Everyone’s a lens witnessing The world through different frames Of unique meaning As the aperture expands The simplest mistake is to chase what’s missing And never see the world at play Only one truth waits when we end this journey We’ll never have that chance again The silence escapes, it’s deafening Information haze All consuming haste The world in every frame The simplest mistake is to chase what’s missing And never see the world at play Only one truth waits when we end this journey We’ll never have a chance again I long to find simplicity I need I long to find simple things

Hear her frozen thoughts Thawing on the inside Addicted reasoning Season dark holes lurking Enchanted riddles chance Breaking through her security But wordless poetry Fills her hearts of prisoners Hope, is here by my side She’ll make this journey an easier one She’s always too kind But nobody questions the motive of Hope. She’s there when I call But what is the real cost? When her conscience lies I’ll see where her purpose hides Hope, is here by my side She’ll make this journey an easier one She’s always too kind But nobody questions the motives of Hope.

Warning like clouds to an empty sky Turn a blind eye to the storm Alarms ring on silent and hide the time Nothing will ever unwind Deceitful denial distorts the truth Like poison to water supplies The writing on the wall is fading We steer our own course Beyond circumstance But who’ll make the choice with no second chance? We cannot delay the burdens of change To prosper today Till it’s too late Warning as clouds fill an empty sky Turn a blind eye The writing on the wall has faded We steer our own course And live with the dance But who’ll make the choice with no second chance? We cannot delay in sparing our world Cause our will today can save the earth Our will to change No more delay Our will to change No more delay Leave it buried forever

You belong in me A piece of you I keep I am yours and who I am is what you’ve made me With your gift of life Comes a constant prize Every time I see myself inside your eyes There’s no way for you to show more generosity Forced deliverance Given every chance Forming perfect shadows for our fearing Void coincidence Shaped experience Journeying through cycles disappearing There’s no way for you to show more generosity In nature’s way we’re paying forward generosity Lives run parallel In time the roles reverse Reciprocating all we’ve been given There’s no way for you to show more generosity It’s nature’s way of paying forward generosity

Stop filling up your life with chores for frozen reward When mind possessing objects call that you’ve no need for My father taught me “A job worth doing’s worth doing well The portrait of your life is what you make it" Hunting unpredictable fuel to feel good But monotonous addictive drones soon consume you But my mother taught me “A life worth living’s worth living well The portrait of your life is what you make it" My father taught me “There’s no point waiting for time to tell The portrait of your life is what you make it" The portrait of your life Go now create it

He said, “leave it all behind” We’re all just made of new beginnings You don’t have to pretend you’re something else Living like a soldier fighting against yourself Don’t let the ego carry your soul Blindly through the motions in full control He said, “free it all today” Judgement of yourself and others Cause we’re all part of the same tidal wave Rushing for that shoreline playing the greatest game Don’t let the ego carry your soul Blindly through the motions in full control

Show me reality Connect me Share my reality Connect with me Sharing secrets Posting visions Lives on show Long to reach you And connect to your real world Show me reality Connect with me Share your reality With me Noiseless voices Endless choices Seek control All points taken In cyber wastelands Lonely hearts grow There’s a way out Connect with me There’s a way back Just talk to me There’s a way out Connect with me There’s a way back Share my reality Connect with me Be my reality Connect with me

I wish I had a ticket I’d send you on a first class ride Through the hills to believing Your faith’s only fleeting If you claim to know the truth Your fate has got to leave the past Alone in potential here and now If you had a ticket Would you even take that chance? Standing on the edge when solid ground beckons I’d rather have a motive of passionate disbelief Than go through the motions With a lie in focus We’re all at depths unknown Watching the shadows grow Why fight to free yourself to wonder? We cling to what we know Old faith and lies on show Reopen up your mind to wonder How will you find your feet? When you’re running through the dark in line Emotionless and vacant Passing by each moment The chance of really seeing Can only come with new questions asked With newborn courage Uncertainty in focus

Put a mask on Pretty colours Fight the real you Put up posters Give them what they want Take an apple Plant it in you Fertilize within Sunday Singer Right beginner You think you’re getting through “We’ll have a party Come to our party” You just want to make your own rules with God You fool yourself to think your view comes from above Strong opinion based religion That’s just what you are Just another point debated with morals from afar Sunday Singer, pick your fools to play your tricks on But someday Karma wins you’ll never reach the good ones “We’ll have a party Come join our party” You just want to make your own rules with God You fool yourself to think a view comes from above

I’m climbing a ladder to the top of a heart And it beating along the way still keeps me hanging on The air’s getting thinner but it heightens the rush Like an addict who won’t give up I’ll reach her from above Cause I’m still winning in this game While I know I’m in her race I won’t let go Monopolize She’s naming her price till she’s traded in sunlight There’ll be no more dark skies But I’m still winning in this game While I know I’m in her race So I play a wicked game of chase While I know I’m in her race I won’t let go Yeah I’m still winning in this game While I know I’m in her race So I play a wicked game of chase Hoping for that single taste so I won’t let go
