Act Wild 03:25
This song is for all the women out there When you've had enough and they try to keep you down Stay strong! Stay Strong! Each one born with all possibilities You can do anything, be who you want to be You were born with the strength of humanity Don't let them blind you from your capabilities You've been weighed down Suppressed by society Let's burn all the barriers And let's take back humanity! Get up and act wild Get up and chant with me We've been fighting for too long Now it's our time to be free In a society full of wolves It gets so hard to breathe Hard to imagine it's reality To be a woman every day we have to fight fight fight In order to be heard to keep our rights rights rights Now tell me is this ain´t right Tell me you ain't here to fight If you had enough let me hear you say Tell them not today We've been fighting wolves Now it's time -for us- to chase them Listen to Mother Earth cry As she cries for you to save her Years and years of history But the same issues are still on the table You deserve your liberty And it's time for you to take it You've been weighed down Suppressed by society Let's burn all the barriers And let's take back humanity! Get up and act wild Get up and chant with me We've been fighting for too long Now it's our time to be free

Early morning (Early morning) Uniform Do up your buttons and transform You know your duties You abide the law But nothing could compare to what you saw They came by boats Came 4 by 4 said, They were running from their home Looking for shelter A promiseland A home away from home But you didn't give your time Seems you only protect your kind You could have given a helping hand And now 300 lives are dead You should have opened your arms, you should have said You should have said: I am here, I am here want you to know that you are someone and I care I am here, I am here want you to know that you are someone and I care They say a broken system makes the people do wrong But if it's broken, does it do right, or wrong? How many people have to die, for some rights? Don't we as people have a right to survive...ahhhh Lift up the borders, give a helping hand The more we look for peace, the more we listen to Understand Lift up the borders, give a helping hand The more we work for peace, the more we listen to Understand Weeks after weeks, Floating in the ocean Waiting for a sign To save their lives It is not a crime, to look for a better life Don't you ignore their cries Tell them : I am here, I am here want you to know that you are someone and I care I am here, I am here want you to know that you are someone and I care Left at the border With no place to go They have to move forward Cuz home is not a home How many people have to die? How many more will survive?

Conscious 03:05
Are you being conscious, conscious? Are you seeing what's going on? Are you being conscious, conscious? Are you feeling what's going wrong? Imagine a million bombs, bombing up on your yard Every day is another, another day long You try to stay cool, You try to stay calm But every day is another, another day long Broken systems make the people do wrong They'll do anything just to protect their own Try to play with the way they feel Watch out cuz survival is real Are you being conscious, conscious? Are you seeing what's going on? Are you being conscious, conscious? Are you feeling what's going wrong? How can you measure the good from the bad When everyone around you is corruption and mad You can try to normalize the way we feel But you better watch out for that judgement day Everybody's got hopes Everybody's got dreams So why can't we, just keep the peace We have right to do right We have a right to think twice We have a right to provide, Promote and preserve our lives We have right to do right We have a right to think twice We have a right to survive, Promote and preserve long lives All the riches of the world Could not compare to mother earth You better check yourself and recognize her worth Be careful what you do, your actions influence me too You better think before you do A right to do right A right to think twice A right to survive Promote long life A right to do right A right to think twice Just ask yourself Are you being conscious, conscious? Are you seeing what's going on? Are you being conscious, conscious? Are you feeling what's going wrong?

In My Skin 04:06
There are so many reasons Why people tear apart But races, borders, ethnics Should never be one Between our hands, this present I choose to share with you In threat for those who judge you For who you are, what you do There are so many reasons Why people tear apart but races, borders, ethics, should Never be one I want to be your squire Don't want to stay quiet When they abusing sisters, brothers, folks and lovers There's no human way to bear what you intake Like a snake, to change your skin, and what it means So much stories written on your melanin So much I still have to unlearn, from within If my skin could talk (If your skin could talk) What would it say (I want to hear it scream) Four thousand years (of oppression) Have you cry in rage (if your skin could talk) It's enough to be a woman In this world full of men Gotta prove that I am strong Gotta prove that i fit in Dodge the sexist bullets But the feelings still remain And then you talk about my skin Like it's another race I'm fed up with being treated, Being treated this way When I feel like any other I'm not treated the same way It's enough to be a lesbian In a society full of heteros I dodge their ignorance cuz I don't, Conform to their ways I don't conform to their ways. I don't conform to their ways I don't conform to their ways If my skin could talk (this is what it'd say) If my skin could talk (this is what it'd say) If my skin could talk (this is what it'd say) If my skin could talk But to be confronted by authorities For the color of my skin, To be treated like an alien Cuz I don't fit their image It's alot a lot a lot I had enough, I had enough It's a lot a lot a lot I said Build a path of liberty where our voices remain Hold together all the weight of history March together now towards this great future Yea, building great future If my skin could talk (this is what it'd say) If my skin could talk (this is what it'd say) If my skin could talk (this is what it'd say) If my skin could talk

Just hand me the mic And let my voice come alive Let it carry my words, The vibration enter your soul I came here to share all my love, Let it fill you one by one If you came here for some love, I can tell you're not the only one It's a sweet sensation, a sweet vibration When the people come together, They can storm any weather It´s a beautiful thing to see Everyone dancing in unity Moving to the beat of the sound Feel our hearts beating as one It's a natural thing to feel Everyone creating all together Let the music be the peace you need Let the music be the answer It's a sweet sensation, a sweet vibration When the people come together, They can storm any weather So if you´re feeling lost Just know that you are here Let the harmony, erase all of your fears Let the rhythm take you high And let the people take you in One love, one sound, We are all the same within It's a sweet sensation, a sweet vibration When the people come together, They can storm any weather

I want to live the life that I envision
 I want to live the life that I am dreaming
 I want to live free I want to live true 
I'm gonna show the world what I came to do I want to feel good in my own skin
 Want you to see the beauty that I have within
 I want to do what I want to do, without no fear
 I wanna say what I want to say, for the world to hear But don't you say it's not my time
 Don't you say it's not my time 
Gonna show the world, that I belong
 Gonna show the world, what I'm made of! The Taste of Freedom I want to feel good in my own skin 
Want you to see the beauty that I have within I want to live without weight, nothing to lose Live without regrets, nothing to prove
 The moon is high, the sea is deep
 And if I got something to say, I'm gonna speak Gonna love me for me, and you for you 
I'm gonna show the world, what I came to do But don't you say it's not my time
 Don't you say it's not my time
 Gonna show the world, that I belong 
Gonna show the world, what I'm made of! The Taste of Freedom Weight off my shoulder, I'm young my life's not over Express what's in myself and let my fire burn
 Weight off my shoulder, I'm young my life's not over
 Express what's in myself and let my fire burn The moon is high, the sea is deep
 And if i got something to say, I'm gonna speak Gonna love me for me, and you for you 
I'm gonna show the world what I came to do But don't you say it's not my time 
Don't you say it's not my time
 Gonna show the world, that I belong 
Gonna show the world, what I'm made of! The Taste of Freedom
