Belong as I to life song of saints forgotten in short breath escaping in fear to create small rooms tight spaces locked doors generation as we struggle to belong as time feels shortened by the second we left Now One is how I measure the sunrise One is how I measure the love in your I/eye As you to mine I belong when I see All in reflectshine in relfectshine in reflectshine in reflect shine I belong I Be Long The stars smile as we combine like clouds of rain’s potential release the tears of ancestors gathering to pour out. From the long journey we be the tired footsteps of infinity looking to belong in souls of stretched up divinity in souls of stretched up divinity One is how I measure the sunrise One is how I measure the love in your I/eye As I belong when I see all in reflectshine in reflection in reflectshine in reflection in reflectshine alexschein©2006

It’s time for the woman to rise up It’s time for the man to make a stand It’s time for the child to realize It’s all in our hands It’s time if you know what’s right It’s time if you feel it inside It’s time Let it go and let your Love Rise up Rise UP Rise up in the new born sun in the East meets West we rise on the ocean rip tides flip lies inside out we’ve got to make a stand two legs two feet too much blood on my hands to sleep I wake up in the middle of a dark night Wake up and realize that it’s time It’s time for the woman to rise up It’s time for the man to make a stand It’s time for the child to realize It’s all in our hands It’s time if you know what’s right It’s time if you feel it inside It’s time Let it go and let your Love Rise up Rise UP I rise with every verse searchin’ the Earth’s eyes surmise every life enlightened I’m speaking to the ones with their head above the plight tryin’ to do what’s right and stay True while you manifest the Knowledge for the seeds you know or seeds you grew who knew change don’t come to those who wait seize the moment in the struggle and the battle of late knowin’ most good souls within demonstrate sin searching for redemption asking who the enemy is? as we blend the ingredients from every experience lift pass the glass and surpass the illusion shatter misconceptions and change the conclusion gain a clearer view amidst the mass confusion I rise to meet my heart, love I know we worlds apart scarred from bars and stained with pain insane never underestimate a man in chains with the mental capacity to rise beyond a casualty skin deep being a minor formality clarity in knowing this isn’t the last chance never taking for granted each and every glance in a trance I rise beyond circumstance so each and every one of us under the Sun search the Earth’s eyes Rise to become One It’s time for the woman to rise up It’s time for the man to make a stand It’s time for the child to realize It’s all in our hands It’s time if you know what’s right It’s time if you feel it inside It’s time Let it go and let your Love Rise up Rise Up alexschein©2006

Florescent turned off its illusion and I dilated in confusion to find a new light source the true Life Force the One the sun beam reflection as a new moon dream I fell inside the falling stars of spiral the pathway though oblivion bleeds backwards red to blue thought you knew that true color dawns out of darkness thought you knew that true color dawns out of darkness as I adjust to evolve the pain of revolution will be released as I revolve Pain of revolution released as I revolve Pain of revolution released as I revolve as I revolve into One rhythm One life One world Unite In Love we find We move At the speed of light We move At the speed of light And so I dig for the root while you pull at the leaves searching for a truth that can set you free from the mind spell from the time well I took too much waiting and now I feel myself fading into a night caving in as I might collapse from the stress of breath caught in the thought of fear trapped as I follow tears out of chest. Rising on the tide of emotion I surf the Seven Sonic Seas into an ocean and swell from its depth as I be the symphony of electric energy and the only catastrophe would be to hold on tight and watch your levee break from the weight of too much light too much light too much light too much, as it’s One rhythm One life One world Unite In Love we find We move At the speed of light We move At the speed of... alexschein©2006

Never going to quit until I climb inside the mind of the maker thank Her for the ride as I break down lay down in the heart as I start to find that the thing called love is a kiss so bliss that the Earth can’t miss a day of sunshine I ride the rhythm of system called solar polar so hard as I rip the vision of a nation frustration he waits with his eyes closed he chose the mission of a sky talker my daughter water is the fall of Man as he stands alone he will break down with his head in his hands with his heart he has bled the pain as an ache for the Maker Thank you for the ride but I just can’t take another day without your sunshine… My addiction to rhythm is always the same as the friction of fire is always a flame as division desires to know its name as the One unites and light is made. alexschein©2006

This will knot be poetry this will knot be This will knot the senses blow up fences and brick wall lines like time does not exist within this reality must persist relative only as cell expansion begins and now we are sinking in paths to ponder Eyes of the Beholder well eyes behold her keeping pace with changing crops of fading forms these days are for your destruction As the negation of self is the inflation of wealth the phases of moon melt the praises that tell balloon minds they can walk blind on a tight rope when a slight slope is still decline so Close your eyes cause I can’t close mine wish I may wish I might wish the light would snuff the night reverse the curse of society rehearsed as I search like variety for more and it’s more war more sex more collects than releases so we tease ourselves with stories of democracy but if the past dictates the future then we are all slaves to hypocrisy living in a land of stop lights and switches do-knotted contradictions which create di(e)visions we dangle our feet off their fences speaking twisted tongues of past tenses Once upon a time I can rhyme the story line into a repeating circle that skips until you spin the recorded pages of your history scratch out the speaker cause I need a healer as the music of the DJ is the same as the shaman guide us closer to the nuclei and we will fly like Feather Falcons the Dragon claws for fire while we beat higher we beat higher we beat higher We beat higher into seeing that’s why the first person of being is named “I” well its eyes to remember I still remember sitting in the house of freedom under the ceiling you call it the sky and I call it my mind and I can dream the clouds into a weather or knot and tie mine with the Sun as our time has come And come the ancient spells of my Mother come the ancient spells of my Mother drip heaven into my cup empty cause empty is always enough always enough to fill me UP. alexschein©2006

Wait one second as I feel the Drop to your beat keeps rockin’ won’t stop till I see the end of your reign is falling I know Babylon keeps calling your name but wait one second as I feel the Drop to your beat keeps rockin’ won’t stop till I see the end of your reign is falling I know Babylon keeps calling your name but Wait Hold on have faith In Love comes change As tears melt your pain So will be the day When their reign Comes tumbling down so wait one second as I feel the Drop to your beat keeps rockin’ won’t stop till I see the end of your reign is falling I know Babylon keeps calling your name keeps calling your name but I keep moving to the street I keep moving to the beat I keep moving to the time I keep moving with the rhyme I keep connecting lines as they bend I’ll send a message through the rhythm of a system I know they could never find me within your heart aligned see within and memorize these words we keep repeating in the melody I’m breathing in the sound I found I’m feeling as my eyes climb the ceiling as they close doze back No, I won’t slack so… as I feel the drop to your beat keeps rockin’ won’t stop till I see the end of your reign is falling I know Babylon keeps calling your name but wait one second as I feel the Drop to your beat keeps rockin’ won’t stop till I see the end of your reign is falling I know Babylon keeps calling your name but Wait Hold on have faith In Love comes change As tears melt your pain So will be the day When their reign Comes tumbling down Their reign comes tumbling down Their reign comes tumbling down alexschein©2006

Don’t you worry about the time Don’t you hurry as we try to push the river but you die cause I’m always here on your side I’m always here We speak in speech reside in mind And what said do you make true? Why hold truth better than children? Fight back supple minds Break backs This is a station break beat counter attack A liquor store hold-up of soul out cash in But still I breath out look up stream I see seams breaking weakening busting at the gut the old model failing this is what owning what cannot be owned smells like look right / same fight T.V last night same play / same stage same skeet / new week change channels / same creeps figure heads embedded in the same News Speak But what game are you playing? And with what evil are you laying? Cause baby don’t you worry about the time don’t you hurry as we try to push the river and you die but I’m always here on your side I’m always here on your side open your eyes I am the sword they are the noose letting you dangle as I cut you loose from the time as we rewind counterclockwise I am the sword they are the noose I am the sword they are the noose electric chess the levee is loose the president pupated by a Dick in a suit. We must speak and read know history Counter Clockwise Culture Masters of subtlety see when we say SLEEP now y’all are the sheep internet your neck and Google™ your teeth and all I’m saying is this gold is fools just like first they called them Race Records then Rhythm and Blues know the game study the rules don’t push the river let the river come to you cause baby don’t you worry about the time don’t you hurry as we try to push the river and you die but I’m always here on your side I’m always here on your side We’re on your side alexschein©2006

I was fourteen when prophecy came to me in a waterfall, the love of my father was all that I ever wanted and so haunted by his ghost I made the most of my days trying to live up but it seems nothing is good enough for a god or at least I thought projections of how I ought to be and so caught me a case of expectation self-generated frustration as I sat the bench sat the pew dribbled till I grew tall enough to see into my father’s eyes well son look inside and realize it’s my own two it’s my own two it’s my own two eyes one is you one is I one is truth and one is lie so decide so deside so we decide And in those days I was divided between church and state tournament dreams fell to a knee twisted and torn a dream died and born and out of the ashes came the music I heard Her calling in the music and so I choose it everyday to carry this pain as I strain to see it’s my own two it’s my own two it’s my own two eyes one is truth one is lie one is you one is I so deside so decide I will decide And with my choice I’ll choose my voice to sing for Love to sing for Love to sing for Love to sing for Love. Music’s how I get high Music’s how I get high Music’s how I get high Music’s how I get high Music’s how I get by Music’s how we get by Music’s how we get by alexschein©2006

I keep trying to let it go but the mind won’t let me know how to release from the pain how to put down the weight of the world on my shoulders this War won’t be over till I die till I decide And I keep seeing a vision of all the people in tune to Love let our Voice be the rhythm of our heart solar system let your fist open up let it climb to the sky as we wave our goodbye You throw up your white flag surrender your name tag it’s not you but the love of One that’s coming through your pain all your hope and faith i and I all your hope and pain i and I And I keep trying to let it go but the mind won’t let me know how to release from the pain how to put down the weight of the world on our shoulders this War won’t be over till we decide till we decide You throw up your white flag surrender your name tag it’s not you but the love of One that’s coming through your pain all your hope and faith i and I all your hope and faith is Life all your hope and faith is Light all your hope and faith i and I And I keep seeing a vision of all the people in tune to Love let your Voice be the rhythm of your heart solar system let your fist open up open up open up open up open UP alexschein©2006
