Falling To Pisces

1.
Pull up a cloud and watch the sky explode It’s not a sight you’ll want to miss The silver loom will spin the world around And make it different The saddest eyes I’ve ever seen before Radiate true happiness Will someone tell me why supreme delight Finds us as we fade Oh, yeah, I failed to mention that I’m Dead, but please don’t fear me Just one look and then I’ll go I’m dusting for angels No telling what the world will find And leave behind Now I wonder why the sun is shining We don’t need that spirit here The many splendours of the falling end Bring me happiness So now, I’m dusting for angels The dead will never fear me Just one look and then I’ll go I’m dusting for angels No telling what the world will find And leave behind I’m still dusting for angels The spiritus is near me Just one touch and then you’ll know We’re dusting for angels No telling what the world was meant to find Angel dust Angel dust

Retrograde 04:20
The retrograde is firmly overrated The sun rises above the earth The Dom and sub are finally fornicating The sun and moon are under me Time to live for today Stop painting every rainbow grey Retrograde, retrograde Embrace the earth or blow away
3.
A misted place took so much space In yesterday’s fixation The falling snow is all I know From innocence to aged I embrace the eyes that follow Partly me, partly you Remember when the summer’s end Would bring the sky to weeping Little boy, man in moon Whoever passes first Will leave behind some news to swallow You’re in me, I’m in you Giving up the ghost Giving up the ghost To Madison from Ashland Quite the undertaking You’ll get to know the falling snow The dance of death is quite a show Giving up the ghost With the fear we choose to host I’ll give you just a little dose So that I may keep the most
4.
The mothers are certain That all is well They say it’s a secret So, please don’t tell A dance in the moonlight Is something obscene Absorbing forever The life of a dream Serenity is decay The future’s past be told Surrender is not obligating They know, they know The forest is too silent The air is bleak The mothers of uncertain Tranquility Will feather your secrets And keep them alive Then shelter your children From seeing the light I know what you’re thinking now This tale’s been told The future is past contemplating about I know, I know They know, you know A life takes its leaving As death passes through Say hi to forever We sure will miss you

Permagrin 03:24
Leo rising Feel her sin She is flying Time is thin The sun is shining From within Keep on smiling Permagrin Leo rising The sun is shining A new day is dawning So keep on smiling Keep on A new day dawning From within The fire’s dying On her sin The sun is shining Catch the wind Permagrin Just keep on smiling

Heaven speaks to me In the daylight Darkness whispers free In the moonlight I’m bathed in lavender The purple people treat me fine Bathed in lavender The purple Liquid cleanses me From the outside What will keep me clean On the inside I’m bathed in lavender The purple fills the air tonight Bathed in lavender The purple people treat me fine Step inside Paradise Close your eyes and make some dreams tonight

Recto-Verso 03:59
Bad is good for me It’s pleasure, it’s ecstasy Good is bad for you It’s sadness and misery Take a trip with me Whiskey and the sea Keep away from me I don’t drink, I hate the water Recto-verso whoa-oh Two-sided My machismo whoa-oh Is feminine-fed Keep the scales in line Calibrate the dime The air is where the sky collides Company loves misery So, hide your eyes and smile Let’s get high a while The ride is fine The other side is mine Recto-verso whoa-oh Two-sided My machismo whoa-oh Is feminine-fed Recto-verso whoa-oh Two-sided My machismo grows With feminine head
8.
Full bright, dauber down, words are colours Good thoughts dancing in my dome There’s a fine line between guilt and bliss When you’re born on the second day of Scorpio Ride the cloud, they say that we come from water Stinging is what we do on dry Earth A pill and some swill will fill the bill But, silly smoke is what I need Any given tomorrow Looks better than yesterday The sun shines brighter than sorrow Embrace what’s left of today My head is in the clouds, but I’m tall So, my feet are still on the Earth Mirror opposites and happy accidents Suspend like skyboxes in a default sky
9.
Forevermore 04:02
A cold winter is when you came to be A smile on the seventh day A future for me Fast forward fate to ninety-eight When things became clear Forever is a long time if we’re lucky Forever is a long time if you’re lucky Forever is a long time if I’m lucky Forever, forever is a long time Forever, forever if we’re lucky Forever is a long time if we’re lucky
10.
Dawn dusks midnight, the blue Through tears that fall, rip daylight in two Shrouds of you drift through my tomb Of yesterday’s altered gloom
11.
Yeah, I know, I know, I know Dear, you forgot to kiss me here Roll it down so you’ll hear as I say You cannot get away My lips are on your face
12.
Pisces 03:04
It’s high time to wander To withdraw to the dream It’s my rhyme to ponder My Moon, my sea They say it’s the secret side That hides the key Those rumours of sinking Are drowning me Escaping within my means An unbridled peace I feel like I’m falling to Pisces

about

This is my debut solo album. I played all the parts myself. I’m quite proud of this recording and hope you will enjoy it. This was my zodiac project. Twelve tracks, each representing an astrological sign, starting with Aries and ‘falling’ to Pisces. But, while most people focus on the sun sign (I’m a Scorpio), I wanted to write about the moon sign (I’m a Pisces) because that is our hidden or ’secret’ side.
