about

This song came from a particular experience with Psilocybin mushrooms. I’m a big advocate of using them to explore otherwise untapped areas of creative perception (it’s laughable that our present culture has outlawed a fungus). One night, my friends and I were camping and as the mushrooms began to take hold, I was drawn out into the forest alone. The next three hours were monumental for me. The forest teemed with characters and it seemed that there was a childlike playfulness intrinsic to the world that I had never noticed before. A few weeks later, I was reading Alan Watts diaries of his experiences with LSD, appropriately titled ‘A Joyous Cosmology’. I was stunned to read almost identical realisations to my own experience. So this song became an attempt at describing these experiences musically.

lyrics

The fire said feed me
The liar said you'll need me
The forest said walk in deeper
And soon enough you'll meet her

For three hours straight I ran
I stumbled over roots and into other hands
Then there stood five trees breathing
And the earth opened up beneath me

She painted me black
Her eyes were blue
She made me see
She made me lose

She painted me black
She came from nothing
The trees turned to me
And said isn't she something
