This is our foray into Conscious Hip Hop combined with our signature chanting featuring Chants frontman and lyricist Kevin Fraser of Yesai & Chief Black Fox. The song is a journey starting with spoken word by Chief Black Fox on top of a beautiful soundscape with vocals and violin by Jenni Asher. It then morphs into a slamming hip hop rap verse with conscious lyrics created by Kevin. Dave Allen on kit gives the song the groove it needs. It moves into a heart opening chant motif with Renette, Dawn, Kevin & Jenni leading the way on vocals & harmonies, Jamie on world percussion and Jenni on violin, The chorus “Words and Sound” provides the context. It then build into a rocker with Asher Levy ripping a bluesy guitar solo and slide guitar harmonization by Shane Burroughs ending with Kevin's heartfelt wailing over the words of Chief Black Fox.

Lyrics: Coming Back Coming Back home to where it all started inside, we heal it, with songs with prayers, Great Spirit Great Spirit Great Spirit Great Spirit Great Spirit Great Spirit Great Spirit Great Spirit

Time flies when you're loving what ya do and we transcend so the angel coming through and they tell me that its worth the daily fight every day lets in a little more light so now inner work sets the blessings free and we give thanks for the lessons we receive stay up we need you in the game, without you it wouldn't be the same. It's all or none nobody left behind in this the first is the same as the last in line. if you don't thrive than never will we ever, if you gone die than we gon die together. Shine bright so we all can see and when we look into the future we can all believe it love is the path and is the way show- er hey hey yeah hey yeah

Hey Yah Hey Yo hey yah hey yah hey yah hey yah hey ya ho Hey Yah Hey Yo hey yah hey yah hey yah hey yah hey ya ho

It's all or none nobody left behind in this game the first is the same as the last in line if you don't thrive than never will we ever if you gon die than we gon die together. Shine bright so we all can see and when i look into the past i find what i believed in. We run on a path leads down the way so i hey hey a ho away. Time flies when ya living in a dream and we transcend when the music coming through and she told me that it's worth the daily fight, they just need a little more light. So now inner work sets the blessings free and we give thanks for the lessons we receive, stay up we need you in the game without you it ain't the same.
