Track Name: Terrill Thompson - Angry
I was driving home late last week
looking forward to gettin home to sleep
when out of nowhere to my right
I saw a car speeding towards me

And that moment seemed like an hour
I could see the face of the driver
she had a look of panic in her eyes
then I felt the pain of impact

I wondered whether she was ok
and I wondered what was on her mind
She must have felt terrible
I hoped that I could help her

And I didn't get angry then
and I'm not angry now
cause getting angry don't do no good
It don't solve any problems

***

I met a kid downtown today
seemed to think I was in his way
he gave me a shove
and he put a gun to my head

And he said hey man
what you think you're doing in my town
I guess he thought that he was quite a clown
and I looked into his frown

And I wondered what made him that way
Did he have a mom and dad who loved him?
Did he have a dream
of what he wanted to be someday?

And I didn't get angry then
and I'm not angry now
cause getting angry don't do no good
It don't solve any problems

***

I heard about a kid in Afghanistan
just surviving any way he can
in a dried up, desert land
where there's not a lot of prospects

His only goal was to become a man
so they knelt down in front of him
and explained to him of evil
and they taught him how to drive a van

And I wondered what made him that way
could we have somehow made him different?
Could we give him a dream
of what he might be someday?

But I didn't get angry then
and I'm not angry now
cause getting angry don't do no good
There's better ways to solve problems

***

What would you have been feeling then?
What are you feeling now?
Do I make you angry?
or do I make you smile?
Track Name: Michael Gutierrez-May - Gabrielle
Come to the corner
I will hear your problems
I don't have all the answers
But you can talk to me.
It will help us get along
And you may not agree
But you can talk to me.


Oh, Gabrielle
I am coming to get you
I do not know why
They told me hate the government
They told me you're a socialist
I do not know why
But now, you must die.

Now there are riots in Egypt
To oust an arrogant man
He had all the answers
But now he doesn't know why
They are swarming in the streets
Yes, they are swarming in the streets.

Oh, Gabrielle
I am here to greet you
I want to know why
We lose our faith in government
They bark and call us socialists
We may disagree
May not see eye to eye
Yes, we may disagree
But you can talk to me.

Oh,Gabrielle...

Track Name: Sophie Weeder - Alone Like You
Everyday you run and every night
Cause you know if you finally stop to fight
That you will lose the ones so close to you
Tell me what is it like to be alone like you

You draw the danger anywhere you go
It doesn't matter how fast or how slow you run
Cause you're magnetized and destinized
And traumatized and paralyzed
So tell me how is it like to be alone like you

So you keep running and running
And dying and dying
And living and living
And trying and trying
But tell me what is it like to be alone like you
