Mikey Green With Certain Anarchy

Next Album Songs

The Music and Songwriting Next Album

We’re parking songs/lyrics for the next album here. I gave my cousin Roy Lee (Springfield, Oregon) our last album/CD, Certain Anarchy II. He calls me to coffee.

Roy Lee: “Mike, that was the darkest music I’ve ever heard.”

Mikey: “I was in Southern California, surrounded by people who are dying from over-indulgence. Exactly what kind of songs/music did you expect me to write about this experience among them?”

Roy Lee:  “I don’t know, it just doesn’t sound like you. You were my Youth Leader. That music just made me feel weird.”

Me: “Roy I’m an expressionist/confession music artist. I’ll paint and record what I see. As you former Youth Leader, I’ll look for better things to write about.”

Roy Lee: “Well, I don’t want to tell you stuff. But that would be great.”

Line-up of Songs/Lyrics for Certain Anarchy III

 

Peaceful Warrior

On an island lost in space / a peaceful warrior takes the stage / with some eyes focused / some unkind / hearts filled with hope / some are blind

This gentle agent knows her place / she is an angel born to wage /

a peaceful struggle of her time / hearts will listen / hearts will find

 

pre-chorus:

oh a gentle angel  / sail us away

oh a better angel / to a peaceful way

 

chorus:

oh – o – o – oh / angels come as peaceful warriors

oh – o – o – oh / angles teach us how to fly

listen up now / she restores us / to a yonder by and by

2v

There was a man / he tilled the earth / His hopeful visions / grew in trees

He told his family / we shall eat / our future’s planted in the seeds

But only he could see the worth / of little plants among the weeds

He told his family don’t retreat / to an angel he now pleads

 

pre-chorus:

oh come near us angel  – dressed just as a dove

oh our peaceful warrior – teach us how to love

 

chorus:

oh – o – o – oh / angels come as peaceful warriors

oh – o – o – oh / angles teach us how to fly

listen up now / she restores us / to a yonder by and by

 

3v

On the mountain of all time / God calls the weak to up from the line

My blessed children you are free / I sent my angels to the meek

The earth below him bleeds like wine / trampled / damaged by the swine

The angel warrior / now she weeps / for all who would not live in peace

(confounded bridge):

will we find her wings to rise / so high above the fray / we must not wait until we realize / peaceful warriors lead the way / so let’s fly / away / love will always / find a way / we dare not make / the angels cry / because we spent / another day / upon the ground  … / kicking the same ol’ things around /

We were born to fly-y–eey-i

come on and fly-y–eey-i

spread wings and fly-y–eey-i

let peace ring / within all hearts / join hands and sing / oh how we start

FULL STOP – acapella 

with the song of a peaceful warrior

 

pre-chorus:

oh gentle warrior –  we now sing

of our peace beneath your wings

chorus:

oh – o – o – oh / angels come as peaceful warriors

oh – o – o – oh / angels teach us how to fly

listen up / or you’ll destroy us / and in destruction wonder why

You did fly-y–eey-i

come on and fly-y–eey-i

spread wings and fly-y–eey-i

We’re born to fly-y–eey-i

Let’s just fly-y–eey-i

She helps us fly-y–eey-i

 

Playground Song

Step into a better day / Hear bees buzzin’ the time away

Pick flowers in soft sunlight / Skinny dip on a star-lit night

There’s so much more to see / So much more that we can be

If we hold a hand / Smile at a stranger so they will understand

The world spins without makin’ a sound / We’re all just on a blue merry-go-round

laugh like children with joy in our hearts / We can heal any broken parts

There’s so much to do / So much love in me and you

If we hold a hand / Befriend a stranger so they will understand

 

Chorus

One plus one makes two / Two plus two means four

Four can change the world / As we add so many more

Peace will light our path / ‘cause there is magic in the math

When we give our hearts away / It multiplies along the way

Hear a mighty chorus singing / A song first just sung by one

Oh the joy has just begun / On this playground in the sun

2nd verse

See that man on the subway / He’s got 3 kids and bills to pay

His worry looks like a distant frown / He heard this song when you sat down

‘Cause there is so much life to live / So much love that we can give

If we take a hand / Then every stranger will understand

That it’s a brand new day / Birds are singing with so much to say

Every heart is a light / That can break through the darkest night

 

Confounded Bridge

Angels are here all among us / Just look around you’ll see their face

And you will hear their songs of hope and love and trust

In this playground of their grace

Sing it now and fly away

(Music Break)

Chorus

One plus one makes two / Two plus two means four

Four can change the world / As we add so many more

Peace will light our path / ‘cause there is magic in the math

When we give our hearts away / It multiplies along the way

Hear a mighty chorus singing / A song first just sung by one

Oh the joy has just begun / On this playground in the sun

 

Oh Elissa

(Cell Phone Recording for Rehearsal)

 

 

Ghosts who Follow Me

(silly cam phone recording for our radio show)

Goof wit a cam phone

This fullfills my bet with Timothy P. Jones I gave him 13 points Pats vs Ravens I win he shaves his head, he won so I shaved my beard. Here's a short video and a song to prove it. Fooking Patriots….
