Track Name: Away (Not as Far)
Looks like I'm at it again
And I can't remember how this started
It's been three years since I've seen your face
Not something I could easily erase
It's raining again this morning
My mind shares in the feeling
Probably won't do much with today
My soul's asleep anyway

Can't say that I'm surprised
I'll do this every time
Give me just enough rope and I will drive you away

I know this may reach you too late
And I know you owe nothing to me
I would take back so many things if I could
Put you right next to me
But at the risk of making the same mistake again
I think I'm gonna go back to sleep instead
And let you drive away

Got to get out from this weight I am under
Cancel the plans that I have for the summer
Drive all night stand outside your place
Maybe one more time I could see your face

Can't say I didn't try
Gonna change it up this time
Give you just enough rope
Let you drive me away
Track Name: Gone (Not as Far)
Won't be long before the sky gives way
And the world comes alive again
I been awake all night,
Praying I don't mess this up and then
I brush if off,
Cant think too much
I'm outta here by noon today.
So I get my stuff,
I don't bring too much,
I wont need it anyway.

Here goes nothing,
I'll leave my keys by the door.
I'm settled on something,
Worth leaving for.
Just my reflection,
On an empty floor.
And then once more, I'm gone.

You called me but a few months later
Said 'man its not like it used to be"
People are comin' up to you
Askin' what did ever come of me
Well my friend,
This is not the end.
And I'm sorry that you feel that way.
Some time from now,
We will meet again.
But you knew I wouldn't stay.

(CHORUS)

Wont be long before the sky gives way
And the world comes alive again.
Cant remember feeling this at home,
At home since God's knows when.
Well my friend,
Its like I said,
I'm sorry that you feel that way.
Some time from now,
We'll meet again.
But this is where I'm gonna stay.
Track Name: Don't Just Be (Ideas)
Just 'cuz you got no direction
Don't mean you can't find home
Even when you're lost and stranded all alone
You gotta step it up
And rise above
You know you'll make it, just because
Put the past behind you
You will see there's so much ahead

If you just stop now realize
don't just be
You got these choices
If you'd only see
They say there ain't no lunch out there
That can be had for free
Don't listen to them
'Cuz you know they're wrong
Take it from me

When you're lost on the highway
The load too much to bear
You got no navigation
Winds blow conflict in the air
Search deep inside of you
And find some inner truth
Let your body guide you
And your spirit keep you loose.

Stop now realize
Don't just be
You got these choices
If you'd only see
They say there ain't no lunch out there
That can be had for free
Don't listen to them
'Cuz you know they're wrong
Take it from me.
Track Name: Help (Not as Far)
Help, I need someone to pull me down
Help, I'm hanging from a chance
Help, but no please dont help
This time I wanna drop myself
I'll crash, I'll burn out
If I have to.

Cuz' when the sun is setting on
Everything you counted on
What do you do now?
Reality creepin' through
Rising up inside of you
Realize that you can help yourself.

Help, I need someone to pull me through
Help, I'm stuck between the old and nothing new
Help, no please dont help
I'm doing fine by myself
I will crash and burn out
If I have to

Cuz when the sun is setting on
Everything you counted on
What do you do now?
Reality creepin' through
Rising up inside of you
Realize that you can help yourself
Track Name: Jah Light (Ideas)
Sun a'rise above I
Everyday
Let the moon come
Above the hillside
With Jah gift his love for mankind
Everyday
Make the right decision
Come on now people
Let's unite and all
Never have no hatred-listen
Babylon may fall to the ground

Let Jah light come,
Come and protect I
Everyday
Jet Jah light come
Come and Protect I

Little sister come Jah protect her
Everyday
And if she run away, don't let her
Runaway...everyday
We're all one
We got to come together
Everyday
Back to his roots from here
To kingdom come
Track Name: My Train (Ideas)
Eight hundred wheels
One hundred cars
Did what I done
But now long gone
Hoppin' a freight
Makin' my great escape
Across the river
I'll make it in one hour straight

See me out there
I know they're comin'
I'm the one for who
They're gunnin'
They got my number
I got their money
But no saving grace
Thats my train

Edward Mongon is the name
As ringleader I took the blame
Ten thousand to one
I would prevail
Then they got me
A million bucks my bail

See me out there
I know they're comin'
I'm the one for whom
They're gunnin'
They got my number
I got their money
But no saving grace

If I could, I'd turn back time
Cuz all I see
Is trouble on down the line
But time ain't static
It pushes on like the day
And I'm left here runnin' from the law
On my train

Don't get close
I'm no good honey
Sounds cliche
But you don't know me
The price I'd pay to not be guilty
Like an outlaw, always running
Got no plans, just going and coming
Track Name: Easier Way (Not as Far)
A declaration
A once unified nation
Why's it always gotta be us against them?

Desperation
Down at the police station
We got kids killin' cops
And cops killin' kids right back
So I say...

There's got to be an easier way
Tell me there's a better way

Perscription
Another high-class recreation
Most of these people ain't seen a doctor in years
Reputation
Of my generation
The people with the power don't think we know
But we know...

There's got to be an easier way
Tell me there's a better way

If we all start runnin'
And we just do nothin'
There'll never be an easier way

Got to be an easier way
Tell me there's a better way
Track Name: I Am (Ideas)
I refuse to bend
I refuse to break
I've learned from the past
And from all my mistakes
That I am
All that I need

I've ridden the highs
I've ridden the lows
Paid the price
Just to know
That I am
All that I need

If you just blame the world for
The problems you've found
Don't be surprised when
Nobody's comin' around
You are all that you need

You got to own up to the
Line that you cast
Cuz if you don't it just may be
One of your last
You are all that you need
And I am
All that I need

Goin' through life
Without a plan
Is like askin' for more problems
Than grains of sand
I am
All that I need

I won't turn my back
To the world I live in
Disservice myself
My brothers and my kin
Though I am
All that I need
Track Name: Everyone (Ideas)
If the coast votes blue
And the middle votes red
Then we're still stuck here left in this mess
If the powers that be
Refuse to change their heads
Then we're still stuck here left in this mess

Times like these I call upon
Everyone
For its low seas that we're sailin' on
But the tide will come
Turn you eyes towards the sun
I said, Everyone
We need everyone

If the left blames the right
For all they've done and said
Then we're still stuck here left in this mess
If the right won't play fair
Sending more left for dead
Then we're still stuck here left in this mess

Times like these I call upon
Everyone
For its low seas that we're sailin' on
But the tide will come
Turn you eyes towards the sun
I said, Everyone
We need everyone

If you just point your finger
Pretending like you care
Then we're still stuck here left in this mess
The people aren't ready
And the time is almost here
We will need to get up and rise from this mess

Times like these I call upon
Everyone
For its low seas that we're sailin' on
But the tide will come
Turn you eyes towards the sun
I said, Everyone
We need everyone
Track Name: Maybe I'm Sorry (Not as Far)
Here we go for the hundredth time
You've got your reasons and I've got mine
Lets not talk this over
I know all the words that you're gonna say
"why you always gotta act this way?"
Lets just call this over

You think that its all my fault
What does that matter now?

Excuse me, but its time I go
But first I want to let you know
That baby I'm sorry
Don't you think its plain to see, you don't want to be with me at all
Maybe you're sorry
This time there'll be no next time
to say 'baby I'm sorry'

Here we go just one last time
And I know that you'll be just fine
Lets not talk this over
You're gonna be who you're gonna be
And find someone a little less like me
Good luck with another
Cuz I know this cant be my fault
We were in this together

Excuse me, but its time I go
But first I want to let you know
That, baby I'm sorry
Don't you think its plain to see
That you dont want to be with me at all
Maybe you're sorry

This time there'll be no next time
This time there is no next time
to say 'baby, I'm sorry'
Track Name: Not as Far (Dub Remix)(Not as Far)
I will stand atop everything that is mine
All thats around, beneath and inside
I'll show courage when I feel weak
I will listen much more than I speak
I will accept the good
Show more patience than I usually would
Sure as we'll someday grow old
I will fight for the ground that I hold

No one said it would be easy
With everyday its a little less hard
Stay pointed to where I am going
With everyday its not as far

Every chance I get, I'll try to express
Give thanks for how much I've been blessed
Sure to take pride in all I do
Be someone my people can bare witness to
I'm not trying to preach or impose
I'm a work in progress and so it goes
And sure as the next day will come
I'll work til my work is done

I will shake this hurried notion
That the best is yet to come
I will stumble here and there
The straight and narrow, easier said than done.
Track Name: Don't Dream It's Over *Bonus*
There is freedom within
There is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead
Many battles are lost
But you'll never reach the end of the road
While you're traveling with me

CHORUS:
Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car
There's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today
Tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the TV page

CHORUS

Now I'm walking again
To the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead
Barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief
Track Name: And It Stoned Me *Bonus*
Half a mile from the county fair
And the rain keep pourin down
Me and billy standin there
With a silver half a crown
Hands are full of a fishin rod
And the tackle on our backs
We just stood there gettin wet
With our backs against the fence
Oh, the water
Hope it don't rain all day

Chorus:
And it stoned me to my soul
Stoned me just like jelly roll
And it stoned me
And it stoned me to my soul
Stoned me just like goin home
And it stoned me

Then the rain let up and the sun came up
And we were gettin dry
Almost let a pick-up truck nearly pass us by
So we jumped right in and the driver grinned
And he dropped us up the road
We looked at the swim and we jumped right in
Not to mention fishing poles
Oh, the water
Let it run all over me

Chorus

On the way back home we sang a song
But our throats were getting dry
Then we saw the man from across the road
With the sunshine in his eyes
Well he lived all alone in his own little home
With a great big gallon jar
There were bottles too, one for me and you
And he said hey! there you are
Oh, the water
Get it myself from the mountain stream
Track Name: I Am (That I Am) *Bonus*
I'm not in this world
To live up to your expectations
Neither are you here to live up to mine, yeah
I don't owe no one
No obligation
No I don't mean none
So everything is fine, fine

I said I am that I am

Don't underestimate
My ability
Don't definate my character
Don't belittle
My authority
It is time you recognized my quality

Learn to love
To love your brother
Don't covet your neighbor
Flee from the city
It's getting shitty
It is full of out-a-quity(Inequity)
