Lyrics

Once upon a summertime

a winter springs and falls

before I noticed it at all

watching tiny crabs

living claw to mouth

this wear and tear has sent me south

 

Sailing to Avalon

the coast is free and clear

but they say "You can't get there from here!"

well, I've made cells divide

an oyster makes a pearl

I'll make an oyster of my world

 

But after pressing flesh and pulling Gs

the master-stroke is still eluding me

and even with the settings on default

my universe is grinding to a halt

 

On a starry night

I look up at the sky

and to this day it makes me cry

but howling at the moon

the things I'm grateful for

I feel my feet against the floor

 

But consequences came from every word

that's ever been spoken, thought or heard

and consequences came from every deed

like fruit that's bearing out and dropping seed

Story

Performed at Sunol Jazz Cafe live with Mystery Force. Inspired by a visit to the east side of Mt. Shasta.

Lyrics

Petals drift in space, journeying post-floral

etherial material whose exponent was mortal

 

While the black ops are reverse-engineering UFOs

I am taking flight through a rose

 

'Cause I saw your face through a closing portal

so I kept in pace and went non-local

 

On the lonely side of the mountain, took a drive

at the blizzard curtain, I arrive

 

With the wingspan longer than the Valiant that I drive

by the displaced air, they arrive

 

And their wings sang louder than the gravel 'neath my tires

 

They sang ah ah ah...

Lyrics

The surface sparkles in the sunlight

and with the stars come the ducks and the loons

the laughing lake laps at their feathers, yeah, and it's

 

There in sanctuary there's no undertow

and I get high just being in the know

 

Surrounding mountains are watching the horses

running through the new fallen snow

flakes refracting in the sunlight, yeah, and it's

 

There in sanctuary I have come to know

the joy of kicking up delighted snow

 

the prairie dog and the golden eagle

never have to meditate

on the om in their wyoming, no, because

 

They're in sanctuary - they already know

the freedom in the grasp of letting go

I see sanctuary there within your eyes

infinitely deeply loving skies

Story

Performed at Sunol Jazz Cafe live with Mystery Force. Inspired by the experience of sleeping in my Valiant on Mount Shasta and waking covered in a foot of snow.

Lyrics

studies have shown more is unknown than we thought

sensory overload 

drive in the moonlight up a dirt road

i don't know where to go

turn off the engine watch the snow

ah ha... ah ha...

 

i dreamt i flew with crows

up though the treetops i arose

but then before i awoke

i was taken prisoner let me go let me go

 

a ha ...

 

and in the day i flew away i flew away

 

studies have shown

more didn't know what they bought

i slept all through the night

under a blanket thick and white

a blanket that kept me warm yeah but

roll down the window greet the morning

 

ah ha...

Lyrics

All day I'm in beta

where explicate data 

consort to create a 

covenant to behave

like standing waves

 

Earthshadow a woman

indigenous drum and

smoke rises to summon 

implicate forces here

into our sphere

 

oh - riding on a theta

oh- riding on a theta wave

oh - riding on a theta

oh

 

Earthshadow inspires

unconscious desires

coyote requires 

laughter despite ourselves

or someone else

 

Sympathetic vibration

sensory deprivation

bringing revelation

unto the open mind

from its dreamtime
