Track Name: Right thru my Heart
I been trying all day since I got out of bed
The song that you are
Is playing on in my head
I'm at a loss here
How did it start?
You could go traveling,
Run right... through... my heart

I can't afford that
You'd just eat me up
I'd run out of wine babe
I'd run out of cup
Jesus visible! just give it up and
Just let it go
Wherever it winds up at that point... you'll know

CHORUS
And maybe I love you
And maybe I don't
And maybe you will girl and maybe you won't

I need an opinion
One other than mine
You're out of this world so
It must be divine
I said a prayer that I might understand
What I should do
If you held.. out... your hand

If I take it in mine
Will my life fall apart?
You could go traveling
Run right... through... my heart

Maybe you're right
I should just give it up and
Just let it go
Wherever it winds up at that point... surely, we'll know

CHORUS
And maybe I love you
And maybe I don't
And maybe you will girl and maybe, ...you won't

Someone hit the lights
We're on our way out
We don't belong
Beneath the shadows of doubt
Yeah we'll see the angel
Behind the dark face
Believe me, she's shinin'...
It's no mistake

Oh what a beautiful message you are
You're proof that God loves me
Oh what a beautiful message you are
You're proof that God loves me

Maybe you're right
I should just give it up
And just let it go
Wherever it winds up at that point... someone will know

CHORUS
And maybe I love you
And maybe I don't
And maybe you will girl and maybe ...you won't

I been trying all day
Since I got out of bed
The song that you are is
Playing on in my head
I'm at a loss here
How did it start?
You could go traveling
Run right... through... my heart
Track Name: I am Alive
I can't speak for the black man
I can't speak for the Chinese
And I can't speak for women
And no one speaks for me
A black man saved my ass in prison
China's made me think
And a woman gave my body being
Now all I do is drink

Who am I?

Tell me what I'm living for
Is there something coming after?
Have I been through this before?
Let me go
Let my spirit be at peace
Give me one taste of love before I cease

CHORUS
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I've done the best I can
I have felt the wings of angels
But I don't know who I am

I've loved a lot of people
I have tried with all my might
Oh may Jesus please be real
When I check out of here tonight

Is this some kind of prison
Will I ever be released
They say God is always watching
Does he ever notice me?

CHORUS
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I've done the best I can
I have felt the wings of angels
But I don't know who I am

If it comes let it come quickly
Clouds of mercy bring the rain
May the darkness die forever
May I be with you again

May the sacrifice be golden
May the lamb be fully crowned
And may God forgive all evil
When I finally...
When I finally hit the ground

CHORUS
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I've done the best I can
I have felt the wings of angels
But I don't know who I am

May there be a silver lining
Horses can't escape the sea
Oh the waves crash on the shoreline
But they never will be free

I can see their white manes billow
As they thunder on the shore
I will love you forever
I can say... nothing more

CHORUS
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I am alive
And I am dreaming I'm alive
I've done the best I can
I have felt the wings of angels
But I don't know who I am
Track Name: Brotherhood
Brotherhood is a word
Some men believe in I have heard
Some men believe I have heard
That brotherhood is just a word

Babylon where have you gone
Once your red skirts film the dawn
The carriages of the world are drawn to your door
For just a little more
Just a little more
Just a little more
Just a little more

Brotherhood is a word
Some men believe in I have heard
Some men believe I have heard
That brotherhood is just a word

But there are those who've tried too hard to find
The secret heart that rests
Beyond the gates of a restless mind

They may all be only dreamers
They may all be only fools
But some have said they are the very best
Of all the masters tools

Babylon where have you gone
Once your red skirts film the dawn
The carriages of the world are drawn to your door
For just a little more
Just a little more
Just a little more
Just a little more

But there are those who've tried to hard to find
The secret heart that rests
Beyond the gates of a restless mind

They may all be only dreamers
They may all be only fools
But some have said they are the very best
Of all the masters tools
Track Name: I'm a new age Twinkie
I'm a new age Twinkie
And Surfer Doggie did me!
Surfer Dog did Sherry
And Cathy and Amber and Gaia
And Rainbow Girl!

I'm a new age Twinkie
My brain's a piece of pastry
I'm a goddess in my mind
Men worship my behind!
I make teenage boys go blind!
(And my uncle's doing time)

I'm a new age Twinkie
And Dredlock Doggie did me
Backwards and sideways
And with some ropes and pulleys!
Dredlock Dog did Sherry
And Cathy and Amber and Gaia
And Rainbow Girl!

I'm a new age Twinkie
The yoga master did me!
I read the cliff notes on rebirthing and massage
And Reiki
Now I am a Master!
Oh now I am a god...
Actually a goddess!
A tantric dancing fool!
I'll unscrew your head and dance on the wires
And tie a knot in your tool!

I'm a new age Twinkie
What it is... and what it was.
What do they mean...
"Goddess is as goddess does"?
So I change my mind a hundred times
And scream and pull my hair and then
Get real kind, sweet and calm!
Who says I'm not "all there"?
And where is "there"?

Just because I'm 17
And didn't finish school...
Hey, I can read and write!
I know Chomsky is a... guy!

I identify with everything!
( What... that?")
Yeah, that's cool too!
See I had my tongue pierced and got a tattoo
Of Lao Tzu
On my ass!
It's so, so, so... fun?
Totally hot!

I got a text message
From my spirit guide...
(Yeah, he did me too!)
And Sherry
And Cathy and Amber and Gaia
And Rainbow Girl!

From the inside...
Oh I forget where I was!

I think I'm almost finished!
My story's almost told
Someone told me it was fun to watch
Pretty girls grow old!
So fun!
It's... so fun!
It's... uhhhhh
It's ahhhh
Ohhhh!

Here comes another Doggie....
Time out!
She'll be back!
Track Name: Love is Bound
Hello, what a fine unfettered feeling this morning brings
As I, lay dreaming behind loves eyes
Let me just say, I think some special angel
Wove this dust into shape
For you are, so much more
Than just a rhapsody of flesh
Although your touch
Is such a sweet cleansing fire
Love is bound, to heal me now

Too long, I've been too long gone
In dreams and aftertastes
Of longing for the longing to depart
Or break down into meaning
And melt inside my heart
I got lost, silly fool that I have been
I have no idea, how I got to where I got to
Love is bound to find me now

With you, everything has wings
And subtle dreaming shades
Of rainbows ever brilliantly displayed
I know you are, that part of me
Mystically transformed, from a common soul
Now my life can wondrously unfold
Sweet alchemy of life
Shining through the prism you have broken up the night
Love is bound, to illuminate me now

I wish, only this and that much more for you
Have given me the fullness
That makes hunger forget, it hasn't eaten yet
The sweet electric fire makes me young
Forever giving life, I sing you to the stars and back again
It's impossible to know where you are and
I begin, to see, endlessly
Love is bound, to be free
