snapfreeze97 I froze from the moment the cd began. I felt as if a spell had been cast over me. The music carried me completely away from the drudgery of daily life and a new magical realm opened, right in my living room. Edens sound, as of this incarnation of the band, gives us the strong and passion filled vocals, dreamy guitar textures, complimented by clean acoustic guitars, deeply hip basslines. The songwriting is for the heavy thinker, the artist, the one who isn't afraid.

Track Name: Death of a Diamond
DEATH OF A DIAMOND

There’s a stranger on the hill
he’s walking alone out in the rain

There’s a stranger on the hill
he’s miles away from everything sane

This - this is the death
the death of a diamond
This - this is the end
the end for a diamond

There’s a stranger on the hill
his sky is fallin’ down
there’s no one around

There’s a stranger on the hill
he’s out in the field
lights are dying down

This - this is the end
this is the death of a diamond
This - this is the end
this is the death of a precious diamond

There’s a stranger on the hill
he’s walking away; leaving alone
There’s a nuance of will
he’s leavin' the gloam
the stranger’s goin’ home

This - this is the end
this is the death of a diamond
This - this is the way
the way of the diamond

Track Name: Lost and Found
LOST AND FOUND

Stranger days leave their mark on your way
Without exception they give nothing away
Therein is message only for you to read
To help you on your way through your deepest time of need

Well who’s to say what’s really comin’ around
There really is no telling who’s the lost and who’s the found

No one knows if it’ll be over real soon
Sun rides high, I don’t think we’re reaching noon
Even if it were dark would this block our rite of way
Hearts free of fear how little they seem to weigh

Well who’s to say what’s really comin’ around
There really is no telling who’s the lost and who’s the found

Like phoenix sinking down
Gotta be a point where it burns down
Like a phoenix sinking down
Gotta be a point where it turns around

Well is this you or me – can’t you see?
Well is this you or me – can’t you see?
Well is this you or me – can’t you see?
Well is this you or me?

Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017
Track Name: Girl with the Violin
GIRL WITH THE VIOLIN

tonight we met
among the shadows
your face rose up
in the mirror of the moon

you are the girl with the violin
your melody sweeps through this night
you the girl with the violin
mystery underscores our plight

your dark raven hair
reflects the gaze of the moon
your pale ivory face
rises among stars this night

down by the sea
you're waiting for me
idylls among the waves
are bringing in our love

you are the girl with the violin
your melody sweeps through this night
you the girl with the violin
mystery underscores our plight

you are the girl with the violin
your melody sweeps through this night
you the girl with the violin
mystery underscores our plight

Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017
Track Name: All the Time in the World
ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD

Ghostly pictures blur without a sound
Children crying on the merry-go-round
Best intentions scattered on the breeze -
Driven down without a sound

Well I’ve been meaning to free my mind
from the demons of my time
Wanton apathy digs deep inside
Stealing all the time in the world
There’s all the time in the world

Grey smoked chimneys fill the sky
Jarred perceptions how they fly -
across bland faces like tangled twine
Weaving sorrow down your spine

Bittersweet nothings move in on me
I’m not in the mood for the vanity -
Of venomous misers making to consume -
All the time in the world
There’s all the time in the world

Well there’s no fires of hell this time
Scriptures lurk deep down in the coal mine
A lack of harmony and the sacred divine -
brought down by the great unkind

Thunder and lightning
ride the horizon’s face
Lights up my periphery
Dissolves into space
It does what it does for me
Reminds me that -
There’s all the time in the world

There’s all the time in the world
All the time in the world
All the time in the world

Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017
Track Name: The Edge of Winter
THE EDGE OF WINTER

At the edge of winter
lilies grow

The sun wains
and the fires of love rise
to meet the kiss of frost

Animals call
in our night garden

Declaring that our world
is a realm of potential

All we have to do
is believe

Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017
Track Name: Returning
RETURNING

Was I awake
or simply dreaming
When I stood still
and caught the warmth from your sun

As I recall it
you were among friends
Your face like a pale moon
summoned me as if I were I drunken moth

I took up my staff
moved toward you
Stated my name
and spoke of lives and places

I took my leave
not knowing
that we would soon know each other’s ways
and drink from each other’s cups

And the sea swallows me
And I return to that place…

Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley
Track Name: Perfume Garden
PERFUME GARDEN

Young children play on a summer’s day
Among games and dolls tomorrow is far away
In the perfume garden
Where all your dreams began
The perfume garden
Lost dreams never end

Green hedges hide yesterday’s games
You run and laugh, you’re not afraid
There’s really no problem
In the perfume garden
Where circles never end
The perfume garden

I can see the island
I reach in for the shore
My friends are waiting and smiling
They’ll let me in the door
Of the perfume garden
You can warm your heart in
The perfume garden
Play your part in

Well I guess you’d like to give it all up
And take the path back to childhood beginnings
Where there’s no problem
In the perfume garden
Call your name in
The perfume garden

You can smile
You must take a while
No one is counting
No one is doubting

In the perfume garden
Where your path began
The perfume garden
Warm your heart in

Now I see
This is for me
Or rather the truth is
Now I am free

I’d forgotten
The perfume garden
Where my hopes began
The perfume garden

Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley
Track Name: December
DECEMBER

A flower grows in silence
a child calls my name

In the meadows
of this lifetime
I’ve gathered lilacs in the rain

There’s a melody
coming my way
greater than words
December rides high

There’s a melody
coming my way
greater than words
December rides high

You write upon me
I rise within you
Arrows of fire
find their mark

Nights are stronger
making days lighter
Like the sun
we rise and fall

There’s a melody
coming my way
greater than words
December rides high

There’s a melody
coming my way
greater than words
December rides high

We are poems
from the heart of the night
We are the rays
in a new dawn

We are a haven
free from all harm
We are a life
that will remain

There’s a melody
coming my way
greater than words
December rides high

There’s a melody
coming my way
greater than words
December rides high

Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017
Track Name: Fryerstown
FRYERSTOWN

When stars rise sheep become as foxes
Look to the horizon
and all the answers are in the moon

He is a traveler not a passerby
He is a seeker
not a stranger - who will leave you
in Fryerstown
in Fryerstown

Bound by the past
memories rustle through the grass
You've found the future
that refused to be present

He is a traveler not a passerby
he is a seeker
not a stranger - who will leave you
in Fryerstown
in Fryerstown

From the still of essence

grow flowers of the ages
Breath each fragrance
and feel the hurt fall away

Sometimes
the story is written faster
than you can draw breath
Sometimes
the story is written faster
than you can draw breath
in Fryerstown
in our Fryerstown

Lyrics Copyright Sean Bowley 2017
