The Morning Birds Los Angeles, California

A Toast to the Glass Half Full Crowd
After 2 years of an undying urge, a sense of something to say,
whispers that had to be answered, in a round house with no corners of stagnation, only a vortex of creative force resulting in an opportunity to convert something into something that wasn’t, a world of truths emerged. With hearts full of love, The Morning Birds produce songs of illumination for you ... more

Track Name: The QUICKENING
(Jenn)
Day breaks and the shadows run away
Day breaks in a moment of silence
and the thunderclouds are rollin' in the city it's comin'
Can you hear it? It's comin' it's callin', it's comin', it's callin'


(Sam)
Let's get it started, let's get it started, cause I don't want to wind up broken-hearted.
(Open your eyes)
Start livin' in your heart and don't let it harden.
(Open your eyes)
You're livin' in the garden, darlin'
(open your eyes)

Woooooooooooooo...


The QUICKENING
Time's are changin, they're rearranging
The QUICKENING

So keep it movin', keep it movin

(Day breaks and the shadows run away
Day breaks in a moment of silence
and the thunderclouds are rollin in the city it's comin
Can you hear it? It's comin' it's callin', it's comin', it's callin')

Stop telling me you're only human
(Open your eyes)
You're much more than what they've told you and what they've sold you
(Open your eyes)
You're what the universe unfolds through
(Open your eyes)
Let it unfold you...

Woooooooooo...

The QUICKENING
It's getting stranger, yet there's no danger
The QUICKENING

Times are changing
its coming soon
times are changing
its coming soon
times are changing
its coming soon
times are changing
its coming soon
times are changing
Track Name: Resonance
I got the blues for you
I got a heart so true
It hurts me hurts me when I lose my cool
If I could turn back time
Baby ya know I would
I’m outta my mind lose anything this good
I gotta get a grip, I gotta handle my ish
Get it together cause we got money to get
I don’t want to convince ya
But I sense your hesitance
Take a second and just listen baby
Feel my resonance.

Feel. Feel my resonance! Heal. Feel my resonance!

Ooooo, ya gotta self persavere and baby have no fear
First love ya, love your self to make things clear
Don’t try to impress, stop trying to be the best
Just express yourself and rise above the rest
I don’t care what they say, I just create my own way
Stay true to my soul and in my truth I stay
Centered in my heart as I set the presedence
Betta believe the whole world is gonna feel my resonance.

Feel. Feel my resonance! Heal. Feel my resonance!

(Call to prayer)

5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Singular sensation,
The frequency vibration of the universe in action
Now I see
Good God Almighty, I’m free
At last the single most important thing is that I believe
In god myself
Not collecting dust on a shelf
I gotta be knowin and showin and flowin positively
Creatively
Mind-shaping reality.
It’s love that shows the evidence
come on and feel my resonance.

Feel. Feel my resonance! Heal. Feel my resonance!

Om gum gunna putaye namaha! (x 16)

Ya know I love ya, ya know that I love ya! (x4)
Ya gonna feel it, ya all gonna feel it! (x4)
Track Name: Sunset Drive
I'm here to please you, so don't be shy
Jump on in let me be your guide
Show you the stars in the boundless sky
Take a ride down sunset drive
I won't deceive ya, baby I'm your guy
Bet you never felt so alive
Roll down the window feel the wind rush by
Take a ride down Sunset Drive

Down Sunset Drive x 4

Sunset lighting
I feel blinded
Take me to my suite
I go thru the light
Forget the gage
Doing 79
Bring it to me....
(go to the light)
Take me down, down, down, down, down
Sun set.

I won't deceive ya, baby I'm your guy
Bet you never felt so alive
Roll down the window feel the wind rush by
Take a ride down Sunset Drive

Down Sunset Drive x 4

Sunset lighting
I feel blinded
Take me to my suite
I go thru the light
Track Name: Smart So
You think you’re smart so you run away
Save your troubles for another day
Have you not figured out you are everywhere
So your reflection is always there

Go in circles, drive you crazy
And it’s done, you’re done, it’s done, you’re done
Just face your fears, tear them apart
and have some fun, some fun, some fun!

(Repeat both 2 x’s)
Track Name: Oh Yeah!
Come awaken in the purification
Burn through the sensation
Raise the vibration
See through the illusion
Of the digital revolution
Use your heart as a tool to see through the confusion
Turn up the fire within
Que up the choir and sing
A Hallelujah flip on the modem wire me in
Soon as this record spins the whole world will acquire a taste
And catapult us, shoot us even higher in space
Oh yeah!
Ain’t it nice when life flow like water
Oh yeah!
Man I’m grateful for every dolla
Oh yeah!
Now I know what I I been missin
Oh yeah!
All my dreams are comin’ to fruition
Check it
I plant the seed like a plug in my microphone,
Emergency telephone
I got The Morning Bird fever
and I’ll never leave her
If you ain’t got no faith I’ll make you a believer
Yeah,
This is an ancient kinda sound
Lost no more, we show you how to get down
We take rules and regulations and we set them on fire
We’ve come to inspire, yeah.
Oh yeah!
Ain’t it nice when life flow like water
Oh yeah!
Man I’m grateful for every dolla
Oh yeah!
Now I know what I I been missin
Oh yeah!
All my dreams are comin’ to fruition
Here come the sun…
ya know I can rely on ya darlin
Make me feel like the day is young…
Yo, Jen-e-Fresh
What up
How your microphone sound?
Sounds nice
All right, show me how ya get down
The day is young you say
So let us find a way
To generate, create a space
and then go romp and play
My heart is open wide
And there’s a fire inside
I use it up to burn the mist that’s foggin up your eyes
Time to free your soul
Let all heaviness go
Shed your skin and let’s begin to see beyond the mold
You’re more than what you see
And what you claim to be
Change your mind, become divine
Manifest your destiny.
Oh yeah!
Ain’t it nice when life flow like water
Oh yeah!
Man I’m grateful for every dolla
Oh yeah!
Now I know what I I been missin
Oh yeah!
All my dreams are comin’ to fruition
Track Name: My Own Little World
My own little world
I'm so lonely in my little world
If it were my own little world
There'd be some changes going on.
Track Name: Soar
I wanna soar with you as a bird
In the suns golden light of truth
Guided by the winds of love
On humble wings like angels do.

Awaken with the morning birds
A new dawn is upon this earth
Await your spiritual rebirth
Miracles are hard at work
Healing for the ones that hurt
Answers for the ones who search
A fountain waits for those who thirst
A new dawn is upon this earth

I wanna soar
Cut these chains and set me free
Into the song
Of life
Played upon
These strings that intertwine
Us together as one – to the most high

Awaken with the morning birds
A new dawn is upon this earth
Await your spiritual rebirth
Miracles are hard at work
Healing for the ones that hurt
Answers for the ones who search
A fountain waits for those who thirst
A new dawn is upon this earth
Stillness for the minds that race
Closure for the hearts that ache
A light for those who’ve lost their way
A new dawn is upon this place

I wanna soar….

Hallelujah…..
Track Name: Hearts Desire
There's a Time, There's a Place...

In my hand I hold a rose,
It's beauty overflows onto the floor
Who is it for?
This kind of love
It's much greater than all the stars above
And all below
And now, I know at last
The future's come to pass
And in this moment it seems
I have awaken from my dream, my dream

I see you standing there
With your long brown hair
your gentle smile
I see your hearts desire
I feel your sacred love
I feel it raise me up
So go on and lift me high
And fulfill my hearts desire

Ill be singing, wooooooo wooooo oh hoooooo....

Oh yeah

There's a time, there's a place
There's a tempo and a pace
I don't know what life will bring
yet everything is perfectly in swing
oh, in swing

I see you standing there
Your long brown curly hair
I see your dark brown eyes
Oh and they look so wise
Oh and it wont be long
till life is like a song
and I'll feel like a child
beaming with my hearts desire

And we'll be sayin

Wooooo wooooo oh hoooooo..... Oh yeah.

Yeah!

Woooooo woooooooo oh hoooooooo.... Oh yeah.
Track Name: ShaSha
Shasha

Sha sha, shooby dooby do (x11)
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Track Name: A Mask, Her Aid
She wore a mask, to hide her pain
In New Orleans, a mask, her aid
A pretty dress, some makeup on
So no one sees the joy is gone
The lights go on,
The music starts
Faint melody within her heart
The people bow,
they wave their hands
This dance of life
Has just began.


A Mask, her aid
helps her believe
this dance is where she’s meant to be.
She won’t attempt
to gaze beneath.
To find the soul concealed by grief.


Small shell on an early shore
A bauble now who’s lost it’s core
Soft waves heard in it’s empty halls
A ghost of what has been before
Her cry is lost within the sound
Movement’s where the peace is found.
She spins around
and there she finds
Another mask
to hide behind.


A Mask, her aid
helps her believe
this dance is where she’s meant to be.
She won’t attempt
to gaze beneath.
To find the soul concealed by grief.


A Mask, her aid
helps her believe
this dance is where she’s meant to be.
She won’t attempt
to gaze beneath.
To find the soul concealed by grief.
Track Name: Rose Horses
Ya heard a voice, inside your head
Saying your love has come, the night we met

Rose Horses in the Northern Sky
Strange forces in both our live
Brought us together

You were shining like the sun
OH
My beating heart had become numb

Rose Horses in the Northern Sky
Strange forces in both our live
Brought us together

I was the king of moodswing until I heard you sing
Your soothing song, hey, two can play at that game
And the pain was gone
The famous song that came along at that moment of time
To find a mind that complimented mine, my oh my what divine design
Grab a mic, shine a light
you were like the dawn in the dead of the night
I was headed for the light but it was never so bright
It never felt so right
Yes, a new day had arrived man
The groove was in the pocket, I was feelin the vibe
Feeling the tides turn the doors openin' wide
That's when the forces that be brought you and I together!
Track Name: Embers of Your Love
Will you teach me how to be a child once again?
It’s easy all you do is look within
When I look within I see a fire inside, and it’s burning up my innocent desire.
Jump in the fire and purify your soul. It’s only then that you will become whole.

It’s time like these. Makes you question all the pieces of
The embers of your love

Remember your heart’s desire,
when you jump into that fire.

I want the kind of love the sun has for the moon.
The reflection of yourself is coming soon.
Yet every night the darkness clouds my mind, and in the shadows of this earth it’s hard to find.
The kind of love you seek’s not far away. It’s behind the veil that shields the light of day.

It’s time like these. Makes you question all the pieces of
The embers of your love

Remember your heart’s desire,
when you jump into that fire…
Track Name: It's Then You'll Know
There’s a light goin on in the park, in the park
And in the city they still walkin in dark, in the dark
And it’s free – what we believe.
The angels there are playin their harps, oh the harp
And the devil’s waiting there in the dark, yes the dark
Just to see – what you choose to be.

So when the light goes on it’s then you’ll know
That it won’t be long
Woahoa, woahoa oooooooo
It’s then you’ll know!

The new ideas they’re waiting to spark
Light the spark
And the puppets they still playing their parts, yeah their parts
in the sceme of this crazy dream.
Oh and the wise have woken up in their hearts, yes their hearts
And most people they still living apart woa apart
From the sea, of unity!

So when the light goes on it’s then you’ll know
That it won’t be long
Woahoa, woahoa oooooooo
It’s then you’ll know!

The new ideas they’re waiting to spark
Light the spark
And the puppets they still playing their parts, yeah their parts
in the sceme of this crazy dream.
Oh and the wise have woken up in their hearts, yes their hearts
And most people they still living apart woa apart
From the sea, of unity!

So when the light goes on it’s then you’ll know
That it won’t be long
Woahoa, woahoa oooooooo
It’s then you’ll know!

Woooooooo… time to let go

Time to let go!
Track Name: Take Control
(Chorus):
Lord, Take Control, make a choice before you take your soul
Make sure it's gonna make you whole
Use your heart or your mind is gonna take its toll...
Your mind is gonna take its toll...

Soon as I bless the mike, the world tunes in
The frequency is loud and clear
depending on what world you're in
The sound is surround, it's not loose or thin
And I ain't just another rapper talkin' about juice and gin
I ain't here for the fame, or to make a name for myself
Or to see my multiplatinum sellin' CD on the shelf
You can see for yourself, the blind are leading the blind
Instead of freeing themselves from the chains that bind
I use a new thread, everytime I lace the rhyme
And I'm not confined, I color outside the lines of space and time
And the day is mine
Beat is breathless, rhymes infectious, ya know
The world at large, never expected this.

(Chorus):
Lord, Take Control, make a choice before you take your soul
Make sure it's gonna make you whole
Use your heart or your mind is gonna take its toll...
Your mind is gonna take its toll...

All this,
Is limitless and lawless
The flow of life is flawless
Whatever name you call it
Harnessing relentless energy
That's endless
And it's, it's just beginning,
I'm just beginning to sense it's
Intensity, intrinsically
It's life-giving, enlightening
Jen-e-fresh, get on the mic and sing.

(Chorus):
Lord, Take Control, make a choice before you take your soul
Make sure it's gonna make you whole
Use your heart or your mind is gonna take its toll...
Your mind is gonna take its toll...
Track Name: De Light
Bring unification all across the nations
Woah, what we're doin ain't right
Stop the indignation,
Cease the complications
of a world that won't stop the fight!

Oh the world has always been this way,
(Well, that's what people say)
Someone's gotta make the first move
They say that we should go within
Oh how do we begin?
No one's shown us what to do.

All of the contenders
Have their own agendas
No one's working for the whole
All this separation,
Lack communication
They're not speaking from their souls
So, who is gonna lead the way,
into a brighter day?
Which direction do we turn?
The destruction of the world we're in
It keeps us worryin'
How are we ever gonna learn?

The light, de-light
woooooooah
De light, de light
Delight delight.....

Live in delight
Start givin delight

But the world has always been this way,
(Well, that's what people say)
Someone's gotta make the first move
They say that we should go within,
Oh how do we begin?
No one's shown us what to do...

Only YOU.
Track Name: The Gospel Song
You said goodbye you said be careful my love
The world is dangerous
Ain't nothing safe or sacred anymore
Everyone’s too strange to trust
I looked in your eyes and I called your bluff
Said it ain't the same for us
Gods not gonna let us down this time
He’s gonna lift us up

He’s gonna life us up, we’re gonna lose ourselves in his love
We’re gonna give it up, gonna give it up to the hand of God

Tried getting high, but that wasn’t enough
My soul was still asleep
So I laid myself down in the light one night
Hoping you would look down on me
Time stood still and my heart was filled
With the nectar from her cup
I knew god wasn’t gonna let me down this time
He was gonna life me up.

He’s gonna life us up, we’re gonna lose ourselves in his love
We’re gonna give it up, gonna give it up to the hand of God

Wooooah

So long Ive been forcing things to go my way
But I found some things you cant control
These things the mind cant orchestrate
Are better left up to the soul
I'm no longer a broken man
Using anger as his crutch
I ain't gonna let myself down this time
I'm gonna life myself up

He’s gonna life us up, we’re gonna lose ourselves in his love
We’re gonna give it up, gonna give it up to the hand of God
Track Name: Dylan Thomas
Out, out. I’‘m going outta my mind
Leave the past behind
The time is now, now
The day is mine
Feel the sunshine
Into the shadows of my life.
Like a sacred knife
Cutting through the webs
There ain’t no freedom without the fight
Don’t go gently into the night
Someone once said.
Doubt, doubt
I don’t need ya no more.
It’s time to even the score
The time is now, now
The day is mine
Feel the sunshine
Into the shadows of my life.
Like a sacred knife
Cutting through the webs
There ain’t no freedom without the fight
Don’t go gently into the night
Someone once said.
Track Name: Understanding
What is this feeling inside me?
The one I just can't ignore.
This pain inside is just cryin', yeah, yeah.
Oh will love open the door to some

Understanding, a peaceful ending
My heart and soul they implore
This empty feeling that keeps appearing
I just can't take anymore

There's part of me that is dying
Another's taking the floor
It's last breath I'm denying, yeah, yeah
Till I surrender it all to some

Understanding that's never-ending
My heart and soul they explore
And keep me searchin' for my truth I'm certain
Of what I'll find at my core.

No more no more no more x 4
Open the door the door x 2
Oh lord oh lord oh lord x 2

... Oh will love open the door to some

Understanding that's never-ending
My heart and soul they explore
And keep me searchin' for my truth I'm certain
Of what I'll find at my core.
Track Name: Blue Moon
In my heart
It’s clear as day
Still there must be a simpler way
To share the feelings in my soul…. so

To capture these emotions
I watch for them to bloom
Like a flower which opens
Once in a blue moon

Honey I love you x3

And I will love thee forever
Eternity’s too soon
For the love we share together
Comes once in a blue moon

Honey I love you x3

I know that it’s easy
To open these old wounds
But you can heal them completely
Once in a blue moon

Honey I love you x3
Track Name: WooHoo
Woohoo – Yeah, yeah x6

Woohoo – Yeah, yeah! x 6
