Paul Harding Beautiful album! I've already had several favourite tracks but have settled on Garden as it just soars! The synths swirl into a perfect groove on nearly every track here! And the lyrics are catchy yet still poignant! Wonderful Favorite track: Garden on the Terrace.

Spirit Discovered this group thanks to Communion After Dark Radio and I could not get over how much I could relate to The Balance, came here to listen to the rest and after going through half the album I realized I could relate to the whole album. Incredible find, definitely leaves you wanting more. Favorite track: The Balance.

Track Name: The Balance
VERSE 1
Clothes are scattered on the floor,
and some girl just stole your heart,
Had the gall…. to take it in the night
Take it back, you’ll never feel the sun upon your skin,

VERSE 2
You run your fingers through her hair,
Caress the words and turn the light,
And then the waves, come crashing into you,
She’s falling back, you’ll always crave the moment in her eyes,

CHORUS
Now if you can…take the first turn,
From the heart break… the twist inside,
And just as life…will play it’s worst card first,
There’s a new glow…
on your horizon

BREAK
Whenever the dark takes you down
There’s always the danger you don’t return
Whenever the love, fades to grey
You see an angel, just turn away
Track Name: Black & Red
VERSE1
Between these isometric lines
There’s a thousand ways to bring you back to life
The only colours black and red
I check your vital signs but I can’t heal the dead

VERSE2
Among the unprotected lies
You will fascinate and change my whole design
We play a symbiotic game
One of black and red, but I don’t need the pain

CHORUS
And maybe these scars fade in time?
So we heal, and we grow
As we stand at the edge of the battleground
As I feed, on the antidote
You’re always my danger, danger
The red in my veins, and the poison contained
You always bring fire, fire
The ashes will fall and the damage you caused…around you


OUTRO
…around you
As we heal and grow
The damage you caused
As we heal and grow
The damage you caused
Around you
The damage you caused
Around you
As we heal and grow
Track Name: Into The Sea
VERSE 1
The system fails and burns a hole in you
You recognise your life’s on standby,
The newest chipset brands us beautiful,
Machine assembly, refined materials

VERSE 2
A path defined, a unique serial
The factory default it's nothing personal
Standard features, formed and functional,
Smarter managed and non-emotional

VERSE 3
Now the system deems us dutiful
It seems that all we have is time
Judging what we do and what is suitable
Time directing our own funeral

CHORUS
Wayward souls, we all march in unison,
Some might say, we're almost born in uniform,
We show less emotion now, we are formed and functional,
We’re all smart managed so…watch us walk into the sea
Track Name: Garden on the Terrace
VERSE 1
There’s a rush and then you breathe, and you fall…as you’re told
There’s silence in the trees, like they know, when you’re cold
I’ll guide you from the sorrow, holding tight, when he died
There’s a garden on the terrace, and he smiles as you play (and you sing…)

VERSE 2
So tell me how it feels, when you fall from the sky,
Take me all the way, from the start to the fade,
Curl into a ball, there’s a smile on your face,
You help me understand; with a song that you shared

CHORUS
And the soil you let it fall between your fingers
Now the tears are running dry among the strangers
And I try to fix you
But I suffocate you
The sun is burning high above the garden
The sun is burning high above the garden
I try to fix you (to fix you)
The sun is burning high (it burns high)
I try to fix you (to fix you)
The sun is burning high (it burns high)
I try to fix you
Track Name: The Forest
VERSE 1
Body on body it’s a battlefield
What do you hope?
Whatever can come of this?
What do you hope will grow?

VERSE 2
Growing in, growing down underground
Whatever it takes
and no one to cut you down
The pain won’t carry no sound

CHORUS
Bending and breaking
The earth is now shaking
And we just tower above it all
We tower above it all

Body on body it’s a battlefield
Whatever can come of this?
Track Name: Spirals
VERSE 1
When I left the ring I choked,
Couldn't move, I couldn't sing,
I didn't think I, I didn't think I,
I would ever fight again  

VERSE 2
As tornadoes in the sky,
Uncertain stopping like the storm,
I didn't think love, I didn't think love,
Would fly to me anymore

CHORUS
And if I falter, 
There's nothing here beneath the shallows,
And now it's colder, 
I'm standing prone between the shadows   
   
BREAK
And now we’re here, (and here we are)
We’re the last of the destitute,  
There's no-one there, (so open up) 
I lose my faith on the merry go round
