1. Veil Of Maya (5:23)
In maya`s grip illusion transforms verity
perceiving thus a delusive world of duality

Veil of maya
balance every joy with a grief
dual scales of maya
earth`s unending law polarity

Ahamkara... veil of maya

Illusion works impenetrable
weaving webs innumerable
her gay pictures never fail
crowd each other veil on veil
charmer who will be believed
maya subjects you

Veil of maya
chops and divides god`s dream thoughts
the great divider
as we be subject to likes and disgust

Ahamkara... veil of maya

Maya subjects you
charmer who will be believed
by man who thirsts to be deceived

Veil of maya
balance every joy with a grief
dual scales of maya
earth`s unending law of polarity

Veil of maya
chops and divides god`s dream thoughts
the great divider
as we be subject to likes and disgust

Ahamkara... veil of maya
2. Celestial Voyage (3:40)
As I peeped into my mortal cup of mind
a molten liquid of penance splashed my eyes

Unseen truth, a divine surgery
reveals view, windows of faith
the breeze to, a raft of happiness
guiding cue, calmness in mental lake

A celestial voyage
to reach the shores and bathe
in pools of divine nectar

My raft filled with delusive waste water
shall be drained by holes of wisdom

A celestial voyage
to reach the shores and bathe
in pools of divine nectar

A celetial voyage
to feel the bliss of liquid
healing nectar inside
3. The Eagle Nature (3:31)
Learning diseerning, how to arrange
thinking the haze will just not clear
viewing, computing, our minds will stage
a vehicle inside we feel, the eagle nature

Everchanging river flows high and low
panoramic vision is undefined

For unfocused consciousness, the eagle nature
precaution for a stream of risk, the eagle nature
it sees changes clear

A crystal gobiet, so fragile and dear
needs fill one step at a time

Noting the fall of a sparrow
attending the slightest scratch of flesh
earthly ambitions weigh their share
the vastness of life, it doesn`t care

A crystal goblet so fragile and dear
needs fill one step at a time

Earthly ambitions weigh their share
the vastness of life, it doesn`t care
4. Sentiment (4:24)
Cosmic mother awaken us in
thine impartial love for all
bless us that we be free from
the sway of greed and delusion
inspire us to build a new world
one in which famine, disease and ignorance
will be only memories of a dismal past

Creative mother arouse us to know
inspire us to build a new world
since forever we`ve yearned to
quench what`s never fulfilling
lost endeavors found in a stilled
mind if we be willing

Creative mother arouse us to know
that we be not lost in the sands
... open our eyes
5. I'm But A Wave To... (5:31)
As one I`ll meet the mortal memories
reliving seeking silence
and know that I as just a shell outside
have sacred joys inside me

No fear, nor fight, comforting silent side
so free, through flight, comforting silence

So I call on
Sri cosmic sea, all is within you
as in a dream, I`m but a wave to...

Infinity within thy consciousness
and ever expanding sphere
immortal spark ignites
spreads by the air of bliss
embracing warmth that heals

No fear, nor fight, comforting silence
so free, through flight, comforting silent side

So I call on
Sri cosmic sea, all is within you
as in a dream, I`m but a wave to...
6. Uroboric Forms (3:32)
Self is the universe, not separate
the state before the fall into
self consciousness

Nothing is himself, everything is world

Primordial egg retains
consciousness unborn
pre-personal perfection
bliss`s screen yet untorn
uroboric forms

Find itself as a separate entity
an ego germ is just beginning to be

Wherever there is other, there is fear

Birth, primal paradise
no gap distance or separation
between self and environment
unconditional omnipotence

Nothing is himself, everything is world

Primordial egg retains
consciousness unborn
pre-personal perfection
bliss`s screen yet untorn
uroboric forms
consciousness unborn
uroboric forms
7. Textures (4:42)
INSTRUMENTAL
8. How Could I (5:29)
How could I forget such a revelaion
to love without fear and learn without question
how could I regret the meant occasions
I must begin this day again

Freedom and reason shine through
paddle upon the clouds one`s own canoe

how could I

Humility take charge of me
drown me in truths modest waters
loosen your grip identity
free me from and ego`s falter

Love too often is only a dream
if I am harsh and unkind to myself
so I share these attitudes with you
must I cry? how could I?

Freedom and reason shine through
paddle upon the clouds one`s own canoe

Love too often is only a dream
if I am harsh and unkind to myself
so I share these attitudes with you
for in this spewing cadence of my pride
how could I!
