there's a circle in the sky and there's no reason why one bird of prey flies on the wing she soars the thermal air in a feathered scent of myrrh she waits alone and then she cries ( the waves of vapour cloud drift by without a sound the solar wind begins to sing a song unto the night she rises in her flight and like a kadu kite she soars ) descends to make the kill from way above the hill one shrill and one more soul just dies no mercy for the heart and hark the perfect art ascending back toward the skies (higher n higher n higher n higher the phoenix flames that burning fire where centigrade and fahrenheit are one toward her home above the trees peaks of Earth in snow and freeze she glides along the solar winds) the avian ones defile no time to reconcile the hungry throats that must be fed with the flesh of dying dreams silenced now no longer screams was it just a dream inside your head ( the waves of vapour cloud drift by without a sound the solar wind begins to sing a song unto the night she rises in her flight and like a kadu kite she soars ) triangle on the page this strong symbolic age in a meditation for the mind in sacred geometry there's no more mystery except for lies of history ( perpetuated tapestry the wars go on, we're never free the angels burn and souls are running dry we live a tainted dream we are the prey, we cry, we scream if only we could learn to never die) there's a message on the wall fly well before you fall live long and breathe the deepest breath for soon will come the day when colours fade away one bird of prey, and her name is death

tiny sparks of light leaked out into the metamorphinious aether an atomic reaction as in a great dance of artistic metaphor which spoke the language of the gods the gods, who created the very first seeds of looping infinite slowly, the darkness disintegrated, implosify with supernova style into its own vortex of nothingness; like an anti matter atom being turned inside out the light now intensifying and becoming more than the sum of itself beyond the scaling of known physistry and transforming into the essence of spiritual soul beyond the comprehension of all living kind that only the dead can see only the dead can see we leaned back in our stellar armchairs and fell into a deep transcendental state of bliss digesting metaphorically what we had just witnessed no need to philosophise, for we had become part of this great cosmic yin and yan a crucial observer in the laboratory of nature herself bringing meaning to the egg of life we... yes, we! more than one and less than zero wee areshaman wee arsh aman weearsh a man battles rage on every level from the micro cosmic strings to the universal gaseous curtains that block out the screaming mutations of deranged man wars in their greedy rumpus time no more than a solar sign of loop in the tesla soup around and around, spiralling pointlessly till we look within and spin in our own centrifugal compass fare thee well to the illusions, as we sail away over vast waves of thought in our ships of bone memory fades in the parades of artificiality the vapid political out-takes of our broken past cast aside and opened wide to reveal its viral deceit the light now intensifying and becoming more than the sum of itself beyond the scaling of known physistry and transforming into the essence of spiritual soul beyond the comprehension of all living kind that only the dead can see only the dead can see only the dead can see only the dead can see only the dead can see

in fluorescent ships of light we travel beyond the night black matter conceals our fate and time won't hesitate manifest this here n' now one moment where life is wow a vibration in crystalline creation is so pristine one reason is all we need and all our love will always bleed one vision alone or apart one mission toward the heart with centrifugal force where death is our divorce warping dylithium spheres and crying trylithium tears transforming, shapeshifting too flying through shades of blue transforming, shapeshifting too ~~~ mycelium outer space see the sun light up your face your past is lost and deep a memory as we sleep no room for more control they traded in your soul we're trapped inside a spell this life a living hell heaven disintegrates we're following our fates we're lost and all alone will we ever find our home? warping dylithium spheres and crying trylithium tears transforming, shapeshifting too flying through shades of blue transforming, shapeshifting too flying through you crying trylithium tears crying trylithium tears

REVIEWS
--------------

So, when Mr. Computerchemist (Dave “The Rave” Pearson), said, “Hey Paul, I’ve done this album with this great guy and it sounds good, flute on it and everything, oh, and we’re giving it away,” I was intrigued.
Ray Sulton a.k.a. RadioRay is the partner in rhyme here, anybody with the credentials of “Former fighter pilot and lead vocalist at Psychedelic Warlords Hawking Space Ritual 40th Anniversary”, who combines this background with computerchemist’s music must be worth a listen, eh?
The straight forward answer is, YES! The final result can only be described as ‘simply marvellous’.
Don’t think, for one second, that this is a ‘copycat’ album, although there are very clear references, there is an intriguing blend of electronic, psychedelic, full on rock, space rock, even a sprinkle of prog rock and a dash of flirtatious flute, all combining to make a unique sound that doffs its cap to times gone by, but is most certainly for today!
Moody, triumphant, dark but with light, (err does that make sense? Ed!). Soaring soundscapes of “One Bird of Prey” open things up, driving drums, layers of keyboards and expansive guitar, with the occasional ‘widdly effect’ leaning towards aforementioned band!
Dark and moody is the feel of “Only The Dead Can See”, well it would be, wouldn’t it?
Full on rock opening of “Urban Angels” opens out into an expressive, expansive blend of numerous styles without ever becoming “muddy” or losing momentum and musical intrigue. Try not tapping your toes to this one!
“Trylithium Tears” continues the flow of the album, some quieter sections here and Ray’s vocals take on an even more expressive feel.
“Crashing Cars” has a blues feel, is there such a thing as psychedelic space rock blues? Well, there just could be now!
Epic closer and title track ‘Masks’ has a slightly political message, possibly, or it could just be an observational piece looking back at the recent crisis, it’s for you to decide. Again, dark & light musically, dark lyrics, but the changes in the music lift this track well and truly into the stratosphere. There is more of a hint of computerchemist’s more electronic background here, a hint of maybe Berlin School, but not quite, it is however given the usual ‘Chemical Overhaul’.
All in all, if you like Hawkwind, Ozric Tentacles, Gong, or are just a general fan of spacerock, krautrock, progressive rock or electronic rock, (yes, the influences are all there!), then this is for you and it’s free, what more do you want. Well, it is free so long as you donate a few quid to a charity or worthy cause of your choice instead of paying for it.
Well worth a place in anybody’s collection.
Thanks computerchemist & RadioRay, may it raise millions for charity!
