Track Name: Paper
PAPER


Paper thin
Paper cut
Paper torn
Edges worn

What is left after all


paper hat
Ribbon hair
paper thrown
without a care

What is piled up and lost

Paper tiger
Just some pulp
pulp and fiber
Papered over

What is done is done

Now unfolding
Paper bag
Origami
Swan in hand

What is found here with you
Track Name: Green Skin
GREEN SKIN

VERSE 1:
We pull
green skin
over us
to fit in

We played
the games
suppress
the pain

I’ve had enough!

CHORUS:
Someone lied
we survived
Now we know we can go on
yeah we didn’t know
We are worthy

VERSE 2:
we Deny
our selves
When we try

Conforming
to their lies

you don’t like that i can see it
you know that I can feel it
you can find a way
you can find a way to go

Would you kiss me?
I am enough
Would you kiss me?

Chorus 2:
I want to see you smile
You can’t feel it
You don’t believe it
Here we go again
now
I want to share the light

We finally
We believe it
Follow
your own dream
when I call you
when I call you

Track Name: Brave Open Love 2017
BRAVE OPEN LOVE
words & music by Daniel Mandel

(It’s a) Brave Open Love
That breaks through the sadness
Like enlightened madness

Separated from a dream of love
Even though we share that dream
Underneath the stars
Patterns of bright constellations

Can you see that they’re changing?
Push them down and out of sight
Push them down unanswered prayers
Pushing down on stars

This is different from a dream of love
This is a careful warning
this is grief transforming
This is a healing transformation

This is a nourishing sensation
Open up into the light
Open up to hear the prayers
We are guided by stars
