Beyond guna colour, beyond the dark and light

Bird on a tree is watching me
What I believe is destinied
Is by design, facilitates
My state of mind fits my desires

Chorus v1
I take this birth under direction
No matter whom I choose to be, you stay with me

Verse 2
No stone unturned no bridges burned
Pleasure and pain perceive the same
And all the while a witness smiles
Swallow the lie, or question why ... either way

Chorus v2
I take this birth - my contribution
No matter how I choose to play, always with me

Bird on a tree still watching me
Reminding heart of things desired
To taste the fruit, or remain aloof

No matter where I choose to roam, you come with me

Verse 1
You believe, but this isn't faith
You believe you really realise
Absolute truth carved in stone
Science of the soul you follow

Never doubt - this is no dogma
Look about you - convinced you see clearly
Try to please - or co depend
At one who's feet you sit devotee'd

I believe in you
Thank you for coming

All around tinted glasses see
Imperfection is ev'rywhere you believe
Set the stage - mercy bestow
Save the fallen souls adventure

Where you coming from I can't say
Tell to me how it feels to you

Wanna know how you making sense
Understand what appeals to you
Wanna hear it, what you think
Express your self with confidence

Point of view - entitled to

Always one sees from point of view

Open eyes desire to see
Change your mind any time you want

Feeling is language of my soul
What I am after here
Tasting emotion everywhere
Almost as if we were gods

Verse 1
Whenever I'm down I try to see
I'm never a victim bound, however seems
All situations setting the scene for me
To later experience something I choose and want

Verse 2
Take, for example, 'being apart'
From separation pains grow fonder heart
And ev'ryone knows it after the fact - later
Though when it is going on, nobody sees beyond

Repeat Chorus

Take, for example, 'losing someone'
I'm facing a life ahead and no way back
Where is my power - my divinity?
But what if against all odds, how sweet embrace would be?

Repeat Chorus x 2

Repeat Verse 1 (first half)
Whenever I'm down I try to see
I'm never a victim bound, however seems

And so it begins / another birth
But don't be sad, it's not a curse
Just body mind interface for life on Earth
Designed for purpose / driven by dream

Verse 2
Side-quest / diversion along the way
Texture and colour deliver today
Reverses / adversities conspire and inform
Establish the stage where now we perform

Verse 3
Divine expression is everything
Just your desire to table bring
Unique perception, contribution
Nothing outside emotional spectrum

Verse 4
No wrong or right, no should or must
No black and white, no truth trust
Just what mind finds believable
Even for others inconceivable

Chorus
See beauty everywhere
Leave no stone left unturned

Verse 5
Sometimes aspire to making sense
Some fine sitting on the fence
While others choose never question why
Simply serves believe the lie

Verse 6
Sometimes follow another's path
Stumble blindly in the Dark
Distrust in own ability
Deny one's self divinity

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental

Verse 7
And all the while the witness smiles
Facilitates, is on our side
Out of site, behind the scenes
But always watching, never leaves

How can it be that I experience something you cannot know?
How could it be? To me that makes no sense
What sort of god would you be if I own something you do not?

Verse 2
How can it be that I enjoy/suffer feelings you cannot taste?
How could it be? To me true doesn't ring
What sort of god would you be if some thing for you out of reach?

Chorus v1
Makes me wonder who I am
Ask the question 'who am I to you?'

Verse 3
How can it be by my conditioning point of view unique gain
So only I can see from where I stand?
What sort of god would you be if I see in ways you can't see?

Verse 4
And by my perception context create - facilitate adventure
That I alone can truly enter in
What sort of god would you be if you're bound by reality?

Makes me wonder who I am
Ask the question 'who am I to you?'
