Almost a Capella

Light up ahead, light up ahead, light up ahead I’m moving through a tunnel of concentrated time Watching the moment open, wider and wider and wide I think it might consume me But there is no other side Just light up ahead Just a disappearing horizon line Filled with lightening bolts You can hear the angels singing on the rim Bathed in the light The light up ahead Heavens gate is opening Into the fields of answered prayer Out of the prisons of Disneyland Out of the television's eye Up through the dark tunnel of mortality To the light up ahead Planetary rainbows break on the shore Of the mysterious island that is rising from the mist That rises like a curtain Halfway across the ocean of life and death Shimmering in the Light up ahead There is a way out of the darkness A spiraling stairway around a column of light Easy does it Steady as she goes Easy does it You are very close To the light up ahead

Beautiful little Oriental girls Deep and mysterious eyes Far from the free world Deep in the jungle I Hide from the tracers I melt in the darkness to stay alive And I dream of the ocean Dream of the sea I close my eyes as the waves cover me I pray I survive Though a part of me dies And is buried forever Beneath foreign skies Beautiful little Oriental girls

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

I am Alive 04:41
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

Brotherhood 04:47
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

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!

Let the band play on let the music be sweet Let us dance in this moment of love till we are complete Let time stand still, Lord I know that you will And when the moment arrives I will love you just like this You know I just can’t miss You know I just can’t miss On a night like this A night like this A might like this You have taught me all I ever needed to know So let me thank you one more time before I go Let time stand still, Lord I know that you will And when the moment arrives I will love you just like this Won’t you stand so close, till there’s no distance apart And look me in the eyes while you steal my heart Let time stand still, Lord I know that you will And when the moment arrives I will love you just like this You know I just can’t miss You know I just can’t miss On a night like this A night like this A night like this

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
