about

GOD is in even the smallest detail of our lives. This album is about a journey that could be the story of anyone. We all have trials, questions and then moments of clarity...All of our life experiences can lead us back to the one place we all come from. In the end it is our choices that determine our outcome. For me the only choice is, What else?...LOVE : )

Track Name: Endless Synapses
ENDLESS SYNAPSES
By Mychael John Thomas

Every night I go to bed
Thoughts are racing in my head
But the more I try to let ‘em be
Only sends a melody
Can’t leave nothing left unsaid

Every time I think I’m done
Something really turns me on
Then my brain is working overtime
Looking for a perfect line
Soon I’m gonna sing that song

CHORUS
Here comes the hook…It sure feels good
Pounding out the rhythm like a Rock Guru
Won’t make a penny…Probably won’t reach many
But I got nothin’ better to do…
Than make a song for you

Pushing till I’m nearly dead
I oughta go to sleep instead
But every note is magically
Touching what we never see
Burning like a worn out tread

Every word is just sublime
Leading me to another rhyme
Flowing thru the artistry
To another music stream
For the hearing ears to find

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I suppose I should get on with a point
But I don’t know if I’ve got anything relevant to say
The spirit is willing but it all comes out
Just endless synapses pouring out on a page

SOLO

Like Picasso or Van Gogh I’m driven to express
Some illusive inner vision of my heart
The notes are my colours and music my canvas
What picture shall I paint to impart?

CHORUS
There goes a stroke…God only knows
How it’s gonna look when I’m finally through
Won’t make a penny…Probably won’t reach many
But I got nothin’ better to do…
Than make a song for you

CHORUS
Here comes the hook…It sure feels good
Pounding out the rhythm like a Rock Guru
Won’t make a penny…Probably won’t reach many
But I got nothin’ better to do…
Than make a song for you

Track Name: MAD
MAD
By Mychael John Thomas

I got up in a really bad mood
I think it’s gonna be a vicious day
Don’t feel like being good
I wanna throw my nice away
Wanna scream to top of my lungs
So the whole neighborhood will hear
I don’t really give a flying (bleep)
And I don’t want you here

CHORUS
Mad at everything, everybody
Every dam molecule on the earth
Even wanna bash my guitar through a wall
‘Cause I don’t feel like I’m worth the air that I breathe
Mad as I can be…Just MAD

Why are we cursed with all this disease?
And starving children living out on the street?
While all the fat cats are living high on the hog
And never really have to need
No compassion! No mercy! No chance
Of ever turning things around
All long as we live by the dollar
And run each other in the ground

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I know ain’t gonna help nobody
If I burn the whole system down
But maybe it’s gonna feel a whole lot better
If I open up and let it out…Because I’M MAD!!!

SOLO
How can you be angry and commit no sin?
When I feel this way I wanna bash skulls in
No Prayer No Mantra gonna make it all right
But GOD help me make it to the night

CHORUS
Mad at everything, everybody
But mostly mad at myself
‘Cause I know it’s my own damn fault
I’m living here in this Hell…I can’t believe
Mad as I can be…I can't blieve
Mad as I can be....Just MAD...MAAAAAAD

I'm mad as a hatter...I need Dr. Phil and Oprah Winfrey

Track Name: Chains Of Events
CHAIN OF EVENTS
By Mychael John Thomas

These chains of events are weighing me down
Holding me back…Spinning me ‘round
No choice…Gotta be moving on…Moving on

One thing leads to another thing
And some things you can’t understand
Overwhelmed by the weight of it all
And nothing seems part of the plan
Everything looks so random
I don’t even know how to process
I need to hear from Heaven
To help me sort through this mess

CHORUS
These chains of events are weighing me down
Holding me back…Spinning me ‘round
No choice…Gotta be moving on (I gotta be moving on)
I feel the extent of damage done
Walk in the light…Healing begun
These chains of events will soon be gone…Soon be gone

Even people that I don’t know
Blame for what I didn’t do
Maybe it’s my Karma coming around
Am I’m paying for the sins of youth
Can’t concentrate…Can’t meditate
‘Cause the Truth don’t shed any light
Why do these bad things happen to
Good people who try to do right

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Got to keep a positive attitude
Don’t get negative don’t get rude
Just keep singing about that love (just keep singing)
Walking the high road…Rising above

SOLO

CHORUS
These chains of events are weighing me down
Holding me back…Spinning me ‘round
No choice…Gotta be moving on (I gotta be moving on)
I feel the extent of damage done
Walk in the light…Healing begun
These chains of events will soon be gone

BRIDGE 2
Transcending…Hearts are mending
(I feel something)
Keep learning…Hearts are yearning
(Love is coming)
Find meaning…Hearts are leaning
(I feel something good)
Feel something…Love keeps coming

OUT CHORUS
(Chains of events) No more losing
(Chains of events) Gotta keep moving
(Chains of events) No more losing
Gotta keep moving on…

I’m gonna break free from these chains of events

Track Name: Old School
OLD SCHOOL
By Mychael John Thomas

Overloaded with too much information
Memory full of trivia I can’t use
Under control of a new Hi-Res Messiah
Emotions numb…And that I must refuse
Some higher consciousness is part of everything
We can deny it…But somebody’s gonna sing

CHORUS
Old school…Getting to the heart of it
No rules…Give me something real
Old school…Feeling every part of it
No fool…I know what I need to do

So now we’re facing life in the new millennium
But some traditions ought to remain the same
I’ve seen changes that I thought would never come
Yet a rose is a rose by any other name
Life is a dance and each one hears a different beat
We find our rhythm in the love of those we meet

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Share those stories of a generation born of peace
Use the gift to set the record straight
We were meant to live in pursuit of liberty
Don’t give in…And let it slip away

SOLO (verse)

Our time has come and we will have to make a choice
For me I follow when I hear that inner voice

CHORUS

Track Name: Love Is On Our Side
LOVE IS ON OUR SIDE
By Mychael John Thomas

I have heard that time is healing…
haven’t dreamed you in a while
And though you’re just a memory…Still it makes me smile
Even hopes and expectations…That were never realized
Are only evidence to me that love…was on our side

CHORUS
Love is absolutely on our side (Love is on our side)
Love is absolutely on our side (In every tide)
In the storms around us raging...Or the calm in the sunshine
Love is absolutely…(resolutely)…On our side

Some people call it Karma…And others call it Fate
I just call it another day…To walk in grace
And the lives I have encountered…
And encounters yet to come
I consider all as blessing of the world we’re from

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Every moment is a promise of the chance
To allow our hearts to change…To be enhanced
And when all is tried by fire
What will remain is Holy desire
To be one…With someone

SOLO

In the storms around us raging...Or the calm in the sunshine
Love is absolutely…(resolutely)…absolutely…on our side
Love is on our side…Love is on our side

Track Name: Vicious
VICIOUS
By Mychael John Thomas

I’m watching how you treat the others around you
You talk about love but you’re living a lie
Some kind of negative energy surrounds you
But now I just can’t silently stand by
Tried to reach you every way
But sometimes you just gotta say

CHORUS
You’re vicious (Don’t see no love in your heart)
You’re vicious (Don’t see no love in your heart)
Vicious…No sign of love in your heart at all

Who was it damaged you as a child?
Mommy and Daddy deserted you in your hurt
The cool kids excluded you back in high school
Now you’re trying to punish the whole world
I’m tired of taking the blame
Not me who drove you insane

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Everybody’s got their story to tell
Each one endures some private hell
People fool ya…Don’t let it rule ya
Take a chance…Come out of your shell

SOLO

I want to believe there is hope for you
But for the Grace of GOD so go I
When I look in the mirror do I see a fool?
Or somebody who’s living at peace with life
I’m gonna lay down my sword
‘Cause you can be sure

CHORUS
I don’t wanna be vicious (Can you see love in my heart)
I’m not vicious (I need some love in my heart)
Not vicious…Need love in my heart ‘cause
I don’t wanna be vicious (Can you see love in my heart)
I’m not vicious (I need some love in my heart)
Need love in my heart so that I don’t fall

I’m not vicious

Track Name: Still Breathing
STILL BREATHING
By Mychael John Thomas

I open my eyes and it’s another day
Seems there ain’t no love nowhere in this age
Then I feel that pain way down in my heart
Just holding on to my faith can be so hard
This life I have ain’t what I thought it would be
And it seems like death is closing fast on me

CHORUS
But I’m still breathing…Feeling every second
Time drags on forever waiting for Heaven?
I don’t know what tomorrow brings…But I ain’t dead yet
I’m still breathing…Maybe that’s as good as it gets

Out on the street spirits are hateful
They have no peace and live to be ungrateful
A simple smile doesn’t melt the ice
They inflict hurt while never thinking twice
My sinking soul is about to suffocate
Love is oxygen…I hope it’s not too late

CHORUS
BRIDGE
One foot in front of the other…And one step at a time
A voice inside my head says everything will be just fine
One shallow breathe is all that is standing in the way
Of me declaring this will be my dying day

SOLO

CHORUS
TAG I don’t know what tomorrow brings…But I ain’t dead yet
I’m still breathing…Maybe that’s as good as it gets…
Ha Ha Ha Ha I’m still breathing…I’m still breathing…Huh! (6 times)

Track Name: Peace By Peace
PEACE BY PEACE
By Mychael John Thomas

I know that good things are well worth the waiting for
And I’ve heard that Rome wasn’t built in a day
Well I don’t wanna be destructive any more
Can we just stop tearing us down this way?
Our life together is crumbling
We gotta fix it now or lose everything

CHORUS
We’ve got problems…But I know we can solve them
Gotta do it peace by peace love
I know you’ve got your reasons…Maybe you could leave ‘em
For a season peace by peace Love

Ain’t no excuse for all of this bickering
I see an impasse coming ahead
Our passion’s flame getting low and flickering
One burst of anger could kill it dead
Sometimes it’s more than I can take
Can we have one day without all the hate?

CHORUS
We fight but I‘d rather…See a happy ever after
We can have it peace by peace love
Instead of just escaping…We could be saving
We can make it peace by peace Love

BRIDGE
They say insanity is…
Expecting a change from the same ol’ things
Can’t help it if I believe in…
The power forgiveness brings

CHORUS
We’ve had some hard times…But we can leave it all behind
And we’ll find a peace by peace love
We could help each other…Maybe rediscover
How to build it peace by peace Love

Peace by peace Love

Track Name: Warrior Suite
WARRIOR SUITE
By Mychael John Thomas

I. STAND UP
CHORUS
(I get knocked down) I’m a warrior I (Stand up!)
(When the demons come around)
I’m a warrior I (Stand up!)
No force can overtake me…He tells me I’m Free
I have Great Strength from above
When (I get knocked down) I’m a warrior I (Stand up!)

Can you feel the breathe of life
In the earth the sea and the air?
Something holds us all together
But confusion is everywhere
You can’t imprison Knowledge
Because Faith will overcome
Questions burn within us
We find the Answers one by one

CHORUS
When (I get knocked down) I’m a Warrior I (Stand up!)
(When the demons come around)
I’m a Warrior I (Stand up!)
No force can overtake me…He tells me I’m Free
I have Great Strength from above
When I (get knocked down) I’m a Warrior I, I (Stand up!)

II. VOICE OF REASON
When the noise of worldly insanity
Is drowning out the Voice in your heart
Come back to the center where
The Words tell us of a brand new start

Feel the Peace…Find release
From the bondage of your mind
On the road it’s an endless search
But Truth is everywhere to find

CHORUS
Hear the Voice (Of reason is speaking to you)
Hear the Voice (Revealing the Truth again)
Hear the Voice (Of reason is speaking to you)
Hear the Voice (It’s leading you through again)

There’s a longing deep inside of us
To know the Words of Heaven’s song
Over time you can lose the sound
Till the true Melody is almost gone

Listen close…Soon you’ll know
And remember that forgotten tune
Look for others who feel the same
Walk the Journey we were born to choose

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Universe in Harmony…Flowing as was meant to be
Scaling Heights to find your place…Fly among the saints

SOLO

CHORUS

III. VICTIM OR VICTOR
Listen to what the Angels say
“Have no fear! He will show you the way”
How many times do I have to learn that Lesson?

The poet writes and the minstrel sings
Of a Path leading to all things
And we can know for sure instead of guessing

Put on the Armor…The war is on
The darkest hour will give up to the Dawn
And when the dust settles Love will lead us home

CHORUS
So it is until the end…
And if we persevere we will surely Win
Evil will try to lead us awry…
But when the battle begins

It all comes down to the moment of Truth
When we’re faced with either or (Either Or)
We can refuse to be a victim (Refuse to be a Victim)
And choose to be A Victor (Not a victim anymore)
I choose to be A Victor (not a victim anymore)

STAND UP (reprise)
(I get knocked down) Not a victim anymore I (Stand up!)
(When the demons come around)
Not a victim anymore I (Stand up!)
No force can overtake me…He tells me I’m Free
I have Great Strength from above (I stand up!)
I choose to be A Victor (I stand up)
I choose to be A Victor (ooh)
(When I get knocked down) I’m a Warrior I, I (Stand up!)
(When the demons come around)
I’m a Warrior I, I (Stand up!)

Track Name: Presence
PRESENCE
By Mychael John Thomas

So tell me what you really think of me
Am I still blind or can I finally see?
And if I miss the mark…I never wander far
You bring me back into your peace

I think I know enough that I can say
Everybody has to find their own way
And we can only help…Someone to find your well
Send opportunities I pray
(Hum dey hum dey hum Halo yah)

CHORUS
Every day I live You make it clear
There are so many reasons we are here
No exceptions…In Your presence
Love is the essence of all life

BRIDGE
Your Spirit touches all…Everything we are
Lift us from the fall…We have seen the star

SOLO (Hum dey hum dey hum Halo yah - 3 times)

So many trials in this life we know
But with each triumph understanding will grow
The same from age to age…The wisdom from the page
Says we won’t face the end alone
(Hum dey hum dey hum Halo yah)

CHORUS
TAG No exceptions…In Your presence
Love is the essence of all life
(Hum dey hum dey hum Halo yah - repeat)
In your presence I will sing…In your presence...no exceptions
