Yellow 05:50
Yellow, I’m alive in your eyes, in your smile Yellow, My surprise for the very first time, in your smile Tell me all you know I would never miss the show If you’d stand in my shoes, you would know what to do

Dreams are worth defending Love is never ending Moments left to bending time Open every doorway It matters not what comes your way Only to enjoy the ride The stars are aligned Your friends by your side Your head in the clouds Carry heaven on your brow Trust in where your heart pulls Remember there are no rules Never let their judgments bind When you sail with your soul You shine let the love rule Like a lantern on a hill The stars are aligned Your friends by your side Your head in the clouds Carry heaven on your brow There’s nothing left to doubt Jump right in Climb right out I’ll see you on a hill With your lantern shining still I’ll you follow you tonight Through the dark To the light I’ll follow you tonight through the dark To the light Dreams are worth defending Love is never ending Moments left to bending time Open every doorway It matters not what comes your way Only to enjoy the ride The stars are aligned Your friends by your side Your head in the clouds Carry heaven on your brow There’s nothing left to doubt Jump right in Climb right out I’ll see you on a hill With your lantern Shining still We’ll follow you tonight Through the dark To the Light

Velocity 04:20
What is that sound? Oh, I’ve been slipping down a deep dive, reclined. Rain in the heart, let in a miracle. You’ll see…now I’ll start. Pieces, pieces, the child in pieces. Mend them, mend them, Forgive and start. Return to the love that you come from Return, return to what’s inside. And you’ll get away from the bad days. Oh come with me to life. Tremors in life Oh, been tripping down a deep dive inside. Rain in the heart, I reached out for someone else to save me..but no one saved me. Pieces, pieces, the child in pieces. Mend them, mend them, Forgive and start. Return to the love that you come from Return, return to what’s inside. And you’ll get away from the sleeping terrified. Oh come with me to life. Return to the love that you come from. Return, return to what’s inside. And you’ll get away from the bad days, Oh come with me to life. Return with me to life.

West Coast 05:39
Us kids on the west coast have visions bold, Those kids on the east coast have wills of gold, The kids in the middle are building vast Put us all together to make it last Whatever it takes, We’re living to make things right We stand for the day when the sun shines down Upon a new land where everyone’s standing free and living for love, peace, and harmony You come from the forest, and from the sea You traversed the desert to be free You live for the beauty in your mind And you bring life to everything you find Whatever it takes We’re running to make things shine We’re building a team of kindred souls We’re bringing a dawn, connection across the planet that everyone’s on to treat Her right And love will guide the way Earth cries out loud, but not in vain It’s time, beginning today Trust in your will and all of your grace You come from the cities and from the plains You can’t stand for things to stay the same You live far beyond survival needs You don’t feel alive without your dreams. Whatever it takes We’re living to make things right We stand for the day when the sun shines down upon a new land where everyone’s standing free and living for love, peace and harmony And love will guide the way Earth cries out loud, but not in vain It’s time, beginning today Trust in your will and all of your grace Hearts beat as one across the land Find all the others, take a stand You come from the cities and from the plains, You can’t stand for things to stay the same You live for the beauty in your mind You bring life to everything you find You come from the forest from the sea You traversed the desert to be free You live far beyond survival needs And you don’t feel alive without your dreams

Beyond wishes, dreams and fantasies, you are here with me Burst the bubbles Dissolve the mist You have never lived a life like this I used to think these hopes were harmless I used to mold you to my themes I lived in pure fantasizing Now I know that “here” is king I compared you always to my version But you are more than that Take this time Stop the boxes Be the answer Wishing “nowhere” I am here There’s no tomorrow Don’t hope for tomorrow Cause there’s nothing better than the moment here Life is here and ever unfolding Burning down veneers And there’s no time and no need for fears Even when you fit my vision Even when you are my prince A comparison stands between us A peripheral emptiness You are more than a handful More than I could dream We can’t help but make our stories But it’s more than what it seems Take this time Stop the boxes Be the answer Wishing “nowhere” I am here There’s no tomorrow Don’t hope for tomorrow Cause there’s nothing better than the moment here Remind me where I really am And the starry glaze will turn to diamonds And this is what we have The lovebirds we thought we were Explodes into oceans To suns and moons and wind Here and now with you my darling You are my greatest friend Here and now with you my darling You are my greatest friend Life is here and ever unfolding Burning down veneers And there’s no time and no need for fears Here and now with you my darling You are my greatest friend Here and now with you my darling You are my greatest friend Take this time Stop the Boxes Be the answer Wishing “nowhere” I am here There’s no tomorrow Don’t hope for tomorrow Cause there’s nothing better than the moment here Cause there’s nothing better than the moment here

Dangerous Terrifying You imagine you were born of innocence See you come, they wanna run Still they’re magnetized to the vortex of energy Even still, childlike thrills guide you to adventures wild Listen to your overview; there is something shattered, girl There is something like electric fences built between you There is something like electric fences built between you There is something like electric fences built between you You and the world, It’s you against the world Tease don’t trust, Insist it’s lust, Never do you find a love Open up through the pain For there is much in life for you, my friend Leave behind the tortured mind There is something shattered, girl Leave behind the tortured mind There is something shattered, girl There is something like electric fences built between you There is something like electric fences built between you There is something like electric fences built between you You and the world, It’s you against the world There is something like electric fences built between you You and the world, It’s you against the world

Gaia 05:12
Gaia by David West and Containher Watch me sitting by her lovely, silver hair Watch her glow like anyone could fair My purpose in the world is suddenly alive Her purpose is To magnify Sitting by the world servicing the industries She is the lovely words And the enlightened breeze Many worlds to see Lifting through my eyes She asks me why, why I believe these lies? She came from the nothing. She will spark Awakening the start She flies by like a bird of fire Watch me change into a silver bird I fly across the sea ‘til I return to her My purpose in the world is suddenly alive Her purpose is to magnify La de da She will spark Awakening the start She flies by like a bird of fire She will spark Awakening the start She flies by like a bird of fire La de da

Starchitect 06:12
Day meets night My highest hopes When stars collide, each has a wish Wandering dreams are little seeds to light the path of home And when we lay these arms to rest, We reach the life of stars in flight We do the work We do it all Stars…the memory of one light I have seen miraculous things I’ve been to your golden webs across the horizon. Here. When the stars take flight tonight, Your highest hopes will soar And build the world how your heart dreams and we’ll all live amazing things We do the work We do it all Stars…the memory of one light I have seen miraculous things I’ve been to your confidence in building tomorrow I have seen the makings, The starchitects around me Touching night and bringing stars to life And when we lay these fears to rest We reach the life of stars in flight
