NIGHTLIGHTS

Under the Night lights

Under the Moons light

It warms my soul

Under the sky’s light

Under the stars light

It guides me home

 

Down the wishing well

Coins gleam be night the surface

Hopes and dreams should never hurt us

Time alone will tell

Good intentions and purpose

Love and light to guide us as we move

 

Over the oceans over

Over the mountains over

Over the islands over

Over our troubles over

 

Length of days fade to winter

Blue to grey, Gold to silver

Longing for a life simpler

Moving close, Moving inwards

As we move as we enter

As we brave stormy weather

 

INILLUSION

The rush, the plus, the minus the fuss
job loss, businesses and banks go bust
wealth of the many turns from gold to dust
buildings left derelict, barbed wire turns to rust
cause of the problem under the carpet is brushed
politicians judgement now we find hard to trust
and as the years fall onto us so wisdom also must
solutions to these problems can come solely from us.

Living in illusion x4

 

THIS APPLIES

This applies no matter who you are
no matter who or where in this wide world who or where you are
this applies no matter who you are
where you are in this world

foundation cultivate a pure heart
know yourself well, know who you are
first look close and then look from a far
start from beneath and then reach to the stars
show love for your sister and brother
take care of your mother and your father
practise the positive and you will prosper, truth
only love will concur
don’t get led astray by the money maker
don’t get lead astray by the war monger
stir clear of aggression keep out of danger
be wide, be wise, be kind , live longer
burn not a bridge over troubled water
respect the foreigner and the stranger
respect each others roots and culture
a real and conscious mind is superior

this applies no matter who you are
no matter who or where in this wide world who or where you are
this applies no matter who you are
where you are in this world

injustice peaks and the innocent suffer
strife creates hate and the youths turn sour
blood turns bad as the times get tougher
actions of the few make hell of our future
only we people can make things better
love between community’s , people come together
united together we have the power
see the bigger picture
you know the answer

this applies no matter who you are
no matter who or where in this wide world who or where you are
this applies no matter who you are
where you are in this world

 

BABYLON SKYS

Money is the god ina babylon sky’s
money its the god its the god
god ina babylon sky’s

serious times most people living blind
work the 9 to 5
never question this system
never ask why
the cost of living it a rise and rise
equal rights and justice we get denied
said, money its the god up ina babylon sky’s
money its the god up ina babylon sky
people never question this system and never ask why
said, money its the god up ina babylon sky’s

money is the god ina babylon sky’s
money its the god its the god
god ina babylon sky’s

a generation fueled into business schemes
manufactured and fabricated dreams
gambling addictions and pyramid schemes
blind eyes turned to the world poverty
mentally chained and un free
forcing the youth to compete
promoting aggression and greed , yes indeed

money is the god ina babylon sky’s
money its the god its the god
god ina babylon sky’s

 

YOU

Walking in a dream like state
threw streets and lanes so strange
a gentle breeze hits my face
spinning leafs autumn haze
your reflection on my eyes
your image in my mind
so hard to be away from you

you, you, missing you

remember the place where
are first embrace
so hard to be away from you

lost in this dream
too far away
so far away
from where i want to be

how i long to be right by your side

you, missing you

drifting alone amongst the moon and stars
so far, too far
from where i want to be

you, you, missing you

 

9 YEARS

9 years of war
soldiers don’t know what there fighting for in the middle east
9 years of war
weapons of mass destruction that never were
9 years of war multi national forces kicked down the wrong door
9 years of war
9 years endured

fire fights light up the sky
every day and night civilians are terrorised
innocence murdered in the crossfire
bombs drop destroy entire
communities,
good families, yous and me’s
private contractors hire mercenaries
conscription is unnecessary
psychology works sufficiently
troops fueled on amphetamines
teenagers armed with m16’s
half the world watches on the t.V screen
where things are not what they seem

9 years of war
soldiers don’t know what there fighting for in the middle east
9 years of war
weapons of mass destruction that never were
9 years of war multi national forces kicked down the wrong door
9 years of war
9 years endured

you see its big business for the arms traders
its big business for the war mongers its
big business for the poppy farmers
heroin production now strives and prospers in afghanistan
hundreds of thousands of orphan children
mass murder and wide spread starvation
forced mass migration
tell me mister bush was this part of your plan
and mister blair did you under stand
the consequences of you decisions
i wonder can you see what you’ve done evil men

9 years of war
soldiers don’t know what there fighting for in the middle east
9 years of war
weapons of mass destruction that never were
9 years of war multi national forces kicked down the wrong door
9 years of war
2001, 7th october it began

 

IRELAND

Oh Ireland, Ireland the democracy

They sold all our gas to shell oil company

They built a motor way threw the Boyne Valley

Still, free as the birds were free

They polute the rivers and they polution to seas

Polute the skys and they cut down the trees

They lock all the doors and they lose all the keys

Still free as the birds were free

 

They use Shannon Airport for the US army

With no concent from the people of this country

While we take great pride in out nuterality

Still free as the birds were free

 

Forced to vote twice on the Lisbon Treaty

Let the big banks away with robbery

While they make a pigsty of our economy

Still free as the birds were free

 

Oh Ireland, Ireland the democracy

Ireland, Ireland the hypocrocy

Oh Eireann

 

Oh Ireland, Ireland the democracy

Island of culture and creativity

We take great pride in our identity

Yes, free as the birds were free

 

COME AWAY

Come Away….
Come Away….
Come away from a babylon
From a wicked mans plan

In this time when most people are motivated by greed
Buy what their televisions tell them that they need
In an attempt to escape the harsh realities
Carrying heavy loads with hearts empty
So many people searching for release
Running a rat race couped up the cities
Where theres no comfort to be found on the concrete streets
Frustration peaks under babylon heat

Come Away….
Come Away….
Come away from a babylon
From a wicked mans plan
Come Away….
Come Away….
Come away from a babylon scene

Time is a teacher always believe
Embrace the wisdom’s discovered and received
Be aware of the signs that mark your destiny
Always stir clear of bad mentality
Fill your heart with dreams and not a business mans schemes
Love and affection we people need
Every book that you read
Every breath that you breath
In this present moment be

Come Away….
Come away from a babylon
From a wicked mans plan
Come away….

Threw the winds of time we will bend like a reed
Plant the good seed, by example lead
Threw the winds of time…

 

PRECIOUS THING

Life it is a precious thing

Life is such a precious thing

Life it is a precious thing so be good in what you bring

 

Got to make good use of it

Create a dream and pursue it

See the clear truth that exists

With this life that we are all so blessed

Difference of opinion all free to express

Never on another should someone oppress

Don’t put your friends patience to the test

Hold precious your happiness and give thanks for the utmost gift.

 

WONDERFUL WORLD

Its a wonderful world, its a wonderful, its a wonderful world

So many reasons for us to try

Ill tell you why, ill tell you why

And if you can’t see them just know

That its alright, its all right

Cause its a wonderful world, its a wonderful, its a wonderful world

 

EDUCATION

Education is a meditation its the healing of the nation

Stimulate your mind with words of the wise

Look between the lines and try to define

Truth and reality must be identified

Surprise…the truth often comes in disguise

The truth…often ignorance will denied

So question these questions and question these times

Work threw the day and rest threw the night

Know when your wrong and rejoice when your right

Education  is a meditation its the healing of the nation

Work at a comfortable pace

No need to stress

No need to race

Love what you do, love what you create

Take time to rest, take time to play

And if your struggling don’t lose the faith

Pull up your socks and tie your shoes lace

Love what you do love what you create x2
