Track Name: Well Lost
Well Lost

Maybe I'm just a dipstick,
Pokin'; Stirring up the mire.
Searching for the truth.
Hope I find it here drinking;
Smokin'. I'm climbing on a wire.
Hope the landing's smooth.

I'm flying out there.
Well lost, but I don't care.
Unsure of who or where I'm going to.

Maybe I'm just a sinner, walkin'.
Talking 'good old days'.
They've gone away.
Meeting up with my peers, we're
Moanin'; wishing life away.
What the hell do I say?

I'm flying out there.
Well lost, but I don't care.
Unsure of who or where I'm going to.

I'll think about you on the mountain.
Forget the things that you are doubting.
Change your view, become a fountain
And pour all over.
Track Name: Let Me See You Shine
Let Me See You Shine

Now that we're underground
I can't see the sky.
We can no longer fly.
Notice the muffled sound
Through the soil above.
It sounds like love.

Get up, shake that shit off ya.
I know you're clean under there.
Your time has come, let me see you shine
It's all right.

Taking my time today.
Feeling lazy now.
I'm a sacred cow.
Stuck in this fake shangri-la
You can feel the mire.
We got to get higher.

Now that we're over ground
I can see the sky.
And we're gonna fly...
Track Name: Other Side
Other Side


I'm just a human in space.
They tell me to stick in one place.
I know I was sent here to be
Everything I feel and can see

Let's go to the other side.
I'll open the doors.
Please don't you ever hide
Away from me - I'm yours.

We spend our time fast asleep.
It's good 'cos our minds go deep.
I want to fly while awake
Unleash the power for all to take.
Track Name: These Days
These Days

Pass me a lighter, I wanna burn one down.
Gonna walk round town in a haze, yeah.
Have an all nighter, I'd love for you to come.
Feel like hanging out these days.

You're so pretty, it makes the lights go on
In this city; there they are!
I wrote this ditty. I hope it makes you smile.
It's all I wanna see these days.

We'll wake tomorrow and meet the cool grey sky.
Trying to stay high for the rain that'll come.
We'll pass the clouds, man and hurtle into space
Knowing that you and I are one.

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
You get me high now - I wonder why now?
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
You get me high - And I know why.
Track Name: Fly, People, Fly
Fly, People, Fly
 
 
Fly, people, fly. Try to escape the sky.
You’ll always wonder why you come back home.
Try, people, please. You never seem at ease.
Find a release before you come back home.

Alone – You’re never gonna wander.
Your phone – Your phone is always on ya.
Leave – Leave your toys behind you.
Try – Try to find your mind, yeah.
 
With your roots in the ground
and the mind above the clouds.
You’re hearing all the sounds from the great unknown.
Let the sun rise in you and clean out all the glue.
You’ll know just what to do in the great unknown.
 
Get outside. Open wide. No need to hide.
The world, it wants you.
Don’t you fear, ‘cos we’re all here together and clear.
And the world, it wants you.
Track Name: For Always
For Always

Now the world is gone and I’m floating,
I’ll try to carry on as I do.
Seeing that I’m one with the universe for always.

Joining to the whole revelation
Is quite a trip for sure, but it’s real.
Feeling I’ve arrived at my station - for always.

Under the skin are the roads that lead within.
You deserve all that life has to offer.
Forget what you know and start to rise and grow
Choose for always.

Now the world is gone and I’m floating,
I’ll try to carry on as I do.
Seeing that I’m one with the universe for always.
Track Name: If You Change Your Mind
If You Change Your Mind.

If you change your mind, I’ll come running.
I’ve been watching you from afar.
Cos I’ve felt the way you feel,
And the things that make you kneel.
You got to change the way you are.

Come on outside.
Where your soul can’t hide.
Change your thoughts, change your life.

The things you’re after; they’re all out there.
The blueprint doesn’t want to slow.
If you’re happy and feelin’ good,
You’re moving the way you should be.
Just keep it up now, that I know.
Track Name: Blind Strummin'
Blind Strummin’


You wanna know what I think?
I tell you I need a drink
Right now, right now – go get me one.
Today has been far too long.
I don’t know what I done wrong
Today, but hey – It’s been and gone, and

I’m coming home tonight and I’ll be right there, and I’ll
Die tryin’ to twist the minds of those who never care.
Blind strummin’ is all I got, it’s all I’m good at, so
I’m coming home tonight and I’ll be right there.

And when I’ve got me a glass
I’m gonna sit on my ass
Tonight, all night, and do fuck all.
I hope you’ll make me a joint.
Nice and straight to the point.
We’ll smoke, and sit, and stare at the wall, ‘cos

And now I’m feeling alright.
Much better, way out of sight
Of them who think they can keep me down.
One day we’ll get out of here,
Escape the culture of fear
That lives all over – let’s get out of town.
Track Name: Just Surrender
Just Surrender

I think it's about time that I got listened to,
Free my mind, yeah.
Been building up so long; It come bustin' out.
Got a song, yeah.

And it goes to show
When you need to grow
Just surrender and the energy will start to flow.

I like my crazy mind, but it's like cutting stone
Trying to find it.
Illuminated soul gives me balance.
Gotta hold it.

And it goes to show
When you need to grow
Just surrender and the energy will start to flow.
Track Name: Hello Morning
Hello Morning


Hello morning.
What you got for me today?
I ain’t got no plans,
I don’t want plans.

Hello morning.
Let’s just see what comes my way.
I just want to be.
I’ll just be.

Hello morning.
Our lives are frittered away in detail.
Gotta simplify.
Gotta simplify.

Hello morning.
The birds they sing, it is their will.
Everything comes into one
Everything in one.
Track Name: Let's Go Dancing
Let's Go Dancing


We've been up and down and everywhere.
We've been in and out of the who knows where.
Yet, when the day's done,
And there's not much to do.
We still got a plan,
So I say to you, "Let's go dancing".

We can stomp around in a dingy cave.
We can stay right here, have a private rave.
You and me and molly
Got a date with the floor.
And yes, sometimes I'm sorry
That we don't go more. Let's go dancing.

For sure, I have to say
That I love it when you're with me
And it's pounding with noises from space.
You're my four to the floor
You're my psytrance and my techno.
Here comes a build up;
And I'm off my face.
Track Name: Play All Day
Play All Day


I need to see you at the beginning of the climb.
I'd buy my way up, but I never have a dime.
I want it all, so sick of the crawl.
I'd wait forever, but there's no such thing as time.

I want it all, but I'm scared to fall.
So I choose to play all day.

I've searched the ether and discovered what was there.
Found a connection, but am unsure as to who or when or where.
Wandering in space - I lost the race
I'd wait for ages, 'cos it's easy and I don't really care.

I want it all, but I'm scared to fall.
So I choose to play all day.

Can't you find a reason to open up forever?
There is only now.
Can't you find a reason to open up together?
Don't be lonely, come on, show me
There is only now.
