No more rain clouds of thick unhappiness No more ego swells causing me distress I want to thank the universe for today I want to thank that sexy girl for looking my way I want to thank that little bird for singing her song I want to thank you for giving me lovin' all night long It's got me feeling so high today... No more quicksand pits pulling these feet down No more hurricanes spinning me around I want to thank that yellow sun for choosing to rise I want to thank you for that look of love in your eyes I want to thank that leafy green for making me strong I want to thank you for giving me lovin' all night long It's got me feeling so high today... So one day, a sweet little gypsy I happen to be fond of Called me on the telephone to say "Have a beautiful now (3x)" So now, I take it as it comes And even as the rain drums upon the roof of this house I say "Wow, have a beautiful now (3x)" It's got me feeling so high today... So now, have a beautiful now

If the road to truth passes me through hell I will seek, I will seek it still Should this thirst for truth leave my cup unfilled I will seek, I will seek it still I am a sojourner on my return to light I am not blind, though I lack full sight And I am not lost, though there's much to find I am a ponderer, focused upon Most High When I feel alone, I look around And I see you right there by my side If the road to truth passes me through hell I will seek, I will seek it still Should this thirst for truth leave my cup unfilled I will seek, I will seek it still I am a follower of nothing but my heart I have no fear, for I seek the source The whole of which I am a part I am a conqueror, focused upon my quest I'll run this race until my legs Run out of strength, and then I shall rest For to place my feet on holy ground Is the task to which my soul is bound If the road to truth passes me through hell I will seek, I will seek it still I will seek, I will seek it still

Heard a man say, "Is that a pock on your brow?" "Where'd you get that pock on your brow?" I said, "A sickness struck my house" "Then perseverance pulled me out" And still I see you, Maya, I see I see you, Maya now, I do And still I see you, Maya, I see I see you, Maya now Heard a man say, "Is that a hunch in your back?" "Where'd you get that hunch in your back?" I said, "This ego struck me down" "Then the Most High came around" And still I see you, Maya, I see I see you, Maya now, I do And still I see you, Maya, I see I see you, Maya now, it's true And though I run, I run, I run You never let me be And though I run, I run, I run You're still a part of me I only want to hold you (Maya, Maya) I never want to scold you (Maya, Maya) For that would just embolden you to more crime, more crime Remember what I told you (Maya, Maya) This path will only mold you (Maya, Maya) And like a piece of gold you will be refined, refined

Oh, what sights and sounds How my joy abounds in this place tonight The universe is too beautiful I can't help but cry A source of light my body's eyes can't perceive So I shut them tight and the blinding light Envelopes me When fear is nowhere to be found When my body is under the ground When my spirit is walking around I was all alone, it was dark and cold I was naked and weak And you spoke to me so poignantly I just had to weep You said, "Look around" "Not much longer now, 'til you're with me here" Then a city of light burst into my sight And then disappeared When fear is nowhere to be found When my body is under the ground When my spirit is walking around The dark will come again But its days are numbered light a prison door Heaven is all around But it's patiently waiting for something pure Heaven is all around...

We've all felt the weight of the world coming down upon our shoulders We've all felt the growing pains as our generation gets older I think it's time we took all this suffering and turned it to something great So look inside, we are the change for which we wait Brother, sister, I see your despair Look inside, there's a calm center in there Brother, I see your despair Mother, father, I feel your despair Look inside, there's a calm center in there Mother, I feel your despair It's that impending sense of doom That you feel most afternoons It doesn't have to resume I've been there, I know what it's like to wake up And feel stuck, like a prison replaced your room Oh, but it goes deeper than that, try to run but you can't Look for love just to feel okay Or drink the pain away, but it's right back the very next day Oh, don't give up, take a breath, sit with it I know, you've been desperately missing it That's the high that's been there this whole time Brother, sister, I see your despair Look inside, there's a calm center in there Brother, I see your despair Mother, father, I feel your despair Look inside, there's a calm center in there Mother, I feel your despair Eye of the hurricane, peace in the chaos Right here where we meditate, piercing the layers

I hope we're together when the world ends I hope we're together when the world ends Mother's crying, says she's had enough Children left her, gave her back no love I hope we're together when the earth shakes For if I had to stand alone, I'd surely fall But I won't, I won't be afraid, no I'll stand tall, so tall I hope we're together when the seas rage For if I had to swim alone, I'd surely drown So let's hold on to each other And not sink down I hope we're together when the world ends I hope we're together when the world ends Mother's crying, says she's had enough Children left her, gave her back no love I hope we're together when the sky falls For if I had to watch alone, I might despair But I'll smile in sweet surrender, because you're there I hope we're together in the next life For if I saw your wandering soul, I'd surely know That love transcends all boundaries So let love glow, ya gotta let it glow We can be together in the next life We can be together in the next life Mother's smiling, says she's got it all Children playing, fills her up with love Yeah, love, love, love Won't you fill me up with love, love, love

Rise up, my king Gaze upon your reflection, feel love deep within Peace this shall bring Let the fear disappear as the only real sin Bask in this grace Let the sun warm your face and melt your disgrace The light in you is the same as the light of the sun For we and the Father are one You and I are made of light... Give thanks, my queen Let the joy permeate all the space between Have you not seen What a bounty comes forth when we realize the dream? Bathe in this stream Let the warmth of the water make your spirit clean The life in you is the same as the life of this earth The Mother will show you your worth You and I are made of light... God is every breath, and breath is life And life is love, and love is light If you and I are made of light Then you and I must be gods So in your deepest darkest night Let there be light And when you think you've lost your sight Let there be light 'Cause there's a light in your eyes like two suns Shine for me, I swear the morning will be bright

Ain't no devil except for the one in the mirror Ain't no hell below, just the one right here And if the weight of your sin takes its toll Feels like swimming in a ballroom gown Do you want to broken, or want to be whole Next time around, next time around? Ain't no maker except for the one in the mirror Ain't no heaven above, just the one right here And if the image of the evening stars Gives a feeling like you're sick for home Just remember it's not that far And you're not alone, you are not alone If you've been told Somebody else is gonna save your soul Or damn it straight to hell When you pass through that final door To find that nobody's keeping score It's you You're the one you've been waiting for It's you You're the one you've been waiting for
