Bradley Rust A really strong take on a sound that is tried by many but rarely is the mark hit. Quite often when bands take a little from many different styles it results in one or two strong tracks and the rest filler. This album though can hold your attention throughout. It's dark, unpredictable and definitely unique. Something you need to be in the right mood for, but when you are, headphones on, crank it, close your eyes and it'll be a trip you remember. Very talented musicians. Give it a few spins. Favorite track: Sowing Scorn.

Track Name: Magical Thinking
I am so bold, I let my self unfold
I keep I hold, the greatest lie untold
Don't cross my path, becareful of my wrath
Because I'm dreadful and I'm torn
You'd wish you weren't born

Can't feel what's real, I'm falling down - I'm standing still

I am a god, not wosrhiped thus I'm sad
I am feeling bad, role model for the mad
Don't treat me well cause I'll prepare your living hell
Because I'm dreadful thought I'll haul
Through the entrance to your soul

Distorted, disordered
Track Name: Point of You
Living, I'm still breathing
Through the love that I'm giving
For-giving is receiving
our own fates we are weaving

When I look at you
I sense what's there of me
Step away from the sun
Show me what's left to see

Seeing is not believing
Looks are often deceiving
Lying is just denying
Drying the rivers I am crying

When I look at you
I feel what's there of me
Step away from the sun
Show me what's left to see

And I am going down, I'm going down, down, down...

Thinking, in thoughts sinking
Plant your seed, grow the linking
Spider clothe web wider
To obtain ugly reminder

When I look at you
I get what's there of me
Step away from the sun
Show me what's left to see
Track Name: Sowing Scorn
Run, head for the sun
Test what you've done
Get rid of the man
Quit building on sand

Fear no one that's clear
Wipe off your tear
Have eyes on your rear
Watch who you draw near

And it feels that you haven't moved along
That the ties are so strong
And it seems that your self left you lorn
Blowing your own horn

Look, look what you've done
Can't hide, yet can run
For everything shows under the sun

Say, say what you feel
'Cause time won't stand still
Stop looping the reel
Your image to kill

Though the time seems won't reach us any more
Lady luck isn't whore
Even though I'm washed to your shore
I'm breathing it (with) every pore

Wide (is) the blame on your side
Kill your false pride
Reveal what you hide
Wherever you lied

Real is what you feel
Unfasten the seal
Look onto next deal
No longer to steal

Though it feels that you haven't moved along
That the ties are so strong
And it seems that your self left you lorn
Tasting your own scorn
Track Name: Amethyst
And then
Light will shine bright again
It will show us the lane
We'll learn...

Till when
Will we stay with that burn
Making straight every turn
And I yearn

Of being free
To touch what's kept for me
Flowing in that sea
Bearing the Amethyst key

The rain
Will help wash of the stain
What's not broke under strain

Still dying in creed
Spent what's left of me
To make you see
And pass you the Amethyst key
Track Name: Remnants (of a Former Worry)
You say love, is sent from above
It worths all the crying,
For someone to die

And I feel, feel...

Time has flown, found me abandoned, alone
Left me reading between
Lies, remembering what's been

But I still feel, feel...
Track Name: Wake Up Call
The wake up call, will shock you all,
I hope you won't break when you fall

Your eyes must see, the tendencies
The hidden truths washed off the sea

Hear me, don't fear (of) me
I'm just a friend you've long forgot

It's grown in size, you've circumcised -
Your dreams - were exchanged with cheap lies

You lived your years beneath your fears
No more to cry reptilian tears

Deal with me, don't kill me
Take your hands from my wounds and heal me

Hear me, don't fear (of) me
I'm just a friend you've long forgot

Sweet sound pleases my soul
Thank God for the wake up call

It's time to wake, the spell to break
No more the sense of real to shake

It's time to rise go wash your eyes
And witness how your false self dies

Grow strong stand tall
Un-pause your life start to roll
The sound pleases my soul
Thank God for the wake up call
Track Name: Reprise
I'm falling high once again
Like a wind lifted small grain
Though I can't wipe off the stain
I'm keeping up with the strain

Though the time seems won't reach me any more
Lady luck's not a whore
Even though I am washed to your shore
Breathe me by every pore

I'm climbing down once again
Crying this endless rain
I'm moving backwards the same lane
Tearing (apart) the veil of shame

Though it feels that I haven't moved on
That the ties are so strong
And it seems that my self is left forlorn
Bleeding by every pore
Track Name: Homeseek Dark Blues
I am alone again,
The home I long has led me wrong,
Dragged me to descend

On the road again
Dying to be freed, I’m diving deep
Craving to be enchained

Stand to what's shown again
My mind is gone, to where it belongs
Dead drunk from abstain

(And) then in time again
But then again there is no gain
The essence screams repent

It +feels life kneels
Before the fire, meld with desire

It seems blind seems
Plug your wire, sending you higher

Then I am alone again,
What I've longed for has done me wrong,
Dragged me to this end

On the road again
And then again, there was no gain
I've bitterly repent
Track Name: Birthday Song
So it's your birthday and you’ve made it so far
You have smoked and been to a bar

You had sex, you got to drive cars
You bought friends, you've reached for a star

BUT who are you,
Happy birthday to who?

Now isn't too late
to control of your fate

Looking back will show (you) what defines you
If your deeds were of made up needs

Was it all then just a reaction?
Were you biting the hand that it feeds... The real you

Who are you?
Happy birthday to who
What's the matter with you
