Track Name: No Absolutes
No absolute morality
What's right for you is wrong for me
No discipline to set us free
And think about our actions

Don't tell Johnny when he acts the brat
In case he gets upset, you wouldn't hurt his feelings
Don't smack Johnny when he misbehaves
You wouldn't crush the rebel son

And the truth can set you free from a lost, confused identity

No real accountability
They're all to blame except for me
No absolute reality
The truth is what you're feeling

But the truth can set you free from a lost, confused identity

No respect for authority
Politically correct are we
The wisdom of the centuries
Rejected by the masses

And the truth can set you free from a lost, confused identity
Track Name: There For Me
I can't deny the pain inside
I've been down so many times I cannot count it
And the hurt within can suffocate the self-esteem
Without a prayer I know I could never take it
I know I'd never take it

And when the man has fallen and it all comes down
You are there for me
And when the man has fallen and it all comes down
You are there for me, for me, for me

I can't exist without your love
The human heart was made to know and feel it
And the light within can sometimes burn so dim
But I know your resurrection will transform me
Resurrection will transform me
Track Name: Free Gypsy
Unfettered gypsy heart, fly wild spirit
Unchained creative force, free expression
Regenerated thoughts, purer the vision
Rekindled human soul, warm is the passion within

This world is not my home, a traveller passes through
No treasures tug these strings, my heart belongs to you

Unbounded gypsy heart, nothing restraining
Unbridled lips declare love's true anthem
Inspired words of life, guiding the journey
Reborn to breathe afresh, sweet the beginning anew

This world is not my home, a traveller passes through
No treasures tug these strings, my heart belongs to you
Track Name: Mystery Of Life (Version 2)
Time moves without moving breathing on this carousel
Infant baby to a fading shell
Can the mind of mortal man find reason to it all?
Mystery of life speak to my soul
Mystery of life speak to my soul

Wars and desolation scar this pleasant land
Man's perversion in a bloodied hand
Father of creation, when will this destruction end>
Mystery of life speak to my soul
Mystery of life speak to my soul

In a lifetime, in a threescore year and ten
Is it possible to understand the wisdom of salvation's plan?

Holy blood is seeping through a gaping wound
Crimson lifeline to a people doomed
How is there forgiveness in a murder on a tree?
Mystery of life speak to my soul
Mystery of life speak to my soul

In a lifetime, in a threescore year and ten
Is it possible to understand the wisdom of salvation's plan?
