BandSpoken WordRock

"One Big Team" is a nationally touring concert series that is part of a movement to decrease violence and promote understanding among America's teens.

Biography

"One Big Team" organizer Casey Boness was just finishing up his senior year of high school only 15 miles from Moses Lake, WA when 14 year old Barry Loukaitis opened fire on his algebra class on Feb. 2, 1996. The shooting in Moses Lake left two students and one teacher dead, with one other student wounded.

There have been over 50 school ground shootings in our country since 1990. The 2003 school year owned 5 of these.

Boness began organizing the "One Big Team" tour in 2003 to help students understand more about each other and encourage them to work together on worthwhile endeavors.

Lyrics

Hometown Hero

Written By: KCB

VERSE ONE
Here I am in Ritzville; Megan wants me to meet all her friends
A hardware store, a cheerlead; this high school fantasy it never ends
Fall semester in Seattle; Cory how did my sheets get in the fridge
Melrose Place disaster; a rooftop in the night a skywalk bridge
A party in Wenatchee; Sonja says her roommates just don’t care
It’s good to see you Shanna; pick and choose your past a triple pair
Every time in Stratford; Amanda and I share the sight of the moon
And mixed between the décor; she’s got pale green stars in her room

CHORUS ONE
Shane Johnson got a role in a Spielberg film
Haverlo joined the Mariners for a mil
My frail voice is coming on the radio
Can I win the title of a hometown hero?

VERSE TWO
The cops are out in Bridgeport; Sarah says she’ll party for the band
It’s freezing cold in Brewster; a king-size waterbed and three close friends
Mayfield Four in Spokane; Tia takes me to the show downtown
300 fans and no chairs; hold it in your hand and stand around
Donnys place in Portland; 1am arrival, no ones home
Chocolate syrup and some whip cream; sugar covered skin in the living room
Boat race weekend in Tri-Cities; a sixteen hour revel with Monroe
Jet was liberated; the pool, the house, the club it feels like home

CHORUS TWO
Eric Nuestrand’s on the road with Smash Mouth
Holly Met the president at the white house
My frail voice is coming on the radio
Can I win the title of a hometown hero?

CHORUS THREE
Shane Johnson got a role in a Spielberg film
Haverlo joined the Mariners for a mil
My frail voice is coming on the radio
Are KCB and Mr. Jones….going to be big stars?

Hope You Find a Way

Written By: KCB

VERSE ONE
For twenty-some years now I've been playing this game. And I've come to belive that it's not about pain. Struggle is optional, and if you just clear your head, Heaven doesn't have to be something you find until after you're dead.

PRE-CHORUS
But it comes from the inside, and it's not about pain

CHORUS
Love and laughter; I hope that you can only find a way. I hope you find a way

VERSE TWO
You don't want to belive it, but when your 75, you might have a sportscar, a guitar, and the best love of your life. Struggle is optional, and if you just clear your head, heaven doesn't have to be something you find until after you're dead.
