A New Earth 04:19
Nobody likes an angry singer ‘cept a teenager listening to punk Nobody likes an angry woman except another one Nobody likes an angry lover, yet there’s so many of them Nobody likes an angry person and still here I am 2019 on Planet Earth May all this anger rebirth 2019 on Planet Earth May all this anger rebirth A new earth Somewhere inside of me A new earth peaceful and free A new earth miraculously A new earth for you and me Nobody likes a angry child who just wants to be loved Nobody likes an angry father except another one Nobody likes an angry country tearing itself apart Nobody likes an angry people yet here we are Nobody likes anger running up their spine Nobody likes an urgent message saying now is the time Nobody likes an angry woman singing her truth But here i am, this is what i do I am just like you I am angry too Nobody likes an angry moment but they come and go Nobody likes to admit there’s not much we really know Nobody likes to remember we’re all gonna die Nobody ever gets curious if that too is not a lie

Six 03:24
When I was born I made my family five Two older brothers and two parents so alive We lived like that for about 3 years Then number 6, she came Thank God, another girl My mother dreamed her in to be I didn’t know it when back then But she had come to complete our family We were six Coming together Six Loving ourselves into better Six Coming together All the parts into one All the parts into one Six years ago my mother left this earth And for a while it felt like we were five Til I looked up and saw her six grandchildren And never felt her so alive They are six Coming together Six Loving us all into better Six Coming together All her parts into one All her parts into one I remember when I was six, I could feel the whole universe Oh, but it frightened me, so I learned to hide it away It’s taken me 36 years to let it all come through again And now here I am……..42 Which is just Six Coming together Six Loving myself into better Six Coming together All my parts into one All my parts into one Six points on the star of David Six days to create the world Six cells in a bees honeycomb All the parts into one All the parts into one

(Algonquin Water Song) Nee bee wah bow End die en Ah khee mis quee Nee bee wah bow Hey ya hey ya hey ya hey Hey ya hey ya hey ya ho It doesn’t matter which ocean it is When those waves start crashing, instant bliss And it doesn’t matter, west coast or east When those waves are rolling, I am free Cause I am the Ocean, I am the Sea I know where I came from and who I’m supposed to be I am the Ocean, Every single wave May we all rise and awake It doesn’t matter which which country I’m in When those waves start crashing, I’m home again It doesn’t matter who’s sitting next to me When those waves are rolling, I am free

You taught me how to pray You taught me how to cry You taught me how to stay And give it one more try You taught me how to laugh And enjoy the ride You taught me how to give You taught me how to die 11 years later and you’re still here Deep inside my heart guiding a path so clear 11 years later, still feels like yesterday When I watched your soul expanding away How I watched your soul expanding away Sometimes I wish I could still hear your voice In all it’s judgement, in all it’s love Sometimes I wish I could feel your body too In all its imperfection, in all its truth 11 years later and you’re still here Deep inside my heart guiding a path so clear 11 years later, still feels like yesterday When I felt your soul expanding away How I felt your soul expanding away I remember when you called me strong I am sorry for when I was afraid You promised to talk to me after you were gone Thank you for always guiding my way 11 years later and you’re still here Deep inside my heart guiding a path so clear 11 years later, still feels like yesterday When I watched your soul expanding away How I felt your soul expanding away I still feel your soul expanding today

Even though I want to give up, I’m not gonna Cause there’s no good in that Even though I want to give up, I’m not gonna Cause the world needs what I have It may kill me to get this next sound out But I know I’m held I know I’m held Somebody help me Somebody give me everything that I need right now Somebody show me I am worthy somehow Cause I know the world needs exactly who I am And I’m the only one that’s keeping it from me And from everyone I gotta rise up be free Rise up be free Rise up be free Remember how to be me and be happy Rise up be free Rise up be free Rise up be free be me be happy May my struggle and resurrection Inspire somebody else to struggle and Resurrect the very thing they’re here to tell My story, my purpose, my way of being true May my struggle inspire you Cause I’m so tired of struggle Tired of the race Hiding deep inside Never know the grace Gotta let it out find a way to be All that I am Set it all free And may my struggle and resurrection Inspire you Yes may my struggle and resurrection Inspire you to be true We’re not gonna give up, even when we want to Cause there’s no good in that Not gonna give up, even when we want to The world needs what we have Gotta believe we’re worthy Gotta believe it’s true I have something and so do you And may our struggle and resurrection Inspire somebody else to struggle and resurrect The very thing they’re here to tell Our story, our purpose, our way of being of being true May our struggle inspire you Cause I’m so tired of struggle Tired of the race Hiding deep inside Never know the grace Gotta let it out find a way to be All that I am Set it all free And may my struggle and resurrection inspire you May my struggle and resurrection Inspire you to be true To be true To be true To be true

Be Creative 02:17
11 years ago you knew you were dying But no one believed you Including me We didn’t want to believe We didn’t know how to live without you I wonder if you felt afraid Or alone Or helpless Kind of how I feel right now 11 years later 11 years 11 years later 11 years ago I chose myself Began a journey of self love and truth I wanted to separate from you Here I am now Still struggling with the same things Loss Food Mother Anger Angry. So angry. It’s an 11 year and I was thinking that was good And now I’m not so sure To be creative is to Feel pain and joy Like polar opposites To be creative is to Realize they are one To be creative is to know death is only a moment No matter how much fear it may awake To be creative is to know your mother was your greatest love And also a servant of the Divine To bring you back to yourself To be creative is to cry and write and listen and cough Allowing energy to move through you because You are an antenna for love To be creative is to laugh at how painful it can be to be alive To be creative is everything So be creative Be creative and Trust To be creative is why we are here And who we are Be Creative

Funny thing about Bliss It’s gonna go away Funny thing about life It’s gonna end someday Funny thing about you Best heart I’ve ever known Funny thing about me Here again alone And I Trust my Heart Like the ocean flowing On and on And I Trust my breath Like a river that never Ends or begins And I trust me And I trust you And I trust everything in all we do I trust love Whatever that is I’m so grateful for our moments of Bliss Funny thing about truth It’s gonna have its way Funny thing about change It comes everyday Funny thing about now It’s all we ever have Funny thing about me I love to laugh Hold on to me, Hold on to you Funny thing about songs They can come like lightning bolts Funny thing about love It’s in all these notes Funny thing about loss It’s gonna just keep happening Funny thing about us We were born to sing And I Trust my Heart Like the ocean flowing On and on And I Trust my breath Like a river that never Ends or begins And I trust you And I trust me And I trust one day we will all be free Cause I trust love And all that it is I’m so grateful for our moments of Bliss Hold on to me Hold on to you

Love Again 03:56
I remember the first time my heart was broken Thought I’d never love again I remember the first time I fell to my knees Thought I’d never love again Oh but here I am Loving you Here I am Living true I remember the first time I played a song Felt like energy straight from my heart I remember the sting of someone’s critical thoughts And I remember how I shut it all off Oh but here I am Singing for you Here I am Living true It’s not what happens to us that makes our life It’s how we get back up again It’s not what we lose that makes our life It’s how we learn to love again And again and again and again And again and again and again And again and again and again Love again and again and again and again

Sanctity 05:16
I know you think I’m crazy Spent my whole life trying to prove you wrong But I woke up this morning And realized exactly where I belong Inside the sanctity of my own heart I know that this looks crazy But I don’t have time to prove you wrong Cause I woke up this morning And realized exactly where I belong Inside the sanctity of my own heart Let it rise like the dawning of a new day May we realize there is nothing more to say Let it rise like a star for everyone May all this questioning finally be done Cause I see, I see now and I hear And I let love awaken beside every fear Inside the sanctity of my own heart Let it rise like a dawning of a new day May we rest in the emptiness, there is nothing left to say Let it rise like a star for everyone And may all this questioning finally be done Who we are is what we seek Oh blessed are the meek What we know is not at all what it is I’m so grateful now beyond bliss Let it rise like the dawning of a new day May we all realize there is nothing left to say Let it rise like a star for everyone May all this questioning finally be done May all this questioning finally be done May all Beings finally be One

If I could make it better by writing a song, you know I would But I stopped living my life long ago from should If I could lift it all up, take all your pain away You know I’d sing that song, that is a prayer that I would pray I’ve shown you the light I’ve shown you the door And I just can’t keep doing it anymore No no my love it’s time for you To walk your way on through It’s time for you To walk your way on through I can’t do it for you No no no I just can’t do it for you It’s time to walk your way on through If I could write a song to heal the world that’s what I’d do But how many of us even believe that could be true If I could lift it all up, take all the pain away That is a song I’d sing, that is a prayer that I would pray We’ve been shown the light We’ve been shown the door And we just can’t keep doing this anymore No no my love it’s time for You To walk your way on through It’s time for you To walk your way on through no one’s gonna do it you No no no no no one’s gonna do it for you It’s time to walk your way on through It’s time to walk your way on through I am always with you It’s time we walk our way on through

Born Free 04:51
Sometimes I remember when I was born So much possibility in store So many people making so much noise But I can feel the silent unlimited void I was born a pure white light And all my life I have been fighting the good fight Now I just sit back allow and let it all be Watch out world I am born free Watch out world I am born free Like the sun, I shine on everything Every step I take and every note I sing And I invite all of you to rise up too I am nothing without you I am nothing without you Sometimes I remember when I was born So much possibility in store So many people making so much noise But I can feel the silent unlimited void You were born a pure white light All your life, you have been fighting the good fight Just sit back allow and let it all be Watch out world we are born free Watch out world we are born free Asato Ma Sadgamaya Thomasoma Jyortirgamaya Mrityorma Amritam Gamaya Asato Ma Sadgamaya (Lead me from untruth to Truth Lead me from darkness to Light Lead from death to Immortality)
