about

this album is dedicated to my Brethren and Sistren of Distraction.

It travels, sonically, into the island-universes of us of the Order of Distraction. That is to say, that sacred approximation of 3-4% of the global population diagnosed or yet to be diagnosed at some position on the ADD / ADHD spectrum.

It is intensely personal, yet in describing the mind, body and soul experience of AD(H)D from the inside out, I hope it rings out universally and has the capacity to enlighten.

As dreaminess swirls up against hyperactivity, what lies in the void?


Nb: the 'Katana Children of the Silver Dusk' (see secret Sonatine Facebook cult) whose sigil adorns the front cover and their quest for the Inter-dimensional Perpetual Dusk.

Track Name: Silver Dusk
We're seeking
the light that is bleeding
receding eternally into the night
the ceiling perpetually dying in rust
reflecting the moon

Carving the dusk
on an Etruscan tomb
we are one under the sun
we are one under the sun
under the moon
Track Name: Free-Flow
Baby Strange, don't leave me alone
take me to your twilight home
at the edge of the dusk
never breathing your dust
light of Ra, golden heart
vision burned to the skull
through dimensions on the street
everyday, non-stop repeat
looking glass
demon pond
glowing past
distracted class

your words get garbled
like a cut-up machine
replaced with marbles
rolling past a dream
metronomic chatter
clatter in-between

other cyclic worlds are open
like telepathic insects croaking
is this an ordinary lecture or a Shamans dream?
Track Name: Rumination
Caught frozen alone
monkey mind starts talking
nothing divine or known
labyrinth walking
cut the chord
complete retreat
repeat flashback repeat

like puppet strings gone slack
dumped like an alley cat
sumped in the worn-out reel
of a Godhead's dreaming wheel
burned out metal block
coursing neuro-rot
grinding oblivion down
a crumbled copper crown
bio-electrocuted waste
the Mercury Hare is spare
dead upon sunrise glare
lying in bed, no lucid
rusted receptors chaste
in lieu of dopamine base
caught frozen alone
nothing divined or known
Track Name: Red Dusk
Welcome to the melting dusk
where night and day will meld in trust
configuration born in flux
that gateway opens in

Fall-in Zojin-ata
All-in Automata

Our precious Zojin
on dimensions cusp
who knows the key
and will let gust
the stellar rain
us children must
with courage, empathy and instinct trust
Track Name: Interdimentia Hyper-Drive
Sunshine glowing - forest boughing
moonshine towing - silver wave knowing
rune-shine casting - off in heavens
Druid grove fasting - opening, clasping
doors brushed holy - Zojin gnoming
locksmith crowing - key works slowly
hear us homing - connected roaming
sword of solitaire - collective coding
breathing Zojin air - eternal gloaming

Ra, walked on, walked on Ra
Ra, walked on, walked on Ra
Walked on, walked on Ra...
Track Name: A Brand New Impulse
Hoping
will the mind stop choking

drinking
will the mind start clinking

it just takes over
with honour sinking

rolling
through the night not thinking

into blindness brinking

glowing
in the auto-jinxing

severed from the way of Ronin
fallen in the cove of going

will the mind stop choking
will the mind stop hoping
rolling through the night not thinking
into blindness glowing
Track Name: Hyperfocus
All-way-down
the rabbit hole
Hare marches on...
Track Name: Breaking Dusk
From the wolf to the sun
the forest and the sea
the left hand and right
in orbit, abyssal plea
the pailing moon and the coming night
honour bound to bleeding light

From Hathor and Enlil and the Druid circles
toward new pantheons
in dimensions accordant
the chrysalid cracks
the dusk breaks its portent
