Are you riding a train to Heaven or Hell? Are you in search of somewhere Or something that rings true? Well it could be closer than you think It could be closer than you think It could be closer than you think It could be closer than you think it is Give me your sunshine again You've left me in a mess And when I fall, I really fall And that's when you go to my head my head It could be sunshine It could be sunshine It could be sunshine It could be sunshine Give me songs and freedom Give me love in every sense Raise me up so high with you All the cavemen fade away away It could be sunshine It could be sunshine It could be sunshine It could be sunshine Walking on the sidewalk of life Will only make you grey and sad Lift me up so high so high My lifes always in your hands your hands It could be sunshine It could be sunshine It could be sunshine It could be sunshine My love for you won't last for one day My love for you will last for two My love for you won't last for one day My love for you will last for two My love for you won't last for one day My love for you will last for two &Kundalini Express (David J) --------- ------- This is the announcement For the transcendental run The train now standing Leaves for higher planes Due to a derailment There will be no other train So why not hop on this one? Hear the porter's glad refrain Each carriage is connected As is every single train The rails all form a track Which is a link within a chain The chain's connected to another chain now You will need no ticket If you wish to ride on this train All aboard the express kundalini All aboard the express kundalini All aboard the express kundalini The song is in your heart Your heart is in the song The song is of the earth The song is of the sky You are disintegrating Into everything around Reintegrating The worm we dug from higher ground You have let go of ego Ego is no longer you Closer to nirbana Since the porters whistle blew All aboard the express kundalini All aboard the express kundalini All aboard the express kundalini &All in my Mind (Daniel Ash) --- -- -- ---- Walk around so cold So cold and lonely Or lay in bed wondering what To do with time You've got no sense of fun Until you know you've won again And yet you feel so much You feel so much inside You want to rip all the Jewels off all the idiots' backs so badly You scream give me what I've always Missed, give me a good time But if you look into your mirror You'll see that nobody Has ever ripped you off It's all in your mind Her beauty can only ever be skin deep But if I'm honest that's all I ever Really need So throw us some flowers and we'll Give you some songs and sunshine And if you give me an hour I'll show you how you feel Ohhh baby, ohh I'm much too lazy Ohhh it's all in my mind So don't be unkind It's all in my mind It's all in my mind Sometimes you really don't Really don't really don't know What I mean Sometimes you really don't Really don't really don't Know what I need I say I've got no sense of Fun until I know I've won again And how do you think yes how Do you think that feels So just give me an hour I'll show you how you feel Ohhh baby Ohhh I'm much too lazy Ohhh baby Ohh It's all in my mind So don't be unkind It's al in my mind (repeat until fade) &Life in Laralay (David J) ---- -- ------- Dupes of a Disney Frozen stiff Lost in the Hollywood hills Where dreams as real as Fredericks Are sustained on air by pills Where all the red that's in the world Bleeds into all the blue Where film stars leave their footprints And failed stars join the queue Everywhere's a backdrop To a scripted play A film show of a preview Of life in laralay Life in laralay Life in laralay Life in laralay In laralay the custom is For cash to call the tune Usually a cabaret song Sung to a neon moon Down below the fairy lights Twink on in tinsel town Where everyone's in showbiz And snowmen kick the downs The palm tree shaded billboards Advertise the style That makes this fair land what it is A money making smile That dazzles as it razzles The diamonds from your soul Leaving you with nothing Life in laralay Life in laralay Life in laralay Life in laralay &Ball of Confusion (Whitfield/Strong) ---- -- --------- (special mix) &Holiday on the Moon (David J) ------- -- --- ---- You can't get a suntan on the Moon But I wouldn't mind a holiday there They say, you can't get a suntan on the Moon But I wouldn't mind a holiday there All expenses paid courtesy of NASA Thank you Mister President for my holiday, sir I couldn't really say that I wish you were here But thank you all the same sir For my holiday Holiday Little lunar holiday Having a wonderful time Having a wonderful time Having a wonderful time Having a wonderful time &Yin and Yang the Flower Pot Man (David J/Daniel Ash) --- --- ---- --- ------ --- --- Under wheel of the running train Like a dog in the pouring rain Diamond days cut and dry But beauty in the hurricane's eye Under fire, under thumb No golden hand no golden sun Diamond days cut and dry But beauty in the hurricane's eye Beauty beauty beauty beautiful Beauty beauty beauty beautiful Alcohol is your yoga baby Gonna call out my name Then I'm gonna rain All over you All over you Diamond days cut and dry But beauty in the hurricane's eye Beauty beauty beauty beautiful Beauty beauty beauty beautiful Beauty beauty beauty beautiful Beauty beauty beauty beautiful &Love Me (Daniel Ash) ---- -- Walking through the alleys Working through your vanitys Here comes another lesson The lesson is life LOVE ME Walking through your heavens Walking with your devils Here comes another lesson The lesson you'll live The lesson is life LOVE ME I'm only interested in paradise I'm only interested in paradise I'm only working working working Working working working Working so hard I'm only interested in pure white light I'm only interested don't want to fight I'm only working working Working working working Working working so hard LOVE ME (repeat till fade) &All In My Mind (Acoustic) (Daniel Ash) --- -- -- ---- ---------- Walk around so cold so cold and lonely Or lay in bed wondering what to do with time You've got no sense of fun Until you know you've won again And yet you feel so much You feel so much inside OHHHH Your beauty can only ever be skin deep But if I'm honest that's all I ever really need So throw us some flowers We'll give you some songs and sunshine And if you give me an hour I'll show you how you feel Ohhh baby Ohhh I'm much too lazy

sleep Saw through you all And I was dreaming still on my feet Saw through you all And I saw what you could be And you just don't feel free And I saw what you could be But you just won't be real to me So let's blame this excess On an American dream So let's blame the success Of an American dream Are you confused by the chaos In everyone's wandering eyes Do you dream of running naked In warm rain Are you confused by the chaos It's no, it's no surprise We all stand next to Jesus Close to Satan we're both the same These birds can't fly away away These birds can't fly away So let's blame this excess On an American dream So let's blame the success Of an American dream Of an American dream Of an American dream Of an American dream Feeling so high and low It's the American dream It's the American dream It's the American dream It's the American dream AMERICA (repeat to fade) Produced by John A.
