about

Thank You for checking out this Album, the 2nd Volume of a Two Volume Album Series. This music is a continuation from 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 of what we westerners call a “Shaman”. 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, to find out the nature of the divine Feminine and 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

This is a re-release updated and remastered in 2017. All of the songs were conceived and recorded between 2010 & 2012.

Track Name: Mind's Eye
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
Track Name: Eshu Amania
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
Track Name: Thirteen Realms
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
Track Name: Yesterday Has Gone Away
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
Track Name: Here In This World
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 afaraid 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
Track Name: Yemaya
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
