Track Name: Holy Holy
Oh holy sun
something wonderful now this way comes
oh holy moon
something sweet is coming round so soon
oh holy day
something good is coming round the way
and oh holy night
gratitude for every breath of life

breath of life
breath of life

gratitude unites

said oh holy sun
and oh holy life
and oh holy marama
and oh holy night

holy night

oh holy day
something good is coming round the way
and oh holy night
gratitude for every breath of life

you holy sun
blessed by your rays
and roll, you old ocean
awesome your waves
and oh you holy moon
oh you keep us in tune
and oh you holy life

blessed are my days and nights
Track Name: Freedom Train
ride that train
ride that train
through the night

there's a freedom train comin', so i'm drummin' and strummin' to keep from bummin' around with my face to the ground, and the sound gives me wings, and i can fly when i sing, and the beat keeps me up in the air...

listen, this train is not for profit, and these tickets are not for sale, but hop on board good prophet, and tell us all your tale

i'm strummin' with hummingbirds, my nectar is the spoken word, my flower is the universe, my power is to break the curse of a mind that wants to see the worst first before the best gets a chance to fill my chest with hope

so boogie down to the track, take a load off your back, liberate from the invisible chains, cuz freedom is a creature in each and everybody and that creature should never be tamed

a long and winding road brought me to the station,
i leave behind my load, there's nothing here worth taking,
hear that whistle blow, feel the earth beneath me shaking,

the freedom train is comin' round the bend

...
(Redwood) oh great spirit, i surrender, to these holy embers burning within...
so many lifetimes stuck in prisons of the mind, but then we see we are the jailor, we don't have to seek far to find,
set your rivers free, cuz rivers wanna flow to the sea,
witness with compassion to complete the release, the crystal rivers of your tears bring life to the ravines,
pain may not be chosen,
but suffering is but a state of mind,
when you let your walls fall, you're a part of it all,
when you hop on that train and ride

so ride that train
ride that train
through the night

you can never be late and you're always on time
get on when you're ready and enjoy the ride on the freedom train

freedom train

cuz there ain't no tickets, no fees or fines, you can ride it all day, you can ride it all night, on the freedom train

freedom train
Track Name: Always Leaving
and i dont know why,
i'm always leaving,
i guess that just must be what's needed,
and you know it's not,
it's not always easy,
and my heart is always bleeding

but i still believe in us
i still believe and trust
i still believe and trust

and i don't know why
i'm always going
but i know i must keep going,
walls are fallin'
and the river's flowin'
everything in perfect motion
perfect motion now

i know that every step i take
no matter how far way
is a step that i must take
to lead me back to you
and every step i take
no matter how far away
is a step that i must take
to led me back to you
to you
to you

this howlin's for you
i'm howlin' for you
i'm howlin' for you
it's always for you

oh halleluh
halleluh
halleluh


and i believe this road
that i'm travelin' on
is the road
that will lead me to your door
and i believe this road
that i'm travelin' on
is the road
that will lead me back home

this road
is long and winding
but i will walk
to find
the place where all our golden dreams will align
this road
is long and winding
but we will find
that place
where all our golden dreams will align

and i believe this road
that i'm travelin' on
is the road
that will lead me to your door
and i believe this road
that i'm travelin' on
is the road
that will lead me back home
Track Name: Harwoods Funk
take your medicine, boy
light a small fire
wait for your friends to come home
speak with the birds

take your medicine, boy
your eyes open wider
wear only the rainbow cloak
speak with the earth

speak with the earth

take your medicine, boy
stay for a while
something will open the door
and lead you to her

take your medicine, boy
stay with the fire
see all the colors explode
sleep on the earth

sleep on the earth

this is medicine for us all

take your medicine, boy
stay with the fire
there is so much to explore
speak without words

speak without words
Track Name: Yemmaya
and i've loved you
every lifetime
since this earth has been blue
and in this life
or the next one
i will be there with you

call me crazy
maybe lovesick
or maybe just a fool
but this howlin'
from the mountains
is always for you

for you
yemmaya
true and wild
how i lose the miles
in your two green eyes

and i am but a standing wave
how i move with you in fluid ways
how we rise and fall right into place
and we crash and break just to be made

be made anew
anew

oh the soul is an ocean
body is a wave
let's break together tonight

let's break together tonight
as we awake together tonight

...

the tides of the moon
hurricanes and monsoons
everything is a'movin' and we move with it too
when we break together tonight
we awake together tonight

ashes to dust
molecules to molecules
water to water
and i turn back into you
when we break together tonight
we awake together tonight

let's awake together tonight

let's awake together tonight
let's shake the tethers and ties
let's take these feathers and fly

over the moon
