Lyrics

Searching

Written By: Didi Levy

Oh, he spend his days wandering
By the banks of the river
Searching for stones
He wore many pockets
For the treasures he found
He brought them all home

His papa said, his papa said (Why, why) “Why do you do these things?”
His papa said, his papa said (We, we) “We have to throw the rocks out everyday”
His papa said, his papa said (Why, why) “Why are you wasting so much time?”
His papa said, his papa said “Why can’t you just go out and play?”

Oh, when he woke with the sunrise
He would walk to the river
Searching for stones
When, he returned with the sunset
Totally ecstatic
He brought them all home

His papa said, his papa said (Bring, bring) “Bring me workers from town”
His papa said, his papa said (Now, now) “Now Fetch me all the stones that you can”
His papa said, his papa said (Now, now) “See, now you have all the rocks that you need”
His papa said, his papa said “Why can’t you just go out and play?”

Oh, he spoke to his father
See what you have done now
You have taken the pleasure away
See, the joy is in searching not in the finding
And you have destroyed that
Now I cannot go out and play
Now I cannot go out and play
Now I cannot go out and play

Internal Revolution

Written By: Didi Levy

It’s time to talk about the situation
People living in desperation
Millions are dying of starvation
The forests, the resources preservation
Weapons that cause devastation
The world is controlled by the corporations
Everyone is under observation
Constantly exposed to manipulation
All these things that can lead to frustration
But we all still find inspiration
So heal the world with positive vibration
Everyone should do it without reservation
The human race is going thru a transformation
Until we all make the realization
That we are all part of the same vibration

Internal Revolution, bring it on
Internal Revolution, everyone
Internal Revolution, c’mon
Internal Revolution, yea, man

Let’s talk about life a celebration
The I that is you in meditation
The silence you hear in deep concentration
The body and soul liberation
Searching for truth dedication
Trusting yourself no hesitation

The media is full of misinformation
Trying to make us live in isolation
Don’t you know it’s all about exploitation
Yet we all seem to avoid the confrontation
It’s the challenge of every generation
So heal the world now with positive vibration
Everyone should do it without reservation
The human race is going thru a transformation
Until we all make the realization
That we are all part of the same vibration

Internal Revolution, bring it on
Internal Revolution, everyone
Internal Revolution, c’mon
Internal Revolution, yea, man

Get in Touch

Written By: Didi Levy

Have you ever noticed
That you ain't got time and when you do have time
You don't know what to do
With the time that you got

Have you ever noticed
That the more you got
The more you worry about it
And the less time you got
For the things that you like

Don't let fate be decided for you
Take the time, to get it right, got it right

Get in touch with yourself
Get in touch with yourself
Get in touch with yourself
Get in touch with yourself

Have you ever noticed
The more you think
The less you notice
And the more things
Just pass you by

And have you ever noticed
That the more talk
The less you say
And the less you know
What you're talking about

Reality is the truth
Not inventions of the mind
So get in touch with yourself
Follow your instincts
Get out of the closet
Dude, open your eyes
Feel a sense of freedom in the here and now
And let yourself go
And let yourself go
And let yourself go
And let yourself go

Get in touch with yourself
Get in touch with yourself
Get in touch with yourself
Get in touch with yourself

Look Inside

Written By: Didi Levy

You can travel down all the highways
You can be all that you can be
You can climb up the highest mountains
And you can see all that you can see

You can know all there is to know
You can live your life in simplicity
You can seek all that you can seek
You can dream, you can dream

Just to get that satisfaction
That sense of eternity
Where nothing really matters
And you can be happy and free
So stop what you're doing and look inside

You can choose the way of confusion
You can choose to have clarity
You can follow your faith and reason
You can believe whatever you want to believe

You can believe that you've earned respect
You can believe that your life has been successful
You can claim that you're truly happy
But it's all temporary, it's all temporary
It's all temporary

Just to get that satisfaction
That sense of eternity
Where nothing really matters
And you can be happy and free
So stop what you're doing and look inside

Home is a place where you can say ahh
Rest your head in peace and get away from it all
Well, that place is inside you, that place is inside you
That place is inside you

Stop what you're doing and look inside
Stop what you're doing and look inside
Stop what you're doing and look inside
Stop what you're doing and look inside
Stop, look inside
Stop, look inside
Stop, look inside
Stop, look inside

Today

Written By: Didi Levy

So what did you do today?
Were you happy? Were you free?
Did you see the sun today?
Or did you hide in the city?
Did you grow? Did you learn?
Did you breathe? Were you Alive?
Did you make someone happy, just because?
Did you make someone smile?

Did you do the things you love?
Did you think? Did you feel?
Did you give and receive?
Did you wheel and deal?
Did you sigh? Were you unhappy?
Do you even know why?
Did you sense a bit of frustration?
Did you think about life?

Today is today, don’t waste another day
Today is today, so whatcha gonna do today?

Did you do what you wanted to do?
Did you do what you had to do?
Did you listen to someone else?
Did you listen to you?
Were you caught in an endless routine?
Did you dance? Sing? Write? Paint? Or play?
Are you satisfied with what you did today?
Or did you waste another day?

Today is today, don’t waste another day
Today is today, so whatcha gonna do today?

So what did you do today?
So what did you do today?
So what did you do today?
So what did you do today?

Just Love

Written By: Didi Levy

No illusion, no misdirection
No ambition and no possessions
No religion, no ideals
No hatred and no obsession

No jealousy, no anger,
No greed and no violence
No identity, no attachments,
No security and no boundaries

No roles, no obligations,
No confusion, no addictions,
No rules and no conditions,
No self, no ego
Just Love...

Yes We Can

Written By: Didi Levy

Some food for thought, Same Vibration in the house, coming at you
There’s plenty of food in the world, for people to feed
But millions are starving because of corporate greed
We got a war on terror, a war on poverty
A war on drugs, war for security
A war on AIDS, wars for peace
A war to prevent wars, what the f#&k are we fighting for
It seems the more we fight, the more it ain’t right,
So tell me, what the f#&k are we fighting for
And the f#&k are these guys, scandal and lies
Rippin’ us off with suits and ties
Politicians and bankers, it’s no surprise
We know the game, when we open our eyes
And some of you are saying, I’m just a man in the street
Working like a dog, trying to make ends meet
Let me tell you, the world don’t jive with that kind of negativity
We need to reflect within ourselves and find our spirituality
Cause in the name of freedom, our voices will stay strong
And we ain’t goin’ down, and this is our song

Can you feel it….. Yes we can
Can you feel it in the air …… Yes we can
Can tou feel it out there ……..Yes we can
Raise your hands in the air, like you just don’t care
Can you feel it….. Yes we can
Can you feel it out there …… Yes we can
Can tou feel it everywhere ……..Yes we can
Raise your hands in the air, like you just don’t care

The truth is hard to see when you focus outside
Impressions and your senses are clouding your mind
Reacting to sensations that aren’t really there
Cravings and aversions, no peace of mind
It’s all so temporary, it comes and it goes
Take a ride as the energy flows
To heal the sufferings of humanity
We need to live in the now and understand reality
Who we are and what we’re here to do
And what is life and what is really true
The past has already passed, the future hasn’t yet
Only in the present can you do something about that
What you do now is seed you sow
Watch it grow
Life is a gift, an opportunity
An experience full of possibility
No more illusion, no more confusion
Awareness is the solution, internal revolution

Equation

Written By: Didi Levy

What you intend, is what will manifest
When you lie, you’re only cheating yourself
The power of thoughts, is rarely understood
Using our minds we can create harmony in this world, like we should
The music, the rhythm, the celebration
And every one of us is part of the equation

When you put yourself first, you’re only building a cage
When you’re untrue to your soul, you’re like an actor on a stage
Ciaos consumes you and things fall apart
Something is missing deep in your heart
You gotta wake up now, before it’s too late
Tear down the wall and open the gate
Let freedom be your guiding light
Take it easy and enjoy the flight
The music, the rhythm, the celebration
And every one of us is part of the equation

You walk down the street, distracted, externalized
That’s a missed opportunity, a moment you haven’t realized
You gotta wake up now, before it’s too late
Tear down the wall and open the gate
Let freedom be your guiding light
Take it easy and enjoy the flight
The music, the rhythm, the celebration
And every one of us is part of the equation

Connected

Written By: Didi Levy

Everything is connected, there’s no me
It’s all connected, every bird and bee
Everything is connected, every flower and tree
Every ocean and river, every star in the galaxy

Division is the state of the world today,
The lines are drawn in many ways
Indoctrination is the name of the game
With out the separation we are all the same
Societies and cultures are a set of rules,
Manipulated by unbalanced fools
Instead of others telling you what’s wrong and right
People of the world unite

Everything is connected, there’s no me

Fighting for peace is a trick of the mind,
Look around you and you will find,
That to live in harmony with the whole,
Is human nature, it’s not corrupted souls,
We all need to take responsibility,
Corrected injustice base don morality
Together, we got the power and light
So people of the world unite
