Track Name: Destiny
‘Destiny’ lyrics by Pleasuremaker aka Joe 'Cheo' Mcguire

Vrse 1

Read the news today oh boy
they said they’ll start another war
don’t ask what’s all this fighting for
they’ll do again as they’ve done before
the taxman sure collects your dollars
the bombs keep dropping children holler
another real time tragedy
to fulfill some twisted fantasy

bridge
People we got to stop and think
lord knows we’re headed towards the brink
if we can achieve unity
then we can fulfill our destiny

Chorus: 
Rise up Babay
we can make it i know it’s true
rise up everybody
we can make it i believe it too!

Vrse 2

Read the news today oh lord
another Sister hit the floor
don’t ask me what she died for,
our own police will kill some more
i see so many people starving
and those on top they just keep ballin
another power grab you see
to disrupt the people’s destiny

bridge
People we got to stop and think
lord knows we’re headed towards the brink
if we can achieve unity
then we can fulfill our destiny
Chorus: 
Rise up Babay
we can make it i know it’s true
rise up everybody
we can make it i believe it too!

Seeing things i never seen
Being things i never been
Doing things i never dreamed
Living plans i never schemed

Chorus:
A new way of seeing
A new of being
A new way of freeing your mind
A new life worth living
A new chance for giving
A new way to fulfill this time

Watch the stars fall down on me
Thought the darkness i can see
Winds are blowing songs of change
This feeling things don’t seem so strange


Chorus:
A new way of seeing
A new of being
A new way of freeing your mind
A new life worth living
A new chance for giving
A new way to fulfill this time

'Moonlight Stroll' Lyrics by Pleasuremaker aka Joe ‘Cheo’ Mcguire

Vrse 1:

Hey i see you hiding away
like you got nothing to say
its time to get up baby
and oh
deep inside you know
you watch the dancers go
and let your body flow

chrs:

take a stroll in the moonlight
everything is all right
as the music calls to you
you know what you

hey i see you running away
like your afraid to play
but now's the time to stay
and O, oh, oh oh, oh
come on baby you know
its just that good time show
the kind that makes you blow

chrs :
take a stroll in the moonlight
everything is all right
as the music calls to you
you know what you
Track Name: Running in Circles
Runnin' Round in Circles by Joe-Cheo Mcguire aka Pleasuremaker

Vrse 1:

tis the season for delusion
all this aggression is seclusion
the mind insinuates impressions
of a world w- less depression

CHORUS:

Keep running round in circles having this same ol' dream,
where nothing is like
nothing is like it seems
I'm in a panic I'm in a state of fright
keep running round in circles all thru the nite


Vrse 2:
Reality deletion in this edition
of fix your mind on more sedition
which leads to revolt and insurrection
circumspect of misdirection


CHORUS:

Keep running round in circles having this same ol' dream,
where nothing is like
nothing is like it seems
I'm in a panic I'm in a state of fright
keep running round in circles all thru the nite
Track Name: Politricksters
Politricksters lyrics Lyrics by Pleasuremaker aka Joe ‘Cheo’ Mcguire

Vrse 1
Everyday on the TV everyday on the News
they're all in your ear giving you the blues
they're covering holes and acting out roles
creating alibis to sell their lies
and making plans behind closed doors
setting the stage ya'll for endless wars
no regard for the people no love for humanity
this selfishness and greed
leads to insanity

Bridge:
politicksters working, they working over time
creating an illusion inside the people's mind
its a troubled situation we find ourselves in
got to tear down the wall and start again

Chorus:
they lie
they cheat
they steal
they murder

anything to get the power
anything to keep the power
anything to get the power
anything to keep the power

Vrse 2

everyday in the house everyday in the senate
their endlessly working in it to win it
try to win your vote win your loyalty
bomb some other nation and set their people free
stop and frisk our people as long as their not white
claim w- moral high ground our countrie’s always right
this is our society truly and oligarchy
the corporate fascist run the scene while the people long to be free

Bridge:
politicksters working, they working over time
creating an illusion inside the people's mind
its a troubled situation we find ourselves in
got to tear down the wall and start again

Chorus:
they lie
they cheat
they steal
they murder

anything to get the power
anything to keep the power
anything to get the power
anything to keep the
Track Name: Don't Watch Them Die 2015 mix
‘Don’t Watch Them Die’ lyrics by Pleasuremaker aka Joe 'Cheo' Mcguire

there’s people dying in the street everyday
they dissapear, they just go away
it’s such waste of human life,
no amount of sorries will make it right
New York to Ferguson
folks are being killed
our justice system won’t cut a fair deal
as i shake my head in disgust
&wonder who, who can we trust

don’t just sit back and watch them die
while politicians continue to spread the same lies
this is human life, this aint no game,
it’s time we take responsibility and see who do we blame

black people dying every 24 hours
tears are streaming down just like showers
for those who give a damn about justice
we step out to protest authorities bust us
i see a police state in my own yard
across the ocean life is hard
can’t forget all those dying in vain
all this war and bloodshed’s is insane

don’t just sit back and watch them die
while politicians continue to spread the same lies
this is human life, this aint no game,
it’s time we take responsibility and see who do we blame
Track Name: What is Life
‘What is Life’ Lyrics ‘What is Life’ lyrics by Pleasuremaker aka Joe 'Cheo' Mcguire

don’t you know
life is for the living
can’t you tell
death is for the dead
let life, life be like music
and death, a note unsaid

don’t you know
life is for the living
can’t you tell
death is for the dead
let life be like music
and death, a note unsaid

let life….. be like music
let life—— flow
let life….. be like music
let life………

what is life?
life’s this crazy kinda thing
the kinda thing that makes you wonder
what is life?
what is life?
life’s this crazy kinda thing
the kinda thing that makes you wonder
and question and say to yourself
what is life?
as you gaze out at the stars
and they seem so very far away
and you wonder to yourself
you wonder what is life
