Track Name: Nature's Love
Oh my friends
It struck me true
In the morning light
May I describe to you

Warm as wind
Then lightening came
Sparked in her eyes
And set my heart aflame

It was nature’s love
Running through her veins
Down the mountainside
Out to the sea again

And there I was
Standing on the shore
Mind calling me forth, sayin’…

The door is open
The door is open
There’s a changing tide
The door, the door, the door is open wide

When I heard
That we were dying
My mind aflame
My fears were multiplying

All our tears
And all the pain
Came down like rain
And flooded out the fire

It was nature’s love
The seasons change
The rise and fall
I saw you breathing then

And all my fear
I held in store
Fell to the floor, sayin’…

The door is open!
The door is open!
The wind is high
The door, the door, the door is open wide

How can one heart fit the whole world
How can one little life change this cold world
And if when we die there’s a soul world
Then nature’s love’s cruel hand led us home

The door is open
Step into the ocean
There’s a changing tide
The door, the door, the door, the door…

Is open wide!
Come on and step outside
Some people never want to never die
But the door, the door, the door is open wide
Track Name: Earth And Sun
Yes I know what I said
But I was all up in my head
Sometimes I don’t just know
But I wanna see it grow

Sometimes I can’t explain…
Sometimes I can’t explain myself… It’s like…

I need your body
Like the earth needs the sun
You keep me spinning
All around as you burn

Yes I know what I did
But I couldn’t keep it hid
If I let it go
Maybe then it would show

How can I explain…
How can I explain myself… It’s like…

I need your body
Like the earth needs the sun
You keep me spinning
All around as you burn

And if we get divided
And my world goes dark
I’ll be here waiting
Fire still in my heart

The gravity of our connection has got me stressing
Seems like a million lifetimes and in my time it’s only seconds

The gravity of our situation has got me shaking
A parallel I feel to my devotion would be the ocean
The whole blue ocean…..

I need your body
Like the earth needs the sun
You keep me spinning
All around as you burn

And if we get divided
And my world goes dark
I’ll be here waiting
Fire still in my heart
Track Name: Speak Truth
Speak truth to power, speak truth unto yourself
Speak truth and meaning til there’s nothing else

Speak when winning, and when youre falling short
From the beginning to your last resort

Try to speak truth only
Find you can hardly speak
Wave your hands until somebody sees

Speak truth in mourning
Speak truth when you’re in joy
And don’t pretend like I don’t know you boy

Speak truth
None of that he said, she said
Truth
None of that excuse me, I didn’t mean
Truth
Some of that come on and get it on
Truth

Come on and face it
You’re not speaking truth
You’re telling lies whenever it works for you

When its easy, you come in riding high
When it gets hard you set the truth aside

Come on and finish
We’ve known it from the start
You’re not really here, it’s the player’s art

And let’s be real
You’re not the only one
But I’m afraid that I might hurt ya, son

I speak truth
None of that he said, she said
Truth
None of that excuse me, I didn’t mean
Truth
Some of that come on and get it on
Truth

You are fire
And I am air
You end up burning
And I can’t make myself care


Speak truth
None of that he said, she said
Truth
None of that excuse me, I didn’t mean
Some of that come on and get it on
Truth
Speak Truth
Track Name: Planetary Grief
If I could tell you something on my mind
It’s in the air and caused a great divide.
Everyone one knows but only some will say
Something’s changing in the world today

In California and the rising sea
Stormy mirror looking back at me
A soul admission only some will make
A gentle prayer for all the human race

Oh my god
What have we done, what have we done
Oh my dear ones, oh my dear ones
We thought it was safe, but it was a gun

We drilled the mountains for an endless war
And raped the plains just to feed the poor
If we could see just what we’ve really done
Done to the earth is done to everyone

And did you know it’s not so very strange
To see inside in this Aquarian age
And now we’re here but think we’re back so far
If we looked around at where we are

Oh my god
Oh my god
What have we done, what have we done
Oh my dear ones, oh my dear ones
We thought it was safe, but it was a gun
Oh my god…

Now after all I’m ready not to hurt
My hands and knees returning to the dirt
Smell of soil how long have I been gone
Close to the ground ‘think I can carry on

Oh my god
What have we done, what have we done
Oh my dear ones, oh my dear ones
We thought it was safe, but it was a gun
Track Name: Loving Kindness
Call you up, when I’m feeling down
Drop a text, hey its easy now

Come on over, put some music on
It’s all good once your shoes a re off

Dance a bit, come on and move your body
Share a meal for three
You, the truth, and me

When the truth is almost three
Laughing and running free
Crying and can’t explain
Listen you’ll hear him say

Give loving kindness to me
Give loving kindness to me…

Be kind to me, and everyone you meet
Because we’re all refugees
From a land where we feel free

Trying to live, in a way we’ll make it through
Trying to give when we’re needing too

Looking for justice, when we’ve all been screwed
But some more than others
Let’s be real sisters and brothers

In a brotherhood of man
We’re so far from breaking bread
Quoting words that are old and dead
If I cry will you hold me head

Give loving kindness to me
Give loving kindness to me…

Then I feel free….
I feel free….
With all our walls
We still get free
To be… in peace..
Anywhere there’s loving kindness

Take the truth to PCC
Get a piece of fruit for free
Show him a what’s real treat
And not that white death sickly sweet

Then hit Chocolati
‘Cause life ain’t black and white
And our crew is tight
Drink coffee and talk all night

Are there answers to our questions
Can we brave our own confessions
Why are phones our new obsession
How do we help friends with depression

If this culture’s born to die
At least we learned to cry
Reached out in the night
Touched a hand and found the light

Give loving kindness to me…
Track Name: Rock This Commune
I’ve got brothers help me keep the beat
Sisters take the pulse down out on the street
People getting worried, wish for outer space
We’re gonna keep you dancing til you love this place

Cause Mars is bone dry
We tried the moon
We’ve got nowhere to be, y’all
Let’s rock this commune

Refugees running ask for room and food
If you think we owe you something we’ve got news for you
But news came back from the satellite view home
Turns out, people, we’re all one blue globe

And Syria’s bone dry
Tried to send them on through
But there’s no better place, y’all
Let’s rock this commune

The road is hard but we know our way
Still I'm scared everyday
But some fears you're meant to run
And some fears you can't avoid
So take my hand as our ego's destroyed
And we step
in
to
the void

I know a family with two moms and dads
I know a country stepping through the glass
I’ve seen a world gon’ be real one day
Where every single one of you beautiful flawed humans give up the gun find love and shine away

So wave your flags high
Peace signs too
Here we are together, y’all
Let’s rock this commune
Rock this commune
Track Name: Children (I Wanna Change)
Sitting in the garden
One day you asked me
I said I can’t say
Until I get where I’m going

But lips sealed
For generations
Get standing ovations
Now for letting it out

I’ve been waiting for this feeling
I’ve been waiting for the chance

I want to change
Put down the weight of the world
Lay down beside you
Change
Lay my hands down
Feel the blood run inside you

You called me up
Pulled me into bed
I’d been wide awake
On coffee and things they said

Now my days drift
My eyes half shut
But with a soft gaze on
What hasn’t happened yet

I’ve been waiting for this feeling
I’ve been waiting for the chance

I wanna change
Let my eyes close
Find you still here
Inside me
I wanna change
Open the window
Feel the wind blow around me…

This old world
Almost gave up for good
Seemed like no time
To do the things we could

Then loving you
Weeks passed in a day
There’d be time to build a life
If we lived it this way

I’ve been waiting for this feeling
I’ve been waiting for the chance

I wanna change
Let the time go
Let the spirit remind us.
We could change
Let our dreams grow
See the children around us
Around us…
