CLOWNS EVERYWHERE When the whole world is your oyster Do you take it all and keep it to yourself In one big stack Or give it back Do you support your local dealers Have we manufactured more than we can use So take it back Just take it back They’re tossing goods into the dumpsters Making room on shelves for profit we can’t use When it’s all gone It’s all gone Another night another city Where is my mind where did I leave it all behind A different air a different aura Buildings growing tall beneath our shrinking heads Feeling tired Oh so tired

What If? 03:17
WHAT IF? With a straw in my mouth I lay down on the ground and dream Of a world that’s in peace With no one in the lead, oh please No war no hunger No killing, slaughter Yes to together Once and forever Colourful flowers for bees to empower The kingdom for lovers Their work we devour Hummingbird stands in the air Sirens brush through their thick hair Walking on swamps Swing on trees arms The world is a playground for love No war no hunger No killing, slaughter With a straw in my mouth I lay down on the ground and dream Of a world that’s in peace With no one in the lead, oh please

PARANOIA VS. MIRACLES Quantity over quality Eternal life has got you paranoid like a prisoner And you beg for your rations for your nation to be daddy But mommy’s gonna take you by the ear and make it clear That in nature, things are born with a purpose then they die Cause we can not life forever So enjoy and be grateful it’s the answer to the question Of how we should treat one another Quality over quantity maybe you should see What it’s like to be in different shoes We get to choose, baby win or lose It ain’t a game we’re all the same Don’t be fooled, by all the news, they’re telling you a lie Search deep inside, see the clues Before your very eyes

Mama Nature 03:55
MAMA NATURE It’s a dark cloud we’re travelling on People see what they want to see Forests, fresh water run through this great land Brings mama to take a stand Stockpiling all that you’ve got Interest is rising in your name The price is to high to make a winning game Brings mama to take a stand Profit with me I can see the forest through the trees Bought and paid for by the man That you know so intimately As long as we stay where we are We don’t need to be so alarmed Everyone knows what it’s like to be harmed Watch mama take another stand Profit with me I can see the forest through the trees Bought and paid for by the man That you know so intimately The tide’s taking another turn People believe in what they see Everyone knows what it’s like to be harmed Brings mama to take a stand Come with me No one has to worry, it’s destiny So get down on your knees Won’t you please, I’m begging you please Lalalalala…

Goodbye 04:21
GOODBYE Goodbye all you cobblestones, it’s been a lovely time To jump from one to another without touching any lines Goodbye all you crooked houses, each with their own charm Just knock ‘em down and turn ‘em around into soldiers on the line Goodbye to small businesses, you’re cut off at the hand These machines are faster and deliver on demand Goodbye fixing anything, no one’s got the time It’s quicker to replace it for a dollar and a dime Goodbye to the ears that hear the wisdom of the past Goodbye to the feeling so de-sensitized to touch Goodbye to the eyes that see the world beyond the screen Hello to the smell of trash we really made a scene Goodbye stars you’re hard to see in all those city lights Your horoscopic constellations outshined by satellites Goodbye snow you pretty flakes, you slowly leave this land Can count the times gone sledding this past decade in one hand Goodbye to the ears that hear the wisdom of the past Goodbye to the taste of soul the blues have all dried up Goodbye to the eyes that see the world beyond a screen It’s everything we hope for and it’s really quite a dream

CUENTA CONMIGO Original Lyrics: Una vez mas te digo, que lo que yo mas quiero, ohhh Sentir el mismo viento, vivir en el momento, ohhhhh Mi alma se columpia, en vibraciones tuyas Cuenta con migo A lo largo Soy parte de ti Apoyate mi amigo, te buscare el trigo La luz en tu mirada, mi mente esta clavada Cuenta con migo A lo largo Soy parte de ti Una vez mas te digo, tu eres lo que quiero ~~~~~~~~~ English Translation: Once again I tell you, what I want the most, Feel the same wind, live in the moment, ohhhhh My soul swings, in your vibrations Count on me Along the way I am part of you Lean on me my friend, I'll find you wheat The light in your eyes, my mind is hooked Count on me Along the way I am part of you Once again I tell you, you are what I want

Same Train 04:02
SAME TRAIN Everybody’s working doing their job, living for the weekend, till retirement comes Everyday routine watcha going to do with the money you made going to fly yourself to the moon? Wanna take a chance book a seat in advance, leave the poor behind, out of sight, out of mind Everybody’s on the same train, on the same train Going down the fast lane, down the fast lane Everybody’s feels pain inside Though it can leave a stain on your mind We can go together or be left behind First you go to school taught to work like a mule, are you really what you want or another one of daddy’s tools? Listen to authorities, do what your told gotta lose that fear, before we get old Have you realised we may run out of time, the dreams you once had could forever remain in your mind? Everybody’s on the same train, on the same train Going down the fast lane, down the fast lane Everybody’s feels pain inside Though it can leave a stain on your mind We can go together or be left behind

COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW Out here on Lake Brûlée A homestead rests where beavers play Once was a young man’s home Who loved to fish out on his boat Now left are memories In boxes full of dust and leaves Just from one photograph It’s evident that man could laugh These are the colours of the rainbow... The seeker travels far and wide To see what’s in the mind A blur of shades and tones His great ancestors hand design There is no limit to the light That shines in children’s eyes Remembering days of running wild There was so much to find These are the colours of the rainbow... The clouds have all rolled in The lake is dark the cabin dim This travellers pen is dry The candle paints a starry night We’re all born colour blind As time goes by the pigments show Each story meaningful And misty in the morning glow These are the colours of the rainbow...

STRUGGLING WITH THE YIN-YANG The news is ringing in my ears and fogging up my eyeballs It’s hard to know what to say when they say the things that they say Don’t call it ignorant I’m just as ignorant as you are They sell you ice cubes in Iceland when really they’re from Greenland And who’s to blame them when the money comes in uber loads So much information don’t want my head to explode Then someone has the nerve to tell you this is really what you need For sanity, then take it all away Listen to mommy she knows what is truly good for you But just be careful of the things she may be listening to They say that music opens doors it’s rather good to dance to ‘Cause if it makes you tingle probably thanks to drummer Ringo And all his cohorts that were born into another time And those before him boy they really made the sun shine indoors Just then the news comes in it’s time to be distracted again They call it A.D.D. or something that the doctor gives a name And they make the cure so hard to get There was a time when people first lived on these foreign lands When things got hard discovered ways to heal their minds with plants We take 3000 years of theories and just throw them away Or is it that they don’t make richer people richer everyday I have a friend who told me If you’re good, prepare ‘cause that evil Will always meet you eye to eye

Little Bird 03:28
LITTLE BIRD Where do you go little bird When you take off from the ground You sore above the world Endless skies to float around Everyday you come right back You won’t let me get too close What are you looking for Where is your home little bird How did you hatch from your shell-ter Where is your mother bird Are you all on your own Everyday you come right back You won’t let me get too close What are you looking for

CHILDHOOD DREAM Something that you never lose No one can take away The child inside will grow
 Unless you let it hide away
 Slow it down, look around Don’t you know We’re living life in paradise Years go flying by All these memories, blurry lines Rollercoaster rides What goes up, needs to come down again
12.
Love of Life 04:19
LOVE OF LIFE The love of life can take you places dear The love of life will take the wheel and steer It won’t desert you it is always here The love of life is what we have my dear It can convince you that there is no fear Each time a door opens wide It can open a million more in its stride The love of life can only be shared my friend Laughters the medicine on which you can depend Just when you think that it’s gone It comes up behind you with sunshine at dawn The love of life will wake you from your dream With deep dark thoughts that seem so cruel and mean And as you try steering the boat The river keeps rushing you struggle to keep it afloat The love of life can take you places dear

about

With duet vocal harmonies in the foreground, Marla & David Celia dive through progressive chord changes, elaborate arrangements and round it off with well-crafted ballads. There aren’t any genre borders. The lyrics circle around our lives in the present, during times of overproduction, capitalism, lack of compassion for one another and the desire to see change. Ironically some songs written before the global pandemic, alluded to the impending doom humanity is afflicting on itself.
