about

This album basically emerged from the sounds of the instrument seen on the cover - a modified electric guitar mounted on a stand with mechanical foot tremolo and acoustic sustainer. The sounds from this particular instrument are brought together with software based arrangements using Reason.

As usual, the recording and mixing could/should be better, nevertheless the ideas and atmospheres are still there - and thats what music is mostly about for me.

Just in case anyone who downloads this is interested ... the bonus cover booklet design was developed to be cut and folded from a single A3 sheet to make a self-contained CD case and booklet ... you might need some origami lessons though!

Track Name: The Fallen
december
and we marched through the snow
and as the sky lit up around us, we fell
We all fell, under enemy fire.

and as I lie here now, I watch my friends.
my comrades, my fellow men

some fall like stones
some like stars from the sky
some like autumn leaves
some like tears

we all fall . . . but we don't all fall alike.
Track Name: Don't Look Down
the histories of all the pawns and kings
lie washed up on the shores of time
the tide retreats taking everything
everything it doesn't leave behind

so don't look down
don't look down

it'll swallow you whole
it'll swallow us al
Track Name: Only Child
Today you have become
my one
my one and only child
my comfort, my delight
my warmth now I am old

I need you now
I'll crush you to me
like a dull blade pressed
too close
until I'm bleeding

You've been my haven
but its all a thin disguise
I see you now a raven
a phantom bird with hungry eyes
You bring my meat
you bring me my poison
your crooked tongue
your crooked little beak
your crooked claws in
my wasted flesh, my dying bones
you're my private devils
my guardian angels
Track Name: Tonight (we shine)
Tonight
we shine
so brief,
so bright
so shine...
shine.
