All Life is One

by Elegant Simplicity

I saw you falling to the ground And I watched as you stood up again Was it a day's mourning that I had found? While the sky was so dark and pale? I followed you through an uncertain town I listened but you said nothing Your eyes were strangely closed and drawn Seeing only veins that passed across the air You've hated the day on which you were born And have wanted to die ever since it would seem So you're climbing to the top Scaling the height you felt you lacked Hoping it ends when you drop I saw you falling to the ground Into the tears of those that cried for you Ain't it strange how many friends you have When it's too late and you've grown tired?
Don't know what to believe any more You've told me so many lies In your arms I felt the truth In your arms there's no disguise The time we spent together The days we shared in the sun Holding hands against the world Not afraid of anyone And now you tell me it's over But can't tell me why Love is transferred, you say Love never dies And now you tell me it's over But can't tell me why Love is transferred, you say Love never dies Love is transferred, you say Love never dies How I miss your smile, your touch The way you held me when the world was cruel And here you are beating up my heart And leaving it in the cold [Chorus] Is this what it has come to My sweet, sweet soul-mate? Fighting in the streets Over the love we had made The pain will always be with me For years and years to come Truly, my love, you were the only one [Chorus]
Tin Rattler 07:44


This album took longer to make than anticipated on account of abandoning the original demos / recordings and starting from scratch with all new musicians: a change is as good as a rest . . apparently!

'All Life is One' is a relatively short album (by our standards), though it originally kicked in at over an hour. However, I pruned it right back of the stuff that didn't sit with the overall vibe and ended up with a much more cohesive and structured release. The other tracks will be released as B-Sides, so you will get to hear them at some point.

This album is a huge departure in many ways for us: first, it does not feature either Ken or Christopher (though they did perform on the original demo tracks)! It does feature, however, a whole host of great talent: from the sax playing of Nathan to the stunning violin of William to the rock steady drumming of Nathanael and the melodic bass of Jair-Rohm Parker Wells.

I truly believe this release to be amongst the best of our catalogue. As usual, the songs are diverse and involving but still retaining their trademark melodic sound. There is also much harder guitar than seen of late and the sax and violin solos make for a much more dynamic and involving listen.
