Track Name: Strange Birds
Strange birds, all..

Those wings won't bring you glory

As none can relate

to a character not in their story

When you live between the lines,

the signs that guide do blur..

and build those strange obsessions

in the hearts of those it lures

Strange birds stick apart

Dancing in the dark

is the avenue

Teleprompter faces,

the faceless multiply

In drag, but not so holy-
this game they deify

Blinded by the shimmer

of social auctioneers

They're for whom the bell tolls;

strange birds don't adhere..

Strange birds stick apart

Dancing in the dark

is the avenue.. in the avenue

Strange Birds..
Track Name: Aberration
They tell you it's a lie

to fill your world so full with pleasure

to make you deny

that it's all right to live your life in leisure

Take it in stride ~

It took a while to get woman from the kitchen

The truth can't hide

that freedom is it's own ambition

Grow your hair ~ and paint your walls

Free your head ~ and bounce your balls

Not to be a freak..but you may find your chic

as an aberration..

Cuz the first to say that- the world was flat

was an aberration

and the first to fly- they all just sighed

"He's an aberration"

Then the first to the moon- they called him soon

an aberration

So now maybe you- should have them call you too

an aberration

So they tell you to change

to live up to their expectations

Tell you you're insane

You'll ignore their warnings with sweet elations

That's all right ~

You don't have to borrow from their limitations

A bird in flight

never asked a soul for congratulations

chorus

you have my admiration

congratulations..

become an aberration

you're an aberration
Track Name: Evermore
Love is evermore

Evermore until the day it walks out the door

Love is the atmosphere

An atmosphere evaporates, bone-dry from tears..

and love is the magic key

but you turn it ~ and all the magic might crash reality

Beware.. of love.

Love is eternity

Eternity until you walked away from me

Love, such a strange delight;

the endless flight - that vanishes in pure day light...

and love is the stratosphere

A height so grand, it thrills you..til it could kill you, dear

Beware.. of love.

Laid bare..evermore..by love.
Track Name: The Money Song
Why medical solutions have been silenced as hazardous

Why we destroy the lungs of Planet Earth; rainforest

Money is of what money talks

Why textbooks misinform

Why cars still run on oil

Money is of what money talks

and la-dee-dah...

Why we learn things that feel like a distraction

Why we live in a constant state of deception

Money is of what money talks

Why things are built to break

Why the media reality is fake

Money is of what money talks

and la-dee-dah...

(money song..money song..money money)

Why weed that's curing cancer can't get past the legislature

Why more watch the Superbowl than a year's worth of PBS Nature

Money is of what money talks

Why energy is..

Still not free is..

Money is of what money talks

and la-dee-dah...
Track Name: Magic Omens
Day to night falls like a blanket

across your mind

Still a light on ~ past the place

where eyes have gone blind

Magic Omens ~ keep me true

Magic Omens ~ opens up to the day,

the colors show through..

Enter through doorways

made once of walls

Know that you're always

in reach when the magic calls..

Magic Omens ~ keep me true

Magic Omens ~ opens up to the day,

the colors show through..

Signals of a language

the world responds from inner-terrain

Something of a strange witch

encoded in the details of your brain...
Track Name: Walking On Water
Fluctuation abides yet we keep from falling

In the world of the mind, nothing is solid

Find a balance inside, and simply call it logic

Walking on water is easy

walking on water is easy

We put thoughts in motion

You're the waves in your ocean

Follow yourself to your home

Walking on water is easy

Walking on water is easy..

Just make a sound and those waves start rolling

Thoughts are unbound, the world is decoding

Put your feet on the ground; you can know the whole thing..

Walking on water is easy

Walking on water is easy...

do do do do dooooo

Follow yourself to your home

Walking on water is easy..

walking on water..
Track Name: Phoenix Lights
It was the last days of winter and..

the lights came from over the mountain

Ten thousand people.. saw them..

Most remembered every detail - but

some experienced missing time

that was only revealed by the photos

they had taken... Phoenix lights...

The lights came over the mountain

And there was nothing at all to fear..

Yes the lights were there over the mountain

..and they're still here...

It was a soothing amber, the orbs..

hovering motionlessly

Stood there in silence ~ but there for

thousands to see..

for 106 minutes - a ship a full mile long...

This, the mayor and the senator agree.

The lights came over the mountain

And there was nothing at all to fear

Yes the lights were there over the mountain

And they are here..

Nothing to fear.

All one night in Phoenix...

All one night in Phoenix

There were many lights..

over the city......
Track Name: Profit Perverts
I hear there's another war in store

Deceptions of a matador

for cultural domination

under the guise of salvation

They say you like it like this

but it's just a drowning kiss

And it's all to make some sick man's dreams come true

It's all to make a sick man's dreams come true

What do profit perverts.. have up their sleeve for you

What do profit perverts..have up their sleeve for you

It's all to make some sick man's dreams come true

and the profit perverts.. they're comin' after you!

Got no intention to sustain

Crumblin' cities, open veins..

Just more manipulation

from perverse foundations

so these powers can grow

It's just a caveman show

And it's all to make some sick man's dreams come true..

(chorus)

So we allow this to continue

Clown faces growin' in you

of consumer identity;

makes us shallow and greedy

And we learn not to know.

Become a part of the show.

And it's all to make some sick man's dreams come true..

(chorus)

chorale: "It's an honor / to be a species /

on this planet / but then what he sees /

oh they rape it / what gave them birth.. /

Rape the mother / for all it's worth /

PROFIT perverts / Profit PERVERTS

PROFIT perverts / Profit PERVERTS
Track Name: Mirrors
People pick up a cellphone

like they used to reach for a cigarette

to transfer social anxiety

and personal tension..onto on object..

Staring at mirrors

and theres nobody there

Everyone's staring at mirrors;

the picture's all too clear

Feel the screen..of the Mirror Machine..

Feel the screen..of the Mirror Machine..

calling.....

O baby baby baby baby o touch me..

O baby baby baby baby o touch me..

O baby baby baby baby o touch me..

Take a check inside, to feel for this rising ship

You can take a cool ride..through my warm lips..

O baby baby baby baby o touch me..

People pick up a cellphone

like they used to reach for a cigarette

to transfer social anxiety

and personal tension..onto on object..

Feel the screen..of the Mirror Machine..

O baby baby baby baby o touch me..
Track Name: Sanctified
In the wilderness of your consciousness

is the river to lead you down the path to what you'll be

Though you walk alone - you come to own your soul

and you dance to your own voice..for you know you are free

Sanctified

the soul of the universe unites

I call upon the wind and the rain

to embrace my source of pain

and leave me sanctified..

The dark and the light are just visions in your mind;

roots of power where you plant them..and growing like a seed

Embodied with fright is the everlasting night ~

asks only wisdom to light the pathway..

so your mind learns to see

Sanctified

the soul of the universe unites

I call upon the wind and the rain

to embrace my source of pain

and leave me sanctified..

You don't know it - but we're one

with the forces that we fight

so take your poor shadows

and hold them to the light..

The battle is on the inside..

In the wilderness of your consciousness

is the simple surrender - to transcendental harmony

And pierced by the light .. like a bird just taking flight

song of freedom..as he wanders..to the sea..

Sanctified

the soul of the universe unites

I call upon the wind and the rain

to embrace my source of pain

It leaves me sanctified..

It leaves me sanctified..

Leaves me high..

Sanctified
