Track Name: Love You
Because I'll love you in the morning,
love you in the evening,
love you when the sun goes down
I swear I even will go through war
to save you
Because my love won't change
when we both grow old
I'll carry you around when your feet are sore
Because you are my sunshine to my cloudy days
Because I love writing love songs about you,
depicting everything beautiful about you
Because you are my inspiration
when I need some motivation
in my life
Because I'll never leave you behind
and I'll pick you up when you're down
Because you always turn my frowns around
and you make me feel like it's gonna be alright
Because I
I just love those simple things you do to me
that makes me go crazy
whenever I'm by your side
O ’cause I love it when you caress my hair
It makes me feel like I'm high in the air
Because I love listening to your songs
I wish they could last as long
As long as the pyramids in Egypt
As long as the pyramids in Copan
As long as the Great Wall of China
As long as I could breathe
Because when
Because when it all comes down, O
I wanna just be with you
Just call my name any time of day
and I'll be there, O
Because being without you
O baby
just means
there's nothing there
Track Name: The Worlds We Came From
Open up the inner eyes of the soul
Can’t you see how hard it is
to let go
I wanna bathe in the sun
and eat cotton candy all day
And then we meditate on a leaf
and go swimming in the breeze
And then we find a unicorn
and make him say “hey”

O fly
Always aiming for those stars
and running towards your dreams
Don’t be
don’t be afraid to be yourself
Let go and
fall in

Chorus 1A:
Dropping slowly down the rhythms
Let us guide us to
the worlds we came from

Searching for the dog we lost
and bring her home
to the worlds we came from

Dropping slowly down those trees
that let us be
to the worlds we came from

Searching for the maps we lost
that set us free
to worlds we come from

Chorus 1B:
The mountains are just
a mile away
We’re running into space
Time is coming to an end
Just let go
and fall in

Open up the inner hearts of the soul
Can’t you see how hard
it is to let go
I wanna bathe on the moon
and eat carrots all day
And then we meditate on a raindrop
and go swimming in the fog
And then we search for the stars
in the brightest of days

O fly
Always aiming toward your dreams
and running towards your goals
Don’t be
don’t be afraid to be yourself
Let go and
fall in

Chorus 1A

Chorus 1B
Track Name: Love Letter to No One
I’ve often thought about you 24 hours a day,
seven days a week
And my breath and skin is still filled
with your essence
Reminiscing about those good times
we'd spend in the dark
those nights
while a light
danced around our being
And it coiled itself around
our feet
O baby I tried so hard
but I just couldn't get rid of the thoughts of losing you

And maybe I'll say I need you so
and maybe I'll say I want you so
and baby I said it
I meant it
It may be pathetic
but baby I still love you
And it will go on and on
and on my friend
until we reach the very end
I promise it will be alright
I'll meet you at the other side

And I couldn't cry along with you
in your arms that night
but I’m crying now as I face it
So I'll take one deep breath to tell you
the remainder of it
that you showed me in love first
so babe please know this:

I will always be with you
You will always be with me
I will always be your friend
You will always be mine too
If you ever need anything
I will be here for you
I wish you so much happiness
I wish you everything bliss
Every joy
Every warmth
Every beautiful dream
But If I love you
I must
give you up

But baby I’ll…

But maybe I'll say I need you so
and maybe I'll say I want you so
and baby I said it
I meant it
It may be pathetic
but baby I still love you
And it will go on and on
and on my friend
until we reach the very end
I'll promise it will be alright
I'll meet you at the other side
Track Name: The Hearts Get Lonely Too
Don’t go
Stay, stay
Don’t go
Stay ha!

E-cling z-oh
Ayakatala
Nai-o

1, 2, 3 (growl)

Contemplation of the hearts and the soul
and I
And I feel a little fine now
But I
Who am I deceiving?
But I
Who am I deceiving?
A little ration
of the hearts and the soul
and I
And I feel a little fine now
But I
Who am I deceiving?
But I-l-I

Oh lately we seem to find
To find ourselves lost inside
Inside this mist
Inside this mist
Oh lately we seem to find
To find ourselves lost inside

(chumash welcoming chant)
Ay-ay iyangua
Ay-ay iyangua
Ay ay iyangua
Ay ay ay
Ay ay iyangua
Ay ay ayngua ayngua

Oh oh oh

(Mayan Bear chant)
Shutone oaye
Aya aya ayania
Aya aya ayania
Shutone oaye

The heart gets lonely
They welcome the love
Of my grandfathers
Of my grandmothers
The heart gets lonely
They welcome the love
of my community, of my family

Don’t go
Stay, stay
Track Name: Put My Hands in the Soil (I’ll Be Home Someday)
Why do I feel so blue
when I’ve got you
I’m going away
but I swear I’ll be home someday

Horsing around with my little cousin
I could see us married with half a dozen
Out on the porch singing the blues
The music only works when I’ve got you

Chorus:
Don’t disappear
Don’t ever think that I’m not here
I love you so
A part of me don’t wanna go

Tell me
you won’t have some baby drama
Tell me
you won’t have no stripper mama
Teach your poetry to kids in Compton
Go to sweat lodges in the mountains

Go to school—get your degree
You know I love to hear you sing
I’ll go to Nevada City in the spring
Ojai, San Francisco, Hawaii, too

Chorus

You tell me to stay
but you know I’m going away
You tell me don’t go
but you know I need to leave LA

You know
You already know
You know
You already know
You know
You already know

That I’ll be home
someday
Track Name: Wax Wings
We've flown on wax wings into the sun
and dived into the sea
We have grown with our hearts
already on our sleeves

O where did it get us?
O where are we now?
We are tightly woven
and wound

Because I loved running through
the ground fountains with you
and jumping into the sea

Chorus 1:
And don't you forgot about me (2x)

Because I loved hearing about
your views on life and politics and family
Because I love your dimples and your hair, too
and the way you move your eyes when
you’re thinking funny thoughts that shine

Because eh-hey
Please don't go
I want you to
come back home (2x)

Because I can't wait to reminisce anymore
Just as strong as I can't forget about you

Chorus 2:
And I will always remember you Eden (1x only 2x don't say name)

We've flown on wax wings into the sun
and dived into the sea
We have grown with our hearts
already on our sleeves
Track Name: Bear Medicine
Darlene:
The good red road ignites
a few inches past my toes
This moment is all I can hold
alive

The warrior of light
who wrestles in restlessness
claims her place
in the face of
extinction

Gets things done
when the speakers kept speakin’
and the lovers kept loving and the
people made their pain public

What does it mean to be seen like this,
in our own sadness?
To be heard in our own panic?
Distressed, my body couldn't stand it
Enduring the labor pains of birthing a blank canvas,
an empty chalice, nude feet on this planet

The sky bleeds warm rain
and I’m strong enough to gain
pieces of me dismembered

Do you remember? the movement,
the motion
Crying through corrosion
Stuck rusted potions
onto metals
They saw their stupidity,
weakness in rigidity
through religions, culture and pigments
I beg your forgiveness
but life is bigger than this
Secrets of divinity
told, stories pulled
from a place a little older than your grandpa
telling you to protect the poet, the child
everything wild
in the mystical styles
Relief from excreting the bile
of this society’s strange ways
I will not put down the page
of who I am
to concede to a plan
that fans the flames of sin against self

I am not
meant to rot in this pot haze
Too high to be phased
Sink my claws in and stay
deep
Under the street
My roots cross fade
into the earth’s blood veins
then rise like a bear,
humble and prepared to share
the medicine

Chorus: Mario (Mayan Bear song)
Shutone oaye
Aya aya ayania
Shutone oaye
Aya aya ayania
Shutone oaye
Aya aya ayania
Shutone oaye
Aya aya ayania

Luis:
En las montanas pacificas
Busco un oso que tiene tranquilida
Escuridad que me tienen con una furia
Que me calienta y me lleba a mas alla
Y vien que encuentro total mente completo
Satisfecno cuando su alma yo la tengo
Aqui yo me siento como agua ardiente
Siempre caliente mentalida que te detiene.

Chorus

Luis:
Platicando con mis ansestros
Esos indijenas que siempre fueron honestos en estas batallas se arancaron
siempre el alma a qui con su furia siempre atacan
Esta mentalida indijena siga Resucitando
Evolucioando y siempre por siglos
Asi es como me siento tan distinto
Arancando las raises, Seimpre me gusta volar

Chorus

Luis:
En este continente siempre, siempre
Lo tengo en mente, todo me sorprende
Y cuando tengo que reflejar a los dialectos
Que en este planeta se llegaron a escuchar
A si es como siempre yega esta voz
De este solitario siempre buscando
Ese calor ese espiritu que me tiene
Siempre me arolla en este
Universo soy honesto

Mapal come and save this place before it’s too late

With her anti-pollution laser ray
