Smooth Ride Lyrics and Meaning

Smooth Ride

All that surrounds me is beauty to infinity
When things get rough just look up
Heaven revealed

Lets all ride this cosmic shift smoothly into paradise

If you need to cry let tears flow from your eyes
As you pass sadness by
If pain comes your way
Let it fade
Leave suffering behind

Let’s all ride this cosmic shift smoothly into paradise

When things start to change, rearrange
No need to feel strange
Light and dark unite
As love gives flight
To higher planes

Let’s all ride this cosmic shift smoothly into paradise

This song is about facing spiritual evolution with strength and love rather than fear. This can be a worldwide evolution or a personal one, and there is not much distinction here anyway. When we learn and experience new things, when we grow, it can be frightening because we are entering unknown territory.. however, giving into this fear will only hold you back. I see and know and feel with my heart and soul that paradise is attainable for everyone. When you can let go of fear, paradise reveals itself to you. It was there all the time but fear was clouding your perception. All we need is that little shift out of fear and we are already in paradise. This song is also about surrender and no resistance. If we can  become non-resistant, than suffering flows right through us. Resistance and fear can magnify each other, lets instead surrender to paradise.

Inverted Image lyrics and meaning

Inverted Image

Sweetheart where are the lips
I miss and long to kiss
The corners of which
Turned up so slightly in bliss
Make all else cease to exist

My thoughts drift off to you
I can’t keep them tethered to me
Are you lonely
Or are you relieved
Or are you just as confused as me

As I lay down to sleep tonight
You’re no longer by my side
I long for your tender touch
And fall through the space that once was us

My love where is your love
 I wish we had found it
It’s locked in the dark
Behind a gruesome guard
I don’t envy your journey best wishes

Even if you asked me
Though I know you won’t
I wouldn’t go back there
To that place we both shared
That beautiful lake in which we were both drowning

Flowers whose beauty unsurpassed
Are many things as they float past
The water’s a crystal hue
Of emerald and blue
A resplendent mirror
So silken to feel
Draped in tall trees
And drowned in joy’s tears
Each drop sings a song
Through birds that belong
To beings with on knowledge of right and wrong
So maybe I like to go
Back there sometimes
But only in sleep
When in dreams I reside
To soak in the magic
That we once made
To hold onto something
Before it fades

This is a heartbreak song. About the feelings and emotions I went through after having to leave someone that was an important part of my life who I loved very much. Probably many other people have experienced the same thing..having to get used to sleeping alone..wondering how the other person is handling it..wishing and wondering how you could have made it work. But even though it’s hard to leave that time behind, there is usually a good reason why it had to end. The end of the song gives homage to what I believe to have been a beautiful love, but at the same time I recognize it was not one that could have lasted very long. So it’s a sort of eulogistic farewell.

Uncoiled lyrics and meaning


Uncoil me

Turning around
Uncoil me

Open portals
I see
in time
uncoil me

take me home
to the misty gardens
to the source
all is one is all

dead skin
so raw
to love
uncoil me

this song is about when you realize something that’s been holding you back from flourishing in your full potential. You recognize this thing and you are able to shed it from your life, getting back to or closer to your true self. Uncoiling yourself from the things that are trying to choke you or oppress you, so you are free to shine in your ultimate and full being.

Cyborg Sweetie lyrics and meaning


They say ours is a love so unnatural
My cyborg sweetie, look at me, I don’t believe them
How could this feeling be wrong
My cyborg sweetie, walk with me, but im afraid it wont be for long

Oh I cant live without your titanium touch
To lose your techno love would hurt me so much

Breakdown (from p.o.v. of CS)
I might be metal made
So what your carbon based
I don’t care what the say
I still love you babe
You set my hard drive spinning
Yeah you crash my system
My main frame..your soul
Together, eternal

cyborg sweetie is set in a post-apocalyptic police state with mutants, rebels, and a plethora of technological experiments. the police state and all the normals are desperately clinging to some definition of humanity by trying to oppress all the new life forms and humanoids hanging around. co-mingling between humans and these "others" is especially forbidden. but the rebels are looking to embrace the new world and move with the flow of evolution. they believe true humanity lies in love, not biology. this song follows the story of star-crossed lovers: a human rebel and a cyborg, and expresses their feelings despite all the opposition. though its rather tongue in cheek, it's really meant to address all forbidden love. That can be the kind that comes up against society and government, or even the restrictions we place on love in general, making it taboo in and of itself. Let the infinite source of love flow free into this world in any shape or form!

WGTKY lyrics and meaning


I don’t really know you boy
You don’t really know me
I seen you around a couple times
I think you seen me
And in the absence of truth ive built a fantasy
Can you live up to it
I hope you get the chance honey

Some force is pulling you into my line of sight
Thought you aint my friend but your just my type
When will you put me out of my misery
Come closer baby, get close to me

I wanna get to know you boy
Wont you let me get to know you
I wanna get to know you girl
Wont you let me get to know you…

Oh wont you burn my soul with your eyes
Come on and call me up invest a dime
When will you touch your lips to mine
I cant wait no more
Im going out of my mind



This song is initially just about crushing on someone. Its about lust and desire and fantasy. But it also asks to get past the fantasy, to get closer to that person, for that physical connection outside the ghost persona. Look into me with your to me..touch your lips to mine. Let’s connect for real. What are the things that cause us to be drawn to certain people, without maybe even ever meeting them ? many times infatuations arise even more when we don’t actually know that person because we use them as a symbol of all of our own desires. Its not even about that person anymore it becomes about getting closer to and understanding our own yearnings. Its meaningful to explore these things…I learned that my own desires were wrapped up in some aspects of myself that I wanted to grow out of. I wanted ‘a freak like me’ I didn’t have to feel so alone. But once I began to transform the idea of alien and see it represent a unity with all things, I didn’t need this counterpart so much any more. I made more room for relationships to come into my life that are more real, that I don’t need to elaborate into fantasies, and that help me to expand beyond myself.
