The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

Behind that Door (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)


My hand is on the knob
Behind that door is You
All the confusion, pain
All about You
It makes me blue
Dying debris crumbled
This relationship
My heart sliced
Diced dreams gone
Behind that door is You
All my soul, dead
All about You
It makes me blue
So why should I open it?

The End of the Tunnel (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

Let's light a match
We still have oxygen
Look forward
The end of the tunnel
More light pierces 
Through darkness
Through war 
The light perseveres

Let's crawl out quickly
We still have life
Look forward 
Don't look behind you
It's just darkness calling
Through past
Through pain
The light perseveres

Let's stand up now
We still have each other
Look forward
The end of the tunnel
Freedom glistens from the sun
Through strength
Through justice
The light perseveres

Semi-Charmed Life (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

Driving through the rain clouds
Flying so soberly mountain high
I feel like a free verse
A poetic body racing the sun
i'm lower case
God is uppercase
Nature is okay with that
It's my life

Put the “I” in Team” (Louisiana) (Louis Toliver Jr – Swartz, LA)


Louisiana, Louisiana
We put the “I” in team
Louisiana, Louisiana
We can be what we dream

We got the best peeps
We’re the black sheeps
Little Bo Peep creeping
Haters we keep weeping

The biggest party night haven
Just ask the South’s misbehaving
We step up the a mountain
Take a drink from God’s fountain

Louisiana, Louisiana
We put the “I” in team
Louisiana, Louisiana
We can be what we dream
