about

Basically a 24 hour recording extravaganza. Not proud of this mix, but I met the deadline. I couldn't think of a particularly unique idea, so I went with a familiar theme: loss of faith.

lyrics

In the depth of the morning
Opening up my eyes
Million daggers before me
Cutting across the tides
I have come to release you
Every single Word
All the questions that caught in my throat
Suddenly so absurd

Never really seen the sunrise
Without the comfort of your lens
A different kind of clarity
Now all I see is
Rocks and sky and water and sand

At the first strip of amber
Grappling with the dawn
A new chill finds my collar,
No longer a ghost response
Now the spell has been broken
It sinks down to the ocean floor
It’s a beautiful thing
To feel so insecure

Never really seen the sunrise
Without the clouds inside my head
The waking world in front of me
And all I see is
Rocks and sky and water and sand

I cannot blame you for my sorrow
Any more than I can manifest
My solace from the sky
And when the night is cold,
Behold the light was just a candle

The coming eventide
Doesn’t make me change my mind
No longer bow to grand designs
Or master plans
All I see is rocks, sky, water and sand
