about

The emotional process of our creative ambitions. Onset - Infatuation & Excitement - Confusion - Doubt - Depression - Chaos - Restoration - Understanding - Acceptance. It's a ride of feelings! Musical elements include Acoustic, Rock, Progressive, World, & Psychedelic.

Taken from my stream of consciousness notes while creating the album:

It's about the emotional process of an ambitious undertaking. The high of the creative onset, the love/honeymoon/infatuation period, the panic of realizing it's not all fantastical, the confusion of realizing this, reality setting in, losing patience and feeling like the walls are closing in and people are laughing at you, feeling lost and depressed, fiending for a way out and ravenously seeking yourself, your truth, overthinking who you really are. At the peak of losing your mind in this frenzy, you crash and you find yourself on the calm shore, thoughts pass by as your soul, body, and mind meditate with the ocean breeze. You eventually realize that you must embrace every part of the journey, even the downs. Don't create friction within yourself. The highs and lows are a constant. Know this, and be wherever the journey takes you totally. Upon your realization, you develop the emotional intelligence to continue. True love on a mental plane. You have found a way to perceive this "mirage" of pursuing your dreams. With newfound strength and enlightened spirit, you float on the balanced waves through the rest of your journey, embracing every which way. Onwards

Track Name: Levitate
Thoughts alone. Overflowed
Resting still. Ever higher
Meditate. Levitate.
Thoughts alone.
Someone’s up and gone away

Carved in stone. Vision road.
Mesa ascends. Towering over.
Escalate. Concentrate


Meditate
Levitate

Elevate
Replicate
Carve your own
Manifesto
Culminate
Meditate
Drift away
Levitate
Track Name: Speak To Me, Dear
You’re the one
You’re the one that speaks to me, dear
Speaks to me, dear
In the light desert sand
And we dance
With our hearts aligned in the dunes
Track Name: Sundrug
Overload
Track Name: Cadabra Pearls
I’m not so sure
These pearls of wisdom
Are they to draw me in,
And push me down?

And push me down


A thousand years
In my amulet
The hope is real
But will it heal,
Or push me down?

A-B-R-A


They see mirage
I see me

They see mirage
I see me

I see mirage
They see me

I see mirage
They see me

They see me
They see me
They see me
They see me
Track Name: Champagne Dizza
Champagne Dizza

I’ll tell you why
I’m not sure anymore
A compromise
Has been set in stone
I wonder why
From the heart and the bone
Could we still work?

It pains me stay
Home again
Got to be dizzy to stay

I’ll tell you why
I’m not sure anymore
I’m criticized
But I just know I quality
-then it slips my mind
Could we still work?

It aches me to stay
Home again
Got to be dizzy



I wonder why
I’m not sure anymore
A compromise
Has been set in stone
I’m mystified
To heart and the bone
…it won’t work

Could we still work?
We still work…
Track Name: Down
Out of sight
It’s gone

Down
The trails of tomorrow
Never to be seen
An illusion it’s all been to me
This time around it feels more real
There’s more on the line
I’m older
And it matters more
People depend on me
My actions
It’s not worth the fight
Track Name: I, The Lurker
You can run
I will seek you out
In the maze I know
The old familiar ways
I, the lurker show

When you crawled away
Something slowly crept
In the black I dwell
Burrowed down the hole
Where I, the lurker…


Underground
With wide eyes
Void of light
And cancerized

Underground
My eyes find
Lumens crying
A suicide
Track Name: Wavelength
And so we yield to enmity
Opposing waves of energy
Crashing ever rapidly
We see this happen all the time

And then I’ll see them move my way
As I fear they’ll roll away
What can I learn from this constant swaying?
It takes a death to look all around…


You won’t see
You won’t see
Until we’re swimming
You won’t see
You won’t see
Try moving still

Through me
Then you’ll see
Through the same breath
As the sea
As the sea’s
Spectrum of wavelengths


I no longer am afraid
It takes death to look all around…
Track Name: True Love On A Mental Plane
It’s sound to think you’re now bound
It’s sound to think you’re now bound
It’s out, spread out for you to know
It’s love, true love on a mental plane

We found a way to perceive the mirage
Parked right upon it
We found a way to see this through you

It’s sound to think you’re now bound
It’s sound to think you’re now bound
It’s out, spread out for you to know
It’s love, true love on a mental plane


It’s love, true love
It’s out, spread out
It’s bound in sounds
It’s love, true love on a mental plane
Track Name: Valhalla Wander
It’s unknown what’s been shown through the summer
Bluebirds to mark my youth
Now I feel what is real from beginnings
And told by Time it’s true


There are signs all around that you ponder
Do you think they tell the truth?
You and I baptized in the Isle
Valhalla makes what you think


Coming up ahead now
With all the phases here behind me
Gently swaying, motionless
To the gates

(To’ve made it this far
You’d have sacrificed your life
So wander through)


It’s unknown what’s been shown through the summer
Bluebirds to mark my youth
Now I feel what is real from beginnings
And told by Time it’s true

And told by Time it’s true
You and I baptized in the Isle
As one, to wander through
