Track Name: When The Day Begins
Woke up this morning
With a light shining down on me
Woke up this morning
Under a blanket of forgiveness

Something wonderful
Something incredible
Is happening to me
Something magical
Something invisible
To me

Woke up this morning
With a visit from an existential friend
Woke up this morning
I was touched by the spirit of the dead

Something wonderful
Something incredible
Is happening to me
Something magical
Something invisible
Indeed

Green leaves budding on the trees
Open up your flowers
And show them to bees!
Young birds singing in the breeze
When the night is falling
And when the day begins

Woke up this morning
With a visit from an existential friend
Woke up this morning
All my troubles were Iifted

Something wonderful
Something incredible
Is happening to me
Something magical
Something invisible
To me
Track Name: Guardians Of Our Time
Are they coming of age?
Are they ready for change?
Do they want to participate
Or keep things the same?

They’re making us yearn
They are giving us hope
Are they shaping the future for all of us?

Young hearts, young minds
Bring the revolution to life
Guardians of our time

May they stand on the rooftops
And the mountains beyond
May they call out like roosters
It’s time to wake up

And with energy boundless
And their spirits intact
Come light up the darkness
Come light up my path

Young hearts, young minds
Bring the revolution to life
Guardians of our time

And they’re not asking for much
Just a different approach
A system that involves them
One that they trust

So let’s give them their freedom
Allow them a voice
Tune in and receive them
Remember we were young once

Young hearts, young minds
Bring the revolution to life
Guardians of our time
Track Name: JC
Humble about the road you’d trodden
You don’t talk about too often
Seems a shame nobody’s on your side
Grateful about the hand you’d gotten
Count your blessings when you find them
You’re an angel who’s fallen by the wayside

Even when the game is over
I will fight to save your honour
‘Cause they are wrong and you are right
Even when the night had fallen
I will fight until it’s proven
That they are wrong
And you are right

Blinkered by the tales they’re told of
Controlled by the likes of Murdoch
Seems a shame so many people are selfish and blind
An apathetic race of robots
Show us what they’re really made of
When they leave an angel fallen by the wayside

Even when the game is over
I will fight to save your honour
‘Cause they are wrong and you are right
Even when the night had fallen
I will fight until it’s proven
That they are wrong
And you are right
Track Name: Seen By The Road
You were seen by the road
Hitching a lift home
Track Name: Folk Man Blues
Nobody knows me
Nobody came close
But now I feel you like some kind of ghost
And as I stand before you, I’m not worthy
Worthy of you
Did I ever say I loved you?
Then please allow me to

I love you

Give me my heartbeat back
Give me strength so I might see the sun one more time
Before I slip away and die
And as I stand before you, I’m not worthy
Worthy of you
Did I ever say I loved you?
Then please allow me to

I love you

I don’t believe in karma
I don’t believe in reincarnation
Or heaven as described to me
I just believe in these harmonies
And as I stand before you, I’m not worthy
Worthy of you
Did I ever say I loved you?
Then please allow me to
Track Name: Bowerbird (Where The Light Gets In)
Make the most of what is sweet and soon to turn sour
And keep true to what you believe in
The seed you sow will soon to flower
You can make a mountain out of a molehill
But you tend to spend your time within
Correct me if I’m wrong, is that a sparrow
Offering you their wing?

Make the most of what floats your boat
For soon it’s your turn to be the water
And keep true to the ocean wave
And know it’s time to lay low your anchor
You can navigate via that rainbow
But you tend to spend your time out of reach
Correct me if I’m wrong, is that a raven
Offering you some kind of twig?

The story’s halfway in
But is this not where life begins?
All my failure and my sins
Is this where the light gets in?

Are those birds offering you something?

Make the most of good advice
When overlooked you see less farther
And keep true to the ones that heal your deepest wounds
That are prone to open
You can take the dreamer out of the nightmare
But you tend to spend your time within
Correct me if I’m wrong, is that a bowerbird
Offering you some precious thing?

Are those birds offering you something?
Track Name: Whatever It Is
Whatever it is
Don’t let go of the rope
There are many roads to Rome
There are many hands to hold
Don’t let go, don’t let go
There are many miles to go
We’re making mountains out of molehills
Let me tell you this
That you’re part of it
Whatever it is

Don’t let go of the rope
Track Name: Eva
Eva
Have you seen her?
She wanders alone
Knows not which way to go
She’s waiting for someone to meet her

Eva
Have you seen her?
Her memory fades
Like the light leaves the day
She’s needing someone to be near her

Eva
Have you seen her?
She’s drifting away
Like the mist on the lake
Like the stream trickles into the river

Eva
Have you seen her?
She’s slipping away
She asks, whose is that face
Staring out from that mirror?

Eva
Have you seen her?
The love of her life
Sits still by her side
With his heart he believes he will free her

Eva
Have you seen her?
She closes her eyes
For the very last time
The shadow, it finally leaves her
Track Name: Butterfly
5,4,3,2,1, and she’s gone
Through the wind rain she is free once again to find love
5,4,3,2,1, and lift off
Through the prism of change she is free like the wind to find love

Why can’t I be like a butterfly?
Up in the sky, that’s where I want to fly

5,4,3,2,1, and she’s gone
From the crystallised cave she is free once again to find love
5,4,3,2,1, and lift off
She’s grown her own wings, now she’s free like the wind to find love

Why can’t I be like a butterfly?
Up in the sky, that’s where I want to fly
Track Name: Meeting's Adjourned
Feeling naked and raw
Like the day I was born
Fall asleep holding hands
With a married man
And unlearn what you’ve learned
Burn baby burn
This meeting’s adjourned one more time

Stop what you’re doing right now
Put the melody down
It’s been going around
Come and sing it out loud
And unlearn what you’ve learned
Burn baby burn
This meeting’s adjourned one more time

Come on and sit by my side
Let the moment arrive
We can sit for a while
We could even get high high high
And unlearn what we’ve learned
Burn baby burn
This meeting’s adjourned one more time

This meeting’s adjourned.
Track Name: Tweedy's Song
You will see the best of me
When I become a clown
Tell everybody
The circus is coming to town

You will know where I have been
When I become a clown
Tell everybody
The circus is coming to town

You will fall in love with me
When I become a clown
Tell everybody
The circus is coming to town

You will be a part of me
When I become a clown
Tell everybody
The circus is coming to town
