about

This album is a 7 year process of songs written to inspire a peaceful revolution, one that has taken place so many times without the tabloids ever knowing about it. It is the revolution of oneself, going about life in peace and allowing others to coexist in happiness. A buddhist ideal.

Track Name: Forever
Forever:

Blue skies tell me it's better
If all the weather stays the same
take it slow because you never know what's ahead
You might go back to bed when the stocks forever changed
Whom am I feeling now
break me and I know it's not for real
Take me back to where I can choose
Which day is bad or good from how I bloomed
Could you ask them to go
Like they would if you really knew
Could you see they are meant to
Give the heart by just being

Blue sky tell me it's better
If all the weather stays the same
Take it slow because you never know what's ahead
you might go back to bed when the stocks forever changed

Who am I feeling now
Break me and I know it's not real
Take me back to where I can choose
Which day is bad or good from how we bloom

Could you ask them to go
like you would if you really knew
Could you see we never meant any harm by just being

blue sky tell me its better
if the weather stays the same
take it slow cause you never know whats ahead
You might go back to bed when the stocks forever's changed

blue sky tell me its better
if the weather stays the same
take it slow cause you never know whats ahead
You might go back to bed when the stocks forever's changed
Track Name: Truth Existence
Truth Existence -

I want to take you into the distance where the free life can be found
no discrimination from your own will put the seeds back in the ground
let liberty flourish like the fruits if you could place like the sounds
of the people joining hands making the world evolve around
the sun manifested in our own divine being
allowing omniscient life around us so that we keep on seeing
where our food is grown and our clothes are mended
what our houses are made of and why laws should be amended
because freedom lies within the hearts of the system on how are hearts are created
close to your heart, close to your heart, your closest to your heart with the love that you are.
pump blood truth existence into the forefront of creation
elevate your head to see beyond seven generations
make change in your life so that gods children are emancipated
all of you that walk this earth are at the forefront of creation
make existence of your nation more then consuming fruition
looking for answers in a haystack of bullshitin'
i'll find my own right now in the moment of my being
see straight through tot he ground that creates my seeing
close to your heart, close to your heart, your closest to your heart with the love that you are.
Track Name: Better Predicament
Better Predicament: as seasons start to change from summer to fall
rain and back into winter again as we start to display
we're over consumed we're breathing these fumes it's getting hard to live without thinking of you.
I don't want your war machines stop making babies crying.
is a fool on the street why he use what he need no to you for your greed,
it's a better predicament if I just close my eyes
make a system without greed or compromise.
evolution of spirit generations that pass make a new order that take down the capitalist crack
of the whip to enslave off our shores,
so consumed in consuming we become the slaves before we knew what had happened and our backs turned around, the belly of the beast looming for two hundred years on our ground. not ideal for my childrens children to be making products why they steal, coughing up a lung from dinosaur bones, I don't want your throne. I don't want your thrown.
(V2) I don't think it will last as the vision will pass, a day when we don't see time as nothing but an obstacle, beauty on my mind that will make me whole but a family wise as elders birth vision for aquarius to last…
Track Name: Wander
Wander

I saw myself into a dream that was making me believe we have future for our childrens children if we start to see the progress with connecting all the life that is protecting spirit and reflecting realize it's just a change. don't all run at the same time, honor (under) the sun in the east sky, I get along get along get along.
I saw myself into a dream that was lingering on the air like a note written to bring people together with the care, stared back into the beast it ceased to move, metaphors of metaphors of fools rimmed-the clock ticked because we told it to. so I stopped it so they don't yell at you. don't all run at the same time. isn't it fun to realize your alive. honor los muertos by living strong. I get along.
Track Name: Counter Culture
Counter Culture:

let your minds stop. and think before action the best way to get involved in stop stressing your passion. this is the counter culture's zone respect both sides we must get along this is the counter culture. you hate this and i hate that, you think that bliss and i think that's crap. but everyone got there opinion of things so try not to be so domineering on beings. structure this and structure that, you think that's bliss and I think that crap but everyone's got there opinions, so why not come down. I wanna believe these days could be so real, can you believe these days are so real.
Track Name: Surface Of The Moon
The Surface of the Moon

I give you my heart Right from the start There’s no turning back My bags are unpacked Take me away Away from the day When all that they say Is watch to behave
I’ll love you so much It hurts to hear I can’t touch The fertile soil beneath the sea The waves keep crashing into me On the surface of your moon
Something is wrong Must be wrong with my heart I thought I could do it Right from the start But she said my love was untrue disrespectful and vain I hope I can stop All the cause of this pain
Why does this love hurt so much I just want to express all of my love It's something deeper than above The surface of the moon
Track Name: Simmer Down
Simmer Down

simmer down
tell me there's a reason
how right and left they choose these freedoms
where I’m nowhere on their line
simmer down
tell me it was easy
trading pawns for a queen

give me something I can feel inside my soul
I wish the change can be things I can truly hold
a purple haze of a chance to break free this mold
I wish the chains to be off they are no more

tell me something that I can feel inside my soul
I wish the change can be things I can truly hold
a purple haze a chance to break free this mold
I wish the chains to be off they are no more

simmer down and
tell me there's a reason
why you trade your pawn for a queen
Track Name: Outer Space
Outer Space

Don’t go on without your soul
They came out from where you are
Hold your head before you go
They came out from where you are
Send me off to your outer space
And I’ll be fine, yes I’ll do fine… I’ll do fine
Go on using words to show
You have holding eye your way
Show it like you know your own
They came out from where you are
Send me off to your outer space
And I’ll be fine, yes I’ll do fine… I’ll do fine
Are we lost yet, or just finding our footing
Track Name: Downward
Downward

go on your way
figure it out
you have your own
downward

rocks in the ground
sifting in soil
shut in your whole
just open your door

how can you be silent
how can you not see it
roots in your ground shattered cement with sound
there's something bigger around
there's something different about
you
Track Name: Feel Better
Feel Better (lyrics by Kelly McCullough and Justin Ancheta)
giving thanks for the life of Eric Bayer.

I met a man up a hill in a yard outside house 61
He was a teacher and he taught me often in the arts of truth and love
He was always cooking in the kitchen he liked to cook that food for thought
He was a liver and a giver, he gave everything he got
He'd be funny, he'd be funny, he'd make you laugh 'till you fell down
And it'd be sunny it'd be sunny - sunnier when he's around

Feel better everyday
He'd make you feel better everyday

Cut the lemon when he throws it
Watch your head it's coming for you
Teach us how to live together
Break down walls exposing truth
And if he were here you know he'd surely care
to hear your trumpet blowing in the air

Feel better flying bird
Feel better everyday

Godspeed blessed journey friend travelling through the stars
Drop a line from time to time and let us know how you are
It's beautiful, it's beautiful, it's a beautiful mark you've made
I think of you in love and light surfing solar waves

Feeling better, where you are
Feel better right here and now
He’d make you feel better everyday
Feel better, he'll now be keeping us safe
Track Name: Livin' It Up
Living It Up (lyrics by Alex S. and Justin A.)

Livin’ it up livin’ it down
Ain’t no lie ‘till my woman’s around
Fly by night Lie around all day
So long babe oh you know I can’t stay
Dishin the dirt, keepin’ it clean
My oh my but you know what I mean
Livin’ it up, showing it down
Do it right when it comes around

Live Live Live
Live Live Live
Livin’ it up, Livin’ it down

Howl at the moon, baskin’ in the sun
Day or night just havin’ some fun
Ain’t gonna change, but I won’t stay the same
Day by day keep playing my game
Ever since birth and beyond the grave
I just can’t stop I won’t ever behave
Nothing to lose, so much to gain
I take the fall but feel no pain

Showing it down, Coming out def
Just make sure it’s all you got left
Pulling it up, Throwing it down,
Get her done when it comes around
Somebody new from somebody old
Don’t dare bend just break out the mold
Doing it red, doing it blue
Just make sure it’s your own personal hue
Track Name: Love to Love
Love to Love Lyrics

Take it
So Slowly
You Have
Time
You have
All Day now
To go
You are
Take it
So slowly
You Have
All Day

Never noticed the sun 'till it his behind the stars
open up your heart and tell me where you are
Lead me like a river that never finds the sea
open up your heart and let the people be

Love to love my love
Isn't she lovely
Love to love my love
But mostly when she's loving on me
love to love my love
Isn't she lovely
Love to love my love
But Mostly when she's loving on me

Good intent wanted to go
Leave me like a river that's always thirsting for mo'
Never saw the night sky while I was the movie star
wish the dream would take me away and up so far
