about

This CD was released in 2011 by MALS, 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. I hope you enjoy.. and thanks for listening.

Track Name: A Promise Worth Making
I walk through hallowed places in the night,
But the day keeps me waiting.
My dreams are lost like shadows in the light,
As the morning is breaking.

Dream with me and you will see,
Where the prophets lie waiting.
Take his hand, you’ll understand,
It’s a promise worth making.

My mind is somehow drifting to the past.
Silent voices are calling.
I don’t know how much longer I can last.
Time is fading away.

Dream with me and you will see,
Where the prophets lie waiting.
Take his hand, you’ll understand,
It’s a life worth taking.
Track Name: The River Lethe
I'm counting each day as this life slips away.
It's time to let go of the past.
The things that I feel, they no longer seem real.
I walk in the shadow I've cast.

I'm holding the line like a man out of time,
I need to get back to the light.
The blood in these veins holds a lifetime of pain.
I don't know which battles to fight.

I reach for your hand through the darkening mist.
I look at the face in the mirror.
The eyes looking back at me don't recognize me.
Take me down to the waters of Lethe,
Wash my hands in the river.
Lead me through to the other side,
Where I'll dream this lifetime away.

I remember the day that they took you away,
A teardrop of blood on my hands.
And now that you're gone I won't stay here for long.
You know that I must make amends.

The names and the places I once knew so well,
Now seem to be fading away.
The strangers around me now
seem way to close to me.
Take me down to the waters of Lethe,
Wash my hands in the river.
Lead me through to the other side,
Where I'll dream this lifetime away.
Track Name: Heaven In Your Eyes
I slowly drift away now
to a place I long to be.
The sound of distant thunder
and the crashing of the sea.
Each dream that I remember
brings me closer to the truth.
Though I know this song, I must stay on,
The journey back to you.

Well I dreamed last night I had been
to a city in the stars,
But it soon was clear that all I’d seen
was the heaven in your eyes.
The hopes and dreams of a life it seems
lie tattered on the ground.
The path through you won’t lead me to
the truth that I have found.

An army of the walking dead
won’t keep me from the truth.
The need to see and the thirst in me
are all I have of you.
The walls of the creator’s house
are now crumbling into the sea.
The search goes on, but the path is long.
The journey back to you.
Track Name: Ombres
The days of solitude,
Have deadened all the life in me.
The strength that I once had,
Is slipping from my hands you see.

The people I once knew,
Have faded like a dream in the past.
These empty thoughts of you,
Are lingering in shadows we've cast.

I have seen the writing on the wall.
You won't even listen to me at all.
We are somehow headed for a fall.
That's what I feel inside.
It's what the author failed to hide.

I'll dream of you tonight,
Glistening in sheets of red.
I take you to my heart,
The lines are drawn, the hunger fed.

My mind is drifting now,
Through avenues of dark and light.
You fade away from me,
I can't tell what is wrong or right.
Track Name: Life In The Shadows
Look across at the endless sea,
Cast a passing glance at eternity.
Take a walk where the orchids grow,
Let the sun go down, gentle breezes blow.

See my hands reaching desperately,
As I steal a taste of your sanctity.
Knowing love runs deep in the shadows.
I will take your heart in the shadows.

Close your eyes and sleep,
Fallen angels weep.

Hear the crash of a distant shore,
Where the mountains rise
from the desert floor.
Live your life in the light of day,
Only darkness knows
what it takes away.

Feel my thoughts as they waken you,
On the darkened path
where the nightshade grew,
Knowing blood runs deep in the shadows.
I will take your life in the shadows.
Track Name: The Twilight Beckons Me
I'm looking for a sign to follow you,
Cause I cant stop the bleeding in my heart.
I'm waiting for these walls to crumble down,
Because I'm tired.

I'm dreaming of the way it used to be,
When the only thing that mattered wasn't real.
But now I see as the twilight beckons me,
There is meaning.

Speak the words I long to hear, tell me truth, give me freedom.
I am dreaming of the way it used to be.
Touch my heart, Ill understand all along there's been a reason.
Now I see the twilight beckons me.
I am searching for a sign to follow you.

Speak the words I long to hear, tell me truth, give me freedom.
I am dreaming of the way it used to be.
Touch my heart, Ill understand all along there's been a reason.
Now I see the twilight beckons me.
I am opening my heart and soul to you.

I close my eyes, cause I'm still too blind to see.
Am I standing on the threshold of a dream?
The feeling grows, as the morning beckons me.
Track Name: The Fall Of Uqbar
My heart belongs to the setting sun,
Though my eyes can see where the moonlight shone.
The dream’s complete, but I long for sleep,
For I know the night has come.

Hear the anger spread as the empire falls,
I will take my family through the city walls.
To a place I know in the desert.
My oasis lies in the desert.

Through the dusty trail and the blinding storms,
I survive the burning sun and the rebel’s sword.
I must make my way through the desert,
My oasis lies in the desert.
Track Name: Angel Eyes Part 1
Alone at last, our hero looks beyond the night.
He dreams of shadows from the past,
And what was there before.
The only things he feels are from another life.
But they don't matter anymore,
He slowly turns towards the door.

The road ahead is dangerous and marked with fear.
But he knows the journey must go on,
There is no other way.
He thinks of her and wonders, is she watching him?
Angel Eyes cast to the light,
He longs to hear her say:

I feel your shadow like a ghost in the night.
The days are getting harder,
But I can't give up the fight.
Standing in the moonlight,
I know you're somewhere near.
Lead me from the darkness
And away from all this fear.
Track Name: The Young Man And The Mirror
The young man grew still, as he stood by the hill.
The weight of her love on his shoulders.
His tears filled the night, then touched mornings light.
The eyes of the dawn opened for him.

The years passed him by,
Though his heart wondered why,
He dreamed of the love he'd forsaken.
A man never knows, from the pathways he's chose,
The lives and loves now left behind him.

The Gods of the dawn never stay here for long,
Their teardrops are light on my shadow.
The peace of the night somehow made it seem right.
My dreams now lost to the morning.

The pain in my soul doesn't fade as I grow old.
I look at the face in the mirror.
As time marches on my long search must go on.
The touch of your hand is getting nearer.

The young man grew still, as he stood by the hill.
The touch of her hand on his shoulder.
His joy filled the night, then touched mornings light.
The eyes of the dawn opened for him.

The Gods of the dawn never stay here for long,
Their teardrops are light on my shadow.
The peace of the night somehow made it seem right.
My dreams now lost to the morning.

The angels of day come together in song.
The time has come to be with them.
I reach for the sky and I know I wont cry.
A life is love that is given.
Track Name: The Last Night
Last night as I lay sleeping,
My soul rose up to the ceiling.
Drifting away from me.

Then I awoke and I could see,
My spirit smiling down at me.
Hearing an angel call to me.

Someday when this life is through,
I'll think back to the times with you.
Living in memories.

I only hope that when I'm gone,
Your thoughts of me are happy ones.
Drifting away from me.

Last night I crossed the mountains,
And drank from sacred fountains.
Dreaming of where I'll be.

Then I awoke and I could see,
My spirit smiling down at me.
Hearing an angel call to me.
