This is an album about Endings, Beginnings and Strange Dreams.

Written and recorded between October 2015 and June 2016 at The Quarry.

The lyrics on this record were inspired by dreams I recorded via a dream journal I kept at the beginning of the year so I guess you could also call this a concept album.

As before, this album was not mastered so to fully enjoy it I urge you to use that volume control on your replay device of choice and crank it up.

Track Name: The Fallen Tree
out in the summer breeze
a ghost stares at the sea
and under a winter sky
a Traveller searches for a sign

open up the door
and you will feel no more
the path you're on is hidden in the light

wait another day
and see it burn away
the path you're on is hidden from the light

and caught in the summer breeze
he's led to the Fallen Tree
and under an autumn sky
the Traveller lies down to die
Track Name: Silhouette
shadows fall on the dying land
nothing left but a Sea Of Sand
you make your way across the river

looking up at the starry sky
watch the moons slowly rolling by
the world is turning while he sleeps there

and dreams of secrets and The Keeper
and of the end that's drawing nearer

all that's seen is a Silhouette
you're falling down and you're feeling dead
you feel the end is drawing nearer

the wind is guiding you along the path
the stars are falling from a sky of black
you know the end is drawing nearer

you see, the air is getting clearer
you know the end is drawing near
Track Name: I'm Gone (I'm Gone)
step into the Endless Night
dream about the End Of Time

I'm gone, I'm gone

sunshine warms the air outside
rain falls in a dream at night

I'm gone, I'm gone
Track Name: Mountains Of The Sun
Pt.1: Walking For Miles And Miles

watching the colours
with you by my side

all gone
so long

picking a flower
and seeing you smile

what for
no more

blue sky
stepping outside
walking for miles

wait for the night
walking for miles and miles

Pt. 2: The Mountains Of The Sun

wake up
let the starlight show the way out
light a fire in the night, a beacon burning bright
on the Mountains Of The Sun

watch out
let the moonlight show the way up
choose the path you think is right
don't know what you try to find
at the Mountains Of The Sun
