Track Name: Reincarnate
Come with me now
In skies of blue.
It's only love of you.
The ocean is coming
To take us home, take us...
Back to the sea
We continue the journey.
We continue the journey.

Keep waiting
Pain numbing
Colors fade
Pulse racing
Thoughts scatter
Fate facing
Dream chasing.

Love is your home (om)
You are home (om)
We are home (om)

One more life
You live again

No, why, no --- not again
Track Name: Hurry Up and Wait
Hurry Up and Wait

Shrink your mind around
Waiting for the time.
Knowing more of you
Less I want the love.

Hurry Up and Wait
Hurry Up and Wait

Swim alone and drown
I will not be there.
Waste my time, you do
Care not, is what I will of you.

Hurry Up and Wait
Hurry Up and Wait
Track Name: Keep You
Who are you
Who wanted me too?
I want you to
Know that I love you.

Why are you
So hard to read through?
You want me to
Know that I love you, love you, love you...

Want to keep you
Here with me.
Keep you here to
Be with me in song.

I'll follow you
To the end of time
To keep you here.

Who are you
Who wanted me too?
I want you to
Know that I love you.

What are you
Going to do?
To get me to
Know that I love you, love you, love you...

Want to keep you
Here with me so long.
Keep you here to
Be with me in song.

I'll follow you
To the end of time
To keep you here.
Track Name: Will I Ever
When you feel it close around you
Falling down.
Unexpected turns can blind you
Losing ground.

Will I ever
Will I ever see the light.

Words are lies that hope to find you
Silent sound.
Gripping fears control, divide you
Spinning round.

Will I ever
Will I ever see the light.

Stop fading
All is waking.
No more, apathetic
Mindless ignorance.

We are the people
Coming together
Fighting for our rights.

All you want
All you need
All is one
All are we going to be.

Will I ever
Will I ever see the light.
Track Name: Abide
As darkness fills the void.
Violet screams lost in a canyon.
Catch yourself from falling down.
Paralyzed in a state of being..abide.

The pleasure sips out of keys to turn.
Left you burn ripe right to me.

Long rope binds
Broken strings unwind
Only you can truly find...

In this fear I'm blind
I wake up to the sunshine on my mind.
And every single day I try to find myself
Only I come back to abide.

Bloodshot eyes in the pitch
Ringing in my ears.
Hearing cries of lonliness
Can I help you?

The spiders crawl out to search for flies
From the web inside my head.

Lost hope binds
Broken dreams unwind
Only you can truly find..

In this fear I'm blind
I wake up to the sunshine on my mind.
And every single day I try to find myself
Only I come back to abide.
Track Name: Windows
Windows of love
Rely on power of sunshine.

With these eyes you see
The world in broken hearts and lies unwind.

All the years I'm looking for
The truth of love that no one saw.

Windows, windows
Windows of love.

Panes of glass keep you from me
As I look inside for what I need.

Free your mind and turn the key
Unlock the future to let it be.

Windows, windows
Windows of love.
Track Name: Gather Round (Tribute to John Lennon)
As I watch the seasons shifting
Nature's dieing, not believeing
You're to blame.

Jai guru brahma.

It's not too late to change the view
You look outside at all the ruin/room
Make the world and sweet earth turn green.

Jai guru brahma
Jai guru vishnu
Jai guru Shiva.

Gather round and hold hands
With the ones that you love.
Gather round and hold hands
Save the earth, all is one.
Track Name: True Love
True love
Never felt like this before.
It was you
Who turned out to be
The one for me.
I know
You'll always be true.

You
Who turned out to be
The one for me.
I know
You'll always be true.
Track Name: Nightmare
Walking down the path to nowhere
Reaching out along the winding stair
Even though you know there's nothing there.

You look for more without a clue
You look for more without a care.
'Til it becomes a nightmare.

Searching all the way to life's end
Alone, it is, to be the highest high
No matter how the quit, the hardest try.

You look for more without a clue
You look for more without a care.
'Til it becomes a nightmare.

I want you, I need you
It's always, time to fix
And I know, that I love
When I feel, you in me
I hold on, I hold on
Just barely, to life and
I want you, I need you
Oh god, please help me.

I want you, I need you
I know you, I love you
I hold you, I loathe you
I want you, I need you.

Broken down you pass beneath the light
Only time will tell the fate of fall
I knew you once before you turned away.

You look for more without a clue
You look for more without a care.
'Til it becomes a nightmare.
Track Name: Choice
Sitting there behind your big oak desk
Drafting, writing law, you think you are
Some god knowing all the best for us
When in truth you know not one of us.

And the choice was yours to begin with
Who are they to take your rights
Now it's up to the willing and able
Shouting loud and free, pro-choice.

Daughters raped and left to fend alone
Not their fault, why should they pay.
What you say, turns and drives away
Like a slave, the gov controls all of.

And the choice was yours to begin with
Who are they to take your rights
Now it's up to the willing and able
Shouting loud and free, pro-choice.

Had a girl
She was so fine
I loved her with all my heart.
She knew this was the start.
Had a girl
We made love all the time
Until we found this out
What a new life's about.

And the choice was yours to begin with
Who are they to take your rights
Now it's up to the willing and able
Shouting loud and free, pro-choice.
Track Name: Lost In Life
Wish I could
Take your pain away.
Allow me to
Help you feel
The way you used to be
Before this.

I say the things I think will make you come out
Of the walls around your broken heart.

No one will ever
We are one together
Nothing will ever

Take the place
Fill the space
Replace what you
Lost in life once ago.

Seems to be
Something more than me.
It burns inside of you.
I'm here forever
By your side
Through every change.

I say the things I think will make you come out
Of the walls around your broken heart.

No one will ever
We are one together
Nothing will ever

Take the place
Fill the space
Replace what you
Replace what you
Lost in life once ago.
Track Name: Goodnight (Lily)
Lily, Lily

Sweet as a lilac
Soft as a baby.
Roc-a-by now
Gently drifting
Into sleep
Don't you weep.

Lily, goodnight, Lily, goodnight

Love for you is eternity
Cool, cool as a summer breeze.
Roc-a-by now
Gently drifting
Into sleep
Don't you weep.

Lily, goodnight, Lily, goodnight
