Track Name: Monkey Corner
Plant your roots and spread your seed
Fill the world with love not greed
What a strange reflection across your face and in your eyes
What a strange thought that you can deliver with surprise?

There be monkeys in this corner
Keep a chimney burning for ya

Fill me with your musical spirit
Let me hear it from the soul
Turn into a song that can touch with my heart
And make me feel like i belong

Play me your songs and play me your sounds
Let me know where we can be bound
To sounds of the love
That we feel for ever

There be monkeys in this corner
Keep a chimney burning for ya

Mountain birds sing there song
They are singing in celebration
And in their voice i hear a passion
And it will paralyse me where i stand

There be monkeys in this corner
Keep a chimney burning for ya

Play to me with your music
Play your music oh so loud
Play to me with your music
I can’t hear any sounds
Except the sounds of love
That we feel forever

To be true
One and all
To be true
There be monkeys in this corner
One and all
Keep a chimney burning for ya

We all have our place now
Round the table we’re sat
The fire sets a blaze
in a flume of ash
I’ll just sit here playing my songs
So that you can all keep carrying on
Don’t lose spirit, hold for a hope
Give in to your body, let it flow
Turn into a song that can touch with my heart
And make me feel like i belong
Play me your songs and play me your sounds
Let me know where we can be bound
To sounds of the love
That we feel for ever

To be true
There be monkeys in this corner
One and all
Keep a chimney burning for ya

One and all
Track Name: Ocean and Me
Take me to the top of the peak
As I start to fall let me feel its energy
Let me stroke the waves as I pass by
Then let them come crashing down behind my gallant strides

Watch me as I ride
As soar and glide
I ride this wave and fly
Oh I ride this wave and fly

Let me stand like a lion, let me feel like a king
Even if it’s only for some seconds I will cherish them
Let the whole of body, feel complete release
Power through the winds I’ll give it everything

Paddle through the force
Paddle through the crowds
Push on through the resistance
Let loose
Let your hair down
This place for stiffness

Watch me as I ride
As soar and glide
I ride this wave and fly
Oh I ride this wave and fly

Let me stand like a lion, let me feel like a king
Even if it’s only for some seconds I will cherish them
Let the whole of body, feel complete release
Power through the winds I’ll give it everything

Paddle through the force
Paddle through the crowds
Push on through the resistance
Let loose
Let your hair down
This place for stiffness
Track Name: Destruction
We borrow this land from our children
What will we have left when the rent is due
Burdened in our debt no resources when they’re all dead
Can’t we see this need for change

We are known for our destruction
Can’t we find a means to an end
Can’t we focus our destruction
And build a better place

We drain this land of it’s life blood
Fracking away one chip at a time
How greedy can the man get wreaking havoc on a wilderness
When nothings left what will you do?

We are known for our destruction
Can’t we find a means to an end
Can’t we focus our destruction
And build a better place

Poisoned lands poison promises poison up my mind

We are known for our destruction
Can’t we find a means to an end
Can’t we focus our destruction
And build a better place
Track Name: Don't Need Sleep
I’ll be sitting here, while you are sleeping
I’ll be sitting here, while you are sleeping
Don’t give me your wine, and I’ll be fine
I’ll be sitting here, while you are sleeping

I don’t need no sleep, I’m gunna fight it
I don’t need no sleep, I’m gunna fight it
I am kinda tired, but at the night I run wild
I don’t need no sleep, I’m gunna fight it

I’ll be standing tall, while you’re all curled in a ball
I’ll be standing tall, while you’re all curled in a ball
And when the morning comes, I cannot function
I’ll be standing tall, while you’re all curled in a ball

I don’t need no sleep, I’m gunna fight it
I don’t need no sleep, I’m gunna fight it
I am kinda tired, but at the night I run wild
I don’t need no sleep, I’m gunna fight it
Track Name: Sight From Inside
Feet down run around been around the whole town
Don’t know how to stop only the meaning to go
Running up and down the valley straight through the alley
Shifting left and right now my head is spinning round and round.

In the tree in front the sea, you wanna see what i can see
Atop the hill a shady chill welcomed on a hot summers day
Take a flip-flop walk down to the boardwalk
A hip-scotch on the rocks each step I step, I take with grace

I’m becoming someone else
All of this will shape me, shape me for the best
Nothing can take this away from me, nothing can break a spirit that’s free
I’m becoming someone else

I’ve got direction from inside though I can’t explain
And I’m not gunna try and hide
Every time I listen my life starts to glisten
Lighting up my life and brightening up my destiny

I’m becoming someone else
All of this will shape me, shape me for the best
Nothing can take this away from me, nothing can break a spirit that’s free
I’m becoming someone else

My heart beat beat beat is strong
Revealing the way like an inner guidance system
But My heart beat beat beat is strong
It’s sounding so loud I can’t help but listen
Track Name: Thousand Faces
Treat it right and keep it strong
I’m a transistor of love
Someone’s got to break the chain of hate and forgive

Gotta shift your brain away from insane
Ignorance is bliss against a face of distress
I’m not gunna let this whole ship burn to the ground.

It can change all ways every day
With emotional feelings on parade
Keep it in my mind so strong
That not each day will be as easy as the last one
And I’ll keep doing what I’m doing
Coz I love to feel this way
When I keep myself in this state
I open up a million opportunities

I got a thousand faces and I’ll keep a smile especially for you
But when the weather hits me I sometimes can’t pull through
And then a fool came along and try to make it all go wrong
But I will not change my faces
For you

You can’t stop what I create, I’ll never give my focus to hate
All of this of which I cannot see will only just empower me
Don’t naysay what you do not know
There’s countless reasons not to do anything
none of them by my side it’s gunna bring the positive side to life

I got a thousand faces and I’ll keep a smile especially for you
But when the weather hits me I sometimes can’t pull through
And then a fool came along and try to make it all go wrong
But I will not change my faces
For you

All of our biggest problems, are all made in our heads
Keep it out keep on concentrating ,it doesn’t really exist
Ignore all of the things that, make you sad
Ignore all the things that you ,can’t have
just keep one thought in ,your head
Any amount of light can brighten, up darkness

I got a thousand faces and I’ll keep a smile especially for you
But when the weather hits me I sometimes can’t pull through
And then a fool came along and try to make it all go wrong
But I will not change my faces
For you
