Sentient Compass I know the way I feel it, it’s in my blood the song the call I hear it, my sentience my sentience, my sentience Only truth will leave these lips or I have sold my soul, i’m only human I have my slips, but I know the path i’m on, no way to stay nowhere to bread deceit of any kind, illuminate, exaggerate the goodness of your mind oh oh oh welcome gold x2 use the compass, ride the waves x2 ride the waves use the compass, ride the waves x2 ride the waves oh oh oh welcome gold x2 Holy scripture do abide the laws of humankind, sprout the seeds pull out the weeds, Eden will come alive remember who you are within, the sentience inside, and reconnect with what it means to truly be alive, oh oh oh welcome gold x2 use the compass, ride the waves x2 ride the waves use the compass, ride the waves x2 ride the waves oh oh oh welcome gold x2 Desire has eyes, my sentience x4

Catch up & slow down If my body’s in the past then who is here and now if my mind is in the future, I’ve got to catch up and slow down the present always patient never ceasing to exit but how these precious little moments i have missed they ask me why i have chosen this road, dancing in the love beyond fear, they ask me why i have surrendered it all, for the wisdom to know my own soul, who would i be if i was fearful of myself, who would i be if i was afraid of everyone else, how would i know if i’d never left my home, how would i love if i lived my life alone, i am humbled by all of the good things in this life, and i am grateful for the friends who share the time, i am a worrier surrendering the fight, i am a dreamer, dreaming wings of pure light. to reach the now we’ve got to slow down and catch up, catch up and slow down (x2) if all the things I've done do not fill this place inside my heart then what will a mighty river held from its embrace how do i let it flow to the sea with grace the places, names, the faces they will change but this love inside my heart remains the same letting go of the need to work it out may the beauty way unfold before me now

Responsible 05:49
Responsible how can we hold what we cannot keep, the deeper we go the more we release, i feel what i feel and it means what it means, the heart knows direction the eyes cannot see, oh the yearning, the aching desire, leading us home to the infinite fire, oh the yearning, the aching desire, leading us home to the infinite fire, and i will be responsible for all that feel bless my soul and you will be responsible for all that you feel bless your soul bless your soul bless your soul your mountain was high with a breathtaking view, we sat with the eagle till the moment he flew, with his departure destiny called and you, sailed to the north, as i flew to the south, and the whispering wind brought word of you praise, as you vowed to the sun, while calling her name, Every breath be It laid on her skin, The lover without and the lover within, and i will be responsible for all that feel bless my soul and you will be responsible for all that you feel bless your soul bless your soul bless your soul Bless my soul, bless our souls.

Messenger Excuse me if i sound rude, it’s not because I don't like you, it’s coz i’ve got work to do, and it’s going round in my head, don't takeout to heart my dear, don't write me off right here, Because when the time is right i’d like to know you, don't shoot the messenger if you want the medicine, i’m not perfect i’m just human, don't shoot the messenger if you want the medicine, open up your heart and lets begin, maybe I'm just like you, doing the best I can do, maybe i’m just like you, searching for the truth, mamma tell me whats wrong whats right, I was told to be better, be strong and fight, don't cry don't feel don't believe, don't dream, suffer all your life to feed a machine, well I want to feel love, want to feel lightness, and want to be told I am loved like this, I want to roar loud like a lioness, I want to feel safe when I'm in your embrace, you're still trying to be the man but you still don't understand, and you think that i’m crazy coz I live on the edge, Coz i’m standing near the ledge and i’m looking over the hedge, pushing all the triggers and i’m crossing all the lines, stepping out heart forward, rise and shine, all of these lessons are mine to own, all of the medicine I bring home, if I only listen I will feel, The soul and the rhythm of the music heals, the soul and the rhythm of the music heals. Stepping out of the shadows and into the light, surrender the question, surrender the fight, be one in body soul and mind, let it all go now, were on time, All of these lessons are mine to own, all of the medicine I bring home, if I only listen I will feel, the soul and the rhythm of the music heals, the soul and the rhythm of the music heals, the soul and the rhythm of the music heals, the soul and the rhythm of the music heals,

Lone Wolf 03:34
Lone Wolf When is enough enough, my heart just can’t go on, I don’t want to loose but I’m breaking up, Coz my heart can’t hear your song, My heart can't hear your song Is there anyone out there tuned into this frequency, will I be a lone wolf forever or will it all come to be, Hey, hey, hey, to loose what is isn't lost, to find what isn't found, there is a whisper in the wind, and I begin to hear the sound Is there anyone out there tuned into this frequency, will I be a lone wolf forever or will it all come to be, I feel the Way within me and I bless all that could be I hold my head and keep walking towards my destiny. Hey, hey, hey.

Ashes & Dust 03:49
Ashes and Dust Welcome home rest your weary eyes, you were never alone, now you can shed all them tears of where you've been, in this place where the medicine, will lead us through the labyrinth, all them spirit helpers, we are never without a guide, in the face of the infinite, I am humbled breathless, I am humbled breathless this ancient dust is the bones of our ancestor stones and they dance on the wind to the holy ghost do not fear what you hear, all this pain will disappear, and all these hearts that have been closed, will one day open like a rose, Oh mother wash this pain away, mother wash this pain, Oh mother wash this pain away, mother wash this pain, oh the fire, oh the fire, ashes and dust, carrying our prayers to the heavens above, transformation of these hearts, illumination let us get back to the start, mother wash this pain away, mother wash this pain, Oh mother wash this pain away, mother wash this pain, We are home, we are home we are not alone, oh mother wash this pain away, We are home, we are home ashes and dust, oh mother wash this pain away, We are home, we are home

Rains 03:28
Rains I cannot stop this feeling, everything is cooling down, I cannot change what is happening, I’ve just gotta ride it out, and they told me that it was coming, but i did not believe somehow, now I am caught in the tumbling, waters as they fall to the ground, when the rains come (x4) oh the rain, oh the rain, oh the rain, oh when the rains come, I try to forget the reason, that I was chasing the sun, I try to make peace with the seasons, and give thanks for every one, I’m remembering the tears I've shed, with this monsoon dripping on my head, I need a boat and a raincoat, Just to navigate my bed, when the rains come (x4) oh the rain, oh the rain, oh the rain, oh when the rains come, I've been thinking about life, about how to succeed and not just survive and, I’ve been thinking about where I’m going to live, your house, my house, how did it come to this, I’ve been thinking about time, where does it go and will it rewind and, I’ve been thinking about the loved ones I miss, where do we go after this oh, I've been following the light, And I’ve been making peace with the darkest night, Grandmother's tears she is bringing it down, we gotta learn to dance in the rain, or surely we will drown, when the rain come (x4) oh the rain, oh the rain, oh the rain, oh when the rains come,

Flowers 03:52
Flowers She comes and goes as she pleases, and asks for all the she needs, her path is narrow and winding, and it crosses all land and seas, an arrow that shoots through time and space, on a vision that once was conceived, and most will never understand, as she dances and plants her seeds, when concrete restricts and opinions oppress, she will cry for the mother beneath, she wants to be love for all that she be, not what the eyes of a man can perceive. Mother I cry for the pain of your daughters, for their beauty is miss-conceived, cut are the flowers and stripped of their powers, so the blinded eye is pleased She walks with the scars because they didn’t understand, now she bares them on skin and heart, she walks with the trees and together the bleed, seeping through the cracks of their bark. one old wise tree was destined to be, on her back carved a steel string guitar, a gift of the father that gives her great power, to walk strong and travel far Mother I cry for the pain of your daughters, for their beauty is miss-conceived, cut are the flowers and stripped of their powers, so the blinded eye is pleased, Mother i cry for the pain of you sons, for they own hands bring their misery, if only a light could shine and erase, the fault hopes of their dirty deeds, She wants to return to the purity of god, leave behind the pains of the earth, for her this journey is only beginning, there’s great beauty in what it’s worth.

We Have Won 03:37
We have won I search the world, I searched my soul and, to the love, I am coming home, fears withdrawn and hatred concurred, live the bliss I’ve always wanted, Mistakes forgiven and freedom granted, all the lies are falling through, hope and vision, in the eyes of our children, our heaven is coming soon, Warn and beaten by all the seasons and weathered by the raging storm, brother and sisters, come shine with the sun, we have changed it now, we have won, Thanks for being you, keep living with your heart, and I’ll see you out there in this beautiful world of ours, Path awoken and taking steps, smelling the flowers with every step, friendship lends it’s hand to you, join the circle, the tribe, you are so loved, Wilful spirit fully conscious, engaging in a love revolution, hear our voices, sing the songs of freedom, we’re singing because we have won, All forgiven, and given for one own, no claim, I am here to serve, all is given, love and compassion, I am just one but I am one of all, Thanks for being you, keep living with your heart, and I’ll see you out there in this beautiful world of ours.
