Subtle. Yet powerful. Yes Lucid is a fusion of sounds, which just like the earth's tide, has its own natural ebb and flow that's all at once organic and sensory overloading.

Based out of North Carolina, an area traditionally dominated by what lead singer Cody Eagle Horse Godwin describes as "cookie cutter bands," Lucid has been working hard to fill the musical void with its unique alt-rock soundscapes since coming together in 2005. With members coming from groups like Stone Feather, Mis2Mia, and Tribal Conflict, Lucid has evolved from its roots of Southern rock, alt rock, punk and use of melodic guitars to intertwine and create music that transcends all of these.

Like getting a breath of fresh air in a polluted soundscape, Lucid has been rocking shows throughout the Carolina's and collecting positive vibes all along the way. They are riding high off their recent 2008 Native-E Music Award for Best Alternative Rock Song, receiving accolades and setting the bar for great things in the future. The Awards Show took place on Saturday, September 20, 2008 at the Historic El Rey Theater in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. The mission and purpose of the Native-E Music Awards® is to recognize and honor our Native American and Aboriginal people's musical talents and achievements, to present these talents and achievements on a global stage, to nurture and inspire the talent and goals of our Native American and Aboriginal people by creating and presenting opportunities for their musical talent to be reviewed, exposed, and marketed to the broader mainstream music industry.

"Possibly the greatest goal that we have, short term and long term, is for our music to have some sense of vitality and uniqueness on the music scene. Music is truly a universal language... as long as we still have the need to create, then music will always be our emotional and creative outlet," says Godwin.

Embracing their Native American roots as a source for their creativity and inspiration, Lucid is:

Lyrics

Shadows

Written By: Cody E.H. Godwin

SHADOWS

Love hate love
You want to make me believe
Fade into you
Fade away from me

Judged by the lies
That are cast upon us
Haunted by these times
Breathing is not enough

In and out of shadows
To feed inside me
All is lost again
Death consumes me
Stepping in and out of shadows
Pulling away the layers
Pushing through another side

Changing colors like the autumn sky
Your breath sustains
The shattered soul of lies
Breaking through to you
Turning the tides
Destroying what I had to

Moving through your space
Into you
And so it is
Driving through you

Shadows through you

Regressing to the Womb

Written By: Cody E.H. Godwin

Regressing To the Womb

1st Verse
Obsessed by one’s touch
Feel the push and pull
Torture what’s left of me
Slow the time away again
A short breath of silence
Inhaling some sort of dignity
Yet I’m suffocating this space
Squeezing what’s left of us

Chorus
Winding down pieces left of me
Transcending passages of time
Pulsating, loathing to breath
The giver of life, regressing to the womb

2nd Verse
No one to blame now
Just the heart bleeding to live
Feeling that you can’t let go
Slip away the life you gave me
Falling through your soul once more
I want to touch you
Forgotten this seems to be
Every second precedes a slow stare

Bridge
Sacrifice what’s left of me
You are the giver of life
I only pray to breathe your soul
My life is you, your life is true

Angel of the Sun

Written By: Cody E.H. Godwin

“ANGEL OF THE SUN”

Climbing through this world
The heart left in ruin
The bold yields the boastful
The tongue begins to fold

Almost there, pulling the strings
Stretching beyond the limit
Loving the feel of it all

Ride the wave of time
Rape each other’s existence
Truly become one
Yes, truly become one

Shatter the shell of me
But the blood remains
Breathing into me

Angel of the sun
Calling the angel of the sun
Angel of the sun
Becoming the angel of the sun

Losing the lies
Take the pressure
Explode into each other

The blindness grips the whole
The answer eludes us all
But you know what it is
And it reigns true…

Let It Bleed (The Color Remains)

Written By: Cody E.H. Godwin

Let It Bleed (The Color Remains)

1st Verse
The unseen is provoked
Approach and descend

The abyss of denial
Evil dwells within

The breath of God
Inhale again

Chorus
The truth is in the light
And the color that remains
Let it bleed!

2ND Verse
A smokeless flame
Burning and free

We burn in hell everyday
And we all bleed

But I’ve made the choice
Learned to crawl to see

Tag
Linger on the bridge
That you refused to build
Reach the threshold
Before it fades

Chorus
The truth is in the light
And the color that remains
Let it bleed…let it fade

Secret Wings

Written By: Cody E.H. Godwin


SECRET WINGS

1st Verse
This is not the place that I wish to divulge my secrets
Or anything that I ever wish to behold
And it’s like walking along a razor
Somehow slicing in two my reality
Or what I thought was real

Chorus
And when nothing seems to matter
Trace a river through this life
Become passersby

When everything seems to falter
Resurrect the temple pieces
Reverse the hands of time

An intervention of the structure

2ND Verse
Flowing on the wings, creating perpetual motion
You can’t change the direction of the wind
Take a long deep breath
Inhale the circles
Changing the shape of reciprocity

Chorus
And when nothing seems to matter
Trace a river through this life
Become passersby

When everything seems to falter
Resurrect the temple pieces
Reverse the hands of time

An intervention of the structure

Outro
Pushing, breaking through another wall
You can’t bend the hands of time

Forever Amends

Written By: Lucid

“FOREVER AMENDS”

1st Verse
The loss, the dignity, the pride
Is not the solution
Fateful cocktail of truth
Loving only you, is true

Pre-Chorus
You bleed your eyes
And you must try, to wash it all away

Chorus
And it feels like, forever is surreal
Yearning for the pleasure
Screaming for you

2ND Verse
The flesh, the soul,
They may endure
But to heal the mind
Obscurity is to bind

Pre-Chorus
You bleed your eyes
And you must try, to wash it all away

Chorus
And it feels like, forever is surreal
Yearning for the pleasure
Screaming for you

Each Passing Moment

Written By: Lucid

Each Passing Moment

1st Verse
Displacing, the concept of time
Erasing, memories folding reality
Touching, the face-immortality

Pre-Chorus
The slow grind of life
How long is the trip? Destination unknown
Too many wrong turns
When I reach this realm, and diffuse this spell

Chorus
And I love the way you heal me
Contradict me, to the point of regret
And loving is not enough
To fill the void of each passing moment

2ND Verse
Shatter, the faith of millions
Running, on an ocean wave
Dissolving, the structure of wings

Pre-Chorus
The slow grind of life
How long is the trip? Destination unknown
Too many wrong turns
When I reach this realm, and diffuse this spell

Chorus
And I love the way you heal me
Contradict me, to the point of regret
And loving is not enough
To fill the void of each passing moment

Outro
You can’t shun innocence
Find the unconditional
Stretch for the balance
Living a lie
Tearing away from the truth…

Cry The Reckoning

Written By: Lucid

“Cry the Reckoning”

1st Verse
Becoming fixated on the solution
To man’s loss of dignity
Realizing vivid dreams
Are not always what they seem
Through the numbness of lucidity
Rejoice the innocent life
Overlook the likeness of you
Overshadow you…

Pre-Chorus
Merciless is the traveler
Uncompromise this position
Fade into the night
Bring the darkness
As we soak the sin
And we embrace the light

Chorus
I’ll cry the reckoning
The heart is swollen
A degree to withstand
Multitudes of wings
Divine harmony
Infinite souls of man
What once was
Shall never be
Blood flows like concrete
Shadows you will never see
