Please support my work by buying this track!
For other versions of this song check out:
This is one of the most significant songs in my “catalog.” It was written at a time when I was first discovering African music, energy healing and personal mastery work.
For me when I learn something new, like the fact that I am not a “victim” of circumstances, that I am a powerful being who is creating my own reality, it helps to integrate the new ideas, and beliefs by express them in a song.
Originally recorded with the brilliant Gene Moore playing all the other instruments on my Visions and Voices CD I felt like I NEEDED to sing it again NOW and play the drums and electric guitar/bass/keys etc. truly the most fun I’ve had making music with myself in a long time LOL!
Thanks for watching!

Rise Up and Dance
Song # 163 | 4/13/1991 | Music Video Release 02/09/2020
Rise up and dance to the light in your lover’s eyes
I have been walking down streets of impossibilities
For so long that I forgot just why I came
I have seen visions I have heard voices
I have done my time in prisons that do not have bars or walls or chains
I have crossed rivers, I have climbed mountains
I have burned my face in deserts where the sun knew me by my name
I have heard music that was drifting on spring breezes
10,000 years ago and I have never been the same
You have been created not by God but by your self
To live the dream that you have chosen to call reality
You might be surprised to find that we are all just actors
We write all our own lines and choose to be or not to be
Tie your shoes tightly and then stretch out your thoughts
Remember thoughts are things like falcon’s wings believe in them
Leave all your doubts behind you, burn all your bridges
I said burn them, burn them, burn them!
