Forever 05:20
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

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.

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…

Wander 03:32
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.

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.

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

Simmer Down 04:05
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

Outer Space 04:12
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

Downward 04:52
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

Feel Better 03:36
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

Livin' It Up 05:03
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

Love to Love 04:27
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

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.
