Fallen Star

Intro: a thirsty little starseed...

Chorus: Shine bright then evolve...lets live life like a falling star..

Verse 1:

Peeling off symbols...implanted by secrets
strip logos and labels...its simple mechanics...geometric triggers to be an appendage
the weathered hand feeding the polished and morbid-glutins...
strip-dance into an astrol body...
Costume metals pawned to revive atmosphere...
Tapestry tear...
Ancestor care...

swallow your eyes...at a glance in a mirror
a binary universe...be the ones and the zeros...
singularity stomach... catostrophic decimals

constellation blue-prints..
stargazing in a lucid dream...

Chorus

Forged...from the spark of a bright idea...

Track Name: Ravenous
Ravenous

Intro:
This step forward...takes me back...

Hopeless assumptions...
I know whats gonna happen...
It never ends...

Chorus: Trying to chew out of the seamless pocket of time...RAVENOUS

Verse 1:

The nightmarcher retraced the foot prints that he were behind...
following a familiar stench that peeled his skin while climbing the mountain side...
Hollowed-out...just attached to his next step...
With the end in sight...
He wandered up...a path...and the ground began to moan and scream after every stride...

Suddenly he find himself again...at the beginning...
He eyed the monolith before him...
Beside the waters that drowned its fountain...
Sun-dried arteries of a loved one...
suspended prior notions of peace...
a spear in his left hand...and a clouded right-brain...
rendered the wise-man into an objective beast...

The birth...

Painfully familiar...but his finger keeps going through it...
All he remembers is giving to anger...
while he tried to hold his wife together...
but couldn't...

As it was told...

He made a spear out of the tree of knowledge...
Muted the silent power within him...
Renounced his spirit...allowing his vengence to pilot his actions...

That was his curse...

His vision spiraled then narrowed...and his body became contorted and vacant...
following the cries carried by the wind...that lead him into a marsh...littered and scattered
with foot prints...
Ragged edges of the mountain...slowly tapped the lifesource from his pulsating gashes...
a ghastly stench...salivating for the taste of sweet revenge...

bridge:
Alone and dim...there's only...one of which retreats the vision..
One of which that hunts the cold...
Alone and bright...there's only...one...way out of the cycle...the twist of the compassionate key in chest...
2x

Chorus:
Trying to chew out of the seamless pocket of time...Ravenous

Verse 2:

After reaching a clearing...all who were present were emptied...
or still leaking...
It scrambled his vision...and the trail of footprints ended where he was standing...
the last moments of his once jovial surroundings...
screamed acrossed his lifeless eyes...
as he felt his hands unweave the many torsos...
that lay dormant on the earths

There were the final moments of his wife...
Splashing against his swollen heart...

The hunt ended with his spear to chest...
apologizes witnessed by the jury stars...

And all who laid around him including his spouse...
were just a manisfestation...of an aspect of himself...
and that awareness...
unlocked a strobe light from his chest...

bridge:
Alone and dim...there's only...one of which retreats the vision..
One of which that hunts the cold...
Alone and bright...there's only...one...way out of the cycle...the twist of the compassionate key in chest...

Twisted the spear in his chest...and everyone came to their feet...

Verse 3:

the images slowed down..to a hault...
his callow skin was torn from the inside-out...
his soul nominated to be recycled...
to be a servant...
for all he strung about...

Revisiting the characters dismantled in his previous life...
Contracted to be a stepping stone for all that he detached from the light...

With a chance....to free himself...
Service man...via gestalt
To the holy land...for the arc was built...
gambling with...the cards that were dealt...

striving to implement his new intentions...
to break the vicious cycle of living...and to repay the debt of lightbodies that he feed to the darkness...

To be undone...
the hunger pains...for the chance to taste the sky...
Track Name: SunSpark In A Black Hole
SunSpark In a Black Hole

Verse 1:

Stengthened by a protective thought of an insecured child...
muted by deadbeat guidance...
and it worsens when age presents an outer influence...
everything equipped at birth...believed to be obsolete...
deceit: a test to rekindle ones intuition
forgetting a path was contracted...
growing to overstand the fine print jargon...

Longing to be distant of whats presented....
imagination burnt a hole through the lid of my eyes....
every thought no modeled in 3D...
structures...manifested via alchemical device....
Brewed in that boiling burden that rest on your shoulders...
The reason your shoulders exist...
A formula that repeats to the feet...
Flawless from nest to chest...

Its moments like these....
I am trained to forget....
Dismiss and regret....
Viscera complex....
Retreat by holding ones breath...
Digested mirrors induce progress....
Dueling self in a holodeck to the death...
Deepseeded clearing sprout after neglect...
Anger....reflection...compassion...respect...

just a glimpse...

Draining cycle that compliments each revolution...
Piece by piece...
Each segment of emotion... spearheads into the next one....
overwhelmed by the nit-picky gold-diggers....
Spliced experiments released in nature...
Ventured out the center of circling vultures...
Returning home with a list of accomplished endeavors...

Chorus

I was sold the idea to volunteer as a co-creator..
Then I was born to the idea that all prior agreements was superstition...
Delivered head first from a black hole...
Now I am trying to crawl my way back in...

Verse 2:

Each second carves an intention...
Devoured kindred...
Enlighten brethren...
From past experience...
Start at the ending...
Backtrack to the origin...
Acknowledge the lesson...
Wonder aimlessly into the next step...
Asunder images of perplexed kids...
Flounder then spark creativity in depths...
Carried like a lantern...

By a higher self...

Intergrate a deadman with breathing patterns...
String a pendulem to a ring of saturn retrograde...
the gravitational pull of tides...Orchestrate the fall and rise..of the ocean in each body...
Conducted by a sterling moon which peeled a shadow...
Naked for man to wallow center stage...hollowed

As it hides again...

Motionless till tugged from there to now...
Slumber wide-eyed...with sweat on your brow...
Endowment of the crown commenced
before learning to speak...
Cheat death...born with an answer sheet...
just peak...
Beset by the secret which encompass a breath...
Unkept inner-temple that needs to be swept...
Destroy then erect...

Crack of Dawn


Constant construction with a holographic vision
Throne room with a levitating thinking chair guarded passionately by a tetrahedron...
A door blew open by the gasp of a dying man...
awaiting the silence to swallow his presence...
Surfacing now with a spear in your skull..

Chorus

I was sold the idea to volunteer as a co-creator..
Then I was born to the idea that all prior agreements was superstition...
Delivered head first from a black hole...
Now I am trying to crawl my way back in...
Track Name: Glitch
Glitch

Eyes closed and falling Awake...
Eyes closed and falling awake...glitch
Life is the product of three....your middle self is heard when you are out of line...

Sparks dance as it darkens...
Still frames of memories shuffle in order...
the moonlight startles the sleeping giant...
Who speaks at the end of a yawn...as it deals a sequence of lucid dreams...
Simulation begins when the mind...
Tunes out interference...
Silence proceeds as the brain degrags...
Intimate ideas undress themselves...
Blinding...Hind-Sight...Brick-wall...

Crumpled paper giving to gravity...
along with the acquainted tears...
two products of one creation myth...
Different emotions... from the same end of a two-sided spectrum...
Room temperature...facial features...
honey-comb sunflower...fibonacci zombies...
Hermitian symmetry...pink noise..
Raining opportunities...life just falls into place...

Patience...Tetris...eraser sketches...
muted silence...Echoes towards the hollowed deepend...
where the sound artifacts collect...
discovered then deleted...
Absent personality...vacuum...
blackhole shaped as an attractive face...
familiar little people of a shattered mirror....
will disappear when the sun burns out...

Horned archers aiming for the bovine bull's eye
Donate the left portion of your brain for a chance to escape..
The Invisible landscape is behind your forehead
and all around you....
Anchored in lies...
Truthful balloon...
blank paradise...
moon shaking typhoon..
After hours...mourning sunshine...
Moonlit ocean splash...ripple effect...

Coaxial univerise...
Falling Star...
autumn leaves of an omniscient tree...
Cranial stop sign...
Faith signatured waiver
Out of body excursion...bleed...
Twinkle twilight dancer
Geomancer cemetary marker...
Pulsating bodies at rest...
Lets heave...
The troubled waters from the belly to the mouth of the beast...

Another number crunched...
a world symbols created...
Shattered life-times of one soul to gain experiences to recall when needed....
Reocurring faces that always become your best friends...
Throwing a net into the big blue and catching enough jesus fish to starve the next man...

Stranger is Fiction brethren...
Voices transmit your feelings...
Mumbling wordsmith outspoken by the passive passing surroundings...
Attract yourself then release...
Dormant characters lay wide-eyed as your multiple personalities fan-out and disperse...
To exist then return to its source...
Track Name: Hanging Gardens 2012
Hanging Gardens 2012

Chorus:

There's no place like home
When I break through this skin I know there's more to learn
But it's for my child...

Life goes on...

There's no place like home
When I break through this skin I know there's more to learn
But it's for my child...

Life goes on...

(Evolve into a name a stone)

Verse 1:

While striking a match to forget my past
Glass imagery reflected off the mirror's back
a self-projection long lost and forgotten appeared to appease my awareness
calumnies no longer try to pick at my skin
make my car bleed...
But I could give a fuck if this body gets damaged
I just came back for my needed experience
As the gavel strikes the fourth time
I discovered the moment lived was fully in memory
(sacred)
then the guilt of abandoning those unaware of being lead (as myself) in a quantum leap of faith
yet we seem to find each other down the spiraling line
chase a dream under a dwarf star
tip toe to elude an impaling farewell
poise voice echoes in a dampen hall
ormus boiling in a beaker with a wax ball
gold at the will of mind
illusion of adjectives dissolve to live in prime
focus on the center object in the plague that swarms
till the peripheral vision reveals what is there under the blanket of light
the days seem shorter watching the innocent play in a field of unmarked graves
biting an apple leaning over a picket fence watching many trapped in an iron age
destined to carry this burden from mouth to ear
until the imagery in darkness ceases
day-drapes unveil a 3D landscape in a cave

Chorus:

There's no place like home
When I break through this skin I know there's more to learn
But it's for my child...

Life goes on...

There's no place like home
When I break through this skin I know there's more to learn
But it's for my child...

Life goes on...

Verse 2

Crawling into a hermitic shall shaped as a pyramid
Initiation process starts in the death bed
Shattered dreams swept under the rug
holding my own
under the auspicious of the grand intention
with understanding overshadowing
living timely with the heart and lung
here we are starving and happy
survival comes naturally
catch the tear drop of the mourning sun
the day after tomorrow dimensions fall victim to frequencies
celestial exist in your beings
healing begins with the painful experience gained...
Restrengthen brethren energy awake in just a single moment
every person fly...
Various dimensions appear where the light bends
second languages open gateways to new oblivions
minute beads of light bounce in the fore ground of all I see
feeling the bed shake...minutes before I fall asleep...
Dare to believe that there is more than the empirical six perceives
layers between the lines that a third-eye could read
all paralleled of one another
sun-bathing in unison under a light shower....Forsaken

Verse 3

Age in a down spiral
depending on your angle it could be upward or outwards
based from an outlook nothing is normal

just a repetitive question created to experience polarization...

Hemisphere sync continental shifts divided sparingly across a circle square triangle solar cross
