The trick is my dear Get more than half of the people to hate and fear And then you see You will have corrupted democracy That’s the catch and the caveat They don’t tell you all about in civics class Keep the voters numb and dumb And tyrants will rule this kingdom come The Kingdom of Kindness Heaven on Earth End Profit Blindness See Love’s True Worth Get Rid of All Money Live Happy and Free We Don’t Need the Dollars To Get What We Need On your knees, pathetic fools We control the schools to control our rule Keeping you busy with memorization As we control the population Get a job to pay for the things you make To profit someone in whom you have no stake Hey rich man, what’s your secret Anything you lay your hands on you must keep it Get Rid of All Money Live Happy and Free We Don’t Need the Dollars To Get What We Need The Kingdom of Kindness Heaven on Earth End Profit Blindness See Love’s True Worth Don’t spend a dime unless you make a buck Keep your hands clean you’ll just stay stuck Even religion is in the game Collection plate pyramid scheme all the same It ain’t the Vatican’t it’s the Vatican What the Vatican does is exploit man With promises of eternal salvation Even though they can’t balance the equation Remove your blindfold and open your eyes Unplug your ears and listen When the kind and giving are the minority It’s time for a love cataclysm How can the few overthrow the many And save us from weakness There is just one hope if any A light in all the bleakness The Kingdom of Kindness Heaven on Earth End Profit Blindness See Love’s True Worth Get Rid of All Money Live Happy and Free We Don’t Need the Dollars To Get What We Need No More Many Losing So Few Can Win A New Way We’re Choosing That Knows Greed is a Sin Everyone Giving More Than They Take A True Way of Living For our Children’s Sake

Words and music by John Jordan lyrics Sometimes the truth
 Will hurt your feelings
 Don’t call it a lie
 Because you can’t be dealing
 With looking at yourself
 Honestly
 It may feel like hell
 But you really must see We can all be 
A little ugly 
It’s not how we look 
It’s how we’re seen 
It’s not what we say 
It’s how we’re heard 
That’s why you have to 
Watch your worlds Thoughtful, helpful inspiring 
Necessary and kind 
T.H.I.N.K. about the words you say 
That come out of your mind 
They should pass all these tests 
And they should ring true 
So when they do ring your alarm 
You will know what to do In each other all we see 
Are reflections of our selves 
We’re all just parallel universes 
All books on the bookshelves 
It’s the same story in every one 
Just told with different words 
You’re the hero of your own 
And the villain in other’s worlds Just atoms dancing side by side Some close and some are far Solid light that’s just slowed down Bodies made from stars Always moving, never still But really going nowhere We got space and time to kill Updating our software

Heed this child She is a blessing Loves this Earth We have been messing Pure of heart And true to her words She has started To change the world Soul afire Hair in braids Profit parasites Are afraid Still quite small But standing tall She’s got it all May she never fall Greta T Fights for me Greta T Bless you honey Greta the great I pray you’re not too late Greta the strong I know you’re not wrong Greta I believe you Bless what you do Greta we need you To speak the truth Greta is rising And it’s not surprising She’s not compromising She’s just inspiring Some call her a puppet Of interests vile Some believe She’s just a child Some think we should be Free to waste That the problem Is not the human race That the climate Has always changed And our mass consumption Does not rearrange What’s in our air What’s in our seas What’s in our land They do not believe 

Greta I believe you Bless what you do Greta we need you To speak the truth Greta is rising And it’s not surprising She’s not compromising She’s just inspiring Greta T Fights for me Greta T Bless you honey Greta the great I pray you’re not too late Greta the strong I know you’re not wrong Stand beside her, heed her call She’s trying so hard to save us all Let her voice be heard by billions Come on now you all civilians If you want a future clean Put your might behind this teen Putting our children’s future first Greta Thunberg saves the Earth

Autumn Rising Born are we in the water deep Inside our mother’s womb Without water to us keep We face a certain doom Water water everywhere The very stuff of life Falling to land from the air Without it there is strife Autumn, Autumn Don’t let us hit bottom Your words I sought them Take your shot hon Autumn, Autumn I really thought them Villains rotten Would be forgotten That of which we need the most Is being turned to poison By coalitions of greed so gross Devoid of heart’s sweet notion Packaging it up in plastic Profiting from thirst Spilling garbage oh so drastic These things and even worse Autumn, Autumn Overcome them Their wicked income Spoils the outcome Autumn, Autumn Many someones Have begun To protect your kingdom But in the north a heroine rises As soon as she could stand A message that should not surprise us We must protect this land Autumn Peltier: Light of Dawn May those who stand against you Wake up to a brand new morn And they come their sense to Nibi, Gizaagi’igo
Nibi, Gee-zaw-gay-i-go
 Water, we love you Gimiigwechiwenimigo
Gee-mee-gwe-chi-way-nay-mi-go
 We thank you Gizhawenimigo
Gee-zhaw-way-nay-mi-go We respect you

One More Try 04:12
Lord Have Mercy Baby Baby Baby Yeah There was a time not long ago When we said we thought we were inseparable We couldn’t get enough
Of the love that we shared What went wrong How can we Let it all slip way
Baby that’s the part that Just can’t be explained No nono If we can’t stop the rain from falling How in the world Can we stop this this love from going on Just one more try And I’ll make it all up to you Just one more kiss To prove that my loving is real I’d rather die Than spend my whole life without you baby Just one more try Take me back To the place That we first fell in love All eyes were shinning brighter Than the stars above All our dreams all our hopes
Cast away in the wind And baby that’s the part that Just can’t be explained If we can’t stop the rain from falling How in the world Can we stop this this love from going on Just one more try And I’ll make it all up to you Just one more kiss To prove that my loving is real I’d rather die Than spend my whole life without you baby Just one more try Oh Oh Baby I’m so lonely without you I said I’m sorry for the things that I did baby I promise you if you take me back I’ll be dedicated to you
Please, please Just one more try Just one more kiss I’d rather die Just one more try

Long Lost Brother and Far off Friends Long lost brother and far off friends Until the day we meet again Far off friends and long lost brother I say this from me and my mother You may live across this land Her son my brother in your hands You are always in our hearts Your love it is a work of art The day they sent you down from heaven You became my brother Kevin They told us that you had a syndrome And we could not take yo u home We were told your time was not long But you just kept on keeping on Defying all of the predictions Conquering your affliction with conviction The life you share is more than nice Your farm it is a paradise Bless your hospitality And the guardians you be Opening your arms and home Let no one find themselves alone Your bright light shines on and on Bless you Kevin, Mark, and Don We couldn’t spend much time together Then we went driving in bad weather Twisted steel as things went wrong And then our father he was gone Our lives on that road were changed Everything was rearranged Nothing would ever be the same That is life it is a game Long lost brother and far off friends Until the day we meet again Far off friends and long lost brother I say this from me and my mother You may live across this land Her son my brother in your hands You are always in our hearts Your love it is a work of art Mom and I had to recover And though she love you and you love her Our lives took us far away While back in the west you stayed We started over in Montreal She would write and we would call And so began the great divide As did flow our family tide The life you share is more than nice Your farm it is a paradise Bless your hospitality And the guardians you be Opening your arms and home Let no one find themselves alone Your bright light shines on and on Bless you Kevin, Mark, and Don Removed from you and dad’s family Rarely did I get to see Those branches of my family tree Those who shared their blood with me Until my world did fall apart And aunts and uncles opened their hearts Found me oh so down and wrecked And made sure that we’d reconnect Soon I was flying on a plane Into loving arms again They took me out into the Rockies So I could see you and it rocked me Overjoyed I was to learn You were with people of great concern Safe within the mountains high With the very best two guys Mark and Don I could go on and on Of how you are such angels Don and Mark Hear ye oh Hark! Your love has surely changed us Men of steel, hearts of fire Let no one deride you I speak the truth, I am no liar I stand right here beside you. Long lost brother and far off friends Until the day we meet again Far off friends and long lost brother I say this from me and my mother You may live across this land Her son my brother in your hands You are always in our hearts Your love it is a work of art The life you share is more than nice Your farm it is a paradise Bless your hospitality And the guardians you be Opening your arms and home Let no one find themselves alone Your bright light shines on and on Bless you Kevin, Mark, and Don

Making Money 03:36
Aways making money
 Just for other people
 That is how we roll 
That is just what we do 
Always making stacks 
For the ones above us 
No matter how much we make 
They're never gonna love us The wealth rises up as the shit falls down 
Some people think they should be wearing crowns
 You see it everywhere all over town
 It's the reason why I frown
 Ownership is a mere invention
 Created by the worst intention
 Why do you think there's so much possession
 Bipolar mania and depression
 We've created a society
 Where we pretend that we are free
 When instead people like you and me
 Pay for everything except to breathe 
The food you eat, the box you live in
 Everything bought and nothing given
 You may call it a cost of living
I call it totally unforgiving Always making bucks
 For the middlemen
 You just can't give a fuck 
Can I get an Amen?
 Always making coin 
To pay the parasites
 Soon I'll be destroying
 1948 fahrenheit One man sells your time for profit Then The Man takes his big cut off it
 You think you won but really you lost it
 You didn't realize what it really cost, it
 What's a government anyway 
Same corporation different day
 At least right now that's what I say 
Can't we find another way
 To get some equitable distribution
 There First Nations need a solution
 We must fix this institution
 Tear it all down and build some new shit
 We have the will do we have the power
 We need numbers to topple the towers
 Tell the politicians to hit the shower
 Meet me at the bar for Happy Hour Osmosis Unlimited Love Injection 
Gets right under your skin
 Don't wash your hands spread the infection
 Shake hands and give them the grin
 Humbert's our leader
 His vision is true
 So now my dear reader
 It's all up to you! Aways making money
 Just for other people
 That is how we roll
 That is just what we do 
Always making stacks 
For the ones above us
 No matter how much we make They're never gonna love us Always making bucks 
For the middlemen
 You just can't give a fuck
 Can I get an Amen? 
Always making coin
 To pay the parasites
 Soon I'll be destroying

Mercenary 03:56
You come around every day No matter what I try to say Knock on the door and walk right in See you put me in a spin Second guessing every word This game we play is so absurd I mean less to you than that I’m the mouse and you’re the cat Mercenary frenemy You will be the end of me Mercenary so called friend You are just my every end Mercenary nemesis Always lure me with a kiss Mercenary lover yes For me it’s love for you business Each time I do pick up the phone I end up feeling more alone Because my dear your company Sucks the life right out of me For each and every day with you I swear to you I do age two It’s not just my imagination You just give off radiation Mercenary nemesis Always lure me with a kiss Mercenary lover yes For me it’s love for you business Mercenary frenemy You will be the end of me Mercenary so called friend You are just my every end What am I getting For always forgetting How replaceable I am I am far from the only man When Will I know When it’s time For you to go

Be Who You Want Be who you want Just do your thing It don’t mean a thing If it ain’t got that swing You never chose What you were born to There is just nothing That you are sworn to If they call you a lady When you know you’re a man Don’t be afraid see Be whoever you can Be who are you are Be what you know Be what you need To get up and go Be who you want Defy expectations Only your soul Steers your operations Nothing at all Is written in stone Only you decide Just you alone Put you in suits When you want to wear dresses You know in your roots It’s not their businesses Only you decide It’s your fate to make You don’t have to answer For other’s mistakes Be who you want Let nobody steer you No matter they hate you No matter they fear you Let them laugh let them point Let them call you mad Don’t get out of joint Don’t ever be sad Hold your head high And let fly your flag Come on girls and guys We’re not punching bags We will defend To the bitter end Our right to subsist How we want to exist Be who you want Let no one deride you None of their taunts Can kill what’s inside you Be who you want It’s never too late You are the only Master of your fate Be who you want Be who you need You’re the only one Who can set yourself free Be who you want Be who you are You’re going far You are my star

Are You For Real? Do you see it coming On the horizon That’s the sunrise That’s the new day Every morning No matter what It always rises Rises up Celestial clockworks Heaven watches On every belt Another notch is Added on To the collection A new day dawns New reflections There’s a new day beyond that windowsill Make of it what you will Make it sweet or turn it sour You will taste each and every hour There is only the fate you make It’s only everything at stake It all starts with your attitude And all depends on your gratitude Are you thankful for the things you got Or crying over what you have not Do you value all you have Before you end up on that grey slab With no more tomorrows you awaiting No more days anticipating Make the most of the time you’re given Always move always be driven I know I know there are those times Other people committing crimes Against each other and against you But do you really know what to do When you been hit, when you been cheated When you been knocked down and defeated Beaten by men and institutions Challenging your whole constitution When it all just decides to go wrong Heed my words and sing this song Life is just test after test All you can do is your best Don’t give up and don’t surrender Be for real be no pretender Pick it right up get back in the game When it happens again just do the same Are you for real Or are you kidding Is this a game Or the real thing Are you an actor On a stage Are you just playing At acting your age

He wants me gone He wants me out All I can do Is cry and shout Shake my fist At the clouds Like an old man I’m allowed All for words I dared to write No matter that I am contrite I did not mean it The words were empty But he seen it And don’t wanna rent me Eviction blues Lace up my shoes Pack boxes and bags How my heart lags Goodbye house and Goodbye home Got to strike out On my own Eviction blues I pay my dues Turn in my key To the enemy Goodbye apartment Goodbye life Goodbye pain and Goodbye strife I suffer from A vile affliction That led me to A damned eviction Somedays I’m up But most I’m down That’s why he don’t want Me around Anymore, My time to run Now it’s all coming So undone I said I’m sorry Please forgive Can’t you please Live and let live Eviction woes It’s time to go Say farewell To my little cell Grab the cat And leave the flat Time to go to Someplace new Eviction struggles Problem doubles Who will accept me If you reject me That’s the catch Must start from scratch So uncouth Ain’t that the truth I’m on the stand With shaking hands Sweat running down my neck Can barely speak I feel so meek Oh I am a wreck Tell my story Glory and gory Just as long as it’s honest And have some hope On this slippery slope That justice will be promised Eviction blues I see the clues All around me They confound me Eviction jam I’m telling you man I think I know It’s time to go Leave behind My peace of mind To the unknown My cover blown A new day dawns It’s on, it’s on A new day rises With new surprises

Yin Yang Kid 04:06
The Yin Yang Kid Flipped his lid So the people hid Never guess what he did Put it all in balance With such nonchalance He saw a chance To use his valence That Yin Yang boy he Never toys, see He employs me As a destroyer That Yin Yang man Does whatever he can He takes a stand To balance the land Yin Yang brother He’s like no other Proud his mother And his long lost brother What do you say boss Do you want chaos Do you make the pay off To fix the playoffs Yin Yang dude Is a boy so rude His attitude Is never skewed He’s on the axis
Got super morphallaxis Don’t pay no taxes To governments fascist Yin Yang master Averts disaster He’s a plaster caster Zen broadcaster Yin Yang disciple So archetypal Believe the hype y’all He’s not liked by all Yin Yang friend, see Still making enemies Throughout the centuries In penitentiaries Yin Yang inmate They want to castrate Is this his fate Is it now too late

Pour me a shot Make it over ice Or make it neat Either is nice Pour me a drink One to console me Give me a drink Oh how you control me Pour me a shot Whiskey or rye Pour me a shot I want to die Don’t stop don’t stop Please pour me a shot You know that you got What others have not I’m back again Your old friend Another regular Sits at the bar Listen to my tales You pour the ale Just getting pissed With my therapist You listen to me Give peanuts for free Taking it in In this den of sin I need to tell you I got lies to sell you I’m not kidding you see Can’t get rid of me Pour me a shot Whiskey or rye Pour me a shot I want to die Pour me a drink One to console me Give me a drink Oh how you control me Pour me a shot Make it over ice Or make it neat Either is nice Don’t stop don’t stop Please pour me a shot You know that you got What the others have not I can relax here It is so lax here The girl of my dreams Will never appear here Just be myself Damn elf on a shelf Watching the scenes On the giant screens Now I must piss I’ll try not to miss A great undertaking My hands are shaking Whatever I’m back So cut me some slack Hit me with another My bartender brother Johnny Black 80 proof I look at the roof It’s got me speaking the truth I tell you I am feeling soothed Is that a bottle of vermouth Martinis for the ladies in the booth Hit a home run just like Babe Ruth On St. Laurent above Duluth Wait while I go get more cash Thinking that’s expensive ass I know energy is speed of light times mass I did pay attention in class I know you wanna put me out with the trash But there’s still some moisture in my glass Got no future only past My fate is sealed the die is cast Pour me a shot For last call Just one more That is all Pour me a drop It’s all I need Just one more And you are freed Pour me a shot Vodka or rum It’s all coming So undone Pour me a shot Pour salvation Give it all you got ‘Cause myself I’m hatin’

Shooting Galleries Let’s go to the temple to pray, it’s fun Put on your best clothes and load your gun Bring some money for the collection Keep one eye open while you’re reflecting It’s where we all gather as one But please do not forget your gun While the altar boys are us looting Somebody just may come in shooting Synagogue, mosque, cathedral, church All shooting galleries Now we’re found to be in a lurch No matter our salaries Between dawn and dusk there will be a showdown It’s not pretty it’s pretty low down Is the price of piety your life Yours your parents’ your kids’ your wife’s Close the door you better bar it We the people are we the targets Light the fire it’s it’s getting colder We the people are no soldiers Shooting galleries, fish in a barrel We are all the targets Let’s sing together our last carols Before we join the funeral market Bless the babies so they’ll go to heaven How many shots I counted seven How many in a magazine Forgive me quick so I die clean Confess it all as the bullets fly I didn’t come today to die My life is worth more than a pigeon At least according to my religion Is the assassin the Hand of God And his mysterious ways Did He give them an assenting nod So they could end my days I came to pray and to repent And to cleanse my spirit This is not an isolated event All my life I’ve feared it Synagogue, mosque, cathedral, church All shooting galleries Now we’re found to be in a lurch No matter our salaries Shooting galleries, fish in a barrel We are all the targets Let’s sing together our last carols Before we join the funeral market

Let me see some hands in the air in here You know we got it going on in here my dear Everybody comes from far and near Because this is where all of your worries disappear We gonna make you laugh until there’s tears In my space in the basement there’s always beer Something to eat and something to puff It’s not fancy but more than good enough Osmosis HQ is our headquarters Sometimes we even get reporters Trying to unlock all of our secrets We give em up and we got no regrets Ask me anything I’m an open book I wear many hats for my rude boy look They come one by one and they come in numbers Some to see me most to see Humbert My sofa likes to make you slumber Pretty soon you’ll be sawing lumber Come on genius come get dumber You know I live with the world’s smartest plumber Filling in all the gaps in your knowledge Blazed his way through high school and college He knows his stuff you must acknowledge Always climbing high and never falling Call up to Peter, Bob and Mona My lifelong fellow NDG homies Long time now I know them they know me Oh the things that they have shown me Bushi howling on the corner by Esposito Still sounds better than Despacito Even I sometimes want to howl me too When it’s been a long time since I last seen you Yes Alley Cat Gallery is my jam Had an idea and hatched a plan To make us known throughout the land To make a statement and take a stand Put some kitty cats on the main drag Even got a tiger on a Taiwanese flag Keeps the delinquents from spraying tags Even when the dogs come their tails do wag It’a my home, it’s the perfect base It’s headquarters, it’s our space Making jams so in your face Grooves that’ll put you right in your place For this I have so much gratitude Representing positive attitude Always in the moment in a good mood Who’s the lucky one? It is this dude

The Storm Rain and wind Fall and blow Harder faster On us below Cold and wet Is the storm A hell on earth But heaven born Safe behind Walls and a roof Hope they keep us Safe and soothed Will you shelter Here with me Keep my poor heart Company Hold me close and Hold me tight Until the dawning Of the light In the morning High and dry New day dawning For you and I Be my safety Be my cover Be my friend and Be my lover Be the one I Lie beside Don’t go away With the tide I’m your girl and You’re my fella Won’t you be my Big umbrella Cover me So I stay dry My hand holds you Up to the sky

Wish 02:58
Wish you were here Wish you were near Wish that you never Had disappeared Want you beside me Want you around I want to hear Your voice’s sweet sound At this time of year Your spirit is here Once I had lost you You left my sphere Far off you went Our time was spent I didn’t stop loving I did not relent Now that you’re gone And moved along There is a hole Where you belonged Oh won’t you come back Come back to me Oh how your smile I long to see No matter where I always care To love another I do not dare My heart is yours Come back through those doors My love for you Knows no borders Time is an arrow It flies straight ahead On the straight and narrow We must respect it There’s no turning back No turning around But it’s you that I lack What was lost can be found Wish you were here Wish you were near Wish that you never Had disappeared Want you beside me Want you around I want to hear Your voice’s sweet sound Now that you’re gone And moved along There is a hole Where you belonged Oh won’t you come back Come back to me Oh how your smile I long to see

In a quiet place all by myself Just me and my thoughts Cup of coffee book from the shelf It is not for nought Here I find my peace of mind Here the centre holds Only way I can unwind And soothe my troubled soul Silence the bells and lock the door Peace and quiet I want more I try not to buy what they sell In a quiet place all by myself In a quiet place just me alone With my thoughts of us For my sins I do atone And wait here for justice I know sometimes that I do wrong For I am only human Try as I may to get along Still am I consuming I am not taking any calls As daylight fades and nighttime falls You must take care of yourself I’m in a quiet place all by myself In my solitude you haunt me Dark memories of things I’ve done In my solitude you taunt me Reminiscing the tales I spun I sit here alone Ignoring the phone Waiting for daylight to rise Until the time I’ve forgiven my crimes And can look you in the eyes In a quiet place all by myself Just me and my thoughts Cup of coffee book from the shelf It is not for nought Here I find my peace of mind Here the centre holds Only way I can unwind And soothe my troubled soul

Lady Time 03:50
Lady Time Sweet Lady Time You’re the river that I flow in All of my life You I am knowing Sweet Lady Time Sweep me away You’re forever going Never do you stay Sweet Lady Time Is all we are perceiving She’s keeping us in line But is she being deceiving She promises a future That’s just the past again Why oh why can’t we Just live in the present Sweet Lady Time Across the universe Tick tock goes the clock Never in reverse Sweet Lady Time Never to be mine Always slipping by I tell you it’s a crime Sweet Lady Time When did she begin Does she have a middle Or an ending What was there before her And what will come next All I know is I don’t know I am truly perplexed The second hand sweeps round the clock The earth spins round the sun Sweet Lady Time keeps us wound up So that time is never done Synchronize all of the watches Divide the planet into zones Sweet Lady Time you bet she gotcha Until you are just bones Sweet Lady Time Listen to my rhyme Giving in to you Is nature’s paradigm Sweet Lady Time How you wind and grind Never in my grasp Are you leaving me behind
