**STRANGE BIRDS**

Strange birds, all..
Those wings won’t bring you glory ~
As none can relate
to a character not in their story
When you live between the lines,
the signs that guide do blur..
and build those strange obsessions
in the hearts of those it lures

Strange birds stick apart
Dancing in the dark
is the avenue

Teleprompter faces,
the faceless multiply
In drag, but not so holy-
this game they deify
Blinded by the shimmer
of social auctioneers
They’re for whom the bell tolls;
strange birds don’t adhere..

Strange birds stick apart
Dancing in the dark
is the avenue..
in the avenue

Strange Birds..

**ABERRATION**

They tell you it’s a lie
to fill your world so full with pleasure
to make you deny
that it’s all right to live your life in leisure
Take it in stride ~
It took a while to get woman from the kitchen
The truth can’t hide
that freedom is it’s own ambition

Grow your hair ~ and paint your walls
Free your head ~ and bounce your balls
Not to be a freak.. but you may find your chic
as an aberration..

Cuz the first to say that- the world was flat
was an aberration
and the first to fly- they all just sighed
“He’s an aberration”
Then the first to the moon- they called him soon an aberration
So now maybe you- should have them call you too an aberration

So they tell you to change
to live up to their expectations
Tell you you’re insane
You’ll ignore their warnings with sweet elations
That’s all right ~
You don’t have to borrow from their limitations
A bird in flight
never asked a soul for congratulations

Grow your hair ~ and paint your walls
Free your head ~ and bounce your balls
Not to be a freak.. but you may find your chic
as an aberration..

Cuz the first to say that- the world was flat
was an aberration
and the first to fly- they all just sighed
“He’s an aberration”
Then the first to the moon- they called him soon an aberration
So now maybe you- should have them call you too an aberration

You have my admiration ..congratulations..
you become an aberration ..you’re an aberration

**EVERMORE**

Love is evermore
Evermore until the day it walks out the door
Love is the atmosphere
An atmosphere evaporates, bone-dry from tears..
and love is the magic key
but you turn it ~ and all the magic might crash reality
Beware.. of love.

Love is eternity
Eternity until you walked away from me
Love, such a strange delight;
the endless flight – that vanishes in pure day light…
and love is the stratosphere
A height so grand, it thrills you..
til it could kill you, dear
Beware.. of love.

Laid bare.. evermore.. by love.

**THE MONEY SONG**

Why medical solutions have been silenced as hazardous
Why we destroy the lungs of Planet Earth~ rainforest

Money is of what money talks
Why textbooks misinform
Why cars still run on oil

Money is of what money talks
and la-dee-dah…
(code for: “& other such fucked up shit”)

Why we learn things that feel like a distraction
Why we live in a constant state of deception

Money is of what money talks
Why things are built to break
Why the media reality is fake

Money is of what money talks
and la-dee-dah…
(money song..money song..money money)

Why weed that’s curing cancer
can’t get past the legislature
Why more watch the Superbowl
than a year’s worth of PBS Nature

Money is of what money talks
Why energy is..
Still not free is..
Money ..
is of what money talks
and la-dee-dah…

**MAGIC OMENS**

Day to night falls like a blanket
across your mind
Still a light on ~ past the place
where eyes have gone blind..

Magic Omens ~
keep me true
Magic Omens ~
opens up to the day,
the colors show through..

Enter through doorways,
made once of walls
Know that you’re always
in reach.. when the magic calls..

Magic Omens ~
keep me true
Magic Omens ~
opens up to the day,
the colors show through..

Signals of a language
the world responds from inner-terrain
Something of a strange witch
encoded in the details of your brain…

Magic Omens ~
the colors show through..

**WALKING ON WATER**

Fluctuation abides
yet we keep from falling
In the world of the mind,
nothing is solid
Find a balance inside,
and simply call it logic

Walking on water is easy
Walking on water is easy

We put thoughts in motion
You’re the waves in your ocean
Follow yourself to your home

Walking on water is easy
Walking on water is easy..

Just make a sound
and those waves start rolling
Thoughts are unbound,
the world is decoding
Put your feet on the ground;
you can know the whole thing..

Walking on water is easy
Walking on water is easy…

do do do do dooooo

Follow yourself to your home
Walking on water is easy..
walking on water..

**PHOENIX LIGHTS**

It was the last days of winter and..
the lights came from over the mountain
Ten thousand people.. saw them..
Most remembered every detail –
but some experienced missing time
that was only revealed
by the photos they had taken…

Phoenix lights…

The lights came over the mountain
And there was nothing at all to fear..
Yes the lights were there over the mountain
..and they’re still here…

It was a soothing amber, the orbs..
hovering motionlessly
Stood there in silence ~
but there for thousands to see..
for 106 minutes –
a ship a full mile long…
This, the mayor and the senator agree.

The lights came over the mountain
And there was nothing at all to fear
Yes the lights were there over the mountain
And they are here..
Nothing to fear.

All one night in Phoenix…
All one night in Phoenix
There were many lights..
over the city……

**PROFIT PERVERTS**

I hear there’s another war in store
Deceptions of a matador
for cultural domination
under the guise of salvation
They say you like it like this
but it’s just a drowning kiss

And it’s all to make some sick man’s dreams come true
It’s all to make a sick man’s dreams come true
What do profit perverts..
have up their sleeve for you
What do profit perverts..
have up their sleeve for you

It’s all to make some sick man’s dreams come true
and the profit perverts.. they’re comin’ after you!

Got no intention to sustain
Crumblin’ cities, open veins..
Just more manipulation
from perverse foundations
so these powers can grow
It’s just a caveman show

And it’s all to make some sick man’s dreams come true
It’s all to make a sick man’s dreams come true
What do profit perverts..
have up their sleeve for you
What do profit perverts..
have up their sleeve for you

It’s all to make some sick man’s dreams come true
and the profit perverts.. they’re comin’ after you!

So we allow this to continue
Clown faces growin’ in you
of consumer identity;
makes us shallow and greedy
And we learn not to know.
Become a part of the show.

And it’s all to make some sick man’s dreams come true
It’s all to make a sick man’s dreams come true
What do profit perverts..
have up their sleeve for you
What do profit perverts..
have up their sleeve for you

It’s all to make some sick man’s dreams come true
and the profit perverts.. they’re comin’ after you!

chorale:
“It’s an honor / to be a species /
on this planet / but then what he sees /
oh they rape it / what gave them birth.. /
Rape the mother / for all it’s worth /
PROFIT perverts / Profit PERVERTS
PROFIT perverts / Profit PERVERTS”

**MIRRORS**

People pick up a cellphone
like they used to reach for a cigarette
to transfer social anxiety
and personal tension.. onto on object..

Staring at mirrors
and theres nobody there
Everyone’s staring at mirrors;
the picture’s all too clear

Feel the screen..of the Mirror Machine..
Feel the screen..of the Mirror Machine..
calling…..

O baby baby baby baby o touch me..
O baby baby baby baby o touch me..
O baby baby baby baby o touch me..

Take a check inside
to feel for this rising ship
You can take a cool ride..
through my warm lips..

O baby baby baby baby o touch me..

People pick up a cellphone
like they used to reach for a cigarette
to transfer social anxiety
and personal tension.. onto on object..

Feel the screen.. of the Mirror Machine..

O baby baby baby baby o touch me..

**SANCTIFIED**

In the wilderness
of your consciousness
is the river
to lead you down
the path to what you’ll be

Though you walk alone ~
you come to own your soul
and you dance to your own voice..
for you know you are free

Sanctified
the soul of the universe unites
I call upon the wind and the rain
to embrace my source of pain
and leave me sanctified..

The dark and the light
are just visions in your mind;
roots of power
where you plant them..
and growing like a seed

Embodied with fright
is the everlasting night ~
asks only wisdom
to light the pathway..
so your mind learns to see

Sanctified
the soul of the universe unites
I call upon the wind and the rain
to embrace my source of pain
and leave me sanctified..

You don’t know it – but
we’re one with the forces that we fight
so take your poor shadows..
and hold them to the light
The battle is on the inside..

In the wilderness of your consciousness
is the simple surrender –
to transcendental harmony

And pierced by the light ..
like a bird just taking flight
song of freedom..
as he wanders.. to the sea..

Sanctified
the soul of the universe unites
I call upon the wind and the rain
to embrace my source of pain
It leaves me sanctified..
It leaves me sanctified..
Leaves me high..
Sanctified
