about

This song was created and recorded a few days before I left for New York.

lyrics

Lift the soil, clear the roots, unearth the pure muddy water of truth,
sought her use, maternal earth and her sodden youth.
Put to use the UV, you be acting collective unity.
We are the bedrock, soon to be soothed suitably.

I’m not a perfect being, got a lot of surface needs,
I sought a lot of normal things, brought thought to absurdities.
I’ve got knotted, neurotic tendencies,
Anxieties pushing through my heart and mind like a part of me.
You and me, we’re a party of three, always in parted company
Breathing oxygen, automated tendencies.
Autopilot, on the mindlessness of necessity.
Dependency senseless for arteries and nervous being.
Far from a constant, haunted by inconsistencies,
Daunting refuting my former declarations of who I am and how I’ll act upon it.
Static, a want of mine at least until I change my mind
Or stop shouting up to the comets,
Like they can hear me lying under a clear sky and I’m starry-eyed.
Connecting constellations, ventilating my stormy side.
Solitude, now give me atomic centrifuge
So I can split and pick my essence apart from all the molecules.

Lift the soil, clear the roots, unearth the pure muddy water of truth,
sought her use, maternal earth and her sodden youth.
Put to use the UV, you be acting collective unity.
We are the bedrock, soon to be soothed suitably.
Clear the roots, unearth the pure muddy water of truth,
Sought her use, maternal earth and her sodden youth.
Put to use the UV, you be acting collective unity.
We are the soil of soon to be germinated seeds.

By the rhythm of the system of interconnected vigilance.
The fission felt’s a temperament of nature split.
The wishlist for the transcendentalist’s living kit’s
All the modern day eco-anarchist sentiments.
Several hints towards a future based in community.
The grid locked, paved top, navigation of city streets.
With the smattered treetops between
The looming shapes of tectonic plates pushing up infinity.
Permanent? We’ll see but it’s not likely,
Lichens are the structure and key to mental stability.
Zoom to 100x what’s your normalcy
And sight the microcosm, netted, ready for noticing.
Vetted is your home, you see, the sore sight of normalcy.
Gotta lower your head down till you’re leveled down with the ground beneath
Acknowledge your presence all paired with nature’s being
We collectively form the 1% of ecology.

Lift the soil, clear the roots, unearth the pure muddy water of truth,
sought her use, maternal earth and her sodden youth.
Put to use the UV, you be acting collective unity.
We are the bedrock, soon to be soothed suitably.
Clear the roots, unearth the pure muddy water of truth,
Sought her use, maternal earth and her sodden youth.
Put to use the UV, you be acting collective unity.
We are the soil of soon to be germinated seeds.
