Track Name: The Current
a halo of light
reflects around
the perimeter
round and around
shine through a broken prism
on the water
cut off from the sun
that's powered all that you've done (it echoes)
the current
keeps pulling along
like a serpent knowingly coiled
around and around
the perimeter

a speck of dust
on the mirror's surface
casts a shadow
that grows with every glance
like a wordless whisper
in a hall of glass
potentiality
reflecting all that you see
as we move through the dream

purify my mind till I have no use for mind
purify my heart till I have no use for purity
Track Name: Remember Child
remember child: you are a universe within yourself
the sun and moon and stars above all have their parallels
inside each microcosmic vessel of your human cell
you are the alpha the omega, heaven and hell
Track Name: Without and Within
we looked for you among the people
we looked for you among the gods
we looked for you in the cathedrals
we looked for you among the stars
we looked for you in silent waters
we looked for you in desert sun
we looked for you in love me harder
we looked for you in turn me on
we looked for you in el dorado
we looked for you in babylon
we looked for you in aeronautics
we looked for you in america

without and within
illusion arrives the moment we begin
reflecting a light
mistaking itself for a pattern from outside
go along with the scene
and reinscribe the logic of the dream
or roll along to the sea
where even the gods die of temporality
Track Name: Great Cold of the Night
as long as the animal lives he is running
as long as the animal lives he is running

as long as the man lives he is running
as long as the man lives he is running

in comes the great cold of the night
she is coming
in comes the great cold of the night
she is coming
in comes the great cold of the night
she is coming
in comes the great cold of the night
she is darkness

(repeat 2x)

the prisoner is free
the prisoner is free
the shadow here has disappeared
and your prisoner is free
