The Goon From now on I will refrain from expressing doubt and ambivalence about BM, since I have purchased more of it in the past 6 months than in my entire life. bc has helped me realize that there is more to the genre than negative face painters from the frozen north. This is a good example.

Track Name: Days Long Gone
Clouds across the sky
wind and rain
are all that remains
of those days long gone,
where the light of hope shone
why are they gone?

Pale is now the light
that reach me through the window,
gloomy are my dreams
like shadows on the walls.

A reality that I
can not change,
a reality that I
have learned to accept,
all I want is to go away..
Track Name: Dance of Shadows
The flame is burning
and shadows comes to life,
with a simple flick of the light
their movements change;

And sanding away the light source
the shadows grows longer,
and eager for a new life
they stretch and cry.

Projections exactly like
memories kept in mind,
shadows are reflections
of ourselves in presence of light...
Track Name: Autumn's End Dream
There are a lot of colors out of here,
red and yellow upon the trees
green and brown on the soil,
it's cold but not too much;

The wind is placid at this time
while this loneliness pervades me,
and I found myself travelling
with the mind to unknown places
where the sun shines
and it looks like spring.

And now, awakened from the dream,
I found myself here
while winter is almost here.
