Summer Osborne St. Louis, Missouri

You could describe her as the love child of Adele, Carole King, and Joss Stone. You could describe her music as folk soul, acoustic rock, and piano pop with glimpses of jazz, blues, and roots music. But you cannot confine her to a genre. You will laugh, you will cry, you will feel. Come join the adventure to feel better!! It is the evolution of the soul – one song at a time. ... more

Track Name: Consciousness *Guided Meditation
Consciousness

I close my eyes
and breathe deep
aware of my hands
and then my feet
and I fell myself grow into the earth
just like a tree
and I tremble
vibrating on another level
and I know... there’s something more

I close my eyes
to pray
and I feel the connection
when I say
that I am so grateful
for this day
because it is a gift
and I feel my heart shift
and I know... there’s something more

So I lift my hands to the sky and I
ask the universe to try...
please... give me a sign
Send me a lullaby
And I heard...

CHORUS
I have come
to challenge your consciousness
to see if you can
break these chains
open your mind
open you heart
to feel things you cannot see
and you will never
be the same
no you will never
be the same

So close your eyes
and breathe deep
be aware of your hands
and then your feet
and imagine yourself in a meadow
or in a forest
or on a beach
It’s your choice
wherever your comfortable
just relax
and focus on my voice...
Track Name: Evolution Revolution
Evolution Revolution

You know I could say
Whatever the hell I want
Or I could shut my mouth
Mama said, mama said, if it ain’t nice
Then it’s a better idea to just think twice
It’s your first amendment girl, but don’t wear it out

It’s an acquisition to the proposition
Built up of the politics and pieces of old time religion
And no offense, but there’s no sense in calling it God
When you call the church a building
The consequence of filling it up
With people willing to buy out what they’re selling
Is you won’t get no Jesus at all…
No, you won’t get no Jesus at all

CHORUS
We need an
Evolution revolution
For the love of love
A new constitution
A proclamation
For emancipation
From the self imposed hell
Of an ego driven nation
I will
Reach out and touch you even when they tell me not to
Because I believe when push comes to shove
We all suffer from
A lack of real love

And I watch us do the same thing
Over and over again
To make a mess of it
Mama said, mama said what’s the probable cause
Stop beating your head against that wall
It’s not about where you fell, it’s where you slipped

And the problematic issue with dogmatic inquisition
Is it makes you rigid to the love already given
So your projections are miss-assigned and self-fulfilled
So when the spell that you’ve been under crashed with a thunder
You stop to look around and it makes you wonder…
Why have you been running uphill?
Oh and WHY do you KEEP running uphill?

CHORUS

Bridge:
Love is patient
Love is kind
It does not judge
It is not blind
I was lost
But now I see
Real love
Comes from me

CHORUS
Track Name: Gaea
Gaea

I’ve never felt the world
Like anybody else
The path that leads to poison
Could lead you to yourselft

A never ending spine
Of books forgotten pages
Laiden with the Sages
Cryptic words of time

We picked out all the ways
To tame the wild beast
Conditioned to be favored
By men who are deceased

CHORUS
The way
we live our lives today
we should be holding hands
to bow our heads and pray
Cuz once we figure out
we shouldn’t have begun it
it’s too late we’ll have done it
are we too far gone?
Tell me, are we too far gone

Our self told sleeping lies
that seperate the truth
when the left forsakes the right hand
both of them will lose

Cuz you know if we were never here
this world would still be turning
she’s not dependant on us learning
our lessons through her skin

Our toxic field of dreams
our drills, guns, bombs and axes
caused a chain reaction – a game of mass extraction
that she just cannot win

CHORUS
The way
we live our lives today
we should be holding hands
to bow our heads and pray
Cuz once we figure out
we shouldn’t have begun it
it’s too late we’ll have done it
are we too far gone?
Tell me, are we too far gone

BRIDGE
Universe
Mother Earth
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kindgom come
Thy will be done
For causing so much pain
For causing so much pain
For causing – We’ve caused so much pain

CHORUS
The way
we live our lives today
we should be holding hands
to bow our heads and pray
Cuz once we figure out
we shouldn’t have begun it
it’s too late we’ll have done it
are we too far gone?
Tell me, are we too far gone
Track Name: You Cannot Fight For Peace
You Cannot Fight For Peace

It seems I’m better off distracted
When the world gets too conflicted
When the words and all the actions
Don’t seem to coincide - you see

Nothing’s more contractual
Then the micro of the macro
The world is a reflection of intention
The world is who we are inside

W hen money equals power
When power is control
Control is taken with such force
it’ll put a bullet through your soul

Then we call our children bullies
and we give them no excuse
Your preemptive strike is called strategy
but at home it’s called
at home it’s called abuse

CHORUS
You cannot fight for peace
You cannot scream for silence
You cannot justify your anger
by claiming to be right
And you may hit your mark
By destroying the whole target
But if you’re trying to fight fire with fire
You’ll have to watch the whole thing burn

There is what works and there is what doesn’t
the definition of insane
is repeatedly using blunt force
and giving it a different name

Your planet, your people, your children
You can’t see the forest for the trees
those little actions you take trying to manipulate
are killing all of these

I don’t care where you have come from
or where your allegiance lies
can’t you see this world is round
and a circle has
a circle has no sides
CHORUS
You cannot fight for peace
You cannot scream for silence
You cannot justify your anger
by claiming to be right
And you may hit your mark
By destroying the whole target
But if you’re trying to fight fire with fire
You’ll have to watch the whole thing burn

BRIDGE
It doesn’t have to be this way
You and I both know there’s got to be a better way
and I know your resistance to pain
causes fear
It’s not about the promise of heaven or hell
it’s all about what’s happening right now
You have a choice
this is the point
to turn this all around
You cannot fight
You cannot fight
You cannot fight
For peace

CHORUS
You cannot fight for peace
You cannot scream for silence
You cannot justify your anger
by claiming to be right
And you may hit your mark
By destroying the whole target
But if you’re trying to fight fire with fire
You’ll have to watch the whole thing burn
Track Name: Crash *Ferguson Edit
Crash

Irony of circumstance
watching people wish they had
something in the shape of something new
I’m so tired of disdain
every day I pray for rain
to cleanse this city and it’s pain
absolve the streets clean through

ancient victims rise again
in the form of modern man
and stretch the patience of the hand
who feel they are blameless in it’s right

So take this city, take these guns
black and white and old and young
you’re fighting against what you’ve become

Crash

Seperation by six degrees suddenly is all we see
as the picture unfolds impatiently
after someone walks away
How is it we hold on to
the blinded beggar’s tamed untruth
when the peace that we are crying for
never saw the light of day

pick it up and stroke it dear
decision time is finally here
now close your eyes and take a breath
this is your lucid truth

Everyone is heading toward
the same goal on a different course
and when you wake up you might find out
the assassin was... you.

Crash

BRIDGE
What happens when the sun streaked sky turns cold
and the infrastructure is more delicate than bold
so everything begins to unravel and fold


When the leaves haven’t turned because it’s not time
A winter driven summer is unabashedly unkind
and you can’t fly south and you can’t rewind
It’s injustice – and it hurts

When the only thing we know to do
is lower our heads and walk straight through
because all this affirmative thinking feels like denial
denial of truth
denial of death
denial of us
denial of breath
and so we’ll hold it and hold it
into vengeance
and we’ll walk away
for fear of indifference

Crash

I walked outside, stood quietly
listened for my sanity
I recognize the chill deep in my bones
I’m so tired of disdain
every day I pray for rain
to cleanse this city and it’s pain
and it began to snow

Crash
Track Name: Be Impeccable With Your Word
Be Impeccable With Your Words (Spoken Word)

Be Impeccable with your words
Words, words, words, words
If we were to get technical, I guess you could say
That words are just sounds emitting from our vocal chords
In some communicative way…

But you and I both know … that’s not the truth in it’s entirety
Words are not just black on white – words are not just a language of society

Words carry power. There is an intention that precedes them.
Words contain an enigmatic force, even if you cannot readily perceive it.

Consider this…

There was a man, his words devoid of violence
His message spanned time and space – he inspired men into COMPLETE silence
And although I do not consider myself a Buddhist, his teachings do not evade me.
No… I am not a Buddhist. But his words save my sanity on the daily.

Then there was a man of Nazareth who inspired hope where none was expected
He made them see beyond the Pharisees, beyond the pain that was inflicted
He was a master manifester, a giver of sight, a lover of love, and bringer of light
And… I do not consider myself a Christian because of what the word has become, and how that makes me feel.
But I DO strive to be Christ-like… because THAT man used his words to heal.

And then there was a woman who had so many words to say
She could make the most calloused of men fall to their knees and pray
With a voice soft and gentle – her words could bring her people home
But if anyone were to ask her, she’d reply “These words are not my own.”

Then there was a woman – my favorite
She used her words to teach.
She gave children confidence, she taught them how to sing
And all of her words had a child-like glow that anyone could borrow
And everyone knew she came in love, and so everyone would follow
Now… this woman came, she taught, she loved, and then she left.
But she left her words in song…
And she made me who I am today
THIS woman, was my mom

But then there was this man… small in stature, round face
Who inspired an entire nation to exterminate an entire race
They worked them, they starved them, they were shot, they were gassed, and they were burned
And this man NEVER lifted a finger to do it...
Adolph Hitler ONLY used his words.

Sojourner Truth – And Ain’t I a Woman…
Martin Luther King – I Have a Dream….
Ask not what your country can do for you…
We hold these truths to be self-evident…

Namaste, Amen, So mote it be, Yes We Can

I am NOT looking for a dissertation on the life and times of each individual
I am not ASKING for your opinion.
I am talking about the words, the words, THE WORDS
And the POWER that lies within them
Listen…
Words can talk a man off a ledge
Words can pull a woman up from the ashes
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words CAN burn like acid

Men, women, and children have mamed and scarred themselves. Taken their OWN LIVES…
Because they could only SEE what they had heard.

So I beg of you…
When communicating with another soul, or even yourself…
Be impeccable with your words.
Track Name: Take It Easy
Take it Easy

Forget what they’ve told you
Forget what they said
forget all the lies and the stories
that you make up in your head
cuz it ain’t a question
of things working out
everything will unfold
as it does without a doubt

but you
you’ve survived your life up to this point
every obstacle and disappointment
so don’t try to pretend that this is the end
You are so much more than you give yourself credit for

CHORUS
Take it easy baby
it’s ok
everything’s a cycle and this too shall pass away
So do what you can for the moment
but your worrying won’t help
and don’t forget to be kind to yourself
Oh, don’t forget to be kind... to yourself

Maybe you’re tired
maybe you’re lost
maybe you’re worried about the future
or the past for what it’s cost
but don’t you know you
you have all that you need
every tool required to set yourself free

and ooooo

and you only take what you allow
but don’t try to pretend that this is end

BRIDGE
You’re pushing to hard against this storm
but if there were a drought you’d be praying for rain
baby don’t you k now that is what your feet are for
to stand still until the storm passes by
or dig a new well when the water runs dry
Balance... that was you’re aiming for

CHORUS
Take it easy baby
it’s ok
everything’s a cycle and this too shall pass away
So do what you can for the moment
but your worrying won’t help
and don’t forget to be kind to yourself
Oh, don’t forget to be kind... to yourself
Track Name: Life Is Supposed To Be Fun
Life is Supposed to be Fun

The best part of life is livin’ it.
The best part of love is givin’ it.
The very best thing about your pretty little smile
Is it’s contagious, so I’ll catch it, and share it for a while

The best part of the sleep is the dreamin’ and
The best part of the dream is believin’
So I’m pretty sure before you fall asleep
You should know, you are the best thing to me
You should know, you are the best thing to me

CHORUS
Oh baby
Just sit back and feel me
It’s not hard it’s really
easy all you gotta do is love the skin you’re in
because you’re beautiful and then
let it move you
satisfy and soothe you
knowing that it’s you who
makes all of the magic
you’re a wizard and you know it
and Life is supposed to be fun

The best part of the breath is the takin’ it
The best part of the mold is the breakin’ it
So stretch out your ideas until they’re bigger than you
and fill up all the spaces with a new point of view

I don’t suppose you’ll be any worse for the wear
if you just throw all your worries up into the air
and let them all fall to your feet
Cuz you know, you are the best thing to me
You already know, you are the best thing to me.

CHORUS
Oh baby
Just sit back and feel me
It’s not hard it’s really
easy all you gotta do is love the skin you’re in
because you’re beautiful and then
let it move you
satisfy and soothe you
knowing that it’s you who
makes all of the magic
you’re a wizard and you know it
and Life is supposed to be fun

BRIDGE
Oh the earth will turn
and the sun will rise
on you and me
and all those other guys
but the difference in
the wrong and right side of the bed
is which way you choose to roll
so push your bed up against the wall
OHHHH

CHORUS
Oh baby
Just sit back and feel me
It’s not hard it’s really
easy all you gotta do is love the skin you’re in
because you’re beautiful and then
let it move you
satisfy and soothe you
knowing that it’s you who
makes all of the magic
you’re a wizard and you know it
and Life is supposed to be fun
Track Name: The Fire
The Fire

I felt it comin’ on so strong
Like I’d been sleepin’ way too long

A voice in my head screamin’ out loud
said you better move fast and you better move now

Drop that baggage, leave it behind
Cuz the old stuff ain’t gonna work this time
No, you don’t have to take what you’ve been given
All you gotta do is run with the rhythm

CHORUS
You got the fire
You got the fire
You got the fire
You got the fire

There’s a light inside that burns so bright
It could cut right through the darkest night

Gonna shed those layers and labels and lines
that’s held me down, that’s kept me tied

It’s time to sink or swim and I’m
Gonna do one better, man – I’m gonna fly
No, I don’t have to take what I’ve been given
All I gotta do is run with the rhythm

CHORUS
I’ve got the fire
I’ve got the fire
I’ve got the fire
I’ve got the fire

BRIDGE
All my artists gather round
Bring your colors, bring your sounds
You’ve got the fire
All the drummers bring the beat
Bring all the dancers to the streets
You’ve got the fire
Poets, Painters
Magic Makers
Story book writers
and daydream designers
People start listenin’ Cuz I’ve had a vision
People start listenin’ Cuz I’ve had a vision
That love
love
love
love
Love (love)
Love (love)
Love’s gonna rule this world
Oooohhhhh

CHORUS
We got the fire
We got the fire
We got the fire
We got the fire
Track Name: One Of These Days
Physician Heal Thyself

I’ve been to hell and back to try to justify a cause
And I’ve paid a heavy price to try to compensate the loss
But if there is one thing, I am here to testify
It’s the purpose in trying to live without dying inside
You can’t take what you want without giving believe me, I’ve tried
You’re free to make choices, but not free from consequence
Do what you’ve always done, get what you always get
Don’t be surprised when your echoes go unrecognized
That’s intention disguised

Physician – heal thyself
Physician – heal thyself
Physician – heal thyself
Oh lord – before – you start dyin’

So tell me how it is that you feel so obliged is
To stand outside my door with you faded picket signs
Actions can ricochet and hit you right back where you stand
And that kind of hate negates the lessons at hand
If this is your idea of growth then you don’t understand
‘Cuz you’re free to make choices but not free from consequence
Do what you’ve always done, get what you always get
Life is affected by feelings – it’s not a demand
It is not a demand

Physician – heal thyself
Physician – heal thyself
Physician – heal thyself
Oh lord – before – you start dyin’

Spoken:
Let’s get honest
Life’s not all platonic
You live in this skin but you’re not catatonic
So give what you give, take what you take, feel what you feel
Then give it some space
But don’t act upon all the lessons you’ve learned
From the rest of the world, when THEY’VE crashed and burned
I am sorry…
Wait… no I’m not
If there’s a sliver of hate
Then I simply cannot
Get behind your quote, unquote “good reasons”
When reason is subjective to whomever it pleases
Instead of a fight
How ‘bout some self respect
What is it you DO want – let’s focus on that
Because you do not want the losing end of this mess
Now put your scruff down… you look ridiculous

Physician – heal thyself
Physician – heal thyself
Physician – heal thyself
Oh lord – before – you start dyin’
