Track Name: Gathering Light
The only thing certain
Is a life that's uncertain
So gather the light
behind your eyes.
We're gathering light
Behind our eyes.

Oh---
Lift up your eyes to the start my son
And take in their light.

In a spherical orbit
On a round world
Orbiting around a round sun,
Why should time move in a straight line?
A bullet-train on a linear plane
Where light bends
And gravity always wins.

Here we remain on a linear plane,
Our perceptions framed by a steady march
From A to B...

In this world we have not the senses to see.
Restricted realities frame our capacities
To change, to grow, to make the world a better place,
To evolve from this human race
Into a universe melding marathon of time and space
Where all love is infinite and true
And all possibilities are realities for you.

We're gathering light
Behind our eyes
We're gathering light
In the back of our mind for later in life.
We are the gathering light
We are the gathering light
We are the gathering light

Leave our bodies on the train
Evolve beyond our human brains
And become one
With Everything.
Track Name: Mind the Gap
Mind the gap
it widens and grows
at the speed of light,
the speed of technology.
Faster than your brain can see
faster than the birds and the bees,
faster than the wind in the trees,
faster than your eyes can perceive.
Mind the gap
between the rich and the poor,
who are not so, who rarely are.
We need some new words,
give me some new words
for those that don't take too much,
for those that live with just enough.
Mind the gap
between the birds and the bees,
between the humans and tress,
between you and me.
Mind the gap
it widens and grows.
Mind the gap.
