Echoes From The Past

On Friday December 3, I’ll be launching a brand new group of lyrics on the site.

 

Written over the past year, Between The Night And Day is made up of 13 new titles. The grouping focuses on confronting the past, how time reshapes perceptions of it and where that ultimately leads us. It also draws heavily on previous events as inspiration.

 

Preceding next year’s Diurnal, Between The Night And Day continues a trilogy started with 2018’s Nocturnal. Below is the order in which lyrics will appear on December 3. Beneath that is a preview of what to expect with something called Echoes From The Past.

Lyrics

 

With nothing else but false intent

There’s still no end to what’s in sight

You couldn’t cheat these future plans

As every chance collapsed in time

 

Lost In words you’ve always feared

Between your ears to disobey

Some echoes from the past returned

Informed to yearn for yesterday

 

Gas masks on, we run outside

There’s nowhere left for us to hide

While everybody speaks their minds to play them back again

 

Stretching out to fill the space

Beyond regret for what’s embraced

Until you get a little taste, it’s hard to understand

 

In planning for the noise that comes

Your senses numb to what’s transpired

Obsessed with thoughts evading you

Now cutting through the rising fire

 

Storming down these empty halls

From curtain calls you’ll disavow

Those razor wires that still protrude

They’ve all confused their purpose now

 

Gas masks on, we run outside

There’s nowhere left for us to hide

While everybody speaks their minds to play them back again

 

Stretching out to fill the space

Beyond regret for what’s embraced

Until you get a little taste, it’s hard to understand

 

Our echoes from the past return, ignored with any true concern

Recounting what we chose to burn and shed along the way

 

Our echoes from the past return, with lessons that we’ll never learn

Despite the things you might have heard, there’s nothing else to say

 

Gas masks on, we run outside

There’s nowhere left for us to hide

While everybody speaks their minds to play them back again

 

Stretching out to fill the space

Beyond regret for what’s embraced

Until you get a little taste, it’s hard to understand

 

Our echoes from the past, echoes from the past

Echoes from the past again

 

Our echoes from the past, echoes from the past

Echoes from the past again
