I have left for mars n' join my stars take no questions And if I get my way Then I'll go dark Join my stars leave this skin Do you care to join? Come on and flip that coin Ask for what it's worth Will you stay on earth? And if you do, what you choose Just can't loose All this love Can't you see Take it with you when you go Go with ease meet and greet enhance your sight And then we’ll see You want failure victory I want misery Somehow, we shall meet you are eternal I am ephemeral there's no distinction now Open up your mind but please mind your step What you do now effects What will be Forget your weepy sorrows and weep for humankind In the end all your tales get swallowed up Hermes said Every pair has it opposite n' this thesis is consistent and equal parts foolish and inept All this love Can't you see Take it with you when you go Go with ease meet and greet enhance your sight And then we’ll see You want misery I want victory Somewhere we can be You are ephemeral I am eternal Somehow, we shall see Open up your mind but please don’t mind me What you do now affects what will be Everybody knows a way yet the way has no road Now sleep on the brow of Father Time All this love, cant you, take it with you when you go

Pennies have no worth if they're not in your pocket Sun shines no light with no eyes there to see it As you may have guessed, by now I have conceded Once in the dark but now there's blindness Travel from here to there, still you’re going nowhere There’s no place to go but you’re not standing still Derangement ensues with panic down Jacobs ladder Oh, how the mind does lie as it borrows a dime All in all is all you need with ears to hear Lean on your will and bend to order This with key in hand is the groove of knowledge Even these words ring hollow and nescient Straddle the edge of order and chaos All in all is all you have with eyes to see Consonance dissonance All in all is you want All in all is all you know What you need is what you have All in all is all you want when there’s no other way Something can’t come from nothing And then it gets another shot

Don’t want to be controlled by my ego no more I don’t want to imprison my own soul My own soul that heavy glow Take a look around and you know that I’ve been fortunate to know Milk and honey is not something I could afford I don’t need anyone to know my name I feel that it’s the same as putting names To drops of rain I know this body is not something I truly own Something says I'm going to know the shapeless form of wind The flow of wood grain I get this feeling I can’t describe and I can’t ignore Something says I'm going to know and I won’t compromise The way things truly work is troubling to hear I guess I'll retire now as the suns sinking low Ten thousand directions none is home Home is just the place you’re standing when you realize you are home

Behold our man Cold as ice Something says predictability And it comes as no surprise Something in his eyes Can’t quite get a grasp Of why he does what he does 1, 2, 3 that can't be me Its salty sweet and can’t be seen From front to back The odds are stacked Two-sided coin hinges on duality If you're hearing well you don't hear your ears at all You say tell me what I want to hear I'll tell you what you need to know and so on and on Here comes our man Bold as Night Something says inevitability Now we've been through this before It's foolish and what’s more You feel you can't ignore So gather your arms and look around It’s true, the fall is near There is no war No use for your gun Nowhere to run Surrendering is the seed of action If you're seeing well You don't see your eyes at all I stopped telling my tragedy in fear I’d start to believe

Felix my friend You are a garden gnome Felix my friend You’ll be there till’ The sun can’t shine on I don’t want you to feel the slighted guest I’ll have you over anytime Won’t you be there in the morning Wait for me at night Without asking for a thing Give like water I don’t feel that it’s true That I own something quite like you Even if it’s for the night Oh the moon is on the rise You’re the fools gold of my night Shine on twice as bright And on and on Even though you are not real By standards handed down All long that olive branch Up and down that olive branch All along that olive branch Felix my friend I’m gonna lose the game Felix my friend You don’t know how To feel conception And now and then it’s just a rhyming game Caught in between your silent name Hold me fast to this my light Then gone right of out of sight You’re a mystic with no eye Open up my little heart Plastic odes and frilly sharps Of this wandering melody Fool’s gold is what I seek Having you for a friend If it’s morning we can’t speak And I know you’re waiting Even though you are not real By standards handed down All along that olive branch Up and down that olive branch Localized at Wawona ranch

The holy sea is no coward Alarms are armed Albeit loose and passive Amid an early dawn And you'll find Piece of mind Hidden in the breeze For these bones As they lie Resting with great ease Somewhere is a frown lit ablaze Some weeping flower still decays Deaths creeping on Creeping on in Open up you gates Heaven Awaits those who ask Bolt your doors Hell hides behind good fortune in vain Life and love is the same Hate breeds the glue Held and contained Sadness is gladness in waiting All from above and down below Your smile is contagious It echoes through the ages Sit still in the heat Move around to shake the cold There's not one forlorn answer To keep the truth at bay And the most we can offer Is that he died today Open up you gates Heaven Awaits those who ask Bolt your doors Hell hides behind good fortune in vain Yeah love and life is the same Hate breeds the glue Held and contained Sadness is gladness in waiting All from above and down below

I’ve given up on perfection As it pertains to direction Carry on our ways, no guarantee On the level Daylight comes and daylight goes Just as the mark of process Motionless and still Is your perception Don’t worry about us Don’t warn us Don’t tell us the truth Don’t warn us Don’t make it seem real We want to choose Thrown into the dark I left my eyes on mars This feeling’s not brand new Three of our senses come in two’s Two ears Two eyes The face of moon is only seen When sun shines on half That views not created, its revealed I know my faults are guarded I look on tides and hold on Dying on the altar of big old news We are guided by our gut Where we walk, the gut goes first The head follows soon thereafter Rather fortify Let desire subside Like clear water when the mud settles and stills I try to speak very soft I try to treat people the same Like the holding of a baby in my arms Give love a chance Give hate no room So I limit the use of I’m sorry I’m worthless I’ve wronged you Just say things you mean And tell the truth Thrown into the dark I left my eyes on mars This feeling’s not brand new Three of our senses come in two’s Two ears Two eyes

Today is a great day Tomorrow is not here so we’ll stay Love like two birds on branch And I'll keep this image in my head I can't decide what greatness is But I know can recognize how it works And you are the one for me It’s a balance I believe Looking out on the bay Looking out on the ways Not much to say Looking out on the bay A heart full of want is never full And always searching Round and round we go I do not own you but you are my gift And this, this I know We will never be without a friend This union is till the end Love like seed to soil Looking out on the bay Looking out on the ways Not much to say Looking out on the bay A heart full of want is never full And always searching Round and round we go I do not own you but you are my gift And this, this I know
