about

synth ghosts and monster voices, one acoustic rusty string. I was playing with words and thinking about the High-Tang Mt. Poets. Stillness, stillness. I had at that time a bad case of Americanitis. Doctor 'my eyes' the only thing that helped was a melody.

Thanks to Tu Fu, Li Po, & Wang Wei

Track Name: IDEAL LIGHT
Where rivers meet the mountain side
where sparrows meet coldest stare
in honest truths that do not bear repeating
repeating songs, repeating psalms

in ideal light i'm idle stillness
we deliver past and passed on sweet passing on
where lions turn from mane to carrion
carry on carry on

where earth dreamed itself pathless
crooked teeth crooked thieves shepherd crook
in longing kills thinking hills and flies
they pass on to likeness con, cooling sills

in ideal light i'm idle stillness
we deliver past and passed on sweet passing on
where lions turn from mane to carrion
carry on carry on

talk of brothers talk of sister's pain
talk of capture talk of coldest flame
in mumble murmur moonbeam cross lawns
carry on carry on

in glassy glare grown emerald jewels
dawn you gown and gears for growing
where frankness is myrrh and frankincense
deliver on deliver on

earth dreamed itself still
i dreamed path into it and thru it
