FUTURE 04:53
Do I rise only when you fall Or an illusion Do I use you or honor you Do I use me or honor me What is at the floor of all my thought Where is the room Where my dreams are kept Nighttime is my shadow’s ease Bring my demons to the day Or they remain a menace Do I rise only when you fall Is it all real Call it out Our greatest fear is letting it go Embrace new power Inside, inside, inside There is wisdom Inside, inside, inside Do I¬¬ only rise when you fall Future, future, future, future Sending your saviors The artist, your children The heart driven Into a raging solitude When we stand out Your persecute us You’ve programmed them to obey But your system fails They are still saints Closest to your world Furthest from the surface There are spirits who know They explode into space Can you face them now In their rightful place Place them high like clouds Set it up Our greatest fear is ascending Embrace no ending Decide, decide, decide It takes wisdom to decide, decide, decide Where we have come from You cannot guess Future, future, future, future
Battleground 05:42
You think that this is the end It’s falling away Some stare without any understanding But they’ve got so much to say Sympathy abounds Jokes swirl round You question your place But my love Your worth is not determined that way Lay your disguises down Set your armor free Come with me This is a battleground Shame will only weight you down Come with me No gains to embarrassed and ashamed I am living proof You may forget it all together But they won’t follow suit Be prepared be strong The road is very long When you’re forging it new And my love Our paths will make the greatest debut We’ve wasted too much time on fruitless feats Stop living your life by what they’re thinking If you don’t we leave it all to them If you won’t we start over again Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go Let go, let go, let go
Joga 03:36
Becoming 04:53
What is essential That I remain me Or that people agree With the person I show them Can it be both Where do I go When nobody gets it Into the forest Thoreau, though thorough It neglected What could be done When I’m more than expected How do I teach you my language When no one before me expressed it Using the same words Is all I have Signaling back to the home I invented What I have witnessed Is people too busy with sin of their own To go without incident Giving no credit to life on my planet Keeps us at a distance Shying away is a violence equivalent Social anxiety warns that We’re failing our mission Conditions, always the culprit of people Who live in the shadow of Power delivered by external systems Aren’t you sickened Then why continue to lie In a bed that you didn’t make Giving restrictions To everything that you have ever loved Limiting skill and the incoming visions Of children It’s wicked, convincing Conditioning will have you stand and stare While I pour out my heart And you’re not even blinking People are crying alone And then smile when everyone’s drinking Nature is here and it’s nurturing All of the wounds we’re bleeding from Go to the limit of where thought Is imminent, pushing beyond If you want to get anything done Of substantial quality Your comfort zones Are poisoning I will not sit On bridges to greatness I’m going, I’m going, I’m going I accept myself for who I am I accept that I am different And I understand All the brightest stars Were shining far ahead of their time High above I love who I’m becoming Hiding who we are Ain’t so comfortable Why stay quiet trying To always fit in Take that chance Say how you feel We’ll find commonplace Place when we are real
Pulse 05:19
Pulse, we’re putting out the call The war outside is false It echoes from within Presents itself again Isn’t it strange How we call the outside world Crazy, deranged, insane There’s a pulse and it’s fading But we claim we’re still alive Through all the feelings we negate We can do better We’ve sacrificed Too many thoughts to sadness And the anger in our minds We’ve praised perfection Over connection, over connection There’s beauty on the other side If they can keep us from getting there Maybe we’ll continue to fight That’s their hope But peace is known from inside Not behind imaginary lines Your guess is good as mine If they can keep us fleeing enemies Maybe we’ll continue to hide All is dark, powered down the mind For convenience In a stream of imitation life There’s a pulse of denial Like a lifeline, we’re clinging tight A place where others are to blame And fame is worth any price they name But we know better, we’ve sacrificed Too many nights to violence And too many days to shame We’ve praised perfection Over connection, over connection
I am learning the new I am courageously discovering me I am only interested In genuine interaction I am feeling peace I am alive And I thrive with ease I am the creator and I am not here to cater to you I am here to be pleasing to me Awakening love With every step When I figure it out inside Then you and I can connect And it’ll be real No cliché no niceties Cause if I can’t be honest with you About who I am Then how are you supposed To get to know me Or treat me right I can’t expect For you to read my mind When my own words I can’t express I put in work And others who have come before me Are leaving signals All the answers have been written We must only see It’s just one view But hopefully you’re doing the same And we can meet at the summit Cause it’s coming and it knows my name I’ve been this way Many, many times before And it’s about love More than anything cause Love is at the core We are redefining success We are unlearning What we thought we knew We are equal to you Yeah We are in tune with the universe And we are in bloom We are gardening so pardon The dirt in the room Yeah We live in joy As often as possible We are unstoppable We got the optimal stance We don’t hold back Yeah We do not chase dreams We are developing skills We realize there’s more to living Than just paying the bills so Yeah Love is at the core
I Am Light 03:22
Clarity 04:58
When day to day Plays and replays We must engage In ways unique I call it out My spell is bound Clarity, discover me We are more powerful each day A spectacular display of light We are made from all the galaxies up above Knowing we needn’t go far To realize who we are And walk upon the earth as one Touching the sun Staying on a path denies it Being a seeker and we never find Truly it’s elusive to the undecided Finding clarity Clarity, discover me I am at peace, my thoughts at ease Releasing
My love My determination Fuel this existence I have peace I find prosperity With no resistance This desire I am holding for My highest radiance Keeps me grounded I am focused My heart cause It just makes sense But in my life Things have tried to teach me When I thought They were pulling me down And in my life, People tried to reach me I couldn’t see Where I fit in but now I know my worth I see my beauty So I know yours It’s so clear to me Can you see the way I see you I hope you do I am ready to take My leap of faith Positively, definitely I’ll be winning all the way Centered in purpose I know myself better every day Getting to focus Together we can Take on anything I create myself anew I’m adventurous and A true friend I’m here til beyond the end You are quite the brightness to behold You’re brave and you are bold Alive with laughter You matter
