1 Play Victory Dance

Should I close my eyes and prophesize- hoping maybe someday come? Should I wet the ground with my old tears, cryin over whats been done? Should I lift the dirt and plant the seed even tho ive never grown? Should I wet the ground with the sweat from my brown And believe in my good work? Hey there- I'm flying up above Lookin' down...on the tired earth... ...But I can see... I can see potential Speaking through you- speaking to you From all of heavens possibility Power- hey do you know how it works? Hey do you know that the meek- they shall inherit the earth? ...But you should work- for the self and the family Should I hit the water or stay on dry land, even though I never swam? Take machete into the brush- though at first there is no path... Taste the warpaint on my tongue as it's drippin with my sweat... Place my gaze in the futures path- seein' things that ain't come yet Hope to watch the victory dance after the days work is done Hope to watch the victory dance in the evenings setting sun Hope to watch the victory dance over many lives to come Hope to watch the victory dance in the evenings setting sun Hope to dance the victory dance after the days work is done Hope to dance the victory dance in the evenings setting sun Hope to dance the victory dance over many lives to come Hope to dance the victory dance in the evenings setting sun

2 Play Circuital
Spinning out, gracefully. goin' nowhere, quickly
I am older, day by day...but still goin' back to my childhood way
Circuital. round and round...patiently
Getting lost...by the guide
And I am all worked up...over nothing
Circuits, all runnin' out. connect my body...deep into the ground
Circuit, connect the earth to the moon,
And link our heavenly bodies not a moment too soon
Well you can fling open the windows, or you can board 'em up
Satan's jeweled crown or christs humble cup
You think you'll find yourself out there...out in the lions den?
In some bloody battle over belief systems...
Or disappear into the vacuum, total neutrality...
Where you can't lose nothin'...but nothin' can be gained
Well any way you cut it, we're just spinnin' round...
Out on the circuit, over the hallowed ground
Out on the circuit, over the hallowed ground...
Endin' up in the same place...that we started out
Right back in the same place...that we started out

3 Play The Day Is Coming
You need it, that's for sure. you receive, but always want more
Taken...for granted. this lifetime....and whats up ahead
But the day is coming, the day is near
The day is coming, you know what I mean
The day is coming, the way is clear
The day has come
Bang bang! on the door
You open, not knowing what for
If opportunity rears its head,
Will you answer, or stay home in bed?
Because the day is coming, the day is near
The day is coming, you know what I mean
The day is coming. the way is clear
The day has come

4 Play Wonderful (The Way I Feel)
It matters to me, took a long time to get here,
But if it would have been easy, I would not have cared
Like a tropical forest, like a cop on the beat
When all is in order, you get lost in the heat
I feel so wonderful, wonderful, wonderful the way I feel
Doesn’t matter to me. I can take it or leave it
I can learn from way back when and still live right now
With the sun on my shoulders, and the wind at my back
I will never grow older, at least not in my mind
I feel so wonderful, wonderful, wonderful the way I feel
I’m going where there ain’t no fear. I’m going where the spirit is near
I’m going where the livin; is easy and the people are kind
A new state of mind
I’m going where there ain’t no police, I’m going where there ain’t no disease
I’m going where there ain’t no need to escape from what is
Only spirits at ease

5 Play Outta My System
They told me not to smoke drugs, but I wouldn’t listen
Never thought I’d get caught, and wind up in prison
Chalk it up to youth but young age I ain't dissin'
I guess I just had to get it out of my system
Outta my system, outta my system
Oh lord I'd never do it now 
I know what I ain’t missin’
Glad I went and got it all out of my system
The lust of youth vs. marriage and security,
I’m glad I’m here now, but just between you and me
I had to get out and make the deals,
And learn to know how it feels but that it ain’t real
Outta my system, outta my system
There's a way to have it all, you know I ain’t kidding
Some things I know I'll never get out of my system
If you don't live now,  you ain’t even tryin’
And then you're on your way to a mid-life crisis
Live it out, any way you feel
You can feel it in your bones, but try to deny it
Wipe it off your face but your eyes won't hide it
You knew it all along, but never made it clear
They told me not to steal cars, but I wouldn't listen
Never thought I'd get caught and wind up in prison
Chalk it up to young age, but youth I ain't dissin'
I guess I just had to get it out of my system
Outta my system, outta my system
Oh lord I'd never do it now 
I know what I ain’t missin’
Glad I went and got it all out of my system

6 Play Holdin On to Black Metal
It’s a darkness you can’t deny, but it don’t belong in a grown-up mind
Distortion finds its place in a youngsters eyes, coming into life you need its grind
But at a certain point you gotta let it go, or it will cross the permanent threshold
You know you gotta find it out in something else good 
Oh black metal you so misunderstood!
Holdin’ on to black metal, black metal you been holdin’ on too long
Oh black metal so misunderstood, deep black service under lucifer’s hood
Black metal steals souls young enough is enough
32oz refill out of lucifer’s cup
Black metal need to be unlearned you teenage pup!
Look at you starchild, you all grown up!
But still holdin’ on to black metal, black metal you been holdin’ on too long
Catching waves, on lucifers beach
Taking shade underneath lucifer’s trees
Getting sustenance from lucifer’s peach
Oh black metal, its affecting all your speech!
Holdin’ on to black metal, black metal you been holdin’ on too long

7 Play First Light
First light tonight, first light tomorrow
First light this morning, first light this evening
First light tonight
Been lookin back, down through the ages
First I was an ancient, then I was an infant,
Now I am alive
Been holdin’ out, searchin’ for somethin’
Somethin’ to carry me over the sunset-
To dawn’s early light
First light tonight, first light tomorrow
First light this morning, first light this evening
First light tonight
Then I found it, or did it find me?
My search it was over, my blood filled with gold
My own inner light
I been prayin’ still holdin’ on
First light tonight, first light tomorrow
First light this morning, first light this evening
First light tonight

8 Play You Wanna Freak Out
Play it safe, play it cool
If you ever emote, you're playin’ the fool
Is that the way you think it is, you cant get yours if he ain’t gettin’ his?
C'mon- you know how you are
First you're up, up, down, down
One day you're in, the next one you're out
You wanna freak out? c'mon. you wanna freak out? c'mon 
Play it smart, soul intact
How you react is what you'll get back
‘Cause that's the way it really be, I am "you're" and "you're" is me
C'mon- you know how we are
First we're up, up, down, down
One day we're in, the next one we're out
You wanna freak out? c'mon. you wanna freak out? c'mon

9 Play Slow Slow Tune
Slow- not the meter of today, but I’m not singin’ for now anyway
This slow, slow tune
You- somewhere in the future listening. I hope the present for ya is glistening
With notes that ring so true, this slow, slow tune
Slow- daddy's playin’ just for you, the tempos right, I’m in a mellow mood
Oh! this slow, slow tune
Gotta radiate the gold, gotta radiate the gold, gotta radiate the gold
True-daddy's singin’ just for you but do you hear him, baby, anymore? 
Now that you've outgrown, this slow, slow tune
Grown- with a meter all your own
You decide the pace, you set the tone
The future now you own, this slow, slow tune
Slow, slow tune
04:31
10 Play Movin' Away
Movin’ away, crazy destiny, I'll always be an alarmist
Who'll jump at a chance, anything for romance!
I hope I'll always be what you want
Movin’ away, those I'll miss, those I wont
But I hope your heart will be where my home is
A new life to create, a new life to create
Don't know quite why, but I was feelin’ unsatisfied
I had to get out now, try and find it
Possessed by your love, under the influence
And though there's a new life line, I wont forget the one I left behind
A new life to create, a new life to create, a new little life
