Track Name: Decide
Verse 1
Tell me who-ooh-ooh you aspire to be
Tell me why-I-I, but you make no sense to me
What you say-aye-aye changing day to day-aye
Don't you know-oh-oh you already are someone?

Verse 2
Tell me-ee-ee-ee what you want to see
Don't you understand ev'rything is made believe?
Label true-ooh-ooh, but it's fantasy
Look for wrong or right, but there is no prescribed

Chorus
You procrastinate, but it's just a game
Only you decide how you want to play-hay-yay

Verse 3
See you-ooh-ooh-ooh, but you don't see me
Witness ev'rything that you contemplate within
Seated in your heart - I facilitate
If you change your mind - universe is realigned

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4
Never laugh at you when you boo-hoo-hoo
Never judgement pass, cos I always luv you
When I see you smile - when I see you cry
Either way, remain ever well wisher always

Track Name: Expression Always Divine
Verse 1
See him in his car
Bimma jumping queues again
Wonder who you think you are
Too important to wait in line

Verse 2
Hear him beep his horn
Ev'ryone move out the way
See in terms of you and they
He acts like believe road is owned

Chorus
But let me judge him not
Condemn no more in my mind
Desire see the soul within
Expression always divine

Verse 3
Watch her at the till
Conversate mobile absorbed
Disrespect to one who serves
Though that she does never occurs

Chorus
But let me judge her not
Condemn no more in my mind
Desire see the soul within
Expression always divine

Verse 4
There I go again
Losing sight of light that shines
Seeing only filter glass
I wonder who I think they are

Instrumental

Repeat Chorus to Fade
Track Name: Facets Of You
Chorus
Facets of you see ev'rywhere
Facets of you in ev'rything
Facets of you no matter what we do we are

Verse 1
Of water - taste; purifier - wind;
Of seasons - spring; in the sun and moon light
Like spark of fire, drop of reservoir
All part of you, fragment of your splendour

Of fishes - shark; in the sands of time
In quest for truth, in mystery hidden
In roll of dice, in ability of man
In seed of life, beginning middle and end

He's my right hand man of god

He's a lot like you,
Do you understand me -
He's a man of god?

Track Name: Is This For You?
Chorus
Is this for you?
Does this make sense?
Does it seem true?
Resonate within your heart,
Spin in your mind,
Around and round in your head?

The how and why
The where and whom
The reason readily embrace illusion
The objective
The subjective
Our seeming inability to say which

The long and short
Reality
Some sort of collaboration of dreamers
Though now feels real
Believable
I wonder will I change my view come morning?

Does no-one out there think like me?
Relate to the way I see?
Resonate with how I feel

Verse 2
Does no-one out there feel the same?
Share this point of view with me?
Believe life only a game
One plays to gain emotional experience

Chorus
So wonder what I want / why take this birth?
- High time I remembered
Too long I've wandered blind on planet Earth
Must keep faith may yet recall

Verse 3
Sometimes I feel my heart despair
Did I make one big mistake
Coming here cannot fit in
To normal life, to me it makes no sense at all

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental

Outro
Does anybody think like me?
Does anybody think like me out there?
Does anybody feel like me?
Does anybody feel like me out there ... out there?

All makes sense, yet I'm on my fence, I wonder why

You remember or forget, is all the same in my mind
