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 . . .

Track Name: The Vastness
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 fear
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
I thought
I’ll just fade away
Now I
Have opened up my heart
The mystery
Is all I can see

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 fear

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 fear

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
I thought
I’ll just fade away
Now I
Have opened up my heart
The mystery
Is all I can see

Track Name: Flowers in the Dark
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
And they’re blooming just 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

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
And they’re blooming just for you
Track Name: It's a Beautiful Day
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 of 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

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
Track Name: Down the Wormhole
Welcome to the Tryptamine Molecular Express
Passengers are encouraged
To sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride
Do not attempt to hold on,
As there is nothing to hold on to
Feel sensations as they present themselves
Surrender to the energy
And keep hands and feet
Inside the universe at all times
Should discomfort arise
Check to see that you are breathing calmly
And keep your body in a relaxed,
Symmetrical position
We will now initiate launch procedure

It’s time to take a trip
On a cosmic ride
We’re going down the wormhole
Take a look inside
The universe enfolds
Eternity
Slip down the wormhole
Touch infinity

Down the wormhole x 5
Down the wormhole x 5

It’s time to take a trip . . .

Down the wormhole x 5
Down the wormhole x 5

We have now arrived at our destination:
The center of all existence
Feel free to explore your being
And the fractals
But be sure not to misplace your mind

Some say it is a mystery
- The Human Being
Your energetic system
Runs on tryptamines
5MeO
and DMT
Molecules of insight
And reality
When you let go
Embrace the One
Your fears fall away
A new life has begun
The moment is now
The time is Right
Let’s fall down the wormhole
Embrace freedom tonight

It’s time to take a trip . . .

Down the wormhole x 5
Down the wormhole x 5

We thank you for traveling with the Tryptamine Molecular Express
And hope that you enjoy your stay
Wherever you have landed
And wherever your ongoing journey takes you
And remember:
No matter where you go, there you are
Track Name: Pure Energy
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 is 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
Track Name: Twisting Passage
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 collide
Across the turning
Of space and time
Worlds created and evolving
To their own rhythm and rhyme

From the heart of vast nebulae
Suns are born and stars ignite
In their essence they’re burning
In ecstatic delight

I can see forever . . .

It took so long just to get here
Just to say we’ve arrived
An endless path of transformation
But now we’re alive

And there’s so many choices
So many things I could do
But my only commitment
Is to live a life that’s true

From the very first moment . . .

I can see forever . . .
Track Name: Epic
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
What part do I play?
The crows are all circling
As my sight becomes dim
The world is all fading
As light dawns from 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 . . .
Track Name: A Blanket Made of Stars
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 lifeforms
Make their homes here
Under the sky, the sky so blue

Wrapped in a blanket
A blanket of stars
Wrapped in a blanket of love

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 love
Track Name: Swing, Baby, Swing!
Swing your swing
And start to move
Do your thing
And feel the groove
Get your feet
Out on the floor
Feel the beat
And dance some more

Swing your swing

Do your thing

Get on your feet

Feel the beat

We stand on 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
To be consumed
By the beautiful whole
It ain’t a thing
To think about
Lose yourself
With an ecstatic shout

Swing your swing

Do your thing

Get on your feet

Feel the beat
Track Name: Night in the House of Light
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’s 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
And endless revolving
Under starshine 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’s 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
Track Name: Movement Underground
There’s a movement
Flowing underground
Making changes
Beyond sight or 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

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
Flowing underground
Making changes
Beyond sight or sound
Revealing secrets
And hidden mysteries
Truth of the self
And Human Identity
