The dolphin's cry
The way you're bathed in light
Reminds me of that night
God laid me down into your rose garden of trust
And I was swept away
With nothin' left to say
Some helpless fool
Yeah I was lost in a swoon of peace
You're all I need to find
So when the time is right
Come to me sweetly, come to me
Come to me
Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin's cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
It's in the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Oh yeah, we meet again
It's like we never left
Time in between was just a dream
Did we leave this place?
This crazy fog surrounds me
You wrap your legs around me
All I can do to try and breathe
Let me breathe so that I
So we can go together!
Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin's cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
It's in the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Life is like a shooting star
It don't matter who you are
If you only run for cover, it's just a waste of time
We are lost 'til we are found
This phoenix rises up from the ground
And all these wars are over
Over
Over
Singin' la da da, da da da
Over
Come to me
Come to me yeah la da da da, da da da
Come to meback to top
The distance
Let him come into the city
Let him find his lucky penny
Let him put it in his pocket
And shake it all around
I've been to pretty buildings, all in search of you
I have lit all the candles, sat in all the pews
The desert had been done before,
But I didn't even care
I got sand in both my shoes and scorpions in my hair
I saw thatů
Oh the distance is not do-able
In these bodies of clay my brother
Oh the distance, it makes me uncomfortable
Guess it's natural to feel this way
Oh, let's hold out for something sweeter
Spread your wings and fly
My car became the church and I
The worshipper of silence there
In a moment peace came over me
And the one who was beatin' my heart appeared andů
Oh the distance is not do-able
In these bodies of clay my brother
Oh the distance, it makes me uncomfortable
Guess it's natural to feel this way
Oh, are we locked in to these bodies?
Let's hold out for something sweeter
Spread your wings and fly
Oh, are we locked into these bodies?
Are we anything at all?
Let's hold out for something sweeter
Spread your wings and fly
This distance is dreamin'
We're already there tonightback to top
Sparkle
I'm gatherin' up
My friends today
And those who
Recognize the face
As the vision that changed my mind
From hate to faith
Was as simple as grapes to wine
I'm gatherin' up my friends today
All these hookers and soldiers and swine
And would-be saints
All alone in their rooms that sparkle in their eye
Play a song that they'll come outside
To see if
Love will overcome
If this love will make us men
Love will draw us in
To wipe our tears away
The day that I was so sweetly sung
By the wind and the thunder moved by "someone"
The feelin' of being lived was so strong
The giver became the gift, all one
The day that I was so sweetly sung
The wind seemed to whisper softly "oh son,
Don't wait for the seas to part or Messiah's to come
Don't sit around and waste this change, to see it!"
Love will overcome
If this love will make us men
Love will draw us in
To wipe our tears away
Love
Love
Love
Love, hey, yeah
Love, this day now, this day that I was so
Sweetly sung, I know, I know that
Love will overcome
Love will overcome
If this love will make us men
Love will draw us in
To take our fear away, wipe our tears away
Love
And all my friends are here
In the city I sing my song
In the face of the hooker, the soldier, the swine
I found it, I found it, I found love!!!
Love will, love will, love will
Overcome
Overcomeback to top
Run to the water
Oh desert speak to my heart
Oh woman of the earth
Maker of children who weap for love
Maker of this birth
'til your deepest secrets are known to me
I will not be moved
I will not be moved
"Don't try to find the answer
When there ain't no question here
Brother let your heart be wounded
And give no mercy to your fear"
Adam and Eve live down the street from me
Babylon is every town
It's as crazy as it's ever been
Love's a stranger all around
In a moment we lost our minds here
And lay our spirits down
Today we lived a thousand years
All we have is now
Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
These streets below the moon
And I will never leave you
'til we can say "this world was just a dream
we where sleeping now we are awake
'til we can say
In a moment we lost our minds here
And dreamt the world was round
A million mile faal from grace
Thank God we missed the ground
Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
With a nuclear fire of love in our hearts
Yeah I can see it now Lord
Out beyond all the breakin' of waves
And the tribulation
It's a place and a home of ascended souls
Who swam out there in love
Run to the water
And find me there
Burnt to the core but not broken
We'll cut through the madness
Of these streets below the moon
With a nuclear fire of love in our hearts
Rest easy baby, rest easy
And recognize it all as light and rainbows
Smashed to smithereens and be happy
Run to the water and find me there
Run to the waterback to top
Sun
Let the world be the world
Let the dreams unfurl
Let it run it's own game
Let it dance with itself
I didn't put it here
Gonna let it ride
Gotta master, crazy on the other side
Wakin' me up
I ain't got no brains
I can't trust my eyes
What good's a beautiful day
If you can't see the light
I can't find my fate
Well then I must be blind
With the force and fire of love
That's taking over my mind
Wakin' me up
Obligin' me to the sun
Obligin' me to the sun
Sun sun merciful one
Sun sun
Sun sun won't you lay down your light on us
Sun sun
Let the world be the world
Let the girl be the girl
Let her beaty move ya
Let her dance be your guide
Let your hunger grow
But don't eat the fruit "too low"
Keep climbin' for the kisses on the other side
Wakin' me up obligin me to the sun
Obligin' me to the sun
Sun sun merciful one
Sun sun
Sun sun won't you lay down your light on us
Sun sun
All we need is to come into the sun
We've been out in the dark for so long
All I need, all we need, all I need, all we need, yeah!back to top
Voodoo lady
Light up a cigarette she said
And calm the fuck down
You got a serious side to you
That could give the whole world a frown
Now nothin' really mathers to me you see
Check out the holes in my gown
Let your eyes lose a focus a little
Let your guard calm down
I was thirsty for everything
But water wasn't my style
Guess we might have to teach me something
Guess we might have to show me how
Now put out that cigarette she said
Somethin' ain't right in here
It's tied to the both of us, I ain't sure now, it isn't clear
We could have been born helpless children
Beggin' for our next meal
I could be a voodoo lady, just a classy hooker
Playin' the field
Classy holy hooker!!!
Hey! I've made up my mind, yeah
I came to see your sign
Disappear this mornin' but come back tonight
Light up a cigarette she said
And calm the fuck down
Relax and let your ears hear this beatiful song
That's hidin' underneath the sound
Underneath the sound!!!
I made up my mind
I came to see you fly
Disappear this mornin' come back tonight
Voodoo lady
Voodoo lady
Voodoo lady
I was thirsty for everything but blood, wasn't my style
Voodoo lady
Did I dream you up or are you for real?
Are you for real?
Are you for real?back to top
Where fishes go
Yeah I found god
And he was absolutely nothin' like me
He showed me up like some dime-store hooker
Who was plain to see
I couldn't take it anymore so I went back to the sea
Cuz' that's where fishes go
When fishes get the sense to flee
Where you goin' now?
Whats your plan?
Yeah I found god
And he was absolutely just like me
He opened my mouth, looked down my throat
Told me I was thirsty
He said Ibeen, I been, I been
Been in this water all my life
Never took the time to breathe, breathe,
BREATHE!
Whatcha doin' in this darkness baby?
When you know that love will set you free
Will you stay in the sea forever
Drownin' there for all eternity
Whatcha doin' in this darkness baby?
Livin' down where the sun don't shine?
Come on out into the light of love
Don't spend another day
Livin' in the sea
Livin' in the sea YEAH!
I couldn't take it anymore
So I went back to the sea
Cuz' that's where fishes go
When fishes get the sense to flee
Breathe, breathe.
Whatcha doin' in this darkness baby?
When you know that love will set you free
Will you stay in the sea forever
Drownin' there for all eternity
Whatcha doin' in this darkness baby?
Livin' down where the sun don't shine
Come on out into the light of love, child
Don't spend another day, no no
Whatcha doin' in this darkness baby?
Come on out into the light of love
Come on out into the light of love, child
Don't spend another day
Livin' in the sea.back to top
Face and ghost (the children's song)
You got it bad
You got it good
You saw the sun
Like you knew that you would
We gotta make this better
Gotta make this right
Ain't no peace in the valley baby
'til the darkness turns to light
Can you hear that children's song?
Can you take me to that place?
High above the lamentation up on the desert
Plane
Do you hear that children's song?
Can you take me there?
Lost in the maya
Overboard in the sea
There was void and then that water broke
Then something called "me"
How a trip to the desert to look at the sky
It's like never-ending mirrors
Playing tricks on my eyes
Can you hear that children's song?
Can you take me to that place?
High above the lamentation up on the desert
Plane
Do you hear that children's song?
Can you take me there?
The face and ghost my guide
I must move on
It's the face of one ravaged by love
It's both dead and alive
You got it bad lover
No you got it good
You saw the sun
Like you knew that you would
In spite of my confusion
Up above all my pain
I gotta death grip on this vision
Here we go again
The face and the ghost my guide
I must move on
It's the place of one ravaged by love
It's both dead and alive
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Can you hear them singing?
Can you hear them singing?
Can you hear that children's song?
Can you take me to that place?
Do you hear that pilgrim's song?
Can you take me there?back to top
Feel the quiet river rage
Always fighting the storm
Afraid to suffer the wound
All praise to that conscious one
Who always suffers the wound, child
Suffers the wound, child
Hey!
Suffers the wound!
Never turns from love
Give it up
Always try to explain
Afraid to lay naked in the sun
He's crazy, she dances in the light
The crowd cheers, they won't put up a fight
Hey!
Suffers the wound!
Never turns from love
Give it up
Until my heart is free to roam
She won't leave me alone
Saved by the river now
Saved
Always fighting the storm
Buildin' shelter to house our lack of love
We're only here for a while
Tear it down and suffer the wound
Hey!
Suffers the wound!
Never turns from love
Give it up
Until my heart is free to roam
She won't never leave me alone
Saved by the river now, saved
(never turns from love, never turns to hate)
until my heart is free to roam
she won't never leave me
saved
(never turns from love, never turns to hate)
always suffers the wound, never turns to hate
never turns to hate
saved by the river now
always suffers the wound, never turns from love
never turns to hate
an invisible mississippi, ganges or a nil
I can feel the quiet river rage
Forcin' my lips into a smile
Don't believe that the world is empty
Just too noisy to hear the sound
I can feel the quiet river rage
And I'm fallin' down
Saved by the river nowback to top
Meltdown
Like himaalan cold winter
These jaws of kali yuga
Yeah it's a crazy kind of cold
A lifeless slumber in a stranglehold
Yeah tibet, she can't even touch this
I'd rather freeze in her forests
We're in a spiritual winter
And I long for the one who is
Fire!
Amongst the dreamers
You are in my heart
Like the sun on the icecaps
My only friend in the prison
The long lost meaning to the story, story
The divine and ancient wisdom
How could it be that you've graced my night?
Like a pardon from the governor
Like a transplant from the donor
Like a gift from the one who is
Fire!
Amongst the dreamers
You are in my heart
Fire!
Amongst the dreamers
You are in my heart
In a place where everything dies
It's you I follow
See by the fire
Of my darlin', yeah!
Fire!
Amongst the dreamers
You are, you are
In my heart
Like a pardon from the governor
Like a transplant from the donor
Like a kiss, like a kiss
From my darlin'
Yeah!back to top
They stood up for love
Naked lovers feel the blood beneath their vains
Electric nerves communicate
With tiny explosions through our brains
Who is this energy that never left or came?
Give rise to passion the only glory
Of this human story
I give my heart and soul to the one
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Looking back to our birth, forward to our demise
Even scientists say, everything is just light
Not created, destroyed but eternally bright
Masters in every time lord in everyplace
Those who stood up for love down in spite of the hate
In spite of the hate
Who put that flower in the barrel of that gun?
Who lit the candle that started the fire,
Burnt down the fortress, the throne?
Who could house all the refugees in a single shack
Or a lowly bungalow?
Who lives in a different dimension, free from the
Struggles we know?
I give my heart and soul to the one
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Looking back to our birth, forward to our demise
Even scientists say, everything is just light
Not created, destroyed but eternally bright
Masters in every time lord in everyplace
Those who stood up for love down in spite of the hate
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
They live in the light
We made it to the moon
But we can't make it back home
Waitin' on a rescue that never comes
Made it to the moon
But we can't make it home
Maybe home is where the heart is given up
To the one, to the one
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Looking back to our birth, forward to our demise
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
They live, they
They stood up for love
Stood up for love
Stood up for love
They stood up for love
Stood up for love
Stood up for love
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Masters in every time
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Stood up for loveback to top
We walk in the dream
I was wrong
We are not these bodies alone
In a dream with a mind of its own
I, I know you long
To be tethered
And tied to the heart of the one
The one that be layin' you down
On that ancient ground
Nothin' more to be found
Ah yeah
Now we walk in the dream
But dream no more
To live a life in love a thing in common was
We knew there was somethin' more
Now we walk in the dream
But dream no more
To live a life in love
To hear the voice in the wilderness
The other side of the door
Somethin' more
I feel strong
I'm finally at peace
The war is all gone
By no cause of my own
Like an eagle cuts through the air
No time for fear
Faith in his wings takes him there
Now we walk in the dream
But dream no more
To live a life in love
The only thing in common was we knew there was somethin' more
Now we walk in the dream
But dream no more
To live a life in love
To hear the voice in the wilderness
The other side of the door
Somethin' more!
More than these
Women in the streets pullin' out their hair
Somethin' more
Somethin' more than all the pain we feel
Somethin' more
More than we could dream of, all light
Love-bliss, no death and no fear
No fear!!
Now we walk in the dream
But dream no more
To live a life in love a thing in common was
We knew there was somethin' more
Now we walk in the dream
But dream no more
To live a life in love
To hear the voice in the wilderness
The other side of the door
Somethin' more
I was strong
Oh yeah, I was strongback to top
Dance with you
Sittin' on the beach
The island king of love
Deep in fijian seas
Deep in some blissful dream
Where the godess finally sleeps
In the lap of her lover
Subdued in all her rage
And I am aglow with the taste of the demons driven out
And happily replaced with the presence of real love
The only one who saves
I wanna dance with you
I see a world where people live and die with grace
The karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
I see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
The stilness in your eyes
Convinces me that I
I don't know a thing
And I've been around the world and I've tasted all the wines
A half a billion times came sickness to our shores
You show me what this life is for
I wanna dance with you
I see a world where people live and die with grace
The karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
I see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
And lead us back to a world we would not face
In this altered state
Full of so much pain and rage
You know we got to find a way to let it go
Sittin' on the beach
The island king of love
Deep in fijian seas
Deep in the heart of it all where the godess finally sleeps
After eons of war and lifetimes
She smilin' and free, nothin' left
But a cracking voice and a song, oh lord
I wanna dance with you
I see a world where people live and die with grace
The karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
I see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
And lead us back to a world we would not face
We would not face
We would not face
We would not face
We would not face
We would not faceback to top
