about

In a town, in a van, there lived a man...

Set in the near future, this latest Medieval-Space-Rock Odyssey, is a Psychedelic Roller-coaster, following the story of William, a lowly ice cream van operator, who inexplicably becomes embroiled in the heist of the personal wealth of the draconian business-magnate Sir Jason Drake.
Opening with the assassination of Drake outside his high-rise London apartment, the album delves into the events leading up to the businessman's shooting.

From Drake's illegal takeover of the Lunar Mining Corporation, to a chance meeting of parties with the anarchist-professor known simply as "G", the story twists and turns revealing the characters' true motivations, culminating with the heartless mogul finally contemplating redemption from his own point in existence.

Dramatis Personæ:
William Small - An Ice Cream Van operator, facing bankruptcy. The foreclosure on his property has lead to transient accommodation in the back of his company's van.
Sir Jason Drake - A ruthless and miserly entrepreneur and head of Sole Industries Ltd.
A Company of Lunar Miners - made recently unemployed by S.I.'s illegal business merger, their resolve for compensation is fuelled further by the collapse of the LMC Worker's Union
"G" - A secretive Sociology teacher with his own agenda
Gordon - Drake's blind 13 year old son, although abandoned at birth, he has recently come into possession of S.I.'s security codes.
Shakespeare - a retired assassin from the Eden Valley in Cumberland

Track Name: The Tale of William Small
A point of existence, that’s all that it is.
A glimpse into our lives, that first perfect kiss.
A journey before me, unexpected and new,
A tale from the old times, a tale I tell true,
A glimpse into our lives, a tale I tell true,
A glimpse into our lives, a tale I tell true.
Track Name: From a Point of Existence (Parts I - V)
== Part I: Obscuration ==
Look to the shadow in the east,
Your pockets emptied by the needy and the weak.
And then the world with shudder, drop you to your knees,
Your life is fading with your power and your greed

It's Just your tears on the ground,
They wash the earth and save it,
It's just the world let you down,
Don't think your heart can take it...
From a point of existence,
From a point of existence.

Was it worth it rich man?
The lives you crushed - the dreams you shattered just the same,
And can you feel the needy write beneath your feet?
You walked all over them - everyone you meet.

It's Just your tears on the ground,
They wash the earth and save it,
It's just the world let you down,
Don't think your heart can take it...
From a point of existence,
From a point of existence.

== Part II: Ascension ==
Death greets you warm, wipe the teardrops from my eyes,
Up above the clouds, you see the world pass by.
And as you walk you see the dark turn into light,
From my point of existence tonight.

Wake up before me, hide starlight from the sky,
Speak to me softly, chase demons from my mind.
Behind the door burns a candle in the night,
From your point of existence tonight.

== Part III: Purgatory ==
It's Just your tears on the ground,
They wash the earth and save it,
It's just the world let you down,
Don't think your heart can take it...
From a point of existence,
From a point of existence.

== Part IV: The Fall ==
Now my time has come - waste my life away
I had lost my way - mind has gone astray
Pennies on my eyes - paying for my life
Ivy on my grave - too late to be saved
Body turned to clay - now you have your way

== Part V: Otherworld ==
A man consumed by greed, held to reason by tragedy.
Treads are woven then torn from the stem,
time an infinite shard sliced between the fire of life and my own existence.
I sleep yet I do not dream - I yearn yet I do not live.

Now you're alone, your days are over
Your last words carved in stone.
A heartless demon - all around you quaked in fear,
No-one holds you near.

Gazing at the sky - and those that wronged you - they know you're gonna die.
A path you followed and it led you to your death - draw your last breath...

It's Just your tears on the ground,
They wash the earth and save it,
It's just the world let you down,
Don't think your heart can take it...
From a point of existence,
From a point of existence.
Track Name: Gathering of the Clouds
In the darkest hour will you see the light?
In the highest tower will you fear the night?
The clouds gather round me,
A veil that steals the dawn
Breathing shades devour,
As when I was born
Feel electrocution dance accross the sky,
A stay of execution looks you in the eye
Now you're coming with me to a time before,
Where the dark things gather,
As when I was born

My eyes before me, see the gathering of the clouds.
Where distant thunder sounds keep me awake.
Will you come meet me by the gathering of the clouds?
Where the shadow of the sky takes me away...

Feel the morning tremble,
Feel the coming storm,
Now my sight defies me,
As when I was born.

Oh Take me away...
Oh please take me away.

My eyes before me, see the gathering of the clouds.
Where distant thunder sounds keep me awake.
Will you come meet me by the gathering of the clouds?
Where the shadow of the sky takes me away...
Track Name: There & Back Again
Will you tell me,
Will you tell me what you think,
Now it sounds crazy,
But i heard it in my dreams
Broke down this morning
Thought I'd missed this long ago
But still this longing
To take the journey seems to grow

Don't wanna be there - not going back again
Got the wind upon my back and the stars up in the sky
Don't wanna be here - not going back again
Where my thoughts are not my own
And the sunrise lights the way back home.

Careless whispers, they will float on through the air
I'm just a drifter, I watch the wind blow through your hair
Heart's disarming - restless nights turn into fears
Well it might sound charming, but don't know how I wound up here.

Don't wanna be there - not going back again
Got the wind upon my back and the stars up in the sky
Don't wanna be here - not going back again
Where my thoughts are not my own
And the sunrise lights the way back home.
Staring at the distance - Visions forming in my mind
And the world will stop from turning - I will leave them all behind
Standing at the crossroads - i don't know which way to turn
There's a road that I must travel and a lesson I must learn

And will you hear me, as you see the morning light
It's just a feeling you see the clouds roll by
You knew it all along but the darkness slips away
From our point of existence today

Do you want me - no I don't believe your lies
Don't betray me - I don't want your reasons why
You're so distant, you have walked these ways before
Now I'm resisting all the life outside my door.

Don't wanna be there - not going back again
Got the wind upon my back and the stars up in the sky
Don't wanna be here - not going back again
Where my thoughts are not my own
And the sunrise lights the way back home.
Track Name: Crestfallen
Dark fields you’ll see,
Your dreams in me,
Nightmares you’ll hear
My screams are near,

In the night there flew a robin,
Floats between the ravens and the sky,
In the night there flew a robin,
Crimson touching heaven here tonight.

Nothing to feel,
This city of steel,
Drowned out the voice,
My pain, your choice,

In the night there flew a robin,
Floats between the ravens and the sky,
In the night there flew a robin,
Crimson touching heaven here tonight.

Time has come to us this night,
Time for us to change our lives,
The beast has been taken low,
All the world will come to know,
We need not to fear at all,
Standing strong we never fall,
All we need to overthrow,
Heed the calling, face the world,
The door that’s shut to underkill,
The light that shines on devils hill,
Coming right to victory,
A ringing chime to set us free,
Free to fight, free this light,
Eye for eye, free to die,

In the night there flew a robin
Floats between the ravens and the sky,
In the night there flew a robin,
Crimson touching heaven here tonight.
Track Name: Monolith
The wind blows,
From far beyond the falling sky,
I see it now,
Don’t fear, don’t fear the mountains side,

No way out,
This Monolith tears at the sky,
I see it now,
Don’t fear; don’t fear the mountains side,

In silence,
The darkness creeps down empty halls,
I see it now,
Don’t fear; don’t fear the mountain’s heart,

I feel it,
The prize that shook the tyrant’s soul,
I have it now,
Don’t fear; don’t fear the mountain’s heart,

I sleep and all my visions flash before my eyes,
I flee am I forgiven, cast into the night,
Some where you read my dreams and know I’ll count the cost,
And know if victory is mine,

That night inside the tower, how will I survive?
The world turned on its head, but made it out alive,
You know your fantasy is all that I believe,
The man you knew is lost in time.
Track Name: From a Point of Existence (Parts VI - X)
== Part VI: Singularity ==
Bind me to infinity to appease the flame divine
To vindicate your ignorance of broken design,
Cast off the sphere of sanity, deny me what you feel,
Corrupt the world with venom from the chalice that you spill,

I Feel the fire in my soul,
it’s not ones who fall down that live the life they deserve
Woah we take the chance, keep on wondering why
Living the life we choose
Leaving the hole in the sky

Recreate my conscience by sanctified decree
As mankind soaks it crimson roots
To bear fruits of deceit
Deliver my requiem from testaments of war,
Bequeath me by the ashes – will it save you from the fall?

I Feel the fire in my soul,
it’s not ones who fall down that live the life they deserve
Woah we take the chance, keep on wondering why
Living the life we choose
Leaving the hole in the sky


== Part VII: Isaiah 38:18 ==
It’s just your tears on the ground
They wash the earth and save it
It’s just the world let you down
don’t think your heart can take it
It’s just a point of existence
It’s a point of existence


== Part VIII: Mooncode ==
Mooncode; I hear the warning deep into the night
Mooncode; I fear the warning showing me the light
You sleep forever, see the visions, you’re calling up another time
You’re week and all this seems forgiven
but now it’s running through your mind

Mooncode; a thief in waiting, marching into war
Mooncode; anticipating bloodshed at my door
You wish the light had never left you
Burning and then fading away
Know this – your lies they all betray you
And now they’re coming back again


== Part IX: Contemplations ==
Life’s so far away – and I have got to go
To find myself or be left alone

A point of existence – that’s all that it is
A glimpse into our lives – that first perfect kiss
A journey behind me, unexpected and new
A tale from the old times – a tale I told true
A glimpse into our lives, a tale I tell true
A glimpse into our lives, a tale I tell true

The tides of change are ebbing from the shore
A farewell apology echoes forevermore

A point of existence – that’s all that it is
A glimpse into our lives – that first perfect kiss
A journey behind me, unexpected and new
A tale from the old times – a tale I told true
A glimpse into our lives, a tale I tell true
A glimpse into our lives, a tale I tell true


== Part X: The Page Turns ==
You say you’re sorry, find peace within your mind
And in the morning you dream under the light
And then the page will turn and you will wake up blind
From this point of existence to night

Breath in the shadows, I think you’ll be alright
It feeds your sorrow, the cold begins to bite
And then you realise you’ve heard it all your life
From your point of existence tonight

Death greets you warm and you wonder why
You’re feeling torn, life before your eyes
It’s just a consequence but you let it slip away
From this point of existence today

And now you hear me, the darkness falls away
You know the feeling, the sunrise turns to grey
And now the clouds will gather, never want to say:
Lost our point of existence today...
