One time
One world
Two times
One love
Three times
Rewind
'Cause I’m a dedicate this song to everyone of God's children

Come as you are
Come just like you be
It's the bumps and curves of our history
But no block in the road that we can't traverse
And no wounds from the past that can't be nursed

All hate gonna to dissipate from our fate
No check, together we got a checkmate
All hate gonna dissipate and fade away
To make room for a brand new day we got

We got one world 'til its time to fly
So it's one love 'til we say goodbye
We got one world its enough to share
‘Til we’re called home and we’re caught up in the air we got

One world
I'll look out for you, you look out for me
One world
Together we can be perfect harmony
One world
I'll look out for you, you look out for me
One world
And I’m a dedicate this song to everyone of God's children

One world oughta be more than enough
And if its not, is God looking in pure disgust?
Wondering what the dilly with the silly I see?
When I made each of these in the image of me
Everyday is a chance for a new stance
Like every song is the beginning of a new dance
And everyone of us was made to reflect the light
And glorify the most high so bright we got

You can come as you are
Love is yours
Love is ours
I am a witness
To sweet forgiveness
You will shine like a star
Burning bright where you are in our one world

. . .


[Verse 1:]
The dream is fading, now i'm staring at the door
I know its over cause me feet have hit the cold floor
Check my reflection, I aint feelin what I see
It's no mystery
Whatever happened to a passion I could live for
What became of the flame that made me feel more
And when did i forget that...

[Chorus:]
I was made to love you
I was made to find you
I was made just for you
Made to adore you
I was made to love
And be loved by you
You were here before me
You were wating on me
And you said you'd keep me
Never would you leave me
I was made to love
and be loved by you

[Verse 2:]
The dream's alive with my eyes opened wide
Back in the ring you've got me swinging for the grand prize
I feel the hate is spittin vapors on my dreams
But I still believe
I'm reachin out, reachin up, reachin over
I feel a breeze cover me called Jehova
And daddy I'm on my way
Cause I was made to love...

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Anything I would give up for you
Everything, I'd give it all away
[x3]

I was made to love you
I was made to adore you, made just for you
[x3]

. . .


I've been around the way
I've been around the block
I got the keys to the city if the gates are locked
And a freak like me ain't ‘bout to stop
I got a hand full of dreams and a heart full of God

Everywhere we go they wonder where we're from
Well its diverse city ya'll welcome to come
It sits high on a hill you can see it for days
And even if you can't you can hear our praise
We go ...

'Cause we're boomin' out the stereo system
This goes out to anyone listening
Boomin' out the stereo system
Here to rep the most high with this one
Boomin' out the stereo system
This goes out to anyone listening
Boomin' out the stereo system
'Cause we rock for sure in stereo

If you're looking to slide, come slide with us
And if you're looking for a ride, it's a big old bus
We got black folk, white folk and Middle East
Mexican, Filipino - Jesus Freaks
Got a Haitian Princess, an Aussie Mate
East Coast, Midwest to left side of the states
And when the bus rolls, it’s out the dirty south
Tennessee and we keepin' it good and loud we go

I got portable sounds to lift me up
Portable sounds to take me higher
Portable sounds to lift me up
So don't even try to get in my head

. . .


Tell me where its hurting
Are you burning?
Running just to catch your breath
And going nowhere
It's getting old when you feel like you got nothing left
Well it ain't over 'til it’s over
I told you since the day we met
So let me be the voice through all the noise
Whatever I gotta be
I'll be for you

Whatever you need from me
To see you through
Everyone of us has stumbled
Everybody's humbled
We hit the ground and our lives crumble

Whatever I gotta be
I'll be for you
I'm for you
If you never knew
If you never knew
I'm for you
You know it’s true

I know the feeling
I know it’s real when the drama's all in your face
You see a mountain
I hear a promise – it’s never more than we can take
Well it ain't over, 'til it's over
We can learn from our mistakes
So let me be the voice through all the noise

Everyone of us will fall
Have our backs against the wall
And everyone shares a need to be loved
You’ve always been for me
So I will be for you
That's just what it means to love

. . .


It’s been a long time coming
Since I saw your face
Since we held it down
Since we were in the chase
It was the road less traveled
The path less formed
A skinny trail
It was barely worn
But we kept on walkin’ and slippin’ and talkin’ and runnin’ and fallin’ and cryin’ and crawlin’
We were in the trenches
On top of the world
Young refugees but we were momma’s pearls
Where you been dog? Where you been?

I thought you fell off the face of the earth …

It’s been way too long and we’ve come to far
For you drop out my life like a falling star
Right off my radar
Not a sign or a trace
You know I had love for you that’s bigger than mistakes
Now Hope road is calling
Let’s pack you up and move
‘Cause real friends are willing to intrude
So I’m gonna push in cause I wanna love you well
Let the ghosts of your past rest

Open up the door
This is the first day of the rest of your life
What are you waiting for?
This is the first day of the rest of your life

Open up the door
To life …

Behold I stand at the door and knock
If anyone hears my voice and opens the door
I will come in …

. . .


Momma never said it would be like this
I never knew such bliss existed
Or maybe it’s just so indescribable
Love was liable to get her twisted
She never told me but if she tried I was a little too young it floated right by me
I never dreamed love so fulfilling it’s simply killing and over spilling on me
It goes on and on …

This ain’t no ordinary love
Gonna tell everyone up under the sun

I refuse to believe we’re a dying breed
Children of peace hope and harmony
Ordinary folks extraordinary love
Something from above
Something we fall short of
You can’t see with an untrained eye
But if you take a little time you are sure to find it
We complicate something so basic
But once you taste it you gonna chase it like me
It goes on and on …

A - yo here we go, open up the gates and let it flow …
Love’s gonna take us higher

This ain’t no ordinary love
It’s extraordinary love

. . .


Start it up
Turn it on
We can ride this storm
A grip of hope in our hands
For the coming dawn
Up to our necks in complexities
Causing us to pause
As we collect our thoughts

So don’t blink if you wanna come cross the border
Take a look a around or come test the water
We won’t stop till we see the morning
So welcome to the quiet before the storm hits
Turn on, turn on the ignition
Everybody
Come on, come on and turn on the ignition

Comatose
Half hearted
Room temperatures fine
Sleep walkin' no dream is even fillin’ our minds
Earth shakin’
We be quakin’ like a wake up bomb
This ain’t no trouble overseas
No Vietnam

Sleep walkin’
I’m sleep walkin’
Sleep walkin’
I’m still talkin’

Come spark the parts in me that all but died
Jump start my heart and wake the sleeper inside
Hold up the flag ‘cause its ride or die
Hold up the flag ‘cause its ride or die

. . .


[Tru Dog:]
Tru Dog's back
Player from another layer?
[tobyMac:]
Alright, I'm going to show how this thing works

[tobyMac:]
Tru D-O-G make it hot for me
Tru D-O-G make it hot...
[Tru Dog:]
Like this? Tru D-O-G that's who I am
With the sun in my eyes and the mic in my hand
I'm gonna rock this party like an old school jam
Tru D-O-G, that's what I got Pops
[tobyMac:]
Nice, Tru D-O-G what you got for me
Tru D-O-G what you got boy
Tru D-O-G make it hot for we
Tru D-O-G make it hot boy
[Tru Dog:]
I got to get this off my chest so like recess
And I like it the best when I'm bawling
Shock-calling, bouncing off the walls
[tobyMac:]
What you know about shock-calling man
Cause everybody gonna move when I rock the mic
[Tru Dog:]
Yo hold up dad
Don't you have 11 of the joints on this record?
[tobyMac:]

[Tru Dog:]
What's the name of this track anyway
[tobyMac:]
Tru Dog
[Tru Dog:]
Cause everybody gonna move when I rock the mic
I keep it lyrically smooth like I'm riding a bike
And everyonce in awhile just to see if they feel me
I'm gonna pop a wheelie!
I'm gonna pop a wheelie!
[tobyMac:]
Man what you talkin' about
You can't pop no wheelie
[Tru Dog:]
Yes I can
Ask momma
[tobyMac:]
Hold on, you said something about old school

Shake it, don't break it
It took your momma nine months to make it
[tobyMac:]
This songs getting out of control
[Tru Dog:]
But Dad

[tobyMac:]
hey, I heard that
busted
[Tru Dog:]
Oh snap

. . .


She blew everything to pieces
He’s there hanging on to Jesus
She broke everything about him down
He said he never saw it coming
Until the day she dropped the bomb
And she broke everything about him down

Sometimes there’s nothing left but to believe
And suddenly all of it’s behind you
And I’m here to remind you
That yesterday is gone so say goodbye
And suddenly the skies open above you
And someone really loves you
Now everything’s alive … everything’s alive

She’s there broken into pieces
But he swares he doesn’t really see it
When she says that all of it was so unfair
But Hope road is just around the corner
It’s one place there’s never been a foreigner
‘Cause God’s love makes everybody welcome there
Sometimes there’s nothing left but to believe

Sometimes it’s in an instant
Sometimes we wait for years
But it comes down to the moment when faith eclipses fear
Your wandering is over
The other side is real
You’ve broken through
Your mountain moved
And mercy is revealed
His mercy is revealed, yeah

Yesterday is long
Gone ….

And suddenly all of it’s behind you
And I’m here to remind you
That yesterday is gone so say goodbye
And finally the skies open around you
And love has truly found you
Now everything is alive
Everything’s alive … everything’s alive

Sometimes there’s nothing left but to believe

. . .


Why’s it always circumstantial?
Never any real potential
Obvious and so sequential
It always ends the same
Holding out with all that’s in me
Is it worth all this pretending?
A story with an ugly ending it’s never worth the pain

So right here and now I am all in

‘Cause I’m letting go of everything I am
And I’m holding on to everything You are
I’m letting go of everything I once was
I’m all in
I’m fallin’ into Your arms again

Can we just wait out the weather?
I could stay right here forever
Got to get myself together
Real life is on the way
Call it my foregone conclusion
I’ll always welcome Your intrusion
You’re the master of my choosing
I’m all Yours

This time I’m so for real
It’s time I sealed the deal
Shut down my lame appeals
I’m letting go
I’m letting go
I’ll throw caution to the sky
Kiss all my fears goodbye
This time its do or die
I’m letting go …

. . .


You got me feeling so fly
There ain't a day that goes by
A supernatural high
Oh my goodness - people I can't deny
You got me feeling so fly

Uh oh, here we go again
Talking ‘bout that thing that so genuine
Uh huh, gonna make it known
So a freak like me get his cover blown
Can't help but glorify my Adonai
Gotta testify
Uh oh, here we go again
Talking ‘bout His love, so genuine

This ain't no fire drill
It hits like Holyfield
Break out your freak appeal
You think you know the deal
I'm gonna show you what's for real

There ain't a day that goes by
That I’m not singing Your praise
There ain't a day that goes by
That I'm not lifting your name
A supernatural high
Your love is simply insane
You got me feeling so fly

So fly when it's You and I
And the way we hanging in the morning time
And it's so dope I can barely cope
When you make my joy go and overflow
I can't help but glorify my Adonai
It's so fly that it’s blowing minds
So fly that they can't deny

There ain't a day that goes by
That I'm not singing Your praise
There ain't a day that goes by
That I'm not completely amazed
A supernatural high
Your love is simply insane
You got me feeling so fly

Knock, knock
Who's there?
Well it’s me, TMac
Feeling fly as a kangol hat
Insecticides can’t steal this shine ‘cuz
The fly I feel is straight divine

. . .


I'm on Flight 92, stuck on this runway
Waiting for a storm to pass before we take
Off, I just wanna get home, Lord
I'm gettin' no signal on my cellular phone

I got my wife and my kids waitin' for their daddy
At the baggage claim, Lord, I miss my family
I just wanna get home, Lord
I'm gettin' no signal on my cellular phone

I just want to wake up, talk to the morning sun
Kiss my Mandy on the cheek, grab some breakfast and run
I love my family, Lord, bless my family
Please tell my family I'll be home soon

I love my kids, y'know they love their dad
And I'm with them no matter where they're at
So they know I love my family, Lord, bless my family
Please tell my family I'll be home soon

I'm on Flight 92, stuck on this runway
Waiting for a storm to pass before we take
Off, I just wanna get home, Lord
I'm gettin' no signal on my cellular phone

. . .


Father God, I am clay in your hands
Help me to stay that way through all life's demands
'Cause they chip and they nag and they pull at me
And every little thing I make up my mind to be

Like I'm gonna be a daddy whose in the mix
And I'm gonna be a husband who stays legit
And I pray that I'm an artist who rises above the road that is wide and filled with self love
Everything that I see draws me
Though its only in You that I can truly see that its a feast for the eyes - a low blow to purpose
And I'm a little kid at a three ring circus

I don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away let me hear the people say
I don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away let me hear the people say

The paparazzi flashes and that they think that it’s you
But they don’t know that who you are is not what you do
True, we get it twisted when we peak at the charts
Yo before we part from the start where’s your heart?
You’re a pimp, hustler?
Tell me what’s your title
America has no more stars now we call them idols
You sit idle
While we teach prosperity
The first thing to prosper should be inside of me
We’re free …
Not because of 22’s the a range
But Christ came in range we said yes now we changed
Not the same even though I made a fall
Since I got that call no more Saul now I’m Paul

How do I sense the tide that's rising?
De-sensitizing me from living in light of eternity
How do I sense the tide that's rising?
It's hypnotizing me from living in light of eternity
