LYRICS AND DOWNLOAD ON BANDCAMP
To give you an idea of the lyrical content, it all begins with a regal invocation and proclamation that starts the album off in "Internity":
Give us language to express
the timing of the endlessness
Give us language to impress
our forms upon the emptiness
As interns of eternity
in turn we shall eternal be
In Track 2, "Plant Teacher", a disciple attains awareness of his own mortality through an encounter with a fly, while sitting at his teacher's lotus feet. Distracted by scents of humor and the spectacle of the spiritual, he denounces his guru and begins his own journey.
Another example is track 3, "Buried in the Sand"--a manic parable about overcoming the maniacal ego, our inner pharaoh, and opening up to our current channels to familiarize ourselves with their unique language and the message we impart to-ourselves-through-ourselves.
