Akira The Don – Catalysts Lyrics (feat. Terence McKenna)

[Intro]
Catalysts to say, what has never been said
To see what has never been seen
To draw, paint, sing, sculpt, dance, and act
What has never before been done

To push the envelope of creativity and language
And what's really important is, I call it the felt presence of direct experience
Which is a fancy term which just simply means we have to stop consuming our culture
We have to stop consuming our culture
We have to create culture
Don't, don't, watch TV, don't read magazines, don't еven listen to NPR
Creatе your own roadshow, the nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe
And if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else then you are disempowered
You're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y
This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking
That, that, that is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears
And we're told, "No." We're unimportant, we're peripheral. Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that. And then you're a player

You don't want to even play in that game
You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world
Where is that at?
Where is that at?
Where is that at?

[Chorus]
Catalysts to say what has never been said
To see what has never been seen
To draw, paint, sing, sculp, dance, and act what has never before been done
To say what has never been said
To see what has never been seen
To draw, paint, sing, sculp, dance, and act what has never before been done
Reclaim your mind
Reclaim your mind
Reclaim your mind

[Chorus]
Catalysts to say what has never been said
To see what has never been seen
To draw, paint, sing, sculpt, dance and act what has never before been done
To say what has never been said
To see what has never been seen
To draw, paint, sing, sculpt, dance and act what has never before been done

Reclaim your mind
