Track Name: Inner Peace Fix
Inner Peace Fix
Tits and bits and godflugstogix,
I’m hankering after the innerpeace fix,
Protected, erected and tall...
On full power
Cos there’s no-one gonna burn down this tower,
There's no-one gonna burn down this tower,
Times are ripe and reasons laid its rhyme,
Composure is still, focussed in its prime oh
I know what I want and how to yellow this show
Step out of the darkness, embrace your inner glow...
Ohhhhhhh
If you can see, who you want to be,
Then be who you want to see...
Everyone's trying to create the new best thing now,
wild pulse, body frequency, the cold swing,
Bass grit submerged in this beat pit,
Covered in negative melodic counterfeits
Oh who gonna make, take it, rake it,
With the insinuating compassion to take it from
behind the times,
Jelly flab eyelines, wrinkling with laughing signs,
If you can see, who you want to be
Then be who you want to see...
Track Name: Rice
Rice
Have you ever cooked rice,
for one person, for just one meal?
I have and it’s rather disheartening…
I want to cook a big pot of stew
And have 7 around the table
All dancing, laughing, joking, talking about what’s new.
For this though I need a man
And I need one soon,
Maybe he’s around the corner.
Holding a wooden spoon…
I can’t wait to be with him in his car,
Wind in our faces, oh listening to our favourite tunes,
With the landscapes gushing past us,
With the sun beaming in
And neither or us are saying anything,
We’re just sitting there enjoying our silence
And that’s when we turn to look at one another,
And the fattest grin takes over
our face from one side to the other…
And that’s when we’ll know oh oh oh
And that’s when we’ll know
That is internal, eternal glow is ignited,
Ignited, ignited by him
Oh him,
By him
Track Name: No
NO
You have to learn your self-respect,
You have to see your worth,
And if you don't many regrets shall curse your soul.
You have to see the value of self-focus
And if you do it will take you where you want to go,
Just follow the flow…
Stop intoxicating with sheer boredom,
oh stop and free your mind,
Cos if you don't many regrets,
shall continue to curse your soul…
***
And Remember in times of weaknesses
to say NO no no no no no no no no no
Track Name: Weaving In and Out of Passages
Weaving in and out of Passages
Weaving in and out of Passages of life and democracy,
Many people crying for help
Where's the philosophy?
Minimalised, maximised
Life is a mystery,
Fact or fiction we are all history.
Money is corruption
Corruption is money
Take a look at the way we live,
don't you think it’s kind of funny?
Wanting to be right to fit on the book,
Fuck that, be yourself and people will look.
Sex, Joy, wanting to be free is wanted by her him you and me.
Wisest is she, is she who knows she does not know,
What we're coming to baby, where we're going to go.
Forwards, Backwards
Under and over,
All I needs my personal chauffeur x4
Got to look forward, no time to look back,
Get yourself together girl,
Get yourself on track
What are you scared of, wrong of the right
Think make sure, you'll be sound of the night
Something sparkled in his spine
The view of delight couldn't help but shine
The thought of feeling oh so divine,
Made him walk across towards the line
Something sparkled in his spine
The view of delight couldn't help but shine
The thought of feeling oh so divine,
Made him walk across towards the line
Wanting to be right to fit on the book… (repeat from above
Track Name: Morph Figurine
Stuck in this rut,
She knows she'll never know.
Cos she's a morph figurine,
Who don't know her original stature...
***
As the stars call,
Crying to the moon,
She disintegrates in to a diesel thick lagoon.
Flicker the ambitions of yesterday,
Flying full, cravings grey,
She cries...

Please don't see through her
Please don't see through her
Through her x 4
Please don't see through her
Track Name: Love is
Love is

She came in, in a flood of fears,
Reeking of negativity,
Reeling all the impossibilities,
He stood solid,
Strong, wise, like a tree
Smiling sweetly.
Calm down, don’t worry, just go slow
It’s not about yesterday or tomorrow it’s about now
And the love we have to share and the love we have to show.
Oh please feel no sorrow…
She pardoned her sadness
and they realised they were hungary
So they ate potato cakes and cheese.
And lettuce, and gherkin and sweetcorn,
Tabasco oooh and a little bit of chutney!
Well this sent them into a whirl of chuckle and swirls
The swell of doubt had been oh so lifted.
Oh how can it be so wrong?
When combined together their recipes are all so gifted…
***scat off***
Oh how can it be so wrong?
When combined together their recipes are all so gifted…
But
(following poem written by Valerie Carr)
Love is
Many shapes, many sizes,
Many colours, many guises,
Often with bizarre surprises,
Often plain and often boring,
Days on end without soaring,
Hour and hour of basic choring
Love is
Flights of fancy often missing oh
Stretching spaces without kissing and
Sometimes only times for wishing…
Love is
(written by Valerie carr)
But undisturbed the roots grow strong
The solid girth of tree takes time
Then the two will come to know
Both their reasons and their rhymes
The path is full of right and wrongs and
Goes beyond the ending of this songs
But oh just to see you smile and
to laugh in your arms every once in a while.
That is what… Love is
Track Name: Oak
Oak
Falling like a feather
I float into your heart,
Landing with soft pleasure
I’m tickled by your laugh
And as the world keeps on turning when your away, we’re never apart.
I see the universe in your eyes,
You see the sun in my heart,
And as this oak keeps of growing, closer and deeper, right from the start.
And in your mind I lay by the lakeside of your thoughts,
And in your smile, I bathe in the moonshine of your heart,
And in your eyes, I bathe in the moonshine of your love
As the mountains beam so proud, clouds of doubt float on by,
And as the blue skies shine so loud,
All clouds disperse with a sigh.
And as this oak keeps on growing, fatter and deeper, this I can’t deny.
And in your mind I lay by the lakeside of your thoughts,
And in your smile, I bathe in the moonshine of your heart,
And in your eyes, I bathe in the moonshine of your love
We’re joined by the stars, the earth, the woods, the wind, the wild,
The ants, the cows, the dragonflies
We’re joined by the stars, the earth, the woods, the wind, the wild,
The ants, the cows, the dragonflies
With you with you with you with you with you ……
I'm safe like child
And in your mind I lay by the lakeside of your thoughts,
And in your smile, I bathe in the moonshine of your heart,
And in your eyes, I bathe in the moonshine of your love
Love ove ahahahahhahahah
Your crest delicate
The cycles of doubt are further apart
Our love growing now as your moonshine melts my heart.
Every day I wake by your side ,
Each view I spy resolves to
Art ahahahahhahahaha
La nuit est belle je suis trop folle pour ton amour ce soir…..
Track Name: My Friend and I
My friend and I
We are not 2, we are 100 maybe more,
A twinkling snake parade of lanterns,
Like grains of sand upon the shore,

Cos we’re an army,
A solid wall to face each foe that comes along,
A fortress strong behind each other,
A source of strength when things go wrong,

My friend and I
We are not 2, we are a party, a joyful crowd,
A festival of rainbow colours,
A band of minstrels singing loud…

Cos we’re a field of woodland flowers
A maypoles interweaving strands,
A candle,
Burning vigil
Across the earth….. all holding hands.

My friend and I
We are not 2,
We are a single abundant whole,
We have one spirit, one heart one soul
Our ties will bind till we grow old,

Cos we’re a solo of many voices,
A travelling theatre with a cast of 2,
A picture of many landscapes
One million facets that’s me and you

My friend and I
We are not 2 we are a party a joyful crowd,
A festival of rainbow colours
A band of minstrels singing loud

My friend and I
We are not 2,
We are a single abundant whole,
We have one spirit, one heart one soul
Our ties will bind…
Till we grow old.
Track Name: My Sweet Monk Grandad
My Sweet Monk Grandad
Ecologically wise,
I love to see your smile,
Never complains,
Just feels and gain.
You say you have a head like a stone,
You remind of Dalai Lama.
I love you dearly,
I love you sweetly
Don't be scared you will never be alone,
Please don't be scared.
Heavens shining up above
Heavens shining up above.
Strong like a warrior, harmless like a piece of moss
I love to see your smile
Inspiration, stimulation, and crazy imagination
Will always be running through my veins,
Pride explodes from my soul,
Knowing I am the third generation…
I'll always love, always recall you whenever you call me,
I'll always love you...
My sweet monk grandad,
My sweet monk grandad.
