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

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

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)

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

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)
