Track Name: GOLDEN CHORDS
days fog / can’t see past the edge of what’s gone but i’m hoping i’ll try / and the rain shines / and the showers and the fawns in the field arrange in my eyes / so why fight? / with nature’s call around / you talk about frights / in the verse of the every song / you tell me what’s wrong / but what’s right? / you’re seeing creation / that crushing never ending change is so full of love / and so you’re waking to face the change in your role / and with each restless shiver you wretch from your soul / you’re asking / is that something I’m not anymore? / a brother to shake these broken chords till they turn gold / and I tried / to survive without that gold / and wondering why / our exchange can never hold / am I what’s wrong? / well what’s right? / stop trusting in demons / you’re scattered ever lonely buddy but so full love / please stop repeating your terror you choose what you see / it’s always “what if?” and “why not?” / man you gotta just be / simplify define your goals and watch them grow / be your own true self the you that I know / days gone / as I peer past the edge of what’s lost I’m starting to cry / but the rain’s fine / and the tears feel warm and my body is humming alive / in time / you’ll revive what you thought dead / you’ve stopped your own climb / on the verge of every end / you tell me what’s wrong / but what’s right? / stop believing your being’s been shattered and distorted cause brother your so full of love / and so you’re hoping to make a change in your role / repeating mantras to find some ground for your soul / stop asking / Is that something I’m not anymore? / a brother to shake these broken chords till they turn gold
Track Name: JUST AM
standing in the desert faces stare back from the dunes / brought here by courage or delusion i won’t stop but i feel ripping mad / so i am crying words that don’t make sense to me or them / but i am singing i am singing beams the child inside then disappears again / still i go on repeating words of loss and failure / of every choice that i gave up to guardian anger / i hope that you can feel life / cause even watching descent i see light // but i recall i called you hate / repeated words get locked and phased / and these words attach / some words like stone / you find with time you build more than sow / you build a house / you build what you know / I wonder if that’s home // tangled up at home unloved intentions all i see / all those collected stacked and fretted over treasures leave me spinning so / i’ll leave the door wide open my old friend there’s more unfound / it’s time for letting wounds and breaking through these pretty patterned knots i twist around / dad i can’t see i’ve lost my voice i need direction / reweighed each choice so many times i’ve lost reflection // you’ve got to let go so you’ll grow / then even when you feel blind you’ll still know // so i asked again when i get home can i build space? / and clear these ripples of disorder and erosion i feel nipping mad / and when i find my way through all discolor in my mind / swear i’ll never leave imbalance or impatience standing guard or keeping time / cause i hold on to things that dearly need replacing / broken time ruling pain and failed aging / when i let go i just am / conjured back to myself i just am // in holding on i’ve grown too tight / my joints are cracked my eyes gone white / stop holding / don’t wait too long your face is sown / your fears won’t fail and new ones will show / only steps you take will help you to grow / and when I hope i hope i’m home / i’ll step inside and i’ll feel grown / if only / don’t wait for safe just fall inside / and wisely forgetting to take / that treasured stain you’ve always relied / i wonder what you’ll show
Track Name: FOOTY
all my life i have travelled in needs / now i’ve found what i crave / you’ve got to be brave / i know it’s hard when you feel i’m sleeping / friend in rain i’m awake / let’s shake / we’ll shake // and whether you would or you won’t isn’t traced across every word / the place and the smell will instantly place your evident crime / rotten replaced regrown and renamed / a bottomless game / and if you’re unsure just look in his face / you’ll see he’s alright // he’s fine / the same as all man / in time i’ll have to ask him // i just want to see you happy / man i know that you try / your high / always fine / you’ve got to get // and when you’re awake your eyes shine bright / you’re so fine / my pride lifts me up into places so right / and I know on my mark / we’ll trespass again and again it’s all mine / and i’m all fine / i’ll always tear up when i see how you shine / in your unwary nights // you’re fine / i’m rolling over / this time / no run for cover / he’s shaking it
Track Name: GOOD HOUSE
by my hands or with fire / i’ll be cleaning black temples that i’d built in defense / my polishing shines i find / spent my time fearing age / and retreating from answers to questions i’d asked / in each passing stage i poked myself blind / i lost time / i lost minds // you might find that there’s eyes / you might find only your eyes / well retrain them to send / at first just pretend / but later for searching much further / each trail leaves you open / decide you’re light / cause brother it’s time / you’ll always find life // hold on / keep up / I’ll show you inside / in this / good house for it’s light / i spend all my time / here taste good bread / i bake for my mind / inside I fold my well lived advice / it says / when you feel tired / there’s more left inside / slow down / breathe deep / if you cry in mourning revive / lay down / be quiet / is this how we pray? / my hands / can show us the way / but feel how they shake // too bright / but then too dim / you always find reasons you’re frightened / so frightened / that you won’t go in / and reason may fight you / so even then // Don’t wait / feel shy / come sit at your place / cause you can / your body rewired / you may feel strange // breathe in without / breathe out you’re alright / breathe in with all / breathing out all that shame / no cowering fright / keep building up waves / replenish in flight // so i breathe my way down / and i breathe my way deeper / when i’ve grown i ascend / at sea see my hands / they’re stretching much further and stronger they’re holding my life to the fire / no tries / fire builds fire // shiva come home / i’m ready to play / when we dance / great heights are required / I won't feel ashamed //divine and spun right round / the center unwinds you’re unfolding / divine and spinning round / your pleasure is binding / and held in trance // as I spin / i grow / embracing decay / with each turn / delight comes alive / loss slipping away // breathe in without / breathe out / you’re alright / breathe in with all / spit out all that rage / your safe now don’t fight / your body’s engaged / just flow and get right / like following angels / you're following angels
