Hold on As the wind below the sun Shatters in the night Leave Behind Leave it all behind And your wish can be done I am certain That the wind blows In the night Thats all I’m told Way before we changed our mind We leave it all behind Hold on Hold on, now wait I’m sure this time Go on, leave me alone Just go. See the window, Take it off Count the night That’s all Take it or leave it Way before we changed our mind We leave it all behind
Start again Reach it in the end Turn away Taking all the love I earned Yesterday Everything was painted grey Run away On this road I own If love comes first Within our insides, Then I’ll drown here alone Let’s pretend Everything is crystal clear, In the end Don’t show your face round here
I’ve calmed down The reason for my Leaving this town Oh I understand Now more than ever I leave here tonight Exit out the window Even though the door is open By your hand Chasing me down Oh, they surround the exit Faced with a crowd Empty eyes stare down Oh, if there only was a way back home Tear Tear me down Hopeful now. Let Let me out
Yes, I know Let me go Run me round Don’t make a sound (It’s a lot to learn) Hear the sound of the drone And you’re on your own (only dreaming) Of your returning
Oh, I’m awake Sign me up Sign me up Oh, please Help me How long? How long am I to wait? I feel it grow within me Help me please before I fall asleep (Sleep, for you’re awake) How long? How long am I to wait? I feel your understanding, So lighten up Its not enough I’ve made my mind up (Sleep, for you’re awake) Pay no mind Save it all for another time How long? How long am I to wait? If it still grows within me Help me please I’m down here on my knees (Sleep, for you’re awake) How long? How long? Is it too late? In this space around me I’ve given up I’ve had enough I switched my mind off (Sleep, for you're awake) Pay no mind Save it all for another time (Sleep, for you’re awake)


As an audio engineer, I never really thought about being an artist, but I wanted to mix music that was reminiscent of bands that I enjoyed listening to (so you'll hear influences from DTP and Ayreon no doubt)...

Living in the middle of nowhere, it was near impossible to find local metal bands of that style, so I just decided to do everything myself (as you do..)!

It was quite an isolating experience, I had to overcome the struggle of having no other musicians bringing forward fresh ideas. But I loved it - I can't wait to make more music an 'artist'.

So that's the story. Everything you see and hear was created by me in my home studio. A mammoth challenge which I hope paid off!
