Track Name: Stumbling
If we don't make such promises
We won't need these lies
Wanna get my head clear
Like the automn skies

Stumblin' towards the heart
Stumblin'
Gotta feel my way around
It's humblin'

I came up by natures grace
On the far south coast
Walkin' in the dreamtime
With the holy Ghost

Stumblin' towards the heart
Stumblin'
All thinks come to pass
And leave us wonderin'

Stumblin' towards the heart
Stumblin'
Gotta turn your love around
Someday son

Universal kind
I've nothin' to defend
Bring me home again
I just wanna find
Bit o that piece of mind

So there i go, no more trouble

Universal kind
Is wanting to decend
Bring us home again
I aint got no time for
That fabled myth of men.
Track Name: Quite alright
No measure of health, No measure of wealth
Outside of what you feel
Guru's of taste, fall by the wayside
Nobody steers the wheel

It's quite alright
To drop these questions

The world only wants you
To want what they want you to want

Hawkin' your fear, no buyers round here
Minister on your bike
Pimpin your cure, I'll take it pure
Doctors can take a hike

It's quite alright
these are'nt my questions

The world only wants you, to want what the want you to want
Delusion will feed you as long as you're hungry for more
The greedy will lead you, long as you're waitin' your turn
Usual procedure, guess we'll just keep holdin' on?

It's quite alright, not my questions anymore
Happy never knowin', exactly what's in store

If there ever was a time of life, to overcome this ordinary strife
Bout now would be just fine, let your soul shine like a child

the world only want's you to want what they want you to want
Delusion will feed you as long as you're hungry for more
Usual procedure, just sit and watch London burn
Hope aint your friend, he'll steal you away in the end

It's quite alright

I've got nought to report
Not much to mention.
Track Name: Just a smile
It's just a smile I'm wearin'
It's just a smile I'm wearin'
because this world is cryin'
Cause we're tryin' to figure us out
Because the saint's were high
We've got nature all pimped out

I don't need no minder, or any go betweens
I left them back where I left my jeans
It's just a smile I'm wearin'

Don't need my clothes, I'm tired of those
It's just a smile I'm wearin'

Because the world's still asking
Cause we don't know which way's up
And we're multi-tasking
But it's one big coverup

I don't need no armour, or any steel toed boots
I'm a warrior in my birthday suit

I don't need no order, I don't crave no thread
In the mornin' light I'm clothed and fed

It's just a smile I'm wearin'
Track Name: Where did the time go?
Where do we go from here?
A stones throw or light years?
Around the bend or the photon sphere?
Does it explode or disappear?

Maybe it's all in our head
Hue's of blue, splashes of red
Those hungry ghosts are never fed
Better leave the questioner for dead

Where did the time go?
Where did the time go?
Must've been good, or I'd know

The well to do are gettin' fat
There's nothin new about that
Fire on the mountain and flood on the flat
But Papa's got a bran new habitat

From point a to b
measurment's arbitrary
For us and them, for you and me
It's coming undone for all to see.

Where did the time go?
Where did the time go?
Must've been good, or I'd know
Track Name: Rattle on
My hat blew off, back down the road
Old Darwins theory, moving the pace of a toad
Had to go it alone
Spiralling back into origins own.

Peace aint under lock and key
Grant your spirit amnesty
N'get a rattle on
Everybodies Job, so get a rattle on

Awella hell I'm in over my head
In my element
Elected my heart my soul government
Gonna hold this note and carry this tune
All my dreams fit in my shoe
Just like drops of precious rain
Every detail is gonna fall into place
Always on time, never on cue.

Peace aint under lock and key
Grant your spirit amnesty
N'get a rattle on
Everybodies Job, so get a rattle on

On my way back to Eden, Im up before dawn
Hitting the highway, and beating the storm,
forgetting all I've been told
Spiralling up on the wings of a song.
Just like drops of precious rain
Every detail is gonna fall into place
Always on time, never on cue.
Track Name: Invocation
Looming invitation, Ceaseless investigation
Lead me, into sweet temptation
Relieve me of my expectation

Exhausting all fuel in her path
Every molecule
No one counting in the aftermath
Enter the destroyer
May no one escape the wrath
She's gonna clear a bran new path

As the needy lead the blind
Towards the alter of the mind
The agent of the heart
Is gonna tear the seams apart

Enter the destroyer
May no one escape the wrath
She's gonna clear a bran new path
Track Name: No lifeguard on duty
Born to the mis education,
On this planet of fight or flight,
I don't suppose we'll change things overnight,
As long as we treat one and other,
Like we're born of another mother,
We'll find the occasion to cry,

Contract breached, we tried the reach the bough that bore the ripeness
But there's no lifeguard on duty
I'm drowning in a rare brand of beautiful
No one to rescue me

Born of imagination
Believing the dreams we had
Wake from our own creation and be glad
We can't stop what never began
Don't suppose we'll save this mortal skin
Gonna wake up tomorrow unbound.

There is no lifeguard on duty
I'm drowning in a rare bran of beautiful
No one to rescue me
Would'nt want there to be

This is where knowledge fails us
This is where language falls apart
Here is where we find humility
Here's where we don't beg for favours
Here's where we share in a brothers labour
Here's where we tear up the guarentee

There is no lifeguard on duty
I'm drowning in a rare bran of beautiful
No one to rescue me
Would'nt want there to be
Track Name: Chaos
Joy at last
Laughter pours from heavens throat
Chaos rains down
Something beautiful grows

Un obscured
Here we stand
In the midst
Of crucial strenghth
Chaos rains down
Something beautiful grows

No problem
No solution
No evolution

Miraculous

Tumble back forget your mind
Oil and water won't combine
Chaos rains down
Something beautiful grows

Love is deep, love is pure
Take the venom for the cure
Chaos rains down something beautiful grows

No problem
No solution
No evolution

Miraculous
