Track Name: Rise
Out to the sets! Pay no need heed to the warning sounds!
Ultramarine. Don't be afraid!
Seventy breaths. The plexus of Next is willingly with you now
For an instant and forever.

A raging sea, the ghost of me, so strange and sinking
Where a soul cannot hide
Plummet the depths, with no regrets
Sunsets of eye closed
Bursting up through the water to the sun.
Soon we are sleeping...

Just like we're gliding along on a lightning chrome yellow sky
to the sea again
For an instant and Forever

A raging sea, the ghost of me, so strange and sinking
Where a soul cannot hide
Plummet the depths, with no regrets
Sunsets of eye closed
Bursting up through the water to the sun.
Soon we are sleeping...
Track Name: Sea Horses Forever
Day after day...

Shimmering, glimmering fathoms deep, spasms seep
Mermaid tongues in long lost Mariner's
Water-filled, water-willed lungs
Taken by storm, green light morn'
Up, Up, Up, Up under your
Blankets of night, fingers of stars, fist of light
Water everywhere, everywhere
Your Seven Sea Smile, a downward spiral
Into the water of your mouth

Day after day...

Unending, descending my life on Leviathan
Sea horses forever, I'm a mirror and you're a mirror too
So blue the oceans parts cotton candy hearts

Up, Up, Up, Up under your

Blankets of night, fingers of stars, fist of light
Water everywhere, everywhere
Your Seven Sea Smile, a downward spiral
Into the water of your mouth

Alright. Okay.

Day after day...
Track Name: Maelstrom
To know like a sinking ship
Dripping from my fingertip
The torpedoed and the damned
In line and holding hands
Oh kill me...

It's pulling me down

The Devil's in the deep blue sea
Angel's have no memory
Triangulating 'round the block
Nothing ever seems to stop
Stop me...

It's pulling me down
Track Name: Tomorrow Never Knows
Turn off your mind relax and float down stream...
It is not dying, it is not dying...
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void...
It is shining...it is shining..

Yet you may begin to see the meaning of within.
It is being. It is knowing. It is believing.
It's not leaving. It's beginning.

Love is all and love is everyone...
It is knowing. It is knowing...
Know.

And ignorance and hate mourn the dead...
It is believing, it is believing...

But listen to the color of your dreams...
It is not leaving, it is not leaving...

Yet you may begin to see the meaning of within.
It is being. It is knowing. It is believing.
It's not leaving. It's beginning.

Know.
Track Name: Traveling At The Speed Of If
First flash at least until the end of night
Smoke and machine dreams hurl in black light
I'm just a hooker with a heart of gold
Everything inside him's been told except the cum shot

Traveling at the speed of if

I'm riding in the back of an ambiance ambulance
In a trace of wide-stance-circumstance
You can't murder the Devil, only change his name
It's still the same lame changing game writing your
Number on the bathroom wall for fame
Too fast to be touched and all too slow to be seen
My words may stop on red, but on yellow they speed

Traveling at the speed of if

Seahorses forevah...

To be or to become that is the question
Now's the truth and past's the secession
I have fallen and I can't get down
The future is the promise we try to keep and lose the crown
My tongue smells like Christmas, this ain't no litmus
Rocking the Switchblade Sisters, rappin' with the Rickster,
No trickster, Saturday night stoop sitting, cement stair sitting, cement stair smitten
As I lay down some low end on her back end kitten
South paw writer, North paw smiter
Heart above my head and my feet above my heart
Without love, passion fades
Made in the shade, undone in the sun
It's all begun 1809 miles away from home

Traveling at the speed of if
Track Name: Evil Octopus
And you take
And you want
And you brake
And you eat
And you sway
And you grab
And you sink

But it's swell...even if you're from the depths of Hell
I wish you well...Il or Elle (He or She)

And you lie
And you wrench
And you wrap
And you wrestle
And you nestle
And you trick
And you smile

But it's swell...even if you're from the depths of Hell
I wish you well...Il or Elle (He or She)

If someone has to be the Evil Octopus, it might as well be you.
Track Name: Nothing Of Any Consequence
Old Man River keeps on emptying his veins
Navigating a sea of shit, it's a motherfucker.
Thundering out with the perilous distinction
Of having no providence to fall upon.

I sauntered upon a most notable occasion
of the silver-tongued Lightning Man.
Vanished youth, putting wood to the fire
She uses no sandpaper on me.

Nothing of any consequence.

Sacrosanct suction. Stretching flicks and flutters
Rolling you in clover. Firebomb fucks in the alley,
Psuedonymphs and sista-womans swinging their
Pendulums of Love.

Nothing of any consequence.
Track Name: Flotsam
Come lay a while
A simple-hearted love
Come into to love
Making to one

The mystification of sex and spiritual love
You know you want
Come. How you used to say it like we were on fire
The future may never come

It comes back to this
The past may never leave
Inside to now to one
Making tonight

"Cause everything we say and do shutters
To the beat of our own heart
Come. How you used to say it like we were on fire
The future may never come

In your eyes we've been waiting all your life
We've been waiting
Track Name: Stormalong
Never too near, never too far
Swim or sink, bottom below
The wind we know, we think

Stormalong, savage serene blue-green
You can only know yourself with eyes closed

Cast away fear, feel the jelly fish swish
Oceanus, Oceanus, swallow you up and down
Feedling life with death, feeding death with life
Come with me like thunder to your shore
Wandering and wondering white water in the breaker
Shake your bones beneath the foam and stormalong
A mermaid, she's so fair with silver sea shells in her hair
We go a-roving in the sun

Above or beneath? You must let go to inherit the sea
Above or beneath? Give way! Give way to the boiling sea
Track Name: Until The Day
A film of the ocean.
Television of clouds.
To think is to stop.
Look North but dream South.
There is no silence, just the illusion of being alone.

You can never turn it off when you find it together.
Until the day begins to darken.
I strike matches at the myth but it doesn't burn.
It illuminates.

Living in the world, but not of the world.
My stillness sleeps.
My stillness shakes
An opulent and gilded single-minded smile.

You can never turn it off when you find it together.
Until the day begins to darken.
I strike matches at the myth but it doesn't burn.
It illuminates.
