Track Name: Tic Toc
Tic toc, toc tic
Time passes so quick 2X

Seems like it was only yesterday
I learned to ride my bike to school
Seems like it was only yesterday
I was playing the fool

Tic toc, toc tic
Time passes so quick 2x

Seems like it was only yesterday
I held my baby girl in my arms
Seems like it was only yesterday
Now she’s ready to fly on her own

Don’t waste your time, don’t waste your life!

Bridge:
Seize the day, you might not get another
Might not get another
Seize the day, be known as a lover
Of life on the way
Seize the day, give it your potential
Give it your essential
Seize the day, you might not get another
Might not get another

Tic toc, toc tic
Don’t waste your time, don’t waste your life
Bridge: Seize the day etc…

It’s the only life you’ve got
Track Name: Brighter Day
It’s gonna be 3X A brighter day,
It’s been dark you know and it’s been hard you know and…
I doubted that it would ever end
The broken dreams, broken families……..shattered society

Maybe I can’t see it, but I can feel it rising up from inside of me
Maybe we can feel it, we can see it, transforming all we see
Chorus:
It’s gonna be 3X A brighter day

Sun coming up shadows disappearing
Wearing my hope exploding through the ceiling
Was at the end of my rope but now I’m healing
Surprised by joy that I’m believing 2X
You were on your way, 2X
Chorus:
Sun coming up son coming up
Track Name: Higher
Changing my direction
Changing my attitude
Changing my perceptions
Fixing my thoughts on you

Pre-chorus:
Getting rid of my excess baggage
Just keeping the essentials
Getting rid of my excess habits
Having you as my only ritual
Higher, higher, higher 2x
I’m coming up 2x

Changing my ambitions
Transforming all my blues
Trading my disillusions
For visions that will come true

Come on up 3x the door is open wide
You’re welcome inside
Track Name: Simplicity
Intro: sim

Sim sol re la
I said I could be happy, anywhere you see
Sim sol re la
Cos happiness is not outside, Happiness is in me
Sim sol la sim sol la
But I’ve fallen yeah, I’ve fallen oooo
Sim sol
I’ve fallen from my simplicity
Simplicity 3X

Well I said all that
But now I find I’m running a treadmill
Of what to buy, and what to drink
What to wear, and what to think
I’ve fallen, I’ve fallen
I’ve fallen from my simplicity
Simplicity 3X

Solo
Return to me 3X
My simplicity
Cos we’ve been
Shaped and moulded, marketed, coded 2X
But I want to get more down to earth
With a different system of worth
I want to get more down to earth
With a different system of worth

Cos I’ve fallen
Have you fallen?
Like I’ve fallen
From my simplicity
Track Name: Wai ?
Couplet 1
Drop by drop you fall on us, rehydrating
Drop by drop you fall on us, invigorating
From above and from below
You wash and you refresh you make us grow
Rivers, oceans and seas

Refrain:
We pollute you when we should salute you
Why O, Wai, Eau, Wai, ?
Fill you with chemicals, non-ecological
Why O, Wai, Eau, Wai, ?
Without you we can survive
Without you there is no life
Couplet2
Bubbling up from underground
Summer’s dead if you can’t be found
This great wave that we’re surfing on
Liquid or solid c’est tout bon

Refrain :
Track Name: Wings
What is this strange fluttering of wings
What is this feeling that makes me sing
What is this strange fluttering I hear
All my fears have disappeared

As if a thousand drums were beating in my heart
As if a thousand drums were telling me it’s time to start 2X

*To leap ahead to go and spread your wings
To leap and spread
Following invisible
Invisible threads

A code that’s written in our DNA
We’re born to fly a different way
Like the monarch’s flight down to Mexico
It takes to the air when it’s time to go

And amazingly endures the wind
Amazingly endures the rain
Amazingly endures the winds and
Amazingly endures the pain
*
by faith we are lead
following invisible threads
Track Name: Industrial machine
For Valentine’s day petals and stalk
For Christmas day bigger the box!
For mother’s or father’s or whatever day
Any old reason to make us pay

Refrain:
And we are oiling, oiling, oiling
The industrial machine, manufacturers dream 2X
Consumer machine 2X

Got the made in China
Got the made in Japan
Got the big juicy Apple
They got us in the can
Refrain

On est addict à la machine
Tout le monde à fond sur le bling bling
C’est l’industrie qui nous formate
Qui nous guide jusqu'à nous détruire

I have heard and it is a tragedy
That we come into the earth all originals
But die photocopies
refrain

On est addict à la machine
Tout le monde à fond sur le bling bling
C’est la machine qui nous contrôle
Comment faire pour s’en sortir

Creating our need
Spoiling our seed
Proliferating at such a speed
Creating our need
Nurturing our greed
Proliferating at such a speed
Refrain

They mold us fold us
Till we look the same
Mold us fold us
And we play the game

On est addict à la machine
Tout le monde à fond sur le bling bling
C’est la machine qui nous contrôle
Comment faire pour s’en sortir

On s’crée des besoins
On clique sur des liens
Mais c’est un cercle sans fin
Stoppons, notre vie nous appartient

La terre est bonne
Mais qu’est ce qu’on lui donne
En échange de son soleil,
De son eau et de toutes ses merveilles

Give a little bit to Africa
Give a little bit South America
Give a little bit to Asia
Why not give a little bit at home
Stop over oiling
Track Name: Circles
I have been running in these circles
I have been turning, for so long
I have been running, in these circles
Trying to find my way home

What’s the answer to my question? Mi ré la
Can you tell me what I’m looking for?
2X looking for

Chorus
I’m gonna look to the son
I’m gonna dance in his rain
And without doubt I will not be the same
I will not be the same
No no oooooooo

I have stopped turning in these circles
Now I’m whirling I’m swirling I soar
For I’ve been learning ouuuuu yes
I’ve been learning um huh
I’ve been learning that you’re inside

You’re the answer to my question
It is you who I’ve been looking for, I was looking for I’ve been looking for, I was looking for
Yooouuu
Chorus:
I’m gonna look to the son
I’m gonna dance in his rain
And without doubt I am not the same
I am not be the same
Track Name: Dreadnought
No dreadnought no dreadnought no 2x

On every horizon, you will find dark clouds
Trying to pull you down, slow you up and
Wipe that smile off your face !

But what he said to me was…….

No dreadnought no dreadnought no 2x

Bridge Even in the desert
Even in the storm
Even in my weaknesses
You make me strong

Even in the fire
Even in the flame
I walk thru it all
B’coz I bear your name

Don’t be afraid
Track Name: A Time For Everything
One by one the leaves are falling
To the sound of a melody called autumn
You left your finest and best summer dresses
To the wind 2X

Refrain
Do not turn back the pages
Once they’ve gone
Keep moving forward
With what you’ve learned
To everything there is a season
To everything there is a reason
To everything there is a season

In this earth 2X

Couplet 1
A time to laugh and a time to cry
A time to be born and yes, there’s a time to die
A time to give and a time to take away
A time to leave and a time to stay

A time for everything 2X
Refrain

Couplet 2
A time of peace and a time for war
A time to repair those things that we once tore
A time to be active a time to be still
To reflect on our purpose
And focus on his will
A time for everything 2X

Solo
Un temps pour ceci, un temps pour cela
Un peu de sagesse qu’on sache où on va
A time for everything 2X
