    150 Million (-1)

    Verse 1:

    Take it slow

    Come dance with me

    All Around the world until we find

    Our missing piece

    Verse 2

    Let it flow

    Don't hold your tears

    Just abandon the worries of this moment in time

    Cast off your fears 

     

    Chorus:  

    I've got a hundred fifty million reasons why I need you by my side

    And if we work together, Baby, We can change the world one life at a time

    Somehow I feel my life has just begun

    A hundred fifty million minus one

    Hey, hey

     

    Verse 3:

    Lost and found

    We are all the same

    Put yourself on the path to where you know you should go

    Let the current take

     

    Verse 4:

    How can we say

    That we love the poor

    If we don't even know a single name out of all

    The broken in our world

    I Pledge Allegiance

    V1

    Oh the flag of your Babylon

    Stirs an anthem within

    Sing for God and for country, son

    Raise the banner again

     

    V2

    Soldier boy standing tall and proud

    On the bones of the lost

    If your god told you strike them down

    Who could question the cost

     

    Prechorus

    But hey,

    What if that’s not your father’s voice

    I said hey

    What if that was not his call

    Hey

    What you’ve done to the least of these my brothers

    You have done to us all

     

    Chorus

    I pledge allegiance to the cause of the broken

    Stand at attention to the words never spoken

    I will be faithful to the dying child I have never seen

    I pledge allegiance to the shattered heart of my enemy

     

    V3

    If you live by the edge of the knife

    You will die by the same

    Listen closely to what you’ve heard

    Rid your heart of the hate

    Open Season

    Verse 1: 

    I thought I had it all worked out

    Thought I had a category

    For the brokenness I found

    In your ever-darker story

     

    I thought that I had seen

    The worst that you could offer

    But never had I dreamed

    That you would burn me on the altar

     

    Chorus:

    You took your aim

    You chose your treason

    Yes, I swear it's open season

    On my heart, on my faith

    Hey, hey

     

    Verse 2: 

    I tried to cover up the taste

    Of the bitter cup you poured me

    I sought to wash it all away

    turn darkness into morning

     

    You should have been a saint

    But you chose to play the sinner

    I'm running low on grace

    Too late to reconsider

     

    Chorus: 

    You took your aim

    You chose your treason

    Yes, I swear it's open season

    On my heart, on my faith

    Hey, hey

     

    You took your aim

    You chose your treason

    Yes, I swear it's open season

    On my heart, on my faith

    Hey, hey

    The Activist (feat. Lindsey Saunders)

    Verse 1: 

    Just look around, think about what you’re gonna shout about

    Before you can bring it home

    It’s gotta be catastrophe before you’re gonna wake the beast

    The media is gone to sleep on its own

     

    Prechorus:

    I Gonna be there a standing oh so high

    I Gonna be the lightning in the sky

     

    Verse 2

    Take a long hard look at this, activist, raise a fist

    ‘til they sense your defiance

    Don’t let it go, not a soul can control any more of your mind

    Til you sign up in for blindness

     

    Prechorus:

    I Gonna be there a standing oh so high

    I Gonna be the lightning in the sky  

     

    Chorus: 

    Oh it’s alright

    Just let it burn

    Don’t pull away

    Until you see the tables turn

    Oh it’s ok

    Just let their voices ring

    Until you hear the children sing 

     

    Verse 3 

    Oh I know you gotta choose what to view on the news

    Turn it off whenever you see their suff’ring

    Insulate, propagate a sense of fate, would you say

    That they got exactly what they had coming

     

    Prechorus:

    I Gonna be there a standing oh so high

    I Gonna be the lightning in the sky

    Break It Down

    Verse 1

    The earth is groaning underneath the weight of curses wrought

    The ground it begs for justice for destructions you have brought

    How long will I attempt to woo your cold and calloused heart

    I’ve got a love so deep you could never dig a well down to it

     

    Chorus: 

    Break it down

    Tear this wall down from the sky

    Break it down

    Our love must break it down

     

    Interlude: 

    Verse 2

    Ascribe to fate the blame for all the darkness in your soul

    You rape and pillage till the village is a gaping hole

    You’re drivin hard the war machine until your belly’s full

    You’ll never get your fill til the bloody end of this perdition

     

    Chorus

    Break it down

    Tear this wall down from the sky

    Break it down

    Our love must break it down

     

    Bridge

    Where is the bravery

    Gone so far away

    Why live in slavery

    Behind this wall of greed, of greed

     

    Chorus: 

    Break it down

    Tear this wall down from the sky

    Break it down

    Our love must break it down
