Track Name: Help Yourself
I’m a kid left in a candy store
I’m a prisoner at an open door
I just need a little more
So, I'll just help myself

You're a river running downstream
A catcher for a bad dream
Sometimes, you make me wanna scream
But, you can't help yourself

You can help yourself

You're an avalanche of need
A hunger that has to feed
You're a wound that's gonna bleed
Please help yourself

You're at terminal velocity
With animal ferocity
So, I say with generosity
Help yourself

You can help yourself

You're the blast off from the countdown
The goes around that comes around
You may be lost but will be found
If you just help yourself

When you come down from the high
You might feel like you could die
I only wish that you would try
To help yourself

You can help yourself
You can help yourself
Track Name: Bali
The black sand beach is right within reach for those that teach in Bali
Volcanic panic is semi-automatic if tsunamis should roll into Bali

Build a shrine for those divine, they're livin' in trees in Bali
Fruit and flowers for the higher powers, livin' in the trees in Bali

We're going down to hang around in Kuta Town in Bali

Release your soul with a fire in the hole if it takes its toll in Bali
Your flesh may burn but you'll return to live your life in Bali

We're going down to hang around in Kuta Town in Bali

common folks are common folks livin' their lives in Bali
Musicians, merchants, priests and kings live a good life in Bali

We're going down to hang around in Kuta Town in Bali

In twenty o'two, the Sari Club blew and the lights went out in Bali
File your teeth if you need relief from your anger down in Bali

We're going down to hang around in Kuta Town in Bali
Track Name: Nobody
Who amongst us deserves to be homeless ?
Does anyone really deserve to be hungry or cold ?
Which of you should have to wait longer for health care ?
And who should decide that your rights may be sold ?
Nobody, Nobody

Is there anyone out there who would destroy a species of animal ?
Does anyone really want to pollute our world ?
Which of you will step up and drink the water
when it’s no longer clean and it’s no longer pure ?
Nobody, Nobody

Who amongst us believes that violence is a viable solution ?
Does anyone amongst us really want to go to war ?
Who’s going to send their children ?
And does anybody know what we’re really fighting for ?
Nobody, Nobody

Who exactly is going to keep us all quiet ?
Who precisely is going to keep us all down ?
Who’s going to profit from the greed and deception
if we commit to sharing what‘s going around ?
Nobody, Nobody
Track Name: Long Time
Well, I’ve been searching for a long time
And I’ve been walking down a fine line
I’ve been trying to find a way to say OK
I need somebody just to be mine

And I think I’ve found a way now
And I’ve got to share this way how
The way I had to find the time to shine
And let somebody into my life

First I had to set myself free
Release the chains that were imprisoning me
I had to give away the day to day
I had to get out of the grind

I had to make a reservation
I had to book a small vacation
I had to pack up all my cares and all my wares
I had to send them to the station

Now I’m not talking about leaving
And I’m not talking about grieving
I’m saying that I sent away the day to day
To make some room for more believing

Yeah, I’ve been searching for a long time
And I’ve been trying to walk a fine line
Track Name: Slow Time ft. Microcosm

Track Name: Everything Rests in Time
Coincidence or fate ?
inquiring minds can't wait
to serve another theory
of conspiracy on your plate

If you choose some humble pie
and never question why,
you'll find some piece of mind
'cause everything rests in time

Everything rests in time
whether reason or in rhyme
the wager I will decline
I will resign to see it all rest in time

It doesn't mean that I don't care
the accusation isn't fair
it's a simple Zen equation
like breathing - air

You can try to re-arrange it
you might think that you can change it
but in the end you'll find
that everything rests in time

Everything rests in time
whether reason or in rhyme
the wager I will decline
I will resign to see it all rest in time

Time is no one's enemy
Time is no one's friend
it's only relativity
in the end
Don't let it drive you crazy
Don't let it drive you mad
even you will rest in time
Track Name: Celebration
Everybody
in every nation
incoming communication

Your life is a celebration
no need for an invitation
everybody in every nation
is deserving love

It's time to get it on
It's time for takin' off
send your dreams
like balloons aloft

Dare to dream
and shout your joy
every girl
and every boy

Brothers, sisters,
young and old
forget all the lies
you've been told

Our life is a celebration
no need for an invitation
everybody in every nation
is deserving love

Everybody, it’s not too late
We can all celebrate
