Where We At?


I LOVE this track featuring Derrick Carter. It was especially appropriate for the end of last year and the beginning of this year. I can't find the version that I really enjoy on a mix that I've been playing, but this one is good too.

The lyrics are what really move me:

As I stop, and take the time
To inventory, the inside of my mind
I realize, its not as full as it used to be.
With images of justice, or desires of liberty
The world has changed, or is it me that's new?
A different set of morals from a different set of clues
So still I wonder, is this all there is to life?
The ever changing cycles, in a world that's damp and ripe
There must more, yeah my heart I hold to this
I've known the joy of love and I've seen the peace and bliss
But as you know, all things must end, except the need for faith
And the spirit that's within to keep you strong
Move forward with power, program yourself to feel
With depth enough to know whats up and heart to sense the real

Where you at?

As I stop, for the frame we set aside
Below the bassline a secret place awaits for us to hide.
To pass the time as the war goes on-and-on.
A post-apocalyptic sunset, a post-apocalyptic dawn.
Of just a thought of the world we once possessed
A place that wasn't honest was just a house with an address.
A false existence, wrought with fear and mistrust, a life inside a box
No life inside of us.
Find your soul, use your inner voice,
The road less traveled, is now the path of choice.
Realize, with time comes change
New attitudes, new values, priorities rearranged.
Move forward with power, program yourself to feel
With depth enough to know whats up and heart to sense the real.

Where you at?
