Lyrics by John Zay Music by John Zay with Angelo Moore & Jack Stein Sitting on top of water with a smile From point to peak I think it must be a mile Losing reality Caught up in mystery A sense of wonder has taken over me Leading myself into a world with no end From dusk ‘til dawn the sand becomes my friend You move my body And we become so alive I look at you I feel the will to survive Long Enough This is not the time to hesitate Wanderlust She is my seductress I can’t wait There are no words to explain who I am I am that I am - am I that I am We are who we are Are we who we are? It takes a minute To realize that we’re all from the stars Long Enough This is not the time to hesitate Wanderlust She is my seductress I can’t wait woh oh oh woh oh -head down to the water -yea, to the healing waters -yea, to the mother ocean

Step into the love that flows through you each day Like a million suns that lead you on your way This is the now this is the melting eye The Grand Illusion spread across the sky This is the feeling that won't go to rest and all of our spirits being put to the test Beyond this black gold sea where nothing divides you and me Step into the love that flows through you each day Like a million suns that lead you on your way This is the end of time the real design The moment of truth where we all align This is the distance that's between you and me facing the lessons that will set us free Beyond all these boundaries where nothing divides you and me Step into the love that flows through you each day Like a million suns that lead you on your way Down to the bottom I'm wondering when you'll come up for air Beyond this black gold sea where nothing divides you and me Beyond all these boundaries where nothing divides you and me Step into the love that flows through you each day Like a million suns that lead you on your way

Yours and Mine Music and Lyrics by John Zay Beyond the place that we've left behind Beyond the thoughts that cloud our time Take away the picture and let deep space appear A waterfall knows where to meet peace Yours and mine are the stars in the sky Are the trees in the light and the shadows that hide Yours and mine are the dreams in the night That channel the divine into our lives This is yours and mine The clock is ticking there's no time left to waste Our mind's are racing just to keep up with the pace Don't fight the current cause we're not in control We share a voice baby we're already home Yours and mine are the stars in the sky Are the trees in the light and the shadows that hide Yours and mine are the dreams in the night That channel the divine into our lives This is yours and mine Bring me your love I can feel your heart beat with mine When we're apart I can hear your voice inside Beyond the place that we've left behind Beyond these thoughts that cloud our time Don't fight the current cause we're not in control We share a voice baby we're already home Yours and mine are the stars in the sky Are the trees in the light and the shadows that hide Yours and mine are the dreams in the night That channel the divine into our lives This is yours and mine

Father’s Daughter Lyrics & Music By John Zay He rests his head on water Flows with is soothing sound Below some fathers’ daughter Gives him his first crown He swims into her stare She takes him to her eyes Fingers through her hair Reflections of her sighs Lets be one Take my heart to the sun Differences pull the reigns But children inside relate Freedom dives through disorder And worry has to wait So he takes some fathers daughter And gives her, her first kiss Beneath the soothing water Above the clouds in bliss Lets be one Take my heart to the sun Lets be one Take my heart to the sun

You Asked 05:40
You Asked Music and Lyrics by John Zay I want you to hear this I’m calling out your name Been trying to reach you for months nothing is the same I’ve lost my interest feels like I’ve lost my mind Sometimes I wonder how we walk through this life blind I tricked them and failed wound up right inside their jail In order to survive I’m up for sale So now my hands are dirty and my fists are clenched I’ve lost my reason, I don’t know what’s next I’m scared to run, I don’t want to hide My mind is tearing me up inside You asked You wanted to see if I’ve had enough You should have known Think fast I’m looking for a reason not to go You better know The town feels empty The streets are a mess The trees are reaching out they tell us what is next The lies of shadows are knocking on our doors The children wander cause they’ve lost their way home I wish for peace But I don’t know what that really means When I see so many people giving up on their dreams And as hands line my pockets when I ‘m in distress All the while ignoring this mess I want off the grid, no power supply I’m sick of greed, deceit and lies You asked You wanted to see if I’ve had enough You should have known Think fast I’m looking for a reason not to go You better know

Let's Fall In Love Again Music and Lyrics by John Zay Let’s fall in love again I think we should Time To Romance Again Like We Used To I have given my life to you I've tried for you and cried for you Future memories are what we make I'm not alone in this thing I'm giving up the reigns Now I won't be afraid to stand anymore They don’t know what it takes to be true So surprised when they see me come through I don’t care it’s the little things you do So let’s go home - I will share my world with you Make me feel whole again Help me come through You are my sacred eye with you I feel there is no time Nowhere to start no place to ever end Let me be the man I can Even when I don't understand Let's fall in love again They don’t know what it takes to be true So surprised when they see me come through I don’t care it’s the little things you do So let’s go home - I will share my world with you - - When I'm broken you're there When I'm scared you care When I need You I listen for the answers to come When I'm broken you're there When I'm scared you stare into my heart Into my soul I see it's all I need My Love.... Help me through, Help me through I Love You.....

Ceremony 05:28
Ceremony Lyrics and Music by John Zay Knowing Feeling Sensing you’re not alone Loving Being Finding your way back home There’s no one around nowhere else to go She helps you remember what you already know Touching Seeing Letting yourself feel the pain Talking Healing Trusting inside that you’re ok Hands to the ground feet on the clay There’s nothing that she can’t take away And I’m the wind that howls Through you at night And I’m the moon that holds you Up to the light

about

First of all I would like to Thank You for checking out this Album, the First Volume of a Two Volume Album Series. This music is the reflection of my introduction into Shamanic Plant Medicine work during my five years of living in Los Angeles. It all started with a book I read in 2007 by Daniel Pinchbeck while on a 2 month cross country tour called “2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl”. It was in that book that I was introduced to Shamanic practices from the Amazon and Africa using sacred plant medicines in a way that I really responded to. After the tour I arrived in LA in an old white van freshly spray painted from Brooklyn and I just wasn't ready to go back to NY - I didn't really want to. All it took was an invitation from my brother to help him move while exploring what I could do in LA and a few month stint turned into.....well a bit longer. Those five years were easily the most transformative of my life so far. They also seemed to go by in an instant. Little did I know I was about to embark on a journey well beyond anything I knew or even thought was possible….
