Track Name: Life in the Desert
What is this life in the desert?

Hey, I've been eating off the ground, everything in my way.
Now my face is buried in sand and the shade is slipping away.

What is this life in the desert?

I got a thorn up in my foot, better be on my way.
Yeh, the fire's going out and the night is coming to stay.
Oh, to see all I've seen, heard all I heard.
All the places I've been in this universe.

What is this life in the desert?

Well, this is life in the desert of humanity.
Track Name: A Little Higher
Fly a little higher boy.
Don't you know it's been foretold.

Fly a little higher boy, fly up to the mountains.
When your load is heavy and it's too hard to see yourself.

Fly a little higher boy, fly up to the mountains.

And I know you'll see the perfect harmony of your life unfolding like it was meant to be.

Fly a little higher boy, fly up to the mountains.
Fly a little higher boy, fly up to tomorrow.

Don't you know it's been foretold.
Track Name: Up Up Away
Up up away.
Oh let's call it another day.
Up up away.
Oh let's call it a calendar year.

Up up away.
Oh let's call it my second decade.
Up up away.
Oh let's call it time to migrate.

Up up away... go on.

There are no second chances in this life.
Can it be so unfamiliar but so right?

I wanna go my own way to the grave.

Up up away.... go on.
Track Name: Munnar to Bundi
Hello to the children playing with their stones.
Kite flying on the rooftop funny, dreams caught in their blows.
So dab on your red powder, it's your mystical eye.
And put on your white shirt, so you can walk on by.

We've come so far, Munnar.
My heart is going back to Bundi.
How can I be in two places at once?
Does my heart beat the same?

I know a lotta rickshaw wallahs, all their hopes and their dreams.
The children don't need school pens honey, to understand what I mean.
So take all your dances and your temples and shrines.
'Cuz I saw a palace and nature combine.

We've come so far Munnar.
My heart is going back to Bundi.
How can I be in two places at once?
Does my heart beat the same?

It's the garden of delight, garden of paradise.

Does my heart beat the same for you?
Yeh, you caught me by surprise with a smile that filled the skies.
Does my heart beat the same?
