INFO & LYRICS

EVERY LITTLE THING

When I’m walking beside her

People tell me I’m lucky.

Yes, I know I’m a lucky guy.

I remember the first time

I was lonely without her.

Can’t stop thinking about her now.

Every little thing she does,

She does for me, yeah.

And you know the things she does,

She does for me

When I’m with her I’m happy

Just to know that she loves me.

Yes, I know that she loves me now.

There is one thing I’m sure of,

I will love her forever.

For I know love will never die.

Every little thing she does,

She does for me, yeah.

And you know the things she does,

She does for me

Every little thing she does,

She does for me, yeah.

And you know the things she does,

She does for me

Every little thing.

SWEETNESS

She brings the sunshine to a rainy afternoon;

She puts the sweetness in, stirs it with a spoon.

She watches for my moods, never brings me down;

She puts the sweetness in, all around.

She knows just what to say to make me feel so good inside.

And when I’m all alone I feel I don’t want to hide, hide, hide.

Today she brought me in, told me where she’d been;

She put my mind at rest, put the sweetness in.

I’ll ask her for some time to go and look around;

She puts the sweetness in with a sound.

She knows just what to say to make a sunny day.

And when I’m all alone I really don’t feel that way.

Tell me, how would you feel with no world of your own and nobody to

hold?

I just can’t see the way; I’m so glad it’s today and you’re here, you’re here.

She brings the sunshine to a rainy afternoon;

She puts the sweetness in, stirs it with a spoon.

She watches for my moods, never brings me down;

She puts the sweetness in, all around.

She knows just what to say to make me feel so good inside.

And when I’m all alone I really don’t feel that way.

Oh how I need her so,

I know she’ll never go. Doo doo doo doot n doo.

She’ll never leave me, believe me, no. Doo doo doo doot n doo.

She’ll never go, no no no no no no no no no no no no.

SURVIVAL

Sunshine is creeping in and somewhere in a field a life begins,

An egg too proud to rape the beginning of a shape of things to come,

That starts the run, life has begun, fly fast the gun.

The Mother flew too late and life within the egg was left to fate,

not really knowing how the world outside would take it when it came,

and life’s the same for things we aim, are we to blame?

Don’t doubt the fact that there’s life within you,

yesterday’s endings will tomorrow’s life give you,

all that dies, dies for a reason,

to put its strength into the Season,

Survival, Survival,

They take away as we give,

The livings right to live,

the livings right to know.

The egg breaks all is out, the crawling bird begins to scream and shout,

Where is the parent bird, a loneliness arose and heard its name-

ring in for life begins, survival win, survivals sin.

So soon the evening comes with it runs the aching

fear of hate could Someone still remain who thinks he

still could gain by escaping fate? it’s much too late,

don’t underrate, appreciate.

And we’re all going

And we’re all going

And we’re all going somewhere!

THEN

And in a time that’s closer

Life will be even bolder then

Souls will be complicated

Life will be consummated then

Hearts will be brought together

Soon in our minds forever then

As long as we see

There’s only us who can change it

Only us to rearrange it

At the start of a new kind of day

Love is the only answer

Hate is the root of cancer then

Truth is just for the being

And there’s the sight for seeing then

Thoughts will be thought together

Soon in our minds forever then

As long as we see

There’s only us who can change it

Only us to rearrange it

At the start of a new kind of day

And in a time that’s closer

Life will be even bolder then

Love is the only answer

Hate is the root of cancer then

Thoughts will be thought together

Soon in our minds forever then

SWEET DREAMS

Sweet dreams can solve the future,

Sweet dreams provide the past.

Sweet things within your makeup;

These things will always last,

These things will make

Sweet dreams of conversation,

Sweet dreams of love affection.

Sweet words within your makeup;

Sweet words of things to

Come on and write your letter,

You know it will be better anyhow.

You’re gonna laugh again,

You’re gonna smile again,

You’re gonna love again.

Sweet dreams are born inside you,

Sweet dreams are born to last.

Sweet thoughts within your makeup;

These thoughts will always last,

These thoughts will always last.

Come on and write your letter,

You know it will be better anyhow.

You’re gonna laugh again,

You’re gonna smile again,

You’re gonna love again.

Sweet dreams can solve the future,

Sweet dreams provide the past.

Sweet dreams can solve the future,

Sweet dreams provide the past.

ASTRAL TRAVELLER

And in the ruins of the balloon

Stood a man with glasses held high

Wondering when to do it again

Have another fly into the sky

Somewhere flying high

Astral traveller

Leaving without her

Wandering where lights go

Leave out the body load

Once in the air, people who dare

Get a great respect in being

Heavenly flight, wondrous night

And all the sights worth seeing

Just believe in

Astral traveller

Leaving without her

Wandering where lights go

Leave out the body load

Once in the air, people who dare

Get a great respect in being

Heavenly flight, wondrous night

And all the sights worth seeing

Just believe in

Astral traveller

Leaving without her

Wandering where lights go

Leave out the body load

TIME AND A WORD

In the morning when you rise,

Do you open up your eyes, see what I see?

Do you see the same things ev’ry day?

Do you think of a way to start the day

Getting things in proportion?

Spread the news and help the world go ’round.

Have you heard of a time that will help us get it together again?

Have you heard of the word that will stop us going wrong?

Well, the time is near and the word you’ll hear

When you get things in perspective.

Spread the news and help the word go round.

There’s a time and the time is now and it’s right for me,

It’s right for me, and the time is now.

There’s a word and the word is love and it’s right for me,

It’s right for me, and the word is love.

Have you heard of a time that will help get it together again?

Have you heard of the word that will stop us going wrong?

Well, the time is near and the word you’ll hear

When you get things in perspective.

Spread the news and help the word go round.

There’s a time and the time is now and it’s right for me,

It’s right for me, and the time is now.

There’s a word and the word is love and it’s right for me,

It’s right for me, and the word is love.

DEAR FATHER

Here are the books of Luke

You need them to open the seed

To see what goes on in the world

Here in my mind

Catch the wind and hold on tight

To what we’ll find

And hear what goes on in the world

Here is all you see

Everything is made for you

From me

If there’s anything you’d like to say

That could help me in any way

‘Cause I’ve been waiting for so long for you to come along

Help me on that day

When you take over all the things

Heaven has made for you

Is there anything you think you should know

Is there anything before I go?

Dear Father

I’m hungry, I’m cold

Dear Father

Feeling terribly old

Dear Father

I don’t think I can see

I’m not feeling good like I think I should

They’re on their own, needing a face, a place

Hope and mind, a home

To see what goes on in the world

They’re who you need

To show them why they’re wrong, oh why indeed

We need to go on in the world

Here is all you see

Everything is made for you

From me

If there’s any complication that

You’d like to talk over with me about

‘Cause I’ve been waiting for so long for you to come along

We could work it all out

When you take over all the things

Heaven has made for you

Is there anything you think you should know

Is there anything before I go?

Dear Father

You must be putting me on

Dear Father

‘Cause most of their minds are gone

Dear Father

They will not understand me

I’m not feeling good like I think I should

Dear Father

Can I give it a miss

Dear Father

‘Cause I’m not ready for this

Dear Father

I don’t think I can see

I’m not feeling good like I think I should

Dear Father

Won’t you leave me alone

Dear Father

Won’t you let me go home

Dear Father

I don’t think I could see

Dear Father

Lord, they’d crucify me

Dear Father

I just couldn’t do that

Dear Father

‘Cause that’s not where it’s at now

YOURS IS NO DISGRACE

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face.

Caesar’s palace, morning glory, silly human race,

On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place,

If the summer change to winter, yours is no disgrace.

Battleships confide in me and tell me where you are,

Shining, flying, purple wolfhound, show me where you are,

Lost in summer, morning, winter, travel very far,

Lost in musing circumstances, that’s just where you are.

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face.

Caesar’s palace, morning glory, silly human race,

On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place,

If the summer change to winter, yours is no,

Yours is no disgrace.

Yours is no disgrace.

Yours is no disgrace.

Death defying, mutilated armies scatter the earth,

Crawling out of dirty holes, their morals, their morals disappear.

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face.

Caesar’s palace, morning glory, silly human, silly human race,

On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place,

If the summer change to winter, yours is no,

Yours is no disgrace.

PERPETUAL CHANGE

I see the cold mist in the night

And watch the hills roll out of sight.

I watch in ev’ry single way,

Inside out, outside in, ev’ry day.

The sun can warm the coldest dawn

And move the movement on the lawn.

I learn in ev’ry single day,

Inside out, outside in, ev’ry way.

And there you are,

Making it up but you’re sure that it is a star,

And boy you’ll see

It’s an illusion shining down in front of me,

And then you’ll say

Even in time we shall control the day,

When what you’ll see

Deep inside base controlling you and me.

And one peculiar point I see,

As one of many ones of me.

As truth is gathered, I rearrange,

Inside out, outside in, inside out, outside in,

Perpetual change.

And there you are,

Saying we have the moon, so now the stars,

When all you see

Is near disaster gazing down on you and me,

And there you’re standing,

Saying we have the whole world in our hands,

When all you’ll see,

Deep inside the world’s controlling you and me.

You’ll see perpetual change.

You’ll see perpetual change.

And there you are,

Making it up but you’re sure that it is a star,

And boy you’ll see

It’s an illusion shining down in front of me,

And then you’ll say

Even in time we shall control the day,

When what you’ll see

Deep inside base controlling you and me.

As mist and sun are both the same,

We look on as pawns of their game.

They move to testify the day,

Inside out, outside in, inside out, outside in,

All of the way.

STARSHIP TROOPER

Sister Bluebird flying high above,

Shine your wings forward to the sun.

Hide the myst’ries of life on your way.

Though you’ve seen them, please don’t say a word.

What you don’t know, I have never heard.

Starship Trooper, go sailing on by,

Catch my soul, catch the very night.

Hide the moment from my eager eyes.

Though you’ve seen them, please don’t tell a soul.

What you can’t see, can’t be very whole.

Speak to me of summer, long winters longer than time can remember,

Setting up of other roads, travel on in old accustomed ways.

I still remember the talks by the water, the proud sons and daughters that,

In the knowledge of the land, spoke to me in sweet accustomed ways.

Mother life, hold firmly on to me.

Catch my knowledge higher than the day.

Lose as much as only you can show.

Though you’ve seen them, please don’t say a word.

What I don’t know, I have never shared.

Loneliness is a power that we possess to give or take away forever.

All I know can be shown by your acceptance of the fact there shown before you.

Take what I say in a diff’rent way and it’s easy to see that this is all confusion.

As I see a new day in me, I can also show if you and you may follow.

Speak to me of summer, long winters longer than time can remember,

Setting up of other roads, travel on in old accustomed ways.

I still remember the talks by the water, the proud sons and daughters that,

In the knowledge of the land, spoke to me in sweet accustomed ways

I’VE SEEN ALL GOOD PEOPLE

I’ve seen all good people turn their heads each day

so satisfied I’m on my way.

I’ve seen all good people turn their heads each day

so satisfied I’m on my way.

Take a straight and stronger course to the corner of your life.

Make the white queen run so fast she hasn’t got time to make you a wife.

‘Cause it’s time, it’s time in time with your time and its news is captured

For the queen to use.

Move me on to any black square,

Use me any time you want,

Just remember that the goal

Is for us to capture all we want, anywhere,

Yea, yea, yea.

Don’t surround yourself with yourself,

Move on back two squares,

Send an instant karma to me,

Initial it with loving care

Don’t surround

Yourself.

‘Cause it’s time, it’s time in time with your time and its news is captured

For the queen to use.

Diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit didda.

Don’t surround yourself with yourself.

Don’t surround yourself with yourself, Don’t surround yourself.

Move on back two squares,

Send an instant karma to me, Send an instant

Initial it with loving care Karma to me. Don’t surround Yourself.

‘Cause it’s time, it’s time in time with your time and its news is captured

For the queen to use.

Diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit diddit didda.

‘Cause it’s time, it’s time in time with your time and its news is captured.

I’ve seen all good people turn their heads each day so satisfied I’m on my way.

ROUNDABOUT

I’ll be the round about

The words will make you out ‘n’ out

You change the day your way

Call it morning driving through the sound and

In and out the valley

The music dance and sing

They make the children really ring

I spend the day your way

Call it morning driving through the sound and

In and out the valley

In and around the lake

Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there

One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see you

Ten true summers we’ll be there and laughing too

Twenty four before my love you’ll see

I’ll be there with you

I will remember you

Your silhouette will charge the view

Of distance atmosphere

Call it morning driving through the sound and

Even in the valley

In and around the lake

Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there

One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see you

Ten true summers we’ll be there and laughing too

Twenty four before my love you’ll see

I’ll be there with you

Along the drifting cloud the eagle searching

Down on the land

Catching the swirling wind the sailor sees

The rim of the land

The eagle’s dancing wings create as weather

Spins out of hand

Go closer hold the land feel partly no more

Than grains of sand

We stand to lose all time a thousand answers

By in our hand

Nex to your deeper fears we stand

Surrounded by a million years

I’ll be the roundabout

The words will make you out ‘n’ out

I’ll be the roundabout

The words will make you out ‘n’ out

In and around the lake

Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there

One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see you

Ten true summers we’ll be there and laughing too

Twenty four before my love you’ll see

I’ll be there with you

I’ll be the roundabout

The words will make you out ‘n’ out

I spend the day your way

Call it morning driving through the sound and

In and out the valley

In and around the lake

Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there

One mile over we’ll be there and we’ll see you

Ten true summers we’ll be there and laughing too

Twenty four before my love you’ll see

I’ll be there with you

SOUTH SIDE OF THE SKY

A river a mountain to be crossed

The sunshine in mountains sometimes lost

Around the south side so cold that we cried

Were we ever colder on that day a million

Miles away

It seemed from all eternity

Move forward was my friend’s only cry

In deeper to somewhere we could lie

And rest for the the day with cold in the way

Were we ever colder on that day a million

Miles away

It seemed from all eternity

The moments seemed lost in all the noise

A snow storm a stimulating voice

Of warmth of the sky of warmth when you die

Were we ever warmer on that day a million

Miles away

We seemed from all eternity

The sunshine in mountains sometimes lost

The river can disregard the cost

And melt in the sky warmth when you die

Were we ever warmer on that day a million miles away

We seemed from all of eternity

AMERICA

Let us be lovers,

We'll marry our fortunes together.

I've got some real estate

Here in my bag.

So we bought a pack of cigarettes,

And Mrs. Wagner's pies,

And walked off

To look for America.

Kathy I said,

As we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh,

Michigan seems like a dream to me now,

It took me four days

To hitch-hike from Saginaw.

I've come to look for America.

Laughing on the bus,

Playing games with the faces,

She said the man in the gabardine suit

Was a spy.

I said, "Be careful,

His bow tie is really a camera."

Toss me a cigarette,

I think there's one in my raincoat.

We smoked the last one

an hour ago.

So I looked at the scenery,

She read her magazine;

And the moon rose over an open field.

Kathy, I'm lost I said,

Thought I knew she was sleeping.

I'm empty and aching and

I don't know why.

Counting the cars

On the New Jersey Turnpike.

They've all come

To look for America,

All come to look for America,

All come to look for America.

CLOSE TO THE EDGE

A seasoned witch could call you from the depths of your disgrace,

And rearrange your liver to the solid mental grace,

And achieve it all with music that came quickly from afar,

Then taste the fruit of man recorded losing all against the hour.

And assessing points to nowhere, leading ev’ry single one.

A dewdrop can exalt us like the music of the sun,

And take away the plain in which we move,

And choose the course you’re running.

Down at the edge, round by the corner,

Not right away, not right away.

Close to the edge, down by a river,

Not right away, not right away.

Crossed the line around the changes of the summer,

Reaching out to call the color of the sky.

Passed around a moment clothed in mornings faster than we see.

Getting over all the time I had to worry,

Leaving all the changes far from far behind.

We relieve the tension only to find out the master’s name.

Down at the end, round by the corner.

Close to the edge, just by a river.

Seasons will pass you by.

I get up, I get down.

Now that it’s all over and done,

Now that you find, now that you’re whole.

My eyes convinced, eclipsed with the younger moon attained with love.

It changed as almost strained amidst clear manna from above.

I crucified my hate and held the word within my hand.

There’s you, the time, the logic, or the reasons we don’t understand.

Sad courage claimed the victims standing still for all to see,

As armoured movers took approached to overlook the sea.

There since the cord, the license, or the reasons we understood will be.

Down at the edge, close by a river.

Close to the edge, round by the corner.

Close to the end, down by the corner.

Down at the edge, round by the river.

Sudden problems shouldn’t take away the startled memory.

All in all, the journey takes you all the way.

As apart from any reality that you’ve ever seen and known.

Guessing problems only to deceive the mention,

Passing paths that climb halfway into the void.

As we cross from side to side, we hear the total mass retain.

Down at the edge, round by the corner.

Close to the end, down by a river.

Seasons will pass you by.

I get up, I get down.

In her white lace, you could clearly see the lady sadly looking.

Saying that she’d take the blame

For the crucifixion of her own domain.

I get up,

I get down,

I get up,

I get down.

Two million people barely satisfy.

Two hundred women watch one woman cry, too late.

The eyes of honesty can achieve.

How many millions do we deceive each day?

I get up, I get down.

I get up, I get down.

In charge of who is there in charge of me.

Do I look on blindly and say I see the way?

The truth is written all along the page.

How old will I be before I come of age for you?

I get up, I get down.

I get up, I get down.

I get up, I get down.

The time between the notes relates the color to the scenes.

A constant vogue of triumphs dislocate man, it seems.

And space between the focus shape ascend knowledge of love.

As song and chance develop time, lost social temp’rance rules above.

Ah, ah.

Then according to the man who showed his outstretched arm to space,

He turned around and pointed, revealing all the human race.

I shook my head and smiled a whisper, knowing all about the place.

On the hill we viewed the silence of the valley,

Called to witness cycles only of the past.

And we reach all this with movements in between the said remark.

Close to the edge, down by the river.

Down at the end, round by the corner.

Seasons will pass you by,

Now that it’s all over and done,

Called to the seed, right to the sun.

Now that you find, now that you’re whole.

Seasons will pass you by,

I get up, I get down.

THE REVEALING SCIENCE OF GOD (DANCE OF THE DAWN)

Dawn of light lying between a silence and sold sources

Chased amid fusions of wonder

In moments hardly seen forgotten

Coloured in pastures of chance dancing leaves cast spells of challenge

Amused but real in thought, we fled from the sea whole

Dawn of thought transferred through moments of days undersearching earth

Revealing corridors of time provoking memories

Disjointed but with purpose

Craving penetrations offer links with the self instructors sharp and tender love

As we took to the air a picture of distance

Dawn of our power we amuse redescending as fast as misused expression

As only to teach love as to reveal passion chasing late into corners

And we danced from the ocean

Dawn of love sent within us colours of awakening among the many wont to follow

Only tunes of a different age

As the links span our endless caresses for the freedom of life everlasting

Talk to the sunlight caller

Soft summer mover distance mine

Called out a tune but I never saw the face

Heard but not replaced

I ventured to talk but I never lost my place

Cast out a spell rendered for the light of day

Lost in lights array

I ventured to see as the sound began to play

What happened to this song we once knew so well

Signed promise for moments caught within the spell

I must have waited all my life for this

Moment moment

The future poised with the splendour just begun

The light we were as one

And crowded through the curtains of liquid into sun

And for a moment when our world had filled the skies

Magic turned our eyes

To feast on the treasure set for our strange device

What happened to wonders we once knew so well

Did we forget what happened, surely we can tell

We must have waited all our lives for this

Moment moment moment

Starlight movement

Reasons

Release forward

Tallest rainbow

Sun shower seasons

Life flower reasons

They move fast, they tell me

But I just can’t believe that I can feel it

There’s someone to tell you

Amid the challenge we look around in unison with you

Getting over overhanging trees, let them rape the forest

Thoughts would send our fusion clearly to be home

Getting over wars we do not mean, or so it seems so clearly

Sheltered with our passion clearly to be home

They move fast, they tell me

But I just can’t believe they really mean to

There’s someone to tell you

And I just can’t believe our song will leave you

Skyline teacher

Warland seeker

Send out poison

Cast iron leader

And through the rhythm of moving slowly

Sent through the rhythm work out the story

Move over glory to sons of old fighters past

Young Christians see it from the beginning

Old people feel it, that’s what they’re saying

Move over glory to sons of old fighters past

They move fast, they tell me

But I just can’t believe they really mean to

There’s someone to tell you

A course towards a universal season

Getting over overhanging trees, let them rape the forest

They might stand and leave them clearly to be home

Getting over wars they do not mean, we charm the movement suffers

Call out all our memories clearly to be home

We’ve moved fast, we need love

A part we offer is our only freedom

What happened to this song we once knew so well

Signed promise for moments caught within the spell

We must have waited all our lives for this

Moment moment

Past present movers moments we’ll process the future,

But only through Him we know

Send flowered rainbows

A piece apart chased flowers of the dark and lights of songs

To follow and show all we feel for and know of

Cast round

You seekers of the truth aceepting that reason will relive

And breathe and hope and chase and love

For you and you and you

SIBERIAN KHATRU

Sing, bird of prey

Beauty begins at the foot of you, do you believe the manner?

Gold stainless nail

Torn through the distance of man as they regard the summit

Even Siberia goes through the motions, hold out and hold up

Hold down the window (outbound, river)

Hold out the morning that comes into view (bluetail, tailfly)

River running right on over my head

How does she sing?

Who holds the ring and ring and you will find me coming?

Cold reigning king

Hold all the secrets from you as they produce the movement

Even Siberia goes through the motions, hold out and hold up

Hold down the window (outbound, river)

Hold out the morning that comes into view (bluetail, tailfly)

River running right over the outboard, river

Bluetail, tailfly

Luther in time

Dood’ndoodit, dah, d’t-d’t-dah

Hold down the window

Hold out the morning that comes into view

Warm side, the tower

Green leaves reveal the heart spoken Khatru

Gold stainless nail

Torn through the distance of man as they regard the summit

Cold reigning king

Shelter the women that sing as they produce the movement

River running right on over

Then over my head outboard, river

Bluetail, tailfly

Luther in time

Suntower asking

Cover, lover

June cast, moon fast

As one changes

Heart gold, leaver

Soul mark, mover

Christian, changer

Called out, saviour

Moon gate, climber

Turn round, glider

LONG DISTANCE RUNAROUND

Long distance run around

long time waiting to feel the sound

I still remember the dream there

I still remember the time you said goodbye

did we really tell lies

letting in the sunshine

did we really count to one hundred

Cold summer listening

hot colour melting the anger to stone

I still remember the time you said goodbye

did we really tell lies

did we really count to one hundred

GATES OF DELIRIUM

Stand and fight we do consider

Reminded of an inner pact between us

That’s seen as we go

And ride there

In motion

To fields in debts of honor

Defending

Stand the marchers soaring talons,

Peaceful lives will not deliver freedom,

Fighting we know,

Destroy oppression

The point to reaction

As leaders look to you

Attacking

Choose and renounce throwing chains to the floor.

Kill or be killing faster sins correct the flow.

Casting giant shadows off vast penetrating force

To alter via the war that seen

As friction spans the spirits wrath ascending to redeem.

Wars that shout in screams of anguish,

Power spent passion bespoils our soul receiver,

Surely we know.

In glory

We rise to offer,

Create our freedom,

A word we utter,

A word.

Words cause our banner, victorious our day.

Will silence be promised as violence display?

The curse increased we fight the pow’r

And live by it by day.

Our gods awake in thunderous roars,

And guide the leaders hand in paths of glory to the cause.

Listen, should we fight forever

Knowing as we do know fear destroys?

Listen, should we leave our children?

Listen, our lives stare in silence;

Help us now.

Listen, your friends have been broken,

They tell us of your poison; now we know.

Kill them, give them as they give us.

Slay them, burn their children’s laughter

On to hell.

The fist will run, grasp metal to gun.

The spirit sings in crashing tones,

We gain the battle drum.

Our cries will shrill, the air will moan and crash into the dawn.

The pen won’t stay the demon’s wings,

The hour approaches pounding out the Devil’s sermon.

Soon, oh soon the light,

Pass within and soothe this endless night

And wait here for you,

Our reason to be here.

Soon, oh soon the time,

All we move to gain will reach and calm;

Our heart is open,

Our reason to be here.

Long ago, set into rhyme.

Soon, oh soon the light,

Ours to shape for all time,

Ours the right;

The sun will lead us,

Our reason to be here.

Soon, oh soon the light,

Ours to shape for all time,

Ours the right;

The sun will lead us,

Our reason to be here.

TO BE OVER

We go sailing down the calming streams,

Drifting endlessly by the bridge.

To be over, we will see, to be over.

Do not suffer through the game of chance that plays;

Always doors to lock away your dreams.

Think it over, time will heal your fear, think it over.

Balance the thoughts that release within you.

Childlike soul dreamer.

One journey, one to seek and see in ev’ry light

Do open true pathways away.

Carrying closer,

Go gently, holding doors will open ev’ry way

You wander true pathways away.

After all your soul will still surrender.

After all don’t doubt your part,

Be ready to be loved.

GOING FOR THE ONE

Get the idea

Cross around the track

When you leap on the flank

Of a thoroughbred racing chaser

Get the feel

As the rhythm flows

Would you like to go

And shoot the mountain masses?

And here you stand no taller than the grass seas

And should you really chase so hard

The truth of sport plays rings around you

Going for the one

Going for the one

Get in the way

As the tons of water

Racing with you

Crash into the rudders

Once at the start

Can you gamble that

You really surely

Really mean to finish

After seeing all your sense of fear diminish

As you treat danger as a pure connection

As you throw away all misconceptions

Going for the one

Going for the one

Going for-ward to

Listen in time

Taken so high

To touch, to move

Listen to life

Touching, touch time

Travel, twilight

Taken so high

Roundabout, sounding out

Love me so

Now the verses I’ve sang

Don’t add much weight

To the story in my head

So I’m thinking I should go and write a punchline

But they’re so hard to find

In my cosmic mind

So I think I’ll take

A look out of the window

When I think about you

I don’t feel low

Should I really chase so hard?

The truth of sport plays rings around you

Going for the one

Going for the one

Going for-ward to

Listen in time

Taken so high

To touch, to move

Listen to life

Touching, touch time

Travel, twilight

Taken so high

Taking your time

Turn on to love

Turnstile to one

Tender timing

Rocking, rolling

Listen in time

Taken so high

To touch, to move

Listen to life

Touching, touch time

Travel, twilight

Taken so high

Taking your time

Turn on to love

Turnstile to one

Tender timing

Rocking, rolling

Turn on to love

Turnstile to one

Tender timing

Rocking, rolling

Moments decide…

Moments delight…

Moments invite…

Talk about sending love…

TURN OF THE CENTURY

Realising a form out of stone,

Set hands moving.

Roan shaped his heart,

Through his working hands.

Worked to mold his passion into clay,

Like the sun.

In his room, his lady,

She would dance and sing so completely.

“So be still,” he now cries,

“I have time, oh let clay transform thee so.”

In the deep cold of night,

Winter calls, he cries “Don’t deny me!”

For his lady, deep her illness.

Time has caught her,

And will for all reasons take her.

In the still light of dawn, she dies.

Helpless hands soul revealing.

Like leaves we touch, we learn.

We once knew the story.

As winter calls he will starve,

All but to see the stone be life.

Now Roan, no more tears.

Set to work his strength,

So transformed him.

Realizing a form out of stone,

His work so absorbed him.

Could she hear him?

Could she see him?

All aglow was his room,

Dazed in this light.

He would touch her,

He would hold her.

Laughing as they danced,

Highest colors touching others.

Did her eyes at the turn of the century,

Tell me plainly.

How we’ll meet, how we’ll love,

Oh, let life so transform me.

Like leaves we touch, we dance.

We once knew the story.

As autumn called and we both,

Remembered all those many years ago.

I’m sure we know.

Was the sign in the day with a touch,

As I kiss your fingers.

We walk hands in the sun,

Memories when we’re young,

Love lingers so.

Was it sun through the haze,

That made all your looks,

As warm as moonlight?

As a pearl deep your eyes,

Tears have flown away,

All the same light.

Did her eyes at the turn of the century,

Tell me plainly.

When we meet, how we’ll look,

As we smile time will leave me clearly.

Like leaves we touch, we see,

We will know the story.

As autumn calls we’ll both remember,

All those many years ago.

WONDROUS STORIES

I awoke this morning

love laid me down by a river.

Drifting I turned on upstream

Bound for my forgiver.

In the giving of my eyes to see your face.

Sound did silence me

leaving no trace.

I beg to leave, to hear your wonderous stories.

Beg to hear your wonderous stories.

He spoke of lands not far

or lands they were in his mind.

Of fusion captured high

where reason captured his time.

In no time at all he took me to the gate.

In haste I quickly checked the time.

if I was late I had to leave to hear your wonderous stories.

Had to hear your wonderous stories.

Hearing

Hearing

Hearing your wonderous stories.

Hearing your wonderous stories.

It is no lie I can see deeply into the future.

Imagine everything

You’re close

and were you there to stand

so cautiously at first and then so high.

As he spoke my spirit climbed into the sky.

I bid it to return

to hear your wonderous stories.

Return to hear your wonderous stories.

Hearing,

Hearing,

Hearing,

Hearing,

Hearing,

DON’T KILL THE WHALE

You’re first

I’m last

You’re thirst

I’m asked to justify

Killing our last heaven beast

Don’t hunt the whale

In beauty

Vision

Do we

Offer much

If we reason with destiny, gonna lose our touch

Don’t kill the whale

Rejoice

They sing

They worship their own space

In a moment of love, they will die for their grace

Don’t kill the whale

If time will allow

We will judge all who came

In the wake of our new age to stand for the frail

Don’t kill the whale

RELEASE, RELEASE

Have you heard before, hit it out, don’t look back

Rock is the medium of our generation

Stand for every right, kick it out, hear you shout

For the right of all of creation

We’ve heard before, but we just don’t seem to move

The pressure’s on is there lack of concentration

Power defy our needs, lift us up, show us now

Show us how amid the rack of confusion

Drive in thoughts of high, satisfy, in a plan

Set it out for all to understand it

We’ve heard before, but we just don’t seem to move

The pressure’s on is there lack of concentration

Lost and wondering, maybe, how it is

Seems to me, it’s as simple as this

No matter, where you go, you’re going to find

You won’t see me in front, but you can’t leave me behind

Power at first to the needs of each others days

Simple to lose in the void sounds of anarchy’s calling ways

All unaccounted for in the craziness of power

In the craziness

Release all, release all, or abandon your hope for your brother

Release all, release all, or abandon your hope for your sister

Release, release, enough controllers

Show some signs of appreciated loyalties

Release, release, enough controllers

Show some signs of appreciated loyalties

Straight jacket, freedom’s march, is it all, far beyond

Our reason of understanding

Campaign everything, anti-right, anti-left

Anticipate the love of creation

Stand for every right

Kick it out, hear you shout

Further the right

Further the right

Further the light

Of all of creation

Power at first to the needs of each other’s days

Simple to lose in the void of anarchy’s calling ways

All unaccounted for in the craziness of power

In the craziness

Release all, release all, or abandon your hope for your brother

Release all, release all, or abandon your hope for your sister

Release, release

Release, release

Release, release

Release, release

ARRIVING UFO

I could not take it, oh, so seriously, really

When you called and said you’d seen a UFO

But then it dawned on me the message in writing

Spelt out a meeting never dreamed of before

I looked out in the night

Strange and startling

Was this voice of time just saying

There’s got to be a linking of everyone

Got to be a center

It all comes flooding back

Arriving through eons of times

Immortal power of the future to behold

Vessels of a different impression

None that we could ever hope to have known

So look out in the night

Once they arrive

On that perennial light

Impress a bolder empire of energy

In the ships we see

The coming of outer space

You say there’s no reason to conjure

With the force as it has been known to be seen

You say I’m a fool, a believer

Put your feet on the earth, it is green

But look out in the night

Wait for they arrive

To start such sciences anew

Here it is the coming of outer space

Such a pure delight

The coming of outer space

Look out, look out

Look out, look out

Look out, look out

Look out

RICHARD

Richard set to sail the seven seas

With the power held within him he could feel the need

To reach out far and touch on all who came

To the resting place named Overon where he hath been

There you are

Take care my love

I’ll be thinking all about you

With the morning stars

There you are

Take care my love

I’ll be thinking all about you

With the morning stars

Richard fought the seven wars of old

As around him his foot soldiers cheered with hearts of gold

He rode amongst them shouting for the king

Didn’t stop to think of ages past where he hath been

There you are

Take care my love

I’ll be thinking of the time we shared

Amid the morning stars

There you are

Take care my love

I’ll be thinking of the time we shared

Amid the morning stars

Richard never scaled to higher dreams

If a leader has it in for you, can you succeed

And though his passion kept us all afloat

There’s no room for a deciever in the union boat

There you are

Take care my love

I’ll singing songs about you

Til the morning, til the morning comes along

Richard dreamt of seeing but believed

In the gathering light a paradise he once concieved

To carry forth along the seven seas

With the light to a tree of Overon he set us free

TANGO

I just want to tell you everything

A quality of days of days of old

But the story has a sense of

Timelessness and glory

‘Twas in the golden days of

That which Lord Icoloram [??]

A lord of might, a king of justice

All in all, a gentle master

More

A vision he had whilst fighting in a war

There appeared three angels of the sword

“Bring out the living if you have

Bring out the hungry, let them feed

Bring out the blind and let them see

Bring out the soldiers of the free”

The lord of mighty Equitor

Began decision change of

Change within his court

Announced formation of the dead

From all the wars they had been led

To rise and march

To rise and march

The lord of mighty Equitor Icoloram

Built forth an army in the spirit of men

The lord of mighty Equitor Icoloram

Built for the justice of millions that have died

In the wars gone by

Ten million arose

And came from all the battlefields

In ten thousand wars that had been fought

Bringing forth a multitude of hosts

Astride a sharp white horse

A ghost, the Reaper, shine in viscious fright

Oh Reaper, king of night

Better they rode and charged down the graves

At the flight of the insane

As one, over land they plundered

This ghastly army has ever proclaimed

Ghost of Intrencha [?] in portion

Of human waste and had you the gleam

The day was to come

The day was to come

It was to come reckoning

The day of judgement was at hand

As it will be, so it will be

The lord of mighty Equitor Icoloram

Built forth the army in the spirit of men

This day the fate of man

Let no man put asunder

All things will pass

And peace will win forever

The lord of mighty Equitor Icoloram

Built forth an army in the spirit of men

Days gone by, days gone by

So that day, the ancient of times

Appeared and spread, answers divide

Lo! it passed, as all in one accord now

Throw off the chains[?? change],

Torn with the lord

No more wars

My tears

Were

Tears

Of

Joy

NEVER DONE BEFORE

All good will feel the right of way,

and music be this act to play,

believers think soon man will turn the key.

In the old their summer fails to show,

in the young their passion seems to grow,

if your love is right the rest is harmony.

You can hold love in your hand,

you can hold love in you heart,

you can hold love like you’ve never done before;

You can hold on to your dreams,

shine your love the way it seems,

we are always one as we are one,

as we are harmony.

CROSSFIRE

Julie’s sick and tired of her job n’all the reasons lately

She took it out on God and laid her soul to hell and let the baby die

Julie’s child was born without a need or a reason for being

She took it as a message from a real and a distant life

Shirley gets to help her with the child though

she’s strung out on crack time

Shirley never knew what it was to be held in real love

Together getting high to get to mess up their night

Anything to get up so they’re losing their mind

Just to get high, breking out from this life, gotta get them a drug to get

higher

Julie gets to walking out and drags the child, says “come on”

How we’ll walk in the dark of the morning

Cars screaming round the corner, drugged to heaven,

guns are loaded,

locked in vengeance

Who shoots the child?

Watching in the ghetto is the spine and the cruel of the gang life

Sign language of the get go you get in the gang life

Fear the only law, fear is all we hear about,

Feed us in the raw, fear is all we fear about

Listen, get up, quickly get up, get up

It’s the answer to punishment given you

Don’t give us reasons,

Caught in the crossfire dying

God give us reasons,

Don’t give a reason, God give a reason

Why lay dead a child’s life?

MACHINE MESSIAH

Run down a street

Where the glass shows

That summer has gone

Age, in the doorways

Resenting the pace of the dawn.

All of them standing in line

All of them waiting for time.

From time, the great healer,

The machine-Messiah

Is born.

Cables that carry the life

To the cities we build

Threads that link diamonds of life

To the satanic mills

Ah, to see in every way

That we feel it every

Day, and know that

Maybe we’ll change

Offered the chance

To finally unlearn our lessons

And alter our stance.

Friends make their way into systems of chance

[reply - friends make their way of escape into systems of chance]

Escape to freedom I need to be there

Waiting and watching, the tables are turning

I’m waiting and watching

I need to be there.

I care to see them walk away

And, to be there when they say

They will return.

Machine, Messiah

The mindless

Search for a higher

Controller

Take me to the fire

And hold me

Show me the strength of your

Singular eye.

History dictating symptoms of ruling romance

Claws at the shores of the water upon which we dance

All of us standing in line

All of us waiting for time

To feel it, all the way

And to be there when they

Say they know that

Maybe we’ll change

Offered the chance

To finally unlearn our lessons

And alter our stance.

Machine, machine Messiah.

Take me into the fire

Hold me, machine Messiah

And show me

The strength of your singular eye.

TEMPUS FUGIT

Born in the night

She would run like a leopard

That freaks at the sight

Of a mind close beside herself

And the nearer I came

How the country would change

She was using the landscape

To hide herself.

More in the mind

Than the body this feeling

A sense at the end

Of a circular line

That is drawn at an angle

I see when I’m with you

To navigate waters and finally answer to-yes.

If you were there you would want to be near me

Innocence, you could hold all the materials

And though nothing would really be living

It would shock Your fall into landing light

In the north sky time flies fast to the morning

The cold of the dawn it meant nothing to us

You were keeping your best situation

An answer to-yes

(Yes, Yes) And the moment I see you

(Yes, Yes) It’s so good to be near you

(Yes, Yes) And the feeling you give me

(Yes, Yes) Makes me want to be with you

(Yes, Yes) From the moment you tell me – yes

If you could see all the roads I have travelled

Towards some unusable last equilibrium

Run like an athlete and die like a dead beaten speed-freak

An answer to all of your answers to-yes

In the north sky time flies faster than morning

The cold of the dawn it meant nothing to us

You were keeping your best situation

An answer to Yes

(Yes, Yes) And the moment I see you

(Yes, Yes) It’s so good to be near you

(Yes, Yes) And the feeling you give me

(Yes, Yes) Makes me want to be with you

(Yes, Yes) If we wait for an answer

(Yes, Yes) Will the silence be broken

(Yes, Yes) Should we wait for an answer

(Yes, Yes) Do we leave it unspoken

Developing words that linger

Through fields of green through open eyes

LEAVE IT

I can feel no sense of measure

No illusions as we take

Refuge in young man’s pleasure

Breaking down the dreams we make

Real

One down one to go

Another town and one more show

Downtown they’re giving away

But she never came back

No phone can take your place

You know what I mean

We have the same intrigue

As a court of kings

Ah leave it

Ah leave it

Two down there you go

McArthur Park in the driving snow

Uptown they’re digging it out

Better lay your claim

Get home you’re not alone

You just broke out of the danger zone

Be there to show your face

On another dreamy day

Ah leave it

Ah leave it

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad

Hello hello heaven

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad

Hello hello heaven

Ah leave it

Ah leave it

I can feel no sense of measure

No illusions as we take

Refuge in young man’s pleasure

Breaking down the dreams we make

Real

Ah leave it

Ah leave it

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad

Hello hello heaven

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad

Hello hello heaven

One down one to go

Another town and one more show

One down one to go

Another town and one more show

Ah leave it

Ah leave it

Ah leave it

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad

Hello hello heaven

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad

Leave it

HOLD ON

Justice to the left of you

Justice to the right

Speak when you are spoken to

Don’t pretend you’re right

This life’s not for living

It’s for fighting and for war

No matter what the truth is

Hold on to what is yours

Jigsaw puzzle traitors

Set to spill the beans

Constitution screw up

Shattering the dreams

Blood flows in the desert

Dark citadels burning too

Watch! Look over your shoulder

This one is strictly for you

Hold on – Hold on

Wait maybe the answer’s

Looking for you

Hold on – Hold on

Wait! Take you time

Think it through

Yes! I can make it through

Hold on – Hold on

Sunshine shine on through

Hold on – Hold on

Sunshine shine on you

See it through

Talk the simple smile

Such platonic eye

How they drown in incomplete capacity

Strangest of them all

When the feeling calls

How we drown in stylistic audacity

Charge the common ground

Round and round and round

We living in gravity

Shake – We shake so hard

How we laugh so loud

When we reach

We believe in eternity

I believe in eternity

Hold on – Hold on

Wait – Take your time

See it through

Hold on – Hold on

Wait – Maybe a chance

Is looking for you

Sunshine shine on through

Sunshine shine on through

Sunshine shine on you

Hold on – Hold on

Hold on – Hold on

Sunshine – Shine on – Shine on you

Sunshine – Shine on through

Sunshine – Shine on – Shine on through

Sunshine – Shine on you

Sunshine – Shine on – Shine on you

Sunshine – Shine on through

Sunshine – Shine on – Shine on through

Sunshine – Shine on you

Hold on – Hold on

Wait – Take your time

See it through

Hold on – Hold on

Wait – Maybe the answer’s looking for you

RHYTHM OF LOVE

Innocence no answer

To your breaking heart

If the situation

Sometimes falls apart

Then in this ecstasy

Your charms are frozen

No emotion falling through your arms

Morning, daydream, time still growing shorter

Take me over lead me to the water

To the rhythm of love

The rhythm of love

The rhythm of love

Why should I escort you

To your secret needs

Climbing up your ladder

I keep falling down

Anyway will do

Anyone will do

When you dance to your darkest tune

Surrounded

As you crawl around the room

Night time fever burning till you’re higher

Take me over lead me through the fire

The rhythm of love

To the rhythm of love

The rhythm of love

To the rhythm of love

Morning daydream midnight fever

Morning daydream midnight fever

Inhibitions keep you from your point of view

Information needing to confuse

In this situation I have found you

In the rhythm of

Morning daydream midnight fever

Morning daydream midnight fever

Rhythm of love

Rhythm of love

To the rhythm of love

Rhythm of love

LOVE WILL FIND A WAY

You wanna get close to me

The feeling so clear

But I need some time to see

Vision through my tear

You wanna get next to me

I need your intrusion

I don’t need to be

Blinded by confusion

Here is my heart

Waiting for you

Here is my soul

I eat at chez nous

Love will find a way

If you want it to

Love will find a way

Love will find a way for me and you

Love will find a way

Love will find a way

Love will find a way

Love will find a way

So you want to get over me

And that’s how you feel

Everything you want to be

Seems so unreal

I want to be all of you

And that’s the confusion

It’s so hard for me

To draw a conclusion

Here is my heart

Waiting for you

Here is my soul

I eat at chez nous

Love will find a way

If you want it to

Love will find a way

Love will find a way

Love will find a way

If you want it to

Love will find a way

Love will find a way

Love will find a way

I believe that there’s a way

If you want it to

Will love find a way

Love will find a way

Will love find a way

Love will find a way

HOLY LAMB (SONG FOR HARMONIC CONVERGENCE)

Holy lamb

See the world we started

Is it so low again

Like a light that’s lost upon the stage

So the more it shines, it goes away

Surely then

See the curtain rising to show us once again

All the magic of the earth and the skies

See the more we find

The more we realize

That every time

See the laws of nature keep telling us like a friend

It’s the spirit of emotion dancing to the wind

High above

High above

So sure inspired again

I can tell a new story now

Can we see through this mask of uncertainty

Surely now

How can it be so hard when all there is to know

Don’t be afraid of letting go

It takes a loving heart

To see and show

This love

For our own ecology

Hold the light

Hold the light

Out of love we’ll come a long long glorious way

At the start of every day

A child begins to play

And all we need to know

Is that the future is a friend of yours and mine

Jon Anderson


BROTHER OF MINE

So giving all the love you have

Never be afraid to show your heart

So giving all the love you have

There is a special reason

A special reason…

In the big dream

We are heroes

We are dreamers

Of the big dream

Someone told me

There are brothers

Live forever

In the big sky

Just hear your voice

Sing all the songs of the earth

Nothing can come between us

You’re a brother of mine

Sing out your sisters

All the dreams of the world

Nothing can come between us

We are the travellers of time

See the desert

We have walked the path

Of all the known religions

In the big dream

We are brothers, we are sisters

Of the big dream

Just hear your voice

Sing all the songs of the earth

Nothing can come between us

You’re a brother of mine

Sing out your sisters

All the dreams of the world

Nothing can come between us

Took me by surprise

It opened up my eyes

I can’t believe we’re ready to

Run another

Run another

Run another

Fourth Dimension Dream

All the way it seems

I can’t believe we’re running to

See the world for what it really is

In the full moon

Took me by surprise

It opened up my eyes

I can’t believe we’re ready to

Run another

Run another

Run another

Fourth Dimension Dream

Always the way it seems

Just hear the voice

In all the songs of the earth

Nothing can come between us

You’re a brother of mine

We hold our hands together

Be the sunshine

Nothing can come between us

You’re a sister of time

Just hear the voice

Sing all the songs of the earth

Nothing can come between us

Nothing can come between us

Nothing can come between us

So give it all the love you have

Never be afraid to show your heart

So giving all the love you have

There is a special reason to come true

So giving all the love you have

Never be afraid to show your heart

So giving all the love you have

There is a special reason

There is a special reason this time

Long lost brother of mine

Seeing my life for the first time

Long lost brother of mine

Living my life in the dig dream

Long lost brother of mine

Walking away from illusion

Long lost brother of mine

Seeing my life for the first time

Long lost brother of mine

Seeing me fly like an eagle

Long lost brother of mine

Watching me walk in the full moon

Long lost brother of mine

Seeing my life for the first time

Long lost brother of mine

Walking this dream everlasting

So it’s there

Putting one into one special reason

So it’s there

Putting one into one

One another. Sure can. Sure can

This is a further dimension

Coming at us for the very first time

It’s the second attention

Realising it all of the time

Re-defining this long lost passion

For the living we’re in

This will be the first of many

I be telling you

Long lost brother of mine

Walking the dream evolution

Long lost brother of mine

Singing the sisters of freedom

Long lost brother of mine

Seeing the fathers of wisdom

Long lost brother of mine

Seeing my life for the first time

So it’s there, but to want it to one special reason

Yes it’s there, but to want it to want one another

So it’s there, but to want it to one special reason

Yes it’s there, you can see what you want to see

Long lost brother of mine

FIST OF FIRE

Carry forth as a guardian to Kingdom Come

With your daggers of the spirit

Let the dagger run

With the Fist of Fire

Be the master now

As the darkness of ages past

Riches silver and gold

In the liquid see

Cast a net can you catch

So you can’t see me

As in death you can climb

Higher thru the sky

Show your wings

Surely you can fly

Fly away past the guardian to Kingdom Come

See the miracle of life

Disappear it’s gone

Go carry your silver ships of light

Go carry your silver ships of light

Go carry your silver ships of life

Go carry your silver ships of life

Go carry your silver ships of life

Keep the fire in your hand

It won’t let you drown

As you fly with your wings

Won’t come falling down

See the flower of youth

Disappear on high

As you gather your true wings

About to fly

To be ready

To be strong

Make it run

This righteous

This wrong

This right

This love

This is how nature controls

The way of all things

this is how the angels sing

Not afraid

No, not afraid

Not afraid of this or that

Not afraid

Carry forth as a guardian to Kingdom Come

With the ghost

And the spirit

Let the fire run

Thru the darkest age

We can surely fly

Thru the darkest age

With the Fist Of Fire

Thru the darkest age

With the Fist of Fire

I WOULD HAVE WAITED FOREVER

I would have waited forever – For you to return into my life

I would have waited forever – I would have given you everything I had

I would have waited forever – There’s no question, no question at all

So true in the prize, would you wait for me?

All because you got burned, so you took what you needed.

Some will always turn away, say it’s reason enough;

It’s another game of exploration.

Something calls at reverse and it comes to you;

Experience everything as it comes true.

So – It will be then

Change – It will happen

See – That we feel it

All – Is completed.

Don’t you want the world to stop short of giving?

Anytime of night or day, the magic things you love.

Everybody hurts when you shout, when you walk away;

Talk about it according to you.

I would have waited forever – For you to return into my life

I would have waited forever – To give you everything I had

I would have waited forever – There’s no question about it at all

So inbetween the perfect flame of you, this love will never let you down.

Just take it as it comes, for everything will come around.

You put your hand up: stop the flow of where you’re going to;

It’s another game called exploration.

How we imagine everything that we think we’re going through;

It’s another reason to make the break.

Everyone will move with you now to the riverside;

Experience everything, but go with the landslide.

I would have waited forever – For you to return into my life

I would have waited forever – To give you everything I had

I would have waited forever – No question in my body and soul

Forever…

LIFT ME UP

Look around – Got no place to stay.

God I hate this town, depending on the day.

You lift me up, you lift me down – Alright, OK.

While I got no life, I got no hope;

I’m falling in love.

Help me through the fight;

Help me with tonight – I’m calling.

What to do I find it hard to know;

Lord, the walk is not the one I chose…

Lift me up and turn me over;

Lead me on into the dawn.

Take me to the highest mountain;

Tie me up, love in a storm.

Have you decided on my fortune?

Facing the future in your eyes,

With your imperial behaviour

We fight amidst the battle cries.

Open doors – They may be closed to me;

The fire’s still burning in my heart…

What to do I find it hard to know;

I want to turn my life around…

THE CALLING

Feel the calling of a miracle

In the presence of the word.

Now we hold the right to rearrange

How the stories can be heard.

In the beginning is the future,

And the future is at hand;

I’ll be calling voices of Africa

Be the rhythm to the plan.

From the Congo to Lenasia

Be the writing on the wall.

I’ll be calling the colors of India

See the Asian life explode.

Head in to the headlight.

Don’t turn from the rain.

There’s a fire raging somewhere near,

Like a longtime friend who’s

Seen it darker than ebony.

Take off on the turnpike

(Asking for the first call)

Give me more of the same

(Asking for a song)

There’s a fire burning in my heart again.

I’ll be calling the dragons of China;

See the dancers of the Nile.

See the wings of change are on display

This revelation mine.

Feel the calling of a miracle

In the presence of the word.

Head in to the headlight.

Don’t turn from the rain.

There’s a fire raging somewhere near,

Like a longtime friend who’s

Seen it darker than ebony.

Take off on the turnpike

(Asking for the first call)

Give me more of the same

(Asking for a song)

There’s a fire burning in my heart again.

Feel the calling of a miracle,

The revelation mine.

I AM WAITING

Am I waking to this magic

Am I seeing, all is human,

Human after all…

I wanna be inside your heart

Are you ready

I wanna love forever

Are you thinking

I wanna be inside your heart

What I’m thinking

I wanna know you’re with me.

Highways, starways, many ways

To be open tonight.

High time, look inside your life.

I am waiting.

I am waiting; are you ready?

I am waiting; can you hear me?

Can you hear me?

I happened in the water.

The heaven will fall.

The break in the water.

The secret birth.

Said she loves me; I believe her.

Waited lifetimes, say this to you.

I wanna be inside your heart

Are you ready

I wanna love forever

Are you thinking

I wanna be inside your heart

What I’m thinking

I wanna know you’re with me.

Highways, starways, many ways

To be open tonight.

High time, look inside your life.

I am waiting.

Say you need me, I’m yours.

Say you need me, just because.

(It’s our freedom…)

It’s our freedom, hear me now.

We are made to be here now.

We’ll be waiting for the word

As the healing of the world.

Make me promises, to be true,

All my life my world is you.

I am waiting; are you ready?

Are you ready?

I am waiting; can you hear me?

Can you hear me?

MIND DRIVE

Don’t forget to seek out the world that you want to stake out

Actions speak much louder than words

And you get to realize

Just as long as you have control, holding the fire

Just as long as you keep control, this point of your desire

Wait as it will all come to you

Feel it as a mutual response

You get the heaven you like

You get the heaven

You get the heaven you need

You get to heaven now

Just as long as you bring the power from the inside

Just as long as you hold the key from the inside

Ascend and create

Ascend and create

Ascension

They will bring you rain

They will move the sky

They will give you light

It will live you long

Thru’ the eyes of child

Through the song of songs

It will bring the moon

It will transfer you

Whole, pushing for the time to call

Dancing on the moon, giving it out

In the night of nights

It will shine for you

With the wings of flight

They will make it thru’

Through the eyes of child and the test of song

It will comfort you

It will make you feel

Whole, looking for the chance to call

Making your world, independently

Whole, watching for the place to run

Dancing, dancing, move

We will make it right

We will dance for you

On this night of nights

They will make it thru’

Through the eyes of child and the wish you are

As the thought that comes from a distant star

Whatever thought you have

Can become a new dream

For the perfect stance

Take you there and back again

And you believe you are

Independently, Whole

Waiting for the signs, Whole

Reaching for the foresight shown

Whole, dancing for the moon, dancing for the light

Whole, pushing for the mind drive, drive

Dancing for the Earth, dancing for the light

Whole

Dancing for the light

They will bring the rain

They will make it right

It will transfer you, each and every night

With their wings of hope, they will cover you

They will make it right, they will shine for you

With their golden wings, close around your soul

It will count for you, it will make you whole

Thru’ the eyes of child, and the song of songs

It will make you move, it will transfer you

And so it comes to this now

When you walk into the bliss that

Holds down the fire

As pleasure will devine

So close so let your heart enter

So come and let your heart enter this

So close and let yourself lose control

Heaven help the love that you send

Heaven has the love you send, free

Whole, watching for the time to call

Dancing in the light, making it right

Dancing, dancing, whole

Waiting for the signs, whole

Reaching for the sight to show

Whole, independently, whole

Pushing for the mind drive, drive

Dancing on the Earth, dancing in the light

They will bring the rain, they will shine the light

Understanding this, it can come tonight

For the love of love and the answers to

It begins with me, it begins with you

Whole, pushing for the time to call

Looking for the sign, making it right

Dancing, dancing, whole

Waiting for the time to call

Dancing in the harmless sun

Entering the mind drive

Don’t forget to seek out the world that you want to stake out

Actions speak much louder than words

And you get to realise

Just as long as you have control, holding the fire

Just as long as you get to keep, this point of your desire

Wait as it will come to you

Feel it as a mutual response

You get the heaven you like

You get to heaven

You get the heaven you need

You get to heaven now

OPEN YOUR EYES

You’ve got a great imagination

You carry on in the same old way

No lessons learned from yesterday

Talk of changes lost in pages of paperwork

I believe it…

How can we refuse to see

I’ve received it…

What could be our final destiny

I believe that…

Still we go on from day to day

Knowing what could be true

Wish I knew

Wish I knew

Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover

You’re not the only one

In disguise

Do you wonder

When the change is gonna come?

Open your eyes

You’ve got a great imagination

We cast the world, we set the stage

For what could be the darkest age

Short exchanges

From perfect strangers

We’ll never know

But wish we knew

I believe it…

It’s time to face reality

I’ve received it…

Questioning the powers that be

I believe it…

Are we too confused to see?

Wish I knew

Wish I knew

Wish I knew

Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover

You’re not the only one

In disguise

Do you wonder

When the change is gonna come?

Open your eyes

You’ve got a great imagination

Open your eyes

Show it

Show it

Wish we knew

I believe it…

It’s time to face reality

I’ve received it…

Things aren’t what they used to be

I believe it…

What I see in you, you see in me

Wish I knew

Wish I knew

Wish I knew

Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover

You’re not the only one

In disguise

Do you wonder

When the change is gonna come?

Change is gonna come

Change is gonna come

Change is gonna come

You’ve got a great imagination

Change is gonna come

Change is gonna come

Change is gonna come

You’ve got a sweet imagination

Change is gonna come

Open your eyes

Change is gonna come

Open your eyes

Change is gonna come

You’ve got a deep imagination coming

Show it

Show it

Show it

Show it

Show it

Show it

UNIVERSAL GARDEN

Looking up into the endless sky

Staring into the maze of time

Our existance caught in the blink of an eye

Imagining other words we try

Realizing somehow we’re all part of this

Wondrous cosmical tapestry

Beyond the sun

Beyond the sky

Are where the real questions lie

Wanting to know where it begins

The puzzle piece we are missing

Starlight

Flowering

Endlessly through the universal garden

Garden above

Looking up into the endless sky

Through space and time

Staring into the maze of time

We’ll fly

Our existence caught in the blink of an eye

Retracing years

Imagining other worlds we try

No fears

Realizing somehow we’re all part of this

Blazing a new trail

Wondrous cosmical tapestry

Beyond the sun

Beyond the sky

Are where the real questions lie

Wanting to know where it begins

The puzzle piece we are missing

Starlight

Flowering

Endlessly through the universal garden

Garden above

Investigate the science of illusion

We benefit without knowing

Our time is man-made

Our fear is man-made

Delusion man-made

Religion man-made

Love is forever

Flowering

Endlessly through the universal garden

Garden above

Beyond the sun

Beyond the sky

Are where the real questions lie

Wanting to know where it begins

The puzzle piece we are missing

Beyond the sun

Beyond the sky

Are where the real questions lie

Universal garden

HOMEWORLD (THE LADDER)

Nothing can take us far enough

Emotion… far enough together

As the light shines so bright

Bright enough to let us in

Nothing can bridge our souls’

Devotion… fast enough together

As the power proves you right

Right enough to let you begin

So many displaced among the future dreamers

Realised their doubles

Took a new step

A question of origin

Only in the recent past

Seeking for to realise

Skyward shone

Like beacons

A question of origin

Ten thousand millions free

To the westward light

The dreamers represent

This arc of peace

As the poets entranced

The anchor redeemed

Secrets of science

The history of the future

Was surely made

Just what keeps us so alive

Just what makes us realise

Our home

Is our world, our life

Home is our world

Nothing can take us far enough

Emotion… far enough together

As the light shines so bright

Bright enough to let us in

Nothing can bridge our souls

Devotion… fast enough together

As the power proves you right

Right enough to let you begin

Speak so fast to the prophets

Of the living

Looking for the signs

Spanning out the centuries

Search for truth

Ancient ones… they watch

And listen

Carry our wishes

Took upon themselves to guide us

Through the endless skies

Just what keeps us so alive

Just what makes us realise

Our home

Is our world, our life

Our hope is our world, our life

I have seen the passion

That’s in the hope that everyone

Will find their way into

The secret of

The home of your heart

Living within the vision

Within the power, beyond belief

We see that hate destroys the soul

Of anyone who tries to teach it

I have seen the dream

That’s in your heart

That’s in your eyes

To bring you closer to the one

It’s what keeps us so alive

It’s what makes us realise

Our home is our world, our life

Just what keeps us so alive

Just what makes us realise

Our home

Is our world, our life

Home is our world, our life

Send, ascending to the secrets

All is pure and clear to resolve

Nothing can change us now

Send, ascending to the future

Nothing can ever change us now

We follow the sun

We follow the sun

We follow the sun

Truth is a simple place

Here for us all to see

Reach as it comes to you

As it comes to me

As I will always need you inside my heart

Peace is a word we teach

A place for us all to reach

Sing as it sings to you

As it sings to me

As I will always need you inside my heart

THE MESSENGER

Judging by the voice

He was free to himself so real

We slaved ourselves to sacrifice

More than that we do not know

Then you hear him on the radio

He would play the sacred themes

That my children sang to me

Amazing as it seems

It was the answer to my dream

His heart that touches me

More than that I do not not know

Then I hear him on the radio

Remembering his every word

That my children sing to me

We have seen the world, this ecstasy

Now my children sing to me

This loving place, beyond belief

You got to stand stand to to together

Keep the message alive

You got to stand stand to to together

To keep the message alive

Spirit up moving, spirit up

Rhythm of sunfire

You got to stand stand to to together

Keep the message alive

Listening for his words

He would speak in ancient verse

So we mesmerize a way to go

Reaching out the universe

Reaching out the universal

Not afraid to learn new words

That our children sing to us

We have seen the world, this ecstasy

So his children bring to us

This inner peace, beyond belief

You got to stand stand to to together

Keep the message alive

You got to stand stand to to together

To keep the message alive

Spirit up moving, spirit up

Rhythm of sunfire

You got to stand stand to to together

Keep the message alive

One voice

One world

One touch

One life… truly, truly say it

One world… one voice

One touch… truly, truly say it

Some people realise

Some people see it

From the beginning

One world… one touch

One voice… one life

One touch… one voice… one world… one life

IN THE PRESENCE OF

Deeper than every ocean

Deeper than every river

That’s what your presence brings to me

Revealing the words I listen

Seeing you in my silence

Learning I’m with you constantly

As I was before

If we were flowers

We would worship the sun

So why not now?

This high is shining brightly

Brighter than before

As the door was open wide

There inside was a diamond chair

Where I sat when I was young

I wrote down the words

Only when the young at heart

Can enter the real world

This chance I’ve waited for

For you to see

If I had chances I would spend them with you

To hold you close and let your love surround me

Deeper than before

(Deeper than every ocean)

And I know this love is real

(Deeper than every river)

Realize this is meant to be

That’s what your eyes they say to me

You are listening to how I feel

So expectedly

(Brighter than every morning)

From the ocean to the sky

(Beautiful as the sunset)

Every river to the sea

Nature surrounds me constantly

We can hear love constantly

This is for you and me

Turn around and come deeper now

So what happens when I touch you there

You feel the words roll over you

Thinking of the better scenes

The memories

As everybody else just

Hasn’t got the time

To help you anymore

‘Cause if the reason for

The things that pleasure us

To please ourselves

Not pressure us

To give our ego

Some pleasure time

Can you imagine

Any reason

To know you’re only fooling yourself

And then you’ll understand why

You’ll understand why

So if we choose to realize

All existence is a dream

This perfect resume to you

From me

Just had a tough time with magic

The death of ego

The moon

It was just coming through

Send me such a good time

In a letter form, tell me

The pleasure, no pressure

Pure imagination in a metaphoric dream

I get amazed like a true beginner

I get amazed like a true believer

I get amazed when I see you there

And I come alive

I believe I’m a true beginner

I believe I’m a true beginner

In your arms I can see it all

I can see it all

If we were flowers

We would worship the sun

So why not now?

This light is burning brightly

This light is burning brightly

Brighter than before

Brighter than before

Brighter than before

Brighter than before

Turn around and remember that

When it gets so low

As you finally hit the ground

Turn around and remember that

Now I’m standing tall

Standing on my sacred ground

Turn around and remember that

When it gets so low

As you finally hit the ground

Turn around and remember that

Now you’re standing tall

Standing on sacred ground

Standing on sacred ground

Standing on sacred ground
