Andrew Witt Fantastic album from this group that takes you to many different sonic landscapes. Goes above and beyond the standard prog metal trappings. Excellent vocals and instrumentation throughout the musical journey. This group (used loosely as it is pretty much one individual doing it all with some guests musicians) deserves much more attention that it gets. Hard for me to pick a favorite song because the whole album is so damn good! Favorite track: The Island.

Track Name: Penny
Penny for your thoughts
Track Name: The First
Sit back now, here by the shore, I'll tell you my thoughts and nothing more

Take this with you when you walk away, don't trust anyone
The head of a family locked away, he's a spokesman for no one
Fading in, fading out, the king of reason pushing doubt
The man you're hearing talk to you is the man we're shutting out

I was in control until the others walked away
and then the war came
One fight for words between many voices
Now I'm left with only this one

Yeah, I hear them at the door
You may not want to be here anymore
Yeah I hear them mocking me
Taunting again and passing through my soul

Who is this passer by, with smiling eyes,
asking her treacherous questions
Devious succubus, transformation wanderer
please walk away!

You wanna know? You wanna know me?

I walk these lands amongst the spirits of war. Every war that was and will be. Witnessed only by curious tree tops dancing carefree in the western wind. For they, the smell of death breeds content whilst staring at the horizon for a thousand years. Where kings and queens roamed as children hunting the earth for their souls. And although they are gone, their memories live with me, forever.

Come to the earth goddess of rain. Can you spare some tears from me?
Track Name: Life, Lore, & Love
Life & Lore, gordian god of winter
Keeper of the holy wells of time
Cold coming in, from distances beyond us
Everything you say, from this entire day
Is already gone

No matter what he says to you
He'll never bring us back anew
With the fleetman on his way, and the ships he guides to bay
Defending our freedom
We are more than corners in a mind
But the wells will run thin, if you begin this long long journey

Come back now, don't be afraid
You've been running wild
Come back now, make us whole again
I've been wondering where I've been

Come to the earth oh godess of rain
Can you spare some tears for me?
Come to the earth now godess of rain
Spare some tears

Yeah...this is a dark place. I am a dark place. Go ahead, bring the rain.
You wanna know? YOU WANNA KNOW ME!!!"

Los fuegos de las mazmorras del infierno forjaron mi corazón conocido como el color de la ausencia. Es un lugar de verdad, paz y 10 mil jardines sin semillas en un cosmos unico. Y es todo tuyo
[TRANSLATION]
The fires of hell's dungeon forged my heart into a shape known as the color of absence. It is a place of truth, peace, and ten thousand seedless gardens in a singular cosmos. And it's all yours!

I've got my own life, it's in my name
I use this face to preach my words
If you only knew the demands on me
Gaurding seasons, finding reasons for sacred water

Darkness falls near this heart
Defending hands of love pushing hard

I will not forget
When we were one instead

Life, Lore, and Love in harmony
I will not forget
Track Name: Secrets
I've got something...It says... Destroyer!

I've travelled long roads a long way from home
I've never known anyone to be my friend
I know I'm only one of many faces
When the walking man kicked the sand we left the old land

I know secrets
never to be said

I've worked hard to rule in this empty land
You've been told many things and never heard of where I come from
Barren earth far from the sea
where hopes are few and wanderers never leave

I know secrets

Come to me
Bring all your possesions
Come to me
There's nothing to fear
Like a ghost in the silence
staking out your soul
Like a ghost in the silence
Come here

A trained assissin who kills at the crest of dawn
Poison or power straight to the heart
Nations counting on his mission goals
Don't you ask, it'll be the last thing you know

I know secrets
never to be said

Moving to stage Delta One...final phase
rotation
Track Name: The Traveler
I'm a traveler in need
Making my way best I can
Cobblestone streets, England
When that bell rang there was work for me
Ships they moved on, me too
Promised wealth in Africa
When the world was shattered
Currents carried me

Something is calling me home!

I've been away too long, the bells of London call me
I'm seeing every part of the world and I'm waking up, I'm waking up
Still I can hear those drums of Africa deep in my head
I'm seeing every part of the world and I'm waking up

I'm a traveler in need
Short term memory gone away
Still remember Peru
I was teaching history to those who already knew
I recall a miracle in the city of Pompeii
I found my way to the city gates on a crazy cloudy day

Something is calling me home!

I've been away too long, the pull of Peru is in me
I'm seeing every part of the world and I'm waking up yes I'm waking up
Still I can see that haze, the gods of pompeii were speaking out
I'm seeing every part of the world and I'm waking up

Now I've told you where I've been, my friend
So when will you pull me out, I'm tired of sailing, tired of walking
Will you tell me where you've been, while I've lived this life
I'm coming home again, I'm waking up

Stay with me
Track Name: Court Of Ancient Rulers
We are immortal, kill us if you can

Walked away from our home
In his mind he ruled the throne
Married to his conscious soul
Concubines, we never had control
Too much souless sunshine
Holding back our real lives
With speed and sound, journeyed right out of his life

I've been waiting way too long
Been trying to find these words to bring you all back home
I've been waiting way too long
Been trying to find these words

We are the blood of time
We are the judges of youth and beyond
Your crimes against our kind
Require that you take the poison tea

We are here, we sing songs
Moonlight rage, midnight calls
No more you, you are lost

The court of ancient rulers judge you to be spurious
Imposter of emotion and General of the unreal
The day of detonation scattered our voices far from you
Tell her what you're gonna do

I've been waiting way too long
Trying to find the words to bring you home
I've been waiting way too long
Trying to find you all again
Track Name: Mr. Compromise
I am, the one you want to know
Ask me anything and I will tell them
My whisper echoes everywhere they go
Arbitrator of the mind and soul

I beg for outcomes unheard of
I plead for things I'm not sure of
One day all sides may agree to love
Say you will and this ends

I live in middle ground
Where the mind's always moving against the world
Faces and personalities
All sides defending the voices coming in

I beg for outcomes unheard of
I plead for things I'm not sure of
One day all sides may agree to love
Say you will and this ends

Searching for you, stumbling through night
Scaling cliff sides, wondering where you hide
Searching for you, meddling for light
Probing for life, seeking where you hide
Searching for you
Track Name: The Island
I'm trapped on this Island, safe here, away from the world
I'm trapped on this island, insane here with no one around

I'm trapped...I'm trapped on this...
I'm trapped...I'm trapped on this island

I will break free from the island
I will break free from the island
I will break free from the island
I will break free from the island

I sail upon cold waters, I've been in hell too long

Black skies remain at dawn, they know I'm gone
Sheltered asylum night, make it I might

I was wrong, it's just not that simple
Shutting out the others in me
Will you come to me, we can fix the circle
The circle of who we are and what is me

Calling out to every corner, wild regions far away
If I make it to the old land, I'm ready to breathe with you again

I will break free from the island
I will break free from the island
Into the sea away from the island
I must break free from the island
Track Name: Lighthouses
We are all in this game, when we all fall down
I know your different and I'm coming around
Take me with you where you go, as long as we're the same
We've all travelled a long long way

I'm too alone to lead this life
Meet my soul in the ocean night
Turn this tide from the island tonight
Pining, into the night, looking for lighthouses now

The words came out of nowhere
When they want to run, let 'em go
When you know they're in you somewhere
You'll be whole again with your peace of mind

TIme and tide moving again, old friends are coming home
Eventhough we live such different lives
Some of them are evil and some are over-achievers
But all of them are joining hands tonight

I'm too alone to lead this life
Meet my soul in the ocean night
Turn this tide from the island tonight
Pining, into the night, looking for lighthouses now

The words came out of nowhere
When they want to run, let 'em go
When you know they're in you somewhere
You'll be whole again with your peace of mind

The words came out of nowhere
When they want to run, let 'em go
I know they're in me somewhere
Thank you my dearest friend, Mr. Compromise

Pieces of me have been to, Africa and Peru
To Pompeii and old London too
I was the keeper of the wells of time
A ghostly line in a winter's rhyme
I am new
Track Name: Agent Unknown
Thank you stranger, for helping me find my way
I think it's time that I find home 'cause I feel okay
I'm fine walking these long roads with all of them by my side
'Cause this is who I am for the rest of my life
