Track Name: Illuminate Your Halo
Change your lens so you can see the light,
Open those diamond eyes (and say that),
I’m the one,
I’m the one forgotten sun,

There’s a chance you feel it in your core,
But it’s been ignored (I know that),
I’m to blame,
I’m to blame for everything,

The time you spend is never time you’ve lost,
Connect the lines,
You’re the rest of us,
You’re all of us (under the sun),

Open the veil in front of the truth,
Walk on through (and say that),
I'm enough,
I am enough,

Walk the lines, you'd never cross,
Ignite your light, when you’re all tangled up,
Realize, you’re walking in circles,
And Illuminate your halo,

Down, down...pushed down,
The world is sick and we’re living with it,
pushed to the limit (all of us),

Make your move but make it fast,
Erase the past (and say that),
I'm the one,
I'm the one that you want,

Grab the light and show it where to go,
Make the circle whole (confess that),
I’m the sun,
I shine like the sun,

Walk the lines, you'd never cross,
Ignite your light, when you’re all tangled up,
Realize, you’re walking in circles,
And Illuminate your halo,
Track Name: What Are You Connected
It’s clear to see,
Your connected to the system,
You’ve lost control and now your the victim,
A victim of your mind,

All this time, Its always passing by,
Its only in your mind,
Only you can decide, you decide

Change… Its coming to get ya,
Faith… It’s always in your heart (been there from the start)

Fabric of sound...
waves pulling you down,
To this world we are bound.
As your head is spinning round and round

So connected to the system,
you can barely see the vision
Cause your still looking with your eyes,

All this time, it's always passing by
It's only in your mind,
Only you can decide, you decide

Change… Its coming to get ya,
Faith… It’s always in your heart (been there from the start)

What Are You Connected

Faith it grows,
Listen to your heart it knows,
Throw your ego out the window
It's a very pretty sound,
You feel it all around (x3)

Change… Its coming to get ya,
Faith… It’s always in your heart (been there from the start)

What Are You Connected
Track Name: AntiBots
I played one note wrong, and I messed up the whole song, came in a measure late and missed out on something great, well I’ve been to the end of the road just to find nothing was there, and I left with a smile on my face because I have the need to care...and I have the need to wonder about things that are bigger than life itself. I have the need to question my actions when they’re starting to affect me health. I don't grease my wheels to feel, I’m feeling right now and it’s real, I don’t need a meaning I’ve only got the feeling and I can explain, yes I can explain. We are not robots, we are on this stage, playing music the way that music is made, we don't fancy machines or masquerades we are doing it our way. Well, I’ve got the need to see, I’ve got the need to believe, what’s right in front of me, I don’t grease my wheels to feel, I’m feeling right now and it’s real, I don’t need a meaning I’ve only got the feeling and I can explain, yes I can explain. We are not robots, we are on this stage, playing music the way that music is made, we don’t need fancy machines or masquerades we are doing it our way. I will never follow, I will never follow, I will never follow you. Even if I had something to say, I could not communicate, I‘ve got no mouth to speak with, I’ve got no eyes to see with, only flashing lights and sound, are coming around. If you can see the light, then you would know that it’s bright, I will never, I will never follow you. We are not robots we are on this stage, playing music the way that music is made

Track Name: City Lights
When the firestorm falls on these city lights, All that you’ve known has turned to ash, The faintest sounds on these windy nights, reminding you off the distant past. All the men out there working hardened nights, trading their love, while they're searching for gold, All they wanted was an honest life, Now they end up doing what they’re told. The change has been led, By many other men, those across the river, and the ones before, now effortlessly I expire into the night. Into the night…We want a life worth living, They gave us all that we need, Our souls have all gone missing, They’re waiting to be free, When the firestorm falls on these city lights, All that you’ve known has turned to ash...The change has been led, By many other men, those across the river, and the ones before, now effortlessly I expire...into the night! Into the night…I go, We want a life worth living, They gave us all that we need, Our souls have all gone missing, They’re waiting to be free, (Are you ready for what's to come, Are you ready for what must be done), Effortlessly I expire...into the night.
Track Name: Hear You Calling
Into the night, I hear you calling, I hear you calling for me. Follow the light, I must go, I must go. Until the grace of a better day, In a better way, I am yours. After the fight, I hear you calling, I hear you calling for me, Maybe you’re right, I’m not a man, I’m not a man. Until the grace of a better day, In a better way, I am yours. Heaven waits for me, I’m not blind to see, The changes coming ahead, What does it mean, Is it all a dream? Heaven waits for me, I’m not blind to see, Is it all a dream, or is it what it seems. So don't you wake me up, Because I am calm… I am calm. Heaven waits for me, can you finally see, the changes, coming ahead. Heaven waits for me, I’m not blind to see, Is it all a dream, Please don’t wake me up, Because I am calm.
Track Name: Mirrors of Sound
Concentrate your attention...To the mirrors of sound, There's energy flowing all around, Reflections of familiar space, That you create. Feeling everything...as it passes through, Close your eyes, reveal the truth, You'll grow with every breathe you hold and release to a brighter tone. You care...a little, You care...yes you do. Catch the wind...let it sink in, Be aware of now, be aware within, You consume the life you make, Give away what you love before you take. You have the faith to change your ways, As you float up and down on this wave, You know, you know the light you show, Yes you hold. You care...a little, You care…too much, You care…not enough, You care...You do, you do, you do. You care...a little, You care…too much, You care…not enough, You care…just like you should, now.
Track Name: Take Me In
Take Me In, Take Me In. I’m Your old friend sin. It’s happening all around you. So just give in. With a new friend every night, hows one to know what's right, Do know your soul, don’t know how you’ve grown, But I’ve been into your home. Why do I hold your key? We’re still discovering. Am I the only one who needs something, To believe. Because it’s in our hearts and it’s in our minds, All our friends seem to act alike, so quick to turn out the lights, This is no way to get by. So you change your clothes, and you comb your hair, Willing to go anywhere, without thinking twice to care, about yourself. Take Me In, Take Me In, I’m You’re old friend sin. It’s happening, happening, all around you. Take Me In, Take Me In, Lord, Take me in, It's happening, all around…But I won’t give in. Don’t know what to do, don’t know what to say, Don’t know what to send your way, Don’t know where to go, don’t know where I’ve been, Don’t know who to call a friend. But I’m pushing forth, I keep heading north, Because south I won’t find my worth, East or west, I feel it in my chest, And I won't rest until I’m Home...again. Take Me in, Take Me In. I am sin.
Track Name: Three Eyed Bird
At midnight, the three-eyed bird he flies, Bringing stories to me of another life, and waking me up in the morning light. At midnight, I close my eyes just to wake to another life, and I’m swimming with the stars in the sky. At midnight, I close my eyes, Just to swim with the stars at night, And I’m following a brighter light, Well I’m waiting for a sign, Been waiting all this life Spread your light, Let it divide then watch it multiply, Can't keep it all for yourself,If you want to fly, fly Realize you were born wise let imagination guide, There's no lines, no space or time, Ascend to your higher mind, You say you wanted all your life, So Say hello to the world, Say goodbye to the fool, As you wake up under your new moon, At midnight, I close my eyes just to wake to another life, and I’m swimming with the stars in the sky. The sun rose up, To an empty sky, Three eyed bird, By my side, The moon fell down, Brought the stars, To meet the earth, And fill our hearts, Won't you fly…away….Fly Away my three-eyed bird by my side...every night every night. What do you want the world? Open your eyes, You have everything everything, Feel the sun, Let it rise. You are everything everything, All of us, All at once, We are everything, everything, And we are the world And we are light We are everything, everything Be at peace, Be with love This is everything, everything
