about

1. I Am Flabergast

(FLABERGAST VOICE)

I am Flabergast
I am nothing and everything
By saying nothing I say everything

——

2. The Connection

This is the new connection
Be ready to materialize
It’s hard to picture in your mind’s eye
Be ready to materialize

I won’t try to deny it
It’s wonderful to be here
Source of inspiration
Thought perspiration
Be ready to materialize

It’s making me feel things
I never dreamed about
Into existence
Without resistance

To the one who melted the screen
Of a smaller universe
The only connection
I see in the sky
I'm ready to materialize

It’s powering up
Covalent bond
Coming back to life
Although the shape of things will be
Changing forever
Forever and ever
Accept, Relax, and Flow

It’s making me feel things
I never dreamed about
Into existence,
Without resistance

——

3. The Wonder

Today I woke up
Feeling a little crazy
Were you real
Or just my imagination

Playing tricks on me
Tricks on me
Making me see
Making me see

Wonderful being
Where have you been
All my life
Other than skin
I haven’t seen
Who you are
Tell me your story
I’m ready to fly
Far beyond the places
Where our dreams
Live their lives.

——

4. Gum

Nobody taught me
How to do it
From this position
Stepped on you
A quarter past
The silver linings appeared

Don't tell me
We don't fit
I can feel the magnetism

You are the gum on my shoe
But we both know I mean my heart
I thought it would be easier
But I wasn't very smart

I can't remember when you got
Stuck between my lungs
You weight so much
It's getting harder
For me to breathe

Wait a minute,

I am breathing
I am vertical
I am feeling
What can be cooler than this?

You are the gum on my shoe
But we both know I mean my heart
Make yourself comfortable
I won't keep fighting you, I won't

You are the gum on my shoe
Yeah I know, you knew it from the start
My love is unconditional
I am ready to talk to you
I am ready to talk to you
I am ready to talk to you
I am ready
I am ready
I am
I

——

5. Forget (Interlude)

I forgot regret in a cool wash of black air
Where the birds mourned in the darkness
The most beautiful silence never heard
Brushed my cheek like your hesitant kisses
I bit my fingernails off in the shadows
Cause the depth made me feel a bit nervous
I coughed and coughed it all up
Til' the bluebird in my lungs had a screw loose

He sang mostly i suppose in the sunshine
I sang mostly I feel sorrow in the moonlight
I'd split the seams on barbed wire when I looked the wrong way
But I'm waiting for tomorrow with this tune, right?
Moon shadows in the evening
Sunbeams through the starlight
I hid out waiting for the next chapter, read ahead
And only met a humbling sorta twilight

Sometimes i miss you though i haven't found a need to
But you don't care about that do you?

Sometimes i miss you though i haven't found a need to
But you don't care about that


I forgot regret in a cool wash of black air
Where the birds mourned in the darkness
The most beautiful silence never heard
Brushed my cheek like your hesitant kisses
I bit my fingernails off in the shadows
Cause the depth made me feel a bit nervous
I coughed and coughed it all up
Til' the bluebird in my lungs had a screw loose

Nobody taught me how to do it
From this position
Nobody taught me how to forget
Sweet magnetism
Nobody taught me how to sing it
This inquisition
Nobody taught me how to breathe in
When it's this silent

Sometimes i miss you though i haven't found a need to
But you don't care about that do you?

Sometimes i miss you though i haven't found a need to
But you don't care about that

6. I Don’t Mind

Everyone one way or another is beautiful
I tell you this with all my heart and my soul
I care for the character not for the actor

After taking a peek
Into your mind
As digressing as can be
I really don’t mind
The way I see it
Beautiful is easy to find
Oh, I really don’t mind

(I thought I would)

The only way for us to survive
Is to breath in with the flow
And inward you go

At ease with all that is
The world presents us
The stones in our pockets
The bones in their sockets
Radiate the direction

After taking a peek
Into your mind
As digressing as can be
I really don’t mind
The way I see it
Beautiful is easy to find
Oh, I really don’t mind

——

7. Smoke Machines

Do you like this
More than peanut butter?
Do you need it now
It’s never over

It drags you out
Throws you in the cold at night
Slowly you become this thing,
Fire breathing

Making a scene
The smoke machines are back
Smiling despondency
Their pose will never crack

Did you enjoy that
Less than before?
I got news for you
It's not gonna get better
Until you turn it off
And inhale clearly

Making a scene
The smoke machines are back
Don’t let them drag you in
Their fumes will hold you back

Making a scene
The smoke machines are back
Smiling despondency
Their pose will never ever crack

——

8. Darkness Wars (Interlude)

——

9. Little One

Look closer
And behold
The I behind the I
Listen to the little one
He holds truth
Whispering

Don’t mistake the map for the territory
What's at stake is no less
Than your own story
The choice is yours
Let go, let it go
To let go of control!

Like islands
In the bedrock
Of the ocean

We are one
We are one
So once again
As the small one said

Don’t mistake the map for the territory
What's at stake is no less than
Than your own unique story
The choice is yours
Let go, let it go
To let go of control!

—--

10. Blanket Thing

Fading to black
Dissolving within
You've got no time
To deal with your infinity

Because you gotta piece together this theory
Keep this glass between us so you can’t feel
The dark night of the soul is over
You will come to see when you’re older
The wonders of the blanket thing

Fading to white
Becoming something else within
You made some time
To find out how you feel now

There's no need for greed or jealousy
Nothing in this world belongs to me
I couldn’t see!

Because I had to piece together this theory
Break this glass between us so you can feel again
The dark night of the soul is over
You will come to see when you’re older
The wonders of the blanket thing

-----

11. Darkness

You say:
“There is a darkness inside me”
Believe that ruin makes up your trail
Floating your direction

They sing
Nefarious tales of you
About all the things that you used to do
Looking your direction

I can’t see
All the things you’re telling me
All those things I cannot see

Your soul,
Is made of that which it loves
A blueprint sent from above

The grooves you breath
Murmur in disguise
"Shadow work”
Will make you feel
Will help you deal
With who you are

I can’t see
All the things you’re telling me
All those things I cannot see
All the things you’re telling
All those things I cannot see

——

12. Accept, Relax, and Flow (Interlude)

——

13. Forget

You got something to say to me, I know
Right beneath your tongue
But silence is all around

They got nothing to say it’s clear to me
With their indelicate ways
Swaying you with fiction
Spiraling you down
Below the waist
I see a way
You have to

Forget me
And make friends
With the motions
Inside your head
Loosen your sail
Embrace the fear
Strength lulls within it

I hold nothing as dear as you today
Underneath the sun
You’re not like everyone else

My love is not cutting through to you, this way
Miscommunication
Is causing so much tension

If your heart could talk
Would it speak with freedom?
Soften up
Soften up
And take a chance

Forget me
And make friends
With the motions
Inside your head
Loosen your sail
Embrace the fear
Strength lulls within it

Forget me
Forget me
Forget me
Forget me

Forget me
Forget me
Forget me
Forget

——

14. The Calling

We are sailing
Sailing somewhere
We are people
Reflections pointblank
The seas that once kept us apart
Come together in this place

To recognize
Your uniqueness
Your uniqueness
Our sameness

The universe is calling
For a cosmic reunion
Sometimes I feel like
Falling asleep
To only wake up when you come back to me.

We are halfway
Away from our homes
Kids in spirit,
Unwilling to grow old
The seas that once kept us apart
Overflowing in this place

Expanding
Into the great unknown,
We’ll never be alone again,
Our time is yet to come my friend,

The universe is calling
For a cosmic reunion
Sometimes I feel like
Falling asleep
Falling asleep
To only wake up when you come back to me.

——

15. Be Soft (Exilude)

(FLABERGAST VOICE)

"Be soft.
Do not let the world make you hard.
Do not let pain make you hate.
Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.
Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree,
you still believe it to be a beautiful place."

- Kurt Vonnegut

——

16. The Chell Song

This is a song
For a special someone
Have they already told you?

I’m so very glad
For being alive
I'm ready to get to know you

Despite of the distance
That caused some resistance
I mean it when I say

There's no limitation
For my imagination
And you is all I need
