Unlock the Rhythm Animals on the dance floor On the loose again Dirty moves even the score With lies Animals on the dance floor On the loose again They pay it up find a lap For a night Unlock the rhythm Feel it rise and sway Unlock the rhythm Release it, turn it over Unlock the rhythm Free it, find a way Unleash your human nature Animals wanna build walls To keep ‘em all away Close the doors, bar the windows And hide And the place gets so small And isolated What can grow in the darkness? Picture it Unlock the rhythm Feel it rise and sway Unlock the rhythm Release it, turn it over Unlock the rhythm Free it, find a way Unleash your human nature I’m so tired of the headlines Explained away Only see what they want Only hear what they want Upside down Back we go Deadlocked, returning Losing ground And do they care? Upside down We stay there Deadlocked, returning Losing ground But still we care Tell me has it gone too far, too late? For love, for a new song to rise

Fire To Go 03:05
Fire To Go There are still nights you come to me But every day that passes fades the dream more easily Got my traces On a lot of places Gonna have to see what time begs you to see If you need a little fire to go A little fix when you’re low If you need a little high I’ll say no You better find your way home There’s a way I’m bound to see To pierce a spell that’s wrapped itself around me Burn all the seasons Count all the paces Gonna find a sea that can hold all of me If you need a little fire to go A little fix when you’re low If you need a little high I’ll say no You better find your way home If you need a little fire to go A little fix when you’re low If you need a little high I’ll say no You better find your way home You better find your way home You better find your way home

Leave the Light On I like the way, I like the way you leave the light on I’m facing it, dazzled by the flare Pulled in before long I know the tricks, I know the schemes My mind has made up Still I flirt with delusion Awake until dawn To go higher For a brief salvation I like the way, I like the way you leave the light on And how it makes the gamble seem new to me I know the risk, I know the game Won’t change before long But still I choose to fool with the fire I see And go higher For a brief salvation No matter The fleeting consolation No matter Just a brief salvation I like the way, I like the way you leave the light on I like how it’s revealing the changes in me I thought I knew the road before this came along I’ll let go, lose myself for a while, wherever it leads And go higher For a brief salvation No matter The fleeting consolation No matter Just a brief salvation Même fausse, elle réchauffe vois-tu L’idée de ta chaleur Leave the light on The way you leave the light on And go higher For a brief salvation

Hide Unseen 05:02
Hide Unseen I had you in sight I lost you, how sad Turn around when I've come so far In search of a sign that's nowhere to be found Leave it all behind in a ghostly flare I would choose another way Another fight But I have to go on Take it Cope and begin tonight To lose you Again Hide, unseen There's static on the screen I can't make out the lines Hide, unseen Your picture slowly flickers In and out of my mind Oh I tried to cling to the wind To chain the past To hold a sigh Walked up to the edge Until I was struck Left dizzied by a vast and knowing sky How can I let go again and again? Can something ever last through time? Hide, unseen There's static on the screen I can't make out the lines Hide, unseen Your picture slowly flickers In and out of my mind But I want to defy And take on time Undo what shattered Deny the truth and hide But I have to look on, go on Without you I know I have to... Hide, Unseen There's static on the screen I can't make out the lines All we are returns to stars and to dust Again and again Samsara

Rishikesh 03:11
Rishikesh How are you gonna decide? How are you gonna choose? Are you gonna divide Or adapt? Are you gonna break through? You can’t retrace it You’re gonna have to face it Are you gonna backslide And then crash? Gotta let it crack you Pull you apart and pull you through How are you gonna decide? How are you gonna choose? How are you gonna decide? How are you gonna choose? Do what you say Say what you mean Tat tvam asi Out of the fog Into the flow So you may see Follow the signs Open the lines Over the gap Say what you mean Mean what you do Hari om tat sat Are you gonna take sides Or hide out? Let the current move you No way to tie it You’re gonna have to ride it Risk it again and slip you through How are you gonna decide? How are you gonna choose? Hari Om Tat Sat Jai Guru Dev Hari Om Tat Sat Jai Guru Nam

Words 05:12
Words You wanna tell me to do The things you think I should do But I, I’ve been doing what I do And doing well long before you Doing well long before you You think you’re wiser than the average And I’m patient with your chatter, your chatter You’re trying hard to prove yourself To anyone who listens, anyone who listens It don’t matter Words could be your medicine If you use ‘em wisely Your words could set you free Words could be your medicine If you use ‘em wisely Your words could get you free But you turn them to poison, to poison, to poison, to poison Keep your opinions to yourself If they’re only meant to make you shine, shine You wanna claim on the spotlight You take, take, take And it ain’t right, it ain’t right Words could be your medicine If you use ‘em wisely Your words could set you free Words could be your medicine If you use ‘em wisely Your words could get you free But you turn them to poison, to poison, to poison, to poison They say the devil encourages discord Cause the devil he don’t like silence You say you’ve dragged your cross a long way I say we’ve all got crosses baby Words could be your medicine if you use ‘em wisely Your words could get you free

Rejoins-moi 03:36
Rejoins-moi Awakening now The snake is moving up From the tail to the crown Awakening now The snake is moving up And you’re waking me up Lovée tout au creux de mon corps Vit une bête endormie Prête à délaisser le fort Remonter à la vie Logé tout au creux de mon ventre Coule un désir insoumis La rivière qui veut s’étendre Sortir de son lit Rejoins-moi où tout se mêle et se lie Là où tout s’éveille, tout se remue Où rien ne commence, rien ne finit Rejoins-moi là où le temps n’existe plus Rejoins-moi Awakening now The snake is moving up From the tail to the crown Caché entre l’os et la chair Court un frisson infini Comme le souffle et la braise Déclenche l’incendie Rejoins-moi où tout se mêle et se lie Là où tout s’éveille, tout se remue Où rien ne commence, rien ne finit Rejoins-moi là où le temps n’existe plus Rejoins-moi où tout se mêle et se lie Là où tout circule sans retenue Quelque part entre le jour et la nuit Là où les frontières n’existent plus Awakening now The snake is moving up From the tail to the crown Awakening now The snake is moving up And you’re waking me up Rejoins-moi où tout se mêle et se lie Là où tout s’éveille, tout se remue Où rien ne commence, rien ne finit Rejoins-moi là où le temps n’existe plus Rejoins-moi où tout se mêle et se lie Là où tout circule sans retenue Quelque part entre le jour et la nuit Là où les frontières n’existent plus Rejoins-moi où tout se mêle et se lie Là où tout s’éveille, tout se remue Où rien ne commence, rien ne finit Rejoins-moi là où le temps n’existe plus

Assez I Said Assez Here, I said it I say we’re done with it Assez as I said And now we gotta break away I say we gotta break away Been trying to calm that wild fire Since the days of Salem Tell you to tame that inner roar Stay silent and don’t scare ‘em The witch hunt isn’t so far back The embers are still burning Assez Here, I said it I say we’re done with it Assez as I said Now we gotta break away I say we gotta break away Been buying youth in pretty jars Been trying to hang on to your part Been hearing that same old ticking clock Just as soon as the fade-out starts Say you’re a disappearing act Now watch the curtain falling fast I’m sick of being praised For all that’s keeping me from being seen And all those pious words and virtues Starched and buttoned up real clean I’m sick of how it’s so quiet we don’t notice We’ve gotta break away Assez Here, I said it I say we’re done with it Assez as I said And now we gotta break away I say we gotta break away Don’t tell me that you never heard about it Don’t tell me you don’t understand a single word Don’t tell me you don’t know what to say ‘bout it Don’t tell me that something about this ain’t absurd

Shine 03:46
Shine Lonely my vessel A summerless child I’m like a kettle I sigh High, ground the fever At last, I come around Round Lonely my vessel Is whispering light Melodies haunting the wild Leave me and still I find Sound Wherever I go It still shines Babaamaazakonenjige Wherever I go It still shines Babaamaazakonenjige Wherever I go It still shines It still shines Lonely my vessel It circles the night I know the feel of the flight Break all the barriers down Down Wherever I go It still shines Babaamaazakonenjige Wherever I go It still shines Babaamaazakonenjige Wherever I go It still shines Wherever I go It still shines Babaamaazakonenjige Wherever I go It still shines Babaamaazakonenjige Wherever I go It still shines It still shines

Travelers 02:38
Travelers Travelers in moving circles You and I Stretching up Reaching out You and I Amber Limbs Glowing skin Little blaze You and I How long on the summer’s edge? How long in the haze? How long on the summer’s edge? How long in the haze? ‘Til cinder fills the night ‘Til the timing falls to right ‘Til cinder fills the night ‘Til the timing falls to right I wasn’t saying no for nothing I was waiting it out Keeping it steady Calling to all directions Now I’m ready, now Now I’m ready I wasn’t saying no for nothing I was waiting it out Keeping it steady Calling to all directions Now I’m ready, now Now I’m ready Now I’m ready Now I’m ready
