kadees What makes a great Prog album? Sicher nicht groovige Rhythmen, unspektakuläre Arrangements und durchwachsener Gesang. Doch ergeben genau diese Zutaten ein angenehm entspanntes Album, das nicht an unerreichbaren Messlatten kratzt, sondern in erster Linie Spaß macht. „The Final Breath Before November“ ist ein Spaßalbum, das Trewavas zwischen einer Marilliontour und einem Transatlantic-Album mal so nebenbei aufgenommen hat, ohne damit die Grenzen der Musik verschieben zu wollen.
(July 31, 2015) Favorite track: Light Years.

Judy Humphries The second album from Edison's Children is a sweeping, majestic and confident prog rock epic that more than delivers on the debut promise. Favorite track: Silhouette - iii. where were you?.

Russell Whyman Prog rock from New York. Slightly poppy in places and sounding very Marillion like in others. But it is very involving and the more you listen the better it gets. This is fast becoming one of my favourite Bandcamp finds.

The more you listen, the better it gets. Favorite track: Light Years.

Final Breath 04:03
Was I really there, or just a fleeting vision from the corner of your eye? Just a vision of your mind, overwhelmed by that chill inside. A glimpse into a world, lost inside of its own despair. I can’t move on from here until I know that I’m in there. Forevermore…

Light Years 06:05
Chorus: “Here I am Light Years from home Among these stars is now where I roam I never thought you would be So many Light Years from me” Funny how I had always strayed, too far behind you Now I’m lost here in Outerspace, I thought I’d find you Drifted off onto far off clouds when the sun came to shine on me Now I’m lost in this universe, please come bring me back to Earth Chorus Looking at how we drifted away, I took for granted Now I’m lost here in Outerspace, those seeds we planted You don’t always appreciate what you’ve got until it’s gone Now I’ll search celestial seas, what is gonna bring you back to me? Chorus You thought you had what you were looking for… all along You never know what you’ve got until its gone You were searching in all the wrong places It’s in the stars tonight, You just have to look up and see it shining bright Chorus Now I sit here alone in space, trying to rewind What I wouldn’t give to go Light Years back in time And say exactly what I want to say without fear of losing you Now I’m lost in this lunacy, pretending like you’re here with me...

Something disturbed the light Is there really someone out there? Lurking out of sight... Fractions of a broken night sky I’m just one… another lost soul… (Just a Silhouette) Now I can’t find my way home (Another Silhouette) Among the stars is now where I roam (A fading Silhouette) Here I am, light years from home… Just a Silhouette A Fading Silhouette From a long time ago.

I didn’t sign up for this So I’m not sure what I’m supposed to say… Silence Can Be Deafening sometimes When you’re so far away… So Far Away… I Fall Away I wish I could touch you but you’re not there Can’t feel a thing, don’t know if I even care Every day I just need to make it through to one more day But you’re so far away... I Fall Away… Away Oh and I … I’ll never forget your face You know I’m always going to need you ...to feel your warm embrace Oh and I… I wish that I could stay You know I’m always going to love you ...in my own special way You look like you’re lost, come take my hand And follow me to another land You don’t need to spend every waking day Running Away… From what you can’t forget Haunted by Your Silhouette Oh and I… I’ll never forget your face You know I’m always gonna need you ...to feel your warm embrace Oh and I… If only I could stay You know I’m always going to miss you ...as much as I do today Oh and I… I’m going to love you ...in my own special way

Welcome to your Dreamland You’ve drifted miles away There’s someone here waiting for you They have something they want to say Wake You, Make You, Take You along to a very special place Is this what you want? Is this why you’ve come? Is this what you were hoping to find? Fall Away… find your way back home Don’t turn around, there’s no place to run I’m afraid your comfort zone is in decline Is this is what you want? Is this why you’ve come? Is this what you were expecting to find? They’ll Wake You, Make You, Take You to a very special place Where everything you’ve ever hoped for is laying there in waste Such a disgrace... Going Insane.

Where were you when the hurricanes came? Where were you for the Eastern rains? Where were you? Where were you when the winds came forth? Where were you when the gales blew north? Where were you? (In My Head Section): I’ve wanted to walk back out into the warmth of the morning sun. It’s in my head… Won’t you take me back to where the rivers used to run? It’s in my head… my head………… Where were you when the winter came south? Where were you for the 7 year drought? Where were you? Where were you when the rivers ran dry? Where were you when the crops all died? Where were you? Bridge: No I can’t get back... Yet I want to get back... But the cards are all stacked... You know I need to get back.. It’s the only thing stopping my memory... Fade and fall! And I can’t get back... But I want to get back... No, the cards are all stacked... And I need to get back... They’re the only things stopping my memory... Fade and fall! (Are you out of your tiny mind?) Where were you when the quakes broke ground? Where were you when the mountains came down? Where were You? Where were you when the horseman rode west? Where were you when the 4 came to rest? Where were you? ("In My Head" Section): I’ve wanted to walk back out into the warmth of the morning sun. It’s in my head… Take me back to where the rivers used to run. It’s in my head… my head… my head….. Won’t you let me be there when it all was still so young? It’s in my head.....

A Winter’s fire burning bright Funny the things you long for… Warming your soul in the night Funny the things you long for… Now I feel so cold aching in my bones I just want a place to call home And I will roam this netherworld Until I know that you are never alone One more chance to say goodbye Funny the things that you long for… One more chance to hold you tight Funny the things you long for… Wandering in and out of your mind When I had to desert you I know you feel so betrayed I never wanted to hurt you Even when you feel all alone, I won’t be far from home Just close your eyes And I will be all around you… Was I really there or just the fleeting vision from the corner of your eye? Just a vision from your mind overwhelmed by that chill inside A glimpse into a world completely lost in its own despair I can’t move on from here until I know that I’m in there Forevermore… So when things fall from the wall that’s just my way of making a curtain call Ever creek in the floor, ever squeak in the door ...every noise in the hall So when you get up at night and see a strange sort of light It’s the way that you know I will watch over you from The Longing…

Whispering in the dark - They know your name, they know what they’re after Wandering through the park - Drawn towards this hideous laughter Waiting to make their mark - Lurking around in all the wrong places They were there from the start - Blending in with all the other faces Slithering through the cracks - Something just beneath your footprints Living under the tracks - Attracted by your tale of transgressions What’s there behind your back? - You never know what’s crawling behind you Why don’t you just relax? - That’s how the Morphlux finally finds you The light is growing dim - Now it’s time to run for shelter They glide in very slow - Then suddenly it’s helter skelter There’s no place left to run - The shadows begin to surround all around you What’s that terrible sound? - The Morphlux has taken you down…

Lost in the Woods, I can’t seem to find my way home Into the light shining bright, I am Haunted Banished to this Netherworld if I ignore it Condemned to dwell on past regrets for eternity. I’m not ready yet, just give me a little more time I’ve wasted every moment of this legacy I should have, I could have, I would have … but I didn’t. And now they’ve come to take a hold of me.

What did you want? What did you need? You won’t get it... A lifetime of hurt. A lifetime of greed. Is what you made it... Did you feel good? Did you stand tall? Contemplate it... Arrogant fraud, Behind the wheel Think about it... We're in control, Tormented soul Our Marionette... We hold the key, To your amnesty Eternally... Turn back the clock. Undo that lock Out of your grasp... You face yourself, Your nemesis Recognition

Silhouette - viii The Seventh Sign - i The Wrong When I looked to the sky it was from the wrong side of the rainbow The rains had all gone but the sun refused to shine The forest before the trees, burned to ash and embers As the calm before the storm brought turbulence to the great divide Silhouette - viii The Seventh Sign - ii The Acolyte Don’tcha want to see it? Don’tcha want to be it? Don’tcha want to need it? Don’tcha want to bleed it? Don’tcha want to heed it? Don’tcha want to seed it? Don’tcha want to feed it? Don’tcha want to eat it? Silhouette - viii The Seventh Sign - iii The Hollows From miles away… From mountains to borders The storms would rise Across horizons into skies A seer’s gaze... Looked down upon the Hollows Only to fathom It will never again be the same. Silhouette - viii The Seventh Sign - iv The Road (Less Traveled) The road less traveled Had arrived at its destination There was no place like home Left for us to reside And the show that must go on Completed it’s final performance The darkness before the dawn Would never give way to light…

This wasn’t what I envisioned, So don’t ask me why I chose to stay Silence Can Be Deafening Sometimes, When you’re so far away... So far away… I fall away… Spirited apparitions I sing a requiem... Inspired by what I myself cannot comprehend Shadows dart across the halls... They spin and pirouette Enchanted by the visions, of your silhouette,.. Of your Silhouette… Of your Silhouette… Oh and I … I’ll never forget your face You know I’m always gonna need you... to feel your warm embrace Oh and I… If only I could stay... you know I’m gonna miss you... as much as I do today Oh and I... I’m always gonna love you In my own special way

Welcome back to your nightmares... I knew I would see you again I warned you this would happen if you fell back to sleep ... Close your eyes and count to 10 Don’t turn around, there’s no place to run, I’m afraid your comfort zone is in decline Is this what you want, is this why you’ve come, is this what you were expecting to find? Fall Away... Find your way back home They’ll wake you, make you, take you to... a very special place Where everything you’ve hoped for... is laying there in waste Such a disgrace

i can see you hiding away - wouldn’t you like a friend to talk to? can you come out and play? - the morphlux we just want to meet you! i can’t go on much longer like this... i can’t let down my guard ... until the fog has cleared twisting deep into your conscious - you can’t flee from the inevitable if you give us just half a chance - you’ll find we’re slightly more than incredible go ahead and lock your doors - we’ve already slipped on through the crevices the wicked was already within - there is no way to hide from the darkness entangled inside myself - the dusk is rising up to my estrangement i’m becoming the morphlux - one of the shadows dancing across the pavement i can’t seem to catch my breath - you’ll be catching something else that’s rather vicious if you glance at my mealy eyes - what happens next is nothing short of masochistic..
