Track Name: When Truths Collide
Chorus
When truths collide decide
When truths collide reason why

Verse 1
I right you wrong
Simple I right you wrong
You might disagree
But obvious to me you wrong

Verse 2
I wrong you right
Simple I wrong you right
I may not see the light
But ev'ryone know my eye's blind

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
You wrong I wrong
Neither I or you can see
Nobody know true truth
But everybody know both wrong

Repeat Chorus

Breakdown/Instrumental

Verse 4
You right I right
Complex truth may contradict
Appreciate us both some small thing
But neither see picture complete

Repeat Chorus to fade
Track Name: All Wrapped Up
[Chorus]
Do you believe truth is owned - is all wrapped up?
No question ask, for answer known - is carved in stone?
Can you conceive there maybe more, I wonder?

[Verse 1]
I wonder how so sure
Mind free from doubt conviction
Is it by hand divine
Some see God implausible?

[Verse 2]
I wonder how so sure
Mind free from doubt perception
Is it by hand divine
Some see God impersonal?

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 3]
I wonder how so sure
Mind free from doubt believing
Is it by hand divine
Some see God reality?

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental + spoken word]
It's almost as if a wand is waved to create a magical spell by which the object finds their reality entirely believable ... regardless of how fetched it might seem to others :)

[Verse 4]
I wonder how so sure
Mind free from doubt confidence
Is it by hand divine
Some see one and difference?

[Chorus to Fade]
Track Name: Chicken Or Egg
Chorus v1
Believable truth / objective desirable
Chicken or egg choose
Is cause or effect
Believe what you want to

Lover or enemy
Comply or crazy
For or against me

Verse 2
Goal of life black and white
How must proceed prescribed
Who am I all wrapped up
Ask no question

Chorus v2
Believable truth / objective desirable
Chicken or egg choose
Is cause or effect
Believe what you need to
Disregard rest

Verse 3
Eyeball head to head
Line in sand us and them
Brother or other
Mother head in hand

Instrumental

Chorus v3
Believable truth / objective desirable
Chicken or egg choose
Is cause or effect
Believe predisposed to
Disregard rest

Time reevaluate
Cherished truth reassess
Take with pinch of salt
Yet somehow faith hold
Track Name: Choose To Understand
Chorus
You choose to understand
Hand of God
In ev'ry circumstance
In ev'ry life and situation

Verse 1
Desire to know, comprehend, disposition, attitude
How much aloof or hands on
As she / he responds to soul aspiration?

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
Desire to know, know for sure, how designates wrong or right
Know how much prefers, sees in terms
Worthy unworthy, how much really carved in stone?

Instrumental

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
Desire to know, real-time see, be positive,
Respect soul divinity expression
For if approved by God is good enough for me
Track Name: Connected
Verse 1
Feel a wind arising
See the clouds arriving
Sense a storm a brewing
Clock the thunder rumble
Hear the pitter-patter
Jump the sky igniting
Joke a god a smiting
Count the thunder clapping

Verse 2
Crack the heavens open
Tarmac a river flowing
Step in shoes a sodden
Climb the graveyard path home
Fear a roof a leaking
Check the paper streaking
All the while awareness
Souls unfinished business

Chorus
I want to thank you/express
Feel all this time together blessed
For every moment connected

Verse 3
Clouds a dissipating
Sun creating rainbow
Earth aroma carry
Breeze a softly blowing
Sky a blue returning
Hear The Beatles playing
All the while awareness
Souls unfinished business

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental

Repeat Verse 1 (first half)

Outro
Connected ...
Track Name: Conviction Deep
Chorus
Conviction deep
Firm faith belief
Create impossibility
To countrary point of view accept / respect

Verse 1
Wishfull thinking embrace
Forget a choice is made
Decide theory is known fact
Is fact chiselled in stone, is it?

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
Perceive insight as truth
Promote as absolute
Oblige others accept it
Dismiss all those who reject it

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental

Verse 3
You read in black and white
Simple - is wrong or right
For you there is no greyscale
Reminds me of someone once knew
Track Name: Dare You Trust In Your Facts?
Chorus
Dare you trust in your facts
Believe in your truth
Just because resonates in mind?
For you've traversed that path before
Known certainty sure
To only later rethink / move on in time

Verse 1
Is as if is hypnotised
Somehow held under spell bound
As if powerless to step outside
As if it some how serves
Restrict blinkered point of view
As if some magical wand was waved

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
Is as if your hands are tied
Karma previous obliged
As if by nature action dictates
Yet some how you remain
Aware nothing as it seems
As if you dreaming some lucid dream

Instrumental

Verse 3
Whether role-play play embrace
Or with pinch of salt partake
Or see beyond the veil? - In your face dare you ...

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Everything A Business
Verse 1
Ev'rything a business
Why does nobody protest?
Motivate by greed for profit
Close those cases - tick those boxes
And you wonder why society is losing all humanity

Verse 2
Ev'rything a business
How come nobody complain?
Motivate by dangled carrot
Grab that bonus - focus maintain
And you wonder why humanity is losing all community

Chorus
Ev'rything a business - am I a business?
Ev'rything a business - are you a business?

Verse 3
Ev'rything a business
Secure payment by result
Serve performance indicator
Penalise all those who default
And you wonder why human being is losing ingenuity

Middle 8
Ev'rything a business
Ev'rything a business
Ev'rything a business
Ev'rything a business

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4
Ev'rything a business
How come nobody resist?
People not some corporation
With politician in their pocket
And you wonder why society is losing all humanity
Track Name: Fallen Soul Bootcamp
Verse 1
See you stand alone
Waiting at the station
You leap of faith
Into unknown
Watch your ride arrive
Recognise by haircut and starry eye'd
We're expecting you
Welcome to Croome

Chorus
Fallen soul bootcamp
Detox brain wash programme
Purify existence
Break old habit cold
Liberate your soul
And who knows one day possible you may graduate

Verse 2
Spy you driving solo
Armed with honky roll
Careful park that Volvo
Transcendent Iskcon man (we're from an artist co-operative)
And where your incense factory
World of Hare Krishna (the video)
Now play cat and mouse
Collect for under privileged (it's not a survey --- hey! hey!)

Repeat Chorus

Spoken word
Since the Master's departure the bootcamp has been increasingly managed by bootcampees ... some of whom have no vision of anything beyond bootcamp ...they believe bootcamp is journey's end rather than just a beginning ... for them graduate and 'bloop' are one and the same. Oh well, maybe next lifetime, 'tis Kaliyuga after all

Repeat Chorus

Spoken word
So tell me, how does one graduate from bootcamp?
Well, in my opinion, you just have realise you're not really fallen soul ;)

Might you arrange
Unite again
With all life's loved and lost

Verse 2
If you divine

Something out of reach
Desire value increase

Might you forget
Self awareness
So you may learn a-fresh

Get yourself lost
So you may find your way

If you we God
Might you victim play
Just to set the stage
For forgiveness later

He knows who we are: we are him.
And even though we're also not him, this second fact doesn't cancel the first.

And we'll find peace the more we realise this.

Stronger together

See faith embrace as known

Always chiseled in stone

You sense there something wrong
You never quite belong
As if this not your home
