about

Rejyna Burbank, California

Using my voice and guitar with loopers, harmonizers and effects, I weave sonic sculptures from organic layers, ‘live looping’. Nothing is pre-recorded. In addition to my duties in the band Citadel, I draw from rock, prog, metal and world influences to play Citadel songs solo-style, along with my new material. I experiment with tech to evoke the sound of the multiple performers I hear in my mind. ... more

Track Name: Common Voice
Common Voice (Go Easy)

Do we see it’s all all right?
Do we see it’s all of light?

There was a time
when the common voice among us
had no chance to dare a king
Dreams and wondering
were smothered into suffered silence
subjugated by imperial strings

Now’s the time
for the common voice among us
to challenge nefarious kings
Songs and sidewalk speeches
struggle to abate the silence,
to stay the liberated from surrendering

Do we see it’s all all right?
Do we see it’s all of light?

Still the surf and the noble
share a common threat
as our homeworld
suffers from neglect -

Do we see it’s all all right?
Do we see it’s all of light?
Easy, go easy
Say you want to love
Say you are for love

Right now, shout it out,
roundabout, all around the world.
Write it down, right it out,
your mind light can shine now.

Make your rhyme outside time
Speak your mind
to eyes blinded by the fright

Use, lose, abuse
or choose to unite
There are no second chances
to roll the liberty dice

Track Name: Mandolian Mirage
Mandolian Mirage

Sand fills the day’s horizon line,
there’s not much time
until the colder nights arrive
and white Winter stars align, a sign…

Enticed mandolian mirage,
safe passage through the tempest

The sky, the silence
The day, no shade
The night wind violently
etches furrows in my face

Gitano gently luring
sweet sounds surround
a solemn sunset in the sands

See what you are
in echoes of an army of guitars
Mirrors from sand,
silvered glass in the nomads land

Dance, dance
Renounce the silence with your hands
Sing, play
Our voices amend night into day

The mind, the vision
The heart in hand
Reflection enduring
Slake essence alluring

The sky, the silence
The day, no shade
The night wind violently
erases footsteps without a trace

Enticed mandolian mirage,
dream salve soothes chafe and chaff
and strums reflect like water flowing…

Track Name: Beyond My Back Door
Beyond My Back Door
(Long Way Home)

There’s a lonely feeling when I leave,
but I must see if there’s a clue,
enigmas incomplete inside of me

Don’t put it off
Long way home
Somewhere faraway out there
beyond my back door…

Every time I think I’ve found
a hint to what our sentience means
stealth caveats reveal,
pursuade, pervading resolute dreams

All the while what we seek
and what we say is what we need
Disguised delusion decorates
the doctorate of diplomatic deeds

There’s a lonely feeling when I leave -

Track Name: Sleeky Slinker
Sleeky Slinker

I am followed by your shadow
Night and day, it never fades away

Where you wander, I must go
I walk inside your footsteps in the snow

You are watching by the border
Day and night, your eyes see time

Where you rest and where you hide
Pursue I must, and I always find you

Sleeky Slinker
Destiny Tinkerer
Tick and tock
and slip and slide
Slinking on the
Brink of Providence
Twist and turn
and ride the tide

Time is shallow, life unravels
While I sleep I pray my soul to keep

Dark and fallow secrets travel
Shilouette that I cannot forget

Mask and cover, stalk and hover
Drift and hang and float and fly

Track Name: Looking For You
Looking For You

I am the one
who’s been looking for you
all of this time, all of this time…

Hide and I will find you
When and where and why

Try to memorize your eyes
The likeness of your smile

Where you go I follow
Here and there and now

All your life, you’re waiting
Love and peace and song

You are all I see
so why can’t you see me?

I am the one
who’s been looking for you
all of this time, all of this time…

Track Name: Galactic Projectories
Galactic Projectories

Long are the days
in the dark on the run
Star upon star
rendering dawns with no suns
Outlawed and betrayed
and bountied and shunned
Off-grid genetic codes,
the damage is done -

Gaze into the null of the void
Swim in the slicing silence of space,
last of your kind, last hope for your race

Beyond the stars, beyond the sky
Beyond the earth, beyond the light

Cascading nebula rainbows of light
Outside space, between fire and ice
Endless horizon line, light-speed wave ride
Surfing and sailing anomaly tides

Cold ironsides with arrays of pulse guns
Laser guides, crew AI, replicant sons
Solitude, servitude, sterile and sanctified
Frantic and fraught, fretting with compromise

Wake in a state of delusional dreams
Nothing perceived is as it would seem
Studied and probed, abducted, displayed
Galactic projectories or cerebral charade?

Beyond the stars…

Track Name: Gitano en Shahnameh
Gitano en Shahnameh

Shahnameh, Book of Kings, poem sings,
free will brings hope or disaster
Shahnameh, in that day, they would say,
choice persuades now and hereafter

Truth or a lie, each path chosen
We’re just passersby in this life
Strive, multiply, to the future be true,
follow hope, follow light
In your days, help the poor, open doors,
stop the wars now and forever
When you play, what you say, show a way,
guiding stray spirits together

Truth unifies, each word chosen
Imply, verify, exemplify, demystify
To the lowest be kind, purify, testify

Love the land, take a stand, lend a hand,
understand all that is noble
Find a true attitude, don’t exclude,
end the feud our family is global

Truth or a lie, each path chosen
We’re just passersby in this life
Strive, multiply, to the future be true,
follow love, follow light

Somewhere out there, on a border,
there are refugees seeking asylum
from persecution, destitution,
retribution for failed revolution…

Truth unifies – Demystify -

Somewhere inside a conscience denied,
actions forged into cold lies and resides
with obliteration, annihilation,
suffocation and cruel subjugation

Truth unifies, each word chosen
Imply, verify, exemplify, demystify
To the lowest be kind, purify
Edify -

Track Name: Born Here (Autochthonous)
Born Here
(Autochthonous Anthem)

Bringing you water, bringing the water,
bringing your water, bring me water
Everyone’s water, you are of water,
I am of water, we are water

You wanna take it out
You wanna break it out
You wanna shake it out
and stake it out and make it out

You gotta bring it in,
you gotta get the win,
you gotta take the spin
and break the wind
and save your skin

Say that you are gonna, say that you wanna,
say that you shoulda, coulda, oughta
Say that you mean it, say that you swear it,
say that you care and you dare to be there for it

Why look outside
when the truth is inside
in a place where hope cannot hide,
cannot steal, cannot lie
Borders collide, battle cries,
sides take sides,
minds devise the divide to demise
realized in the tear of a child’s eye

You see it, yes you do,
a chance to follow through,
it’s right in front of you,
beside of you, you know it’s true
You see a better day,
you feel, you share, you play,
you separate the colors
from the shades of dreary gray

(Spoken) We are born here, we all are born here on this planet. Among us are no aliens, no immigrants, no refugees – we are all humans from one earth – borders are not organic – each person is one-hundred percent autochthonous.

Track Name: Too Long Gone
Too Long Gone

Too long, too long gone

You say what?
I say that you want too
I see through the silence and into
something beyond the door

You know what I mean when I say that
we need to hold onto the big view,
stay true to what is inside of you

I hear it, you feel it, we play it and say it
The answer, the question,
nothing is left undone

Don’t you want to stay with me?
Don’t you want to wait and see?
Don’t you want to play that song?

The moment we sense it
and taste it and share it
The future, the past,
is nothing compared with now

One morning, one midday,
one moment in time
This minute, this sunrise,
open your eyes and shine

Do you want to stay at home?
Do you want to be alone?
Do you want say so long?

One sunset, one midnight,
one word right to rhyme
This second, this instant,
peace of mind by design

One person, one people,
one global connection
One source and one sorrow,
one hope for tomorrow

One challenge, one contest,
one given direction
One hope and one rainbow,
one resource -

- one day to go…

Track Name: One Single Word (Suus a vala)
A Single Word (Suus a vala)

Suus a vala, suus ala

One single voice
gives you a choice
Silence is truth forsaken
Find hope where risks are taken

Suus a vala, suus ala

One single word
must be spoken to be heard
Shout above the hushed concessions
Find peace beyond obsessions

Seeing out of you
a single point of view
If you choose to share your eyes
the vision will materialize…

Suus a vala, suus ala

Track Name: Jorie Green Thumb (Song For Mom)
Jorie Green Thumb
(Song For My Mom)

Hints of Summer,
frost melts at sunrise
Scents of Spring in the trees
and a breeze and she smiles

Touch the forest,
whisper to the grass
Drink in all that the garden will share
and take care of the sparrow

Ride the river,
fly high through the sky
Finding joy in the nature of things
and she sings like an angel

See her feed the birds
and cultivate the flora,
Mother Nature’s friend
Flowers call her name
in the morning aura,
smiling as she tends to them

Watch the sunset,
dream-paint with the clouds
Sitting fireside, warm and bright
dancing light in her eyes

Open windows,
chimes ringing in the wind
Jorie Green Thumb is smiling
and singing and bringing
the Spring to me

Track Name: Sound Sircus Sircle: Fugue
Sound Sircus Sircle - Fugue

You see the moon become
the sunrise smiling high
We want the world to heal
the pain and stop the crying

There seems to be so
many suffering and dying
My soul is burdened,
so is yours,
there’s no denying

If we want to,
we can find a way
If we try to find it
there just has to
be a better day

If we pull together
it can be
If we’d only stop the hating
long enough to see

Close your eyes,
and try to realize
what’s inside
Taking sides
is the cause of all demise

Learn to fly,
before you say goodbye,
do or die
And when you reason why,
it is clearly worth a try

You see the ocean
melt into the endless sky
As Winter sheds his skin,
and spring is high and nigh

There is no explanation
that can justify
Grab fast a new tomorrow
before it passes by.

Close your eyes,
and try to realize
what’s inside
Taking sides
is the cause of all demise

Learn to fly,
before you say goodbye,
do or die
And when you reason why,
it is clearly worth a try

If we want to,
we can find a way
If we try to find it
there just has to
be a better day

If we pull together
it can be
If we’d only stop the hating
long enough to see
