“Anchorless” ©2021 John Blangero / Reborn Pelican Songs (BMI) Gather up children and hear the words of men Sour as spoiled milk with a dull knife of contempt Brooding in silence after I have had my say Anchorless and bidden on my way Knocking at back doors on gravel-covered roads This mule is bound for clover, but the stain of memory grows The day is summer thick and I'm weary to the bone Anchorless and searching for a home The freight trains slumber in the rising heat A woman's smile answers my prayers She opens the door into her father’s empty house Summer sweat is clinging, the summer sweat is clinging If I could be who I was meant to be Lord, this Southern girl would breathe life into me Before the world wakes, she gives me her prize I'm anchorless yet worthy in her eyes I see her walking in the fields at night Her long hair falling to her breasts I kiss her eyelids in her father's empty house Summer sweat is clinging, the summer sweat is clinging If I could be who I wanted to be Lord, this Southern girl would breathe life into me Before the world wakes, I say my goodbyes Still anchorless but wearing a disguise

The Lost (I) Shadows of Time: Am I lost... Am I found Here I am... Turn around... See the sun... Touch the ground Fading light is... All around Shadows fall upon us all Shadows fall upon us all Is the race to the swift The battle to the strong Riches to wise men who will take it all Is favor given to men of skill Time and chance does happen it will Shadows fall upon us all Shadows fall upon us all I came back and looked under the sun Nothing's changed... Of no one Am I lost... Am I found Here I am... Turn around Shadows fall upon us all Shadows fall upon us all (II) The Reality Shadows dimly fade Out of sight out of day Darkness surrounds me more As someone shuts the door But wait there's a ray of light Cutting through the blackest night I know what to do I see where to go The end is in sight but oh no Here I am all alone Where do I turn where will I go Searching deep within my soul For the love for the hope for the truth but it's all gone But wait there's a ray of light Cutting through the blackest night I know what to do I see where to go The end is in sight but oh no Why Am I still alone Where do I turn where will I go...

Nightfall Warm light from the window Looking back at you With words too proud to say Another heart fading away Close call A second chance is given With nothing to regret Those dreams begin again My love for you remains Riding a wave we have our doubts and worries It feels like sink or swim With every change we think we're closer But deep within our hearts Somehow we're drifting far apart Morning A red sky slowly rising We can't look away Hand in hand we blindly go Where we have been before Free fall A promise once it's given All our smiles wane Telling us to stay And then we change it anyway Riding a wave we have our doubts and worries It feels like sink or swim With every change we think we're closer But deep within our hearts Somehow we're drifting far apart All the while You quietly strayed Signs you sowed hidden Time passes, gone now Nowhere I'll find A safe place to hide Someday I'll find Shadows in your eyes Riding a wave we have our doubts and worries It feels like sink or swim With every change we think we're closer But deep within our hearts Somehow we're drifting far apart

Eva Prima Pandora The very first woman was deceived In succeeding centuries She would desire to learn As a man was allowed to Instead she was given A tribute to vanity Fine clothes Jewelry A pot of gold coins Pearls for fashion Eva Prima Pandora Eve the first Pandora Both a blessing and a curse A young girl (how young she was) Primeval (tempted by fate) Loss of innocence A victim of Conflict outside Her comprehension More than a temptress Evil escaping The box she has opened (An adolescent girl Taken aback by The contents of The ornamental box she had opened) Eva Prima Pandora

Death is just a feeling that you're never coming back It's just a bloated heart and an empty bed A room that's full of cries and screams that drive me mad If death is just a feeling then I am surely dead My eyes grow dim when the night comes down I wear the mask of a lonesome clown I lost my crown and now I'm no one I didn't know it would be late I thought you'd stay, I hoped you'd wait The dream is short, my sins still grab me by the throat and... Death is just a feeling that you're never coming back It's just a bloated heart and an empty bed A room that's full of cries and screams that drive me mad If death is just a feeling then I am surely dead In your mind, I am a beast, too wild to tame And you'll cry when the wind cries my name I ask you forgiveness, I know you can hear this I try to smile but the wounds forever bleed Down the aisle, I burned the books, denied the creed I ask you forgiveness, I know you can hear this Take my hand, make me dream, tell me it's not what it seems Wake me up, let me in, empty this heart of the sins I beg you forgiveness, I know you can hear this Death is just a feeling that you're never coming back It's just a bloated heart and an empty bed A room that's full of cries and screams that drive me mad If death is just a feeling then I am surely dead If I were you I would have run away, and if I were me I would have followed you But as days slipped through the fabrics of my existence I Came to realize that I was no one That everything I know of is an illusion, that I myself am a projection of hundreds of tiny thoughts that came together by the Coincidence of tragedy That night I took a pill for every thought Spilled ink over every little corner of the life I thought I'd lived I closed my eyes, felt the pills invading my veins Felt the ink filling my lungs My nerves started to give in as my sobriety broke down into darkness The tiny rays of light that danced along the bed sheets The next day were the alarming revelation that death is just a feeling And that what I killed last night wasn't my flesh But my connection to the surreal skies I roamed in since the creation of the universe I was already dead when you touched my face Death is just a feeling

We watch the unlikely snow, They prepare for another war As the world runs dry. Kiss your love, Hold on to the mortal heart You hear within her, And in the end we’re all alone, The nightmare begs, It falls into the life Where you love me so But I am a sinner. Promise me we’ll laugh again. Lay down and sleep, To see us now in future’s fickle dream. To hold a hand in hand or whisper still: “Will we meet again? After the time came To go and hope?” It takes courage to see, The skywound right here, Above us. And in the end we’re all alone The nightmare begs, It falls into the night Where you love me so But I am a sinner. Promise me we’ll laugh again, Lay down and sleep, To see us now in future’s fickle dream. Skywound Please don’t let me write that song again, Skywound I’m scared to sing, and of my gift to see Skywound Lord, undo the curses we have made Skywound Nothing’s wrong to stand here, hope and pray. For each sparkle, thousands are born, Waiting for synchronicity, We stood and looked at each other, And recognized. Late for a hundred years, So let go. When the bridge under our feet Turns to fog, and dissolves. We believe we would stand strong For each other. Tell, me, if we will have to go now, Will you find me next time?

There are moments of clarity Here they are Different worlds colliding Like stardust falling from the sky Unnoticed, unaware Faces touching, fingers brushing Holding faces with eyes wide open Smiling to the sun There are moments of clarity In our passing through, Here they are, If you look close enough. There is peace and joy and love If you let them shine through.

THE TURNING OF THE GLASS Music by Martin Springett / Lyrics by Terry Findlay The Turning Of The Glass Lyrics by Terry Findlay / Music by Martin Springett The glass upturned begin it’s measure once more In countless repetitions it spins on once more It turned when I fell in love With her beauty and her youth When all my senses cam alive It turned when a child was born Bringing light I’d never seen Showing me my mortality It turned while I lay sleeping In a dream that broke my heart Visions of a different life It turned when the music played To make a better world To waken the fearful heart to hope Again the glass turns to it’s task Once more once more To count the measures left to me Once more once more To waken the fearful heart to hope

Lyrics & Music by Jack Dimensions & Alvare Goco "Loose Strap" Ancestral honey eyes forgot how to dance Up or down, air still continues its way I didn’t know him well but we all carry a part of him Far or near we are going to find the same Over the window Sun isn’t rising Nobody falls yet the same story again Believers and naives dismiss the glory Without even knowing what it’s means to be An alien memory A song in January Wakes up everyone and makes them feel at home A distant moment full of close friends Crying and helplessness as he would have liked. A few days and a slump What was left he really enjoyed Arbitrary ignorance put him to dance once again. Just white room with a blue veil Cry and laugh next to your sleep He already left, the strap came off And that loose strap inspired us! An alien memory A song in January Wakes up everyone and makes them feel at home. A distant movement full of close friends Crying and helplessness all of us hope that! Ancestral honey eyes, forgot how to dance Up or down air still continues it’s way Heaven erased all trace of him Loose trap in the universe is lost.

Noise machine It’s obscene Caught in the noise machine You can’t believe All that you see and hear But I need to believe in something Help me dream A world with no noise machine Where we can trust all that we see and hear To live we must believe in something All we see All we hear All we want All we fear Everything Is so unclear

3 Minutes Music & Lyrics by Karen Langley and Rob Williams 25 chains, some locks and a rope, a lead lined chest and a sliver of hope…. I’ve done it before, I’ve done it before, in time and with zeal, I’ll do it again! Most think it’s a hoax, but it’s painfully real; now comes the plunge, through the bubbling water…. They think I am lost, like a lamb to the slaughter! Three minutes I have to break free of the bonds…the silence awaits me, pushing me hard, pushing me hard to the bottom. Tight lungs I cannot contract! My pain is part of the act. My mind is still as the lock is opened; a spiritual freedom that takes only seconds, only seconds…. Three minutes I have, 3 minutes I have, 3 minutes I have to unlock my chains…..3 minutes I have, 3 minutes I have, 3 minutes I have to unlock my chains and get to freedom! I surface, to meet the applause that beckons – clap,clap,clap,clap,clap,clap,clap…. It’s better to breathe; it’s better to breathe and dive again another time. It’s better to breathe; it’s better to breathe and dive again another time – listen to the waves lapping against the sides! Be careful of the hubris that kills you; be careful of the hubris that will kill you; be careful of the hubris will kill you; be careful of the hubris that will kill you!!!! It’s better to breathe, it’s better to breathe and dive again another time, It’s better to breathe, it’s better to breathe and dive again another time…..

ALL OPEN EYES by Mike Visaggio

 Intro ---- We know the wind doesn't blow in vain Seeking to cry out every person's name And though the list has no end once it's begun The task of finishing is often sung V.1 (Realization) In foreign lands on my own soil in total disarry I found a cabin in the woods where the soul survivors stay So near at hand and yet so far, so close but not to tough A spirit flies, all open eyes perceiving it as such All open eyes, all open eyes can see the glory They're sure they haven't seen mirages alone Don't believe the lies, now are they wise enough to see me I'm trying to shine enough to reach your open eyes Your open eyes, Your open eyes V.2 (Imagination) In your own hands, in your possession in spaces all your own You've got a choice and there's a voice that sounds out from what you've known A voice that tells you where you are and where you want to go And you can surmise your open eyes will show you what you want to know All open eyes, all open eyes can see the victory They're sure they haven't seen deceit and decay Although the lies try to surprise the weary traveler I'm trying to shine enough to reach your open eyes Your open eyes, Your open eyes V.3 (All Open Eyes) When you cross over the Rubicon that everyone must face You'll turn around at the trumpet sound and see the whole human race You'll have a different body then, and sorrows turned to joy No more the knife, eternal life, the bondage of death destroyed All open eyes, all open eyes will share the awakening They're sure they'll live forever when the day comes Cast down the lies, tell all the world what you are seeing You'll certainly shine enough to reach all open eyes With open eyes, press towards the prize Shed the disguise and sympathize Light in the skies, peace, symphonize, Hold tight the prize with open eyes We knew the wind didn't blow in vain It finally called out every person's name The list is now completed, the work is done World without end, life has begun

TO MY LOVE (Dyanne Potter Voegtlin, Jan-Christian Vögtlin) To my love I think, dear friend, I understand you better now Though I cannot answer Surrounded by the fullness of living You allow yourself to starve I think, dear friend, I understand you better now Have you not the courage to break free? She is not so strong, she that binds you And your tears fall inside where you can’t feel them

Hey there, people have fear Keep it on the down-low Keeping it near Hey, swallow my pride I need something to Wash me on the inside I, see it in you're eyes About to lose control And you just can't let it go Oh, someone hurt you bad Gonna get even And even keep a running tab (Chorus) Don't drop me in the water Don't wanna breathe that air A darkness that's approaching Like a cloud everywhere Hey, news for you A heavy load to carry Be there if you want me to Man, lay it aside work on it together Let's unite this great divide (music interlude) (Repeat Chorus) (Chorus) Don't drop me in the water Don't wanna breathe that air A darkness that's approaching Like a cloud everywhere

THE PRISM - Joe Deninzon You're seeing things through the wrong prism And your prism is just a prison And if you don't adjust the mirror you're heading for a head-on collision Lights on take an intermission Your thoughts plague you win indecision Second guessing your stated mission While we don't have a pot to piss in Put it off til tomorrow We're still drowning in sorrow Break it all and your borrow We're still drowning in sorrow You're seeing things through the wrong prism And your prism is just a prison Take a knife to the nervous system You're breaking up the house we live in You try to sell us on your big vision And your vision is deep division What you preach is a false religion No intellect or intuition Put it off til tomorrow We're still drowning in sorrow Break it all and your borrow We're still drowning in sorrow Put it off til tomorrow We're still drowning in sorrow Break it all and your borrow We're still drowning in sorrow
