Corporation Rules (free) 04:32
Corporation Rules So many of us crying......so many of us down So many of us trying to find jobs that can’t be found They take away our savings.....they take away all hope And leave so many hanging from this cliff without a rope CHORUS While they blame it on the taxes and our schools In this world where wall street robs us and the corporation rules While we sail on this sinking ship of fools In this world where wall street robs us and the corporation rules The corporation rules One time we had a future....but now that time is past And now we realize that every empire does not last We struggle to keep up now..... while laws are changed to please To maximixe the profits of the corporate entities REPEAT CHORUS With no one to depend on..... so many are distraught The system seems so broken and the politician’s bought We’re only seeking justice to bring this truth to light If only God could trust us to bring change and do what’s right REPEAT CHORUS

What We've Done by John Beccia After all is said.......... after all is done..... You will be my only......... be my only only one It’s written in the stars .....here underneath the sun No matter what we’ve done............ No matter what we’ve done After all the talk.......after all the plans........ Like a flying hawk..... coming back to land We have come so far.....from where we have come No matter what we’ve done........no matter what we’ve done It isn’t we say...... but only what we do........ That ever counts at all......... that ever shows what’s true Trying to complete..........what we have begun No matter what we’ve done......... No matter what we’ve done We have left behind....... the things we understand........ Put our faith in love...... without a master plan And the days will show......... what we have become No matter what we’ve done......... No matter what we’ve done You might say we changed......... you might say we tried It always seemed so strange...... to try and run or hide ‘Cause when you reach the end......... who are you hiding from No matter what we’ve done......... No matter what we’ve done You can turn ahead..... and never look behind...... Still you can’t escape.... the voice inside your mind "Cause the events of life....... are a continuum No matter what we've done........no matter what we've done REPEAT 1st 3 lines No matter what we've done........no matter what we've done........ No matter what we've done........no matter what

Like the Sun 06:09
Like The Sun (by John Beccia) What a love we have, I count the blessings everyday All the years we've had, they disappear like yesterday When I first looked at you, and you we're looking back at me How could we have known what this relationship would be So we rise to face another day Awakening to what will come What a love we have, shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun What a love we have, one I'm working to deserve A lover for this life, our children to love and observe The flame inside my heart is burning with the love you give Desire so complete, this is the way we're meant to live So we rise to face another day Awakening to what will come What a love we have, shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun Instrumental So we rise to face another day Awakening to what will come What a love we have, shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun (bass-drum break) (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun (Shinin' brightly like the su-----------------n) shinin' brightly like the sun

Matter of Time by John Beccia With a book, in the middle of a lonely night You are looking for hope and a ray of light Really there's no easy way....to escape the passing of the day, ye-ah So much confusion with a growing fright And it don't really matter who's wrong or right There's no reason to define....or to try to read between the lines, o-oh CHORUS - 'Cause it's just a matter of time You roll with the changes or get behind The past will be shattered and it's just a matter of time Try'n to live your life as if it's planned Try'n to build on a rock but it feels like sand Everything will crumble down....into pieces fallin' all around, ye-ah Got to reach for a hand that you can touch Any little bit of love can mean so much Livin' life as if it lasts....even though it passes by so fast o-oh REPEAT CHORUS In your mind all the memories that will come Take you back to the places where you are from Analyzing now and then..... realize the story has to end, ye-ah Try'n to live your life in the here and now Try'n to hold what you got but you don't know how, Passing thru another stage....as you slowly turn another page,o-oh REPEAT CHORUS twice Time........Time........Time........Time

The Real Thing by John Beccia No longer lost and alone or being left on your own When it’s the real thing Now you can trust someone else as you are looking toward what lies ahead You don’t have to be who you’re not You don’t want to lose what you’ve got When it’s the real thing..........When it’s the real thing When it’s the real thing..........When it’s the real thing No longer wonderin’ what’s wrong , you feel just like you belong When it’s the real thing C7 No longer stuck in a rut.... cause you are part of what seems to be true And now that your love means so much It fills you with each tender touch When it’s the real thing..........When it’s the real thing When it’s the real thing..........When it’s the real thing Instrumental Break You’ve given into the urge you know that love can be yours When it’s the real thing Just like when lightning will strike, you find it burning way down in your soul Inside of your heart you receive This feeling that makes you believe When it’s the real thing..........When it’s the real thing When it’s the real thing..........When it’s the real thing When it’s the real thing..........When it’s the real thing When it’s the real thing..........When it’s the real thing

Good Times Gone (free) 04:10
Good Times Gone by John Beccia I couldn't take it when I heard the news Abandoned like a pair of worn out shoes How feelings move you when you lose a friend Is this the way the good times end? CHORUS Oh where, oh where have all the good times gone? Remembering the things that you have done Now all that's left you is to carry on Oh where have all the good times gone? I stayed up watching all the late night shows They never gave a clue to how life goes Pictures and words all in a senseless blend Is this how all the good times end? REPEAT CHORUS It's hard to face it That you're no longer here Death can't erase it The love we used to share I think about you when I hear the blues The same old story and the same old news Into the earth is where we all descend Is this the way the good times end? REPEAT CHORUS

The Wonder of It All by John Beccia I wonder (wonder wonder) where it all goes from here I wonder when it all disappears I wonder at the wonder (wonder, wonder) of it all I wonder (wonder wonder) why you're right there for me I wonder how this love came to be I wonder at the wonder (wonder wonder) of it all I don't have to think about ever being here without Ever being here without your love I wonder (wonder wonder) why it happened this way I wonder how the night turned to day I wonder at the wonder (wonder wonder) of it all I won't have to wander more... any restlessness before, Any restlessness has all but gone I wonder (wonder wonder) why it all turned around I wonder how what's lost can get found I wonder at the wonder (wonder wonder) of it all I wonder (wonder wonder) at the wonder (wonder wonder) of it all..... all.....all.....all......................

Moneylove (free) 03:15
Moneylove by John Beccia There's lucrative lurkers living up on the hill For power these people are dressed to kill Polluting with poison for drilling and mining and all at will For moneylove The energy monsters get their desires The laws that protect us are under fire While power from sun and from wind and from water is shoved aside For moneylove The rich getting richer, the poor stay poor The number of jobless is growing more Small business is dying, big business is thriving, you know it's all For moneylove The large corporations are guaranteed While Mother Earth suffers from all this greed Our natural resources divided among them to fill the need For moneylove They're cutting back programs that help the poor They're building more bombs for the next world war Will it be Yemen, Angola, Rwanda, Korea, or El Salvador Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, or Georgia, there's so many more Places where people are dying and children are crying, you know It's all for moneylove For moneylove For moneylove For moneylove

about

Up in the Air's 12 album with it's usual eclectic mix of all original songs done in many different styles. After more than 25 years together the band still defies any specific catagory other than always doing upbeat, danceable, music with relevant lyrics (well maybe not Hootchie Koo).
