Track Name: Keep Swimming
Wrapping you up in fear
Bounding you by their hand
The hand feels all too near
But now you understand

Marching orders trying to put us in line
Take away what is yours and what is mine
Glide against the tide? Don’ know I got time
Waves get bigger on this up hill climb


More and more of power and war
Corrupt government politicians hell-bent
Fighting, lying, cheating, dying
Anger, hating multiplying
Keep on swimming against the shoal
Don't drown your soul

Swim against the tide
‘Til the waters’ dried
let love be your guide
‘Cos you can run but you cannot hide


Baby, just don’t lose the round
Maybe keep your feet on the ground
Crazy? You ain’t nothing but a Soul swimming against all you've been put upon
Track Name: Pushing Through
With all this chaos and confusion
Is this some strange illusion?
Through all of the burning ashes begs the question
Just how long can you stand this recession?


Tearing up from inside out
You leave us all with fists of doubt
Get up! Stand up! Make your sound
Make it heard to all around
(Repeat)


Tabloids, tablet, television tales
The hurt of the thoughtful minds never fails
we won’t follow the shoal, become the sheep
And we’ll draw the curtains from the ones who sleep


Tearing up from inside out
You leave us all with fists of doubt
Get up! Stand up! Make your sound
Make it heard to all around
(Repeat)

Push through the walls
Believe in the love, for how it calls
From rough are diamonds of light
With the weight of the world, it’ll be all right


Politics as always
They didn’t have my vote
You rubbish the ones
who try to keep us afloat
Fabricated headlines to keep you low
Under the watchful eyes of the beady crows
We won’t pay the price of rotten judgment
Because with the times like these,
Who can trust the government?

Tearing up from inside out
You leave us all with fists of doubt
Get up! Stand up! Make your sound
Make it heard to all around
(Repeat)
Track Name: 9th Groove
Hey! You! You looking me? Well -
I’m looking at you, come on.
Have you heard the news that there’s a riot comin’ on.
Put your hands up! Fix up! It won’t be long


Cos it ain’t what ya say, it’s the way you that you say it
Huh! You not standing for this shit, Just another
Mother being taken down from the man that wears the crown
I ain’t buying, more lying, don’t shoot me for trying


To bring the peace to motherland, understand?
We don’t stand united,
And the flames ignited
Kingdom, divided

How loud do we have to holla
Inside we all bleed the same colour


Come a little closer and dance with me
Feel the heat from the furnace in this ecstasy
I got nothing to explain but baby, can’t you see?
We can go with flow of this fantasy
This shimmering star lighting up the way
We can do this all night and day
Love the one I’m with, all I got, I’ll give
This deal’s for real, I feel
I’m gunna give you all my lovin’, no pushing no shoving
Cos I cant hide
Track Name: Wake Up
When puzzle pieces join in place
Wake me from this race
Express yourself and realise
We can revolutionise
Turning left when it don’t seem right
Don’t give up the fight!


(Don’t Sleep) been under far too long and
(Wake up) Waking up from all that’s wrong
(Don’t sleep) Wolf was at my door then
(Wake up) No longer scared again


Freedom from the hype you’re fed
Freedom from the Shit that spread

Opened eyes you see the light
Passion, hope burning bright


(Don’t sleep) You’ve pulled the wool from your eyes
(Wake Up) No longer hypnotised
(Don’t sleep) The future is a different view
(Wake Up) Together we can start a new
(Don’t sleep) Waves get high come crashing hard
(Wake Up) They try to leave you scarred
(Don’t sleep) They try to rearrange
(Wake Up) Get back up and make that change
(Don’t sleep) Push on and don’t hold back
(Wake Up) Sing your song, get back on track
(Don’t sleep) No longer live in fear
(Wake Up) Make hatred disappear
(Don’t sleep) No longer live in fear
(Wake Up) Make hatred disappear
(Don’t sleep) No longer live in fear
(Wake Up) Make hatred disappear

Puzzle pieces joined in place
Woken up from this rat race
