Alive Lyrics

Everyday is a new day
I'm thankful for every breath I take
I won't take it for granted
So I learn from my mistakes
It's beyond my control, sometimes it's best to let go
Whatever happens in this lifetime
So I trust in love
You have given me peace of mind

(Chorus:)
I feel so alive for the very first time
I can't deny you
I feel so alive
I feel so alive for the very first time
And I think I can fly

Sunshine upon my face
A new song for me to sing
Tell the world how I feel inside
Even though it might cost me everything
Now that I know this, so beyond, I can't hold this
I can never turn my back away
Now that I've seen you
I can never look away

(Chorus)

Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away)
Now that I see you (I could never look away)
Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away)
Now that I see you (I believe no matter what they say)

(Chorus 2x)

Boom Lyrics

I never knew that a kid like me
Could take his mic around the world and flash the big S.D.
And rock the masses, from Madrid to Calabassas
Tijuana, Mexico, bootleg demos in Tokyo
They know me though, 'cause I be puttin' in work
Commit my life to rebirth, well respected, 'cause that's my word
I'm sure you heard, about a new sound going around
She might have left my hood, but she was born in my town

We rep. the South, so what you talking about
I'm not running off my mouth, I know this without a doubt
'Cause if you know these streets, then these streets know you
When it's time to handle business, then you know what to do
Me and my crew, we stay true, old skool or new
Many were called, but the chosen are few
We rise to the top, what you want? Just in case you forgot
Rush the stage, grab my mic, show me what you got

You didn't know, thought we was new on the scene
Well, it's alright! It's alright!
I know you know, I see you smiling at me
Well, it's alright! It's alright!

(Chorus:)
Boom! Here comes the Boom!
Ready or not, here comes the boys from the South
Boom! Here comes the Boom!
How you like me now?

Is that all you got?
I'll take your best shot.

Execute The Sounds Lyrics

[VERSE(1)]
I'm on a mad styleee, underground
We come cool and deadly with that natural sound
And make it feel so free, you no turn it down
Vibes 619, from the Southtown
And Jah know, what I & I wanna do
Because Jah know, I a master true
You know Jah know, the real who is who
Ain't no time to fake it, make it feel brand new
It goes 1,2,3, the crew is called P.O.D.
And if you want to go to the tiptop
Break it down with that one drop

Waaaioooooooooooo!

[Chorus]
Execute the sounds
Positive come around
Impact the sounds
Positive all around
[reapeat]

[VERSE(2)]
Ya wann' mess me, try to take his crown
Babylon test me, we gon' smash 'em down
Original O.G., this is my playground
No take me seriously, you gon' feel it now
I man know the harder they come
Because I man am gonna get the job done
You know I man know they don't want none
Me never have to cheat, 'cause me already won
1904, home to the real hardcore
And you don't wanna sleep, don't talk
I'll break you down with that one drop
Waaaioooooooooooo!

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I need, I need ho a oi
[x6]

Going In Blind Lyrics

This life's not like you wanted it
His eyes, I can see again, I need you here
In your mind nobody's listening
It's your right not to feel again, just breathe again

[Chorus 1]:
Time after time, I walk the fine line
Something keeps bringing me back
Time after time, I'm going in blind
I don't know which way I need to go

Feels like your world is caving in
And I cry, failing to understand, I wish I can
It's alright if you're missing him
In his eyes you can live again, free within

(Chorus 1)

[Chorus 2]:
Time after time, I walk the fine line
Something keeps bringing me back
Time after time, I can't see the signs
I don't know which way I need to go

Do all these roads lead back to you?
I don't know which way I need to go
One day, some day...

Song Description:
'The lyrical inspiration of 'Going In Blind' came late the last night of our studio session in Knoxville. We had finished one song and had a rough music sketch of another. We thought we were finished and would be heading home early in the morning until one of those moments happened. Our inspiration walked through the door. A good friend and neighbor of our producer Travis Wyrick stopped by the studio, for what I have no idea. I was on the phone at the time and she was probably there no more than a minute. I think she said hello to the guys, smiled at me and then left. I walked back into the studio and the guys were continuing a conversation we had a few days earlier. Travis was telling us about his friends who had lost their child to a crime so evil I couldn't even begin to explain. That's how it started; none of us had an 'Explanation'. All of us in the room were husbands, fathers, men of faith and spiritual guys who overall believe in the 'Power of Good'. At that moment, not one of us could come up with an explanation. We were speechless and quiet. How do you tell this woman that everything is going to be alright? How do I tell her God has everything in control and truly believe it myself? Telling her I understand would make me a liar! Don't get me wrong, I believe in God. I believe in this faith that has saved my life and I would willingly lay my life down for what I believe is the truth. Just don't ask me to do the same for one of my babies. I don't think I could.

Everything you believe in and everything you know to be true can be tested in one single second, the second your child is taken away from you. What do you say to that person? I wish I could say everything is going to be alright. I want to tell you that God has everything in control. And like you, I want to understand. What an amazing person this woman is to have walked past me and smiled even though I had no idea what she has been through. One smile of love is more encouraging than a million words. I have been encouraged to walk this fine line of life even though at times I might not know exactly where I am going. Even though the road gets rough, if we walk them in LOVE, we might actually get to where we need to be.' - Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.)

Goodbye For Now Lyrics

I can still see the light at the end of the tunnel
Shine through the dark times even when I lose my mind.
But it feels like no one in the world is listenin,
And I can't ever seem to make the right decisions.
I walk around in the same haze, I'm still caught in my same ways.
I'm losing time in these strange days,
But somehow I always know the right things to say.

I don't know what time it is,
Or who's the one to blame for this.
Do I believe what I can't see?
And how do you know which way the wind blows?
Cause I can feel it all around,
I'm lost between the sound.
And just when I think I know, there she goes.

Goodbye for now, Goodbye for now (so long)
Goodbye for now,
I'm not the type to say I told you so.
Goodbye for now (so long)
I think the hardest part of holding on is lettin it go.
When will we sing a new song? A new song.

I'm still smiling as the day goes by,
And how come nobody ever knows the reasons why?
Bury it deep, so far that you can't see.
If your like me, who wears a broken heart on your sleeve,
Pains and struggles that you know so well,
Either time don't, it can't, or it just won't tell.
I'm not the type to say I told you so,
I think the hardest part of holding on is lettin it go.

I don't know what time it is,
Or who's the one to blame for this.
Do I believe what I can't see?
And how do you know which way the wind blows?
Cause I can feel it all around,
I'm lost between the sound.
And just when I think I know, there she goes.

Goodbye for now, Goodbye for now (so long)
Goodbye for now,
I'm not the type to say I told you so.
Goodbye for now (so long)
I think the hardest part of holding on is lettin it go.
When will we sing a new song? A new song.
When will we sing a new song? A new song.

And you can sing until there's no song left (song left)
And I can scream until the world goes deaf (goes deaf)
For every other word left unsaid,
You should've took the time to read the signs
And see what it meant (what it meant)
In some ways everybody feels alone,
So if the burden is mine then I can carry my own (carry my own)
If joy really comes in the morning time,
Then I'm gonna sit back and wait until the next sunrise.

Goodbye for now, Goodbye for now (so long)
Goodbye for now,
I'm not the type to say I told you so.
Goodbye for now (so long)
I think the hardest part of holding on is lettin it go.
When will we sing a new song? A new song.
When will we sing a new song? A new song.

Song Description:
'This is about that promise we have all have of a better tomorrow. That's the message that I really wanted to get across in this song. The lyrics read, "If joy really comes in the morning time then I'm gonna sit back and wait until the next sunrise." It might be tough right now, but you have to stick it out.' - Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.)

Here We Go Lyrics

He never knew the meaning
Of love until he'd seen her
Oh man, she really drives him crazy
And she knows what she's doing
Heart aches, he can't fight the feeling
And won't stop until he tells her
She is his one and only lady
And you got to believe me

[Pre-Chorus Build]:
It's what he said, what he said
This is what he said

[Chorus]:
If you take my hand
We can run away
Stay close to my love
'Cause here we go again
Don't let go of my hand
So we can fly away
If you trust in my love
This will never end

She never did believe in
Love until she'd seen him
He's got to be pretty amazing
For her to share what she's feeling
She takes the chance, time for living
If she wants to get with him
She said you're gonna think I'm crazy
But you've got to believe me

[Pre-Chorus Build]:
It's what she said, what she said
This is what she said

[Chorus]:
Seems like we spend so much time
Driving this to its knees
I guess I won't really mind
If we're living for you and me

And this is what we said

(Chorus)

If It Wasn't For You Lyrics

Do I believe in the resurrection of CHRIST?
And did HIS death bring forth new life?
And did HE raise up and bring back Lazarus from the grave?
And is there supposed to be a second coming?
Am I wrong because I'm wondering
Why the fallen Babylon is up and alive today.
And do I really believe in the mark of the beast?
Cause he's still dwelling up in my streets,
Strapped and ready to fight this war.
And he's got more guns than you and me.
But most people don't wanna believe,
That they still prejudice simply because we poor.
Do I believe that Mother Teresa was a angel on this earth?
And thou shall love thy neighbor even if he acts like you?
Do I believe in Heaven or Hell?
Shoot, hell yeah I do, cause we alive today,
And my crew is living proof.

If It Wasn't For You
None of this would ever mean a thing
If It Wasn't For You
Tell me why else would I believe?
Would I believe?

Do I believe that the rider of the white horse,
Is coming back for the righteous?
And the morning star keeps gettin brighter every day.
Is there such a thing as good and evil?
Still division amongst the people,
And we're not all created equal just because you say.
Do I believe in the trinity, and will I live eternally?
Even though I'm not quite the saint that you claim to be.
Did Dr. Martin Luther have a dream?
Was Haile Selassie I a king?
And is it ok to sometimes feel a little bit confused?
Will armageddon never come?
I'm not perfect, just forgiven.
And I might just push back the next time you shove.
Do I believe in one God, one aim and destiny?
Just don't forget your first love,
That's what my moms use to tell me.

If It Wasn't For You
None of this would ever mean a thing
If It Wasn't For You
Tell me why else would I believe?
Would I believe?

If It Wasn't For You
Then none of this is for nothing
It's all for nothing!

It's all for nothing!
It's all for nothing!

If It Wasn't For You
None of this would ever mean a thing
If It Wasn't For You
Tell me why else would I believe?
Would I believe?

If It Wasn't For You
None of this would ever mean a thing
Would I believe?
If It Wasn't For You
Would I believe?
If It Wasn't For You
Would I believe?

Lights Out Lyrics

It goes one for the money, homie, two for the show.
We tore the roof off this mutha, now it's time to blow.
Like we don't need no water, don't bother, we let it burn.
We keep the fire just a little bit hotter, that way you'll learn.
Respect I earn! Started with the clique that I hanged.
Respect I earn! Ever since I got in this game.
Respect I earn! Never wanted fortune or fame.
I'd rather have these South D'ego Streets knowin my name.

Chiggy-check, microphone check.
Chiggy-check, microphone check.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
If you wanna you can check my stats.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
Make way cause the kings is back.

We bang boogie through your system, subliminal.
We lyrical murderin like we criminals.
It's life or death, medical decision.
We so dope out the lab that you'll need a prescription.
The hood is listenin, so for you that I wrote this.
Keep it underground, stickin to the streets like the homeless.
With the dopeness, recognize the real P.O.D.
Cause we triple O, O triple, triple OG.

Chiggy-check, microphone check.
Chiggy-check, microphone check.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
If you wanna you can check my stats.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
Make way cause the kings is back.
Lights Out, Game Over.
If you really think you got it like that.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
Word on the streets is the boys is back.

Lights Out, Game Over.
Make way cause the kings is back.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
If you really think you got it like that.
Lights Out, Game Over.
Word on the streets is the boys is back.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
Worldwide homie pay respect.
Lights Out, microphone check.
It's Lights Out, microphone check.
Make way cause the kings is back.
Lights Out.

Song Description:
'Musically, it's pretty simple, but it's just got a groove that you can't deny. The working title was actually "ESPN" because as soon as we heard the music, we could imagine it on sports highlights. It actually inspired the lyrics - "lights out, game over."' - Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.)

Rock The Party (Off The Hook) Lyrics

We came here to rock this jam
Spread His love is the master of plan
Let this light ignite like a star
Everybody in the party knows who we are

And we'll keep dancing till the break of dawn
Keep it live like the way it should

Cuz a party ain't a party when it gets shut down
Off the hook, with the cutz, that's right
Feel'n loose cuz it sounds so tight

Make sure that you're there when we do it again

We came to rock the party all night long
So party people won't ya sing that song
We came to rock the party all night long
And keep it live till the break of dawn

Roots In Stereo Lyrics

P.O.D. and Matisyahu
Original Roots In Stereo, ya know
One time, bring it down selecta

I got that boom-by-by so nobody disrespect.
Jah love give me strength and power flow through I dreads. Nuff said.
You want walk with Kings, talk with kings
When it all goes down, have no idea what it really means.
To live I words if scripture is roots,
And the wise hold they tongue when the youth speak the truth.
You learn real quick, where I'm from if you don't belong
Only the strong survive Southtown in Babylon.
(See Babylon Burnin to the ground yo)
You think you number one wicked selecta?
Try to sneak up in my hood, we not go letcha
(Babylon's burnin to the ground, yo)
In the streets they hear your name, they no respect ya
You can run and hide, in the end we gon'getcha

Boom-biddy-by-by
Original Roots In Stereo
So rep the streets you ride on.
Chant dem down with that rude boy sound,
And watch the whole world lie down.
We generals in the streets they know
Who wears the crown to shine now
It got that champion sound moshin through your town
We go make the world go lie down.

Me say hey natty dreadlocks! Where you come from?
Where the mountains watch the city and waters touch the sun
Where some carry crosses like others carry guns
And pray Jah be glorified till the day soon come.
Follow me
Lick a shot if you a mighty warrior
Lick a shot if you a freedom fighter
Lick a shot if you a true Souljah
Now dance your way back to Zion
(Now Dance your way back to Zion)

I put it down for your love till my journey is done.
And let the stories be told how the battle was won.
So I grabbed the microphone and I started to run
Here I come, Boom-biddy-by
Here I come

Boom-biddy-by-by
Original Roots In Stereo
So rep the streets you ride on.
Chant them down with that rude boy sound,
And watch the whole world lie down.
We generals in the streets they know
Who wears the crown to shine now
It got that champion sound moshin through your town
We go make the world go lie down.

Empty nation just a phase, redemptions on it's way.
The people love to talk but they don't got that much to say.
Generation of orphans whose hearts are all ablaze,
Little light in a lot of darkness goes a long way.
Freedom hearts bleed, and I see them feedin poison.
Poor choices, spirit screamin, trying to break these boundaries.
Running up a mountain, chains tied to my feet.
Running up a mountain, chains tied to my feet.

Original Roots In Stereo
So rep the streets you ride on.
Chant them down with that rude boy sound,
And watch the whole world lie down.
We generals in the streets they know
Who wears the crown to shine now
It got that champion sound moshin through your town
We go make the world go lie down.
We go make the world go lie down.
Make the world go lie down.

Bloodstain drippin through the rain,
Face down, trip and feel the pain.
Get up, you conduct your own train, rippin it up, stepping it up, raising it up
We're the blood of God's veins, we gotta maintain get past the blame.
And then this fame came, for a reason and a season.
Then I'll stay up, not lay low,
And raise yours and up the offering
And then the blessings will flow

We go make the world go lie down.
Make the world go lie down.
We go make the world go lie down.
Make the world go lie down.

Dripping in the rain, face down, trip and feel the pain
Get up, you conduct your own train, rippin it up, stepping it up, raising it up
We're the blood of God's veins, we gotta maintain past that of blame
Gathers fame, came for a reason and a seasons
Here to stay up, not lay low

Song Description:
'The Chorus is really about representing the things that you're about. When Matis came in, he really put his faith into the song, which totally blended with us. Musically, that's one of those songs that has the signature P.O.D. sound, reflecting all the diverse things we're into.' - Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.)

Satellite Lyrics

I wonder how clear it must look from there to here
No obstruction, this selfish corruption
All in this atmosphere

No fear, less tears, only time to catch my breath
I fail to inhale
Your love constricts my chest

Confusion blinded me, mental and physically
And it's because of you that now I can see
So now can I run? I follow the Son and ride on to Zion
And dance this last song of freedom

But only time will tell, if it's truly for real
Can't change your mind, all I know this is what I feel
Whether I'm wrong or right, please keep my life in sight
And never take you eyes off me

(Chorus:)
As I look up to the sky today
Well I can see you looking down on me
It brings a smile to my face again
Satellite

It's truly one of a kind, like star shine, beyond night time, are you there
My eyes stare to find, just what's behind this blind notion of mine, is it genuine
Cause sometimes, it plays tricks with my mind, some call it asinine

But it's like love or hate, now is that real or fake?
Cause it's a real thin line, but that's your choice to make
The question at hand, help me understand, is this your plan?
I think I can, can I think, then I think I can

Because I won't break (nah), and I won't shake (nah)
With lifted hands to this Man (Jah), I'll stand in faith
I'll make it through, my trust in you
Close my eyes, make a wish, kiss the sky

Hey there...I see you

(Chorus)

Set Your Eyes To Zion Lyrics

Hey Mr. Deadman! Rejoice!

Back in the day when man he paved the way
Fell in temptation, sin spread through the nation
Lead me salvation, and pierce these palms of holy hands
Who is the son of man? take me to the promised land
Where I and I is free, Jah set my mind at ease
Will I stay cool in the shade even at 96 degrees?
You must believe and plant this seed of wisdom
Stick to the track and don't be trapped by Babylon

Set your eyes to Zion
Jah Jah people ride on
Set your eyes to Zion
Jah Jah people ride on

Forgive them Lord, for they not know
That what they do, people blame it on you
Can't understand why dem so mad
Dem heart get cold, empty with no soul
But I've begun to search for One

To be with you, forever I'll be with you
In paradise, Zion I set my eyes

Set your eyes to Zion

Set your eyes to Zion
Jah Jah people ride on

We set our eyes to Zion

Sleeping Awake Lyrics

Reveal to me the mysteries
Can you tell me what it means
Explain the motions and metaphors
Unlock these secrets in me
Describe the vision, the meaning is missing
Won't anybody listen
Define the riddles of my mind
Nothing is really what it seems

[Chorus]:
Dreaming of Zion, awake
Sleeping awake
Dreaming of Zion, awake
Can't stop sleeping awake
Do you see what I see
Can you hear what I hear
Do you feel what I feel
Can't stop sleeping awake

Can you see it, the writing
Can you tell me what it means
Translate the symbols, enigma
Won't anybody listen
Prophecy, interpret the signs
Nothing is really what it seems

[Bridge]:
Do you see what I see
Can you hear what I hear
Do you see what I see
Can you hear what I hear
Do you feel like I feel
Can you dream like I dream...

(Chorus)

Southtown Lyrics

Welcome to hard times, back again like it's never been
For the first time it seem to mess with my head
When I realize what it takes, can I relate
With whatever, but never will it drive me to hat
Could be the next guy that you take before I wake
Now I lay me down to sleep, eyes tight when I pray
This here is real life, circumstances make you think
Should I be counting my blessings, the next second my eyes blink
Here in the Southtown you know that kid don't play
Put it down in the streets, will I see another day
If I make it back this time, gots to hold what is mine
And thank God that I made it alive

One love it's easier said than done
Can I rise above anything that gets in my way?
Like words you say, you let your tongue get loose
And when push comes to shove, I'm not used to walking away
I keep on looking up, because these times are getting tough
Tomorrow's gone and it's the same o' song
Father fill my cup, give me strength to power up
A life to shine, you're the diamond in this rough

It ain't gots to be like this
Don't wanna throw up my fist
Don't wanna be like this
Don't wanna throw up my fist
I must resist

Here in the Southtown you know that kid don't play
Put it down in the streets, will I see another day
If I make it back this time, gots to hold what is mine
And thank God that I made it alive

Will You Lyrics

See you sitting next to the window in the bedroom
She brakes down - brakes down
Crying over something and staring into nothing
Afraid now - hate now
Wanting, needing, haunting, it's killing me
Faking what has happened to live the life like that man
I'll brake down - It's fake now

Will you, Will you love me tomorrow
So Will You, Will you stay with me today

Fade in and out of reason to fight the way she's feeling
She brakes down - brakes down
Going through the motions and holding onto hopes
And her dreams now - somehow
Shakin, mistaken, forsaken, it's killing me.
Wishing you could change, but he's always been this way
If you leave now - I'll drown

Will you, Will you love me tomorrow
So Will You, Will you stay with me today
Will you, Will you be here tomorrow
So Will You, you remember yesterday

Yesterday! Yesterday! Yesterday!

This time, I'm sorry
This time, I'm sorry
This time, this time, I'm sorry for this time
This time, this time, I'm sorry
This time I'm sorry!

Will you, Will you love me tomorrow
So Will You, Will you stay with me today
Will you, Will you be here tomorrow
So Will You, you remember yesterday

Will you, Will you love me tomorrow
So Will You, Will you stay with me today
Will you, Will you be here tomorrow
So Will You, you remember yesterday

Youth Of The Nation Lyrics

Last day of the rest of my life
I wish I would've known
Cause I didn't kiss my mama goodbye

I didn't tell her that I loved her and how much I care
Or thank my pops for all the talks
And all the wisdom he shared

Unaware, I just did what I always do
Everyday, the same routine
Before I skate off to school

But who knew that this day wasn't like the rest
Instead of taking a test
I took two to the chest

Call me blind, but I didn't see it coming
Everybody was running
But I couldn't hear nothing

Except gun blasts, it happened so fast
I don't really know this kid
Even though I sit by him in class

Maybe this kid was reaching out for love
Or maybe for a moment
He forgot who he was
Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged
Whatever it was
I know it's because

(Chorus:)
We are, We are, the youth of the nation

Little Suzy, she was only twelve
She was given the world
With every chance to excel

Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell
She might act kind of proud
But no respect for herself

She finds love in all the wrong places
The same situations
Just different faces

Changed up her pace since her daddy left her
Too bad he never told her
She deserved much better

Johnny boy always played the fool
He broke all the rules
So you would think he was cool

He was never really one of the guys
No matter how hard he tried
Often thought of suicide

It's kind of hard when you ain't got no friends
He put his life to an end
They might remember him then

You cross the line and there's no turning back
Told the world how he felt
With the sound of a gat

(Chorus)

Who's to blame for the lives that tragedies claim
No matter what you say
It don't take away the pain

That I feel inside, I'm tired of all the lies
Don't nobody know why
It's the blind leading the blind

I guess that's the way the story goes
Will it ever make sense
Somebody's got to know

There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more to everything
I thought exists

(Chorus)
