I hear the 3 birds sing
They're getting quite the harmony
Half the world can hear the song
But clearly not the powers that be

99 percent are soft hearted
What do we do with the 1 percent?
We the people should clearly ignore them
What do you think Mr President?

Every time I look to the future
I see a dream that's stranded at sea
I dive right in to the depths of the ocean

And launch straight up to push it on free-------
Do you hear me?

I'm sweltering,
we're in a bright blue sky day
And I thank the stratosphere,
for it's been a bit heavy round here

I hear the peace train whistle,
toot, for the first time in years
Lets bust the rust and grease the peace,
lets wash the track using the

Millions of tears
Of War torn people
Converge in a tidal
Wave tinged with red
I dive right in to the depths of the ocean
And launch right up with the hopes of the dead to see-----------

We gotta have peace
We gotta have peace
It's what everyone needs
So we gotta have peace

Metal Bird
Majestically, Soaring through the Sky
No I'm never, gonna die
I sunk my talons into the ground
I just need my rest, then I'll shake the Sound

Blow the cobwebs
Turn me loose
I'm not old
I Just need a boost
Just you watch me
Launch again
I'll take you back to
Way back when

The Fire was, burning through my eyes... to see
This worlds changing , every year
I don't know my place in this new frontier
The changing winds , blow hot and cold
They buy and sell me , but only I own my soul

I'm not a number
I'm not a name
I'm a free wild spirit
And I play no games
Try and stop me
I'll break through
The crack in the sky
Is where I'll head in to

My new world
my new life
My new Life
My new ------ life

Try and stop me I'm never gonna die
I'm the life force of the breeze I am the spirit of the sky
I'm the rays of the sun beaming to multiply
I've left the shackles of the land I am the spirit of the sky
I am the spirit of the sky, my legacy's here to stay
I am the clouds floating by I am the sunset of day
& If you're ever in doubt then let my motto ring out
I am the spirit of the sky hear me howl here me shout
I'm metal Bird , I'm Metal Bird
I Love you

Thanks for the time
I'm metal Bird , I'm Metal Bird
Remember I'm the Spirit of the sky
I'm never gonna die
Love from The Rainbow Mandrills

1/ Dome

An obelisk and dome (a dome a dome a dome)
A wail and a moan (a moan a moan a moan)
An angel and a harpoon
An odd one out alone

Some gumption and a backbone (a bone a bone a bone)
Gutless and alone (alone alone alone)
An angel and her halo-ween mask
Oh odd one take me home

Oh sweet angel
Gather up your wings
Your halo’s dim
So toss it to the wind
Your robe’s askew
Give me everything

A dirty dog still needs a bone (a bone a bone a bone)
And a tickle of his tum (his tum his tum his tum)
Even an angel gets her freak on
Sometimes you’ve just got to get some

A honeybee and a flower (power power power)
A horned up love hormone (a moan a moan a moan)
An angel and her pitchfork
Pokes my ass back home

Oh sweet angel
Gather up your wings
Your halo’s dim
So toss it to the wind
Your robe’s askew
Give me everything

It’s steamy and warm
Up in paradise a raging storm
Rain your loving won’t you rain it down on me?
It’s steamy and warm
Up in paradise a raging storm
Rain your loving won’t you rain it down on me

My obelisk
Needs your dome
Balancing
Up my home
My sun won’t shine
So bathe me in your moon


2/ Wild fire wild dreams

Wild fire is running wild
Spreading all across the nation
Wild fire is running wild
Its lit the fuse to my imagination

Wild dreams are hitting the streets
I’ve woke up from my hibernation
Wild dreams are hitting the streets
Don’t be denied of your liberation

Don’t sit on your wings
If you feel the urge to soar
Look out for I’m coming world
I’ve found what I’m looking for

Wild nights when we take our rights
Grease the wheel with lubrication
Wild nights when we take our rights
When we dance the dance of jubilation

Wild times as we redefine
The ways and words of conversation
Wild times as we redefine
The thoughts I hold have no definition

Speak out and spill your thoughts
If your heart is screaming to roar
Look out for I’m coming world
I’ve found what I’m looking for

Wild fire and wild dreams
I hope you know
What I mean
And what I’ve seen
And what I dream
A dream I should live to see


3/ Cosmic leaning dreamers

We’ve come,
Such a long way
Far more to go
The hundredth monkey
Will let us know
Things forgotten
Like purity
And kick out rotten
Like poverty

We are golden just life’s dirt won’t let us shine

Our minds are shook
But our spirit’s strong
We’re a fresh new book
And a brand new song
We’re bravery
In a cloak of scared
Our soul is ready
Minds are ill prepared

Cosmic leaning dreamers of our time

We want you
Every one of you
Come on dreamers
Let’s wake the sleepers
There’s madness in this world
The beauty’s left furled
Let’s coax it tenderly
And bloom to greatness

We’re a flower
All are graceful
We persevere
In spite of ridicule
The bomb’s all blow up
Still the flowers grow
We’re millions strong
So let the masses know

Crush us down, new shoots will spread around

Cosmic leaning dreamers of our time

We want you
Every one of you
Come on dreamers
Let’s wake the sleepers
There’s madness in this world
The beauty’s left furled
Let’s coax it tenderly
And bloom to greatness
bloom to greatness
bloom to greatness
bloom to greatness
bloom to greatness


4/ A Cosmic Mind Trip

I am, you are, we all, are stars
A piece, a part, the end, the start

Only a Cosmic mind trip away

A Freak, a fraud, a lover, adored
We’re one; we’re us, in peace, and trust

Only a Cosmic mind trip away


5/ A Peaceful Dove

This is my life
This is my life
This is my life
And I’m NOT gonna blame
And I’m NOT gonna change
No one but me

My hearts / forever on the roam
Like a / Speeding Rolling stone
Will I / ever find my dome?
A / Cradle for my own
In life you / got to take a risk
To ful / fill the promises
And be a / mighty obelisk
Together / bring some tenderness

This is my life------
I’m going to live, I’m gonna love
I’m going to float -----like a
Peaceful dove
An sing, and bring, my all to

Everything, Everything Everything, Everything
Everything comes from nothing
And Nothing Comes from Everything
A little bit to the whole lot
I’m gonna give everything I got
Na Na Na Na Na Hey


7/ Baffled

All I hear is sermons from mermen
Flopping around like angelic demons
I don’t know if I should dive in the sea
I can’t tell if he’s flirting with me

I’m baffled-----------------
Baffled
Baffled
Baffled
Baffled
I just don’t know

All I see is misfits with missiles
Beautiful things getting crushed all of the while
I’m so sick of us treading on peace
Close down you fears let your heart release

Love------------------

It’s what we are
Spirit stars
Let’s all
Coil back
And aim so far

And soar right across the sky
Impossibilities will wither and die
No-one will ever be afraid to try
Pick up each other and raise us high
All hearts are beautiful
All souls are so peaceful
Our bodies are gonna fail
But we are so much more


8/ Let Us All Be Beautiful

We’re freedom
We’re peace
We are cosmically
Unleashed
We’re dreamers
We’re fine
We’re moving on
Up the line
And we’re drifters
Coz we’re free
We cut the noose
Of rigid belief
And our souls shine
With pure love
And our dreams
Glide on wings of doves
We’ll find rainbows
The true sign
The sky ain’t blue
We’ve just crippled minds

For we are multi
If we just see
Past the limits
Of our fragility
To see we’re destined
To be true love
For we are love
And we’ve always been

Let us all be beautiful
Let us all be beautiful
Let us all be beautiful
Let us all be beautiful

It’s what we are
Spirit stars
Let’s all
Coil back
And aim so far

War... we don’t want it
Hate...we don’t need it
Segregation...why exclude?
Without each other... we ain’t no use
Haters...they’re just scared
As lovers, we should be prepared
To be kind...with our kindred
Respect each other...as sacred
With each other...We got it all
Build the weak ... so we are all strong
Our strength... is in our numbers
We hold the power..with the strength of thunder
And we won’t stop... until we get there
And what is there?.A.paradise shared
Say it again.. a paradise shared
Again...a paradise shared

Let us all be beautiful
Let us all be beautiful
Let us all be beautiful
Let us all be beautiful

It’s what we are
Spirit stars
Let’s all
Coil back
And aim so far


9/ Perfectly Clear

There’s a problem
And I don’t know what to do
My head cries run
But my heart flows for you

It’s beating, it’s weeping, fleeting between-----
Everything and nothing in the life force stream

This quandary
Is laying heavy on my brain
I want to step aside
And run to you again—

Rolling and tumbling, forevermore
Enjoying our journey, til we reach the core
When we find out the essence of each beating heart
And see if the end is yet another start

But baby -------------
Baby I will always love you
I’ll love you-----
Oooooo------
Forever

Oh there is a time, for wait and see
But my heart is a window and you see how I feel
I want to call off the mountain in to God’s left ear
Scream my hearts pure for you and make it perfectly clear

That baby -------------
Baby I will always love you I’ll love you-----
Oooooo------

For-----ev-----er
For me there’s nobody better
When you walked into my life I found
I coul be better with my true love around
My heart is like a Golden Throne
Resplendently shining
But colder when alone
I’m me and I will always be me
But me with you shines much more brightly --------

The Quandary is
I love you
The problem is
I’m nowhere near
You


10/ Peaceful Touch

I am here, I offer up my time
My peaceful touch, I hope softens up your mind


11/ Share Our World Tonight

I’m bending like a Tree to free the ivy curse
And shelter each and every one of my lovely birds
Upon the rivers breeze I hear a celebration
I’ll give anything for union

Fill the air
With song, love, dance and prayer
Share our world tonight
I’ll be there
With smiles, drinks and dreams prepared
Share our World tonight

What we need is a empty vessel
Fill it up --- with grace and charm
Wisdom to listen and dreams to pursue them
And hold it in our loving arms

Fill the air
With song, love, dance and prayer
Share our world tonight
I’ll be there
With smiles, drinks and dreams prepared
Share our World tonight

Let the dream Run wild
We are Mother Nature’s Child
So let the Dream Run Wild
And Sing it off the Mountain High
We are Love-----------------
Songs are coming
Hearts are Humming
It’s time to let the Dream run Wild

I’ll give anything to be there with you
I’ll give anything to be there with you
I’ll give anything to be there with you
But know you are in my Heart


12/ Arms Around

The Quandary’s solved
It’s all just fell away
We’re a love that just can’t fade
We all just rise again yeah

The mystery’s obvious
We we’re meant for us
You stoke a fire inside of me
That bleeds creation

Do Do do Do

I been baffled
Felt the dream slip away
But when I closed my eyes
It’s yours I saw today

In the dark
Like 2 bright shining stars
The worries all gone like
Ointment on my scars

Do Do do Do
Drown me in this
Roll me in the Dew
Your kisses will never say
How much I love you
But let’s try and drown
In the temptation of this
I’m starved and drunken
Needing one more kiss

Oh Put your arms around me and never let me go (No No No No)
Put your arms around me and never let me go
I’m safe on solid ground let the world pass by and go
So keep those arms around me and never let me go

Separate is fine
But together we’re a harmony
My smiles a world full
But when I see you it goes cosmically

Way past the stars
Out into the unknown
But I’m not scared
Your smile warms me to the bone

Do Do do Do
Drown me in this
Roll me in the Dew
Your kisses will never say
How much I love you
But let’s try and drown
In the temptation of this
I’m starved and drunken
Needing one more kiss

Oh Put your arms around me and never let me go (No No No No)
Put your arms around me and never let me go
I’m safe on solid ground let the world pass by and go
So keep those arms around me and never let me go


13/ Will you be ready?

There’s a time and it’s coming soon
The light will shine and take away this gloom
Don’t know when but it’s coming fast
Our children kids will look back aghast
Unbelieving what we couldn’t see
Just like we look back at slavery
There’s a time and it’s coming soon
We’re going to take a deep breath and sing a whole new tune

All the birdies gonna sing to the sky
It’s raining love and it will wash our eyes
To see, just how wrong were we?
All the monkeys gonna dance and holler
They’re on the cusp of the start of a new tomorrow
We’re all gonna find some peace of mind
Will you be ready?
To swallow your pride
Will you be ready?
To swim with the tide
Better be soon
Cos I’m taking your hand
And we all will soon learn what we don’t understand

There’s an energy heading our way
It’s gonna bring all our dreams to reali/ty--------
A ray of love will swell in our hearts
Enough for me for you and for the world to
Start------Getting us all back to one

All the birdies gonna sing to the sky
It’s raining love and it will wash our eyes
To see, just how wrong were we?
All the monkeys gonna dance and holler
They’re on the cusp of the start of a new tomorrow
We’re all gonna find some peace of mind
Will you be ready?
To go with the flow
Will you be ready?
To let go and grow
There’s gonna be those
Who will say “it ain’t so”
Are you going to stand strong?
And say what you know-----

Are you ready, you bet I am
Over many raging seas I’ve swam
Are you ready, I hope you are?
Do you hear it calling from the farthest star?
Are you ready, I know you is
A heart of gold is more than any riches
I know you’re ready says the shine in your eyes
It’s brighter to me than the sun in the sky
Are you ready? You bet I am
Are you ready? You bet I am
Are you ready? You bet I am
Are you ready? You BET I AM


14/ Together Again

Well
Storms are a raging across the road
Just drive
We’re for the long haul—
In time
We’ll gather the harvest while we’re alive
We’re young
And we got it all –
In my eyes
Watch the troubled skies Fall
The storm is swallowed by the deep blue sea
And peace
On the breeze is so gentle
See
What in the world this all means to me
You know
It nearly drove us all mental
In these eyes
Love resides

For it won’t be long til we’re together again
Riding the writing puffing
White smoke on blue skies
The paints melted like the tears of the sun
Oozing profusely this
Madness from your kind eyes

Dreams
Come at me so vivid and mystical
But sleep
Is taking me nowhere
Respect
Is filling the room all reciprocal
And now
We’re headed for somewhere
Who knows when?
But... there’s no end

And it won’t be long til we’re together again
Singing sweetly to a
Crowd we’ve never seen
One thing’s for sure if we don’t try / so hard at love
We can rub our eyes raw but we
Won’t ever see the dream

One eyes the sun and the other’s the moon
This theories hanging by a string
We all may crash soon
But one thing’s for sure is if we’re all pure of heart
The light of love will seep
Until the dark explodes apart

It won’t be long til we’re together again
Riding the writing puffing
White smoke on blue skies
The paints melted like the tears of the sun
Oozing profusely this
Beauty in your eyes
Soon---- we’ll be together again
Singing sweetly to a
Crowd we’ve never seen
One thing’s for sure if we don’t try / so hard at love
We can rub our eyes raw but we
Won’t ever see the dream
Won’t ever see the dream
We’re gonna see the dream and live----


15/ Obelisk

My destiny is dreaming
For i have never seen
Your whole body screaming
Quivering so keen
Like a marble statue
Tied to an obelisk
Offered to break the taboo
Why don’t you take the risk?

I’m finally finally free
I finally finally see
That i can be me
It’s only up to me ---

I dream in frequencies
Encoded and unknown
And all the sequences --- are
A jumbled wild cyclone
Swirling with no restraint
Up and down my spine
Ten foot high in red paint
I read between the lines

What are you talking ‘bout?
What are you talking ‘bout?
What are you talking ‘bout?
What are you talking ‘bout now?

I don’t know and
Should i even care?
I don’t know and
Should i even share?
I don’t know and
Should i even care?
I don’t know and
Should i even share?
It’s coming fast oh ---
It’s coming fast oh
Its coming fast
Feel it in the air

And obelisk and dome
Ought to be as one
Won’t you take me home?
And be my setting sun
Start again at sun rise
And hold forever more
And the glint in our eyes
Will let our souls explore

Oh let our souls explore
I’m up for so much more
Show me what you’ve endured
Oh let our souls explore
