The Water Breaks
By: Anne Carol

The Water Breaks
The water breaks,
The tide goes,
It’s time for living.
The water breaks,
The tide goes,
It’s time to begin.
It’s time to learn again,
It’s time.
It’s time to breathe in,
It’s time.

This may be the greatest moment you’ve ever known.
The world awaits your newborn cry.
You are not alone.

The water breaks,
The tide goes,
It’s time to try again.
The water breaks,
The tide goes,
It’s time to believe.
It’s time to play the game,
It’s time.
It’s time to speak your name,
It’s time.

This may be the greatest moment you’ve ever known.
The world awaits your open eyes.
To know it’s not alone.

If Jesus Met Mohammed
By: Ed Perrone

If Jesus met Mohammed
What do you think they'd say?
Would they chat about the weather
Just to pass the time of day?
Would they wander down by the schoolyard
And watch the children play?
If Jesus met Mohammed
One fine day.

If they both ran into Moses
Hangin' out at the traffic light
Would he say, "Hey, guys, I'm buying,
Let's go out and have a bite"?
Would they laugh about the good times?
Would they stay up half the night?
Swappin' stories, tellin' jokes,
It just seems right.

And would they take a stroll into the park, Enjoy the summer breeze?
Kick a soccer ball around the field
Then relax beneath the trees?
Would they sing a song together
About joy and peace and love?
And maybe say a little prayer
To heaven up above?

If Jesus met Mohammed
What do you think they'd say?
I like to think they'd hit it off,
Make plans for another day.
Bring along their buddy Moses,
Everything's gonna be okay,
Three old friends just sharing good times All the day.

I think they'd take a stroll into the park, Enjoy the summer breeze.
Kick a soccer ball around the field,
Then relax beneath the trees.
They'd probably sing a song together
About joy and peace and love.
And maybe say a little prayer
To heaven up above.
And maybe say a little prayer
To heaven up above.

Test of Faith
By: Kashy Keegan

Sweet child is singing
We shall overcome
I want to believe him
But my hope seems outdone
By all that I’m seeing
No justice in sight
So I can’t help but wonder
is God on our side?

If there’s someone up there
Then why watch us cry?
Witness such pain
As the innocent die
Where lies the justice?
Where lies the love?
It should be here on earth
And not just heaven -
Heaven above

People are dying
As the blind lead the blind
Killing each other
For power and pride
We pray for salvation
But powers just lie
And I can’t help but wonder
is God on our side?

If there’s someone up there
Then why watch us cry?
Witness such pain
As the innocent die
Where lies the justice?
Where lies the love?
It should be here on earth
And not just heaven -
Heaven above

I know today
I’ve gotta keep my faith
But I am tested by the sight
Of the crime we see
Against humanity
And the evil that we fight
So I can’t help but question lord
Will you hear our prayers tonight?

If there’s someone up there
Then why watch us cry?
Witness such pain
As the innocent die
Where lies the justice?
Where lies the love?
It should be here on earth
And not just heaven -
Heaven above

Oh! Oud
tell me about the past
about love's troubles
about our loved ones
and those who were blown
Oh! Oud
Oh! Oud

Take me with you, my love
to the land of birds
to the edge of the world
to my mothers embrace
to a nameless country
Oh! Oud
Oh! Oud

Oh! Oud

with happiness
and forget
that gone are the days
where love had barriers
Oh! Oud
Oh! Oud

Take me with you, my love
to the land of birds
to the edge of the world
to my mothers embrace
to a nameless country
Oh! Oud

Something Nice (For The World)
By: K-Gi Scarlett

Tell me SOMETHING NICE or, say nothing at all (Say it twice,) make

Nightspell
By: Merry Citoli

There is a faint sound in the distance It’s drawing near with no
resistance It must be felt by out hearts Or fear will keep us apart

There is a voice in the valley
It rings through ghettos, streets and alleys It must reach deep to our
souls So as a nation we’re whole

Nightspell, you know we need a wishing well Nightspell, to look beyond
the lies they sell In one moment quick as a flash The stars whisk by
as they dart and they dash We find ourselves spinning the magic’s
beginning We’re under the powers that be, Nightspell

So wave the wand of wisdom
And give us wings to fly
As we touch the cloak of night time
And soar across the sky, Nightspell

Nightspell, you know we need a wishing well Nightspell, to look beyond
the lies they sell In one moment quick as a flash The stars whisk by
as they dart and they dash

We find ourselves spinning the magic’s beginning
We’re under the power’s that be, Nightspell Nightspell, you know we
need a wishing well Nightspell, to look beyond the lies they sell
Well, we find ourselves spinning the magic’s beginning We’re under the
powers that be……………..Nightspell

UnHoly War
By Fontain Riddle

It's been an UnHoly war
A passion play
A game with no score
A fools breath away, away
I think I'll get out of this
Before my teeth fall out of my mouth
I think I'll get out of this
Before my hair falls out of my head
I can't wait to wash my sheets
get you out of my bed
It's been an unHoly war
A passion play
A game with no score
A fools breath away, away
I won't need a bloody love no more
Un Holy, Un holy War
I won't need a bloody love no more
Un Holy, Un holy War
I think i will resist Before
my house is not my home
I think I will resist before my life is not my own
I know I won't be missed
I bet I'm better off alone
It's been an unHoly war
A passion play
A game with no score A fools breath away, away
I won't need a bloody War no more
Unholy, Unholy War
I won't need a bloody War
no more un Holy, unholy War

Here With Us Today (for Daniel)
By: Amir Zaki

You spent your life doing what you believed, And that's the highest
place of all, a man can ever reach, Life can be unfair, if seen
individually, But we know there's some balance for life to Be.

You balanced for the angry,
And your work has been received,
You balanced for the forceful,
You confirmed our peace belief.

Daniel our friend, we see what you've done, And you'll always be
alive, in Everyone, Who can see the sunrise, and live another day...
So Daniel you're here with us today...
Yes Daniel you're here with us today,
Years may pass, but you'll BE WITH US that day, And Daniel, you're
here with me today.

Your family's called Pearl
And I can see that it's true,
It's like they always knew,
That you will shine.

Everyone of us, sees you with awe,
Like a hero taking a fall,
For the ones he leaves behind

Song of the Woods
By: Melissa Rivers

What's the gaze that turns my colors into this a mass of healing grass
that adds some universe of bright to this human state of mind and wich
converts this winter into spring with your wings.

It's hard to say when words are not enough It's hard to paint the
fourth dimension poetry is the science of the soul as your passion is
the fire of my song.

The moon appeared, desire is flying
I want to leave my fear behind
and ride the path of the universe
were all the verses find your eyes.

And right through them I'll cross that magic door and right through
them I'll finally kiss your soul and right through them I'm willing to
adore this fields of bliss inside your fire has just begun.

And right through them I'll cross that magic door and right through
them I'll finally kiss your soul and right through them I'm willing to
adore this fields of bliss inside your fire has just begun.

Make it Real
By: Bizzy Bender

Take this heart of mine
And lay it bare
Take this love I claim
And make it real

For what shall I gain, if I give not?
For what is this faith? If my love’s in vain

Take this vision
And give it wings
Let these words hit their mark
That the children may sing!

For what shall I gain, if I give not?
For what is this faith? If my love’s in vain

I’ve been weeping far too long
So little has changed
Send me out now into your world
Let me stake Your claim

Durim
By: Jeton Murtishi

"Durim" is an Albanian word roughly translated as perserverance or
steadfastness. I dedicate this composition to the memory of Daniel Pearl and
to all of the victims of these troubling times. May we all have the courage
and "durim" to see beyond our differences, and to unite in our shared
humanity.

9.11 911
By: James Wunderlich

All wounds will heal it just takes time
Nine Eleven Nine One One
Towers in the sky on a cloudless day
Towers in the air fills me up with pride
Before I fall down

Nine Eleven Nine One One
Brothers and sisters goin' to work inside
Bringing down a dream of towers in the sky
Makes a people cry

They say that someday all wounds will heal
It just takes time
And nothing ever lasts forever
How did this come to be
And why is there so much hate
If we turn the other cheek now is it too late

When Will We
By: Eliot Osborn

When will we when will we wake up and just get real
When do we tell each other just how it feels
When will this end

When will we just show each other what we got inside
Unbolt the doors and throw ‘em open wide oh babe
When will this

Game of keeping each other guessin’ and tryin’ to be so tough
Leave us with the same impression Haven’t we had enough ?

When will we when do we do what we can’t do now
When do we say what we just don’t know how to say
When will this end

When will we When will we finally make up our minds
Not put it off for some other time oh babe
When will we

Come to some sort of decision where we want to go
Are we waitin’ for permission? I want to know

When will we when will we give up this masquerade
Just let this be some mistake we have made
When will this end

When this is over it’ll be so easy to seejust how wrong this is
When this is over will we both be wondering
Why have we waited as long as we did ?

When will we when will we wake up and see the sun
When will this fighting be over and done
When will this end
When will this end
When will this end
When will this end

I Won't Forget
By: Stavia Blunt

This song was inspired by the beauty and wildnerness of Africa (Kenya), where I
grew up; by the generosity of the people who taught me what true spiritual
beauty was, so often demonstrated by those with few material posessions. The
song relates how such qualities can be healing even in the event of hardship or
tragedy, and reminds us not to forget what is really important in this life.
Love, kindness and the ability to forgive.

Softly
By: Robb Mills

A short musical work for guitar, cello, and vocals. The lyrics express feelings
of hope and gratitude towards someone who has permanently and positively
touched the singers life.

Lyrics: "Softly I will stay right here, watching you. Pray that I'll meet your
kind again someday. Softly I sleep, don't wake me, so that I keep this dream of
you.
Only hope I will be just like you. Gently I will believe, as you believed in
me. Softly I sleep, don't wake me, so that I'll keep this dream of you."

Burn
By: Mel Watson

We burn brightly today
we burn oh how we burn
One word spoken between two
oh how we burn yeah

and I sing so I can make a place
where there's nothing
but love between.

People come in two
build a life
with dreams and colors so bright
Sometimes we run
life is crazy
and love takes so long

And I fall to the ground
and I lay at your feet yeah
and I prey to every god
to Jesus, and Allah and Krishna

Cos we can change the face of life
Just by looking at another point of view
cos there's so much to know
and so little to fear in love
We can make it through.
yeah.......

We need to say a Prayer
By: Leslie Freitas
It’s on the new paper and TV,
Any time, anywhere, any one can see,
There’s killing or some kind of blast,
Some where is the world, how long will it last?
We need to pray, we need to say a prayer.
 
Look around anywhere in the world you’ll see,
Rape, killing, suffering and poverty,
So much of pain, so much of fear,
Blood, tears are shed in the world out here,
We need to pray, we need to say a prayer.
 
Everyone join us, let’s say a prayer,
Everybody, everyone in the world out there,
Let’s pray for peace, one world in peace,
Where love exist, hate we resist,
We need to pray, we need to say a prayer.
 
Religions of the world no matter what your faith,
We all believe in God that great,
No matter what’s your faith or mine,
We all believe in God divine,
We need to pray, we need to say a prayer.
 
Nations of the world, look on your soil,
There’s hatred fueling blood to boil,
There’s terror of war, violence and crime,
Religion an excuse used all the time,
We need to pray, we need to say a prayer.
 
Come prayer with me (2) on bended knee, lets prayer for while,
Pray hand in hand, for a better land, for every man, woman and child
Pray for better tomorrow, with no pain and sorrow,
And the world will be a better place to be,
We need to pray, we need to say a prayer.
 
Take a look at Mother Nature, She’s pretty, cool, and calm,
Why is it in human nature, to cause so much of harm,
If the elements of nature, can live in peace and harmony,
Humans are destroying their future, with atrocity on humanity. (2)
 
Come prayer with me (2) on bended knee, lets prayer for while,
Pray hand in hand, for a better land, for every man, woman and child
Pray for better tomorrow, with no pain and sorrow,
And the world will be a better place to be,
We need to pray, we need to say a prayer.

Never Let Terror Strike The Heart
By: Leslie Freitas

It’s just another ordinary day, in a way of life a simple way,
Everybody going about their lives, it’s just the same as every day,
People go to work, children go to school,
All those daily errands to run, working a busy schedule,
Suddenly you face reality, it is staring in your face,
Your every day life is a horrified terrified place,
When terror strikes the heart,

What a painful site to see, so shocking to the heart,
So much of destruction, innocent families and lives torn apart,
Brave hearts in uniform, sacrifice lay down their lives,
Heroes you will never know, who did their jobs if it cost their lives,
Atrocity, animosity against humanity, it is starring in your face,
Your everyday life is horrified terrified place,
When terror strikes the heart.

Different kinds of Storms, crimes and wars, are just a few terrors of a different kind,
But the worst of all, deadliest of all is terror planned by the human mind,
Terror plans kill and destroy, rape away your love, peace and joy,
Spreading fear, spreading hate, we cannot let terror dictate our fate,
We need solidarity of humanity as family of one race,
We need to stand hand in hand, united we stand to make our world a better place,
Never let terror strike the heart.

Terror has no place of origin, no time, no face, no particular religion,
Terror uses means of every kind, it ultimate goal destruction and division,
People of the world, we only have one life, one world,
Please do not let, we cannot let, terror terrorize our life our world,
It’s up to you, it up to me, nations of humanity,
Don’t let our everyday lives be a horrified terrified place,
Never let terror strike the heart.

This is a global cause of one world you understand,
You could in any part of the world, in any nation on Gods green land
You could be at home or at work, or club or a 5 star hotel,
You could be on the move somewhere, when terror strikes you can never tell,
In our world of uncertainty, we cannot let terror live to be
It up to you, it up to me nations of humanity,
Don’t let our everyday lives be a horrified terrified place,
Never let terror strike the heart.

One World In Harmony
By: Leslie Freitas

Do you dream, to live in one world, a world in harmony,
In peaceful coexistence, of all humanity,
Where we live and we let live, the life of humanity,
One world together, one world in harmony.

This world, it’s our home, the only place to be,
The only place to live in, as one world one family,
Where life is worth the living and living is worth one’s life
Living to together one world in harmony,

I dream, to live in one world, a world for all to be,
Where life’s got no discrimination, we live in dignity,
No killing, destruction, bloodshed with carnage what have we got that we never had,
Live, let live life together, one world in harmony.

Yes we can dream, to live in one world, make it a reality,
It starts with a words and actions, our little bit, it starts with you and me.
It’s up to you, it up to me, it up to us one world family
One world family of unity, one world in Harmony

We can only coexist, if exist, to live together as one,
One world family in harmony, one world under the sun,
When will we do the best, we can, to understand our fellowmen,
When will we stop, to destroy, humanity’s love, peace and joy,
It’s up to us to realize there’s no terror to terrorize,
When we patronize humanity, one world in harmony

Come on all you nations, all you nations of the world,
Let make, our world a better place, for every boy and every girl,
Let do the best we can, for the future generation, the children of our fellowmen,
So they may see the reality of one world in harmony.

Dear Daniel
By: Tova & Lisa Manor
I want to tell you that I’m sorry
That you can’t see me laugh or cry
I never got to call you daddy
And I don’t know the reason why
Why injustice overtakes us
Why the world is so unfair

Dear Daniel
Do you miss me from up there?
Dear Daniel
I promise you that I’m aware
That you must have loved me once
And that’s enough for me

They say you couldn’t wait to hold me
And couldn’t wait for me to know
All the things you planned to teach me
All the things I could have known
If you saw me, which you won’t
If I knew you, which I don’t
I didn’t get my chance

Dear Daniel
Would you recognize me now?
Dear Daniel
Could you turn back time somehow?
I would trade a thousand years for one day
If I could touch your face

Years go by and I know that tears, they don’t last forever
Pain never leaves

Humanity
By: Leslie Freitas

Here we are, to this day and hour,
Look what we have done, in vein so far,
Do we see our world, have we looked around?
Can you tell me what we see, do we feel astound?

Are we Humans? Are we able?
To have an open heart and mind are we capable?
To Live and let live, not kill or deceive,
Give a human helping hand, with no vicious plan?

Is there human grace, in our human race?
Consumed in hate to desecrate the human face?
Are we unstoppable, are we unstable,
To embrace our race, make our world peaceful place,

It’s a complex time, with violence and crime,
Do we ever care; human beings are dying out there?
Can we explain what we stand to gain?
Is there victory or loss in suffering and pain?

Needless loss of life, will the day arrive,
We realize human dignity, its essence of life?
Will the day ever come, when there is no harm?
No fighting, no wars and there’s peace and calm,

Can we pledge today, can we take a stand?
To save our human kind, save our fellow man,
It’s all begins with us, each one of us,
To help humanity, with dignity, we must adjust.

We need grace to leave in peace; we need peace to live at ease,
We need passion for compassion; we need hope, love and dignity,
We need Mercy and Charity, We kindness and tolerance,
We need Honor for one and other; we need hope, love and dignity,
We need love not hate, let’s spread love why wait,
We need Peace not war, what good is War for,
We need Hope not despair, we need hope everywhere,
We need Justice not Prejudice, Justice can achieve this
We need Honor and respect and our world will connect,
From the North and the South, From East and the West, Come together everybody, for a peaceful fest,
Come in peace, hope and dignity, it’s Harmony of humanity.
Transcend boundaries and nationalities,
With Dignity and Harmony of humanity. (3)
