Lyrics to all songs on Part Two of Kristoff Krane's new album, Kairos.

AL7ONE

pressed up against the wall

going through withdrawals

down on all fours to evolve  

crawlin' towards the door

door swings open,

feel the wrecking ball

knock off the hinges

stones skip / ripples infinite

torrential downpour,  

for what ?

 

so seeds grow / grow what you reap / eat what we grow

but I heard they use us / who? / people  

to transport em' so their offspring can grow

 

in spring light, sun beams in the summer

heat waves under sheets, flesh sunburnt

cold water flows free from the mountaintops

leaking from the snowcaps melting downwards

 

spiral motion to the mouth of an ocean

where the water runs deep to the middle earth

core heat and the sun from way up

evaporate it and it turns back to vapor

 

storm forming clouds, make ancient faces

rearranging shapes for spaces

till the cold front shows its way in

this friction makes rain thats the language,

of mother nature is awake singing lullabies

babies wobble in the sleep, under blue skies

day dreaming, just being so truthful

just breathing, just being so beautiful

beings so beautiful

 

slow drip / slow drip

raindrop in the chaos

 

oceans upon oceans upon oceans upon oceans

 

senses were deadened from electric fences

dig / down in the trenches

suddenly, different dimensions appear in the distance

pathways are endless,

spasm / sputtering / limitless

lifted like light as it glistens

wipe the scales from my snake eyes and sit patient

divine intervention / breathless / flying free

firing / leave me be / plants are rewiring

 

remembering to listen to my gut

in a new position I can always switch it up

sipping on elixirs that are dripping from above  

give it all I got, only envision I am God  

from the ground to the crown / knee deep in the rush

climbing up the spine / new commitment to the touch

 

do not try to dig it up if it isn't stuck

why we try to dig it up if it isn't stuck ?

 

gold rush / gold rush

 

stone crushed to the finest dust

strike it when its hot

in the zone / iron in my blood / rust

 

made a home no higher up

sitting on the mountainside alone

try to call our bluff

 

ONE

 

tell me whose running this show

tell me whose running this show

 

all one / all one

 

tell me whose running this show

tell me whose running this flow

 

all one

 

slow drip / slow drip

raindrop in the chaos

 

oceans upon oceans upon oceans upon oceans

 

meet me where the stones are smooth

where the waves are thick                             

and the oldest truth is showing through holes in your eyes

 

meet me where the stones are smooth

where the light on the other side

of that black, shines through


Spill

 

momentum / stay still

animal threatened / what am I ill?

electric fences all on my hill

get to the bottom / how did it spill ?

 

to the bottom

how did it spill?

get to the bottom

how did it spill?   

to the bottom

how did it spill?

get to the bottom

 

pressing on just to get beyond

where I'm at on path without stepping on these

ant hills / hammer and anvil

can't chill, pressures on

headed toward that pantheon

knees are weak but my head is strong  

dressed up for that eschaton

in leopard skin tough as teflon

 

cornered a skeleton / peeling the thickest mask back

naked / mirror is smoking  

reflection adjacent / pass that

can't put a finger on it

that edge we're living on it go

bridges are burned

cramps churn in the pit of his stomach

 

did the time

we do it all the time

I did the time

I do It all the time

I did the time

I do It all the time


 

to the bottom

how did it spill?

 

failure is my middle name

build a bed and I'm still awake

tears shed on that pillowcase

pills to swallow and bills to pay

drink tomorrow what we spill today

forever we're see through

we never agreed to

 

feel the pain / build to break

blind / finger on the light switch / killswitch

 

 

fly in outer limits / off the richter / tip the scale

slithering through lava, chipping fossils with a twisted tale

 

heavy metal / straight

swing steady / hit the nail

lift wood / carry pale

no better way to singe a trail

 

splash in a puddle / ripples flowing

fountain at the top   

window open / wind is blowing

all out of liquid / it's scorching hot

 

no more struggle trying to save the day

pitch black knight threw away the cape

its that light we were made to taste  

tunnel vision and it fades away

 

shadows over shoulder

castle walls are closing in

tried to pull the thorn out my side too quick

and I broke the tip

 

sparkin’ flint with mystics / swimming in this hollow vision

sharpen blade of jade

make small incisions

and dissolve the stitches

 

how did it spill?

how did it spill?

how did it spill?


 

stay grounded when I seek a challenge, get

lifted by the eagle talons, yet

keep my balance, step

on a tightrope, eyes closed

light show above the head

 

get to the bottom

how did it spill?

to the bottom

how did it spill?

 

to the bottom

how did it spill?

get to the bottom

how did it spill?

 

to the bottom

how did it spill?

get to the bottom

how did it spill?

 

how did it spill?

how did it spill?


Two Worlds

 

half of me isn't breathing

the other half, human being

falling apart suddenly

coming together seamlessly

 

nail-to-tooth / chewing through the fat of machinery

scratchin' for clean connection / reactivating instinctually

 

collectively / co-mingling of energies

every entity / mimicry

enemy within the imagery / history in the making

needing meaning to be freed from it

scintilla to cinder

still burning bright in the center

that memory is forever

 

move up and down on this vertical axis

cool smooth smile when I murder attachments  

this little instant, eternally massive  

burst into flames to return from the ashes


 

heat burns fear to it's resinous essence

alone / flirting with death / a lover's endless obsession

pleasure seeking flesh

pray for purer intentions  

clearer reflections

stay here / resurrection

 

dragon / fire / naked

on the knees / get higher / take it   

 

on the seafloor we see shore

on the seafloor we see shore

 

go where two worlds meet

walk that middle road slowly, with two bare feet


 

a terror in the veil / dazzlin’

aftermath of volcano

those shadow structures all tangled

they'll scatter in different angles for eons

closed casket / a wake for reborn healer

channel a greater mystery

instrument of infinity / breathe

 

who knows how to tune it before its played ?

the wound is where the gold is and ever bodies in pain

 

dizzy when I chase

thought to stay in the moment

we're spinning in outer space

its fizzling back in focus


 

dragon/ fire naked

on the knees / get higher take it   


 

when did I start believing that its kill or killed

when I first built a cup that could never be filled

divided into tribes, still the village is real  

land-mines / landfills / be still to rebuild

 

mending a broken circle completely when we remember

eating the world that's feeding me

with the need to accept the

realities we have entered

that feeling of now,  forever

scintilla to cinder / how could I forget ?  

 

split

 

dragon/ fire naked

on the knees / get higher take it   

 

go where two worlds meet

walk that middle road slowly, with two bare feet


Sky Gods


 

loose faith / find control in something I can't see

cutting through thick static / feel the savage feel the beat

 

ride it like I need to eat / fuck a saddle

hear that crackle? / battle shadows

wrapped in cammo so their ammo can't see me

 

no, no, no…

 

old tricks for this new dog

so sick I need two Gods

cold chillin' / no ceilin'

bottoms up to that rising sun

 

move beyond the flesh / next level

no next level / just a dead devil and a bent shovel

need a stunt double? I’m, done running / I love trouble

 

I dig holes

you kick rocks

you fall in

you get lost

we find out

they jump in

we climb out

then pick it up


 

what?


 

where we left off

where we left off

where we left off

 

 

muddying the waters so that they appear deep

I'm standing in it now / it barely reaches to my knees

when you're gazing at the ocean you don't talk about the stream

when you're going through the motions it's impossible to be free

 

I see I follow you and I fall asleep

swallow you, I'm all I can be

wide awake / fire under my feet now

blaze a path / no apologies


 

where we left off

where we left off

where we left off

 

 

no enemies outside of me

no longer fighting for peace

surrender /

say something / veins pumping

same blood that we bleed

in between that pain stuck

please center / treasure sunk in our chest

in between that

man-made / caveman

grey matter / brain stem

 

you make rules I break them

you make rules I break them

you make rules I break them

you make rules I break them

 

you

 

we break them you

we break them you


 

a fortress within a prison

a glitch in the system

itchin'

to get with the program

hold hands / cross the bridge / schism

 

a meeting of master minds in the making magic

in taking the time through acts of creating in breaking habits and lies

the art of dying is living in color outside the lines

with perfect aim and an arrow  

the target a mind's eye

 

committed to contradiction

stronger than all existence

a tardigrade on a mission

my function by true design

 

I'm enormous / out of orbit

the corpses of horses beaten lie

dormant / on my doorstep

I'm otus flower unfolding

 

releasing a love for labor

a messenger deemed messiah

my tongue is a faithful razor

my lungs they are made of iron

 

I'm gnawing

clutching for patience to taste it before the morning comes

suddenly drunk on wine of immortals / a cornucopia

down a path of enlightenment littered with broken fragments

I follow my bliss and die for euphoria / kiss the magnet

 

spine of divine operation grows croaked

we're left suspended / still danglin'

naked roots of a family tree resurrected

 

it's through the eyes of an infant I feel the heart of an ancient

there's infinite ways to frame it / they're limitless in arrangement


 

where we left off

where we left off

where we left off


 

a higher climb to the top means a longer fall through the heavens

a higher climb to the top means a longer fall through the heavens

a higher climb to the top means a longer fall through the heavens

a higher climb to the top means a longer fall through the heavens


 

the moment before it hit

when we pick it up where they left it


Sea Spider

 

I am / sitting at the bottom of the ocean 

you tune in / you are now in the presence of the oldest 

prime one / changes are coming

if you wanna make it out of this alive / better focus

breathe / be still. 

 

telepathic tentacles are reaching out / interconnected

color / channel changing / tuning in perception / clean antennas / beam electric

all corners of the earth all conscience beings

tapped into a master mind that's been here since the dawn of time 

 

be still

 

-----

our relatives, came from stars

through a dream / awakened higher states

daughter of an aging son / father of a fading fire 

 

we are…

 

washing over what was choking out

the whole collective psyche

moving through the resurrection

of the soul most likely

cleansed by strikes of the lighting / one eye

 

am, sitting at the bottom of the ocean 

you tune in / you are now in the presence of the oldest 

prime one / changes are coming

if you wanna make it out of this alive / better focus

breathe / be still. 

 

rebuild, like fungus does in a forrest 

root systems run deep in the force of heat 

that comes from the core to the feet

is the beat of the heart of the earth / can't ignore it

 

protect her or get that teller of lies with tales of a fortune

knocking down your door with a tortured look of defeat like an orphan

creep with the peace of a portion

free will lit like torch with the key to the forces

gnosis / garden of eden

plenty for all to eat / streams flow free  

as far as the eye can see, to me, its gorgeous

a fortress for everyone and everything to be supported  

a golden fetus feeds us

 

eight tentacles reaching out / sending messages

to shake the foundation of genetic wounds the residue is

scraped off the walls / broken down to a particle

collapsed by the waves, of the first drop ever

sink 

 

eight tentacles reaching out / sending messages

awaken the senses / telepathic / hear the resonance

anchor connection in the face of the underwater snake

growing wings / sink straight in the medicine

 

try to tell me that I'm 'otta my mind 

try to tell me that I'm 'otta my mind 

 

underwater when I’m ‘otta my mind

outer space when I’m ‘otta my mind

 

it's the only way to be

try not to try 

 

I am / living on the bottom of a ocean 

you tune in / you are now in the presence of the oldest 

prime one / changes are coming

 

underwater / outer space

 

sea spider sees

sea spider sees

sea spider sees

everything

 

sea spider sees

sea spider sees

sea spider sees

everything

 

Chant


Bird Tribe

 

same feather / flock together

incarnating flesh again

 

same feather / flock together

incarnating flesh again


 

ya-hey hey-yo

hey-ya yo-hey

 

ya-hey hey-yo

hey-ya yo-hey


 

finally home again

been on the road my friends

crossed every sea and front line of the war we're in

 

down to the wire / eye of the storm

tending the fire / we are re-born

 

low like water / move in all forms

flow like lava under old sea floors   

bubble like blood under open sore

drip from old sky through eye of the storm

 

thread eye of a needle / weave breathe

detect war / soar high through eyes of an eagle

light strikes / died to my ego so many times

trying to be peaceful

cried for the people

seen through the eyes of a liar

now we reignite that fire thats inside / one tribe

all connected by the web we weave inside our one mind like...


 

I am the day / I am the knight  

shining armor made of light

coming alive

 

bending light / bending light

sending signals to your satellite

hear the battle cries through past lives

every sacrifice that's ever been made

in the name of an after life

got that appetite

no black or white remains, nah

 

look into kaleidoscope / all the colors do collide

into center of a beating heart  / every day and every night

 

every day and every night

every day and every night

 

look me dead in these eyes

 

I'm otta' my mind

I'm otta' my mind

I'm otta' my mind

 

we cannot be destroyed

 

ya-hey hey-yo

hey-ya yo-hey

 

ya-hey hey-yo

hey-ya yo-hey

 

we came back to reclaim our birth rights

aiming at the center of that first light /  first light

 

return of the world-wide universal bird tribe

time served /  time to emerge from the first light

curtain wide open, not the first time / nah

 

mother earth sky

father sun shine

 

unwind come /

one mind / one heart / one spirit / one tribe

one family tree

feel the roots digging deeper

with each season

reaching higher toward the one sky

seen with the one eye

beam like the sunshine


 

let us be reminded that we came in love and silence

and awoke upon this island

then we started feeling separate

slowly we divided over time

were told that heaven is somewhere that is outside us

believed lie and became desperate

 

home is where the heart is

where the heart is where the treasure is

treasure is / treasure it

 

the love we have expansive those devices cannot measure it

fear centered thinking from all sides get the medicine


 

every tree / every flower

every herb bearing seed

every animal, stream

every living being thing

all co-operating in harmony, believe that…

 

we are finally home

 

we are not alone

 

ya-hey hey-yo

hey-ya yo-hey

 

ya-hey hey-yo

hey-ya yo-hey


Nowhere

 

I get it, I get it, I get it, right? / Eye for eye  

everybody’s blind tonight / everybody’s blind tonight

everyone’s getting wet / get with it

 

as above as below / it’s all happening at once

wounded healer detox from the heavy metal dust

scales tipping back to a balanced state

starlight penetrates as the underworld quakes

 

that line

 

can’t hang, don’t try to lift the weight

lightening strikes, eyes blinked awake

idle with the waves / idols get the blade

promise not to take what I won’t give away

 

look up at that sky / look up at that sky

look up at that sky / look up at that sky

 

fly

 

crabs in a bucket are clutchin’ and grabbin’

they’re sucking the fat from the shell when it's cracking

what's poppin' cicada my waves are all theta

the channels is changing, so back up the data

 

lines

 

eyes need to scan

when I see the landscape through a wide angle lens

everything's happening suddenly all at once  

got everything that I need

I'll never know what I want


 

plastic in the veins  

damsel in distress

castle up in flames

candle by the bed

capsule for the pain

wrestle with effects

master and the chain

chapter never ends

 

rewrite

 

familiar taste

warm like the womb

less like the finger

more like the moon

boxed in / in a fox den

with the shaman

preying with the hunter

in the belly beast


 

earth is alive

come back home / we need you our friend

earth is alive

don't  hold out / on you we depend

earth is alive

know where you're going /  nowhere you've been

follow the light

only one that I know

it burns at both ends


 

its all hidden, living under the skin

in the wind you will wither again / the wheels spinning

distilled to pure feeling / the hero and villain within  

zeroed in on a vision and we're in it

 

happens to all of us / leaders turn back into followers

snake eating its tale / giving birth to the seasons

the cycles are happening all at once

final hour / wild flower

tap that root / thats my higher power

cameras in that watchtower

they captured phantoms / they're not ours

 

came to restore the delights of a primal paradise

we are not alone

we wage no war we reign  

when we find the parasite then reclaim the throne

 

this is that new day I say so

these are those new wings of angel

jump back do a pulley on the halo

touch that / erupt every angle

 

in honor of mothers and fathers

we thank sons and the daughters now tending the flame

grandmas and grandpas are watching

they've been here forever / their love is awake

 

we can live in the pit of the pain and still give what we're willing to take

bear witness

big picture / a little insane

dead center / rekindle the flame / revisit


 

earth is alive

come back home / we need you our friend

earth is alive

don't  hold out / on you we depend

earth is alive

know where you're going /  nowhere you've been

follow the light

only one that I know

it burns at both ends

 

planet that we're living on  

not for long if we blow it to oblivion

six billion act like chameleons

check the lineage, living on in our blood

 

no matter who you are, tracks always lead home

to a cave, soil, water, wind, fire and stone,

and a family thats bigger than the bigger picture

in the Mississippi river / shivers in the winter

 

from the middle of the ripples / in the ice that we skate on

pray on / with a deep love from the pm to the am  

on our knees, reaching within for the freedom

locked our our chest are the keys to release it

 

secret seep into the scenery

like, like a beak of phoenix

flying a trillion miles per hour, at the speed of

something I could never put a

definition on, or, wrap my head around

guess its back to the heart

back to solid ground

 

look up at that sky

look up at that sky

look up at that sky

look up at that sky

 

it’s been here and it’s seen every season since the beginning of time

and I’ll never know why if I’m

 

frozen /  dead in the tracks

bed in the snow

naked from head to toe

all is on schedule

nestled all up in the ebb-n-flow

heavenly glow / my memory lies


 

finally remember, they stole it

what it feels like to be home again -  

 

remember, they've never owned it

what it feels like to be home again


 

no where you're going

no where you've been

 

earth is alive

 

to the north

to the south

to the east

to the west


 

what's it feel like?

to be home again

 

no where you're going

know where you've been


Kairos

 

7 stars we came / 7 caves

how do we get home?

through the flames

 

7 stars we dream / 7 caves

how do we get home?

through the wake

 

didn't know what to do

didn't know when to stop  

gotta lie with the truth

to find your way to the top

 

holy mountains /  a pawn

hit bottom become king

they will show you their Gods

it's bow or bend at the knees

 

with these arrows in the quiver

aim to take shots from the heart

hit the light from which we came

to turn the cinder back to  spark

 

apart from selfless offerings made for self control

I must be emptied, cleaned and dried just like a cup before its full

 

will power of position third eye / pyramids in my skull

forrest fires along the path/ fetching water  from the wishing well

 

quilt cut from same cloth  / mangled up by the wind

all tangled / electric fence / hard to say when will it end

 

start with every eye of the needle thats been blinded by the thread

there's a story to be seen within the lines of every stitch

 

this language isn't mine

my lips are sealed, my tounge is tied in knots

admit it isn't real the more I sit in silence and watch it unfold

 

or like a blind man thrash in the night

talking in code / bare naked / cold / walking on coals like

 

to make an offering to an alter state of consciousness

etchings along the walls/ all fallen Gods anonymous

 

fight, flight, or forfeit to the bottomless pit

torch lit / how to honor it?

I don't exist


 

 

7 stars 7 caves / blaze

who we are

unscathed / unfazed / blaze

who we are


 

they told me fates are intertwined interwoven golden ratio

equates to divine design / they've left us signs along the way to know

 

a peaceful state of mind

defying space and time to align with

creator's eye of beholder

is serpentine and I'm blinded

 

circle found in fertile ground

is spinning round eternally

we've heard the sound

its breaking through  

a primal surge resurfacing

a seed that turns into a tree

burning twisted circuitry  

one heart thats beating perfectly

was worth the wait emerging free  

 

7 stars 7 caves / blaze

who we are

unscathed / unfazed / blaze

who we are

 

unscathed

blaze / who we are

 

shooting stars

 

unscathed

blaze / who we are

 

we are the water, not the wave

we are the water

we are the water, not the wave

 

7 stars we dream / 7 caves

how do we get home?

through the waves

 

7 stars we came / 7 caves

how do we get home?

through the flames

 

7 stars

7 caves
