The Light 06:22
The Light ..................... by John Demarkis Children of the light...Children of the light The earth, the moon, the sun and the stars With their eyes to the sky this vision of space Set to conquer the moon the sun and the stars Moving forth they realized a better way Coming out of the dark they stepped into light Children of the light...Children of the light So much knowledge of life from the ancient we know Even more of our true past has been lost Moving forth we strive for a better way From out of the dark we'll step into light Children of the light...Children of the light Secrets never told The true origin of life And it's your decision about God and religion And where your faith comes in In the life you're living Look for the light...look for the light...look for the light And it's your perception about truth and deception And where your heart weighs in And you make the connection Look for the light... Look for the light Children of the light... Children of the light

No Return 10:08
No Return ....................... by John Demarkis Are we there At the point of no return Do we stand at the point of no return If we could fly we'd soon be gone If we could fly we'd be home If we could fly The point of no return...the point of no return Miles away from anywhere Once we cross the Rubicon No way back from where we came Chart the course we're moving on Chart the course we're moving on Survival being the only reason Chart the path we're moving on There is no other way The point of no return...the point of no return Everything we've left behind Burns inside our hearts and minds Chart the course we're moving on There is no other way...no other way The point of no return...the point of no return And in the moment that you realize You take a look on the other side And where it was you thought you had to go Was in another life Another moment in another time When we were safe on the other side We carry on to another day from the point of no return Miles of space and stars between us Light years from Earth and Venus After the point of no return No return Does anybody hear us calling out Is anybody there We're reaching out Is anybody listening Is anybody there Does anybody hear us out there....out there To never see your home again Just to kiss the ones you love And feel the sun in your eyes The point of no return... the point of no return The point of no return home...home... back home Home......

3 You Will See ..........................by John Demarkis Slow down my sweet child You've still got so far to go There's no need to hurry There's no need to worry Just remember time is always passing by Slow down my sweet sweet child There's such a long long long way to go There's no need to hurry There's no need to worry Just remember that time flies by When you're older you will see So don't waste any time like me

5 Perfect World ............... by John Demarkis I dream of a world where we care for each other I dream of a world over flowing with love A world where we live together A world full of hope And people living, sharing, giving In a perfect world In a perfect world Could that world exist Does that world exist Watching the news gives me the blues Waiting for the fighting to cease They throw race in my face When all I'm hoping for is some peace In a perfect world In a perfect world Yes we can have it all .....We can have it all now Yes we can have it all.......Reeking havoc all now Yes we can have it all if we really want it In a perfect world In a perfect world I thought that we would be free of the chains And hoped by now we'd had made greater gains I dream of a world over flowing with love We can have it all Yes we can have it all In a perfect world

All My Life 05:09
8 All My Life ..................... by John Demarkis All my life I've tried to be the best man I can be Keep honest to my soul All my life I've walked the line Accepted any blame that I could not deny All my life I've been hoping for, And I've been looking for what I can't seem to find Will it ever end Will it ever end my friend In our lives we've seen the crime Victims of the wars and cruelty of the world Politicians like to talk but they don't walk the walk And NOTHING seems to change Nothing seems to change...nothing seems to change Will it ever end Will it ever end my friend All my life I've tried to be the best man I can be Keep honest to my soul

7 Blood In the Sand ...................... by John Demarkis Our hands in Iraq Our hands in Iran Too many souls left their blood in the sand Some wounds never heal with time Some wounds never heal with time Passed along through family lines Some wounds never heal with time I read in the paper today A building was blown away Not a soul got to choose.... If you missed it it's on the news Now people have taken sides Looking for reasons to fight With no end in sight.....hmmmn. Oh my Lord Oh my lord Oh my lord Oh my Lord . . . . . . Religion on the left Religion on the right Government in the middle Nobody's right No one's to blame
