Track Name: White Mare
Ultraviolet divine
Seeking apex
Slip the laughing gas
To the sirens down below
Reduce myself
Into a newer soul
Lit the holy match
Threw the fire in the hole
Shiva’s son will never grow so old
Into the sunrise.
Track Name: Czarina
Black picket fences
Mistaken for a mystic
Nervous cursing hexes
Spirals spinning spineless
Haunted down
To the boundless ground
Glory bound crucible crown

Czarina caught a chiefess
Red handed with a pink slip
Magnificent benevolence
Says go ahead, make the myth

Noble savage digging
Through the garbage
Hands clasp at the mission
Spinning apparition
This is my ghost town
And if you think you can take it back…
Track Name: Aeon Flame
Angels in the snow
I heard where they go
Paradise comatose
This place is some kind of hospital

Fallen angel in a lonesome place
Seething smiles falls about the place

Headstones in the snow
Shadows trade for souls
I want to know where I put my halo

Fallen angel in a lonesome place
Seething smiles falls about the place

Gideon in aeon flame
Licking hits of window pane
Blanking slates and empty plates
Tethered to the temple gates
Drunk again, looks like rain

In the water mirror
Don’t recognize
It’s animal Easter
Numb surprise

Gideon in aeon flame
Licking hits of window pane.
Track Name: Draws An 8
Howling through the walls
Fell on his face by grace it broke his fall
Effervescing effortless
Thrust the rushing crush that turns to dust
Flowers through the fields
Rips the roots that sever cuts to heal
Solarized resonates
Lucid petals cross to pollinate

27 colors monochrome
Only seven wonders in this world
That we called home
And this line draws an 8.
Track Name: Wicked Shivering Columbine
Gumdrop Venus honey drip
Red Sea parting cherry lips
Black bead sockets electric bliss
Telekinesis is flipping the switch

Wash away
Born one mile high
Wicked shivering columbine
When he died, wash away
Rainy day, wash away

Butterfly poison spiking the punch
Sugar slipping on the tip of the tongue
Monolith Moses is the white widow priestess,
An heiress to Isis, and the heir is two

Time saturates forever and a day.
Track Name: Hymn Harmonia
Spies and charlatans, stonewall scribes
Conquered came to tame us
The fire surrounds all sides
Punching touched
Slipping clutched
Rusting dusk
Whispering hush, hush, hush

Iron lungs as catalyst to arch the aching sky
Any volunteers from the audience?
As the fire surrounds all sides
Timeless expired hat tricks from rabbits past
Tempest swirl the vestal chaste
Betwixt ruse and song muses fall.
Track Name: Rider's Roost
Rider’s roost seduced with the juice
Asleep on benches
Nine of a kind, a nowhere mind in open trenches
In a five walled room sooner swoons
With cloudy clout
In a gravity well the tattle tells what it’s all about
I am what you ain’t
March in the saints
Climbing a moonbeam
Wound’s still deep
Climbing a moonbeam
Monsoon swells deep
Time divides faultless lines
Digging a hole where seismic slides
False starts heartless be stilling
Purity’s finally free from distilling
Shanghai surprise same old gun shy.
Track Name: Lion's Den, Chapter 10
Snapping fingers hypnotist
Olive branches in a ditch
The trees are breathing
A little louder than 1000 lions
Clutching the text for so long
Day shine Night shine
Old time hard line
Around, around we go

In your tracks you froze
House is not a home
A friend in need is a friend indeed
Walking around with my halo off
Around, around we go.
Track Name: This is the Zodiac Speaking
Indigo speeding slow
Closer than a stone’s throw
Tremor tones in afterglow
Clear as the coast’s ancient echoes
Caressed solace of oceans sinking
Liquified sky of fishes drinking
Sea swallowed whole never diminished
Driving drifts to flash flood finish
This is the zodiac speaking

Hollow flow obsidian
Invisible meridian
Rippling, crippled, and tame
Pushed through the veins
Slipping further away
Locked inside transparent skin
Delicately flickering
Spoke on the wheel
Spook in the wind
This is the zodiac speaking.
Track Name: Axis Exalt
And we’re swimming in symmetry
Silver shoveling cemeteries
Blind sighting signals signing
Search is missing in tides left ripping
Song less swan has gone conjuring
Charms to chime for listless listening

Earth of salt spinning to a stall
Axis exalt a flawless fault

Walking through the fields
And what I cannot take I’ll surely steal;
Fake; real, think versus feel
Everything = nothing
Track Name: Tempest II
Peacock curls in a white typhoon
Spun 33 degrees
Tigers trapped her in Neptune's tomb
Back at the barrier reef
Deceptive scepter of his scion’s rule
Who shall soon be buried
The spirits protect her never to be fooled
Judged by royal decree

Shimmering shiver deliver quicksilver
Living down river ne’er a for giver
Shivering timbers tongue of silver
Shackled to carry me home

Eclipsing this world and all of its fortunes
Shooting straight to the sea
In a vapor trail with the nom de plume,
‘Finally free.’
Track Name: Gideon & Goliath
Seasons in the sunset breeze
Deep is freezing, come in from the heat
Dawn spreads its golden wings
Waxen idols of waking sleep
Seasons in the sunset breeze
Fever’s thieving fasting’s feast
Reap sewing stitch-less seams
Finger-less clutching free

In the kingdom of the blind
I only need but one good eye
So I can see through this

Seasons in the sunset breeze
Clamor clinging with sharpened teeth
Voice of reason's treason speak
Secret silent cults mystery

I'm going back to the scene of the crime
Dearly beloved clearly spied
One way ticket on a merry-go-ride

Bleeding red all over I can hardly see
Why they call it
Back and down around again...
