Kon Darp So much balance and good taste on this album. Mellow but technical, the kind of album you can take home to meet your parents.

Track Name: Unfurl
There was a side of you that I could not hide
I tried to look the other way, but I was denied
You were too cold for this role
You think you’re in control

I could have been the one
To take you in

You were lost too

Down this road, is your home (I could be the sun)
Where you learned to walk the talk (I was left undone)
Snowflakes show you another fold (By grey skies, by impatience)
The story will soon unfold (I was left undone)
The story will soon unfold (I could have held the gun)
The story will soon unfold (But I was left undone)

The colours will soon unfurl

And you set out, in search of a foreign land
And you came, and you conquered

Now you’re stuck inside
Unwilling
Indifferent to what is on the outside

You were lost too

(Oh, I say
Move, my way)
Track Name: Seeds
We could have gone to another place
Where the sun shines in many ways

This could have been a mistake
But you said it to my face

All that you’d known
Were the seeds you’d sown
In our skies were
Birds that could not fly

Oh, she sold her shells in town
The shore was too far
Jill, she tumbled down
Then flew away

All that you’d known
Were the seeds you’d sown
And in our time
How could you have been so blind?
Track Name: Seagulls (Cemented)
A shame
The mundane
Is just so insane

We ought
To rot
With the drought

So long
To the sea
To a face so safe

I got caught
In my sprinting thoughts
In storms so fowl
That seagulls drown

And I saw
You as my way home
Safe and secure
Wrongly so

And so
I had no place to go
Footsteps to call my own
Yet somehow I trip and fall

Do you remember the time we broke the waves?
The fort fell down
And so did the soldier’s crown

In a light so blinding, the seagulls kept at bay
The wind became a cage

And I sought (Cemented, cemented!)
You as my way out (Cemented, cemented!)
But you’re the wall that surrounds (Cemented, cemented!)
Cementing my feet to the ground (Cemented, cemented!)

And so (Cemented, cemented!)
I had no place to go (Cemented, cemented!)
Footsteps to call my own (Cemented, cemented!)
Yet somehow I trip and fall (Cemented!)
Track Name: Like Kites
There was a subtle misfire
Words hawkish like kites
In a space so dire
He flew in to bite

And he’s not letting you go
You’re chained to the ground
So is your hope
The pictures were drawn in pen
Sculpted with sin
Over the years you’ve grown

Unsettled

And insecure

He went too far
His love grew thorns
Don’t let this go on too long
You are strong

You could fly away

This is no mistake

But he went too far
He now hurts you, he takes too long
Don’t let this go on too long
You are strong

In this puzzle
You have become
A piece so unknown
A piece so conquered

In this puzzle
You have become
A piece so conquered
Will you defer?
Track Name: Lucy
Did I sought this out?
Engender this mess?
You’ll remain silent
I’ll suffocate on my perceived innocence

You’ll live on false ground
With your army of pacifists

But you fail to see
That there’s more to this
That there’s me
We’re not winning

Get in line, Lucy
‘Cause I might
Kill someone this week
If they tried
To hide the sun from me
In my plight

Get in line, Lucy
‘Cause I might

Just see me
I’m not in a blind spot
You can back out
But I’ll still yell it out
That I wish you’d stick around

‘Cause I might

Kill someone this week
If they tried
To hide the sun from you
In your fright

Get in line, Lucy
‘Cause I might

And I won’t be your song
I won’t come along
I won’t be your song
I won’t come along

But I might

Yeah, I might
Track Name: He Will Owe You His Life
He will owe you his life

One, then another tragedy
I can't believe this happened all to me
I drove my car, away I go
Off to pay one then another toll

Oh, give him a way
Give him his say
He lost his gaze
And he will owe you his life

Up to the top I went
Just to fly down again
I stopped my car and ran
He did the same and then
I was on the ground but could get up because of him

Oh, another day
He lost his way
Give him a say
And he will owe you his life

Up to the top I went
Just to fly, fly back down again
I stopped my car and ran
Track Name: Dull Brights
Be silent now, be silent now
You have said enough
Be silent now, be silent now
You have said enough

I’ve lost all of my hope
To the ones I was told to trust the most
And oh we, we saw the kettle rising
This water, it burns

Be silent now, be silent now
You have said enough
Be silent now, be silent now
You have said enough

You dream of suits, not of coups
One day you’ll loot the people
Of their dreams

Your hate will lose
Your hate will lose
Your hate will lose
And I shall not be bruised

So, I
So, I
Was denied my sight
Denied my rights
Futures dull brights

So, I
So, I
Will fight, will fight
Track Name: Pick Up The Pencil
The story is yours, pick up the pencil,
Write what you want, time might just stand still
You could paint us now with smiles not sins,
Trees fall down like leaves and question our dreams

We could lose this

I’ll face you,
I’ll give you the truth,
I’ll let you conclude what you want to

You inhale what they exhale,
You might lose sight,
They want some more, and they’re never sore,
We might lose score

We could lose this

I’ll face you,
I’ll give you the truth,
I’ll let you conclude what you want to

All that you’ve known will come undone,
When the truth rides by your side
All that I want, is to see truth
Break through tough walls
And watch them fall

And I’ll face you,
I’ll give you the truth,
I’ll let you conclude what you want to
Come forth softly
Track Name: Masochist
Roughed up by fins
Low life has-beens
Claws deep in your own skin
He’s gratified by his wins

Time goes, time goes (Satan is a masochist, he doesn’t know what he wants)
You know, you know (Satan is a masochist, he doesn’t know what he wants)
If you don’t kneel to (Satan is a masochist, he doesn’t know anyone)
His needs, he’ll be your worst nightmare (He doesn’t know)

On a whim, on a whim (Satan is a masochist, he doesn’t know anyone)
We notice his motives (Satan is a masochist, he doesn’t know what he wants)
Given the chance to (Satan is a masochist, he doesn’t know what he wants)
He’d sell your breath if it bought him despair

Satan is he
You’re coming around
The cries get loud
The blinkers are down and the horse is on the run

Time goes, time goes
And his record will always hold
The sides are not turning
The waves are not crashing

On a whim, on a whim
You started to give in
The winner is he who
Will give more than he gets in return
Track Name: Complacence
There’s a part of me
That wants to give in
To the hollowness, the aimlessness
To when I’m harrowed, within

Tearing down the walls
Where memories hang no more
The doors they whisper close
The house a home no more

But we could be complacent

Lay down on the tracks
'cause fate’s written, right?
Well, I guess, I’ll give in
I guess, I’ll give in
I’ll just give in
I guess, I’ll give in
Yeah, I’ll give in

Now
Track Name: False Ground
Back down, I’ve got this
Back down, I've got this
Won't you back down? I've got this
Won't you back down?

I’m jaded
I’m faded
