Track Name: What's Going On
War is hell, when will it end?
When will people start getting together again?
Oh, what's happening brother?

War is hell, when will it end?
When will people start getting together again?
Oh, tell me, what's happening brother? Oh, brother,

Mother, mother,
There's too many of you crying,
And brother, brother, brother,
There's far too many of you dying,
You know we've got to find a way,
To bring some lovin' here today,

Father, father,
We don't need to escalate,
You see, war is not the answer,
For only love can conquer hate,
You know we've got to find a way,
To bring some lovin' here today,

Picket lines and picket signs,
Don't punish me with brutality,
Talk to me, so you can see,
What's going on, what's going on,
What's going on, what's going on,
Oo oo oo, oo oo,
Aah aah aah aah, oo oo,
Oo oo oo, oo oo,
Aah aah aah aah, oo oo,

Mother, mother, everybody thinks we're wrong,
But who are they to judge us,
Simply because our hair is long,
And you know we've got to find a way,
To bring some understanding here today,

Picket lines and picket signs,
Don't punish me with brutality,
Talk to me,
So you can see,
What's going on, what's going on,
What's going on, what's going on,
Oo oo oo, oo oo,
Aah aah aah aah, oo oo,
La la la la la la, la la la la la la,
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la, la la la la la la,
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la,
Track Name: Hallelujah
Well, I heard there was a secret chord,
That David played, and it pleased the Lord,
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
Well, it goes like this,
The fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall, and the major lift,
The baffled king composing Hallelujah,

Hallelujah {4x}

Your faith was strong but you needed proof,
You saw her bathing on the roof,
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya,
So she tied you to her kitchen chair,
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair,
And from your lips, she drew the Hallelujah,

Hallelujah {8x}

Maybe there’s a God above,
But all I’ve ever learned from love,
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya,
Well, it’s not a cry that you hear at night,
It’s not somebody who's seen the light,
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah,

Hallelujah {8x}
Track Name: Made In America feat. Sikka Psy
{Chorus}
Sweet King Martin, Sweet Queen Coretta,
Sweet Brother Malcolm, Sweet Queen Betty,
Sweet Mother Mary, Sweet Father Joseph,
Sweet Jesus, we made it in America,
Sweet baby Jesus, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America,
Sweet baby Jesus, sweet baby Jesus, we made it in America,

{Verse 1} [Erron Jay]
Mama told me no more slavery, look at your ankles and wrists, no more chains on me,
400 years, blood & sweat mixed with tears, stepping out on faith, just to face our fears,
Bloods & Crips on a slave ship, we were stacked on stacked on stacked, blacks on blacks on blacks,
Shed Blood turned them gallows to a Crypt, we landed on the moon, computers & cell phones,
Cure for AIDS & racism coming, it can't be long,
Can't know where you're going without knowing where you're coming from,
We need community, give us free,
Jesus was a black man that died for me,
R.I.P. to the King, and Brother Malcolm,
Footprints in the sand, let's change the outcome,
Spike Lee, do the right thing,
40 acres & a mule, (Acoustic Kats sing),

{Verse 2} [Sikka Psy]
I told my mama I'm a be a rapper, years later, took a plane just to be an actor,
I used to wanna hug the block & be a trapper, til my homie got killed, now fear's a factor,
Got the blood of a slave, heart of a king,
You put your mind to it now, you'll do anything,
You put your prayers to it daily, you'll move anything,
Mountains, planets, just to reach your dream,
I do a song everyday & call it my thesis,
Left my momma on the porch singing, (Sweet baby Jesus),
Land of the free, home of the brave,
They say your life's an open book, just turn the page,
And if you find a chapter out that you don't like,
Man, rip it right out, tell it goodnight,
No turbulence in the sky, that's a good flight,
And pray to Jesus everyday just to get right,

{Verse 3} [eRich]
They used to tell us go home, been hated in America for far too long,
When we were singing her songs, the pigs held the barrels right up under our throats,
But now we free baby, at least we free in body now,
All is fair in war, but Love can free everybody now,

{Bridge} [Sikka Psy]
When Barack got in, swear I partied like a rock star,
Years later, cops wanna put me in the squad car,
My homie chased jobs, not he got tired feet,
So he took the LeBron way & he rolled with the Heat,
America, I know you hear me, yes, I love you dearly,
But these taxes out my check really hurt me silly,
Oprah got Harpo money, mine is close to Celie,
So I grind all day just to pay my billies.
Track Name: Yellow
{Verse 1}
Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah they were all yellow,

I came along,
I wrote a song for you,
And all the things you do,
And it was called yellow,

So, then I took my turn,
Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all yellow,

{Chorus 1}
You're skin,
Oh yeah, you're skin and bones,
Turned into something beautiful,
You know, you know I love you so,
You know I love you so,

{Verse 2}
I swam across,
I jumped across for you,
Oh, what a thing to do,
Cause you were all yellow,

I drew a line,
I drew a line for you,
Oh, what a thing to do,
And it was all yellow,

{Chorus 2}
You're skin,
Oh yeah, you're skin and bones,
Turned into something beautiful,
You know, for you I'd bleed myself dry,
For you, I'd bleed myself dry,

{Outro}
Oh girl, it's true,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for you,

Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine,

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do.
Track Name: So High
{Verse 1}
Baby since the day you came into my life,
You made me realize that we were born to fly,
You showed me everyday new possibilities,
And you proved that my fantasies of love could really be,
Let's go to a place only lovers go,
To a spot that we've never known,
To the top of the clouds,
We're floating away,

{Chorus 1}
Ooh, this feels so crazy,
Oh, this love is blazing,
Baby, we're so high,
Walking on cloud 9,
So high, So high,

{Verse 2}
Maybe later we can go up to the moon,
Or sail amongst the stars before the night is through,
And when morning comes, we will see the sun is not so far,
And we can't get much closer to God than where we are,
Let's go to a place only lovers go,
To a spot that we've never known,
To the top of the clouds,
We're floating away,

{Chorus 2}
Ooh, this feels so crazy,
Oh, this love is blazing,
Baby we're so high,
Walking on cloud 9,
So high, So high,

{Bridge}
So high,
My shoes are scraping the sky,
High, take you so high, take you so high cause,
(I wanna take you up,
You'll swear you've never been in love before,
And just when you've had enough,
You'll feel my touch and want this evermore)
That high, that high,
Ooh, yeah,

{Chorus 3}
This feels so crazy
My love is blazing,
Baby, we're so high,
Walking on cloud 9,
So high, So high,
So high,
My shoes are scraping the sky,
(We can go, if you want,
Let me know, what you want)

{Outro}
This is how love,
This is how love,
This is how love's supposed to be,
This is how love,
This is how love, how love, how love,
This is how love's supposed to be,
So high.
