about

I remember believing in MAGIC.

I recall the wind in itself being alive and with a voice… It smelled awake, purposeful and speaking in a resounding tongue I perfectly understood. All was vast,
open, dazzling and wondrous. I believe this to be the truth of the world. And now? It is not the MAGIC that has altered but discernment… The way we breathe the world in, the way our eyes cut to the obvious flash, instead of opening to see the authentic reality.

It is not that we have to make MAGIC, create it as a sorcerer or a miracle maker… It is alive and very real. It is that we must BELIEVE IN MAGIC. It is not the truth that changes, it is that we move ourselves out of the grasp of the MAGIC… It is the awakening to the substance unseen which will allow us to once again remember. And to remember, we realize firstly it is not the truth that changes, but that we have moved ourselves out of the grasp of the MAGIC…

And now hope is just alive as the MAGIC itself. Infinitesimal faith is as powerful as a mountain, like the life within a seed, every fiber of our bodies beat with the cells of a thousand generations to come, and within is a steady, untangled line from the very beginning.

This is our power to claim, this is our MAGIC.

No matter our path, the MAGIC is inside us all. And though it may be forgotten, it can be remembered once again… It is only up to us to do one single thing, and do it purely…

BELIEVE.

Track Name: We Must Believe In Magic
We Must Believe in Magic

Mad is the captain of Alpha Centauri
We must be out of our minds
Still we are shipmates bound for tomorrow
And everyone here's flying blind

Oh, we must believe in magic
We must believe in the guiding hand
If you believe in magic
You'll have the universe at your command

Mad is the crew bound for Alpha Centauri
Dreamers and poets and clowns
Bold is the ship bound for Alpha Centauri
Nothing can turn it around

Oh, we must believe in magic
We must believe in the guiding hand
If you believe in magic
You'll have the universe at your command

Oh, we must believe in magic
We must believe in the guiding hand
If you believe in magic
You'll have the universe at your command

Oh, we must believe in magic
We must believe in the guiding hand
If you believe in magic
You'll have the universe at your command

Yes if you believe in magic
You'll have the universe at your command
Track Name: Brave Young Man
Brave Young Man

Someday I'll be a brave young man
Someday I will hold the world in my two strong hands
Someday I will understand
And be a brave young man

Someday I will fall in love
Maybe even rise above
Perhaps see the master plan
And be a brave young man

Hold me now
I can you feel a cold blowing wind
Hold me now
You may never see this old man again

Someday I may make you smile
Maybe we can dance awhile
You can finally be a child
I'll be a brave young man

We hold it true and count off time
But hide this truth inside
But hopefully I will finally find
Enough days left in my life
To be a brave young man

Hold me now
Oh, I can you feel cold blowing wind
Hold me now
You may never see this old man again

I know life will pass me by
And I will watch the world
From the heavens high
But maybe first I'll give a try
And be a brave young man
Yes maybe first I'll give a try
And be a brave young man
Track Name: Dragon Song
Dragon Song

I was the freak in the sideshow
I was the clown in the rodeo
I was the ghost that you passed on the street you swore must have been James Dean

And I sit on the riverbank
And tell those fish straight forward and frank
I say, "Hey fish!-'less you wanna get caught,
You better want what you need!"

You better want what you need
If you laugh you must cry
Think before you speak
If you don't you might say goodbye
Now would that be right?
And if you jump the gun
You better catch the wind
This is your last chance
Just think if you win
All the pleasures you'll be enjoying…

And I was the figure on the mountain side
The shadow in the corner late at night
The guy at the party in the cowboy hat
Who pinched your ass when you walked past did it make you mad?
Or honey did you like?
Well fate sucks…
But I bet you enjoy it.

I was the man by the side of the road
Who recites his poetry and strips off his clothes have you got five dollars?
I'm an alcoholic
Let's talk
I'm so sober and lonesome

And it helps me to realize to see it there in every man's eye is a fear and a horrible passion
These are mine
Eyes of the Dragon

I was the nerd in the front of the class
The hippie in the park smoking grass
The man crying at the funeral
That nobody knew
And when the reverend said "Does anyone here protest this?"
I said "I Do! I Do! I Do!"

And anytime I had a chance in hell
I stole your eye and quickly fell into the scenery
A memory of a shadow

Well you didn't want what you need
You joked and laughed you should have cried
Thought before you spoke but look what you said you said goodbye
Oh, but I guess it's all right
You've got your universe to run
And yes, you run it right
But you've left if for us to burn
With the fire of the dragon

And it helps me to realize
To see it there in every man's eye
There's a fear and a horrible passion
These are mine
Eyes of the dragon
Track Name: Awake Sweet Dreamer
Awake Sweet Dreamer

Awake sweet dreamer
You've slept too long
The dawn has broken
Dark night has gone
The bell is ringing
Across the square
Calling you onward
We 'wait you here

Open your eyes child
Embrace the day
The evening shadows
Have passed away
No time for sleeping
The world rolls on
Awake sweet dreamer
To a happy home

No need to wander
Not anymore
The world is glistening
Outside your door
A fine tomorrow
It beckons you
Where a bright birdsong
It rings so true

Awake sweet dreamer
The sunlight shines
The band of angels
In perfect time
Awake sweet dreamer
This is your day
Bright comes the morning
Do not delay
