about

This CD was released in 2009 by Unicorn Digital, in the genre of what I would call Progressive Rock. That term defining the type of music that was made famous throughout the 70s by bands such as Genesis, The Moody Blues and Pink Floyd. The music is soft, dark and melancholy because that's the way I like it. So if you like your Prog Rock with lots of jazz fusion or heavy metal in it, you may not find what you're looking for here.. Either way, thanks for listening.

Track Name: The Journey
Part 1) Into The Abyss.. Instrumental.

Part 2) Soldier of The Moon and The Stars

I remember the mountains, and the mid morning dew.
The crash of the ocean and the echoes of you.

I look to these eyes of you,
Your heartbeat to guide me through,
This maze of confusion and of pain.

I've tried to tell you many times,
The world will not forgive my crimes,
I must face these demons alone.

Our hero puts his armour on,
He sings a long forgotten song,
His blade shining brightly in the light.

He knows now what must be done,
To fight the battle till it's won.
A soldier of the moon and the stars.

I remember the mountains, and the mid morning dew.
The crash of the ocean and the echoes of you.

Part 3) I Remember

The battle has ended, there's blood on the land.
The singing of Angels, the end is at hand.
I remember the passion, I remember the pain.
The darkness is falling, till I see you again.

I remember the mountains, and the mid morning dew.
The crash of the ocean and the echoes of you.
Track Name: The Fortunate One
I can see clearly now,
The gray on the horizon.
Deep down inside of me, I hear the call.

The Moon Goddess walks through this town all alone,
She's speaking to no one,
There's no one she knows.
Her hair falling down shows the light from the sun,
And everyone thinks I'm the fortunate one.

The days of this life sometimes weigh down on me,
There's a price to be paid if you live to be free.
I wonder at times if it's all worth the pain,
Would I do it all over to see you again?

I'm dreaming of Avalon,
It's a place that I go in my mind.
I'm looking for signs of you,
And I know in my heart what I'll find.
It's not for the need of life,
That I carry the sword in my hand.
The darkness is everywhere now,
I must face it alone where I stand.

The Moon Goddess walks through this town all alone,
She's speaking to no one,
There's no one she knows.
Her hair falling down shows the light from the sun,
And everyone thinks I'm the fortunate one.

The days of this life sometimes weigh down on me,
There's a price to be paid if you live to be free.
I wonder at times if it's all worth the pain,
Would I do it all over to see you again?

I can see clearly now,
The gray on the horizon.
Deep down inside of me, I hear the call.
Track Name: Rose Coloured Halls
There are things I've locked away in my heart.
Images and ghostly shapes in the dark.
Looking out through eyes grown weary and grey.
Hoping someone helps me to see the light of day.

Pasting up these photographs upon my happy wall.
I notice that I'm almost done, one more you see.
That's all.
This mind of mine was once so clear,
I really had it all.
But now I don't know where it's gone,
I've taken quite a fall.

I see roses!! In the halls, I paint these walls.

I see the picture of you on the wall.
I tried to take it down one time,
The chair was just too small.
It's taken me some 50 years to play this little game.
The rules are changing every day,
The prize is still the same.

Last night I wandered down rose colored halls.
The visions that I'm seeing are painted on these walls.
The dreams I have of you each night,
Are tearing at my soul,
I only hope you hear my cries,
The madness takes it's toll.

There are things I've locked away in my heart.
Images and ghostly shapes in the dark.
Looking out through eyes grown weary and gray.
Hoping someone helps me to see the light of day.
Track Name: Everything Dies
1st Verse.. The Pain:

You don't have to say it,
I can read it in your eyes.
Have you forgotten?
I can see through your disguise.

The hero is broken,
There's no one left alive.
Go on with your life now,
I guess everything dies.

Chorus.. The Passion:

I'd tear down these walls tonight,
If that's what it takes to be with you.
I'll rip out the heart and soul,
Of anything blocking my way.
The touch of the pale moonlight,
Is there to feed my passion.
I've lost all control of myself,
This heart has a mind of it's own.

2nd Verse:

I'm dreaming of you now,
The heart satisfies.
But dreams can't be with me,
I guess everyone cries.

2nd Chorus:

I'd tear down these walls tonight,
If that's what it takes to be with you.
I'll rip out the heart and soul,
Of anything blocking my way.
The touch of the pale moonlight,
Is there to feed my passion.
I've lost all control of myself,
This heart has a mind of it's own.

The End:

Winter is coming, dark clouds in the sky,
The leaves have all fallen, I guess everything dies.
Track Name: Thoughts Of Suicide
Falling through rainbows,
It seems like I've lost tomorrow.
Dreaming of Angels,
They know that I need their sorrow.

Drifting to nowhere,
You feel like you're dying slowly.
Hold on to your soul,
Now breathe deep and leave your body.

Night time is beckoning,
The shadows form, the ghosts awaken.
Twilight is where they hide,
Those gentle thoughts of suicide.
Track Name: Spanish Sun
I'm dreaming of you in the dark,
Life goes on, time's not with me.
We've been dancing in circles too long,
What went wrong? You're not with me.

I'm dancing with you in the dark,
Time goes on, life's not with me.
The fire in your eyes now seems gone,
What went wrong? Did you miss me?

Walking through the night,
I search by candle light, now I've found you.
Wait till morning comes,
The rising Spanish sun shows the way.

Tearing through the dawn,
I see you're not alone.
The rage inside me boils,
The passion takes it's toll.

Reaching for the gun,
There's nowhere left to run.
I'm taking what is mine,
Our souls now intertwined.
Track Name: Your Ghost Tonight
Last night I lay in the shadow of the moon.
Warm waves of time, gently washing my soul.
These thoughts of you, and the memories that I know,
Linger in my mind, telling me which way to go.

Deep in my heart, there’s a place I’ve never been,
The signs show the way,
But I don’t know what they mean.
You used to say that to love you had to live,
But through all the pain, what more is there to give?

You are my ghost tonight, and I am your shadow.
These halls where you’ve haunted me,
Are burning in your light.

Each day that has passed us by is lost to forever.
The screaming of souls at night,
The price that we pay.

Every night when I’m lying in bed,
I’m thinking of you.
Every dream, every thought in my head,
Is all about you.

Last night I lay in the shadow of the moon.
Warm waves of time, gently washing my soul.
These thoughts of you, and the memories that I know,
Linger in my mind, telling me which way to go.

I am your ghost tonight, and you are my shadow.
These halls that I’ve haunted you,
Are melting with decay.

Each day that has passed us by is lost to forever.
The screaming of souls at night,
The price that we pay.

You are my ghost tonight, and I am your shadow.
These halls where you’ve haunted me,
Are burning in your light.

Each day that has passed us by is lost to forever.
The screaming of souls at night,
The price that we pay.

Last night I lay in the shadow of the moon.
Warm waves of time, gently washing my soul.
Track Name: The Days Of Hieronymus
My hands are shaking,
Is this a life worth taking?
I reach for the trigger
You see the gun? Am I the one?

I can't believe the words were spoken,
The eyes of time, a promise broken.

The paint is drying on the walls outside my window payne.
I wonder if the glass is strong enough to stop the rain.
The yellow sun that used to glow inside to start my day,
Is fading fast into a sleepy shade of hopeless grey.

My friend Hieronymus, on rainy days we take the bus.
The city streets are bare, the smell of coffee in the air.
We talk of memories and what became of yesterday.
My mind begins to wish that every day could be this way.

And teardrops roll down my face in the rain.
I know that places change but people stay the same.
Where are the faces I recall from the past?
Their memories like the sun are fading fast.

My friend Hieronymus, on rainy days we take the bus.
The city streets are bare, the smell of coffee in the air.
We talk of memories and what became of yesterday.
My mind begins to wish that every day could be this way.
Track Name: This Heart Of Mine
I wait in the dark, watching shadows of you.
I look to the light, hoping someone pulls me through.
There's blood on my hands, a broken picture in my heart.
I know now where I stand, with the many, not the few.

The darkness that's inside of me,
Is now waning in morning's light.
Look through these eyes and see,
Have we really lost the fight?

I've learned how to cry in reflections of my life.
I know now how to die, spirits chasing through the night.

The darkness that's inside of me,
Is now waning in morning's light.
Look through these eyes and see,
Have we really lost the fight?

Go to the altar there,
Pull the blade out of my side.
Reach for this heart of mine,
Take it with you for all time.

I wait in the dark, watching shadows of you.
I look to the light, hoping someone pulls me through.
