Lyrics
FALLS THE SHADOW

Under the sun
The bright beautiful son
Falls the shadow
The light in your eyes
Is clouded with tears
Under this shadow
We've lost our home
Now forced to live
In the shadows

This is the way
This is the way our world ends

I search the horizon
You search my eyes
I can not tell you why the sun disappeared
And fate forced us to pick up and run
There's no news on all those left behind
There's no news on the fate of our son

Under the sun falls the shadow
This is the way
This is the way our world ends

Rumors in camp
Of peace and safety
Rumors of battle
Fear casts its shadow
The light in your eyes
Is cloudy with tears
Under this shadow
Now news that our son is dead
The sun will not shine again
In these eyes
In this tent
Under this shadow
Forever, this tent, in the shadows

This is the way
This is the way our world ends

With a whimper, not a bang
I can not tell you why our son is dead
And fate forced us to pick up and run
I dismiss all words of hope like swatting flies from food
We're millions and millions
Faceless, nameless millions
Millions and millions more
Faceless, nameless millions
UNHCR, UNICEF, the USA, the EU, anyone?
I search the horizon
You search my eyes
My cloudy eyes
My darkened eyes

Under the sun falls the shadow
This is the way
This is the way our world ends

The groove is working here. The vocal style recalls a certain Lizard King but evades a direct comparison. I think this is because of the words chosen to ride the accent.
Generally the overly dramatic fails to hold my interest, but I listened all the way through. The bass is just right under there, liquid and oozing on the bottom.
Really enjoyed this I will be back for more.

The opening captured my attention. Big picture lyrics. Big sound and production, too. An epic journey. I really like the strings and percussion in the reflective sections. Impressive package. Kudos. Thanks, Peter.
