Track Name: New Paradigm
You Were There
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

There was a dark cloud
looming over
my fragile head
my tender shoulders
and I allowed seeds to grow
into thoughts and things
they possessed me and
stopped me from succeeding

When no one was there but you
You picked me up
and you carried me through

But now I’m older
attained wisdom
And I commit to
a peaceful outcome
and love comes floating
through a gentle wave
I embrace my life and

When no one was there but you
You picked me up
and you carried me through
accept that I’m OK
Track Name: What are you doing?
Eskimo
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

Who do you think you are
walking around like a movie star
lighting up the room
what a real way to go
live your life like an eskimo
hiding from the light

what a real way to go
what a great way to behave

Who do you think you are
walking around like a movie star
lighting up the room
what a real way to go
never able to let go
life brings complications

what a real way to go
what a great way to behave
Track Name: You Were There
New Paradigm
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

Shine your light on this time
Oh it's this time
New paradigm
Feel the love
in this time
Oh in this time
Let your light shine

Yesterday I was blind
Didn't let my guiding light shine
But in peace I will find
All the love that's
held in this time

Shine your light on this time
Oh it's this time
New paradigm
Feel the love
in this time
Oh in this time
Let your light shine!
Track Name: Eskimo
I’ve got your song in my heart
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

Redeem me with your grace
rest my feet on a level place
and fell my with your lovingkindness

I’ve got your song inside my heart
it takes away the loneliness
and mends this broken part
I’ve got your song inside my heart
it takes away the loneliness and
mends that broken part

You’ve lit my path again
you are my closest friend
and my heart overflows
with your love

I’ve got your song inside my heart
it takes away the loneliness
and mends that broken part
I’ve got your song inside my heart
it takes away the loneliness and
mends that broken part
Track Name: New Dawn
New Dawn
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

If you can't get over it
if life has brought you down
if you lost all your love inside
and no hope to be found

if you wish that you weren't here
if your heart seemed to disappear
and if you want someone to be there
and your life is full of despair

and if you think you’ve lost your mind
and you lost touch with humankind
and if you don’t know where you’re
going and you don’t know where you’ve been

May love fill the night and relieve all the fright
let us dance
let us win
let the new dawn begin
May we love from our hearts
may the darkness depart
let it in
may we win
may the new dawn begin

If you wish that you were free
if it's too dark, no light to see
if it's too hard to look up
and you've got an empty cup

and if you think you've lost your mind
out of touch with humankind
and if your scared to lose your home
and scared of a world unknown
well, no more suffering
this world has seen too much
but if you want to grow
you can stay here with us

May love fill the night and relieve all the fright
let us dance
let us win
let the new dawn begin
May we love from our hearts
may the darkness depart
let it in
may we win
may the new dawn begin
Track Name: Slow Wave
Slow Wave
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

In the middle of the night
sometimes I feel alone
I can’t see the light
so far away from home

So when they called me baby
I think maybe
I don’t want to be like them
And through the fuss and fighting
hearts igniting
it’s hard to feel at home
but I remember last December
when that happened to me
and now I know I that you were
always in my heart with me

In the middle of the night
I will be OK
relieve this fight or flight
and with peace I’ll stay
In the middle of the night
you’ll get my call
Peace be with me
and please set me free
In the middle of the night
you’ll be with me
In the middle of the night
peace be with me
In the middle of the night
peace be with me
peace be with me

What are you doing?
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

What are you doing with yourself all day
you can get up and go
get up and make a change x 2

Some spend all day watching tv
and playing games
some take drugs and some on social media
some shop all day and eat junk food
some stay perpetually in a bad mood
some spend their day shopping at the mall
and if we keep this up humanity will surely fall

What are you doing with yourself all day
you can get up and go
get up and make a change x 2

We can plant trees, build communities,
help those in need, learn homeopathy,
learn to grow a garden, eat organic foods,
exercise, change your diet, you’ll be in a better mood
practice forgiving, meditate and pray
learn a new language and practice the new way
and if everyone makes these changes in their lives
we will survive; we will thrive

What are you doing with yourself all day
you can get up and go
get up and make a change x 2
Track Name: In The Sun
Through the Thick and Thin
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

Lost lamb don’t cry
to be wandering alone
where is your shepherd?
who’ll find supper?
Wild animals
hunt for you
they try to take your life
and your spirit away
have you gone astray?
and I know your pain
but through the thick and thick
love will find you
through the thick and thin
love will find you
through the thick and thin
it’s right behind you
through the thick and thin
Track Name: Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious
Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

You are not of this world
you make me spin and twirl
I am your instrument
your love in heaven sent

Your Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious

You are the living bread
revive the walking dead
feed them your wheat and wine
the food of the divine

Your Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious
Your Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious, yeah yeah

Kingdoms of cotton clouds
before you I kneel, I bow
darkness is not allowed
true love is here and now

Your Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious
Your Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious, yeah yeah
Your Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious
Your Powerful, Supernatural, Mysterious, yeah yeah
Track Name: Who's Guiding Me?
Who’s Guiding Me?
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

Who’s guiding me?
Is it real?
Does it love me?
Does it heal?
Sometime I feel like a lost sheep
has he found me?
was I asleep?
in this nightmare
so unaware
walking blindfold
full of despair

Who’s guiding me?
Is it real?
Does it love me?
Does it heal?

I seek inside
for what is real
this is the place
where God will heal
all my wounds
my cuts and scraps
from this phallacy
I shall escape
from the confusion
in the dark
and the delusion
when I miss the mark

Who’s guiding me?
Is it real?
Does it love me?
Does it heal?

My precious God
please keep me whole
I’m tired of broken
I release control
make me your instrument
your will, not mine
you’re in my heart
your love will shine
please guide my mind
protect my thoughts
bless me with wisdom
and all you’ve taught

Who’s guiding me?
Is it real?
Does it love me?
Does it heal?
Who’s guiding me?
Is it real?
Does it love me?
Does it heal?

Prince of Peace,
Almighty One
Lead me this day
as it’s begun
fill me with love
fill me with light
make all of what’s wrong right
and guide me back where I belong
make healthy and make me strong

Who’s guiding me?
Is it real?
Does it love me?
Does it heal?
Who’s guiding me?
Is it real?
Does it love me?
Does it heal?
Who’s guiding me?
Who’s guiding me?
Who’s guiding me?
Who’s guiding me?

Track Name: Through the thick and thin
In The Sun
music and lyrics by Kelly Slusher

Everybody that I know
baths in water from below
wash away those bad feelings
in the sun their hearts will sing

I knew someone just like you
who didn’t know just what to
love is here and love is true
you don’t have to break in two

I will take you in my arms
and protect you from all harm
but you gotta trust my love
and my kisses and my hugs
and my kisses and my hugs

Everybody that I love
baths in water from above
wash away those sad feelings
in the sun their hearts will sing
in the sun their hearts will sing
in the sun their hearts will sing
in the sun their hearts will sing

Holy child,
when will know you are beautiful?
All the while, he sits and waits for you to remember
Holy child,
when will know you are beautiful?
All the while, he sits and waits for you to remember
Holy child,
when will know you are beautiful?
All the while, he sits and waits for you to remember

Holy Child!
Holy Child!
Holy Child!
Holy Child!
Holy Child!
Holy Child!
