Track Name: Golden Sparrow
On the back of. A golden sparrow 
High above mt Kilimanjaro 
I learned how to fly
How to close my eyes and breathe out loud (x2)

You're the dust in the sun 
I'm the sun in your eyes 
I'm your only light

Your cup of beans 
and your bag of rice 
Will never be 
My real price 

Way down here for 7 long years
7 into 8 
7 into 8
I turn next year 

I know someday
some day
I will be
Someone everyone 
will look up to And see (x2) 

On the back of A golden sparrow 
High above mt Kilimanjaro 
I learned how to fly
How to close my eyes and breathe out loud 
Track Name: Power Justice and Love
You’re looking good, changing the game
Going strong against the grain
I can tell by the way you move
You’re a soldier of love and you see right through

That mean old monster of conquer and divide
racist crushers of cultures, nature, languages and life
Wild seed bring sweet surprises
All of us wins when one of us rises

I feel the power where you are
I remember who we are

We're in the clearing, in the break of dawn
In the prison pipeline and the ancestor song
We face each other with our deepest love
And our courage to address what can never be undone

‘Cause we got the power where we are
When we remember who we are

I wanna power the wind
Power the sun
Harness the hatred
Turn it to justice and love

Power the wind
Power the sun
Harness the greed
Turn it to justice and love

I'm looking worldwide and I can see
hope for the future shining back at me
greening rooftops, defending our water
staying woke seeing ourselves in each other

We got the power where we are
we remember we're made of stars

Power the wind
power the sun
Harness the hatred and fear
Turn it to justice and love

Power the wind
Power the sun
Harness the greed
Turn it to justice and love

That mean old monster of conquer and divide
Won't last for long in our circle of light
These old structures will crumble and fall
And when they do you know who we call

On each other - One another

That's why we say their names forever
‘Cause nothing new to the matter
To the worldwide matter
Black lives matter

Power the wind
power the sun
Harness the hatred and fear and
Turn it to justice and love
Justice and love
Justice and love
