Track Name: Conundrum
i must stop looking outside of my soul
for the answer i was given a long time ago
if i just look deeply for the outcome
i will know the reason for all the conundrums
taking their sweet time
and fucking with my simple mind
ain't that the way it goes
my darkness is pure
my darkness is shining
are you a dawn or dusk child?
do you see the first light in the sky?
the sun is going to rise up
but if you know who you are
and you know we are one
beat your buffalo soldier drum
and praise your heart
and sing this song with me!
Track Name: Say Yes
i'm a child, sun, please give me a reason
i will take anything that you have for me
because i am star dust without you
i'll give anything i've got to stay dreaming
just bring me back home
but to sell my own soul and remain in this bardo
because you've left me once before

now i'm a ramblin' man in search of my nest
so bring me back home and i will say yes

i will dance and be saved by the rays of revolution and change
if you could just spare me the space
i'd step out of my grave
and find a reason to sparkle again
quit the behavior
transform the terror
and hear the sweet hummingbirds song
whispering close in your breath

i feel you in my skin warmth in my sin
i feel you in my skin warmth in my bones
warmth in my toes
everyone knows

i will say yes to the beat in my chest
Track Name: Miss Mary
miss mary's love it comes in waves
as it crashes against the shores
of my material veins
my mind's made up of velvet as she spins around
got my pigments all shifted
motioning up and roots sinking down
sounds of color and light
are filling up my mind
as chemicals combine
explosions exploding
exerting a fight
miss mary she's twisting turning
a dream with real life
and i'm just like
this feels really nice
the sun's shining brightly
and it feels really nice
so please come home to me
miss mary
Track Name: Lion's Breath
i'm digging down deep
to where my soul used to be
before i gave it away to the devil
on my hands and knees
ringing the smoke rings out from these
memories that i've lost
i've lost them trying to harvest them
through the silence
of cold floors
intention is now manifesting
opening up into the mother lord
forgiveness i'm full to the top of emotional trust
in the unfolding of it all
forgiveness i'm full to the top of devotional lust
in the universal laws
because i'm a lioness and i'm
taking care of this
virus that's been putting out the flame
i'm a lioness and i'm taking care of us
hey mama forgiving is the first exchange
that must take place
between you and my father
because you're full to the top
unfolding
and i'm full to the top
unfolding
don't be a fool mama, it's inside of you
it's inside of every little thing you do
it's inside of him and it's inside of her
and it's inside all the flying bees
and all the dying bees
and the birds
it's inside the sun
and it's inside this earth
and it's inside all the little grains of
dirt
Track Name: Insanity
find my voice
make some noise
i can't believe
this is happening to me
manipulation
modification
mutation
manifestation
insanity
inseminate the
grandmother tree
with your technicolor wisdom
and plume of creation
so we can scribe to the children
and i can sleep in the soil
gracefully
with my lover wrapped around me
the seeds are growing
slowly, slowly
insanity's coming
enjoy the running
enjoy the return
to the river that flows
inside of me
insanity
take me home
Track Name: In & Out
i'll see what i need to be a dreamer
to be a worshiper
and to be free
i'll see what i need to be a mirror
for the deep blue...
it's going in and out of itself
and i'm just floating in and out of my shell
i'm singing about the small things
i can't help it's what attracts me
like a moth going to heaven
when he's stuck on it's possession of a flame
going up with the smoke stacks
filling up with the beer cans
we're all getting high off the smoke stacks
and filling up with the beer
going in and out of myself
and he's just floating in and out of his shell
i don't know where you go
but i know that one day i'm going i'm going to follow
you out into space
i don't know where you're going
but i know that one day
i'm going to follow you out
into the flame
let the dirt eat away your suffering
i'll see what i need to be a dreamer
to be a worshiper
and to be free
i'll see what i need to be a mirror
for the deep blue sea
Track Name: Gypsy Woman
i'm a gypsy woman by blood
i'm a gypsy woman by soul
give me rock and roll
and i'll dance
i'm a gypsy woman by heart
i'm a gypsy woman by soul
watch it roll from the tip of my tongue
and i'll dance
hey pretty boy you're good by nature
and i'd like to take a little taste now
you follow me to the stair case by the sea
where the sand sparks
we'll create a frequency by howling at the moonlight
bring your dream drum
and i'll stream strum
i'm a gypsy woman by blood
i'm a gypsy woman by soul
give me rock and roll
and i'll dance
Track Name: Hard Work
the sun dissolves the ocean blue
i'm singing to you from the bottom of this lullaby tune
blue suede shoes
made from animal meat
and hard work
i know it takes some hard work
to kill those damn shoes
the sooner that we get up
the sooner we'll all move
god speed
you know it's the ramblin' blues
just can't sit still
i'm a ramblin' man
start listening to your intuition brother
the wind will pick you up boy
the wind is going to pick you up boy
the wind is going to pick you up brother
the wind is going to pick you up father sky
the wind is going to pick you up child
the wind is going to pick you up boy
the wind is going to pick you up brother
the wind is going to pick you up father sky
the wind is going to pick you up mama's child
and we'll rise to realize that the changing moon tides are alive
they're speaking through me
whispering to my body
we'll rise to realize that the changing moon tides are alive
mother mary
she's speaking through me
i know it takes some hard work
but brother just hold me because
mother mary
she's speaking through me
i know it's so damn hard
but it takes some hard work
Track Name: Shipwreck
once upon a time
an old friend of mine
walked this same road
and so the story goes
that the lord and his love
they were the same low
and the ship sank
the ship sank
it sank to the bottom of the sea
the ship sank
it sank to me
whoa it's such a shame
when the only one who knows your pain
drowns in the storm that you've created
whoa it's such a shame
when the only one who knows your pain
drowns in the storm
Track Name: Spelling Games
you can't put no spell on me
i said you can't put no spell on me
you can't put no spell on me
because i am just so complete
you can't put no spell on me
because my home it's in the arch of my feet
my home it's in the arch of my feet
my home it's in the arch of my feet
whoa the lure
oh the color orange
can't put no spell on me no more
i said
you can't put no spell on me no more
i am just so complete
i said
you can't put no spell on me
because my home it's in the arch of my feet
my home it's in the arch of my feet
my home it's in my dancing feet
my home it's in my wandering feet
you can't put no spell on me
whoa the lord
all the symbols
can't put no spell on me no more
you can't put no spell on me
because i am just so complete
you can't put no spell on me
because my home it's in the arch of my feet
i said my home it's in the arch of my feet
i said my home it's in my dancing feet
i said my home it's in my wandering feet
i want to grow
i want to grow
i want to grow
you can't put no spell on me
my home it's in my dancing feet
you can't put no spell
you can't put no spell
my home it's in my dancing feet
they going to keep dancing for me
you can't put no spell
i'm so complete in my feet
Track Name: Soma Coyote
dig me a river with your bare hands
lead me to the ocean
and make it smile
get on your knees and feed me a rainbow
and brother i will be forever yours
my dreams lately have been about perspective
trying to see the world from side to side
it seems like a little bit of a dirty dirty job
so let the devil in
the whole world around the wolves travel
howlin' at your sacred insects
feed on it's own kind of innocents
your brilliance
shines like the rays of the sun
meteors shock my skin
begin again
i love you
staring at my children
what compares to you
and back yeah here i go
back to the place i'm sure i know
i'm invited this is exciting
picking up the sticks
from where i left them
oh hail grandmother moon
unwind to all of creation
give me a taste of
illumination
and thrive on
dig me a river with your bare hands
lead me to the ocean
and make it smile
get on your knees and feed me a rainbow
and brother i will be forever yours
like the sea and the stars
like the sky and the moon
like the sun and the fire
forever, forever yours
like the sea and the stars
like the sky and the moon
like the sun and the fire
forever, forever yours
forever, forever, forever, forever, yours
Track Name: Horns of Plenty
there is a wise man in this holy land
and you better not fight him
there is a wise man and it's his command
that we all stand up together
people get ready your horns of plenty
let's reach for the skies
people get ready your horns of plenty
shine sunshine
people get ready your horns of plenty
let's reach for the skies
put together your baskets of worth
and i'll trade you mine
traveling collecting pieces of the dirt
i'm traveling collecting pieces of mirth
i'm overseas on my knees
begging the lord to please
humble me
humility
people get ready your horns of plenty
let's reach for the skies
people get ready your horns of plenty
shine sunshine
people get ready your horns of plenty
let's reach for the skies
put together your baskets of worth
and i'll trade you mine
Track Name: Jerusalem
the violet flame
it manifests
as an airplane
across the ibex sands
oh the holy land
crash
makes my heart confess
and my eyes undress
into that winding winey mess
of my mind
ancient miracle
keep me alive
anything goes
everything goes away
i'll sleep when i'm dead
and dream while i'm awake
jerusalem!
