Track Name: Hype Machine
"Hype Machine" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ Sodacon Music 2012 from Songs of Summer Volume 2

Feel the hype machine looking out for the beat - * - *
Feel the music a million people crowd the street * - *
The one thing you won't lack is now on it's way * - *
Courage for your fear because you'll never be the same

-**
I don't mind the creases and lines on my skin -
Don't believe hype that I have to be the perfect shape -
Normal people are normal people like you me -
The more I try to chase perfection - the less I'm happy - * - *

fabricated hype - it's burning my eyes
fabricated hype -

Feel the hype machine looking out for the beat - * - *
My return at the end -
My return at the end -
Track Name: Sun Wraith
"Sun Wraith" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ Sodacon Music 2012 from Songs of Summer Volume 2

I try to hide in the dark from the solar flares -
To no avail the debris flies all around
Always danger in the land or sky - * - *
vapor trails of spacecraft while I sleep _ I sleep _ * - *

Sun Wraith - * - there could be - changes to red and I couldn't see
the past in the mirror - * - * we can zoom all the way to creation

I fight the zombie trails of the UV lights
glowing particles - Mr Magnetic Field - save me
pollute all the pathways - * - * what doesn't affect me now
will be hell to pay in the future - * - * the future - * - *

Sun Wraith - * - there could be - changes to red and I couldn't see
the past in the mirror - * - * when we could zoom all the way to creation

Sun Wraith - * - there could be - way beyond what we know and feel
* - * we can zoom all the way in - zoom all the way out - * - *

Burning atoms fueling hydrogen to helium and back - * - *
Meteors they break a part - * - * all too small you'll really feel the blast -
Even in your room with the lights on you will know it's there - * - *
So what's your hurry - whats your hurry???? - * - *

Sun Wraith - * - there could be - changes to red and I couldn't see
the past in the mirror - * - * we can zoom all the way to creation

Sun Wraith - * - there could be - way beyond what we know is real
* - * we can zoom all the way in - zoom all the way out - * - *
Track Name: Keep It Spinning
"Keeps It Spinning" by Sodacon written by Jesse Crawford 2011 ©®™Sodacon Music


All day long burning bright
Gonna save the power of the sun
and light it up through the night -
keep it burning make us feel warm - * - *

when the tides swell -
I wish you will - * - *
keep us spinning
round and round

(chorus)

Get invited along -
whats up with the song -
that keeps us spinning -
like we're still dreaming rock dreams

Get invited along -
whats up with the song -
We'll keep it spinning baby
Keep it Spinning
Divine Love - shining bright - somewhere in time-
Hides between the stars -
comes and goes - then it fades -
pushes all of us away -

if I have one last chance- can i have this one last dance?
You and me baby glide into the stars

(chorus)

Get invited along -
whats up with the song -
that keeps us spinning -
like we're still dreaming rock dreams

Get invited along -
whats up with the song -
I'll keep you spinning baby
Keep It Spinning
Track Name: Mirror Spheres
"Mirror Spheres" by Sodacon written by Jesse Crawford 2011 ©®™Sodacon Music

At least it's early on enough - * - *
in the days of crushing gravity - * - *

we can move and breath a little while
enjoy the speed of light - * - *

If there's time enough - * - *
For passing thought -
in a mirror universe - * - * - * - *

Endless mirrors stretch before the sky- its crazy to think that
in billions of years - the stars one by one will all blink out -

I'll be long gone - - so should it be my worry?
yet i'm still feeling - the weight of the realm
How is this? I'm just another atom blinking around- * - *

If there's time enough - * - *
For Passing Thoughts -
in a Mirror Universe - * - * - * - *
the seconds tick off - we drop and we're gone -
and this goes on ...
Until The Stars Blink Out
Until The Stars Blink Out
Until The Stars Blink Out
Track Name: Lavender Satellite
"Lavender Satellite" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ Sodacon Music 2012 from Songs of Summer Volume 2

I can see the trails of wispy smoke on golden lavender horizons -
Stop to fuel again there on port side - i can never seem to catch the angle

the Summer that I spent my time away from Earth -
On a lavender satellite -

Cypher descriptions of the ancient relics from Egyptians show
more to their civilization we couldn't
fathom in our wildest dreams

the Summer I spent my time away from Earth -
on a lavender satellite -
I never knew I'd been taken away -
Nothing seemed to bother me - and fly on awhile

the Summer I spent my time away from Earth -
fighting pirates in space - I never saw the comet hit -
Never expected them to collide

I'm running away from it - I;m never gonna find it again
My summer space satellite - I never knew never knew
take a new one - taking it away - gotta run gonna run
my summer space satellite - * - *

they told me that I never left - I zoomed right back to earth
gave me a couple of months - and send me right back home
Track Name: Sky Traverse
"Sky Traverse" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ Sodacon Music 2012 from Songs of Summer Volume 2

(noise - spacial distortions - human voice - a.m. pilot asking for assistance - elsodacon)

although we survived crash landing mark one - again more smoke than Id ever care to see -
a ship wrecked
scavengers - find piles of cash and gold - only be caught in the middle of my shooting spree

way late and ship wrecked - thought I'd never make it back
to my earth loving home - out here in the depths of a solitary
mission gone awry my fogged up sensor tonight - * - *

Through the sky hat traverse - they fought over the (planets) surface -
exposed to debris in the night sky - * - * debris keeps raining down - * - *

i allowed computers to help me navigate - played my instruments just fine
I Didn't expect my studio to turn into a flight realism of mirror loss - * - *

Through the sky hat traverse - I come from a different part of time
the one that you wouldn't recognize - the lone representative from earth -

through a sky hatch traverse - * - *we fought over the surface -
explosive debris in the night sky - debris keeps raining down - * - *

we couldn't make the altitude to break out of orbit - their tractor beam kept trying to pull us back -
I snap the cable to the gravity deflector- escaped and watched them all go tumbling down in the blast

I don't have time to waste on petty matters of the day - I've got to win the race from one
expanse to the next - the system controls they glow loud and they fire in a rush of
adrenaline tracer lines -
- * - *

Through the sky hat traverse - won the battle for surface -
alone with my capsule night sky- * - * debris keeps raining down - * - *

(Delta 1 - this is El Sodacon - we are back)
Track Name: Stellar Threads
"Stellar Threads" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ Sodacon Music 2012 from Songs of Summer Volume 2

checking my radar * - * Watching horizon -
the desert moon tumbles * - * circling orbit - take it down

Will you make it to the concert just ahead of me * - *
I want to visit every constellation that I can see- * - *
Don't let the space ship crash and burn * - *

Forward in time - new threads and rhymes- with you as well
Gotta a few new friends - Gonna chill with them
Many ways I can mend

Who doesn't love the competition flailing -
well aren't you special - to think that I'm nothing - maybe you're not wrong

It won't take long to swim the stars of oceans in sonic reefs * - *
I try to be the best mannered creature you'd ever see - * - *
Yet I can still take a fall with them all - * - *

(chorus)

Forward in time - new threads and rhymes- with you as well
Gotta a few new friends - Gonna chill with them
Many ways I can mend
Track Name: Remain in Stasis
"Remain in Stasis" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ Sodacon Music 2012 from Songs of Summer Volume 2

Found a distant star on the view screen line - * - *
Silver auroras in circular loop * - *
Sleep through the journey when computer wake me - * - * A shiny green planetoid with atmosphere * - *

Still trying to Fold the travel fabric of time
Watch the speed while i remain in stasis
Scanning the field for an habitable zones
Always try to find a place called home

My Sensor navigation really coming alive- * - *
Binary system yield chromatic overtones * - *
Snooze and let the auto robot arms roll - * - *
I lay there dreaming through an ion storm - * - *

Join me on a glider or a hover craft
Have a radiant launch with our oxygen masks
Still trying to fold the travel fabric of time
Another new system - discovering life

Still trying to Fold the travel fabric of time
Watch the speed while i remain in stasis
Scanning the field for habitable zones
How long will I remain in stasis?
Track Name: Binary Pulsar
Binary Pulsar written by Jesse Crawford ©®™Empirical Paper and Sodacon Music 2012

Radio waves magnetize - placing signals and the rhythm runs - can be far away
yet it's way too bright - to be seeing a star with the mass and the same light -

We can stop for a bit and watch the show - beacons in the clouds help us navigate - * - *

Binary Pulsar shine -
catching the view from the window pain - * - *
Feasting on momentum from surrounding stars - * - * Condensed unsurmountable - * - *

Conduits - the virtual spins - don't slide down the cables
cause the grapple won't hold - we can fly by yet I never promised to slide - out of the ride -
well out of my ride - with the radio waves when their magnetized - pulsing signals rhythm runs the show

Binary Pulsar Shine - * - *
Inevitable of all your trails * - *
only so much light can make it through
magnetic fields - help navigate the universe -

looking at the grid and the beacons of light
always shining like fire lures in the night
with signatures where none are the same -

Spinning so fast for billions of years, slowly turn into singularities - * - *
When the universe first began...when it first began...
Track Name: Falls of Eutopia
"Falls of Eutopia" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ Sodacon Music 2012 from Songs of Summer Volume 2\

Still thinking of that day - * - *
Why can't i get it together? - * - *
View screen distract - * - *
please distract me - * - *

I suddenly drift away - * - *
I'll never escape the torment - * - *
The Universe so violent -

Re-stock the Anti-Matter yard- * - *
Made it through half of Orion tonight - * - *
There's no such thing as summer in space - * - *
Going for a ride -

Fire up main engine start now we're off again - * - *
Try every nebular pattern until Falls of Eutopia

Suddenly drift away - * - *
I'll never escape the hurricanes - * - *
volcanoes, earthquakes, meteor - * - *

Re-stock the Anti-Matter yard- * - *
Made it through half of Orion tonight - * - *
No such thing as summer in space - * - *
Going for a ride -
Going for a ride -

Falls of Eutopia exist - over a thousand channels align
No thing as summer in space - * - *
Going for a ride -
Going for a ride -

What do I think of it now?
I just see everyone jumping - * - *
Distract me from that day - * - *
Like a laser to the mind- * - *
Make the jump - * - *

As I look out - it's so deep -
so very wide and far-
make the jump
make the jump
Track Name: Deliver Propulsion
Delivering More Propulsion by Jesse Crawford ©®™Empirical Paper and Sodacon Music 2012

{intro}

{verse}

Patient ignoring cracks in the system
wasting as always a desk on the edge - * - *

Kept in the cage an American dream gone
Mirage I'm a slave make nothing again - * - *

I 'd never blame it on rip off parasites acting like *
cowardly phantoms lesser men of cruelty
hanging with rats
eating propulsion -
from the rover cylinder - * - *
Charge up the clouds we'll fight until the end
alarms sound as we start to fly - * - *
deliver more propulsion -
from the rover cylinder - * - *
serving notice - descend
- * - *

{chorus}

{bridge}

Here come high roller - big headed and bolder - * - *
Shouting out in apologetic vanity
just like the rest - * - *
killing everything without a conscience
signal the age of entitlement will not end
using up every resource - eating the environment

here come the weasels 0 -
here come the weasels - * - *
invading our lives again
taking everything -
everything we have
here come the weasels
here come the weasels again

{chorus}

Rover Cylinder

Charging up the best side now - alarms sound as we go to evade - * - *
invasion force fending off each one - the only
hope for survival evade -
charging up - the best side now - alarms sound as we go to evade
-- * - * evade and evade

{verse}
Track Name: Spiral Arms
"Spiral Arms" by Jesse Crawford ©®™ Sodacon Music 2012 from Songs of Summer Volume 2

Lost again in the spiral arms - the mirco pulse send
shockwaves through the barrier
White Dwarf clusters seem to be within range - * - *
Arc into the spirals and release energy

my bodys lack of aero dynamic range- *- *
I gotta take more dramamene
I feel the vertigo
hitting me hard
lose control of my senses - trying to handle array

can be a puzzle of randomness -
I can never quite figure -
So I clear away the space junk
with my micro pulse sonic blast

particles break up across the sky
the stars melt down - melt down create iron rock

Giant nebulous arms surrounding
seems that we're lost in history
Can't remember earlier than when -
being dragged around in my parents jeep

the earth and moon - they dance - they waltz and they go -
satellites spin the earth spin an endless show - * - *
spiral arms of the galaxy they move like cars on a freeway

except for the rock came barreling our way - * - *
Deflected with micro pulse - at the last 2nd
We can make a formula
give us no answers- i remember running -
but it's so much energy -
no matter where we are -
get the chills when

the anti rover cyllinder
flies down toward you and then up into spiral arms
taking the road less traveled yet I'll be getting there faster 0
in my anti matter powered rover cyl

Who really cares? Who really cares if I don't know nowhere to go?

Giant nebulous arms surrounding
seems that we're lost in history
Can't remember earlier than when -
being dragged around in my parents jeep

the earth and moon - they dance - they waltz and they go -
satellites spin an endless show - * - *
spiral arms of the galaxy - keep on moving along -
Track Name: Creates a Paradox
Creates a Paradox by Jesse Crawford ©®™Empirical Paper and Sodacon Music 2012

(chords b minor to a major)

Locking down the course - * - *
make my senses sail
easing my old plane - * - *
was crashing out again - * - *

Flying out of range -
When we travel back in time - * - *
they say we can't it creates a paradox
a loop in space - * - *

I used to think that things like this weren't real only to unfold
in front of me - * -*
we're not alone as far as the eye can see - * - *
Years and years of evolution - * - *

just enjoy the day - * - *

Glad you're in my life - * - *
save me so much pain - * - *
Happens every time - * - *
rescued again and again - * - *

Flying out of range -
Accelerate in time - * - *
they say you can if you fly around singularities
again and again - * - *

I used to think that things like this weren't real we'll finally surpass the light speed
No longer seems like I'm lost like I'm just hanging on - * - *
glad your in my life - * - *
we'll recreate our world right here - * - *
gonna get right to it

Flying out of range -
Accelerate in time - * - *
they say you can if you fly around singularities
again and again - * - *

I used to think that things like this weren't real we'll finally surpass the light speed
No longer seems like I'm lost like I'm just hanging on - * - *
glad you're in my life - * - *
Just enjoy the day - * - *
Track Name: Return of El Capitán
Return of El Capitán written by Jesse Crawford ©®™Empirical Paper and Sodacon Music 2012

Started out as a runt in the race- * - *
Wasn't always a Captain in space * - *
Struggled to be alive now I'm back - * - *
New leader of the freighter pack- * - *

Capitán - * - *

Yo soy El Capitán
It's chaos in the last frontier
Heavy bombardment all around - * - *
follow close so I don't disappear - * - *

- * - *
El Capitán

El regreso del Capitán
Won't you join me for the firework show - * - *
Space elephants shake the sky- * - *
Like Paper thats Empirical - * - *

El Capitán

Yo soy El Capitán
leading the team - * - *
down victory lane - * - *
lift the trophy up high and shout - * - *
watch confetti fall all around - *- *

(onto rehype)
