When you are inspired by some great purpose
some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds
Your mind transcends limitations
your consciousness expands in every direction
and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world

Relax your mind and let it happen

just like a seedling in the sunshine
stretch yourself into the light; take charge and let it flow
and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world

Inspiration

Inner strengths, abilities and talents become alive
you discover yourself to be a greater person by far
than you ever dreamed yourself to be

In a great new world
Track Name: The Corner
The Corner
lyrics by Jack Foster III, music by Jack Foster III and Robert Berry
©2008 Muse-Wrapped Publishing

It’s right around the corner
loquacious mime
quotes nursery rhyme
like Little Jackie Horner
insert thumb
pull out a plumb
It’s right around the corner
piece of pie
in the sky
don’t wonder why
I think that we’re still movin’
don’t think just keep on groovin’
‘cause Jumpin’ Jack
still lives in a fantasy land
(not far away he)
plays in a Rock ‘n Roll band
(plays lead guitar)
smiles and cries no time to wait
I’m late I’m late I’m . . . .
I’m late I’m late I’m . . . .
(he’s late he’s late . . . .)
(he’s late he’s late . . . .)
So davida vo davida lolicka solicka
So davida vo davida
vich vich vich vich vich vich
So dance away the hours
like Fred Astaire
no need to care
And give your girl some fl owers
daffodils
and happy pills
and dance away the hours
boogie down
lucky clown
why look around
So ride around the ferris wheel
prepare your wares and make a deal
you’re back where you begin
This time it’s gonna be brand new
a shining polished saphire, blue
and losers sometimes win
say it again, yeah
and again, yeah
When you get old
you can look back so fondly
at the elegant parties
and the mad drunken sprees
the echoes of laughter
will remain in your ears
as you smile
through the tears
So dance away the hours
like Fred Astaire
no need to care
And give your girl some fl owers
daffodils
and happy pills
so dance away the hours
boogie down
lucky clown
why look around
I think that we’re still movin’
don’t think just keep on groovin’
‘cause Jumpin’ Jack
still lives in a fantasy land
(not far away)
plays in a Rock ‘n Roll band
(plays lead guitar)
smiles and cries no time to wait
I’m late I’m late I’m . . . .
I’m late I’m late I’m . . . .
(he’s late he’s late . . . .)
(he’s late he’s late . . . .)
So davida vo davida lolicka solicka
So davida vo davida
vich vich vich vich vich vich
Ask for a lolicka
so davida cataratarich
eh ah si oh eh ah si oh
So ride on down to Shangrila
eternal life (comme ci, comme ça)
is yours with no disgrace
On you marks, get set and go
with open heart, resilient soul
join the human race
just need some faith, yeah
faith, yeah
Track Name: To Have And To Hold
To Have And To Hold
lyrics by Jack Foster III, music by Foster, Gardner, and Berry
©2008 Muse-Wrapped Publishing

(ain’t no way to turn my love light out)
I woke, it was a Sunday
My head was fi lled with Laura
those days, Oh what a haze,
couldn’t think about anything else
I guess I’d fallen for her
I kinda-like . . . adored her

(ain’t no way to turn my love light out)
she turned it on and up without a doubt
and now that she’s a part of me,
it makes me want to shout
there ain’t no way to turn my love light out

ain’t no way . . . ain’t no way

We started hand in hand, we did
faced the world together,
had a plan, we did
She gave me of herself, she did
and we loved
with every bit of our might
started our life

She’s walking towards me in white,
the story is told
she’s the one I wanted
to have and to hold
to have and to hold

And there ain’t no way
to turn my love light out
she turned it on and up without a doubt
and now that she’s a part of me,
it makes me want to shout
there ain’t no way
to turn my love light out

ain’t no way . . . ain’t no way

We started hand in hand, we did
faced the world together, had a plan we did
what did we know?
No way to know the way we’d grow
We raised a fam’ly, yeah we did
laughing children bouncing on the knee
Man did they grow!
the world is always turning ya know

(inst.)

We started hand in hand, we did
faced the world together,
you know man we did
We’ve had our share of fights, we have
Spent our unfair share
of lonely nights, we have
We’ve caused each other pain, we have
grown apart and struggle to get back
to get back again
want to know you once again

When I look in the mirror,
I feel kind of old
am I the one she wanted
to have and to hold
to have and to hold

but there ain’t no way
to turn my love light out
yes I still love you

Outbreak Monkey
lyrics by Jack Foster III, music by Foster and Berry

Heading down to the boulevard
gonna take some time,
animate some places
Make a friend, drink a pint of beer
trade a tale or two
Got an answer for the broken heart
got a dream that ought to do it
yeah - yeah

Life
is a word
for a song
that we all gotta sing with hearts
and our minds
but there’s never time
cause the rhythm rolls on
Oh yeah
Oh

Got an answer to the broken world
Gotta turn yourself
into an outbreak monkey
you’re a virus, whatcha wanna catch?
not a heart-ache, not a fl u
Spread a smile, and a helpin’ hand
lend an ear, yeah you can do it
yeah - yeah

Life
is a word
for a song
that we all gotta sing with hearts
and our minds
but there’s never time
cause the rhythm rolls on

Time flies on prestissimo wings
grooves like a heavy
mother on speed
keep deep in the pocket
spreading the love

Got an answer to the broken world
Gotta turn yourself
into an outbreak monkey
you’re a virus, whatcha wanna catch?
not a heart-ache, not a fl u
Spread a smile, and a helpin’ hand
lend an ear, yeah you can do it
yeah - yeah

Life
is a word
for the song
that we all gotta sing with hearts
and our minds
but there’s never time
cause the rhythm is
Life
yeah the word
for the song
that we all gotta sing with hearts
and our minds
but there’s never time
cause the rhythm rolls on
Track Name: Dreaming Not Sleeping
Dreaming Not Sleeping
lyrics by Foster and Myers; music by Foster, Gardner, and Berry

Dreaming Not Sleeping
there’s a love that’s worth keeping
paradise
thrown out with the ice
after the party’s done
Half asleep and half awake
you’re in the breath I take
Let the world weep through the blind
‘cause the world that’s yours and mine
Is all that matters now

suspended in between
what’s real and what is dream
weaving in and weaving out
I kiss you when we meet
. . . amid broken lullabies
you’re all I’m about now

you’re the picture of restraint
in face white theatre paint
you guessed right from the start
I’d rather not feel at all
yet I brave the sandman’s sand
to catch your trapeze hand
and hold it to my heart
to save you from your fall

Dreaming Not Sleeping
of a love that’s worth keeping
Am I foolish, am I wise
to think if one of us tries
that all your wishing wells
wouldn’t be just fairy tales
then the fates they would allow
we could be happy somehow

the heart of the circus
perfectly imperfect
won’t waste any motion
trying to make you understand
‘cause Time waits for poppa
and poppa waits for momma
and if I could rise to your embrace
you know that I
would do the samba
and sway with you lover
in the warm summer clover
no I’ll never get over . . .

Dreaming Not Sleeping
of a love that’s worth keeping
Am I foolish, am I wise
to think if one of us tries
that all your wishing wells
wouldn’t be just fairy tales
then the fates they would allow
we could be happy right now

we’re stuck here in between
the nightmare and the dream
weaving out and weaving in
the comfort your heart seeks

Dreaming Not Sleeping
of a love that’s worth keeping
Am I foolish, am I wise
to think if one of us tries
that all your wishing wells
wouldn’t be just fairy tales
then the fates they would allow
we could be happy right now

Dreaming Not Sleeping
of a love that’s worth keeping
that our hidden paradise
ain’t thrown out with the ice
paradise
thrown out with the ice
Track Name: Mandelbrot World
Mandelbrot World
lyrics by Jack Foster III
music by Foster, Gardner, and Berry

Travelling while unravelling
The details of the details
Every mountain is a valley turned around
Every valley is a multitude
Of angles and of angels
But the angels never dare to make a sound
the angels never dare to make a sound
the angels never dare to make a sound
A billion rocks between the boundaries
A billion worlds between the rocks
A billion curves inside the worlds
But that’s not it
A billion stars on the horizon
A billion worlds around the stars
A billion lives inside the worlds
Don’t mind a bit
Any inspiration here
might turn your world around
Transform it to another world to climb
The safest thing to do would be
To insulate your living, since you can only
live in one world at a time
you can only live in one world at a time
Countless rocks between the boundaries
Countless worlds between the rocks
Countless curves between the worlds
But that’s not it
Countless stars on the horizon
A billion worlds around the stars
Countless lives inside the worlds
Don’t mind a bit
All chaotic in its beauty
it’s a Mandelbrot World
Ever complicated
Forever liberated
wrap your dreams around the curl
That’s a twisting and a winding
Take a look and you’ll be fi nding
Your Mandelbrot World
Safety’s over-rated
Said the safe man to the armchair
Once your navel’s contemplated
It’s time to move to bigger things
Or smaller ones,
at least different ones
Y’know, the details of the details
From the navel to the fuzz
without the strings
From the navel to the fuzz
without the strings
A billion rocks between the boundaries
A billion worlds between the rocks
A billion curves between the worlds
But that’s not it
A billion stars on the horizon
A billion worlds around the stars
A billion lives inside the worlds
Don’t mind a bit
All chaotic in its beauty
it’s a Mandelbrot World
Ever complicated
Forever liberated
wrap your dreams around the curl
That’s a twisting and a winding
Take a look and you’ll be fi nding
Your Mandelbrot World
Track Name: God And War
God And War
lyrics by Jack Foster III, music by Foster, Gardner, and Berry
©2008 Muse-Wrapped Publishing

Blessed are the meek
for they shall inherit the earth
Blessed are those who hunger
and thirst for righteousness
for they shall be satisfi ed
I miss the song in my head that I never
could get out, oh no
There’s a trace of a smile in my heart when
I think about the people I know, I know
There was a song in the breeze
much bigger than the world, I know
Can I hope to live within that song,
escape back to the world I used to know
when the smoke-fi lled breeze
smothers eyes and soul
and the blood in streams
drowns the song of peace
War - I don’t know what it’s for
don’t want fi ght this war any more
Hate - can only isolate
don’t want to hate my brothers no more
There’s a wind across the sand that
silences the song, I know
I can’t hear the song no more, pain inside
my heart’s the only song that I know
when I look around, see the looks of hate
aimed at what I’ve become
numb without the song
I can’t hear it, I can’t feel it
I can’t hear you, I can’t feel you
there are faces in my head
that I just can’t escape, I know
can I live with what I’ve done,
faces taken from the world, I don’t know
Track Name: The New American
The New American
lyrics by Jack Foster III
music by Foster, Gardner, and Berry
©2008 Muse-Wrapped Publishing

Lost and lonely tattered man
broken on the street
he’s not a lucky one
but refl ected in his eyes
audacious man of hope
smiled broadly and spoke to us
we can all be the lucky ones
Oh, when we realize
We can change the world together
Yes we can, you know we can
We can strive for peace and justice
Yes we can, you know we can
We can fi ght for truth, we can
His visionary eloquence
is in my heart and mind
I know we’re the lucky ones
if we can use that strength for all
I looked inside myself
to try to understand
if anybody can (can understand)
how to stand up strong and never fall
But the stars can tell a story
that you may not want to hear
they can make you feel much smaller
than the shadow of a fear
Yes the stars can tell a story
of a world inside a tear
We can tell the world a story
that it really needs to hear
it can make you feel much larger
than the shadow of a fear
Yes we’ll tell the world a story
of a world inside of a tear, a tear
I try to turn myself
into a better man
A New American
who reads the writing on the wall
I wake up breathing deeply
I’m revitalized
I’ve got my open eyes
I know we’ll stand up
strong and never fall
We can change the world together
Yes we can, you know we can
We can strive for peace and justice
Yes we can, you know we can
We can heal this broken nation
Yes we can, Yes we can
We can fi ght for truth, we can
But the stars can tell a story
that you may not want to hear
they can make you feel much smaller
than the shadow of a fear
Yes the stars can tell a story
of a world inside a tear
We can tell the world a story
that it really needs to hear
it can make us feel much larger
than the shadow of a fear
Yes we’ll tell the world a story
and the world will stand up and cheer
Track Name: Sometimes When You When
Sometimes When You Win
lyrics by Jack Foster III, music by Foster, Gardner, and Berry
©2008 Muse-Wrapped Publishing

Cut-throat attitude
and an effervescent smile
a winning combination, so they say
so silver-tongued and debonair -- the
center of the world
the power to write the rules
of the games you play

‘cause sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
you lose
sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
you lose

self-satisfaction’s yours
enjoy it while you can
ignore the tear-stained karma if you dare
it don’t matter to you now, I know,
my silly myopic friend
but one day you may wake up
and fi nd you care

‘cause sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
you lose

Winning isn’t everything;
it’s how you play the game
but that platitude’s a picture
that don’t fi t easily in your frame

and sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
you lose

be careful what you wish for
it just might come your way
pay-back’s a bitch
that’s worth its weight in rain
a year’s supply of toothpicks
a country parking space
not every prize is a treasure
worth the pain
a Pyrrhic gain
not worth the pain

Hip Hip Hooray, congratz,
looks like you win again
or at least I’ve run out
of anything else to say
so once again my friend
looks like you get the fi nal word
or maybe I’ve just grown tired
of how you play

‘cause sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
you lose
sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
sometimes when you win
you lose
