Be Loved

I want what's in your eyes

I just want what's in your eyes

I just want to be loved by you

These kinds of things can't be spoken

We can see it with our eyes open

I can be just what you need

It can be just that easy

I just want to be loved by you

A while ago I saw them staring at me

But when I saw you, I could finally see

Could we make it more?

I want what's in your mind

I just want what's in your mind

I wish that we could just see inside

The way you helped me realize

I just want to be loved by you

Is there ever anything else?

 

Cosmic Living Room

Well come on, step into my living room

I know outside it's some kind of nova

Well faster, shake off your boots now

Look around, outer space is my home

Our living room is so much to everyone

Black holes and starlight

You look so happy just to be alive

Like stars, ideas expand your mind

The colony fills the space

The universe is your face

Know that we are not alone

Because your face is my home

It's all right to ask all the questions

In my cosmic living room

The pull of the answers won't try to bend you

Who are you, and what am I?

Yeah, that's love there hanging on the walls

The infinite corners of space and time

Pull it down and give it to yourself

The beautiful being with endless eyes

The colony fills the space

The universe is your face

Know what we are not alone

Because your face is my home

Come into the cosmic living room

 

 

In A Dream

My brother and I were out in space

A vacuum in a sober place

Our relatives were spread around

If our lungs were crushed there was no sound

In a dream

The invasion came from other lands

The one way road was at an end

The capsule took us far away

The prison guards fell that day

In a dream

The men and I were up above

The alarm that sounded tore our hearts

The seagulls rose from the bay

It was a monolithic tidal wave

In a dream

What was it that I had thought?

Was it me or was it not

Synapses lighting up my brain

'Cause all of consciousness could change

In a dream

 

Time

Looking at the stars, looking at my hands

One of these days I'll figure it out

How I came to be standing here right now

Long ago here on earth 

I lonely farmer met a girl

She looked him in the eyes

And told him softly what she could not find

They took time learning how

To borrow from the earth and give it back

In the love they had found

Only mountains can remember when it was so real

Was so real

In the sand, lines are drawn

To remind us one important thing

Fairy tales may be true

But nothing stands up the winds of change that blow so strong

Blow so strong

Someday soon we'll make it there

So grab my hand and take me back

To a time that's right for me

Where I can be reborn again every day

Every day

 

What Is Truth

The other day, I started staring

Window shades kept the same

It was I, that was changing

The heat released from my hands

There was my mind, warping, wanting

I touched my face, it was the same

I hadn't moved, but I was moving

Somewhere new, a new dark space

Treetops and clay and soil

Where is the turmoil?

What am I made of, down below and up above

What is truth?

Clouds in the sky won't dissipate

The ones in my eyes are the same

So much in view, the ones I love

What should I do with clouds in the way?

Was quite a while, the light was bright

Knew I could fall if they pulled me right

The warmth in my hands, is rising upward

The folk of my soul can feel it so

Festivals and bastions

Love will happen

Now it is put aside, it is winter in my mind

Love is truth

 

Followers

Thought provoking while pot smoking

The senators bleed us slow

Looking up to and voting for

People we don't know

Run away from them, or show them your worth

It makes no difference for their purse

My star pattern told me

That I can't fall asleep

Righteous mind are righting nothing

And the hole's too deep

I'll follow nothing that's outside

I'll bring it inward and be all right

The song lines of the underworld

Will perplex our souls black

Sitting, waiting procrastinating 

Is how they pay us back

I'll bring it upward 

To my chest

I'll let my nature do the rest

I'll follow nothing that's outside

I'll bring it inward and be all right

 

Don't Wait For Me

Twelve times I've sat back and watched your feet pace

A chainsaw in the forest and dried mud on your face

This time I've led you to the land of the pines

I fell into the valley behind

What if I missed a line?

Don't wait for me

Go and see what you can see

Went down the west coast

To check on my best friend

Sometimes he fills my hands

With God's instruments

Stopped in Frisco, got lost in the street

I blamed it on the fog

I still helped you along

Don't wait for me

Go and see what you can see

Don't wait for me

The sky is wide and so is the sea

Why did we go north?

We were so poor

We held the reins, somehow we still stayed sane

We looked at the wooden signs at the beach near Arcata

We ran in the direction they pointed us to

You were in my right arm

The sea in my left

Can't remember if we slept

It was my fault you left

Don't wait for me

Go and see what you can see

Don't wait for me

The sky is wide and so is the sea

 

Lost Relation

The world is old

And our minds are always young

Too young for us to know how to slow down

Don't forget how we got here

In the valley of the wind

Beyond the seas of sand

Where centuries of man and fire reign no more

There permits an ancient way

Of balance undisturbed

Where water flows, and flowers grow on their own

Break free from this lost relation

To the one thing that has the power to slow us down

Break free from this lost relation

To the one thing that has the power to show us how

Come away with me

To some forgotten shore

So we can find where we came from

In the end you'll see

Everything you know

Never existed without this piece

The challenges await

In this deserving life

To reveal what was left behind

Finally we know

The lack of reasons why

We have thrown away this prize

Break free from this lost relation

To the one thing that has the power to slow us down

Break free from this lost relation

To the one thing that has the power to show us how

The grass is green

The water's always pure

The sun is shining every day

I've never seen

Such a peaceful place

How were we ever led so astray?

The world is old

But our minds are always young

Too young for us to know how to slow down

Don't forget how we got here

 

Gods

Back the way we came, and forward to the mist

I won't forget the way I look at you like this

Look at you like...

Now the labyrinth is moving and I'm okay

I can approach you like I'm waking on a new day

Waking on a new day

I heard the pyramids were built before the storm

We are humanity and we are the gods

We are the gods

I thought I knew what to believe

I fell into it

Now I see that we are all that is

We don't need anything

Our eyes bring us home

But when we're exposed, we're moving stones

The weight on my shoulders made me feel like the god I was

So you took my head into your golden palms

Into your golden...

Now we'll ride together into the Olympus light

To feel your eternity is feeling that all is right

Feeling that all is right

I thought I knew what to believe

I fell into it

Now I see that we are all that is

We don't need anything

Our eyes bring us home

But when we're exposed, we're moving stones

 

Joben

You look up at night 

Moon beams are pulling you

I look at my life

People are so confused

I'll help you stand your ground

You think you're alone

Just look at someone else

Ask them how they feel

Who knows, it might help

What could be real, just look up

What could be real, don't give up

Looking at your hands

Not knowing what they're worth

Working for the dime

But what is worth your work?

Let's explore that

What is it you love?

We all know in our hearts

Put your knew hands there

It may be a good start

What is your work, just look up

What is your work, don't give up

 

The Hills

Dawn will break upon our eyes

When we choose to see

The Cascade mountains did divide

The white man from the sea

Our home is in the foothills 

Of what was once untouched

Now we stare into the sky

And wonder what's for us

As the setting sun paints on

The hill behind our home

We can see the paintings of 

The people that have gone

We could feel the pain if we let the pain subsist

But better that we join our hands

Start mending what exists

Even if they had it right

On whatever side

It would lead to something that

We would have to decide

Now the power is in our hands

The path is in our eyes

What will we do with what we have?

That is why we're alive

Now we stare into the sky

That is why we're alive
