about

Chronologia was created in 2015 through a
collaboration between The Dick & Jane Project
and 8th grade choir students at Columbus Academy.
The students split into six teams and each partnered
with a Dick & Jane music producer, working together
for two weeks to create the lyrics and the musical
framework for a song. The following month each song
was recorded by professional musicians, vocalists,
and engineers throughout Columbus, Ohio.

Track Name: Walk Away
I see your smile and
I read your face
If I stay, what do I say?

For the first time I felt right
The air between us disappeared
I’m hoping you’ll look at me
‘Cause you’re all I see

It’s getting later and
Time is running out
People walk on by
You’re the only one I see
Should I walk away?
Or should I stay?

I stare at the sky
Wonder if you’re with another guy
You don’t see me
I let you walk on by
Track Name: Undeserving
Some people work for what they earn
while others just get what they want
Giving them respect for no good reason
Using their rep on the dollar front
No one can realize or even react
Except for the people who build up their stacks
The ones who put in the hard time
Will slowly become victims of the crime

I have a hard time believing
The world that we live in
Is so-o-o deceiving
so-o-o deceiving
The high class is lying
While I'm left here dying
You're hardly even working
You're so...undeserving

You know I'm not lyin cause I speak the truth
I'm giving out knowledge like a ticket booth
People have money, the gift that keeps on givin
I ain't dyin but this certainly ain't liven
People are running each and every way
While the homeless are have trouble finding a place to stay
It's not about the money or gettin the fame
Anyone that don't help ought to be ashamed
So if you think the world needs changin for you to be superior
You need to go by yourself and take a look in the mirror

I have a hard time believing
The world that we live in
Is so-o-o deceiving
so-o-o deceiving
The high class is lying
While I'm left here dying
You're hardly even working
You're so...undeserving

I was struggling, trying to be the best,
Comparing myself, to all of the rest
Putting pressure on myself to do well for this town
We can start a revolution, turn it all around

It doesn't really matter what they wanted from me
Cuz "Me" is the only person I can ever be
I was trying so hard to believe it
But so angry, that I couldn't see it

I have a hard time believing
The world that we live in
Is so-o-o deceiving
so-o-o deceiving
The high class is lying
While I'm left here dying
You're hardly even working
You're so...undeserving
Track Name: Merry Go Round Routine
It’s hard to remember those days
Looking back now is a blur
Those faces all blend together

And I know my thoughts have changed
I started looking at the sky
Those stars that shine so brightly have opened up my eyes

Even if my old ghosts start to haunt
I can become anyone I want
This merry-go-round routine just isn’t me

Back then when I wasn’t afraid and
I wasn’t in so much pain
There was no fear of putting myself back together
But now I can’t look anymore
You see, my mirror is cracked
Back then I had love to spare, now it’s the thing I lack

It’s been weighing down like an anchor
All the shame and terror, building up like a wall
All the pain that I’ve dealt
And the love that I’ve felt I’m so much better than it all
Track Name: Tomorrow Today
Sometimes I feel like my life’s moving faster than I can
Sometimes I feel like my feet just move faster than I ran

Yesterday’s a blur cause my minds stuck in tomorrow today

There’s nothing I can do I’m lost without a clue
But sometimes I try to take a moment
But life will always move too fast

We never stop to take a breath it never feels like we can
Life just keeps on moving on repeating the same plan

My life will never change it will always stay the same
Track Name: Pick You Back Up
We were like family
We were one in the same
And we grew apart, grew apart
Stuck at the crossroads,
we couldn't agree
We're torn apart, Torn Apart

When times are rough, we don't give up,
we find ways to keep moving.

We are there for each other,
until the end
Like Sisters and brothers
We'll make amends
And through it all
Yeah we're still friends
We share, we love, we fall
I'll pick you back up.

Mending up the open seams,
Trying to believe,
that this is all a dream, all a dream
don't know where we will pick up,
it seems like we are stuck,
In a never ending loop,

When times are rough, we don't give up,
we find ways to keep moving,

We are there for each other,
until the end
Like Sisters and brothers
We'll make amends
And through it all
Yeah we're still friends
We share, we love, we fall
I'll pick you back up.

We keep trying and trying and trying,
to get back up,
we do it again, and again, and again,

When times are rough, we don't give up,
we find ways to keep moving.

We are there for each other,
until the end
Like Sisters and brothers
We'll make amends
And through it all
Yeah we're still friends
We share, we love, we fall
I'll pick you back up.

Track Name: Kidnapped Soul
Life was a warm sunny day
Til' you left and it turned to gray

You said I could stay
But it was not OK
Kidnapped soul and I'm losing control
I can't stop running
'Cause you’re eating me whole

When I first heard your voice
I was sold you pure solid gold

It feels so low but this time it won't be so!
