Track Name: Substrate
One nation strong, assimilate
A house divided through love and hate
So many faces in a race for control
These visionaries, no dignity
Have you become all that you despised?
Your stream of consciousness compromised
Don’t push too hard; you’ll simply push
them away
The bias clouds your objectivity

One by one, all the lies we uncover
Sifting through the substrate
Always keep my focus on the edge of the
sky
Maintain the balance as I’m drifting by

Unearth the skeletons at your feet
And as we rise, the taste is bittersweet
The highest is bestowed unto you
All in this land of opportunity

One by one, all the lies we uncover
Buried in the substrate
Always keep my focus on the edge of the
sky
Maintain the balance as I’m drifting by
Track Name: Peripheral
Preying on my weaknesses
This immaculate disguise
Exhausting all my strength inside
Where and when the moment dies
Being someone, being no one
This dichotomy at play
I must forgive, but I remember
It’s just another perfect day

A multitude of influence
Who we choose to be
Heavy hangs the head that wears the crown
Sensory to overload
Wisdom we’ve imparted
The tree that falls yet never makes a sound

Scattered thought in shades of gray
A message to obey
Those who never seek shall never find
In the kingdom of the blind
This light we share
This cross we all must bear
Envisioning a brilliant new design
In the theater of the mind

So inspired, I’ve learned the meaning
A secret battle I have waged
This knowledge gained, my just reward
In this momentary stage
Once enslaved, emancipated
My peripheral at play
Though I forgive, I still remember
It’s just another perfect day

Forever with a watchful eye
To give and not receive
Weary is the man who wears the crown
I stare in all directions
My inner voice protecting me
It’s deafening, yet never makes a sound
Track Name: Peace Pipes and Holy Water
Rainmakers dancing for all the world
Sharing the weight of their totem pole
Tribal drummers speak to the night
-this is their plight
Their painted eyes held up to the sky

Peace pipes and holy water
Losing battle for control
Peace pipes and holy water
Empty conscience taking toll

Foreign ships set sail for new land
On a word and promise for every
woman, child and man
Force unbelievers to bended knee
-take our savior unto thee
This noble race is no longer free
Sharing the weight of a totem pole
The rainmakers dance, nevermore
