Track Name: Leaders
Where are the leaders?
Where are the leaders of today?
Oh god where are they?
Where are the leaders?
Where are the leaders of today?
Seems its only power they seek as they look down on us they call the meek
How can the poor have a choice when money has the loudest voice?
Seems our democracy is lost when money becomes the boss
Makes me want to say
Where are the leaders?
Where are the leaders of today?
Oh god where are they?
Where are the leaders?
Leaders of today

Party for the people not the corporation
Cause its money runnig this nation
They toast with their champagne to their million dollar campaign
While our democracy is lost and money becomes the boss
A party for the people not the corporation
Party for the people not the corporation
Party for the people not the corporation cause its money running this nation
Well all your political schemes and your economic dreams but none of them ever seem to think you never never never never think think about the people
You gotta think about the people
You start thinking bout people
You better think about the people

We are the leaders
We are the leaders of today
That’s you and me oh people we are we
We are the leaders
We are the leaders of today
Everybody We are the leaders, we are the leaders of today

Band we people
Everybody and say we are the leaders
We are the leaders of today
We are the leaders, leaders of today
Track Name: Martin Luther King
Ambassadors of peace stand and be counted
For it’s later than you think – the battle is hardy

Martin Luther King was a very great man
Whose words in these days need we understand
Said not to judge another by the color of their skin
But by the content of their character

Words from the prophets
People listen but don’t hear
They continue to live in fortresses made of fear
Walls of segregation have now been brought down
So why in the tears of history must we down?
When his history isn’t our story anymore

People of America, know who you are
People of Asia, know who you are
European people, know who you are
People of Russia, know who you are
People from Africa, know who you are
North America, South America, know who you are
Know who you are
People of the World, know who you are

Martin Luther King was a very great man
Whose words in these days need we understand
Said not to judge another by the color of their skin
But by the content of their character

Words from the prophets people listen but don’t hear
They continue to live in fortresses made of fear

Walls of segregation have not been brought down
So why in the tears of history must we drown?
When his story isn’t our story anymore
Track Name: Proud Line
All these hardships that I’ve faced from the start
I use as a stone to sharpen the blade of my heart
And with this blade I will cut myself free
From the nets that would bind and keep me
Cause from the right path they don’t ever want me to find
But I won’t be mislead by any false sign – no

I gotta walk the proud line my friend
Gotta walk proud line.
Gotta walk proud line my friends
Gotta walk proud line
Gotta walk proud line my friends
Gotta walk the proud line

Time must you be my enemy?
Doing these things you do to me
Your seconds seem to be the streams
Which carry away my dreams
Time must you be my enemy?

Oh my pain is a seed of knowledge I must sow
With blood and sweat into wisdom it will grow
Ghost of insecurity
You’ve bent me enough now let me be
Cause can’t keep me down
Through my struggles I only gain the strength and wisdom
To see me through your storms of lightning thunder and rain
Gotta walk proud line my friends
Gotta walk proud line
Gotta walk proud line my friends
Gotta walk proud line

Time must ya be my enemy?
Doing these things you do to me
Your seconds seem to be the streams which carry away my dreams
Time must you be my enemy?
Track Name: Knowledge Devoid of Wisdom
Knowledge devoid of wisdom
Isn’t any kind of knowledge we need at all

We don’t need knowledge devoid of wisdom
Don’t even give us knowledge devoid of wisdom
Teach us no longer knowledge devoid of wisdom
We don’t need it knowledge devoid of wisdom
Cause knowledge devoid of wisdom isn’t any kind of knowledge we need at all

Have we forgotten how to live?
Read it in the paper
See it in the news
Have we forgotten how to live?
Too many people shooting
Have we forgotten how to live?
Mother kills her own children
Have we forgotten how to live?
Read it in the newspaper
See it in the new
Have we forgotten how to live?

Children get your wisdom
Children get your wisdom
You may not find it in school
Don’t let them make you the fool
Children get your wisdom
Children get your wisdom
Even the food is hungry
Deadly rays come from the sun
Children
Children get your wisdom

Children get your wisdom
Be fooled not by the wolf in sheep’s clothing
Follow not the ways of the empire
Children get your wisdom
Track Name: Light of Mine
For how long shall they call these the last days?
Fulfilling the very prophecies they preach
Those were our grandmothers you burnt at the stake
Calling their midwifery witchery

No longer will I drink your water dran from well of sorrow
Oh God don’t feed the bread of your angry today and sad tomorrow
I won’t curse this darkness anymore
That’s what I was given this here light for

This little light of mine
Said I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
let it shine all the time

Sailing on your ships across a sea of tears
Wanting to conquer your last frontier our mentality
I won’t drink water drawn from wells of sorrow
Nor will I eat your bread of angry today and sad tomorrow
I won’t curse this darkness anymore
Oh god what do I do it for

I said this little light of mine said I’m gonna let it shine
Track Name: Everyday
Every day is a new day
Got another chance to change your ways

If breath is that of life
Then word's that of breath
Why do I speak these things
That starve my soul to death?
Can't seem to escape
From this comes around goes around game
Lookin for someone to blame
But it always comes out the same
For this trail of tears
I'm surrounded by mirrors
I'm my own prisoner
And I got to get myself free

Every day is a new day
You got a chance to change your ways
Every day is a new day
Got another chance to change your ways
Every day is a new day
Got another chance to change your ways

I am the owner of these dark clouds
That bring their strife upon my life
I'm the axe forgot
But the fallen tree did not

Now I'm lookin for a good state of mind
To be my key
And nobody else but me
Gonna lift me from this captivity
As the dawn shines on a new day
So may the same light be shed on a new way

'Cause every day is a new day
You've got a chance to change your ways
Every day is a new day
Got another chance to change your ways
Every day is a new day
Got another chance to change your ways
Track Name: Panjea
Just the other day
Only just the other day
I said, just the other day
A baby boy was born
They named him Panjea
Said they want a better world
Movement of the people
To change the ways
Where there's the will
Lord knows there's a way
Oh, no, no Panjea
Ohnayway
Oh, no, no Panjea
Ohnayway

Just the other day
A million babies were born
They need a place to live
Said they want a better world
Movement of the people
To change the ways
Where there's a will
Lord knows there's a way

Whoa no no Panjea
Whoanayway
Whoa no no Panjea
Whoanayway

People of the world
Do you know who you are?
Look to yourself
The truth ain't very far
Track Name: Healed in Africa
Over the oceans
Across the seas
Over the oceans
Across the seas
I traveled to distant lands
I was brought to my knees
And I was
Healed by holy hands
So I could be me
And I was
Healed by holy hands
So I could be we
And I was
Healed by holy hands
So I could be me
And I was
Healed by holy hands
So I could be me
If my words
Only had the wings enough
If they only had the wings enough
If my words
Only had the wings enough
To carry you there
Ayayayayayay
Ayayayayayay

Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa

Over the oceans
Across the seas
I traveled to a distant land
They brought me to my knees
And I was
Healed by holy hands
So I could be me
And I was
Healed by holy hands
So I could be we
And I was
Healed by holy hands
So I could be me
And I was
Healed by holy hands
So I could be me
If my words
Only had the wings enough
If they only had the wings enough
If my words
Only had the wings enough
To carry you there
Ayay ayay ayay
Ayay ayay ayay

Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa
Healed in Africa...
Track Name: Mandela
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are
Powerful beyond measure
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be?
Brilliant, gorgeous and fabulous
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God
Your playing small does not serve the world, no
Oh, these are the words of Mandela
Mandela, Mandela, Mandela
Mighty baba, Mandela
Mighty baba, Mandela
Mighty baba, Mandela
Mighty baba, Mandela
Mighty baba

There's nothing enlightened about people
Shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you
We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us
It is not just in some of us
It is in everyone
Everyone
Mandela, Mandela, these are his words
Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela,
Mandela Mandela
Mighty baba, Mandela
Mighty baba, Mandela

As we let our light shine
We unconsciously give people
Permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear
Our presence automatically liberates others
It liberates others
And these are the words of Mandela….
