    These limited edition CD cases fold out into a dream box peep show. The boxes were printed on specialty WILD paper with a 1970's Heidelberger letterpress at Genghis Kern in Denver, Colorado. After the box is assembled, just insert the 3 transparent slides and a 3D painting comes to life. Each case also comes with a 12 page lyric booklet and a digital download of the album.

    Inside of this box there lives a dream.

    A collection of experiences and investigations. Late night experiments and
    inexplicable fits of laugher. Flash floods followed by long stretches of drought. The dream is a feedback loop with no real beginning or end. Anything said
    or done shows up somewhere else, reflected and remixed. Sometimes the line
    between the dream and the waking world swims, blurs, dissolves. You submerge.
    The surroundings are constantly changing. Seasons come and go. Keep going
    farther out. Where is it all leading? Each answer brings new questions. How
    long has this been going on? The quiet moon is out now. Big yellow stars hang
    down from the ceiling. Close your eyes and take it all in.
    You won’t know it’s a dream until you wake up.

lyrics

Awake to see the diamond lake
Is much more still and clear
When you are not here
Something to contemplate
When all is quiet and out of sight
I catch the light and magnify it

Today I’m not afraid to say
I understand what it means
In the language of dreams
Speak in more subtle ways

We look inside
Inquiring minds have a right to know
Somebody shine a light

How much longer must I wait
I’ve had as much as I can take
And then your dark magic secret thrills me
Why do I love what kills me

Then suddenly the mirror shatters
It’s what isn’t said that really matters
And the unspoken lesson we were taught
It’s only crime if you get caught
So where you last Thursday?
I was somewhere else that day
I was miles and miles away
Let’s see how long you last
Under my giant magnifying glass

It’s the age of insecurity
It’s the only true philosophy
It’s the solar luminosity
It’s the hope for all humanity

Can you see me now? I can’t see you
Speak loud, tell the truth

It’s gonna be a straight shot and a long drop

Arise, have you been hypnotized
You’ve got those mercury eyes
There are no words to describe
Speak in more subtle ways, we look inside
Inquiring minds have a right to know
Somebody shine a light
Somebody shine a light
