Lyrics

Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Krishna
Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Buddha
Through the winds of time
You have sent so many of Your sons
All reminding us how You wanted man to carry on
To love our brother and praise and sing to You
To remember that we’re a part of God, too
But those who talked to the ones You sent
Said that they were the only way
That only through them Could we find You again
Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Brahma
Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Akamba
My Lord how can You let them Twist Your words so
They go and kill your followers For no reason at all
Please show them that You are the same
No matter what they call You
You’re still the only God
There’s only You
Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Krishna
Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Buddha
Rama Allah Muhammad Christ
All the scriptures say the same
Love thy brother and Me always
There’s only one God
How can they be so blind? They close their eyes
Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Brahma
Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Aelohim Jehovah
Tao Vishnu Quetzacoatl
God, save us all

Lyrics

The sun came out and the day began
And we weren’t really sure
If we would find some peace inside
To drive us through the day
 
We want to live
To see our children really be free
Having their dreams
But we’ll have to fight with all we can give
Break the Chains and Occupy (6)
Our strings were pulled, the puppeteers
Won’t let us be
They force us to live in a cage
Of doubt and fear
We have to break the chains
Ignore the crumbs they left for us to sweep
Don’t confuse liberty
With the toys you have to play
While they are getting stronger every day
Break the chains and occupy (3)
The menace to all
Is the ignorance we have of everything
If we don’t fight today
Tomorrow will be – it will be too late
Break the chains and occupy (3)

Lyrics

This is all a material world
We want to have it all
We work very hard to give it away
We don’t know what we’re doing
Loosing focus of what’s going on
They have control of our minds

Buy one get two, pay as you can
In debt for the rest of your life
It doesn’t matter as long as you can buy the next fade

The mail box is full, but the forests are gone
Who cares about our children
If they’re going to survive
Not tonight, every thing is alright

Don’t pretend, Don’t fool yourself
It’s happening right before your eyes
Turn your TV off tonight
Leave your precious things behind
You have to take a stand and face it like a man

Turn around, you see the light
It shines right in your face – what’s there to buy?
Go ahead and grab it now
The price is right, it’s flying off the shelves

We don’t need so much to live
We can’t even close the closet door
Put a TV dinner in my bag for lunch
Did you know they’re good for you?
These labels don’t lie, they never, never lie
Hey look, only 50 calories, I’ll take six

Lyrics

I look at all those lonely people
I look at all those lonely people
Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church
Where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream

Waits at the window
Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All those lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All those lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night
When there's nobody there
What does he care?

All those lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All those lonely people
Where do they all belong?

I look at all those lonely people
I look at all those lonely people

Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands
As he walks from the grave
No one is saved
All those lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All those lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Lyrics

Aún recuerdo ese patio donde yo siempre jugué
Una casa amarilla para mí era Edén
En la mente de un niño el mundo vive para él
Con la madre a un lado protegiendo a su bebe
Y aún veo a mi madre y recuerdo con placer
Con sus sonrisas y palabras nada puede suceder
 
 
Y ahora que recuerdo entiendo el por qué
Ese era mi destino y te puedo agradecer
Porque aprendí de ti ha amar a la humanidad
Detesto la injusticia y no puedo callar
Entiende lo que siento y tu comprenderás
Tengo que seguir en esto y no puedo parar
Tu amor me da la fuerza En mi alma siempre estás ... Amá
 
 
Seguido yo recuerdo tantas cosas que viví
Quisiera compartirlas, que sepas quien yo fui
Hijo mío te invito a conocer mi interior
Quiero siempre estar contigo aunque sea en tu corazón
Que Dios siempre te guarde de peligros por allá D
e vez en cuando habla y dime como estás
No te olvides de este viejo que en su mente siempre estás
Mi niño

En mi mente siempre están

Lyrics

Blacks were enslaved, Indians betrayed
And Mexico was cut in half 
The May came in and so did rule
But most were in seven-year servitude
All of them were screwed, except the Governor
 
He had the land, millions of fields
And had poor men fighting to death
For promises of food
It didn’t matter North or South
The profits kept on pouring in to feed his greed
He wanted it all so the masses were corporized

Wall Street devours
It’s all a plan to take it all away from me
Once they have you they’ll close the door
So everything will be in their control
And history repeats itself year after year:
He who has the gold is the one that rules

Don’t ask me what their names are
Just read the proper literature
And dig in history, "A People's History"

Lyrics

Can I change the time of day?
Will the moon shine today?
How much do I really know?
Many mysteries yet to solve
Need more time to absorb it all
But there’s so much more I don’t know
I don’t know
Flowers bloom before my eyes
At the same time of day
How is this so? I don’t know
All I really want to say
Is make the best of every day
And look for answers everywhere
You have to be informed
You don’t have to conform
Find it on your own
So you will know without me saying so
‘Cause I don’t know
Flowers bloom before my eyes
At the same time of day
How is this so? I don’t know
 ‘Cause I don’t know

Lyrics

In Heaven I’ll walk to a door
And it will open for me
I’ll see many people there
Some that I’ve seen
 
In Heaven the smiles just don’t stop
 
In Heaven I’ll see a dog
And it will talk to me
And I will understand everything
 
In Heaven there is harmony
And places to go
From Heaven we will see
What we did below, oh
 
In Heaven is where we relax
As time passes by
And then it's time to go back
 
In Heaven we plan our next life
From Heaven we descend
Again to Earth
To learn what is Love

Tell me please how was your day
I really want to know
Mine was fine, a little problem
But it isn’t anymore
 
 
But I don’t want to talk of work
Because I’m sitting next to you
And all I’m thinking of
I want to be with you
You’re so beautiful
 
 
I never stop to be amazed
By what I see in you
You’re like a child
You live in a world
Always full of joy
 
 
What did I do to deserve you?
I’m strong because of you
And I can’t stop and think
I want to be with you
You’re so beautiful
 
 
You’ve turn my life around
And some may wonder how
This love of ours has survived
 
 
It has survived through all these years
And we sure are trying hard
We don’t want to be apart
 
 
So many things to see
And you’ll be there with me
Oh, yes, yes, yes 
You’ll be there with me

Lyrics

We were sitting in the couch, I turned the TV on
It was the story of a man like most we’ve seen before
He fell in love from the moment she appeared in his life
And he was sure she’d be with him, always by his side
Another story, another tale of love
 
It’s not easy finding words to tell you how I feel
To open up my heart and leave it vulnerable to you
To decide if I am worth spending all your life
No matter what you choose today, I’ll be happy with your choice
 
Because my love for your is real
And I’m happy being here today with you
I’m always saying silly thing
To try to make you laugh
To me you’re everything I need
I hope you feel as I
We were meant to live together
I would never trade my life
I will follow you forever
Just tell me what you want
 
Tell me that you feel the same
Whisper in my ear and say
I’m happy here
 
Looking back I remember just ten years or so
I played guitar for you and sang
The park was all we knew
And you stared at me for hours
I was everything to you
Then we lay next to each other
And you looked into my soul
 
Then I took you in my arms
You held me very tight
Your face was next to mine
And your silent lips said it all

I feel
And so do you
We are the same
And yet we’ve grown apart
Let’s make amends
 
Think of all the things that we can do
Work together hard
We can be as one
Work for everyone
Come on, on board
The party is getting started
Let’s go
 
No hay como el perdón
Que es la vida
Sino un reflejo de lo que queremos ser
Y que más que ser feliz
Perdonemos a todos
Esperemos nos perdonen también
Y también a nosotros mismos
¿Por qué no?
 
Let’s make amends
Let’s make amends
Come on
Come on
Let’s make amends
For everything we’ve done
Against each other

Lyrics

Mira, heme aquí
Piensa bien quien yo soy
 
Estoy desesperado
Y la noche no ha pasado
No sé que está pasando
Estoy solo aquí
 
Recuerdo esos momentos
No puedo olvidarlos
Y solo no me puedo imaginar
 
No sé que hice
No sé donde fallé
Perdóname si yo no soy aquel, él
 
Me dices que me olvide
que todo ha cambiado
Las cosas ya no pueden ser igual
 
Pero no estoy de acuerdo
Yo estoy enamorado
Y eso es lo que tiene que importar
 
Ámame de Nuevo
No olvides el pasado
Acércate a mí
 
Quizá mañana llegue
Quizá todo siga igual
Pero tú recuerda
Que todo está en ti
 
El mar de incertidumbre
Te lleva en la corriente
Pelea contra ella
Y acércate a mí
 
Convéncete que yo soy
El hombre que esperabas
Que iba a venir por ti

Lyrics

I remember you walking
You had your coat on
Your girl by your side
And you smiled
 
I remember your smile
When your laugh filled the air
Your arms were around me
And I felt safe
 
But things happened
They took you away
They said you were gone
And we cried – Hoping that you’d be alive
 
I remember your car
I was very young
You had several ladies
And you told them I was your son
 
I kissed every one
I felt like a man
That day you showed me
That woman were meant to be loved
 
But now your gone
I wish I could see you
Again in my life
Or in heaven – and then
We could start on this journey again
 
My mother’s life
Was broken in pieces
Our family was
Destroyed inside
 
We did not understand
That man lives forever
That one day we’d be  --  with you
My brother is alive -- I feel him inside
My brother is alive

Lyrics

Images that haunt my soul
Of silhouettes and veils that fly
Revealing pleasures
Obsessions of the mind
 
Your naked breast caresses my eyes
In your thighs my fingers twirl
Like animals, insatiable
 
Keep me back, I can’t control myself
Hold me in your arms
If you cover yourself and close your eyes
I’ll be restless tonight
 
Keep me back, I can’t control myself
Brace me with your arms
If you cover yourself and close your eyes
I’ll be helpless tonight
 
When your thoughts are full of lust
Your world becomes a cage
And you crave the moment
When she’ll be in your hands
 
Don’t let it take a hold of you
Let it go – before you go insane
 
A walk, a smile will turn me on
I can’t resist, you’re inside my veins
I’m becoming a toy for you
To play around with
 
And I’m trying hard
To keep you in my arms
My lips play with your ear
While my hand goes down your spine
Now you are mine

Lyrics

The day has come
I have to go
Your tears will run
And sadness will fill your heart
But you’re not alone
I’m next to you
You just can’t see me now
But I know you feel my warmth
We knew this day would come
And its hard – but life goes on
You feel the day will never end
Sometimes it’s so easy
To let sadness overcome
Remember when I said to you
If I’d departed first
I’d wait for you
And I’m waiting
Don’t be afraid
‘Cause one day
Again I’ll be with you
Close your eyes
Think of me
And I will come
To make you smile again
Death is just a part of life
And I’m waiting for you
To see the sun again
To see the sun again, in your eyes
To see the sun again

Lyrics

Morning began that day
And your scent was in the air
But you weren’t next to me
I wondered where you were
 
 
Looking outside I saw you sitting in your chair
Holding a picture while smiling musingly
My Life is meaningless if you’re not there
Stay with me
 
 
And I got close and saw the picture in your hand
It was the one we took the day we fell in love
We’ve lived so many days in perfect harmony
And I can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring
 
 
My life is meaningless if your not there
Stay with me
There’s still so much to share
 
 
I go to bed at night You’re laying in your robe
And then we pray to God For another day to come
If only we could spread the joy we feel inside
The world would be a place where no one had to cry
 
 
My life is meaningless if your not there
You’re the reason I wake up every day
Stay with me
Help me spread the word to everyone

Lyrics

Far away as my eyes can see
Beauty lies right in front of me
Children play and smile at everyone
They don’t know that soon the day will come
 
When they’ll be alone
To face what’s to come on their own
So here is my advice, it’s up to them to decide
 
You’ll have to take responsibility
If you are to determine what you’ll be
It won’t be easy if you don’t try
Nothing is free, you’ll soon learn why
 
That’s simply life, it never, never stops (4)
No one has a free ride (2)
 
And so the years went by
I grew to see that it was true
That nothing is as easy as it seems
 
We have to struggle hard
Sometimes we face deadlines
And yet we always seem to make it right on time
And that’s simply life – it never, never stops
 
And then we saw the fire come
It could be any house – even mine
We saw it all in flames
I wondered who’d be next
And then it came to me
 
No matter how hard we try
We cannot change what is to come
We simply ride it out
And hope that we’ll survive
 
My life is set in stone
And I will carry on, to meet my destiny

Lyrics

This is not a dream that you will wake up from
Everything you see is really happening
Read the news, piece together everything and you’ll see
Common sense is telling you that all their words are lies
 
 
They take away our freedom through the Patriot Act
They make it sound like its really good for us
But simply read the document
They got us by the balls
 
And nothing you can say will change anything
Unless you stand up for your rights
Forget the Constitution
The Common Law is the way to fight
 
We have been conditioned to believe
That government can regulate our behavior
But do you remember free will?
That is reflected in the Common Law
The right to proceed as you wish
So long as your actions don’t harm others
 
So find out what it is
Invoke it in your filings in court
Government can only regulate that which it creates
Like corporations; don’t be deceived
Let’s win our freedom back
Oh, and I wrote this song on the 4th of July
 
The law did not begin simply yesterday
Precedence takes it back centuries
And your Natural Rights
Existed then as well as now
It’s not only Habeas Corpus
The Magna Carta comes to mind

Lyrics

Don’t tell me that you don’t care
They’re bombing again tonight
They’re killing children
Destroying families, what a crime
 
The war machine is planning
A checkmate on the world
 
It’s the Middle East they want
To finally have control
Only three nations
Fighting endless wars
1984 is right now
 
Some stations recommend
We vote Democrat
But the two party system
Is under one control
It’s the new World Order
The old plan realized

Lyrics

The sky has cleared I see the sun
It’s light reflects in me a lonely town
I wonder whom I’ll see inside
Will it be a man or a child that was just born?
 
 
No greeting was in need
We knew exactly how they died
Like soldiers overseas
They die, their young
We cry, this war goes on

Lyrics

Anoche pudo ser un nuevo amor
Pero mi amada no me encontró
Vi miradas hacia me pero nada me gusto

 

¿Dónde puede estar mi hogar?
Ven de una vez a mí
No hay que esperar

 

El tiempo pasa ya
Con cada día mi vida se va
Necesito con quien platicar
Abro mi mundo, puedes pasar

 

Tanto tiempo sin amar
Mi cama triste ha de aguantar
Tan solo déjame imaginar
Que mañana aquí estarás        
Conmigo nada mas
Que fríos están tus pies, ven acá
Los voy a calentar

 

Tanto tiempo sin amar
Mi cama triste ha de aguantar
Tan solo déjame imaginar
Que este momento
Se nos va
Hay que aprovechar
 
No te alejes de mí
Ven Acá
¿A donde vas?
Ven acá

Lyrics

We fail to see
That labels are the same
No matter what it’s called
Things are the same
 
 
They make so called laws
For us to break
So any time they want
They can put us all away
 
 
All the isms are the same
It just varies by how free
You think you are
But we are slaves
Of this world’s elite
 
 
The United Nations has become their tool
We must break away from its rule
 
 
They impose their will on everyone
Even telling us what medicines to take
And when it pleases them
They’ll make us take a pill
Either we change our ways
Or we’ll be killed
Either we change our ways
Or we’ll be killed

Lyrics

We feel alone and left behind
As if there was no one out there for us
We dream and wake up every day
And there seem to be nothing we can change
 
But we have to try
We have to try
 
Somewhere we’ll find the one we need
Who’ll fill the emptiness we feel inside
It has to be, I surely believe
There's no miracles
You and I will find each other tonight
 
But we have to try
We have to try
 
Holding hands, look into your eyes
We find each other's hopes and desires
We have to try
 
Look beyond, see yourself
For what you are
If you don’t like what you see
Change your path
 
We have to become what we want
Don’t give up
Don't give up
Don't give up
 
But we have to try

Why are they running?
Where are they going?
There’s really nowhere to hide
They’re not going to survive
 
 
Is there anything we can do?
Can we even pray?
It doesn’t matter now, we’re dead
Only time will tell when
 
 
Look exactly where you are
You can’t feel safe
But we’re the ones
That got us in this mess
We don’t belong here In hell

Lyrics

You are nature’s child
Trying to find the way
If you’re nature’s child
Care for mother earth
 
I see it all
The beauty is there
I saw the light of God
Reflected in the sand and sea
 
Then I recalled
The wonders that I’ve seen
From gardens to forest
And infants
Next to birds and streams
 
There is so much
That we’ve been given to oversee
After all this might be our home
For a good part of eternity
You are nature’s child
Trying to find the way
If you’re nature’s child
Care for mother earth
 
So let’s set a date
To talk of what to change
Only then will Mother Nature
Claim us a the child
That was destined to take care of Her
 
A place where every living thing
Can flower to become
What it was meant to be
Cafe Peyote
Words & Music Ricardo Beas

Lyrics

There’s good and bad but never in between
You always know exactly what the right thing is
Don’t tell me that you didn’t understand
You’ve made your choice and now it’s yours
From now on that will determine who you are
Do you really know?
 
 
Defeated are those that run and hide
Success if for those who don’t give up
But exactly what is it that you want
Is it only money or is there more to life?
You have to make up your mind
 
 
So don’t come to me and give me any bull
I had my share, and it was hard but it was good
Because now I know and no one can fool me
But they’re coming straight for you
You’ll soon see, they want everything
 
 
We really let it get out of hand
Placed our trust in other men so we could go and play
The land of the free is no more
Too many regulations and every day they add more
Without us knowing we are helping in our fall
 
 
If you don’t like what your neighbor does take him to court
How could he dare to make your life uncomfortable?
America has lost its tolerance for the rest of the world
 
 
If only I could draw a picture of a perfect world
I’d make sure that everyone had an opportunity to grow
There wouldn’t be injustice for any one at all
No one would stand still if they saw their brother fall
 
Is it really hard to understand
That we all need love as much as anyone?
 
 
If only I could draw the face of God
I’d see every single human being, no one left behind
We have to make a change, maybe make some sacrifice
Don’t do it for you and me, do it for those that will come
They will inherit what we leave behind
