Track Name: I Believe
Stand up tall
Don't you ever put your head down
Like a tree planted firmly
Keep your feet on the ground 'less your flyin' away to your destiny

I believe in you

So what they've clipped your wings
You just gonna walk to your destiny now
Journey's long and your tired
But hold on
Just stay strong
And you'll find it was worth it all along

I believe in you

Callin' upon all my strong folks
With your hands in the air
We can take this strength anywhere

Callin' upon all my string folks
Together we can make it through
Track Name: New Skin
Our past defines us as we are
It should not confine who we plan to be
With so much trouble in our lives
It's best we make plans for humanity

In our new skin

Doesn't matter what color doesn't matter what size
New skin can stand up with pride
Doesn't matter what color doesn't matter what shade
New skin can stand up and be brave
Doesn't matter what color doesn't matter what price
New skin can help us realize
That the answer to all of our troubles is lending a helping hand

In our new skin

New skin to help new skin to aid
New skin to love new skin to pray
New skin to laugh new skin to cry
New skin to learn new skin to try
New skin to stand up for your rights
New skin to live free or die
New skin to follow your hopes and dreams
New skin to create a strong history

For our future of today

New Skin

Shed the old skin of hate and lust
Shed for new skin of love and trust
Give our new skin a chance to fly
Give our new skin a chance to try
