Track Name: Beta Clifford
Instant arrow, soothing brain
Make water,
Get water.
Track Name: Torus Slide
Infinitas percepciones,
subconsciente colectivo,
acompaña este intermedio.

En tus ojos, geometría,
ciencia exacta, nutritiva.

Long how long with you.
Blunt how long,
to stay with you alone.
Track Name: AcidLord/Coffee Enthusiast
Make more coffee ten times a day
tell you, tell you
gonna take it with a sugar
and ten cubes of acid.


Taking coffee twenty times a day
with a spoon of honey/dash of sugar.
Taking coffee thirty times a day
with a spoon of magic acid.

Like a cup of burning sugar.
Track Name: Turquoise
High noon, morphs into
a turquoise stone,
then coils upside down.

To tame all magnetic flow,
deep with all the rocks that form
the ocean floor.

Open mind, rewired brain
deep extensions of sweet fading contemplation
to tame the magnetic flow deep with all the rocks
that form the ocean floor.

But then I start feeling thirst
after all the metallic taste...........Blow
Track Name: Spring Of Ethers
Outlived by the self.

Slowly pulled, slowly centered,
relative mother of limited things.
Slowly pulled, slowly centered,
relative matter of infinite themes.

Secure it, for I'll never say
Track Name: Pollution
Sed, no doy, health is privatized
yet I gave you a lot.

Cash for gold, food is poison now
still I gave you (I gave you) a lot.

For melting caps and acid rain
for oil spills and contra raids.

I hated you a lot.

Owl face in our face,
Owl phase in our face,
Owl face in our face,
Our phase in our face...
Track Name: Weird Cults
If we reached some common ground
we could build a massive sphere
and go, so slow, mighty slow, oh so slow.

Reminiscent of a past,
when we used to hide and seek
and love,

I'll go soft, oh go so slow, and move so slow, I'll go so slow
(Leave it open, leave it free)

And caress you with the gentle breeze over the mist.
Oh come here, stay please
a quiet place where we can feed our weird cults.
