about

"You'd think a group called Geist & the Sacred Ensemble would have trouble living up to that lofty name, but these guys radiate serious intensity and sublimity onstage." DAVE SEGAL -The Stranger

"The album’s end result, for me, is something more far more life-affirming than might be expected. For those who can keep calm and carry on, the album is a unique soul flight, taking the listener from the dirt-caked and earth-bound to the full-moon and mystic … and back again." REVOLT OF THE APES

Track Name: Awaken//The Gut
Flying wildly, hither and dither
Searching for some truth, in a world built on lies
Start thinking for yourself, create your own path

Comfort no virture, neither is self doubt
Freedom what I crave, for you and myself

Flying wildy, hither and dither
maybe its time to, consider something else
the only truth I know
comes just above the belt

Freedoms what I crave
Freedoms what I crave

Create your own path
Create your own path
Track Name: Grave Coins
back, country road
back, country road
graveyard, graveyard

moist, midnight dew
moist, midnight dew
pick a plot
hide your spot
don't get caught

find another one

treasure........treasure
six feet underground
buried in an unknown grave
buried in an unknown grave

treasure, six feet underground
buried in an unknown grave
which one? grab a shovel
thats why we have to dig
Track Name: Fertilize
The waking filth of suffocation
Greets the morn
Stagnant lifestlye, Stagnant thoughts
My, this is getting old

Things, come and go
Fertilize the soil
From death comes life, from death comes light
Nourish the mind with sweet, sweet, wonder

Time to change
And make a new
Strive for love
Strive for loss

The wilted flower of our desires
has bloomed
The wilted flower of our desires
has bloomed
Track Name: Circles
And once you accept the unknown
Its just another place
and all the lies they fed you
never tastes the same

Emotions or Paper??
Everything has a price
Everything has a price
Everything has a price
Whats your price??
Track Name: A Sailor Says Goodnight
Marble Skies,
are in my,
eyes tonight

Marble Skies,
are in my,
mind tonight

Dawn will come, with the sun, hoooray
Dawn will come, with the sun, hoooray

Rise and Shine!!!!
Rise and Shine!!!!

Time has past, no regrets
Feel, at rest

Time has past,
no regrets
Feel, at rest

Mind is clear, soul is full

All is Well
Track Name: These Embers Need a Blowin'
Gather 'round the flame
The one that burns so bright
Gather 'round the flame
The, last thing thats gonna keep us warm

Hitch a ride on this carriage
We'll go down this old dirt road
The one that leads to salvation
From, the muck and the mold

Passion is no secret
It lives in the depths of our hearts
Once you find yours
"Go ahead, Toss on a log!"

Gather 'round the flame
Gather 'round the flame
Track Name: Naked Blood
The body, it lives, but the spirit has died
The body, it lives, but the spirit has died
The body, it lives, but the spirit has died

Cause you wait, wait, wait
But then, its too late
Cause you wait, wait, wait
But then, its too late

I turned a blind eye an opened it
I turned a blind eye an opened it

Plants, dirt, bugs
Trees, moutains and birds
Water, making mud
PAIN
PLEASURE
BLOOD

I turned a blind eye an opened it
You turned a blind eye an opened it
I turned a blind eye an opened it
You turned a blind eye an opened it
We turned our blind eyes and saw each other
We turned our blind eyes and saw each other

No more, than red water
No more, than red water
Flowing through, our veins
Flowing through, our veins
Track Name: Cleansing & Revival
Lost myself
In a state of trance
Lost myself
In a state of trance

Cleanse us now
Mother Spring
Cleanse us now
Mother Spring

Lost myself
In a state of trance
Lost myself
In a state of trance
