I Dig You

I dig you, I dig love, I dig God and everything above
And it's really not that hard
I dig peace, I dig free, I dig us and everything I see
And it's really not that hard

We build walls to keep each other out
We missed our call - it's not what it's about
We draw lines that keep us far apart
Instead of taking time to listen to our hearts

I dig light, I dig rain, I dig hope 'cos everything can change

We build walls to keep each other out
We missed our call - it's not what it's about
Never take advice when you already know
Don't think twice - just let your love grow

I dig you, I dig love, I dig God and everything above
And it's really not that hard
I dig peace, I dig free, I dig us and everything I see
And it's really not that hard

We Are One

Hey brother, hey sister - hey Mister
Let's be one, we are one
No more war, close that door, let's do more
Let's be one, we are one

No more time for lies and deceit
Get out of line and up on your feet - yeah

Let's be one, we are one
Let's be one, we are one

Take a stand, do you understand? Yes we can
Let's be one, we are one
Let's make change, not rearrange, it might seem strange
Let's be one, we are one

Hey brother, hey sister - hey Mister
Let's be one, we are one
No more war, close that door, let's do more
Let's be one, we are one

Brain Dead

Brain Dead
So Brain Dead
Yeah Brain Dead
You're Brain Dead

You're a flat line baby
Turn a blind eye baby
You're a good sheep honey
Blending with the herd
Now go to sleep - believing every word

You don't think baby
And you don't blink baby
You live the lie
Where is your soul?
Never asking why - stick your head in a hole

Brain Dead
So Brain Dead
Yeah Brain Dead
You're Brain Dead

You live in fear baby
Refuse to hear baby
Your inner voice
Gotta  brain washed mind - cluttered with noise
Got yourself in a bind

Brain Dead
So Brain Dead
Yeah Brain Dead
You're Brain Dead

Beautiful Soul

Sometimes I feel so tired
But today I feel so wired
I look through my crystal ball
All I see is that wall

So many people are standing still
Drifting away they lost their will
I just want to shake them and give them ears
Wake up - stop living in fear

You are, you are a human, you are a beautiful soul
You are one with Creation, come on, get up - lets go...

Sometime I feel so cheated
But today I won't be defeated
I cut the chains and I break free
Open your eyes and you will see

You are, you are a human, you are a beautiful soul
You are one with Creation, come on, get up - lets go...

We are here to live and learn
Another life, another turn
Don't be afraid to shine
Don't be afraid to open your mind

You are, you are a human, you are a beautiful soul
You are one with Creation, come on, get up - lets go...

You are a beautiful soul

Give Me Love

Give me love, shine your light
Help me see it'll be all right
Take me by the hand and lead me home
Help me understand I'm not alone

Give me love

Give me peace, embrace my soul
Help me see what I already know
Take me by the hand and lead me home
Help me understand I'm not alone

Give me love

Give me love, shine your light
Help me see it'll be all right
Take me by the hand and lead me home
Help me understand I'm not alone

Give me love

Leaving Dystopia

I'm packing my bags (and) I'm out of here
Riches to rags... can't live in fear
This place is surreal... nobody cares
It has no feel... just blank stares

I'm tired of all the hate, I'm tired of all the dysfunction
I'm tired of being tired, I'm leaving Dystopia

I'm not a slave... so please go away
I won't behave ... I don't care what you say
I don't sleep walk... or crawl on my knees
I don't sheep talk... so you can be pleased

I'm tired of all the hate, I'm tired of all the dysfunction
I'm tired of being tired, I'm leaving Dystopia

I'm packing my bags (and) I'm out of here
Riches to rags... can't live in fear
This place is surreal... nobody cares
It has no feel... just blank stares

I'm tired of all the hate, I'm tired of all the dysfunction
I'm tired of being tired, I'm leaving Dystopia

Soldier of Love

I can be Jesus, I can be Buddha
I can be Krishna, I can be anybody I want to be...

I can be a prophet, I can be a seer
I can be a church, never live in fear
I can be privileged, I can be a king
I can be royalty, I can grow wings

I'm a soldier of love, the keeper of the light
I'm a soldier of love, the keeper of the light

I can be a priest, I can be a lord
I can be a guru, and never be bored
I can be a maji. I can be the Light
I can be knowing, I can make it right

I'm a soldier of love, the keeper of the light
I'm a soldier of love, the keeper of the light

I can be a savior, I can be Zeus
I can be a shaman, and un-tie my noose
I can be the sun. I can be Chi
I can be the Moon, and make your eyes see

I'm a soldier of love, the keeper of the light
I'm a soldier of love, the keeper of the light

Free

I just want to be left alone
I don' t need you after me
I know my way back home
So please go away and let me be

And I'll drink what I want to drink
I don't need your ball and chain
I'll think what I want to think
And I think you're all insane

I just want to be free, I just want to be me
Why is it hard to see? I just want to be free

What's up with all your rules?
Telling me it's time to breathe
You're nothing but a bunch of fools
I gotta go (yeah) it's time to leave

And I can go where I want to go
Don't stare and watch me eat
I know what I need to know
And by the way (yeah) - you're in my seat

I just want to be free, I just want to be me
Why is it hard to see? I just want to be free

Truth

I gotta be me and you need to be you
Just set your mind free and keep yourself true
Now don't fret baby - it's like a night out on the town
And don't be feelin' blue (no, no...)
Shine your light all around
Like I know you can do baby (yeah, I know you can do)

Now some people call me crazy for what I know
But their mind's a bit hazy cuz' they're vibrating too low
It's time to wake up baby and get on track
C'mon lets give it a try and take the truth back
And walk away from the lies (yeah)
Let me show you how to walk away... follow my guitar...

I gotta be me and you need to be you
Just set your mind free and keep yourself true
Now don't fret baby - it's like a night out on the town
And don't be feelin' blue (no, no...)
Shine your light all around
Like I know you can do baby (yeah, I know you can do)

Working Class Hero (Explicit Lyrics)

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they're telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
