Lasso 03:15
Whistle and stand in the light. Feels good to Re-Mind, Unbend from bowed spine. Lasso, to my body entwine. Bind me up then unwind. Make every cell testify To move. Sparrow and swallow dive Holding ribbons inscribed: Shed Welcome Light

Flowerhead 04:17
I was born with dandelion eyes Learned to dance by watching butterflies Comb my hair in a honeysuckle wind Be not contained by any skin that i'm bound in Like a mushroom blooms where a fell tree lay In this sacred spot so to do i Underneath this old growth A brand new seed takes its oath To become a flowerhead I'll become a wilderness I recognize Or stand faded like a worn out welcome sign E.T pollinators plant a seed inside I ain't afraid ain't gonna hide Now I don't miss that old chrysalis In fact I feel like it never fit Underneath this old growth A brand new seed takes its oath To become a flowerhead Every new petal instant becomes a cosmos

Covered up by clouds Beneath a nest of bird wing brows A single tear drop forms to fall From the iris of the eye Wellspring River Rainbow Rise Behold big face in the sky In a mask made out of stars Which has been seen around these parts The hand reveals a face that looks like ours But I have only ever seen the eyes Wellspring River Rainbow Rise Behold big face in the sky

Earthworms burrow and slink Tall skinny pines clack in long echo symphony Twigs fall to pile on soft needle beds Listen to between of things to hear the All Wind plays its own song on discarded guitar strings Lizards do push ups and hide Their own whereabouts unknown Listen to the between of things To hear the All

what did the sermon on the signpost at the steep part of the summit say? the pioneers of yesteryears new frontiers were not the first ones here didja hear? and the neon sign behind the mind says the three eyed man is the one most blind, walk out the outdoor outdoorsmen! then a fiddle played a riddle that split my brain right through the middle cartoon balloons arose at noon and wen they burst they play'd me some groovy tunes! psychic palms sing swan song psalms that calm the bombs and kill all the dot coms! so today ill clear things up said the dirty mirror to the crystal cup, im gon face my fears or disappear to where down turns into up. then the tribes inside completely died and they call'd is selfish genocide and until now ive really tried to stand by yor side but you gotta wait coz this weight i carry is gonna kill me... the heavy loads went down commodes the open roads the one least closed pay back yor debt when death lends you a token or the promise that you made to live is broken the undone opposites came up with a hypothesis freedom without free is simply dom then the thumb started to hum if i had for fingers i could strum or drum in a band on a magick land in a place we call a planet then all the oaths they got on boats but the boats would never float coz the coats worn by the liars were heavy and the moat swallode the oaths like oats slooow and steaaddyyy eyey this comedy is not for me said dante to the flaming sea but the captain of the ship took a whip straight from his hip and said "ots only a river and u gotta be a dead man to cross it! if you got any possessions im gonna toss it!" his guide beside came from behind as Dante cried "this man's my bride and i am his eternal partner! WE COME DIVINE WITH LOVE ALONE AS ARMOR!" then the dream burst through the seams and carried its screams within its streams to cling between the free and imprisoned but the seeds and trees grow where they please without permission. the snake went to the lake and drank its water to stay awake then an earthquake began to shake like a tambourine jelly bean shot by a submarine submachine and when the dust died down death had everybodys attention but the earth jiust wans to make that good connection he said "look my friend its not the end im sending but it is if you keep pretending yor some kind of song with out and ending" and the response made by its residents is still pending... o! the ouroboros sang a chorus and the words were whats in store for us but no one listens to the Riddlesnake blues! no one listens to a sssong sssung by a sssnake

O! Yes its true We were once like you Just a seed planted in the green Till we sang sweetly through the night Give us the light Now I'm a tree And you're standing next to me Saying 'under your canopy it might as well be night' And so you sing Give us the light And now you're free I feel you climbing up my tree Say you're gonna cut through the clouds With your flaming sword Well okay I heard you singing on your way Something like Give us the light

Looking at the front page news Singing Armageddon Blues Say strap on your doomsday shoes And march in loving crews So long farewell goodbye If gone are the days Then today is nigh! I hear the pipers play Looking at the front page news Selling Armageddon Blues You start to believe its true When the hour falls on you So long farewell goodbye If gone are the days Then today is nigh! I hear the pipers play

It was a deaths head of paranoia Seeking out to control ya It wants to get to know ya But will be crushed by the fear destroyer Crushed By Fear Destroyer I slayed my dirty spectre Its not what my mind expected When will my mantra come alive And snap the neck of my devil's mind Crushed By Fear Destroyer

How long was I gone?

When I drive I feel the freeway And I see the way its free So if the sun Is burning daylight Then by that fire I will be The moon gets sharp And cuts at midnight The wound that opens Lights the way At true north lays The heart beat polestar Lets look and see how The planets play Get yr motor runnin Head out on the highway Things are looking real good When you're looking my way Stuck out my thumb Listen to the song I hum...
