Track Name: Swamp Cakes
Intertwined in the course of history, the plague of hate; it’s blistering,
The guise of care from a royal chair, a distant war caused by a wand’ring stare,
Years go by and we see change, but our vision is really just deranged,
Sending packages of worthless care while we see ourselves and we just stare.

The past repeats itself on a loop, a swamp cake soup,
We’ve got to go out and feed those with love,
Not a swamp cake soup.

The greatest point of all, overlooked, about this backwards society overcooked,
The problem isn’t made in a distant pool, but grown in the heart of a person like you,
You’re on the team, but not up to bat, “One person can’t change”, is that a fact?
Keep it up and you’ll have the effect of a pig walkin’ round, stinky, muddy and misled. Ya dig?

The past repeats itself on a loop, a swamp cake soup,
We’ve got to go out and feed those with love,
Not a swamp cake soup.
Track Name: The Fable of Leroy
We was jammin’ in the jungle,
When along came Leroy looking for his train.
We was having a groovin’ time,
But Leroy came along and gave us a fright.

I’m sorry about what they did.
I told ya you should have hid!
They locked you up as sure as the chain on your neck.

Leroy! Where did you go? The rest of us will never know…

Bouncin’ off walls you said, “Hey! Look at me!”
Leroy’ll have your fun, but you won’t stay free.
You tried to play, but they took you away.
You tried to stay, but they took you away.

Where did you go? We never will know, but your legacy will live on.
You’ll stay alive in our hearts in minds, even though you’re a long way gone.

Leroy! Where did you go? The rest of us will never know…

Come back Leroy!

Leroy! Where did you go? The rest of us will never know…
Track Name: I Will Wait
He will lay down his life to save the world,
But all it takes it one fair girl,
With the bat of her eyes he no longer finds,
He is where he used to be.

How can this be real? His Achilles heel
If he could have his way he’d spin and walk away,
But in the end you’ll hear him say.

I will wait cause it’s got to be true,
And there’s nothing in this dream if there’s no you.
I will wait please don’t push me away.
I’m a man not a boy don’t use me in this ploy to crush my heart.
My heart.

You would think after once the point would be made,
That a young man’s heart is a game to be played.
It would seem that men control all things,
But it’s his counterpart that plays his strings.

How can this be real? His Achilles heel
If he could have his way he’d spin and walk away,
But in the end you’ll hear him say.

I will wait cause it’s got to be true,
And there’s nothing in this dream if there’s no you.
I will wait please don’t push me away.
I’m a man not a boy don’t use me in this ploy to crush my heart.
My heart.

Oh time heals all, any fall.
But, one day you’ll see a way
Alone and happy and you’ll say

I won’t wait. No I won’t be fooled,
Cause my life will still live on if there’s no you.
I won’t wait I can’t wait for you.
There’s a light in my life not some half-sincere wife that fills me up.
That fills my heart.
Track Name: Soul Patrol
Painting pictures with profound grooves,
Raw jams of soul, how they move.
You can take the socks off my feet.
You can’t stop me from rocking to the beat

Let’s take time to let the music of passion
Marinate and stimulate in a positive fashion
Count your blessings, cleanse your soul
Keep an eye for the Soul Patrol

It’s all we got
These jams are hot

Oh, the sound of artless deeds
Sickens and thickens the dire need
Everybody needs to know
How this funk shui flows

It’s all we got
These jams are hot
Track Name: Funktura
Gettin' down,
On the res ride.
And I feel you getting closer all the time.
Can you feel on the res ride?
And I know you're getting closer all the time, yeah.

When you feel it comin' on,
And you know it's gotta be strong,
And everyday I come along.
It's a feeling that you feel,
When everything else is gone.
You take what you take
And you know that it's what you want.
Track Name: Schoolyard Funk
Shouting and yelling
You are always telling me what to do
And how it ought to be done
These rules and regulations ain’t so fun
A need to get away
There’s music to be played

Head up, and back straight
Detention for being late
All I wanna do is groove
These hard desks won’t even let me move
Ooohoo

Schools out and the bell has chimed
I just want to get funky to me soulful rhymes
You make me read write and calculate
I just want to get down for heaven’s sake

F minus, I cry these gray walls ain’t fly
They don’t get the I’m sick of these meaningless tricks
Itching to get grooving after school

Just dismiss me, It’s easy
Track Name: The Only One
Well I’ve heard of love stories,
And I know this ain’t one of them.
Girl without you, I can’t feel complete.
You’re all I ever want.

To touch you and to hold you and to kiss you so sweetly.
And I’ll cherish every moment and I’ll love you completely.

You’re the only one.

And baby I don’t ever want you to leave from my side.
Cause baby

You and me meant to be I can’t think
Without you.

When I’m with you nothing matters
When I have you by my side.
All I need is you.

To touch you and to hold you and to kiss you so sweetly.
And I’ll honor and adore you and I’ll love you completely.

You’re the only one.

And baby I just need to tell you
My only love is you.

To touch you and to hold you and to kiss you so sweetly.
And I’ll honor and adore you and I’ll love you completely.

You’re the only one for me.

You’re the only one I could ever want
You’re the only one I could ever need
You’re the only one I could ever want
You’re the only one for me.

You’re the only one for me.
Track Name: Can't Stop It
Night lights and city scapes,
Broken alleys and smog ridden waves.

I’ll steal, but I won’t rock it,
Don’t move. You can’t stop it.

You can’t stop it.
Track Name: It's Where It's At
It’s Where It’s At
Don’t touch unless you know it’s free.
Gotta sit, stand, ponder it, ‘til you start to see.
Oh, no! The night will have its day
“Watch out for the state of the art”
She breathed in to say.

Where is the city? In front or back?
Walk down the line sir, it’s where it’s at.

Don’t move until you feel the beat.
The sky is high and that’s no lie, can’t you smell the heat?
Oh, no! I was not talking to you.
Take a seat our own three-peat of munching on a groove.

Where is the city? In front or back?
Walk down the line sir, it’s where it’s at.

Don’t touch unless you know it’s free.
Gotta sit, stand, ponder it, until you start to see.
Oh, no! The night will have its day
“Watch out for the state of the art”
She breathed in to say.

Where is the city? In front or back?
Walk down the line sir, it’s where it’s at.
Track Name: Groovioli
I'm gon' make it,
I'm gon' do it right,
Make you understand,
That sometimes we like to indulge.

I am the one to forget you.
I am the one to be fair.
And if you think it's not fair to be free,
Maybe you should just take what you gave.

I'm gonna get it,
I'm gon' do it right,
Make you understand,
Why I don't need nothing for the best.

I am the one to forget you.
I am the one to be fair.
And if you think it's not fair to be free,
Maybe you should just take what you gave.
