Brink of Things When I’m feeling on the brink of things And I’m starting to think about things And if I’m acting a little insane It’s simply cuz’ I was waiting to be saved Chorus: I start to think, why do people think That this day ain’t anything. My mind’s confused, my senses blown, my thoughts flown into Spring. I look back to where I’ve been, can’t see where I’m gonna go Doesn’t really matter, then again What do I know? Do, do, do, do ,do, do…… I’ve been there, once or twice Oh, no, no, no, no Maybe three times When I’m feeling on the brink of things And I’ve gotta gotta let loose of things And I’ve lost my direction and I’m afraid It’s simply cuz’ I was waiting to be saved Chorus: I start to think, why do people think That this day ain’t anything. My mind’s confused, my senses blown, my thoughts flown into Spring. I look back to where I’ve been, can’t see where I’m gonna go Doesn’t really matter, then again What do I know? Do, do, do, do ,do, do…… I’ve been there, once or twice Oh, no, no, no, no Maybe three times Maybe three times Maybe three times

EVOLUTIONARY This is only the beginning, this is only the beginning. Only the beginning gonna’ wake up, gonna’ wake up one day. Only the beginning gonna’ wake up, gonna’ wake up on the way. seeing myself as it comes around, comes around naturally. see it for yourself as it comes around, comes around naturally. Oh and mother nature knows we’ve got to get back to the soul It’s Evolutionary. Circle on, come around, follow it, come on hurry. Circle on, come around, follow it, come on hurry. Come along, follow it, feel it come alive with me. Come along, follow it, feel it, come alive with me. Oh and mother nature knows we’ve got to get back to the soul It’s Evolutionary. This is only the beginning....

MAD CRAZY MAD ride the ocean on a silver plate on the shore waits my daddy in grey my mommas watching the evening news as she sits under an oak tree in the middle of june and its so so strange the way in dreams nothing ever stays the same and I follow the people as they lead the way madcrazy madcrazy madcrazy mad rescue me from the world that's spinning round and round and round the book I read said the sky is green what's up with that said the man in the ten-gallon hat as he drives a tractor thru the urban streets and he takes the key to the door to the forest full of trees waiting wanting wishing wanting only me never wonder never doubt never disbelieve madcrazymadcrazymadcrazymad rescue me from the dark that scares me in my sleep we'll just call that reality only comfort that I know is that I can wake when they are hungry and take some fear from the dreamer that's lost in light years takes from her pocket a marvelous thing the clock strikes six and I'm ever-wondering madcrazymadcrazy madcrazymadcrazymad

Among the Spirit world Like a ghost, I am invisible an apparition.... with knowing eyes and a vibrant soul. but today I am alone. Simply observing, traveling through dimensions and ignoring the clock. Within love, I am mad wearing white, I silently tiptoe through these halls with my fellow observers of life. I AM ALIVE. I create my own freedom, coinciding with my identity. I create my own world, and it seems to me that I am alone today, Maybe its best to be alone. to remain silent, though I am desperate for a voice. Constantly seeking, constantly changing, and making my reality. BUT THERES DAYS like today when everything I thought was true and real, spins and whorls out of control, leaves a ghostly haze upon my soul, then scatters to a hundred-billion pieces. Among the spirit world, nothing seems tangible though the light illuminates my being. IN THE SHADOWS it seems far, far away, but the road is golden, paved by those who have traveled that way, those who have walked the great distance........and cried many tears. FOR THE JOURNEY I know..........seems long and dreadful, but each moment filled with the wonder of life. My passion is strong, but today my vision is weak. so I glide knowing that above the surface of the waves, I will return safely to shore eventually.

Caught a Window In through the outside, crossing worlds to just walk by. Waiting it out, while the deal is done, will it ever end? Like clouds rolling in, my head trys to spin, my feet on the ground, my breathe like the air, they cannot see me, am I really anywhere? I think it’s time to be leaving. None of this really happened none of it is true I stand here as an observer, while life works its way through. Only minutes have past, and the ritual ends and a doorway opens, and the waves roll in, the train leaves the station as quickly as it came in. I think its time to be taking this opportunity. I think it’s time to be leaving. None of what I say matters None of it is true Unless you choose to give these words meaning but you’re gonna have to find your own truth. You’re gonna find it You’re gonna find it find it find it

CHANGE HAPPENS Change...it happens like life. What is happening to you, are you creating, do you have a focus to put your passion into? What is it? Do you know, and just can’t say? You are human, like everybody. chorus: A notion of motion, drift effortlessly within. I dream of an ocean, made it out of the whirlwind. And the air is warm, it’s the season of green. Heartstrings are long now, and the soul can be seen. Change....it happens, like life. You have made me in your image, now here you are within my eyes. It’s for dreams, and hopes, and wishes, why do I wanna get in? I can bring something to it, all I’ve got to do is sit and spin. chorus: A notion of emotion, flowing effortlessly. I dream of a lifetime, where we can be everything. And the air is warm, it’s the season of green. Heartstrings are long now, and the soul can be seen. bridge All in all it’s said and done, every moment is the same, time holds no boundaries. We can finally drift away, whatever you suppose it to be, it really is...truly. And the winds of change blow freely, I can feel you near me, I can feel you near me. Change happens Change happens Change........it happens.

Tell Me What You've Heard Today, I am not afraid to be stung, to be hurt Pain is an emotional teacher, and if it is knowledge we seek then why are we afraid to experience everything? For in experience we may truly know, this is the best teacher....LIFE. In living we will become aware, in awareness we, as persons will find that these glass houses in which we live, are those walls that have been built. Break the glass? NO.......why, when there is a door? but now the door is locked from the outside, and the world is strolling by and we are calling, "hey somebody let me out!" but out there the world is the same, and in here our reality is changing, so we give up, and we grow hungry and tired, and we starve, and we wither away. Once upon a time I awoke to find myself torn and tattered.........but I could see until the ends of the earth. and I stood and looked upon a whole new world, a place of possibility where so much more could be done by everyone. and I turned to see the glass was now a mirror and there was me. and I looked into my own eyes, and saw that which is truly me. and I ran.... towards the image, towards the glass shattering, I fell to the other side into the world unlocked FREE. With the scars of my imprisonment, I stepped into life, and now I am ready, and I am ecstatic.
