Track Name: See it the Same
We see the same, in praise and blame
Happiness and distress, your grandma and your mistress
The humble sage, with equal vision
A freezer and a heater, a dog and a dog eater

See it the same, See it the same, See it the same

Who has the vision, to see inside the prison
The young and old, stone or gold
The one that sees, friends and enemies
The rich or poor, in a chair or on the floor

See it the same, See it the same, See it the same

See as they are, near or far
Happiness goes inside, you have nothing to hide
It's the danger, desire and anger
With equal mind, see what you will find

See it the same, See it the same, See it the same
Track Name: The Sun
Everyone is gonna find their way back home
Everyone is gonna find their way back home
Everyone is gonna find their way back home
Everyone is gonna find their way back home

I woke up today and saw the sun
Shining on me, shining on you
I woke up today and saw the sun
It was shining for me and it's shining for you
Give away your love for free
There you go, there you go, there you go
Yeah there you go, there you go

I woke up today and saw the sun
Shining on me, shining on you
I woke up today and saw the sun
It was shining for me and it's shining for you
Give away your love for free
There you go, there you go, there you go
Yeah there you go, there you go

Everyone is gonna find their way back home
Everyone is gonna find their way back home
Everyone is gonna find their way back home
Everyone is gonna find their way back home

I woke up today and saw the sun
Shining on me, shining on you
I woke up today and saw the sun
It was shining for me and it's shining for you
Give away your love for free
There you go, there you go, there you go
Yeah there you go, there you go
Track Name: Killing Me
This is not revealed in plain sight
But you are not able to hide
You destroy and fake what you believe
We can see this atrocity

You are the king of all that you survey
They are the pawns inside of your domain
What goes around is coming back again
All of this fun to satisfy the tongue

Your plans are damned
Head in the sand
Let's take a stand
Meet my demands
This life of hate
On your bloody plate
This unclean state
Now hell can't wait

It hurts to see, it hurts to see
This killing spree, this killing spree
Oh why do we, why do we
We'll pay the fee, we'll pay the fee
Please let them be, let them be
Please set them free, set them free
It's killing me, killing me
It's killing me, killing me
Track Name: Birth and Death
Because I didn't use my brain
I left that place, I was insane
I fell from the sky inside the rain
Eaten by people as a grain, as a grain

I found myself here

I took birth as a little baby boy
I sucked my thumb and I played with all my toys
But I couldn't hear above the noise
And I wasn't like the other boys, the other boys

Because I wanted to know

So I tried to find my little way
And I knew that I didn't wanna stay
Something I learned the other day
God, Krishna is the only way, the only way

Now I have no fear

I found myself here
Because I wanted to know
Now I have no fear
Because I know where I'll go
Track Name: I Love You
I love you because you gave me a cause
Destroyed all my flaws, I love you because

You let me follow you back home
You let me follow you back home
You let me follow you back home
Yeah, you let me follow you back home

I love you because you pried my eyes wide
Destroyed all my pride, I love you because

You let me follow you back home
You let me follow you back home
You let me follow you back home
Yeah, you let me follow you back home

Get up and let's go for the gold
It's time to do what you're told
Come in and get out of the cold
Be the one to shatter the mold

I love you because you told me the truth
And showed me the proof, I love you because

You let me follow you back home
You let me follow you back home
You let me follow you back home
Yeah, you let me follow you back home

It's time to start having fun
In quality let's become one
Now I have nowhere to run
Eternal life has begun
Track Name: Wake Up
Wake up all you sleeping seeds and sprout
Come out of your shell
In tamas(ignorance) five uncontrollable senses
Is a path to hell

When you become honest with yourself
Calling out for help
That sound emanating from your core
And you're wanting more

Isn't it nice to know that when
This body's old, that you don't have to worry what to do

Just try, find the strength to climb on up
Come out of your hole
Try to find the truth in serving God
With body, mind, and soul

Isn't it nice to know that when
This body's old, that you don't have to worry what to do
You will get one more
Yeah, there's another one in store
And you can try another time
But for now you're blind
Track Name: Supersoul
I'm right here and you're here with me
I am here and you're with me

But, I never knew the way you made me
Hold out your hand, demand to save me
I feel your love, the love so crazy
And I need that rush, a crush so hazy

I'm right here and you're here with me
I am here and you're with me

But, you are so close yet so far away
If I beg you, won't you come to stay
I eat the fruit and do it my way
You sit and view us two, it's ok

I'm right here and you're here with me
I am here and you're with me

But, I always knew one day I'd find you
Don't shut your eyes, that light won't blind you
The time has come, for some, I'm here to remind you
So thick and sick, it's a trick that binds you
Track Name: Wasting Away
It's ok, you'll make it one day
Work all week and church on Sunday
It's ok, I'm here to say
You'll make it, make it

You can't fake it, he won't take it
Get'n baked and get'n naked
It's ok, I'm here to say
You'll make it, make it

Money roll'n, money rake it
Pile it on 'till you can't take it
It's ok, I'm here to say
You'll make it, make it

When you rot and hit rock bottom
Left alone and all forgotten
It's ok, I'm here to say
You'll make it, make it, make it, make it

Heavy times, they sure are comin'
You won't change, you might be bummin'
Not ok, I'm here to say
You're wastin', wastin', wasting away
Track Name: The Cure
We come from two different worlds
And I know that you want me to see yours
A boy looking for a girl
And I know that you want me to be yours

Let's wait maybe time will tell
I don't know and I would like to be sure
I've spent my time in hell
I've been there and I'm looking for the cure

Looking for the cure, yeah I'm looking for the cure
Why aren't you looking for the cure

You push and pull at my nerves
I deserve the place I was before
Deer in the road I must swerve
Cut the curve and head to the seashore

Lady ahead red light on
She's a con and she's looking to score
I've spent my time all wrong
I've been there and I'm looking for the cure

Looking for the cure, yeah I'm looking for the cure
Why aren't you looking for the cure

Looking for the cure
Looking for the cure
Yeah, I'm looking for the cure
Yeah, I'm looking for the cure
Why aren't you looking for the cure
