Mind's Eye 03:45
Lyrics & Music by John Zay Fell into the longest dream I looked around and found the queen she was there, waiting for me all along Taken on a journey through both time and space nothing's a waste in the dark I felt a love so strong Welcome to your mind's eye feel free to look inside Welcome to your mind's eye it's time to take a ride I don't want to lose control when I feel like I'm falling apart Letting go becomes so hard when you don't know where to start You had chosen to go first you broke the ice it wasn't always nice the path was there by your design So welcome to your mind's eye feel free to look inside Welcome to your mind's eye you can see the pain go by I don't want to lose control when I feel like I'm falling apart Letting go becomes so hard when you don't know where to start This is our journey we fall into each others arms and we give ourselves freely to love...to love....to love

Eshu Amania 04:48
Eshu Amenia Music & Lyrics by John Zay Ah....Eshu Amania Walked on down the aisle with charisma and a smile On his head a hat one side was red the other black The sane appeared insane, got caught up in his game Reminded of the dream that nothing’s what it seems Who rolls the dice when it’s up in the air Let them fall to the ground, let them fall Who pays the price when we all seem to care Let them run to the cause, let them run Sat me by a tree then he told me what to see Looked into my eyes then he took me by suprise I woke up in a daze, my life had been a phase as if I read a book that told me how to look Who rolls the dice when it’s up in the air Let them fall to the ground, let them fall Who pays the price when we all seem to care Let them run to the cause, let them run Ah....Eshu Amania We don’t need a sign cause the writing’s on the wall We don’t need the time we’re just witnessing the fall Reflections show the lies you can see the trickster roam Smoke and mirrors Who rolls the dice when it’s up in the air Let them fall to the ground, let them fall Who pays the price when we all seem to care Let them run to the cause, let them run Ah....Eshu Amania

Thirteen Realms Music and Lyrics by John Zay Listen to the sounds of laughter Probing through your mind Sifting through the endless chatter All the madness dies Step into the True dimension Breaking open the head If you want the gifts of nature It’s time to wake up from the dead This is the time of wonder All the children take us by surprise Within the love discover Thirteen realms are opening our eyes Listen to the native elders Holding up the signs Given to us by creators To voice the silent cries Tune into the hum in your ears Gain the resource state Picking up the cosmic matter Speaking through your dna This is the time of wonder All the children take us by surprise Within the love discover Thirteen realms are opening our eyes One who trusts in love will find a way One who trusts in love will find a way This is the time of wonder All the children take you by surprise Within the love discover Thirteen realms are opening our eyes This is the time of wonder All the children take you by surprise Within the love discover Thirteen realms are opening our eyes

Yesterday Has Gone Away Music & Lyrics by John Zay If I could hold your your pain in the palm of my hand If I could feel my way through the distance of the past If I could look into the choices that you've made I would breathe right through the memories as they fade cause I appreciate your pain for you there is no shame so why don't you come home again If I could find a way to go back in time I would take your hand and tell you it's all right cause there is nothing I would change You're where you need to be today so why don't you come home again Yesterday has gone away Yesterday has gone away And If took the blame would it give back another day? And if I looked away would it help you to feel safe? Cause your lost in your mind and it's you I need to find so why don't you come home again Yesterday has gone away Yesterday has gone away Yesterday has gone away Yesterday has gone away

Yemaya 03:20
Yemaya Music and Lyrics by John Zay Eyes down on the world below Seems like everybody just wants to know What’s to come and what’s to go It makes a difference when you’re looking to grow I nearly lost my way but now I’m here to stay Eyes up to the heavens above seems like everybody's looking for love so much work but there’s never enough we weren’t put here just to buy all this stuff I nearly lost my way but now I’m here to stay Yemaya smooths rocks all the time she holds us up through the changing tides cradles us through the days and nights she gives us life when we’re looking to die I nearly lost my way but now I’m here to stay There's so much more at stake I nearly lost my way

Here In This World Music & Lyrics by John Zay To be in love is like a new day You take it on in every way You see the stars you see the sun at play You take her home and find out her name You let her in this isn’t a game You treat her well, you find that she treats you the same Frozen Lovers remember your dreams from the past The girl and boy decide to make it last Don't be afraid to open your heart up and ask The girl and boy decide to make it last And if you think there won’t come a day When love is cold and you don’t want to stay Then you may not want to give your heart away But all in all it comes down it this Forgiveness is the greatest risk So let it go, it could only take one kiss Frozen Lovers remember your dreams from the past The girl and boy decide to make it last Don't be afraid to open your heart up and ask The girl and boy decide to make it last Our time is here in this world You're the light in my life Frozen Lovers remember your dreams from the past The girl and boy decide to make it last Don't be afraid to open your heart up and ask The girl and boy decide to make it last Our time is here in this world You're the light in my life.......Here in this world

Valentine’s Day Lyrics & Music By John Zay Test Water, Test Water… I think about all the reasons that you are perfect for me I think about all the reasons I need you to feel me I want you to know I’ve waited for you I’ve waited for you; I’m done being through with our love My heart can’t take this anymore In the daytime At the nighttime With the evening sun At the break of dawn You’re in my mind In my mind I can feel you all the time Cause its the way your eyes Speak from inside Telling me you are mine In the daytime At the nighttime With the evening sun At the break of dawn You’re in my mind Give me some time To show you I'm here to stay I want to share with you I want to care about you Give me what I need - my love Mmm, my love, Mmm, my, my Ohh don’t go too far away There’s no reason to stray From your home it’s in your heart Everything else is just a false start In the daytime At the nighttime With the evening sun At the break of dawn You’re in my mind In my mind I can feel you all the time Cause its the way your eyes Speak from inside Telling me you are mine In the daytime At the nighttime With the evening sun At the break of dawn You’re in my mind Give me some time To show you I'm here to stay Baby Please don’t betray our love I’ve laid all my feelings out on the line I w ant nothing but the truth you hold inside Don’t throw it away Don’t throw it away – I love you It’s Valentine’s Day It’s Valentine’s Day....

about

Thank You for checking out this Album, the 2nd Volume of a Two Volume Album Series. This music is a continuation from “Wanderlust” Volume 1 reflecting my study of Shamanic Plant Medicine work during my five years of living in Los Angeles. It was in LA that I was introduced to ceremonial practices from the Amazon and Africa using sacred plant medicines. I set an intention to study down this path and eventually found my way into the hands of an incredible guide from a long Peruvian lineage. I initially entered this realm to work on myself but the process was so intensely healing that all aspects of my life were affected, from my relations with my family and friends to my sense of purpose and artistic expression through music. This album is the story of those experiences. It's about my heart opening on a quest towards vulnerability exploring the nature of the divine Feminine and Masculine to discover where my true strength culminates as a man. I am dedicating this music to all those who are on a path of self discovery and are courageous enough to embrace a deeper understanding of their creative nature......
-John Zay
