lyrics

The negative space
Left by the circles that I run
Am I shaped by what I do
Or haven't done?
If you're looking for opportunity
Its right there under your feet
You can run in an emergency
But you don't have to run to be free
Pretty persuasion
Much less an occasion to leave
Create without claiming
Ambitious, I'll give you
…But a thief
The magic that you seek
May just have to be your own
You can run in an emergency
But you don't have to run to be free
Your bellowing ill-will
And your righteous cruelties
Its better to reveal all the radiance
Of your own discoveries
But your so damned concerned
With the will of self
Everything I know
I've learned from someone else
Imagination
The suspension of disbelief
Daydream fantasia
Made up by the space in between
The magic that you seek
May just have to be your own
Learn to let it bleed
Because roses come with thorns
Earth, rain and fire
My favorite color is the sky
Earthly desires
The courage of liars and mice
The magic that you seek
May just have to be your own
Show them your teeth
Because this mouse roars!

Running on hubris, fumes and parades of exhibition, this acoustic debut lingered as an idea then ballooned into an ambitious navel-gazing interpretation of the Book Of Revelation. I was gonna ask permission, but... ... more
