Track Name: Reach Up
Artist: Cale Sampson
Album: The Big Picture
Song: Reach Up

[Chorus]
( People ), it’s time to unite
Time to reach up and defend all our rights
( We know ), there’s so many people in pain
It’s time to reach up, time to create a change
( People ), it’s time that we speak
Time to reach up and demand world peace
( We know ), that we’ve all got to believe
We’ve got to reach up if we want to be free

[Verse One]
The top one percent of the population
Owns forty percent of the wealth
Over thirty thousand children die every day
In poverty from lack of health
This wealth gap keeps increasing between rich and poor
There’s more slavery now than ever before
Although democracy’s supposed to be equal
Government is controlled by a small group of people
Bankers and corporations are in charge
They finance presidents who then help them make laws
All the candidates are really pre-selected
So it doesn’t matter which party ends up elected
Central banks control the money supply
The crazy thing is that they’re all privatized
Every dollar that’s printed and ever exists
Is a loan that we need to pay back with interest
The fractional reserve system’s a scam
That keeps the whole nation in debt and that’s the plan
This is happening across the whole entire
World, it only leads to global empire
The U.S. uses the world bank and I.M.F.
To pay off politicians and put countries in debt
That debt’s so big, they can never repay
So they’re forced to sell all their resources as a trade
At the end of the day, it’s all nothing more than
Economic bribery and extortion
So more and more people are becoming desperate
Potential terrorists that can be arrested
And your home can be searched now without a warrant
You can be detained indefinitely and tortured
These laws are designed to destroy our liberties
So when we fight back it limits our abilities

[Chorus]
( People ), it’s time to unite
Time to reach up and defend all our rights
( We know ), there’s so many people in pain
It’s time to reach up, time to create a change
( People ), it’s time that we speak
Time to reach up and demand world peace
( We know ), that we’ve all got to believe
We’ve got to reach up if we want to be free

[Verse Two]
We live in a system based on profit
Regardless of what the environmental cost is
So in this society, monetary gain
Always comes first before people’s well being
Now think about the theory of supply and demand
Everything is worth more the less of it that’s on hand
If the goal’s to make money by any means
It makes sense to deny people of what they need
In reality, energy is abundant
There’s no need for anyone to die of hunger
Everyone on earth could be housed if we wanted
But technology that could help isn’t funded
Instead businesses that control market share
Purposely keep all our resources scarce
People are forced to fight, cheat or lie
Cuz’ there’s not enough money for us all to survive
When greed and corruption is rewarded
It means our whole value system is distorted
We need to think critically, change our perception
Almost everything we’ve been told is a deception
For centuries, things like race and religion
Have been used to keep us focused on division
We’ve been conditioned to see ourselves as different
From everything else and that’s the point were missing
Humans are trained to look at disparities
That are trivial compared to our similarities
And not just with people, were talking about
Completely detaching from nature itself
Our planet’s a system that’s interconnected
Everything we do, something else is affected
Without animals, elements or plants
We can’t survive on this earth, humans have no chance
So look at everything as an extension of you
Atomically were all the same it’s just a different world view
And the faster this realization spreads
The better off the world will be moving ahead

[Chorus x 2]
Track Name: Nothing To Prove
Artist: Cale Sampson
Album: The Big Picture
Song: Nothing to Prove

[Chorus]
Nothing to prove,
( I got ) Nothing to lose,
( if you ) Stepped in my shoes
( you would ) see what it’s like
( I got ) Nothing to prove,
( And there’s ) Nothing to lose,
( So I’ll ) Keep makin’ moves
And singing on this mic

[Verse One]
It’s time for you to think outside of the box
The music I make’s not your typical hip hop
I can do the punch line thing, but it’s easy for me
It’s boring, I’d rather say something that’s important
There’s a difference between me and other rappers
All you have to do is listen to the subject matter
Ain’t nobody else trying to enlighten your minds
Putting their life on the line, with what they’re writing in rhymes
Who’s speaking out, informing the average Joe
With the courage to go against the status quo
So don’t compare or try to categorize me
With other people who don’t deserve to be beside me
Cuz’ what I’m doing is way bigger than rap
Your head’s in the sand, if you can’t figure out that
In fact, it’s a whole new style I’m creating
I call it info-rap, people say it’s ground breaking

[Chorus]
Nothing to prove,
( I got ) Nothing to lose,
( if you ) Stepped in my shoes
( you would ) see what it’s like
( I got ) Nothing to prove,
( And there’s ) Nothing to lose,
( So I’ll ) Keep makin’ moves
And singing on this mic

[Verse Two]
When it comes to business, I’m through giving breaks
Since I focused on myself man, I’ve been doing great
And I’ve done it on my own, without a record label
No distribution, but still made a ton of sales
Managing myself, I’ve been selling out shows
Performing with acts that are internationally known
Holding my own, with any artist on stage
Across the globe, and I’ve got a growing fan base
Cuz’ I treat every concert as if it’s my last
Like it’s life or death, every time I’m spitting a rap
I’m kickin’ ass, everyone’s sick of the crap
That’s on the radio, we don’t wanna listen to that
And the industry never paid attention before
I won a best songwriter of the year award
So the taste of success, I’m loving it man
Cuz’ anyone that’s doubted me, now I’m rubbing it in
( I’ve got )

[Chorus]
Nothing to prove,
( I got ) Nothing to lose,
( if you ) Stepped in my shoes
( you would ) see what it’s like
( I got ) Nothing to prove,
( And there’s ) Nothing to lose,
( So I’ll ) Keep makin’ moves
And singing on this mic

[Verse Three]
If there’s no content, than it’s not impressive
To me, it’s less about the flow and more about the message
My goal’s to educate, and music’s the most effective
Medium, to be someone that the youth can connect with
The beat’s up tempo, catchy when you hear it
But I’m just really trying to make you listen to the lyrics
Cuz’ the state of the world now is unsettling
It keeps me up at night, while y’all are settled in
Off in la-la-land, guess ignorance is bliss
How are you contributing, or are you just oblivious
Who cares about money, I’ve never sold out
To become more popular and not help anyone else
That’s not what it’s about, and don’t forget
I’ve worked twice as hard as you, you better show respect
Plus I know when I’m old, just before my death
I’ll look myself in the mirror, and I’ll have no regrets
( Cuz’ I have )

[Chorus]
Nothing to prove,
( I got ) Nothing to lose,
( if you ) Stepped in my shoes
( you would ) see what it’s like
( I got ) Nothing to prove,
( And there’s ) Nothing to lose,
( So I’ll ) Keep makin’ moves
And singing on this mic
Track Name: The Truth Is
Artist: Cale Sampson
Album: The Big Picture
Song: The Truth Is

[Chorus]
The truth is that we need
To open up our eyes so that we start to see
All of the lies that we were told and we believed
Because the time has come to face reality
And work together for the sake of liberty
So that our future generation can be free
WE NEED TO WAKE UP
AND SEE THAT
THE TRUTH IS NOT
WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE

[Verse One]
Truth is, the Real reason for war is
Motivated by money and corporate interest
Rwanda didn’t have oil, that’s why
The world turned a blind eye during its genocide

Truth is, corporations can donate
An unlimited amount of money to a candidate
Democrats and Republicans are bought and paid
So Government does whatever corporations say
Truth is the President doesn’t run the country
The people in charge are those who control the money
So The Federal Reserve is really more powerful
Than the U.S. Government and they’re running the show
The truth is, That Goldman Sachs
Sold sub-prime mortgages they knew were bad
they also profited by betting they’d all fail
So they’d win either way and no one went to jail
Truth is, the financial crisis ain’t solved
It was a big ponzi scheme, an inside job
Where taxpayers bailed out the banks who caused
It in the first place and now, they’re still in charge
Truth is, money is created from debt
If all debt was repaid there’d be no money left
But loans that are made have interest attached
That doesn’t exist so we can’t pay it back
Truth is, our banking system’s a trap
That leads to bankruptcy and collapse
It’s why the States are fifty trillion in the hole
And this crisis is spreading all around the globe
Truth is, a crash is inevitable
Cuz’ our growing debt must be matched in the real world
Through the use of resources, so infinite growth
On a finite planet is impossible

[Chorus]
The truth is that we need
To open up our eyes so that we start to see
All of the lies that we were told and we believed
Because the time has come to face reality
And work together for the sake of liberty
So that our future generation can be free
WE NEED TO WAKE UP
AND SEE THAT
THE TRUTH IS NOT
WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE

[Verse Two]
Truth is, The C.I.A.
Has a history of smuggling drugs into the States
Their profits are then laundered through banks
In order to help them secretly operate
Cuz’ the truth is, they’ve been involved
In things that should make people appalled
Like mind control experiments on soldiers
To alter their behavior with drugs and hypnosis
Truth is, Nazi’s were the first to try
Putting fluoride into the nation’s water supply
To dumb people down and control what they think
And now it’s in almost all the water that we drink
Truth is, there’s a chemical company
Called Monsanto controlling the food we eat
By transforming everything genetically
And then forcing everyone to only use their seeds
Truth is, that the medical industry
Is big business with millions of employees
the last thing it wants is a cure for cancer
Cuz’ they’d lose trillions if there was ever an answer
Truth is, cures for cancer exist
Just look up Dr. Burzynski in Texas
Who’s been curing people with tumors for years
The F.D.A. and the government don’t want you to hear
Truth is, you can’t trust the TV News
It’s pre-filtered to distract and confuse
All the outlets are owned by only five companies
So It’s impossible to ever get news objectively
Cuz’ the truth is, people need to wake up
And expose how our whole system is corrupt
And if you think I’m wrong, go ahead try to stump me
Lets see you write a song as smart as this to debunk me

[Chorus]
The truth is that we need
To open up our eyes so that we start to see
All of the lies that we were told and we believed
Because the time has come to face reality
And work together for the sake of liberty
So that our future generation can be free
WE NEED TO WAKE UP
AND SEE THAT
THE TRUTH IS NOT
WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE
Track Name: It Feels Good
Artist: Cale Sampson
Album: The Big Picture
Song: It Feels Good

[Chorus]
It feels good to be where I’m at
I’ve worked so hard and everyone knows it
Now that I’m here, there’s no turning back
Even against odds, I’ll always go for it

[Verse One]
Ever since I first said testing one-two
Mic-microphone check, as a keen young dude
It sparked something inside, so I begun to
Write lyrics each night, ‘til my dream comes true
If you’ve been listening, you would see some do
Especially when you consider what I been done through
They said how could record labels ever sleep on you
You stand out in the crowd, just like a neon suit
I think the government has a refund due
From always taking our money, when they need some loot
Like bailing out crooked companies will lead one through
This economic hardship, I’d like to see some proof
I’ve had so many visions I’ve seen come true
When it comes to my music, nothing you see’s untrue
I’m undefeated like New England when the season’s through
And every goal that I set, I know can become true
( Cuz’ )

[Chorus x 2]
It feels good to be where I’m at
I’ve worked so hard and everyone knows it
Now that I’m here, there’s no turning back
Even against odds, I’ll always go for it

[Verse Two]
If you want to get the album go to Itunes
And download, then go to the mall and buy two
Nowadays I kind of feel like a tycoon
Who can be successful at anything I try doing
Had some amazing times with my crew
Try to imagine being flied to
The other side of the world and getting to rhyme to
Thousands of fans who stand behind you
It’s an unreal feeling that strikes you
Could easily cry from happiness inside you
Exactly what I imagined since Nine dude
Practicing rapping in front the mirror in my room
You understand why I’d be content if I died soon
Against all odds I’ve overcame and I rised through
There’s nothing anyone can say, I paid my dues
I’m basking in my glory now, eating Thai food
Always been humble, kind of guy who
You can walk up on the street say what’s up and hi to
But mind you, if I ever decide to
Do another album, it’ll be sicker than swine flu

[Chorus x 2]
It feels good to be where I’m at
I’ve worked so hard and everyone knows it
Now that I’m here, there’s no turning back
Even against odds, I’ll always go for it

[Verse Three]
The difference is Cale’s always rapped with a purpose
Most of these other cats get trapped in the circus
I’m extracting curses, spitting facts in my verses
Getting political, if the subject matter is urgent
News on television’s attacking our nervous
System, turning us to some passive observers
A war’s going on, with Iraqi insurgents
And North America’s losing all manufacturing workers
Sometimes when I’m rhyming, you’ll feel this magic occurrence
Of me describing a moment that’s actually happening perfect
Somehow every time, exactly the words fit
Cuz’ I see the big picture and were just scratching the surface
Leader of the new school, back at your service
Transforming large groups of people back to converters
Rapping since the third grade with everlasting endurance
And I can honestly say every last bit has been worth it
( Cuz’ )

[Chorus x2]
It feels good to be where I’m at
I’ve worked so hard and everyone knows it
Now that I’m here, there’s no turning back
Even against odds, I’ll always go for it
Track Name: Technology
Artist: Cale Sampson
Album: The Big Picture
Song: Technology

[Chorus x 2]
It’s about awareness, education
Spreading knowledge and information
To everyone through communication
So we understand what were facing

[Verse One]
What we think is true today
Will be updated tomorrow, the only constant is change
Human understanding is always emerging
And developing with the more that were learning
And the main factor behind
Almost every advancement that’s improved our lives
Is technology, derived from science
What’s deemed possible, we constantly defy it
From thinking that our planet was flat
To the sun revolving around the earth as fact
And believing the cause of illness were demons
To the wonders of modern medicine that were seeing
Think back to the electric light
To when the Wright brothers airplane first took flight
To penicillin, to the cellular phone
To internet access in millions of homes
Today, what we consider commonplace
Would have been unimaginable in ancient days
So one thing we can assume for sure
There will be things we can’t even fathom in the future
Technology doesn’t seem to slow
It can lead us on a path of continuous growth
And currently the tools that we have available
Could transform humanity in ways you couldn’t even know
Into a world that’s balanced and humane
People are free and the environment’s sustained
The only way this will happen is if we work
Together, for the benefit of everyone on this earth

[Chorus x 2]
It’s about awareness, education
Spreading knowledge and information
To everyone through communication
So we understand what were facing

[Verse Two]
Free market economist Adam Smith
Claimed prosperity came from self-interest
As the act of competition would provide
People with the motivation to survive
However, what he forgot to see
Is this type of system will always lead
To social stratification and abuse
Corruption and power in the hands of a few
It’s dangerous, this is our reality
And in society the dominant mentality
When it pays to be selfish and damage the planet
Ethics and honesty are a disadvantage
If a product is rare, the price will rise
Lower the supply, profits will be high
That’s why it’s beneficial for businesses to lie
To manipulate the value of the products they provide
So in order to make money, Oil companies
Limit their production deliberately
The last thing they want is alternative energies
That are cheap and could make their industry obsolete
And so the public has no clue
As to what our real possibilities include
With geothermal power, solar, wind and wave
There’s no need to ever burn fossil fuels again
There’s no reason why every car on the road
At the moment couldn’t be electrical
We actually do have total energy
Without the need for pollution by any means
And we also possess the technology
That could enable us to feed every single human being
And benefit all of humanity
But these developments are held back purposely
The only way this establishment will change
Is if we refuse to participate
And stop supporting a system that’s unequal
‘Til we transfer the power to the will of the people

[Chorus x 2]
It’s about awareness, education
Spreading knowledge and information
To everyone through communication
So we understand what were facing
Track Name: The Facts of War Part 2
Artist: Cale Sampson
Album: The Big Picture
Song: The Facts of War Part 2

[Verse One: Cale Sampson]
In a world dominated by capitalism
The fact is war’s not about nationalism
Or what television tells you to believe in
It ain’t about security, it’s not about freedom
It’s about conquering resources
Expanding an empire that’s corporate
So industrial profits remain hoarded
A few rich elite people are rewarded
These individuals don’t report
To the government cuz’ it’s a revolving door
Where laws and policies are basically forged
To benefit the rich, while the poor are ignored
And to understand this, is important
Out of war, a small group makes a fortune
Regardless of it’s inhumanity
It’s actually wanted by industry
Cuz’ it’s the most lucrative thing that can happen
And international bankers always cash in
Forcing countries to borrow more
And more money, just to support their wars
The bottom line is, more profit is made
The longer that a war can be sustained
They’re supposed to be long and go on and on
And believe it or not, they’re not meant to be won
Look at history, you’ll see events are staged
Within the government, than someone else is blamed
Public perception is manipulated
To support agendas that before we were against
This is all done through the mass media
Cuz’ people believe what TV feeds to us
There’s no real enemy in a war on terror
So what that means is it can go on forever

[Chorus]
( Martin Luther King )
Men do not easily assume the task
Of opposing their government’s policy
Especially in time of war

( John F. Kennedy )
I am asking your help
For the tremendous task
Of informing and alerting the American people

( Ron Paul )
What if war and preparation for war is a racket
What if the American people woke up and understood
That the official reasons for going to war
Are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda
In order to serve special interests

[Verse Two: Cale Sampson]
At the time that World War 2 began
Franklin Roosevelt was the U.S. President
And his family were bankers who wanted in the war
Cuz’ for them, nothing else could make them profit more
The plan was to provoke the Japanese
To fire the first shot and become the enemy
So Roosevelt did everything he could to spark anger
Supporting China, Japan’s enemy neighbor
And several days before Pearl Harbor was hit
The President was told of oncoming battleships
By Australian intelligence, but he ignored this
Resulting in the death of twenty-four hundred soldiers
Eighty percent of the public was against
Going to war, just before this event
Then one million men volunteered for action
This was no sneak attack, it was allowed to happen
And when the Vietnam War began
The President of the States was Lyndon Johnson
Again, the U.S. knew it could make a profit
If they had an excuse to enter the conflict
In Nineteen Sixty-Four they alleged
Vietnamese boats attacked two U.S. ships
This apparently occurred in the Gulf of Tonkin
It’s the reason why their military was called in
There’s one problem however
Secretary of Defense Robert Mcnamara
Spoke out years later, and stated
This attack never occurred in the first place, it
Was a mistake, it was a complete lie
Over three million people died
And this is not a conspiracy thing, they’re trying to hide
You can read it for yourself, it’s all declassified

[Chorus]
( George W. Bush )
Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists

( George W. Bush )
Of course were after Saddam Hussein, I mean uh Bin Laden

( George W. Bush )
You know one of the hardest parts of my job
Is to connect Iraq to the War on Terror

( Dick Cheney )
There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction

( Donald Rumsfeld )
We know where they are
They’re in the area around uh Tikrit and Baghdad

( George W. Bush )
The main reason we went into Iraq
At the time was we thought he had weapons of mass destruction
Turns out, he didn’t

( George W. Bush )
What did Iraq have to do with what

( Reporter )
The attack on the World Trade Centre

( George W. Bush )
Nothing

[Verse Three: Cale Sampson]
Did you know, in order to gain power
Hitler burned down his own parliament tower
Then he blamed terrorists for the attack
And within weeks passed the enabling act
This destroyed the German constitution
When it came to rights, people had to lose them
And support his program of war and tyranny
All deemed necessary for homeland security
Sounds like something else
It’s interesting how history repeats itself
Makes you wonder, if 9/11 may have been planned
To jumpstart wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
Terrorism’s not the threat
That were led to believe, it won’t cause our death
It’s just propaganda used to make you afraid
So the government can go to war and take our rights away
Dick Cheney the Vice President
Was also the CEO of Halliburton
And that’s the same company that got contracts
Worth billions of dollars to rebuild Iraq
This is why the Middle East was invaded
So they could steal the oil and dominate it
Establish permanent military bases
To be used against other oil bearing nations
In terms of profit, for the elite
See death and destruction’s a positive thing
And a global monopoly’s what they seek
Over the energy resources that we all need
It’s no different than the Greeks and Romans
The British, the French, everyone else before them
This is an empire, based on greed
And the majority of us still have no idea

[Chorus ( Outro )]

( George Carlin )
I’m talking about the real owners now, the real owners
The big wealthy business interests that control things
and make all the important decisions
Forget the politicians
Politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice
You don’t, You have no choice,
You have owners
They own everything
They own all the important land
They own and control the corporations
And they own all the big media companies
So they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear
They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying
To get what they want
Well we know what they want
They want more for themselves and less for everybody else
But I’ll tell you what they don’t want
They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking
They don’t want well informed, well educated people,
capable of critical thinking
They’re not interested in that
That doesn’t help them, that’s against their interest
That’s right

[Audience applauds]
Track Name: Evolve
Artist: Cale Sampson
Album: The Big Picture
Song: Evolve

[Chorus]
Changes are coming to our lives
We can’t avoid them even if we try
So pay attention, we need to realize
What’s going on if we’re going to survive
Were at a point in the history of time
Where we all have to put differences aside
And choose to either evolve or we could die
The choice is up to us all now to decide

[Verse One]
I’m like a grade twelve who’s trapped in grade two
Feeling like I’m a hundred steps ahead of these fools
They only talk goo-goo-ga-ga, eating baby food
About as smart as the square root of my I.Q.
Open your eyes, it’s like the whole world’s gone dumb
And thinks the answer to four plus four equals one
So when I’m like can’t you see the answer is eight
People stare at me, with a blank look on their face
And just laugh trying to make it seem like I’m the weirdo
Cuz’ their ability to think critically is zero
Just blindly accepting everything they’re told
By a system that’s designed just to keep us controlled
And the time has come now, to burst your bubbles
I don’t care anymore, if it gets me in trouble
When there’s people dying, denial’s no excuse
You shouldn’t turn a blind eye, once you know the truth
And when money, is the main reward
So we can buy material things others can’t afford
To feel better about our self worth with more
Our mentality is dysfunctional to the core
So Remember, every single dollar you gain
Comes from the expense of another human being
Suffering, somewhere else, and what’s unhealthy
Is because we don’t see them, we don’t feel guilty
To Selfish men who don’t give a damn
Show some empathy for your fellow woman and man
Wake up, grow up and get some courage
Cuz’ If you don’t, it’ll be your own kids who perish
The reality is, were on a sinking ship
Just like the titanic and the iceberg’s been hit
So while most people stand around in shock
I’m trying to build some lifeboats and start paddling off
(Because)

[Chorus]
Changes are coming to our lives
We can’t avoid them even if we try
So pay attention, we need to realize
What’s going on if we’re going to survive
Were at a point in the history of time
Where we all have to put differences aside
And choose to either evolve or we could die
The choice is up to us all now to decide

[Verse Two]
It’s like the population has become
Zombies hypnotized in a trance and numb
With no clue, a paradigm shift’s begun
It ain’t cool anymore to be stupid and dumb
Defining yourself off what you look like
Or your social status is not the meaning of life
Quit following the herd, like a flock of sheep
And stop being so concerned, about what other people think
Cuz’ it ain’t just my words that are scary to y’all
It’s the combination of intelligence with balls
While I’m doing this for real, you’re sitting on your couch
Don’t just follow me, you need to be a leader for yourself
What happened to being a man, standing proud
Now the world’s full of chickens and sell out cowards
And you know, our morality has become lost
When real heroes like Nikola Tesla are forgot
If you don’t believe your freedom is under attack
Look at the NDAA and the Patriot Act
There’s millions of people that are now in prison
Cuz’ the industry profits with the more that are in them
You probably don’t even know, that oil is used
In almost every single product that we consume
And we’re running out of it now rapidly
Were past the peak and with that comes catastrophe
We need to grow our own food, organically
Learn to the live off the land, start saving seeds
Prepare yourself mentally, stay ahead of the game
Because it’s better to be ready than a second too late
I’ll spell it out for you then connect the dots
There’s way too many people living under a rock
Listen I’m not doing this for any fortune or fame
I’m just trying to get the message out to you, before it’s too late
( Because )

[Chorus]
Changes are coming to our lives
We can’t avoid them even if we try
So pay attention, we need to realize
What’s going on if we’re going to survive
Were at a point in the history of time
Where we all have to put differences aside
And choose to either evolve or we could die
The choice is up to us all now to decide

Artist: Cale Sampson Feat. Lori Nuic
Album: The Big Picture
Song: Jamie’s Song

[Chorus: Lori Nuic]
Miracles come true
When you least expect them
One might happen to you
Don’t give up on love

[Verse One: Cale Sampson]
I broke up with a girl, were no longer together
I’m contemplating, quitting music forever
Used to think it was my destiny, writing these songs
Maybe I’ve just been lying to myself all along
People say I’m the sickest MC they’ve ever seen
But I’m taking too long to get my album released
It’s not cheap, that’s why I keep going into debt
Trying to follow my dreams, and now my girlfriend left
So I’m at my dad’s place, sleeping on the floor
Feeling depressed, the only place I can afford
I should just conform and be like more of my friends
Man I’m getting too old to be starting over again
Trying to reverse my luck, what can I tell ya
It’s like life’s raining on me and I got no umbrella
And I feel cornered, I’m against the ropes
My only choice is to fight through and have a little hope
I’ve been walking with my head down, practically blind
Missing opportunities that were passing me by
Once you lift your head up, a new world appears
That you couldn’t see before and everything becomes clear
If you stay strong through the darkness comes light
That’s what happened to me, I met the love of my life
When I wasn’t expecting, a miracle occurred
Her name is Jamie and this song is for her

[Chorus: Lori Nuic]
Miracles come true
When you least expect them
One might happen to you
Don’t give up on love

[Verse Two: Cale Sampson]
Now everything’s gotten better, I moved in with my girl
Life is great, feels like I’m on top of the world
Cuz’ the power of love defies obstacles
And it can make you believe anything is possible
And there’s nothing, we can’t achieve together
Like a team that just keeps getting stronger than ever
She’s down with the music, not consumed by wealth
And knows pursuing your dreams is what life is all about
So then I finally released my album
Couldn’t believe it, a sold out show was the outcome
Had to pinch myself to make sure it was true
Man it’s amazing what a positive attitude can do
That’s why I smile when I go to bed at night
Sometimes I can’t fall asleep, I feel great about my life
You can work towards your goals on your own and by yourself
But it’s more fulfilling when you can share them with someone else
I won’t forget driving that four wheeler
With Jamie on my back through the hills in Costa Rica
Or travelling to Paris, Lisbon, Venice
There’s many more to come, all our adventures are endless
Were meant for each other, like two soul mates
And the spark will still be there at the end of our days
Beauty’s only skin deep, so when our looks fade away
I’ll still be reading poems to her when I’m old and I’m gray
And I wrote this one here, to inspire all those
Who’s hearts have been broken, who are losing their hope
When you least expect it, a miracle can come true
Don’t ever give up on love, cuz’ this song is for you

[Chorus: Lori Nuic]
Miracles come true
When you least expect them
One might happen to you
Don’t give up on love

Song: Conscious Revolution

[Verse One - Cale Sampson]
Our entire universe is a giant organism
Just like a human being it’s alive and living
With awareness of itself, everything within it
Is made up of energy and that’s what consciousness is
So every single person, in existence
Are expressions of this conscious energy that are different
Limited to five senses, only able to perceive
A very narrow bandwidth of this reality
What you see in the mirror is not actually you
It’s an illusion of perception, that gets you confused
Cuz’ what appears to be solid and what atoms make
Is really ninety-nine point nine-nine empty space
Were vessels, consciousness uses as tools
To observe our free will and gather knowledge through
And I know this probably sounds esoteric to you
But quantum physics has proven that it’s actually true

[Chorus x 2 – Rupert Harvey]
We are Powerful,
with unlimited potential
When were in a state
Of love
( A Conscious Revolution )

[Verse Two – Cale Sampson]
The greatest discovery of planet earth
Is it has a consciousness, governed by the universe
And it has it’s own pulse, it’s own heartbeat
That it shares with all biological living things
By disseminating down through waves and frequencies
Which eventually converge in the brains of human beings
And now science has bridged the gap
That connects the physical and spiritual at last
Everyone has a surrounding field of energy
Our hearts generate electromagnetically
So the thoughts and emotions, we feel within
Shape the outer physical reality that were in
This information has been known for ages
And was commonly taught by the shamans and sages
Back in pre-historic ancient civilizations
By the Hopi, Apache and Cherokee natives
And now a new awareness has taken
Place as more and more people start to awaken
Consciousness is evolving, we need to embrace it
Stay centred in love, there’s nothing to be afraid of

[Chorus x 2 – Rupert Harvey]
We are Powerful,
with unlimited potential
When were in a state
Of love
( A Conscious Revolution )

[Verse Three – Cale Sampson]
Throughout our whole lives we’ve been made to believe
That were just little people who are powerless and weak
That were insignificant, in the higher scheme a things
But it’s a lie, the opposite is reality
So don’t believe, the false history we’ve been taught
It’s time to talk to our neighbours and turn the television off
Take responsibility for your actions and thoughts
And realize the true potential that you’ve got
Cuz once you understand the way that energy works
You’ll feel connected to each other and the earth
Then you’ll listen to your heart when it’s speaking to you
And start to do the right thing, in all that you do
Our collective consciousness has to decide
To be in a state of love and no longer comply
So were fully empowered, now step away from the fear
And start to lead by example, the revolution is here

[Chorus x 2 – Rupert Harvey]
We are Powerful,
with unlimited potential
When were in a state
Of love
( A Conscious Revolution )

[Chorus]
“Banks get bailed out ( we get sold out )” X 4
“The people united will never be defeated” X 8

[Verse One]
In Seventeen-seventy-five, the American
Revolutionary war began
Because King George the Third of England had banned
The independent interest-free currency system
That the colonies used and produced on their own
Forcing them to instead borrow money as loans
From the Central Bank of England, at interest
Which would immediately put their country into debt
Eight years later America won
Their freedom and independence from England
But their battle against the central bank system
And it’s corrupt nature had only just begun
Cuz’ by the early Nineteen-Hundreds, a few
Central banks had been created and removed
And at this time, the most dominant men
Were J.D. Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan
Paul Warburg and Baron Rothschild
Who colluded at a place called Jekyll island
After manufacturing a financial panic
That the public didn’t know had actually been planned as
The spark, they needed to initiate their plan
Of implementing another central bank yet again
And in Nineteen-Ten a meeting occurred
In secrecy between these rival bankers
This is where the Federal Reserve Act was written
By bankers and not by politicians
A cartel agreement to stop competition
And make money from nothing with the Government’s permission
A central banking bill was constructed
And fronted as keeping the public protected
But this couldn’t be further from the truth
Because private monopoly was at it’s very root
In Nineteen-Thirteen, Woodrow Wilson
Became president than he signed this bill in-to
Law for the bankers, as an exchange
For the financial support they gave to his campaign
This is when the government’s power ended
And control of their money supply was surrendered
To the Federal reserve, a central bank
Just like the founding fathers had fought to escape
Cuz’ for the last hundred years, and still currently
The Fed loans the government all its currency
With automatic interest attached to it all
So that ever paying off the debt is impossible
A privately owned agency that decides
How much dollars in circulation is supplied
As well as controlling the interest rates
Means it controls the whole U.S. economy’s fate
And today, the federal reserve still refuses
To send their budget for congress to review it
There’s almost no regulation or oversight
By government, so the Fed does whatever it likes
With the Country’s and it’s taxpayers money
The fact it’s never been audited just stuns me
Cuz’ the public, don’t even elect the chairmen
People like Ben Bernanke n’ Alan Greenspan
Who basically make all financial decisions
That dictate the state which we all have to live in
Cuz’ they’re at the top, not politicians
And were just the pawns in this central bank system

[Chorus]
“The people united will never be defeated” X 8
“Banks get bailed out ( we get sold out )” X 8

[Verse Two]
The global recession in Two thousand and eight
Doubled the national debt of the United States
And due to international financial markets
It cost the rest of the world, trillions of dollars
As millions lost their life savings and homes
Foreclosures and unemployment rose
While the C.E.O’s, who caused the crash
Walked away from it with their fortunes intact
Once wall street got bailed out and saved
They were supposed to use that money to create
New jobs, by lending it to small businessmen
So that an economic recovery could begin
Instead the big banks just kept all the cash
And used it to pay huge bonuses to their execs
Then used it, to take over smaller banks
And profited cuz’ there’s no one to compete against
In the U.S., banks are now bigger than ever
and more powerful due to fewer competitors
While the financial sector’s worked harder than before
After the crisis, to fight any reform
The banking lobbyists basically own
Congress and influence how everything is controlled
Even Barrack Obama’s largest campaign donor
Was Goldman Sachs who gave him a million dollars
With ten million from Wall Street combined
On his way to becoming President in oh nine
So no matter how eloquent his speeches were
He’s still beholden to these power brokers
That’s why after taking office, his staff
Was filled with former people from Goldman Sachs
And he named the same men as his advisors
Who were key players in causing the crisis
Such as Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner
Who both helped to create this financial nightmare
Now potential for conflicts of interest are large
Cuz’ the whole situation is still ripe for fraud
The CEO’s who scammed beyond belief
And should be going to jail are allowed to walk free
Cuz’ not a single one of those executives
Have been prosecuted or ever arrested
Instead, were still in their stranglehold
And this needs to change as soon as possible
Cuz’ the whole world is basically bankrupt now
And in debt to itself owing impossible amounts
The only way to stop this from destructing
Is by increasing real world production
Which has to grow, faster each day
To keep pace with all the debt that our world creates
But there’s not enough resources on the earth
To keep this going on forever, it’s not gonna work
That’s why Mathematically there’s a pending crash
And our entire money system’s on the verge of collapse
While the world at large still remains blind
To how the banking system is controlling our lives
Through never ending debt and there’s no way out
It’s important the public starts to figure this out
It’s the most important subject in fact
For people to understand and begin to look at
Cuz’ our whole way of life now, just may be doomed
Unless some of these problems are fixed very soon

[Chorus]
“Banks get bailed out ( we get sold out )” X 8
“The people united will never be defeated” X12
