Track Name: Ready or Not
As you walk along your road
Try to find out just which way to go
If the trail is clear your probably on someone else's path
So to the woods you go
Deep into the darkness and the great unknown
Blaze through the maze
Until you come upon a place that's not your future or your past
You walk up to the chasm's edge now
And jumping is the only way across
Those who seek are never lost

Doesn't matter who you are doesn't matter where you go
That cycle just keeps on spinning just as long as your alive
And at times you will be high and at times you will be low
Just remember that when you are falling turn it into a dive

Out in the world following your bliss
Relax the hand open up your fist
Still always coming back to this black abyss
You know is a sacred space
The fates lead who will
All those who won't will just get dragged still
Time to let go of the life you planned
To go with the one that awaits
We're born with wings but do we crawl
This abyss is where we learned to fly
The bottom's where your treasure lies
The bottom's where your treasure lies so dive

Oh Mahakala I will surrender
Ready or not I will surrender

Now is the time to get up and rise
And learn to convert the inertia of the dive
Put your hands up in the sky, no more need to try
I will surrender now
In the abyss you know the bliss always rises
Power of the now is the people harmonizing
Earthlings sing feel the world energize!
I will surrender now
Track Name: Earthling
I'm an earthling and you're a earthling
And we're evolving now so we all sing
That I'm an earthling and you're a earthling
I see a beautiful new day dawning

We got to battle the alienation
Help the people isolated by division
Come to remind them that it's all collaboration
And smash all the self imposed prisons
No more solitary confinement
See the light being split by the prism
But we can get it all back into alignment
Oh people of the Earth please listen!

Cause we're down to Earth
We're down to Earth
So dig your toes in the dirt
'Cause it all comes down to Earth

An alien is just a human being alienated
With their hearts and mind separated
And their nature devastated
Coming with a planetary invasion
Earthlings rise against the alien-nation

I'm a terrestrial being and not the extra kind
And I can see all the pollution so I must remind
That the only way possible to make it all sustainable
Is that we recognize that our fates are tied

The Earth is not given to you by your parents
It is loaned to you by your children
The Earth is not given to you by your parents
It is loaned to you by your children's children


To all my Nature Freaks... To all my Freaks of Nature...
Everybody that you see is an Earthling
And all the animals and trees are Earthlings
And even though that we know that they can’t speak
Make a choice for the voiceless, everybody sing...

You can try, you can try, to build it wide, to build it high
But you’ll never move faster than the speed of Earth
Track Name: Just Visiting
Well you may see a man close up his open hand
And see how greed might motivate a reckless fist
And you will witness pain of people's petty pursuits for gain
But you will never a hearse with a trailer hitch
No you will never see a hearse with a trailer hitch

Oh hungry ghosts in the land of milk and honey
They are people so damn poor all they have is their money

Truth be told, the truth will be told
Only hear it when we're listening
Will unfold for young and old
Cause in the end we're all just visiting
In the end we're only visiting

On this hedonic treadmill building appetite
With collections of those little things that shine
Oh camels will not fit through needle's eye
Your camels will not fit through the needle's eye

On the day they lay your body down to bury
There will be no pockets on the pants you're wearing
And on that day you will see what all it is worth
So earthlings don't keep your treasures here on earth

Because in the end we're only visiting
Track Name: Brainwash
Oh my brain's awash in the sea of misery
Over stimulated overly complicated from the info-tainment
Nobody to blame man
Just wondering where the people who are sane went now
Alpha beta delta theta
Brain waves up like a storm in a sea
Alpha beta delta theta
Move through the consciousness unconsciously

Got to take it apart look at it now give it a flip and then ripping it out
Wash your brain and make it count
Brainstorms clear the clouds
Of mental hand me downs, gotta get off of the merry-go-round
Synaptic gap connected now
Won't you help me sing it loud

Oh oh, hey hey!
You got to wash your brain

And I'm amazed by all this pollution in the waves
And how they gain from making us feel lazy and afraid
Subliminal invaders can't persuade us in a blink
So be careful cause you are what you think
So be mindful that your mind's full
A fine line between a kind soul and a blind fool
And in the kindness you'll find the mind less
The medicine is always deep inside the silence
Track Name: Lose Your Mind
So many people in this world so much suffering
I see the river on fire the mountain crumbling
I put my ear to the earth hear it rumbling
Which way will we go
People always say it doesn't matter anyway
Closing the heart cause they see it every day
But not this time we're going not afraid
Marching on even though we know

We will go through shadows
Fear will always justify
Even lead a good heart down to aggression
Come to know it's so simple
If love is not the answer then we just asked the wrong question

Don't get me wrong, I can see just how it happens now
Seeds of doubt falling around empathy is shutting down
All of the hatred in the world see where it comes from
From defending a god or a job or a loved one
Apathy's a pathogen only wants to spread
The longest journey ever's from the heart to the head
Like Theseus in the maze following the thread
The longest journey ever's from the heart to the head

Oh just got to remind the mind
Kindness coming back to human kind
To find your heart you got to lose your mind
To find your heart you got to lose your mind
Track Name: Don't Stop!
It all started one day with a thought
And then the thought became a word
The word turned into an action before it was even heard
And then the action come every now and again
Until it soon become a habit when
The ability to discern your will is slowly getting blurred
How did I get here nobody did force me
I must have brought myself
And I can see all around me all this pain and misery
How did I ever create this hell
And I can hear my guardian angle scream

If you're going through hell don't stop
If you're going through hell don't stop
In the darkest night a sliver still shines
So pick up your head and walk
If you're going through hell don't stop

Oh thought becomes word and word becomes action
Action turned into habit it's just habitual chain reaction
Of thought becoming word and word becoming action
Action turn into habit got to break that chain reaction
Of thought, I thought therefore I was locked in a prison of my own mind
And there's many miles to go on the road to Shangri-La
But I know I'm gonna find it in my own time

Cause in the end it's all ok
And if it's not ok it's not the end!
Track Name: Shangri-La
It's a leap of faith it's just a leap of faith
If you want to find this place
You've got to take a leap of faith
A mind tied in knots can never believe
A hand in a fist clench can not receive
We're lifting up the veil to see
That it's always been just beneath the own to feet

And I'm gonna make it and your gonna make it too
Cause you got me and I got you

Shangri-La, Shangri-La
On the road to Shangri-La
Seek and you will find
When you look out of your mind
We all reunite at Shangri-La

In this hurricane of experience
You are the roots that I hold on to
And no storm shall ever break this foundation
Of this tribe that we belong to

And i'm gonna make it and you're gonna make it too
Cause you got me and I got you

I got you I got you I got you know that I got you
And I can see you get me too
The only way we make it through
I got you I got you I got you know that I got you
And I can see that you get me too
It's the only way we'll make it through to

Shangri-La!
Track Name: Sweet Silence
You don't need my help with your surrender
You don't need a hand to draw your armies down
With your armoured divisions and your angry thoughts
The battle could be over now with just one sound
And it goes like this

Sweet Silence

All your plastic alters and your worries
All of your illusions now of solid ground
Stack up with my brick up inside your castle walls
But blessed bliss will be the day when it all comes down
And it sounds like this

You don't have to be that smart to do it
But you gotta be stupid if you don't
Isn't it crazy that we would know
A medicine that could heal the whole wide world
But we're so lazy we just won't
Try to find silence

You don't need my help with your surrender
You don't need a hand to draw your armies down
The war is over if you want it to be
So come on my sisters and brothers we got to
Listen to our Mother because one way or another
We are all destined to be
Returned to silence...
Track Name: Us & Them
And it's them vs. us and us vs. them
And a battle cry always seems to get an amen
And it's them vs. us and us vs. them
What you believe is what you receive

But what if it turned out to be
That we are they and they are we
All of this dichotomy is just a false conspiracy
What if it turned out to be there really is no enemy
What you believe is what you receive

Because you see love in in all or you don't seek love at all
You see love in all or you don't seek love at all
(Sing it with your enemy!)
Because you see love in in all or you don't seek love at all
You see love in all or you don't seek love at all

With everybody fueling it the fire will blaze
And crazed by the flames all the flags raised
Look into the face of the rage flame will illuminate
Keep the karma coming spinning in place
So let's all ask stupid questions
And question stupid actions
Because the fact is that factions are fearful reactions
And just fictitious distractions
Track Name: Tomorrow
Please don't walk behind me because I really shouldn't lead you
And don't walk to far ahead cause it's hard to follow
Let's just walk side by side and everything will be alright
If I wake up in your arms tomorrow
If I wake up in your arms tomorrow

Oh someday, someday when we are old and gray
And all our time is only time we've borrowed
Everyday I will say, everything will be alright
If I can wake up in your arms tomorrow
Lord let me wake up in your arms tomorrow

We will walk through the dark of night
We will see the monsters eyes
You and me we laugh all the while
Cause we can fly

And when your feeling down
I'll lay down on the ground with you
And sing a song to help dispel your sorrow
So just take me by the hand
Everything is gonna be alright
When you wake up in my wake my arms tomorrow
Oh when you wake up in my arms tomorrow
