about

Basically this album is an offshoot of the previous 'Dragonfly' album ... it draws a lot from the live looping and material recorded around that time.

Whereas 'Dragonfly' restrained itself to the exploration of looped sounds and textures from a single instrument, this collection of songs, while growing out of that same base (lots of tapping, loops and ebow), intentionally moves in another direction ... incorporating various instruments and voice along the way.

Track Name: dream on (original version)
dream on
all you dreamers
dont you let them take away your dreams
and don't forget to
breath on
keep on breathing
gotta keep your head above the water

dig deep and keep
your feet on the ground
keep your head on your shoulders
way up there in the clouds

you know you've got to keep on moving
just one foot behind the other
come on I know you can do it now

dream on
all you dreamers
dont you let them take away your dreams
and don't forget to breathe
breath on
keep on breathing
gotta keep your head above the water
now you know
youv'e got to keep on moving
Track Name: glorious days of revolution
do you recall the day
we came home victorious
flying so high
such a bright shining glorious
future ahead
i remember you said

we are brave we are young
no man shall take from us
what we have won
with our own blood and gun
we'll keep this world free

but we kept for ourselves
the freedom
that we should have given away
theres times
now more frequent
i'm tempted to say
i want no more part in this game

Just look at us now
take a look at what we've become
behind the disguise
all these lies
and now i despise it all
and i despise myself
Track Name: i the sun
out there somewhere
theres a teacup in a storm
there are molehills in the distance
and i've got mountains in my lawn
theres a little boy crying with a tall glass of milk
there are tears in his eyes
but theres no milk been split
its just so hard to get it all right
when your ears can't see what your eyes can hear
there too much wind and light

i the sun
the one the only
i shine on all of those below me
though sometimes up here i get to feel so lonely
i know that i must shine

from up here i can see for miles
so clearly for miles all around
and you all seem so small
like i could crush you all between my fingertips

and i laugh cos i'm so tall
laughing as i fall
i can see it all so clearly
so clearly
so briefly
i can everything
Track Name: the hand
there is a hand
its a hand that will break you and bruise you
a hand that will bring you down
will take you and melt you in the crucible
theres a hand and an eye

there is a hand
its a hand that will hold you and heal you
a hand that will lead you home
will take you in and clothe you and feed you
the same hand
the same eye
Track Name: mumble
some say our days are short and are numbered
they say that our world will surely soon crumble
i've heard it suggested that one must crawl to be humble
like you gotta keep your ear low
to hear god lest he mumble

but as for me
its for these words that I fumble
to say that I love
that i want to love
that i want to be free to love
that i want to be set free
to love
