Already Free

Something simple in me
woke up already free
A thousand stories removed
living proof I’ve nothing to prove

Yeah,
But I needed a push to get me to see
wherever I am, I’m already free

Hearts and minds collide
Twist together opening wide
My head is beneath my feet are above
tangled up in the comedy of

Yeah,
But I needed a push to get me to see
wherever I am, I’m already free

I dug a tunnel when I needed a lift
Such a fool just afraid of a gift
Something subtle when it started to shift
now i’m soaring over cliffs

And I needed a push to get me to see
wherever I am, I’m already free
And I needed a push to get me to see
wherever I am, I’m already free

The River

everyone i’ve ever loved
met in the river
and was afraid of
getting in the river
now i’m falling
and i

feel a million arms around me
when i get in the river
every color of light surrounds me
when i get in the river
every thought i have dissolves
here in the river
i’m gonna let love wash it all
here in the river

get in the river

i’ve seen strange sages
get in the river
leading demons
into the river
now they lead me
and i

feel a million arms around me
when i get in the river
every color of light surrounds me
when i get in the river
every thought i have dissolves
here in the river
i’m gonna let love wash it all
here in the river

get in the river

i’m in the river
get in the river
we’re in the river

Deity Freak

somebody buy me a drink
and get this ritual on
let the deity freak
prove the peity wrong
I’m too clumsy to dance
too ecstatic to care
if I’m losing my mind
because it went everywhere
deep space is ready to sneeze
what we believe
is bouncing off the altar

party like a pop star make a lot of love
detonate the deity keep it feeling freaky
party like a pop star make a lot of love
detonate the deity keep it feeling freaky
deity is freaky
keep it feeling freaky
deity is freaky

keep it feeling freaky

I wanna bury my face
in the nape of your neck
I’m leaving something behind
another ‘the whimsical wreck’
I feel like I could faint
you keep kissing the scars
and connecting the dots
between billions of stars
and darkness, speaking in tongues
using our lungs, spill the secret teaching

party like a pop star make a lot of love
detonate the deity keep it feeling freaky
party like a pop star make a lot of love
detonate the deity keep it feeling freaky
deity is freaky
keep it feeling freaky
deity is freaky
keep it feeling freaky

looking in the mirror
staring at the stranger
staring at the stranger
looking in the mirror
maybe its a message

get out of the way
get out of the way
get out of the way
you get out of the way
wake up as the way
wake up as the way
you wake up as the way

party like a pop star make a lot of love
detonate the deity keep it feeling freaky
party like a pop star make a lot of love
detonate the deity keep it feeling freaky
deity is freaky
keep it feeling freaky
deity is freaky
keep it feeling freaky
deity is freaky
keep it feeling freaky
deity is freaky
keep it feeling freaky

Wand

I’ve been building a volcano
In the basement of my navel
Stuck a straw into the sun
Sucked some light into my lungs
Love made a wick out of my tongue

Hate
Hate is a puzzle
One look and I saw double
Fear
Fear is a riddle
That made my bones brittle
Love
Love is a wand
One wave, the riddle’s gone

There’s a field of flowers pushing
Through the tissue in the torso
Love dropped that seed into my wound
Step up, my chest is gonna bloom
You should get a whiff of this perfume

(Refrain)

Twisted Mystery

with a bruise in the shape of my personality
a scar from the barbs in the jagged fallacy
a crude little letch trapped inside of me

are you gonna roll your eyes at me?
I guess that’s what stings
you know I came to help
myself to everything

do you wanna take a shot at me?
well, you’ll have to hit yourself
cuz I’m hiding in your head
and I’m having fun in hell

you could make a chain around the world
if you gathered up the girls

a bruise in the shape of my personality
a scar from the barbs in the jagged fallacy
there’s a crude little letch trapped inside of me
and it’s a twisted mystery

a forced apology
married to a melody
makes “sorry” sound so sweet
and easy to repeat

I’m sorry, can’t you tell?
no neither can I
or anybody else
and it makes me wanna cry

maybe I would if i knew how
but I’m busy drinking now

a bruise in the shape of my personality
a scar from the barbs in the jagged fallacy
a crude little letch trapped inside of me
it’s a twisted mystery

a bruise in the shape of my personality
a scar from the barbs in the jagged fallacy
there’s a crude little letch trapped inside of me
it’s a twisted mystery

I’m so I’m so I’m so sorry

I’m so I’m so I’m so sorry

you could make a chain around the world
if you gathered up the girls

a bruise in the shape of my personality
a scar from the barbs in the jagged fallacy
there’s a crude little letch trapped inside of me
and it’s a twisted mystery

a twisted twisted mystery

Fear of Light

Trapped inside a theater
of faces I defend
I say they’re only stories
but I am what I pretend
to be

You show me a lover
who has wandered
toward the flash
I’ll show you a layer
in the sediment
of ash

All I want to do
is melt back into you
still I fight
fear of light

It’s easier
to focus on a figment
in the sky
than look
into the secret
in someone else’s eyes
and I know why

This fevered dream
this suffocating night
keeps my heart asleep
in fear of light

All I want to do
is melt back into you
still i fight
fear of light

Nothing In Between

There is nothing in between us when we sleep
Every night the bliss begins to leak
Nothing in between us when we laugh
it’s something that our head will never grasp
It’s seen in between

There’s nothing in between your joy and mine
It’s all a lot of nectar on the vine
Joy is how my parents were entwined
and there’s nothing in between their lives and mine
We’ve seen

There’s nowhere to hide in the open Reality
Love is so wide, there isn’t a boundary
There is only one eye without any enemy
when you’ve seen in between

There’s nothing in between our skin and light
Nothing in between the wind and kite
Nothing in between our lips and grace
Nothing in between the tongue and taste
It’s seen

(Refrain)

There is nothing in between you and I
Nothing in between blue and sky
Nothing in between us and love
Nothing in between wings and doves

(Refrain)

There is nothing
in between

Sugar Bullets

all i ever wanted was
to get laid in a haunted house
all i ever wanted was
to punch out mickey mouse
all i ever wanted was
breath mints and cigarettes
all i ever wanted was
one blonde and one brunette, so

pull that pistol, tease that trigger
make that missile blow up bigger
sugar bullets
shoot off my
sugar bullets
shoot off, shoot off

all i ever wanted was
buddha without buddhism
all i ever wanted was
jesus christ without the christians
all i ever wanted was
peace and love without the pot smoke
all i ever wanted was
porno flicks without the plot, so

pull that pistol, tease that trigger
make that missile blow up bigger
sugar bullets,
shoot of my
sugar bullets
shoot off, shoot off

baby
sweet stigmatas stain the mattress
aren’t we
skin pinatas stuffed with plasma?
aren’t we
kundalini meets karate
knock me out of my own body

(chorus)

Sky God

Sky God
This one’s real
my God
is revealed
when I bend and kneel
I can’t tell you how good that feels
No more asking questions
I better count my blessings
If I’ve learned one lesson
Why ask Why?
Give it to the Sky God

My head feels fuzzy
and it’s all because He’s
doing what He doesn’t
’till it’s what it wasn’t

(Refrain)

You better take a look now
at the one true book now
Read it, open hearted
Till the clouds are parted

(Refrain)

All the drugs I used to do
Alll the sex I used to have
were only shadows on my path
Now my heart has been redeemed
and my spirit is remade
and the world will feel His
righteous wrath and anger
Cuz the end is near
the end is here

Sky God
(Refrain)

Universe Communion

There was a star that was hidden in space – an undiscovered gem
until it’s denizens decided they had chosen
the Dagon to give the gift to them
So with the shocking revelations,
of a primitive people, our knowledge was redefined
Enlightened and wise, the simple African tribe
has educated the modern minds

Our potential was choked under the scientific yoke
Afraid that if we open our eyes, we’ll have to realize

If the message from a distant sun can reach us
There is a magic that is waiting and is willing to teach us
how to suture every soul into one concentric whole
Earth can find the perfect union
in the universe communion

In this area of Western thought, the spirit is in a vise
we are driven to seek in a futile pursuit
with a means that won’t suffice

It is a science with a limited scope
where the heart and head collide
resigned to the laws of only tangible proof
to which the truth does not abide

We stifle and smother the mystic wonder
Is our arrogance a deafening fear of what we’ll have to hear?

Chorus

We have a tendency think that it’s our practical senses
that get these questions solved
but those are tenuous tools and the more we employ them, the slower
we evolve

Denied by suppression the deeper lessons

Miracle

that night your comet fell
into our wishing well
it made your mother laugh
it cut your dad in half

my love we knew your name
a year before you came
even then you pulled us close
and scattered all the ghosts

ache of a hundred funerals
in the miracle
ache of a hundred funerals
in the miracle

we’ve studied scripture since
some secret left its hints
etched in your finger prints
with a love your life evinces

what moves between the sand
that falls between the hands
hides in the open sky,
looks out behind your eyes

ache of a hundred funerals
in the miracle
ache of a hundred funerals
in the miracle

your mother and i kissed
it ripped a hole in space
you tunneled to her womb
at the point of every place

in love your life begins
in the midst of a million twins
and death is just a door
to the love of a million more

ache of a hundred miracles
ache of a hundred miracles

[audio:http://www.dreamusher.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/sounds/something simple/miracle.mp3]

White Plum

in the pulsing
of a blue stream
till the ache lead
to a red pool
where the vein broke
and a lie bled
love

now your lips pursed
in the orchard
under moonlight
with an arm stretched
for a branch
with a ripe, white
plum
