I Can't/We Can (Louis Toliver Jr - USA/Austin, Texas)

I can’t be everyone
I can’t be everywhere
I am just one soul
What can I do on my own?
The doubting “I” looms
The power I need to succeed
Is hidden in my own fears
If only I could rise to the challenge

We can be everyone
We can be everywhere
We are all the souls
We can do ALL together
The assurance of “We” empowers
The power we need to succeed
Is unlocked in our own dreams
We can rise to the challenge

WTF United States? (Louis Toliver Jr - USA/Austin, Texas)

Justice is missing
When crime is rampant
Grocery stores full
Starving is for the homeless
Get rich with guns
Go broke for education
Aids, cancer, diseased fates
Cures dance around us
Politics uncovering neglect
Freedom frolicking in bondage
The promised land is united
But where is it? When is it?
No woman knows this dream
WTF United States?
You are so divided
You are so far from home

Down/Up (Louis Toliver Jr - USA/Austin, Texas)

Sometimes the course changes
The rollercoaster goes down
There’s children fallen in the desert
There’s a veteran begging in the street

A soul is low that hasn’t eaten God
Our words are just empty bowls
Waiting to be filled with our emotion
Being down never makes you full

But the rollercoaster goes sideways
Twisting and turning, for yearning

Sometimes the course changes
The rollercoaster comes up for air
The children use their imaginations
They make new green worlds, prosperity

A soul is high that’s had a bite of God
When the ride is near its end, we’re flying
Our words are filled with years of work
Keeping your head up will never let you down
