Track Name: Float
Comes a cool breeze
off a sun-kissed moonbeam
at the meeting
of two oceans

No one’s truly
forgot who’s ruling
that underlying
motion



Concentrate with me
as we steep our tea
in the passing
of the seasons

Let us integrate
things we appreciate
and not dwell
upon the reasons



Over-analyze things
you think you know
but you’ll decide that
holding on is worse
than letting go

If you revise
the things you think
you’ll come to realize
acceptance is
the only way to grow



Buoyant bodies awake
drifting foggy
finally free
to float

Intelligence tethered
light as a feather
conscious of
the flow



Necessity is key
and we are the link
to consonant
cohesion

Let us integrate
things we appreciate
and not dwell
upon the reasons



Over-analyze things
you think you know
but you’ll decide that
holding on is worse
than letting go

If you revise
the things you think
you’ll come to realize
acceptance is
the only way to grow
Track Name: Friction
There’s a dark, cold place
in the spaces between
Need to warm it up with
some of your close proximity

The heat’s in the beat
so let’s switch up our positions
Get off your seat, come taste the treat
of man’s oldest tradition



‘Cuz the still and cold
fade with the motion
of your soles



I want you to move,
but that’s a given
I guess I always
give myself away

I need you to come
give me your rhythm
and the friction of your feet
ignites the way



Baby let your surface slide
and watch the sparks start to fly
kindling, tinder, turn to cinder
with your stimulating sleight

I see the spark in your eyes
you’re the match to my ambition
fit to strike a light up right
so let this key find your ignition



‘Cuz the still and cold
fade with the motion
of your soles



I want you to move,
but that’s a given
I guess I always
give myself away

I need you to come
give me your rhythm
and the friction of your feet
ignites the way
Track Name: Two Worlds
Safely inside
my calm
sequestered mind
I find my peace

But lately
pinstriped lines shine
cascading shadows
through my dreams

Ringing
dissonant caprice
faintly singing
echoes of distant cries



Two Worlds
one time
Two Worlds
one mind



Tranquil surface
lies guiding
spectral sighs
through cryptic seas

Lucid vision
resounds
overtones of light
refracting sound

Roiling waves
reside
timeless secret hides
in silent streams



Two Worlds
one time
Two Worlds
one mind
Track Name: Soup
When I first envisioned
life beyond the deep
it began with a slow crawl
and climbed into a creep

along the long ascension
I became anew
no longer pretending bout
what I had to do



As the darkness faded
colors turned to light
No longer a caveman
I developed sight

The water’s getting warmer
think it’s time I flew the coup
I know things are changing
rising from the soup


Rising from the soup
I know things are changing
it’s time I flew the coup
Rising from the soup
Track Name: Garden
The sun shines smiling
upon Displace
in this space
with these faces
erasing all traces of sadness

No animosity,
just happiness, gladness
it’s madness
how this family came to be
You see,

Displace planted the seeds;
but y’all provide the love
and nourishment!
With that essential ingredient,
we’re exponentially flourishing!

Servicing communities
nationwide
Asheville, Boulder, NOLA, Tampa,
That's right

Expanding minds,
collecting consciousness
gaining confidence and prominence
to conquer the continents

Displace:
the name is synonymous
with face-melting solos
and the blessings of Providence

a consequence of constant support
and bottomless love
the listeners of our music
reflect that which I speak of



Everything we’ve grown
from flower to root
is a labor of love
and you are the fruit



Gotta mind your harvest
shine on in its glow
Gotta find your part and
guide your garden to grow

Gotta walk in wonder
wander with the flow
Just be mindful of the
Pry of the undertow



The hardest part of being an artist
is starting a garden
and constantly questioning
the wisdom to embark on it

Never quite certain
Of the quality of the harvest
self-doubt sparks
disheartening self-arguments

The mantis preys
On this self contention
To rise up from the soup
Is an admirable ascension

Float above the fog
In enlightened unknown
To a place of peace
That'll heighten your home

But see to it that the light
Doesn't burn you blind
if poise becomes pride
It can poison your mind

Balance can be found
where these beams align
Like the gravity of gratitude
Inspiring the tides

We live in these two worlds
Oscillating restlessly
Perpetual perplexion
An accidental necessity

As Destiny desperately
declines to decide
Which side of the line
Your garden resides



Doubt will find you
If you stay there
Indecision
Mantis preys there



Gotta mind your harvest
shine on in its glow
Gotta find your part and
guide your garden to grow

Gotta walk in wonder
wander with the flow
Just be mindful of the
Pry of the undertow
Track Name: Mantis
Baby
I wanna lay you down
You’re crazy
but I can’t stop now

That manic disguise
I wanna fight this feeling
You wanna bite my green wings

Cannibal eyes
fertile, but deceiving
BABY PLEASE DON’T EAT ME!


Another time, another day
Another chance to feel this way
Anyhow, oh any way

I’ll disregard the things I need
Forget the things that I believe
Right now, oh anyhow


Praying mantis
gonna take my chances
saw her teeth
but Imma do it anyway

Praying mantis
come and get your answers
shoulda run
but I ain’t gonna get away

Oh I would like to take a taste!



Lady!
I’m hungry for your sound
Maybe
that’s how Icarus went down



Those lies tantalize
I know it’s just a tease
Too sharp to call naive

Still I fly toward your light
I know I can’t believe you
but parts of me just need you for


Another time, another day
Another chance to feel this way
Anyhow, oh any way

I’ll disregard the things I need
Forget the things that I believe
Right now, oh anyhow


Praying mantis
gonna take my chances
saw her teeth
but Imma do it anyway

Praying mantis
come and get your answers
shoulda run
but I ain’t gonna get away
Track Name: The Flight of Admiral Archibald
The admiral ascends above the clouds
Escaping from his fears below
The freedom of the sky begins to shroud
what occupied his mind before

War’s what matters to him now
the flight out to the northern shore
with confidence, he conquers the unknown
old Archibald, brave to the core



The carousel of spinning props propel
the salty dog above the sea
Unphased amidst the threat of death, alone,
He’s used to being lonely

The sky’s the only place he’s ever felt at home
His purpose strong, his path his own
The admiral, an object of the war,
may never reach the northern shore….



He takes the final flight
he won’t return after tonight
the plane is gone, the engine stalled
Goodbye, goodbye, to Archibald
