Caught Inside -Words and Music by John Zay Guess I wanted to fall right down Eyes that see And I wanted to know somehow Where I’d be If you know, could you say? Would you show me which way to go? I don’t know I’m losing control Faded Torn and Frayed so Jaded Sets and lulls I am caught inside Lost my window Nowhere I can hide I am caught inside Flying solo Is there any light? I’ve lost my way back home Even though you are gone right now I can’t leave Even though that I won somehow I still grieve In my heart, in my dreams From the things that you said to me No reprieve Been lost at sea Naked Ripped and torn so Faded Down below I am caught inside Lost my window Nowhere I can hide I am caught inside Flying solo Is there any light? I’ve lost my way back home

Children -Music and Lyrics by John Zay Children You need to see the world You need to feel the world Taste the world Know it understand We left the ocean To walk on through these lands Now it’s time to grow again There’s so much more at hand -- Ask yourself Is it enough to know yourself? To feel yourself Make sense of yourself Beyond the good and the bad Tell yourself You’re gonna reach yourself You’re gonna take the chance To be yourself And risk all you have The smaller your world becomes The bigger you will be The more you work from inside The better you will see Chorus: Listen to your heart today And let go of your mind Now is what the moment says So let go of your mind ----- Children C’mon and greet the world Embrace the ways That people live In all her different lands Mostly what you’ll see Is people need love like you and me Mostly what you’ll find Is here at home we’ve been so blind Chorus: Listen to your heart today And let go of your mind Now is what the moment says So let go of your mind Listen to your heart today And let go of your mind

Father’s Daughter -Music and Lyrics 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

Aloha Jeff Spicoli Music and Lyrics by John Zay I need to levitate and leave this life behind No need to hesitate my intentions are in line Back and forth a record groove skips within my head Will I ever make the move to find the perfect swell? So everyone will you join me hand in hand I for one, I don’t need to understand Aloha Jeff Spiccoli We’re cruising in your van Surfing down in Mexico Sleeping on the sand Wash away all your memories Surrender all your pain Forget everything you learned at school Those teachers were so lame So everyone will you join me hand in hand I for one, I don’t need to understand Aloha Jeff Spiccoli We’re cruising in your van Surfing down in Mexico Sleeping on the sand No matter how far away I go I feel the earthquake in my heart No matter how far away I go I feel the earthquake in my heart Aloha Jeff Spiccoli We’re cruising in your van Surfing down in Mexico Sleeping on the sand

Valentine’s Day -Music and Lyrics by John Zay Test Water, Test Water… I think about all the reasons that you are perfect for me I think about all the reasons I need you to feel me I want you to know I’ve waited for you I’ve waited for you; I’m done being through with our love My heart can’t take this anymore In the daytime At the nighttime With the evening sun At the break of dawn You’re in my mind In my mind I can feel you all the time Cause its the way your eyes Speak from inside Telling me you are mine In the daytime At the nighttime With the evening sun At the break of dawn You’re in my mind Give me some time To show you I'm here to stay --- I want to share with you I want to care about you Give me what I need - my love Mmm, my love, Mmm, my, my Ohh don’t go too far away There’s no reason to stray From your home it’s in your heart Everything else is just a false start In the daytime At the nighttime With the evening sun At the break of dawn You’re in my mind In my mind I can feel you all the time Cause its the way your eyes Speak from inside Telling me you are mine In the daytime At the nighttime With the evening sun At the break of dawn You’re in my mind Give me some time To show you I'm here to stay Baby Please don’t betray our love I’ve laid all my feelings out on the line I w ant nothing but the truth you hold inside Don’t throw it away Don’t throw it away – I love you It’s Valentine’s Day It’s Valentine’s Day

Be The One -words and Music by John Zay Be the one to come to me Show me that you can Take a chance and be the one take me by the hand Over within my head it’s what you said and now you're gone I’m waiting for your call you have my back up against the wall Reaching I’ve bled my heart got read my chart and I’ve prayed for change I’m naked still in pain so caught up inside your game Be the one to come to me Show me that you can Take a chance and be the one take me by the hand Hell Bent to make a mess you'd rather run than confess defending yourself to me floating in you're own reality Burning within my mind by your design and I play the part it’s raining/through my eyes hand the night to the day hand the night away to the light of day who was to know that you'd lie inside I want you to decide your fate I've decided mine Be the one to come to me Show me that you can Take a chance and be the one take me by the hand

Separation of Church and State -words and Music by John Zay You’re quoting the bible on me But all the while Your killing for greed A moral and ethical stance Now you’ve got them In a trance You own the gas but your pumping out fear Riding high with Jesus near Your truth is a distortion of lies A disguise you’re hearing our cries Chorus: Rally the masses into joining with your team Falling in line behind the great American scheme -- Prey upon the suckers in need Its bribery a brainwashed machine Watch this war blow up in your face It’s history You can’t erase Chorus: Rally the masses into joining with your team Falling in line behind the great American scheme bridge 1: With your lies A moral disguise Open Your Eyes -- Now we won’t stand aside anymore You have pinned us To the floor Separation of church and state Don’t shove beliefs In my face Chorus: Rally the masses into joining with your team Falling in line behind the great American scheme bridge 2: With your lies A moral disguise Can you hear our cries? A moral disguise Open Your Eyes

Epic Day -Lyrics by John Zay -Music by Zay & Tactical Taken all the way into your life today Leading paths astray to where we fall in place I know you can’t be found But I don’t to leave you now You say, you say the word And I’ll go under your spell Looking for the epic day A tidal wave takes you and me away We can fall in love all over again Waiting for a sign that keeps me with you today Living for adventure seems like the only way I wasn’t built for hanging around It’s time for me to leave this town Just say, just say the word And we’ll disappear right now Looking for the epic day A tidal wave takes you and me away We can fall in love all over again I’m trying so hard to embrace the storm It’s through the eye that we are born If we want to build a life of trust Surrender is a must Looking for the epic day A tidal wave takes you and me away We can fall in love all over again Looking for the epic day A tidal wave takes you and me away We can fall in love all over again

Help Me -Lyrics by John Zay -Music by John Zay & Taylor Bergren-Chrisman I’m blown away by all the love that’s grown in me I am open to my sacred needs I can see, I can see so many dreams right in front of me I can even sense the path I’m going to blaze So give it to me, give it to me and show me the words I’ supposed to say I’m going, I’m going, I’m going, I’m going, I’m going away On my own Throwing caution to the wind Like a surrealist liberates, I can relate, I liberate I can relate to seeing through reality I visualize, I take my time Got nothing to prove got nothing to hide There’s nothing to wait for I am traveling far and wide To the mountains and streams Through the snow and the trees In the sun and the waves Something new everyday Yes I’m going, yes I’m going, yes I’m going, yes I’m going, Yes I’m going away On my own Throwing caution to the wind There’s no way I’m wrong now I can’t believe what’s happening Help me find my way to the stars Bring me the gift of an open heart -Rap- Help me find my way to the stars Bring me the gift of an open heart
