Track Name: To the Underground
Relax and enter slow
Be calm remember what you know
See the blue shore that’s the evermore
See the man he needs a hand

So go to the man
And lead him to the shore
If you can convince him to
Release his mind and soul from this earth
But you you stay you’ve got more work to do

To another realm now let’s test your reaction
Face the warrior in the center of this room
Cast your fears away it’s the only way
Cast your fears away it’s the only way

To know your enemy
I will lead you to the door
If you can convince yourself that
Your heart and your mind are of this earth
So you you stay you’ve got more work to do
Track Name: People of the Rain
People of the rain
People of the rain
People of the rain
People of the rain

Keep the awake need
No sleepwalking
Ever falling
On the horizon
Forever gonna feed the ground
Water to earth
Thunder our sound

People of the rain
People of the rain

People got the essence of an ever-present wizard (people of the rain)
On the fissures of your brain
People got the presence of an effervescent wizard
On the fissures of your brain

Falling to earth
I've not a thought in the world
I’ve been the atmosphere
And all my fears have evolved
And when I hit the ground
I’m seeping deep into the roots
I’m not the movement like the wind
I am meant to be consumed

People
Track Name: Alligator Road
Spin stuns the engine down on alligator road
Breathes rust, dust, bones, and knows the stall before repose
Holds catalyst in hand, retreats hypothesis to mind
Sun, folds the conjecture, Moon drops the line

Sun, folds the conjecture, Moon drops the line
Sun, folds the conjecture, Moon drops the line
Sun, folds the conjecture, Moon drops the line
Sun, folds the conjecture, Moon drops the line

Oh distant paradox confined, subdue this defect in time
Hold the mirror to the eye, help the particles align
Invoke the float a roaming stun entrenched to bleed
All trouble to the mountain wash down to the sea

All trouble to the mountain wash down to the sea
All trouble to the mountain wash down to the sea
All trouble to the mountain wash down to the sea
All trouble to the mountain wash down to the sea

My heart is boiling, I heat my design
I’m channeling convection, and I’m easily derived
I pulse, and I tumble, no concealing the ride
Making wake for the humble, laying high and defiant and
Now you know
Now you know
Now you know
Now you know
Now you know
Now you know
Now you know
Now you know
And it's easy
Track Name: Gypsy River Wade
Chemical tracks
Got your hat back on and your armor reactive
And you’re fit like a fox and you’re almost there
Harboring your tooth so the hooch beware
Of the combat kings the imperial state
Fishes in the box every ape that you keep
You want a Houdini subliminal directional mastermind
Find some more enchantment my enchantment arrives

Hello mystery you’ve got the moves
Show me through yeah show me through

Guide me by the stars to your heart
Read me like the wind and follow the scent

Gypsy River Wade
Help me find a way
Gypsy River Wade
Yeah Help Me! Help Me!

Puzzle reaction
If the blast doesn’t kill you will you fall to contraptions
In the mystic night when the shadows creep
If you find yourself lost in the space between
Get a shot of serenity and get some rest
You’ll find your way to enchantment in the evening nest
All the knowns you collect will lead you to the next
Until you break the encrypted messages you left

Hello mystery you’ve got the moves
Show me through yeah show me through
Guide me by the stars to your heart
Lead me like the wind and follow the scent

Gypsy River Wade
Help me find a way
Gypsy River Wade
Yeah Help Me! Help Me!

Gypsy River Wade
Help me find a way
Gypsy River Wade
Yeah Help Me! Help Me!
Track Name: Brothers
You told me brother if I tried to change the world
Someone would probably try to blow off my head
You told me brother if I tried to change the world
Someone would probably try to blow off my head

And you said maybe that’s for the best
Maybe that’s what I’m supposed to do
But what if I’ve mislead myself?
What if I am destructive?
What if I am destructive?
What if I am destructive?
What if I am?

You said you wondered
Could you change?
You said you wondered
Could you change?
Could you take the plunge?
Could you take the plunge to actuality?

You told me brother when the frequencies go out
Do you wonder who is sending them?
You told me brother when the frequencies go out
Do you wonder who is listening?

You said you wondered
Could you change?
You said you wondered
Could you change?
Could you take the plunge?
Could you take the plunge to actuality?

Yeah there you go!!!
Track Name: Lonesome Day
Another day starts off lonesome for me
Strangely I think I prefer this solitude
Because if I’m alone I have no one to displease
Yeah If I’m alone I have no one to displease

It’s a tough nest to leave
It’s a tough nest to leave
It’s a tough nest to leave

So do what compels you
And have what you’re needing
So do what compels you
And have what you’re needing
And keep it close

But don’t kill me
I treasure everything
The laughter the faces the gestures
Our differing beliefs

No don’t kill me
I treasure everything
The laughter the faces the gestures
Our differing beliefs

So do what compels you
And have what you’re needing
Do what compels you
And have what you’re needing
And keep it close

I know I don't know but some things they just seem so orchestrated
I know I don't know but some things they just seem so contemplated
I know I don't know but some things they just seem so orchestrated
I know I don't know but some things they just seem so concentrated
Track Name: Fields
It’s coming down
It’s coming down like water
Rains to fuel you
It’s coming round
It's coming round the valley
Highway 42
Come out love Come out and I’ll wait for you
Wait for me too
It's coming down
It's coming down the vine

Fields keep rolling
Eyes of the wind

Keep that feather strong I’ve known all along
Keep that feather strong I’ve known all along

Fields keep rolling
Eyes of the wind yeah

Keep that feather strong I’ve known all along
Keep that feather strong I’ve known all along
Track Name: Inner Earth
Reaches up from the inner earth
Imposes the reasons for the pulse and the curve
Ties up thoughts on strings all revealing
Erases the feeling
Rumbles the meaning

Keeps to the shadows, lower and deeper
Knows how to balance every hidden feature
Conceals the spells well but needs no walls
Gets to the edge but will not fall
Will not fall
Will not fall
Will not fall

Somewhere through the fog a phantom sense of a secret
Rials up an inner truth, the nature of spirit
Inclined to search the crevice for an ancient code
Always passing by but is never known

It’s never known but starts to show
Keeps the code gives shape to the ghost

It’s never known but starts to show
Keeps the code gives shape to the ghost

Knows looking considerably sways
Leaves traces abandoned at astonishing rates
Sends winds from continuums of parallel space
Hopes to startle the fall, reminds mountains to crawl

And It’s known there’s often a glow
A feel in a note gives reason to float

Eyes as water feet on the ground
Eyes as water feet on the ground
Mind heart river infinite sound
Holds up the mirror and falls
Track Name: Winter
No winter I’m not sad to see you go.
It’s been a long long one.

No winter I’m not sad to see you go.
It’s been a long long one.

Oh vision who am I to know?
Can you show me how to release the inner flow?
Even though I might not be ready to steady the thought,
It’s a march onto the top whether I’m ready or not.

Hello spring I am ready for your rain and sun
For your flowers to bloom
For all to have some fun.
I still remember when the ghostly winter arrived,
Threw us in the icy river and taught us to survive.

I anticipate the summer and I wonder if it’s true,
If this overwhelming sense will lead us to another clue.
With every intention we set,
It brings us closer to the next.
This team can stand any test.
This team can stand any test.
Track Name: Do You Know Me
Do you know me like I know you?
Do you know me like I know you?
Do you know you like you say you know me?
Do you know me like you say you know you?

Do you know me like I KNOW you?
Do you know me can you show me?
Do you know me like I know the truth?
Do you know me can you SHOW me?

Let’s Go

Shadowed darkness in the shades of everything you slept away
Led your home into your eyes let it sink into your mind
Don’t be faulted by your crimes everything has its surprise
In the end you’re what you make EVERY FEELING YOU CREATE
Oh my own sentient sight it’s the constant sight of a hollow mind
All the beats track down to the doubt of my hollow
And that ship breaks your heart and mind

Let’s Go

Do you know me like I know you?
Do you know me like I know you?
Do you know you like you say you know me?
Do you know me can you show?
Do you know?
Track Name: Offer
Oh your offer
Your offer stands

Floating
Floating streams

Directed
Divisive as it seems
It’s all illusion
A waking dream

Reflex
Reflect

On

The eraser
Dejected as it gleams

Calls to move you

Displace you from the dream
Some say delusion

Conflicted and obscene
Disturbs direction

Reveals the waking dream

The offer now sent
Will you choose to receive
The intention you set
Your path through the trees

Oh my sweetest design
I'll carry all your dreams tonight

We'll capture the lift
And sift through the haze
No measures to creep
Could keep feelings away
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
Keep your mind right when sorting through the fray.
I know dark clouds come some days.
Try to keep from folding in, from vanishing away.
Close your eyes, do you feel the same?

If you think you’re needing more, then give something away.
It’s strange how it works that way.
Close or distant paradox can leave you feeling strange.
Close your eyes, do you feel the same?

Free yourself from all the helpless misery.
Yeah it’s gone, it’s gone my friend.
Free yourself from all the helpless misery.
Yeah it’s gone, it’s gone my friend.

No sense in holding back if you’re feeling the pull.
No surprise will convince you to blame.
Phone your friends, they hold the levers and the strings.
It’s easy to receive when you’re awake.

Keep your mind right when sorting through the fray
I know dark clouds come some days
Try to keep from folding in, from vanishing away
Close your eyes, do you feel the same?

Free yourself from all the helpless misery.
It’s gone, it’s gone my friend.
Free yourself from all the helpless misery.
It’s gone, it’s gone my friend.
It’s gone, it’s gone my friend.
Oh yes it’s gone, it’s gone my friend.
