about

"Crystal Cave" is a sneak peak at the second installation off our never-never-ending musical collection, the Love Bubble (working title: Ultramagnetic Universal Love Revolution, to be released summer 2011!!). Drawing inspiration from Joseph Campbell, Hayao Miyazaki, Bjork, and Dr. Suess, we set out to explore where innocence & song meet the big bang. The song features a rap duet with Ava Flava about a candy-land-fever-dream we shared independent of each other.

lyrics

inside your heart there is a crystal cave
where the witches and the wizards invent their games
they sew a string of singalongs
and tie them to the wings of swans
connecting hearts to stars to cookie jars
in daisy chain trains
daisy chain trains
daisy train chains
awww....

life is like a box of constellations
astrologies arrive from outerspacin
mythologies arise in every nation
firecrackers in the mind explode

a single hero with a thousand faces.
one story interspersing to a million places
interlocking in a billion ba ba billion ways.
everything comes from the great unknown.
and all is known in the great unknown!

light travels (all day) so slowly (night too)
on this train bound for glory (play around all day)
sweet child, you've got time to play

(da da da da (hey)
da da da da (hey)
da da da da (hey)
da da da da!)

inside your heart there is a crystal cave
where the witches and the wizards invent their games
they sew a string of singalongs
and tie them to the wings of swans
they fly by night in time to save the day
from ancient crazies
ancient crazies
ancient crazies
awww...

CJ:

Once upon a time a steamboat chased me ava:PLAY AROUND ALL DAY
to a cotton candy cloud above the sea.
Jumped on a dragon. Killer whales paraded
holding back that crazy steamboats steam.
The dragon tossed me with its tail
to blast me with dragonfire smelling like jellybeans.
I safely landed on the cloud that transformed to a swan
while the steamboat just drowned in silly misery.

Ava & CJ: "Woe woe woe woe woe woe woe is me...toot toot!"

Ava:
And so i'm drowning in my steamboat tryin to stay afloat cj: PLAY AROUND ALL DAY
while Mista Cookie Jar's flying on a swan.
A blue whale batted away the killer whales,
swallowed me and spit me out towards the sun.
And then he sees me in the sky like a comet
in my steamboat, so I flash a little twinkle in my eye.
To his surprise, at the wheels Ava Flava, now he feels like a hater.
I was flying by his side the whole time...!


CJ AVA

Lo Siento Ain't a thang
mad respect Ain't it strange?
Round & round That's how we play the crystal cave game, holla

Love Bubble! on the double
Rainbows out the puddles
pot - gold u hold the missing piece of the whole puzzle!


Old egos (like mom) need grounding. (dad too)
And I thank the gods you found me
(Takings turns who's sage)
Our lifetimes rhyming game by game.

(deedle eedle dee (Hey)
deedle eedle dee (hey)
deedle eedle dee (All day!)
deedle eedle dee woo!)

(da da da da (hey)
da da da da (hey)
da da da da (hey)
da da da da!)

inside your heart there is a crystal cave
where the witches and the wizards invent their games
they sew a string of singalongs
and tie them to the wings of swans
they fly by night in time to save the day
from ancient crazies

inside your heart there is a crystal cave
where the witches and the wizards invent their games
they sew a string of singalongs
and tie them to the wings of swans
connecting hearts to stars to cookie jars
in daisy chain trains
daisy chain trains
daisy train chains
