    All proceeds go directly to the artist. (Bandcamp takes a slight cut for hosting the website - hey they deserve it.) Anything over and above the costs listed (you can choose the amount you wish to pay above the minimum) will be donated to an animal rights organization / sanctuary. Please consider a vegan lifestyle.

    I have no desire to make a profit from sales here. My costs are covered and what really matters is that by making a purchase you are supporting two great causes - a local artist and animals.

    Immediate download of 12 track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire. Album art and individual track art is included. All music, art and lyrics can be downloaded straight to your IPhone as well.

    This entire album is available for download for just $5. Why so inexpensive? I'd rather it be in your record collection that out here in cyberspace. Plus - it is an experiment of sorts. I had so much fun recording this stuff - it'd be criminal to overcharge for it.

    Peace.

Track Name: Invocation
Time
I absolve myself from your vow to vanquish me
Fire
I’m ablaze with the darkness of my destiny
Song
You’re a ghost who thinks she’s tapped into mortality
But it’s gone – it is lost
And Life
You’re the lie that the guilt of sin has banished from eternity
Broken lock and key

Bound
In the circle of the cross in which I summon thee
With this Earth
Blood and ashes draw the lines that call you forth to me
Light
I implore you to shine down on these mysteries
Before they’re smoke – and they’re gone
We are lost
In passageways, blindly searching on our hands and knees
And to these doors there is no lock and key
Track Name: Mercurial
When the fear that molds you
Finally melts away
A supernova light from within
Been bent across the anvil
Forged into complacency
And Death is warden in the prison of our skin

A higher consciousness rising out
Of your dormant bliss
It’s not a game it’s a state of chance
A card you never played
Mind and body pulsing harmony
A sound that resonates
All the notes you thought were out of reach

A world that grinds you down
Your edge dulled by the wheel
Escape – return to the sea from whence you came
Into this weak and idle theme
No more yielding, it’s but a dream
Mercurial and fleeting

And all the signs that spin their lies and myths
They don’t matter any more
When you see the pieces fall in place
The riddles solved the puzzles fall
Into the void of what is left
Thoughts that held you back have all been laid to waste
They’ve been erased
