More info on College Track...

Empower students from underserved communities to graduate from college.

College Track recruits students from underserved communities and works continuously with them from the summer before ninth grade through college graduation. Our ten-year program removes the barriers that prevent students from earning their college degree by providing them with comprehensive academic support, leadership training, financial and college advising, and scholarships. We teach our students the skills necessary to succeed in college and beyond.

What matters most, for young adults to build a successful future, is a college degree. College graduates are 2 times more likely to be employed and they earn 1.6 times more than high school graduates. They are more likely to be productive, participating members of society, being 2 times more likely to vote and 2 times more likely to volunteer. And yet, today, 80.5 percent of low-income students DO NOT graduate from college.

Track Name: WAKE UP
All we are is all we are
and all we’ll ever be
and looking for an answer
isn’t what it means to see so wake up

wake up

shortening attention
weakening beliefs
So give it up for giving up don’t question what it means
to live without inquiry
to swallow what is fed
while letting go the climbing rope, complacent till the end
We’re all one, of a billion more
Standing there, safe in line, tepidly and bored

so wake up
just wake up
it’s the calling you’re surrounded
so wake up

If change is a religion
then faith is what we need
to live without an ounce of doubt or validations plea so
remove yourself from the billion more
standing there safe in line tepidly and bored

So wake up
just wake up
It’s the calling you’re surrounded
So wake up

So gather up the precious things
and throw them in the wind
cause all in all this game we play
is a toss up in the end
so just wake up

So wake up
just wake up
It’s the calling you’re surrounded
So wake up
Track Name: FRANTIC BELIEVER
Couldn’t speak of a need for an ending
Couldn’t dream of the journey impending
Disbelief, within grief but pretending

It gets better
It gets better

Hesitate at the gates of the pass through
Memories, on a screen being reviewed
Finding out, every doubt - reading the truth

From this letter, this death letter

Living another agenda
Passively an offender
Living another agenda

The last call
How will I follow?
Dying a frantic believer
Dying a frantic believer

Without time, do you lie in the rapture?
Or has the light flickered out ever after?
Without a cure, we unsure keep lamenting

it’s not better, it’s not better

Living another agenda
Passively an offender
Living another agenda

The last call
how will I follow?
Dying a frantic believer
Dying a frantic believer

In the end, the clock is unfolding…
we’re comfortable with nothing or we’re anxiously, coming clean, hoping that you’re pleased by what you see

The last call
how will I follow?
Dying a frantic believer
Dying a frantic believer
Track Name: STAY WITH US
Flew too high
to come down again
to go back again

Escapist mind
from this masquerade
let the colors slowly fade

Don’t throw it away, it’s a mistake
Life left unknown

There’s no reason
Why you’re leaving us
For cold hands and envelopes
It’s no secret, just give it
time to change your mind from giving up
Cold hands and envelopes
It’s no secret, just stay with us

It’s alright
to second guess, so put your mind to rest
Days go by - decide
To push away the pain, start building up again

There’s no reason
Why you’re leaving us
For cold hands and envelopes
It’s no secret, just give it
time to change your mind from giving up
Cold hands and envelopes
It’s not worth it, just stay with us
Track Name: COME ALIVE
The disease of the band of vultures
Starts within from the faint of hope
Giving in to the veiled imploring
this way, look this way

we keep buying it, we keep buying it, we keep buying it
we keep buying it

Everywhere, all around they’re pushing
Breaking in, disguised in gold
playing the voice of sanity and control

they always say

Quiet down, shut your mouth you might shake something
keep what you need, what you bleed from the light of day
“It’s ok,” to look the other way
“It’s ok,” to keep your mind at bay

…But it’s not right

So will you
come alive
if all around you
it’s out of sight & out of mind?
don’t follow that road, there’s no hope
so will you
come alive, come alive?

We all have a choice
stay quiet or lose our voices
they always say

Quiet down, shut your mouth you might shake something
keep what you need, what you bleed from the light of day
“It’s ok,” to look the other way
“It’s ok,” to keep your mind at bay

It’s not right

So will you
come alive
if all around you
it’s out of sight & out of mind?
don’t follow that road, there’s no hope
so will you
come alive, come alive?

We are the sickness within the culture
of keeping peace within fallacies
around the world, you can hear the vultures
circling their own prophecy
they will destroy, destroy (live a lie)
they will destroy, destroy

So will you
come alive
if all around you
it’s out of sight & out of mind?
don’t follow that road, there’s no hope
so will you
come alive, come alive?
Track Name: RIGHT NOW
Look to the right
Look to the left
everyone is searching how, how to pin down why
strife, is a recurring word
and why living by a noble cause won’t heed what they deserve

Right now
Right now

And what if you’re wrong and there
isn’t forgiveness
No matter the cause there just
isn’t forgiveness

So beware of the snake in the garden
and you should, you should beware of the offer of pardon now
It’s all a skeptical production, so hold your tongue
Living for miracles seduction won’t change what’s wrong right now

If that’s the truth and there’s no reprieve
Will you be the captain or the prisoner of the ailments to come?
Right now?
are you forgiven
Right now?

And what if you’re wrong and there
isn’t forgiveness
No matter the cause there just
isn’t forgiveness

So beware of the snake in the garden
and you should, you should beware of the offer of pardon now
It’s all a skeptical production, so hold your tongue
Living for miracles seduction won’t change what’s wrong right now

Are you living, can you live, are you living yet?
Are you living, can you live, are you living yet?
Are you living, can you live, are you living yet?

Beware of the snake in the garden
and you should, you should beware of the offer of pardon now
It’s all a skeptical production, so hold your tongue
Living for miracles seduction won’t change what’s wrong right now
Track Name: DIGGING THROUGH MY MIND
Get up, tired and weary
This feeling has no back story
it comes again
in the morning
out of the depths
without warning

Throughout the day, missing color
Black and grey, vision is smothered
I guess I’ll wait,
till the morning
But hoping for change
gets so boring

I can never see
Why this keeps happening to me
It’s as if, digging through my mind
Is something that I regret with every breath and don’t know why

So follow follow
the haze peculiar
mechanical days, seem familiar
It’s clogging up my veins, and piling on the weight
I’m hoping to find the answer
why it comes again
without warning
the sudden change
in the morning

I can never see
Why this keeps happening to me
It’s as if, digging through my mind
Is something that I regret with every breath and don’t know why

Looking for a reason why
something doesn’t feel right
I’ve been down this road many times
getting closer to the other side
closer

I know I’ll be fine this time
it’s alright
Track Name: HOLLOW
Always letting go
While we can’t afford to keep
Our heads buried in the sand, while the tide is rising

With attention blown
by constantly consuming
We’re blind under the sand, while the days are breaking

Hollow
The days are breaking
Hollow
The truth is failing

Can we recognize
when the megaphone is aligned
to feed us overtime, and keep our minds from questions

Lets dig out from this, it’s all counterfeit
They’ll keep piling on the sand, but we can stand above it

Hollow
The days are breaking
Hollow
The days are breaking
Hollow
What’s real is fading
Hollow
The truth is failing

Time’s always wasted
Time’s always wasted

Time’s always wasted
In lives that are wasted
It’s time we’ve forsaken
The practice of wasting our time

Hollow
The days are breaking
Hollow
The days are breaking
Hollow
What’s real is fading
Hollow
The truth is failing
Track Name: KNOCKING AT YOUR DOOR
Out of breath
Senseless
Grinding our teeth until there’s nothing left

Indifferent
Privilege
Held up as guard

There’s gotta be something else

Never never never call out the truth
Push it far away from us
Forever wallowing through from afar

Don’t try to hide on the blind side
it’s knocking - knocking your door

Knocking at your door

It’s heartless at best
Turning cheek until there’s no one left

Never never never call out the truth
Push it far away from us
Forever wallowing through from afar

Don’t try to hide on the blind side
It’s knocking - knocking your door

Knocking at your door
Track Name: EVERYTHING'S IN LINE
Hung up
On life and living right
back then that meant goodbye
Dismissing all the signs
That everything’s in line

Never cared enough
So I let, you, go

I’m sorry - to hang you out to dry
While searching for reasons - why I’m
retreating every time
when everything is fine

Never cared enough
Always pushing back
So how’d you, know I’d come around
When I, let, you, go?

Know I’ll never know, know I’ll never know the right way to live
Coming up the road, all I’ll ever know is what I can give to you

Always, never let you down
Stolen time, but you knew somehow
We carried on, with our hands tied down
And I’ll never let you go
Track Name: SHUT IT DOWN
Shadowed, covered up
Never thought it could
Shuttered without a trace, underneath
But go further, further down the heart of greed
Chip away, let it all bleed out
Though falling away is a tragedy
I’m stuck with the feeling it’s how it’s meant to be…

Swollen to the teeth
tangled in deceit - don’t need it

Disconnected needs
Severing, severing leaving out the meaning of it all

Where do we go now?
When knowing’s not enough
to shut it down

Never ending
running thin - don’t need it

Buried underneath
Threatening, threatening, pointing out the meaning of it all
Are you better? Are you better for it?

Where do we go now?
When knowing’s not enough
to shut it down

Are you better without it?

Where do we go now?
When knowing’s not enough
to shut it down
