Track Name: Freedom Has No Measure
Somewhere In the ocean
There is no time and space
Freedom has no measure
And hatred has no place
Beauty is not envied
Or a cause for no despair
It simply is a feature
A part of life down there...

So be the downpipe, and pour down love
Or be the rain cloud, shower us with love
It flows to the rivers, and fills them up with love
And flows to the seas, the oceans full of dreams
We can teach these children to replant these seeds...

All around is ocean
But still we cannot find
The peace & love it offers
The prejudice aside
We can build a channel
To the hearts of all mankind
Send this world a message
Of real peace, love & pride...

So be the downpipe, and pour down love
Or be the rain cloud, shower us with love
It flows to the rivers, and fills them up with love
And flows to the seas, the oceans full of dreams
We can teach these children to replant these seeds...
Track Name: Morning Sun
I see so many new faces,
people be stuck in all the same familiar places
they got no money & they got no love,
but they love that money and they don't really want their honey
we all know what we should do,
pick up your bags and head on straight for the moon
forget those bags and just bring all your light,
we'll burn one down and hit the road left or right, so...

We're gonna leave with the Morning Sun,
and you can come along but you've gotta sing this song...

I see it all so much clearer,
everyman is just like looking in the mirror
we are all so controlled and contained,
with beetlenuts, alcohol or cocain
don't let the people go on thinking too much,
or we'll get off that crack and figure out whats just up
politics, churches, police all the same
with their profits, power and individual gain...

We're gonna leave with the Morning Sun,
and you can come along but you've gotta sing this song...
Track Name: Open Your Eyes
Look at us now my friends,
We've burnt our candles at both ends.
And used up all we can,
Are we animals or men...

It's not how you perform,
This world is not your stage.
It's not how you behave,
I will never be your slave.

Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes...

Look at me now my friend,
I am proud of who I am.
My light is shining bright again,
Still we offer up our hands...

But it's not how you perform,
This world is not your stage.
It's not how you behave,
I will never be your slave.

Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes.
Track Name: Shine On Everyone
Follow the birdsongs
they are watching over you
talk to the ocean
she knows just what to do, she knows just what to do
it's true...

Trust mother nature
the earth, moon & sun
don't be afraid of change
because a change is gonna come, change is gonna come
it's true...

You got to shine on everyone
just like the sun
just like the sun
share your light with everyone
just like the sun
just like the sun
on everyone...

Share with your mumma
she guides you through the dark
come to your pappa
he wants to be your rock, I want to be your rock
it's true...

You got to shine on everyone
just like the sun
just like the sun
share your light with everyone
just like the sun
just like the sun
on everyone...
