I Know You Know

the universe won't give you more than you can handle
but still, you better buckle up
you don't lose your flame because you light a candle
keep your flame and light the whole world up

I know you know, you know the difference
I know you know it's true
I know you know, you know the difference
I know you know it's true

feel the universe giving you resistance
it tries to block you as you go
how come you never feel it when it gives assistance
you never listen when it flows

I know you know, you know the difference
I know you know it's true
I know you know, the universe resisting
I know you'll make it through

I love you, I know you know I do

I know you know, the universe resisting
I know you'll make it through
I know you know, the universe assisting
I love you, I know you know I do

I know you'll make it through

Epiphany (Trio)

I fell a bit behind while I was fixing me
I'll change the things I can and let the others be
they really think they got me by the balls and throat
their chance of winning against me is so damned remote

I got much more time than it may really seem
'cause time is friendly though it can feel mean

and one day I'll go:
whoah, I found me an epiphany

they're throwing stones at me from houses made of glass
got tired of losing, baby, sitting on my ass
I've got a future, lady growing greener grass

I got strong inertia moving right along
baby steps that keep me getting strong

one day I'll go:
whoah, I found me an epiphany

they can't see I'm rising, they can't see I'm rising to the top
look at me I'm floating, look, I'm floating and I just can't stop
I'll raise the ante in their poker game
all their money's on a hand that's lame

and I'm going to say that:
whoah, I found me an epiphany


Wait For Me

wait for me to try to make it better
wait for me to try to get it right
I can wait for you if you're coming with me
I can wait for you but don't be late tonight

I've been running around for way too long
since sometime yesterday
all this waiting around has made me strong
cause the payoff is today

wait for me i'm pulling it together
wait for me to get it really tight
I can't wait for you if you're not coming with me
I can't wait for you to come around any more

I've been running around for way too long
since sometime yesterday
all this waiting around has made me strong
cause the payoff is today

I've been running around for way too long
with the future in my eye
I've been stuck on the ground and waiting around
so clear me now to fly high

I can wait for you


Heavy Groove Me

I really like the way you move
I really like the way you move me
I really like your heavy groove
c'mon now, and heavy groove me

I really like the way you sound
I really like the way you sound when you call me
and heavy groove me
c'mon and heavy groove me

I really like the way you are
I really like the way you float above me
just like the moon and stars
you glow above me

every time that you get close to me
it just feels like it's just destiny

you move me, you heavy groove me
I can see your eyes see right through me
'cause you move me you heavy groove me
I really like the way you move

heavy groove me


Vicious Voices

I went to France
and waited under the Eiffel Tower
I went to find what I misplaced
what has been missing

I think I lost it, where did it go
and if I found it, I may not know
it just comes to you

wherever I go I take with me
my vicious voices in my baggage
I can't escape the conversation of the voices

I went to Rome and to Nepal
then down to Rio
I looked around in Central Park
and the trains of Tokyo

I fled my worries, went to Saipan
the only difference is now
I'm worried with a tan
and still I'm a sad man

wherever I go I take with me
my vicious voices in my baggage
I can't escape the conversation of the voices

vicious voices
they follow me around
vicious voices

I wish that I could disappear
and start anew
but hotel cafes don't ever 
have that on the menu

my head is aching
( my heart is cold)
and my feet are sore
( and so is my soul)

though it's all been
given to me now
I still want more
and still I'm aching

wherever I go I take with me
my vicious voices in my baggage
I can't escape the conversation
of the voices

vicious voices,
malicious voices
but precious voices

I know now it's no use to run away
so I better stay andt face them


The Key

He's got 10,000 reasons 
why it is that he's always bleeding
why it is that nothing is his fault

try to talk but there is no use in
wasting breath with all the excuse and
lying, denying and running away from it all

The key that fits perfectly
Is cut with time and a little bit of patience
the key that fits right for me
will be mine with a little bit of time

She's done but she won't admit it
abrick wall, refusing to quit it
she thinks that she's a normal girl

so blind to anger misplacement
can't face the pain in her basement
self-loathing aiming at the world

The key that fits perfectly
Is cut with time and a little bit of patience
the key that fits right for me
will be mine with a little bit of time

*Tribal chant*

And while I'm cutting out the perfect key 
all I'm thinking is unlocking liberation
and when I think I cut it perfectly for me 
it turns out I now need a combination

The key that fits perfectly
Is cut with time and a little bit of patience
the key that fits right for me
will be mine with a little bit of time

the key: the key will be cut


Lady of Liberty

Lady of Liberty raise your torch up high
let it glow high above the rainbow
that makes your children

Lady of Liberty keep your colors pure
help us bridge the distance
while we celebrate our difference
that is why we're yours, our Lady

it will always rain on your children
tears — and tears of joy
I cry gratefully
for those who died for me
so that I can say out loud…

…this is me

if we don't see eye to eye
I promise you I'll try
to say to you at night
that today I did you right

'cause I want to sleep by you
with a conscience clean and true
knowing in my heart

that I'm free

and earn the right to say
you're my Lady of Liberty
