Track Name: Kevin Briski and M.A. Baron - Stolen Sisters
I know you know heartache,
I know you know ruts.
I know you've seen better days,
Who hasn't seen better days?
You also know family.
You also know trust.
I gave up on better days.

But all your stolen sisters,
They'll never fully understand.
Decipher a thieving claw,
From an outstretched, begging hand.
I am a ravished child,
I am an overworked, bleeding man.
Will you remember my face?
Will you remember my heart?
Will you remember my world?
Will you remember your part?

Well you've witnessed breaking.
You've also seen mends.
I gave up on better days.
And your world you're making.
Mine uncontrollably spins.
It's getting hard to believe,
It's the same world we're both in.


Well you've witnessed breaking.
You've also seen mends.
I gave up on better days.
Your image was tarnished,
Because your efforts were spent,
Working on a ship trading slaves,
Then you wrote Amazing Grace.
Track Name: John Voelz - Name
Well, they tried to name me. Tried to make me something that I’m not
And they tried to claim me
As if I was something that could be abused, used, and bought
And they tried to mark me. I won’t lie, they left me scarred, feeling marred
But I’m learning
I am lovely and that these here scars are telling stories of what I’m not
And what I’m becoming, and who I am
I have a name—it’s not the one you tried to hang on me and curse me damned
They can’t hang a name on me like a tag that bears a price.
I am the price. I am the price.
If you listen closely, you can hear me
In the midst of noises and a sea of voices crying out for dignity
Do you know me?
I’m your sister, brother, baby, child, faces painted in eternity
And we’re becoming. Screaming out . . . “I am.”
I have a name—it’s not the one you tried to hang on me and curse me damned
They can’t hang a name on me like a tag that bears a price.
I am the price. I am the price.
I’ve heard of roses known by any other name smelling sweet
You’ll find us buried in the thorns
We are becoming. Screaming out . . . “I am.”
We have a name—it’s not the one you tried to hang on us and curse us damned
They can’t hang a name on us like a tag that bears a price.
We are the price
Track Name: Kelly Hile - God Hears
in dark silence, I walk
moving forward, in small steps,
slowly, feeling the cold walls
as fear flows like rushing water
over my soul
until I am drowning

I cry aloud to God,
aloud to God
and he will hear me.
From his temple
he heard my voice.
O Lord,
hold not your peace
at my tears

the voices, loud
the noises, growing louder,
drum in my ears.
I try to silence them.
I cannot block them out.
my voice is but a whisper now,
disappearing

I cry aloud to God,
aloud to God
and he will hear me.
From his temple
he heard my voice.
O Lord,
hold not your peace
at my tears

the pains that pound
are digging deep
into places that I never knew
could hurt like this.
bruises,
aching, longing in my bones
for healing.
instead, this feeling turns
familiar
I cry aloud to God,
aloud to God
and he will hear me.
From his temple
he heard my voice.
O Lord,
hold not your peace
at my tears

Love is this:
the only One
who meets me here,
breathes into my darkness,
light.
his voice is quiet, soft,
like mine –
I hear him still.
He holds me
and his healing
washes over my cold bones.
I whisper
and I can’t believe
he hears me.
Track Name: Amanda Vernon - I Can Love You
If I could make your nightmares disappear
And free you to live a beautiful dream
If I could take away your doubts and fear
And let you live strong and free
I would, I would

For now I’m here walking with you
And when you need to talk I’m listening to you
I can’t change the course of your life
But Love can, and I can Love you

If I could turn the darkness into light
And turn you back to your carefree youth
If I could trade your tears for happy times
And help you stand in the truth

Somehow survivors push through the pain
Somehow weakness becomes a source of strength
I can’t wait to see you rise above
On the winds of love
Track Name: Kelsey Rottiers and the Rising Tide - Unwoven
Has ever has ever your heart beat
As true as true as the sky.
A river a river my heart bleeds
Fraying the Web of your lies.
As if I had not seen right through it
I knew it I knew it I did
But you talk me right out of my mind
And you broke me and sold me again.
When is all unwoven every inch
And I'm bare and broken like a naked doll in your fist.
What's the use in trying to stand up tall?
When all my strings are lying in the broken Hands that make me fall.
Will ever will ever my heart sing
As only as only God knows?
A whisper a whisper his words bring
Me closer and closer to letting go.
As if I could step out and trust in the hands that formed my heart
That knit me together and know me as more than just broken parts.
Track Name: Jake Down and the Midwest Mess - There's Gonna Be A Wedding
You know there's gonna be a wedding
a promise older than time
everyone we love will be gathered all around
as the lovers twist like twine

it'll be such a joyous occasion
every tear will be dry
the past will be vanquished and laid in the dirt
as we look into our lover's eyes

water turned to wine
and wine turned to blood
a blood that can clean, release and redeem
so that two can be as one

all the fighting will finish
all the debts will be paid
for who can harbor anger sitting in a church
on their own wedding day

earth once shrouded in darkness
now pierced by a beckoning light
and to joyful peels of monastery bells
all will be made right

and the trees will sing hallelujah
and the earth shall give up it's dead
and we won't then remember this hell
as we're caught up to heaven instead
Track Name: Steve Davis - There's A Light
There's a light in your eyes
There's a song in your soul
And you sing sing sing
Yeah you sing sing sing
There's a light in your eyes

There's a light in your eyes
There's a song in their souls
And they sing sing sing
Yeah they sing sing sing
There's a light in their eyes

And the song you sing
Sounds like hopeful things
And the song they sing
Sounds like doubt
But the soul's the same
Whether free or chains
Can't let the light go out
Hear the melody
Rising up to be
The anthem of our time
Let their light shine free
May their song always be
We're not alone
In the fight
I'm not alone
In the fight
Track Name: Andy and the Pandy's - In My Mind
I've been running for my life
If only in my mind
I put all of my thoughts away
And I hide them in my heart
Where they can never touch
And I pray somehow I'll make it through the day

Because I know
Someday we'll all be free
And i hope
That day will come for me to see

There's no locks on my cell
No bars inside this jail
Just the lies that I believed were truth
And it's stealing all my youth
And cutting off my roots
It's killing all the life in me

But I know
Someday we'll all be free
I just hope
That day will come for me to see
Track Name: Carl Gladstone and the Unbound Choir - Emancipation Hymn
Praise we the Lord! Let songs resound
To earth's remotest shore
Songs of thanksgiving, songs of praise
For we are slaves no more

And cease we not the fight of faith
'til everyone be free
'til mercy o'er the earth shall flow
Like waters o'er the sea

Praise we the Lord! Whose power hath rent
The chains that held us long
God's voice is mighty, as of old,
And still God's arm is strong

Praise we the Lord! Whose wrath arose
Whose arm our fetters broke
The tyrant dropped the lash, and we
To liberty awoke
