about

Recorded in an attic completely alone with thoughts and reflection, wisdom & intention, over the course of a week, the songs on this album were recorded in one-take for the purpose of capturing the moments as they existed in time. If you listen closely you hear the nuance of a recording space, of the breath as it hesitates, and becomes determined again to the commitment of surrendering ... to" unlearn what I was, to become what I am " There is a Light in Distance. You Can Hold it inside Your Mind.

Track Name: Unlearn
all of the things you think are real, we have to unlearn
Track Name: A Magical Place
a magical place to focus the soul 
a magical place anything’s possible
whatever you need 
whatever you make, believe

a magical place the focus is free
a magical place anything we see
anything is possible

Whatever you want 
whatever you need
You can make - but you have to Believe

This beautiful place 
I used to know welcome me home
welcome me home

This beautiful place we all used to know
with open arms it welcomes you home

Make & Believe
& believe & believe 

We all know what to expect 
We just don’t know how to react

A magical Place to focus the soul
a magical place we always can know
a magical place anything’s possible
whatever you want 
whatever you need
whatever you need
from the cold anything is possible
Track Name: Sparks
I see you everywhere I love your face your hair 
I don’t know what it is why we crossed paths here
I feel like I’ve seen you before You caught my eye 
as soon as you met the door I hit the floor

I just felt a spark across my heart maybe it’s a memory 
maybe it’s a future thing maybe I just like your vibe

We appear in the strangest places I could be anywhere
They say that people move in circles and those intersect somewhere like gears

I just felt a spark across my heart
maybe this was meant to be maybe it’s just what I need
maybe it’s just small talk 
I take this breath and let it begin 
let the laugh reign, let the laughter reign now we can share the name
let the laughter rain

sparks fly across the sky jump my heart with a start
I don’t know why sparks fly across the sky 

I know why we spark !
Track Name: Dancing Like the Sun
Breathe In and Feel 6 Billion People 
Tremble in Life Alone
Breathe Out and watch it Reveal
Watch as the Path unfolds around
As 12 Billion Feet hit the Ground

Well Gods in All of Us
Create what's Becoming Us
The Convergence of Conscious Us
Well, Well, well

All at Once We're Dancing Like the Sun
For an Eternity Billions are as One
And Now we're here to Burn Brighter than our Eyes
For Everyone we've got to Learn to Fly Sometime

Breathe In and Feel 6 Billion People 
Tremble in Life each feeling so alone
Breathe Out and watch it Reveal
Watch as the Path unfolds around

Well Gods in All of Us
Create what's Becoming Us
The Convergence of Conscious Us
...When we take That Jump Together No Need to Look Down
We Found we have No Memories of the Ground

And All at Once We're Dancing Like the Sun
For an Eternity Billions are as One
And Now we're here to Burn Brighter than our Eyes
For Everyone we've got to Learn to Fly Sometime
Track Name: Here on the Ground
Well I guess I saw it coming
I was too late to breathe oblivion
Too much faith in one man
So much hope in our hands

kaleidoscope from your clouds
Im looking up your looking down I’m here on the ground

I always meet the beast in this defeat
I’m riding on doubt
Well I always saw it coming
When you’re so far down

kaleidoscope from your clouds
Im looking up your looking down I’m here on the ground

So I get into position
gonna find a mission
gonna find the answers
going to find myself
going through the list of
every inquisition
everything that was
everything you are

floating on the clouds
floating on the clouds
oh im here on the ground
floating on the clouds
floating on the clouds
i found my ground
i found my ground
i found my ground on your cloud
Track Name: Spiegel
round your house, you're sure you're there;fair.
Track Name: The Color of Tears
the color of tears the color of fear
the color of love a color we share

The water is clear flowing free
After the tears we see we can rebuild anything we need
Let go everything we know
After the tears clouds clear
and we see more than we ever did before

the color of tears the color of fear
the color of love a color of fear the color of tears

Wash it out of me
Please wash these old ways out of you
Old hate old weight gone stale
Can a man ever know what it’s like to
Come undone the insides dropping down so hard
we hit the ground to know the lowest place and restart

the color of tears the color of fear
the color of love a color of fear the color we share
the color of tears nothing to fear nothing to fear nothing to fear
Track Name: The World Stopped Spinning (twss2)
I felt a comfort in your eyes that blew away the skies arms like oceans
A journey to your mind standing here would you say we are wasting time losing focus
I didn’t look until there was nothing left to begin
if whatever could be cant was & is always here

The way to the ocean its filled up
We’ll make room forgive
Sobbing and sulking there’s always a way to feel safe

Sitting where I was 10 years ago life was a different picture show
we make it up as we go
all the ways to know I was ok,
i was no dungeons no judging no fun no fun

The way to the ocean its filling up
Make room forgive older and told her
That's something you never do 

You choose and you race for appreciation soars
But nobody was here to begin with in June

I know it’s nothing if we don’t try
So why do all the mice pick the cocaine we’re choking on
Everyday heroes deceived by the same old
jokers and morons pathetic no wonder
We show up ready for combat just need a little action just need some reaction
Teach them to refocus their worlds their “un-holies”
But nothing could be the same anyway

The weight of the ocean
It's filling up 
I forgive It’s nothing like memories
So I let go and I swim in
Track Name: The Way to the Ocean
forgive sobbing and sulking ..there's always a way to feel safe
Track Name: The Dream Pool
You don't know the words but they know you
You don't make the sound it speaks through you

You don't need to touch it to know it's real

I learned from you I learned from you there is grace in how we move through the truth to the dream pool


The Dream Pool

sleep sleep sleep
I’ve got you I’ve got you through the window
you're ok see just dream just dream

You don't know the words but they know you
You don't make the sound it speaks through you

You don't need to touch to make me feel you in the dream pool
Track Name: Uranium
Never Slow Down Enough to Hear
Never Give Up My Fear
Track Name: Blurry Head
Get out of my head this voice this ghost this silhouette
taunting and doubting poking and prodding
trying to connect what makes no sense
or perfect sense

well it’s getting all blurry
if i could just catch it out of the corner of my eye

another layer another layer of my mind seeping out in song
oh music music to my ears sometimes my own voice is almost clear


it's getting all blurry
if i could just catch it out of the corner of my eye

it’s the crazy thoughts and feeling lost and feeling hot
and drive all around to get lost and find a new way home

the great adventure the great adventure after all
I get so scared it really means nothing at all

it’s getting all blurry
if i look directly at this love will my eyes burn
oh it burns oh it always will burn
Track Name: Smoke Screens
The future is the truth no keeping it from you no keeping it from you
The future is the proof no keeping it from you no keeping it from you
Smoke screens just out of reach from your hand
I fall behind you look back military crowding in

There are no more Buildings. No more Walls Only Dust swelling
Create veils Thick Enough to Distance us
Smoke Screens Just out of Reach from your Hand
I Fall Behind you Look Back, Military crowding in

The roads a memory of the path.
The past is forward now
There’s nothing to hold on to after everything we've said
it's just an old excuse...cause we always knew
we always knew we always knew -
The future was the proof 

After the Dirt Settles
We Let go of all that Held ours
We Return with something Bigger than Ourselves

We are the Keepers of the Spark
its Running all Through us all
We don’t Need the Proof We are More than Truth 
After Everything we've said, it's just a Damn Excuse
We always Knew
There is no Absolute …A Memory we Let Go

There are Keepers of the Spark
We Keep it in the Dark
We Keep it Safe & Sound
We Keep it and Now after Everything we've said
it’s just an old Excuse because we always knew
after everything we’ve said…..

Smoke screens Keeping us apart keeping me from You
You're just out of Reach . Smoke Screen.
The future is the truth, no Keeping it from you, No Keeping it from you…

We Are the Keepers of the Spark
It’s Running through us all
We don’t need the Proof. We are More than Truth
After Everything we’ve said It’s just a damn excuse
We always knew the Future was the Proof
Track Name: A Light in the Distance
There's a light in the distance 
it seems to be inside
you can hold it in your mind
just in the distance
it seems to be just outside your body
keeping you in line

It's not where your going it's your zenith always knowing
It's time to go outside

Sing to the moon 
Sing to the sky
Sing to the stars 
Let them know you’re alive
why you survive
Why you cry 

There's a light in the distance 
you can hold it inside your mind
Seems to be just outside
in the distance

In the distance it’s not where you’re going it’s your zenith always knowing it’s time to go outside
Sing to the moon 
Sing to the sky
Sing to the stars 
Let them know you’re alive
Sing to the night Sing to the sky let them know why you cry let them know you survive let them know why you cry let them know why you oh

There's a light in the distance 
you can hold it inside your mind
