Track Name: Bearly Isaac
The wind will bend this bow ‘til it breaks, and when the cradle falls she'll be wide awake.
And with a clean slate she'll begin to fill her head with all of the world she's in.
She'll see people smiling and living free, she'll feel love for all that she knows.
She'll be charismatic, a benign fanatic for the growth of good from within.
When she walks outside she'll smell clean air and see herself with the trees,
And feel as one with the earth and sun, selflessly living in peace.
The wind will bend this bow ‘til it breaks, and when the cradle falls he'll be wide awake.
And like a starving sponge he'll begin to soak up all the ways of the world he's in.
He'll see people crying and living in chains, he’ll feel hate and all that it breeds.
He’ll be pessimistic and feel the misfit; he’ll seek profit driven by greed.
He’ll define himself through material wealth, detached from all that is real,
And use the earth-but for all it's worth-and what can't be bought he will steal.
Too much of a good thing and I've seen I lose appreciation for simpler things.
Too much of a bad thing it's the same, I look to everywhere but myself to blame.
See when I read between lines of these media giants I see money flying the plane
Fueled by special interests and crooked business en route to profit and gain.
It's like I try to live with my head held high but can't see over the pain
As it's being endorsed and then reinforced ‘til the knife is fully ingrained.
Read what they write, hear what they say, watch what they give me to see.
How do I recognize evil from good? What am I supposed to believe?
I'd rather hear from those who were born to give, born to love and to feel,
Lose the knife and the wound will heal.
Track Name: Breakthrough
Breakthrough. What’ll it take to breakthrough? I can’t move.
It feels like I’m tied at the feet and I can’t prove
Homer did walk or that man ever touched moon, nor do I have the desire to.
Stand tall; that’s how I’d stand if I could stand it at all.
On Day 83 I emerged from a free-fall,
strike from a low-ball, to sprint from a slow-crawl; this is my day to live.
Unwind. This is the last and the first of my free time.
The best and the worst of my one-line answers to life and opinions unrefined; still of the simplest kind.
Fake-through,and one day awake to the memory of old you, and those who inspired you.
Who knew a Cloud on a String could be a thing to aspire to? That was the way I lived.
Breakthrough. What’ll it take to Breakthrough? Breakthrough?
Fake through life until you find your way. Fake through, in time you’ll have your day.
Track Name: Something For You
You say you’ve got something-something for me. You say you’ve got something that I need.
You hear I’ve got something-something for you? And if you don’t like it at least it’s something to do.
I’ve had something to give you for quite some time, just something to give you to pass the time.
It’s something you’ve needed for quite some time. Something you’ve needed for quite some--
You say you’ve got places you need to be, appointments make and people to see.
Well I’ve got a life too, with business to tend but I’d rather make love than make money to spend.
I want you to join me-I want you to see I’ve got a priceless offer I’m giving for free.
It’s something you’ve wanted, it’s something you need, it’s something for you that satisfies…
I see you this evening and can’t help but say “You’re getting more beautiful every day”
And before you leave here I’d like you to come and tend to some business that needs to be done.
Been waiting to see you for quite some time, so why don’t you help me to ease my mind?
Been dying to see you for quite some time, so let’s get together and pass the time.
It’s something for you that satisfies me. It’s something you’ve wanted-something I need.
It’s something for you that satisfies me.
Track Name: Chupacabra
Beyond the strands of barbed wire, amongst the woodland oak,
lay bucks and doe and kids of hair and horn; a healthy trip of goats.
So unaware that danger lurks nearby; so tragic and so close.
Beware elusive legends who choose to stay unknown.
Who live to eat the flesh and drink the blood of unsuspecting goats.
And by the time the moon traversed the sky the woodland floor was soaked.
Track Name: Red Carpet Smile
Nobody finds you as attractive as I do, so quit playing so hard to get and things will be fine.
It’s not like I’m that bad-I’m a 6 maybe half that, and you probably peak at a 5 but still I don’t mind.
Because I don’t care how you look to the world. I don’t care how you look to the world
It’d be nice once in a while if you’d crack but a small smile,
if people don’t like what they see they’ll turn away.
I know how you must feel, and I’m sorry but girl, still,
You’ve gotta quit polluting your mind with the sins of your smile,
Because I don’t care how you look to the world. No, I don’t care how you look to the world.
So go out and get what you want and don’t let the world bring you down,
We’ll make it through life with below-average faces, you’ll see.
And I’ll never turn you away; 40 more years and we’ll both look the same.
Your lack of a Red Carpet Smile means nothing to me.
Because I don’t care how you look to the world. Because I don’t care how you look to the world.
Track Name: It's Not for You
Once in time the earth was flat and central to this all, til the changing tides of knowledge ushered in
ways of understanding who we are and where we’re from, letting go the notion all was made for man.
Armed with new-found knowledge and a way to test its truths,
ancient myths were soon dispelled for what they were;
giving rise to humbled men who relish in the fact that we lack divine entitlement to earth.
You can’t have it all it’s not for you. You can’t have it all it’s not for you.
Think of progress, forward gain, advancement of a kind, and the hidden costs that progress often packs,
when gain for one relies upon destruction of the next, making one step forward truly two steps back.
You can’t have it all it’s not for you. You can’t have it all it’s not for you.
Track Name: Last Passenger
The last has died, she’s gone away. The last to fly, the last in grave.
A hundred years is only time; a billion birds - that’s not just life
Once her flock had blackened the sky. Once upon this nation they thrived.
Ask her why they didn’t survive. Martha, tell them why did you die?
Her story’s one of several told. Of those who thrived til forced to fold
A mounted corpse - a single bird, a souvenir of those who were
A hundred years is only time; a billion birds – that’s not just life
Once her flock had blackened the sky. Once upon this nation they thrived.
Ask her why they didn’t survive. Martha, tell them why did you die?
Track Name: War and Peace
Called to the front-lines, burn down the old - build anew.
What good are words when fictions speak louder than truth?
Power by warfare, heroes are born as they fall.
But bullets don't change minds-they blow minds and nothing is solved.
Freedom and peace must be earned these aren't things to be won.
Who here deserves life? I look to the sky. Why don't we all stay?
Differences astray. Each to his own fate. Tomorrow's too late.
You don't belong here, you don't belong there. We don't belong here, they don't belong there.
What if we did share? What if we all cared? We all belong here, they all belong there!
Open a closed mind, see colors hate never knew.
Un-draw the hard-lines, one at a time we'll Breakthrough.
