Embrace we still do for now

One day see through it we will

Track Name: By Design
Verse 1
I just can't conceive
Anyone would choose
To accept abuse
So I always need
Somebody to blame
Victim to explain, but

Chorus
If we're divine
Against our will
Surely can't be real
Unless it's by design

Verse 2
Time and time again
Find my self confused
How can this be true?
Trials that comes my way
I desire them all
Inconceivable, but

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
Always I return
Every living entity
Manifest divinity
Though I doubt myself
Sometimes clear it seems to me
Here is nearer to a dream, for

Repeat Chorus

Outro
Even if it's all a dream
Maybe we can make it real
Maybe we can make believe
Power of divinity
Even if it's all a dream
Maybe we can make it real
Every living entity
Manifest divinity
Even if it's all a dream
Track Name: Daydreams Only
Verse 1
If I forget who I am that's okay
For you should know there's a plan in action
So no regrets
And don't you fret
Unless you need to believe it's all real

Verse 2
If I deny I exist I pretend
If in my mind I insist when I die
My life will end
There is no more
Then you should know irony is in me

Chorus
I remember once you told me
Our adventures - daydreams only
We can wake up anytime

Verse 3
So when I go don't be sad - I'm watching
We have so much to be glad - believe me
The life is lived
The loving gived :)
But time has come to move on - say goodbye

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Drums In The Morning

I hear the sound of drums in the morning
Bare feet the shadows long
Hand sweep a sooted flame from an offering
Vibrate primeval om

So I can face each new day
All obstacles come my way
I won't forget to believe
That I might be the best me

That I may walk all my talk
And keep in mind all my thought
Perceive divine in all beings
Respect the choice that they choose

Repeat Chorus

That I maintain freedom from
My judgment of right and wrong
Conceptions of us and them
Presciptions of goal of life

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Gonna Be My Day
Verse 1
Sitting in the morning rain
Waiting for the sun to come
Tryin' to make my mind up - is this gonna be my day?

verse 2
Will or won't - I can't decide
Ponder but I just don't know
Maybe it's the question rather than an answer lost?

Bridge
I don't know but I've been told
Some things one senses in their soul
Within - this is up to us

Verse 3
Standing in my field of dreams
Tryin' to figure what they mean
Maybe I should wake up - get on with my make up life?

This life - choices mine to choose
Tune in to my inner voice
Have faith things will fall in place
Today's gonna be my day

Walking on this planet Earth
Ev'ryone has taken birth
Come here for a reason - something we believe inside

Sitting in the morning rain
Waiting for the sun to come
Tryin' to make my mind up this is gonna be my day!

Verse 1
Admit if you can
On reflection
Too much them and us
Too much cheating
Exploitation

Verse 2
We could try to see
One family
Brothers and sisters
Two and four legged

Everybody
Join together now
No more pretend no one stranger

Species of life
All the same inside
I believe this
Might it be true?

We can make this work
Come on people
Join together hands

Track Name: Nobody Fooling Me
Chorus
Nobody I know
Really has a clue
Some pretend they do
They ain't fooling me
Nobody
Not no more

Verse
But if I were up for it
Maybe I would listen
I'd cave to belong again
To something I'm missing

Repeat Chorus

Verse
But if I were up for it
Maybe I would believe
I'd sell for a smug on face
Embroider hearts on sleeve, but

Repeat Chorus

Verse
But if I were up for it
Would I'd be more open
To buy me a peace of mind
No harm in the hoping

Instrumental to fade
Track Name: Only Role Play Games
Verse 1
Ev'ryone I know
Thinks I'm out to lunch
For me, just a coffee break
To breath

They don't understand
See with in my mind
I am sitting in my heart
Divine

Chorus
All the things they say - no one knows
Only role play games for the soul

Verse 3
Each and ev'ryone
Beyond species birth
We're all way down deep inside
Equal

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4
Like the clothes we wear
Naked skin we hide
So we, whom reside within
Disguise

Repeat Chorus

Only role play games
All the hats we wear
All the parts we play
Only role play games
All the lives we live
All the lies believe
Only role play games
Track Name: Searching For Light
Verse 1
Down in the morning after
Regret the night before
You don't recall her name
What were you looking for?
Following faded footsteps
Roll in the waves of time
I'm standing on the shore
What am I looking for?

Chorus
Searching for light
Try as I might
I never find

Verse 2
Only the lonely people
Find time to stand apart
They understand my mind
Know what is in my heart
All in the way we see it
Some say it all makes sense
I'm sitting on the fence
What am I looking for?

Repeat Chorus

Breakdown

Verse 3
Driving a road to Gravesend
Queues on M25
Back to where I am from
But does this feel like home?
Looking to find an answer
Forget the question asked
So long I don't know what -
What was I looking for

Repeat Chorus

Always you are whole
Sometimes one is one
Sometimes one is two
One and one is one
Track Name: Special Gift
Verse 1
Down in the gutter
Running like rats
Fight for survival
Vie for the scraps
Nobody is sure
Which way to turn
Nobody understands
Yet to be learned

Verse 2
Up on the sidewalk
Shopping for thrills
Spending money
Oiling the wheels
Nobody is sure
What satisfies
Nobody understands
Truth from the lies

Chorus
Makes me start to think
All this not knowing
Maybe meant to be
Like a special gift
Like a U.S.P

Verse 3
Out on the highway
All are confused
Ask a direction
Too many views
Nobody is sure
Which way to go
Nobody understands
Nobody knows

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental

All this not knowing
Maybe meant to be
Track Name: Which Direction?
Chorus
Always wandering
Always wondering
Which direction

Verse 1
Preachers camp at life's crossroads
Pointing only way to go
They believe there's just one path
Things they say - they make me laugh

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
Search for clues at life's crossroads
Try to choose the flight of crows
Doubting there is one right choice
Feeling life is up to us

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
Silence waits at life's crossroads
Watching you decide your goals
Helping hand if you require
Sharing only where desired

Instrumental

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Selling Our Self Short
Verse 1
And if I tell a lie
And no one finds me out
How much do I get away with
If I've become a liar?

Verse 2
And if I use some one
And no one pulls me up
How much do I get away with
If I've become a player?

Chorus
Sometimes I think what a shadow of what we could be we've become. What a ghost of who I am I settle for. And we'd all manifest so much more if we stop selling our self short

Verse 3
And if I step on toes
But no one sees through me
How much do I get away with
If I've become a user?

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4
And if I blame some one
Proclaim my innocence
How much do I get away with
If give up my power?
