    Changing The World

    Do not try to change the world.
    You will fail.
    Try to love the world.
    And lo, the world is changed,
    Changed forever.

    Sri Chinmoy

    If we try to change our world
    Without first changing ourselves, we are sure to fail.
    But when we come to terms with its true purpose
    And perceive it in a new light, we learn to love it and
    For us, quite magically, the world changes forever.

    As our inner eyes open, we begin to recognise
    The good in all people and situations.
    Our heart and soul then fills with compassion and love
    For those who, trapped in the darkness of
    Their ignorance and greed, still insist on creating suffering,
    Maybe for millions, and therefore negative Karma for themselves.
    We no longer sit in judgement over anyone
    And that helps us to create ever more positive Karma
    For ourselves and our world.

    I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free



    I wish I knew how
    It would feel to be free.
    I wish I could break
    All the chains holding me.
    I wish I could say
    All the things that I should say,
    Say 'em loud say 'em clear,
    For the whole round world to hear.

    I wish I could share
    All the love that's in my heart,
    Remove all the bars
    That keep us apart.
    I wish you could know
    What it means to be me,
    Then you'd see and agree
    That every man should be free.

    I wish I could give
    All I'm longin' to give.
    I wish I could live
    Like I'm longin' to live.
    I wish I could do
    All the things that I can do.
    And though I'm way over-due,
    I'd be starting anew.

    Well I wish I could be
    Like a bird in the sky.
    How sweet it would be
    If I found I could fly.
    Oh I'dí soar to the Sun
    And look down at the sea.
    Then I'd sing cos I know Ė yea,
    Then I'd sing cos I know Ė yea,
    Then I'd sing cos I know
    I'd know how it feels.
    Oh I know how it feels to be free.
    Yea Yea!
    Oh, I know how it feels
    Yes Ií know,
    Oh, Ií know,
    How it feels,
    How it feels,
    To be free!

    Nina Simone

    The Breaker's Commission - For Today


    Life
    Love
    Forgiveness
    Acceptance
    Stripping demons right off my back
    Trying to leech life off me
    Get off of me, you'll feel my Father's fury, oppressor
    One day you'll feel the full blast of His vengeance, Beelzebub
    But for now I'll love, 'cause I got strength
    He blew courage in my backbone
    Now I'll stand straight and militant
    Lining up in Jehovah's battalion
    Knowing you can't challenge Him, so we march forward
    Swift as eagles, set like talons
    Ready to grip souls from your grasp, slick snake in the grass
    My Lord seize you, and vengeance is His
    But for now I retaliate
    Propelled by a Holy mandate to heal
    Because I know how bad it hurts
    Full of madness at first
    But now gladness burst out the seams of our being
    'Cause we overflow with the oil of joy
    The ointment of anointed
    Mending any torn soul, healing any broken bone
    He is here
    He was there
    He is peace
    He is faithful

    The Mayor of Simpleton by XTC

    Never been near a university,
    Never took a paper or a learned degree,
    And some of your friends think that's stupid of me,
    But it's nothing that I care about.

    Well I don't know how to tell the weight of the sun,
    And of mathematics well I want none,
    And I may be the Mayor of Simpleton,
    But I know one thing,
    And that's I love you.
    When their logic grows cold and all thinking gets done,
    You'll be warm in the arms of the Mayor of Simpleton.

    I can't have been there when brains were handed round
    (please be upstanding for the Mayor of Simpleton),
    Or get past the cover of your books profound,
    (please be upstanding for the Mayor of Simpleton),
    And some of your friends thinks it's really unsound,
    That you're ever seen talking to me.

    Well I don't know how to write a big hit song,
    And all crossword puzzles well I just shun,
    And I may be the Mayor of Simpleton,
    But I know one thing,
    And that's I love you.

    I'm not proud of the fact that I never learned much,
    Just feel I should say,
    what you get is all real,
    I can't put on an act,
    It takes brains to do that anyway. (And anyway...)

    And I can't unravel riddles, problems and puns,
    How the home computer has me on the run,
    And I may be the Mayor of Simpleton,
    But I know one thing,
    And that's I love you (I love you).

    If depth of feeling is a currency,
    (please be upstanding for the Mayor of Simpleton),
    Then I'm the man who grew the money tree,
    (no Chain of Office and no hope of getting one).
    Some of your friends are too brainy to see,
    That they're paupers and that's how they'll stay.

    Well I don't know how many pounds make up a ton,
    Of all the Nobel prizes that I've never won,
    And I may be the Mayor of Simpleton,
    But I know one thing,
    And that's I love you.

    When all logic grows cold and all thinking gets done,
    You'll be warm in the arms of the Mayor of Simpleton.
    You'll be warm in the arms of the Mayor of Simpleton.
    You'll be warm in the arms of the Mayor.
    (Please be upstanding for the Mayor of Simpleton.)
    Opportunities abound! Land and titles available! Be bold! Enquire now!

    My soul longs for You my soul longs for you
    Nothin' else will do nothin' else will do

    My soul longs for You my soul longs for you
    Nothin' else will do nothin' else will do...

    I believe You will come like the rain...

    You'll come like the rain

    So let it rain let it rain let it rain let it rain...
    Hallelujah Halleljujah You'll make all things new

    The Last Rose Of Summer



    'Tis the last rose of summer,
    Left blooming alone.
    All her lovely companions
    Are faded and gone.
    No flower of her kindred
    No rosebud is nigh,
    To reflect back her blushes,
    Or give sigh for sigh.

    Iíll not leave thee, thou lone one,
    To pine on the stem,
    Since the lovely are sleeping,
    Go, sleep thou with them

    Thus kindly Iíll scatter
    Thy leaves oíer the bed,
    Where thy mates of the garden
    Lie scentless and dead.

    So soon may I follow,
    When friendships decay
    And from loveís shining circle
    The gems drop away.
    When true hearts lie withered
    And fond ones are flown,
    Oh! Who would inhabit
    This bleak world alone?

    Thomas Moore

    Sung by The Furey And Davey Arthur

    Is it getting better
    Or do you feel the same
    Will it make it easier on you now
    You got someone to blame
    You say...

    One love
    One life
    When it's one need
    In the night
    One love
    We get to share it
    Leaves you baby if you
    Don't care for it

    Did I disappoint you
    Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
    You act like you never had love
    And you want me to go without
    Well it's...

    Too late
    Tonight
    To drag the past out into the light
    We're one, but we're not the same
    We get to
    Carry each other
    Carry each other
    One...

    Have you come here for forgiveness
    Have you come to raise the dead
    Have you come here to play Jesus
    To the lepers in your head

    Did I ask too much
    More than a lot
    You gave me nothing
    Now it's all I got
    We're one
    But we're not the same
    Well we
    Hurt each other
    Then we do it again
    You say
    Love is a temple
    Love a higher law
    Love is a temple
    Love the higher law
    You ask me to enter
    But then you make me crawl
    And I can't be holding on
    To what you got
    When all you got is hurt

    One love
    One blood
    One life
    You got to do what you should
    One life
    With each other
    Sisters
    Brothers
    One life
    But we're not the same
    We get to
    Carry each other
    Carry each other
    In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird that sings.
    Sometimes all our thoughts are misgiven.

    Wait - White Lion


    Wait, wait, I never had a chance to love you,
    now I only wanna say I love you one more time...

    wait just a moment before our love will die
    cause I must know the reason why we say goodbye
    wait just a moment and tell me why
    cause I can show you lovinī that you won't deny

    I say wait and show your lovinī like it was before
    cause I won't let that feelin walk out through the door
    I say wait just a moment and try once more
    cause babe I need to hold you like I did before

    so if you go away I know that I will follow
    cause there's a place inside my heart that tells me
    hold out, hold out, hold out

    wait - wait
    I never had a chance to love you
    wait - wait
    if only our love could show you
    wait - wait
    I never wanna be without you
    wait - wait
    no I never had a chance to love you
    now I only wanna say I love you
    one more time

    <solo>

    wait - wait
    I never had a chance to love you
    wait - wait
    if only our love could show you
    wait - wait
    I never wanna be without you
    wait - wait
    no I never had a chance to love you
    now I only wanna say I love you
    wait...

    Requiem Aeternam (Music of the Spheres, Elemental Wrath, Xenosynthesis) - Becoming the Archetype

    Music of the Spheres
    (instrumental)

    Elemental Wrath
    Deep within the ocean's keep
    There lies a corpse in endless sleep
    A searchlight pierces the abyss
    And the darkness groans in great distress
    "I am the ocean
    Keeper of every darkened soul
    The never-ending throat of death
    The swallows continents whole"
    Now the ground is shaking
    Midst the grinding gears
    Dead for the taking
    An iron hand appears
    Moving up through time and space
    Sun and sky reveal their face
    A shock runs through the atmosphere
    The wrath of air awakens here
    "I am the blackened sky
    The waters quake beneath my hand
    I am the end of nations
    That rains death upon the land"
    There is a void where the heart should be
    But a stone has held its place
    While there is a likeness of the human form
    No existence lights his face
    Take this heart if you'd survive
    The coming wrath
    Now come alive
    All the earth is silent
    The universe has shifted
    Creation holds its breath
    As the curse of death is lifted

    Xenosynthesis
    The heart of flesh has taken root inside
    The light of life has been injected
    Like circuitry across the expanse of space and time
    Another darkened soul has been connected
    Soli deo gloria
    You can't save yourself
    Enemies are rising up against the light
    Yet it will go on shining even in the darkest night
    Lifted up from the ocean's tomb
    His body modified, surgically improved
    Given a heart that never stops beating
    Given lungs for underwater breathing
    To return to the ocean floor
    To walk among the dead below
    Despite the flesh, light will outpour
    And in the darkness, hope will grow
    The ocean echoes back the music of eternity
    The blackest sky gives way to perfect music
    Requiem aeternam
    Soli deo gloria

    I Know You By Heart



    Midnights in Winter.
    The glowing fire
    Lights up your face in orange and gold.
    I see your sweet smile
    Shine through the darkness,
    Its line is etched in my memory,
    So Iíd know you by heart.

    Mornings in April.
    Sharing our secrets,
    Weíd walk until the morning was gone.
    We were like children,
    Laughing for hours.
    The joy you gave me lives on and on.
    ĎCos I know you by heart.

    I still hear your voice
    On warm Summer nights
    Whispering like the wind.
    You left in Autumn,
    The leaves were turning.
    I walked down roads of orange and gold.
    I saw your sweet smile,
    I heard your laughter,
    Youíre still here beside me every day.

    ĎCos I know you by heart,
    ĎCos I know you by heart.
