Michael Foster This album has a modern dark synth style with retro influences. While it has a retro sound, it's certainly not a recycled copy cat like you hear with so many other synth projects. I recommend this for anyone who wants to be in from the beginning on an exciting new artist. The Women In Chains cover is exceptional. What a ballsy song to cover. Also fantastic are Into The Unknown, Forest Light, Bend The Light, Video Girl and She Drove Away. Favorite track: Into the Unknown.

Track Name: Other Lives
[Verse]

Into the world
They are given a life
Into existence
Then gone in the night

[Chorus]

Other lives before us and
Other lives to come
Other lives that need us
Then the other lives are gone

(on the highway)

[Verse]

I feel the spark
In your fingers tonight
Where have they gone
Have they given to fly?

[Chorus]

Other lives before us
Other lives to come
Other lives that need us
Then the other lives are gone

Other lives that take away
Other lives they've wronged
Other lives that reappear
Where the other lives belong

[Bridge]

Out on the highway
We are not alone
There's something here
In front of me tonight
There's something alive

[Chorus]

Other lives before us
Other lives to come
Other lives that need us
Then the other lives are gone

Other lives that take away
Other lives they've wronged
Other lives that reappear
Where the other lives belong

(On the highway)
Track Name: Forest Light
[Verse]

Follow the soul
I want you to know
That I need you now

Terrible lie
World is on fire
Will they burn it down?

Tear it apart
Tear up the heart
When the tears run dry

You say that I'm numb
That I never want
But I need you now

[Chorus]

In a photograph of the forest light
You and I alive, we will live forever
You will never die in a photograph
You and I alive in the forest light

[Verse]

Follow the soul
Where does it go?
In another life

When others remain
To carry the weight
In the darkest night

Feel it alone
I want you to know
That I'm with you now

We're under the stars
The sun and the moon
And I need you now

[Chorus]

In a photograph of the forest light
You and I alive, we will live forever
You will never die in a photograph
You and I alive in the forest light

[Bridge]

I want you to know
I carry the weight of all you know
I want you to know
You're not alone

[Verse]

The world isn't real
I wanted to feel you one more time
Float into space
Behind the moon
To the darkest side

[Chorus]

In a photograph of the forest light
You and I alive, we will live forever
You will never die in a photograph
You and I alive in the forest light

In a photograph of the forest light
You and I alive, we will live forever
You will never die in a photograph
Of you and I alive
Track Name: On Mercy Street
[Verse]

I've walked the streets of loneliness
I've walked the streets of pain
I've walked the streets of terror
In the rain

[Chorus]

On mercy street
On mercy street
On mercy street

[Verse]

When all the streets were underwater
When all the skies were grey
When all the lives were stolen
And carried away

[Chorus]

On mercy street
On mercy street
On mercy street

[Verse]

I've walked the streets of no order
I've walked the streets of lies
I've walked the streets of hunger in her eyes

I've walked the roads covered in poison
I've walked the streets above
I've walked the streets where love was never enough

[Chorus]

On mercy street
On mercy street
On mercy street

[Outro]

I've walked the streets of loneliness
And I've walked the streets of pain
And I've walked the streets of terror
And I've walked the streets of rain

When all the streets were underneath
When all the skies were grey
When all the lives were stolen
And carried away

I've walked the streets of loneliness
And I've walked the streets of pain
And I've walked the streets of terror
And I've walked the streets of rain
Track Name: World of Lies
[Verse]

You sell the lie
One more time
The television lines
Have left you blind

Contemplate
The world at large
A million lives
Were taken before their time

[pre Chorus]

But you are here
And we are alive
They sell the fear
In a world of lies

[Chorus]

A world of lies
A world of lies

[Verse}

You sell the lie
Two more times
Without a name
There's no one left to blame

The gold divides
The money lies
The greed is written
All over your face

[pre Chorus]

But you are here
And we are alive
They sell the fear
In a world of lies

[Chorus]

A world of lies
A world of lies
A world of lies

[bridge]

I'll follow you
Into the night
Forevermore
Forever

[pre Chorus]

But you are here
And we are alive
They sell the fear
In a world of lies

[Chorus]

A world of lies
A world of lies
A world of lies
Track Name: She Drove Away
[Verse]

How does it feel to die?
The emptiness inside her eyes
There's no tears left to cry
But she drove away again

On the 85
There's no more time left to waste
The California night
Will take her far away from me

And I don't mind
Losing everything I own
To save her from the sea
Before she drives away again

[Chorus]

She drove away
She drove away

[Verse]

All the lonely ghosts
Driving down the interstate
The waves along the coast
There's nothing more left to say

And how does it feel to die?
The emptiness inside her eyes
There no tears left to cry
She drove away again

[Chorus]

She drove away
She drove away
She drove away
She drove away
Track Name: Fire in the City
[Verse]

You are the flame
I am the water
If you run away
I would run after you

There's a fire in the city
There's a fire in the city

Tear down the walls
Burn the house down
There's no one to blame
There's no one left around

When there's a fire in the city
There's a fire in the city
There's a fire in the city

[Chorus]

Rain on this town
Our love's like water
I wanna drown
With you
With you

[Verse]

All this disease
All this desire
We leave it behind
To look for a higher truth

When there's a fire in the city

I wanna forgive
I wanna surrender
When everyone's gone
I will still be with you

There's a fire in the city
There's a fire in the city
There's a fire in the city

[Chorus]

Rain on this town
Our love's like water
I wanna drown
With you
With you

There's a fire in the city
There's a fire in the city

[outro Chorus]

Two more lovers left alive
To face the darkness of the night

Two hearts out alone again
To find each other in the end

Two hearts looking for the light
In the town of endless night
Track Name: Planets Align
[Verse]

You were standing in the sun
There were stars inside your eyes
Reflecting everyone

You never were alone
There were ghosts in this hotel
Lost without a home

[Chorus]

And all this time
All this time
I'm with you
I'm with you

[Verse]

We sailed around the world
You were queen without a throne
I worshipped you alone

In this universe tonight
All the darkness fades away
The planets will align

[Chorus]

Yours with mine
And all this time
I'm with you
I'm with you
I'm with you

[Bridge]

Taking all the time away
You fall into my arms
If we are the infinite
The end is just the start

[Chorus]

All this time
I'm with you
I'm with you
All this time
Track Name: Galatea
[Verse]

Seven men overboard
One is left to wash ashore
How long will he survive?

A raging storm in the night
No shadows fall under moonless night
Then she appears in front of me

[Chorus]

I want to feel the earth
Underneath me
I want to feel the sea
Wash all over

[Verse]

A hundred days lost at sea
The waves wash away all the memories
Of you and me
My Galatea

A blue mirage appears again
An image of her takes my soul again
As darkness falls all around me

[Chorus]

I want to feel the earth
Underneath me
I want to feel the sea
Wash all over

[Bridge]

Here comes the night the night
I want to believe again
That she is alive
Somewhere on the sea tonight

[Verse}

A moonless night
Is in between
The face thats staring back at me
Its nothing more
Than reflection on the sea

[Chorus]

I want to feel the earth
Underneath me
I want to feel the sea
Wash all over
Track Name: Into the Unknown
[Verse]

I flew to New York
The plane touched down
I wondered the streets
There was no one around
Maybe I was lost?

I opened the door
And walked inside
The lights went down
I could see your eyes
Maybe you were lost?

[Chorus]

Maybe your the savior to my soul
Maybe there are things we'll never know
If you want to follow me let's go
Into the unknown

[Verse]

I saw her picture
Before this day
I'm watching her now
Up on the stage
And I can hear her voice

The snow fell down
On the empty street
There was no one around
No one else but me
Maybe I was lost?

[Chorus]

Maybe your the savior to my soul
Maybe there are things we'll never know
And if you want to follow me let's go
Into the unknown


[Verse]

I flew to New York
The plane touched down
I looked for you
There was no one around
And maybe I was lost?

[Chorus]

And maybe your the savior to my soul
And maybe there are things we'll never know
And if you want to follow me let's go
Into the unknown

And maybe its the last time I am lost
And maybe we will find all that we want
Before the world revolves into the sun
Into the unknown
Track Name: Night of the Living Dead
[Verse]

I am a skeleton of diamonds and gold
You are my ghost girl, we'll never grow old
I made these bones to glow in the dark
We'll float above the ground
In the cemetery park

[Chorus]

The night of living dead
We'll never survive
And I was never yours
And you were never mine
We're running through the dark
Like shadows of the night
We'll never be apart
If we survive

[Verse]

There is a video
Under your bed
It was of you and me
Before we were dead
I look for you
To glow in the dark
The video tape
Is all that I've got

[Chorus]

The night of living dead
We'll never survive
And I was never yours
And you were never mine
We're running through the dark
Like shadows of the night
We'll never be apart
If we survive
If we survive

[Verse]

You are my ghost girl, we'll never grow old
I made these bones to glow in the dark
Will you stay with me
In the cemetery park

[Chorus]

The night of living dead
We'll never survive
And I was never yours
And you were never mine
We're running through the dark
Like shadows of the night
We'll never be apart
If we survive

The night of living dead
The demons of the night
The way that your hair covered your eyes
The videotape under your bed
Is all that we had before we were dead
Track Name: Lenore
[Verse]

It came upon
A midnight moon

There was a knock
Upon the door

It was the wind
And nothing more

[Chorus]

My Lenore
Whisper to me
There's nothing more
Nevermore, nevermore

[Verse]

A seraphim
Entered the room

To steal away
The darkest fear

There's no one here
But tortured minds

Still raven calls
Into the night

[Chorus]

My Lenore
Whisper to me
There's nothing more
Nevermore, nevermore
Track Name: Bride
[Verse]

You make your way
Through the storm tonight
To the villager's town
The monster has drowned

The fire will show us way tonight
Where the crowd gathers round
No monster is found

[Pre-Chorus]

You twist the knife and
I'll take the pain
If we're alive then
Maybe we'll feel it
You shoot the love gun
Into my brain tonight

[Chorus]

To my bride
You kept me alive

[Verse]

I wake to a scream
And a horrible sight
Under a horrible light
My body has died

[Pre-Chorus]

You twist the knife and
I'll take the pain
If we're alive then
Maybe we'll feel it
I'm coming to life now
Your blood in my veins tonight

[Chorus]

To my bride
You kept me alive

[Outro]

All we are is skin and bones
All we are is all alone
Maybe there's something more
Under the blood

All we are is skin and bones
All we are is all alone
Maybe there's something more

Under the blood
Under the blood
Track Name: Bend the Light
[Verse]

I've lost too much blood
It's all out in the open now
I fall into the flood
And go down in flames

With all that I've won
And the wars we've lost
I wanna bend the light
And take back the time

[Chorus]

Can you make the waterfall?
Can you make the curtain call?
Can you bend the light around the dark?

[Verse]

I wanna taste the blood
And the beat of the broken
I fall into the flood
And go down in flames

[Chorus]

Can you make the waterfall?
Can you make the curtain call?
Can you bend the light around the dark?

[Verse]

I've lost too much blood
It's all out in the open now
I fall into the flood
And go down in flames
Go down in flames

[Chorus]

Can you be invisible?
Can you bend you light at all?
Can you turn the water into wine and all the blood to straw?
Can you make the waterfall?
Can you make the curtain call?
Can you bend the light around the dark?

Can you bend the light?

Can you be invisible?
Can you bend you light at all?
Can you turn the water into wine and all the blood to straw?
Can you make the waterfall?
Can you make the curtain call?
Can you bend the light around the dark?

Can you bend the light?
Track Name: Woman in Chains
You better love loving and you better behave
You better love loving and you better behave
Woman in chains
Woman in chains

Calls her man the great white hope
Says she's fine, she'll always cope
Ohh, woman in chains
Woman in chains

Well I feel lying and waiting is a poor man's deal (a poor man's deal)
And I feel hopelessly weighed down by your eyes of steel (your eyes of steel)
Well it's a world gone crazy
Keeps woman in chains

Oh oh oh oh oh
Woman in chains
Woman in chains

Trades her soul as skin and bones
Sells the only thing she owns, oh oh
Woman in chains
Woman in chains

Men of stone
Men of stone
Oh, no no no

Well I feel
deep in your heart there are wounds time can't heal
And I feel
somebody somewhere is trying to breathe
Well you know what I mean
It's a world gone crazy
Keeps woman in chains

It's under my skin but out of my hands
I'll tear it apart but I won't understand
I will not accept the greatness of man

It's a world gone crazy
Keeps a woman in chains
Gone crazy, keeps woman in chains

So free her
So free her
So free her
So free her
So free her
Track Name: Video Girl
[Verse]

I'm watching TV
I'm looking for a girl
I'm changing the channels
She's changing my world

I'm dancing alone
Without any friends
She's out on the dance floor
She's dancing with a man

[Pre-Chorus]

I want to ask her to dance with me
But she can't see me cuz

[Chorus]

She's just a video girl
A video girl
She's just a video girl
In a video world

[Verse]

I'm creeping around
The club at night
I bought a drink
On ladies night

I look for the girl
I saw on TV
I want to see her
Look back at me

[Pre-Chorus]

I think she might be here tonight
But no one knows because

[Chorus]

She's just a video girl
A video girl
She's just a video girl
In a video world

[Bridge]

I don't wanna look for anyone else
She's the girl that's meant for me tonight
I don't wanna dance, dance alone
I wanna find her now and take her home
Take her home
And dance alone

[Verse]

I turn off the lights
I try to sleep
But the video girl is looking back at me

I get out of bed
I look at the stars
I turn on the radio
They're playing The Cars!!! (fuck yeah)

[Pre-Chorus]

She's the only girl for me
She's on tv

[Chorus]

She's just a video girl
A video girl
She's just a video girl
In a video world

She's just a video girl
A video girl
She's just a video girl
In a video world
