Track Name: Destination Hope ft. Chris Turner & J. Ivy
{Verse: Chris Turner)
Livin' in a jungle
Soul slippin' away
Kids runnin' 'round
Runnin' wild, runnin' wild

Livin' for tomorrow
Not like yesterday
Look around, who's around

And spaceships won't
Bring you there
Boarding a plane might
Bring you closer

I just wanna live
Sisters and brothers
Let's learn to love
One another

Is that so hard
We can go far
I can see it, clear as day
What a day, what a day

Hopelessness
I reminisce
Of days like this
I'll never miss

Remember who we are
Everyone's a star

[Hook: Chris Turner]
Oh, my people
Let's go my people
Let go my people
Keep hope my people

{Verse 2: Chris Turner}
Let's love our world
And one another
Yes Mother Earth
Gives us life
Clean her up
So she don't waste away

No one is perfect
We make mistakes
And life's a lesson
We have to take
So open up
We will find a way

{Spoken Word: J. Ivy}
I would imagine that hope is the place
Place in our hearts
That reveals itself
From the start of our days

Our ways determine if we get there
I'm trying to get there
Stay there
Vacate
Stay-cate

Exhale my hell
Inhale my peace
The piece that was left behind for me
Where I see the possibility
I feel it physically...I feel it physically

[Hook: Chris Turner]
Oh, my people
Let's go my people
Let go my people
Keep hope my people
Oh, my people
Let's go my people

{Spoken Word: J. Ivy}
Lyrically I translate with a honest tongue
Lunge at a chance
To dance with this destination

Hope is a idea applied to our imaginations
Living in purpose
Should be our daily situation
Destination
Hope

Hope houses our health
Our wealth is valued by the value
We find in the experience
The joy found in the adventure
The experiment
It's evident in the love
That we walk with
Speak with
When we give without expectation
No matter the relation

This garden without guns
Without hate
Without disease
Is the perfect location
When I dream
I pray
I hope
For this destination
