Story

this pays homage of a sort to the bravery - regardless of motivation - of all who get up and 'have a go' when it comes to performing. It's a real homage - no irony no mockery.

Lyrics

YEA PRETTY AS A PICTURE WINNING ALL THE PRIZES PLEASED WITH YOUR SELECTION WALK THIS WAY, WALK THIS WAY GAMES OF CHANCE GAMES OF LIFE'S ROMANCING GAMES TO TAKE YOU DANCING OOH OOH OOH ...

I CANNOT STAY WITH CRAZY LET’S SAY YOU WERE BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON LET’S SAY YOU WERE BORN WITH NO SUN AND NO MOON LET’S SAY YOU WERE BORN WITH NO ARMS AND NO LEGS LET’S SAY YOU WERE BORN AS THE TRUE BUDDHA’S EGG BABY ... HOW CAN WE RISE ABOVE THIS…….. THE THORNS AND THE ROSES, PREDICTABLE POSES. UNFAIRNESS OF LIFE AND WHO GETS THE KNIFE............... WHAT DO I DO WHEN I NEED THAT LIFELINE TALK TO THE GOD WHO IS NOT JUST IN MY MIND WHERE IS THE CHOICE BUT TO PLAY WHAT I‘M GIVEN THIS IS THE CHOICE AND I AM FORGIVEN IF IT’S ‘BABY..I DIDN’T QUITE GET THAT MEANING’ ‘’ I HAVE WHAT I NEED.’ ..... ARE MY EARS DECEIVING’ LETS SAY YOU WERE BORN IN THE EYE OF A STORM, LETS SAY YOU WERE BORN ON A STILL SUMMERS MORN LETS SAY YOU WERE CAUGHT IN THE TEETH OF A GALE, LETS SAY YOU WERE BORN WAY BEYOND THE PALE BABY.....TAKE IT ON BOARD FOR LATER BABY THIS COULDN’T CUT MUCH DEEPER BABY..I DO NOT SING THIS LIGHTLY ......... BABY THIS COULDN’T COME MUCH SWEETER

my child was in distant parts and dangerous times. It's 2 minutes of lovely ballad, small enough to attach to an email to someone you love who is not home as yet.

Story

I was listening to the radio - a BBC news snippet about a group of children who were asking world leaders of the calibre of Desmond Tutu about the future and their place in that uncertain future. His response was that they also had their part to play - as do we all. I had a momentary flash where the power of the idea that our moment is NOW and now I'm in a future where THAT moment is the past and Now I'm in that future..... makes more sense in the song I hope :)

Lyrics

THIS TRUST I HEARD THIS MESSAGE FROM SOME CHILDREN ..... ON THE RADIO THEY WERE ASKING OF THEIR ELDERS.....SHOW US THE WAY, SHOW US THE WAY I BRING A MESSAGE FROM THE FUTURE - I KNEW NOT I WAS IN THE PAST WE ONLY HAVE THIS PRESENT MOMENT - O PARADOX - THIS WILL NOT LAST. BUT YOU FIND THE WAY AND YOU CARRY THE LIGHT ............THAT REFLECTS FOR US TODAY YOU FIND THE WAY AND YOU CARRY THE LIGHT ……… WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS.....THEY HAVE A WORLD IN WHICH TO GROW THIS DARKNESS WILL NOT LAST FOREVER YOU SENSE WHAT WE DO KNOW, WHAT WE DO KNOW YOU ARE A LINK INTO THE FUTURE .. THIS IS NOT ALL THERE REALLY IS .......WE SEND YOU GENUFLECTION .......TO INDICATE ..... YOUR PLACE IN THIS SO GRIEVE AND BELIEVE BUT DO NOT BE DECEIVED YOU STILL HAVE TO TAKE YOUR PART YOU FIND THE WAY AND YOU CARRY THE MEANS ... THAT SO RENEWS OUR HEART HALLELUIAH HALLELUIAH HALLELUIAH HALLELUIAH HALLELUIAH HALLELUIAH HALLELUIAH HALLELUIAH all x 2 I BRING A MESSAGE FROM THE FUTURE - I KNEW NOT I WAS IN THE PAST WE ONLY HAVE THIS PRESENT MOMENT - O PARADOX - THIS WILL STAND FAST. THERE IS THE HOPE THAT BURNS ETERNAL .....IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BURN FOR ME I HEARD THIS MESSAGE FROM SOME CHILDREN ... IT CAME FROM ALL ...... HUMANITY.

Story

for Aboriginal Australia, the word Dreaming has a meaning far in excess of what the rest of the world considers dreaming.

Lyrics

“WHITE MEN HAVE NO DREAMING” WHITE MEN HAVE NO DREAMING x 3 HAVE TWO EYES BUT NOT FOR SEEING - HAVE TWO EARS BUT NOT FOR HEARING HAVE TWO FEET BUT NOT FOR TREADING - HAVE THE LAND BUT KNOW NO COUNTRY BLACK MAN TELLS ME OH SO BLUNTLY - WHITE MEN HAVE NO DREAMING THESE WORDS HAVE ALTERED MEANING x 3 STOPS ME IN MY WAY OF BEING - TELLS ME THAT I’M HARD OF HEARING SHOWS THE FLIGHT BUT LEAVES ME STANDING -- SEES A STEP WHICH CAN BE TAKEN IS A VOICE WHICH NEEDS BE SPOKEN - WHITE MEN HAVE NO DREAMING TAKE ME FORTY GENERATIONS AND I’M BACK ON SACRED GROUND AND KNOW A REAL CONNECTION TO THE BEINGS ALL AROUND WE LOST THAT DEEP PERCEPTION AND THAT COUNTRY IS NOT FOUND BUT IT NEVER REALLY ENDED, JUST SUSPENDED FOR A TIME NEVER WAS SUSPENDED, THAT WAS ONLY IN OUR MIND NEVER COULD BE ENDED, WE JUST ETHNICALLY CLEANSED OUR MIND ….. FEW MEN WILL KNOW THEIR DREAMING x 3 BLACK OR WHITE TO FIND THAT MEANING. … WE CAN NAME IT MYTH AND LEGEND YOU CAN NAME IT OUR PERCEPTION…. THIS IS NOT ABOUT BELIEVING THIS IS NOT ABOUT DECEIVING … IF ONE MAN CAN HAVE A DREAMING JUST THE SAME AS IN YOUR MEANING….. ONE, THEN ALL COULD SHARE THIS DREAMING ONE THEN ALL COULD SHARE YOUR MEANING
