Track Name: Community Love Song
And I'll be here forever
Or until I just die
And I'll see the concrete river
Like the one I can't cry
And I'll search for a reason the whole worlds love to lie
And I'll hope the tide is turning for my sweet baby rye

And You know, And you know I swear this
We'll have community one day
Build a family out of strangers down the way
Build a family out of strangers down the way

We will learn from each other
As we build something pure
We'll teach each other to live
Learn the meaning of secure
This is the end of servitude
We will learn to sweep our own floors
Teach each other to love
We need no less, no more
We need no less, no more

And You know, And you know I swear this
We'll have community one day
Build a family out of strangers down the way
Build a family out of strangers down the way (x2)
Track Name: Everyday
Everyday we bleed further and further and further away
And I've given you my youth what more do you want from me
Not much to say except I feel bad for the bankers and the robbers today
Cause they're living in the same way as you and me
They could be free, if they gave it all up including the kitchen fucking sink
Everything in this world ain't always right you know

And I'm sorry to say that some will work while the others will play
And I know in my heart that you deserve more
Working so hard everyday for such little pay oh yeah it's such a shame yeah
And I know in my heart that you deserve more

Just keep breathing my friends and so will I
Just keep breathing till the day we die
Just keep breathing my friends and so will I
Just Keep breathing till the day we die
Track Name: it starts here
And I'm not gonna believe that we have all we need
Cause if I keep living like this I'm gonna die on my knees

So I spend most of my days questioning the decisions that I've made
And often think of human life as one big mistake
But if that's gonna change it's going to start here with me
And if, If I'm gonna rid myself of shame well it's gonna take some time

I'm not saying it's hopeless anymore
I'm just hoping we'll help each other more
I'm not ignoring the wrong that's in my face
I just want to stop spitting venom back in it's place

Cause it's starts here
And it starts now
And it's starts with you and me (x2)

Cause it's more than fuck the system man
It's holding out your god damn hand
Cause it's not pushing each other down
It's pulling each other up

I'm not saying it's hopeless anymore
I'm just hoping we'll help each other more
I'm not ignoring the wrong that's in my life
I just want to stop spitting venom back in spite

Cause it's starts here
And it starts now
And it's starts with you and me
Track Name: Pedestrian
The populations sad
What they have is not so bad
Walking slowly in apathy
Or quick paced, quick paced and wildly
Oh my life is oh so pedestrian
That sometimes I feel like a victim x3

Wild conclusions and drastic accusations
I'm the three fingers pointing back yeah
And I'm on the verge of collapse now
(woahs)

Trying to remind myself of the difference between the formal and the factual
Living my life somewhere between the normal and the natural
(woahs)
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
I'm sick of talking about the government
The class war bullshit politics
Lets take these words right off of the street and feel the love beneath our feet

My daughters school is filled with lies
And these four walls don't give me peace of mind
Lets take these words right off of the street and feel the love beneath our feet
Beneath our feet

We could talk for years about all the things we hate about this city or town or we could just leave it behind (x2)

Lets hike out to the ocean side
Or hike along desert rocks
Lets take these words right off of the street and feel the love beneath our feet

Lets trudge along a mountain path to waterfalls far from trash
Lets take these words right off of the street and feel the love beneath our feet
Beneath our feet
Track Name: You and Me
You can shop at walmart and you can tell me what you've saved
You can spange all day for change so you can get a sandwich and a forty at that corporate space
And it doesn't really matter to me
Neither changes anything
No it doesn't really matter to me
Cause neither changes anything, anything

It's you
It's me
It's us x2

So I'm going to work all day
So I can buy shit that should be free
With the rest of my money, I'm going to buy stuff I don't need, I don't need
And it doesn't really matter to me
Neither changes anything
No it doesn't really matter to me
Cause neither changes anything, anything

It's you
It's me
It's us x2

We never change, We never learn a thing
We never change, We never learn a thing
