Track Name: Deeper
A love like ours is like a garden
Once it's growing there's the no stopping
The sun and the moon are your eyes
The world still spins around after we die
So treat your lover's heart real gently
Treat her like the queen she should be
Life is a sacred, wondrous thing
Feel the warmth and joy that her love brings
Cast away your pains and sorrows
We're here today and gone tomorrow
Weep not for the loss you feel
Just love deeper and deeper you will heal
Track Name: Rolling Green
Dew and daffodils beneath my bare feet
Me and my love there is nothing as sweet
As your voice calling to me
'Cross the fields of rolling green
Beautiful flower, Aphrodite goddess
Like a child I lay my head on your chest
We are born a thousand times
Within this one short life
Despite this mad world I'm feeling strangely free
There's a new love growing inside of me
Close your eyes and count to ten
Baby come and find me again
Track Name: Save the Trauma for Nobody's Mama
Pulled the plug the other day
Made my Internet go away
Couldn't take it, had to stop
I'm so tired of these fuckin cops
How far can your badge carry you?
How many do you shoot for fun?
How can you even look us in the eye and say
you're "so surprised" you "never, ever meant to hurt anyone"?
You're not fooling us
Systemic violence, state sanctioned
Impoverished are enemy one
Protect the wealth of psychopaths
Trauma is the torch they pass
Track Name: Madam Mushroom Said to Me
Madam Mushroom said to me,
"It isn't love if you don't fee free"
(don't you feel free?)
You and I we try to be happy in Earth reality
(oh it's so hard)
Should've taken a bite long ago
Shouldn't have taken it so damn slow
Should've taken a bite long ago
Why can't I dissolve? Why can't I be clouds anymore?
I think that I may be losing my mind
Oh lawd dee dee dee dee dee
Oh my my!
Madam Mushroom said to me,
"Only fools crave self-pity"
(so funny, so sad)
Laughing at this human form
Oh how we vex, oh how we adorn
(so tired, so glad)
Track Name: My Love for You Is Everywhere
You are allowed to live with ease
Don't let them tell you otherwise
They will delude, they will elude
They will want your compromise
My dove take the greatest of care
My love for you is everywhere
But experiences are free
Don't let them try to sell you one
This precious life is yours and you're
Bright and beautiful as the sun
My dove take the greatest of care
My love for you is everywhere
All you seek soon you will find
Arms and heart open wide
Track Name: Two Paths
Don't waste one moment more
Your life is running away
Two paths that you can choose
Burn bright or fade away
Hear her calling from the mountain top
Hear her calling coming for you
It's love babe or it's death
So which one will you choose?
Do you follow your own dreams
Or do you scheme for queens?
If something beckons you
Then find out what it means
Don't you hesitate 'cause all you have is now
Don't you as why or when
When you should be asking how
You can't live life without regret
So make sure most of it is well spent
