Track Name: Life is a Lucid Dream
Life is a dream, a fantasy so it seems
When you wake to the fakeness of day
Fountain of youth, holographic untruth
To deceive her and lead her astray

Before you notice Saturn signs point to her heart
I'll have you tell them: "Take the rings, tear them apart"

Maybe that you didn't wait for the news
Was enough to rewire your fate
Painting a scene, sleep awake through the dream
Karmic candles will remunirate

Before you tell her where the light beneath her falls
Transcending, comprehending mind
Break through the walls!

Silver dreams in fields of light
And you were there and I was high
Upon the grass we'd lie in peaceful wonder
As the sun became the sky (2x)

Life is a dream, a fantasy so it seems
When you wake to the fakeness of day
Fountain of youth, holographic untruth
To deceive her and lead her astray

Before you notice Saturn signs point to her heart
I'll have you tell them: "Take the rings, tear them apart"
Track Name: It's a Ride
Even though she's keeping out of town
You know she will return
Who's the boy she's dolling up for now?
She thrives on your concern
Even though she's taking her time
You know she's gonna lead you on
Nothing worse than trusting all is fine
When everything is wrong

It's a ride
Better be hanging on tight
Projected, electrified
Come on, shake it up, baby
Twist, shout, and shatter my mind

Despite all her cold rain coming down now
I promise you'll survive
It's just a simple sacrifice
Always, always mine
Take the wheel, take her any way you want her
Throw her into overdrive
Don't forget that even though she's running
Cruise control tonight

It's a ride
Better be hanging on tight
Projected, electrified
Come on, shake it up, baby
Twist, shout, and shatter my mind
My mind

Better be hanging on tight
Projected, electrified
Come on, shake it up, baby
Twist, shout, and shatter my mind
(And shatter my mind)
Better be hanging on tight
(Hanging on tight)
Projected, electrified
(Electrified)
Come on, shake it up, baby
(And shatter my mind)
Twist, shout, and shatter my mind
Track Name: Gold Sparkle Sun Design
I'm sailing high tonight
Out digging all this life
Projecting valiant vibes
Collecting multicolored eyes
I'll go and talk to her
The one that I prefer
Does she have eyes for me?
Oh, well I'm going to see
Eclat de l'or soleil haute couture

Every Van Gogh painted star I'd give to you
Taking madness by the hand
Riding this blissful wave
As it comes over you

Before the end of the night (before the end of the night)
I'm gonna make sure you're mine (it's all in the mind)
Gold Sparkle Sun Design (you shimmer and shine)
Oh girl, you look so fine, yea
The way you swirl and you sway (dramatic display)
Oh, just keep doing it, baby (keep doing it baby)
I gotta know how you feel (gotta know how you feel)
Gotta know if you're real, yea

Beyond the doors of night
We cross to pass the pipe
Effervescent release
Beneath the stars and through the trees
I'll guide her by the hand
Direction yet unplanned
Splash her a glass of Chablis
Here's to synchronicity
Amber mistress, my wish, your command

Every Van Gogh painted star I'd steal for you
Passion dazzling, mind expands
Flowing through her crystal cave
As it comes over you

Before the end of the night (before the end of the night)
I'm gonna make sure you're mine (it's all in the mind)
Gold Sparkle Sun Design (you shimmer and shine)
Oh girl, you look so fine, yea
The way you swirl and you sway (dramatic display)
Oh, just keep doing it, baby (keep doing it baby)
I gotta know how you feel (gotta know how you feel)
Gotta know if you're real, yea

Before the end of the night (before the end of the night)
I'm gonna make sure you're mine (it's all in the mind)
Gold Sparkle Sun Design (you shimmer and shine)
Oh girl, you look so fine, yea

Oh, just keep doing it, baby (keep doing it baby)

Gotta know if you're real, yea
Track Name: A Glass of Tears Half Empty
Here's to loving; here goes nothing
I raise my glass for you
Tanked on your teardrops, mind in the gutter
I don't know what to do
Easily amused; she's nothing to lose
I'm coming inside for the rest of my life

This time I've got it, baby, baby
This time I've got it all figured out
I won't let you down, baby, I won't
I won't let you down this time

Once in a lifetime; must be the right time
I've walked this street before
Face in the window; mind in the heavens
As she opens up her door
I can't refuse; I have nothing to lose
I'm coming inside for the rest of my life

This time I've got it, baby, baby
This time I've got it all figured out
I won't let you down, baby, I won't
I won't let you down this time

I trip on Mars, I trip on you
Chrono-synclastic Infundibulum
Ivory rows, balustrade in Versailles
Shanghai pearls rise through your eyes
Your eyes...

And you're taking it down
And I'm pouring it slow
And you empty your cup
And I'm filling it up

This time I've got it, baby, baby
This time I've got it all figured out
I won't let you down, baby, I won't
I won't let you down this time
This time I've got it, baby, baby
This time I've got it all figured out
I won't let you down, baby, I won't
I won't let you down this time

I won't let you down (4x)
Track Name: The Velveteen Valleys
Her placid surface young day glimmers upon
I pull around my ship her sea
I yearn to glide deeply through those waters fair
To pull ashore forbidden lands
Where spiders crawl and weave free up mountaintops
And monkeys swing through sunlit vines
Realign the landscape to flow with the waves
Ride the current celestial

Tonight...

Scatter pollen on her innocent blossom
Traverse the velveteen valleys
Golden idol pilfered from twilight temple
Enveloped in amber: a key
To unlock fast her beautiful reflection
Manifest in reality
Aquamarine daydream spotlights shining up
Ancient storm flooding the delta

Tonight...
Track Name: Sub-Earthen Patchwork Torus
Red roots run through her
Into her: my spiral energy
Gleam gold ascending
Spine staircase
Pace tuned to Gaian ki
Balance, light footstep
Minuet of souls in middle C
Green glow so gracious
Dark spacious
Pervades dazzling esprit

And if you'll notice
The white lotus is bursting through your brain
It's touching Heaven
And Limbo
And Satan all the same
It's all perspective
From the carousel of infinite wisdom
So change your mindset
Direct it directly at the sun

Ley lines labyrinthine
Sub-Earthen patchwork torus
High irrigation
Flow through our parched forest
Ascend to clear light
Conarium awaken
Pious Strobilus
Principal seat of the soul
Track Name: Third Path
I understand that there are now two paths that lie before me
One that will surely lead to utter misery, pain, despair, Heartbreak, loneliness...
And the other to what I most desire
And as I stand here now upon the threshold of divergence
Staring into the void of the space between thoughts
I shut my eyes and begin to see
That ahead there lies not two paths
Not two paths...
Not two paths, but three
A trinity of choice, a gleaming alternative
Tranquil chaos and a puff of the pipe
Silence. Stillness. Formless.
A motionless momentum into the dazzling darkness
It is upon the Third Path that we might retrace our soulsteps
To the Origin where a swirling eclipse of awareness
Evaporates space, disintegrates time
And shape away falls at the commencement
Of the shining forth of pure essence
As you return to the divine
Your destination: The Sparkling Black
And when you get there, you will find...
