Track Name: Funky Mission
The way of the lord has made us funky
Like he made oceans skies and monkeys
He gave us all a special mission
It wasn’t really our decision

He gave us the groove
He showed us the moves
He taught us the bit and brakes that last so long
You never know when they're gonna end
Or if they'll start to run again…and again

The time has come for your salvation
Under the groove we are the nation
So feel alive don’t fear the music
Our mission is to make sure that you won't lose it

He gave us the groove
He showed us the moves
He taught us the bit and brakes that last so long
You never know when they're gonna end
Or if they'll start to run again…and again

We have seen the funk we're saved
We're gonna mend our ways today, tonight, this year, right now
Find it in your heart it's there
If you think it's hard don't worry
‘Cause we won't stop till you all get saved

Now all you got to do people is raise your hands
And stomp your feet on god made land
Feel the groove running through your veins
And free yourself

We have seen the funk ……
Track Name: W.G.T.A
People killing one another calling it a war
Brothers ganging up on brothers they don’t know what for

Gather all your facts together and show us what you got
We will find the simple answer that maybe you forgot

We got the answers
To all your problems

Lonely souls that walk the earth are looking for some love
Hidden truth that drowns in lies and wants to rise above

Traffic jams city mornings Seem to drive you mad
Corruption makes it hard for you to know the good from bad

We got the answers
To all your problems

It's time for a revolution
Its time to make a change

Hungry children everywhere just wishing to survive
All this air pollution makes it hard to stay alive

Chasing after money you forget what life's about
Seem sometimes there's no solution Makes you want to shout

We got the answers
To all your problems

It's time for a revolution
Its time to make a change

People killing one another
Brothers ganging up on brothers
Gather all your facts together
We will find the simple answer

We got the answers……
Track Name: Choose Your Way
When all that love has given you is pain*
And all the rays of sun have bore you rain
Frightened that you'll never fall in love again
You know there really ain’t no one to blame

The dream you had last night seemed to disappear*
And that my be the source of all your fears
You wake up and your pillow's soaked with tears
Cry to the sky but there's no one to hear

Choose your way that’s your statement
Try to stray look for a gate
Who's to say you choose your own fate
You can never be too late.

Thousands of days have past since you’ve been born
Some days together most of them alone
What the future hides is not for you to see
Like great have said before just let it be.
Track Name: I Want Your Love
Woman let me spend my nights with you
And the days the morning evening noon
I will give to you my sun and moon
Baby let me make you feel good

I want your love
I need your touch
I want your love
I need your love

Girl I know I got a lot to give
And we only get one life to live
There's no way I'll let you get away
When I tell you, you got to stay

The sun that always shines is you
I know everything you say is true
If I knew what you wanted too
Then I'd have the peace to tell you

I want your love…..

Lovely Lady, surrender your love to me
We can grow together and be
All that we will ever need.

I want your love…..
Track Name: Remember Me
So I thought you'd like to meet me again

Remember me
I'm the one who cleared your way
Remember me
I'm the one who didn't let you pay

You came up to me
Who gave who whose number
You reached out for me
And now I'm reaching out for you

So I thought you'd like to meet me again

Remember me
I wore my best suit on for you
Remember me
I showed you pictures from Peru.

You came up to me
Who gave who whose number
You reached out for me
And now I'm reaching out for you

-Well I don’t understand I'm a handsome man
Was there a flaw in my plan?
Man the plan la grand
I went down low I licked your toes
I felt your mom diffused a bomb gave a buzz cut to your dog
I polished each and every car that parked around my house
And it took me years to perfect the slide show I put up for you
And my mom said that it's ok and she will pay for the wall I crashed into when I came to pick you up but you will have to pay for fixing up the car because it was your wall and it was just standing there…..

Remember me?
Track Name: Dog & Cat
It's like dog and cat like cat and mouse
Like mouse and cat and dog all put together
It's like sun and moon March and June
Like living and believing that it's out there

Like yin and yang dried out land
And finding time to thank the lord you're living
When all the world around you
Seems to sometime stop from spinning

You try to find
The meaning in what I do
Don’t try so hard
Just let the feeling find you

It's like birds and trees grass and green
And people being mean to one another
It's like day and night low and high
Ask me why and I won't know

You try to find…….

It's to get up on your feet one day
And see the race has already begun
And everybody’s horses seem to run amok
And yours seem to be sitting down

You try to find…….
Track Name: So Long
I don't want to be the only one
Who stands and sees the setting sun
Wherever I look I see them laughing
They don't give a damn about nothing

Sometimes all I want to do is run
When trees are falling one by one
All that’s green is turning into grey
And all that’s left for me to do is pray

So long, since the people got together
And gave something back for what they got
So long, we respected one another
And the ground we live and die on
Sometimes we forget that life is so beautiful under the sun
And we should get together for our future
There's no planet like this one

I found another planet to live on
But I ain’t gonna show it to anyone
I'm gonna try to do it right this time
At least until the laughing people come

So long…….
Track Name: People Want More
We lived in the Garden of Eden for a while
Covered with some leaves
Then one very special lady couldn’t fight her desire
And no more walking naked in the streets

You know people can never be satisfied
I'm talking about me (I'm talking about you friend)
You always seem to want to fly so high
Don’t forget what you have in your own hands

How come all the people want more
You gotta be happy
How come all the people want more
You gotta be happy with what you have

I know you know
How to let go
Then we will learn to live together

How come all the people want more
You gotta be happy
How come all the people want more
You gotta be happy with what you have
Track Name: Funkey
We got the funkey funkey funkey funkey funkey
'Cause we're the funky funky Funk'n'Stein The Band

You got to open up the door
You got to let the funk flow
You got to let yourself go
Right on…

We got the FunKey………
Track Name: The Morning Hush
The Morning hush
The huggin' chill
Can you feel
It’s all around
Don’t rush through the morning hush

When I try to know why
This life is how it is

The Midnight kiss
The touch of sheets
Will I make the morning proud
‘Cause what he wants to give is all we have

When eyes cry yours mine
Don’t know why it feels the way it is

Let the stars and sun become your guide
May you never ask your soul to hide
And you'll find the peace inside your mind
You can keep on asking why…

The evening breeze
The brush of trees
Can you still feel?
Your day your life your way

When eyes cry yours mine
Don’t know why it feels the way it is
Track Name: W.G.T.A
People killing one another calling it a war
Brothers ganging up on brothers they don’t know what for

Gather all your facts together and show us what you got
We will find the simple answer that maybe you forgot

We got the answers
To all your problems

Lonely souls that walk the earth are looking for some love
Hidden truth that drowns in lies and wants to rise above

Traffic jams city mornings Seem to drive you mad
Corruption makes it hard for you to know the good from bad

We got the answers
To all your problems

It's time for a revolution
Its time to make a change

Hungry children everywhere just wishing to survive
All this air pollution makes it hard to stay alive

Chasing after money you forget what life's about
Seem sometimes there's no solution Makes you want to shout

We got the answers
To all your problems

It's time for a revolution
Its time to make a change

People killing one another
Brothers ganging up on brothers
Gather all your facts together
We will find the simple answer

We got the answers……
Track Name: Always
I know we haven’t talked for sometime D
I think you still got something that belongs to me
I know we shouldn't talk and you want to stay apart
But I can't go on if you still got my heart

You know I love you
Always

There was no other choice but leaving
Now it's harder to enjoy the joy life's giving
It's hard to know, where do I go from here.
But I want to keep on saying
And I want the world to hear

You know I love you
Always

After all this time that passed away
The time has come for me to go my way
Finally I'm ok with knowing that you'll never be mine
But I want to keep on living
With this feeling in my mind

You know I love you
Always
Track Name: War & Pain
In the land of the free
In the land of the young
The land of promises
From the beginning of time

You find yourself
Look around
Try to have some fun
In the land of the young

War and pain
Is what we live in

War and pain
No time for games
No time for love
All you see is blood
Everywhere you go
To the left to the right
All you see is war and pain

War and pain
Is what we live in

Take a step back
Look around
Find your hurts
Then calm them down
Baby steps
To become the whole one
Breathe in breathe out
Try not to breakdown
And let yourself shout
WAR AND PAIN

War and pain
Is what we live in

Do you want to make a move
Track Name: Come And Join Me
Come on now
Come and join me
To the place I wanna be

Hey Mr. computer
Get out of your spaceship and come over
We don't use no software here you see
All we got is this little tree

Hey Mrs. Microwave
Where are you running say what's the rush?
You know the pleasure is much higher
When you cook on real fire

Come on now
Come and join me
To the place I wanna be

Come over little lady
You don’t look like you’re one of the Bradys
Stop analyzing every little thing
Come enjoy our squeaky swing

Hey Mr. musician
What's that sound you're making?
Take a break and listen to some harmony
Under our tree

Come on now
Come and join me
To the place I wanna be
Track Name: Celebrate Your Mind
Your boobs are great baby
Your hair is soft and smells like flowers
You walk just like a lady
And I can touch your gentle skin for hours

Your legs are long and tempting
Your lips are absolute divine
Your ass is totally smashing babe
But for today I want to celebrate your mind

I want to celebrate your mind
I want to celebrate your mind

Your feet are asking for my kisses
Your ears are perfect for your head
Your eyebrows make me full of bliss
I always dream of them in bed

Your nose is full of character
And your heart so tied to mine
And I'm just crazy for your laughter
But for today I want to celebrate your mind

I want to celebrate your mind
I want to celebrate your mind

I want to celebrate your mind
Every cell of your attractive brain
I've never seen a brain so fine
So please let me celebrate your mind

I want to celebrate your mind
Track Name: Good To Be Dead
I'm floating from cloud to cloud
Finally I’ve got a reason to be proud
You all look so tiny from up here
So far but you baby seem so near

It's good to be dead
It's good to be dead
Better then a lie in bed

I told you I'll love you till the day I die
Now I'm free, I'm free to fly
I still remember till death do us part
Sometimes it's good to have a fresh start

It's good to be dead
It's good to be dead
Better then a lie in bed

You’ve got to be good when you're alive
Otherwise you can't survive
‘Cause in these cloudy white skies
You've gotta have a pair of wings to fly

It's good to be dead
It's good to be dead
Better then a lie in bed
