DSV Owl 04:00
There's only one thing you need to know When you are lovin' me I have no threshold for fuckery It's not that I don't care but That I care too much to Let you try to change me If you don't like you can leave 'cause it only takes one To fly this starship Well you can do what you want and You can do who you want just Don't bring me back home any poisons We can lean on each but Still stand on our own feet I don't listen to our culture I don't listen to my genes 'cause I decide Where I fly this starship Through the vortex of time and space she Makes every single ordinary place seem mystical She was forged in the heart of a start She's shown me that near and far are identical So babe I'll take you for a ride It won't be long unless you're one of my kind A traveler through dark and light To plumb the depths of the mind There's a spot for you Aboard this starship

Dukkha 05:03
The light is a crack in the sky The hope that we live 'fore we die Maybe someday we'll find our way The truth can be glimpsed in the eyes To see beneath the petulant lies And everyone is a mirror We toil on toward the break of dawn And find no rest through the day The things we push just always push back The things we pull, pull away Pull away, pull away, Pull away, pull away We climb with a bag filled with stones Still frightened of the unknown We don't even know who we are The clouds form a spectral floor It feels like I've been here before I keep on fallin' again and again We toil on toward the break of dawn And find no rest through the day The things we push just always push back The things we pull, pull away Pull away, pull away Pull away, pull away Find our way, find our way Find our way, find our way

Pirates 03:32
Can't you see them walking all down Wall Street With their pearly smiles? They don't really give a damn whether you eat It's just not their style Just so long as money is their mistress And she keeps putting out every time that they want it You bear witness to the pirates Of the glutton age They take it before you even get it You don't know that it's gone They'd rather break it than to see that you have it They couldn't carry on Just so long as they're safe in their houses And they have someone there to do their dirty dishes You bear witness to the pirates Of the glutton age They don't care if you're dying in the ditches Just so as they don't really have to see it You bear witness to the pirates Of the glutton age Can't you seem them walking all down Wall Street With their pearly smiles? They don't really give a damn whether you eat It's just not their style It's not their style It's not their style

Aquamarine 03:14
You've been swimming through the clouds They've been watching from the ground I've been thinking that I might drown We've been sinking and flailing around in Aquamarine is all I see Caught in a dream Aquamarine We've been falling into the blue I've been calling out to you They've been hiding from the truth You've been reaching for the moon
7.
Move to the rhythm of the modern age Trying to turn back to an earlier of phrase In the middle of the ocean there's a nation of waste Casted off plastics of the human race We can't erase what's been done Can only replace one with one Cancerous fingers point toward the sky With deranged beauty they strangle our time Carving through nature just to survive There are more ways that we can get by We can't erase what's been done Can only replace one with one We can't erase what's been done Can only replace one with one

Form is no other than emptiness Emptiness no other than form Form is precisely emptiness Emptiness precisely form The tree you see is made up of atoms Just a wave rippling in the sea The song you hear you're making with your mind Vibrating particles all in one One in all
9.
I'm fleeting thoughts Fleeting thoughts, grasping ash I'm sensation Perception, consciousness Gone, gone beyond Far beyond all around Peel away reality Tell me what you see Dissolving into the Never Becoming what I always was The majestic, majestic Never Arriving where I always was Even now, silence in sound The atoms that compose me came from a star It knew not of time, near or far The things that I feel, the things that I think Are vibrating electricity I'm not my name, my views or form Not bound by culture or stifling norms There is only awareness itself The wave is the sea, the mind an empty shelf Dissolving into the Never Becoming what I always was The majestic, majestic Never Arriving where I always was Even now, silence in sound Emptiness

Their twisted fingers run through your head They try to tell you how you should live We've been made into molding clay They tell us what to do think and say Don't ya' know that we're just meat machines Designed to keep the wheels turning and the gears clean We have no real value other than to consume To grab all we can before we wind up in our tombs yeah! It seems we've lost the will to fight Given up control of our minds The radio and TV screens Tell you what you think you should need Don't ya' know that we're just meat machines Designed to keep the wheels turning and the gears clean We have no real value other than to consume To grab all we can before we wind up on our tombs yeah! They bring you down So you can pay them To pick you up

The road untraveled is the one to walk Through hidden mountains and honey-stalk Let it unravel, the chain and the lock Unbidden and uncounted hollow clock Some choke on regret in their latter days Alive without living, a sorry state When the rope's 'round our necks We step from the haze Regretting regrets, but it's too late With a deathbed philosophy the better you'll fair With a deathbed philosophy the better you'll... On the pathless path through the gateless gate The weeds are regarded like swaying jades In bridal meadows beyond chance and fate Each has been parted, yet one remains Live each day like it's the first and the last Give without thinking of what's given back Smile more often when you're alone Dwell in the moment you are home With a deathbed philosophy the better you'll fair With a deathbed philosophy the better you'll... fair

You say you know what God is and what comes after Then you must know how to catch the wind and tie it to the water You say that you know the truth 'cause you read it in a book Can you say that the grass is green without having a look? Well, oh well. Well, what does it matter? Well, oh well. Well, what does it matter? You ask what the purpose is and does your life have meaning If you could answer this would it change a thing? 'cause you will still be sitting there dying in your chair You give meaning to your life and all your cares Well, oh well. Well, what does it matter? Well, oh well. Well, what does it matter? You ask where do I go where do I run? Just sit there it's all already done Where do I go where do I run? Just sit there it's all already done You say you know what God is and what comes after Than you must know how to catch the wind and tie it to the water You say that you know the truth of what is and what isn't You shit out assumptions and feed 'em to your children Well, oh well. Well, what does it matter? Well, oh well. Well, what does it matter?

Solace 03:57
Sweet lady silence she sings to me With an ancient tender melody When at rest all's in harmony The silent witness to breathe be In a warm room laughing with close friends The silence sometimes settles in A subtle tap, a gentle wind Before the voices rise up again With every step she's my companion Solitude without beginning or end Through city streets and curving canyons She never breaks, only bends Enchanting unknown I sit with you With knees bent on gleaming dew She will always see me through Whispering words I never knew
