Minimalist folk duo Crazy Atoms, our 1st record -

Human Relativity

"Who are you, my loved ones, that I can look at you with my eyes but see you with my heart? That I feel you dwell inside me, even after I close the door behind you? If I know you as well as I'd know myself, because I hold you in me, then why do my eyes beam every time I see you here? A mystery." --Deanna

The Crazy Atoms are:

Deanna Quijada:

Hidden under a rock, tough but soft. "Music is my good friend, a compassionate listener, who lets me pour my heart out, and inspires me to dig deeper while looking up at the sky.... I believe art (and life), is about being in the richness of our own human experience, and the complexity we discover. Like how a song full of anguish could also be beautiful, dreamy, or hopeful, and in a way that is unique to our ears alone. Music breathes with the emotional nature of the soul. No wonder many of us are madly in love with it, playing, singing and listening, to whatever style moves our spirit. When I feel it tickle my core, I am grateful, and bask in the pure self-indulgence of being human, and having something to sing about."

Artist, musician, audio engineer and producer, social media tinkerer, graphic design and photography nut, web dev dude, raconteur. Mark started playing guitar at the tender age of 7 in Richmond, Kentucky after hearing the Beatles song “Revolution”. He knew what he wanted to do from that point. “I had not heard distortion on a guitar till then and I loved it”. Sweeping landscapes of emotional harmonies to heal and hope, to bump and grind, to rock and roll. “I have to strike a balance between trying to achieve perfection and capturing the happy accident”. Weird but cool, freaky but fluffy, not naughty, not nice. The Lo-Fi Technicolor Dream Edition…..of sweet streaming consciousness musing from guitar guru soupafreek…MAD!

Track Name: Dreams
Sleep without a care
Beneath my loving eyes
Let arms enfolding you
Give comfort for a while

Let troubles come undone
Let worries melt away
Let dreams come and go as they may

Angel I adore
So beautiful
I would kiss you awake
Let me take
All your doubt and pain
Let dreams come and go as they may

Rolling out of bed
There is work to do
Put your pants on
One leg at a time
Already I'm missing you
Kiss goodbye at the door
Dreams come and go...
Track Name: Kingsnake
I caught a king snake
When I was just a child
A captive play thing
Stolen from the wild
Courage
To seek what I find, yeah

Ignored the playground
And fierceness of the cries
I climbed the oak tree
Wanting to get high
Courage
To seek what I find
To seek what I find
To see... it's already mine

Way up, I'm feeling down
Kick off shoes to hit the ground
They go, bam-bam crashing free
I don't need that weight on my feet
Cool air, for my souls
Seems I know something
Seems that we both
Crawl for the freedom, say
Crawl for freedom king snake

He don't need no arms or legs
They would only get in his way

Another morning
And I am not a child
Lean back into my state
I feel ok but watch my thoughts go wild
They make me smile
Mmm... Yeah

Way up, I'm looking down
With no shoes to hit the ground
Do I fight a war, or let it be
I don't need that weight to drag on me
(He don't need no arms or legs)
Oh, seems I know
Seems that we both
Crawl for freedom, said
Crawl for freedom
King snake...
There is nothing in your way
Track Name: Bound
Ol' eye but a pearl
Wane like the moon
Who did smile from a black pit
Sigh without lips
Blow the chill from the bone

With no life left to worry
Rise like the sunlight slow
In cemetery old
Nay a marker shows

Frozen ground
Gave me way
Grass roots push
Tender blades through
In the sun
Horses play
In the valley where I last lay

Left the hands, fingers parted
Left the feet to rest in darkness
Left the ribs O'er silent heart
One of those bones will be you
Will ya be among them, pining body broken?
In the hour of your soul
Don't be bound
To your life when you go

When I was alive my skin smooth
Beautiful face of my youth
Too soon I did die
Saw my body from the outside

Left the hands, fingers parted
Left the feet to rest in darkness
Left the ribs O'er silent heart
One of those bones will be you
Will ya be among them, pining body broken?
In the hour of your soul
Don't be bound
To your life

Floating freely 'er I go
Soar in sunlight deepest gold

Left the hands, fingers parted
Left the feet to rest in darkness
Left the ribs O'er silent heart
One of those bones will be you
In the hour of your soul
Don't be bound
To your life
Don't be bound
Track Name: Words
On the road
To a calm reply
I anticipate
It could take a while
I am falling like the fading of the sunlight
Shivering in cold and helpless to the night

Is what you said
Beneath it all
The kind of thing
To make me slip and fall
Ambiguities so innocent I do not know
I believe the worst
And fall to earth below

Oh, on the way down
My crazy head
Will hit the ground
On words you said

You impale me
With what you imply
Insecurity hidden deep
Behind my eyes
What is it you mean
How can I reply
All the thoughts it brings
Leave me paralyzed

Oh, my crazy head
Will hit the ground
On words you said
Words you said

Oh, I turn it into pain
Oh, as I fall
Everyone the same
Oh, save
Save us all
Track Name: Blueness
Oh, wipe a tear away
That won't flow
Empty of the thunder
Just sunshine, blue skies, and hope

Oh, cry a little tear for the darkness
Of the sea now
As I lie here

Oh, I won't die alone
My heart
Hungry and worn
As I go
Overboard
Off your coast

Blueness as a kindness
Blueness as a lie
Blue as empathy unwind
Sharks are friends of mine
Floating free and wild
Eat me up and I will smile
So let it be the way we always take it
In our stride
Savor drama savor life
Blueness overflow
Till the future makes us old
In the blueness that we know

Oh, I won't die alone

And I know you
And I die a fool
And I die a fool
Track Name: Mother
We know
Arms that hold us close
So tight they won't let go
Even with life spinning by
Ride the merry-go-round with me
My child

We know what grace is
Kisses on faces and
Reaching to hold
You inside

This is the waltz
We waltz through time
Mother, daughter

Each generation
Our fingers entwined

No age will matter
Where you go I’ll follow
Each time
Joy to find
You are mine

This is the waltz
We waltz through time
Mother, daughter
Track Name: Summertime
In the summertime
In the darkness of mind
When I told you goodbye
Let it go
When the body cannot mend
Such a sorrow
To see it end

Love pouring forth
Tears from their eyes
Your children standing nearby
In the summertime
In the cool darkness of the mind

Oh, in those young spring days
Your smile was the answer
To my child's gaze
Loving father
Loving father...

We carry on
Some lonely
Just ripples on the tide
What we can and cannot hold
When time will steal and make me
Cry
For the smiles from your eyes
Father
Who I love

Oh, in those young spring days
When comfort was found in your sweet face
Young child will laugh and play
Always knowing she holds a kind of grace
Like her father
Like a river flowing now
Feel the love pouring out

Like your halo
Warm and mellow
Father...
Track Name: Weakness
Morning glory eyes
I dove inside
When all I know
Falls down
Oh, ruins of the night
When morning comes
You are just the brooding moonlight
What I see in your eyes
Are changing colors
Days give way to night
And I know
I'm falling

In your sweet face
With foggy eyes
Only a fool
Would take a smile for granted
Insist in the lie
Love is weakness we must hide
I can't believe
Can't you see
Who am I
Hopelessly
Meant to be
Love
Who we are
Fuel my burning heart
Of love...

Stir the crazy atoms
Like the rock you sat on
And pull it apart
And know for certain
Like a heavy burden
Who we are
Who we are

Love is my weakness
Flight of the mind
If love is superficial
I'd rather be blind
Then open my eyes...
Don't open my eyes
Track Name: Gnome
Life with a gnome is nothing but joy
Is nothing but fantasy turned into
A world that got small
But I will take it on
I will

So if I sink the boat
I sank the boat
I learned to swim while he floats
And I know life with a gnome
Just won't be typical
And I'll pursue it with a smile
Cuz ours is the biggest love by a mile
Peek through the trees and
Spin my head
In our enchanted forest


Life with a gnome is nothing but fun
Is nothing but magical thinking gone wrong
And I'm freaky tall
But he will take it all
He will

So hop on the dog
A horse for his size
I'll lag behind while he flies
To be chased by a bird,
In our own little world
Let the passion
Sweetly unfurl

And I'll pursue it with a smile
Cuz ours is the biggest love by a mile
I can't complain
'Bout all the mess
Cuz we made it our love nest

And if he asks me I won't say no
Toss the gold dust
Let's elope
And we will fly through these dreams
And I'll be 10 feet tall, my darling

So let the bird sing

And I'll pursue it with a grin
Cuz he always knows what mood I'm in
Don't give it a worry, yeah well,
Happy is how it will end

And when I sleep
And if I have to roll
If I should squish him under me
He cries, "Don't let go!"
Track Name: Dragonfly
Dragonfly 
What force 
Contains my heart burst? 
Bright love 
Dragonfly my spark 
Dragonfly my heart 
Whee! 
Dance dip down 
Free! 
Hum me a sound 

Follow the old dusty road 
To a sky a mirrored bold 
Dance upon the water 
Sunlight grows 
Bending reeds sing like the swallows 
For the eyes and mind and heart and soul 
Dragonfly on and on and on 
You go 
Whoo! 
Dance dip down 

Tiny king 
Make the eyes now hungry 
Wonder that you hold 
I can make my own 
Make my own 
Joy 
Do you fly 
Far away? 
Who can say 
What you leave before the eyes 
Won't be surprise? 
Oh, life 
Oh, life 

Oh, dragonfly 
Oh, dragonfly 
Dragonfly 

One fine day for love 
To bring me in 
I've come this far 
To be here where I am 

If I love 
If I hide 
If I see your blinding light 
I know I am 
I know I am near 
Love oh love 
Love, love, love, love 

I wadded deep in your pond this time 
So soak my core 
Fly in scarlet hum a heart burst 
I will make my home 
So I know what I know 
Bring this moment 
Time newly born 
So I own what I know 
What I know 

Whee! 
Dance dip down
