Track Name: Be Fearless And Play
These are no normal times my friends
I can see the storm clouds gathering
Try to close your eyes to the ignorance and lies
But it still feels like a heavy load
Greed and fear are the seeds that appear
To have taken root through our garden right here
These sights and sounds were draggin’ me down

So I went out upon the road
I went out across the ocean
out to Thailand and Cambodia out to Katmandu
Sri Lanka through Tibet and then down to India
And up on a hill in Rishikesh I came across a holy man
With shining eyes and a toothless smile
He grinned and this is what he said
“There’s nothing so tall we can’t climb over
There’s nothing so wide we can not cross
The time has come to raise your voices
The light burns brightest when all hope seems lost

Be Fearless and Play

Even though we never seem to have it all together
Still I know with us all together we could have it all

Be Fearless and Play
You could live for tomorrow and still live here in today

When i would play when i was a child
I swore that i would never forget no
I will never forget no!

Be Fearless and Play
This is one thing that no one can ever take away
Track Name: Junk Food
To all the free range humans
and organic life forms everywhere
Hold your forks up with solidarity
Remember you vote with your wallet
Your dollar bills your ballets
Alone it’s just a whisper
But together you can’t stop it

OMG it’s the GMO’s
From the labs and tubes where the fast foods grow
If you are what you eat then i’m a UFO
Hope to god that my body still can decompose
Cause i’m biodegradable and your biodegradable gotta stay biodegradable
And you’ll find that the mind is highly persuadable

Doesn’t matter if you came through the canal or your cesarean
If your an omnivore or maybe more a vegetarian
You choose to eat an animal a vegetable a mineral
Eat what you are it’s never been more literal

Come chemical come dumbin’ down the food chain
Come dumb us down whose super power seed grain
Come Monsanto come with your new campaign
All the politicians sing along with the refrain

No more junk in my food

We want it slow not fast like they grew in the past
With green dream coming growing up in the youth
Please no more junk in my food

You say something here but i can’t understand

Then McDonalds got a farm GM GM GMO
And on that farm he had a chicken and a cow
But they do now you really don’t wanna know
Why must we label it organic
When that’s the way we’ve been growing it for ten thousand years
I think the farm factory should label honestly
To admit what they add genetically and chemically
Is there a bioengineer in the house
Is there a bioengineer i need some help with this label
How do you say this calcium polyphosphate
Is this nutritional claim a fairytale or a fable

Come chemical come dumbin’ down the food chain
Come dumb us down whose super power seed grain
Come Monsanto come with your new campaign
All the politicians sing along with the refrain

No more junk in my food
Track Name: Monkey See Monkey Do
Monkey see monkey do monkey i see you
I come and visit you in prison in this messed up zoo
I wanna open up the cage but afraid of what’s it gonna do
I really don’t think here on the outside’s very good for you
And maybe hear no evil see no evil maybe evil too
But i need to smile for awhile with the denial of a fool
Cause if i see it all i’ll go crazy lock me up in a padded room
I don’t know maybe let me in your cage and live inside with you

You can’t do nothing
But there’s nothing you can do
I said you can’t do nothing
But there’s nothing you can do
This lesson of acceptance is what i’m going through
You can’t do nothing
But there’s nothing you can do

(Peewee Dread)
Track Name: Crack In The Dam
Damn i see a crack in the dam
Like a smack to the man
With his head in the sand
And his back to the facts
And his ass in his hand
I said damn
I see a lack in this plan
And i don’t understand what to do lord
There’s a crack in this dam

And when the dam breaks the water will fall
Down will come all of what’s built up behind that wall
It’s been ringing and it’s ringing
And we still missed that call
Now we miss the ringing
Bring a flood to us all
To the dam it seems that happens all of a sudden
But it really wasn’t doesn’t ever happen that way
Years of pressure and decay
Now is a critical moment
Do you blame or do you own it
So now what you gonna do when the pressure drops on you

Can you feel the pressure build behind the wall
It’s coming for us all

Dam there’s a crack in the dam
Like a smack to the man
With his head in the sand
And his back to the fact
And his ass in his hand
I said damn
There’s a lack in this plan
And i don’t understand what to do lord
Help me make it through
Or show me how to know just to how to make it up to you
And give me one more chance to
try to put a patch on the dam
Track Name: Original Sin
Show me that sin that’s original
Eating from that tree and mankind will fall
Kicked out from that garden he built a wall
Where does it come from
Where does it come

Come cherubim with your flaming sword
You see i’m not afraid i still march towards ya
Have no blame i know your under orders
What do you say that you guard it for?

Red apple, blue pill, Knowledge gained, blood spilled
In the name of the Father he’s bothered by free will
Doing time for that crime think my answers cheated you
But if i had that choice i would have eaten it too

(Peewee Dread)

Why did you kick us out of the garden
Why did you kick us from the garden
I just want to come back home
Track Name: Always Is
Up on a cliff i saw a tree grow out of a solid rock
I follow the root back down and found how it had begun
Somewhere a seed had some how slipped inside a secret crack
And now the branches has reached up proudly for the sun

so come on everybody put your hands in the sky
And let out your mind and stretch out your spine
Reach up like a tree with your limbs up high
And bring in the light to your third eye sight
bring in the light to your third eye

Cause everything always is, always was, always will be alright
Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean that it’s easy

Down in Cambodia i met a man who for most of his life
Fought in the war for one side or the other
But just hear his laughter and you’ll know this soldier never sold his soul
Although the senselessness had stole away his father and his brother

Up on a cliff i saw a tree grow out of a solid rock
The roots were clinging for life
Saving it from certain doom
But the tree had a limb
That held a branch
And the branch that held a twig
And on that twig a beautiful flower bloomed
Track Name: Don't Should On Me
Two men come and disagree to agree
Both one to the other saying what should be
Each climbing higher up self righteous towers
And catapulting “shoulds” back and forth just empowers them
Don’t get me wrong i’m the king of it
Just a little bit hippy hypocrite winging it
Sometimes thinking that i’m knowing everything of it
And putting my should inside a song and singing it

Should as it should maybe sounds absurd
But should could be heard almost every other word
When you should on your friends it’s bad for the health
But you got to be careful not to should on yourself
These Towers of Babel all inevitably fall
With cracks in the walls and the building implodes
From the wreckage and rubble we rebuild another bubble
Cause that’s the way the monkey mind goes

With a “should do this!” and a “should do that!”
Everybody’s just trying to do good
But how many shoulds would a good man say
If he could stop would he stop shoulds
Oh my friend for the wounds to mend
There’s only one thing we should do
Don’t you should on me and i won’t drop my shoulds on you

Frequencies unfold in our numskulls
Like a spark in a dark cave
Where the light and sound waves
Pave a way to mental higher ground
All the little thoughts we collect
Turned them into bricks with our intellect
Build a tower in your hypothalamus and cortex
Our own fortress in our cerebellum
We can carry our convictions to the roof and yell ‘em
At the top of our lungs standing on the top rung
Track Name: Blue Sky
The mind is a bright blue sky
Clouds are thoughts and feelings floating by
You have them but you are not them
Whatever you do
don’t let them have you
Track Name: At Last
Why do you throw stones at your own heart
It makes us sad to see you this way
These ideas that you still cling on to
Don’t belong to you
Throw them away
But our minds play tricks on us all
Waiting for anything to catch your fall
Sit a moment in silence
There you can recall
That the tide will rise
And the tide will fall
And the things that push on you
You can’t see them all
And the moon will rise
And the night will fall
And the things that pull on you
You can’t leave them all

So put your best foot forward
And let’s get out of here fast
Cause your bones are healed
So rip off that cast
And let the past be the past at last

You’re thinking what are you gonna be doing when the pain comes back
But it’s just a shell that surrounds you understanding just got cracked
Like a fruit will split, a seed will drop now will grow another crop
Don’t ever let it stop drop or roll you off the top
Now you can see the season coming and going ebb and flowing
And you know when it’s snowing that the seed will soon be growing
Winter into spring and summer into fall
Got to love them all

And you will rise
And you will fall
And the things that come at you
You can’t fight them all
So don’t fight at all
Track Name: All Together
Just because we think of treasure
not in terms of gold and silver
Doesn’t mean that we don’t have our wealth
Some say we have lost it
But know in a world gone mad
Sanity is no real sign of health

So drop your bags and drop your fears
Lift your voice and voice your cheers
Hoist your mug and give some hugs
Shout your mantra sing your prayer
Look around we’re all right here
It just proves we’re not all there

We may not have it all together
But together we can have it all

(Hi di-diddly-i dum diddly-iddle-idle-dum
hi dum di diddly-i day)

(Peewee Dread)

The purpose of this life is to live a life with purpose
So don’t get trapped inside your safety net
So fill you well and light your flame
But go on seeking service
Life with out a cause is life with out effect
Track Name: Home Free
In every tribe only a few would wonder
What’s beyond that hill
Who will go, fewer still you know
And you’ll find in every shape and every kind
The reasons why now’s just not the time to go
But i say go and let your sail unfurl
Go talk to strangers and see this beautiful world

Home free that’s where i long to be
With a pack upon my back
An open road in front on me
And mister when you look
No don’t look down on me
I’m not homeless no, i’m home free

Years ago when i was sailing down the coast
I met a man who had a boat in his back yard
He worked on it for years, but it had never seen the water
And now his life was ending and this just broke his heart
He said now go and let your sails unfurl
I say go talk to stranger and see this beautiful world

Home free that’s where i long to be
(Kite) surfing on a beach
In some beautiful country
Mister when you look
Oh no don’t look down on me
I’m not homeless, i’m home free
Track Name: Shade
Why not make a change in your life
It’s not that hard to become who you are
Why not make a change in your life
It’s not that hard to become who you are

He was afraid of his shadow run from his shadow
Shaking roll and rattle always picked the wrong battles
Never won, never once thought that he should slow down
So he ran and he ran and he ran till he can’t stand
Damn need a plan look down upon the ground
But there it was, his shadow was there
So he ran till he died
Silly man

If you just sit under a tree in the shade
Watch your shadow slowly fade away
Sit in silence soaking up some shade
See your shadow slowly fade away

To the man with the hammer
Every problem is a nail
And it really never fails
Always builds is own jail
With a cell, with himself
Where he hides from the world
And he slams and he slams and he slams
With his hammer and still no plan
Look down around his cell
But there he was, his shadow was there
So he hid till he died
Silly man
Track Name: What You Mean
When the day is long but something feels wrong
And i just can’t seem to put my finger on it
Same old cloud still follow me around
Try to listen to my own advice
But still falling down trying
Tears of a clown still crying
Outside fine but inside dying
Soundly she puts her arms around me
Pulls my head against her chest
And says please my love please rest your mind
This life is but a dream
Know you’re not alone because i know what you mean

Look at you there’s no surprise
Don’t like when it’s sets but loves when it rises
Look at me always waking up late
So it seems sunsets are strictly my fate
And look at you with the love in your eyes
And waiting for what’s coming over the horizon
Look at me got stuck up a tree of
knowledge of good and evil never helped me
Track Name: Rumi
we don’t listen to stories
full of frustrated anger
we feed
on laughter
and a tenderness
we hear around us
when we’re together

- Rumi (We point to the new moon)
Track Name: Extra
When i would play when i was a child
I swore that i would never forget no
I will never forget no!

“There’s nothing so tall we can’t climb over
There’s nothing so wide we can not cross
The time has come to raise your voices
The light burns brightest when all hope seems lost

Be Fearless and Play

Even though we never seem to have it all together
Still I know with us all together we could have it all

Be Fearless and Play
You could live for tomorrow and still live here in today

Be Fearless and Play
It’s one thing that no one can ever take away
