Endless Forms Most Beautiful

  • Shudder Before the Beautiful

    The deepest solace lies in understanding,
    This ancient unseen stream,
    A shudder before the beautiful

    Awake, oceanborn
    Behold this force
    Bring the outside in
    Explode the self to epiphany

    The very core of life
    The soaring high of truth and light

    The music of this awe
    Deep silence between the notes
    Deafens me with endless love
    This vagrant Island Earth
    A pilgrim shining bright
    We are shuddering before the beautiful
    Before the plentiful
    We, the voyagers

    Tales from the seas
    Cathedral of green

    The unknown, the grand show, the choir of the stars
    Interstellar theatre play, the nebulae curtain falls
    Imagination, evolution, a species from the vale
    Walks in wonder in search of the source of the tale

  • Weak Fantasy

    These stories given to us all
    Are filled with sacrifice and robes of lust
    Dissonant choirs and downcast eyes
    Selfhood of a condescending ape

    Behold the crown of a heavenly spy
    Forged in blood of those who defy
    Kiss the ring, praise and sing
    He loves you dwelling in fear and sin

    Fear is a choice you embrace

    Your only truth
    Tribal poetry
    Witchcraft filling your void
    Lust for fantasy
    Male necrocracy
    Every child worthy of a better tale

    Pick your author from à la carte fantasy
    Filled with suffering and slavery
    You live only for the days to come
    Shoveling trash of the upper caste

    Smiling mouth in a rotting head
    Sucking dry the teat of the scared
    A storytelling breed we are
    A starving crew with show-off toys

    Fear is a choice you embrace

    From words into war of the worlds
    This one we forsake with scorn
    From lies the strength of our love
    Mother’s milk laced with poison for this newborn

    Wake up child, I have a story to tell
    Once upon a time

  • 03 Élan
    Lyrics4:47
    Élan

    Leave the sleep and let the springtime talk
    In tongues from the time before man
    Listen to a daffodil tell her tale
    Let the guest in, walk out, be the first to greet the morn

    The meadows of heaven await harvest
    The cliffs unjumped, cold waters untouched
    The elsewhere creatures yet unseen
    Finally your number came up, free fall awaits the brave

    Come
    Taste the wine
    Race the blind
    They will guide you from the light
    Writing noughts till the end of time
    Come
    Surf the clouds
    Race the dark
    It feeds from the runs undone
    Meet me where the cliff greets the sea

    The answer to the riddle before your eyes
    Is in dead leaves and fleeting skies
    Returning swans and sedulous mice
    Writings on the gardens book, in the minute of a lover’s look

    Building a sandcastle close to the shore
    A house of cards from a worn out deck

    A home from the fellowship, poise and calm

    Write a lyric for the song only you can understand

    Riding hard every shooting star
    Come to life, open mind, have a laugh at the orthodox
    Come, drink deep let the dam of mind seep
    Travel with great élan, dance a jig at the funeral

    Come!

  • Your Is an Empty Hope

    Tear me to bits enjoy the scene
    Of screen name verbal vanity
    Churning the words imbued in filth
    Your tongue oily water under my bridge

    You have the world, it’s all for you
    I wish you’d find the lost in you
    Grateful for the pain, it proves we’re alive
    Can you feel it

    I can’t make you want the truth
    It’s up to you

    Yours is an empty hope
    Yours is an empty hope

    Feed me to pigs in your fantasies
    Your sea roars bitter elegies
    Like Narcissus who bribes the pool
    A hollow voice, ruin with a roof

    Stop! Life is now, still all for you
    Turn from the hate, turn from the smoke
    I see the parchment of your soul
    The notes, the song
    Join your voice

    I can let you have the world
    It’s all for you

    Yours is an empty hope
    Yours is an empty hope

  • Our Decades In the Sun

    I climbed off your back
    Not so long ago
    To a blooming meadow
    To a path you’d made for the lightest feet

    Mother
    I am always close to you
    I will be waving every time you leave
    Oh, I am you
    The care, the love, the memories
    We are the story of one

    Father
    I am always close to you
    I will be waving every time you leave
    Oh, I am you
    The care, the love, the memories
    You are forever in me

    This verse we wrote
    On a road home
    For you

    All this for you

    Our walk has been sublime
    A soaring ride and gentle lead
    You have the heart of a true friend
    One day we’ll meet on that shore again

  • 06 My Walden
    Lyrics4:39
    My Walden

    Sain y niwl,
    Gaunt y goydwig fwsog,
    Gwenithfaen, cen y coed, a'r lleuad,
    Un gway f'adenydd I dapestri bywyd

    Light shines bright beyond all the cities of gold
    On a road of birdsong and chocolate shops
    Of buskers, jugglers, innkeeper`s welcoming call
    The sound of mist, smell of moss-grown woods

    Weaving my wings from many-colored yarns
    Flying higher, higher, higher
    Into the wild
    Weaving my world into tapestry of life
    Its fire golden

    In my Walden

    I will taste the manna in every tree
    Liquid honey and wine from the distant hills
    An early morning greenwood concerto
    Greets my Walden with its eternal voice

    I do not wish to evade the world
    Yet I will forever build my own
    Forever build my own
    Forever my home

  • Endless Forms Most Beautiful

    Come on, hop on, let’s take a ride
    Come and meet the travelers who came to town
    They have a tale from the past to tell
    From the great dark between the stars

    We are a special speck of dust
    A fleeting moment on an ark
    A celebration, A resthaven
    Of life

    Lay on a field of green
    With mother Eve
    With father pine reaching high
    Look at yourself in the eyes of aye-aye
    Unfolding rendezvous

    Deep into the past
    Follow the aeon path
    Greet a blade of grass
    Every endless form most beautiful
    Alive, aware, in awe
    Before the grandeur of it all
    Our floating pale blue ark
    Of endless forms most beautiful

    Beyond aeons we take a ride
    Welcoming the shrew that survived
    To see the Tiktaalik take her first walk
    Witness the birth of flight

    Deeper down in Panthalassa
    A eukaryote finds her way
    We return to the very first one
    Greet the one we’ll soon become

  • 08 Edema Ruh
    Lyrics5:16
    Edema Ruh

    One by one we light the candles of this show
    One by one, enter the theatre of the primal birth
    Silently watch the planetary curtain go down
    Laugh and rejoice, as the powerful play greets you tonight

    We are the Edema Ruh
    We know the songs the sirens sang
    See us dream every tale true
    The verse we leave with you will take you home

    We’ll give you a key to open all of the gates
    We’ll show you a sea of starlight to drown all your cares
    Mirrorhouses, the sweetest kisses and wines
    A Debussy dialogue between wind and the roaring sea

    Dance to the whistle, to the play, to the story
    To infinite encores
    Laugh at the royalty with sad crowns
    And repeat the chorus once more

  • 09 Alpenglow
    Lyrics4:49
    Alpenglow

    Once upon a time a song was heard
    Giving birth to a child of earth and verse

    Together we slay another fright
    Every Jubjub bird, spooks of the past
    Close your eyes and take a peek
    The truth is easy to see

    We were here
    Roaming on the endless prairie
    Writing an endless story
    Building a Walden of our own
    We were here
    Grieving the saddened faces
    Conquering the darkest places
    Time to rest now and to finish the show
    And become the Music, one with alpenglow

    Hand in hand guiding me into light
    You, the fairytale guise in blue and white

    You are my path my home my star
    A beautiful tale within the tale
    And when the dust needs to move on
    I will tuck us in on a bed of snow
    Painting white, silencing the valley we built
    Together we’ll sleep
    Devoured by Life

  • The Greatest Show on Earth

    1.) Four Point Six

    Archaean horizon
    The first sunrise
    On a pristine Gaea
    Opus perfectum
    Somewhere there, us sleeping

    2.) Life

    The cosmic law of gravity
    Pulled the newborns around a fire
    A careless, cold infinity in every vast direction
    Lonely farer in the Goldilocks zone
    She has a tale to tell
    From the stellar nursery into a carbon feast
    Enter LUCA

    The tapestry of chemistry
    There’s a writing in the garden
    Leading us to the Mother of all

    We are one
    We are a universe
    Forbears of what will be
    Scions of the Devonian sea
    Aeons pass
    Writing the tale of us all
    A day-to-day new opening
    For the greatest show on Earth

    Ion channels welcoming the outside world
    To the stuff of stars
    Bedding the tree of a biological holy
    Enter life

    We are here to care for the garden
    The wonder of birth
    Of every form most beautiful

    3.) The Toolmaker

    After a billion years
    The show is still here
    Not a single one of your fathers died young
    The handy travelers
    Out of Africa
    Little Lucy of the Afar

    Gave birth to fantasy
    To idolatry
    To self-destructive weaponry
    Enter the god of gaps
    Deep within the past
    Atavistic dread of the hunted

    Enter Ionia, the cradle of thought
    The architecture of understanding
    The human lust to feel so exceptional
    To rule the Earth

    Hunger for shiny rocks
    For giant mushroom clouds
    The will to do just as you’d be done by
    Enter history, the grand finale
    Enter Ratkind

    Man, he took his time in the sun
    Had a dream to understand
    A single grain of sand
    He gave birth to poetry
    But one day’ll cease to be
    Greet the last light of the library

    We were here!
    We were here!
    We were here!
    We were here!

    4.) The Understanding

    5.) Sea-Worn Driftwood

  • 12 Sagan
    Lyrics4:46
    Sagan

    Make me wonder
    Make me understand
    Spark the light of doubt and a newborn mind
    Bring the vast unthinkable down to earth

    Always wary of a captive thought
    Beware the very first unkind word
    See who you are, where from, what of

    Entering the unknown
    Sending all the poets to the stars
    Daring to see beyond the manmade
    Woe to you who evade the horizon
    Listening to Sagan
    Dreaming Carl Sagan
    Unseen streams
    With understanding no poet is trapped
    Woe to all who stop at the horizon

    What kind of world would we call home
    Our own
    Oasis of love, humility and hope
    Eradicating all that`s not for life

    What kind of aim would we call high
    What kind of life would bathe in the brightest white
    A limitless world will rise
    Son of man, dare to let go of the cowardice
