Track Name: Mistakenly Taken
i feel an abiding sense of calm out by the lakeside of bahir dar
i traveled very far to get to these shores
there’s something to this quality of light that streams through the treetops and catches fire
i’d be a liar with the future foretold

but you can’t make this up
mistakenly taken for a stranger by a lover
you gave me quite enough
to draw upon later after all of this is over

remember when you opened up to him love is to fight the lion he said
music is everywhere he said
that even as the trees move, even as the waters move you
you just keep on walking and walking he said

that you can’t make this up
mistakenly taken for a stranger by a lover
you gave me quite enough
to draw upon later after all of this is over

i know some disturbance will come my way sure as the moonlight pulls the waves
across the surface of the lake
but far below where sound of mind dares not go the aqueous masters fast and pray
waiting for the day when i come home

when i come home, leave the lights on
you must wake up but if you please, could you make the bed
i feel so tired in my body
but my heart and my soul want to know what lies ahead

but you can’t make this up
mistakenly taken for a stranger by a lover
you gave me quite enough
to draw upon later after all of this is over
Track Name: Golden Belly (Invocation)
love, come through me, flesh out my figure with vibrating light
because i want to feel you inside these luminous clouds of “I”

take me over wholly, gold in the belly, unfold in the eye
stand forth little star of the north
and guide me home

every little particle arisen from the sleep of the deepest dream
kaleidoscopes colliding in the vision, spilling out from behind the seen
tear me out another page from your book i can read as the sun dips low
i’m gonna pass through this fire and purify my structures in the molten glow

love, come through me, flesh out my figure with vibrating light
Track Name: Digging
i’m alone in the old old confines of fasiladis’ bath
and i’m looking to pass the time till my lesson
in the ways of the past
i’m surrounded by these well preserved ruins that i got to myself
i think when things fall apart we can see the foundations
and fortunes they’ve held

when we come to these places we can’t help but stop
digging direct inquiry into naturally expiring eons
beyond the known
when we come to the bottom and we look straight up
into vaulted crumbling ceilings of angelic design
we find the time is right

now my bajaj is waiting and i must go and end this peaceful reverie
but one day i hope to return to this very same place alone in my memory

when we come to these places we can’t help but stop
digging direct inquiry into naturally expiring eons
beyond the known
when we come to the bottom and we look straight up
into vaulted crumbling ceilings of angelic design
we find the time is right
Track Name: Shifting Spheres
Shifting spheres that lift me from accustomed costumes
postured beneath the mango tree I felt a warm fall into me
and it lingers as the subcontinent recedes
I wonder how to carry all I want to be when nothing’s fixed
I arrived to frigid irises
but persevere there's a fire to be found

Even in the coldest climes time can be so kind
and even in the deadest end you can find you can find a friend
but if you dress if you dress for the plunging mercury
you'll reap an abundance of certainty
just remember to strip when you go inside

Elevator take me to the sparkling city
petty theft of lovers tears is commonplace it's no crime here
but in the book is written sins of omission the same
as though you blame your health on icy breath you tell yourself
there's nothing left up on the shelf to keep you in the clear
but in the closet you shake the jacket of its dust

Even in the coldest climes time can be so kind
and even in the deadest end you can find you can find a friend
but if you dress if you dress for the plunging mercury
you'll reap an abundance of certainty
just remember to strip when you go inside
Track Name: Burning Breath
lover, would you undergo this procedure
would you compensate for the lull in the lion’s share
and innards why do you undulate under cover of night
because this tossing and turning has brought me to the brink of despair
Stand vigil over this roaring drought pouring out of a sordid corpuscular past
this cadaver sports a coat of splintered glass
oh great canyon can you carry the weight of the fluvial fortunes
the diluvian epoch beckons from the grave

what's come before is dead and gone with the winners and losers alike
and the future ain't yet born of our burning breath
to test this hypothesis rests on a leap that the faithful they readily make
but I, for one, just want to give it a rest

Mr. Major, would you underwrite my next nine tries
each alibi undermining the silvery goal
Mr. Major, the governing body has got such a grip on the pipelines
that I fear I can't shake it's hold
little Savior, where were you when I came to be
conveniently culled from the ether, the slivers of sun
your behavior, so abstruse for the better part
of the life I've lived thus far
the seekers roots looms large a distant star

what's come before is dead and gone with the winners and losers a like
and the future ain't yet born of our burning breath
to test this hypothesis rests on a leap that the faithful they readily make
but I for one just want to give it a rest

Going in I know I am

what's come before is dead and gone with the winners and losers a like
and the future ain't yet born of our burning breath
to test this hypothesis rests on a leap that the faithful they readily make
but I for one just want to give it a rest

lover, do you underlie these covers fine
subtly demurring all the time
and lover, do you underpin this house of mine
and can I see you once again when I lose my eyes
Track Name: I'm Coming To Shower You With Love
I'm coming to shower you with love
It's been a long long time since I felt your eyes caress my soaring soul
undressed and mornings light interminably old
but baby if you feel that pull of time don't you mind
for I'm coming to shower you with love

And you are far away across the mountain tops and the valleys low
we moved into each other suffused with dawn’s pale glow
but baby if you feel that distance now don't you frown
for I'm coming to shower you with love

soon we will find all we found and more splayed across the desert floor
held together by centripetal force
time is shrinking distances collapse gazing up into the apse
I'm drawing nearer to your meaning once more

So breath deep tonight into expanded space into infinite time
for I’m coming to shower you with love
Track Name: The Well Is Deep
When in paradise do as the paradisians do
when in paradise alight to a higher ground
as the eagle flies milking the thermals and poised to collide
we've got the luckiest eyes in the whole wide world

We’ll be running so wild and free child come to me I hold the key
you must be thirsty come drink with me child don't worry the well is deep

Let your family know that you're safe in the eye of the storm
let your family grow to encompass every form
with your love in tow sway in the hammock way up in the sky
we've got the pluckiest heartstrings that you can find

We’ll be running so wild and free child come to me I hold the key
you must be thirsty come drink with me child don't worry the well is deep
Track Name: Nonsense
Just a little quickie before I go to bed just a little outpouring of sticking to your guns
once begun can't come undone I mustn't try I can't keep my cortex courting lies
my neurons degrade and hierarchies arching rainbows radiating
in flattering tufts from my titillated tendons ending with the engines
and down down into vast subterranean chasms several hundred fathoms of fathers holding
heavy lidded wunderkinds feet to the fire irascible bullies bellowing
they can't stomach undertaker’s ire
and stopping halfway through the stream of conscious flooding

is there any value to nonsense
I couldn't float a flock of fidgeting fibers but I'll try to assign meaning once again
Is there any value to this lens
i’ll flow it slowly watch the motor smote another as I try to assign meaning once again

I feel misfortune like a filmy web cast around my sunshine flying momentarily through treetops
teetering on the brink of shrinking coastlines to be swallowed by the swindled masses
to be fingered by the forgers past attempts attendant on the wrong interpretation
interpolated visitations of sentient sidewinders with a penchant for mischief and pensioners smile

is there any value to nonsense
I couldn't float a flock of fidgeting fibers but I'll try to assign meaning once again
Is there any value to this lens
i’ll flow it slowly watch the motor smote another as I try to assign meaning once again
What can I be said to understand
I'll make a mockery of my vague attempts at lockdown as I try to assign meaning once again
Track Name: When Kant Read Rousseau
Sarah you showed me there's magic in the metro
I had just about given up on the underground
people hold themselves so tight deprived of natural light
but you brought sunshine with a kind word about my sound
you ascended I was right behind on our way to find
a little piece to call our own for the next hour
and when you begin to play I say magnificent mais en français
and say and you said très bien
and that was when I realized that we had enter inside a loop to lift each other up
so give me your hands and lets synchronize let's make time stand still tonight

Sarah you've known me for just a little while
but do you also feel like we're old old friends
because your smile wrapped up in your scarf
well it cut through cold and it Cut through dark
and it woke me up at dawn as I lay in bed
these things don't happen every day
like when kant read rousseau and he had to change his
ordinary path for something new
I’ve just a little Time left here
but for me it's becoming abundantly clear that
I'd love to spend a little time with you
and that was when I realized that we had enter inside a loop to lift each other up
so give me your hands and let’s synchronize let's make time stand still tonight
Track Name: Tangle In The Sun
We're moving our limbs to the rhythms we're slinking on down to the sand
we're dancing like the ghost like the wind in the trees oh my brother won't you give me a hand
sister I hope that you're feeling is free won't you come tangle in the sun with me
we're moving our limbs to the rhythms

We are grooving on what we've been given we’re Stumblin onto the roots
the truth flutters down like a tumbling leaf oh my brother won't you give me a proof
sister did you know that you can see to the sea want you come spiral up of the one with me
I said we're Groovin on what we've been given
Track Name: All Along
Words won't work to say how it felt to awake on the 15th floor
as the Birdsong poured into our open window
mingled with the thousand names of the divine mother
and you're sleeping face glowed with peaceful sunshine frozen in time

I tried them to tell you somehow I'll try now with this song
but I take solace knowing that you've known all along

And hugs can't help but feel a little limited by the confines of our physical bodies
but that didn't stop me from seeking your embrace every day
and even to stare into your eyes as I felt the love was somehow imperfect
but it sure was worth it just to share a little of what I got inside
Track Name: Let Me Rest
I feel intoxicated by the days long deprivation
as I moved through sunsets squeezed into machines
that defy expectation every permutation sits a little belated and my organ sings

let me rest I can't go on like this
let me guess your secret peeking into dreams
let me slip away I won't see the day
but I got your secret to sing me to sleep

oh my love you are wet upon my brow
and your streaming down little old me I'm running out
see I'm a horrible mess ever since I guessed
your one little secret in my organs sing

let me rest I can't go on like this
let me guess your secret peeking into dreams
let me slip away I won't see the day
but I got your secret to sing me to sleep
Track Name: Draw Me In
Open up your eyes and take it in set the space and let's begin
spread your page rough out my lines the rainbow lathe cutting fine

oh won't you draw in my love

now taking form so light and loose your grip upon the firm stylus
size me up and lay me down I'll bare it all without a sound

oh won't you draw in my love

the final stroke colors explode the image fixed eternal now

oh won't you draw in my love

Open up your eyes and take it in set the space and let's begin
