Track Name: Mars / 60,000 Trips (feat. Nived3rd)
Mars
© Here II Here

(V1)
Closer than you've ever been, I see red
You could very well be the heart of our familiar skies
They named you after war, but I feel peace
At a certain point distance fades with your eyes

(Pre Chorus)
687 Days in a year, gives us more time
To be near
And while everybody's trying to reach the stars
I passionately reach for Mars

(Chorus)
I stare into the sky, I refuse to blink my eyes
I don't want to wait another 60,000 trips around the sun
I see you in my dreams, lover of extremes
I don't want to wait another 60,000 trips cause you're the one

(V2)
T'was so hard to resist, but I've been pulled
I've been pulled into your orbit a gravitational embrace
They say you're not alive but I know best
Life is ever present like the rust on your face

(Pre Chorus)

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Your Martian skin, spins in the Great Heavens,
forms in motion floating fourth planet from the sun,
funny how me and you seem to be One,
With you I'm bound, Mountain climbing on the Olympus Mound,
I found inner calmness away from Human hysteria,
colder than Antarctica, dryer than the Sahara
The Era will come oxygen domes on your surface,
eating organic space salads
drinking geo thermal spring water
No thought, No mind,
MySelf makes you unwind,
real or unreal, you feel or think you feel,
Don't call me anything but yourself,
Beyond the range of wordly discourse
Thought you knew, thought you knew yourself,
When the mirror has nothing to reflect,
not a single object to neglect, and let's not dissect,
but let it be Windex sprayed clear
Let these vibrating auras bend, shape and mold your Atmosphere

(Chorus X2)
Track Name: Nobody Is A Victim Here
Nobody is a Victim Here!
©2010, HERE II HERE

Your peace isn't dependent on the rest of the world yet the peace of the world is solely up to you
Your eyes have all the power to transform what they see, if they focus on the war
Who the hell is gonna see the Peace

So rise up people and see with the eyes of your soul
Let's rewrite history, erase all the lies we have told cause

Chorus
No body is a victim here
No body is a victim here
No body is a victim
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery like Bob Marley


The mind is like a prisoner who won't use the key it would rather be enslaved than to set itself free
It locks itself in memories and complaints about now always talking always screaming so it can't hear the sound
So raise your voices and sing from the silence within
There's nothing more powerful
Than a people who knows who they is
Ohhhhh

Chorus

Bridge
You're not a victim of the Government
A victim of the church
You're not a victim to the beings that contributed to your birth
You're not a victim of Society
A victim of some race
Not a victim not a victim
There's no victim in this place

You're not a victim of the rapist, or the murderer or thief
You're not a victim to the fear that causes souls to lie and cheat
You're not a victim of your body
A victim of disease
Not a victim not a victim
Till you believe the thoughts you think!

Chorus
Track Name: Dance Of Liberation
Dance of Liberation

I was never the one to twirl around and shake until I'd scream
I was never the one who allowed these limbs to move in ecstasy
I was never the one who'd enjoyed being possessed by life's heart beat
I was too busy being afraid and clinging to my seat ohh

But then someday I just got up and I'm not coming down
Not coming down
I'm not coming down

Chorus
And now I dance
The dance we're all dancing
Surrendered all control
To what's breathing me
And when I dance this dance
The whole world dances with me
This is the dance of liberation

You're the only DJ that holds the key
It's up to you to free this beat
Gotta free this beat
Gotta free this beat
Gotta free this beat
Gotta free this beat

Verse 2-
I was never the one to say hello and look love in the eye
I was never the one to dance inside with joy until I cried
I was never the one to shine my light brighter through the dark times
I was too busy concerned with all the ways I'd try to hide

But then one day my soul flew out and it's not coming down
Not coming down
No not coming down

Chorus
And now I dance
The dance we're all dancing
Surrendered all control
To what's breathing me
And when I dance this dance
The whole world dances with me
This is the dance of liberation

You're the only DJ that holds the key
It's up to you to free this beat
Gotta free this beat
Gotta free this beat
Gotta free this beat
Gotta free this beat

Shamanic Bridge

Chorus
Track Name: Promising For All
Promising For All
©2010, HERE II HERE


We do some unthinkable things
To each other
All because we think to much
Enslave and kill our sisters and brothers
In the name of heavens bluff

Pre-Chorus
Oh we lie to protect the lies of our fathers
And we die to protect the fears of our mothers
And we kill to ensure we don't ever face the unknown
When that's the only face we've ever known

Chorus
Where is the space?
Where is the freshness?
For a new horizon to arise in the dream of our species
Gotta trust the unknown before we can hold on to a tomorrow
That is promising for all

We think we can own the world when possessions
Aren't even real
So blind to the abundance of now
Our own freedom
Is all we ever could steal

Pre Chorus

Chorus

Outro
All means All
There's no way to exclude, separate,
All means All everyday,
For the human race I pray.
Track Name: That's All
THAT’S ALL
©2001 Here II Here

(verse 1)
I can see our paths are turning different ways
Even though we’re headed for the same place
Something in your kiss is missing don’t know why
Well I don’t need to know I think this is goodbye
I have to admit that I’m still holding on
And my hands of flesh are also hands of light
Your laugh will always be my favorite song
I’ll hear it in the wind while making love tonight

(chorus)
No matter what you do
You’re always gonna love me
No matter what you say
Your words are gonna help me
No matter where you go
We’ll always be together
Separation does not exist
All is One and that’s all there is

(verse 2)
There are no hard feelings I’m a little scared
And on an open road that leads to nowhere
This is all so silly yet so natural
What we’re going thru will only help us grow
I used to think that I would fall apart
That without you here I’d be lost in the dark
You were just reflecting that which shines in me
I watched you drive away this is what’s meant to be

(chorus repeat)

(bridge)
To some degree you I’ll miss
The truth is I can’t seem to find an end to our first kiss
Track Name: Ego? (feat. Alexander & Bryancito)
Who’s Got a Problem with the Ego?
©2009, Here II Here

Who's got a problem with the ego?
Who's got a problem with the mind?
It's like saying infinity, gets its panties in a twist over time

Who's got a problem with emotions
Who's got a problem with feeling down
It's like saying the endless sky
has a problem with each cloud

Chorus:
Who's got a problem with the ego? Ohh ohhh ohh
Who's got a problem with the mind? Eya Eya Eyahnd X 2
Who's got a problem with the mind? You look and no one you will find. Who's got a problem with the mind?

Who's got a problem with the body?
Who's got a problem with its name?
It's like saying the ocean, has a problem with each wave

Who's got a problem with the thoughts?
Ohhh even if there's a million of them
You can push and fight till you realize
That the only thing that's got beef with the mind is the mind!

Chorus:
Who's got a problem with the ego? Ohh ohhh ohh
Who's got a problem with the mind? Eya Eya Eyahnd X 2
Who's got a problem with the mind? You look and no one you will find. Who's got a problem with the mind?

** THE RAP

Alexander (Alex Perez)

Ego, me problem with the ego
What happened to them happy days
I'm so amazed where did we go
We decided to grow
Blossoming into this brain that's insane when it thinks it Knows all in absolute it's deranged

You got a problem with yo ego
You got a problem with yo mind
You got a problem with a problem
You wanna solve 'em all the time

Time bro you see the time is now
I said Love yo don't need to take a bow
I've heard some stuff though but this is whack by far
Said this is whack by far

It's like my heart telling my blood
You gotta stay in the veins
Don't even think about an entrance
This is not your domain

Man that's the silliest shhhh I've ever heard it's a joke
Spark up this ego story
Watch it go up in smoke


Bryancito (Bryan Reeves)

It seems like forever I've been wrestling with ego
FIGHT! FIGHT!
That's the only mode I really know?!?!
But when I stop, breathe .. take a look around
Ain't nothing here but ever-present holy ground
Now I'm back to the start seeing with new eyes living from the heart
The birds the bees infinite galaxies
Every single second exponential possibilities
Jump jump throw your hands to the sky above SCREEEEAM
... Everything is already love!!!
So when u think something's wrong check check check yourself and come back to this song
Destined for nothing but self acceptance
every war U fight is with yourself we all innocent
Dive into reality life is so Rico  
Give up the fight and make peace with the ego!!!
Track Name: Inner Child
Inner Child
© Here II Here 2010

Inner child still afraid
Hiding from the rainy days
You are still here, regardless of fear
Inner child my sweet child
Trembling still after all these years
You've done nothing wrong
It wasn't your fault

Can you sense deep down
Beyond the stories of a past
That it wasn't you and your soul
Remains untouched Ohhh

Chorus-
Pure light shines through
All the memories of you
And the world is yours again
Pure light shines through
Every broken piece of you
Now your soul is whole again
Now your soul is whole again

Inner child still confused
It's yesterday that holds each bruise
Innocence is here, even with all these tears
Inner child my sweet child
Your stronger than you ever thought
The heart can bear it all
In love is where all falls

Can you sense deep down
Beyond the stories of a past
That it wasn't true and your soul
Remains untouched Ohhh

Chorus-
Pure light shines through
All the memories of you
And the world is yours again
Pure light shines through
Every broken piece of you
Now your soul is whole again
Now your soul is whole again

You're whole again where you've always been

Home again where you've always been
Track Name: Wings
Wings
©1999, INNER VOICE / HERE II HERE

I don't ever need to worry anymore
I know that you're okay
Like a child playing next to the seashore
Running with the waves

Enjoy yourself in Paradise
Learn all you could learn
Share the love that's in your eyes
And know I'm not concerned
Because ...

CHORUS
Every time you leave my arms
You take my wings with you
You could never be too far
They'll always follow you
You leave my arms and take my Wings with you

Look up at the sun and there you'll see my face
Shining down on you
You can feel my kiss with every drop of rain
My breath caresses you

Clouds are bound to come your way
The earth will sometimes SHAKE
But your heart will stay the same
And guide you on your way
Because ...

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE
Te llevas mis Alas con tigo
cuando de mis manos .. te vaz

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Love Approves
LOVE APPROVES
© HERE II HERE

What can I say, I like strong arms around my waist
and powerful hands that gently caress my face
What could I do but choose to be true
To this that I feel whenever I'm around you

(Chorus)
And I know, I know, I know
That love approves
Cause it's only love, only love
That's shining through
And I know, I know, I know
That it's alright
Cause it's only love it's only
That's in my baby's eyes

What would I give to taste the sweetness of your lips
through the stubble on your face when you forget to shave
What would life be without honoring what's always free this love is so real between another man and me

(Chorus)

I like to think about the strength there has to to just
Hold each other's hand and walk on through society cause a
Love's here on this earth and it's not afraid of getting burned cause we
Know in our hearts we've always chosen love first
X2

I know I know that God approves cause it's only God that's shining through.

RAP by J Brave of the Luminaries

Who's gotta problem with the ego
power to the people
driving in my Tesla when i'm hanging out with Neko
gotta keep it regal, when i'm touring like a beatle
taking trips overseas maybe down in Puerto Rico
love over evil, and i'm flying like a seagull
Chill for a minute like i'm sipping cappuccino
ugh, ima spend a couple c-notes it' aint all
about the money, but i'm runnin it like Nino
Brown, down, root to the crown
move to the rhythm, get in tune with the sound
girl, don't you know that you are divine
focus on the heart, get up out of ya mind
standing all stiff, gotta move your behind
don't listen to the chatter let ya inner light shine
yeah i gotta problem with my ego
My minds going CRAZY I'm singing it like Cee-lo!!
Track Name: Alas
Alas (the Spanish version of "WINGS")
© Here II Here

Ya no necesito preocuparme mas
Yo se que estarás bien
Como cuando un nino juega en el mar
Las olas en sus pies

Un paraíso te espera ay mucho que aprender
Tu corazón te guiara yo se que estarás bien porque

Coro

Cada vez que tu te vas mis alas te llevas
No importa donde tu estés, siempre te cubrira
Mis alas siempre te acompanyaran

Si me quieres ver solo mira el sol
Brillando en tu ser
Yo te besare con gotas de amor
Rosando tu piel

Hay montañas que cruzar, la tierra temblara
Mas no tienes que pensar, ni debes dudar porque

Coro

Te llevas mis alas contigo cuando de mis manos te vas
Te llevas mis alas contigo cuando de mis manos te vas

Track Name: I Don't Know Shit!
I Don’t Know $#!T
©2005, Here II Here

Everybody’s walking ‘round like they shh don’t stink
Quietly wishing they’re better, smarter, richer, stronger, prettier than you
Claiming life and land and all the thoughts they think
Yes you’re the only one that’s right in a whole Universe of fools
But I’m a tell the Truth…

Ch.

I don’t know shit,
You don’t know shit,
They don’t know shit
We don’t know shit
He don’t know shit
She don’t know shit
Now ain’t that some…

Vs 2

I’m not talking ‘bout like knowing how to bake a cake
Or how to drive or read or write or even brain surgery ooh wee
But the simplest of questions humanity’s been asking like since
Before, before, before, before we invented time
Where did we come from? Why are we here? Who am I? Who am I?

Ch.
