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.

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....

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.

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.

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.
