Track Name: Balance
balance in the drawer / harmony restored / i’m a mix of violence and everything else you get / do not ask me why / if you go i will surely die / i can’t go on / i can’t go on / i just can’t go on / i dreamt of you last night / before the bugs could bite / i dreamt of you today / i planned to run away
Track Name: Reincarnation
reincarnation / bread for the elephants / did you really think part of the plan was to be number one? / it all moves so fast / it’s hard to make the good things last and last / it’ll match your needs based on your words and deeds / did you really think part of the plan was to be number one? / it all moves so slow / it’s hard to make the bad things go y’know / escape these walls / karma resolved
Track Name: Wisdom
wisdom ate the pig before she knew what she did / we’re learning best through pain despite the bells they rang / i’d have gone through the rain / i’d’ve smiled through the pain / sad for what she did, she wrote this to the pig / i would apologize, if i could see your eyes
Track Name: Grace, Love, and Mercy
grace, love, and mercy return to me / ma / i said roz / i need a job
Track Name: Soul Evolution
it’s just a soul evolution / it’s not like the sky’s gonna fall / it’s not / we solved it before your solution / the bum won the gun from the(m)all / i know you know / you know i know / it’s just a soul evolution / stand on your feet and be proud / this one is better than ever / but this one is not on the house
Track Name: Bodhisattva
i don’t need these earthly things / yet i’m here trying to sing / everybody follow me so that we can all be free / i’m sure you remember all we’ve done / are we done? / can we still play out in the rain or is it time to run? / you never close your eyes anymore when i kiss your lips / you never play out in the rain / the two things i miss / i miss
Track Name: Vibrational Attainment
hello darkness, my old friend / it’s kinda nice to have you back again / mr. moonlight on the wall / i pull the blind / he won’t see us at all / vibrational attainment / energy can’t die / sensational arrangement / cuz neither then can i / the tree follows me to the sea / the key to everything’s the energy
Track Name: Free Will
feel as light as a kite tonight / everything will be alright / if all you did was stand and stare / everything would be alright / you know me a bit i guess / just enough to break our hearts / i love the way your mouth’s a mess / the way free will just falls apart / she spent her last quarter randomly / as if she did it every night / she stopped the world and just stared at me / so everything would be alright
Track Name: Are One
we are one / we are god / we don’t like to be wrong / you don’t mind things in your eyes / i’m all sixes and sevens and nines / a crow on a boat is all i know / it’s all i know / look out below / you don’t see me any other way / you don’t like me any other way / when the water gets rough / and the bad words aren’t bad enough / you can smile while i float / smile and know the crow, the boat
Track Name: Manifestation
i wanna know where you were when i called / i wanna know where you were / you knew i was blue when i called / you knew i was blue / our ideas become beliefs / our beliefs become reality / so let me close my eyes and think: take off your dress and send it to me
Track Name: Conscious Detachment
what is just is / whether or not you want it / what is just is / there’s not much you can do about it / you get a moment to do / to float through all of this / they say it’s called conscious detachment, but i don’t know what that is / smile and grin / at the change all around me / put screws to the moon / rearrange, but know it’s folly
Track Name: Gratitude
i’m giving you everything cuz i’ve heard it’ll come back to me / but just in case that shit’s not true / please keep it safe for me / could you read that book to me? / give and you shall receive / i’m giving you everything cuz i’ve heard it’ll come back to me / but just in case that shit’s not true / please keep it safe for me / when you help others / you help yourself / that’s why i’m busy helping everybody else
Track Name: Fellowship
gather round my house now
Track Name: Resistance
i want you to think about all the things you said / how you wished me dead / i hope you remember right / with the story you tell / how i wished you well / there’s not much you can do cuz what you resist you draw to you / i can’t help but think about that little boy / the boy with the coin
Track Name: Attraction
i wanted to know / i needed to know / i’d read in a book somewhere how far the stars go / i couldn’t recall / can you recall? / i’m sure i told you cuz i tell you all / all i know / these things are attractive to me / these things / they really are / these things are attracted to me / like the moon, the sun, the planets, and the stars
Track Name: Reflection
do you see yourself in me? / i know you do / cuz i see myself in you / yeah i do / i don’t like what i see and neither do you / what should we do? / we stare at the floor bored / with nothing to do / nothing new / nothing to do / nothing new
Track Name: Unconditional Love
get sick / get well / get home to hell / you don’t really know what you want / you don’t really know what you got / get home / no nurse / surprise / it’s worse / then love comes / do you remember how it would feel? / no strings / no conditions / don’t make no deals / don’t stir the pot / as you were / to rot / red wine / take the rest / on time / burn the test
Track Name: Magnetic Affinities
i gotta know what i’m gonna do long before i’ve been born / don’t make any sense / made me feel dense when i learned what’s all in store / sat on a chair / i felt really scared weeding through what’s barely there / a pocket of gold / naked and cold / shakety-shake and gasping for air / a gallon of duck and soap on a rope / deciding on a life unknown / a pretty smile and a change of clothes / shakety-shake / my life’s unknown
Track Name: Abundance
it’s all right here
Track Name: Divine Order
everything is as it should be / there’s no accidents / the captain happily tells us / it’s all making sense / but if you think for a minute of escaping / don’t / the law of divine order tells me you won’t
