about

These songs were gifted to me by the people and the mountains of Nepal. I humbly offer these recorded stories back in gratitude to the Creator for blessing me with artistic inspiration and facility.

100% of revenue from digital sales of this album will be donated to "Direct Relief" (www.directrelief.org) to assist in Nepal's recovery from the April 2015 earthquake.

Swatantrata is the Nepali word for freedom.

Track Name: Bad Eyes
Bad eyes your face is black
Green eyes looking back
Life is pain, learn to enjoy it

Sad eyes your bed's on fire
Blue eyes with no desire
Death is bliss, learn to expect it

It's not about forcing the happiness
Just dont let the sadness win
Your eyes will turn from grey to green again

Mad eyes a demon child
Brown eyes fierce and wild
It's powerful, you can't deny it

Red eyes leaking pain
Black eyes you fell again
Give it up, you can't control it

It's not about forcing the happiness
Just dont let the sadness win
Your eyes will turn from grey to green again
Track Name: Kingdom Of Kish
I think I'm gonna go under the water and plunder
I think I'm gonna go under

How many years have I tried
Taking saltwater for my pride
I saw the symbols I read the signs
Death is coming no surprise
My mothers pearls my father eyes
Deep blue seas and open skys
Sailing ship full of silver and gold
23 prisoners in the hold

I think I'm gonna go under the water and plunder
I think I'm gonna go under

Oceans rough and the sea is cold
Sailors grave in the moonlights gold
Midnight in a stormy sea
Thunder boom water fall on me
Crashing wave and my ship goes down
Dead men floating all around
Wonder how long I can stay afloat
in the darkness, wet and cold

I think I'm gonna go under the water and plunder
I think I'm gonna go under

I see my life swim away from me
I feel myself swallowed by the sea
I think I'm gonna go under the water and plunder

No more pleaseure no more pain
No more in this life to gain
I think I'm gonna go under the water and plunder

I close my eyes to take my sleep
I notice something glowing in the deep
I think I'm gonna go under

I watch in wonder as I'm sinking down
Bright glowing city beings all around
Welcome to a land of bliss
Finally found the Kingdow of Kish
My past life is a memory
I'm back where i was born to be
so take me mermaid or take me fish
I'm going down to the Kingdom of Kish

I think I'm gonna go under the water and plunder
I think I'm gonna go under
Track Name: Soul Sex
Give me refuge
I’ll build you from the inside
Shield me from the deluge
I’ll protect you from the tide

Rip you into pieces
I know you’ll trust me to
Watch as love increases
Sink your teeth into

My soul

Iris of communion
Words mean nothing here
Saliva is a union
Nothing is unclear

Time makes us immortal
Love is a tattoo
Blood is beating forceful
As I sink my teeth into

Your soul

I am a stranger
You’ve met me many times before
Feel no danger
Take permission to explore

Denying your submission
It’s you who must pursue
Destroying all tradition
Sink your teeth into

My Soul
