Family Tree (Lennon, Sorensen, Pezzano, Guasco)

Chorus:
Keep on adding branches to the family tree
that we've sprouted up from this Sol Seed
and that's the reason why our roots grow deep
Keep on adding branches to the family tree
that we've sprouted up from this Sol Seed
and that's the reason why our roots run deep


Lennon:
Plant the seed
in the dirt
Sun will shine
as we work

to let it grow strong
to help it grow
but we can't do this

On our own
and so we need
Helping souls
family

to let it grow strong
to help it grow


Pezzano:
Loving, supporting local vibes
from the passions of our hometown
We hitting the stage and setting the pace
Yeah, this is how we throw down
You people keep us moving
These rhythms keep you grooving
So stop what'cha doing
And let the music take you higher


Reprise:
We feel the love, feel the love
(When you)
Bring the love, bring the love
(Yeah we)
Feel the love, feel the love
It's the feeling that fuels the fire, yeah


Sorensen:
Universally we're one
Brothers of the song
Provided by our family and growers of our love
Spreading out our roots on this muddy earth of fun
Nurturing our lyrics from the power of the sun
Always playing music and putting out the vibe
Blowing like the leaves, we're frozen in time
Dropping off our seeds, they germinate right
They germinate right yeah


Guasco:
Trees, greens leaves, climb them, shade
With every single breathe my family tree is being made
I'm amazed, what can I say, for the love that comes our way
The people and places that host us on our journey everyday
We cannot tell you how much we adore you and everything that you do for us
Your love and your light, your smile so bright is magically contagious
We're open arms at every show
We're family now, so...



Rags to Wisdom (Lennon)

Chorus:
What's the poor man say?
Yeah What's the poor man say?
"Oh I need some more"

But What's the rich man say?
Yeah What's the rich man say?
"Oh I want it all"

What's the wise man say?
Yeah What's the wise man say?
"I have this world
I am everything so I have everything I could need.
Yes we are everything so we have everything we could need


Well there's a man in the streets of a concrete jungle
looking for something to eat
With his hands holding tight to a sign of his struggle
asking for help getting free
And some people may try to tend to his heart
by buying his needs
But for what he is looking, like this, he never will receive
what he is looking for is simply a truth to believe


and up above, at the top
of the concrete tower
there's a man and his thoughts
of his wants and his needs
and his hunger for power
and the hunger won't stop
so he takes and he takes
from the near and the needy
'til they're ready to drop
for inside his soul is a hole he can never fill up
though he tries and he tries, the lies will never be love


and on the sand of the shore
by the big blue ocean
there's a man who has got
all he wants, all he needs,
all he ever could hope for
though all he hopes for is love
he is no longer bound by
his and his fear and his limits
he has risen above
for his heart and his mind have unified as one
and he sees himself in the eyes of everyone



Fresh Squeezed (Lennon)

Exsqueeze me some of that lemonade
but I'm pretty sure that it's getting late
and we should leave before the sun stops shining
I'll be your ocean, you be my island

When I am crashing on your shores
I'm just like the water moving back and forth
follow the light of the setting sun
'til high tide when the morning come

Take it easy
If you wanna ride

Baby won't you maybe let me be the man
leaving the ripples in your warm sand
because the way that you're shaking's
got me about to beg
want to cool you down with my smooth waves

Ride on my rhythm back up to the beach
take in the heat while the moon sleeps
and when she wake again to a dark night
strike the iron let the sparks fly

Take it easy
If you wanna ride

(Reprise)
Exsqueeze me some of that lemonade
but I'm pretty sure that it's getting late
and we should leave before the sun stops shining
I'll be your ocean, you be my island



Roach in the Water (Lennon)

Chorus:
Roach in the water
Roach in the water
don't go tokin' with the sheriff's daughter
yeah that's how he got taken away

Her papa came across the evidence
now he don't get to see his friend's
cause he spending all his time in the state penitentiary


it all began out of chance
thursday afternoon
he saw her dance, just one glance
and he surely knew
so he worked up the heart to ask
if there's anything they could do
she said tomorrow night my place
and baby bring a big ol' doob


well that was a sweet friday night
by her side, gazing at the stars
with the smoke their eyes and the music
in their hearts
she took him down to the water
and that's when the fire starts
the younguns started lovin
and left the roach swimming in the dark


Chorus


Her papa came home early morning like he usually does
He was the sheriff of the town coming from the night shift hor his morning cup
He stepped outside to sip his joe down by the water
and that's when he found the roach left there by that boy and his daughter


So he marched right up and he woke her out of bed
Asking, "Girl, what is this?" and you should hear just what she said
She told him, "I'm sorry Daddy but I had never hung out with a dread.
It's that neighbor boy's fault, you should go blame him instead."


And that's when her daddy turned the knob from ten to twelve
this little lady's lies would make this boy's life a living hell
'cause now her papa was determined to get his ass in a jail cell
just for sharing some sweet ganja with this beautiful young belle


Chorus



Madre Tierra (Lennon)

Chorus:
Le presto mi corazón a la Madre Tierra
y el cielo que agarra la luz del sol
He cantado al viento hasta que el mar me oyera
y todos bailaron con el ritmo de las olas del oceano

Mañana me levanto
esperando por un descanso
Un descanso por el mundo
y está en nuestras manos
Creo que somos reyes y reinas
si creerían, si sentirían
si cantarían al viento
y bailarian con el ritmo

En el dia me levanto
esperando por un descanso
Un descanso por el pueblo
y está en nuestras manos
Creo que somos reyes y reinas
si creerián, si sentirían
si cantarían al viento
y bailarian con el ritmo



Ego Balloon (Lennon, Guasco)

Lennon:
step on the stage and I breathe slow
as I listen to the shouts and screams from the people
they giving love but I only what I need
so I don't over inflate ego
and now they saying that I'm on the rise
I'm gonna get my prize
thinking that the love'll leave my sight
but this dream's the only thing inside of my mind
lift my spirit up and let my heart catch fire
lift these lyrics up so we can all take flight
i know I ain't shit if no one listens to what I spit on the mic
I'm just another fuckin fool like the rest of us
without that truth to hold I know my soul'll make an exodus
but don't say that you know the deal
before you walked my shoes you got no clue about it feels
everyday trying to keep it real
stay concerned with what i've learn so I can earn more than mass appeal


Guasco:
Back in the day when I couldn't even tie my shoes
I knew it was up to me to break rules
Stand up to myself get that chip off my shoulder
Make Steps, build blocks and never bend over

This my life, I'll make the most of it
Keep my feet moving, chin up and never quit
I've got big dreams, I'm doing big things
I put the FUN in fungi, let my heart sing

I'll be polite to my elders, shake hands and bow down
'Cuz they gave me the freedom to run around town
Never settle down, stay motivated
Grow dreadlocks and remain meditated

Imma grow up a strong, humble and smart man
Keep my thoughts straight and stick to the plan
I'll keep this World better regardless of the weather
Won't put limits on myself, beacause I'll only get better


Chorus:
you got your flaws, I got mine too
an everyday struggle to keep the truth
but I'm going to do what I'm going to do
to try and deflate this ego balloon
you got your flaws, I got mine too
an everyday struggle to keep the truth
but I'm going to do what I'm going to do
to try and deflate this ego balloon


Lennon:
it takes constant checks and balances
to keep pace with each day that passes on the calendar
each hand I shake is another set of challenges
to try and understand where the balance is
I'm walkin hard on a thin line
between confidence and thoughts suggestion I'm shit right?
and once I feel i've got the steps the test starts to incline
and suddenly I'm inclined to rewind
cuz no one cares about a talented man
who just stands on the stage with the mic in his hand
acting like he's got the game plan,
acting like he has no need for changing
i breathe the change in
I'm trying to keep the youth in my eyes
remembering the ways the in which music made me feel inspired
days and nights I would free style; made me feel like a free child


Guasco:
I'm as light as a feather and I'll always be grounded
I know what your thinking and I know how that sounded
But if you're thinking what I think your thinking... stop
I'm rising to the top
I'm thankful for every thing that I've got
I don't pretend to be anything that I'm not
I'm not a pot head, I'm not a hot-shot
I'm not better than you and I'm not what I'm not
But I am what I am and what I am I love
I'm not religious, but I believe in The Above
I give thanks every day for my friends and family
And most of all for those that look up to me
They're my little homies, I don't have look nice
They trust what I say, they don't have to ask twice
Trust in the man and I'm envious of them
They remind myself of who I really am



Solutions (Lennon, Sorensen, Pezzano, Guasco)

Chorus:
In the world of destruction
People search for solution
We'll find a way, we'll find a way, yeah
In this land of corruption
People fight for solution
We'll find a way, we'll find a way, yeah


Sorensen:
The lessons to life is to make the mistakes
You'll learn from the breaks as you build to the state
As a happy young blood with passion for change
So look into yourself for the message it takes
To construct your faith
Bridges are made
Connections in place
To mix up your fate
Every single soul has a path to make
So you'll grab it up and you'll be the change


Guasco:
Take the reigns, use your brain
Worry too much and you'll go insane
Never want to wear a frown on my face
I wake up in the morning with a goal to chase
My soul shines bright, energy, light
When the ropes unravelled, tie it tight
Life's too short to feel down
Be the ruler of your own time and wear that crown


Sorensen:
Work is an itch
But life is the lift
So you gotta just keep on struggling for it
cuz every single day is a moment for praise
So we give it all up to the gods of faith
For love and magic and music to change
Emotions and motives and this energy
To set the spirit free
Life's cup of tea
This music it comes and it fills me


Guasco:
Up, fill my cup
Half full, lose control
Living in love and I'm on a roll
Life's so good, achieve my goal
Feel love around me, Sol surrounds me
Never feel that I ever got enough
Life's about living not being tough
I'd be lying if I told you that I had it rough


Lennon:
Life, it's an everyday struggle
I break down and rebuild from rubble
Slow steps as I wade through the trouble
the work is hard and the change is subtle

Sometimes, I can lose my way
Regret my path and forget my place, but
Breath slow everything's okay
One more step for one more day



Green Collar Life (Lennon, Sorensen, Pezzano, Guasco)

Chorus:
Green collar life
Music is a blessing; our profession
Green collar life
never gonna stop this high


Pezzano:
This musics far-reaching
We teaching and preaching
To be breaching all the barriers, cuz' seeings believing
Dominating State of Jefferson, music is the message and
Percolating, inhilating special herbal medicine
Flying past the scenery
Puffing on the greenery
Laughing and relaxing, no worries, we be living free
I'm telling it straight
The people 'aint gonna' wait
We step on to the stage and it's magic that we make


Sorensen:
Rarely have to pay for the drink in my hand
Always got the girl Mary Jane for a dance
When we come to town we are here for a blast
Then we turn around and we're gone in a flash


Lennon:
Yes I got the fire in my soul
So give me just a second and again I'l rock this microphone
Livin' in lovin' is my goal
and the message that i'm sending is to free yourself from mind control
Yes it feels so nice
riding with the rhythm of this musical high
Oh it feels so right
just some green collar livin' in a beautiful life


Guasco:
Green Collar livin' has given the opportunity
To focus on my ideal reality
and that's playing music, staying lucid
Moving through life, free and fluid
Living on the road, achieving our goals
Brotherhood is like a family, support is all we know
I was working two jobs, sometimes three
but I knew from the beginning that wasn't for me
So, I kept my head down, continued grinding
but the only thing that I was finding
was an routine unclean for me to remain sorean
keep my mind and body pristine
no more suits and ties, no more headaches and lies
nothing but love for my favorite five guys
I started a Simplistic man and now a Sol Seed
This Green Collar life let's my soul breathe
Let your soul breathe.



Waking Up (Lennon)

Chorus:
I'm waking up to a dark night
With them clouds hanging over my head
But your by my side through these hard times
Lifting me up from the depths


What a beautiful blessing
Each breathe that I let in
is gettin me higher
and the truth in the lessons
a message that heaven's a
vision of I Earth
I feel your spirit
No face, no name
Your music I hear it
No race, no game


When I'm shaken from making my way
through the hatred to foster the love
You raise my vibrations, and give I
the patience to keep my head up
I feel your spirit
No face, no name
Your music I hear it
No race, no game


When my body fade back to pieces of an ancient sun
My spirit come back, spirit come back to you
For I and I is you and you and I is everyone
One vibration. Love vibration. Move



Don't Tell I (Lennon, Sorensen)

Chorus:
Don't tell I what I be
because the only to change I is me
I won't tell you what to do
because nobody really knows the truth


Lennon:
Rumbling the speakers, rumbling the bass
rumble party people all over the place
break out of your chains with your reggae homegrown
break out of your chains, you know your not alone
We've got our minds to make our own decisions
but still over time we're seeing someone else's vision
Like brother Marley said, “This is mind control.
Corruption of your thoughts, destruction of your soul.”


Sorensen:
The truth should be a mystery
Not written definitely
We're going back through history
Seeing all the scenes we've seen
We will write these prophecies
War, Anger, Bigotry
I know what we will bring
Simple peace and harmony
My feet on the ground
Stomping all around
I'll raise Gaia up and bring this beautiful sound
So come on and sing with me
Children of the earth and sea
Imprisoned by society but
We will break free


Lennon:
and when are we going to see our individuality
contrary to society and what we see on the TV screen
and when are we going to know, that life is only hard
because we make it so. there's no need for control
when they tell you how to go make sure you let them know

Don't tell I, Don't tell I
When I'm rumbling through your speakers
and I'm rumbling through your town
Don't tell I, Don't tell I
When I'm rumbling through your speakers
and I'm burning babylon down




Mind to the World (Lennon, Sorensen, Pezzano)

Lennon:
I wake up under different suns each time I close my eyes
to break up all these ignorant thoughts that seem to cloud my sight
now i want to be omniscient,
but i've been thinking things are suspicious
so i strive to set my vision to the wishes of my soul,
try to take a lesson try to listen to what i'm told
and tame the ego, forget the divide
that this self-domestication is impressing on our minds
walk far, listen hard, never end up following'
gotta claim your heart before the devil tries to swallow it
not a fallen angel but the fear that is in all of us
keeping these divisions, superstitions only stalling us
seems a lot of people walk around with their masquerades
limits on their vision and decisions to get mad and hate
some people can't relate, don't see it's all just fate
that we're all products of our learning and our birthing place so


Chorus:
Open up your mind to the world
open up your heart and let your soul unfurl x4


Sorensen:
We're wishing peace for the restless
And health to the sick
Food for the hungry
And shelter to the house less
cuz the only way to build up a strong generation
Is to put aside all your negative vibrations
Gonna take from the greedy and we'll give it to the needy
Spiritual healing is the cosmos believing
In the power of the elders passed down to the kneeling
Mantras giving passage to the positive for bleeding
Oh we've got enough love for everyone
Spread it through the land like the rising sun
Bless to your daughter, Bless to your sons
Bless to yourself for you're part of the one
So put down your weapons, put down your guns
The way to gain peace is to fight with your tongue
I said put down your weapons, put down your guns
The way to gain peace is to fight with your tongue


Pezzano:
When living in these troubling times
It's often hard to see
The beauty that certainly lies inside of you and me
Everyday that I wake up
I plant the seed
Everyday the sun breaks the dawn
Well it's a day we are free
So take a little walk with me
Oh, down the sandy shore
Aside the ocean of our thoughts
In search for something more
Forget your troubles and delusions
Leave them in your shoes
Forget all of your reservations
You've got nothing to lose




Waterspout (Lennon, Sorensen, Pezzano)

Chorus:
That itzy bitzy spider
went up the waterspout
Down came the rain (down came the rain)
and washed the spider out
then out came the sun
and dried up all the rain
and that itzy bitzy spider
went up the spout again


Lennon:
We're all little spiders
I can see that truth now
as we keep on striving
the wicked rain down

We must burn with the fire
I can feel that truth now
if our souls keep shining
we know the sun will come out

And we'll breath
in the beauty of our movement
Ah oo oo oo
Ah oo oo oo

As we believe
the truth's that we can do this
if our souls keep shining
we know the sun will come out


Sorensen:
He be looking down the long dark hallway of life
Wondering where it ends
Down came the rain
Down came the rain
And washed him back to the beginning again
Said out came the sun
and dried up and his tears
He picked him self up
And dust himself off
And overcame his fears


Down came the rain (down came the rain)



The Journey (Lewis)

Everyone's got a story
They gonna want to tell
‘bout their journey through life
struggles survived
standing up when they had fell
and I know my journey
has got a long way to go
and my strength will be tried
so will my pride
but I have to walk this road
I will strum it hard
and oh you know it comes from my heart
I will play my song until there's holes in my guitar
and I will sing it loud
oh you know i'll sing it proud
this is my journey
my journey


Oh oh oh
I will surely go
keep moving forward now
keep moving forward know oh oh (repeat)


I am sitting here
wondering why my head won't clear
so many thoughts it's hard to keep track anymore
but it don't bring me down
because I take the higher ground
and that smoke just drifts through
the cracks beneath my door


Oh oh oh
I will surely go
keep moving forward now
keep moving forward know oh oh (repeat)



The Balance (Lennon)

With the sun I'll rise
Hear the whisper of the ocean
See it my eyes
Breathe and listen, sweet emotion
There's a change inside
A symptom of these passing days
Got to learn to ride
On the crest of these crashing waves


Hoping not to drown
Though the water's far above my head
Focus on the sound
Wake me up now from the dead
Let the rhythm pound
Make the music come alive
Keep my balance now
Ready for this rising tide


I watch the horizon change
Standing on the shore
Feeling the tidal wave
rushing towards me

And will I find the balance
When it's time
Will I fall
will I stand up and ride

Still� it is a challenge
A hope that I can find
In my heart
A strength that never dies

Though it is a challenge
Still I hope I'll find
In my heart
The strength that never dies


Don't wash me away
Tidal wave, tidal wave
