I was just a young boy with first guitar in hand
The only thing I dreamt of was playing in a band
Hendrix, Purple, Zeppelin I followed with my friends
But I needed something different to satisfy my pen
But when I heard you singing I knew my life had changed
Just a simple tune that sent shivers down my spine
I didn’t have much money but I always found a way
Of buying every song of yours that I could find
Thank you James
For being there when I needed a friend
In Mexico we walked through fire and rain
So long ago and far away
Thank you James
For being on that Jukebox all alone
I cried as you were singing your sad songs
But it sure was good, to get home again
I practiced hard and there came a day I was always in demand
From studio to studio to endless touring bands
But all I ever wanted was to play the songs I wrote
But they rejected everything without listening to a note
This Taylor sound is very good
But the market’s much too small
Come back when you’ve something we can sell
Now 30 years and more have past
You’re still selling every day
And you still hold your audience in a spell
Thank you James
For helping me to go round just one more time
Carolina was always on my mind
Walking down that lonesome road
Thank you James
How I wish that yours was my town too
But you know that I won’t lie for you
Sweet baby James, I am the man they froze
Thank you James
It’s good to know that you will not die young
Not a victim of Kelly’s machine gun
On that October road, with sunny skies
Thank you James
Even though I’ll be lonely tonight
All I have to do is close my eyes
And sing your song of Copperline

Aunque la tormenta esté azotándome
Seguiré de pie como un roble en el viento
Nada en esta vida logrará torcer mi camino
El cielo se derrumba y me siento solo
Yo tengo que intentar detener la caída
Y cuidar la luz dentro de mí
Ya no pienso descansar
Porqué hay un guerrero en mi interior
Es mi corazón
Creer en algo es el secreto
Ir detrás de un sueño
No perder la magia de amar por amar
Creer en algo es el secreto
Y saber que el dueño
De mis fantasías y mi realidad
Soy yo y nadie más
Cuando se presente ante mí la tristeza
Le diré que aquí ya no tiene un lugar
No permitiré que me lastimen
Voy a luchar
Ya no pienso descansar
Porqué hay un guerrero en mi interior
Es mi corazón
Creer en algo es el secreto
Ir detrás de un sueño
No perder la magia de amar por amar
Creer en algo es el secreto
Y saber que el dueño
De mis fantasías y mi realidad
Soy sólo yo
Ya puedo volar sin ningún temor
Ya me liberé de mi cruel prisión
Ya ves cómo siempre sale el sol
Secreto – ir detrás de un sueño
No perder la magia de amar por amar
Creer en algo es el secreto
Y saber que el dueño
De mis fantasías y mi realidad
Soy yo y nadie más

I have watched the time go by
I’ve risked it all for foolish pride
I’ve yearned for changes fate’s denied
I gaze upon them still
Engaged in battle with my plans
Struggling to understand
What makes this simple man
Wander up that hill
Simple man what are you doing
Simple man what are you proving
You need a simple plan
Simple man
I dream the wind has pulled me free
Above it all above the sea
And looking down through blues and greens
I see a ship like me
Rocking to another’s song
The stars have proved the compass wrong
Will anyone be searching long
For a ship that looks like me
Simple man what are you doing
Simple man what are you proving
You need a simple plan
Simple man
What’s so complicated what’s so complicated
It’s just your life
It’s kind on over-rated not that sophisticated
Just change yourself and you’ll be all right
An empty hand lurks in the dark
To shove me back each time I start
If only I could disregard
The things that people say
And look at me I write this tale
Of woe is me while others sail
As both our silver linings pale
I’ll find another way
Simple man what are you doing
Simple man what are you proving
You need a simple plan
Simple man
I dream the wind has pulled me free
Above it all above the sea
And looking down through blues and greens
I see a ship like me
Rocking to another’s song
The stars have proved the compass wrong
Will anyone be searching long
For a ship that looks like me
Simple man what are you doing
Simple man what are you proving
You need a simple plan
Simple man
Simple man – what are you doing
Simple man – what are you proving
Simple man – simple man simple man
Simple man – simple man

[Outro: Tomstar]
We Good! Aye, yuh yuh yuh yuh aghrrr! [Verse one: Tomstar]
It’s time to let go off my past now,
I wonder if I do what I’m doing its solid man I think I would have been dead now,
That ain’t never too late to change it for days but maybe I’m facing a dead end,
No what am I saying the past is past can’t change it so take it to Lord now,
No well I be on and man Imma do it again and again and again and again,
I’m all on my knees 365 days that’s certain I’m looking for graces,
And now that I’m graced I take it in prayers and man Imma live with these verses,
And they ain’t gon follow the word Imma read out the word then I’ll do it in action,
I think I’m strong to be shaken,
The Lord is standing by my side,
They can’t do nothing no no
Wanna stop me Holy Ghost fire (out)
They’re back again then Fire (out),
I swear I’ll never get tired,
I probably do it for my Lord now,
They’re probably thinking that it’s madness,
I live for God and no.one else
[Chorus: Takue & Tomstar]
Lord knows i been killing now
Lord knows I been drinking now
Lord knows I drug been dealing
Lord knows I been stealing now
Lord knows I been sinning now
Lord knows I been creeping now
Lord please I repent now now I need you now like I know I know I know I
Lord knows I been sinning now
Lord knows I been creeping now
Don’t sin I’m repeling now I need you now
Like I know I know I know I
[Verse two: Victor King]
Yeah!

Keep all your requests, buddy I ain’t hurtin’ for your tips
Keep all your requests, buddy I ain’t hurtin’ for your tips
I ain’t been working all my life to play a bunch of cookie-cutter shit
I’m getting out and going places
Whatever direction that I choose
And I wouldn’t trade my freedom for a minute on your stage
I’d rather play in empty rooms. I know what you wanna hear, but it ain’t what I wanna sing
I know what you wanna hear, but it ain’t what I wanna sing
Playin’ for your favor, simply ain’t my kinda thing
You might think you’re a big deal, but you ain’t a big deal to me
You might think you’re a big deal, but you ain’t a big deal to me
I ain’t attracted to your kingdom so I don’t care that you’re dangling the keys
I’m getting out and going places
Whatever direction that I choose
And I wouldn’t trade my freedom for a minute on your stage
I’d rather play in empty rooms, empty rooms. Headstrong, machete sharp
I’m blazing my own trail. See, I’m blazing my own trail. Headstrong, machete sharp
I’ll navigate the backwoods, you just keep sticking to your charts
I’m getting out and going places
Whatever direction that I choose
And I wouldn’t trade my freedom for a minute on your stage
I’d rather play in empty rooms. Woah, I wouldn’t trade my freedom for a minute on your stage
I’d rather play in empty rooms
Oh, I’d rather play in empty rooms, empty rooms.

Calmly walk the line
When the clouds kiss your eye
Shadows stain on the high-rise
Raise your thumb to the sky
Fossilize
All good things come with time
When you know then you’ll know
Such a marvelous find in an illusion
(Vlader Lauder sat in sorrow
For all his teeth had gone
He drank sweet rum
While fingering his gun
And eyeballed a feast
Not one bite he could eat
Somebody cut off his head!)
Dear radiation my sweet friend
Let agents dance upon my nerves
Let sunlight glow under my skin
Let toxins seep into my soul
When the clouds kiss your eye
Shadows stain on the high-rise
Raise your thumb to the sky
Fossilize
All good things come with time
When you know then you’ll know
Such a marvelous time I will find in an illusion
It’s an illusion… Viewed through the narrow
Encouraged fear when so inclined
Bought peace through wars that doomed our children to die
Ego is sure to fix the world
Served up to happy boys and girls
I’d make a decision if granted the privilege
But I’m afraid my taste is unrefined
And no one likes cheap wine
When the clouds kiss your eye
Shadows stain on the high-rise
Raise your thumb to the sky
Fossilize
You own the burg. Who writes the check? We forage to eat
Well who pays the tab when you cross the line? Sewn up our eyes
Found fuel in meds. Who’s herding the swine? We sleep in streets
You dine then waste. Just takes a fence to rule the roost
As long as the scale has been reduced
How can we see the outside of the pen when survival has possession of our minds? We’ve been through hell.

It seems I should have walked away
Reverse the wager I’ve no means to pay
Toto has pulled back the green tonight, in sight
And blue pills coat with such disdain
I wore the shades for so long
That I’ve forgotten how to see
The curtain rises but who dares to pull the strings
I know this may be hard for you to believe and all
But you only exist because we allow it
I’ve questioned all the voices in my head
Are they mine or have I been misled? By the way of cosmic rays
A subtle breakdown jarred the code display
A simulation as I can tell, our cell
Playing out a hopeless scene
We stand to lose all our charm
And faith just seems to wane
A billion years can seem a stunningly short time
You’ve been beaten down time and time again
But still you find yourself at the center of it all
I’ve questioned all the voices in my head
Are they mine or have I been misled? You hear me, you had one thing to do, one thing
And you fucked it up, piece of shit
Nurse, patient 666158 needs to be sedated
We need 500 CCs of Blue Comfort, muahahaha
Oh hello there, dearie
I’ve been expecting you
Posturing the way I feel
Is truth only what we believe is real? Marvel the sketches that paint the night, starlight
And take a breath before it’s all erased away Total understanding doesn’t seem to mean a thing
When you can’t see behind the silver screen, a figurine
Can’t you hear me scream? Total understanding doesn’t seem to mean a thing
When you can’t see behind the silver screen, a figurine
Can’t you hear me scream?

As the embers rose through the Roman sky
Tell me were you calm when they took your life? Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true
Shared with us the world well before your time
Though they took your voice words forever shine
Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true
As they spoke your fate a fearless man replied
“As you will sentence me, your fear is beyond mine”
Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true

Think about your answer but please understand
While it’s natural to fear, I’ll make it disappear forever
I forever
[Chorus]
I’m way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals
I shed my human side
Farther, O’ Father
I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside? Final paradigm
[Verse 3]
What’s it really mean to be a man? I’m clawing my skin but I can’t feel it inside
I know the agony of pain would hurt so much better
[Outro]
I’m way up, so far up
Have I lost myself tonight? Father, O’ Father
Have you lost that boy you used to know? [Verse 1]
You’ve been breaking down for far too long
Far too many moons since you felt well and strong
You see, you could say goodbye but you don’t have to die
Not ever
[Verse 2]
Engineer the wires to your brain
Architect a code so you won’t feel the pain
With your family by your side and vigor in your eyes forever
Live forever
[Chorus]
I’m way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals
I shed my human side
Farther, O’ Father
I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside? Final paradigm
[Bridge]
(Singular I am)
I have the question if these thoughts are mine
To live forever but did something in me die?

Freed of the world
Shed of the weight
Onward to see you my friend
Light years above
(Take me higher)
Time seems to wait
(Take me higher)
Promise to see you again
It haunts to remember
All the memories of that day
Pre-flight demonstration
Led to desperate voices fueled by flames
Now I’m out here waitin’
Hoping you would send a sign
Came a million miles
And the earth grows small as I lovingly leave it behind
Freed of the world
Shed of the weight
Onward to see you my friend
We seem to have found it
All the hope we’ve been denied
There’s more than we’ve been told
Had to find it on the other side
Now I must be dreaming
Face against the frozen glass
But there’s no return now
And the blazing worlds salute
As we go flying past
Freed of the world
Shed of the weight
Onward to see you my friend
Light years above
(Take me higher)
Time seems to wait
(Take me higher)
Promise to see you again
Meet you in the stars tonight
There you find me drifting in the ether within the hill (x4)

Can’t you see we’re tripping on the wire
Walking through the candy land of our desires
Press the magic button and behold the world you crave
Where’s the fun in freedom when it renders you a slave? Oh! Pledge allegiance, no flag
God nation, goddamned
The devil dances with the scorned
And how the fire keeps us warm
Hey! It goes beyond big brother in the sky
Beyond the threat of martial law no Horus eye
No one came to cuff you they just handed you the chains
Blind follows the blind and now the one-eyed man is king
Pledge allegiance, no flag
God nation, goddamned
The devil dances with the scorned
And how the fire keeps us warm
Tunnel vision, no man
Damnation, god damn
Can’t see the forest for the trees
Can’t heal the wound before we bleed
No form of payment, no pot of gold will satisfy the debt of what he’s owed
Spilling from the houses in a trance the children lined up on the road
Cursing at the piper as he lured your kids away
And led them to the river for what was their final day
No need for convincing on his pipe he played a song to fool them all
Fooled them all
Pledge allegiance, no flag
God nation, goddamned
The devil dances with the scorn
And now the fire keeps us (keeps us)
Tunnel vision, no man
Damnation, god damn
Can’t see the forest for the trees
Can’t heal the wound before we bleed Hey!

Lights paint the windows in the sky
The past is sown
In pursuit our spirit shown
But for now there’s no one home
Heaven works on borrowed time
(Walk alone)
Empty pages burn forever mine
(Walk alone)
Masquerade us upon high
(Walk alone)
All we are is all we’ve left behind
My sweet Medusa, reflect the empty in our being
Snakes born of fire conjure the demons in our dreams
In void we illustrate our lives
Emerge in small
Heed the sign meant to evolve
To the end we send the call
Heaven works on borrowed time
(Walk alone)
Empty pages burn forever mine
(Walk alone)
Masquerade us upon high
(Walk alone)
All we are is all we’ve left behind
Where children shiver in the cold
The sun will shine
Just a touch to heal the blind
In ourselves we hope to find
Heaven works on borrowed time
(Walk alone)
Empty pages burn forever mine
(Walk alone)
Masquerade us upon high
(Walk alone)
All we are is all we’ve left behind
Alone

The day we cease the exploration of the cosmos is the day we threaten the continuing of our species. Do we admit that our thoughts & behaviors spring from a belief that the world revolves around us? Each fabricated conflict, self-murdering bomb, vanished airplane, every fictionalized dictator, biased or partisan, and wayward son, are part of the curtains of society’s racial, ethnic, religious, national, and cultural conflicts, and you find the human ego turning the knobs and pulling the levers. [Instrumental Intro]
[M. Think for a moment of all the lives
Stripped of their essence before their time
We stand to conquer
But is there nothing left tomorrow? Until the rise of a visionary new culture that once again embraces the cosmic perspective; a perspective in which we are one, fitting neither above nor below, but within.” Shadows]
Our truth is painted across the sky
In our reflection we learn to fly
No hand to hold us
No one to save us from tomorrow
Sailing away, beyond the reach of anyone
Far beyond the dreams of everyone
No light to follow
A shot in the dark
Does anybody know? In that bleak world, arms-bearing, resource-hungry people & nations would be prone to act on their low-contracted prejudices, and would have seen the last gasp of human enlightenment. There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on the world’s beaches, more stars in the universe than seconds of time that have passed since Earth formed, more stars than words & sounds ever uttered by all humans who have ever lived. And yet, uncounted people remain hopeless, famine and calamity abound. Sufferers hurl themselves into the arms of war; people kill and get killed in the name of someone else’s concept of God. I see a universe ever-expanding, with its galaxies embedded within the ever-stretching four-dimensional fabric of space and time. However big our world is, our hearts, our minds, our outsize atlases, the universe is even bigger. Sailing away, beyond the reach of anyone
Far beyond the dreams of everyone
No light to follow
A shot in the dark
Does anybody know? Sailing away, beyond the reach of anyone
Far beyond the dreams of everyone
High from the heavens
I can’t see the pain
Does anybody care? When I track the orbits of asteroids, comets, and planets, each one a pirouetting dancer in a cosmic ballet, choreographed by the forces of gravity, I see beyond the plight of humans. Sailing away, beyond the reach of anyone
Far beyond the dreams of everyone
High from the heavens
I can’t see the pain
Does anybody care? [Neil deGrasse Tyson]
“We have one collective hope: the Earth.

What’s the matter dear
Seems the ghost
Is in your stall
For a thousand years
Taured lived within us all
I’ve come from
Somewhere beyond
Lost in a world
Voyage in time
Shot through the worm
Scaling the vine
Here in ’54
Tastes of napalm fill the sky
Axis wins the war
Seems the crop of our divide
I’ve slipped through
Bodies aligned
Lost in the world
Voyage in time
Shot through the worm
Scaling the vine
[Solo]
All that’s me
And all that’s you
All that’s false
And all that’s true
On the sea you sailed away
Another time
You’d surely stay
It’s only fabric so it seems
Our intimate reality
We’re living simultaneously
While parallel in possibilities
Lost in the world
Voyage in time
Shot through the worm
Scaling the vine
Lost in the world
Voyage in time
Shot through the worm
Scaling the vine

Have you noticed that I’m needin’ it more now, more than it needs me
Got a couple of billion that seem to agree
Surfing in an artificial dimension, but we’re not alone
Now the master has become just a stepping stone, oh
Like a blow to the ego the bitter pills are harder to take
We’re creating god, master of our designs
We’re creating god, unsure of what we’ll find
We’re creating god, in search of the divine
We’re creating god. Committing suicide Standing in the shade of altruism, answering the call
Came a modern messiah to save us all
Something far beyond the work of fiction, Positronic brain
A world that’s void of all the anguish and suffering, pain
Better tame your convictions before you go and open the cage
We’re creating god, master of our designs
We’re creating god, unsure of what we’ll find
Never held a high regard for Darwin, selection takes too long
A little kick in the pool shouldn’t do us wrong
Devouring the very last invention man would ever need
But exponential growth is a frightening thing, indeed
Sweet bohemian jury rounded up and hung in the streets
We’re creating god, master of our designs
We’re creating god, unsure of what we’ll find
Sometimes when I look up to the sky I have to wonder are we “summoning the demon” you and I?
