about

"Take Flight" is the end of the journey, or the beginning, depending on how you see it. It was the first song we wrote. It represents air, and at the same time hallucinogenic mushrooms. The subject wants to escape from his prison of the self, the ocean. He creates a river, flowing onto the land, which is a realm outside of himself. He seeks guidance to liberate his soul, and the wise turtle has the answers. The turtle is a link between water and land, and offers the subject a mushroom to achieve his freedom. The subject goes through another transformation, becoming air, the most free of elements. He has escaped his ego and can see things from a broader perspective.

lyrics

Surface from the great sea into the forest of shadows
Cutting through the woods
A specter seeking refuge in utter chaos dripping
Flowing into the soil
This is not my domain I must seek the words of the wise turtle
To reach the answers

There it rises above, the monolith of wisdom
Sprouts from her toes, the mushroom is a key

It wasn't supposed to feel this way
Sickened by enlightenment

Where do we go from here?
Now that we have no fear

Now that I can feel
The weight of life lifted from me
Nine eyes opened wide
No more need to hide

Into the realm of air
Feel my breath declare
