01. True Hallucination Speak

Music by Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Sean Malone
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
Bits, a handful of irregular bits
A colored glass colors the light
Warms up my spine
Stars, flat six-pointed stars
Hexagon like baby blocks
I've sewn a cloth

True hallucination speak

Inhale, exhale
You better get a friend to help you
Against the stream
You've got to make amends with the truth

Glide, a living language collides
Chrysanthemum like mandala
Gave birth two eyes

True hallucination speak

Inhale, exhale
You better get a friend to help you
Against the stream
You've got to make amends with the truth

Pop, pop snap crackle and pop
Science fiction memory
Interleaved
Illuminates the heart
And I won't let you down
I might come from outer space
But I'm here with you now
And we'll travel between worlds

The shimmer
Of that sound
In the mouth
Love's design
Accomplished


02. The Lion's Roar

Music by Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Sean Malone
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
Bury the bells
Between two mountains
The big trees on the other side
With illuminated leaves shout
I can say nothing
You've been uprooted
It's time to take another road

I will
Kiss the mouth of reality's face
I will
Annihilate my hiding place
I will
Fade into the rising smoke
I hear the lion's roar

Animals are something invented by plants
To move seeds around
An extremely yang solution
To a peculiar problem
Which they faced
Now I must take their medicine

I will
Sharpen the stone on the angel's tongue
And wield
A blow to unreality's front
Illusions
Flow out from this mortal wound
As I wake to the sound of the lion's roar

And from your throat
You sing to me your secrets
A proclamation
That everything, everything is workable
No resistance
A pathway to the heart
In you I know
How I am born
I hear the lion's roar


03. Kindly Bent To Free Us

Music by Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Sean Malone
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
Kindly bent to free us
A heart-to-heart farewell
My armor begins to rust
It forms the scrapyard gates to Hell

DNA trapped in ice
Absorbed into a fossil site
My cheek cells traced
To an ancient human figure
Hobbit-sized

Kindly bent to free us
The joy, the sorrow and the pain
Life returns to mother dust
Aboard we sail to sink one day

Beyond mere blood lineage
Or a self-transcending simian
I rise to taste the dawn
And find that love will shine on

Evolution
Beyond rationality
The one solution
To turn my head and imitate the sun

The one who's always been
Has seen much worse than this projection
Persecution, kindly bent to free


04. Infinite Shapes

Music by Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Sean Malone
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
The indivisible goose egg
An irreplaceable loose peg
It never satisfies, incomplete
The future won't arrive
Nothing to seek
Don't you worry now

Infinite shapes
Architectures opaque
Infinite shapes
Paper tigers at play

A kamikaze seed
Breaks ground
Sprouts up inside of me
Spreading down
It poked into my eye
Cracked the egg
Now there's a tentacle
Growing limb-like eggs

Infinite shapes
Alpha beta erased
Infinite shapes
Vital connections engaged

Sit down
Behold the open crown
Through the eternal halls
An Earth amidst the balls
One spark
Shooting across the dark
Fear, craft and avarice
Become a dust-filled wish

The indivisible goose egg
An irreplaceable loose peg
I won't worry now


05. Moon Heart Sun Head

Music by Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Sean Malone
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
I let the moon in my heart
To ventilate
An embryonic wisdom
Where I get to awake
A living flame
I turn the key
Open the door
The atmosphere enters my home
Cause the moon's inside my heart

I hold the sun in my head
To self-contain
A cocoon melts inside me
Protection's just a weight
I can be brave
In gentle ways
Step out into the open space
Eye-level truth
When I hold the sun in my head

They're one in the same
Moon heart sun head

I'm black and blue
And smile at fear
I'm broke and bruised
And smile at fear
They're one in the same

Moon heart sun head


06. Gitanjali

Music by Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Sean Malone
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
The lightning splits the ice
Thunder twice
Swallowed by rain
When black floods
Slit the hills
A turnpike filled
I am a weed by the wall

Gitanjali, keep swimming

The aching void in me
Sings softly
I fear no one
A cold hand at my door
The sinking floor
I am a soul on the run

Gitanjali, keep swimming

Goodbye to all of you
It's useless to refuse the muse
Let's carry on for future generations gone

Gitanjali, keep swimming

Goodbye to all of you
It's useless to refuse the muse
Let's tie one on to future generations gone

And between living and dying
There's a third thing, yes
The victorious has left the room

Gitanjali, keep swimming


07. Holy Fallout

Music by Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Sean Malone
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
A star at dawn
A bubble in a stream
A flash of lightning in
A summer cloud
A flickering lamp
A phantom and a dream

Aspirations
Chained to grindstones at your feet
Contradictions
Behold what you're afraid to see
Dear world
I can't offer an explanation
There's no one here but love

No conflict
No mind tricks
Mother Earth guide my ship
Comfort me
Despite me
Oh mercy, radiate your grace on me

Out of the ground
Where I hide my tangled head
To the North Star
And the alchemy is met
Dear world
I can't offer a reservation
There's no one here but love

Laugh and spit
Into the air
Laugh and spit
There could be
There should be
There will be holy fallout

No conflicts
No mind tricks
Comfort me
Remind me


08. Endlessly Bountiful

Music by Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Sean Malone
Lyrics by Paul Masvidal
You're endless, endlessly bountiful
Truth does not change
