DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

My next CD to be released by Tate Publishing will be Spirits In The Silence. This CD documents my transition from liberty activist to solutionist to spiritualist but it is prior to my Course In Miracles studies. Below are the lyrics to the songs on this CD. I will post a link to the CD when it is available. Music genres range from rock'n'roll to folk, country to blues, reggae to…rhumba(!)

RUNNIN AIN’T NO WAY TO BE FREE

Runnin down that dusty road

Runnin hot, you’re runnin’ cold

But deep down you know you can’t run away

Runnin’ like a little lost child

Runnin’ free, you’re runnin’ wild

But there’s a price you’ve got to pay

Runnin’ with the wind, Rollin’ like the river

Runnin’ through the darkness to the sea

Runnin’ until the day that you discover

That this runnin’ ain’t no way to be free

I set out to track you down

Followed your steps to the edge of town

Then I turned around and I came back home

There’s one thing that I have found and

Like a boomerang you’ll come back around

‘cause there ain’t no one that really likes to be alone

Runnin’ with the wind, Rollin’ like the river

Runnin’ through the darkness to the sea

Runnin’ until the day that you discover

That this runnin’ ain’t no way to be free

For your freedom you’ve been yearnin’

But the thing that you ain’t been learnin’

Freedom comes with responsibility

This ol’ world will sure defeat ya

Unless ya learn what it tries ta teach ya

The way that it’s been tryin ta teach me

Runnin’ with the wind, Rollin’ like the river

Runnin’ through the darkness to the sea

Runnin’ until the day that you discover

That this runnin’ ain’t no way to be free

STEPPIN INTO PARADISE

been fightin the man

with all of my might

to preserve liberty

and do what i thought was right

the man's still there

perhaps he needs to be

peace love and joy

is my new philosophy

steppin into paradise

shedding my skin

steppin into paradise

where i've always been

slipped out of the circus tent

foresaking the show

got no deadlines no pressure

i just let it all go

peace is always at hand

thats what i believe

if you want to go free

just learn how to breathe

steppin into paradise

shedding my skin

steppin into paradise

where i've always been

i'm writing this song

on a rock by the creek

like a fish like a frog

like a boat with a leak

i'm sinkin on down

let life swallow me whole

and spit me on out

with my new ageless soul

steppin into paradise

shedding my skin

steppin into paradise

where i've always been

when night time shall come

so inevitably

please dont shed no saltwater

dont feel sorry for me

life is but a dream

that makes fools of us all

love is forever

we all buried Paul

i'd like to stay longer

but i can hear the angels call

steppin into paradise

shedding my skin

steppin into paradise

where i've always been

steppin into paradise

with the owl and the swan

steppin into paradise

the dream lives on

steppin into paradise

into the zone

steppin into paradise

the wolf's callin me home

EQUANIMITY

Equanimity

walkin around like you're in a dream

you know nothing is real

so why make a big deal?

equanimity

all is in unity

despite all appearant diversities

got no space or time

everything is divine

equanimity

don't get too high or too low

just sit back and enjoy the show

from the outside view

everything is just a part of you

equanimity

so you want to live in bliss?

realize that you are all of this

be above it all

and you can never fall

equanimity

it's an 80 year dream

you can change everything

learn how to just be

and you set yourself free

equanimity

when a stranger comes passin by

feel free to look them in the eye

and move on through

and be them looking back at you

equanimity

injustice sorrow and pain

will dissolve just like the rain

when you give up the fight

and step into the light

of equanimity

everything is alright

the universe is always shinin bright

equanimity

you can't hold back the night

you can't darken the light

of equanimity

Equanimity

LEver9 Rap

Spoken: folks i got somethin ta say so listen up

I wanna clear the air

And ungunk the sea

I wanna drink clean water

No more impurities

I wanna love the land

And live in harmony

Because this land

Was made for you and me

I wanna roam around without showin ID

What good is sacred ground under a tyranny?

No more frankenfood. Let’s bring Monsanto down.

Let’s revoke their patents on the plants and dirt in the ground.

I just want a cabin underneath the sun

Give me the simple life and an old shotgun.

I just want the right to just be me.

When you get right to it, what else could I be?

Don’t want no gadgets. Don’t want no plasma Tv.

I don’t want my home full of stuff from the corporatocracy.

I want to grow some crops in the fertile soil.

I don’t want to be dependent upon anybody’s oil.

Maybe a little rum and some vodka too.

I want to drink a toast to freedom for me and you.

I wanna have a dream. I want to find my way home.

I want a country where the seeds of enlightenment are sown.

I just want a cabin underneath the rain

Give me some shelter and love and i won’t complain

I just want someone to keep me company

Under the beautiful skies where we can all be free

Spoken: John Bush Intro

John Bush RAP!

Look how far we’ve come in this brave new world.

Poison vaccines and psychiatric drugs for every boy and girl.

I just want someone to keep me company

Under the beautiful skies where we can all be free.

Under the beautiful skies where we can all be free.

TEARS OF JOY

in this troubled land

with troubled people

in these troubled times

a light still shines

beneath the lies

and the confusions

under the rubble

shines the divine

there is truth

there is freedom

no effort or force

can ever deny

there is peace

and there is beauty

so mama don't

you hang your head to cry

tears of joy

tears of happiness

a river flows

unto the sea

release your fears

embrace the darkness

peace and wisdom

will always be

America was

a shining city

upon a hill

for all to see

A place that stood

for truth and justice

freedom peace

and liberty

the times have changed

and into darkness

our country slipped

into the mire

but here we stand

and here we gather

to once again

light freedom's fire

tears of joy

tears of happiness

a river flows

unto the sea

GOD IS IN THE SILENCE

god is in the silence

god is in the silence

god is in the silence

in your heart

in your heart

I was looking in desperation for salvation I couldn't find anywhere

then I looked inside the stillness of my own heart and I found god waiting there

god is in the silence

god is in the silence

god is in the silence

in your heart

in your heart

Still your mind with meditation Any method, teacher or guru will do

when you arrive in the peaceful ageless silence God will be revealed to you

god is in the silence

god is in the silence

god is in the silence

in your heart

in your heart

i used to ramble town to town

searchin for anything everywhere i dont know

now my path has led me to a beautiful nowhere

because there's no place else to go

because

god is in the silence

god is in the silence

god is in the silence

in your heart

in your heart

I FEEL THE BLUES

feelin broken up inside

looking for a place to hide

rode on down to the river bed

haunted by the things we said

dark clouds followin me all around

sunny days have all left town

weepin willow mirrors the sound

of this song that i am layin down

now its just me and my guitar

tryin to find out just where we are

guess i aint got nothin left to lose

but i feel the blues

i feel the blues

when you got nothin but the blues

that's a kind of freedom too

when your entire world turns black

you got nothing left they can take back

wasnt her fault it wasnt mine

we just reached the end of the line

doesnt have to be a reason

for everything there is a season

now its just me and my guitar

tryin to find out just where we are

guess i aint got nothin left to lose

but i feel the blues

i feel the blues

if she came back to me again

i guess i'd just let her on in

this world's too tough a place

to give up love to try to save face

but for now i just dont know

so its down the dusty road i go

flowin as the river flows

driftin as the wicked wind blows

now its just me and my guitar

tryin to find out just where we are

guess i aint got nothin left to lose

but i feel the blues

i feel the blues

BIG BROTHER SONG

If Big Brother is watchin me

He ain’t gonna like what he’s gonna see.

If Big Brother is watchin’ now

We ain’t afraid anyhow

He thinks he’ll make slaves of you and me

But he doesn’t know his history

He underestimates the human race.

We’re gonna dance right on his face.

He can tap our wires and read our emails too.

He can put GPS in our fruit of the looms.

He can hear every single word that we speak.

He’s just a crazy f-in paranoid freak.

If Big Brother is watchin’ me

He ain’t gonna like what he’s gonna see

If Big Brother is watchin’ now

We ain’t afraid anyhow.

Gonna make Big Brother fall.

Gonna prove he wasn’t so big at all

Won’t it be one happy day

When we make Big Brother pay

For his crimes against humanity and

For hasslin’ you and me?

Ain’t gonna study war no more

When we shake Big Brother

Down to the core.

If Big Brother is watchin me

He ain’t gonna like what he’s gonna see.

If Big Brother is watchin’ now

We ain’t afraid anyhow

Spoken: There’s two kinds of people in this world.

That much I know.

Folks that just want to live their lives

And people that won’t leave them alone!

If Big Brother is listening

He might hear those bells of freedom ringing.

If Big Brother wants to know

Tell him love and freedom is gonna grow

Yeah, truth and justice is gonna flow

When he’s dead and gone we’ll start this show.

With Big Brother out of the way

It’s gonna be one sun-shiney day!

LIVIN IN PARADOX

i'm walkin through this town

feelin like a broken clown

i see the homeless people

and fancy cars that never have their windows rolled down (note: have to shorten this line

lol)

i see the wealthy man

who owns the streets we're walkin on

i see the poor man

everything he had is gone

dont try too hard now

it dont ever make sense

when you're livin in paradox

and dug down deep in the trench

listen to your heart now

and your equanimity

we're livin in paradox

but we can still be free

the right is on the left

the left is on the right

the night covers up the day

the day is dark as night

when you got it all figured out

you find out its all wrong

when the band is ready to play

someone forgets the song

dont try too hard now

it dont ever make sense

when you're livin in paradox

and dug down deep in the trench

listen to your heart now

and your equanimity

we're livin in paradox

but we can still be free

dont stand in the way now

thats how we lose the game

just strip it down now

you can stay dry in the rain

got bats in the attic

the devil knockin at the door

nothing is for certain

thats the only thing of which we can be sure

dont try too hard now

it dont ever make sense

when you're livin in paradox

and dug down deep in the trench

listen to your heart now

and your equanimity

we're livin in paradox

but we can still be free

the dream is never ending

the understanding's pending

the world keeps spinnin around and

every random thing is blending

these are the strangest days

but the light is shinin through the haze

you'll be alright when

you let acceptance have its way

dont try too hard now

it dont ever make sense

when you're livin in paradox

and dug deep in the trench

listen to your heart now

and your equanimity

we're livin in paradox

but we can still be free

YOU’RE ALWAYS FREE

they can lock you up

throw away the key

put you in a box

underneath the sea

put you in chains

for all eternity

but you can't truly be hurt

by false duality

life is just a dream

and a magician's spell

when you think it's real

you make your own hell

when you break the trance

then you will see

you are always free

you are always free

they can pollute the air

so we can hardly breathe

they can pollute your mind

with the shit on tv

they can attack your brain

with idiocracy

but they cant defeat

your spiritual tenacity

life is just a dream

and a magician's spell

still you can't be fooled

when you learn your lessons well

when you break the trance

then you will see

you're always free

you're always free

Your friends may elect to be victims

But you dont have to agree

The world is just illusion

And you are always free

at our inner core

is all that is

the spark of the divine

peace love and bliss

there are no words

no melody

that can describe the power

that's inside of you and me

life is just a dream

and a magician's spell

still you can't be fooled

when you learn your lessons well

when you live your life

in equanimity

you're always free

you're always free

SPIRITS IN THE SILENCE

the curtains of darkness fall across the stage

and the dawn seems so very distant now

and the dark night of the soul's embrace

grows even darker than blackness somehow

i light a candle and watch it glow

i let my mind go oh so still

i know the spirits in the silence

have always been here and always will

while the world is sinkin like a stone

and the merchant souls try desparately to swim

these silent spirits reach out to us

my heart and soul soars with them

i light a candle and watch it glow

i let my mind go oh so still

i know the spirits in the silence

have always been here and always will

we are the few but we have the light

and love in our hearts for humanity

oh little star of bethlehem

help us all find unity

a resurgence of essential truth

the oneness of the universe

teach us how to spread the love

let thy holy teachings break the curse

i light a candle and watch it glow

i let my mind go oh so still

i know the spirits in the silence

have always been here and always will

ZOO KEEPER

it's easy to find my place baby

you just gotta follow the trail

all the animals line up here

all day and night it never fails

when you walk up to my door

just be careful where you go

you will most likely be face to face

with some kind of creature

that you don't know

its never lonely around here honey

and there is always something to do

you step inside and you'll soon know why

they know me as the zoo (keeper)

i am the zoo keeper

ol' noah ain't got nothing on me

i am the zoo keeper

if you got a tail, fins, claws, fur or you shed your skin

there's always a vacancy

the cats here they run the show

and they are always ready to prove it

if the bearded dragon's beard is turnin black

you best be ready to move it

there's fish of every variety

there's frogs from all over the world

there's lizards and bunnies and snakes and things

so you soon you will understand girl why

i am the zoo keeper

ol' noah ain't got nothing on me

i am the zoo keeper

if you got a tail, fins, claws, fur or you shed your skin

there's always a vacancy

not everyone can understand why i keep such strange company

but if you travel across the land you won't find more happiness than in my big family

so if you are tired of the rat race now

and you want a different view

than the monster in the cubicle

at work that sits across from you

if you want to know some peaceful creatures

that will make your world more fun

come on over we'll be waiting for ya

there's always room for another one

i am the zoo keeper

ol' noah ain't got nothing on me

i am the zoo keeper

if you got a tail, fins, claws, fur or you shed your skin

there's always a vacancy

Tonight You'll Be Comin Home With Me

There's lots of stars in the sky

there's lots of fish in the sea

there's lots of men that are gonna want ya

but tonight you'll be comin home with me

There's lots of trees in the forest

there's lots of frogs up in the trees

there's lots of hearts been longin for ya

but tonight you'll be comin home with me

yeah now babe thats the way its gonna be

just lock the door and throw away the key

'cause there's lotsa men that are callin your name

but i'll be where they wanna be

'cause tonight you'll be comin home with me

there's lots of lights in the big city

there's lots of sand down at the beach

there's lots of roads that you could travel

but tonight you'll be comin home with me

there's lots of dreams been torn apart

there's lots of dreams we've yet to dream

there's lots of love that's there between us

so tonight you'll be comin home with me

yeah now babe thats the way its gonna be

just lock the door and throw away the key

'cause there's lotsa men that are callin your name

but i'll be where they wanna be

'cause tonight you'll be comin home with me
