Lyrics

Time

Written By: Eiko Hosaka Tiernan and Laurier Tiernan

Time

Few of us will dare to go the distance
Most of us would rather stand in line
Most of us would rather pay with boredom
Rather than risk minutes of lost time

But I am here to tell you that time is never lost
It is always counted up
Through summer sweat and winter frost
Chose your destination. Marry it within your heart.
Follow it around the world
'Til death will do you part

Men have fought too many wars
For temporary gain
Knowing that their souls would come to
Feel empty again
I have come upon you now to highjack history
If you want to save the world
Pick up your dreams and follow me 'cause

[CHORUS]

Seize the Day

Written By: Eiko Hosaka Tiernan and Laurier Tiernan

Seize the Day

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
When you are too uncomfortable, you will face your fears.
Then you may pause and wonder
What took you so much time.
But questioning is pointless
When everybody knows your crime.

The sun is feeding me powerful rays
And today is the day when I change my ways.
Delaying and waiting just does not pay,
So now I am deciding to seize the day.
Yes, now I am deciding to seize the day.

I am so grateful, that I have the chance
To look over my lessons and change my circumstance.
The greatest gift you can receive
Is the chance to improve yourself.
Graduation from your past
Is the greatest source of wealth.

[CHORUS]

Thank you for blessing me so
By giving me chances to grow.
I will do my best to past each test
Until I find my way home.

[CHORUS] x 2

A Ray of Hope

Written By: Eiko Hosaka Tiernan and Laurier Tiernan

A Ray of Hope

I cannot imagine the hand you had been dealt
& I cannot imagine how playing that hand felt
But I know what people see in you
And that is why I sing this tune

The World is a big place and you have a kind face.
You will always have a place to go.
No matter the disgrace, just put on your game face
And then you will see a ray of hope.

Look over your shoulder and see the dots connect.
Now let them relieve you of your past regrets.
Following the signals that you see in the sky.
Trusting in the knowledge that you will be fine.

[CHORUS]

You can be reborn for free.
Change your mind as often as you need to.
You control your destiny.
If you cannot sing your song just change the key.

The World is a big place and you have a kind face.
You will always have a place to go.
No matter the disgrace, just put on your game face
And then you will see a ray...

The World is a big place and you have a kind face.
You will always have a place to go.
No matter the disgrace, just put on your game face
And then you will see a ray of hope.

Never Die

Written By: Eiko Hosaka Tiernan and Laurier Tiernan

Never Die

Feel the energy inside you
Feel it ebb and rise
Do you think something that strong
Could ever subside

We are all parts of the same whole
We all share one life
Different shapes are only a
Temporary guise

You can spread your wings and fly
Like all the birds up high
Nothing will ever stop you and you will never die

Can you see that you are here to
Celebrate the light
Feel the wonders growing in you
In the cosmic night

As you take another's hand

You both will start to glow and the universe
Will teach you
What you need to know

[CHORUS]

You were born to look beyond
The lies people are sold
Speed is the best currency and
Life rewards the bold

[CHORUS] x2

Merry Christmas (to Our Loved Ones)

Written By: Eiko Hosaka Tiernan and Laurier Tiernan

Merry Christmas (To Our Loved Ones) - Lyrics

[INTRO]

Are your decorations up? Are your sweaters all unpacked?
Have you done all of your baking? Are all your presents wrapped?

Merry Christmas to our loved ones.
Keep warm in your northern towns.
Peace and happiness to all wherever you are now.

Please make sure that you drive sober
And make it to the new year.
Please do not rush around shopping.
You are all we really need.

[CHORUS]

Let us make a resolution
To destroy old limits.
Get rid of negative thoughts.
What you resist persists.

[CHORUS] x 2
