Symbiosis/Frugal lyrics

Frugal/Symbiosis lyrics



Frugal

I’ve got cupboards full of things,
That I never use so I won’t ,
Buy anything, anything more.

I’ve got draws full of stuff,
I want rid, I’ve had enough so I won’t,
Buy anything, anything more.

Sometimes when evening comes I meditate,
Then all I need quickly comes in waves of love...

I’ve got friends and family,
I’ve got friends and family,
So I won’t buy anything, anything else.

I’ve got love in my heart,
I’ve got love in my heart,
So I won’t buy anything, anything more.

Sometimes when evening comes I screen stare,
But then when morning comes I want you to know
That I care.

I’m frugal, frugal
So I won’t buy anything, anything more...

Symbiosis

The swallow skims the river bend,
takes insects from the breeze.
The heron dips for a fish,
Under willow trees.

Life in death, death in life,
all is intertwined.
You might not know it but
every life is tied.

Why do humans, try to work against,
the curvature of nature?
All connected, perfect coexistence,
Take the path of nonresistance , be free.

Mess around with D.N.A, make the pets appealing
Humanised, flattened smiles, they’ve got trouble with their breathing.
Straighten out the wonky veg, chuck out imperfections
Make them all look the same, selective vivisection

Why do humans, try to work against,
the curvature of nature?
All dependent , perfect symbiosis
Make love your only focus, be free
take only what you need.

Make Your Own (Album Lyrics)




Greg Genre - Make your Own (Album Lyrics)
Raising money for Musicians Without Borders 

Realigion

If your glass is half empty then fill it to the top,
Don't hold back on the love just release the stopcock,
Restricting you to sharing love with just one group,
Because they believe in the same belief systems as you.
Do we even have a clue to what our rituals mean?
If you say this or that maybe God will be seen.
Wear certain clothes or particular robes
And hear the holy words preached once a week.

I see God in every being,
Knowing that everything that's living has divinity within.
Give praise to everyone that I meet,
Because they share the same streets and all have a heartbeat.
I don't need to compete with your particular beliefs,
There are so many ways to find happiness and peace.
Like tributaries flowing into the one sea,
All meandering a path to infinity, Inevitably,
 leading to the evolution of the heart
The universal union, come and take your part.
Put your nationality down as the whole Earth
And reincarnation as your date of birth.

I get up early in the morning,
I sing for peace and love for everyone and everything,
Peace and love for everyone and everything,
Peace and love.
You might call it religion, I call it realigion
This is true living, sharing peace and love.

I can worship God in a church, mosque temple of synagogue
It doesn't matter to me.
Because God is within not Without,
Not shouting down commands high up in the clouds.
So if you want to be devout, look for answers within not without
the wisdom that doesn't need to shout,
above the competition.

Ramakrishna found truth via different directions,
Choose your own path until you reach perfection.
Vivekananda said that realisation is key,
doctrines, rituals all secondary.
Whatever helps you realise,
All is intrinsically tied, behind the surface divides
So be the bridge and not the wall,
Connect the dot to dots and love all.

I get up early in the morning,
I sing for peace and love for everyone and everything,
Peace and love for everyone and everything,
Peace and love.
You might call it religion, I call it realigion
This is true living, sharing peace and love.

Make Your Own

Paint pictures for the fun of painting pictures,
Make music for the joy of making a sound.
Yet here am I, trying to make a product,
To buy and sell, to store on a shelf, well...

Don't buy this, make your own, make your own.
No gift list, make your own, make your own, your very own.

I know that, I know that you need me.
We buy so much to show that we care.
But the material things create another argument,
When the presence of you is the only present that I need, so...

Don't buy this, make your own, make your own.
No gift list, make your own, make your own, your very own.

Only Home We Have

On this tiny dot in space, we live as a race
That thinks all this exists for no purpose.
Yet how many lives have survived, for you to be alive,
Your heart beats on and on, you don't notice.

You just look up to the sky,
Look for a meaning to life in the stars.
Search a galaxy to find what's hidden inside.

Something's got to change
On this world of ours.
We're building rocket ships
While our children starve
There's no point in fixing the mirror
If it's you with the break.
Is this the only home we have, the only home we have

The dark matter excites,
Those unknown delights.
They tempt you to get near.
Your eyes fixed on the scope,
You lose touch with whats close, to you
Befriend an alien, forget your family.

While another species dies, we look for new life on mars.
While another species dies, we look for new life.

Something's got to change
In this world of ours.
We're building rocket ships
While our children starve
There's no point in fixing the mirror
If it's you with the break.
Is this the only home we have, the only home we have

Continuous Miracle

Every thought that you think creates a ripple, it's simple,
Like a stone thrown into water makes a wave,
Every thought can influence the world to change,
You have the power within, to universally rearrange,
If you control your thoughts,
Don't rely on external situation,
Then in any situation there can be no manipulation,
Because you will be creating yourself,
Instead waiting to be guided or directed by somebody else,
Don't the fears of mind control your life,
The thought of what other people think of you
Might create some strife,
But you're really infinite in potential,
Not limited by the who, what, when or why questions,
Go beyond the five senses don't try to explain,
Why you want to follow the intuitional part of the brain,
That's really not the brain but the heart,
Which views all as one reality not just separate parts.

I can only say what I think,
Then what think I do,
You might not know it but there are thoughts
In control of you.
If you identify with your body, if you identify with your mind,
Take a trip away from ego,
Feel the connection between every life,
The universal has no divide,
How many lifetimes will it take for you to find
This Continuous miracle?

When asking myself the question who am I?
In the past I've tried to define who I am with some many labels,
My job role, political position and religion,
But in reality these labels only describe a prison,
Which surrounds the true me constantly changing and evolving,
Reshaping to suit every situation and problem,
Unlearning the knowledge of my education

escaping the cage of seeking group validation.

Sometimes I sing out of tune just to tune up my ears,
Beyond the frequencies programmed by my peers,
Instead of waiting for a particular circumstance to dance,
I just dance, confront my fears and take a chance,
See the fancier your car the more time you're going to spend cleaning,
If you're interested in fashion the more time your going to spend preening,
Living in a permanent day dream in which
Your life is dictated by the limitations of reason,
If you want true freedom look inside for fulfilment,
Grow your own veg to give you the edge,
Write your own songs instead of waiting for your favourite band
To release their next one.

I can only say what I think,
Then what think I do,
You might not know it but there are thoughts
In control of you.
If you identify with your body, if you identify with your mind,
Take a trip away from ego,
Feel the connection between every life,
The universal has no divide,
How many lifetimes will it take for you to find
This Continuous miracle?

Box Box Box

Don't let your mind dictate all your choices,
Get out the social boxes,
Including, believe whatever you want to be believe in
But know that it's what you that's important.
Although we're led to identify with the external image,
It only leads to internal scrimmage
Creating artificial divisions,
Proliferating the wars,
Humanity is still down on all fours
When we forget our destiny and ignore telepathy,
Social necessities are getting the best of me,
I give preference to performance over truth
Believing everything that I see in the news,
Such as swine flu, so get in line for your injections
I call it vivisection of the soul,
When you're operating in sleep mode,
Your mind is in control of your soul,
Your loosing sight of your goals.

Box box box does anybody know the way out of the locks?

Box box box does anybody know the way out of the locks?

Every single answer is hidden within
Every single one of us not born with sin
We have so much purity to begin with
Will we be the same by the time that we're finished.
Because there are so many limits,
What's your religion, follow tradition
So you can place conditions on your ambitions.
To be matter of fact,
Stuck in the trap,
Don't stray from the path.
But relax, find your soul intact,
Take a step back before your mind reacts,
I don't have any cares every moment that I rap.
But you might find me on my sofa,
Lying about and loafing,
Not putting into practise what I preach, just hoping
For a means of coping, but I'm done with the coping
The time has come to focus on the openness of real change.


Box box box does anybody know the way out of the locks?

Box box box does anybody know the way out of the locks?

Box of the mind, box of religion, box of nationality,
Box of race, box of hate, box of sexual preference,
Box of rock, box of hip hop,
Box of what colour socks you've got on.
Box of politics, box of science,
Box of violence or of blind compliance,
Box box box, box box box,
Bo bo bo box box, even this song has got its own box,
I'm only using two chords I'm in a major major box,
I'm in a verse chorus, verse chorus box,
Box box box box box box

Crazy For Peace
Some go mad to have the latest products,
But I'm crazy for peace.
What you don't have may have a hold on you,
And I'm crazy for peace,
I'm crazy for peace of a lasting kind,
No temporary fixes that give only a quick kick
And then a low, a low

The birds sing for the blessing of a day,
I'm crazy for peace.
No difference if it's Friday or Monday,
I'm crazy for peace,
So let the wars cease,
The war in your own mind,
The artificial needs that try to keep
Your body occupied.

Why focus on recession or on depression, I don't listen
I begin to question, turn my attention to all my blessings
Steer the mind into a positive direction.
I'm blessed with good friends and family,
An optimistic mentality, have faith in the goodness of humanity
Created by the one God of love.
All is potentially Sat Chid Ananda, existence, wisdom, bliss you're true nature
If you see through the maya pursue more than selfish desires,
Serve and love those less fortunate,
Realise that true joy is permanent,
Instead of waiting for the fleeting pleasures turbulent, of your mind.

Why

At school we are taught so much useless factual information,
Not given the time or a chance to ask a simple question like,
Why, why
Stay in your place a compartmentalised space, put your hand up,
Stay in the line, don't you step out of line, and don't your dare stand up to ask,
Why, why

I know the dates of wars but I still don't know why we fight wars for,
I know the parts of a flower but I've never been into a garden to explore,
Tell me why, why
I've memorised the grammar rules, know all about subordinate clauses,
But I've never learnt how to use language to escape my own boredom,
Tell me why, why

Death by worksheet, listen and repeat,
Death by worksheet, listen and repeat,
Turn the unique concrete,
Memorise the facts for the test like everybody else does.

Death by worksheet, listen and repeat,
Death by worksheet, listen and repeat,
Turn the unique concrete,
Memorise the facts for the test like everybody else does.

Abundance

Right now let's feed the population of earth,
Right now let's quench everybody's thirst,
Right now let's change a system that doesn't work,
A manufactured fake reality, the scarcity curse.
They claim that there aren't enough resources here,
Yet billions are available for wars of fear.
Billions are available for nuclear bombs,
Or bailing out the banks in the credit crunch con.
Money created with the touch on a screen,
If we can do that, why not wipe all the debt clean,
Build an economy lasting and green,
Mother Nature's energy provided for free.
It doesn't matter where on earth you come from,
Or which ism or schism you live in,
There was one overarching system of money created as debt to imprison,
Let's have,

Abundance ,
Abundance for all,
Abundance, abundance for all,
Abundance, abundance

I envision a system more uplifting,
We can manifest all we need,
For the potential of the tree is hidden in a seed,
And in a hologram from every angle
The whole can be seen so go ahead and dream a dream,
Beyond what you've been programmed to believe, and let's have

Abundance,
Abundance for all,
Abundance, abundance for all,
Abundance, abundance

Heart Over My Head

Look into my eyes,
I see there's something divine in you,
Something divine and true,
That's never going to leave.

Hidden inside,
You know there's something divine in you,
That will never go, it won't leave your heart.

Do you know, do you know, do you know,
You have eternity to play with,
There's nothing that you cannot be.
When you know, when you know, when you know,
What's hidden inside of you,
There's a universe, nothing that you cannot do.

I want to use my heart over my head,
My heart over my head like you.
When you use your heart instead,
It's impossible to lose.

I have no enemies,
Me and my opponents are one,
We create art fresh like two halves of a baked scone,
With jam and cream on,
Doesn't matter where on earth you come from,
I'll see you as my sister or brother,
I don't see you as other,
So I'm removing aggression and transgressing
The stressing, when you live by the heart no need for nuclear weapons,
You begin to see life anew and clear, no one to hate or fear
Just bring the love back here.

I want to use my heart over my head,
My heart over my head like you.
When you use your heart instead,
It's impossible to lose.

Hygge

Did I direct today?
Or was my day misguided by all the advert campaigns,
That fill my screen like mind,
Constantly flickering and clicking,
To find something worthwhile,
But I cannot concentrate,
On my present state,
So won't you make me something new to consume,
And I'll take it, take it

The present moment is waiting for you to arrive,
The present moment is waiting for you to arrive,
For you
