SPELL


Hast thou fallen for the oldest trick
Cast in the mold of ancient spells
Cast like a net caught like a fish
To drag you through the seven hells
The mist gathers in the pale moonlite
The cloak of a shadow drifts into the night
They gather around not all is well
With voices and words they cast the spell
Faded jaded ultra sueded
On it sonnet baby bonnet
say it play it doncha spray it
Keep it secret or we'll flay it
Cool it school it doncha fool it
Shake it make it doncha fake it
East side west side in a mudslide
inside outside on a joy ride
We languish in our languid language
Cast by words whose meanings change
They hypnotize frozen in fear
All backwards upside down and deranged
In a secret place well out of sight
The cloak of a shadow drifts into the night
In secret they pledge to never tell
With voices and words they cast the spell
Faded jaded ultra sueded
On it sonnet baby bonnet
say it play it doncha spray it
Keep it secret or we'll flay it
Cool it school it doncha fool it
Shake it make it doncha fake it
East side west side in a mudslide
inside outside on a joy ride
I am awake and my eyes are wide open
Here is a spell which now will be spoken
The power of music resides in my bones
Here is a spell I will cast of my own
vayam kaamaye adhidaivika
vayam kaamaye adhidaivika
rise up take back your power
rise up this is the hour
rise like lions
rise like lions

Wish by Arcurus & Elizabeth Rose


I might wish for a better job
I might wish to be somewhere else
I might wish for a pile of cash
Or maybe even for an endless stash
And so I wished upon a star
I hope that star would make
Would make my wish come true
Make my wish come true
I got a big wish
And my wish is you
I wish for you to be mine
I wish for you to be mine
I want you I need you I wish for you now
I might wish to be president
I might wish just to pay the rent
I might wish to be someone else
Or maybe even just find myself
I hope that star would make my wish
Make my wish come true
I hope that star would see this through
Cause I want you
I got a big wish and my wish is you
I wish for you to be mine
I wish for you to be mine
I want you I need you I wish for you now
I made my wish now I've got you
That beautiful star made my wish come true
Now I've got you
I got a big wish and my wish is you
I wish for you to be mine
I wish for you to be mine
I want you I need you I wish for you now

LOVE DOES NOT ASK WHY


you ask me what I am thinking
but nothing is making sense
you are cold and then you come on strong
I am sitting on the fence
The heart will make it's choices
So listen to it's voice
Tells me what I'm knowing
What I might not want to face
Some things are left unspoken
Some things we can't erase
Or are we blind
Are we blind
I think I hear the whisper
Of a far and distant shore
Calling me to wander
Like nothing come before
Should I go or should I stay
Will I find my way
Or will I fall down broken
Is it up to me and you
The truth must now be spoken
Will our love see us through
Love love never asked us why
It give us wings and let's us fly
Love love never asked us why
It is all things, it will never die
A part of me is dying
With every passing day
There's no use for crying
It's just the price we pay
There's no way of knowing
But still we take the chance
And so we keep on going
Have I fallen from your grace
Some things are left unspoken
Some things we can't erase
Love love never asked us why
It give us wings and let's us fly
Love love never asked us why
It will break our heart
And make us cry

A THOUSAND BUTTERFLIES


the wings of a thousand butterflies
send ripples through both space and time
igniting all the wonder of what I will find
And though we get our fingers burned
It seems there should be lessons learned
Memories just fade away
Sometimes words cannot express
The full extent of my distress
When I see what we have done
And it's only just begun
Only only just begun
Only only just begun
It seems like it's a thousand years
Time it heals and sorrows clear
Inviting and exciting me to rise again
And so life can begin anew
It's up to me and up to you
You that this is true
If we want to see it through
Then we have to let it be
That's all we have to do
And as we cross the universe
Trying hard to make some sense
Leave behind the things that we don't need
And though it is a terrible mess
Living in rampant excess
Decay gives life so plant the seed
Sometimes words cannot express
The full extent of my distress
When I see what we have done
And it's only just begun
It really breaks my heart in two
I wonder what I'm gonna do
The Muki Muks who sit on high
We're waiting for them all to die
By the sword and by the gun
And it's only just begun
Only only just begun
Only only just begun

EVERY VOICE


every time you speak
the sound it reaches deep into my soul
and when I close my eyes
your voice gives rise to stories untold
Of faces that we dare not show
Places that we dare not go
Dangers that we dare not face
You lead me to that place
Lead me to that place
Into the fire into the flame
Ain't got no religion
Ain't got no shame
Into the fire
Into the flame
I stand without fear
Choose my own name
Every voice wants to be heard
Every thought and every word
An ending is an open door
Every choice is wanting more
The endless karmic chain we dance
I can't explain just one more chance
Till someday we let it go
And on that day you'll know
On that day you'll know
Into the fire into the flame
Ain't got no religion
Ain't got no shame
Into the fire
Into the flame
I stand without fear
Choose my own name
Every choice has consequence
Every dollar makes no sense
Every voice wants to be heard
A child sleeps here do not disturb.
Every single life you take
Every ladder every snake
Every voice will once aspire
To be that angel in the fire

RUN WILD


I'm gonna find my way Gonna make it back home
Come in from the ocean I won't be alone
You can shoot me down Try to make me feel small
Spin you're pretty head For no reason at all
You won't control me
I'll be what I want to be
Living in the past is really such a drag
you can lay down play dead pack up your travelling bag
you play innocent then you play nice
when I turn my back you come on cold as ice
you take it to the edge you might push it too far
you come from Venus and I come from Mars
but if you want to run you can come run with me
come on now let's be free
I feel I gotta run run run
Run on my wild side
Feel like running wild wild wild
Running like a wild child
Where am I running to
Use your imagination
What am I gonna do
Find emancipation
What am I gonna say
There is no obligation
Maybe I'll find a way
To end the frustration
Gonna run run wild gonna run run wild
Wild child wild child
I'm gonna find my way gonna make it back home
Come in from the ocean I won't be alone
Gonna rise above gonna get the last laugh
Come on little angel don't be so daft
You won't control me
I'll be what I want to be
I feel I gotta run run run
Run on my wild side
Feel like running wild wild wild
Running like a wild child

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME


Well I went down to the gate and stepped out
To go to a show but I was too slow
I was a little late bit I just hung around
To see what could be found
And if I could just turn back time
And make everything alright
I'd be there in a heat beat tonight
There was sounds of voices singing out
There was fun to be had everyone there was glad
Rainbows of colors were everywhere
With the sound of laughter filling the air
And if I could just remember
Then I'd write it down in song
Then I'd share it with you
And you'd sing along
We'd sing everything's going to be right alright
Everything's going to be fine tonight
Everything's going to be right tonight I am yours and you are mine
Well I went down to the gate and stepped out
to go to a show and what do you know
I had a date with fate she was there waiting around
A blanket there on the ground
We sang everything's going to be right alright
Everything's going to be fine tonight
Everything's going to be right tonight I am yours and you are mine

BED OF NAILS


I've swallowed the bitter pill
I'm feeling kind of ill
The water breaks below
This was of my own will
The blood begins to spill
They move in for the kill
The sheeple lay there still
The wolves they get there fill
The wolves they get there fill
It feels like I'm lying on a bed of nails
Hands are reaching out to grasp
They come back holding broken glass
I wake to another day
Break in another way
I move until I falter
Till I end up at the alter
Alone in paradise
With no home or vice
No time for thinking twice
I do it all again
I do it all again
It feels like I'm lying on a bed of nails
Hands are reaching out to grasp
They come back holding broken glass
The smallest flame of light
Chases back the night
Stand and hold it high
Lighting up the sky

SAY YES


Come out with me baby
Come on out and play
Your friends they might have told you not to
Don't throw this change away
We're going to have some fun
Though it might be dumb
Try or you'll never know
So won't you come with me
And baby then you'll see
A little crazy is good for the soul
Let's forget the things they told us
Let's find out what is real
I ain't buying what they sold us
Let me tell you how I feel
Say yes, say yes, say yes
Cause baby I'm a hurricane
Say yes, say yes, say yes
Cause girl you're driving me insane
you're more than just my baby
you're more than just my friend
I hope you get this feeling
The message that I send
We're going to have some fun
Though it might be dumb
Try or you'll never know
So won't you come with me
And baby then you'll see
A little crazy is good for the soul
Let's forget the things they told us
Let's find out what is real
I ain't buying what they sold us
Let me tell you how I feel
Say yes, say yes, say yes
Cause baby I'm a hurricane
Say yes, say yes, say yes
Cause girl you're driving me insane
I look deep into your heart
You look deep into my eyes
You know that I'm the one you want
You know I'll never tell you lies.
Let's forget the things they told us
Let's find out what is real
I ain't buying what they sold us
Let me tell you how I feel


SUNSHINE IN THE RAIN


I see sunshine in the rain
I see triumph in the pain
I see starlight in the night
everything is shiny bright
I see sunshine in the rain
I hear laughter in the air
Smiling faces everywhere
I hear music ringing out
Makes me want to scream and shout
I hear laughter in the air
It was the summertime
We were feeling fine
When you jumped right out of bed
You said I've had enough
Of the same old stuff
And it's getting to my head
It's getting to my head
I got a pocket full of dreams
But then nothing's what it seems
Cause no matter where you go
You are there now don't you know
Got a pocket full of dreams
It was the jungle heat
That made us indiscreet
Or was it something that I said
You said I've had enough
Of the same old stuff
And it's getting to my head
it's getting to my head
I see sunshine in the rain
I see triumph in the pain
I see starlight in the night
Everything is shiny bright
I see sunshine in the rain
Sunshine sunshine sunshine sunshine
Sunshine in the rain
Sunshine sunshine sunshine sunshine
Sunshine in the rain
