Track Name: Buffed Silver is Shiny
We live in the land of the lost
Where blind men live
With fear due to doubts
That their worth is a construct
Held by the thinnest veneer
That could crack then disappear
Would chaos prevail if it did?
Or might we not build us
Some commoner ground?
Oh Cauda Pavonis!
The phoenix is waiting for birth
From the ashes of the usurped

If we look within, well what do we see?
Economic machinery?
Doesn’t the TV lie?
Aren’t the hugs and cheers
A counterfeit of all our lives?

Soul’s view of skies made blue
And bright sunlight illuminates
The path of gold through hope’s new ford
Bridge over deep troubled waters
Through a golden dawn of light
Throw away all your problems
No grey clouds of concern
Will take the brand new day
Now...

Who do you reach for sweet divine?
Or hasn’t your mother taught you how?
Blinded by greed and astral signs
Now come along with me
For a different ride
Who do you reach for sweet divine?
Or hasn’t your mother taught you how?
Look up to the sky and astral fires
Now come along with me
For a different ride

Take the golden road, a new sacred home
(Look up to the sky)
Destination for a different ride
Golden open road, a new sacred home
(Look up to the sky)
Destination for a different ride

Behold the transformation
A heart of lead to gold
Metal purification
Bright mercury reborn

Colourful evolution
Forgotten human soul
So burn the imperfections
Cauda Pavonis rise!

Fly, everything is one!
Ride, everything as one!
