VERSE 1: Take me home To where all the flowers grow Fields and plains Under the sunlight’s glow A breeze of wind Brushing against my skin Chirping birds Flying into the wind CHORUS 1: Will I ever see the day Tranquil as the sea at bay Lie upon the softest hay Will I ever have a say VERSE 2: Ashes fall off The wounded forest trees Burning oil Seeping into the leaves Shifts the earth Under my static feet Hungry lives Give in to their defeat CHORUS 2: Will I ever see the day Tranquil as the sea at bay Lie upon the softest hay Will I ever have a say BRIDGE: Pull out from the race for power You are not god Pull out the plugs from your machines They poison your land CHORUS 3: Will I ever see the day Tranquil as the sea at bay Lie upon the softest hay Will I ever have a say

Heart's Gold 03:46
VERSE 1: He was petrified To see his life divide At that time it seemed That he was lost and in a bind Two conflicting ways To scrutinize his heart One of mindly cries The other one of soul desire CHORUS 1: Why won’t he move out of this shrine To the wilder side of the fence Why won’t the heavens send him a sign So that he’ll stop this mindless trial Why won’t he dare make a move VERSE 2: He was excitedly Relieved to slowly sway Towards his inner needs The one adhered but not preferred Surely down the line As life begins to clear Took the road he did Between the two He plummet through CHORUS 2: Why won’t he move out of this shrine To the wilder side of the fence Why won’t the heavens send him a sign So that he’ll stop this mindless trial Why won’t he just take a blind step Passion diminishes together with time Why won’t he dare make the move forward Toward his heart’s gold BRIDGE: Nothing compares the rush of enlightenment As he climbs over the walls of unwillingness He sees the light it shines through the cracks As he digs into the mines of Devotion, anger Passion, hunger For him to bear, what he was told The secret to, his heart’s gold

Deaf Ears 05:35
VERSE 1: Listening to your words of empathy Trying to convince reality CHORUS 1: Move along the path you tread on Left behind by minds that’ve moved on Why do we still follow blindly now VERSE 2: Building up a base with sticks and stones Trying to convince the mind and soul CHORUS 2: Move along the path you tread on Left behind by minds that’ve moved on Why do we still follow blindly As for me I’ll keep on moving on BRIDGE 1: With my head held high I walk on to the stage To conjure my lines They’ve fallen on to deaf ears With my head held high I walk on to the stage To conjure my lines They’ve fallen on to deaf ears BRIDGE 2: I will not fail To go through With this intention To break away
