Track Name: Attitude Of Gratitude
I used to have a problem with my attitude,
I was nervous, I was scared, I was mad at you
I found a better way to live my life,
when I realized that the magic comes from inside

Now my Attitude (my attitude), it's Gratitude (it's gratitude)
Oh my Attitude, (my attitude) is Gratitude
I've got Attitude (oh yea you do), it's Gratitude (gratitude)
Oh I've got Attitude (attitude), it's Gratitude!

I’m thankful, for the big things in my life
I am grateful, for all the little things,
I am thankful, for my friends and family,
I am grateful, that I can sing

Oh my Attitude (my attitude), it's Gratitude (it's gratitude)
I said my Attitude, (my attitude) is Gratitude
I've got Attitude (oh yea you do), it's Gratitude (gratitude)
Oh I've got Attitude (attitude), it's Gratitude!

~~ INSTRIMENTAL ~~

It's a uncertain future, so keep a good humour
we've all got our problems, the challenge is to solve them
there's power in each moment, learn to set your focus
there's beauty everywhere, all you've got to do is care!

Oh my Attitude (my attitude), it's Gratitude (it's gratitude)
I said my Attitude, (my attitude) is Gratitude
I've got Attitude (oh yea you do), it's Gratitude (gratitude)
Oh I've got Attitude (attitude), it's Gratitude!

Ooooohh oooh hooooo ah ha ha ha ha

My attitude (my attitude) it's gratitude (it's gratitude),
My attitude (my attitude) it's gratitude

I am thankful,
oh I am grateful
I am so thankful,
I am so grateful

For the earth, for the sky, for our bodies, for the water,
for this life, for you, for touch, for feeling, for abundance
and space and everything that this world encompasses,
we are all so blessed
and I invite you in this moment to look around and feel into your heart,
and see what you are grateful for,
thank you
Track Name: 8 Hugs A Day
I went to a new age doctor,
she taught me a thing or two, about our bodies and living,
about loving one another, our sisters and brothers,
and how to keep ourselves in tune... (she told me)

8 hugs a day, keeps us healthy, keeps us happy,
8 hugs a day, every day
Hug your neighbours, hug your friends, hug your family whenever you see them
Hug strangers, till they’re family.
8 Hugs a day, 8 hugs a day, 8 hugs a day, every day

I climbed the highest mountain peak, in the land
to reach that temple of old.
I spoke with a wise guru man, and his brothers
and learned what they had learned... (they told me)

8 hugs a day, keeps us healthy, keeps us happy,
8 hugs a day, every day
Hug your neighbours, hug your friends, hug your family whenever you see them
Hug strangers, till they’re family.
8 Hugs a day, 8 hugs a day, 8 hugs a day, every day

So I hope you’ll hug me, today, and again tomorrow
We all need our daily dosage of human contact,
it’s a simple prescription

8 hugs a day, keeps us healthy, keeps us happy,
8 hugs a day, every day
Hug your neighbours, hug your friends, hug your family whenever you see them
Hug strangers, till they’re family.
8 Hugs a day, 8 hugs a day, 8 hugs a day, every day
Track Name: The Waters Rose
I used to love the ocean, but the world’s in motion,
I lost my homeland, underneath the waves.
I remember the honey bees, I miss those ancient trees,
I saw the waters rise, and wash away the world.
I saw New York sinking, oh lord what were we thinking?
building up and up, with no regard for the land.

And the waters rose, the waters rose,
the waters rose, and they washed away, they washed away the world!

Ohhhh, the mothers crying, ten thousand children dying,
oh the waves keep rising, up and up and up some more.

And the waters rose, the waters rose,
the waters rose, and they washed away, they washed away the world!

aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh ooooooooohhhhhhhh
ooooooooohhhhhhhh aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

Our great blue planet, a sea of plastic,
gave me a new perspective, of our fucked up society
We all saw it coming, oh the ice-caps melting,
if only we had stopped in time...

But the waters rose, oh the waters rose,
and they washed away, they washed away the world!

aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh ooooooooohhhhhhhh
aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh ooohhh
Track Name: Free Culture (feat. Willisist)
You don't need no money to sing,
you don't need no money to dance,
you don't need no money to share your love,
with a special man!

Free culture, set it free!
Free culture, you and me!
Free culture, hug a tree!
Free culture, free culture!

Free culture, set it free!
Free culture, you and me!
Free culture, hug a tree!
Free culture, free culture!

Sing a lot of songs,
dance at every chance,
Make a lot of time to make a lot of love,
and romance!

Free culture, set it free!
Free culture, you and me!
Free culture, hug a tree!
Free culture, free culture!

Free culture, set it free!
Free culture, you and me!
Free culture, hug a tree!
Free culture, free culture!

Fuck the sham economy,
you have personal autonomy,
indulge in free adventure,
sing songs and dance in nature,
sing songs and dance in nature,
sing songs and dance in nature,
we're creating culture!


Willisist:
A lot of people think they free but they ain't,
they just trapped like a bubble in a paint,
but they did it to themselves, when they listened to the spells,
of the people tell them how they should behave.

A lot of people say they feel trapped,
cuz they listen to the people tell them how to act.
The only prison is your mind, if you seek then you find,
to define you are you and that is that.

A lot of people they ain't even seeking,
all they do is think of what they doing on the weekend.
And I'm ashamed to admit it, I'm a hypocritic critic,
it's acidic how I spit it when I'm speaking.

A lot of people they already get it,
they taking the high road and loving where they headed,
So be a bringer of gifts and not a vulture,
that's how we can all enjoy this free culture, go get it!


creating culture, a peaceful culture
a healthy culture, a musical culture


one, two, one, two, three, four!

Free culture, set it free!
Free culture, you and me!
Free culture, community!
Free culture, free culture!

Free culture, set it free!
Free culture, let it be!
Free culture, community!
Free culture!

Time is precious, pick up an instrument,
dance, sing, play with your friends.
This is where the real richness lies,
in all of our hearts
