DREAMING OUTSIDE I’m wondering Where my mind has gone to now Here I am just wandering I’m wondering Where my mind has gone to now Here I am just wandering CHORUS: I live inside I dream outside Under the stars Lost in my mind I live inside I dream outside Under the stars Lost in my mind Lost in my mind Now you’re having a hard time Those dreams are memories Might believe What you think is true But what is true Is what’s inside of you I’m wondering Where my mind has gone to now Here I am just wandering CHORUS: I live inside I dream outside Under the stars Lost in my mind I’m wondering Where my mind has gone to now Here I am just wandering I’m wondering Where my mind has gone to now Here I am just wandering CHORUS: I live inside I dream outside Under the stars Lost in my mind I live inside I dream outside Under the stars Lost in my mind Now you’re having a hard time Those dreams are memories Might believe What you think is true But what is true Is what’s inside of you Under the stars Lost in my mind I live inside I dream outside Under the stars

COYOTE GHOST MELODIES Below the Ground There is a sound Listen close It isn’t loud Like a hushed echo Inside a shell Hear the Sound Know it well CHORUS: Hear the ring Jangling Let it sing And envelop you Hear the ring Jangling Let it sing And envelop you Let it sing Like the wind Stirring dust Through an empty canyon Let it go Like air drops of sun Flying with the wind CHORUS: Hear the ring Jangling Let it sing And envelop you Hear the ring Jangling Let it sing And envelop you Hear the sound Let it ring Let it roam Through the lonely night Hear the sound Let it ring Let it roam Through the lonely night In the night Running fast Coyote ghost melodies Close your eyes Hear the sound Inside you’ll find Full of sunshine CHORUS: Hear the ring Jangling Let it sing And envelop you Hear the ring Jangling Let it sing And envelop you Hear the sound Let it ring Let it roam Through the lonely night Hear the sound Let it ring Let it roam Through the lonely night Through the lonely night

EVERYTIME I SEE THE LIGHT I walk alone in the night Walking down the street I feel the rain on my face I feel the sun on the other side Lunar light Shining bright Flickering light Ocean tide You make wishes You make your wishes Make em fast Because it won’t last You make your wishes Make em fast Because it won’t last If you make your wishes Make em fast Because it won’t last No it won’t last CHORUS: I’m always waking in the night Everytime I see the light I could wake up in the night I’m always waking in the night Everytime I see the light I could wake up in the night I walk alone in the night Walking down the street I feel the rain on my face I feel the sun on the other side Lunar light Shining bright Flickering light Ocean tide You make your wishes Make em fast Because it won’t last You make your wishes Make em fast Because it won’t last If you make your wishes Make em fast Because it won’t last No it won’t last I walk alone in the night in the dark in the city I seem alone But I’m not I’ve got you In my thoughts In my thoughts CHORUS: I wish I may I wish I might Everytime I see the light I wake up in the night I wish I may I wish I might Everytime I see the light I wake up in the night I wish I may I wish I might Everytime I see the light I wake up in the night I wish I may I wish I might Everytime I see the light I wake up in the night

I’LL BE IN THE SKY Sitting watching time go by Waiting to grow wings To fly, to fly Until the crash I’ll be in the sky, the sky In the sky CHORUS: I’m just lost inside my thoughts It’s a lonely place But it’s all I’ve got I’m just lost inside my thoughts I’m flying I’m flying I’m flying The dreams we had Seem far away From dreams we have today Sleepwalking by your side Sharing our thoughts Sleepwalking by your side CHORUS: I’m just lost inside my thoughts It’s a lonely place But it’s all I’ve got I’m just lost inside my thoughts I’m flying I’m flying I’m flying CHORUS: I’m just lost inside my thoughts It’s a lonely place But it’s all I’ve got I’m just lost inside my thoughts

LOVE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS I could hear your thoughts Everywhere I go And it’s all I’m after I can hear your voice In my mind Let it take over If it’s wrong We’ll make it right And together all we have to do Time will say CHORUS: I call out your name And you come running We ride into the night Collecting all the light When we reach the day I’ll never forget you I call out your name And you come running I’m lost inside And it’s hard to know If I can hear your sound It’s all I ever need When you open your mind Your heart wasn’t hard to find They try to make it Always the same But life goes beyond the mundane CHORUS: I call out your name And you come running We ride into the night Collecting all the light When we reach the day I’ll never forget you I call out your name And you come running We can move mountains When we’re together I’m waiting for your eyes We can light the way You were a ship lost at sea Behind closed doors You broke free You broke free CHORUS: I call out your name And you come running We ride into the night Collecting all the light When we reach the day I’ll never forget you I call out your name And you come running

SWEETNESS ISN’T FAR AWAY Sweet scents fill the air I’m taken back I’m taken back I’m taken back I feel good I’m taken back I feel good I feel alive Why can’t I keep this feeling Sweetness seems far away Sweetness, sweetness seems far away Why can’t I keep this feeling forever Sweetness seems far away Sweetness, sweetness seems far away Dusk arrives The light fades Sweet scents fill the air Sweetness seems far away Sweetness, sweetness seems far away A heavy quilt covers and quiets It’s warm, it’s hot All layers kicked to the edge And a new mood appears A short life full of wonder All layers kicked to the edge Is it real Is it real Why can’t I keep this feeling forever Forever Why can’t I keep this feeling Why can’t I hold this feeling Why can’t I keep this feeling Why can’t I hold this feeling Sweet scents fill the air I’m taken back I feel good I feel alive Dusks arrives The light fades Why can’t I keep this feeling forever Sweetness seems far away Sweetness fills the air Sweetness seems far away Sweetness seems far away Why can’t I keep this feeling forever

Que Du Bon 05:42
QUE DU BON Chou blanc But I didn’t run to you Je fais chou blanc Could’ve been true with Close your eyes But don’t return Told me that you built it When it burned Que du bon But I didn’t run to you No it’s not Could’ve been true with Chorus: Son chat chante sa chanson Son chat chante sa chanson Feel like I could do it again Do you need to too Tell me again what you do? Could you have truth with Who you tell your big mouth wit You can’t live by lies That’s not true wit Say what you know Speak to me Say what you know Speak to me When I see dead kings Shoot the clock Thru the ship Your hands are closed It’s cool it’s chill To break big talk Made a call to turn it off Chou blanc But I didn’t run to you Je fais chou blanc Could’ve been true with Close your eyes But don’t return Told me that you built it When it burned Que du bon But I didn’t run to you No it’s not Could’ve been true with Chorus: Son chat chante sa chanson Son chat chante sa chanson Say what you know Speak to me Say what you know Speak to me Say what you know Yes I see, you can be Speak to me Cleverly tuned Say what you know To suit your name Speak to me This is the beginning

A PHOENIX AND A FISH I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I made my mind up I won’t be returning Everywhere I look I see beauty I see beauty Until the towers on the hill Slow decay of fear Slow decay of fear I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I made my mind up I won’t be returning Soft sands between my toes, between my toes I was a child safe in my home safe in my home I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I made my mind up I won’t be returning I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I made my mind up I won’t be returning I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I made my mind up I won’t be returning I watched the river I watched the ocean burning I made my mind up I won’t be returning I made my mind up I won’t be returning

ECLIPSE OF THE HEART CHORUS: Shadows in the dark Shadows in the light Don’t let the shadow Cover who you are Like an eclipse of the heart Be mindful as the sun Envelops us all Opens and feeds our spirit When the sky is the color Of your state of mind Be mindful as the sun Blinds with light Be mindful CHORUS: Shadows in the dark Shadows in the light Don’t let the shadow Cover who you are Like an eclipse of the heart Waterfalls in cloudy pools Rushing by emperors jewels Air thick with wind Finding love that lies within When the sky is the color Of your state of mind Don’t give the shadow A reason to appear Remember who you are Be mindful as the sun Envelops us all CHORUS: Shadows in the dark Shadows in the light Don’t let the shadow Cover who you are Like an eclipse of the heart In the night Let the sun sit in your heart One road bright Into the sun In the night shines bright When the sky is the color Of your state of mind When the sky is the color Of your state of mind

IN MY DISGUISE Woke up in a jungle Of visions and sounds Kaleidoscope of dreams In sunlit beams Chorus: Haven’t had a lot of time In this disguise of mine Away from your eyes Trying hard to hide I’m lost at sea With the memory Of what I used to be If wishes were fishes We’d be swimming free Chorus: Haven’t had a lot of time In this disguise of mine Away from your eyes Trying hard to hide When I’m lonely And it’s only me And the wind When I’m lonely And it’s only me And the wind I am free I am free I am free Sat alone at an empty table In a room of thoughts Washed my mind From all its knots Chorus: Haven’t had a lot of time In this disguise of mine Away from your eyes Trying hard to hide Away from your eyes Trying hard to hide When I’m lonely And it’s only me And the wind When I’m lonely And it’s only me And the wind I am free I am free

about

Peaking Lights’ 5th album titled, "The Fifth State Of Consciousness", is a double LP produced in Peaking Lights’ Dreamfuzz studio over the last two years. It’s both a departure from the new and a return to the old with a whole new twist on the psychedelic dub-pop they’ve become know for. The Fifth State Of Consciousness is an exciting listening experience invoking a story of overcoming the shadow to rise above and painted with otherworldly sounds. It’s a 12 song 2 Disc nearly 80 minute journey, where the album takes precedence over the single. Each of the 12 songs is a story and together form the larger narrative that is the album as a whole. Thru all its peaks and valleys the larger arc of themes within The Fifth State are about dreams, loss of innocence, strength and seeking an enlightened state of being after trials and tribulations.
Sonically the double album shifts through many states from beginning to end, resonating deep, like a drive thru foreign landscapes where you’re glued to the window as everything slowly changes around you. The flow and pacing of songs has a sense of wonderment and each time you play it there’s a whole new batch of lovely sounds and eccentricities within each of the players. While bringing together their love of Psychedelic music, House, Electronic and Reggae each song manages to live it’s own life and yet still there is some magical thread that binds them together.
Produced by Aaron Coyes, the whole creative process was filled with nerdy gadgetry, playful experimentation and deep alchemical soul searching for a musical medicine. Aaron describes Dreamfuzz as “a small junkyard with many happy mistakes”. Using tape machines, writing melodies backwards then playing them in reverse, layering sound upon sound to create “pads”, literally breaking electronics to get sounds, and a strict motto of “anything goes, pure creativity”. Most sounds were run thru Peaking Lights’ 1976 16/8 Soundcraft Series Two mixing console (the same type of board used by Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry at Black Ark, and at the infamous Cargo Studios where many of the early Factory Records bands were recorded) to add some “mojo”. It’s an album that is sure to be a creeper even if you don’t fall in love on the first date.
“The Fifth State Of Consciousness” Will be released worldwide on Indra’s label Two Flowers Records In June 2017.
