about

The Dividing Line is based around the idea that two things that are meant to be together can be separated by something so large, like an enormous distance, or by something so small, like a wall, and yet the impact on those involved is the same. The album explores several textures; ranging from the heavy, fast-paced and aggressive synth-oriented tracks that deliver the concept with a punch, to slow, melancholic moments of pristine acoustic beauty where everything becomes clear. "I wanted to make sure the album took the listeners on a journey that made them feel comfortable and at one with the music experience, and then quickly transport them to places where their boundaries might be tested. Moments of intimacy to moments of sheer, daunting distance - all the while being as entertaining as possible. I'm confident I've pulled this off!" - Alex Mascart

For Emma, with whom there is no dividing line.

Track Name: With You
Shades of blue all I see,
Homeward the sky is red,
Winds that tolerate me,
Pushed envelopes she said,

Round and round the great ellipse forever,

The sea and sky unseen,
Horizon lost between worlds,
Blackness of what has been,
The light can be unfurled,

Round and round the great ellipse forever,

Laze around with you,
Chase around with you,
Gaze around with you,
Given time with you I-,
Track Name: Too Far
A distant journey has taken me far away,
Faint hearted lullaby of a lost someday,
The clouds are burning they are bright and red,
Not long now that's right she said,

Bring thunder clouds to this empty head,
Show me how to live and that I'm not dead,
Bring thunder clouds to this calloused one,

I hear a voice from inside of my head,
But am I mad or is it love?
Horizon disappears when night descends,
Precious moment when two worlds dissolve,

Bring thunder clouds to this empty head,
Show me how to live and that I'm not dead,
Bring thunder clouds to this calloused one,

You're too far away,
I cannot leave here,
Track Name: Universe
Well I'm sure you'd fight,
But for what?
All night,
We would dance under the starlit sky,
Here I am,
Here to stay,
Now there's nothing in our way,
Take a step,
Watch the fire as it cries,

Watch the sea,
Watch the sky,
All of life in our eyes,
Unfurl just for us to see,
But it's not,
As it seems,
We can't always have this,
Just a while,
Let us have what could be,

Well you're right,
It's wrong,
But it wont be here for long,
Don't cry,
Universe is upside down in your tears,

Let us dance,
Just a while,
Just to make the other smile,
Please come lie down next to me,
It's all here to stay,
We've forever anyway,
Just to spend out our lives being free,

Well you're right,
It's wrong,
But it wont be here for long,
Don't cry,
Universe is upside down in your tears,
Track Name: Ghost Fear
The smell of your favourite books starts to fade,
You spend all day trying to stay in the shade,
Your ghosts and your demons locked up in a box,
Time is running out - you can't turn back the clocks,

All the while we fled from light,
All this time we gave up sight,
It's already happening,
And eating away elsewhere,
All the while we fled from light,
We're hexed alive,

It's a bittersweet plateau and I've conquered all fears,
It's a bittersweet plateau but am I happy to be here?
And all this time they were arriving too,
Forever and ever I'll love you,

All the while we fled from light,
All this time we gave up sight,
It's already happening,
And eating away elsewhere,
All the while we fled from light,
We're hexed alive,
Track Name: The Dividing Line
I run through the trees,
I hope,
I see your fear my dear,
I'll escape,
I know no love but this,
I yearn,
You know I'm here for all,
Of time,

The dividing line,
Will you cross the line?
Ignore the signs?

I know no love but this,
I yearn,
You know I'm here for all,
Of time,

The dividing line,
Will you cross the line?
Ignore the signs?
Track Name: Stormy Horizons
I see it come closer every day,
Nothing new nothing here is sure to stay,
Take out a ship and follow all you can see,
Look in the storm it's your destiny,

I'll follow the river and the sun will beat down,
It'll punish the ego and destroy your crown,
And I'll follow you there and together we'll wizen,
And all of your fears will fade,
From the stormy horizon,

Here to stay, get away,
Let's hear it for the lost someday,

I'll follow the river and the sun will beat down,
It'll punish the ego and destroy your crown,
And I'll follow you there and together we'll wizen,
And all of your fears will fade,
From the stormy horizon,
Track Name: Ghost Sun
Into the ghost sun...

I'll show you some star-crossed lovers,
And a catalyst for each and to the other,
To become one; that's all I have to say,
Does it even feel real?
You're so far away,
Track Name: The Great Ellipse
Shades of blue all I see,
Homeward the sky is red,
Winds that tolerate me,
Pushed envelopes she said,

(Round and round)

The sea and sky unseen,
Horizon lost between worlds,
Blackness of what has been,
The light can be unfurled,
Around the centre of time,
Like living in a dream,
The life of what we find,
And all that it seems,

(Round and round)

(Shades of blue all I see,
Homeward the sky is red,
Winds that tolerate me,
Pushed envelopes she said,)
Track Name: Between Clouds
Stormy belows and blood red skylines,
Stuck between clouds in a distant world,
Black sun has risen - here to stay,
And all these thoughts in a little box,

The haze and clouds all about me,
The wonder of love is all I see,
Breaking the world is all they do,
A finger touch and I love you,

A hazy moment stuck between clouds,
All of space leaks into sea,
In the forest I went searching,
While looking for you I found me,

The haze and clouds all about me,
The wonder of love is all I see,
Breaking the world is all they do,
A finger touch and I love you,

The haze and clouds all about me,
The wonder of love is all I see,
Breaking the world is all they do,
A finger touch and I love you,
I love you,
I love you,
