LET GO


go on

everything changes through existence

trying to find where we belong

it all looks the same into the distance

and we think that we're all alone


go on

everyone finds their way

let go

of the things that bind you today


(do you know what i'm talkin about)

freedom, without the free

is just plain dumb


and even if there's somewhere else to go

finding our spirits have been there

and even if there's no where else to go

finding our spirits have been there


go on

everyone finds their way

let go

of the things that bind you today


freedom, without the free

is just plain dumb

(do you know what i'm talkin about)

freedom, without the free

is just plain dumb


ok, here i go trying to describe

what everyone here knows we're all trying to hide

(maybe the intended person did not hear

possibly the message is unclear

all i know is that you must let go)


(rippin guitar solo lol)


freedom, without the free

is just plain dumb

(do you know what i'm talkin about)

freedom, without the free is just plain dumb

(do you know what i'm talkin about)


SUNRISE


deep into sunrise

if i catch the truth before the light

i could open my eyes

only to see ashes before me


and it's

always been my disguise

to let it play out as though i don't realize

that i'm burning inside

but it's my intent to disillusion your eye

while i 

run away

attempt to melt i

run away

trying to fade


and what i leave of me behind

to be perceived as

something else i can't decide

if it's indeed truth or lie

forever consumed in this glittering halflight i


run away

attempt to melt i

run away 

tyring to fade i

run away

attempt to melt i

run away trying to fade


something deeper, unexpected where

somewhere, we're connected

way down i push up with my hands

take me to a place few understand


PUZZLE PIECE


"out of time and out of step again

i'm coming up for

air to breathe a reason to see again

i'm feeling stronger

a little more everyday

i think i'm through wasting away

wanna drain the apathy in me


now i

i refuse to be

just a part of the scenery

bleeding into it

just another puzzle piece

you can't make me fit

you can't make me fit


seceretly sleeping with open eyes

wandering blind

masquerading social sanity

half out of my mind

every little piece of me

fits into this transparent sheath

invisible walls to hold the sound

of my soul struggle to tear them down


i'm not dying to be 

part of this pop-art dynasty

i simply fail to be 

just another puzzle piece


i fail to be

another puzzle piece

you can't make me fit

you can't make me fit

you can't make me


(slammin guitar solo lol)


out of step again

comin up for air to breathe

i refuse to be

another puzzle piece

you can't make me fit

i won't bleed into it

i simply fail to be


SLIVER OF SUN


sliver of sun

burns right through me

elemental

the air surrounding


everything turning inside out internally

to my senses

clarify what i find at the back of my mind

is relentless

pushing and pulling i watch the clouds fly by

i'm depending 

on my own sanity as it's been clamouring

to get my attention


and i

have to hold this thing gingerly

so

 they don't see me working my intentions

now

they'll never know 

how


sliver of sun

burns right through me

elemental

the air surrounding


my blood idlewild

senses like a child

innocent, unjaded

watch the mystery slowly fading

a reckoning to explore

behind every open door

our present joins history

muscles of memory atrophy


everything turning inside out internally

clarify what i find at the back of my mind

pushing and pulling i watch the clounds fly by

i'm depending on

my sliver of sun




RISING TIDE

time, won't make a fool of me

i won't let u down

high, as i want to be

falling up from the ground


to bounce into and out of this

reality

to drown, sinking deeper

staring up at the sea


rising time

rising tide

wait too long and we fall


fly, where i want to be

you can't take me out

if you cannot find me

the ides, taunt me with history

i will not falter, i will rise


to bounce into and out of this

reality

to drown, sinking deeper

staring up at the sea

TEARING INTO NIGHT


tearing into night\

there will be no sleep\

forgotten sunrise\

burning promises won't keep\

we've hailed this day\

and flown astray\

too many suns to blind out way\

----\

won't u free me now\

----\

release me from sight\

these chains that hold me tight\

what now can keep me here\

breathing underground\

we tear straight into night\

alive under street lights\

hidden here in silence\

restless hearts wander\

----\

won't you free me now\

break the speed of sound\

----\

shatter twilight back to life\

between the skies, the sun\

falling faster\

we outrun\

----\

won't you free me now\

----\

tearing into night\

there will be no sleep\

forgotten sunrise\

burning promises won't keep\

TRUE ILLUSION


oddities, cling to me\

lashes down, point to where i've found\

captive in this skin, i begin\

to feel around the softest ground\

out of nowhere, see it shine\

this was once mine... once mine\

this was once mine\

----\

hanging onto whispers in my head\

they call me away\

secret place i dream\

i would be, alone there, in this air\

where echoes of my breathing follow me\

i love it here\

----\

come closer\

feel me now\

come closer\

hear the sound\

----\

it's so quiet here\

listen to the ocean\

from my bed\

beckons me\

what was that she said?\

something in the sand\

----\

come closer\

feel me now\

come closer\

hear the sound\

----\

oddities cling to me\

lashes down, point to where i've found\

captive in this skin\

DESERT IGNITE


i hear the thoughts unspoken on\

the lips of the living\

this patterned history marches on\

as we repeat it\

----\

it's a long road to\

have to follow\

taught their ways but we\

still feel hollow\

----\

deep within these pages\

the blood and sweat are dried\

every generation has lies\

see the criminals inside\

it's a thick web\

but the layers are thin\

weaving within stretched long and wide\

to wind you tight\

seeming and seemingly endless i'm\

lost deep inside\

mirrored in shadows\

i'm reflected in blacklight\

----\

it's a long road to\

have to follow\

taught their ways but we\

still feel hollow\

----\

i remain, lying in wait\

for some incandescent soul\

to make its escape\

we're crawling out of shells\

into this blinding light\

ready to take over\

ready to fight\

-----\

i hear the thoughts unspoken on \

the lips of the living\

this patterned history marches on\

as we repeat it\

STRANGE ENERGY


in this apparent light\

i am waiting\

from this harnessed soul\

i'm escaping\

i've let in all my demons\

and awakened this hunger\

leave me in the fray\

before it pulls me under\

----\

but it's everything\

if i pull you to me\

it's breathtaking\

this strange energy\

----\

it's fierce the passion bleeding\

ravaging my veins\

much too much to even imagine\

to my skin\

it would feel like pain\

don't you dare come closer\

i would back away\

----\

but it's everything\

if i pull you to me\

it's breathtaking\

this strange energy\

----\

and it's heartless at least to say\

i won't let it tempt me this way\

i'll keep it in the shadows, safe and warm\

out of view\

deep in aqua blue, only i see through\

----\

but it's everything\

if i pull you to me\

it's breathtaking\

this strange energy\

almost xtc\

ESSENGER


uncanny how, you linger here\

even still your,\'ca presence is mere\

but it's just enough to take me, far away\

my self control is failing\

and this is where we play \

all these broken pieces, long to find a place to belong\

and thought i'd want no trace left\

i'd feel you anywhere\

splintered and snared\

----\

i'm awake now\

i can take you down\

all i've wanted\

in this moment\

----\

known to me alone\

how long i'll let it remain\

it's my secret and i won't tell\

all these thoughts will stay\

they might just fade\

and it's a very deep well\

all these little things find their way\

to the surface\

but once again will drown\

they know their way down\

down, down, down, down\

----\

i'm awake now\

i can take you down\

all i've wanted \

in this moment\

(more i'm shown, more it takes hold\

burning soul, stranglehold)\

-----\

oh the more i'm shown \

the more it takes hold\

i'm empty to my world\

----\

uncanny how, you linger here\

even still your, presence is mere\

but it's just enough to take me, far away\

my self control is failing\

----\

i'm awake now\

i can take you down\

all i've wanted\

in this moment\

FRACTURE


twisted and tormented\

i spend hours uncounted\

hidden somewhere in my head\

your words, burned therein again\

----\

never has this been so close\

you're standing, a breath away\

my muscles shake under the weight\

of your presence, i hope\

----\

i know heaven inside\

i'll show you the hell i'm in\

lay your hands on me\

through my skin, you'll see\

----\

never has this been so close\

you're standing a breath away\

my muscles shake under the weight\

of your presence, i hope... i don't break\

shatter my limbs into pieces\

i feel my blood running\

dangerously thin\

----\

it doesn't take long, this theivery\

reaching in, tried to set me free\

how could i, turn away from you\

i'm riddled, should make my thoughts mute\

----\

never has this been so close\

you're standing a breath away\

my muscles shake under the weight\

of your presence, i hope... i don't break\

shatter my limbs into pieces\

i feel my blood running \

dangerously thin\

PROPANE


be still my silence\

i am waking from this sleep\

to relive the violence\

once again, if only i'd behave\

----\

and it's a wash in wonder\

what all of this will hold\

that is happening now\

----\

transparent lives leave echoes\

of unstable minds\

fill in these empty concrete cases\

ascending into time\

you have left an impression on my eye\

further we sink into illusory lies\

----\

tight in these caverns\

we struggle for sound\

shallow breath, wicked depths\

we struggle for sound\

----\

be still my silence\

i am waking from the sleep\

to relive the violence\

once again, if only i'd behave\

----\

and it's a wash in wonder\

what all of this will hold\

that is happening now....\

what is happening now\

what is happening now\

RAIN DANCE


i look into this black abyss, i call my mind\

rapid fire, they shine spotlights\

and where are they taking my silence, away from me\

make me rage, make me bleed.... bleed\

----\

and i feel a sudden change, oh it's on my heart\

to sit here and fall apart\

yea i'm watching me\

from out of my body\

yea i'm watching me\

abandon these chains\

free me from the pain... free me from the pain\

and here comes the rain...\

----\

butterflies, it crosses my mind\

how i'll find a way\

but i know i'd burn alive to try\

it's not my place\

----\

and i've only this desire \

to stoke this virgin fire\

she knows not her power\

in this momentous hour\

yea, it's this wind that takes me in\

beneath this pelting rain\

where i'm comfortable so many times to go insane\

----\

here comes the rain \

here comes the rain\

here comes the rain... the rain... the rain\

... and i'll have left you long ago\

but you won't notice my distance\

i won't give it away\

_____________________________________________________-\

ALL ONE


we are all together now\

feeling our way through the sound\

sound\

----\

could there be another way\

when i'm searching\

in the dark again\

can anyone truly see me\

when i'm nailed upon\

my cross again\

----\

and i can feel you right here\

beside me, beside me\

erase my memory\

i'm out of hiding\

----\

i can nearly feel the wind on my skin\

some part of this has escaped\

some part of me has been shaken free... free\

----\

it's just a matter of time now\

for the world to turn away numb\

forget the battle raging on\

settle our minds to limp along\

----\

but i can feel you right here\

beside me, beside me\

erase my memory\

i'm out of hiding\

----\

in the midst of this sunset\

the closing of naivety\

i won't let go of this open door\

welcome the storm\

it's been coming for so long\

some of our hearts are listening\

tread in the distance and now we're\

standing at the edge of it, the precipice\

----\

but i can feel you right here\

beside me, beside me\

erase my memory\

i'm out of hiding\

out of hiding\

THE OCEAN


i catch the moonlight in my hands\

the drums beat where i stand\

our lands are burning on the horizon\

and i see\

where it begins\

i feel\

a turbulent wind\

everyone is silent... ly screaming\

----\

we move as the sea\

waves of frequency\

----\

it was once a great wall\

beliefs in mortar\

could not see beyond the gardens\

that they planted\

alive in our invisible cages\

a stones throw from\

primitive ages\

----\

here we go now\

(undulant sound)\

strong as the ocean\

----\

watch the sands of time collide\

they don't know how to take it for granted\

and just like the tides\

we're automatic\

most of us unaware \

of the rhythm inherent\

----\

we move as the sea\

waves of frequency\

we move as the sea\

deliberately\

here we go now\

(undulant sound)\

strong as the ocean\

Be Like The Water


Somewhere an ancient snowflake melts,

and that soldier's on the march again,

deciding which way the river must bend,

to rejoin the ocean again...

We should learn to be more like the water,

Cuz every molecule of water that ever was here still is here today,

in some way...

The wind cannot break the tree that bends,

and life cannot break the heart that mends,

so become like the water my friends,

and you will persevere 'till the end...

We should learn to be more like the water,

Cuz every molecule of water that ever was here still is here today,

We just force it to adapt and overcome, so overcome...

Formlessness is the way, it is the light, it is the answer...
