Track Name: Slumlord
Pack the house, hit the road,
climbed up and over mountain tops
Baby you and I on the other side
We cast a net, threw a line,
wondered if the feelings right
Just wanted a place to call all our own
Find a job, you got two,
working too much, getting through
Dropped three grand trying to land,
make a choice and move
This is divine intervention
undefined by convention
Water it and watch it grow
But this city life was harsh
and it worked us to the bone
Maybe desperation breeds stupidity
Went ahead and signed a lease
to a little hole in the wall,
and the walls were caving in

We gave our money to a slumlord,
but we’re getting it back
Lifeline, something to believe in when you're
Steady keeping it on, steady keeping it up
It’s energy anyway (just energy)
so we’re giving it back
Lifeline, something to believe in when you’re
Steady keeping it on, steady keeping it up

Up up up up and away,
luck what did you say, shucks
Look around see that natures always growing
Even since the lives of the ancients,
we can feel the vibrations

Baby cause it was our love
you know that kept us afloat
Dreams and visions of our souls
reflecting light into dark holes
You know the infinite scope,
peer through your lens and
watch the universe turn

We gave our money to a slumlord,
but we’re getting it back
Lifeline, something to believe in when you're
Steady keeping it on, steady keeping it up
It’s energy anyway (just energy)
so we’re giving it back
Lifeline, something to believe in when you’re
Steady keeping it on, steady keeping it up

We gave our money to a slumlord,
but we’re getting it back
Lifeline, something to believe in when you're
Steady keeping it on, steady keeping it up
It’s energy anyway (just energy)
so we’re giving it back
Lifeline, something to believe in when you’re
Steady keeping it on, steady keeping it up

Lost deep inside
why did I lie (oh why did I lie)
Darkness, darkness always tries to hide
Now that I'm out free from the doubt
Truth can be painful,
but this is the only way
to find our real beauty
Love's alive, its shining right through me
I can see you’re by my side,
letting go and opening our eyes

We gave our money to a slumlord,
but we’re getting it back
Lifeline, something to believe in when you're
Steady keeping it on, steady keeping it up
It’s energy anyway (just energy)
so we’re giving it back
Lifeline, something to believe in when you’re
Steady keeping it on, steady keeping it up
Track Name: Paint Roses Red
Spider webs know, set up for the kill
Cobwebs don't care if it's dust or flies
I got my own web, it's a sticky mess
But it keeps me safe tucks me in at night

Paint roses red
Wake up laughing in bed
Homes filled with things
Don't mean anything

I tickle your toes you slept in way too long
Love is a moment lost in time
Life isn't a race, there's no finish line
I'd rather live than die trying, trying

Paint roses red
Wake up laughing in bed
Homes filled with things
Don't mean anything
Which one's a dream
It's not all as it seems

You're the queen Alice
You are Queen Alice

Bottom line we're going far
Cause in this dream
there's no escape
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Paint roses red
Wake up laughing in bed
Homes filled with things
Don't mean anything
Which one's a dream
It's not all as it seems
Track Name: Rubberbands
Life shines through,
all things are life beams
We flicker in and out, beings
Creating and revolving (destroying and evolving)
Music mutes the pain (meanwhile)
We're learning letting go and then
there is a freedom in now

We're in the thick of it,
the disconnect is stealing our souls
But we can do this,
own our positive selves and be whole
Instead of trying to control all things,
open a channel where we all can sing

Ah shine, ah remember
Love is true and life delivers
Be the one, ignite the giver
That's right we live here
Look at us we are human beings,
so much more than what we seem
Together we are growing

It's not the anything material
you bought or you sold
It's not decaying
nor believing that a spirit grows old
I sure don't have the answers
but I'll own my truths,
Love is real maybe life is proof

Me and my rubberbands
Bouncy ball falling out of my hands
Nobody’s gonna walk you through this
Me and my rubberbands
In the moment so we don't need plans
Nobody's gonna walk you through this
Instead of trying to control all things
Open a channel where we all can sing

Me and my rubberbands,
bouncy ball falling out of my hands
Nobody's gonna walk you through this
Me and my rubberbands,
in the moment so we don't need plans
Nobody's gonna walk you through this
Instead of trying to control all things
open a channel where we all can sing
Track Name: Whole World's Laughing
Pinstripes don't mean anything
If you got your blues cap on
Cause in fashion there's only one secret
It's your mood that shapes your clothes
But I would give anything to be naked and seen
Not for this flesh but for a being
I would go dance in the streets,
smile at people I meet
Go skipping pebbles just for fun

The whole world's laughing
Whole world's laughing today
Till perma-grin hurts your face
Best kind of pain

What fine taste, the soul's decor
Paint landscapes with your eyes
Ancient cities and newborn stars in space
The blueprints in your heart
I'm climbing to the tallest tree,
wanna root through my feet
And sing a song for everyone
Maybe it would sound like this
or like rain on a fish
This water planet's lots of fun

The whole world's laughing,
Whole world's laughing today
Till perma-grin hurts your face
Best kind of pain

Cause everybody
Is their own variety see
See everybody
Dances a little bit different to the beat
And we ain't changing for no one

The whole world's laughing
Whole world's laughing today
Till perma-grin hurts your face
Best kind of pain

Don't fall asleep, I'm barely waking
Don't fall asleep, I'm barely waking
Pinstripes don't mean anything
Track Name: Growing Pains
Let go, be empty, set free, yes please
Moments returning, beings becoming
Heart beats, the world spins so fast
Unreal, I just wanna, I just wanna slow down

You know what we mean
when you're feeling it feeling it
Dancing so deep you know
you're being it believing it
You know what we mean
when you're feeling it feeling it
Dancing so deep

Now we are under, above
Music forever is love
Redeeming beating hearts
Rhythmically becoming a glove that fits
We have been the stars all together
Individuals, but the light can only be severed
Light knife, existential other side of a coin
Like life, night and day, we can only keep going
Spins as it does, spirals falling and rising
Enough was always enough
Down can also mean up
I wonder

What have we done
World's burning up, slow down, easy now,
turn this music up
Where are we going
Oh so fast change is happening again
What happens now
Is up to us whatever we wanna be we are
Growing, growing, growing pains

Life can be so busy
where we live in our minds
Truth is rising right along
with every sunrise and set
Look up, stars speak, remember
Origins of everything, beacons of splendor

Life changes ever new,
a very strange strange brew
I believe in us and hope that you’re
believing in you
Only way we're gonna make it
for our people and our mother
Is to stop this mass extinction
Work with one another

What have we done
World's burning up, slow down, easy now,
turn this music up
Where are we going
Oh so fast change is happening again
What happens now
Is up to us whatever we wanna be we are
Growing, growing, growing pains

Grow into another today
We can do it this way
We've the power to change
Moments we're becoming aware
While they used to fly by
as a calendar sighed
Life heals if it's open to light,
and it's open to night,
and the phases between
Infinite as the nature of truth
Where the Goddess remains
and the spiral is proof

What have we done
World's burning up, slow down, easy now,
turn this music up
Where are we going
Oh so fast change is happening again
What happens now
Is up to us whatever we wanna be we are
Growing, growing, growing pains
Track Name: Thorsday
I'm an astro boy, never mind this noise
Could have split your soul wide
You can let it run, but you're the only one
Beauty under the skin
where your baby has been
Wide world and a love that always wins
We run over ourselves making love to ourselves

The world is tons of fun, but I get overrun
Staring up into that sun
It just turns and turns,
sometimes we get burned
Oh roller coaster souls
We love our rock and roll
Love is strong but it digs us holes
And I've been digging on you
since digging wasn't cool

Oh, it just happens to me
I know I don't know,
a little trick and believe it
Oh, it just happens to us
We know, we don't know,
a little love and no fuss
Hush hush, hush hush

Oh, it just happens to me
I know I don't know,
a little trick and believe it
Oh, it just happens to us
We know, we don't know,
a little love and no fuss
Hush hush, hush hush

Walk forward and through in your spirit shoes
Walk forward and through in your spirit shoes
Transcendentally
Staring brightly, holding your first love
Your light to prove your heart is true
Walk forward, you walk forward
Soul walks forward

Oh, it just happens to me
I know I don't know,
a little trick and believe it
Oh, it just happens to us
We know, we don't know,
a little love and no fuss
Hush hush, hush hush
Track Name: Home Grown
Solar flares and gardens bare
The rain will come some day
The internet, technology has gotten in my way
Someone's trying to tell me, look and pay attention
If it lives, if it grows than it's gold
If it breathes, you believe

Home grown, home grown
Home grown, home

The moment is happening, listen, look up
We're planting the seeds
and we're spreading the luck
We've been up, down, copy pasted
Life can test you, stop and taste it
Slowing down is a major prerogative
I want to take hold of the positive
Becoming the beings we know
that we always have been

Home grown, home grown
Home grown, home grown
Home grown, home

Fly away, fly away
These hands are caked in mud,
Fly away my love

Home grown, home grown
Home grown, home

Make believe cause children see
Philosophize your mind
Cause you will grow up stronger still
The ego won’t beat your stride

Home grown, home grown
Home grown, home grown
Home grown, home grown
Track Name: Frequency
Waking up inside of this skin
It isn't always easy
You gotta let a little light in
Stars are always shining
Moon calls out to the tides
Tides bring life and rebirth
Words came out in a flurry
Please never mind me if was in a hurry

Maybe it won't mean nothing at all
Yeah maybe it won't mean nothing at all

Spilling out the soul right now
It isn't always easy
Offering a song to sing and dance,
and feel the way a heart beats
Baby our forever is a becoming us now,
we can never stop
How could we ever try to go back
You know love beats true at the core
Just sing to the score
No less and lots more but

Maybe it won’t mean nothing
after all is said and done, played and sung

We rise, take a look in our eyes
Reckon this is all going down,
right about now
Ah love please remember your sign
Life will align
Vibe to the frequency

Vibe to the frequency

We rise, take a look in our eyes
Reckon this is all going down,
right about now
Ah love please remember your sign
Life will align
Vibe to the frequency
(choose our reality)

Vibe to the frequency
Track Name: Love is Forever
Black, black as asphalt baby
This heart is red as plum wine vinegar
In a bottle on my window sill
A love letter, the thrill is real
What do you want to say to me
Talking bout the birds and the bees
And if you never say it again
Then baby we just could be friends
But my kinda love sets souls on fire
My love is your desire

Love is forever a treasure you can't buy
Oceans of doubt are so shallow we get by
Hope is our boat though it's small we survive

Talk, talk is cheap
But baby those actions they speak
They ripple out louder than words
Changing lives not selling verbs
but spreading light
In this world that's spinning round
It'll slow down if we find our ground
And if we stick together
through the bad weather
We'll find out what we're about
Cause all human beings need different things
We all need a little more love
You know it's true

Love is forever a treasure you can't buy
Oceans of doubt are so shallow we get by
Hope is our boat though it's small we survive

Love is forever a treasure you can't buy
Oceans of doubt are so shallow we get by
Hope is our boat though it's small we survive
Track Name: Get Up
Haphazardly the words had slipped as I sped
Looking up to find the truth,
finding questions instead
Looking down I was not quite so backwards,
yet not ahead
No more regrets now get it right on task
Still thinking of a feeling that lasts
Forever sexy future past
Waking and walking and recently talking
Old ways are fumbling, life is so humbling

Get up everybody get up
Find a positive, hold on, never give up

How can I balance unbalanced
Not plugged in yet not unplugged
Days awake are fully beautiful, infinity shrugs
Lots of love is nice
and yes today is true as such
Remember a moment so on it and in it forever
Your lips, a touch
You've got curves my body can feel
We meld so cleverly, blissful appeal
Within those eyes this lover can heal
Kisses to steal sweetheart

Get up everybody get up
Find a positive, hold on, never give up

Lady love you've got me spinning
Now we’re feeling so right
Obviously lady luck is on my side,
this is our night
I won't stop until your body quakes
Even after love you give me the shakes
My One,
you wake me with your big sunrise
Multiverses in your eyes
Our love stops time
How wonderful is it to come in a rhyme
Get it, you got it, we get with the plot
Long distance, non stop

Get up everybody get up
Find a positive, hold on, never give up

Stick with your star
Hope it keeps on rising, forget about it
We can't control this
Stick with your sign
I feel the darkness too, but forget about it
Together we get back up
(together we’ve got back up)

Get up everybody get up
Find a positive, hold on, never give up
Track Name: Now
This is a moment known as now
How sad it's overrun by the when or the how
you gonna get those bills paid
Illusion of time, the lives it takes
What can you say life, let love live war is wasteful
We'd rather not, we'd rather peace thanks
Like a life that's on a slow burn
Slowed in fact to find a soul yearns

Open me up like a well worn novel
Often misread, misunderstood, miss ah well
Did you feel something this time
It doesn't matter, but I feel fine
Satellites can trip on this shit
I hope it scrambles up brainwash signals a bit
Reconnect with roots of world trees
Barefoot music sets your soul free

I need this music, yes I need music
I need this music, right now

Smooth the go, remember winter froze,
and however spring did linger, summer’s fall now
Staccato melody beats true meets blue skies
Whisper, release, legato love-song, sunrise

Life twists and goes, my how it grows
And all we are in origin, back to light

I need this music, yes I need music
We need this music, yes we need music
Right now

I need this music, yes I need music
We need this music, yes we need music
Right now

Right now
