Kindly Bent to Free Us Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. True Hallucination Speak (6:03)
Bits, a handful of irregular bits
A colored glass colors the light
Warms up my spine

Stars flatsix-pointed stars
Hexagon like baby blocks
I've sewn a cloth

True hallucination speak (inhale)
You better get a friend to help you (exale)
Against the stream
You've got to make amends with the truth

Glide, a living language collides
Chrysanthemum like mandala
Give birth two eyes

True hallucination speak (inhale)
You better get a friend to help you (exale)
Against the stream
You've got to make amends with the truth

Pop snap crackle and pop
Science fiction memory
Interleaved
Illuminates the heart
And I won't let you down
I might come form outer space
But I'm here with you now
And we'll travel between worlds

(Inhale)
You better get a friend to help you
(Exale)
You've got to make amends with the truth

The shimmer
Of that sound
In the mouth
Love's design
Accomplished
2. The Lion's Roar (4:35)
Bury the bells
Between two mountains
The big trees on the other side
With illuminated leaves shout

I can say nothing
You've been uprooted
It's time to take another road

I will
Kiss the mouth of reality's face
I will
Annihilate my hiding place
I will
Fade into the rising smoke

I hear the lion's roar

Animals are something invented by plants
To move seeds around
An extremely yang solution
To a peculiar problem, which they faced

Now i must take their medicine

I will
Sharpen the stone on the angel's tongue
And wield
A blow to unreality's front

Illusions
Flow out from this mortal wound
As i wake to the sound of the lion's roar

And from your throat you
You sing to me your secrets
A proclamation
That everything, everything is workable

No resistance
A pathway to the heart
In you i know
How i am born

(Solo)

I hear the lion's roar
3. Kindly Bent to Free Us (6:27)
Kindly bent to free us,
A heart-to-heart farewell,
My armor begins to rust,
It forms the scrapyard gates to hell.

DNA,
Trapped in ice.
Absorbed into a fossil site.

My cheek cells traced to an ancient human figure.
Hobbit-sized.

Kindly bent to free us,
The joy, the sorrow, and the pain.
Life returns to mother dust,
Abroad we sail to sink one day.

Beyond mere blood lineage or self-transcending simian.
I arise to taste the dawn and find that love will shine on.

Evolution.
Beyond rationality.
The one solution to turn my head and imitate.

The sun.
The one who's always been,
Has seen much worse than this projection.
Persecution.

Kindly bent to free.
Kindly bent to free us.
Kindly bent.
Kindly bent to free us.
Kindly bent.
Kindly bent to free us.
4. Infinite Shapes (4:57)
The indivisible, could sick and irreplaceable, loose neck
It never satisfies, incomplete
The future world enough,
nothing to say, don't you worry now

Infinite shapes, I cut ten shades of pain
Infinite shapes, paper daggers at blame

Can't conceive, blades drawn
Stuck inside of me, spreading down
With nothing silver eyes, crack the edge
Our eyes turn to gold, don't live like this
I am not worried now

Infinite shapes, I'll forget tiny rays
Infinite shapes, by turn could not shells and gaze

Sit down, be on your own, cry
to the eternal holes
and I have missed the ball
One spark, til you cross the dark
Be craft emeralds, become dust filled with dead

Infinite shapes, I cut ten shades of pain
Infinite shapes, paper daggers at blame
Infinite shapes, I'll forget tiny rays
Infinite shapes, by turn could not shells and gaze

The indivisible, could sick and irreplaceable, loose neck
I won't worry now.
5. Moon Heart Sun Head (5:21)
I let the moon in my heart
To ventilate
An embryonic wisdom
Where I get to awake
A living flame
I turn the key
Open the door
The atmosphere enters my home
Cause the moon's inside my heart

I hold the sun in my head
To self-contain
A cocoon melts inside me
Protection's just a weight
I can be brave
In gentle ways
Step out into the open space
Eye-level truth

They're the one in the same
Moon heart sun head

I'm black and blue
And smile at fear
I'm broke and bruised
And smile at fear

They're one in the same
Moon heart sun head

[Spoken word interlude by Alan Watts]
6. Gitanjali (3:58)
The lightening splits the ice
Thunder twice
Swallowed by rain
Then black floods
Slit the hills
A turnpike filled
I am a weed by the wall

Gitanjali, keep swimming

The aching void in me
Sings softly
I fear no one
A cold hand at my door
The sinking floor
I am a soul on the run

Gitanjali, keep swimming

Goodbye to all of you
It's useless to refuse the muse
Let's carry on for future generations gone

Gitanjali, keep swimming

Goodbye to all of you
It's useless to refuse the muse
Let's carry on for future generations gone

And between living and dying
There's a third thing, yes
The victorious has left the room

Gitanjali, keep swimming
7. Holy Fallout (6:35)
A star at dawn
A bubble in a stream
A flash of lightening in
A summer cloud
A flickering lamp
A phantom and a dream

Aspirations
Chained to grindstones at your feet
Contradictions
Behold what you're afraid to see
Dear world
I can't offer an explanation
There's no one here but love

No conflict
No mind tricks
Mother Earth guide my ship
Comfort me
Despite me
Oh mercy, radiate your grace on me

Out of the ground
Where I hide my tangled head
To take the North Star
And the alchemy is met
Dear world
I can't offer an explanation
There's no one here but love

Laugh and spit
Into the air
Laugh and spirt
There could be
There should be
There will be holy fallout

No conflicts
No mind tricks
Comfort me
Remind me
8. Endlessly Bountiful (3:56)
You're endless, endlessly bountiful
Truth does not change
