Lyrics

Gots Mine

Written By: Flowmotion

Will this fare will this fight
begin the setting of the bottom line
we the people on the rise unite, unite
It’s in the air in the fire
from the streets of no care to the countryside
We got to come together gots to realize
We’re all walking on the same dirt
trying to make things work
I hope you can feel the force
cause its straight from the source
All one people
Now there’s some big men
who’ve got themselves these big plans
there coming to take what’s yours
and try to get it to their own clan
they’ve got themselves this system
with no rhythm or rhyme
but I say the powers in you people
we got to quit wasting all this precious time
Gots mine, c’mon and get yours
through the ages of time
man wonders wondering
And I say it’s all in your mind
There’s no time to squander
Cause we creating a place
At a new pace, to step it up in your face
And ask a couple questions to the human race
What are we doing, who we foolin
Is it me who’s got the screw loose?
For believin and dreamin, Martin Luther King
and seeing a vision, it’s a fact
I will never turn back
and I want to see my people thrive on the new pact
All one people
When the people lead, then the leaders will follow
stand up today and take back tomorrow
They’re biden their time, fightin the tide
Hey big man, gots to realize
We’re all walking on the same dirt
Trying to make things work
I hope you can feel the force
Cause its straight from the source
All one people

Pleasure Opportunity

Written By: Flowmotion

If it's your way
can you give it some action
they tell me cali I A
They say it's simply satisfaction
But if this feels good
I'm gonna let it roll on
you think that I should now mamma
should I let this go on
cause your tellin me it's a pleasure
a pleasure opportunity
Now this is it
I'm just doing what I want
and for all you different flavors
we got all these years of good funky stuff
well I'm on the back porch
but I'm not gonna beg ya no,no,no
I'm just needin someone
who can help me through the door
can you help me to the PLEASURE...

(Time Goes)
Got a crazy feelin in my blood
and it's tellin me not to worry
I can hear the humm, the city and the buzz
and it's tellin me not to hurry
Because time will go, and time will fade
and in time I'll see you on the way
I may go or I may stay
but in time I'll see you on the way
Just like the warm and sunny rays
brings a smile to ease the pain
I can feel you in these days
feel you right into my brain
Time will go, and time will fade
and in time i'll see you on the way
I may go or I may stay
but in time I'll see you on the way
When I find that piece of mind
High blows the wind
In the sky I'll see you shining
high blows the wind
goodbye to your car and to your skin

(TASTY)
Today I'll try
and I'll try not to pretend
I found out this is fatal
wouldn’t you know by now
how high, we'll fly
the ground below it begins to blur
it's to late
the wind will carry me............
The time I wasted
trying to keep my feet
from lifting off the ground
now I dive in waist deep water
I'll dive, I'..........
Gimmie some of that funky stuff
cause I'm about to funk shit up



Gather Light

Written By: Flowmotion

Do you feel enlightened
when you see some truths in life
some may be frightened
but we know what we’ll be alright
cause we’re not running
no for the days are coming
when the skys will clear
and the fear disappears
and your rainbows reign
we’ll all be there alright.
It’s time to see through the judgements
and it’s time to see through the shame.
they tried to put you in a class
they tried to give us a name
but there’s one thing I can tell them
we are this human race
and we’re trying to come together
cause only love can make that change
Gather light to fill the life
of all creation
morning star is shining so bright
what a sensation
we the childeren of the light all generations
coming together feel so right
with your love and vibration
If you can’t see by now
then it’s time that you wake
we are a family we are this human race
so I won’t go back to those illusions
I won’t go back to their confusion
cause this train is moving on
and are train it won’t stop groovin
I’m getting on.
hear what we’re gonna do
