about

This is a very precarious time for society. We are living in a world where our similarities as a people are far overshadowed by our self imposed divides. By highlighting our petty differences and clouding what makes us one people, we forget the cause and necessity for our solidarity.

Look out for yourselves and look out for each other. Use your minds, use your hearts, and use your voices.

Don't forget what makes us human, and don't forget what makes us free.

Thank you for listening.

Track Name: Change Today
Apathy today is spreaded and digested
Manipulated minds aren't shunned but suggested
Ignorance is bliss and these ways are never questioned
Our culture of violence is offered and ingested

Our hands never extended to help a lesser man
But I can't wrap my head around why no one understands
We all live in fear of one thing or another
But this fear could be erased if we looked at all as brothers

If we could come together just for the greater good
Than there would be no racists, no one misunderstood
No murderers or rapists, abolition so to speak
Cause on every block in every town someones children sleep
Eat the weak !

Compassion's obsolete, just as long as you can stand on your own two feet
Til the world can think of another before themselves
Than unity and love will sit rotting on the shelves

On the shelves
Rotting on the shelves
On the shelves
Rotting on the shelves

All this senseless hatred is standing in our way
If we can change ourselves than we can change today
All this senseless hatred is standing in our way
If we can change ourselves than we can change today

We can change the world , so set to change yourself
Be the change you wish to see for you and no one else
Try and survive with open minds and kindness in these trying times in a world of many divides for each other now with loving eyes

For kindness we are all deprived ignorance it multiplies we're busy living our own lives to smell the sweet and hear the cries
If we could come together just for the greater good, than there would be no racists, no one misunderstood

No murderers or rapists, abolition so to speak
Cause on every block in every town someone's children sleep
Eat the weak!
Compassion's obsolete just as long as you could stand on your own two feet

Until the world can think of another before themselves
Than unity and love will sit rotting on the shelves

On the shelves
Rotting on the shelves
On the shelves
Rotting on the shelves

All this senseless hatred is standing in our way
If we can change ourselves than we can change today
All this senseless hatred is standing in our way
If we can change ourselves than WE. CAN. CHANGE. TO. DAY.
Track Name: P8TH
To live life is to suffer
Attachments reason for pain
An end to all is right in sight
The path just needs to be paved
As hard as it seems living in this world
Mentally enslaved
A struggle in sight now towards the white light
We fight these thoughts depraved

Look alive, step aside from modern world creation
Wide your eyes from inside comes modification
Look alive, step aside from modern world creation
Wide your eyes from inside comes modification

We dwell inside our minds
In every life time
The change starts inside
And these four truths will guide

To live life is to suffer
Attachments reason for pain
An end to all is right in sight
The path just needs to be paved
As hard as it seems living in this world
Mentally enslaved
A struggle in sight now towards the white light
We fight these thoughts depraved

Right view right intention
Wisdom is born
Right speech right action
And our path carries on
Livelihood mindfulness
And concentration
Builds the road were on
Toward self realization


Right view right intention
Wisdom is born
Right speech right action
And our path carries on
Livelihood mindfulness
And concentration
Builds the road were on
Toward self realization

To live life is to suffer!

To live life is to suffer
Attachments reason for pain
An end to all is right in sight
The path just needs to be paved
As hard as it seems living in this world
Mentally enslaved
A struggle in sight now towards the white light
We fight these thoughts depraved
