about

Smoke Through A Keyhole was written to be exactly just that. To meander and go through different places. Avoiding typical song structure, there are only 4 "songs", if you can call them that, they have about 3-4 movements in each piece. This album is best served taken whole.

Track Name: So It was Then
So it was, so it was then
Come what may, I've been happy
So it was, so it was then
Time turns into space

Things of no moment

Sucking the sky
So-wrong-somewhere
You can stop believing but it doesn't go away
The radiant ones never know what's coming
You can be here if you're gonna be there

Things of no moment

Falling away
Falling away
Falling away
Falling away

Distant fingers searching
In the black blanket of Scorpio and
Whirling 'round replete and gushing
A flooding flash bulb sunrise

Colossal and immortal shine
Envelopes me from a single source and
Hidden in the ceaseless movement
We share our secret sleep and

Diaphanous diamond supreme beings
without morning breath and seeing
Our hands clasp tight to make a fist
Of the impermanence of meaning

The nightingale that sings in the woods
She could, she should, she takes to fly and
I am spitting a rainbow stream to the sinking sky and

Blind me in my ghostly lust of
The flickering nova lighted dust.
Track Name: Inexhaustible Dark
Inexhaustible dark
Undone by the sun
Drifting to awe, to all, to one
Inexhaustible dark
Beyond pursuit
We can't get beyond perception to the truth
Behind every fear is a wish
Behind every wish is a fear
Whatever you can see can see you
Take the words and leave what you give
Inexhaustible dark
Beyond pursuit
We can't get beyond perception to the truth...

Seeds of destruction empty into a river that sings
Never-fading Lady of shade and the emptiness she brings
Fire in the water
Slake the thirsty sea
Cleaving the waves of air that would not and cannot be
From the jaws of the savage beast you will be set free
Like a trampling horse snuffing out the stars that will not cede
Searing stars and gaping jaws of dreams wrought by the sky
Sky giants take root of the flesh and the flamed impetus of light...

Waiting like thunder, I wait for you
Feeling like rain, I fall
Carried on the wind we go by
Skipping across the water to the sand
Mouth to mouth and hand in hand
Mouth to mouth and hand in hand

Thoughts are just the surface of a river of us....
Track Name: The Future Isn't What It Used To Be
The future....

The change is in us...

The future isn't what it used to be...

I'm not really keeping my mind on my mind
Don't look away
All reminiscence is fiction

I'm sorry, so sorry, I love you.

I can hear the sound
A deathless sound all you own...

I'm not really keeping my mind on my mind
Don't look away

I'm sorry, so sorry, I love you.
Track Name: Smoke Through A Keyhole
In the mystery
In the secret
In the tale
Entering your mouth and leaving
Traveling deep
Filling the space... Filling the space...
Receiving from the sky, love letters signed
Nothing forever lasts

Death is a sunny day

Gone

Stillness and quiet like smoke through a keyhole

Gone...consider yourself gone

Death is a sunny day, when everything you love falls away
Death is a woman's smile, erasing everything you'll ever know...and she knows...yes, she knows
Death is a blooming flower, that reminds you of what you've missed in your wasted hour
Death is losing control, letting go the reason, and the hold...and she knows...yes, she knows.
