Track Name: All is Illusion
All is illusion

I'd like to sing to the souls that surround me
in hopes to find my note in this symphony of lives
But I, often find myself seeking solitude
Singing my songs to no one
But the nothingness.... the nothingness

Yes I would like to find the time to define my divine but
I waste my time, why do we waste our time
trying to define

Because all is illusion
This crazy world breads confusion
All is illusion
But who are we to tell what is truthful to what is full of lies
who are we to tell the black from the white... from the white

I search for meaning in the ways of the water
In the force of the fire in the wisps of the wind and
I found myself face to face with the fragmenting walls
of evolutionary waste
Through trial and error we have tried ourselves to the bone
our systems our classes, our lives and all we own, and all we own

All is illusion, and this crazy world breeds confusion
All is illusion

But the dreams only last so long, You know they fade with dawn
with dawn.

So there is no more eating these sugared up lies
the box has been opened and the words have been spoken
We are to wise to close our eyes on our evolution and the
many solutions
If we build on the lessons learned then we bring in the light
and we heal the hurt
Though we may many things behind,
there will be greater treasures for us to find, in future times.

All is illusion
This crazy world breeds confusion
All is illusion
This crazy world breeds confusion

But the dreams only last so long, X3
You know they fade with dawn
Track Name: Here
Here

Can you here me now
Though you are not here
I can see you now
Though you've disappeared
Though you've disappeared

I will sing this song
Loud and strong and clear
I know I must stay strong
Till I sing it to your ear
Till I sing it to your ear
Till I sing it to your ear

ouuuhhh.....

Can you hear me now
Thought you are not here
I can see you now
Though you've disappeared
Though you've disappeared
Though you've disappeared
Track Name: Takhini River Road
Takhini River Road

Life is easy with the TRC cuz we spend our days in a haze
Away, away from society’s craze
Lying beneath the trees staring at the bees
No need for modern technologies

Cuz life is worth living for what your giving away
I say life is worth living for what your giving away

What your giving away to stay sane and face the day’s when life
Rolls you up and spit’s you out
To face today’s rat race

So I'll chill in the river hills, signing rhymes and wasting time
Yes I'll chill in the river hills signing rhymes and wasting time

And when the cold chills will kill the summer thrills
I’ll hit the road and carry my load of memories untold
Of memories untold

Knowing that I left half my soul on the Takhini river road
Knowing that I left half my soul on the Takhini river road
Track Name: The Path
The Path we walk

The Path we walk is covered in snow
Frozen beauties lie deep in winters folds
Below this blanket of ice lies the true path to follow
The path we walk is covered in snow

ouuu ouuu ouuuu

The lives we live are flames of a fire
Some burn bright and quick consumed by passion and desire
Others steady and slow fade as embers
Never knowing their swan song
The lives we live are flames of a fire

ouuu ouuu ouuu

Will I choose the path that will light or that will smother me
Will I untangle myself from what is asked of me
Will I choose my heart, the ego or the money
My heart, the ego or the money
Will it be the path that will choose me

ouuuu ouuuu
Track Name: Palm of my Hand
Palm of my Hand

I left my lover for another man
I left him there I can’t understand
You know I had his heart in the palm of my hand
I left my lover for another man

As the trees are burning and the fire grows
You know I'll burn my feet walking right back home
But when I get there it will start to snow
And you know my man had left long ago

So I ll walk through the valley’s and Ill walk through the town’s
But Ill find no peace until my man is found
Until my man is found

Leaves we cast in the water tend to sway away
You know I cast my heart out on the third of May
Now I drift at see waiting to find land
I had his heart in the palm of my hand
Track Name: Brick Wall
Brick wall

Baby your so cold are you made of ice and snow
Did somebody tear your heart appart and throw it out the door
If you feel what I have to give to you is true
Take down your brick wall and let me love you
Yes take down your brick wall and let me love you

I know you got hurt yes these are fragile things but even thought
our hearts skip a beat well they keep on ticking
So just let yourself go along with the ride and
even thought it gets bumpy, in the end it's just fine
even thought it gets bumpy in the end it's just fine

Honey oh honey you know you're messing with my love
Be true to you and if you don't want don't do
Cuz you're costing me a lot of time and pain
For a love that might just trickle down the drain
For a love that might just trickle down the drain
Track Name: Souls for Gold
Souls for gold

Ain’t no mystery in the misery
Cuz cash ain’t got no history
This heartless entity don’t got an inch of empathy
So we sell our souls for gold cuz the money is gone

There’s loser and winners and so many people done wrong
But there is no solution
To addictions so strong
So they sell their souls for gold cuz the money is gone

Well burn down the mountain till we find the coals
Hell well burn down the village till we find its soul
And well sell it to the first one’s that come and go
Leaving the mess to these poor folks
Till they sell their souls for gold cuz the money is gone

How come all this money is causing so much harm
Can we speculate on the wars and the bombs
And when we will see it all trickling down
All that will be left to do is
All that will be left to do is
Sell our souls for gold cuz the money is gone

I say sell our souls, sell our souls,
sell our souls for gold cuz the money is gone
Track Name: I loved you so
I loved you so

When the birds will fall from the sky
When the children will only cry
When the ocean’s will be mad
Only then i'll know, I loved you so

When the sky, on our heads will fall
When the oceans will open up and swallow us all
When the strong winds will blow me away
Only then i'll know, I loved you so

When the vibrant Sun will fade to grey
When there will be no god left to prey
When all that will be left to do is wander astray
Only then ill know I loved you so

So baby baby I wont wait till the end is near
To show my love to you my dear
And when the earth will tremble beneath our feet
Only then Ill know, I loved you so
Track Name: Where do we go from here
Where do we go from here

Tell me why has it come to this
Hurting each other, killing sister’s and brother’s
Tell me what can we do
To undo the pain that’s been done

Tell where do we go from here

And tell me, what is the use of these machines,
If we use them against each other
Tell me is enough love
For us to live together

Tell me where do we go from here

Tell me something true
In this world filled with lies
And tell me, can we find the courage
Yes the courage, to speak to each other

Tell me where do we go from here
