Like a warm blue sea, darlin, your love washes over me Don't know where I am or where you begin I get so lost in you Its like a river so long without a destination Cause there is none Like a river so long without a destination It goes on and on, on and on, on and on Just like eternity Eternity, sweet eternity Its how long I want you with you Come away with me, darlin, won't you come away with me Come away with me, my love, won't you, won't you come away with me Upon a broken ridge I lifted my hands into the sky I didn't have to ask anymore I knew who I was born for Its like a river so long without a destination Cause there is none Its like a river so long without a destination It goes on and on, on and on, on and on Just like eternity Eternity, sweet eternity Its how long I want you with me Come away with me, darlin, won't you come away with me Come away with me, darlin, won't you come away with me Come away with me, my love, won't you Come away, come away, this river's so long Come away, come away, this river's so long Come away with me, my love, won't you come away with me Come away with me, darlin, won't you come away with me Come away with me, my love, won't you, won't you come away with me

Strong is the arm of the conquerer But weak the mind that guides them Shiny were the medals of honor But oceans of blood it cost them Long are the swords of the righteous But short the tempers the wield them To the victors Go the illusions They call this the conquerer's confusion What is gained when blood is the cost Control is won, but true power is lost To the victors go the illusions (You can conquer but you cannot win) They call this the conquerer's confusion (You can conquer but you cannot win) Conquerer's retribution (You can conquer but you cannot win) (You can conquer but you cannot win) Conquerer's retribution Oh oh, ah ah... Those who spit fire and anger burn their own tongues the worst Pointing a finger at another leave three pointing in reverse Those who spit fire and anger burn their own tongues the worst Pointing a finger at another leave three pointing in reverse Oh oh, ah ah... Immense were the war-time profits But the price was far more grimm Fierce was the enemy But not at cruel as the politician Vast were the newly won lands But more were the tears that watered them Frigid are the dead in the grave But colder are those that put them in Oh oh, ah ah... To the victors Go the illusions They call this the conquerer's confusion What is gained when blood is the cost Control is won, but true power is lost To the victors go the illusions (You can conquer but you cannot win) They call this the conquerer's confusion (You can conquer but you cannot win) Conquerer's retribution Conquerer's retribution

(scatting) When I stood at Standing Rock I called to the men with badges, "Why follow those orders To protect the greed of others?" You listen to the rich men's slurs But they too need these waters We all need these waters We all want clean water Ain't no other side, no We on the same side Ain't no other side, brother We are one tribe This is our chance Let's take it You want a change? Let's make it If there's a rule that needs to be broken Then, damn, let's break it I'm gonna wake the words up I'm gonna fill 'em with fierce love I won't loose the vision This world I dream of This will be done Ain't no room for shoulda This burden in my heart Somethin they can't lay hold of Gonna strike my drum Make the sound of freedom We will not shoot their guns Nor curse the burning sun I'll give love to my daughters Like rocks cut by waters Strong love for the daughters Like rocks cut by waters I'm a people connector I'm a water protector I'm not a conquering lion But I'm a champion of Zion I'm just a fellow human being Living in the land of the Hawaiian Ain't no other side, no We on the same side Ain't no other side, brother We are one tribe Ain't no other side, no We on the same side Ain't no other side, sister We are one tribe All of us...

(Fill em with fierce love) Ain't no other side, no

You are a dove Flying like a crow You know, you know But you won't let it go So now you've got yourself a hurricane Runnin' through your brain Drivin' you crazy Makin' you insane You're like a red-eyed wild stallion Hell-bent to win War with no winners A battle with no end And on the banks of forgiveness You clutch to your burden Her waters are begging But you won't throw it in You are a dove Flying like a crow You know, you know But you won't let it go Eyah... Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know Oh do you know? Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know Lordy, do you know? Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know Lordy, do you know? You are a dove Flying like a crow You know, you know But you won't let it go Up into a sky of hate Further you go Leaving a solution Way down below You are a dove Flying like a crow You know, you know But you won't let it go Now you're using your shield of hope To dig a grave You call it past your master So today you are it's slave See your pride's cry of victory Has signaled your defeat You've traded in your throne For a broken seat And on the banks of fogivness Her waters beg you to throw it in But your tears burn your wounds And you just wont listen You are a dove Flying like a crow You know, you know But you won't let it go Up into a sky of hate Further you go Leaving a solution Way down below You know, you know But you won't let it go You are a dove Flying like a crow You know, you know But you won't let it go You are a dove Flying like a crow (From the shadow, (in)to the light)... Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know Oh do you know? Forgiveness is for the forgiver More than the one being forgiven Do you know, know, know Whoa, do you know?

How do the serve and protectors Become the killers and oppressors How do the serve and protectors Become the killers and oppressors Shot down in the street I heard the young man cry His mother rushed to him Promised that she wouldn’t lie But his soul had already gone to fly Whoa.. His mother begged the officer, “Why would you kill him?” His silence answered her It was the color of his skin Whoa… I lay down by a river of tears And I add mine Wondering for how long Shall they trade Blood for wine A young girl came Running home when She heard the house fall Fall from the sky Family and home Were mud, brick and bone And she had no reason why She cried up to the planes, “What was their crime?” The engines roared back, “Their religion this time” How do the serve and protectors Become the killers and oppressors How do the serve and protectors Become the killers and oppressors I lay down by a river of tears And I add mine I’m wondering for how long Shall they trade Blood for wine I lay down by a river of tears And I add mine I’m wondering for how long Shall justice be Silenced by crime (How long shall justice be silenced by crime?)

Like a huntress Deep in the forest There’s no moon tonight We must feel the way Feel the way When the wind blows loudly In your own ear The wind on the mountain Can be hard to hear Far from illusion The guides are beckoned A distant calling Will you follow the drum? Are you listening? Are you listening? Are you listening? To the wind under the owl’s wing Are you listening? Are you listening? Are you listening? To the wind under the owl’s wing Are you listening? To the wind under the owl’s wing Are you listening? To the wind under the owl’s wing Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Beneath the smoke There hides a fragrance What is not clear Shall soon be shown Between the waves And deep silence I follow the callings Feel the way (My feelings my guidance) A word can lie But not its sound Proclamations of wisdom Revealed in the rhythm Behold the wisdom Revealed in the rhythm Are you listening? Are you listening? Are you listening? To the wind under the owl’s wing Are you listening? To the wind under the owl’s wing Can you hear the rhythm? To the wind under the owl’s wing Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh Only you can give your power away Hinimaweh

A gift awaits you If you wanna receive it Open up your hands Get out of your way It’s trying to get to you Will you let it through? A blessing is cursed When its misperceived Like gifts at the door You’ve accused as thieves You’ve built your cage And sealed it with doubt Belief locks you in No knowing gets you out How long will you plead With the gate keepers For a gift, for a gift That is already yours Turn from their closed doors And open your own Lift up your gaze now The way shall be shown Open, open, open Don’t you understand? Yeah, oh Yauna… Yakina, Yakina oh, Yakina… Take off the armor No need to fight Just open your hands Get down in the river Look up stream Something is coming Belief that one’s blinded By knowing is lifted Once a distant dream Is now to be tasted Clutching and grasping As torn the royal gown When true majesty Does not need a crown Struggle to gain There go the hard fisted When an open Its already gifted Yeah, oh Yauna… (Let the gift(s) come to you…allow the things to come to you…let it all in…no need to fight…no need to struggle…oh)

Yeah… Fire, fire Down in the water, water We sat and we watched her, watched her Fire, fire Down in the water, water We sit and we watch her, watch her Chikomborero Chikomborero Tarisa Coming down from the mountain top Until the ocean, she don’t stop And now I see the roots of all emotion Dancing there down in the ocean In a vision They gave me a fire Told me to take it ‘cross the ocean The only way The fire could live Was down, down inside of me With the light inside I swam to a land Where people lived and darkness and confusion I shared the light with the people I did meet And then they shared the same light too Each person I touched In turn passed on the light And soon the dark land became bright Oh, ah, eh Tarisa Fire, fire Down in the water, water We sit and we watch her, watch her (These blessings do abound, blessings all around, tarisa) Love like the fire in the water The flame that don't go out (It won’t go out) I want to love like the fire in the water It’s the kind of light that don’t go out It’s the kind of light that won’t go out It’s the kind of flame that don’t go out It’s the kind of love that don’t go out It’s the kind of light that don’t go out It’s the kind of love that won’t go out It’s the kind of flame that don’t go out It’s the kind of love that don’t go out (Thank you, water)

Some say If it can’t be proven Then it ain’t so But there’s so much That we can’t seee What we don’t know We don’t know Science, authority both think That they know all But science is a theory And pride goes before the fall All we’ve got Is what we see From our side Of reality You only hear Half the truth When you hear one Side of the story If everything That you see Was once a thought And then reality Then imagination is holy And the mind is like a deity (Creative creators, go create x 5) So much possibility So much possibility In this here infinity So much possibility The power of belief and faith Is not that they’re Based on what is true Belief and faith True or false Show it’s the mind That rules you It’s not that you believe But that belief True or false Can control you If everything That you see Was once a thought And then reality Then imagination is holy And the mind is like a deity (Creative creators, go create x 6) So much possibility Creative creators, go create So much possibility Creative creators, go create In this here infinity Creative creators, go create In this here infinity Creative creators, go create So much possibility
