Sync Or Swim 05:55
the law of gravity is nonsense no such law exists if i think i float and you think i float then it happens do you remember (oh precious flower) sleeping in a glass box under juniper and sun one for sorrow two for joy three for a girl and four for a boy five for silver six for gold seven for secrets never told le oiseau chante une fois (the bird sings once) avec ses droigts (with its fingers)
2.
i ascend from the moon i ascend from the night to swim the endless fluid freedom to find my delight wide as the ocean where it kisses the sky love’s pure water fountain of life under the waves and dreaming every molecule of me rearranging it’s a chemical reaction i can’t hide my resistance is low volatility on the rise like a fountain of life

Angel 06:05
just inside the skin of this bubble i’m in all sensation smooth and warm and slippery to the touch and the taste in my mouth as i breathe in and out clouds of flowers and stars every kiss whispers its message every touch poses its riddle like a sphinx at the gate of the garden saying who do you think you are who do you think you are and in between these hazy dreams i catch a glimpse of reunion there’s nothing can stop us we’re already flying in formation holding pattern hovering over our desire just a little revolution a hundred million year carousel around the sun a hundred billion sons and daughters rising and falling and dreaming their way on as the painted horses slide up and down but i’m here now i’m here now in the blink of an eye in the tremble of a lip like a flower baring its breast to the sun in the beckoning gesture petals wide open in the drawing in knowing it’s all or it’s none and in between these hazy dreams i catch a glimpse of reunion

nothing really dies nothing’s ever lost forever nothing really dies it’s a beautiful life a child swaddled in questions drifting through the universe with no compass to guide but a tiny ember burns like a star inside it’s a beautiful life caught in this gravity of being this soul’s fire makes diamonds of the darkness in me one blackbird chases after another blindly to secure a little big of real estate a corner of the sky to conquer it’s a beautiful life caught in this gravity of being this soul’s fire makes diamonds of the darkness in me cast in a silent spell immobility frozen under ice and stone mountain wraps its arms round me pressing diamonds of this heart of coal it’s a beautiful life (live only once and shine a light underground) beautiful (for all of us who yearn for one moment) nothing really dies nothing’s ever lost forever

grandmother gets dressed up like a wolf she says the only religion to be true is the smell of the sea and the sound of the wind when you take a deep breath and let the whole world rush on in you build them up and you break them down with all those bright ideas you could build a bustling town or you could cool your mind from building empires in the sky just take a deep breath and let the whole world rush on by baba baba it’s a wide open sky spiraling down like an ammonite made of tides and twilight crushed like a shell beneath your step born again from your lips grandmother gets dressed up like a wolf she says the thing that always brings me back to you is the smell of the sea and the sound of the wind when i take a deep breath and let the whole world rush on in baba baba it’s a wide open sky

Inception 05:41
in the home of the free and the land of the brave i know you i know you would never be enslaved to the object of your desire it’s like walking on a tightrope wire when everything you see everything is just a mirror of what you believe we’re in this world but not of it in this world but not of it in this world but not in this world up is not always up and down does not mean out and sometimes a fairy tale can’t show you what you’re all about but if you listen closely oh say don’t you see everything everything everything is here to set you free we’re in this world but not of it in this world but not of it in this world but not in this world and we walk in twisted midnite under an alien sky listening to ninety-nine channels of white noise we’re in this world but not of it in this world but not of it in this world but not in this world

Subterranean 04:14
secret worlds secret wishes making for you making for you a hundred thousand hidden kisses saving for you saving for you swimming into treacherous waters to be near you to be near you in between reality and dreaming waiting for you waiting for you waiting

La Belle 04:35
je suis la porte a ta chambre la belle je suis ta mirroir la belle réfléchissez pour moi je réfléchirais pour vous n’ayez pas peur je n’aurai pas peur tu flottes dans le couloir la belle comme les anges dans mes rêves la belle réfléchissez pour moi je réfléchirais pour vous réfléchissez pour moi vas ou je vais, Le Magnifique vas, vas, vas ne cherches pas comprendre vas ou je vais, Le Magnifique vas, vas, vas ne cherches pas ne cherches pas réfléchissez pour moi je réfléchirais pour vous n’ayez pas peur je n’aurai pas peur réfléchissez pour moi

Hypno 05:41
it’s been a long night the warmth of you washed the strange clouds from my eyes rolled all my dreams into one perfect little world one tiny seed i hold in my hand one key that turns if my heart beats faster if time is slowing down it doesn’t frighten me i’m still spinning round watching dark turn into light turn into dark turn into light when my tongue is tingling for a bit of sunshine one ray comes to crack me open spill me on the ground so i can mingle with the earth and stones mix a little new life into these bones if my heart beats faster if time is slowing down it doesn’t frighten me i’m still spinning round watching dark turn into light turn into dark turn into light

Only Begun 09:47
when i thought it was over only begun love i thought i could handle grows so strong when i thought it was over only begun you drifted to me like a wisp of a cloud soft lips parting uttered not a sound i felt so warm cradled in your arms but now i see you were only floating freely when i thought it was over only begun love i thought i could handle grows so strong when i thought it was over only begun my heart was hidden in an ebony stone you cracked it open kisses like rays of sun i thought i’d go crazy when you were gone but now i see you surround me laughing in dreams i close my eyes the night glitters and you beckon to me i tiptoe softly so not to waken from angelic slumber i read your letter the ground trembles and the stars bend down to whisper

Prayer 06:11
oh precious flower may those who have not given birth to precious bodhicitta may they give birth may those who have given birth may their bodhicitta not lessen but increase further and further oh precious flower it is the universal bridge that leads to freedom from unhappy states of birth it is the inexhaustible treasure that eliminates poverty in the world oh precious flower

about

Artemis' silky, heavenly alto floats over dreamy organic soundscapes and smart, dynamic beats. Combining elements of trip-hop, drum and bass, breakbeat and poptronica, Artemis fuses a hybrid sound that can take you from a rocking club to a late night lounge and everywhere in between.

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
