Thank you.


The Modern Shamans' background is one of mystical explorations. As all Source Music, it is coming from a different point of view than traditional music where actual musicians express their art.

The album Running Nowhere is all about fun, high energy and coded mystical messages that are found in the rhythms, music and the lyrics.

The idea is not anarchy of any sorts but rather something completely different that is there for the listener to either connect to or not.

The irregular pronunciation of words is a result of the specific movements found in icaros (chants used by Amazonian Shamans to administrate the movement of energies in sessions). This is also because the lead singer has trained in traditional Amazonian Shamanism for over a decade in the Peruvian Amazons, and not in singing. So in essence, the lead singer is not a singer, and the producer is not a producer. So by definition you can say that is not even music :)

Enjoy the music, the rhythms, and allow the energies to flow. With love.

Track Name: Running Nowhere
Lyrics:

You think you can keep me down
Drive me crazy with your lies
You think you can break me now
Cant break free running nowhere

The system's got you now
The system will bring you down
Caging you with their laws
Cut your body with their claws

Keep me trapped, chain me down
Blindfold me, take my sight
This is your last chance to see
You will never take my light

50 million don't you see
50 million my army
Pump your fists, stand up tall
Tear them down & take it all
7 billion more of me
1 single humanity
Stand together hear my plea
We are one society

Come, stand with me
Side by side
We will rise
We can survive
and be free
Hear my cries

Come, stand with me
Side by side
We will rise
We can be free
from the fear
Never die

The system's lost you now
The system can't get you down
Free you mind from their laws
Free your body from their claws

Break the chains worn so long
Open eyes and be strong
This is you first chance to see
That you are already free

50 million don't you see
50 million my army
Pump your fists, stand up tall
Tear them down & take it all
7 billion more of me
1 single humanity
Stand together hear my plea
We are one society

Come, stand with me
Side by side
We will rise
We can be free
from the fear
Never die
Track Name: Open your Heart
Lyrics:

Living 9-5 in a dead end job
Wondering why life passed me by
I lost my job, I lost my life
I lost my reason to live

Why did you leave me?
Where's the meaning?
Nothing!
You were my love, you were my life
You were my reason to live

Open your heart, open your heart
Open your heart to me
Give me your love, give me your light
Give your life to me

You were my reason to live,
Emptiness since you left,
Took everything in my life,
My Life!

Give me back my heart
Stop making me insane
I'll die
I'll die for love

Open your heart, open your heart
Open your heart to me
Give me your love, give me your light
Give your life to me
Track Name: Blue Skies
Lyrics:

Gunshot smoking hot stings eye
Burns a bullet in my brain
Woke me up in the middle of nowhere
Smoking gun needle in my vein

Blue skies wash over me
Free me to leave my mind
Rise with me to infinity
Rise

Godsmack thunder my sugar cane

Blue skies within you

Chasing the dragons tail
Filling oceans with my cries
Why is the world so filled with lies
This is why I’m condemned to die

I never wanted to die

Blue skies wash over me
Free me to leave my mind
Rise with me through insanity
Rise

Hold my hand
Look in your eyes
Stay with me through eternity
This is our love
This is our life

Blue skies within you

Cage my soul in the dragons lair
The blinding son takes my sight
Release me from the pain
Shining light

Blue skies wash over me
Free me to leave my mind
Rise with me to infinity
Rise

Godsmack thunder my sugar cane
Track Name: Hold On
Lyrics:

Wake up in the morning, wonder why
Every day seems the same
All i know it hurts my brain
Makes me feel like I'm going insane

I open my eyes, and feel depressed
Another day with more distress
Stuck in a life I that despise
Even friends are spitting lies

Come on now - There's love in everything
Even on your darkest day, Love will show you the way
There's love in everything
Even when you're feeling lost, Love is the way

CHORUS
Hold on, for one more day
Don't fall, just hold on to me

Be strong, it doesn't matter any way
Hold on, and don't let go

I remember a time when I was free
A different time when I was me
No matter how hard I try
I can’t break away from destiny

Look around you can't you see
Crazy people & killing sprees
You tell me there's love - I disagree
All I see is misery

Come on now - There's love in everything
Even in your darkest day, Love will show you the way
There's love in everything
Even when you're feeling lost, Love is the way

CHORUS
Hold on, for one more day
Don't fall, just hold on to me

Be strong, it doesn't matter any way
Hold on, and don't let go
Track Name: Fuck Heaven
Lyrics:

Fuck heaven, fuck heaven
I need you by my side
Fuck heaven, fuck heaven
I need you in my life

Your beating heart stops next to mine

You were my love
You were my life
Why did you have to die?
You were my love
You gave me life
Your last breath is my cry

Fuck heaven, fuck heaven
I need you by my side
Fuck heaven, fuck heaven
I need you in my life

Seize you time
Lose your mind
Seize your love
Before it’s too late

Your bleeding heart stops next to mine

Life is so hard
Life is unfair
Why did you have to die?
You were my love
You were my life
Why did they have to lie?

I’ll never let you go!

Icaro

Fuck heaven, fuck heaven
I need you by my side
Fuck heaven, fuck heaven
I need you in my life

I’ll never let you go!
