Track Name: Names
The names of The Most High
Numerous as the stars in the night sky
And the ways to praise the name
Varietous as the shape of the snowflake
All hail the eternal living flame
Though the seasons change, yet the blessing remains
And the essence of truth and grace
Can take a new face on a new day

The names of The Most High
Luminous, numerous as the visions of the mind's eye
And the ways to praise the name
Varietous as the howl that the wolf makes
All hail the eternal living flame
Though the forms may change, yet the formless remains
And the essence of truth and grace
Can take a new shape in a new way

Take a walk and talk to Wakantanka
Learn to walk your talk
Only love will get us through these times
And all the world is on your side
Open your mind
It's a beautiful world outside
Plenty of ways to feel the rays
From the one that shines

Can't take what's cosmic and box it so stop it
A true heart unlocks it
No guise of advice shall suffice, can't define it
But seek and you shall find it
Can't take what's cosmic and box it
And if you think you've got it then you've probably lost it
The mind can't unwind what's divine, it's mysterious
And comes from experience

What's divine is inside,
When we quiet the mind than we find it
And we need to be reminded
It's a fine line between light and blindness
And your kindness reveals it, can you feel it?
The Universal Mind personified in time
We are the message of the blessing interwoven in life
We are the manifest presence of the I in the I...

Take a walk and talk to Wakantanka
Learn to walk your talk
Only love will get us through these times
And all the world is on your side
Follow the signs
It's a beautiful world outside
Plenty of ways to feel the rays
From the one that shines

Clear us of our judgments
Fearless of the consequence
Purity of conscience
Mystery of ages
Hidden 'neath the pages
History of changes

All hail
Seek and you shall find it
All hail
Comes from experience
All hail the eternal living flame
Seek and you shall find it
Can't take what's cosmic and box it
Can't take
Can't take what's cosmic and box it
That logic is toxic so stop it
It comes from experience
Track Name: Give Your Love
Nobody has it all figured out
Nobody really knows what it's all about
So we can spend our lives building
A false sense of security
Or embrace the sense of adventure
And the mystery

Life is a short, long series of unknowns, but
There is a deeper sense of purpose in love
The more you give, the more you get,
The more you discover
And it's not something you can ever run out of

It don't cost you nothing to give more love

Give your love, it will return to you
Give you love in everything that you do
Give your love, it will return to you
Give you love in everything that you do
And make it unconditional
It feels so irresponsible
But its the way we learn and grow
And helps us think we really know
What we're doing here

Though it may sometimes feel
The world is on your shoulders
I hope you learn the lessons life provides as you get older
And let the hard times just remind you that you're alive
Just like your breath
Which you can only see when it's cold outside

There's only one thing that can keep you from your destiny
And that's a mind that's set on what is not instead of what may be
So please, please heed my warning, humour me
Give up fighting, be set free
In this moment let love be

It don't cost you nothing to give more love

Give your love, it will return to you
Give you love in everything that you do
Give your love, it will return to you
Give you love in everything that you do
And make it unconditional
It feels so irresponsible
But its the way we learn and grow
And helps us think we really know
What we're doing here

Give your love
Give more love
Give your love
Give more love

Give your love when you don't understand it
When you're all down-side-up and you don't have a plane
It takes patience to make changes to your habits
The best thing you can do for yourself
Is to give your love to someone else

Give your love
Open up
Give your love
Open up

Give your love when you don't understand it
When you're all down-side-up and you don't have a plane
It takes patience to make changes to your habits
The best thing you can do for yourself
Is to give your love to someone else

Give your love, it will return to you
Give you love in everything that you do
Give your love, it will return to you
Give you love in everything that you do
And make it unconditional
It feels so irresponsible
But its the way we learn and grow
And helps us think we really know
What we're doing here
Track Name: We Are All Related
We are all related (x4)

Black and white, brown and tan
feathered, furred, in the sea and on the land
In the sky, you and I, stones and bones, wings and hands
Ocean, mountain, forest and man
Fathers and daughters and mothers and brothers and lovers
And all of creation, blessed be all that breathes in harmony
All we see in unity, one family

We are all related (x4)

As the cells of your body have life of their own
So are we upon this earth from which we have grown
As the cells of your body serve and protect the whole
So must we be for our mother, our garden home

We are all related (x4)

And the only thing that keeps us apart
Is our ideas about how we are
Better than, or not enough, but what if love
Could give us all a brand new start
as we open our hearts, open our hearts
And awaken to oneness

And the only thing that keeps us apart
Is our ideas about how we are
Better than, or not enough, but what if love
Could give us all a brand new start
as we open our hearts, open our hearts
And awaken to oneness

Awaken to oneness (repeats)

And the only thing that keeps us apart
Is our ideas about how we are
Better than, or not enough, but what if love
Could give us all a brand new start
as we open our hearts, open our hearts
And awaken to oneness

Awaken to oneness (repeats)

I asked the Spirit
Who are the least depraved of the creatures of the earth
And then the voice of the Spirit
Yes I swear I did hear it say, say
My son, consider the birds
And though the humans are tamed
Yet they are the least humane of them all
They must learn to take their place
For there is no master race
And humanity is just one essential part of the ecology
Listen carefully

We got one planet for all the masses (repeats)

We are all related (repeats)
Track Name: Breath Of Life
Breath of life (x4)

Some speak of finding their path
But I dream of leaving the road altogether
Return to the forest, and braving the weather
Embracing the footsteps of those who were braver
So let us make peace with the past
And let us discover a way that is better
A way that is better, a way that is better
A way that is better, a way that is better

Breath of life (x4)

There's nothing more satisfying, more gratifying
Than the next breath, grounded and present
With ambitions and lies we hide behind aside
We find the next breath, grounded and present
And founded in rest, the test of time will stand still
Until the next breath, grounded and present
Suspended in time, a blurry line between heavens
And still the next breath, grounded and present

Where there's nothing more satisfying, more gratifying
Than the next breath, grounded and present
With ambitions and lies we hide behind aside
We find the next breath, grounded and present
And founded in rest, the test of time will stand still
Until the next breath, grounded and present
Suspended in time, a blurry line between heavens
And still the next breath, grounded and present
And crowned with the scent on the wind
That blows in the moment were in
In the moment we're in

Breath of life (x4)

Ala ha ola aina (repeats)

From the moment I wake
To the moment I fade
I am only always
In the present moment
So if right now is all we have
Let's do our best to make it last
For we are only always
In the present moment

All in whom is the breath of life
are sacred and beautiful (repeats)

Ala ha ola aina (repeats)

Breath of life (repeats)

From the moment I wake
To the moment I fade
I am only always
In the present moment
So if right now is all we have
Let's do our best to make it last
For we are only always
In the present moment
Track Name: No Judgement
We live in a world
Makes me laugh, makes me cry
The way we live, the way we die
The joy and the sacrifice
And I'm in love with life
But the violence I despise
And I refuse to submit to the lies
That we cannot live in paradise
Cuz I can still see the light of God
In the gunman's eyes
Those beautiful
And sickly misguided eyes
Those beautiful
And sickly misguided eyes
They help me to realize

We're really all the same
We all feel love and pain
We all wish to remain
And forgiveness breaks the chains
This life is not a test
You must pass to get to the next
For you're no different than the rest
So feel this deep down in your chest

No judgement (x4)

And so I think that it's time
That we gotta get together and strategize
We're gonna have to learn to unify
To realize this desire to survive
If we can look behind
Our mind's disguise
We"ll see our ties
Our interchangeable human lives
And compromise our sense of pride
Cuz it's not about wrong and right
It's about love and fight or flight
And to those who have seen the light
You know it's not all so black and white

We're really all the same
We all feel love and pain
We all wish to remain
And forgiveness breaks the chains
This life is not a test
You must pass to get to the next
For you're no different than the rest
So feel this deep down in your chest

No judgement (x4)

I am the peaceful
I am the fighter
I am the thief
I am the provider

I am the gunman
I am the witness
I am the Good Samaritan
But it's none of my business

I am the father
I am the mother
I am the hater
I am the lover

I am the killer
I am the healer
I am the addict
I am the dealer

I am distinguished
I am the outcast
I am the activist
I am the bureaucrat

I am the innocent
I am the guilty
I am still worthy
Although undeserving

I am the giver
I am the taker
I am the builder
I am the breaker

I am the brick
I am the wall
I am the one
I am the all

I am brave, I am scared
I am free, I'm impaired
I am bold, I am shy
I have love, I have pride

I have things that I hide
I have dreams held inside
I've held back and I've tried
Now I know in my mind:

Every old, every young
Every daughter and son
Every man and woman
We are strong we are one

We are part of one another
Connected to each other
My sisters and my brothers

We're really all the same
We all feel love and pain
We all wish to remain
And forgiveness breaks the chains
This life is not a test
You must pass to get to the next
For you're no different than the rest
So feel this deep down in your chest

No judgement (x4)
