about

Artemis San Francisco

Spectral keyboard washes and sinuous dance beats set up a feeling of warm alienation while Artemis’s voice heats things further. Over the thump and shimmer, she croons with detached fervor, the music dissolving in a storm of pixie-dust disco until a rude riot of effects snaps the tether and she vanishes. ... more

Track Name: Eye 2 Eye
keep digging
keep digging
through rock and earth and stone
keep digging
keep digging
through ancestral bone
til one day
you break through
to crystalline cavern inside
where we'll find
flowers and diamonds
shine colored stars
in velvet skies
tears fall down
from laughing eyes

ocean can't divide
we are one
only time can separate
and it's an illusion

i'm a white tiger flying through the snow
cool breeze under your noonday sun
clap of thunder to your lightning
coal in your engine
baby burn through me

ocean can't divide
we are one
only time can separate
and it's an illusion
coming of spring
a changing sea
won't stop coming
keep exploding
this love
into me

you never know when it may come again

find me under your feet
in the green grass growing
sitting on your mountainside
watching firefall from the sky

maybe in a moment
we'll see what the stars meant
when they sang
open wide
we need sky
through which to shine
through twinkling arms
from eye 2 eye
through unfolding
wormhole to infinity

ocean can't divide
we are one
only time can separate
and it's an illusion
coming of spring
a changing sea
won't stop coming
keep exploding
this love
into me

you never know when it may come again
be sure to kiss its hand
bathed in milk and honey
Track Name: Quickening
in quickening evolution
million things spring up
million more fall away
no time for yesterday
download an upgrade to the DNA

it takes courage to let go
it's a long way down
from atop a pillar
to the world below
watch it rearranging
all we know

in quickening evolution
begin to dream another way
will many minds work as one
or in isolation burn
from ashes to begin again

caterpillar just a worm
til she melt inside
and become a winged thing
for a moment rise to sing
fleeting toward the light
it takes courage to admit
we need each other to thrive
unclench a fist clasped
round a heart
fingers loosen
unfurl a smile inside

what will come
what we choose
day to day unfolding
outside the daily news
we listen and learn
and throw away
what doesn't serve
another day
to be true
to be kind
makes humankind
rise up
simple to remember
easy to forget
moving at the speed of life

poor shephards
lost and snowblind
inches from the cottage door
love light a fire
light a fire inside
sweat inspiration from your pores
passion from your eyes
til you feel a pulse of light
rise up inside
realign

in quickening evolution
dig fingers into earth
synch up heartbeats
heal what's broken
dry twig blossom
Track Name: Patience
miles wide
distance makes no difference
when the heart travels
at the speed of light

patience
looking to you as he waits at the station
for me
sure as we'll ever be
train will come in

day and night
time it has no consequence
unless your pulse
is six thousand beats an hour

patience
i must confess
i've been holding my breath
don't you see
how much he means to me
tell me we're meant to be

patience
looking to you as he waits at the station
for me
sure as we'll ever be
train will come in
eventually
Track Name: Cellos Lament
honeysuckle moon
half-closed buddhas eye
gaze down
while cellos lament
slowly pull
cirrus streaks
across inky sky

honeysuckle moon
half-closed buddhas eye
gaze down
on souls cast adrift
through doldrums
waiting for wind

can't stand standing still
give me endless open road
headlights creep up from behind
and surround
til i drown in light
bright enough to blind
so i close my eyes
let go of the wheel
trusting in
what's pulling in me

trust in what's pulling me

you say let go i let go
hold on i hold on
curtains rise
i fly
by a string suspended
from heart to hand
live only for the dancing
Track Name: Back to Eden
like a seventeen year cicada
dormant in a root
awake
activate
drawn along the lay lines
chain of fairy lights
follow the signs
back to eden

buttons in coffee shops
blue shirt tight black jeans
king of cups
circus barker
and i perched on precipice
sing
it's time
dive accipiter
catch a bird
or a lover
or prey
on your way down
back to eden

i was just a breeze along a highway
til time tatooed me
with you
ink indelible
etched into a limb
in the shape of a compass
pointing into oblivion
filament magnetic
join us
back to eden

comet ISON
icarus kiss the sun
frail living leaves burn with you
brighter than cold stars
it ain't for the faint of heart
chaos tailspin complexity
wobble and burst into wing
particle accellerator
back to eden

blindfolded with wings
leaping off the back of a headless horse
i throw the pieces in the air
where to land
out on a limb
i coulda been
some strange fruit
til a two headed fish
with smiles on both sides
said it's just a game
it's just a ride
roller coaster can't hurt you
not even if you die

and in the end
one and one
don't make two
or one
love is like eleven
two spines stand tall
side by side
bareback galloping
trail of rhinestone children
in the dust of our wake
as we fly
back to eden
