    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

I was sitting in this gnarly old tree
With the most beautiful girl next to me
When suddenly something tricky caught my eye
It was a mythical Arabic box
I had to pry open its rusted lock
And when it broke, in a cloud of smoke
I awoke in the pedal of a rose and voice spoke
Why do we move so fast?
Everybody else I see is slipping side by side
Living to scrape by always in the past

We blew a wish in a dandelion
It scattered ten thousand ways
While on the path to the garden we wound up
In an impossible maze
An impossible maze
We left a life of security
Learned to improvise
We snuck into the forbidden city
In a humble disguise
So we have learned from the wise
You and I
I say I’m doing it all for you
You say I’m never around
We made a puzzle so difficult
We couldn’t figure it out
We couldn’t figure it out

One bright little light in the cellar broke
Deep down underground look around in
the vanishing smoke
Where are you?
What did the feather to the mountain say?
What a beautiful day to blow away
You and I
