about

USA 2017. We've got a soul crisis. In a time of thriving cultural diversity a billionaire white power machine has taken over Washington. We are looking for answers. We are seeking the truth. We need a protector. Don't let the demagogue get you down. Reach out to your neighbor and say hello. Get out and represent your people, show your love, and keep the faith. These are trying times indeed to overcome. If you're down like me, I hope these few songs lift your spirits and perhaps empower you to be the change we need in this world.
With Love,
dp 2017

Track Name: Soul Crisis
Soul crisis on the TV
Soul crisis on the city street
Soul crisis in your backyard
Soul crisis in the old guard
Soul crisis right in front of you
Soul crisis in your money too
Soul crisis in the nominee
Soul crisis in you and me

And everywhere you go now
You're bound to meet a sacred cow
Say baby what ya worshipping
What happened to your wedding ring
Every time I try to get back to the basics of life
You wanna spit in my face and fight
We got a soul crisis… rescue me

Soul crisis on the higher ground
Soul crisis gets the runaround
Soul crisis in the squad car
Soul crisis on electric guitar
Soul crisis in my whole grain
Soul crisis in the food chain
Soul crisis on the news feed
Soul crisis is the new breed

And everywhere you go now
You're bound to meet a sacred cow
Well baby what ya worshipping
What happened to your wedding ring
Every time I try to get back to the basics of life
You wanna spit in my face and fight
We got a soul crisis… rescue me
Track Name: Don't Let The Demagogue Get You Down (feat. Cherrye J. Davis)
Rise up all you people
The time has come the time is now
You've been hearing bout the future
Well it's here and now

Its time to let go of your judgement
It's time to let go of your fears
It's time to talk to your neighbor
We're looking for volunteers

Don't let the demagogue
Don't let the demagogue get you down

You got to raise up you fists
You gotta show us your soul
You gotta get ready for revolution baby
Heads are gonna roll

Its time to let go of your judgement
It's time to let go of your fears
It's time to talk to your neighbor
We're looking for volunteers

Don't let the demagogue
Don't let the demagogue get you down

It’s a media frenzy….they’re taking over
We gonna get it right back
Get it right back gonna get it right back

Don't let the demagogue
Don't let the demagogue get you down
Track Name: Protector
Well she's rollin down the line
In a steel cage computer design
But who's looking out for whats inside
That why we need a protector

Woman you been running off the track
Feel like the ice beneath you start to crack
Don't you ever think that I ain't got your back
I will be your protector

Poison water flowing free
And the soil ain't so rich down beneath
Have you lost all your belief
That's why we call the protector

Woman you been running off the track
Feel like the ice beneath you start to crack
Don't you ever think that I ain't got your back
I will be your protector

Well there's anger and there's fear
And they're raging with no tears

Woman you been running off the track
Feel like the ice beneath you start to crack
Don't you ever think that I ain't got your back
I will be your protector

Woman you been running off the track
Feel like the ice beneath you start to crack
Don't you ever think that I ain't got your back
I will be your protector
Track Name: White Power Machine
White power machine is coming to your little town
White power machine is gonna drag your spirit down
White power machine says hate the enemy
White power machine is after you and after me

White power machine has got the money and the law
White power machine got ya reeling shock and awe
White power machine is gonna hang you from a limb
White power machine twisted fundamentalist hymn

Running and hiding and ducking for cover gather here together
Throwing our stones and making our way on unprotected shores
Brothers and sisters make the resistance stronger everyday
Fighting for freedom resisting the rise of your twisted religious war

White power machine wants to tear us apart
White power machine is state of the art
White power machine is gonna dig up your land
White power machine making billions sleight of hand

Running and hiding and ducking for cover gather here together
Throwing our stones and making our way on unprotected shores
Brothers and sisters make the resistance stronger everyday
Fighting for freedom resisting the rise of your twisted religious war

Together we stand together we rise together we resist
