DEFY GRAVITY

1. LIVE BY THE DAY

Because we live by the day

Love by the night

The way you move

Got me feeling it alright

How your body shake

I'm feeling so alive

Never felt better

When I'm looking in your eye


Natural, the rain it falls

And patter on my window

So you move

Beautiful and true

You do


Easy as, the river flows

Steady with its motion

So you shine

Beautiful on me

So sweet


Because we live by the day

Love by the night

The way you move

Got me feeling it alright

How your body shake

I'm feeling so alive

Never felt better

When I'm looking in your eye


Gentle as the

Night it falls

Ever with its motion

You are there

In my time of need

So Sweet


Storm they gonna come

Winds it’s gonna blow

Checking our devotion

You can find

Comfort in me

You'll see


Because we live by the day

Loving by the night

The way you move

Got me feeling it alright

How your body shake

I'm feeling so alive

Never felt better

When I'm looking in your eyes


2. HOLD ON

Hold on, when the money’s too tight

And you’ve got nothing going on

Hold on


Hold on, when you can’t see the light

And you can’t find a spark

You’ve got to

Hold on


I went swimming with the sharks

Couldn’t move for I was frozen

Had to sturdy up my heart

Turn it’s color from red to golden


This is how I’ll stay

Never let it fade, away


You’ve got to

Hold on

Hold on, when the money’s too tight

And you’ve got nothing going on


Hold on, when you can’t see the light

And you don’t have a spark

Hold on


I was walking in the dark

Hard to see, only shadow

Had to sturdy up my heart

Shine a light, for you to follow


This is how I’ll stay

Never let it fade, away

This is how I’ll stay

Never let is fade, away


Your got to

Hold on

Hold on, when the money’s too tight

And you’ve got nothing going on

Hold on


Hold on, when the money’s too tight

And you’ve got nothing going on

Hold on


Yes you’ve got to

Hold on

When the money’s too tight

And you can’t find a light

When you stuck in the dark

And you can’t find your heart

Hold on


3. MERIDIAN (feat. The Late Ones)

Got to be kidding man

Cousin to prime meridian

Rippin it and a stick it

The wickedest flow so


Swinging low on my chariot

Pick it up and I’m carrying

Turn up the fader

And I push it the most


I know your bumpin it

Loving it and a jumping with

With the Elovated feeling

Put you in the right mood


You got the Jones in your bones

Make yourself at home

We bring a message

That you never should lose


Said she wants my ganja

Said she wanna puff my herb so

Said she wants my loving

So I got to give it to her so


So I gotta give her some


I gotta bring it and sing it

I got the wickedest rhythm

I bring the style with the dubbiest flow so


My mind combined with a spirit

I gotta spit it when I hear and near it

Hit with the fear of the ghost


Bust out confetti flow is cold as a yeti

I’m always ready and steady

We love the people the most


I get so high see a bird going by on fire

I got the Phoenix and it’s

Killin my throat


My brother called me up yo

Its Elovaters ya know

He said he got him a riddim and now hes spittin his flow

I gotta hit my ganja girl then its on catch me on the road

Send that over bout to cruise to the studio

Smoke it up feel it out let the lyrics flow

Vibes is high keep the bass hella loud and low

I don’t need you in my bed I need you in my head

Sensimillia trails makin love watchin the love spread


Man it don’t matter the situation my mind is constantly racing

I’m forever just thinking bout her

I know she wit it because the sky's the limit

TLO constantly giving food for thought what’s the word

You know the world is just judging they look at us like we buggin

I keep my head high while I’m smoking this herb erb/

Everybody got a story f** the fame I want the glory

Got a team of warriors like I’m Steve curry


4. GONNA SHINE

When you get so down that you can't feel a thing

When the pressure gonna come

Surrounding everything

When the darkness falls like a hammer to the light

That darkness never wins

Hold out for the morning time


So low that you don't wanna fight

Food on your plate but your hungry at night

The fire burning

But you feel so cold

Your numb inside

Tired but not alone


Hey oh oh

Your gonna shine


When you wake up sunny

But the engine won’t run

You get a little money

But you can’t have no fun

Fall asleep but the day isn’t through

Your rock bottom

You got nothing else to lose


Been fishin but you can’t get a bite

Can’t tell if it’s morning or night

When the days pass by

And the weeks are all gone

Sturdy up

Know that it won’t be long now


Hey oh oh

Your gonna shine


5. PEOPLE GO

I was chilling in the morning

So tired so sleepy don't wanna wake up

But the suns gonna rise, and so am I

Gonna fill my cup

Had to hit it, gotta get it

Running out the door

Getting on the road

To lift up my mood

I turn on the radio

Because it made me go


Zoo do do do do

The people go


The afternoon came crazy

I’m so lazy, gotta step outside

Take a deep deep breath

Get a little bit of air

Catch a little bit of sunshine


Well I never wanna be another number

Like the other gotta show how I shine

To cool my mood

I turn on the radio

Cause it makes me go


Zoo do do do do

The people go


As night time fell

Just like me I gotta rest my head

Can’t wait to get home, ease my bones and fall into bed


Then my friends gonna call me

Talking about a little party that’s going on down the road so

I throw on my clothes

Strap on my shoes

And turn up the radio


Zoo do do do do

The people go


6. BOSTON

Country so wide

Something you get lost in

Feel at home when we're coming back to Boston


So many faces

Met a lot of people

Seen a lot of beauty

But nothing ever equals


Home

Yes we go away

But we never stay


Home

We're always thirsty

we like our water dirty


Home


Went to California

They've got wicked style

Stopped in Colorado

Ripped it for awhile


Down through Carolina

And Florida too

After all those miles

I know what I'm gonna do

I’m coming home


Home

Yes we go away

But we never stay away from

Home

We’re always thirsty

We like our water dirty


Country so wide

Something you get lost in

Feel at home when we're coming back to Boston


So many faces

We Met a lot of people

Seen a lot of beauty

But nothing ever equals


Home

Yes we go away

But we never stay away from

Home

Home

We’re always thirsty

We like our water dirty


Yes we do,

We’re coming home


7. MY BABY

She come in like a summer breeze

Sweet little woman I found

Oh and she’s all I see

When everybody’s around

Never push or pull too slow

Oh the way that she looks at me

That’s the reason I know


She’s all mine

Ooooh

Ohhh ohhh

Night or day

Ooooh

There she stays


My baby like a Sweet Sweet melody

It’s so clear, a song that I never heard

My baby give me love so steadily

With no fear, song from the sweetest bird

My baby like a Cool Cool moment, just in time

There on the hardest day

My baby wouldn’t give me up

Or let me down, fill me in every way

My baby like ohhhh


She come in like a summer breeze

Cooling me down to my toe

She hit me like a sunny face

Hey and no body knows

8. SO MANY REASONS

I don’t want this feeling to go away

Oooo

So I hold on to

My fears, my hope, my highs and lows

For you


You give me so many reasons to love you

Well there ain’t nobody above you

So many reasons to love you

It’s true it’s true it’s true


So many reasons to love you

Well there ain’t nobody above you

So many reasons to love you

So many reasons to love you

It’s true it’s true it’s true


So many reasons to love you

Well there ain’t nobody above you

So many reasons to love you

It’s true it’s true it’s you


9. COOL DOWN

Feeling it crashing in

The moment that it hits

This feeling is a killer

Burning through your day

Making promises

That tomorrow will be better


Oooo sometimes you gotta cool down, cool down

Oh, sometimes you need to


Picking up picking up steam

Know your speed or the wheels fall off

Pressure now to can’t even sleep

The engine won’t burn with no gasoline


Workin everyday

Grinding for your pay

You got no explanation


Feel like it don’t fit

The moment that you’re in

It’s just the situation


Ooo sometime you need to cool down, cool down

Ooo sometimes you need to


Picking up picking up steam

Know your speed before the wheels fall off

Pressure now to can’t even sleep

The engine won’t burn with no gasoline



10. THE LADDER

Can’t help but feel sideways

Feeling like this since sunrise

So bring me all your bad days

Been feeling like there’s some strange times coming


Can't help but feel that way

Been feeling like this since last time

I’m bringing all my bad days

I know that there's some strange times coming


Climbing up the mountain

Trying to find purchase

Some days moving backwards

Others running forward

It's easy to get lost when

The light it fades to darkness

Remember you have power

And you could be a lighter

You could be a ladder

You could be a ladder

You could be a ladder


Can't help but feel sideways

Been tripping like this since sun shines

So bring me all your bad days

Been feeling like there's some strange times coming


Lost in my distractions

I know they mean nothing

Trying to find something

Deeper than the surface

Deep enough for purpose

Something I could climb with

That could be a ladder

You could be a ladder

You could be a ladder

You could be a ladder

You could be a ladder


Moving past my old days

Been feeling like that since sunrise

So bring my all your bad days

Been feeling like there’s some good times coming


Climbing up the mountain

Trying to find purchase

Some days moving backwards

Others running forward

It's easy to get lost when

The light it fades to darkness

Remember you have power

And you could be a lighter


Lost in my distractions

I know they mean nothing

Trying to find something

Deeper than the surface

Deep enough for purpose

Something I could climb with

That could be a ladder

You could be a lighter


11. SHAKING OFF THE WOLVES

I've been shaking off the wolves

I leave them peacefully behind

A heart that forgives, builds a mindset sublime


I've been looking to the north

Steady pace growing fast

Foundation made on love is a home built to last

Foundation made on love is a home built to last


Opening my mind to a family that learns

Gaining brothers and sisters through trust that we earn


Mission for the gold

But keeping my soul clean

Your heart is worth more than a paper colored green

Your heart is worth more than a paper colored green


You cannot fight it

But we keep on fighting

We got a system pulling

People keep on diving


Look at our fire

Cause you could start a riot

You could be the mission

Or you could be the target


Seeking out firelight

Yea we got a system file

Pick another number

You’re never gonna die


The cheaters with their eyes

The truth between the lies

Still I know

It’s just another sunrise


I've been shaking off the wolves

I leave them peacefully behind

A heart that forgives, builds a mindset sublime


I've been looking to the north

Steady paces moving fast

Foundation made on love is a home built to last

Foundation made on love is a home built to last

THE CORNERSTONE

1) Don’t Wanna Love You

You don’t make the rules

I am not your fool

Watch your tone when talking to me


in control

When the wind does blow

I’m steady as the willow tree

As the willow tree


When you treat me this way,

I don’t want to love you

And when you treat my this way

How could I respect you

When you treat me this way

I don’t want to love you,

Love you


Whoa oh oh oh oh


Sometimes you go too far

Lose hold of my heart,

That’s a dangerous place to be


You put me to the edge

Heights go to my head

You make it harder and harder to breath

Harder to breath


When you treat me this way,

I don’t want to love you

And when you treat my this way

How could I respect you

When you treat me this way

I don’t want to love you,

Love you


Whoa oh oh oh oh


2) Wind on my back

I’ve got the wind on my back

Sun on my shoulder’s

Don’t need no more map

To get where I’m going


To get where I’m going

got to get lost somehow

Lost somehow

To know how it’s flowing

You’ve got to ride it out

Ride it out


3) House of the stoic

In between fear and the violence

Down below tears of the blinded

Just above the speed of a heart beat

this is where you’ll find me


Just before the house of the stoic

In between what is real and where the poet live

The street where I ran as a young boy

The place where I learned how thick my blood was


This is where you’ll find me

Where you’ll find me


Surrounded by beats and the energy

The center of the words and the melody

The rise forever on the suns edge

Where the questions and the brave of the heart live


In between what I’m told and what I know

A mixture of some gold with a healthy soul

You never run, just fight love and see it through

But you’ve got to know when to cut the love loose


This is where you’ll find me

Where you’ll find me

Are you looking for me

4) Stop arresting Johnny

Could you stop arresting Jonny

No more soap dice stories

Blue lights come flashing in

Sirens come roaring


He’s caught up in a rat race

Hoping he can catch a break

And the money stacking it stacking it up

The pressure building up, that’s enough


Stop arresting Johnny

Stop arresting my friend


I got a message on my cell phone

It woke me up two in the morning

It said they found me and they picked me up

Could you help me dude I’m feeling stuck


Just more money that he’s got to spend

A deeper hole he’s falling in

But he never lets it get him down

No we’d never let a brother drown


Stop arresting Johnny

Stop arresting my friend


He never did nothing wrong

Nah, nothing too bad

He never did nothing wrong


Stop arresting Johnny

Stop arresting my friend

5) Freedom

Freedom,

Talking about your freedom

I could always get it in the city with the women because I'm screaming and I'm swimming I'm a shark in the water

Never had a worry cause the world was always spinning, and the colors always blending, painting pictures without profit

Mama always told me if you want it go and get it, always look for something different never settle for the normal

Never live for wages because birds weren't meant for cages, when your given to the calling open up and scream it out you need your

Freedom, talking about your freedom

I could never stop it started dreaming never lost it, got a fever and I love it, I've been feeling California

Sleeping in the morning I was dreaming in a moment, I was living in the storm and I was screaming like the thunder

Never gunna stop I keep with the flow

Never gunna pop I rock and then roll

Always keep it hot like wood to a stove

Give it like a shot ready set explode

Steady on the drop bring it back give me more

Gunna pick it up pick it up let's go

Gunna get the cat in the jam at the show

Never gunna move I'm grooving steady with the


Freedom, talking about your freedom


6) Sunshine

Sunshine

Love is like sunshine

I feel it on my skin

Sinking deeper In

Sunshine

love is like sunshine

I feel it on my heart

I felt it from the start


When I wake up in the morning with the sound of the birds

I’ve got a smile on my face

When I put on my shirt

I smile all day

I know what I’ve got

Do you know what I’m saying

Summertime blowing out of my brain

I’ve got the top rolled back

With the breeze in my face

Catching rays all day


The way that you make me feel is like a little


Sunshine

Love is like sunshine

I feel it on my skin

Sinking deeper In

Sunshine

love is like sunshine

I feel it on my heart

I felt it from the start


Hold up

Stand up

People get your hands up

Reaching to catch the feel

Bodies tingling with the feeling

It’s easy

Don’t even have to try it

All of it, now your in the vibe

Singing the song

Nothing is wrong

Feeling the beat with the bass in your feet

And I mixed it in and I mixed it in

And I mixed it with the reggae

Then you know

Whah whah you know


Sunshine

Love is like sunshine

I feel it on my skin

Sinking deeper In

Sunshine

love is like sunshine

I feel it on my heart

I felt it from the start


7) Rude girl

Daisies in your hair

Sunlight on our skin

Sand between the sheets

Listen to you breath

Listen to my heart beat

Heart beat


Day turns into night

Rock it steady baby fly

Hit the party or just kick it at home

Doesn't really matter cause were always In the zone


rude girl (rude)

Come on and kick it with me

Everything you want

Everything you need

Everything you are


You’re just rude girl

Come kick it with me

Every thing you want

Everything you need

Everything you are

Can all be


Butterflies got stuck inside my belly

Tried booze just to make myself steady

It didn’t help me and now I’ve got to fall

Deeper and deeper every time you call


Here we are and it’s here I want to stay

In the sun even though I’m in the rain

Summer, I never let it fade

Never let it fade


rude girl (rude)

Come on and kick it with me

Everything you want

Everything you need

Everything you are


You’re just rude girl

Come kick it with me

Every thing you want

Everything you need

Everything you are

Can all be


8) Sweet Love

She gimme the good love

Good for my health

Type of woman that would never give it to nobody else

She gimme the good love

And when I’m on the road

Don’t you know I’m thinking bout you

No I cannot wait to get home

Can’t wait to get home


She gimme the good love

Don’t need nothing else

Sink into a feeling something like the water moves to a well

She gimme the good love

And when I’m all alone

No need to worry baby

Your the one I need and I want

The one I need and I want


Oh baby I’ve been thinking about you woman

Everything that you say and do, I love it

Don’t worry that I’d be u true I wouldn’t, I couldn’t

Whoa no, I know what I’ve got, good lovin’

Love it like a drug, a drug that I wanted I’m buzzin

Don’t worry that I’d be untrue I wouldn’t, I couldn’t

9) Home

You feel like coming home

Feel like coming home from the dusty road

Type of woman that would lay me down right now fill up my soul

You are that fire to my frozen bones

I’ve got desires and I know that it shows


Every time I come home off this dusty road

She said she’s loves it how I Rock and I roll

Can’t believe it I’m always a rolling stone

She said she loves when we move fast and then slow


You feel like coming home


I’ve got 99 problems but my girls aint one

Cause all we’re doing is having some fucsnt believe it I’m always on the run

But I guess distance only thickens our blood

And I guess that thickness only deepens our love

It’s never work no it’s just growing like a good love should

My lord

What I do, to deserve the sunshine

In darkness now I know I’ll always have the light


Feel like coming home

You feel like coming home


10) Belly Full

We’ve got, food in our belly,

And Herb’s in the kitchen

Drinking, come kick it with me

People in the pool

We’ve got people coming over

gunna do it frequently


Positive vibration

Got it going

Reggae music feel it blowing through the breeze

Morning light gunna tell me when it’s over

Crimson, spelling through the trees


Why ya ya why ya ya oh

And if you ever wanna come,

You’ve got to be forever young

Why ya ya why ya ya oh

And if you cannot find your way

Mentality has grown astray

Why ya ya why ya ya oh

Sassy admin show their faces

Everybody gets to taste this

Why ya ya why ya ya oh

And you never want to leave

It’s never sour, ever sweet


11) Help Me Through

Until you have walked in my shoes

You would never know the reasons I choose

Melodies that free my mind

I hear them all the time


Said it’s a love that is true

The only one that has ever stayed

I saw her when I was just a youth

And I never have strayed


Oh people how they come and they go

In and out like water to a tide

My lover she’s more like the sun

Ever burning in my mind


Your like a wave, crashing to the shore

Taking all away but somehow bringing more.

Like a breeze

That comes in the summer

Running around my mind because you always make me wonder

Like a sound, that comes from afar

Never found but leaves me wanting more

Like a melody, that comes to me in the night


Because you always help me through

You always help me through


When I’m feeling so low

I know where I can go

When I’m feeling so low 


Because you always help me through

You always help me through


12) Thailand

Do not worry my love

Although unpredictable life is beautiful

You know it to be true

Yea yea, I’m gun a miss you


Life is nothing but paths Unchosen

You can’t choose till you get to the choices

I hope that I choose correctly

Hope that you won’t forget me


All we can do

All we can do

Wine in Northern California

All we can do

All we can do

Feel this, even when we’re gone



Promise nobody’s gunna game you

Girl you are built for running 

If this is goodbye the. Who can blame you

My love you’re simply stunning


You’ll be famous without doing nothing

We can wear our hats real low

Drinking coffee like we were hiding

Lean in and kiss me slow


All we can do

I’ll see you in Thailand

All we can do

Wine in Northern California

All we can do

love slow and long

All we can do

Feel this, even when we’re gone
