Divinity These hands I can play this drum And on these two legs I can walk on this earth Sharing space with the trees Alimentation of all of my needs We share this earth with the trees Think of their needs We share this earth with the trees we have to think of their needs In the time that it takes to prepare Gifts of love for the ones that I care In the forever moments we share Expanding the time we have together Stretching the time we have together We share the sky with the birds We share the sea with the fish We share the earth with the trees We have to think of their needs Moving forwards and backwards through time Sharing knowledge that’s neither yours or mine Separate from cultural design We’re living in Divinity One ocean, we’re living in it One life form, we are being it One life, we’re sharing that together One planet, we’re walking on it One ozone, we’re breathing in it We’re sheltering under one life One life We are one life With everything We share the sea with the fish We share the earth with the trees We share the sky with the birds We’re walking on one planet in Divinity You and me, me and you and everything that’s breathing You and me, me and you and everything that takes up space here We are shariing this planet We are living together on it We could be one Surely we are one Divinity

Fundamentalism, doesn't matter what it is, just means people will suffer. Together we can all stand as one And live with respect and honour Today let us all pray together Remember our children are watching Weapons of Destruction, doesn't matter whose they are, just mean people will suffer. How can we live our lives in pain and anger when we could share in love together?

Kiss Goodbye Wipe the slate clean, make a new beginning with everyone you know Kiss goodbye, to yesterdays arguements put them in a balloon let them float to the sky Today is the day for moving on Yes, you’ve heard me that the time is here and now We’ve got the choice to keep on growing our love Until each and every one has what they need to thrive . Please don’t let anything get in the way, Don’t let your old and warn out conditioning get in the way chorus Listen carefully to what your heart tells you is true it's the only thing you can rely on, for advice on what to do every thing that happens has gone, has gone The most wonderful feeling I know, is the one of moving on, (Forward) brothers and sisters, (Forward) hear me when I call out to you (Forward) Forget the hands of time and move to a place where we can… chorus Bridge Can we see clearly? Listen deeply? Be the people we would want to know? Create our own reality from a place of freedom With heart that are open to the love in everyone Black brown white or grey Straight bi trans gay Whoever your God is What ever you believe in We all fit into some bodies category And if we’re going to live to gether we’ve got to find a way If we’re going to listen to each other we’ver got to make today the day to

birthing life, our crystal ocean earth’s body, rich in liquidity salty tides tracing sandy fingers sticky on wet skin animals, birds, fish, & insects congregating to drink, to be family sweet droplets on tongue and beak tree whales break though soil and sky diving branches drenched with rain falling back to muddy pools where sparkling rays flash fine sprays misty rainbows of light humanity swims in elemental rivers expanding ripples of ancestry i am my grandmothers egg and waited in my mothers waves until the juices of my father burst life with ocean, with moon, with rhythm, with blood inky wetness sinks deep intuitive forces, receptive emotive cleansing flooding evaporating

Befriend me Give me your hearts and I'll show you mine You showed me the love of friends though you didn't know me Just the laughter in my eyes When you wear your smile Rolling off my skin As I watch you take me in I bump and start cause it's new to me Can't help but find my way Befriend me As you open your door to me A book to read and a place to sleep Something to eat and someone to talk to As we sing, dance and pray together (it) makes me think hard Befriend me As you lie beside me And hold me close on the dance floor Can't help but feel my feelings rise Unfolding your story between street lamps and kisses I want to say more but it keeps me warm inside Befriend me Kiss me goodbye I don't want to let go With time so short and sweet So powerful and so wise I'm changed forever now Can you feel my love do you know You are here with me When I close my eyes
