Track Name: The Other
You think you are just yourself,
and that freedom is to run
doing everything you want

Yet whatever you perceive
all other life around
are non other than your Heart

I ask you to see with the eyes of the other...
feel their heart as yours...the wounds you create..
through open space, you hurt yourself
for in open...in open space we are one

Committed to every one,
wise and cautious one becomes,
reckless bubbling of youth gone

Mature love-beaming sun,
passion - fire in the heart,
pursuing all that’s good...
when the dawn of freedom’s here.

Please do hear with the ears of the other...
feel their body as yours...the scars you create..
through infinite God flesh - they hurt ourselves
for within that flesh we are one

we are bonded...together...
what you do...I receive...
What I have is yours
What I do you breath
We are weaved forever
in this perennial sea

what a paradox my Lord,
when surrendering all...all I become.
what a paradox my Lord,
when surrendering all...all I become.

I ask you to feel with the heart of the other...
feel their joy as yours...wonders you create..
through unborn space - you heal yourself
for within this space we are one

what a paradox my Lord,
when surrendering all...all I become.
what a paradox my Lord,
when surrendering all...all I become.

Track Name: San Jacinto
by Peter Gabriel

Thick cloud - steam rising
hissing stone on sweat lodge fire
Around me - buffalo robe
sage in bundle - run on skin

Outside - cold air
stand, wait for rising sun
Red paint - eagle feathers
coyote calling - it has begun

Something moving in
I taste it in my mouth and in my heart
It feels like dying - slow
letting go of life

Medicine man lead me up though town
Indian ground - so far down
Cut up land - each house - a pool
kids wearing water wings - drink in cool

Follow dry river bed
watch Scout and Guides make pow-wow signs
Past Geronimo's disco
Sit 'n' Bull steakhouse - white men dream

A rattle in the old man's sack
look at mountain top - keep climbing up
Way above us the desert snow
white wind blow

And the tears roll down my swollen cheek
think I'm losing it - getting weaker
I hold the line - I hold the line
San Jacinto
yellow eagle flies down from the sun
from the sun

We will walk - on the land
We will breathe - of the air
We will drink - from the stream
We will live - hold the line
Track Name: Descending
When mirrors, reflect and distort innocent words as words of harm
Re-living, fear in our bones, shame or distrust, out of thin air
We, survived, locking it behind, standing straight and looking good

Come inwards, we cannot run from that which shapes the path beneath our feet
Come inwards, we cannot hide from that which whispers from under our skin
Leap backwards, for there lies our chance, of coming whole, and owning all there is from us that keeps...

Circulating around, winds of the past
Knots in the heart that are seeking our love,
With thirst for attention and support...for coming home

Bring…forward, talismans of strength, symbols that soothe you and help you rise
Stretch…around, let your mind enlarge with plenty of space for breathing life
Find someone, that will hold your hand while all the pain-flow moves revealing you’re still here Alive.

In this fire heart of ours, we can bear it all,
and when we do we can change things for good
both for ourselves and for the world...it’s all in there
Circulating around, winds of the past
Knots in the heart that are seeking our love,
With thirst for attention and support...for coming home

In this fire heart of ours, we can bear it all,
and when we do we can change things for good
both for ourselves and for the world...it’s all in there

I’m des-cen-ding...
to the place that…
needs my love…
embrace it all…

Let the young child again, play in the grass,
Behind your eyes crying oceans of love,
Bringing the pieces back to one,
holding it all

Amidst your open chest, there is a space,
Where we might come and return,
And all this pain, is but the proof that we are alive
we bear it with pride.
