Track Name: Harmony
I have always known there was a way to feel at home, to find a home.
On this blue shining ball that we all call our Mother Earth.
It cam be so easy, to live in harmony can be so sweet.
Sweet sweet harmony.
Track Name: White Light
White light shinning through my heart, that's the way we're bound to start it all. Some lose their faith but I'm still holding on.
Track Name: Passage
Hey I just want you to know that I'm following this whole.
To see how far it goes.
All the way down, deep into the ground I'm going, I may be gone for a while.
Track Name: L.
I've got my problems, you've got yours too, I think all problems spring from a denial of the truth.
First time I saw you one thing I knew, we could be together, at least I wanted to know you and I still do.
Track Name: Mirror
I'm not going to run away, I'm more than happy to stay, just one thing I want to do is make a better world with you.

You're a mirror for me, help me see the things I cannot see, you show me who I am even when I do not give a damn.
Track Name: Suppression
All the things I've felt all my life I've been holding them so deep inside where I can hide anything or so I think.

Squeeze, crush, suppression. Keep it locked up tight so tight inside.

Run, scream, dance and shout! Time to let it all out! I love you, I love all of you!
Track Name: Winter
It's been a long time since I've had you on my mind, I've met so many beautiful souls as time moves along.

I have always found what I have sought, the seed of it nothing more than a thought.
Track Name: The Peasant and The King
Both are the same, neither knows the other's name, neither can believe what neither can deny, when they look into each other's eyes.

The peasant and the king are the same same thing, the peasant and the king are the same, now go and try n' tell that to the kings.
Track Name: Time To Shine
No more time to hide, now it's time to shine, I've been around the world again and again. I've been looking for something good,
like this moment now.
