about

Alpha to Omega is TRL (Tyler Russell Lewis') very first solo release as a multi-instrumentalist. A musical journey exploring transitioning genre's and tastes from track to track, moving the listener through atmospheric thought, flavors of musical timbres and expressions of raw sonic emotion.

Entirely funded by Kickstarter (project entitled: "Music or Lose it, One Man's Quest for His Musical Destiny")

www.kickstarter.com/projects/tyluv/music-or-lose-it-one-mans-quest-for-his-musical-de?ref=live

TRL was able to raise money to build a studio in his home where he, along with his dear friend and engineer Andrew Vincent Fowler (AVF) were able to concoct this compilation of audio recording & production wizardry.

Track Name: WithinAsThru You
WITHINASTHRU YOU:

It’s been such a long time

Within as thru you
As in you, as in you, all of you

Within as thru you
Be in you, see in you, gratitude

Within as thru you,
It’s you, It’s you, always you

Center the self and remember what’s sacred
Center the self and remember what’s sacred

Live within as thru you
Live within as thru you
Track Name: Tropical Somethin
TROPICAL SOMETHIN:

I’d like to make a move, any place tropical
Take a cruise, a life more magical
With a pretty girl I’ve known before
To relax in bliss forever
I wanna improve, make the right move
Paradise every night feeling in groove
The lovin’s abundance, beachfront bumpkins
Kissin and snugglin tropical somethin

Ooooh ooh oooh ooh oooooh

I’ll wait for you, true

I’d like to make a move, any place tropical
Take a cruise, a life more magical
With a pretty girl I’ve known before
To relax in bliss forever
I wanna improve, make the right move
Paradise every night, feeling in groove
The lovin’s abundance, beachfront bumpkins
Kissin and snugglin tropical somethin

Ooooh ooh oooh ooh oooooh

Clearwater to Kauai on a 40 ft schooner
My message in a bottle couldn’t reach you any sooner
No worries, no problem, everyting Irie
The isle of Jamaica to Rio Grande
Sippin cadillacs stranded in Bora Bora
Bungalow bed made of aromatic flora
Scuba diving Fiji with the neon reefs
Or paddlin New Zealand with the Maori chiefs

I’ll wait for you, true
For you, too

Ooooh ooh oooh ooh oooooh
Track Name: Actress & a Bum
ACTRESS & A BUM:

We live in LA
She’s on the main stage
Make up and lights
Struck by an arrow, timing is narrow
Two ships pass at night

She’s an actress, she’s an actress, she’s a model actress
I’m a bum
She’s an actress, she’s an actress, she’s a model actress
I’m a bum

Vagabond, Bachelor, Music Man, living the dream
On the pier, watching waves, pretending he's sailing & sailing with her
But she’s on a mission her next audition
And fairy tales, true lover’s trails, should be kept on the screen

She’s an actress, she’s an actress, she’s a model actress
I’m a bum
She’s an actress, she’s an actress, she’s a model actress
I’m a bum
Track Name: Deepak Chopra
Deepak, chopra
I wanna know ya
Chillin in the hood with my Deepak chopra!

All my enemies are now my friends
I pray for world peace, jubilee of our debts & sins
Its not a fact of life, just a capital humanity
Kill to get rich man, stop! This insanity
Terror from without, terror, terror from within
Fight terror with terror? Well then nobody wins
Preservation of life, all the life on this planet
First world, second world, third world strike!
I never owned a gat & my arsenal is love
I’ve never fought a fight, never thrown a single punch
Music is my weapon and words are the power
Universal truth, shine light, shine light!
It’s a matter of fact and a matter of time
Before waking from the trance and the oil runs dry
In the arms of our brothers we hang our heads and cry
Real men shed tears with compassion!

Never tell a lie
With my Deepak Chopra
Got my third eye
With my Deepak Chopra
Rollin in the hood
With my Deepak Chopra
Changin the world
With my Deepak Chopra

Civil war, civil rights, civil more, civil might
Every day show love, learn more and shed light
Random acts of kindness, get one smile, let it last awhile
You change one mind then you change one thought
Change the whole lot, then see what happens
I want the courage to treat a stranger as family
The evolution of our species, our tribe, humanity
All around the world, cross boundaries of prejudice
Race, class, religion & wealth
But no matter what we believe or where we’re from…
WE ALL KNOW HOW TO LOVE!

Never tell a lie
With my Deepak Chopra
Got my third eye
With my Deepak Chopra
Rollin in the hood
With my Deepak Chopra
Changin the world
With my Deepak Chopra

With my Deepak Chopra
With my Deepak Chopra
With my Deepak
With my D

I believe in us
I believe in us
I believe in us
I believe in us!
Track Name: One Way
ONE WAY:

She might be a misfit, complex or simplistic
Autistic, sadistic or altruistic
A materialist, heretic, derelict, spiritual liberal, hippy or a guru
Republican, South African, biblical saint
A chief, her belief, indifferent like prejudice
Deserving respect on the social scene
Bias that defines us, to classify the green
She might be rich, a gang bitch, a snitch
A liar, a friar a pope or a bum who smokes dope
Have it or don’t believe it or you won’t
Pro life, pro choice, in silence or full of voice
Religious or Religulous, mover or shaker
Giver or taker, but only what we need
Moneymaker, day breaker, glorified lion tamer
Wisdom of the wiser, crucial appetizer

Look two ways down a one-way road
Look two ways down a one-way road
Cracked sunglasses
Dirty Windshield
Cracked sunglasses
Dirty windshield

All these volumes by the cover, past lives of her lover
Forever the same or predestined to change?
Poverty or wealthy, healthy or deadly
Educated, promulgated papers that define her
Category, allegory, number in a book, no need to closer look
The loud mouth of a mad man
Maybe a genius but no one will know
Judges jump to conclusions without taking time to grow
Closed ears and open mouth she rants and she raves
And she try’s so hard to break free from her cage
Alien a major pain, friend or a foe?
Half-breed, dogma creed, versions never disclosed
Gang tats, jail rats, jazz cats, posh flats
Another mother busted and thrown in a cell
Frontal lobe lobotomy, microchip
And double helix wired now with miles of script

Look two ways down a one-way road
Look two ways down a one-way road
Cracked sunglasses
Dirty Windshield
Cracked sunglasses
Dirty windshield

Look two ways
Look two ways
Look two ways
Look two ways
Look two ways
Look two

Classify everything and weigh a ton
Or recognize everything is simply, just, ONE.
Track Name: Leggo Mi Ego
LEGGO MI EGO:

In time we’ll be there
After all, any day
Fine tuning, synchronicity
Designed to be that way
That way, this way, always

Teacher, undo me
I don’t wanna be held captive
Light flowing into me
I don’t wanna be held captive

The space between us
Density
Best believe we can
Unconscious nature had enough
My stars don’t align with what fills my cup
Gravity please give me up

Teacher, undo me
I don’t wanna be held captive
Light flowing through me
I don’t wanna be held captive

Teacher, show me
What it takes to really know me
Light runnin into me
Help me let go my ego
I don’t wanna be held captive, no.

Undo me, undo me, undo me
Undo me, undo, me

Teacher, undo me
I don’t wanna be held captive
Light flowing through me
I don’t wanna be held captive

Teacher, show me
What it takes to really know me
Light runnin into me
I don’t wanna be held captive
Help me let go my ego
I don’t wanna be held captive
