Track Name: Mother Sea
Mother Sea
By Derek Campbell
From the album Reserection (2007)

See me rise up like a phoenix
from the ashes of the game
see me burn into the sunrise
with no memory of the name
that had chained me like a virgin
to the alter of the beast
waiting for the flesh to break
before my soul can be released

Chorus:
father sky mother sea into the blue as you enrapture me
sister moon brother beast I will raise a toast to you before I feast

you could never see it coming
you cannot escape the grasp
you best pray that on that day
I don’t get medieval on your ass
it may make you want to run and hide
but that won’t do no good
just relax and let it happen oh
I really think you should

(Chorus)

Elevation
Destiny
Reservations?
No no no no
cause I know that it’s free…

You will hear it in the water
and the wind that blows the trees
you will smell it in the flowers
it will sting you like a bee
through one hundred million life times
with a billion more to go
infinity embraces me
and I’m falling like the snow…

(Chorus)

Track Name: No Angel
you ain't no angel
you got too much on your brain
you ain't no angel
you got too much to explain
but you're good
yah child you're good

you ain't no angel
you got too much to explore
you're like a stranger
but I'm opening the door
cause I should
I should

I don't need you to change
I just want you to remain

you ain't no angel
there's too much you want to know
you ain't no angel
there's too much you want to show
that you could
yah you could

I don't need you to change
I just want you to remain

you ain't no angel
you're just too out of control
there is no danger
I don't have to sell my soul
but i would
yah i would

you ain't no angel
you got too much on your brain
you ain't no angel
you got too much to explain
but you're good
yah child you're good
Track Name: Life Goes On
Life Goes On
By Derek Campbell
From the album Reserection 2007

So many times so many lines unsaid
so many places faces fade into my fantasy
so many reasons different seasons bring the memories of colors
dimmed in moonlight shadows neath the mountains majesty
at different times different mind laid foundations
upon which I’ve laid the structure of my concept of reality
to be eroded by the winds of time
untill all that’s left of me is nothing but the memory of my vanity

Chorus
Life goes on like a roller coaster life goes on like a speeding train
life goes on and I’m getting older in spite of the pain

same thing at the same time every day
but something told me that was not the way it had to be
stayin down in the town being pushed around
by a clown to make a living working in a factory
with no color in my eyes as the spectrum
that was once a vivid vibrant pallet fades to different shades of grey
like a cocoon wrapped around my conscious mind
until my spirits metamorphosis escapes into the light of day

Chorus

There’s no time to be wasted focused on the question
of what waits to greet me just beyond the gate if ecstasy
when I’ve arrived there will be no secrets I can’t taste
and answers to the questions I don’t know will be revealed to me
just like the vapor of the cloud to the rain to the river
flowing to the ocean where the void embraces me
to be relieved of the ego that encapsulates the purity of being
that exists until I cease to be

Chorus

Track Name: I'll Be
I’ll Be
By Derek Campbell
From the album Reserection (2007)
It was hard hearing everything you had to say and I think I’m over it now but still it lingers in my memory did you have to be so cruel? Did you have to put me down? Couldn’t you have found a more poetic way to work your issues out? I don’t know what I expected but it wasn’t this I will be what I’ll be and you will see I don’t care just what you say or if you’re thinking about me and though my mind will fall behind my soul will be free I will be what I’ll be and you will see I had to take a step back I had to push rewind I had to find myself a place deep in the back of my mind where I could hide with everybody lookin at me I don’t want to be paranoid but everybody’s out to get me and my fait I can’t avoid I’ll never be who they see and they will never see me but I won’t loose my sanity to this vanity no more (Chorus)
Track Name: Pack Yer Bags
Well We know that you lied
and we see how people have died
we see your mind is deranged
and we know it's time for a change

Before the night is over
(pack yer bags and get outta here!!!)

It's time for a change and we'll all be gettin in to it
need i remind you your whole reign is illigitimate
you weren't elected you infected the whole system with your tricks to fix the numbers while we slumbered now we're waking up

Before the night is over
(pack your bags your gettin out!!!)

Your mind is poisoned with greed
and you've turned on those in need
your bloody hands are unclean
and the consequence will be seen

Before the night is over
(pack yer bags and get outta here!!!)

thought you could get away with lyin' and this spyin business
and spending lives to jack the profits of your business interests
but we ain't broken and the hoax to coax the folks to vote for jokes is up in smoke i take a toke and hold it now i've spoken

Before the night is over
(pack yer bags and get outta here!!!)
(??????? i don't know what's the matter with you)
(pack yer bags and get outta here!!!)

(3X) well you been lyin people dyin over choices you made
and all the power in your hands will go off like a grenade
when those you chose to cast aside become as sharp as a blade
and cut you down to size before another lie is obeyed

so now we've risen we ain't givin into no more B.S.
we'll do our part to try to start to help clean up your big mess
now we ain't jivin we've arrived to drive the demons screamin from the body politic and frolic where we've all been dreamin

Before the night is over

Before the night is over
(pack yer bags and get outta here!!!)

Girlfriend
You were once the most creative one until you gave your soul away now she’s gone and you’re having fun and this is all I have to say you don’t need another girlfriend until you understand yourself you once told me you’d be the one who would lead us into victory with your axe in hand now the time has come and you can conquer your destiny but you don’t need another girlfriend until you understand your destiny…
Track Name: Mr. Badluck
Mr. Badluck
By Derek Campbell
From the album Reserection (2007)

5 nights 5 fights from the ringside seating
Bettin on the chance my man ain’t gonna be bleedin
Any worse than the other guy
Hit him in the ribs sock em in the eye
Take him down and defeat him
Body mind and soul
Wrap him up and eat him like an egg roll
Easy on the spicy sauce
In the land of illusion see a man get lost
In obsession with the lesser things
Graspin in the dark for the old brass ring
There’s danger in the inky shadows
sniffin out the stench of those stinky old
Hosanna, you’re a super star
Healin lepers with the junk from the trunk of your car
Luck be a lady tonight
Just be careful of her man cause he’s ready to fight
He’s

Mr. Badluck and he ain’t in no mood for ya
You best be getting out of his way
Mr. Badluck ain’t got nothing but a bruise for ya
This ain’t no game and he doesn’t play hay hay

Sit still hold tight don’t move cause it might bite
Barkin in your face with its teeth right inches from your nose
Don’t blow it don’t let em see you sweat
If you scared then they’ll know it
And then you’re screwed black and blued
Lyin in the alley with your ass all chewed up
Crazy how the sh.. can go
Knock once for yes knock twice for no
I’ll hear you through the ventilation
Make my assessment of the situation
And act upon my baser instincts
Thrashin like a beast on the eve of my extinction
It’s inevitableIt’s even more nutriyiouse than a vegetable
Too unique ti servive and yet I thrive in a colder climate
About 5 hours drive from

Mr. Badluck and he ain’t in no mood for ya
You best be getting out of his way...
Track Name: Bling
BLING
By Derek Campbell
From the album Reserection (2007)

Valuable commodities and oddities
a lot of these is
reasons sleezes cheese and freeze ya
please, disease is rampant when you stamp it
with the symbol of the higher archic figure
that enables the corruption of the
hearts and spirits, minds that fear it's
power to devoure every hour every minute that your in it
it's progressing and ingesting and infesting where you're nesting
so the best thing i can do is
screw a little with the mindset of the
masses and the classes full of glasses wearin
geniouses and imbeciles who think the will
is strong but flesh is weak enogh to tweak the peak of which i speak
in freakish new directions of enlightenment
and questions
for the thinker on the mountain summit
till you plummet back into the chasm
of the blissful ignorance and pignorance
allowing for the exploitation of the tender feelings
but you're peeling off the cieling
and exposing weaknesses within the structure of the system but you missed 'em
when you kissed him on the ring' I'm singin'

this is the prime time
i'm breakin out this rhyme
i'm twistin up my dime i'm singin
cause i'm bringin the bling

this is the new way
this is my holliday
there's nothin left to say i'm singin
cause i'm bringin the bling

i'm in the free zone
i'm burryin my bone
i'm hearin that my phone is ringin'
now i'm bringin the bling

i am the chosen one
ride off into the sun
i'm stickin, just for fun, my thing in
cause i'm bringin the bling

i'm shakin it off i'm takin it off breakin it off
i'm waking up the sun is risin i'm suprisin
myself with the immages that flood into my conscious mind
and find a dry and barren desert
waiting for the rainy season to release it
from the grip of summer's swelter
now i melt her with my kisses
and my wishes all come true for just a moment
don't it seem the ring off brass is trash
my grass is greener on the side i'm on
then on the billboards false demeaner
i raise a crop and chop it for the gleaners

this is the prime time
i'm breakin out this rhyme
i'm twistin up my dime i'm singin
cause i'm bringin the bling

this is the new way
this is my holliday
there's nothin left to say i'm singin
cause i'm bringin the bling

i'm in the free zone
i'm burryin my bone
i'm hearin that my phone is ringin'
now i'm bringin the bling

i am the chosen one
ride off into the sun
i'm stickin, just for fun, my thing in
cause i'm bringin the bling
