about

Shades of Light & Darkness is an album that showcases different musical genres and moods. It relates to different aspects of human life such as the sense of wonder, growing up, longing for a long lost friend, dealing with a troubled relationship, success and failure, dealing with insomnia, the immensity of the universe, fighting for your dreams and more. Each one of the songs inhabits a unique sound world. Some songs are lighter in tone and others darker, hence the title Shades of Light & Darkness.

Track Name: Sunday
Sunday
Nothing changes
The children playing in the park

Sunday
Conscience fading
Daydreaming somewhere in the dark

A dream without colors
Awakening horrors
Will it end?

So take my hand
And stay with me
Please rest with me
Don't ever leave

Sunday
Red stream pouring
I lay down motionless
Sunday
Calm and quiet
I'm fading into nothingness

To hell with tomorrow
I'm drowning in sorrow
I'm ending this

So take my hand
And stay with me
Please rest with me
I'm so sorry
Will you ever forgive me?
Track Name: Cloud Zero
Feel the air
Flowing
And see the clouds
Burning

Reach higher
Desire
Rewire
See things through

Think wider
Inspire
Acquire
Ways to reach
Cloud Zero
Ways to reach
Cloud Zero
Ways to reach
Cloud Zero
Ways to reach
Cloud Zero
Track Name: Something Beautiful
What if I say
What I'm feeling
Isn't real
And it never was

What if I say
This is wrong
I'm not kidding
And I never was

Things won't be the same

What if I say
You're not the one
I thought I loved
Deep down in my heart

What if I say
I am done with this
Would you hate me?
Would you even care?

Maybe it never was
Something
Something beautiful

It crashed and burned
In the end
Oh something
Something beautiful

You had to screw up
Everything

(solo)

Why would I try to pretend
And let my love go to waste
I'd rather give my heart to someone else

This isn't something
Something beautiful
It crashed and burned
Anyway

Maybe it never was something
Something beautiful
You had to screw up
Everything

I'm leaving you, this is the end
I'm leaving you, this is the end
I'm leaving you, this is the end
Track Name: Far Away
For so long
Far and wide
I've been searching
I've been searching

A place to be
Full of light
Out of reach
Far from here

Beyond what I see
Beyond what I dream
Beyond what I see

Far away

For so long
I know
I've been trying
I've been trying

To be alone
To be free
Out of reach
Far from here

Beyond what I see
Beyond what I dream
Beyond what I see
Track Name: Ocean Drop
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Nebula
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Sepia Leaves
In the distance
Floating out to sea
There's a man
Trying not to sink
To sink

In the shadows
Praying out to God
There's a priest
Trying to believe
Believe

Lost souls
Falling down

Free me
I'm trying to be
All I can be
Free me
I'm wasting away
Like sepia leaves

In the dark room
reaching for a pen
There's a writer
Drowning in his words
His words

In the cellblock
Locked inside a cage
There's a killer
Waiting for the end
The end

Lost souls
Falling down

Free me
I'm trying to be
All I can be
Free me
I'm wasting away
Like sepia leaves

(interlude)
(solo)
Track Name: Restless
Here I am
Alone again
Cold in bed
I wait for her

Here I am
It's late again
Restless eyes
Won't find sleep
This time

Tonight
Tonight

Here I am
Awake and tired
I'm not
As strong as I thought
I was

Without you
Without you

Keep me safe from myself
Keep me safe from myself
Keep me safe from myself
Keep me safe from myself
Track Name: Child
Wake up child
Time to go
Hear me child
No time
For tears

Mother always said
You're only wasting time
Enjoy it while it lasts
Then walk in a straight line

It all ends here
So quit your dreams
It all ends here
So quit your dreams

Get up child
Stop chasing stars
Give up child
Let your mind
Go numb again

Mother I'm so sorry
I won't do it again
I will stop trying
And give you what you want

And I'll stay here
Forgetting dreams
And I'll stay here
Forgetting dreams
And I'll stay here
Forgetting dreams
And I'll stay here
Forgetting dreams

Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh

Forgetting dreams
And I'll stay here
Forgetting dreams
And I'll stay here
Forgetting dreams
And I'll stay here
Forgetting dreams

Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh
Track Name: Let Go
Walking down the road
Through empty black fields
I can see myself
Getting disconnected

Relationships gone
I'm on my own now
All the usual things
Sort of faded away

And now as I sit here
At the edge of my bed
It's time to move on
But I just don't want to let go

Let go
Let go
Let go

Fear as it comes
Don't let it take you down
Sadness as it comes
Don't let it take you down
Hatred as it comes
Don't let it take you down

Just let it all go
Let it all go
Let it all go
Let it all go

I feel this wretched guilt
Deep inside my heart
And it seems to me
That I'm going under

And now as I stand here
Half buried in sand
It's time to move on
But I just don't wanna let go

Let go
Let go
Let go now

Fear as it comes
Don't let it take you down
Sadness as it comes
Don't let it take you down
Hatred as it comes
Don't let it take you down

Just let it all go
Let it all go
Let it all go
Let it all go
Track Name: So Close Yet So Far Away
Rain
Fall down
And fill
My heart
For happiness
Is just a shadow
In my past

Pain
Come to me
And stay
Burn me deep
For loneliness
Is my companion
In these times

Ahhh

Love
Bleeds inside
And tears me apart
You are so close
Yet you are
So far away

Ahhh

I'm trying hard to see
I'm trying hard to reach you
Uhhh
Reach you
Uhhh
Reach you
Uhhh Uhhh

Rain
Falling down
I stay
Arms stretched out
Imagining
Your happy face
Like yesterday

Pain
It goes away
I feel
The warmth so close
I hug the void
As the train slips away
Track Name: Endless Days
Here I am at the sea
Memories in my mind
The cold sends chills
Down my spine
I say goodbye
We will meet again

Feeling the mystery
Of all things unseen
I'm going alone
To seek my destiny

Endless days
Passing by
I'm still searching for my soul
Endless days
Passing by
I have to find the meaning of it all
Endless days
Passing by
Passing by

Here I am
In deep waters
My past life so behind
I cannot see the light
It's no good
Will this ever be the way I wanted?

Feeling the mystery of all things unseen
My spirit is driven to find its destiny

Endless days
Passing by
I'm still searching for my soul
Endless days
Passing by
I have to find the meaning of it all
Endless days
Passing by
Passing by

(solo)

No matter how hard I try
I can't see beyond what's in front of me
But I will keep trying 'till my heart beats no more

The sun is hiding
And nighttime arrives
This longing for happiness
Is carved deep in my heart
I will find my soul
Somehow
Someday

Endless days
Passing by
I'm still searching for my soul
Endless days
Passing by
I have to find the meaning of it all
Endless days
Passing by
Passing by

(solo)
