Track Name: The Mermaids Daughter
THE MERMAID'S DAUGHTER song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

when I looked beyond her face
in the night I saw two moons
one floating just above the sea
on the line of the horizon

one reflecting back at me
as if shining underwater
I know she is of special grace
perhaps she is the mermaid's daughter

Two moons
Two moons

this was such a magic place
I know the winter's coming soon
coming soon so wild and free
perhaps that is not so surprising

the door to summer has no key
she has no price no one has bought her
no one can know no one has caught her
perhaps she is the mermaid's daughter

perhaps she is the mermaid's daughter....
Track Name: What Did You Do
WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME? song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

when I woke
up today
didn't know
who I am

walk
down the street
all alone
3 AM

I can't take one more morning like this again

what did you do to me?
what did you do to me?
what did you do to me?
what did you do to me?

I can't get over you
I can't figure the true
I can't understand it
I can't make it all fit

no two hearts are alike
nothing turning out right
not use turning the light
I'm not sleeping at night anymore

feels like I'm broke in half
can't remember how to laugh
nothing will work anymore
barely get out of the door

and when I do I don't know
where the hell I should go
nothing is good anymore any how
what am I sposed to do now

is there are way
or is this yesterday
I might just go insane
if tomorrow turns out to be the same

bees
in my head
sirens wail
almost dead

nothing
left to pawn
all my luck's
been and gone

up
to the wall
this is it
this is all

under a street lamp the rain starts to fall

what did you do to me?
what did you do to me?
what did you do to me?
what did you do to me?
Track Name: Deep Down Inside
Deep Down Inside - Burak Babacan

I watch the sky 
With big round eyes 
Long bamboo huts 
No place to hide but Sand channel ruts 

No clouds, no rain 
I see a gesture of pain 
I hear someone woe 
But I have no place to go 

CHORUS 

I stand 
And I care 
Deep down inside 
I know I should stay 

VERSE 2 

daughters walk in the mud 
children wash in the flood 
I feel hopeless, alone 
Getting silently mad 

CHORUS 

But I stand 
And I care 
Deep down inside 
I know I should stay 

BRIDGE 

A refugee camp in shacks 
Rows of bamboo huts in the flood 
Open drains, & wet families 
waiting for food 
everywhere, there is blood 

CHORUS 

But I stand 
And I care 
Deep down inside 
I know I should stay 
Track Name: Distant Touch
A Distant Touch - Burak Babacan 

I woke up alive 
Under the stars 

With the thoughts of death 
I looked at the sky 

not so far 
not so close 

a distant touch of something new 

A place so safe 
It’s got nothing to face 
A silent call 
A free fall 
In the eye of the storm 
need a rest for my soul 
Please let me go, 
let me go 

CHORUS 

I see 
the flowers on a tree 
Next to a banshee 
a distant touch of something new 
a distant touch 

(guitar part-no vocals) 

VERSE 2 

Entangled 
in a dead end job 
Frustrated 
‘cos noone is home 
Alone 
And getting old 
Got to break the chains 
To tie the loose ends 

CHORUS 

I see 
Flowers on a tree 
Next to a banshee 
a distant touch of something new 
A distant touch 

BRIDGE 

I ain’t got much time 
Got to make the most out of it 
Rushing to the limit 
Before I finish 
Don’t care what the doctor says 
I have to be there, a part of this race 
Track Name: Flowers in the Moon
FLOWERS IN THE MOON song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

I thought I saw
flowers in the moon
and I knew
I'd be back home soon

I know I have the strength
to be all that I own
to walk another thousand miles
down a dusty road

don't give up
don't give in
there is so much more
you can win

don't give in
don't give up
drink that wine that you are given
lying in the cup

I thought I saw
flowers in the moon
so white so bright
like the white rose bloom

looking at the sky
looking into night
I can be this thing
I can make it right

don't give up
don't give in
there is so much more
you can win

don't give in
don't give up
drink that wine that you are given
lying in the cup
Track Name: Plain and Simple
PLAIN AND SIMPLE WORDS song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

based on the words of John Bunyan

I was blind but now I see
take the Word most literally
he believes who will be saved
take these words unto my grave

God reveals the Word to all
from the truth there is no wall
even babies see the light
no man can tell you what is right

these are plain and simple words
these are truths that can be heard
rising like a cloud of birds
these are plain and simple words

a wise man can be just like a fool
a fool can be wise before God
the world itself shall be our school
and salvation can't be bought

I was told they'd kill me dead
for the things that I have said
but I told them I'd not budge
judge not lest ye shall be judged

these are plain and simple words
these are truths that I have learned
though they jail me flesh doth burn
these are plain and simple words

I was sent to prison vile
asking God if this should be
but I spoke as if a child
as they took my liberty

but in jail I sang of praise
many spirits I did raise
this is what I'm meant to do
this is what God called me to

these are plain and simple words
hallelujah has occurred
I was born for He I serve
these are plain and simple words
Track Name: Jesus and the Pharisees
JESUS AND THE PHARISEES song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

based on Matthew 22 and 24

when the Pharisees
came to Him they asked Him
what's the greatest of laws

and he answered them
with these words so true
they could not believe it all

ye shall love the Lord God
with all thy heart
and with all thy soul and mind

if you shut the kingdom
of Heaven against men
then ye are just so blind

trust not those who preach
only those who teach
be not fooled by their reach

the greatest shall be servant
the humble no fault
and they shall be exalted

then they asked him again
to tell unto men
whose son is the Christ

and he replied to them
the Son of David
and that should suffice

said the Spirit did be
inspired by He
so what did He speak

the Lord said unto the Lord
sit on my right hand
the foes under feet"

trust not those who preach
only those who teach
be not fooled by their reach

the greatest shall be servant
the humble no fault
and they shall be exalted

this he did try to say
so we'd understand
he tried to explain

some to lead you astray
will tell you they came
to come in my name

and when you hear of wars
I'll tell you what for
this must come to pass

nation rise against nation
but even this this too
shall come to pass

trust not those who preach
only those who teach
be not fooled by their reach

the greatest shall be servant
the humble no fault
and they shall be exalted
Track Name: Rock That Feeling
ROCK THAT FEELING - Burak Babacan

A chance meeting
in the bay of love

Where my heart fell apart
Where you left me in disguise

Wondering who I am
Now we’ve met, once again
Will you forgive me ?

I couldnt hold your hand
I let my life slip away
Some things can’t be planned
Now, it’s my last chance

A past time adventure
A fast climb
to the mount pleasure
In the end, I was afraid
And I let it fade

CHORUS

Rock that feeling
To make it true
Rock that feeling
To see me through
Rock that feeling
‘cos I feel blue
Rock that feeling
My meaning is you

VERSE

I will walk with you
I will hold your hand

I will warm your heart
I will play my part

This time it’s different
Now I can see
This song meant to last
And my pain has passed

I just need a crack in the wall
The dam is about to burst
Will you be the first to end this thirst ?

CHORUS

Rock that feeling
To make it true
Rock that feeling
To see me through
Rock that feeling
‘cos I feel blue
Rock that feeling
My meaning is you
Track Name: Free You Stand
FREE song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

I went up to the mountaintop
to test the limit of my faith
at the summit the sun came up
asked a question and I waited

all alone
in thought
I am just a little man
all alone
with God
in the place where life began
in the place where life began

the eagles flew all around me as
the sky turned into day
I listened closely to future past
and this the wind did say

you are free
it said
free to live what is your life
you are free
to choose
between the two paths of the night
free to choose between the heartbeat and the knife

free you stand
in the place where life began
in the place where life began

and at dusk I climbed back down
to the rest of what was me
to the years live upon the ground
to my friends and family

but sometimes I look at the stars
and I wonder what was said
and I know when my life is hard
I'll still live after I'm dead

free you stand
you stand as you will always stand
in the place where life began
