Track Name: Situation
I wanna get so high
I never come down
Find my peak state
Carry it around

I wanna get so high
I never come down
Find my peak state
Carry it around town
No I never put it down

Got love for my sisters
Love for my brothers
Got a little prayer inside me that they find love for each other

Gonna call in a Queen
Gonna call in a King
Situation...positive
Got to live to know
Situation...positive
Got to give to grow
Situation...positive In my heart,

Situation, transmission
Check the station, tune the frequency
Riding on these waves of creation
Balance in the now beyond polarisation
North to the South, East to the West
Meet in the chest, above and below, yes
Navigate how, open up and bless
Take time to connect, take the time to connect

Situation...positive
Got to live to know
Situation...positive
Got to give to grow
Situation...positive
Track Name: Wish
You know you got my number
You know I’m waiting for your call
Don’t leave me hanging here
Don’t leave me hanging here at all

You know you got my number
You know I’m waiting for your call
Don’t leave me hanging here
Don’t leave me hanging for more than all day

You’re in my head
Wish it were, wish it were my bed

I’m riding round all day
I’m smiling at the friends I see
But I am butterflies
Inside that’s what you’ve done to me

Go past my favourite place
Imagine you are there with me
We laugh and sit real close
We laugh at all the things that we can see and ..

You’re in my head
Wish it were, wish it were my bed

Lips may miss but
Hearts can kiss so
We may say that
We did it all and we are still calling for more

You’re in my head
Wish it were, wish it were my bed
Track Name: Monday To Friday
When are these rulers gonna wake up inside their beds?
When are these rulers gonna wake up inside my head?
Take me out dancing, away, on a mystery,
My life is dancing away, for the universe to see

Universal love, is universal peace
I hear the sound, the sound that brings me to my knees
And I will, sing for you if you will, dance for me
We are together from Monday to Friday

When will the future be seen to mean more than the past
Situation built on suffering, surely they won’t last
When will the time come to outrun the need for personal gain
When we realise another’s suffering,
is our own pain

Universal love, is universal peace
I hear the sound, the sound that brings me to my knees
And I will, sing for you if you will dance for me
We are together from Monday to Friday .. in eternity

Universal love .. is .. universal peace
Track Name: Raining For Days
It’s been raining for days
Been smoking so much
Our supplies won’t last this way
The outlook’s lookin' distinctly grey
Never thought of myself as one to complain
But I, might be temporarily swayed
might be temporarily swayed,
Might not be necessarily, something more than than impermanently
but I, might be temporarily swayed

I write more than I say
My mind just seems to function that way
Homegrown and I’m all alone
Say you wanna come over on the telephone
Well, I’m sure that can be arranged
I’m sure that can be arranged
Tie me up, I might have to be restrained
I’m sure that can be arranged

After the show we decide,
After party or private party at mine
One thing that I know for sure,
We’ll get high then get high some more
Cos I, wouldn’t let an opportunity pass me by
No I, wouldn’t let an opportunity pass me by
I am a truthful person I do not lie
And I, wouldn’t let an opportunity pass me by

We talk the night into the day
I didn’t know he had so much to say
You think I’m incredibly brave, I just thought I was predictably vague
But, shit just keeps going my way
But, shit just keeps going my way
Wouldn’t wanna have it any other way
No, no, no no,
No I, wouldn't wanna have it any other way
Track Name: Reasons To Live (album version)
We go tonight together
it's either now or never
I get my coat and I will meet you at the top of the stairs
We dance all night and so on
some leave and still we go on
into the sunrise in the shape of all our reasons to live

We go tonight together
it's either now or never
I get my coat and I will meet you at the top of the stairs
We make another story
you write the ending for me
into the sunrise and I love to see the light in your eyes
Track Name: Crashland (RBTS vs Men Imitating Machines)
Call me up
On my jet plane
Captain, crash landing
Imminent sustain ..

Call me up, in higher mind
Too far ahead to see the signs
Higher times, Come to show
We’ve come too far to let it go

Can we run, to the seas
On a flat earth we annihilate all the old beliefs
Truth we seek, tell no lie
Far ahead we’ll see the last sunrise

Walkin’ through jungle to my ..
Climbin’ through vines to find my ..
Countin’ my tears to see my ..
High enough now to be myself
