Long I've been gone and much confess done wrong
I've denied you, my mind could not accept

Always searching for real reality

Times wonder why take birth?
Is there no other way to arrive?
Times wonder why grow old?

Times wonder must we die?
Is there no better way say goodbye?

Times wonder must we doubt?
Is there no surer way to progress?

Track Name: She Say
[Chorus v1]
Breathe out, she said, if you wanna take breath
Exhale, she said, first
Focus mind, if you wanna clear head
Relax unwind
Give out, she said, if desire receive love
Step up, she said
My counter intuition girl
Got my world in a whirl
She fly pretty high
She say

[Verse 1]
Gotta question preconception
Life direction who has chosen
Who's idea regurgitating
Who's objective blind embracing

[Chorus v2]
Breathe out, she said, if you wanna take breath
Exhale, she said, first
Focus mind, if you wanna clear head
Relax unwind
Give out, she said, if desire receive love
Step up, she said
My counter intuition girl
Got my world in a whirl
She dive pretty deep
She say

[Verse 2]
Gotta question social normal
Temporary given rule book
Politician propaganda
Who you trust one gotta wonder

[Chorus v3]
Breathe out, she said, if you wanna take breath
Exhale, she said, first
Focus mind, if you wanna clear head
Relax unwind
Give out, she said, if desire receive love
Step up, she said
My counter intuition girl
Got my world in a whirl
She talk pretty fast
She say

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
Gotta question why one take birth
Conditional life existence
Material world adventure
Why we come here - what you after?

[Chorus v4]
Breathe out, she said, if you wanna take breath
Exhale, she said, first

Relax unwind
Give out, she said, if desire receive love
Step up, she said
My counter intuition girl
Got my world in a whirl
She nobody's fool
She say
Track Name: How Will Ever I?
[Chorus]
Geographical
Socio-political
Cultural localised - see through blinkered eyes
Layer 'pon layer
Confess this true, yet believe what you need somehow I know better than you - ooh
(How presumptuous is that?)

[Verse 1]
Ways accustomed to, ruse oblivious
In my social norms childhood sponge absorbed
With my classroom facts - teachers filled my head with
How will ever I know your point of view?

[Repeat Chorus]
(How ridiculous is that?)

[Verse 2]
Through my prejudice - dumb self-righteousness
By my predisposed cherished absolutes
So called progressive, seen from where I stand
How will ever I foot step in your shoes?

[Chorus]
(How embarrassing is that?)

[Instrumental + spoken word]
Given my background, conditioning and aspirations, probably it would be difficult for me to feel positive in your shoes. At least that's they way it looks from where I stand. But why should that lead me to assume that's how you feel? Where's the logic in my measuring YOUR life success in terms of MY objectives. Maybe by divine arrangement we're after something completely different?

[Verse 3]
In my arrogance, by my narrow mind
Altruism play in my cosy lies
With my self-deceive via certainty
Can I celebrate you your point of view?
Track Name: Yet Still Recall
[Chorus]
Yet still recall
Feeling of your presence
Sweetness in your smile
Soul behind your eyes
I still recall
Immediate connection
's' as if some flame rekindled
Relationship of old

[Verse 1]
I fell asleep - lost my way
My memory blank spaces
Journey back could not proceed
My footsteps retrace them

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Every road I explore
Arrive at places unknown
But in spite all failed endeavours
Like Sisyphus will give up never

[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
Sometimes question my sanity
Could it be was just dream?
My memory no substance?
Reality is unreal?

[Repeat Chorus]
Track Name: As Truth
[Chorus]
I wonder why so readily embrace as truth
Idea evolution theory explains how you are here
As if modern motor cars better understood
Ignoring market research targetted design / driver desire

[Verse 1]
Face you in my classroom - fill my head with lies
Cherry-pick your evidence for givens
No consideration possibility
More to life than bodily existence

[Verse 2]
Hear you on my radio - do my head in
Preacher-like of atheist religion
Faith maintain no matter how ridiculous
Seems to me already made your mind up

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 3]
See you on my TV press my button red
Why you speak as if was more than theory
Incomplete and always in a state of flux?
Why forget remind us speculative?

[Instrumental & spoken word]
How I wish I could reach those tasty looking leaves on the higher branches. I think about them all the time. If only my neck was just that little bit longer. What's that you say? Maybe in my next life ... if I desire it enough? That's ridiculous ... or is it?

[Verse 4]
Read you in origin of species scripture
Failed consider what if soul transmigrates?
Body worn like human clothes - external dress
Represents divinity expression
Track Name: Reduce To 2D Blues
[Verse 1]
If I were searching for ways to squander my hard earned pay
On things that serve me not, need or want in my life today
Yes, maybe I'd thank you for track and profiling me with ads
Say please continue, feel free persuade me dispose my cash

[Chorus v1]
My miraculous unbelievable multi-dimensional existence life
Reduce to 2D consumer slave to unnecessary necessities

[Verse 2]
If I were impressed by artificial intelligence
By technological imitation being-human
Then maybe I'd also confuse with progress driverless cars
Replace education with applications to think for me

[Chorus v2]
My miraculous unbelievable multi-dimensional existence life
Reduce to 2D infatuation with smarter-than-me-I-telephone

[Instrumental]

[Spoken Word]
I could be so much more. Why do I settle for this dumbed down version of my self? I'm no addicted consumer of products that fail to satisfy my soul, I don't believe technology will automatically enrich my life, and I am not the body I possess. It's an expression of me, a little bit like this song is, but it is not me.

[Verse 3]
If I were inclined to waste my human born form of life
Measure success by accumulation material
Of objects possess, but when I die leave them all behind
Identify 'I' - my body with me - my outer dress

[Chorus v3]
My miraculous unbelievable multi-dimensional existence life
Reduce to 2D electro-chemical interaction mechanical

[Repeat Chorus v1 & v2]
Track Name: Yours To Choose
[Verse 1]
Where to next? What takes your fancy? How you live?
Always your prerogative
No prescription, predetermined wrong or right
Defined by me

[Verse 2]
Where to next? Desired objective? You decide
Choice is yours, your slate us clean
No oblige predestination hands-are-tied
Preferred by me

[Chorus]
Where may wander? Where may explore? Up to you
Direction change, same continue, open / close door
Yours to choose

[Verse 3]
Sacred, our collaboration contributes
Always I facilitate
Many become one and different - separate
Yet remain divine

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental]

Where you come from? Whom a part of? Why you here?
Who take after? Always clear
Wonderful, my spark of splendour, day and night
In dark and light

[Repeat Chorus]
Track Name: Now ... A Momentary Apparition Will O' Wisp
[Verse 1]
Oh my child of innocence
In your openness to trust
So assume your facts be safe
Always black and white, never grey

[Verse 2]
Oh my child of certainty
In your eagerness to please
Never doubt your truth is sure
Suspect absolute in fact flawed

[Chorus]
Past is fading fast
Future - intangible
Now ... a momentary apparition will o' wisp

[Verse 3]
Oh my generation next
From your pinnacle present
Cannot touch your history
Though yesterday now used to be real

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental]

[Verse 4]
Oh my point on journey long
Embarkation port forget
Destination mystery
No way understand 'now' context

[Repeat Chorus]
Track Name: Passage Of Time
[Chorus]
Passage of time facilitates unmanifest manifest
Experience before-after contextual self-expression
Establish stage - enable taste desire fulfilled objective
Passage of time - see how it serves

[Verse 1]
Try see you 'preciate arrangement
Collaboration
You on board, accept this, celebrate
Good by you, you approve, keep my faith

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 2]
My journey direction destiny
Personal - subjective
My worthy, my yard stick for succeed
Pray never mine only forget it

[Instrumental]

[Breakdown + spoken word]
Believing this process of manifestation is going on for everyone, and always under the project management, and with the blessings, of God, let me not judge or interfere with others aspirations simply because they do not fit with my own present personal viewpoint of worthy (after all, that is purely contextual to my own current chosen objectives), rather let me always strive to be a positive in the lives of those with whom I cross paths today.

[Repeat Chorus]
Track Name: I Have My Fantasy
[Chorus]
I have my fantasy
How things are meant to be
Parallel reality
Where all are family
Like distant memory
Sometimes it feels to me
From life time previous
Is my insanity?

[Verse 1]
Where every animal
Also has right to live
Where unimaginable flesh as food to eat
Nobody would believe

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 2]

Regardless truth believe
Is seen as brother / sister individual
Part and parcel divine

Look twice like recognise me
Something familiar you see

[Verse 2]
Stop in your tracks, shake head turn back
Retrace your steps, say hello
Where do I know you from pray tell?
Dig deep your memory call

[Chorus v1]
Did we share life time previous?
Were you my enemy / friend?
Reveal to me connection past

[Verse 3]
Feel as I stand before you here
Relationship rekindle
Anonymous other reject
Though who we were now forget

[Chorus v2]
Did we share life time previous?
Were you my father / mother?
Reveal to me connection past

[Instrumental + spoken word]
What if we all have a loving inner circle of soul companions with whom we take birth again and again over multiple lifetimes, as we support and facilitate mutual explorations of the divine within? And when we meet someone in this life with whom we feel immediate, yet unexplainable, connection, this is because we are reuniting with a soul we know already in the deepest possible way?

[Chorus v3]
Did we share life time previous?
Were you my soulmate lover?
Reveal to me connection past
