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

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

JC 03:01
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

You were seen by the road Hitching a lift home

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

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?

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

Eva 03:18
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

Butterfly 02:18
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

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.

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
