about

Anthony Sweet St. Catharines, Ontario

I'd like to welcome you here...to pause with me...to be here in this moment...in this special moment of being. Allow yourself to be here. For this is the moment that you and I are truly awake, alive.
May we be an encouragement to one another, for though our paths look very different we are still all human and we need to try and bring out the Divine spark in one another...let's be in kindness.

Track Name: Rise Above
I wore the robe of the guilty
i let this tyranny take me
to the bottom of the ocean.

no more will i suffocate you
come out come out into a free world
and I will not appose you
you and we shall become one
Become...

I rise above the clutter
and i see the sun for the very first time
I no longer shutter
I see myself for the very first time

angel in bloom
so often torn in two
angel in bloom
that's what I am

No more this fleshly crucifixion
no longer shall you be fed to the lions
you and I will have the answers
the answers
Track Name: You are with me now
You are with me now
You are with me now
within this sacred moment
I feel your arms around me
I give my fear and worry to you now
for you're big enough
and here with you
this is my souls home
Track Name: Taking my time
I'm taking my time
I'm taking my time
no longer running down the road
to better this or better that
I'm taking my time
I'm taking my time

For the grass is lovely shade of green right under my feet
and oh it feels so good, right under my feet

I'm taking my time
I'm taking my time
no longer stepping on your hands
not bowing to your high demands
I'm taking my time

and there's room right here
right next to me
come feel the earth
remember the sun
it feels so good
Track Name: The Joining
Your wooden fingers
and felt before
and now they feel no more

Your misery eyes
once lit your face
and how you shown before

yet you see through me llike a ghost
and you miss what you want most
do you feel at all
do you see at all
are you free at all
as we speak

Will you heal at all
will you wake up at all
please give me a sign
Track Name: Elephant
Stand in the light
show your teeth
jump through the fire
for the crowds

and then you'll be tied, immobilized
only for 99 percent of the time

so don't step out of line
don't you step on his toes
you'll be warned
you'll be hit
you will bleed
but it's all for the show

Forced to do tricks every night
don't you stray for we know where you sleep
no no mistakes
watch your back
or we'll add one more stripe where it hurts

elephant has no where to go
for the circus has gone on without you
Track Name: Wake up
ooooo....ohhhh....ahhhhh ..... :)

wake up little child come out of hiding

I don't want to hurt you anymore

I want to see the world through your eyes
Track Name: The Getaway
I've walked and I've danced and I will die as well
I've heard your song passing by your gates

and I think i'm lost
i've turned away
but my minds just to preoccupied with nothing
I've gone and made my getaway
but i've gone astray and this silence is telling me something

I'm washed and I'm dressed and I'll play my part
and I will spit and i will choke
but remain the same
Track Name: For a friend
Be and I will be with you
you are a light house in the storm
you will over come this storm
you will over come this storm

Don't fear the flame for it will make you brighter
don't fear the wall for you will climb upon it
and you will see from higher gournd

and the sun will shine upon you

Be and i will be with you
you are a beacon to the worn
you will lead them on
and you will lead them

don't fear the flame for it will make you brighter
eyes of hope will open up
Track Name: The Bloody River
There's holes in me
that tend to bleed running down my sleeve
it's mixing with
the heavy rain
tell me who's the winner

and here in I am swept away
here in I am swept away
here in I am swept away
in this bloody river
I am swept

I'll lift my head
I'll lift my hand
try to get your attention
for I need your touch
no fabricated touch
no voice overdub
Track Name: Stitches
Under the knife again
well can you
can you find it there

can you find it there dear doctor
find it there and cut it out
find it there dear doctor
find it there and later sow me up

i want to walk out of here
find it there and cut it out
i want to walk out of here
find it there and later sow me up

and maybe, maybe, maybe I will stand here clutching my side

the search has begun again
well are your gloves on and your coveralls?
Track Name: The bell
I want to tell you that i love you
and with what i say I don't mean to hurt you
I just can't go on like this
cause I'm dying on the inside

yes at times the sun is shining somewhere up above
but where I've been walking it has ceased to long ago

So I will turn and reach for you
and I will turn them down
that crazy crowd and I will run to you
maybe just maybe there'll be peace for me there
in your arms i'll find refuge

Then the battle that rages in me might cease to be
cause I fear I'm disappearing, I'm digging my own grave
and no bell will save me
only one option remains

oh....even if i fall from your grace
Track Name: Stained shoes
well do you
do you feel the
feel the tears fall
fall from heaven
fall...

well do you feel the
feel the tears fall from heaven
fall from heaven
gathering as puddles at your feet

does it stain your shoes?
does it stain your shoes?
If i stay long
no I wont
I won't bear it any longer

well do you feel the
feel the heart sigh
up in heaven
causing tear drops to gather at my feet
Track Name: Lift eachother
Let's choose to love love love
love our brothers and our sisters
we are the same flesh and blood

and you say
well let's give of our time
and you say how
well let's let our smiles shine
and maybe then

we will lift
we will lift
we will lift eachother to the light

Let's choose to hold hold hold
eachothers dreams with gentleness
we are together on this road

and we say come
there is room by my side
and we say come
oh be brave do not hide
and take my hand and lift me up

we will lift
we will lift
we will lift eachother to the light
Track Name: Everytime you show yourself
Every time you show yourself
every time you show yourself
every time
I'll let your image float away
oh I'll let your image float away
Oh I'll let your image float away
....float away....

For you have no power over me
Track Name: Zephyr
Riding down the highway
the pumpkins on fire tonight
gazing at the light show
as the sun turns it in for the night

here's the west wind
time to ride the zephyr
jump on brother
it's time to ride the zephyr

Blazing for the third time
my mind's being sung a lullabye
passing those grain filled churches
inside there is no space so we pass by
Track Name: The wind and her voices
I've been drifting
drifting for days
going nowhere
driven by the waves
driven mad by the wind and her voices

The blind they come
they come for me
they want to feed on me
and they don't want my company
if only we could see

only blue
forever blue
only blue

I've been drifting
drifting for days
going nowhere
driven by the waves
driven mad by the wind and her voices
