Lyrics
The cycle comes
around again
brings me back
to where I am

Flames burn cold,
fires fade
voices speak
I don’t understand


Tell me
tell me
tell me
who I am

I don’t understand

The world fades

I don’t understand


Fading light
draws me in
reaching out


solitude
surrounds

stars shine
through me

longing
for meaning

hoping
For light

Hoping

Pushing

Hoping

Pushing


Transformations
mind and body

fluxuations
heart and soul

they come around
they come around
they come around
they come around

Fabrications
shield my eyes

variations
close my ears

they come around
they come around
they come around
they come around

and I don’t understand

All's right with the world. Tokai and his magic music machine has returned. Atmosphere. Nothing like it. Something in here reminds me of BillyK --- and carbon --- a little doc elvis, too. Hmmm, well --- I don't understand. The mysterious Abraxas --- fantastic work. Bent Axis is totally bent. Great collab. Welcome back Steve, and what an excellent re-entry.

takes me there
to the entrance of the mysterious celestial temple and into the darkness. blindly groping for answers, tirelessly searching for meaning... utterly lost. perhaps we weren't meant to understand.

a heady, psychedelic voyage into the unknown. d/l taken for future journeys. great work by all. welcome back steve!

this is crazy cool. as soon as i saw a song from steve i was there - but THIS delivered even more than i'd expected. spooky, high tension, and i'm going to be feeling a bit paranoid today i think. so SO creative, this is a time when the lyrics truly fit the music. congrats to all three of you - hope to hear more from this trio!

Psychedelic, certainly! But heavy too! In all the right ways! Love that throbbing bass and killer guitar tones and textures!

I agree with the others on the Floyd reference. I like the lyric which seems to have to do with death and rebirth. The trippy backer is fully capable of expressing such an esoteric topic. Well done!

This is a great push of boundaries into a fuse of genres. I hear the electronic, some drum n bass, some rock, and who knows what.

A most intriguing and power laden soundscape,
I'm really lovin' the tiny splashes of color and the tunnels in the transitions...like wormholes to other times and dimensions, real warp drive in use here...Big Smile City earcandy 4sure..:):):)peace

A great trio here... TokBentAbraxas... the music, sounds, lyrics, singing, all descend and create a hazy uneasy feeling of being lost. Very well portrayed soundscape. But what else would you expect from these three masters?
ttfn,
