"Open Your Mind" 1. You say things are going fine. And you say we've got lots of time... Time to turn this world around. Meanwhile you don't seem to mind, the clever trap which was designed to lead you there, and hold you down. CHORUS - What can you understand with your head in the sand? Myths and Lies you will find, when you Open Your Mind. 2. Just believe what's in the news. No time for conflicting views. Can't hear what I'm trying to say. Money Power controls our fate, but you don't want that on your plate. It's easier just to look away. CHORUS - In a way it's not fair, to pretend it's not there. You don't need to be blind - I wish you'd Open Your Mind. Bridge - This is not your day, to look the other way. So much more to see, once you've found the key... All the Myths & Lies you will find, when you Open Your Mind. 3. You say things are going fine. And you say we've got lots of time... Time to turn this world around. Meanwhile you don't seem to mind, the clever trap which was designed to lead you there, and hold you down. CHORUS - What can you understand with your head in the sand? Myths and Lies you will find, when you Open Your Mind. © 2019 Steve Carlisle

"No One's Listening - Part 1" CHORUS - No One, No One's Listening. No One, No One's Listening. No One, No One's Listening now... Bridge 1 - Like a thief, I steal the time. Little gems for me to find. Timeless and creative mind set free ... Listen closely to your heart. Expectations pulled apart, and no rules to say what Art should be ... yeah! Bridge 2 - Suktion Kupp, Suktion Kupp . . . Rip-top flip-top, skittlee-boh, skittlee-boh . . . Ticklish girl, ticklish girl . . . Herndt na-Nerndt, Herndt na-Nerndt . . . CHORUS - No One, No One's Listening. No One, No One's Listening. And if so, is there really a sound? © 2019 Steve Carlisle

Losing Touch 08:52
"Losing Touch" 1. Gone far away from the things you love to do and the faces that mean so much to you to see. Pulled along by the currents of the day, A wave so strong, that it sweeps my dreams away from me. Run so much, I'm Losing Touch. 2. Where in the world will I ever find the time to explore half the things that cross my mind each day? Just keep up with the work that must get done. Don't want to lose all these moments as they run away. Right before my eyes, the time just flies... 3. No time for climbing hills. Survive to pay the bills. Dream about a house out in the country... Where nothing is for free - the house, the car, the new TV. Whatever would my wallet do without me? Money for this and more for that, blah-blah. I'm out of gas. My tire's flat, wah-wah. What will it take? Somebody make up my mind! 4. The things that I might see, if it were up to me, Wonders of this world can still astound you. And it's not over yet. No time to regret all the things I might not get around to. I'll get to this. I'll get to that, blah-blah. Somehow if I can find the time, wah-wah. It's out of hand. I think I am Losing Touch. Bridge 1 - I'll get to this. I'll get to that, blah-blah. Email or call or tweet or chat, blah-blah. So much is flying through my mind, wah-wah. Somehow, if I could find the time, wah-wah-wahh... Try to keep up with information over-fill. Really need some quiet time, to let the waters still... Bridge 2 - I'll find a peaceful place, where I can hide my face. Just re-charge awhile, with things that make me smile. Soon out of the silence, thoughts are finding me, reminding me, Hey, don't forget the calls and all the details turning inside of me. Of where to go, how much to pay, and how did it ever get this way? Put out fires with screeching tires. Just in time to lose my mind. Barely free to try to see the me I left behind... CHORUS - Oh, Losing Touch with myself. Yeah, this is what it feels like. Falling under the spell. Yeah, this is what it feels like. Bridge 3 - Driven to a place we don't quite understand From relaxing to completely out of hand. And then just bounce right back again ... Losing Touch with myself. 4. You say there's nothing crazy 'bout the way we live our lives. You don't see a problem until after it arrives. But this is not the life I choose, and that's what makes me think I'm Losing Touch ... 5. So, each and every morning, it's my chance to try again. Another chapter to the story, and another change of plans. Something I would love to do, but like the time it slips right through my hands. CHORUS - I'm Losing Touch with myself. Yeah, this is what it feels like. Falling under the spell. Yeah, this is what it feels like. You say there's nothing crazy 'bout the way we live our lives. © 2019 Steve Carlisle

"Peaceful Place" I'll find a Peaceful Place, where I can hide my face. Just re-charge awhile ... Take some time to smile today. I'll find my silence ... © 2019 Steve Carlisle

Part Of All 07:45
"Part Of All" 1. There are things that they won't tell you. Things they don't want you to know. Why should they reveal the spell to those who won't believe it's so? And so on it goes ... So we're going through the motions with the limits we have learned. We seem alone, detached, and separate, but that's not how the Worlds are turned. CHORUS - Great and Small. Part Of All. Water drop and water fall-in' down ... all around. Everything, and everyone, all connected, as the Sun shines out ... on Here and Now. 2. Losing, winning, ever-spinning, in a circle without end. Your religion, superstition, your imaginary friend. So concerned with you - you - you You're on a stage where you're the center of a Play where dreams come true. Give your God a job and gender. Wake each day, and look right through. CHORUS - Great and Small. Part Of All. Water drop and water fall-in' down ... all around. Everything, and everyone, all connected, as the Sun shines out ... on Here and Now. 3. We have all grown so accustomed to the myths that we've been told. From a place and time long gone now. Nightmares from the Days of Old. Bridge - All the ones you've loved and prayed for, smile beside your wishing well. You say your sins were bought and paid for. Join the club, or go to hell. Take the fake and make their vow. Questions, they will not allow. But you know what is True and Dear. Life is precious and it's here ... Here and Now. 4. There are things that they won't tell you. Things they don't want you to know. Why should they reveal the spell to those who won't believe it's so? CHORUS - Great and Small. Part Of All. Water drop and water fall-in' down ... all around. Everything, and everyone, all connected, as the Sun shines out ... on Here and Now. © 2019 Steve Carlisle

All Ways 06:51
"All Ways" 1. On along the River, 'til we reach the Open Sea. There to be together for Eternity. Drifting by the mountains, as they tower over you. Your eyes are filled with wonder as you float into the Sun. 2. Alive for just a moment. Someone, no one else could be. A wild and wondrous place, and you were there with me. The fragile gift of Life Remembered. Each one differently. The Life and Times and Dreams of mine and yours shall be as One. CHORUS 1 - All the Ways I see you, everywhere I turn. Every Face and every Space and Time to live and learn. Each new dance, a chance to Fly or Fall. Here is where we live to try it all. CHORUS 2 - All the things I do now, always I have done. Though sometimes, I feel so lost, yet All Ways, I Am One. We're all dying to know what's going on. Friends who once were here, and now are gone. 3. Now you might decide it's time to look inside yourself and find the things that mean the most to you today. See right through the lies around you. Try to share the truth you found. You tell them and they look the other way. It will put you to the test - Will you kindly do your best? 4. Bring some Reason to the table. Shine some Light upon the Fable. Wake up, if you think you're able to. Twisted Myths that Men created. So absurd, and so out-dated, Laugh Out Loud, you finally made it through! CHORUS 3 - All the Ways I see you, everywhere I turn. Every Face and every Space and Time to live and learn. Childish Fools would rule us for a day. But we have something, none can take away. Reprise - On along the River, 'til we reach the Open Sea. Here and Now and Ever, we will All Ways be as One. © 2019 Steve Carlisle
