Eye 2 Eye 05:19
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

Quickening 05:01
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

Patience 02:53
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

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

Back to Eden 05:07
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

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
