Track Name: Dig Your Own Grave
Dig Your Own Grave

You got it all figured out, don't you
gonna watch it all fade in the rear view
When are you gonna learn to keep your mouth shut?
You may be winning for now,  but so what?

You're so smart, you think you know what to do
I'm gonna take a step back and watch  you

Dig, Dig, Dig, Dig Dig Dig
Dig Dig Dig Dig 
Dig your own grave

Oh well,  There's something I forgot to mention
the road to hell is paved with good intentions
and your intention is to get what you want
but I know what you're gonna get - uh huh

You walk tall, your words are getting bolder,
better keep a sharp eye over your shoulder

Dig, Dig, Dig, Dig Dig Dig
Dig Dig Dig Dig 
Dig your own grave

Turn around, your past is catching up to you
I'm gonna take a step back, and enjoy you

Dig, Dig, Dig, Dig Dig Dig
Dig Dig Dig Dig 
Dig your own grave
Track Name: Go Get it Good
Get it Good

Boom hey
Boom hey

Wasting your time in search of anything
chasing that carrot on a string
you've got to break that spell and cut the cord
reach out and grab that golden ring

There’s no sense in waiting around...

Boom, hey, whoa oh
Go get it
We Ain't dead yet, so don't stop living
Boom hey, whoa oh
Go get it good

procrastination’s unbecoming you
the world is waiting your command
You're only whispering,
you should be screaming it
this is no time for idle hands.

There’s no sense in waiting around...

Boom, hey, whoa oh
Go get it
We Ain't dead yet, so don't stop living
Boom hey, whoa oh
Go get it good

Boom, hey, whoa oh
Don't sweat it
We All Fall down, but just stick with it
Boom hey, whoa oh
Go get it...

don't spend your life in a daydream
Wake up and make it come true
walk out that door and get on with it
the future is waiting on you

Hey

Boom, hey, whoa oh
Go get it
We Ain't dead yet, so don't stop living
Boom hey, whoa oh
Go get it good, Get it Good

Boom, hey, whoa oh
Don't sweat it
Take a swing - don’t miss a chance when fed it
Boom hey, whoa oh
Go get it good
Go get it good
Go get it good
Track Name: Meant to Rise
Meant to Rise

Whoa, oh oh

Whatever you say,
whatever you do
I’m on your side
I’m pulling for you

Whatever I say, whatever I do
I need you too
to pull me through

Time's not on our side
So just Make up your mind
Life before your eyes
We’re Meant to Rise

don't let them break you,
do what you want to
you won't back down,
wont turn around.

Challenge the world and
live out your plan
Make them all understand

Time's not on our side
So just Make up your mind
Life before your eyes
We’re Meant to Rise

Somethings got to give 
Living just to live
Somethings got to give 
Living just to live

Time's not on our side
So just Make up your mind
Life before your eyes
We’re Meant to Rise

Time's not on our side
Everybody falls, It happens to us all
Life before your eyes
We’re Meant to Rise
Track Name: What's Going On (f. Nickey Knoxx) - Marvin Gaye Cover
Mother, mother - There's too many people crying
Brother, brother - There's far too many people dying

You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

Father, father - We don't need to escalate
War is not the answer
Only love can conquer hate

You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

These headlines and protest signs
And all I see is brutality
Talk to me, so you can see

What's going on
What's going on

everybody so quick to judge a book, based upon the cover
turn their cheek, before they turn one page
just define me categorically, question me rhetorically
like I’m the one that’s stopping the change
well here’s my 2 cents
we got it wrong, cuz it sure ain’t nothing right about it
instead of standing up and fighting, we just writing about it
so passive and aggressive, passing on a message
as history repeats its clear we never learned the lesson

Mother, Mother - they don’t think we have a clue
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply for our point of view
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today

These headlines and protest signs
And all I see is brutality
Talk to me, so you can see

What's going on
What's going on

we all bleed the same blood don’t care what your hue is
black brown white or green Muslim or Jewish
you can be the poorest or your blood could be the bluest
but the common thread we share is that we all are human
we dug ourselves so deep, it’s finally hitting a nerve
see how wide we divide where our paths used to converge
if we believe in one another, it’s nothing we can’t do
nothing we can’t see, nothing we can’t prove
so tell me what’s going on
I’m talking to you
