I seem to have created all these limitations,
Obstacles and Boundaries of my own Creation,
But I’m not gonna give in to frustration,
As I manifest the Circumstance for Transformation Come on

Don’t create problems Just create solutions,

Chorus

V2
Sometimes
It’s like I see a gate and I’m waitin to enter,
But tryin to find the key’s like tryin to find my centre,
I know where it is but cant seem to remember
How to Get to it….. It’s like I need to invent a,
New way of Seeing it a new perspective,
And not be dominated by the Negative. No more
No--- I mean yes this is a positive quest,
No need to slay the dragon no need to impress the princess,
Just be myself and be my best,
Walk through the gate and embrace what’s next

Yes Yes yoh
Yes yes Yoh
Yoh- Yoh

Dive into you it could be good it could be bad
The waters may be calm or maybe I will go mad butyouknow I would rather be with you than
Sittin at home thinking bout the things that I should do so

The same kinda feelings that you do

Yes inside- there is a place that you can hide but
Step into the light leave your fears behind yes
Be in the present feel your fears and transcend them
One more step on the path to heaven

Future unfold like a conscious creation
Integration of the whole meditation for the soul
Contemplation of tastin the future that’s about to unfold
Unfold Unfold Unfold
Track Name: The Trees
The Trees

The trees talk to me
The fire talks to me
The wind talks to me
And I don’t know what they’re saying
But I understand

And I learn From my elders
And I learn From the children
And I learn From my friends
And sometimes I don’t know what the fuck they’re saying

And I don’t know what to say
I don’t know what to say

The clouds talk to me
The rocks talk to me
The stars talk to me
And I don’t know what they’re saying
But I understand

And I don’t know what to say
I don’t know what to say
No I don’t know what to say
But I’m happy things turned out this way
Track Name: Little Revolutions
LITTLE REVOLUTIONS
You wanna change the world you wanna save the world x 4
You gotta change yourself you gotta change yourself x 4
V1
Things don’t always turn out how you planned em
Sometimes it’s hard to be understandin’
Something turns around, the shit hits the fan
Shit hits the fan, again and again and
You get into the booze and cigarettes
Stay up to late do things you regret
But there’s no escaping it you have created it and
This situation it just needs you to be patient
Takes a long time lookin at yourself to see
That there are no easy answers and a lot of mystery
Interestingly and wistfully I’m blissfully
Dismissing all the history that says to me
You have to fight with the enemy
‘Cause the biggest battles inside of me

Chorus
Bb C D
It’s not gonna be the governments or institutions
C Bb G A
That change the world it’s gonna be a million little revolutions

Aliens aint gonna come and give us a solution
To save the world it’s gonna be 6 billion little revolutions

V2
Yeah we have the potential
to make the changes fundamental
political and environmental
powerful and gentle – but first we must
Learn to be responsible for our own actions
Set the example of respectful interaction
If we expect leaders to be peaceful then
We must forgive them for being greedy and deceitful and
Trust that we must trust in us before we
Turn to dust and rust we have to get it sussed
You know the way
Don’t leave it for another day

Chorus

You wanna change the world you wanna save the world x 4
You gotta change yourself you gotta change yourself x 4
What you gonna do what you gonna do what you gonna x 4

I see the magical gold of the sun on the ocean in the morning
When I wake up...with nothing but my blankets and my love
For everyone, everything, and every moment

How could I have been so blind not to see the light that Shines in Every Heart

V2
We are all just cells in the one body
Mother Earth

To work together to heal, to heal, to heal our bodies, ourselves
The future's so bright

Chorus
Break
V3
Give Everything that you have to give,
A Life full of blessings you shall live

So...light up and pass it around
Pass your plate as we share the sound
Of a thousand angels singing
And stomping their feet on the ground
Yeah heyeah yeah heyeah
Track Name: New Day
New day
Lift me up from this bottomless x 3
Lift me

V1
No I can’t taste any medicine
I forget everything that I’ve learned
And a mist is covering everything
And the pages of wisdom are burned
And I can’t feel the ground
And I think I have lost what I thought I have found
But then remember to breathe
And in a moment I feel
I am bathed in a beautiful sound

Ahh Ahh Ahh

Chorus

A new day is coming around
Yes a new day is coming around
Yes a new day is coming
Bringing everyone something
And we are not lost we are found

We are all lonely
No one is alone

V2
I know exactly what you were just thinking
And you know that I understand
And you know exactly what I was just thinking
And I know that you understand

We are all lonely
No one is alone

Jam ‘no one is alone’

Chorus

Lift me up from this bottomless x 4
Ocean of grieving interrupting my feeling
But now I am open, receiving
Cause now I am breathing
