Hurt (Louis Toliver Jr-USA/Austin, Texas)

I've never been able to figure out why hurt exists or why someone would find pleasure in it. Pain isn't necessary.

I hurt, but I don't know why I hurt sometimes. I'm sure you hurt too. We all do. It's a cruel cruel reality. 

I've never been able to grasp the reality of hurt's uncertainty or why anyone would think there is hurt's certainty.

I hurt, and I know why I hurt sometimes. I'm sure you hurt too. We all do. It's a real real reality.

Livin' in a World (They Didn't Make)(Louis Toliver Jr-USA/Austin-Texas)

I despise most current politicians 
Living in a world they didn't make 
Playing with our precious lives 
Taking from us all they can take 

Most politicians make us think 
One race is better than the other 
One sexuality is better than the other 
One religion is better than the other 

Who is anyone in this world 
To think they are the maker of us 
I will not let anyone control me
In this world, I'll make a fuss 

There is not more time for the fake 

Livin' in a world they didn't make

Interlude: Race (Louis Toliver Jr-USA/Austin, Texas)

There are no more races 
Not in the modern world 
Just humans making it 
Not get back to your life 
And own your humanity 

State of the World (Louis Toliver Jr-USA/Austin, Texas)

Tucked away in an alley somewhere in the world, a child is crying for his parents. War came when his world wasn't looking and greed took his family away, even the newborn baby sister. 

Just a continent away, holding each other in a country house, two men are professing their love. But if they leave this house, they'll get swept away by the hate of religion right to their own graves. 

Right now, going against the culture of the times, a young man shares his God-given empathy by writing. The state of the world will change and because of this young man and others like him not all hope is lost.

Internet (Louis Toliver Jr-USA/Austin, Texas)

The world can be connected 
If we were all just respected 
It's never good to feel rejected
Our hate could be corrected 

Thankfully, the internet accepts all
It's a place where strangers call 
A freedom, a right, not a wall 
So let's be human, not animal

The Knowledge (Louis Toliver Jr-USA/Austin, Texas)

Baby, I got that knowledge
I'll take your mind to college

Let us be real clear, Honey 
Life isn't just about money 

It's about living in a world we didn't make 
Learning that many people in our lives are fake 

It's just plain old survival 
Let these words be your revival

Ain't Gon' Run No Mo' (Louis Toliver Jr/USA-Austin, Texas)

I came back to the plantation 
To tell you 
I ain't gon' run no mo'!
Rather you chain me 
Lash me 'til I bleed
Or take my loved ones from me!
I'll still do the work of you lazy men
So do your worst, little boy 
'Cause any one brave slave 
Is stronger than all you Slaveowners 
I won't hide from your weakness 
So do your worst, little boy!

Power (Louis Toliver Jr-USA/Austin, Texas)

Everyday, I wake up
I think
I want to be better 
Than the President
Rather English or not
Wearing a wig or not
Being short or not
Being southern or not
Jewish or not
Black or not 
Woman or not 
I just want to be better
When I look at humanity
I don't see the external
I look at the internal 
I look at the source
It is there 
You learn power
