Track Name: Wise Men Say
WISE MEN SAY
-Mason Lucas


When the rage is seething I'm breathing
And remembering my love for logic and reason
And intuitions a wish to believe that I am
Only one of infinite fish in the sea
And if you choose to listen to me
I might tell you what my beautiful sisters see
And all my brothers are doubles of me
We come and go as we please in the mystery
Some times we do it so wistfully
Sometimes we do it so blissfully
Gently we avoid trickery
True power comes from sensitivity

Wise men say

I hold my dreams for survival
In the challenge of the myriad invisible rivals
Seeking the truth amid slander and libel
It's symbolic like all of our lives revivals
Pile it on clear it off
Tabula rasas' cacophony is never lost
Only our names are embossed
LIke the cloaks we don to keep out the frost
My intentions were clear
Before I set foot here in the the atmosphere
Through the portal no mortal is mere
Manipulating airwaves to cast out fear
From the silence between the notes
I hope that the ghost will remember to quote
The wisdom kids come to elope and emote
Cause we're all in the same old boat

Wise men say

Live it up and joke when you're close enough
To call me on a phone made of rope and coconuts
It's all I need to see the clouds open up
And feel the sun shining like a token of
Your affection and your gratitude
Helping me out to refine my attitude
At this latitude there's never a platitude
Silence is golden chasing right after you

Wise men say
Track Name: Fios
FIOS
-Mason Lucas

After all the slight of hand has blinded man to his heart
What can he hope to be within this life if it's so short
Oh Angelie forgive me for I knew what I was doing was wrong
Humanity eluded me for a moment and then the moment was gone
How could I close my eyes and think that it would just go away
But the love that we share is forever in our song
And it guides us home to grace

I'm sending a letter on the wind so it gets there on time
Following currents ensuring endurance so fine
Telling the stories of all of the lovers of life
Sharing the narrative sharing what's yours and what's mine

And I make amends for the tens of my acts that were wrong
Crawling to walking to flying and writing my song
That's how it goes when you're growing and rolling along
Destiny's testing me making the road that I'm on

And the love that we share is forever in our song

Wishing for things and events to commence invents will
So we overstand and make plans in a land that stands still
Selecting perspective directives connecting the thrills
And all the realities get to reflect what we build

And the love that we share is forever in our song

And it guides us home to grace
Track Name: One Limitless Day
ONE LIMITLESS DAY
-Mason Lucas

We gotta fact the fear that's in the dark of misunderstandings
We gotta trust our feelings when we're reeling and stumbling from the landing
I love my life I won't lie I chose the point where I'm standing
I offer this for your bliss if that's what you're demanding

One limitless day in the land of love

As I look I see and open book of tragedy and humor
A raise my wrist as an optimist amidst the rumors
You cant refute the fruit of conscious consumers
I polish it off with no loss when we author our future

One limitless day in the land of love

I got the feeling that I'm dealing with the appealing mode
With the parameters that make the calendar explode
Into obsolescence and blessing the adolescent souls
Here we go
I got a message of personal revelation told
To me in a vision and thus my mission will unfold
Everybody's got their karma paving out their own road
Sparkling with the love they sow
Earth citizens fit into the rhythm so
You can harmonize with your tribe when they let go
Just because I said so you can find your own flow
Change it from slackness to statuesque new clothes
To every nation every city every rap show
I got my inspiration from Shipibos and Arapahoes
Rolling out on skateboards sailboats and back-hoes
Lo and behold

One limitless day in the land of love
So let's live it like it matters because that's enough

Whether or not we are who we think we're supposed to be
I pull you close to me
Because the world is full of potential friends who act like enemies

When you look deep inside you'll find you're guided right to the true pride
Celestial mountains meet the earth first where our hearts reside
Track Name: Legends
LEGENDS
-Mason Lucas

Blissful sounds of this creation
Hit the mode of this vibration
Crystal nodes of education
Constitute this incantation

So enormous and so grand
Like all the songs of distant lands
That I love but don't understand
As I drift like grains of sand

Shining light of your soul
Warms my heart when winds are cold
Where fires blaze we care for coals
Legends long for their tales to be told

So enormous and so grand
Like all the songs of distant lands
That I love but don't understand
As I drift like grains of sand

Long ago the stories were written
On the canyon walls

So enormous and so grand
Like all the songs of distant lands
That I love but don't understand
As I drift like grains of sand
Track Name: Seasons of the Sky
SEASONS OF THE SKY
-Mason Lucas

Sunshine in your eyes
Invites me to come inside
To touch the other side
And feel the wealth of the seasons of the sky
And get to know myself better through you and I

Shakti's got her Shiva
I've got bhakti in my kiva
For the 'locks and all believers
Who respect the master weaver
Energetic elements flow through the filaments
Infinity makes me smile

So I sing to this land
With all the gratitude that I can command
Acts of love fill my plan
When I reach out to take hold of your hand

Though we might play it cool
We'll walk the wheel like fools
To the tune of endless renewal
Shining like a timeless jewel
Mists are rolling in continually from oceans
Without names

So I sing to this land
With all the gratitude that I can command
Acts of love fill my plan
When I reach out to take hold of your hand
Track Name: Flows
FLOWS
-Mason Lucas

There's a river that flows right through your heart into mine let's start
With a strong foundation of love and respect we can select
Attitudes and trajectories passion and bliss more than a kiss
It's a connection to benevolent lips and expression of soul more than
Someone to hold on a journey of life we let go of control

Walk by my side if you're inclined to come along for the ride
With open hearts and open minds we can define the definition of good times
I can honor you you can honor me in a partnership where we're free to believe
Taking the time to share our lives together naturally

There's a golden road where the colors explode into dazzling brilliance it's a beautiful show
But I'd like you to know all about my intentions before we go
Cause we can go fast or we can go slow but what really matters as the energy grows
Is sharing our truth like we share our song while we're harmonizing all night long
And into the next day and through next week and into the winter and the summer so sweet
Though time's an illusion that we can't keep like waking up when you fall asleep
Return to the source of love and light our mutual divinity guides us tight

On a higher realm where that's beyond our sight
Waking up in your love just feels so right
And when I look around and I compare
All that I see to what we share
It's all the same indivisible soul
Many manifestations a thousand fold
Beggars in the street who seem unique
Like the girl with the tears streaming down her cheeks
Masters and slaves who will never behave
Racing for the dollar sign race to the grave
Just to come back and do it all again
While the mountaintop monks master acts of zen
Asceticism's a gem if one can contend while some gotta be
Content with the page and the pen

Some people want to agree
Or debate about the fine points definitely
It's a worthy pursuit seeking the truth
All roads converge along the route
Of elusive consensus the absolute
So click your heels or knock your boots
Snap your fingers or play your flute
Or do whatever you like to do that elevates you

I'm only saying what I feel
After careful reflection the thoughts congeal
On the real I'm taking the time to realize what life reveals
But don't believe me you've got to see
This for yourself just to justify these words I speak over little melodies
And the harmonious homilies
Track Name: Canoa
CANOA
-Mason Lucas

Underneath this tree
My canoe floats free
Full of love tell my sister
Tell my sister it's full of love

Debajo de este arbol
Mi canoa esta
Lleno con amor dile mi cuñada
Dile mi cuñada es lleno con amor

Hai la lai la la la la lai lai

यसको रुख को तल
मेरो डुग च
प्रेम प्यक ए च वहीनी कबर गार
बहीनी कबर गार प्रेम प्यक ए च

Wa xomi namara
Nuku nonte rakaku
ichabu bu buchoya
Mi tsabwu yuiwu
Icha bu bwihonu

The jungle put the man to the test
A quest to bless and effervesce the very best that he can manifest
Or acquiesce to the stress of the rest of the modern mess
A lot of this started like a game of chess
Explaining this is like an exercise living lives
Side by side with the tribes who will never die
Though the brevity of time seems clever like rhymes and punch-lines
That I integrate and memorize
Life's lessons will flow like tides
And the rest we will bury in the estuaries semper fi
Why ask why when the question is who
And what are we doing with our lives
Very few question the validity of what they do
While the universe's finger is pointing at you
So do you want to ride through the sky
Looking at the world through the third eye
Wondering who am I
Harmonize rhymes when we synchronize linking eyes
Thinking I was feeling the drum beat to sympathize
Track Name: Live on the Outside
LIVE ON THE OUTSIDE
-Mason Lucas

Fire eyes will you settle my soul
On this wildest of journeys that I've ever known
I've been high out of my mind finding my truth and my home
Fire serenades us fire pervades us licking my face to the bone

Ocean's breadth will you quench my thirst when my eyes are red
Wash my head tricking rippling or crash instead it's your prerogative
Pounding the pebbles to sand
Concealing the mysteries of sunken lands

Mountain wind I'm so glad I've found you again
Or did you find me soaring with the roaring cliffs of your longevity
Breezes make it easier to breathe
Chasing my inner child through piles of leaves

Lands of earth my gratitude is bountiful just like your worth
I hope that I can repay my debt to you with little words
Like the mother's breast you provide
So beautiful to live on the outside
Track Name: Undertow
UNDERTOW
-Mason Lucas

Look up at the moon
Don't take your gaze away too soon
Stare up at the stars
But only if you want to look that far
Share your songs with your friends
Light a fire and dance with them again
Walk the the path that you prefer
Pay back the karmic debts that you've incurred

Forever is farther than we cast our stones or act alone
Together we are more powerful than the undertow

Dance on through the night
But only if it really feels alright
Drums echo through the town
They build it up or they can burn it down
Dreams formulate our lives
And set the tone for what we will decide
They are the root that feeds the world
Long before our flags become unfurled

Forever is farther than we cast our stones or act alone
Together we are more powerful than the undertow

Run down the jungle road
With every aspiration you control
Breathe life in as you go
When you feel like you're ready to explode
Tranquility awaits
'Tis the sure and not the swift that win this race
Honor the promise to return
But only when you feel that it's your turn

Forever is farther than we cast our stones or act alone
Together we are more powerful than the undertow
Track Name: Otro
OTRO
-Mason Lucas

Drops of sunlight fall and collect in pools around our heads as we will
Walk the ancient forests of our dreams the landscape shifting around me
Tell me all your secrets I am worthy of the mysteries
Let's dance this life as mirrors of each other speaking silently
The laws we lay between us are the scaffolding that we repeal
To follow architecture of perfection's sectors we reveal
Illuminate our manuscripts as we stand and lick the mass appeal
You have to believe in what you feel to extrapolate what's truly real

I set my foot on the rock of tradition
Only to find it change position
My recollection and recognition
Will serve to strengthen my volition
In times that are so strangely familiar
That which makes you stronger just might thrill you

Way out so far that we threw the map away
Open to all of the possible paths that lay
Forewarned of all of the tangible traps that lay
Ok now planning to drift like castaways

I set my foot on the rock of tradition
Only to find it change position
My recollection and recognition
Will serve to strengthen my volition
In times that are so strangely familiar
That which makes you stronger just might thrill you

One man walks a dark road to come into the light
And ignite the spark of his insight
Upon said journey the twists in the path might
Sunder the resolve of an unexpected neophyte
The teachings of the masters surpass most hearing and sight
And provide the schematic that shines bright
It's a beacon of truth that will hit the heights
With dedication and resolve it will guide you right
One woman contemplating herself
Leaves the past to pass to improve her health
With no proof but trust and her spiritual wealth
And cerebral stimulation in the mysteries delve
Much deeper than people think that anything dwells
A transcendent realm where the sick get well
Cultivating energies and refine the spell
And fill the fontanelle

I set my foot on the rock of tradition
Only to find it change position
My recollection and recognition
Will serve to strengthen my volition
In times that are so strangely familiar
That which makes you stronger just might thrill you
Track Name: Lullaby
LULLABY
-Mason Lucas

Dozens of birds turn around
Petals of flowers settle down
Springtime will sing to it's sound
And let us know
This is life

The rippling waters fall
Reflecting the clouds' shroud stall
Echoes of ancestors' call
And let us know
This is life

Drink in the light that shines
Relaxing the words of my mind
Go back to the source of all time
And let us know
This is life

All of the stars shine on
Baby's asleep with his mom
Drifting in peace when this
Moment comes
This is life
