lyrics

From the second
State of Consciousness
to a breath the depth of the sea
that can span
the breadth of continents,
between being liquid
and incontinence. You know
both are of no consequence.
Hence we follow common sense,
when we are not tense
but don’t lower our defense
cause we lack confidence.
It’s a false pretense,
we’re seeking a truth
so deep-rooted that
there are no more disputes;
original sin within the holiest fruit
the reason for my pursuit
and my existence to boot
and everyone else
inside our minds and souls,
the only goal I see
is to be in total control
or not to be it’s all philosophy,
it’s got to be.
Sunshine breaking
through the clouds so loud
it’s cacophony, and my spirit
sing in unity,
I hear it as a symphony.

We are all seconds away
from reckoning,
wandering through life awakening.
We need exercise
for the mind to come alive
be revived as it enters
the light in which it thrives.
We set forth
looking for true north
inevitably blown off course,
of course
knowing more cost reports
could cause a loss of sorts
from concentrating on
what matters the most.
The ether’s energy floats
on matter like boats.
The slippery slope
is what everyone hopes to climb
but Sisyphus can’t find
no reason or rhyme
and keeps biding his time
by dulling his mind.
Muscles never moved mountains
despite years of trying
but the mental magic carpet
just might start flying
the moment we are thrown in head first,
not ready to dive,
wake up in the water,
amazed to be alive.
It pays to take a ride
sometimes and not hide
search for the soul inside
and replace pride
with prana and peace
and search for purpose to guide
once we recognize the divine
we find within our eyes.
