about

My second album, Mindshift. In my early 20s I began to expand my awareness about environmental challenges, and went to an inspiring talk by David Suzuki in Toronto. I bought one of his books and he signed it "For a mindshift". Hence, Mindshift was born.

The album was produced in Sarnia by Adam Miner, who is very talented at creating professional-sounding records. The result is a very powerful musical message!

Released under my name from a previous chapter of existence, Court Lajoie. ;)


Namaste ~*

Track Name: Connect
I heard the story that this world is at an end
And I can hardly believe what is happenin'
Then I wonder just who we will blame for this
Then I wonder just who will clean up this mess


I thought you said you wouldn't dance
But you stomp your feet and you clap your hands
To the song of world destructions
To the song of disconnection

This way of life, the way of "Man"
Is sinking in its own quicksand
We've got to stop, we've got to stop,
We've got to stop and *think*


I want to ~
Connect to the problems, connect all the dots
Connect to the life force that we have forgotten
Connect with each other, real community
Connect with my purpose and responsibility


I told you that I wouldn't dance
and I'm doing everything I can
To stop mindless destruction
To sing for reconnection

I realize now, open eyed now
I see my compromises
No longer will I sacrifice
The power of my life


I want to ~
Connect to the problems, connect all the dots
Connect to the life force that we have forgotten
Connect with each other, real community
Connect with my purpose and responsibility

Hey hey hey hey hey hey ~

Connect to the problems, connect all the dots
Connect to the life force that we have forgotten
Connect with each other, real community
Connect with my purpose and responsibility


I heard the story that this world is at an end
And I can hardly believe what is happenin'
Then I wonder just who we will blame for this
Then I wonder just who will clean up this mess


I want to ~
Connect to the problems, connect all the dots
Connect to the problems, connect all the dots
Connect to the problems, connect all the dots
Connect to the problems, connect all the dots
Track Name: Incomplete Harmony
We know so many languages
We speak so many words
We make our noises louder than
Voices that go unheard

But it's an
Incomplete harmony
We're not listening to what we sing ~

We write a symphony with every day that passes
With our own melodies so loud we don't hear clashes
We all sing the only song in this Uni-Verse
It's our decision if this is better or worse

But it's an
Incomplete harmony
We're not listening to what we sing ~

It's an
Incomplete harmony
We're not listening to what we sing ~

We know so many languages
We speak so many words
We make our noises louder than
Voices that go unheard

It's an incomplete harmony . . .

But it's an
Incomplete harmony
We're not listening to what we sing ~
Track Name: Force of Human Nature
Tsunami . . .

A human life is so short
It rolls and crashes like a wave on the shore

If we are like waves across the ocean
We rise and fall, continuing the motion of
Everything that we have ever been, and
Everything that we are doin'


The force of human nature is taking over ~


Every waves moves the sand
As every life transforms the land

We're rolling over, crashing all that we can see
We move with the media and take what we don't need
We raise the temperatures and continue to breed
And as the ice caps melt, we're a
Tsunami . . .

The force of human nature is taking over ~


And we don't feel it, but we're raping Mother Earth
Doing what we want and forgetting what is hers


The force of human nature is taking over ~


When will we stop and think?

When will we start to *FEEL*?
Track Name: Country Road
I want to plant a seed and watch it grow
Learn the things I want to know
Follow my dreams down a country road
Somewhere in southern Ontario

I want to find a place to call my home
Listen to the land and let it bloom from it's soul
We can plant our hearts and watch them grow
Somewhere in southern Ontario

Would you like to walk along
Fields of sweet corn that seem to go on forever
Would you like to come along
Oh the seeds that we could sow together

Let's follow our dreams down a country road
We'll go anywhere you'd like to go
We can plant our hearts and watch them grow
Somewhere in southern Ontario
Track Name: I Forgot There Is Sun Outside
I'm laying on the couch, staring at the screen
Lights and messages and people I see
My body is limp, my brain is thick
And I am forgetting everything

I forgot there is sun outside
I forgot that I am alive
I forgot the blue of the sky
I forgot to open my eyes

I'm standing on the grass
Looking at the sky
Wondering, wondering, wondering why
I've wasted so many hours of my life
Hypnotized

I forgot there is sun outside
I forgot that I am alive
I forgot my unwritten lines
I forgot my freedom of mind

The lake, the sky, the birds, the trees
The wealth of possibilities
The life around and inside me
The world is all my family

I forgot there is sun outside
I forgot that I am alive
I forgot there is sun outside
I forgot that I am alive
I forgot the flowing of time
I forgot that this life is mine
I forgot to let my light shine
Track Name: Memory
Your memory is part of me, like
Decomposing autumn leaves
Become the earth that's underneath
Your Love is sleeping peacefully

Times passes in days, months, years
I still remember what was here
The seeds we planted grow in sand that's
Blowing away slowly, slowly

Now leaves grow out of me
In colours my eyes can't believe
Another day, another dream
Your memory is part of me

Another day, another dream
Your memory is part of me
Another day, another dream
Your memory will always be

Your memory is part of me, like
Decomposing autumn leaves
Become the Earth that's underneath
Your Love is sleeping peacefully
Track Name: What the Fuck
From a factory farm to a slaughter house
Just close your eyes and open your mouth
From a laboratory to a living being
Just forget the story, and keep on eating

What the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are we feeding ourselves?

From a third world country to a grocery shelf
Don't think about them, and help yourself
From a marketing boardroom to a colourful box
Put it inside you, and don't stop

What the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are we feeding ourselves?

Take all of your problems, and all of your pain
Here's a short-term solution: eat them away
Take all of your money, and all of your thoughts
Here's de-evolution at low cost

What the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are we feeding ourselves?

If we are what we eat, and we eat what we kill
Maybe we're slowly killing ourselves
If I am what I eat, then I am what they make me
From now on I won't be, anything but what
I choose to be

What the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are they feeding us?
Tell me, what the fuck are we feeding ourselves?
Track Name: Wolf
The full moon, it fills the night
It shows a world where all’s not right
I run to the mountain, I run up high
and my only instinct is to sing to the sky

Ooooooooooh ~

This foreign land has shown me my own bones,
my skeleton of beliefs

All this rain, all this time alone has
washed away my debris

I look from a tower of priviledge down to a galaxy of lights
and my only instinct is to sing to the sky

Ooooooooooh ~

Can you hear
the song from my soul
traveling with the wind?

I can feel
you across the world
I believe we are kin

In this moment, we are united together by life
and my only instinct is to sing to the sky

Oooooooooooh ~

This world is ours, this world is us,
and everything that love

This is the time,
we need to help eachother
learn and rise above

And although our lives are small compared to it all
We are very powerful, and mustn’t let this world fall

Oooooooooooh ~
Track Name: Recipe
She is alive, but she doesn't know why
She opens her eyes, and looks for signs
She decides to do what makes her heart sing

* She has the recipe to turn her dreams into reality *

Her dreams shine like treasure across the desert
She will find friends along the way
Her red heart is a gentle compass

* She has the recipe to turn her dreams into reality *
Track Name: Be My Lover
A waterfall of music
Pushes us to dance together
And in this rainbow darkness
We are birds of the same feather

A wave of electricity
Surrounds and pulls us under
We swim between the vines of light
Towards the moan of thunder

Be my Lover
If only tonight
There is no other
This moment is right

You are a sweet fruit
fallen from a tree I've never been to
I'm salivating
I'd love nothing more now than to taste you

Be my Lover
If only tonight
There is no other
This moment is right

Be my Lover, Be my

Je ne sais quoi . . .

A waterfall of music
Pushes us to dance together
And in this rainbow darkness
We are birds of the same feather

Be my Lover
If only tonight
There is no other
This moment is right

Be, my Love <3
