Track Name: Holy Shit
the surface of the earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean on this shore we've learned most of what we know, recently we have waded a little way out maybe ankle deep and the water seems inviting some part of our being knows this is where we came from we long to return and we can because the cosmos is also within us we are made of star stuff we are a way for the cosmos to know itself the journey for each of us begins here we are going to explore the cosmos in a ship of the imagination unfettered by ordinary limits on speed and size drawn by the music of cosmic harmonies it can take us anywhere in space and time

the roots collect nutrients the leaves collect light these plants connect the ground to the sky and breed life now that's holy, now that's holy.

to all the cities children that have never seen the stars get inside a car and drive however far, cause you've missed a part of life that you really oughtta know, and after you're exposed it won't do anything but grow, to all the desert dwellers who have never seen the ocean find whatever coast you can reach and soak your soul in I really can't describe it it's the purest of emotions I've never met my god but in that water I approached him to all the country folks that've never seen the city those lights are more than pretty they're a sign of things to come so if only for a day find the time to get away and stand amongst the giants that we've built with love and guns

the roots collect nutrients the leaves collect light these plants connect the ground to the sky and breed life now that's holy, now that's holy.

to all my TV addicts that have never seen a play I suggest you go today it's more than actors on a stage to all my gorgeous women that have never slept alone find yourself a block of time and spend it on your own it'll change your view of home to learn the things you've always known

no distractions from my passions fear its always grown

to my builders to my money makers, can you feel it in the air? to my diplomats my hand shakers, can you feel it in the air? to my bums to my pan shakers no matter where you find yourself the truth is always there

the roots collect nutrients the leaves collect light these plants connect the ground to the sky and breed life now that's holy, now that's holy.

for the first time we have the power to decide the fate of our planet and ourselves this is a time of great danger but our species is young and curious and brave it shows much promise in the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discovers about the cosmos and our place within it I believe our future depends powerfully on how well we understand this cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky we're about to begin a journey through the cosmos
Track Name: There Is No Spoon
do not try and bend the spoon it's impossible

if all are one then some is none then where do all these thoughts come from perspective is a loaded gun so blow your mind and mind your tongue when speaking to a goddess call her progress or epiphany who will you be

the truth is I'm a kid still just chasing different candy I'm growing up I'm old I'm sick of claiming we're advancing I've found no links to peace in all my egocentric planning I've walked a thousand miles and now I'm simply sick of standing so this is for the thinkers who end up liquor drinkers cause if they're left unchecked the questions grow instead of linger reality's a circle and logic's meant for lines but maybe that's just mine I've been told there's many kinds

instead only try to realize the truth. what truth? there is no spoon.

if matter isn't mass and the past is still the past then everything is empty and imagination is the glass so you can move through the illusion into unity but will you be

really every math equation can be written as addition just negatives and positives in many new positions I think every question asked could be answered if we'd listen and not shovel our existence to a box it doesn't fit in so close your eyes and look around and tell me what you find the truth has more feeling than a set of facts in line as reality is an abstract to never be defined or maybe that's just mine I have been told there's many kinds

there is no spoon? then you will see that it is not that spoon that bends it is only yourself
Track Name: Peer Pressure
responding to the initial experience when a plant apparently read his mind Baxter works nights on his own in his small laboratory
his goal is to perfect an experiment that will satisfy the rigid criteria of the scientific establishment

look when my pen touch the page I kill like Kira, Shinigami eyes can't nobody see it clearer and I could never fear ya I've faced clocks and mirrors calm spirit strong mind fuck I'm feelin good now I learned it all from misfits that's dipshits with cherry bombs taking more shots than diabetics or Barry Bonds barely sparing Mary a second before she's in the bong they taught me never carry stress correct and carry on I met these trippy hippies smoking reckless with my record in they love the work I gave em saw me living what I recommend they told a hundred stories of the change I now envision people feeding families not just sitting round the kitchen when I call myself a piston not too many understand so if you're organizing I solute you as a man now what brings a clan together more than alcohol and girls how many bonded over beer and then went on to change the world

feels good real good let that fucking fear go
we're all chasing information
wonder what your peers know
it's only a community if there's communication
you wonder why we do it what's the cost of conversation

feels good real good let that fucking fear go
we're all chasing information
wonder what your peers know
it's only a community if there's communication
they'll tell you everybody's tried it maybe you should get a taste in

Cohen and Greenfield Steve and Steve there's Bill and Paul we should all know these they all met young chasing drugs cash and girls bonded over beers and changed the fucking world smoke one drink one live some be young never hesitate to smile for any reason open ears open minds open bottles lit blunts get it how you live it live it like you only get it once drugs are part of growing up no exaggeration they should be handing mushrooms out at every graduation tell you chew em chew em while you think on what your doing maybe then the kids pursuing for self would help the nation I'm pro intoxication mixed with heavy contemplation don't confuse the statement fiends I'm not supporting ya a warning to the rest side effects include euphoria

feels good real good let that fucking fear go
we're all chasing information
wonder what your peers know
it's only a community if there's communication
you wonder why we do it what's the cost of conversation

feels good real good let that fucking fear go
we're all chasing information
wonder what your peers know
it's only a community if there's communication
they'll tell you everybody's tried it maybe you should get a taste in

in another room completely separate from his laboratory Baxter has placed a philodendron plant a polygraph and a video tape recorder

before working with plants I hadn't really thought much about the idea of greater consciousness or awareness now I look around but what I see has a different meaning
Track Name: People Are Strange

Track Name: Lifes a Bitch
(Sample)
I lost myself on a cool damp night
Gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree
I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see

I think I love this bitch I think I love this bitch I think I love this bitch I really do 4x

I swear I love her like she'll never leave me, shit she makes it easy every day she tease me dreamy if I told the type of games we play then you'd probably not believe me ever since the day she first received me all too often I record her far too many men ignored her so she's sure to need support a little love will go a long way she cried and told me one day I'll leave and never think about her somehow I doubt her heaven can't be shit without her

I think I love this bitch I really do

(Sample)
I lost myself on a cool damp night
Gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight

I think I love this bitch I think I love this bitch I think I love this bitch I really do 4x

sometimes I think my bitch and your bitch are the same bitch like we've been sharing one bitch who constantly changes so based on how I treat her she'll greet ya acting hot or cold we're all affected by the love you show but fuck it either way I'll see her fade so while she's here I'll be sure to make her laugh and whisper nasty in her ear not content to entertain her sometimes I find I'm try'n to train her, I hope I'm strong enough to change her, not tryn'a claim her hit her quit her pass her to the homies hotter than before, she never leaves me bored I couldn't ask for anymore we'll be wrapped in subtle passion if I'm rich or poor until the day her other lovers spread my ashes on the shore but when she does decide to leave me I won't feel no fucking shame I don't need that little slut just bury me with Mary Jane, nah that's rude I'm play'n I'm sure I'll see that bitch again I know we have our highs and lows but in the end I can't complain

I think I love this bitch I think I love this bitch I think I love this bitch I really do 4x

Yup I've said it before and I'll say it again, life moves pretty fast if you don't stop to look around once in a while you could miss it.
