Track Name: The Deities Fell Short (The Birth of Cat Child)
You know I want to fall in love
But all the deities I find are only images
of what's inside our minds

Wanted to fall in love
but the deities fell short
and then I

Wandered around thinking about...

I want to be a child

If I was a little child I would be an orphan child

Heliotropic dreamland
We are entranced beyond our function to resist
I swim into it

Pre-natural desecration exposing itself in small doses
Re-imagining fixed by the natural light

Before you decide make a wish

Become like the light withheld in Winter months
I believe that the underlying feeling is pleasure

Soul in body wants to come out and spread its wings
Free it flies to the heavens and sings
Track Name: Angel Melts
Angel melts
In your mouth
How does it taste?

On your skin
Light begins
To take its shape

On your tongue
Angel spun
Do you feel it?

In your eyes
Opened wide
Can you see it?

Take it back to the beginning
Retrieve what you no longer see
Track Name: Glossololia
What kind of veil do you wear?
Is it ancient as the moon or did it recently appear?
What kind of game do you play?
Are you having trouble saying what you mean to say?

Does it remain intact?

In dreams we push against the flesh
And we feel for moments
the weightless light of the spirit
We shudder at the thought of returning to form
And we mourn the loss of freedom

The tether pulls tight
And the eyes awaken to another
Empty space

Track Name: Amygdalae
If you look into the open
(I will remember)

I woke(wake) to see
everything evaporating
Now I believe
I can fill the space between
And I will remember
Track Name: Lilalava
It's such a pain when you
know that you're holy but
the only one who knows is you

And it's so strange when you
wake in the morning and
you don't know what to do

It's such a trip when you
look in the mirror and
you wonder if it's true

It's such a pain when you
know that you're holy but
the only one who knows is you

Excavate the body
We exit the body

(the dance of being)

There is a green light
and it burns to gaze at
but entices me so

(the entire being)

Believe me you are holy
I've seen it

If I could hear the songs they sing
There could be a new ocean
wrapped in peppered sleeves
and celebrated wildly through
the sunken mechanical air

Will we rest in giant clusters on trees
and wait for Winter to pass along
its own migration, or will we simply disappear?

Will we disappear?

I don't know

What will we become when we leave the chrysalis?
Demons, angels, butterflies, moths and birds
Track Name: Eidos
There is a photograph
dreaming of being a real moment
a whole life

Stuck in one place
screaming, trying to get out
of its own way
and move on

Inside a body
Like a cocoon
that never can open

Eyes that won't close
and a smile which never fades
it won't go away

Posing through all of its days
