Track Name: Wake-Up Call
we've gotta see the grass on the other side,
watch it turn from green to yellow and then die
in order to see in a new light, this place that we call home.
this eden of our own.

we need a wake-up call, but not just once a lifetime,
you'll find out that we need it every day.

if you travel to see how the have-nots live,
you get humbled, but it doesn't last,
you swallow the pill to see past the window sill,
but it wears off fast.

we need a wake-up call, but not just once a lifetime,
you'll find out that we need it every day.
Track Name: Louder Than Lyrics
the only bars that we're behind are 4/4 signature time
and we are able to find the key much more easily

we are just the commentators, we're not in the boxing ring
and we are just the war reporters, gotta keep our hands clean

but dictators won't step down and economies won't shape up
if you just sing

actions speak louder than lyrics

dictators won't step down and economies won't shape up
if you just sing
