Track Name: Language Hive
Space, time, light
Caress dark void, filling world with life
Beings, sensations, movements
Sounds, tastes, colours and emotions
Hunger, joy, truthful devotion
Courage to love

Sometimes I go dancing in my head
Abandon life and worship language instead

Guilt, frustration, hate and despair
This meaningless burden I shall no longer bear
Through a deeper gaze I once saw
The bird flew out of the cave and beyond

The labyrinth of words echoes empty at the core
Seek redemption within fake walls no more

Beings, sensations
Movements, sounds
Tastes, colours and
Joy, truthful devotion
Courage to love
Caress dark void
Filling world with life
Space, time, light
Track Name: Heartwards
Waxing and waning
Growing and fading
We dance through a vital force
Oscillating frequentative flavours
The outbreath of infinity

Oceans of black matter
Collision and motion
Prevailing ultra anticore
Keeper of expansitude
In the egg of Virgo
Supercluster multiply
Fecundation heartwards seed

All within
Track Name: Plateau
Secrets of the multiverse
Vast glimpses over hollow thoughts
Expansion of perception
Clarity through all the worlds
Mind sensation
Body of celestial sphere
The deepness of the ocean of stars Is diving tonight

The sun goes around the axis
The planets go hyperbowl
Infinite the possibilities
Through a holy vortex

The solar sphere pulsating
Through the great galactic cycle
The local group accelerating
Pandirection of a multitude
Track Name: Waltz Mirror
Hear ye, hear ye!
There is a path beyond all this nonsense
Lay those troubled words aside for a moment
And breathe
Track Name: Waltz for Staying Alive
Sandcastles on a shore
Sea waves goodbye
Back to myriads
Back to one

Last rays of sun
Sing blues over a blank page
Moon join the choir
Reflect distant fire

Gentle silver timbre
Let it shine
Over open cage

And then you just
Don't kill yourself
You stay there
And you look it in the eye
And you breathe
And you stay alive
