Atma tracks

Lyrics

1. PREPARE THE GROUND

One hundred thousand
Repetitions
Recite the mantra
Flowers unfold
Loosen the grip
Undo the fiction
Release the power
Trapped in the story

One hundred thousand
Thousand million thoughts
Streams of tomorrow
Drowning this moment
Loosen the noose
Release the bonds
Breathe in the power
Of no tomorrow

This mystery never ends
Angels and demons smiling
Embrace the burial mound
Prepare the ground

One hundred thousand
Nightmares obscure
The precious knowledge
Form is illusion
Loosen the noose
Release the bonds
Breathe in the power
Held in this moment

Prepare the ground
The burial mound
Breathe in the power
Held in this moment
This blessed grave
This blessed death

Streams of tomorrow
Cleanse our fate
Silver moon
Trumpet sounds
All to awaken
Prepare the ground
Awaken




2. ATMA

This dream of fullness
This fleeting glimpse
The wind blowing through the trees
Red rising sun
Hues of the living
The gasp of the dying
Water mixes with blood
Blood mixes with earth
The earth a silent witness
Witness to the dawn

Call of Atma
Shining in all
Awakened
To the call

Burning within
From what must be
Desire of the one
Water mixes with blood
Blood mixes with earth
The earth
A witness
To the call

Burning within
From what must be
The desire of the one
To be witnessed




3. BEFORE WE DREAMED OF TWO

Behold glory in our hands
Glory staring into skin
Vast like the sky
Flesh and blood
Stars in space reaching onward

SELF reaching outward
Into the within
Without armor
On and on
Ever deeper
SELF reaching outward
Into within

Beyond the eyes
A hidden life
Beyond the ears
A symphony
Selfless beating heart
Rhythm of the breath

Life inherent
Before we dreamed of two
Life inherent
Before we dreamed of one

Another night that sets the eye
To the truth
Burning tall towards the mountain
Feeding all that come to see
The beast
With the blood that breathes
The release

Arresting dawn
Bringing the rest to see
All our deliverers
Have seen here before
Another day rooted in
Fallen trees
Wash the mind at sea
Distant silver shore
Bring my body




4. UPON THE SIGHT OF THE OTHER SHORE

Fire burns through darkness
Unseen unveiled
Come bear to witness
Belief shaken to the core
Upon the sight of the other shore

Heaven speaks in riddles
Prophets speak in tongues
The dead speak in silence
Love smiles in surrender

Red eyes in desperation
A world we cannot escape
Clutching hate like a weapon
Blood in our hands
Expound the gospel

Belief shaken to the core
Upon the sight of the other shore




5. ADRIFT IN THE OCEAN

Siren's call
From the sea
Raging current
Pulls us under
Fighting for air
Scream for release
As colors dance and weave

To the universe we send
A reflection

Adrift in the ocean
Colors take hold
Shadows take shape
Shimmering
Neutral substratum
Vast without end
Our heart's evolution

Dreams of gods
Of us
Of the fall
Dreams of mountains
We feel
To the marrow
To commune
With what we lost
