Backlit 04:02
I’ve got a house at the crossroads of man and machine Built from billions of cells crawling with cables like ivy Shining black blue and silver, it glamours and gleams With a slick brick facade that I work to keep tidy At night it gives a charming glow I see all those around me that I’ve come to know It supplies me with needs in overflow And knocks them down like dominos I’ve got a house at the crossroads of nightmares and dreams Gazing out the windows see a shift in the psyche I’d say what is is what is not good bad or between But I recognize change and I do so politely Basked in light, long and low Memory and minds working together though The truth in the matter is hard to see Truth in itself is illusory

Lullaby 07:14
Matte white whirls and fields of snow lay stoically between Yellowed sheets are stiffly sleeping over those that try to dream It takes more than a stack of wrinkles to rip free from the bed Gesticulating poignant circles dance up on ahead It takes more than a stack of wrinkles to knuckle under lead Gesticulating poignant circles slowly being fed Matte white whirls and fields of snow nest carefully between Yellowed sheets are stiffly sleeping over those that try to dream Revolutions, revolutions, revolutions Revolutions, revolutions, revolutions Minimotions, minimotions, minimotions Minimotions, minimotions, minimotions Revolutions, revolutions, revolutions Revolutions, revolutions, revolutions Minimotions, minimotions, minimotions Minimotions, minimotions, minimotions Rolling oceans, rolling oceans, rolling oceans Rolling oceans, rolling oceans, rolling oceans Building notions, building notions, building notions Building notions, building notions, building notions Dour men in dark brown suits take note of what was said File claims and strange pursuits insisting they are pled A coal black furnace smiles wide and glows a pulsing red Paper piles slide along moving towards the maw The dour men delight in action, smile and withdraw The engine turns, the paper burns, all without a flaw Matte white whirls and fields of snow lay stoically between Yellowed sheets are stiffly sleeping over those that try to dream Yellowed sheets are stiffly sleeping over those that try to dream

Come out and walk with me out where the deep thicket grows Knock back resistance with all the weight in your nose Plodding together is more fun than stomping for one Nowhere to go but we’ll get there faster if we run Down all your questions with judgments and get yourself in Bounce heavy barriers off of your grey weathered skin See what you want to see hear what you want to hear Drown all the nuance in rivers of cold heavy fear Elephant Walk Going on an elephant walk Elephant Talk Hear how the elephants talk Pachyderm trances aren’t long, but oh boy are they proud Pachyderm dances aren’t song, but oh man are they loud Not courtly nor stately but doubtlessly social the same Forces and fate provide me with another to blame Clearing the brambles has never crossed my angry mind Just the destruction of those to which blame I’ve assigned And once I’ve wrung anger to pool with collective incense I’ll focus my wrath on a subsequent sordid offense Elephant Walk Going on an elephant walk Elephant Talk Hear how the elephants talk

Eyes don’t see Light swim through Mind can’t glean Who it’s for Hidden haze Floating by Self imposed Not by choice Connection Without thought Separate but Close enough to brush skin Naught before Now there are Smiles more times It’s alright in this place Waiting to soak in pools of oxytocin Become unfrozen Dance like the chosen Finding more What is sought Waves drive home what Can be found within chrome Dancing hoards shine Partnership ends the phase Beacon shines forth Calling all to validate Waiting to soak in pools of oxytocin Become unfrozen Dance like the chosen

On my way down familiar paths I’ve never seen before Gliding backwards as I leave the slip and drift away from shore Two and two make ten, waves slap and leave again Sailing southward caught a breeze so strong I’m longing for a moor In my moveable dream sequence Mutable Dream Beacon Moveable Dream Sequence I stand alone among the waves Leave the bay cutting wider swaths in places far and near Laughing softly as the moon rescinds and winds blow in my ears Threw and threw the men, try to affect the zen Bodies bobbing as the ships so pale are sailing through the leers In my moveable dream sequence Mutable Dream Beacon Moveable Dream Sequence I stand alone among the waves Now I lay on exhausted slabs that creak right through the floor Reminiscing on the chart in shams and scramble to the door Few of few dance then, rush to avoid the fen Muted memory escaping my grasp at last to end the snore In my moveable dream sequence Mutable Dream Beacon Mutable Dream Beacon I stand alone to leave the cave

One foot on the cupola Shingles skate down to ground One foot kicks the empty air Searching for purchase in some purposeless nothingness One eye spies through clock rounds Frightened yelps without sound One ear hears through matted hair Searching for purpose in some merciless person-ness Looking out for movement Disaster has been looming Nature against human Ease on lumens Looking for home improvement Finding things to improve Returning to what we were thinking of Make it better, better, better Brighter for lighter for all I need things to improve Returning to what we were dreaming of Makes it better and better and better Beacon of light and of love One ear hears an elephant Rushing through the bustle One eye spies a single mast Searching for purchase in some purposeless nothingness One hand feels a snowy breeze Colored with little specks One hand feels through tattered sleeves Searching for versions of some merciless person-ness Looking out for movement Disaster has been looming Nature against human Ease on lumens Looking for home improvement Finding things to improve Returning to what we were thinking of Make it better, better, better Brighter for lighter for all I need things to improve Returning to what we were dreaming of Makes it better and better and better Beacon of light and of love

Eternity 08:29
Thunder rolls across expanses Trampled by the beat of hooves Nervous patchwork ponies pranced Under lighted sky In seas of grass and plains of water The hues of daylight move Bewildered beaming bodies bothered By the weathered rye Jumbled landscapes baffle reason In search of absolutes A mind of dual intention fights With the silvered creep Nothing new is new to nothing Just amplified by attributes Reconciled past and present Are fighting in their sleep Cluttered clumps of scrubs and brushes Struggle in the heady heat A weighty wind blusters gently Gathering the sand Whether weather winds itself Or watchers will from lofty seats It passes without consequence To the plow or hand Thunder rolls across expanses Trampled into well worn grooves Nervous patchwork ponies pranced Under lighted sky In seas of grass and plains of water The hues of daylight prove Bewildered beaming bodies bothered By the weathered rye Thunder rolls across expanses Trampled by the beat of hooves Nervous patchwork ponies pranced Under lighted sky
