about

Unite your Eyes
This song is the attempt to unite us all and forgive each other’s trespasses. Hate can divide society and hates origin is from are more primordial selves. It blocks progress and can make us all blind. When fear consumes you try to look at the inside of people and not the outside. If we could be more colorblind we could be more united. These are the dreams that I have spent pondering while I drive through the grapevines of Napa Valley. We can plant the seeds in the next generation and write a new play with different lines. Freeing honor for those whom talk without a strong stance and instead argue with infused intellect to create a new truth and a new discourse. It matters not what tax bracket, skin color, religious creed you are from you still have the freedom to be who you want to be.
The second verse is a question to god of how do you make this wonderful valley? The wind? colors in the rainbow? The seasons? The sound of the rain? The reflection of the stars? Elementary particles? There is a chaotic symmetry in the elementary particles liked the charmed and strange quarks which are one of the smallest particles to occupy the same quantum space. There are vast prolific quantities and variations of matter and an dissemblance of amazing forms. The concept that light is a wave that comes from a collection of particles like the sun which at sun set is redshifted making the sky orange. Also could be a particle like a neutrino that can come from a wave or another particle like a photon. A photon could have wave particle duality.
The next verse, is a question why did God make the negativity in the world? Why the predation and violence? How can I insulate myself from it until it disappears? How can I escape the anger from my own mind? How can I live with peace inside me? Overcoming the obstacles inside your head are often the hardest to triumph. I have been broken but I have overcome.
How can I unite the religions and races of the world and how can I help? Can I believe in multiple religious doctrines even if I am not from the part of the world that they were created in? I believe in the ideas worlds away because in them the same struggle exists and in them the same solutions to the struggle exist. You should stand up to the people that you think are doing evil. One should go about their day in the pursuit of helping your fellow man or woman. Be true to what you think is true in the world. Do not let evil expand, and do not give it energy. Remember the uniting characteristics of both the sciences and the religions because they are trying to explain the same thing.

lyrics

Unite your Eyes
FACEGBDF#AC#EAbBEbF#BbC#FAbCEbGBbDFA
When hate divides our lower minds
Blocks life around us like blinded eye
When fear consumes us you will find if you
Slip through the skin unite your eyes

And in these dreams I wonder through tattered grape vines
And the seeds of hope I ponder if we can write these lines
Shout out who freed honor they talked without a stance
Matters not what creed, color or even circumstance

How do you make the Napa Valley range
Entropy in the charmed strange
Eloquence of matter to create
The orange sky wants to relate
How do you make the leaves turn to fall
Forward winds and it all
How do you listen to the winter rain
Reflection of stars on my window pain

I am sick of all the violence outside
Just ignore it and let it subside
Overcoming this anger between my ears
Seek peace is the message I hear
Overcoming these obstacles in my mind
I am champion of the broken and I am fine

I am all religions seize the day
Stand up to all the bad in the world I pray
Help someone each and every day
Be true to your heart I do say
Keep evil locked at bay
Metaphysics in a sun ray
