Track Name: Coming Alive

Tried to run, I've been trying to hide,
Pressure in my chest, feelings bursting inside,
Neck stiff and tight, elastic band round my brain,
So out of control, feels like I'm going insane.

Went to the doctor, here's what she said,
“You've been living inside your head,
You have to let go, or you won't grow.
You need to forgive, so you can live.”

I started to cry, scenes flooding my mind,
Images so vivid,
It was like it was happening again, just like the first time.
I cried the tears, felt the pain,
Went through the hurts, again and again.

A voice started talking to me,
Saying, “It's all right,
You're still alive, the sun is shining outside.
The worst is over, you've survived,
The worst is over, you're alive.”

Coming alive, I can feel me,
Finally free, I can feel me.
Track Name: We're Here

No need to say a word
No need to shout out loud
No need to worry
I'm here
And I'll always be around somewhere.

I am everything,
All life is me,
I can touch you in the air,
To be or not to be is everywhere.

Connect on that higher plane,
Inside we're all the same,
Part of the greater whole,
Together all one soul.

Eternally, we are one,
Trust with open eyes,
End lies,
The truth shall set you free

It's good to be alive,
Feeling so much inside,
My mind and my body so clear,
No fear,
No fear to be alone,
We're here.
Track Name: Peace, Love And Healing

Love is the healing gift of our soul,
Unselfish acceptance, becoming truly whole,
Love breathes joy, and love breathes hope,
Love breathes endless possibilities,
Love connects us all, and fills our lives with harmony.

A newborn takes her first breath, and screams out her first cry,
An old man sighs deeply, says goodbye and closes his eyes.
Life cycles ever turning, spinning round and round,
No one lives forever, we are all spirit bound.

We have all made mistakes, and have scars deep inside,
The ones we love have hurt us, we feel shame we try to hide,
Forgiveness is the answer, to heal our soul,
Share your pain with others, forgive and let go.

To heal is to restore, sickness into health,
Each one of us is special, celebrate your true self,
Medicine can help you, and healers show you the way,
Your mind, body and spirit, growing more whole each day.

Believe in your power, to transform the path you're on,
You have the potential to take change and become strong,
Miracles still happen, no time to hesitate,
Believe in your power, it's not to late.
Track Name: Welcome To The City
Welcome To The City

Come bring love to the city,
Come to the city of love.
If we don't bring love to the city,
All that's left, is a city of hate.

Come bring truth to the city,
Come to the city of truth.
If we don't bring truth to the city,
What remains but a city of lies.

Come bring peace to the city,
Come to the city of peace.
If peace won't come to the city,
All that's left is a city of war.

Welcome to the city,
To the city welcome.
We'll all come to the city,
Bringing love, and bringing truth, and bringing peace,
Build the city,
Bring your love,
Bring your truth,
Bring your peace,
To the city,
Make the city- a city of peace.
Welcome to the city.
Track Name: Crying Inside
Crying Inside

Crying inside,
I don't know why I've been crying inside,
I don't know why I've been lying inside,
Dying inside.
I don't know why I've been crying inside,

Screaming inside,
I don't know why I've been screaming inside,
I don't know why I've been angry inside,
Fearful inside,
I don't know why I've been screaming inside,

Tears are falling,
But I can't feel the pain,
It feels like rain.
Me is unreal,
I can't feel,
Me is unreal,
I can't feel me.

Tried to run,
Tried to hide,
All the feelings bursting inside,
Scenes of deaths,
Hurts of deceit,
All those painful memories.

Tears are falling,
But I can't feel the pain,
It feels like rain.
Me is unreal,
I can't feel.
Me is unreal,
I can't feel me.
Track Name: One

Running away,
Turning my back,
Hiding my eyes
Everything’s black,
Head in the sand,
Heart on hold,
People I love left out in the cold.

What a relief,
To close my eyes,
Feel me inside,
In touch with my guide.
Unlock the chains,
Open the door,
Search in my soul.
My spirit is whole.

Making the time,
To sit all alone,
No clock on the wall,
Don’t need a phone,
Watching my thoughts,
Letting them pass,
All by myself,
Peaceful at last.

A speck in the sky,
So far away,
A grain in the sand,
Washed by the waves,
So tiny and small
No ego at all
Oneness in side,
Stillness in side,
Track Name: Mirrors

Strapped inside a hospital bed,
Twisting and turning its head,
Fragile eyes stare in fear.
In that embryonic form,
Curled like a womb hurt and worn,
The eyes try to turn away from the mirror.

Crying with no tears,
The eyes try to hide,
The memories stored inside,
Trapped beneath the glare.
It pains the eyes to see,
The pictures so frightfully reflecting,
The terror of the injured mind.

If you gain the strength to look upon,
And face the darkness written on,
The face of the mirror of the mind.
Will you shutter at the thought,
That the very truth you've always sought,
Is no other than insanity of life?

Take one last look at the mind lying naked,
To the stethoscope and drug and pin,
And cling to that warm womb you're escaping in.
And breathe and beat and be deaf and blind,
And hope you never have to find a mirror,
That can strip you of your mind.

Through the dark it's plain to see,
The danger of insanity,
Is suddenly much closer than before.
And whispered words and silent screams,
Were buried deep and locked in dreams,
But now the madness lures us to our fall,
And the mirror can reveal it to us all,
And the mirror can reveal it to us all.
Track Name: Dreams

Lock your eyes into your head,

Plant yourself into your small wee bed,

And come with me on a journey far and wide,

Hop onto my dream and with me you can fly,

Let your mind go and on a journey we can ride,

Grab hold tight to your pillow and on a journey we can ride.

Flying on nocturnal thoughts with no reality,

Close your eyes come along see the dreams with me,

Visions of forgotten joy the past appears forever,

Awaiting future merriment, the future life we'll see,

Past treasure and future pleasures, a mental jubilee,

Cuddle up warm and see the dreams with me.

The floral fashions fill the air and fall far from the ground,

Broken shoots and scattered leaves are swirling round and round,

And as you leap into the air and freedom sings a song,

You want to laugh in tears of joy,

And cry in smiles of glee,

You want to break, you want to burst and dance in ecstasy,

You can't hold back, it's too late,

So come along with me.

Unrelenting legacies are leaping from the past,

Unrestrained childhood scenes are fleeting fast at last,

Bursting blindly, imaginated world of innocence,

Untouched by society our childish mind can soar,

In a made up world of fairytales and fallacies galore

So come along with me,

And together we'll explore.
