This is a collection of songs that I had to produce right away, as though I were on a crow's nest and I had to yell down to the deck an alarm. I wrote these songs in response to the threat the Pacific Northwest faces with proposed pipelines, an old friend's story about Japan after the Tsunami, and of course with a little bit of time dedicated to love, growing food and getting spiritually psychedelic ;P
It's a fun record written on an ukelele by the Ocean. It's about taking control of our lives and the world around us through compassion, joy and a kick-ass attitude based on a stubborn commitment to righteousness and compassion.

We've been talking about this way too long sister,
I want to see this succeed
And you know I won't just be sitting there on the sidelines
I'll be out there planting seeds
She says, "Love Ain't Love if it Ain't For Everything"
That's why she's my baby, that's why she's my Queen
Love For All Living Things
So we started with a plot in a neighbour's yard
With a couple of friends and a bottle of wine,
you know it wasn't to hard
You don't know how good it feels,
To eat your own tomatoes and string beans
And it all began with a story that she told me,
about some punks down in Mexico City
They had no jobs so they got their hands dirty
In abandoned lots making Gardens of Plenty
Track Name: Stubborn Man
Let me dispel a few myths about this land that we call home,
That it's all good here that democracy is still strong
'cause there's this man with his devil blue eyes
who will use his power and clout to demonize
Those who stand for Nature and the First People's of this Land
I'm a Stubborn Man
Because I Believe Love Will Conquer Hate
Oh but Let's Not Wait!
Profits over People is never right,
Though they say all boats are lifted by the tide
Some get richer while the others struggle just to stay alive
And Native Rights get pushed to the sidelines
All Babylon wants is to build prisons and pipelines
We'll break through their control, We see through their lies!
Peace, Love and Justice!
And you know deep within your heart and soul
That Love is the Answer, it's been said before
And to Live with Love as the Highest
Love as the Highest!
And I feel I must respond when I see the need
To make a stand for what is Right and what's Wrong
Because Life is Precious and Free
And needs to be Free from Harm
And Free to Thrive
Free to Get Along and Free to Love!
Track Name: Miss Sugar Love
I don't care no more what your daddy do,
I'm not marrying him I'm marrying you
I miss the way you comb my hair
and the place is a mess now that you're not there
Miss Sugar Love, you sure are great
Please tell me baby, I'm not too late
Miss Sugar Love, you sure are fine
Don't you punish me for being so deaf, dumb and blind
Miss Sugar Love, Miss Sugar Love
You're on my mind!
When I met you baby I was just a boy,
I wasn't Captain Kirk, I was Leonard Nimoy
What could I know about loving a girl,
but I've grown up now and been around the world
I'm Gonna Praise the Lord…
If she takes me back...
I'm Gonna Praise the Lord!
Track Name: Stars Over Tokyo
Midnight and I opened my eyes
What a sight to behold! Stars Over Tokyo
Would you believe? Stars Over Tokyo
Never before in my long long life
Have I seen Cassiopeia over Tokyo
The Belt of Orion over Tokyo
What could it mean to see beyond the streets and the screens,
that once flashed over Tokyo
To awake from a dream of Tokyo and everything
The birthplace of stars begins right where you are
In the shroud of the night over Tokyo
Where Andromeda's tied over Tokyo
Track Name: Kingdom Come
Don't believe that the Fate of the World
will remain in the hands of the Unchosen Few,
For the Forces of Peace, Love & of Truth
Are more than just Me and You
You won't find this in the mainstream media or news,
They are not in the business of truth
You must look much deeper than you've looked before
To find the Hidden Proof!
'Til the Kingdom has Come!!
To end an age of suffering and greed,
there are things that we must understand
The way to Heaven is written within
each Woman and every Man
Take strength in numbers
and the belief that the Truth
will reveal our Majesty
The Lord has granted His Grace & His Love
amongst the Wolves & the Sheep
