Track Name: The Light
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
Track Name: No Return
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......
Track Name: You Will See
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
Track Name: Hold On
4 Hold On ................................. by John Demarkis

Hold on to your dreams
Hold on, oh hold on

Some people live their lives with their eyes closed
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Some people spend their life working so hard
Getting nowhere, getting nowhere
Nowhere

Hold on... hold on... hold on

Hold on to your dreams
Hold on, oh hold on
Track Name: Perfect World
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
Track Name: All Around Us
6 All Around Us ............................... by John Demarkis

It's all around us now
It's all around us now
LOVE....It's all around us
Around us
Track Name: On and On
5 On And On ....................... by John Demarkis

Tell me everything you want
And I will do my best to make it true
Tell me everything you need
What's mine is yours
Well baby that's true
Tell me everything you want
And I will do my best to make it true
Maybe I've walked this road before
My feet are tired but I can make it through
I've been down that road before
Said I've walked that road before
I've been down that road before
The road goes on and on yeah

Why is it so hard to find
What I picture in my mind with you
It could be I'm just out of touch
Or maybe I expect too much too soon
I've been down that road before
Said I've walked that road before
I've been down that road before
The road goes on and on yeah

The road goes on and on
The road goes on and on
The road goes on and on
The road goes on and on
Track Name: All My Life
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
Track Name: Surprised
9 Surprised .......................by John Demarkis

What happened to the one I knew
The one I loved
The one who loved me too
What happened to your smiling face
Take me back to that place

Time goes bye
It really flies before your eyes you realize
Yes time goes by it really flies
It shouldn't leave you surprised

What happened to my good old friend
And all that time we used to spend together
We must have been high
I thought we could fly
Well even a fool could have seen which way that was going

Time goes bye
It really flies before your eyes you realize
Yes time goes by it really flies
It shouldn't leave you surprised

What happened to the one I knew
The one I loved
The one who loved me too
What happened to the smiling face
Take me back to that place

Time goes bye
It really flies before your eyes you realize
Yes time goes by it really flies
It shouldn't leave you surprised
Surprised
Track Name: Blood In The Sand
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
