The Vastness 05:28
Naked, I stand upon the edge Free from all that held me Embracing the vastness within Just falling into everything This is my heart this is my life I’m not afraid to be here This is my chance to get it right And cast aside all my fears There have been some things I’d rather not feel But I’ve shed all those layers I’m keeping it real There have been so many times That I thought, “I’ll just fade away” But now I have opened up my heart The Mystery is all I can see This is my heart . . . Naked, I stand . . . This is my heart . . . Naked, I stand upon the edge Free from all that held me Embracing the vastness within Just falling into everything There have been so many times That I thought, “I’ll just fade away” But now I have opened up my heart The Mystery is all I can see

Mystery calls to me In the shadows of the night Secrets unfold to me In the petals of the light The labyrinth I walk within Is an ever-turning path The ecstasy that surrounds me I know will always last There are flowers in the dark And they’re blooming just for you There are flowers in the dark And they’re blooming just for you – for you Now is the time to change Let go of the past Open our eyes and see The truth that will last We are the ones who must be Ones of the Light and Reality This is the time of the change To embrace life Mystery calls to me In the shadows of the night Secrets unfold to me In the petals of the light The labyrinth I walk within Is an ever-turning path The ecstasy that surrounds me I know will always last There are flowers in the dark And they’re blooming just for you There are flowers in the dark And they’re blooming just for you – for you

It’s a beautiful day A golden sun is on its way It’s a beautiful day So let’s open our hearts and play Awaken with the earth in the morning Clouds are parting The day’s just starting Take a deep breath And breathe it in Knowing all life is our kin Relaxing into The flow of things Soaring with the birds On feathered wings Trusting that all Will be fulfilled With a burst of hope I get the chills It’s a beautiful day… Mind and heart Are never far apart When I trust and just let go There is no self Just a bunch of parts Making us One this I know It’s a beautiful day A golden sun is on its way It’s a beautiful day So let’s open our hearts and play Awaken with the earth… It’s a beautiful day…

Pure Energy 05:30
The nights are short And the days are long Another summertime is coming on The birds are out Can you hear their song? The trees they are swaying As time moves on The stars are burning in the dark of night The moon is rising and shining bright You pull me in as we start to sway Surrendered completely, I’m carried away My heart’s on fire and my body’s free The love between us is like the sea So deep it flows for eternity The dance we are doing is pure energy Pure energy . . . From the smallest atom to the largest galaxy It’s all one dance spinning to infinity An endless fractal of beauty and divinity A universal well of love and pure energy Pure energy . . . The stars are burning in the dark of night The moon is rising and shining bright You pull me in as we start to sway Surrendered completely, I’m carried away My heart’s on fire and my body is free The love between us is like the sea So deep it flows for eternity The dance we are doing is pure energy

From the very first moment That I opened my eyes From the very first moment I knew I was alive I can see forever I can see deep into the night I can see forever Through a twisting passage of light Galaxies colliding Across the turning Of space and time Worlds created and evolving To their own rhythm and rhyme From the heart of vast nebula Suns are born and stars ignite In their essence they are burning In ecstatic delight I can see forever . . . It took so long just to get here Just to say that we’ve arrived An endless path of transformation And now we’re alive And there’re so many choices So many things that I could do But my only commitment Is to live a life that’s true From the very first moment . . . I can see forever . . .

Epic 05:25
I struggle to catch my breath Crawling through fading dreams All the illusions have lost their power They’re not what they seem And the barbed wire Wrapped so tightly around my spine Is made up of fears I know they are mine I will break free I will be released Transcend the pain And the doubt that eats away I will stand tall upon my own feet Face all my fears and live The light I am seeking Seems so far away If this is my epic Then what part do I play? The crows are all circling As my sight becomes dim The world is fading As a light dawns within I will break free . . . Rest comes at last as I lie upon the sea The tears have all been drawn out of me I let myself float, no thought to survive With arms wide open I know I’m alive I will break free . . . I let myself float . . .

I have been spinning since the beginning Through a million miles of outer space I am the mother and the father Of birds and trees and the human race I am the home of clouds and forests Mountains, lakes, and rivers, too So many life-forms make their home here Under the sky, the sky so blue Wrapped in a blanket, a blanket of stars Wrapped in a blanket of light It is my turning that sets the seasons Winter, fall, and summer too And every springtime life gets the feeling And everything begins anew There may be darkness all around us But there is light from afar We are safe here, all together Under our blanket made of stars Wrapped in a blanket, a blanket of stars Wrapped in a blanket of light Wrapped in a blanket, a blanket made of stars Wrapped in a blanket of love I have been spinning… Wrapped in a blanket, a blanket of stars Wrapped in a blanket of light There may be darkness all around us But there is light from afar We are safe here, all together Under our blanket made of stars Wrapped in a blanket . . .

Swing, baby, swing! And start to move Oh, do your thing And feel the groove Get your feet Out on that floor Feel the beat And then dance some more Swing, baby, swing! And do your thing Get on your feet And feel the beat We stand on the earth And touch the sky All spinning stars Come down from on high To be right here Where the party’s at To purr and growl Like one cool cat So slide right in Give up control And be consumed By the beautiful whole It ain’t a thing To think about So lose yourself With an ecstatic shout And swing, baby, swing! And do your thing Get on your feet And feel the beat Swing, baby, swing! . . .

As night falls in the house of light We step outside of either wrong or right As night falls in the house of light We step outside of either wrong or right To just be here in this space with you Is all that I can think to do There are no fears There is only trust here The past and the future both disappear As night falls in the house of light As nighttime falls in the house of light I feel myself dissolving in unity Yet I still feel your presence We’re lost in the sea Infinite lifetimes unfolding All searching for love An endless revolving Under star shine above As night falls in the house of light We step outside of either wrong or right As night falls in the house of light We step outside of either wrong or right To just be here in this space with you Is all that I can think to do There are no fears There is only trust here The past and the future both disappear As night falls in the house of light As nighttime falls in the house of light I’m here with you

There’s a movement Flowing underground Making changes Beyond sight and sound Revealing secrets And hidden mysteries Truth of the self And Human Identity The basic fact That all of life is one Can free your mind The party’s just begun The human ego Is not what it appears to be It’s just a construct That traps your liberty There’s a movement… So be yourself And live your life Feel your heart And let go of all strife Trust in the moment Let down your guard Expose your heart Living in truth isn’t hard Everything that we experience and see Is a movement of pure energy Giving shape and form to all reality It’s the life of the One Even you and me There’s a movement . . .

about

After the completion of their first album, "Where You Begin," Fractal Love Jam went on a music-writing hiatus for Jessalynn's pregnancy and their birth of their son, Jaden. Now, with this latest release, "Flowers in the Dark," the songwriting team of Jessalynn and Martin are back and better than ever with a stunning album of electronic/alternative gems that was two years in the making. For this album, Martin took on the role of writing the lyrics - his first attempt at sustained lyric-writing with themes of universal love, self-discovery, transcendence, nonduality, and entheogenic awakening and exploration. Jessalynn stepped up to the task of translating Martin's lyrics into her own vocal and melodic style, pushing the envelope for both of them, and the result is a collection of their best and most captivating songs yet. For arranging and mixing, Martin let his creativity soar in constructing the sound for these songs with plenty of vocal effects, rich synths, and textured guitars. Every song on this album is filled with passion, love, and a sense of epic adventure and discovery. The overall sound is an alchemical mix of synthetic and organic, electronic and acoustic, and intricate song writing with dance-infused rhythms and textures. Turn down the lights, turn up the music, and let the songs carry you away into the magic of liberated being . . . There are flowers in the dark, and they're blooming just for you . . .
