1. When The Time Is Right

© 2003

(Mark Francis)

 

In these changing times

Of uncertainties

When nothing is clear cut and dried

There’s an element of doubt

In every truth you feel inside

There’s nowhere left to turn

There’s so much more to learn

 

When the time is right

We will see the light

It will suddenly all become clear

It will burn so bright

In the starry night

The way we should go will appear

I will take you there

Where we both can share

In everything as it should be

You can take my hand we will understand

Our place in the whole mystery

 

In the shifting sands of adversity

We’re fighting against the tide

The circumstances change

 With every rolling wave you ride

We’re fighting for our lives

As only hope survives

 

When the time is right

We will see the light

It will suddenly all become clear

It will burn so bright

In the starry night

The way we should go will appear

I will take you there

Where we both can share

In everything as it should be

You can take my hand we will understand

Our place in the whole mystery

 

As wings take flight

We’ll soon be out of sight

Looking for a reason to believe

What will the answer be

We’ll have to wait and see

What is our mission to achieve

 

When the time is right

We will see the light

It will suddenly all become clear

It will burn so bright

In the starry night

The way we should go will appear

I will take you there

Where we both can share

In everything as it should be

You can take my hand

We will understand

Our place in the whole mystery

When The Time Is Right

 

 

2. Mr. Mercurious

© 2004

(Robin Runciman & Martin Cockerham)

 

Came upon the dawn

To dazzle the sun

He was never born, like everyone

The moon was his friend, not guile

Flamboyant in mood, yet humble in style

He would always give you an ocean for  smile

 

Mr Mercurious won't you just stay for while

 

Answers to questions

How will we ever know

Mr Mercurious, tell me that it's so

We are all souls

Who should be with you

Dancing with foals

Not hiding in holes

Spun the universe upon his nose

 

Mr Mercurious, show us way that it goes

 

He placed the scent within the flower

Gave honey to the bee to build his tower

The caterpillar he gave wings to set him free

He made arrangements for a tadpole to swim

But he couldn't jump

How can a tree be in an acorn

And an egg become a swan?

 

Hey Mr Mercurious show us the way to the sun

 

He gave the power to the bull to plow the field

The cow the love, her milk to yield

Supplied the streams, with tears from his dreams

And mountain springs with fountains and steams

To all come back home down to the salty seas

Which he carried aloft on a cloud

Airlifted to freeze

To store for all until their hour of needs

 

Hey Mr Mercurious you're the one who knows how to please

Hey Mr Mercurious help us to flow in your peace

 

 

3. Your Star Will Shine

© 2004

(Mark Francis & Martin Cockerham)

 

Dust flies across your shadow

Wind blows all along the hollow

It seems that nothing can stop us now

 

Where will we be tomorrow

In a land, devoid of sorrow

And you must try

You’re meant for the sky

And you can fly so high

 

Please don’t hide cause you can find

Strength to rise above the tide

I know you’ll reach the other side

You’re star will shine

 

Its been a pitter pill to swallow

Where you lead we must follow

But time is a healer and faith is alive

So you, won’t be denied

 

Your star it will light our way

Seen by wise men all the day

It’s a sun that never fades away

You’re star will shine

 

And nows the time to put an end to sorrow

Till the earth and farm the furrow

There is no motion

Cause times standing still

And so you will, you will

 

You’re my star sign, so enshrined

Sacrifice no more declined

Entwined in everything refined

Your Star Will Shine

 

 

4. Revolution Solution

© 2004

(Robin Runciman & Martin Cockerham)

 

Gonna Talk about a revolution, it's not a violent kind

Solution, no pollution, purify your mind

If I talk about a monarchy, It's of the purest kind

Sanity not anarchy, humanity aligned

Don't be depressed, the world's in a mess

You can't expect to get respect

It's in your soul, Your higher goal

 

Look what you done, you took this earth

And made her really hurt

That’s a thing that no one does

Except a total jerk

Political correctness needs correcting

the next generation need protecting

Men in power they need ejecting

Are there any men worth electing?

 

The outer world it may look slick

Bbut that's just for a lunatic

Come with the troubadour,

Out in the cold to sing

 

Cause all you've got is your heart of gold

Whether you're young or if you're old

That's the one that, you never sold

Just let your heart loosen up your soul

How can you feel safe in a crown of Horns

 

Fry your brains on a mobile phone

Fly on planes, get away from your home

Philosophy’s flown, hypocrisy’s won

The fools have grown, the ravens come

In daily life there’s no more fun

 Celebrities live, the rest all run

 

The outer world it may look slick

But that's just for a lunatic

Come with the troubadour, out in the cold

Cause all you've got is your heart of gold

Whether you're hot, or icy cold

Cause all you've got is your heart of gold

Whether you're young or if you're old

And all you've got is your priceless soul

 

Oh my little child, are you sleeping, Upon the winds of wild?

Oh my little boy, are you dreaming, Tonight the winds are wild

Oh my pretty boy are you sleeping , Upon the streets of wild

Oh my pretty boy are you sleeping, Sur Le Pont Du Roi

 

 

 

5. Tolling Bell

(Mark Francis)

 

Bells are tolling through the night

Time is rolling out of sight

Wait until the morning clear

For the new day to appear

Tolling Bell, Tolling Bell

 

Ring The Changes

Ring the changes loud and clear

Ring The Changes far and near

Ring the changes ring them true

Clear the way all hope renew

 

Fires are burning all around

Flames churn and scorch the ground

Looking for a better way

Live to fight another day

Tolling Bell, Tolling Bell

 

Ring The Changes

Ring the changes loud and clear

Ring the changes far and near

Ring the changes ring them true

Ring out the old ring in the new

 

Ring the Changes

Ring the changes hear and now

Ring the changes All around

Ring the Changes

Ring the changes ring them true

Ring out the old ring in the new

Ring the Changes

 

 

6. Call Sign

© 2005

(Mark Francis & Martin Cockerham)

 

And in the dream time

Choke plenty fools

Have run away with the money

And raped all the honey

And in the mean time

Billions of pounds

are made each day

By a few, we hardly knew

 

One day, there came

A sound from the sky

 

Call Sign

That’s a new kind of cosmic wine

Kept in barrels from the start of time

Cures the mind and ripened on the vine

Quite obscure, yet so fine

 

So I found myself back on the road

To San Francisco, and its streets of gold

And I found myself back with a load

Heading to London and its street of old

 

One day, there came

A sound from a guy

 

Call Sign

Take your side of that line divine

Waited out till the stars aligned

Overture from a power benign

Brought us home just in time

 

I’ve waited a long time for love

To come and take me home to the Sea of Who

And in the dream time choke plenty fools

Have run away with the money

Or raped all the honey

 

May find, the way

To get back there some day

 

Call Sign

Like it was in the days of old

When the men were not all controlled

Just for money, their souls all sold

 

Waiting for the call sign

Waiting for the call sign

Call Sign

 

 

7. Queen of Trees

© 2005

(Mark Francis & Martin Cockerham)

 

On autumn days like these

It seems that all the seals are leaving

And the night is coming down the garden path

I could grow on cold nights like these

That precious love of the Lord

 

And I made it to the top

Where I could feel a lot

Like the angles and the saints in bliss

Cause they’re in love

And love it is

He’s in love with His

Love for the Queen of this Tree

 

Maybe its something I lost

Cause there was nothing came between us yes

Anyway the cost was high

She’s burning in love eternally

 

Carrying the soul of me

To a place to be

Can you come back to this town

And sing a song

Don’t let me down

Out of this place of grief

And back to the source of relief

 

Little place that I have seen

When I was standing on a mountain

Looking at the scenes that some

Precious believers helped me see for free

 

To the people all around

To move the mountain soul

And leave this world

Just a little place undone

A lonely one

The dreamlands won

In love with the Queen of Love

In love with the Queen of this Tree

 

 

8. Wings Of Steel

© 2003

(Martin Cockerham)

 

Storm clouds have gathered on survivors of the ghost

But they all looked bewildered waiting for a can of most

Out in the distance I could hear the karma call

But nobody had noticed, anyway they knew it all

 

Carry me back, back to the start

Now I still remember I had a part

Carry me back, on wings of steel

Back to the country where I can feel

 

And hedgerows leading over to pastures green and mild

Where I as a child got the blessings of the wild

And I wouldn’t need computers to run my city street

We’d all go by in a horse and cart and stop and have us seat

 

Carry me back, back to the start

Now I still remember, I had an ark

Carry me back on wings of steel

Back to my country where I can feel

 

Cause we’re running out of worlds

Aint got another one like this to ruin

Better take it back now

If you wanna give it toYour

Little child and her children’s children

Cause we’re running out of lies

We’re running out of England

Oh we scored some tries

Maybe we got wives

 

Bright in the morning I could hear the shining stalk

Of a thousand honest workers that never had a spark

All through the ages the wisdom it came down

But even those who knew it had a hard time coming round

 

Carry me back, back to the start

Now I still remember I had an ark

Carry me back, on wings of steel

Back to my country where I can feel

 

We’d go to a forest, carry my people to a garden

I’d get a mistress with a tassel, a vassal with a castle

You can’t mess with the king of no hassle

We’d live in a place, cystal glass, marble walls and Alice

Wonderland it is at hand

Wonderland, I do command

 

 

9. I Can Do

© 2004

(Mark Francis & Martin Cockerham)

 

As evenings descending

This full moon he’ll take flight

So restless, relentless

He’ll never cease the fight

Though you may not know it

He’s the one that makes stars bright

No more we’ll stay in leaves of night

 

You want to, I Can Do

Even if we only try

Forever, we’ll never

See our rivers run dry

We’ll live in the garden

We will find our place in time

We’ll find our space in perfect rhyme

We’re going to come through

I’ll do whatever I Can Do

 

Whenever you falter

I’ll be your Gibralter

Your choir supplier

You will find no lies inspire

 

You want to, I Can Do

Even if we only try

We’re helpless, defenseless

A new born babies cry

Together forever

We will try to re-unite

Searching for the perfect light

I’m going to help you

I’ll do whatever I Can Do

 

Whenever you falter

I’ll be your Gibraltar

Your choir supplier

You will find no lies inspire

 

Please hold me so closely

Deep in the darkest night

You told me I should be

Your long lost love’s delight

So we’ll be together

There will be no room for pride

We shall never be denied

I’m going to help you

I’ll do whatever I Can Do

Together forever

We will, try to re-unite

Searching for the perfect light

And we’re going to come through

I’ll do whatever I can Do

 

 

 

10. Dyin’ of Freedom

© 2002

(Martin Cockerham)

 

 

In the heart of madness,

talk about the gladness

I'm a true, true believer,

talk about the weaver of this, heart sadness

talk about the madness, edge of night

Too many cheaters, but not enough true leaders

Too many tankers, too many trucks, not enough bull coxians

Too many devastations, not enough good creations

Too much speculation, not enough confirmation

 

Dyin of

I'm dyin of

I'm dyin of Freedom

 

Too much indignation

But not enough appreciation

only factories

but not enough fruit trees

Too much fashion

Not enough compassion

Too much desecration

Not enough vegetation

 

Dyin of

I'm dyin of

I'm dyin of Freedom

 

Come on down

You'll hear the sound

Of Dyin of Freedom going on all around

 

Too much pleasure

Not enough measure

Too Many curses

Not enough verses

Too many missionaries

not enough visionaries

Too many asylum seekers

not enough homelands

 

Dyin of

I'm dyin of

I'm dyin of Freedom

 

Come on down

You'll hear the sound

Of dying of Freedom going on all around!

 

 

11. Beautiful One

© 2003

(Martin Cockerham)

 

Must be a way get back home

Back to you, back to

The children of the throne

We are dear to the known

Walk away, just leave the fools to play

They’ve been sitting in their chairs

Watching the world somewhere’s else

 

There must be a way

Get back home to, back to you

Back to the new, who feel so from you

To the children so true

Taken away the love from the day

But hey I’m here to put it back and play

 

Beautiful One

Try to get free, free from the screw

Try to believe that its in you

Who is the star, who is the Eve

Who is conceived in the youth hour

And who has vanquished the sour

 

must be a way to get back home, back to you,

must be a hope, away from the dope,

back to the scope, let’s elope

Let’s walk away and leave the fools to play

They’ve been sitting in their chairs

Watching the squares on TV sceens

 

Beautiful One

You have a world, its in a girl

She should be heard

No time and space can keep us apart

No lack of place can cancel your heart

 

All the people fallen from their grace

Fallen in disgrace

Far from the love that they’d expected

Caught in a hole and so dejected

 

Try to be strong you will go on

After the song’s been done and sung

After the Sun cleaned everyone

After the air made us aware

After the choir kindled the fire

After the song’s been done and sung

 

 

 

12. Put Out That Fire

© 2005

(Martin Cockerham)

 

 

Put Out That Fire

Take me higher

Burning in flames

it's a quagmire

Caught on names

fame, I tire

Take me home

to the eternal shire

mera murli mano hara nanda lala

 

Your love lasts forever

never never never can die

this world's disguise, revealed as lies

leaves you dry, I wonder why

 

Put out the flames

that burn in the heart

Of all those souls

who live apart

 

Put out that fire

take me higher

higher and higher

town crier

I've been away

I've been in desire

caught in a play

been a buyer

My entire

I've been in dire

 

Your love lasts forever

never never never can die

this world's disguise, revealed as lies

leaves you dry, I wonder why

 

Put out the flames

That burn in the names

Of all those stars

Who live in chains

 

Govinda Govinda Gopala
