You don’t talk to me It is a drag I’m not here to entertain you All day long I don’t know what’s to come But one thing’s for sure I gotta leave this place For good There’s one thing to cool me down Eternal cycle goes around The old is dyin’ for something new Seize the light that’s shining through A symbol gleamin’ like a creed The breeze is carrying it’s seeds It stands for reinvention too My dandelion tattoo My heart’s been sendin’ signals Constantly I’ve been sick of this rat race For so very long It feels queasy But there’s no other way I gotta set my sails Off to new shores

Around the corner you will go And fifteen thousand doors will show You will slide down a wicked lane Of insecurity And a basket full of pain Wildly shakin’ are your value’s shapes Your judgement of today is tomorrow a mistake Have you been the master, the master of your fate Lift it up from the floor Always goin’ straight A big car’s not what I want I got my coffee and my chocolate goin’ on A big house is not what I need I got my tunes I got my spirit flowin’ on Down the stairwell you will go And fifteen thousand bolts will glow No one takes your shoulder’s weight Take it, lift it, don’t berate What is it that you’re livin’ for What lets you float above the floor What is it that takes you ahead It’s not wealth, it’s your joy instead

Oceanride 05:33
Take him On an oceanride Solicitude Is left behind You make peace With all of your sins Before you’ll erase them Your arms will turn into wings Time’s what I’m chasin’ Till the end Everlasting inner peace Transcendin’ on Reachin’ For the consciousness Leavin’ mantles Aspirin’ bliss I treat you With sweet tenderness Fortune endows me The joy of recurring carress Time’s what I’m chasin’ It’s gonna be slow, gonna be slow I chase it down the stream It's what I'm chasin' It’s gonna be slow, gonna be slow I chase it ‘round the isle (repeat)
4.
Disclose your meaning Art of life I’m waiting for your blisterin’ sign No one traces your delight Till the final passage shines It’s devotion That keeps you on course Guiding lights Slowest motion Aligns with your source Of your mind’s inspiration In a wheel of Confusion of life Guiding lights You can lean on What never dies Let it blast your mind
5.
Imprisoned 03:50
Get out Dancin’ on the highway You’re free Follow me on this way It’s dark Don’t take away my black shades Take away The palisades Help me I can see the decay What has been Must fade away You’ll see I will find a way out Leave me Endless draggin’ torture We have waited Our lives were standing still We have acted Our wishes They will fulfill Our corrupted perception Will be given back Our free will’s imprisoned It will rise ahead Get up And push those doubts aside Your fears They’ll no longer hide You dig For your spine’s remains While I feel weary and in chains Self-delusion’s what you want That’s not here for me to stay I run and run and run To see the end Of disbelief and hesitation While we have waited Our lives were standing still While we have acted Our wishes began to fulfill
6.
I’m standin’ at this mountain’s feet Seek healing for my life’s deceit Along the path the ground is dead Weary my heart and every step The notions that I preconceived Are bound to shatter in the grief My chest feels loopholed by a gun My being blinded by the sun I let them go All destructive forces I and I alone I am enough With every step the weight declines Still in haze the bottom line Beside the ally now at length The blossoms flourish like my strength I gotta set up new beliefs And from above the birds can see That I’m no longer on the run Became a lover of the sun I’m embracing all enlightning forces

SXB 05:35
I wasted Some thousand hours Wasted I went on drinkin’ Out of the luscious seas Drinkin’ I’ll be Shielded by a force As long as you keep me company I’ll be guided by your hand As long as my feet will carry me I’ve been sleeping During these precious hours Sleeping I followed wanderin’ through These shimmering fields Wanderin’
8.
When you wonder How to go through the fire If you asked me I’d say I beg ya Never quit to aspire Becoming more than you are You thought it was truth but it’s all an illusion Reinvention grows out of confusion In the town of abidance I was born without a spine Moving towards the sun My spark began to shine In the field of tediousness I could not find my flower Now trace me to the village of serenity Within the hour For ages You’ve been exposed to a liar The course of time will show you How to Straighten and phrase your desire Unveilin’ what you are

Purple Beach 03:13
The seagull’s flyin’ past the clouds The voices from within cry loud I don’t know what was flyin’ by Too mellow is my state of mind I’m lost in total entity My enquirin’ mind It sets me free The eagle’s flyin’ past the scene Perceivin’ what you’ve never seen
10.
Anticipation 05:40
Where’s the feelin’ That takes me higher Where’s the fever Supposed to vary my mind Watch the stars in the sky The fume is risin’ up high I’ve been excluded till now So unfold, my sensational ride I’ve been waitin’ For chills, so sweet and sublime I’m still waitin’ For getting closer to you
