Track Name: Epigenesis
Where the tree line meets the sky we fall
Must keep my composure, small? Not at all
The hues are true as I dissect my faults
Conversing to the whispers that are light

The ones the others neglect
Ones that grab onto the wind and illuminate from within
You are the symmetry I see fit
Wind grabs your symmetry and I love you for this

The sound of the earth under me
slowly vibrating and stimulating
The children wince from pain and cry
I am in a place where the tree line meets the sky

Spin me around, sit back down
I have found, only dark sounds
Where we go, float oh no
skin to skin, beautiful sin
Figure out, what’s this about?
Water gone, destroyed lungs
Unbalanced thoughts, in love with love
Awake to see, the dripping me

Plant a seed, harmonious empathy
Motionless eyes wince and cry
Sinking dreams, illuminate me
From earth we came, then we dissipate
Change my mind, all the time
Evolving all the time, what's wrong is right
It’s my mind, changing all the time
It’s my mind, stimulating lies
Track Name: Burgundy
Head on chest is where I lay
Your glossy eyes see right through me and my thoughts
And I can't help but feel like this
Glide upon your angel wings
I graze your lips of burgundy and I float
And I can't help but feel like this

Cold fingertips dance across your hips
And we won't make a sound
Stay here longer
For a little while

Massage your kiss, moist from spit
The best you do, composed so true
Don’t you speak, heavy breathing
Let your mind fluctuate, gorgeous rouge

I'm dizzy now, I can't see straight
These hearts align in separate state and we know
I can't help but feel like this
Lace our hands so gracefully
Eyes locked for eternity and we fall
I can't help but feel like this

Cold fingertips dance across your hips
And we won't make a sound
Stay here longer
For a little while

Massage your kiss, moist from spit
The best you do, composed so true
Don’t you speak, heavy breathing
Let your mind fluctuate, gorgeous rouge
Track Name: Diatom
They suffered, In a beautiful language
Not in monosyllables, As we did

So don't tell them what you found out
The mistaken sting of a bee
Suffering while you breed
Give and take along the seas

Following only what keeps alive
As nature sizzles and sighs
Roam around like field mice
Write a book give into lies

I don't belong to the spectrum of sleep
Just lost in it because I'm a human being
I don't belong to this field of green
Just lost in it because nature gave birth to me
I don't belong in the sky blue sea
Just traveling it because man confused survival and greed
I don't belong in the endless expanding infinite
Just alone so I need to spread out my energy

Your beauty will build you
But I desire you
Only love
Will call you home

As I laid back and sank
Into depths unfathomed I finally knew
The vibrant colors flew over me
As my memory flipped into eternity
Track Name: Solipsistically
I'm trying to feel again, but its harder then I thought
No its harder when you're not taught
I long to engage, but I'm poor with words
Meaningless adjectives and verbs

I'm finding it hard to communicate
No one knows what I'm saying, no one knows I'm sane
Could you verify my brian?
Are these new thoughts or just memories?

What is it to be?
Is it just me?

My metaphysical postion concludes
I am all there be
I'm trying to cleanse my mind
I'm carrying on so, Solipsistically
Track Name: Pastures of Xeranthemum
I miss the warmth of the sun
and grazing through meadows of imagination.
Awake to see dusk and pastures until dawn.
What merit we obtained in love with reminiscing thoughts?

It’s death, it’s pain, sick and starved, but still remain
This derived from hope and being sane

Outside I laugh, inside still vain
I just am and there is nothing in truth

Illusion and fallacy is my dear truth
I look at the world through rose colored glasses

I don’t belong to this ever expanding infinite
I’m just lost in it so I need to spread out my energy
Track Name: Pine
The voices turn to echoes
And bounce upon opposed walls
Like our feet on hardwood floors

And the bass fills the air
With a hot and heavy flare
With the timid forced from their holes

And the cut is just right
With drinks free all night
No one wants to sleep in their own beds

Enter the unknown house
Filled with strangers and smoke clouds
Attempting to leave our heads

So we search the city for satisfaction and action
With our feet clenched tight to the ground
The only time we're free of dirt
Is when I'm cold, idle and sober in my home with no one around

So the beat holds us captive
And feeds us like we're addicts
We're just biding our time until the weekend

Just coastin through our daily lives
Until we become the vampires at night
Waiting to suck down another glass of poison

So come fill my cup
Bury me inside the buzz
I'm not leaving until I black out

Some candy for my nose or some smoke I can blow
I'm just as fucked up alone
As I am, inside, of this crowd

So we search the city for satisfaction and action
With our feet clenched tight to the ground
The only time we're free of dirt
Is when I'm cold, idle and sober in my home with no one around

So we search the city for satisfaction and action
Yeah, I feel like I'm walking on a cloud
I'm one with the sky staying high to stay alive
I'm always stuck in my head and I'm just trying to find my way out
Track Name: Wolf in Sheep Clothes
Gather all the kids
Let’s speak about it
We're too scared to put forward our names
Wolves in sheep clothes, aware all about it
Let their heads hang in shame

Cause you won't find me in light
Ignore the sign that's right here
Believe in words that don't align
You can't take my mind

Where do you think we're going?
We're all to be cast aside
Left here to rust away
Burn these cities down
Time to start these new lives
Who's gonna be the spark to flame?

Cause you won't find me in light
Ignore the sign that's right here
Believe in words that don't align
You can't take my mind

I saw them coming for me
I saw them coming for my brain
I saw my life flash before my eyes
I saw them take control of my mind

Cause you won't find me in light
Ignore the sign that's right here
Believe in words that don't align
You can't take my mind

Cause you won't find me in light
Ignore the sign that's right here
Believe in words that don't align
You can't take my mind
Track Name: Sonorous
What a great gift to be given
Not to be seen, but experienced
All around you, it's all reflections
Invisible, still ever present

If you could see what's really happening
You'd be laughing, you'd be gasping
All that is at work, keeps you from collapsing
All that is at work, keeps you for everlasting
Track Name: Serendipitous
You will float down the river of life
Always learning something new
We are tangled in each other
Where I have finally found truth

You are the wildflower soul
I yearn to have, yearn to hold
How ravishing, lavishing, and satisfying
These cataclysmic cries go untold

I have this empathy while you tear
You are the melody the soul yearns to hear
I am ceaselessly dreaming of you
Like pollination, it’s beautiful and true

Dreaming in sequence with you, but in reality without you
Pushing away the sadness, into depths unfathomed
Creating the lilies the frogs love to lay upon
Arise in sadness, in every day’s dawn

You are the wildflower soul
I yearn to have, yearn to hold
How ravishing, lavishing, and satisfying
These cataclysmic cries go untold

I have this empathy while you tear
You are the melody the soul yearns to hear
I am ceaselessly dreaming of you
Like pollination, it’s beautiful and true

So divine, lay yourself out
So divine, I'm so inclined
So divine, hold on to my memory
So divine, float along the harmonious seas
So divine, swing the swings of your childhood dreams
So divine, how serendipitous you are to me

I weave in this labyrinth we call imagination
Attempting to make anything fit
The puzzle I call affection spills into my grip
This plethora of love, is within you

Weaving around on these escapades
Growing old and still singing songs
The beauty that grazes your soul
From the summer nights we met is still strong

Oh my, I am so enthralled
You are old now, but still true
I found a reason
And the reason dear, is you
Track Name: Graceful Sapphire Eyes
The simple smile I will imbue
Through the green pastures
All the broken pieces lay in regret
Broken soul looks for adhesives instead

Taking anything they can grab
Grab onto the wind, aimlessly glide
On shameless, unwanted increments
Seagulls gnaw at me once again

We then construct and erect up
Lives upon the sand
When the structure emerges with symmetry
It spins, crumbles, and we write letters to death

I have sank into this symmetrical spiral
Oh how I dread
With no hope, or help, no love
Just this inure bed

From the earth I came, to the earth I will dissipate
Bleeding into the fields and this is how the fields turn Red
The day will arise when I awake next to you and touch your lips
We will reduce to fine particles and our bodies will transpose

As I look into your graceful sapphire eyes
I am in a place of tranquility, the honey!
You see serenity is within in me
I am at peace knowing we just are

Chrysanthemums snow from time to time
As a reminder that we'll all participate to meet the grave
I just am, from the earth I came.
We just are, to the earth we will dissipate.

It’s changing and I don't know why
My thoughts are monstrous, so I write
Cold and empty and still I try
Transcendence is in my sight
Souls are loitering in this tilted sky
Nostalgic gets lost from left to right
What nuance from evolving cries
My Metamorphic Mind
