Track Name: Dissipating Past
Dissipating past
Gone at last
Through the cracks of time

Instigating fast
That what comes
And crawls up from behind
Track Name: Serendipity
The coincidence of searching the expected to appear
And finding that what was not supposed to be there
Undeliberately procrastinating the ever so, ever so sought

The unexpected happiness of an encounter with one’s Utopy
Something even Sir Dave Attenborough admires quietly
It’s obvious the chase is better than the catch as such, you see

This serendipity

Don’t go focusing on your preliminary needs
Nor the stuff you dream of, masturbating
By definition I will suddenly appear, so do not fear

This serendipity
What you really need
Is me.
Track Name: Searching for a Second I
As the clouds drift by in our desert sky
We realize
We’re isolated in our separate minds

We were craving to be satisfied
And that’s why
We keep searching for a second I
We need light
Track Name: Descending Mount Venus
Awaking from a bad dream
We find ourselves on top of Mount Venus
Cold chills on our backs
Pushing us towards what lies ahead

A sudden breeze blows dust out of our eyes
As we become aware of dazzling heights
Mount Venus comforts us
With the view of our future journey

Afar a light finds way into our minds
Like a second sun
As we become aware
The only possible way is down


Descending Mount Venus
We do acknowledge our destination
Bleeding and broken
But more satisfied than ever befor
