Peter Adriaens This one had me puzzled for quite a while. It takes a few listens to start to comprehend what exactly they are doing. It's a kind of alt jazz poppy prog with a twist. Sounds like Steely Dan, early John Mayer, Perfect Beings, and foremost Segrov. But than again, they don't sound like that at all. Highly recommended! Favorite track: Tears Of A Phoenix.

Track Name: Stream
I want to…

To live
To love
To swim

All through the stream of time
All through the day and night

I want to…

To give
To dance
To fly

All through this twisting maze
All through the purple haze
All through the stream of time
All through our endless nights

I want to…

love
Track Name: The Near Edge Of Time Suite: Until I Awake, Orbit's Range, Near Edge of Time
Until I Awake:

Right now I cant choose
thinking back to who, how, and where
I say what's the use
cause I'm jaded with my cares
Deprived by fear and doubt that has me acting on the past
At least I know I've figured out my lie is on the inside.

Thinking by and by
yes I'm thinking of what when and why
Of the lights going out
the faint glow like a cigarette in the dark
All my plans that demise
the future's sullen cry
are removed from choice
that has me reaching for the sky

Until I awake winter's hibernation…

Right now, if you'd choose
perk up your damn attitude
A social solution
for our philosophical pollutions
Politics will scream and shout in love or in snide
Forgetting what it's all about their lie is on the inside.

Can we live today?
for that was yesterday
folding under pride
lies on the inside
Until I awake far out in orbits range,
on the edge of time, is where I hope to find

Orbit's Range:

Melt me softly with your tones
Till thereʼs nothing left but bone
Throw your thoughts to the wishing well
Return me from this living hell

I am spinning out, to nowhere fast
My tether’s lanced

Hold me tight and don’t let go
Before I stray too far from home
I need your helping hand
To get me through this foreign land

Spin out of orbits range
With nothing ever changed
I’m going nowhere fast
Don't want to feel the strain

I am holding on to nowhere's past
please cut the cord

Spin out of orbits range.
Where everything has changed
I am finally free at last

The Near Edge of Time:

Waking to a new sunrise
I lay back and close my eyes
You come to me putting me at ease and pain fades away

Sitting' in cool of day nothing at all left for me to say
Far out of sight, my mind
takes flight I'm back on track

Standing by on the near edge of time I watch myself rewind
Falling slow I let go,
through the well again

Take a stand out loud I cry
Why I sigh
Why I sigh
Raise my hands and take a dive
Into the ocean blue
Open up a world inside
Hold it high, hold it high
Letting go what's in my hold
Inspiration's ties


Sweet serenity,
take my breath away
Creativity,
let my conscience speak

Consider this in reverence
Turn the search within
It's love itself, nothing else
to which if we'd adhere

what you imagine could be free to believe
the quality in the air
bound to the atmosphere

On the near edge of time
realize
fear is obscured behind
our light that shines
Listen to the sunlight in
every note, how it corresponds
to the nature of your song
listen beyond
Take a stand out loud I cry
Why I sigh
Raise my hands and take a dive
Into the ocean blue
Open up a world inside
Hold it high
Letting go what's in my hold
Inspiration's ties

all the things circling the night
the white stars burning bright
connect with someone else
ritual like the moon
revealing all 'neath the drape
in beautiful crescent shape

Today I awake
Wield the now that's real and true
Track Name: Stranger Things
Stranger things are happening in my mind and in my dreams
Going to find myself an answer, to what it really means
Work all day and play all night, taking time to let it breathe
Stranger things are happening in my mind and in my dreams…

Lock me lock me far from everything
I am locking, blocking. I am in exile singing

Stranger things are happening and I need to let it bleed
I am a man who makes a promise I keep
Things are happening, things are happening

Love you love me love you today
Love you love you today

Stranger things are happening in my mind and in my dreams
I am a man who makes a promise, where I work behind the scenes
Have a smoke and sit in silence, where I think and drink my tea
Stranger things are happening in my mind and in my dreams

Lock me lock me far from everything
I am locking, blocking. I am in exile singing

Stranger things are happening and I need to let it bleed
I am a man who makes a promise I keep
Things are happening, things are happening

Love you love me love you today
Love you love you today

Lock me lock me far from everything
I am locking, blocking. I am in exile singing
Love me love you found in everything
I Love you, love me I am exalting
Track Name: A Stitch In Time
Open your heart greeting the day
Open your eyes let in the light

Clearing a way, energy moves
Feeling great making it last

I am airplane high above
I’ll seize each day, one by one

Open your heart greet the day
Open your eyes let in the light

I’ll take the slow train on down town
I’ll make the next train, slow it down
Track Name: Tears Of A Phoenix
Dream with me, wings of a spell
Mere memory, remembering
Take me home, back on my own
Sing softly, shed my blue skies

You’ll see when you’re all alone
In bloom in the waiting room
Eternally, though we all must die
In time we enjoy the ride

Please heal me, my poisoned wounds
Cry willfully, tears from my eyes

You’ll see when you’re all alone
In bloom in the waiting room
Eternally, though we all must die
In time we enjoy the ride

Burn brightly, reborn from the flames
Track Name: Bound To The Atmosphere
Astral lights
Initiate flight
Sitting tight
Back in the driver's seat
It's clear and bright

Conjuring reality
New and free
What is and what should be
the stars above

Destiny's rhyme in illuminate night time
the mirrored image in your eyes
enlightens my skies
follow through when love calls to you
in the dead of night's view
the ends of all truth

Astral lights
Eliminate fright
Covering
Dark space-rock seas
Inside of me

Mountains of silent moonbeams
coming clean of bitter frequencies
Releasing

Soft spoken, of guiding intuition
Drawn into bold brilliance
A rhapsody
In spite of all uncertainty
Do you feel what I feel
Never to grow old
Track Name: Back In A Dance
As the land grew dry, and the fear grew
Looking to the sky, a misfortune strew
All across the plains
Here to have a Great Dance, in the light of day

Fear has forgot to play along
We question with innocence of song
Share in the raw, raw ecstasy
Back in a dance
Eternally

Joining in Great Circle, singing to rejoice
With a tear from fear's eye, pouring out rebirth
All across the plains
Filling great wide rivers with an earthly rain

Fear has forgot to play along
We question with innocence of song
Put fear where it belongs to be
Back in a dance
Eternally
