Track Name: People Say
Who cares if they think you’re wrong
or you’re right
Because they don’t know you, and they don’t know what you fight

It’s a simple thing
It’s a simple thing to say
It’s a simple game.
It’s a simple game to play


You don’t care what the people say, people say
You’re just doing whatever you feel is right.

You don’t care what the people say, people say.
You’re just doing whatever you feel is right.

Today, today, today.


Who cares whatever they’ve got planned
Because you know that you hold your fate, your fate in the palm of your hand.

It’s a simple thing
It’s a simple thing to say
It’s a simple game.
It’s a simple game to play


You don’t care what the people say, people say
You’re just doing whatever you feel is right.

You don’t care what the people say, people say.
You’re just doing whatever you feel is right.

Today, today, today.

Oh what have they done now,
what have they done to anger,
anger you.

Oh what can you do now,
What can you do to speak the,
speak the truth.

If it’s too much to hear,
You’ve got the right to choose.
The right, the right to choose.
To tell them you don’t care.


You don’t care what the people say, people say
You’re just doing whatever you feel is right.
You don’t care what the people say, people say.
You’re just doing whatever you feel is right.

We don’t care what the people say, people say
We’re just doing whatever we feel is right

Today, today, today.
Track Name: Ode to the Ocean
Oh sweet water, cleanses my soul.
I sit beside her and gaze into her depths below.

She moves like forever,
following the moon.

Her song is a feather,
drifting in on the wind to you.

Oh I want to surrender, to her waves
cause then, I would never
leave this shore again.

Oh sweet water, you are the one
that holds us together and lets the rivers run.

You move with the weather,
following the tune of life
worse or better,
written whichever way you choose.

Oh let’s just surrender, to her waves
cause then, we would never
leave this shore again.
Track Name: My Way Home
My Way Home
Written by Micaela Kingslight © 2019


In the dark,

I was searching

for a sign to guide my way back

to the place,

my heart is reaching.

Then I found that all I can see

is a far away light.


I just need a light

I just need a light

and won’t you be my light

to find my way home.


In the day,

I was reaching

for the clouds

to teach me to stay

on the path that leads me onward

Then I found that all I can see

is a far away light.


I just need a light

I just need a light

and won’t you be my light

to find my way home.
Track Name: Change That Tune
Dear sister, look at all the weight that’s in your head
carrying on for way to long under the weight of your own sad song, it’s time to find another one to sing.

Oh dear sister, sister
don’t you listen, listen
to those voices that tell you
you’re not good enough to do
the things you want to do,
it’s time to change the tune.

Dear brother, how long has it been since you’ve seen the sun?
You trade your life for a dollar sign,
who’s gonna care when you’re out of time?

You’re not the only one I see.

Oh dear brother, brother
don’t you bother, bother
with those voices that tell you
you’re not good enough to do the
things you want to do,
it’s time to change that tune.

Dear mother, look at all the wisdom in your eyes.
The time has come to change our ways
make it through to better days,
and mother we are one under your sky.

Oh dear mother, mother
don’t you bother, bother
with those voices that tell you,
you’re not good enough to do
the things you want to do,
it’s time to change that tune
Track Name: When the Light Shines Out
Forgive my ignorance
I didn’t know, I didn’t know.
When you smiled at me,
I didn’t think that it
would cause me to lose my mind.

When the light shines out,
my heart made me doubt
if I ever had a mind at all.

Forgive my silence,
when it was over and done.
When you set me free,
I didn’t think that it would
cause me to fall behind.

When the light shines out,
my heart made me doubt
if I ever had a mind at all.

Forgive me for falling like a stone
into the water of loves game.
But I won’t forgiveness for rising up to meet the pain.

When the light shines out,
my heart made me doubt
if I ever had a mind at all.
Track Name: Lady Lost Her Mind
She wasn’t bothered by the boys or the girls
she ate a slice of pie with the side of the world
and when they said she could be anything,
all that she said was, “I want to be me.”

Now she’s lost, she’s lost, she’s lost
lost in time.
Now she’s lost, she’s lost, she’s lost
lost in time.

How high do you fly,
when you’ve lost, lost your mind.

He was the one that she loved,
he brought her flowers every day of the week until she had enough.

And when he said, we can be anything
all that she wanted to do was believe.

Now she’s lost, she’s lost, she’s lost
lost in time.

Now she’s lost, she’s lost, she’s lost
lost in time.

How high do you fly,
when you lost your mind.

She took her clothes off in the street.
She waved her hands in the air,
showed the bottoms of her feet.
Then when they said, “you can’t do that thing.”
All that she wanted to do was to sing.
Now she’s lost, she’s lost, she’s lost
lost in time.

Now she’s lost, she’s lost, she’s lost
lost in time.
How high do you fly,
when you lost your mind.
Track Name: Back to the River
I am flowing now,
I am flowing now.
It just took one hour to be free.

I am flowing now,
I am flowing now.
It just took, one hour to be free.

The thoughts that spin my mind,
flow away at their own time
and I’m back where I belong.
Back to the river where we came from.

Let’s go back to the river,
let’s go back to the river,
let’s go back to the river where we came from.

Let’s go back to the river,
let’s go back to the river,
back to the river where we came from.

I am living now,
I am living now.
It just took all my power to be free.

I am living now,
I am living now.
It just took all my power to be free.

The worries on my mind,
now can only make me smile.
Cause I know that all the while,
their part of the river where we came from.

Let’s go back to the river,
let’s go back to the river,
let’s go back to the river where we came from.

Let’s go back to the river,
let’s go back to the river,
back to the river where we came from.
Track Name: How Many Lifetimes
Down in the deep, underneath the sea
we never noticed it before.
There lived a being beyond belief
stretching from shore to shore.

And the people said, it cannot be true
we can never see the end.
And the people said, it must be a ruse
because our budget’s in the red.

There’s a lot to love and a lot to hate
but what do we really know?
There’s a lot to learn everything in the world
but how many lifetimes must it take?

It’s a story told many times before
that it doesn’t mean much anymore.
About a universe, looking at itself
but the mirror’s only cracked and distorted.

And the people said, it cannot be true
we can never see the end.
And the people said, it must be a ruse
because our budget’s in the red.

There’s a lot to love and a lot to hate
but what do we really know?
There’s a lot to learn everything in the world
but how many lifetimes must it take?
Track Name: 1943
It was morning, 1943 in the summertime
when they heard, the news he was coming home
after all these years in the war
he was a captain of the infantry
until the day when he saw too much.

Nothing works and nothing does the trick,
like coming home after being away for years.
When he came home that evening
he didn’t know where he was.

Every day, he sat in the corner
staring at the wall,
wouldn’t speak, not even to say hello
to his mother as she stood
there in the doorway,
she began to sing him a song,
she’d sing to him at night.

Nothing works and nothing does the trick
like a song that your mother sang in your early years.
When he looked up that moment,
he remembered who she was.

Nothing works and nothing does the trick,
like coming home after being away for years.
When he came home that evening
he remembered who he was.
Track Name: Breathe
Breathing in, sowing seeds
we plant a garden with the air we breathe.

Mother earth knows what she needs
and all the time she’s breathing me.
Breathing out all the beliefs
that stumble our feet and make us fall
Father Sun shines on the leaves
and all the trees are breathing in.

This is how we breathe together,
breathe together this is how we breathe.

Breathing in the love that we see
for the people we meet to share the air we breathe.
All the world sings a melody
and sings so sweet as we’re breathing free.

Breathing out the darkness and hate
that all relate to holding on
Sister Moon only wants us to play
in the darkness that comes before the dawn.

This is how we breathe together,
breathe together this is how we breathe.

Breathing in, sowing seeds
we plant a garden with the air we breathe.

Mother earth knows what she needs
and all the time she’s breathing me.
Track Name: We Are The Water
We are the water and the water will rise,
We are the water and the water will rise.
Hear the sound of the Mother’s cries,
we are the water and the water will rise.

We are the land and the land is free,
we are the land and the land is free.
all the animals and all the trees,
we are the land and the land is free.

We are the people and the people will lead,
we are the people and the people will lead.
All my relations we’ve got to believe,
we are the people and the people will lead.

We are the water and the water will rise,
We are the water and the water will rise.
Hear the sound of the Mother’s cries,
we are the water and the water will rise.
