nah i wish i had the words to express how lovely this album is.
i adore natalie's discography dearly--warraw continues to haunt me as a work of power and mischievousness.

but where warraw is microcosmic, creating dense forests with lilting guitars, mandarava rose blossoms forth from the universe's eternity. it beckons out to Chasm and doesnt wait for a reply. dancing piano keys and vocals that effortlessly embody space itself are what guided me through this galaxy. let them be your guides as well. Favorite track: Rosebud & Lotus.

Track Name: Rishi Stars for Turiyasangitananda
Rishi Stars (for Turiyasangitananda)

And with the setting sun, your hard mask, it comes undone
Under the Rishi Stars
Goddesses play guitars under the Rishi Stars
Goddesses play guitars under the Rishi Stars
Goddesses play sitars under the Rishi Stars
It’s golden
Track Name: Rosebud & Lotus
Rosebud and Lotus

I’ll be in love now
The crashing waves of all my broken hopes
The tsunami won’t even drown me
I remain floating for centuries hardly able to breathe
When finally you arrive
You arrive and I come back to life
Blood thawing out and there is no doubt I’m unreal as I feel
As I feel
And I disappear into you and come alive and come to life
And you disappear into me setting free, setting free
And freedom will come to everyone
Freedom will come to everyone
I’ll be in love
I’ll be in love now
A rosebud cannot be forced open
And while trying the lotus goes unnoticed
The skyscrapers of our lives will crumble in due time
Nothing left to do but relax and release
Pacify the beasts
It seems like several hundred years since someone was here with no fear
With no fear
Disappear and come alive and come to life
Disappear into infinity
Freedom will come to everyone
Freedom will come to everyone
I’ll be in love
I’ll be in love now
I’ll be in love now
I’ll be in love now
I’ll be in love now
Track Name: In The Begining
In the Beginning

Once there was a sun and it shone just for fun
At dusk came the moon and all water was tuned
A beginningless sound was heard throughout the world
Forming nerves with verve
Sound was also light, vibrating bright
The seeds of life were ripened and took flight
A live, alive, alive, a life
Which meant that it would die
In between life and death emerged time
An hourglass deceived
Made beings perceive finite dreams
Empowering thieves with no beliefs
Greed is a quicksand
But just a movement in the dance for romance
For romance
Track Name: Lost
Lost

It’s when you lost the way, a sad disgrace
Those slave-owner genes are truly obscene
Where’s the peace in your heart?
Where’s the peace in your heart?
Lost under layers of desire, a wild fire, now comes the mire
Everyone watches as you fall down
And your pretense shatters like a vase to their applause
What comes around goes around
What comes around goes around
What comes around goes around
Don’t get lost
Track Name: Autonomy Dream
Autonomy Dream

Will you help me please?
Will you pray for me?
I’m lost inside this mystery of being
Will you throw me a line?
I’m drowning in this mind of mine
Will you help me be free from my only enemy
The parasite that feeds on the dream of its autonomy
Phoenix, wield ace of swords, your lotus floats on toxic violent waters
Eye saw the golden olive tree, down in Hades -
A portal from the prison to the sterile palace
Chariot of poison grain please advertise the glory of this hearse ride
Hermit roll your black dice, an exercise in turing opal into ashes
For mercy
Free
Track Name: Rivers
Rivers

I see you in the space of broken rivers that have dried
You’re taking your final breath before you bury your head in the sand
I’d like to give you my hand and pull you into my arms and ooh la la
I love you just the way you are, but my dear, go ahead and change
My heart blooms as you fly away
Track Name: Ocean Of Ah
Ocean of Ah

Ah∞
Track Name: Hear Today
Hear Today

Remembering your smile, ah
How your laughter brought on the dawn
Gently caressing my head so tenderly
These are the moments I miss so dearly
Here today, gone tomorrow
Gone tomorrow, hear today
