This album is a culmination of my life to date. Many of the songs are about living in a false reality (my favourite subject) well not favourite, but it is what I am most passionate about seeing changed. A sober reminder is about seeing clearly after the fog of alcohol lifted, after I stopped drinking. Island of the SUN is a song about a girl I met in Isla Del Sol on the border of Peru and Bolivia. Collective frontier is a song about the collective consciousness and Future indeed speaks about where we are heading as a technologically advanced species in the foreseeable future. Most of the other songs are self explanatory and I will leave it up to your imagination to decipher the meaning. Although I do plan on adding more written introductions to each of the songs on there individual web pages. All in good time.
A Sober Reminder Lyrics:
Now we try.
Head in the clouds.
We had hope.
Feet on the ground.
Now we try.
Escape the scene.
Face in the crowd.
With no more rope.
What was once.
Leaving us bound.
Hold the sound.
All we have found.
We can float.
Nothing is proud.
So break the drink.
Feed the clown.
Changing your mind.
Let’s break the rules.
Chase the town.
The tiger has drowned.
Collective Frontier Lyrics:
The light is on our side.
When nothing’s by yourself.
We meet the maker, feat the taker.
Holding us sublime, it comes from all our ties.
Out wandering on the street.
The crossroads of one’s life.
We take the leap and walk outside and step inside the mind.
Leave nothing left behind.
The grass has grown outshined.
When there’s nothing left behind.
We break the fears and hold those tears.
There’s something on the rise, it comes from all our minds.
The thread that holds our fate.
A code that creates change.
It’s written deep inside the space, in unknown mystery ways.
It comes to those who change.
Technology Takes PLace Lyrics:
And all I want to say.
There is another way.
I made it on my own.
And you can do the same.
And if you wonder where I’ve gone.
I’ll tell you in this song.
I’m out here living days.
Wasted paper chasing waves.
The infos in your hand.
Learn and love and make a plan.
Or turn and walk away.
Life is here for you to change.
And if you wonder where I am.
I’m dreaming of your hands.
And I want to take your place.
And see the world in grace.
It’s time to walk away.
And learn from our mistakes.
And be the change we seek.
Help others to succeed.
And I’ll be waiting here.
I’ll see you after fear.
And hope can take its fate.
A smile that’s in its place.
And now I’ll show my hands.
Talking slowly through the sand.
And time will make my base.
Gods island in my wake.
Living in a Cage Lyrics:
We are living in a cage called life.
Time is something, freedom waits for us.
When there’s nothing left, to say goodbye.
I’ll keep waiting for the wave to rise.
Freedom isn’t what it takes to lie.
We are working everyday till 5.
Salvation is what we chase with pride.
I’ll see that smile that’s on your face turn wide.
We sow the seeds of what we trade for time.
We take the dream of what we pray tonight.
We see the hearts of what we break for flight.
And in the end it’s what we make of life.
And I’ll keep listening for the waves to rise.
And I’ll keep listening for the waves of time.
And I’ll keep looking through the shades of light.
And we’ll keep looking for the shade in life.
Breach The Mind Lyrics:
Never want to place.
My hands in the snow.
Never want to show.
My colors in the night.
Life is full of greed.
The portrait isn’t free.
With no way to conceive.
A path that isn’t me.
Can I breach the time in life.
Can I see inside the divine.
This time I am free, yeah, from who I used be.
Were on the open road.
With nowhere left to go.
The earth makes no mistakes.
It’s time to jump that train.
When life in here’s no good.
And nothing’s understood.
We have to find the space.
To make this dream a flame.
Can You see the light inside.
Can You change Your mind and read between the lines.
Cos we can only see, yeah, who we used to be.
Where on the open train.
Our hearts have walked away.
Our father went to stay.
In another place.
This time we can try.
To find real human kind.
Cos in the end of time.
The heart will rule Your mind.
Now we see that time is blind.
Can we find the line to breach the mind.
If we can only see, a dream that used to be.
Island of the SUN Lyrics:
An island where I prayed.
To make a change, heaven made its way.
Next time I won’t pray. or make mistakes, I won’t walk away.
The pain inside the rain, it stays the same, stays inside my veins.
Sometimes life is good, through the pain, it throws You in the fire.
And through this strength is gained, for those who wait, it sometimes takes us higher.
But answers never came, to those who blame, sometimes makes us tired.
And then the pain of change, it came to late, it came to be my fate.
And now I see the sun, the island of the one, where it all begun.
As unknown answers wait, I’ll carry on, but once again it’s just a song.
This time life is fair, this time I don’t care.
The road is long, it makes me strong.
And so fate meets the eye and lookout I can’t cry.
But outside I will long to reach the sky.
Opening Ends MP3 🎸 🔊
Opening Ends Lyrics:
The space is filled with opening ends.
And time may bring me back again one day.
The music is my only medicine.
From armies walking around inside my head.
My hands are moving slowly.
Their voice is filled with smoke and chains and greed.
As time and space keep flowing.
The earth outside devolving.
From leaders keep us following them.
A trail that leads to nothing but the end.
And time will open smoke and mirrored doors.
A new beginning won’t be won with war.
It’s time to take the chains that we are in.
And break them down with nothing but their sins.
The tv’s filled with lies for bread.
And now we see and hopelessly pretend.
But people are awakening.
To new dreams that bring only open ends.
From crowns that fall inside to hell.
The leaders can all crawl in there with them.
From artificial memories.
And freedom born without a chance to be.
And freedom born without a chance to see.
And freedom born without a chance to breathe.
Future Indeed Lyrics:
And when the story’s over.
We’ll be working in our heads.
Machines will do the lifting.
And we won’t all be dead.
A face is now a follow.
I like You in my head.
I leave a comment borrowed.
Red dots are in the shed.
I post another photo.
A flicker on the feed.
Realities now virtual.
Awakening in me.
And now the story’s bolder.
Transmissions in our heads.
We can watch ourselves grow older.
On a code that’s made for friends.
And now the story’s over.
Ones and zeros left in threads.
The futures now a folder.
The memories in our heads.
