Unsung Words 04:08
This incense lights My inner fires And my secret desires But it expires before I have a chance To admit that I love you. Now frail ashes are left To blow away without effort They rain down across my floor A teenage wasteland of empty bottles, A graveyard for unsung words.

Activation 05:15
Your inner universe Is waiting for you Brightest golden stars Loveliest hues. We traveled for awhile To be here tonight together With answers inside. So take me where you You want to go It’s in our grasp now Ready to know. Into the brightest skies We leave all time Activation greets our Transparent minds. Doo doo doo doo dooo Doo doo doo doo dooo Activation greets our Transparent minds. Doo doo doo doo dooo Doo doo doo doo dooo (You take me anywhere It’s what I get from you It’s what I share with you.) Activation greets our Transparent minds.

If I were to ask of you To spend the night with me, Would you insist in sweetness Daylight kissing sea? Would you guide me patiently Whisper in my ear, Share your graceful moments Steady, crystal clear? You are as much a part of me As I can comprehend, A treasure held inside of me A voyage with no end. Fill me with your timelessness Hold me close to you, Forgetting my calamity Waking all of life anew. I hear your invocation Falling from the sky, Giving me new reason For understanding why. You are as much a part of me As I can comprehend, A treasure held inside of me A voyage with no end. A treasure held inside… Steady, crystal clear… A voyage… no end…

(Remembering the Princess of the Wolves.) Vibrant leaves Calming breeze, Footprints scattered into earth Ancient spirits, stone and dirt. Magic trees Sprouting seeds, Walking through a cooling spring Healing visions, lucid dreams, Let’s go to the forest and feel alive. Take my hand don’t be afraid We’ll cross new lands so far away Out of time beneath the sky Secrets of old gather tonight Let’s go to the forest and feel alive. Take my hand don’t be afraid We’ll cross new lands so far away Out of time beneath the sky Secrets of old gather tonight Let’s go to the forest and feel alive Let’s go to the forest and feel alive.

Soaring above the beckoning clouds Shrouded by mist and sunlight’s embrace A sudden horizon reveals its intent Our separation: a weakening state. Through mirrors we gaze into the unknown Awakened desires burn through to the soul Divided in thought our dreams are treading The fragmented shards scattered down below. Divided we stall (divided we stall) United we stay (united we stay) Searching to find (searching to find) The brightest of the days Letting it go (letting it go) Finding our way together as one (together as one) Awakened we save (awakened we save) The Hive Mind. The earth trembles now with fiery life Small creatures ablaze with unified minds In endless pursuit they march out of sight Revealing our strength: a cosmic design. A labyrinth of riddles to be solved The solution gleams inside of the heart We journey through life for this ancient truth So conscious, alive, in touch with the stars. Divided we stall (divided we stall) United we stay (united we stay) Searching to find (searching to find) The brightest of the days Letting it go (letting it go) Finding our way together as one (together as one) Awakened we save (awakened we save) The Hive Mind.

Daybreak 05:39
Wind-kissed forest walkers take their time Waltzing in harmony with the sky up Against a canvas of tall grasses favored by the Eternal forces they search to know but Cannot name, Cannot rightfully describe The truth of the spiraling self, Interconnected interlaced Unfolding with seasons, between thoughts And spaces their words echo simple desires Out there sitting on a rock bound to earth Unwavering and timeless like the promises They forged under careful watch of the sun, A westbound burning presence above and beyond Where consciousness patiently slumbers yet Awakens to the sound of three humble words, The triumphant flint steel and flame that defy The world, turning it upside down like a child’s Wooden top spinning carelessly With no concrete sense of when This will end or Where it will be going next.

Instincts 05:45
If I must lose, I will lose myself to you. If I have to choose, I will choose to leave with you. If I have to give, I will give my words for you. What becomes of us Is no consequence of honesty. I will find a way, And you will follow me. Until the end of time, Held in lunar memory. Down, down, down ahhh…. If I have to choose, I will choose to leave with you. If I have to give, I will give my words for you. I will find a way, And you will follow me. Until the end of time, Held in lunar memory. Down, down, down ahhh….

I brought you a star That fell from the sky…

The was a better time When life was young and new, We didn’t mistrust our ways With actions and words untrue. Before the words had taken form Our thoughts were cloudless days, Countless feelings overflowed And life knew of no age. I only want to know you Who you are beneath, Who you are inside Something deep within you, Before complication Before the need to hide. I came here to remember What was of yesterday My journey spans a million years To reclaim and embrace. This song is all I have I send it out this night May it reach your distant star, May it help you feel alright. I only want to know you Who you are beneath, Who you are inside Something deep within you, Before complication Before the need to hide.
