about

"For as Sound in a Bell or musical String, or other sounding Body, is nothing but a trembling Motion, and in the Air nothing but that Motion propagated from the Object, and in the Sensorium 'tis a Sense of that Motion under the Form of Sound; so Colours in the Object are nothing but a Disposition to reflect this or that sort of Rays more copiously than the rest; in the Rays they are nothing but their Dispositions to propagate this or that Motion into the Sensorium, and in the Sensorium they are Sensations of those Motions under the Forms of Colours."

-Isaac Newton

Track Name: The Color Of Mars
red the color of mars
the end of a star
the start of a new day

red the color of sparks
a leap in the dark
the warmth of a sun ray

red look what's begun
a radiant sun rise
startling first cries

red the color of blood
of pain and of love
pain and of love

red the color of mars
your wandering star
the start of your first day
Track Name: Giant Tiger
there's a giant tiger and she's moving in the trees
she's quiet on her four gigantic paws
she's quiet as a whisper
quiet as the breeze
quiet as a breath between her jaws

there's a giant tiger and she's moving in the trees
she's wild and she hasn't any laws
she doesn't say she's sorry
she doesn't try to please
she does the things she does because because

creep tiger
walk tiger
sneak tiger
stalk tiger
breath tiger
crouch tiger
freeze tiger
pounce

there's a giant tiger and she's moving through the trees
she's wild and she hasn't any laws
she doesn't say she's hungry
she just decides to eat
and i hope she doesn't meet you when she does

creep tiger
walk tiger
sneak tiger
stalk tiger
breath tiger
crouch tiger
freeze tiger
pounce
Track Name: Yellow Headed Sun
some are born to sweetest kisses
some are born to pain and strife
some are showered in golden riches
some walk on the sunny side of life

oh hello hello hello hello
yellow yellow yellow
yellow headed son of mine
is it our wake up time

and we will share some sweetest kisses
and we will share some pain and strife
and we will share our golden riches
and walk on the sunny side of life

good morning
darling
time to raise your sleepy head and
hello hello hello hello

hello
yellow
yellow headed son of mine
is it our wake up time

good morning
darling
time to raise your sleepy head and
hello hello hello hello
yellow
Track Name: Lazy Lima Beans
money doesn't grow on trees
it's ok we like the leaves
rustling when those summer breezes blow

rest your heavy head on me
we'll make up a melody
sit back watch those lima lima beans grow

and oh those lazy lima beans
they always know the perfect green
rest your head on me
catch a couple z's
be my lazy lima bean

money doesn't grow on trees
it doesn't pay the bumble bees
that ain't the green that grows

but oh those lazy lima beans
they always know the perfect green
rest your head on me
catch a couple z's
be my
be my
be my lazy lima bean
Track Name: Who Made My Baby Blue
who made my baby blue
what bug is eating you
what stone is in your shoe
baby blue

who made my baby cry
who wet those weary eyes
a cloud hangs over you
baby blue

so we go 1234 stomp on the floor
gnash all your baby teeth or
thrash with your hands and feet
you're like the mean old centipede
stomping on the off beats

who made my baby blue
and there is nothing your mom and your dad can do for you
so relax, this too shall pass
baby blue
Track Name: Impossible Indigo
the midnight blues begin to glow
impossible indigo
indigo, impossible possible blue

close your eyes, just let go
of the things that you think you know
indigo, impossible possible you

close your eyes, just let go
of the things that you think you know
indigo, improbably proba-believa-becausable
impossible possible you
Track Name: Violet In The Magic Hour
something familiar seen in the sky
somehow peculiar in shimering light
some apparition a quivering flame
strange combination of sunlight and rain

violet in the magic hour
sky lit through a summer shower

don't take a picture, see with your eye
no need to whisper, you're already quiet
just an illusion a quivering flame
some strange confusion of sunlight and rain

violet in the magic hour
thousand petal lotus flower
in bloom
Track Name: See-Through House
broken string lullaby
injured wing soon to fly
tiny king baby mine

on a sleepless night
under billi lights
whispering hard goodbyes to baby mine

see through house just for now
one more ounce, we'll write it down
and soon we'll bounce baby mine

tear off the tangled leads
forget the abd's
soon we'll leave baby mine

i left your room trailing mom's balloon
i promised you you'd be home soon
such a tiny tug as i stepped outside

i held a broken string
for my tiny king
look the moon's new twin
watch it fly
Track Name: The Black Balloon
the lion laughed with the loons
the funeral flutes joined the bass bassoons
the sky was dark, the moon was new
silence tore a tune in two
too dark to see, too dark to see
the black balloon that carried me
the black balloon that carried me

above the houses and the trees
above a thousand boughs and leaves
above the sounds of empty streets
through towns of people counting sheep
too dark to see, too dark to see
the black balloon that carried me
the black balloon that carried me

the lion laughed with the loons
the violets wore a strange perfume
the sky was dark, the moon was new
i was there, and you were too
too dark to see, too dark to see
the black balloon that carried me
the black balloon that carried me

the black balloon that carried me
