Track Name: The Rain Has Come
The rain has come again
to wash away your trouble and worry.
So do not hide, my friend,
let it fall all over you.
And may these tears that fall
be tears of joy.

The rain has come again
to wash this world clean of all fear.
To start anew from her life-giving waters.
So may these tears that fall
be tears of forgiveness.

Oooooh... Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain for our children.
Oooooh... Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall for peace.

The sun will shine again
and cast a thousand rainbows in a day.
The trees will grow and the rivers will run free.
So may these tears that fall help us remember
that these dreams of hope will come to pass
Track Name: Butterfly Medicine
Butterfly, land upon my shoulder
and whisper on the faintest summer breeze
Butterfly, share with me of your secrets
how to leave it all behind and set out free

Something inside me is shifting
I'm not the same in my skin
Lifted above on the wings of love
I set forth on the journey within

Butterfly, I watch myself grow older
attaching to the comforts that I please
Can I try to leave all I know behind me?
and transform with beauty of release

Something inside me is shifting
I'm not the same in my skin
Lifted above on the wings of love
I transform on the journey within

Now I fly, wings spread open in sunlight
I float above the canopy of trees
I realize all souls are united
our essence is eternal, fly free

Something inside us is shifting
We're not the same in our skin
Lifted above on the wings of love
We transform on the journey within
Track Name: Earth Wisdom Family
Earth wisdom family
Our hearts in a circle belong
Our love weaves a tapestry of song
We cover the world in a blanket of prayers
Pile on the blessings and peel back the layers
We trust and surrender to our mother's power
In our spirits her knowledge and consciousness flower
Alone on this journey you can never be
You belong to an earth wisdom family
Track Name: High Seas
Spiraling, spinning, releasing, beginning
Come in to this moment be free
Balance at center, vibration will enter
Transformation of divinity

Change is the nature of all form (nothing can be held)
Peace at the center of the storm
Bliss when we allow it all to be (all is love)
Waves crash only on the surface of the sea

Twisting and turning, listening, learning
Let it in and arrive as you are
Gather together and grounding remember
Your guide is the light of the stars

Change is the nature of all form (nothing can be held)
Peace at the center of the storm
Bliss when we allow it all to be (all is love)
Waves crash only on the surface of the sea
Track Name: Into The Dance
Come, step into the dance
Feel yourself be moved through space with grace
To rhythm that enchants

Come, slip into the song
Carry us away to spin and play
Dancing we belong

Under the moon we're united
Spirits join us in the dance
Hand in hand upwards forever
The music has us in a trance

Come, step into the dance
Feel yourself be moved through space with grace
To rhythm that enchants

Beckoning the beat
Drumming will ignite our hearts' delight
Celebrating feet

Slip into the song
Carry us away to spin and play
Dancing we belong
Track Name: The River's Song
The voices of the ancient ones are carried on the river's song.

Healing waters, polished stones.

Falling rejoining, flowing returning.
Track Name: Friendly Mystery
To make a friend of mystery keep surrender by your side
And walk behind humility so there's nowhere for knowing to hide
When you think you've got the knack beware the ego creeping back
So take a seat. Release your plans. Mystery isn't a one-night stand.

Climb that inner mountain high
Until you rise above the mist
Survey your island in the sky
To get a glimpse of infinite

Now money comes and money goes and everything in between
If you've flipped that coin before then you know what I mean
So you will find with this game as your past
That it's not worth your time, look for something that lasts.
To mend your soul with golden thread leave a little love before you're dead

Climb that inner mountain high
Until you rise above the mist
Survey your island in the sky
To get a glimpse of infinite

Some say science is the truth. Some say spirit reigns.
My grandpa swore it was vermouth, but I say they're all the same
All these words just mask the one leading us into war instead of fun
Answers lead to enemies so let's set sail for mystery

Climb that inner mountain high
Until you rise above the mist
Survey your island in the sky
To get a glimpse of infinite
Track Name: The Mother Rhythm
The mother rhythm, the pulse of life
The turning of the seasons, the dance of day and night

In the circling of birds, in the swarming of the hive
In the shell of the seashore, in the gathering of tribes
In the sewing of our seeds, in the love that grows
In the beating of our hearts ancestral blood that flows into

The mother rhythm, the pulse of life
The turning of the seasons, the dance of day and night

In light and in darkness, despair and bliss
The collective codependence of the dance of opposites
In the phases of the moon, in the breath you take in
One is born one dies and the breath goes out again

The mother rhythm, the pulse of life
The turning of the seasons, the dance of day and night

When the rain falls on mountains and into run
Ever-flowing to the ocean reuniting into one with the
Mother rhythm in the tides of the sea
In the songs of the people as we pray for unity with

The mother rhythm, the pulse of life
The turning of the seasons, the dance of day and night
Track Name: Let It Be Easy
Relax. What's your hurry?
Sit back. No need to worry.
Here we are. It's a fine place to start.
Let's take this moment to listen to our hearts.
One thing life has taught me: when everything seems lost,
When the road you're on is rocky, you have to love with all you've got, and

Do not despair. Truth lies in unexpected places. Let it be easy.
Simple things are the most important. Waste no time with complications. Let it be easy.

Be gentle with yourself.
We all need our own helping hand.
We are as we are; no need to apologize.
Fear not the first step for there's always second tries.
Sometimes when our steel is cracked, our faith is wearing thin.
But all the fractures we contain are where the light shines in, so

Do not despair. Truth lies in unexpected places. Let it be easy.
Simple things are the most important. Waste no time with complications. Let it be easy.
Track Name: Mother in the Wild
I see you shining in the darkness
The splendid shimmer of your soul
How your heart will reach a hand out
To cast a light into shadow

I feel your presence always with me
Like an ever-burning flame
Every breeze upon the ocean
Every voice calls out your name

Birthing form eternal source
You are every newborn child
Bringing forth creative force
Jai Ma mother in the wild
Jai Ma mother in the wild
