Purity 05:31
Take my last breath again Fall from grace then begin Final moments are foreseen Time left with you was always a dream Countless hours remain Slow to come but fast away Hear the calling, the beyond Memories fading into the song Gone away, the innocence of the purity you shine Far away and out of time You so perfectly shine.

Deep in the moment of dawn burns a blistering sun Behind every plan lies potential for all to come undone First come the calm breeze then rise the powerful storm And under each whisper a tortured soul cry on and on Momentum builds momentum It's coming Sewn in the fabric of order a chaos awaits The puppet on string pulled by hand still a victim of Fate Every intention only the reflection will judge And time slips away on and on; it always does Momentum builds momentum It's coming It's coming It's coming Storm!

Submotion 08:49
My prison of passion The last escape of emotion Subconscious confession A lullaby of possession Here we go again... The passion Obsession Here we go again... Falling I'm falling Somewhere in here is where I stand Somewhere under the man I am, you can love me again The dream has become everything.

about

Back when this project was rebooted in 2018, someone once asked me if it meant I would start writing again. I was shocked and immediately responded with "I've already said everything I want to say". Of course, inspiration struck even before the first EP was released in the form of "The Smile". Now, after completing 2 EPs of the original material, I've been able to shift focus to the present and say what I need to in the form of these 5 tracks.

"Cavity" was the first. This rendition of a personal favorite by Christian Death really means a lot to me. It is my attempt to convey an element of the original I've always felt as being somewhat understated. R.I.P. Rozz Williams. I'd like to think he'd appreciate this version.

Next was "Purity". This track came together quickly as it was very inspired.

"Submotion" is what happens after years of obsessing on strategic thinking skills while living in a survival mindset. One wonders where all the genuine emotion went only to find it in sleep. No longer is there a need to distinguish between nightmare and dream; it's all the same. Any and all emotion experienced in this state is raw, genuine, and addictive. The dream becomes everything.

Still in a particular frame of mind, I found myself writing "The Coming Storm". The lyrics really capture the essence of this project and pay tribute to everything I struggle with. It feels good to have hit the nail on this particular head.

Finally, just like "Cavity", I wanted to re-express "Purity" in order to zero in on a particular POV. This one came together very fast.

As always, a huge thanks goes to producer Charlie Nieland for all the contributions and guidance.

The material is personal and the plan at this time is to release 3 EPs covering the body of work. ... more
