Track Name: Gypsy
The journey of sorrows is a wish infinite
let your mind fathom your abyss
and sink into sands of sanctitude
solitude
i was not the church-going type
until i found God in the only glory of a Fire
circled by a tribe of kings and beggars
queens and lepers are leaping from their skin
for transcendence is only your perception’s release
transcendence is only your perception’s release.

And so
our journey is not what
but who we are.

But for a name i wander the stars as a gypsy.
wondering while stumble feet sneak the door crack
fly to imagination is navigation thought back.
thought back to my lack of concentrations that are melding in early light of this day...
which is Everyday
and everyday i rise and meet you in the place between speckle and sunray

Speckle and sunray

And so my death will not be as the setting sun
the descent knows not our crescent rise
in the dawn, my death will as a new life iridescent
as presence of One shatters footsteps running from nowhere into everywhere
when the place never mattered
and the dreams of direction remained to create new worlds and Beauty
we create new worlds and Beauty
and slip into sands of sanctitude
solitude
i was not the church-going type until i found God in the only glory of a Fire
circled by a tribe of kings and beggars
queens and lepers are leaping from their skin
for transcendence is only your perception’s release
release
release

Bleed Truth through your veins
it will stain your soul for life

I’m a gypsy.

Track Name: Beats and Breath
Between the beats and the breath
i’ll step
next to no one
so i guess no one is me
to know One
i’ll seep between the lines
and let go
i’ll let go

It’s alright if you let me know
it’s okay
evaporate
and we’ll rain down
we are moving to the same sound
the same seed
that’s planted in you
it’s planted in me

Dreaded up twisted
cut so i can see
cut so i can bleed the words
you’ll remember but forget
and you said you were the dragon
but i’m the (k)night
searching days
searching ways
to find

It’s alright if you let me know
it’s okay
evaporate
and we’ll rain down
we are moving to the same sound
the same seed
that’s planted in you
it’s planted in me

Let me be the sky
cycles, seasons, we die
evaporate and i’ll rain down
and through it All
i hear

Track Name: Little Boxes
Forget the forms when you’re absorbed in the meanings
the unseen filling up like a gas pump fueling the spirit
riding the body to nearest subway station
you are the train of intoxication leaving at noon for the Truth
hidden behind questions lingering in your mind
the forgotten whisper in time of who you are
who you are is not what they tell you to be
not what you see when you bleed colors that fade from a canvas of forms
so i say forget the forms, forget the norms, as you remember digging deeper
like sand through the fingers
like the sea that lingers
like Love...


Little boxes in line
drawing circles
but they never seem to fit right
i never seem to fit right
in my
little box of mine.

And i just can’t quit
this addiction to my head
it still pounds, pounds, pounds
no changing all the voices up in here
i’ve got my
little box of fear

And desperately am i trying to draw
these circles in my heart
concentric circles of love around you
around me

Marching in line are we individuals?
are we equal as we step
left, right, left, right, left, right
to a step of our own
but why do i feel
so alone

And desperately am i trying to draw
these circles in my heart
concentric circles of love around you
around me

Little boxes in line
drawing circles
but they never seem to fit right
i never seem to fit right
in my
little box of mine...got your...little car little box, little tv little box, little mind little box...little box little box.

Track Name: Patience
When the sun died
the love dried up and left me
full of my fear
empty as a tear falls
off the pier of my heart
makes it hard
when the patience of light is a dark mind

Let me fall
i don’t want to be
taller than the trees
i will bend
my mind will break as i wake up the Sun
i’m still falling
into One.

And two times are a charm
when the lies keep repeating
keep repeating
forgetting to start
and it makes it hard
when the patience of light is a dark mind
i want to be fine
but of coarse i am
let me climb into your Love

Let me fall
i don’t want to be
taller than the trees
i will bend
my mind will break as i wake up the Sun
i’m still falling...

in the darkness i am the patience to shine
patience is the light of the dark mind to find itself.

above the love
far below we tow the weight of heavy days
anticipating change
but i’ve got none in my pocket.
well, i’ve got a locket to remember December’s promise of a new year
but why are we still counting when the time is here
in the darkness i am the patience to shine
patience is the light of the dark mind
to find itself out of fear
as these tears have washed my presence clear
transparency is clarity to let the light near
as i think the thoughts that think too much
i don’t pay attention
so i’m fined for being blind to the Truth
you know the One you knew
but forgot
and in a shock i was awakened to the naked tale of my misery
and the mystery has been solved
but the solution is useless until you dissolve

as i annihilate
disintegrate into the sweet taste that makes the world go ‘round
as you bounce to sound
cause we wound up so tight
as i release like nights into day
and i pray to practice my patience
i pray to silence the violence
and pour order from the chaos corners of my torture chamber
the behavior is similar to a savior’s sacrifice on a cross
and his mother lets the loss
only to see the son/sun that once was
and twice removed am i from the divine
but drawing closer all the time
as i connect the lines to resurrect and new sun to shine
a new sun will shine
a new sun will shine.
