DiZ (1/3 of Still Life With Cat) Once someone told it’s next level when people sing your song in the shower. Well done melodywhore you’re on the right way, your song is now “humming” in my head ;) Favorite track: hum.

Pretty Glass Folk I've been excited to give it a listen through and write this. As I sit here listening to Darklight, I hear thunder sounding in the distance coming to engulf the sunshine on the hottest day of the year. Haunting synths from the title track and a certain etherial vibe from the vocals provide a perfect accompaniment to the changing weather. And I absolutely love it. Thanks MW! Favorite track: darklight.

Track Name: darklight
darklight

i dreamt a dream of blue
icey archways cascade over me
somethings i always knew
somethings you have to see
you once had a dream, too
was it not what you wanted it to be
i tried hard being the glue
but you wanted to be free

feathers on the shadow spire
i called your secret name
my soul engulfed in fire
who am i to claim
something sacred

i’ve never been forgiving
i want to do what it takes
i wouldn’t call it living
when all of my faces are fakes
you once had a dream too
was it not what you hoped it could be
everything i wished i knew
never occurred to me

feathers on the shadow spire
i called your secret name
my soul engulfed in fire
who am i to claim
something sacred

i spoke an alien tongue
i held a star at first light
but all of those songs are sung
darkness closes the night
but all of those wrongs are done
darkness cancels the light
Track Name: sister sinister
sister sinister

something is turning
what do i know
did you ever know me
did it ever show

phases are breaking
clear as a bell
truth is a dirty lie
and we’re all going straight to hell

sister sinister sixteen and bone
that’s why you’re always alone

the seed is yearning
in this endless time flow
did you ever care
i think i’ve always known

sister sinister sixteen and bone
that’s why you’re always alone

what the broken world has shown
i think i’ve always known
Track Name: the after-dark
the after-dark

i fell into that dark place
where i saw your face
put the lights inside your eyes

tonight
i pray to you
bare my soul
the shadows renew

i led you down across the sky
with a shine that made the angels cry
pull the darkness around you

tonight
i pray to you
bare my soul
the shadows renew

before you died
you spoke these lines
kiss my lips and drink the wine
the fire in my heart burns
the pain is divine
and then in a brilliance,
a flash of light
you disappeared from sight

close your eyes sweet child
you will be home soon

tonight
i pray to you
bare my eternal soul
the shadows renew
