Track Name: Miracle
The land of a million islands
The ocean of endless eyes
The air of abundant energy
The planet of boundless life

Some think it has always been here
Some call it a miracle
Some think it appeared out of nowhere
How will we ever know

How will we ever know
How will we ever know
How will we ever know
How will we ever know

Some think will always be here
Some think it’ll end for sure
Some think that it’s going nowhere
How will we ever know…
Track Name: The Real Thing
I’m tired of only seeing you in my dreams
And talking through computer screens
It ain’t gonna cut it
No more wondering what you’re doing now
thinking about whether or not
Are you thinking about me cause I've been thinking a lot about you baby
I’m ready for loving

Ooooh I – been spending a lot of time
Being stuck in my mind – thinkin bout the way things should be
Ooooh I – I’m gonna stop the illusion
I’m the cut the confusion – baby listen to me…

I’m ready for the real thing
The real thing
I’m ready for the real thing
The real thing

Beauty queens in movie scenes in magazines
Don't really mean that much to me
I'm trying to tell you
You've got something genuine
And they can't wear the skin you're in, baby
You've got the real thing

We’ve been together now three months or so
But I fell in love with you like three years ago
It must have been your energy it must have been your glow
I knew that you would be la reina de me corizon
Que fuerte bonita te quiero mamasita
I wanna tell it to ya every second that I see ya
I wanna scream it from the top of machu pichu
Peel you like a banana and eat you
(chorus chords)
I need you my sweet tooth has a cavity
And every time you’re gone I feel a lack of gravity
We go together so mathamagically
Imagine all the different places that we’re gonna see together
Gonna be together, climb trees together, even eat together
But not of the same loaf – we both gotta focus on ourselves
But you know I’ll be there for you anytime you need help…

Ooooh I – been spending a lot of time
Being stuck in my mind – thinkin bout the way things should be
Ooooh I – I’m gonna stop the illusion
I’m the cut the confusion – baby listen to me…

I’m ready for the real thing
The real thing
I’m ready for the real thing
The real thing...
Track Name: Simple City
Everyday I find myself in a struggle
Living in a modernized bubble
I try to get along, try to stay out of trouble
But it’s hard when I’m living in a concrete jungle

And when I go to the grocery store
It’s hard for me to find what I’m looking for
They don’t care about me anymore
They don’t care about we anymore

I said the industry – it’s killing me
It’s making things more difficult than they’ve gotta be
They care more about money than about my body
More about power than about energy

The industry – it’s killing me
It’s making things more difficult than they’ve gotta be
They don’t care about me anymore
Oh they don’t care about me…

I wanna live in a simple city
Where there’s a garden with enough to feed my people in it
And we don’t gotta be the richest or the biggest either
As long as we’ve got what we need

I believe in a land where everyone begins to understand
Mother nature is the teacher – learning from every creature
Not concerning ourselves with money because it is the great deceiver

And sometimes I forget – The whole monetary system is arisen out of debt
Imagine if we all gave what we get – If we got what we gave it would be different
Sometimes I forget – The whole monetary system is a bunch of bullsh*t
What if we all gave what we get – If we got what we gave it would not be the same…

DUB (ft Estee Nack)

I wanna live in a simple city
Where there’s a garden with enough to feed my people in it
And we don’t gotta be the richest or the biggest either
As long as we’ve got what we need
We don't want more than we need...
