Story

The song Adrift by Cranes and the films of David Lynch dealing with parallel worlds like Mulholland Drive were the primary inspiration for this song. I wanted to keep the vocals buoyant but also add a little of a deeper resonance in parts. My favorite thing about the recording is the overall guitar sound, especially in the chorus. The vocals were heavily influenced by Peter Murphy's vocals on the Bauhaus' album Go Away White.

Lyrics

She’s left alone Sole survivor into regions unknown Cut the rope let the anchor go Made it over the waterfall Lit the candle, a candle within Left nobody when the door was opened Mist a symbol in the ether to climb high above her floating into the night The shadow in your reflection stretches across the reverse direction The shadow in the reflection shows you long gone into another life She’s left to roam Sole survivor to explore the dark realm Saved her breath for the undertow Washed ashore then revived somehow The shadow in your reflection stretches across the reverse direction The shadow in the reflection stretches across the reverse direction The shadow in our reflection shows you long gone into another life
