Open Sky
Andrew McAuliffe

Rising up into the heavens
Rising above me now
The risen moon at midnight
Obscured by the clouds
Oh, how glad you made me
How glorious the scene
Sweetfully fulfilling
The gentle waves at sea

I can see the causes ‘round me
The causes led me to believe
I can see the causes ‘round me
The causes brought you to me

I never knew true beauty
‘Til I looked deep into your eyes
‘Til I looked deep into the sky
Now I’m yours

Rising up into the skies
Rising above me now
The risen sun at midpoint
Pushed away the clouds
Oh, how warm you made me feel
Can this all be real?
Sweetfully revealing
The sea waves lap the shore

I can see the causes ‘round me
The causes led me to believe
I can see the causes ‘round me
The causes brought you to me

I never knew true beauty
‘Til I looked deep into your eyes
‘Til I looked deep into the sky
Now I’m yours

Oh, how would it be just to float away?
Oh, how would it feel just to float away?
All alone beneath the open sky
Under the watchful eye

I never knew true beauty
‘Til I looked deep into your eyes
‘Til I looked deep into the sky
Now I’m yours

© Lyrics: 20th April 2002
© Music: 12th September 2002
Recorded in 2006.

My god. This song is ancient. On the day i recorded this the heating in the studio had gone and i was FREEZING! My guitar playing was canny bad due to blue hands!

Nono, it was fun! Finally a conversation on MSN! Hehe. And I was drunk as well I'll have you know. Rum n' Coke awesomeness, with a little treat of White Russians I must admit I repeated it last night. I ate x-mas food for dinner, starting x-mas early, then after half an hour or so I went for a walk out in the frosty evening and smoke a cigar. I walked down to a store further down of here and bought some coke zero. When I was home I had finished the cigar and went into the warmth and drank half a bottle of rum with coke. It was fantastic! Wednesday decadence I want to have another cigar today, although I'll chill with the alcohol. Hehe.

This week has been canny blah since my hangover. I've taken up learning Poi with Adam. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ5UXFRWGeQ Without the fire of course. I'm a very slow learner but Adam's doing really well thus far. I'm jealous.
I've also been kicking major backside on Unreal Tournament III on the PS3. The world will fear me!
This weekend i will hopefully have more alcohol. I cannot wait. I think it's going to be a Vodka weekend and with Vodka i know that i'm going to be totally mortal!
The EP has gone down ok which is good especially Open Sky which has been surprising.

Is that the stuff where they have "stiff" straight torches, but you twist your hands and move smoothly to make it look like you're working with weighted ropes or something like that? Looks cool

I think it's really nice. I'd say some of your best songs were the old guitars-and-vocals-songs. Not that your new stuff isn't good, hehehe, but I just like something I can sing along to you know.

One day you will make me a perfect White Russian. Even the way its name sounds makes it sound yummy!
I've learnt a few poi moves so far. I'm a long way off being a master. Maybe poi would make perfect material for a music vid in some way?
I have a few other unheard tracks from the first album sessions but i'm uber shy about them... I guess i should just release them... They have vocals
Open Sky is such a soppy love song!

And yup, my remix of "It's A Trip" by Shakespears Sister is definitely going to be used. Apparently it is going to be emailed to those on the mailing list and added to the media section within the next couple of weeks.

Edit - This is song i have done a remix for. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88y8wPiQ4OE
and this is their biggest hit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUr9IyIZpLM

I have been involved in a debate regarding the Loudness War.
This is were albums are mixed/mastered by "increasing levels of loudness and reduced dynamic range."
Thus the final product suffers with a bad sound with tracks often clipping. I have decided to go back over all the tracks for "Dark City" and remaster them to a better standard in order to not become a culprit of this terrible music phenomenon.
I want the tracks to shine and not have the irritating fuzz sound over the top of the track like on badly mastered Loudness War culprits. If you would like more information on the Loudness War please check out Wikipedia by following this Link - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_war
All the songs are thus being remastered. Over the past 2 weeks i've mixed them and now a friend is remastering them. I'm looking forward to hearing the finished product!
I've also sent one of the tracks (Crystalline) away to be professionally reviewed. I'm excited to see what they say.

apparently Crystalline is a potential alternative 'dance' hit. It was ranked as 5th on a Soundclick Reviewers Potential poll. ROCK ON!

I like Dark City as a whole,it sounds like the waste management interlude tracks.Drums made a good combination with electronic tracks Your voice is sweet on Open Sky I would like to hear your voice in one of electronic tracks in future.Well Done!

Thank you fanoff. I'm really glad you liked. A t.A.T.u. comparison too! Big smiles!
The drum machine is finally worth its mettle. Some of the other tracks that are going to be on the album are heavily drum synthesized. The album flows perfectly me thinks. It's currently being mastered and mixed (Equalisation is of major importance) and is sounding great. No clipping of tracks, no fuzzing. I underestimated the importance of a decent mastering session. It's time consuming but soooo worth it! Vocals are going to be added, i swear!
Open Sky - I was extremely cold when i recorded that song. The heating in the studio had gone but i was adamant that i wanted to finish the track. I have a few other demos from that time that i cringe at as they are so twee, naive and coy.

The E.P. also contains a track from the "Alone In The Dark" album called "Sphere," a B-side called "Tenebrae (Vox Version)" and a previously unreleased acoustic demo from the "Book of Shadows" session called "Nothing Here But Me."

A link will be posted in due course.

P.S: Dradeel, the lyrics for "Nothing Here But Me" will be posted also.
p.p.s. - i need painkillers... but will settle for passing out cold in about 15mins time!

tee hee, thank you.
I have the flu. I have been cabbaged in bed for 3 days now. So i'm canny looking forward to posting the E.P. as it's one positive thing i can look forward to this week.

Nothing Here But Me

Falling down's alright
Reminiscing all through the night
Dreaming of a life without fear
And of a journey to California with you
Chances are a million to one
A million to one's still a chance
Gonna have to take it
Visioning as i'm falling asleep of a risk i'm willing to take

My fire spreads outwards into the world a far
A preciousness is counting down the days
The fire spreads as far as i can see
Nothing here but me


Glitter falls on me
Curing me of the blues i get when you're gone
No i never sleep
My mindscape jumps it keeps me awake at night
Join me for a game... do you dare?
I dare you to follow me wherever i go
We never sleep at night
Our childish behaviour takes over
There's no escape

My fire spreads outwards into the world a far
A preciousness is counting down the days
The fire spreads as far as i can see
My fire spreads outwards into the world a far
A preciousness is counting down the days
The fire spreads as far as i can see
Nothing here but me


Falling down's alright
Reminiscing all through the night
Dreaming of a life without fear
And of a journey to California with you
With you
With you
With you

©2006

Tenebrae (Vox Version)

I am the one without a face
For people talk to my nothingness
I have no face
I am not loved like i should be loved
I give so much...

Trampled on
Bled to death
Sucked dry and left to rot
I am of no worth to people because i am wrongness personified...
