about

''Step down on the sand...The lizard crosses the path, a coconut falls. It lands very close and rolls away. A warm wind blows through the palms. A wave casts vibrations throwing some polished colored stones; a feeling through the sand contacting the foot through a hole in the leather sole of a slim black shoe. Looking down, the tropical sun glimmers in spots playing upon the surface of newly shined leather. There are many dull patches where the polished skin is too worn. The stones make sunny metallic sounds as the wave recedes. A white hand picks some up and rolls them between the fingers, then drops them into some water moving out from the river mouth. Sea foam collects in the roots of the mangroves. Stones make hollow sounds contacting the clusters of drift wood. Suddenly the body is stung by a swarm of tiny strange insects. Then a metallic solar buzzing. A dog bat flies over head trailing beneath it a gigantic shadow. Then a pulsating cymbal drone thinking briefly of tourism and plastic economies; colorful trinkets sold to western people like the glass beads the spanish used to trade with the indians. Colorful plastic soon to replace ivory. Some green fish are beneath the surface of the clear brackish water thinking of a tribal performance where the dancers jump up and down with bare feet on broken china. It makes a sound like pieces of broken shell inside a huge rattle, to the rhythm of gongs and hi pitched bamboo reed instruments. A small dark skinned child carves a pineapple in a spiraling star shape thinking of the awkward turtle like appearance of the backpack laden tourists that prefer to call themselves travelers, being harassed by taxi drivers. Trashed flip flops imbedded in the dirt road. Dreams like exotic birds fluttering through an inner dimension. Illusions created through exotic imagery, half baked hopes. Frustrated reality, a mutated version of the exotic illusion. Shards of screen put together transforming the present. A quetzacoatl half man half multi colored bird.''

Track Name: Sick Rose
''O Rose thou art sick.
The invisible worm,
That flies in the night
In the howling storm:
Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.'' - William Blake

These hanging vines
Get in my way
You could be mine
Because I say
Moving through this green plane
Some would say
Not green earth
But green hell!
My view is suspended
I just can't tell...
Track Name: Daydream Like Anaïs
When you throw me in the air
Love is spinning everywhere
When you throw me in the air
Love is spinning everywhere

When you throw me in the air
Love is spinning everywhere
When you throw me in the air
Love is spinning everywhere

When you throw me in the air
Love is spinning everywhere
When you throw me in the air
Love is spinning everywhere

Business man on vacation
Flying first class mojito
Bikini atoll
At the push of a button
Casinos and prostitution
The Queen of hearts
A stagnant swamp
Sensuality enslaved

Escaping from freedom
Life at the helm
Life’s floating away
A child's life
Listen to sea shell
If you forget
Children are stolen
Out of control

‘Saulės vaikai
Ateikit pas mane
Ateikit pas mane
Ateikit pas mane…’
