Oh my friends It struck me true In the morning light May I describe to you Warm as wind Then lightening came Sparked in her eyes And set my heart aflame It was nature’s love Running through her veins Down the mountainside Out to the sea again And there I was Standing on the shore Mind calling me forth, sayin’… The door is open The door is open There’s a changing tide The door, the door, the door is open wide When I heard That we were dying My mind aflame My fears were multiplying All our tears And all the pain Came down like rain And flooded out the fire It was nature’s love The seasons change The rise and fall I saw you breathing then And all my fear I held in store Fell to the floor, sayin’… The door is open! The door is open! The wind is high The door, the door, the door is open wide How can one heart fit the whole world How can one little life change this cold world And if when we die there’s a soul world Then nature’s love’s cruel hand led us home The door is open Step into the ocean There’s a changing tide The door, the door, the door, the door… Is open wide! Come on and step outside Some people never want to never die But the door, the door, the door is open wide

Yes I know what I said But I was all up in my head Sometimes I don’t just know But I wanna see it grow Sometimes I can’t explain… Sometimes I can’t explain myself… It’s like… I need your body Like the earth needs the sun You keep me spinning All around as you burn Yes I know what I did But I couldn’t keep it hid If I let it go Maybe then it would show How can I explain… How can I explain myself… It’s like… I need your body Like the earth needs the sun You keep me spinning All around as you burn And if we get divided And my world goes dark I’ll be here waiting Fire still in my heart The gravity of our connection has got me stressing Seems like a million lifetimes and in my time it’s only seconds The gravity of our situation has got me shaking A parallel I feel to my devotion would be the ocean The whole blue ocean….. I need your body Like the earth needs the sun You keep me spinning All around as you burn And if we get divided And my world goes dark I’ll be here waiting Fire still in my heart

Speak Truth 03:24
Speak truth to power, speak truth unto yourself Speak truth and meaning til there’s nothing else Speak when winning, and when youre falling short From the beginning to your last resort Try to speak truth only Find you can hardly speak Wave your hands until somebody sees Speak truth in mourning Speak truth when you’re in joy And don’t pretend like I don’t know you boy Speak truth None of that he said, she said Truth None of that excuse me, I didn’t mean Truth Some of that come on and get it on Truth Come on and face it You’re not speaking truth You’re telling lies whenever it works for you When its easy, you come in riding high When it gets hard you set the truth aside Come on and finish We’ve known it from the start You’re not really here, it’s the player’s art And let’s be real You’re not the only one But I’m afraid that I might hurt ya, son I speak truth None of that he said, she said Truth None of that excuse me, I didn’t mean Truth Some of that come on and get it on Truth You are fire And I am air You end up burning And I can’t make myself care Speak truth None of that he said, she said Truth None of that excuse me, I didn’t mean Some of that come on and get it on Truth Speak Truth

If I could tell you something on my mind It’s in the air and caused a great divide. Everyone one knows but only some will say Something’s changing in the world today In California and the rising sea Stormy mirror looking back at me A soul admission only some will make A gentle prayer for all the human race Oh my god What have we done, what have we done Oh my dear ones, oh my dear ones We thought it was safe, but it was a gun We drilled the mountains for an endless war And raped the plains just to feed the poor If we could see just what we’ve really done Done to the earth is done to everyone And did you know it’s not so very strange To see inside in this Aquarian age And now we’re here but think we’re back so far If we looked around at where we are Oh my god Oh my god What have we done, what have we done Oh my dear ones, oh my dear ones We thought it was safe, but it was a gun Oh my god… Now after all I’m ready not to hurt My hands and knees returning to the dirt Smell of soil how long have I been gone Close to the ground ‘think I can carry on Oh my god What have we done, what have we done Oh my dear ones, oh my dear ones We thought it was safe, but it was a gun

Call you up, when I’m feeling down Drop a text, hey its easy now Come on over, put some music on It’s all good once your shoes a re off Dance a bit, come on and move your body Share a meal for three You, the truth, and me When the truth is almost three Laughing and running free Crying and can’t explain Listen you’ll hear him say Give loving kindness to me Give loving kindness to me… Be kind to me, and everyone you meet Because we’re all refugees From a land where we feel free Trying to live, in a way we’ll make it through Trying to give when we’re needing too Looking for justice, when we’ve all been screwed But some more than others Let’s be real sisters and brothers In a brotherhood of man We’re so far from breaking bread Quoting words that are old and dead If I cry will you hold me head Give loving kindness to me Give loving kindness to me… Then I feel free…. I feel free…. With all our walls We still get free To be… in peace.. Anywhere there’s loving kindness Take the truth to PCC Get a piece of fruit for free Show him a what’s real treat And not that white death sickly sweet Then hit Chocolati ‘Cause life ain’t black and white And our crew is tight Drink coffee and talk all night Are there answers to our questions Can we brave our own confessions Why are phones our new obsession How do we help friends with depression If this culture’s born to die At least we learned to cry Reached out in the night Touched a hand and found the light Give loving kindness to me…

I’ve got brothers help me keep the beat Sisters take the pulse down out on the street People getting worried, wish for outer space We’re gonna keep you dancing til you love this place Cause Mars is bone dry We tried the moon We’ve got nowhere to be, y’all Let’s rock this commune Refugees running ask for room and food If you think we owe you something we’ve got news for you But news came back from the satellite view home Turns out, people, we’re all one blue globe And Syria’s bone dry Tried to send them on through But there’s no better place, y’all Let’s rock this commune The road is hard but we know our way Still I'm scared everyday But some fears you're meant to run And some fears you can't avoid So take my hand as our ego's destroyed And we step in to the void I know a family with two moms and dads I know a country stepping through the glass I’ve seen a world gon’ be real one day Where every single one of you beautiful flawed humans give up the gun find love and shine away So wave your flags high Peace signs too Here we are together, y’all Let’s rock this commune Rock this commune

Sitting in the garden One day you asked me I said I can’t say Until I get where I’m going But lips sealed For generations Get standing ovations Now for letting it out I’ve been waiting for this feeling I’ve been waiting for the chance I want to change Put down the weight of the world Lay down beside you Change Lay my hands down Feel the blood run inside you You called me up Pulled me into bed I’d been wide awake On coffee and things they said Now my days drift My eyes half shut But with a soft gaze on What hasn’t happened yet I’ve been waiting for this feeling I’ve been waiting for the chance I wanna change Let my eyes close Find you still here Inside me I wanna change Open the window Feel the wind blow around me… This old world Almost gave up for good Seemed like no time To do the things we could Then loving you Weeks passed in a day There’d be time to build a life If we lived it this way I’ve been waiting for this feeling I’ve been waiting for the chance I wanna change Let the time go Let the spirit remind us. We could change Let our dreams grow See the children around us Around us…
