Lives (LIVE) 05:03
I've never been to the moon. I hope I'll go someday soon so I can stand on her face and get perspective on this beautiful place. We are so lucky to be shielded invisibly from our star's hot hot fire. I'm so grateful I ain't on the pyre. How many nights? How many days? So many lives. So many ways. Why do we argue, and fight, and battle? The sky is our breath. Why do we doddle? What happened to peace & to love? I am grateful to the star above. How many nights? How many days? So many lives. So many ways. Our systems, they don't feel steady I wonder if we're ready... I don't know where I am going, but I know that I'm growing. How many nights? How many days? So many lives. So many ways.

I think someone's trying to trick us. I think they're trying to take the forests. I think they've forgotten what's still here, what came before us, and I think its time we sing in chorus: Stop! Stop, now. Oh wouldn't it be neat, if the sound of our feet, could take away all this greed? Oh wouldn't it be neat? Stop! Stop, now. Oh wouldn't it be nice, if we could all just sit, peacefully? Standin' oh so free. Come on and do it together, its all we've got. Come on and do it together, or we might get caught. Come on and do it together!! I think someone's trying to trick us. I think they're trying to take the forests. I think they've forgotten what's still here, what came before us, and I think its time we sing in chorus: Stop! Stop, now.

Waves (LIVE) 03:44
Waves roll in. Waves roll out. I need one so strong that I can cast my doubt into the sea. Standing free on the shore. Love surrounds me. If I were a bird, I wonder how high I'd fly... If I were a tree, would I compete with those above me? If I were a hue, I wonder what colour I would choose? If I were a cup o' coffee, would I boil and wash away these morning blues? Waves roll in. Waves roll out. I need one so strong that I can cast my doubt into the sea. Standing free on the shore. Love before me. If I were the stars, would I shine, would I shine bright? If I was the moon, what colour would my gloom be? Oh I know what I am, and I know what I'm not. All these memories, are just dreams forgot. Yeah I know what I am, and I know what I'm not. All these memories, are just dreams forgot. Waves roll in. Waves roll out. I need one so strong that I can cast my doubt into the sea. Standing free on the shore. Love surrounds me.

Oh you are entitled to be you. And I, I am entitled to be me. Yes and we are respectively who we are and I challenge us to be exactly who we are. All I can give is this... I accept who you are! So stop apologizing! And I.. I'm done with mesmerizing. I'd like to live a simple life. You, you like to run free. And I, I like to run wiiiiiiild. Oh if we are gonna spend this life runnin' then I challenge us to be exactly who we ought to be. All I can give is this. I accept who you are! So stop apologizing! And I... I'm done with mesmerizing. I'd like to live a simple life.
