about

like a frameless film, this concept album tells the story of how the light from a distant star takes human form, awakened in the garden of the psyche as the first psychonaut, and the challenges it faces in holding fast to the memory of its celestial origins, while coping with its purpose on earth in the face of change.

Track Name: Traveling Light
traveling light

we came from afar
we came from a star
we make light
of dead and dying things
we're traveling light
we brighten the sky
and lift your will

undying sun:
the living dead
the story's done
the book is re(a)d
the garden grows
the soil has bled
he lost his mind
off with his head


we came from the light
rainbow grids of white
we hold tight
to the shaded shore
we're clinging tight
aspiring towards the hellish heights

how desperate
the shadows cling
afraid of what
the light may bring
the sky upon the earth, be-wed
resounding still inside his head


for they who into space were hurled
the psychoNautilus unfurled
but Adaman was left behind
to tend the garden of the mind
Track Name: Adam on the Eve before the Fall
ADAM ON THE EVE BEORE THE FALL

my deer-heart fears
spotlit in love-light
that slumbered through fright-nights
the dreams of the not-quites
that soared to the sun's height
and supped of the center
to taste solar's high rise
intending to enter

pull aside
the cobwebs in your eyes

the psyche under-min(e)d

Merge with my biology
I'll overlook my psychology

Before your eyes
the moon and sun simultaneously rise
night and day
are easy prey for the twilight
in your eyes
the moon and sun simultaneously rise
night and day
are easy, pray for the twilight
and you rise

the sunshine
shunned the signs
The moonlight
lined the mine
the sunshine
shunned the signs

Unclear before your eyes

Night and day are easy prey for the twilight



(whispers)
a premonition serves to sharpen intuition
...apple of my eye...


They raided paradise
right before our rise
Invaded, paralyzed
they read our rights before our eyes
could detect the wrongs that they devised
in the human--nature they despised
They took us by surprise
when they raided paradise
they fed us little lies
rights before our rise


They raided paradise
right before our rise
Invaded, paralyzed
they read our rights before our eyes
could detect the wrongs that they devised
in the human--nature they despised
They took us by surprise
to have control and raise the price
to raise the stakes and fool the wise
towards paradise revised
Track Name: The Fall
(instrumental)
Track Name: Earthbound Ships
EARTHBOUND SHIPS

he got away
with a single serving
of the secret stash
a currency more current than cash
more potent than hash
here in an instant
gone in a flash


on the day of the solar eclipse
the moon our sun blocks
venus spins saturn's rings on her hips
the mind unlocks
fleets of fleeting earthbound ships
caked in moonrock

and the wind plays the harp
through its trembling strings
and the sound that it brings sings
in resemblance of things
like a crystal it rings
like a sonar s(c)ent
into the solar system:
a sound, unearthly
like the earth that birthed me
set free from me
set free to be its own liberty


mind the flowers… mind the flowers
mine the flowers! mine the flowers!
flower the mind! flower the mind!
we left the garden behind….
we kept the garden in mind...


PARADIcE REPRIzED

its a paradise not a paradox
not a box that locks
its an open book
so close your eyes and have a look

its a paradise, not a pair-a-dime
not a dime-a-dozen
its a one-of-a-kind
its made of change
and of your mind
so take off time
and lose your mind
to leave behind
these paradoxical parasitical sites/sights
and you will come to find
we lost paradise with the toss of a coin
into the darkened skies
and we became what we dispised
when we tossed that pair of dice
yes we ruptured our disguise
when we tossed out paradise
and looked upon our creation
with sssssnake eyes….


mind the flowers, mined the flowers...
Track Name: Concentrated Doses of Psychosis
CONCENTRATED DOSES OF PSYCHOSIS

Concentrated doses of psychosis
administered
through mitosis hypnosis

Where are the flowers that compressed
eons into hours I've repressed?
In my isolated tower where I rest
they gave us magic powers as a test
And am I truly blessed?

All the cards I'd been dealt
thought I had them under my belt
but the view that I held,
helled the heavens above,
corresponded to lies
that outlive what they love

her power's her prowess
she prowls and devours


Where are the flowers that compressed
eons into hours I've repressed?
In my isolated tower where I rest
they gave us magic powers as a test
And am I truly blessed?
Track Name: Faces
FACES

Remember the names of the faces
that, fated like us, on this planet
had planted new races
like seeds and endowed them their trust
through changes and phases
that shifted as thus:
like embers to ashes
they fashioned
dawn into dusk
and then turned them like pages
in book/worms in soil
to forewarn them of ages
when the human eraser's wrath takes it's toll

what of all the sensations we became?
you'll recollect them by someone else's name
you may suspect them to be one and the same

Lady, lay me down like sound on your riverbed
save me memories stored like sand in a riverbank
saving graces fated races that endlessly now
know of all the sensations we became
recollect them by someone else's name
but I assure you, it will never be the same

And what of all the de-composing compositions
over which no authority was claimed?

Now I must set you free
chaotically, in order
4 me 2B
the 2 can't co-exist you C
at least in full
not truth-fully
How hiding minds
could come to find
what seeking they
had left behind
if these mind-full bodies may not rhyme
pre-tending is the greatest crime

The criminal!
The crime-in-all
the crime is the divine-in-all
the very One divides us all
the truth must be subliminal
before the fall sublime-in-all
God, help us please: divine us all!

The old foretold a sleeper-hold
upon the cast that broke the mold
and breaking bread, proposed a toast
of molding rye, to view the host
upon their minds they advertised
a single. reoccurring line:
Awareness for hire
Awareness for higher awareness for hire awareness for higher awareness for higher awareness.....

Humanity first has to be synthesized
so it can become realized
Reality first has to be humanized
so it can become realigned with the divine
all in due time
we all do time
within the mind....
Track Name: Heavenly Cacophony
HEAVENLY CACOPHANY

Now's the time Now's the time Now's the time
Now's the time to serve your purpose presently
through rapid shifting circuitry
that, branching off ecstatically,
for infinite diamond tapestries
this heavenly cacophany
of manic-all-epiphany

Come down it's time to serve
Come down it's time to serve
Come down it's time to serve
your life sentence on earth


As we approximate the end of time
all space is running out your mind/you're mine

Once upon a time
you tended to a mine
then nature realigned your spine
and now you're bending time
spoonfuls in a line

Now you're bending time


the rhythm is never-ending
there is no time left for pre-tending
channels are open and ascending/us-ending
signal-in-the-noise we are
transcending


the rhythm is never-ending
there is no time left


the rhythm is never-ending
there is no time

Now you're bending time
Now's the time! Now's the time!
Come down it's time to serve!
No time left!

Once upon a time...
No time left!
