Freedom

Freedom is Freedom is Freedom is oh ya Freedom is undefined
No one can tell you what it means
because it's a state of mind

Rivers flow to and fro forces nudge the waters
so they go where they're told
choices are there the waters are free
but controlled.

Freedom is Freedom is Freedom is oh ya Freedom is undefined
No one can tell you what it means
because it's a state of mind

When we are little ones We have questions about
how things are done. Is there a rule of thumb?
On how to find happiness and love with freedom

Freedom is Freedom is Freedom is oh ya Freedom is undefined
No one can tell you what it means
because it's a state of mind

chords and lyrics sheet

Wonder

I wonder bout the people
who live without the means
to get them where they need to
be for bringing about change
that they look for in the models
they see all around them in the family
in the city in the schoolyard

Who are they?
I wonder what they could be?
Who will help them see... If you won’t?


I wonder bout the people
who can't seem to see
through their preconceptions
that they cling to for life and death
even if it conflicts with what they know
deep down to be reasonable
for our progress, for our culture, for our future

Who are they?
I wonder what they could be?
Who will help them see... If you won’t?


I wonder bout the people who ponder
how we're going to make it
to the next stage of this journey
through the cosmos all together
we must try to do our best to
create a world without hunger
without thirsting, without hatred,
without fighting and wars

Who are they?
I wonder what they could be?
Who will help them see... If you won’t?

Dreams

I treasure the things I see
and I see beauty
We wonder how to be free
to some degree
Every day can be new
if you choose

Life is full of endless dreams
with potential to come true
but not without attention
from you

Believe what you want to be true
it's all up to you
If your days feel like deja vu
it's time to pass through
into the unknown
dodging all the stones

Life is full of endless dreams
with potential to come true
but not without attention
from you

Learning from what
you’ve been shown
you are not alone
Wisdom must be acquired
before it is known
Peering into the divide
praying it will provide
Answers to assist us on this ride

Allow your mind to be refined
cleared and realigned
For silence stirs to unwind
all the thoughts intertwined
Many walk around blind
is what I find

Life is full of endless dreams
with potential to come true
but not without attention
from you

chords and lyrics sheet


Moon Time

The earth is held in place by forces,
unseen courses in space
Our lives respond to a planet,
that is planted in our embrace
It accounts for tides and cycles,
steady orbits and light
It circles around us and gives direction,
provides perspective in plain sight

Chorus
We’re talking about Moon Time, Moon Time
Moon Time, has rhythm and rhyme 2x

Years consist of thirteen,
twenty eight day cycles
forming the framework to use
Evolutionary systems of adapting
to survive and reproduce
Life as we know it is only possible
from the resulting stability
It has a mass of force not visable
using what we call gravity

Chorus

Time is a construct of fleeting moments,
relative motion in zones
We flow through the spacetime ether
in this suit of skin and bones
Connecting with what surrounds us
as we dance with what’s in range
Harmony can be realized
enhancing our exchange

Chorus

Tune Your Mind

Throughout history there has been
Ideas about how it all began
What plane we have all come from
And our existence from now on

It’s a mystery what separates us
From all the herds of nothingness
Is it because we can speak
Or something else
Like the ability to dream

Tune your mind with reflection
Use your attention with intention
Imagine what it is you want
If you’re clear, it will appear

Our thoughts create our world
Contrary to what you may have heard
Your mind’s power is so strong
Just by thinking you will affect the outcome

Reaction is the result of action
The vibrations impact energy patterns
They crash around like waves
Influencing the way we behave

This world is moving so fast
The chaos seems to cast
A web of confusion
Blocking us all from sound conclusions

I’m not here to say I know
What the future is going to hold
But tomorrow’s not just another day
Let’s start creating what do you say

Tune your mind with reflection
Use your attention with intention
Imagine what it is you want
If you’re clear, it will appear

Listen

The Earth is fine it’s been there a long time
Now experts claim we are crossing a line
Between our lives and all of future kind
The precise cause they strain to define
There are the chemicals, clean water & CO2
But see how far we’ve come through
scientific breakthroughs
We live today like the kings & queens of past
Yet most complain until they draw their last breath

Now won't you come and listen to me
I'll show you things that you never have seen
I talk of ignorance, I talk of greed
Hear my words if you hunger to be free

This begs a question that you should ask
What is the trustworthy view
through the looking glass
Cause all events can be seen from different sides
The ones in power decide how they guide
Factions are trying to control your thoughts
By planting concepts in a clean & tidy box
So you should always look between the f’ing lines
The absolute truth is hidden by design

Now won't you come and listen to me
I'll show you things that you never have seen
I talk of ignorance, I talk of greed
Hear my words if you hunger to be free

Volumes have been inspired in our past
That offer insight on how to be our best
Yet we choose to fight among each other
Instead of learning how to create a bright future
Love is key, and striving to be
A positive part of our society
Change is a constant no matter the time of year
But higher things are at work so have no fear

Now won't you come and listen to me
I'll show you things that you never have seen
I talk of ignorance, I talk of greed
Hear my words if you hunger to be free

Moments

When I was a young man absorbing this world
A fork emerged in the road
What I thought I knew did not ring true
My faith was distorting my view

The story I’d heard seemed simple and absurd
I pondered how far it could go
And as the wind blows thoughts arose
The questions started to flow

Could it be that one man died
For everybody’s sins
Or we all are ruled by aliens

And they have our souls trapped on earth
To keep us as their slaves
Or is it that consciousness just ends

It could be more complex than
We can ever fantasize
Or life comes from one source

But you know every time we think that
We have it all figured out,
We find we were wrong from square one

I’ve found one universal truth is that
Between every thought
Are infinite possibilities

In each instant you decide
The way that life proceeds
So you can create or destroy

If you want to capitalize on this experience
Observe what is happening right now

Cause the only moment that exists
Just slipped into the past
So don’t just let another pass you by

When I Was Wasted

Phrases are formed as a sequence of words
And countless are frequently heard
Which words to choose can be used and abused
When people are getting wasted
They seem to be sharing stories with me
That display the courage they thirst naturally
When they are sober

They say when I was wasted
Remember when I was wasted
I was cool when I was wasted

In this state of mind fate seems divine
And the narrative is aligned
With this one time you crossed over the line
And got totally wasted
If this occurs try to discern
Whether this story really needs to be heard
Or is it stupid 

No really this time I got wasted 
I was seriously wasted 
I was a fool when I was wasted

Now don’t get me wrong as I sing you this song
I love a buzz all day long
But I stay controlled as I let myself go
Even as I get wasted
Rolling with new plans,
avoiding one night stands
Keeping myself safe and away from gangland
It’s about choices 

It’s such a blast to get wasted 
Right now I am wasted 
You won't believe what I did
When I was wasted

When I was wasted
When I was wasted
When I was wasted

The Power To Be Alive

In the realms beyond what we perceive
Endure all souls that have been conceived
They surround us despite going unseen
We’re all connected as
we are playing out our scene

We all are looking to survive
You hold the power to be alive

There is a presence on the other side
Steering the tide toward a goal worth pride
Subtle sparks can be sensed
Between our thoughts
It’s where the truth lies
But awareness can’t be bought

We all are looking to survive
You hold the power to be alive

(Bridge)
Being alive forms varied shades
Don’t let the colors begin to fade
Discover brilliance
in the clouded beauty
So you can be rapturous and free

Choices arrive like the rising sun
Or in the shadows cast by the mountains
So tune your mind
to impressions you may have
And ask your heart
is this the right path

We all are looking to survive
You hold the power to be alive

Pop or Soda

There is a drink that I savor     
That burns my throat with dazzling flavor
It’s not rum, bourbon or whiskey
The craving starts when I get thirsty

It makes no difference what you say,
they taste the same either way
It’s Pop or Soda
It’s Pop or Soda

Your hometown does imply
Which term signifies
The bubbling bliss that surrounds
Your lips and teeth and your tongue

It makes no difference what you say,
they taste the same either way
It’s Pop or Soda
It’s Pop or Soda

Some people like to criticize
And assume they are right
but it can go both ways
You should not have to rephrase

It makes no difference what you say,
they taste the same either way
It’s Pop or Soda
It’s Pop or Soda

It’s Pop or Soda

What Life Is About

Our life begins before we appear
We have a purpose for which to persevere
So don't miss good things
Being controlled by fear
Alter your routine so you can steer
Toward the dreams you might have forgot
You know you know this, so get up and shout
That’s what life is about

Most people want a family to love
To choose a partner that will stay in spite of
The way we hurt each other
When there is no cause
At least forgiveness can give us some pause
Before we give up on what it’s all about
You know you know this, so get up and shout
That’s what life is about

We see the world through our own set of eyes
Our point of view is where the secret lies
The core difference between me and you
Is our experiences that separate us into
Unique perspectives for choosing the best route
You know you know this, so get up and shout
That’s what life is about
