Track Name: Delilah
Damn, I grabbed the wrong book again
This was supposed to be a freedom, yeah
and damn, this teary ink is leaking
page after page, this endless starlight into day

And it seems, so absurd now, I've thought about it
but I'm ready, for the weather and what happens around it

'Cos I, I'm looking at Delilah yeah,
oh and I, I cannot see more clearly.

So I am sitting in the corner of my favourite room and I'm reminded, just what she's been through
she's been running for so long, so strong, in neglect, god damn this life has got to change
Cos while we're lookin down the telescope and noting all the times, well, half the world is starving and no-one seems to mind
no we can't predict the future, we can't rewrite the past
Take a look all around you, this moment just wont last

And it seems, so obvious, that it's got much more confused
each time, just wondering, how I knew?

'Cos I, I'm looking at Delilah yeah,
oh and I, I cannot see more clearly.
Oh I, I'm staring at Delilah yeah,
on and I, i cannot see more clearly, yeah

Oh I'm looking at Delilah, strumming from inside her, my words come from inside her, Delilah, Delilah, I'm standing right beside her, prisoner inside her, Delilah, Delilah, Delilah, Delilah, yea

Oh I, I'm staring at Delilah yeah,
on and I, i cannot see more clearly
Track Name: Good Morning Beautiful
Good Morning Beautiful
Like drivin' in the dawn
Sun rises colourful
whispers of summer warmth
Good Morning Beautiful
I can't wait for the day
I'm waking up so beautiful
Your way

It's cold, I know
in the winter when the snow is falling
but nowhere comes a'callin like you do
and spring will bring the dappled sun
and smiles will come to everyone
with promises of longer days to come

So Good Morning Beautiful
Like drivin' in the dawn
Sun rises colourful
whispers of summer warmth
Good Morning Beautiful
I can't wait for the day
I'm waking up so beautiful
Your way

But temporarily, beautiful
I'm so far away
know that some day i'll be back to stay
The cooling breeze and the salty seas
Manuka trees are calling me
from home, Aotearoa

So Good Morning Beautiful
Like driving, in the dawn
Sun rises colourful
whispers of summer warmth
Good Morning Beautiful
I can't wait for the day
I'm waking up so beautiful
Your way

Your way, oh yeah, your way
I'm waking up so beautiful, your way.
Track Name: Into the Blue
As I look upon a wonder; as I look upon the earth
as I look upon religion, I look upon a curse
When your eyes see perfection, in your heart, you know there's a way
A simple decision makes a sunny day

Take me to a place I can see, beauty all around me
we don't need to go far, just follow your heart
I tend to run to you, instead of searchin' for something new
only 'cos it's easier than looking, into the blue

Into the Blue, the blue, the blue
into the Blue, the blue, the blue

The sky's on fire, but the clouds spell rain
burn around a temple, in the closing day
when you've come too far, and forgot the light
you've got to walk, through the endless night
got to sing, to keep the dark at bay
wave goodbye to an ordinary day

Into the Blue, the blue, the blue
into the Blue, the blue, the blue

So tell me now, tell me now, what am I doing here?
Tell me now, tell me now, what were those famous last words?
Tell me now, tell me now, what am I still doing here?
Tell me now, as I'm looking

Into the Blue
Track Name: Cravin'
Oh cravin', you make the taste worthwhile, oh cravin',
cravin', yeah, you make a poor man smile
Oh cravin', cravin constant hunger makes me so agile
cravin, and I, I cannot rectify

And oh, I will wait for you
and oh, yeah, I will see it through
and oh, no, no I won't fight for you
until we grow, I will crave for you

Oh cravin', yeah you like the city lights and
I'm cravin', cravin' oh, you seem to like my style
Cravin, cravin' deep and I, I cannot get much higher
I'm craving, craving for your hot skin next to mine

And oh, I will wait for you
and oh, yeah, I will see it through
and oh, no, no I won't fight for you
until we grow, I will crave for you

Oh cravin', cravin' cravin' the kind I can't justify
I'm cravin', cravin' and I, I just can't take time
I'ma cravin', cravin' and I, I just close my eyes
I'm cravin' cravin' and I cannot rectify

And oh, I will wait for you
and oh, yeah, I will see it through
and oh, no, no I won't fight for you
until we grow, I will crave for you
Track Name: Perception
If you don't love me for me, goodbye
It it's a change you wanna see - goodbye

'Cos everybody's perfect, just the way they are
and don't try to change my ways to fit in your arms
There's misconceptions, about how we should be and
we think we're free...

Your preconceptions, domesticated you see life just how you're programmed to believe
but no-one ever mentioned, that life is all perception

It's called, the 'dream of first attention'
these things, we learn as a child
we follow, the almighty leader, who in truth
is the demon of the day
But if you choose, you can never lose, break this spell, escape from hell
It's up to you, to see right through, this false reality that we consume

'Cos everybody's perfect, just the way they are
and don't try to change my ways to fit in your arms
There's misconceptions, about how we should be and
we think we're free...

Your preconceptions, domesticated you see life just how you're programmed to believe
but no-one ever mentioned, that life is all perception

So we look forward to heaven, but can't you see it's here?
Theres nothing to wait for, and no exclusions to fear
and we're, we're told what to look for, and we're, we're told what is good
we're told, what is beautiful and now, if only we could,
see that

Everybody's perfect, just the way they are
and don't try to change my ways to fit in your arms
There's misconceptions, about how we should be and
we think we're free...

Your preconceptions, domesticated you see life just how you're programmed to believe
but no-one ever mentioned, that life is all perception

Perception, perception.
Track Name: Beautiful People
Just like any other day I stumble into life
view the morning and rub my eyes
I gotta get a coffee, don't hesitate,
cos' its nine-thirty-five and I am already late
But it's okay 'cos I am already here
don't need to brush my teeth or try to comb my hair

I got a beautiful sky, got a beautiful sea
I've got beautiful people, right next to me

Sometimes I try to contemplate my life
I try to paint a picture but it's a waste of time
there's nothing I could do, nowhere I could be
nothing I could hope for that I don't believe
and all the beautiful sky, surrounding me
playground for the birds and heaven to me

I've got a beautiful sky, got the beautiful sea
I've got beautiful people, right next to me

And oh, no, don't hesitate
and oh, oh just see today
'Cos I, am already here
don't need to plan for tomorrow
or look elsewhere

I've got a beautiful sky, got the beautiful sea
I've got beautiful people right next to me
Track Name: Humanity
Temple of mine, you seem to envelop me,
Crossing the line, in a faithless reality
Reflected in a paua shell I see the Heavens
and I go to her for my own sanity

We don't need war, so what are we fighting for
Lost on the line, ten thousand times
We don't need pain, what is there to gain?
Put down your guns and stand by your name:

Humanity, humanity, humanity..

Sweetest salvation, I'm finally free
given asylum, this land by the sea
Found your redemption, right by your side
Recent decisions just simplified
Passin the time, I'm lost in inertia
A moment of mine, just let me be
If this could be over! If we could be free!
From the self-righteous wisdom that you decree!

We don't need war, so what are we fighting for
Lost on the line, ten thousand times
We don't need pain, what is there to gain?
Put down your guns and stand by your name

Put down your guns and stand by your name
Stand by your name...

And oh yeah, I know that you know it
and only an evil man would want to control it
And oh yeah, I seek to expose it
'Cos I don't know how ANYONE can own it??

We don't need war, so what are we fighting for
Lost on the line, ten thousand times
We don't need pain, what is there to gain?
Put down your guns and stand by your name
We don't need more, people to argue for
we're all the same, go by one name
Now nobody's flawless, and each has his gain
So stand up children, stand by your name!

Humanity! Humanity! Humanity!
