Track Name: Soul's on Fire
Cheat the internal voice of doom
Act soon ‘cos it’s taking up too much room
Let inspiration send its secret symphony
Directly into me

Set yourself on the road to freedom, here
When will the believer make the doubtful disappear
Simple as a symbol, get yourself fired up
Make it, do it, feel it, make it

Got to do the thing that you love to do
Stop the foolish things that’s been holding you
Flex your wings of desire
Your soul’s on fire

Who can resist the appearance of the next discovery
Or the one who listens to the heart that’s saying ‘follow me’
Feel your chemistry move from the trial to beguile
And back to a smile in only a short while

And the shock propels you to the heavens, no agenda
No 6s and 7s, just surrender
And the muse smiles and smiles over the fireworks
Because action is applauded by the universe

Got to do the thing that you love to do
Stop the foolish things that’s been holding you
Flex your wings of desire
Your soul’s on fire
Track Name: Pilgrims
Hara mahadeva shambo hara
Mahadeva shambo

Hara mahadeva shambo hara
Mahadeva shambo

Kashi vishwanath a gange
Kashi vishwanath a gange
Kashi vishwanath a gange

Praise praise the highest God
Whichever God is yours
Go down to the river with me

Praise praise the highest God
Whichever God is yours
Go down to the river with me
Track Name: My Mother's Cooking
My mother's cooking is 10 000 miles away
And I miss her flavours much more than I can say
And my father's deeper than any ocean that I know
And for years he's been dreaming of a place that he can't go
But someday he'll go

My sister crossed the desert but could only stay a while
I feel lucky and grateful for the chance to see her smile
And my mum, she's a believer, finds comfort in the cross
She prays for the family, keeps us safe at any cost

My father's embrace is like nothing I can name
Emotions run deeper than any words can contain
And I cried like a baby when I left them for the sun
And they made it easy, the hardest thing I've ever done

My mother's cooking is 10 000 miles away
And I miss her flavours much more than I can say
Much more than I can say
Track Name: Nation
The more time you got, less you want me
I came to see what surrounds her

Trying to pull the bear out of the box out of the box
If you want something, why don't you ask
Why don't you live with me, why don't you come
Come on together now but don't bring your mum

Why don't you tell me how it is

It's just the state of the nation
Or a standing ovation
Listen to your heart that's beating
It's not your hair receding
Why don't you tell me something
I don't know what rhymes with something

Why don't you look in the mirror
Maybe you'll see things much clearer
Why don't you eat what you want to
'Cos I don't know what you want

Why don't you..

It's just the state of the nation
Here is your standing ovation
Why don't you want what you're receiving
'Cos it's not your hair that's receding

It's just the state of the nation
Here is your standing ovation
Why don't you want what you're receiving
'Cos it's not your hair that's receding

It's your heart, it's your heart..
