Track Name: Theme
Open you soul lens, so then a little hope will get in

There is no sense in knowing the moment the moment will end

We know the reasons, but we don't need them

We are holy heathens, totally breathing now



Song spin Tonglen with a silent shout

We inhale sin and we sigh light out

Recycling, yeah we're siphoning doubt

We spray our faith in a violet spout



Got to let it all out right now

Only "you-know-who" can show you how



Can Love?

Let's see

Stand up

Lets sing

Manifesting the new Jerusalem blessing

Each note lifts us

We free float and we drift up

We know the ancestors are with us.

Their theme goes "Long Live Love"



You can tune in with your third ear

If you listen close enough you will hear

Every single sound start to disappear

While the Metatone rings loud and clear
Track Name: Fear Pressure
I can be at one with all reality

Until something threatening starts threatening me

My reaction happens cellularly

And emotion spontaneously starts bubbling up


That's just fear pressure, here to mess me up

Fear pressure, here to test my love


I can be at one with all reality

Until I see my reflection staring back at me

I don't look enough like the sun, no matter how many SunChips® I eat

My complexion is just a little bit spotty

It's bubbling up


That's just fear pressure here to mess me up

Fear pressure, here to test my love


I'm not afraid

There is no need to escape

I'm going to wade straight into the fray

I'll shoot an arrow into the heart of the devil

It will not kill him, but it will leave him disheveled


Nothing can be done with all reality

As soon as I see an intoxicant sitting next to me

I'm weaker than a baby bird, soaking wet in my nest

I feel a not-so-innocent chirp rising out of my chest


That's just fear pressure
Track Name: Gemiknife
Gemiknife

Sharp on both sides

Doing battle with the shadows and slicing up the light

She went a little to far and got a little to sharp

She could cut out God's heart and never get dull at all

Not a drop of blood would fall


She may assure you her motives are pure

But you can never quite be sure

The Gemiknife seems nice at first

But she will end your life with a gesture


And tell you it's love, but you know that it's not

She'll tell you it's love, but you don't know what she's talking about


The switchblade says switch places

No matter which way that it faces


Gemiknife is THE device of blasphemy

Carving something sardonic into the bark of the World Tree

It wasn't even fall, but she cut off all the leaves

I think she thought that Eden needed gardening

She split Adam and cleaved Eve into a couple

Oh the Apple!


Eve threw that apple into the air

The Gemiknife cut it in half until it was a pair of pears

There is nothing you can do with that sort of fruit

You've got to eat it right there

But please, please, please, please don't eat the seed

Oh no, now you've got to grew self aware


I am what am I?


She tells me it's love, but I know that it's not

She tells me it's love, but I don't know what she's talking about


The switchblade says switch places

No matter which way that it faces
Track Name: Happy Rebirthday!
I know you want to know how new I am

I don't really normally go there, but for you I can

I wasn't born yesterday, it was much more recently

I'm a new, new man

If you want to get accurate about how far back I get, you'll need a second second hand



What time is it?

Right this minute

I'm younger than an infant

Right this very instant



I'm gonna die, but not until it's time to get brought back to life

I will take any form that I can find



Happy Rebirthday!



I may try to take you on a date

We can go anyplace that's child safe

To tell you the truth, I'm a little bit young for you

Baby, I'm under age

You can be too, the only thing you've got to do is celebrate



We don't need a cake that's chocolate

We don't need a pinata

We don't need to drink pina coladas

The only thing that we've got to do is sing

Exactly the same thing

Perfectly in sync

What are the words?

Hold on let me think....



Happy Rebirthday!



"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to "
Track Name: RuRuRu
Oh little sweetie pie, you are my life

And if you need to cry it is alright

Every tear you loose will be put to good use


When that first tear comes, why waste it?

Stick out your tongue and try to taste it

I'm sure that tear you cry will sort of satisfy


If the crying won't stop, I know where to go then

Up to the mountain top where everything is frozen

Then every tear you make will be it's own snowflake


If you keep crying like that, we'll get a whole tub full

And you can take a bath with millions of bubbles

We'll use your finest tears to wash behind your ears


Tears rise in a tide of transformation

Crying synchronized, call it a rain dance

Every tear is a pair of feet, falling with the beat


Go on, cry me a river

Our boat is going to glide down the middle

Every tear will send us to the ocean


You can grieve an ocean, there is no end

There is no liberation without suffering

This is the real reason that you have salty skin
Track Name: When the Dreams Come
I want a love like a panopticon

Everywhere at once

I don't give a shit if I'm Omniscient

I just want to kiss the sun

Until my lips are numb

Until my eyes are gone

Until my mind is silent

Until I have no tongue

Until I slip into oblivion and it all starts to stop

If you want to climb a mountain, you need to start at the top


Time is a fraud

So my mind belongs to God and God alone

The thoughts roll past

To each it's own

I sit and laugh, it's all a joke

I can take a nap because now I know


When the dreams come I'm going to leave them alone


I want to die like styrofoam

Really, really slow

Almost imperceivably so

'Cause I don't need to go

But when I go, all reality is going to be buried with me

You best believe my tomb will be full

Then I'll have my scarab carefully roll my shit into gold


The goal cannot be gotten

So my soul belongs to God and God alone

It's a long, long way back home

I'm on the path

I stay on the road

It's a good thing that the way is known


When the dreams come I'm going to leave them alone
Track Name: 2 Fine 4 Time
Even a baby's smile goes away after a while

Beauty must fade like a newspaper page that's been left out in the wild

Even the most fascistic fashions get to going out of style

Even the grandest business man will grow into a feral child

So turn up the music

We love it

We lose it as soon as the groove has expired

Silence is endless until someone senses it, and then says something inspired


Oh Saturn why won't you bend?

Grant her an exception

You can't let your sickle tickle her skin


When she's 2 fine 4 time

She should not be subject to the forces of nature

I want to hit rewind every time that I play with her


My big hand on her 6

Her little hands on my 9

It's at times like this that our rhythms get intertwined

We're on lock like the nuclear clock

Keeping perfect time

I lick her tick, she sucks my tock

What's hers is mine

The form of our skin is reborn every instant

Enormous, Infinite, Divine

The end has begun

We've crossed the event horizon

The Omega point is starting to shine

Oh sweet duration, please come to an end

Put an end to the endless mind

Little death, armageddon has me crying


She's 2 fine 4 time

She should not be subject to the forces of nature

I want to hit rewind every time that I play with her

2 fine 4 time

I can't stand to see entropy deface her

I want to take her time in order to savor her


Oh Saturn!

Why won't you bend?
Track Name: God Is...
The ladder that I stand upon leads straight on back to the mother

I'm glad I put my hands on Thanaton III and made contact with the Other

It put a little seed of light in me, which I proceeded to smother

I want to make that right, I'll feed and feed and feed it

They're never going to give me another

The love of my life lives within me, it is my duty to discover her

I'd make a pretty good wife

I'm down on my knees, praying that she'll teach me how to love her

Apprenticing with the immortal Queen, She is teaching me how to suffer

I speak the vow, I wear the ring, and I take God as my lover


I owe my life to the most high: YVHV

Om

I and I

The OverSoul

Mind

Tridentity

It took one breath and it spoke one line

4 little letters recombined:

ATGC

(that spells me)

L.I.F.E.



God is Love

What am I?

I really need to decide


Who can present to me, my true identity?

I am confused beyond belief

Please tell me who I'm meant to be


My soul flies in a spiral

That's how I know I'm a vulture

I've got my eye on the body of Zion

I keep getting just a little bit closer

Until terror is mine

At the roar of the lion

The predators tear and they torture

I see the circle of pride and I want to get inside

Please tell me how I can approach her!

Even if I tamed that mane, the teeth would remain

I am so sure

I know it's profane, but I'm going for big game

In God's name I am a poacher


I owe my life to the most high: YVHV

Om

I and I

The OverSoul

Mind

Tridentity

It took one breath and it spoke one line

4 little letters recombined:

ATGC

(that spells me)

L.I.F.E.


God is Love

So am I

All I have to do is try
Track Name: ChildBeing
Your soul can mate with it's simulacrum

You can penetrate Fate with your Will-In-Action

You can ejaculate all of your compassion

Fertilize that egg (the egg of the cosmic serpent)

You can let it gestate, but you can't take it out until it's done

Until the holy water breaks

Until that last contraction

And on your rebirthday, you'll be staring straight into the Central Sun

It feels so great to see that you're related to the only One


Look at you!

So brand new!


Childbeing I am your child

Childbeing you are my child

Childbeing we are your child

Childbeing you are our Childbeing


Sitting in your highchair, right there next to His Highness

Sucking on a pacifier, the Pax fly from your rhythmic kiss

Time for breakfast, let's eat!

Suckle from the Singulariteat

As soon as you move to solid food, you can eat a fruit from the World Tree

Shake shake shake shake that rattle, that's the burden of modernity

Take those first steps, it's time to travel

You can time-travel through eternity

The Word hovered over the water, the same first thing you learn to speak

As soon as you get your four little letters, you can pick a name for Maternity...

Momma!

The same one that you came from you will become, eventually

The son is the father and the father is the son

Everyone is their own baby


Look at you!

So brand new!


Childbeing I am your child

Childbeing you are my child

Childbeing we are your child

Childbeing you are our Childbeing


Don't grow up

Grow out!
Track Name: Dark Empress
You really spark my interest, looking like a dark empress

I want to embark on a quest to find what's been on your mind like a headdress

I want to crack you open like a beverage, thumb-tab-got-that-leverage

I'm going to pry those storm clouds open and poke into your heavens

Baby grrl I was hoping just to see your deity, and maybe pay a little reverence

I'll pray for you like a reverend

I'll get you so fired up that I'll probably have to pay you severance

I love your energetic essence, all feminine with fresh scents

Do you give sex lessons?

If yes then sign me in a we'll spin "Welcome Freshmen"

Find out just where you want me

Give me that placement testing

I'll fill you up like a Scantron® bubble

Baby:

(b) beautiful blessing

(c) come see me again

(d) delicately deepening

(e) endless love (all of the above)

Make me never want to leave my skin

I take no credit when I spit it

It was God that said it

Get it?

If the Trinity has something to say then I get out of the way and I let it

Jameta is just a set of wet lips and a tongue that disencrypts the primordial word

(Which I heard uttered through the humanuscript)

Excuse me but I've really got to get going

The boom-boom-bum-bum-bip by Metatone

That's my band!


Spark my interest, you dark empress
