Track Name: Shine Your Own Light
LYRICS:

Go on and shine your own light
You don’t need to reflect the brilliance of others
You are brighter than a star

Go on and find your own way
You don’t need to look for answers from others
Within you here they are.

Over the boundaries of the unknown
Never fear to leap towards a stepping-stone

Go on and shine your own light
There’s no need to reflect the brilliance of others
You are brighter than a star.

Go on and find your own path
You don’t need to walk the distance
You can fly, spread your wings you will go far

Over the boundaries of the unknown
Never fear to leap towards a stepping-stone

Across the seven seas
You can sail as you please
Your life’s a voyage of discovery

Across the deep blue skies
A brand new day arises
Your choices are meant to be wise

Go on and shine
You’re star you’re so bright

Go on and shine, my child
you’re star you’re so bright

Track Name: History is Written in Blood
LYRICS:

History is written in blood
It’s no mystery
We haven’t learned a thing
From all the agony
Of the victims of our own insanity.
Are we too busy to see?
We’re about to repeat in all impunity
These acts of pure madness and atrocities.
It’s a book filled with rage
With a blank on the page
About the coming of age of peace
But there’s hope in the eyes of our youth
Until they realize it’s still
An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth.

All over the world…

Track Name: Find Myself Lost
LYRICS:

Once I found myself lost
On the straight road of my life
I went astray and I thought
Why on earth do I drive
On an empty tank of love?
I drove myself crazy
Unable to recall
What I was looking for

I didn’t know where to go
And I was getting nowhere
Afraid of my own shadow
I don’t know why I got so scared
Leading myself smack into the wall
I drove myself crazy
Unable to slow down
On the verge of a breakdown

So unaware that I wasn’t alone taking that road
Lost in despair looking for a milestone
To find my way home
When I found myself lost

It felt so unreal
Behind the wheel
Couldn’t see clear
Losing control

In need of direction
I was trapped in the dead-end of my quest
Couldn’t find my location
My whole existence reassessed
Before too long you crossed my path and
Then, I draw the conclusion
That the road to love
Was under construction

You were in my blind spot
And I couldn’t see you all that time.
I should have known better
That traffic jam was just a sign
While driving almost side by side
We were a collision
Waiting to happen
When we found ourselves lost…

Driving down the wrong side of this foggy road
I put the brakes on
Then you turned my life around
Saving me from self-destruction
And the affliction of tunnel vision
You revealed me to myself,
Now I understand you were my destination
Since we got each other now
We found our way back through the unknown
To this place that we call home

Now that you found me
I found myself
Finders keepers
Now I’m all yours

Track Name: Mother Nature's Infanticide
LYRICS:

The end of man won’t be the end of the world
Mother Nature’s Infanticide
Mother Nature’s Infanticide

We can see it coming

She’s been
Cheated
Mistreated
Her resources are depleted
She’s bruised
Abused and confused
Now she must choose
To get rid of the fruits
She carried in her womb
Our existence is doomed
We’re gonna get
What we deserve

She’s all worn-out
With more than she can bear
Unbalanced, tilting and spinning in despair
Suffocating trying to breathe some air
Wondering why life is so unfair

We pumped the essence of her past
In our vision of the future
She’s longing to be free at last
Burden of motherhood is torture

Open wounds in the atmosphere
Modern warfare in both hemispheres
Her choice is made we need to disappear
Our dear Biosphere will not shed a tear

Bipolar meltdown
She’ll watch us drown
Her distress is profound
She’ll think her crime is justified
It’s assisted suicide

She’ll choke us down
We won’t be found
She’ll bury us all, deep in the ground
Her parasites will all subside
Mother Nature’s Infanticide

This song is no prophecy
It’s a cautionary tale
Written in the skies and the seas
Or measured on the Richter scale

Are these gigantic eruptions
Caused by some mantle disruptions?
Or is the sacrifice of her prized possession
Nothing but a crime of compassion?

Track Name: Taken by the Tide
LYRICS:

Growing tide of convergence
Won’t turn around and let you float
You’re slated for submergence
When this giant wave will sink your boat

This surge rolls up like a scroll
You’ll be swept along by a flash flood
You’ll feel like a fish in a bowl
The media magnates are playing God

They’re playing God
Playing God

Don’t give up,
For this is the time it washes up at your feet
Swiftly withdraw and run
Before their takeover is complete

Make your voices heard and refuse
To mass consume ’cause they told you to
No wonder why you feel so confused
When all you got is their point of view

Their point of view…

You’re taken by the tide
I’m taken by the tide
We’re taken by the tide
