the only thing that makes him feel like a man Is that big black stick in his hand He wants to break the will of a child Like an animal, wicked and wild He wants to see you kneel wants to see you kiss his feet Another stripe on his uniform another black boy lyin’ dead in the street You’re just a threatening black male almost 16 years old You’re just a threatening black male Threatening his sense of control You feel so threatened by a black male child he wants to put you in a hole He’ll try to crush your dreams and take your life but he can never have your soul Here comes that judge again She’s meant to weigh the scales Black man in her courtroom, he’s guilty never fails She don’t see a man, she sees her bottom line She’s got private prison shares and he’s gonna do some time She wants to see you kneel Wants to see you kiss her feet She’s gonna turn a profit They don’t care if she cheats You’re just a threatening black male Just turning 18 years old You’re just a threatening black male Threatening her sense of control She feels so threatened by a black male child she wants to put you in a hole He’ll try to crush your dreams and take your life but she can never have your soul

Patch 04:55
Patch Lyrics: Sinclair Jennings Jr. Simple stories fade away People worry ‘bout an end and darkest days Traipsing through this field of fear Glazing over inside, purified the thing, he lied He can’t hear above the sound Pour it all over the lonely Quenched with bitter-sweet boy frown Hold fast from front to back Alone and far from home but no one knows just how it grows Were you startled to find that your heart and your mind had been twisted They believed that the gift they’d been chose to receive had been claimed You probably thought they’d never call you out on that there Paying the cost, your family got lost but you aint looking so hard, is you? Easy openings like these Somehow he missed the mark No yellow flag, a quick restart Close your eyes and walk that line Hanging on bypass, you’re bound to fall, I’ve heard it all Dim the lights it’s time for bed Feel it turned away from the worries in my head Hold fast from front to back Alone and far from home but no one knows just how it goes
