Track Name: People of the Earth
People of the Earth - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

People of the earth you are strong
People of the air carry us on
People of the water noble born
People of the fire ignite your song

And all our yesterdays are dead and gone
They're sailing on and
Tomorrow's solace is illusory
A fleeting promise but
Old armor falls away and horses break apart the harness
Heroes rise above reality because they're honest

People of the earth you are strong
People of the air carry us on
People of the water noble born
People of the fire ignite your song

Like smoke rings falling through the epilogue
Move along to the next chapter of the travelogue
Now we move like the demigods
Hercules removing the absurdity from every yard
From every tenement because that is my temperament
The story's written for me so I have to keep on telling it
All of the elements cleverly delve into relevance
It burns the tip of my tongue
Hotter than a peppermint

And all our yesterdays are dead and gone
They're sailing on and
Tomorrow's solace is illusory
A fleeting promise but
Old armor falls away and horses break apart the harness
Heroes rise above reality because they're honest

And on the first day I wrote the first page
I had to gather my thoughts together in the worst way
Wondering what the people on the planet earth say
Basking in the aftermath of capital birthdays
Do we credit the intelligence or notice the blemishes
And say it bears resemblance to any false premises
The wise revise and incise the lies
Cast aside the guise that will hypnotize
And picture this I keep on kickin' this prediction list
It might be supposition but it's totally fiction-less
It's like reality and dreams in a synthesis
You can ask Icarus what might be the impetus
For smoke rings falling through the epilogue
They frame every syllable children won't you step along
This is our time you know we'll never do it wrong
You know I love you 'cause I mention it in every song

How long we'll never know
Life continues to be incredible

I flow like the river 'cause it runs in my veins and
I'm tall like the trees that supported my frame
I'm on a roll like the thunder that is bringing the rain
Through the canyons we stand on rough terrain
Once upon a time there was a planet like ours
A living vision was the mission looking up at the stars
In this position our decisions' disposition was large
Indivisible family is what we are
Every color every element we are the land
The stones in the sand are the bones in my hand
And the spirits of the forest write the songs for the band
Liberty and love is what we understand
Once upon a time there was a planet like ours
A living vision was the mission looking up at the stars
In this position our decisions' disposition was large
Indivisible family is what we are

How long we'll never know
Life continues to be incredible
Track Name: Mikazuki (Halfmoon)
Mikazuki (Halfmoon) - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

All along the road we travel on the stars will be our guide
And we live within the wisdom deep inside

And the half-moon sings a lullaby to people by the fireside
Mikazuki sings to children who dream tranquility for I and I

Tonight the wilds are alive singing up into the sky
Echoes from another time so fortunate to find
Open up our eyes compassionate and kind
Souls are intertwined climbing like a vine

And the half-moon sings a lullaby to people by the fireside
Mikazuki sings to children who dream tranquility for I and I

Sending out a message of love
Track Name: Hakung
Hakung - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

Kayapo samaya sanango
Satta massangana my bros
Hamro bato bongo tingo
Baila balia the way the wind blows

La tierra del arco iris a donde me voy
Sundari tau jau sati sangha jai

Rangi changi condor vuela
Los aguilindos vuelan alla
Alconcito de Quito kaya
Picaflores de bosque yaya

La tierra del arco iris a donde me voy
Sundari tau jau sati sangha jai

Otorongo canta el son
Chituan chituan what a gwan?
Tigre tigre el rey leon
Puma blanca hakung kong

La tierra del arco iris a donde me voy
Sundari tau jau sati sangha jai
Track Name: Mil Kilometros
Mil Kilometros - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

La pureza de la floresta
Que fiesta la naturaleza

Bailando asi sube las montañas
Cantando asi por la caravan de
Las estrellas muevan adelante
Volando como el rayo diamante

A mil kilometros de altura
El camino que nos cura

Dulces sueños mis Limeños
Les abendigan mis Cartagenos
Tanto amor a mis trigeños
Y mis amigos New Yoriqueños

A mil kilometros de altura
El camino que nos cura
Track Name: Safron Burnin
Safron Burning - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

Leaves falling from the thoughts in my mind
Spray colors we all recognize
Like carpets for a forests' disguise

Red gold and green cascading down
Safron burning through the sky turning brown
Limbs that sway will be unbound

Out of the sky
Everywhere you look it's a magical show
Open your eyes
Everywhere you look it's a journey of souls

Evergreens frame the fading pale silhouette
TRading their shadows for another sunset
The times might be changing but they're not done yet

Out of the sky
Everywhere you look it's a magical show
Open your eyes
Everywhere you look it's a journey of souls
Track Name: Soul Traveling
Soul Traveling - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

Oh chicago I took the train to New York
San Fransisco Flint and Davenport
Danced in Colorado it was beautiful but so short
Soul traveling will surpass the last resort

This strain of poetry is growing like a golden tree
In the heart of the cities and in the cabins in the country
I'm holding the hands of my friends you know I pull them close to me
Acceptance and a lot of love for all whether it's supposed to be
A beautiful day for the people holding their rosaries
Or Korans giving alms and giving thanks for opportunities
I'm fully dedicated to the journey that is true to me
And all of the invisible derivatives of chivalry

Oh chicago I took the train to New York
San Fransisco Flint and Davenport
Danced in Colorado it was beautiful but so short
Soul traveling will surpass the last resort

I'm living beautifully in luminous community
Born into the most powerful form of my immunity
Set against illusion and innumerable confusing things
I'm working through the past and the future I do it dutifully
Now I'm just grooving to maneuver through all the rubric see
Tracks and trajectories paths and possibilities
History is fuel for the fire and so so soon we'll see
The emperors' new clothes full frontal public nudity

Oh chicago I took the train to New York
San Fransisco Flint and Davenport
Danced in Colorado it was beautiful but so short
Soul traveling will surpass the last resort

As far as I've observed
The power of our words
Exists beyond their resonance
And echoes through the world
And so i will assert
Respect is what's deserved
And kindness and compassion
My compatriots prefer
To never compromise
The love that is inside
Share it with the multitudes
As you live your life
We open up our eyes to inner paradise
Existence is a gift to reexternalize
A blessing on our ears
Filled with laughter and with tears
The profundity of silence where the timeless will appear
I've tried to be sincere
That's what got me here
Carry it like chariots
Burning through the atmosphere
Track Name: Winter Song (Gratitude)
Winter Song (Gratitude) - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

All of the miracles all that we see come to pass
All the mythologies chronologies glisten like glass
All of the legendary castles and heroes' repasts

Snow covers the world that I knew

All of the parables all of the fables we tell
All of our anecdotes antidotes all getting well
All of the songs of the sirens' yell

Snow covers the world that I knew

All of the animals look for a place safe and warm
All of the flowers throw petals that they once had worn
All of us babies have been crying out since we were born

Snow covers the world that I knew
Track Name: Living with the Love
Living with the Love - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

Moving underground
Tangle through the roots that we have found
Dancing through the fire
I'm inspired to hold my head up higher
Soaring through the sky
The magic of the music fills my mind
Flowing with the water
Learning how to be Mother Earth's sons and daughters

Living with the love
It's so easy my friend
Living with the love
There's no greater medicine

I will do my best
Cause every casual thought is what we'll manifest
I'm careful with my words
Because we are so sensitive to what we've heard
I won't take you personally
My life's a blessing even though you're cursing me
And I will assume nothing
Only a fool thinks that he knows something

Living with the love
It's so easy my friend
Living with the love
There's no greater medicine
Track Name: Blue Sunshine
Blue Sunshine - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas


Sitting at home under groovy blue sunshine
Watching the galaxies spin and unwind
Another experience the old and young find
Stimulates the sensual senses sometimes

So maybe I'll come down so you can see if you like it

Sitting on a rock in the cosmos
With infinite riches you know that I got those
I want to share it with you so i got close
To show you my Monet Degas and Picassos

And you're asking me "what is all this stuff?"

I want to send you a message through the air
Vibrations of love and care
I want to come down and sing you a song
I know you're wondering why I've been waiting so long

You're so beautiful I compose a new verse
To prove that I meant it I invent new words
It's as true as anything that you've heard
Coming from the other side of the universe

It's a long trip so I hope I didn't make it in vain

I want to send you a message through the air
vibrations of love and care
I want to come down and sing you a song
I know you're wondering why I've been waiting so long

Time and space debate my patience
Lately I've been stuck in stasis
Waiting for the places the Earth……
Track Name: Galactic Children
Galactic Children - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

Listen to the sound of the world

All the millions
Galactic children
All civilians
Planetary pilgrims

Listen to the sound of the world
Listen to the sound of your heart

All the dreams
All the possible scenes
All the silent screams
Inside of me

Listen to the sound of the world

Take the time
To change your mind
We can't stay blind
Cause we're intertwined
All these circumstances
Circle dances
Allowing us to change

Listen to the sound of the world

All that lives
Will surely die
So I ask myself
Who am I
Grown from the tree of the chromosomes
And known for the reasons I roam
Belief in seasons leaves me
At home in the eye of the cyclone
Raised on a pagan poem
We blazed in the manger so
I'm unafraid of the danger zone
And I was saved by the sacred OM

Listen to the sound of the world
Track Name: Red Clouds Fall
Red Clouds Fall - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas

Red clouds fall to the horizon
Only to rise again
Tomorrow is just a word
But it will touch a nerve of our sorrow
And I can't stop them from leaving
We are swept along goodbye past the grieving
But how could I know
That it was os easy to lose control
And how could I say
That nothing would change
While he's away
Cause we can never go back to today

So are you ready for right now
Though they tore down your lighthouse

Red clouds fall
On the body of the man who was leading
He's dead now but never gone
Existence is the song that we believe in
And I will cry tonight
And the rest of the world will join in my bereavement
But how could I know
That it was so easy to lose control
And how could I know
My mind rebels against the inevitable
Cause we can never go back to Gol Gotha

So are you ready for right now
Though they tore down your lighthouse
Track Name: The So Called
The So Called - Lyrics and Music by Mason Lucas


She's so lonely
She loves him only
The times when he's around and wrapped up in her arms
Otherwise she's crazy
Gonna crash his Mercedes into the median
And everyone can wonder why
But now she knows that the tears she holds back
Accumulate they fill her heart until it drowns
And now she knows that the words she holds back
Accumulate they pile up and tie her down

Cause everyone can fly before they hit the ground
And if they think they found it first it's so profound
And everyone gets lost inside their own designs
And looking back our own behavior blows our minds
And all that truth we're searching for is slow to find
So divine we're so inclined to close our eyes
When those goodbyes are left collecting time and dust
They rust
So we improvise the melodies and movements and
Wonder who will supervise

She's all over the world
He doesn't really know her
He's in love with this girl
But only when he's not sober
So it's time to get the finest yet
He might have said a tiny bit but he forgets the story
And says "Baby, don't worry"
He gave himself the time to tell
He might was well embellish the benefits and blemishes as well
Oh lordy it's a hell of a party
She's a loner
No one owns her
He used to be a stoner but now he's rollin over
He caught a flight to Colombia he could probably phone her
Cause he's trying to be a gentleman
But he's blinded by the estrogen
And he's reminded that he's done it again
Cause walking is a set of controlled falls
Life is a series of roll calls
And either you are climbing your old walls
Or you're buying into that so called world
That so called…..

Cause everyone can fly before they hit the ground
And if they think they found it first it's so profound
And everyone gets lost inside their own designs
And looking back our own behavior blows our minds
And all that truth we're searching for is slow to find
So divine we're so inclined to close our eyes
When those goodbyes are left collecting time and dust
They rust
So we improvise the melodies and movements and wonder who will supervise
