Track Name: Mathematics
Mathematics

It’s all mathematics
Practicing bad habits
Poorly made decisions
Buried alive deep in the ground
Swept underneath and tightly bound Volatile if found
History repeating
Fractals repeat effortlessly
Stick the spade in gently
Pull up the weeds
Make room for more seeds.

Formulaic movement
Calculate the method
Maybe different this time
Early to bed, early to rise
Early to work, early demise

You want to teach /by example
But you’ve never /had control
You know this leads /to misery
Lying won’t make /it go away

In a state of /convalescing wellness
Hoping truth won’t take its toll

Changing your ways for ways you’ll keep

Help yourself before you the truth finds you
Tell the truth tell the truth to you
Its all mathematics (This is no way to live)
Practicing bad habits (We need to alter this formula)
Quantify the outcomes
Sometimes lose it all
Sometimes you won’t fall
Track Name: Mood Elevator
Mood Elevator

I’m stepping into my mood elevator
Just press the button Just press the button
I’m lounging around in my mood elevator
Going up going down feeling something feeling nothin

Others get aboard my mood elevator
They can make it rise and they can make it fall
And one has a dog that will pee in the corner
It’s not allowed on this lift anymore

No crowds allowed on my mood elevator
My mood will come down if it gets too heavy

When my mood gets stuck between floors
I don’t know where I am anymore
Gotta press the red button and then wait for someone
To pry me out of my broken mood elevator

When I get out I leave my mood elevator
I exit the building and go to the park
I watch the children run and sing
Then I get on my big mood swing
Track Name: One Eyed Man
One Eyed Man

Many many years ago
there was a one eyed man
He sat upon a golden throne
And ruled a sightless land

His crowning lacked sagacity
He wasn’t aristocracy
They crowned him just cause he could see
He was a one eyed man

He was a careless guy
He had no depth of field
He guarded his one eye
With all that he could wield

He made a lot of silly rules
And rode upon a pack of mules
While showing off his family jewels
And no one knew at all

One day his kingdom was attacked
By monsters in the night
They honed in on his lonely eye
And robbed him of his sight

He ran into the streets and cried
“come everyone with me and hide!”
He led them off a cliff and died
Farewell to the one eyed man
Track Name: Mirror Eyes
Mirror Eyes

Mirror Eyes
Full of sky
See the highway
Which I ride

Mirror Eyes
Take a ride
In your mind
The road is wide

Experience the liquid wall
Watch it all cascade and fall
There’s nothing there
There’s nothing there
Nothing underneath it all

Turn inward and breathe
Cells asleep and they will dream
Spin into the present for a while

Jump up high a leap of faith
Close your eyes and meditate
Your third eye opens doors you never knew

Tapestry
Make believe
Focus on
The golden weave

Mirror eyes
No disguise
Can’t look away
From those mirror eyes

Multiply the shape and size
Fractals spiral in your eyes
There’s nothing there
There’s nothing there
There’s nothing up above the clouds
