Lyrics

Amen

Written By: Sasha Rose

As subtle as a whisper your essence slips within,
the threads of life are woven so the ancients can begin,
To build their inner circle as they call unto the flame,
The names of those who came before the place from where they came,
The sword will be reclaimed by those who carve anew a place,
To build a deep foundation to renew the human race.
And from deep within the fire the visions will arise,
And those who are the carriers will no no comprimise,
As they etch a new foundation built of wonder and of grace,
Knowing that within us all, magic has its' place.

a call unto the wilder ways will sound throughout the lands,
those who choose to listen will be taken in the hands,
of the unseen ones who's voices are as subtle of the wind
Who wrap their wings around us so we truly can begin,
The journey through the wheel of time, the present to the past,
The belief that what's revealed within is truly built to last

Perfection

Written By: Sasha Butterfly

PERFECTION

I'm drawing these pictures of you in the sand,
These very same pictures I wipe away with my hand.
It's a reflection of the universe, we're here and then we're gone,
Ever moving forward we are ever moving on

So rise to your perfection, sweet brother of my soul.
All creation waiting, for you to realize you are whole,
Rise to your perfection, sweet brother of my heart,
All the angels praying, that you can play your part.

And the words don't come easy, sometimes the words don't come at all,
Every castle built, while someday it will fall,
Time can be a healer, but only you can fill the space,
And surrender is the key, to live your life in grace.

So rise to your perfection, sweet brother of my soul.
All creation waiting, for you to realize you are whole,
Rise to your perfection, sweet brother of my heart,
All the angels praying, that you can play your part.

The laws of man are mighty, but mama nature rules them all,
And compared to her queendom, human kind is small.
She's been whispering her secrets, for those who choose to hear,
the canvas is just waiting for us to wipe it clear.
Can we wipe it clear?

So rise to your perfection, sweet brother of my soul.
All creation waiting, for you to realize you are whole,
Rise to your perfection, sweet brother of my heart,
All the angels praying, that you can play your part.

And I'm still drawing these pictures of you in the sand,
These very same pictures I offer up to the land,
It's a reflection of the universe we're here and then we're gone,
Ever moving forward we are ever moving on,
Still drawing these pictures of you in the sand,
Trusting we are always, held within god's hands.

Time To speak

Written By: Sasha Rose

TIME TO SPEAK

Because it's Time to Speak for one,
It's time to speak for all,
It's time to rally the people,
Who hear the trumpets call

Because we live amongst a pool of what our choices have engraved,
It's only us that keeps us down when our mind becomes enslaved,
By the thought that does not serve a heart that's destined to be true,
I keep my thoughts on positivity, no matter what I do,

Because it's Time to Speak for one,
It's time to speak for all,
It's time to rally the people,
Who hear the trumpets call

So raise your voice to the heavens,
Raise your voice to the sky,
Raise your voice for the people,
Who still have the heart to try.

We're picking up the pieces from this land of broken dreams,
Witness to the fabric torn apart at the seams,
But through the concrete grows a flower, a seed of hope has found it's place,
Trusting that creation governs everything in grace.

Because it's Time to Speak for one,
It's time to speak for all,
It's time to rally the people,
Who hear the trumpets call

So raise your voice to the heavens,
Raise your voice to the sky,
Raise your voice for the people,
Who still have the heart to try.

Raise your voice to the heavens,
Raise your voice to the sky,
Raise your voice for the people,
Who still have the heart to try.

Because the mind has it's reasons for holding on so strong,
To the actions and thoughts that no longer belong,
But in the escence of this freedom,
It burns to the ground, leaving only the ashes and the purest of sound

Because it's Time to Speak for one,
It's time to speak for all,
It's time to rally the people,
Who hear the trumpets call

So raise your voice to the heavens,
Raise your voice to the sky,
Raise your voice for the people,
Who still have the heart to try.

Way to find the way

WAY TO FIND THE WAY
?The storm clouds are lifting, from the footsteps of yesterdays dreams,?And I know there’s got to be a reason that everything os not as it seems.?Truth is the answer and the question, and it cuts like a knife,?But it’s layin’ the foundation for the rest, for the rest of my life,
Are we gonna find the way to find the way to find the song?Oh we can only search so long to find the way to find the way to find the song,?And you can only search so long to find,?The way to find the way to find your song.
And I know there is an answer to the question, of what is meant to be,?and I know that only time could reveal a destiny.?I know that there’s got to be an answer to all of my questions, ?and what is meant to be and I know that only time could reveal sweet destiny,
DESTINY?Are we gonna find the way to find the way to find the song,?We can only search so long to find, the way to find the way to find the song.?You can only search so long to find, the way to find the way to find your song.
You’ve carried my mountain across the ocean,?Across to the other shore, and i know that only time could reveal just what we’ve come here for.?And I know that you’ve carried my mountain, Hanuman ?Across to the other shore, and I know that only love could ever settle, settle the score.?Only love, Only love could ever settle the score, ‘cause love is what we come here for.?Love, holy love now, hold it up now, fill your cup now with holy love now.
The storm clouds are lifting from the footsteps, of yesterdays’ dreams,?And I know there’s always a reason that everything is not as it seems,?Love is the answer, it’s not the question, of what is meant to be,?And I know that only time could reveal sweet destiny.?And I’ve known that truth is the answer, and the question,?And it cuts like a knife,?But it’s layin’ the foundation for the rest, the rest of our lives.
And I pray we find the way to find, the way to find the way to find the song,?Can only search so long to find, the way to find the way to find the song,?You can only search so long to find, the way to find the way to find your song.?You can only search so long to find, the way to find the way to find your song.

Ashes

Written By: Sasha Rose

Cause there's nothing like the present when your dealing with the past,
Nothing is for certain and only soul will last
When you sail through the illusion and the ways again made clear,
The present is your lover always looking in the mirror

Cause I've been ever sailing always looking for my way
Everything forgiven when your soul shows what to say
The clarity a castle that is etched in solid stone
The path leads to a doorway at the end of where I roam

So burn till I'm the ashes and build me up again
The futures ever changing and the present never ends

The crossroads I have taken one foot before the next
A vision of a serpent unlocked my treasure chest
And you were there before me a king that holds the key
A father in my destiny I see what's meant to be

A promise never broken the truth is all there is
The wings of birds are taken the day of our last kiss
And now you stand without me the sun is at your back
I give to you my friendship and pray you never lack

So burn me in the ashes and build me up again
The futures ever changing and the present never ends

We all become the teachers one chapter at a time
My pen becomes a constant tool to build it up in rhyme
The current flowing swiftly Taking every bit of me
Parts of me are drowning they are carried by the sea

And now I see me standing in the resonance of sound
The world she holds her breath as I spread my love around
A doorway to the castle held open by the hands
Of the guardians of treasures the protecters of the lands

So burn me in the ashes and build me up again
The futures ever changing and the present never ends

I see you dancing whirlwinds splitting all things open wide
Our honesty a beacon till I hold you by my side
the dancefloor pulses rhythms through our DNA in time
The MC chanting lyrics over rhythm as we rhyme

On tour April 2006

Sweet Dove

Written By: Sasha Rose

SWEET DOVE

Sweet dove, I call you in on the wings of love,
Sweet angel child you were born of the wild,

Ascension the retention, of a rhyme within a rhyme,
Becoming a reflection of a time within a time,
Re-living the release of our ancestors pain,
Receiving the transmission that we have come again
To establish the communion, of true community,
Re-pattern the design of this reality

Sweet dove, comin' in on the wings of love,
Sweet angel child you were born of the wild,

So gather all ye seekers and gather all you found,
Experience the depth of our mothers holy sound.
For zion is the temple the temple built within,
inside the sacred guardian true healing will begin,
Inside the sacred garden true healing can begin

Sweet dove, comin' in on the wings of love,
Sweet angel child you were born of the wild,
Wrap you up in the wings of the wild

So gather all ye minstrels holy ones and fools,
Use the inner teachings as mamas holy tools,
to be cultivating soil of body mind and heart,
Taking in this poison transmuting our small part,
and while the battle field is raging our mother wears the scars,
Trusting that her healing is written in the stars,
Trusting that our healing is written in the stars

Sweet dove, comin' in on the wings of love,
Sweet angel child you were born of the wild,
