about

The term "Race The Sun" is an allegory that represents our life here on Earth. Essentially everyone is in a race against the sun. A race to accomplish our purpose before our sun sets. My purpose is to make God honoring music that edifies the body of Christ. With that in mind, I'm started a yearlong audio-visual series called #RaceTheSun. I released 6 songs telling a story about redemption.

about

Sean C. Johnson Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Sean Johnson has offered music that lyrically takes the listener deep into the Word, music that seeps into your veins and stimulates a grooving rhythmic pulse, and music that flows hypnotically via Neo Soul ballads and poetically over Hip Hop beats. His new project continues in that tradition, but explores the outer edges of his own musical margins. ... more

LYRICS:
I recall when you had nothing, you was on the block trying to prove something
But that was no place for a brother like you
More like three piece sitting on the front pew…yeah that’s you
Good kid with a big heart, when everything around you was so dark
You expected to play your part
But what if the script was flipped, life hit you so hard make you lose your grip
Now your life revolve around quarters and fifths, rehab if you catch my drift
Man, these walls aren’t familiar, never was, never will be
Even with blind eyes I could still see

I’m a long way from home, but I’m so tired of running
At the end of the day it’s time to go, can’t tell me nothing
I’ve got to find my way back home; you know I got to go
End of the road, I look around and I’m all alone
I hear you saying my child come on
That ship is sinking you must let go
Follow my voice, I’ll lead you right back where you belong
Because it don’t matter how long you’re gone
You can always come home

(Whatever you do Lord) You can always come home
(Whatever you do Lord) You can always come home
(Whatever you do Lord) Don’t take your joy from me
You can always come home (Aha Aha Aha)
You can always (Aha Aha Aha)

I’m along from home (Whatever you do Lord) But I’m so tired of running
At the end of the day it’s time to go (Whatever you do Lord)
Don’t take your joy (Whatever you do Lord) Don’t take your joy from me

You can always come home (Aha Aha Aha)
Track Name: Sonic Boom
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us Lord.

Can you tell me what your heart is truly made of, it's so easy to see clearly when you're free from danger.

You're a stranger when temptation look like woah. Don't stop running, don't stop, Sonic Boom.

I hit that corner I'm running, I don't care if it's two miles or a hundred, aint no need for discussion, Walter Payton I'm rushing, I can't see what you're doing but I know you're up to something, so keep your hands high. High enough for me to see, never was a killer trouble see to follow me. But I'ma run this race that's all I know, I'm on that Sunday school on the Southside flow. Turn to 2 Timothy 2:22 and even 23. Run for your life, better yet flee, may catch some but you'll never catch me. That's why I keep Nikes on, keep that check on my sole, keep my soul in check, Geico for the wreck. So when temptation hit ya boy like whoa, I just find the exit sign, ready, set (Here we go again!)

On your mark, watch out
On your mark, ready set, ready set, Go (Sonic Boom)

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us Lord.
Track Name: Angels
Nothing high, nothing low can change the story
Try to run from your love, your grace will find me
Every time, every time, every time
I just can't keep running away

As the ocean is deep, so is your grace for me
The palm of your hand is the safest place to be
Every time, every time
I just can't keep running away

Cause not even death...life...can take me from your love
Nothing below me can take me from your love
Not even Angels above can take me from your love (Repeat)

No height, nor depth can separate from your love
Nothing to come can separate from your love

Cause not even death...life...can take me from your love
Nothing below me can take me from your love
Not even Angels above can take me from your love

There is nothing too big for you
Track Name: UNO
You are the one who reigns from above
Because of you the victory is won
You are the one who reigns from above
Because of you the victory is won (You Are The One)

There will soon come a day
When the world will proclaim (You Are The One)
When you rose from the grave my soul did say (You Are The One)
God of Abraham sent his son to earth just for me, so I boldly proclaim

Every tongue will confess your name
Every nation will give you praise
You're Jehovah, God you reign
I will tell them you are

You are the one who reigns from above
Because of you the victory is won
You are the one who reigns from above
Because of you the victory is won (You Are The One)

There is no other name with the power to save (You Are The One)
When you rose from the grave
What a marvelous day (You Are The One)
God of Abraham sent his son to earth just for me, so I boldly proclaim

Every tongue will confess your name
Every nation will give you praise
You're Jehovah, God you reign
I will tell them you are

You are the one who reigns from above
Because of you the victory is won
You are the one who reigns from above
Because of you the victory is won (You Are The One)

For eternity the angels sing (You Are The One)
Holy is the lamb, Holy is the lamb (You Are The One)
God of Abraham sent his son to earth just for me
Every voice will proclaim

(When we fall down, fall down and love together, maybe we fall down and love together)

Do you remember
21st night of September
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away

Chorus:
I may be down I'm coming up
(Hands in the air now)
I'm coming up
(Hands in the air)
I'm coming up [Echo effect]
(Hands in the air now)

I may be down I'm coming up
(Hands in the air now)
I'm coming up
(Hands in the air)
I'm coming up
(Hands in the air now) [Echo effect)

Verse 1
I been down
I been hurt before
I'm ok, I'm ok
(Hands in the air, Hands in the air)
Cause I know
Trouble never last for always
I may be down, but I'm coming up

Chorus

Verse 2
You are my joy
Peace I've found
I'm ok, I'm ok
(Hands in the air, Hands in the air)
Cause I know
Trouble don't last always
I may be down, I'm coming up

Chorus

Verse 3
I'm emotional
But I'm wise enough to know
(Hands in the air, Hands in the air)
When the sun don't shine
Doesn't mean he's let you go
I may be down I'm coming up

Chorus
Track Name: Luke Cage
I promise you, I said that I could never play the fool
The chains are broken now the jokes on you, Hi-Five (Hi-Five)
Turns out the soul you're after is bulletproof, yeah bulletproof
Running I could barely crawl, my back was against the wall
Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe (You washed)
White as snow (3x)
All my sins you washed white as snow, white as snow
My soul is bulletproof
My soul is bulletproof

Nothing can separate us from you love and grace
Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe (You washed)
White as snow (3x)
All my sins you washed white as snow, white as snow
My soul is bulletproof
My soul is bulletproof
