Changes



Gather up the pieces of the day

Pushed into the dark and locked away

I fear I’m repeating my mistakes

But I can’t stay

Can’t stay the same


Might take days

Might take ages

You need patience

To make peace with change


No can’t stay the same

No can’t stay the same


Gathered myself up to meet the day

Pulled out from the dark what I put away

I think I’m getting free of my mistakes

If I don’t break

I’ll break away


Might take days

Might take ages

You need patience

To make peace with change


No can’t stay the same

No can’t stay the same


No can’t stay the same

No can’t stay the same

No can’t stay the same

No can’t stay the same

Where Attention Goes (w/ Jack in Water)

Once in June Dan explained to me a rhyme that i could use 
To reinforce the undivided love I promise on to you and it was simply 
Where attention goes, neural firing flows and neural connection grows 

So to you I dedicate my attention 
In the hope that it fills you with the energy to take on this world 
Where attention goes, neural firing flows and neural connection grows 

There will be no energy wasted on shame 
The only exchange is the fruit of integration 
So we avoid rigid or chaotic frustration 
Where attention goes, neural firing flows and neural connection grows

Too Many People

VERSE
Cm
He thinks the world's on the edge of collapse
F
Tipping over, no way back

Over population is dragging us down
The dice is loaded, and the deck is stacked

        G
The problem is clear to see

CHORUS
Cm
Too many people, the time has come to reset
F
Too many people, and they're not an asset
Cm
Too many people, that the world can't support
F                             Gm
Too many people, but he has means to resort...

INSTRUMENTAL - acoustic guitar solo

VERSE
With diseases and vaccinations
He can control world population

The food supply is his primary aim
Buying land and making marginal gains

He can do whatever he please

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL - acoustic guitar solo

BRIDGE
Inventions of nature that he wants to patent
His goals are click and his aims are blatant

Collecting the seeds and building stocks
He has control over the lot

BRIDGE
But there's one seed that
We should dread

The one that's taken root inside
Bill Gate's head

CHORUS

You're A Masterpiece

Everyday’s an opportunity to create a living masterpiece
The biggest thing that hold us back is the fear of what other people think
Your most authentic self’s available to you every day and everywhere that you meet your feet
Cuz when we’re present and we’re grounded and we’re mindful
That’s when life gets really sweet

Because we’ve all got the chance to be the best versions of ourselves
And we can learn to harness all the gifts we’ve each got to express
You’re enough just because you are
And everything you need is inside of you
Your inner capabilities are absolutely extraordinary

Baby you’re a work of art
The artist is inside your heart
Your body is the canvas
And you’re mind is the paint
Once you can see the picture you can paint it for the world to see

Because we’ve all got the chance to be the best versions of ourselves
And we can learn to harness all the gifts we’ve each got to express
You’re enough just because you are
And everything you need is inside of you
Your inner capabilities are absolutely extraordinary

Baby you’re a work of art
The artist is inside your heart
Your body is the canvas
And you’re mind is the paint
So paint the picture that you want the world to see

No Guarantee

VERSE
C                                           F                   C
You can do all the drugs on God's Green Earth
C                                           F              C
Meet a purple lady, see the Multiverse
Am                                           F                 C
Travel to the darkest parts of your own mind
                       F                          G               C
But there's no guarantee you'll get back to God

VERSE
You can experience the world as a carnival
Take delight in nature and the animals
Wonder in awe at the power of it all
But it might not take you closer to God

Can we change without pain?

130 BPM

VERSE
             A                G                     D
Do you question the world, we're living in?
            A      G          D
When going out, is giving in
G                           Bm
Do you feel we're one?
G                          D
Or that you're the only one
G                     A                   D
And can we change without pain?

VERSE
Economists know, have all control
They buy and sell, our very souls
In a world in a madness
It's strange to be sane
Can we change without pain?

MIDDLE
Am                                    Em
Do you condone these changes?

(Original is Capo 7th)

Leave it alone
Once you get the message
Hang up the phone

To Make You Smile

VERSE
G                   Em
I worked for years
C               G
Trying to be
Em                     C
The woman that I know you
F#/D               G
Wanted me to be

VERSE
We were so different
You and I
We didn't always see
Eye to eye

CHORUS
C                       Em            G       F#/D                  Em 
I spent my whole life trying to get the world to laugh
 C                  Em               F#/D                     G 
I'd have given it all up, just to make you smile

VERSE
I owe you much
Never forget
I'll be forever
In your debt

I prayed perhaps
That you were proud
Even though you never
Said it out loud

CHORUS
I spent my whole life trying to get the world to laugh
I'd have given it all up, just to make you smile

MIDDLE
Am                                Em             F               C
There must have been lessons that we had to learn
Am                           G              F        G
But whatever they were I'm not sure yet

Time and perspective will answer them all
But wish I'd known at the outset

VERSE
Wherever you are
I wish you well
  

CHORUS

I spent my whole life trying to get the world to laugh
I'd have given it all up, just to make you smile

A Hose Through Which Love Flows

INTRO
Am I validated feelings
Am I compassion incarnate
Or the darkest of the answers
Swinging wildly at the plate

Am I doomed to be forever
With the free will that I chose
Or am I a hose
Through which love flows

VERSE
Am
I'm an accumulation of consciousness
Dm
A wave before the sand
Em
An amalgamation of aspects
Am
At the limit of the land 

Am
I'm growing and collecting
Dm
Where attention goes
Em
And I'm a hose
Am
Through which love flows

VERSE
I'm chaos in the making
Or robust rigidity
Desperately adding layers
To fashion identity

I'm reflections of the light
An animal that knows
And I'm a hose
Through which love flows

VERSE
I'm a bundle of emotions
Each with their own name
Pretending individualism
All desperate for a frame

On the wheel of awareness
A whisper dressed clothes
And I'm a hose
Through which love flows

VERSE
I'm a preacher product to stand up
A prosecutor who won't fall
A politician in the alley
Answering mother nature's call

I'm a part of everyone
Poetry and prose
And I'm a hose
Through which love flows

VERSE
I'm a complex cacophony 
And a very simple chord
An aggressive sinner
And a spark of the Lord

Integrating hemispheres
The audience and the show
And I'm a hose
Through which love flows

VERSE
I'm the left side giving narration
I'm the right side reaching out
A problem-solving algorithm
Desperate to know what it's about

I'm the observer and the object
Ready to propose
And I'm a hose
Through which love flows

Mental pollution 
The ghosts are running the show

Detatchment is your power Refuse corporate rule They want the land, want the seed want the food Want the mind Owning things that they didn’t make Patenting nature

Sure would like to find out

Is there only what is and what not could be 
Is there any such thing as possibilities 
It’s fun not knowing what it’s all about 
But I sure would like to find out 

And what or where exactly is consciousness 
Any speculation makes the water muddy I guess 
It’s fun not knowing what it’s all about 
But I sure would like to find out 

Every flap of a butterflies wing 
Is both an answer and a question 
That looks into the nature of everything 
There’s an equal mix of tragedy and beauty stored 

In every moment I’m alive how could I ever be bored 
It’s fun not knowing what it’s all about 
But I sure would like to find out 
I’d really really like to find out 
Before I die I’d like to find out

Unclench

84 BPM Capo 6th

VERSE
D                       Asus         
Our bodies grow around the tension
           Em            A7
We take on its form

Becoming whatever it is we imagine

Unclench
Don't be the block
The door will open for you
All you have to do is knock

VERSE
Practicing techniques
To bring the best out of ourselves
But all the patches do is build a barrier

Pressure in the jaw and body
Build up over time
Disconnecting us from ourselves

BRIDGE
Reach for a pill
We're making ourselves ill

CHORUS
              G
Unclench
D/F#
Let it flow
Em
You are already perfect
D/F#
If you let yourself know

Unclench
Don't be the block
The door will open for you
All you have to do is knock

Unclench
Let it be
Your voice is right there for you
All you have to do is talk

And just unclench

OUTRO
Let it go
Let it flow
Become everything you ever want to be

Do it all
Or nothing at all
It's all up to you

Inches Within

VERSE
I've been all around
Over land and sea
Endless places
Exotic countries

I sought out shamans
Countless masters
I got to nowhere
A hellevua lot faster

CHORUS
I've come so far
Just to begin
It's taken me so long to go
Inches within

VERSE
So much baggage
Excess weight
I know I carried them all
And the toll they take

I passed no devil
No crossroads
Here in the desert
You carry your own load

I followed rumours
I went on a hunch
To arrive at the oasis
For a liquid lunch

CHORUS

VERSE
The only proof I've been moving
Is that I left people behind
They're adamant I'm still here
But I'm long gone

Sinking into the silence
Dragged back by the voice
It's not crazy
If you have no choice

Intoxicated on cocktails
Laced with truth
And threw up old lies
At last let loose

CHORUS

CHORUS (refrain)
So much energy to go
Inches within

The longest journey
Is the one within

VERSE
I followed no signs
I got no map
Not even if I wanted to
Could I find my way back

I had no dramatic breakthroughs
Just a march through the plains
There could have been some colours 
Or a break from the pain

CHORUS

Live To Give

85 BPM / Key G

VIOLIN CHORUS (Arco)

VERSE (Pizz)
G
There's a golden rule
E/B
They don't teach in school
C
It's when you help some else
D
You end up helping yourself

G
And as you give what you can
C
To your fellow man
E/B
There's a reaction
C                                    D                                     
That's opposite and equal

VIOLIN CHORUS (Arco)

VERSE (Pizz)
G
Fear will disappear
E/B
When you're not scared to share
C
And when you live to give
D                                     
The world gives back to you

G
Now add in gratitude
C
As your gateway drug
E/B
To a life of awesomeness
D
And abundance
[I finish on a D with my melody to lead into yours but maybe it could be better in G perhaps. I welcome your feedback]

VIOLIN CHORUS (Arco) - I feel we need to add some development in the song. I suggest my team add orchestra in the background including Timpani to give a cruscendo. If you listen to the end of this song https://open.spotify.com/track/0npLGrGQ3yQI2O5gpcLyM3?si=b0aeffe94da4467f is an example of what it sounds like. It's Midi but sounds pretty realistic. Maybe you can tell the difference being a professional... but if you can add sections as well I think it will fool even you. You know this song... https://open.spotify.com/track/4zOfy9kqJlG0ZXvcaSh4gv?si=ff605958b6154d0b - Davide Rossi played the entire orchestra on his own multitracking the violin.

VIOLIN CHORUS (Arco) - And then I suggest repeating the chorus but building again by changing into a higher key and playing an accompanying part an octave higher. Or you can add some variations. Up to you. Let me know your thoughts.

Out of sheer necessity

The power of music
The science of sound
Untying potential
That's otherwise bound

The science of sound
The science of sound

VERSE
The sun spoke the word
The earth came into existence

And we all flowed
Down the path of least resistance

BRIDGE
Our ideas have traction
If we know that truth is action

CHORUS

MIDDLE
Am                                G
Grow as you're meant to be
Know all you're meant to see
Latent destiny

CHORUS


LYRICS:

THE SCIENCE OF SOUND

With perfect pitch
And linguistic abilities

Mathematical mind
Woken latent capabilities

Cos Dylan heard
Sounds of such complexity

That his mind grew
Out of sheer necessity

Processing power
Stimulation made

The power of music
The science of sound
Firing neurons
Or earthing to ground

The power of music
The science of sound
Untying potential
That's otherwise bound

The science of sound
The science of sound

The sun spoke the word
The earth came into existence

And we all flowed
Down the path of least resistance

Our ideas have traction
If we know that truth is action

The power of music
The science of sound
Firing neurons
Or earthing to ground

The power of music
The science of sound
Untying potential
That's otherwise bound

Grow as you're meant to be
Know all you're meant to see
Latent destiny

The power of music
The science of sound
Firing neurons
Or earthing to ground

The power of music
The science of sound
Untying potential
That's otherwise bound
