I’ve come with the fire
I’m burning this whole city down ’till I find what I came for
I’ve been sent by the greatest of heroes
I have come for His Love
I’ve come with with the fire
And I am just one of the many who fight in His army
I’ve been sent by the friend of the fallen
I have come for his love
Ramachandra Mama Bandhu
Ramachandra Daya Sindhu
Though I am the smallest of soldiers, this spark is eternal
I’ve been sent by the Lord of the universe
I’ve come with the fire x 4
Once wrapped in a lover’s embrace
Tries desperately searching but
Drifts over the sea on the
A sweet sound
Whispers you haven’t forgotten
I think I hear you
Across the ocean
You call my name.
Once I was near you,
Help me remember again.
If dreams are where I can find you,
Don’t let me wake.
I’ll rise when you have returned,
Until then, I’ll wait.
You must have known
I couldn’t go on if you
Left my sight.
So is that you, love
Calling me to you tonight?
Once wrapped in a lover’s embrace is
A lesson has been planted
Now the vines are creeping out
They wrap me in their branches
And they pull me through the ground
I must return to the earth
Flavored by the moon
I’ll come out someday
But not someday soon.
My lungs will sift the soil
Filter water through my bones
All my organs like an organ
With a hundred sacred tones
The lesson hold me tightly
And whispers in my ear
“You won’t be going nowhere.
You won’t be going nowhere.
You won’t be going nowhere
‘Till we’re finished here.”
So give me the night
That’s when the healing comes.
Give me the night
I will heal in the dark.
Where the good things grow.
So underground, underground
The chase is ceremonial
The lesson lies in wait
It trusts me, trusts me
Trusts that I will always take the bait.
There’s no use in running
The lesson always wins
Just when I think it’s done
That’s when it all begins.
I’ve been lost
I’ve been wandering this life without the light
But not anymore
I’m trying to find the answers
So I’ve come to the only one who knows.
I want to fly, I want to soar
I want to try and sing your name
With my heart open wide
I want my my mind to be your temple
Let my thoughts be a home where you reside.
And though it isn’t easy,
I’m going to try.
You’re showing me the way
And so I pray
You are the mountain on the shore
I’m just a little grain of sand
That gets washed away
And the tides, they can take me
If you want them to
Just as long as they bring me back your way
So I bow down to you in gratitude
I, who was blind.
And like fire in the night,
You’ve opened up my eyes so I can see the truth
A victory flag held high up in the sky.
Om ajñāna-timirāndhasya jñānāñjana-śalākayā
caksur unmīlitaḿ yena tasmai śrī-gurave namaḥ
Help me out
Give me the benefit of the doubt
That maybe my intentions are good
And that I’m trying to do what I should.
Like the tide
I fall away and then I rise
But how many times can one heart break
Upon the shores of the same mistake?
Maybe I’m still working on things
I break apart
The flood gates rise
My flaws exposed
I’m not surprised
I feel myself unraveling
But it’s only me that I’m battling.
I’m 5 years old
I’m paper thin
I’m solid gold
My history, it floods my veins
I’ve changed so much, I’m still the same.
So, maybe I’m still working on things
And that’s fine.
If I can finally see my shadow,
That means somewhere
There’s a light.
caksu-dan dilo jei, janme janme prabhu sei.
“He opens my darkened eyes and fills my heart with transcendental knowledge. He is my Lord birth after birth.”
Wake me up
I’m foreign in this habitat
So I think it’s time I let it go
You can tell my ego that
Time to pull the curtains back
Time to let the light shine in
Time to take my power back
I’ve had enough of this mess,
And I can tell that there’s no winning.
So why try? Why try?
This is war
And māyā’s not a diplomat
So I gotta be a warrior
Time to take my weapons up
Time to face the enemy
Time that I start fighting back
Ooh, it’s so painful to find out I’m not in charge
That I’m the servant of the servant,
Not the boss.
The general says the method’s iron clad.
Says He’ll keep all that I’ve done
Says He’ll carry what I lack
Time to let the mercy in
Time to let my faith get strong
And you can tell my ego that
I’m going to fight the good fight
And there’s no guarantee I’ll win it
But I’ll try, I’ll try.
Maybe we’re all just parallel lines
Each one on our path, side by side.
And every time I think we collide,
I see that it’s all in my mind.
You gave me the key to a door I can’t open.
I saw you, I saw you. I thought you were broken.
I forgot the Almighty is present in all.
You stumbled and I, I took the fall.
So, maybe we’re all just parallel lines
You gave me your power, or maybe I took it
My means and my motives, they all became crooked.
The hands of fate, they are not my hands.
I alone and my own, now I understand.
That maybe we’re all just parallel lines
I see that’s it’s all in my mind.
I must let go
For you to grow.
For me to grow, too.
I alone am my own, now I understand.
I alone am my own
Now I understand.
Yo, working through these lifetimes
Struggling through my mind
Trying to find the path that
Leads to where the light shines
Wrestle with my shadow
Grudge match ego battle tangled
In these curtains
Sleep walking through these castles
There’s got to be a thread
Connecting every step
A path paved with grace
May I be led
Through the corridor of time
Hallways in the mind
Navigating through the doors of these lifetimes.
Sometimes I feel these shadows testing me
Working hard, always trying to get the best of me.
Pulling at my senses
Six inner enemies trying to capture me
I paid the price in the past for those penalties
Mind stained by the pain of past memories
Past actions and reactions that made me bleed
Binding me like chains
Yo, I pray to be free.
I pray to be free
From these lifetimes
But it’s only me and that I’m battling
I”m 5 years old
I’m solid gold.
Yo,I pray to stay humble as I stumble through the struggle
Toward the light at the end of the tunnel
Godspeed, help me have the courage
Help me to see
The only obstacle I face on this path is me.
Died so many times
Body burned to ash
I keep coming back
‘Coz I’m tied to the past
Honestly, if you want to know the truth
So that I can be with you.
I died so many times before
Body turned to ash
So maybe I’m still working on things
If I can finally see my shadow
There’s a light
Of these lifetimes
The echo of your names
Lingers on my breath
Long after they’re sung.
A sacred serenade
It’s just you and me
You and everyone.
So if I ask for anything,
It’s just to be here
Over and over and over again
Won’t you bring me back here?
To sing your holy name, Lord.
And I bow down before you.
Over and over and over again.
The rhythm reaches deep
It pulls my heart
It makes me want to dance.
The melody repeats
Then shifts, then soars
It melts me in a trance.
It’s like a sip of the heavenly
That lyrical melody
I feel it envelop me
It heals the heart incredibly.
Been living with the sickness
But they’ve given me the remedy
I got a ways to go, but I feel something developing.
On the surface, it’s music song and verses.
But as a way to free the mind, this process is just perfect.
The beat will keep you leaping to your feet
Repeat the words and leave the world
And make you feel at peace
So we can see it sweetly working
We under the spell
Some bliss, some joy, some wonder as well.
The drums rise up into a thunderous swell.
Our doubts are torn asunder as we’re stunned by the yell
Of a thousand singing voices that just hunger for help
‘Coz yo, the Name in itself contains an infinite wealth
Spirit formed of vibration that’s straight from mystical realms.
We swim in oceans of sound, devotion lets us transcend
The divine descends
We’re dancing with Him over and over again
Twenty-four hours just isn’t enough
To fulfill my needs.
So I’ll sing your names wherever I go
And you’ll stay with me
Humble like grass, tolerant like a tree
With no false prestige, just respect unto thee
Kirtaniyah sada harih
That’s where I want to be.
You’ve got to have faith.
And be patient.
She’s far away now
She’s back in the place they call “home”
And deep down she wonders why
Nothing she does feels the same
He sits in silence
He’s just where he needed to be
And deep down he’s praying
“Show me the way to be free,
To be free.”
Hopes are as high as they’ll ever be
And their fears are as deep as the sea.
“Save me, save me” they say
“I’ll believe, I’ll believe.”
Oh, don’t give up now.
Don’t give up now.
Just have faith, be patient.
And you’ll see in time
You’ll be fine.
They dance in darkness
But they know what they need to do
And deep down they’re saying
“I leave the rest up to you.
It’s up to you.”
“Guide me, guide me to where I should be,
And I’ll believe.”
But oh, give them something
Let them know
That their hearts aren’t just burning in vain
For the things they never saw
Although they were there all along.
The sun is rising
Faith can move mountains, you know
Deep down they know you’re with them
Wherever they go
So they go.
They know that all they can do is believe
And I believe
Just have faith
So many lives
Of walking, aimless.
I think it’s painless.
One more drop
In the ocean of fear, I.
What’s a moment
To a million years?
That we’re just
It’s the same old story
All so small
Just a sparkle of starlight
In the sky
What’s a life worth living
If we don’t know why?
But I feel alive.
I feel alive.
kadā karisyasīha mām krpā-katāksa-bhājanam
Take it slow
Life is a balance
Of troubles and triumphs.
Try your best
Trust in yourself
You’ve got what it takes
To be great.
Keep your faith
Rooted in love
Of those who encourage
Don’t hold back
Give it your all
The whole world is waiting, so
And when you’re singing out
You will know
The truth is inside of you
You will hear
That She has been calling you home.
She has been calling you home.
