Carsten Pieper When you like your prog to be more beautiful and/or accessible than prog-proggy, than this is for you! Melodic as hell and yes, Peter Falconer is quite a singer! That wouldn't go half the way without the solid songs of Pat Sanders. A great combination of skills ;-) Favorite track: Summer Skies.

Alrihkh There are songs on here that just honestly take my breath away—they’re such beautiful, dramatic expressions. Remedy is one of them. It can own your heart. It’s very powerful. If not for Summer Skies, it’d be my fave. Peter’s voice is great! All elements of this music are superbly performed. This is the 1st Drifting Sun album I ever heard & my fave. It’s a melodic prog masterpiece, but don’t take my word for it. Take it for a spin & find out for yourself how vibrant it is. 9+/10. Favorite track: Summer Skies.

Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) Pat Sanders' "Drifting Sun" is usually categorized as a neo-prog band, and as such it's among the best this genre has to offer. The melancholic mood emanating from the exquisite melodies and exciting orchestrations on this album is really hypnotic, taking the listener away to higher spheres. As long as there are bands like this in prog music, there's still hope that prog won't collapse in megalomaniacal nothingness. Favorite track: Wings of Hope.

In the beginning there was dark There was nothing else to see In the beginning there was dark Welcome to the start of a life of incertitude Doubtfulness clouding your eyes Tremble in your heart, and a conscience of iron and water together inside Waking up Sun in the morning it comes and Lights up a warning telling Nobody and everyone There’s a new beginning comes the sun But the shadow of the darkness begins to Creep across the morning telling Everyone and Anyone There’s a ending just behind the sun Twilight is where we find the truth Hand in hand with shadows The light for all to see Come again and come tomorow there’s a Place for all a place for none a place for Everything you ever thought was True, but then you looked and it was Nothing that you ever knew became a Lie to take your breath from you but still you Fight to find the truth behind the Darkness holds the light illuminates Illuminates the sky Twilight is where we find the truth Hand in hand with shadows The light for all to see Twilight drifting over every sensation Nothing to stop me rising Nothing to stop me sinking down Only my own hesitations Could it be a chance to make it better again Could it be a chance to make it living hell Trapped on neither side Trapped on the other side Could it be a chance to make it through again Could it be a chance to make it better again Could it be a chance to make it living hell Trapped on neither side Trapped on the other side Could it be a chance to make it through again Look beyond your endless Twilight To see the dawn beyond To see the dawn beyond Wake to start the day Look beyond the endless twilight To see the night beyond To see the night beyond Sleep your life away See the dawn beyond See the night beyond Give me peace No peace can be had in this twilight Give me peace Your peace is denied in this twilight Give me peace No peace to be had in this twilight Give me peace Look beyond your endless Twilight To see the dawn beyond To see the dawn beyond Wake to start the day Look beyond the endless twilight To see the night beyond To see the night beyond Sleep your life away Look beyond your endless Twilight To see the dawn beyond To see the dawn beyond Wake to start the day Look beyond your endless Twilight Look beyond your endless Twilight Look beyond your endless Twilight

Hope flies on an open wing Blinded to the pains of man Forward to the sun she flies Take me into your arms I never know What a life in the light feels like You alone hold the power I alone hold the key Face into the light There’s a dawn in the distance Please grant me the power Let me see what you see See the dawn beyond Far and away and anew There’s a way to get through all this Maddening, maddening Time will away for anew And a surety somewhere there’s Clarity, clarity See the dawn beyond There’s hope for the future There’s hope for the past There’s hope for forever If you make this feeling last There’s hope for the future There’s hope for the future Won’t you let me see the light? Cover my insecure Cover my doubt unsure Cover my fear alone Carry me safely home Hope flies on an open wing Blinded to the pains of man Forward to the sun she flies Take me into your arms

I wear a faded crown A cloak of smiles and laughter I dance a jaded dance Eleven ever after And beneath it all A mystery of lies A mystery of lies When you feel alone Fire in your soul Never be alone When there’s fear in your soul Hiding from those who’d save me Cower away I’m fading Time after time forgave me Fear of the truth enslave me Another side you see Another side from me And deep within my eyes A mystery of lies See how I shine so brightly Black heart concealed inside me Now you will cheer and praise me Morrow the fear betrays me Take a look inside my looking glass There’s another world inside, you see I dance a jaded dance I wear a cloak of smiles and laughter Always twilight in my looking glass But I never know if light or dark is rising So I dance my jaded dance Beneath my cloak of smiles and laughter Another side you see Another side from me And deep within my eyes A mystery of lies Take a look inside my looking glass There’s another world inside, you see I dance a jaded dance I wear a faded crown A cloak of smiles and laughter I dance my jaded dance Hiding from those who’d save me Cover my crown that’s fading Time after time forgave me Fear of it all enslave me See how I dance so brightly Jaded and cold enflames me Now you would cheer and praise me Mystery of lies betrays me

Soldiers 07:23
When night follows day, I hear the calling, calling, to go This twilight alone, it sees me falling, falling, and slow. Shine it aloud, moonlight in the day, shine it aloud, shadows in the neverwhere The sun in the night, the storms are raging, raging Soldiers on the mountainside appear, they come for me A smile across my lips and waiting for it all to end And ever closer there's a line, I must not cross A smile across my lips and waiting for soldiers' release And ever closer to the edge, I bear this cross They must be coming for me They fade away Come back to me, come back to me, come back to me! Shine it aloud, and the light that casts a shadow will be gone Shine it aloud, and the light that casts the shadow will be gone Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight Violet light be comes the horizon so distant to me now Listen to me now Scarlet light is covering Every one Never seen before Listen to me now Blackest light is seen by the Sick and the Weakest of us all Listen to me now Hope flies on an open wing Shine it loud Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight Sun and the moon collide The dusk and dawn the night the morn. Sun and the moon collide When hope dissolves the light be gone. See, facing you, facing me, all you see, of me Nothing that you look for See inside my eyes Look in my soul. So much poverty, clearly Riches on my face Sun and the moon collide The dusk and dawn the night the morn. Sun and the moon collide When hope dissolves the light be gone. I can’t go on. It’s all so gone. The sun, the moon, the light, the dark, the dawn, the night, the twilight, is gone. All so gone. All so gone. But maybe… Maybe…

Summer Skies 10:48
A spark across the sky Telling everyone There's a new horizon Just behind the sun I look on the other side And I try to see I want to believe it's true But I can't believe Whenever I catch a glimpse Of sunlight in the sky I want to believe it's true Believe my eyes There's something ahead of me And I feel the shining light I want to believe it's true But I can't believe Hold me back and I succumb to the night again Hold me down and I will cry for the dawn again Hold me back and I succumb to the dark again Hold me down and I will cry for the dawn again Shine out to the twilight night again And face the dawn alone Look into the distance See it all There's something inside of me And I feel the healing light I want to believe it's true But I can't believe Hold me back and I succumb to the night again Hold me down and I will cry for the dawn again Hold me back and I succumb to the dark again Hold me down and I will cry for the dawn again There's something inside of me I don't understand Does the twilight hold the key? I can't believe it’s true There's something inside of me I don't understand Does the twilight hold the key? I can't believe One life I would dance in summer skies This life I would dance if only I could Last life I could be in ecstasy But this life it's just slipping away, away One life I would dance in summer skies This life I would dance if only I could Last life I could be in ecstasy But this life, this life… There's a hope that's inside of me There's a light alive And if I wake to see the day again I'll break the endless twilight I could dance in the summer skies If only I believed I could live in this ecstasy But it’s slipping away. Break away the pain When you believe it, When you believe it. Oh, Life in love again The way you believe it, When you believe it. Oh, find your love again When You believe it When you believe it Oh, Break away your pain When you believe it When you believe it There's something inside of me I can feel the healing light I want to believe it's true I almost believe

Remedy 05:18
A secret world within my dream A tear right through the veil The time extending through the years I can feel it’s Meant to be Oh, I’m still hanging on A smile to camera Shimmering Shivering Find me a remedy Let go, Let go Find me the remedy Let go, Let go There’s something inside of me Let go, Let go Reflecting the energy Let go, Let go Find me the remedy An aging actor in the tavern bar A man with nothing left to lose He asks if I have seen his birthday card And I’m so sorry that I cannot help him with his blues I’ve sunk again, but moving faster now The wolves are howling for my soul A green mosaic paranoia screen I can’t forget I have all the control There are things that I’m not telling you Talking to you through the glass Heat and shiver let it go, Crystallise my vision fast Understand the things they’re warning me I seen the light from through the veil I’ve seen the darkness on the other side I’ve seen the consequence of holding on for ever and ever Let go, Let go Find me the remedy Let go, Let go There’s something inside of me Let go, Let go Reflecting the energy Let go, Let go Find me the remedy

Outside 05:24
So easy for you So easy on the outside Looking in So easy for you So easy on the outside And you turn away Your fears are mine, your fears are mine Laugh at me Cry for me You don’t know the pain that I’ve been living in It's not that easy to imagine as you think Take away the judgement that you give Pushing forward I can see you standing there and Reaching out your hand but only to take it away You deem me to be too unworthy of your grace, Your mercy You’ve a lot to learn about Love. You can't help me Stand on the outside Your love, only say the word. Reaching forward I can see you standing there and Take away your hand to mock me and punish me Why, you deem me to be too unworthy of your grace, your mercy You’ve a lot to learn about Love. You can't help me Stand on the outside Your love, nothing more than words. I can feel it’s meant to be Now I have the remedy. And I’m feeling alive. I’m feeling alive. I’m feeling alive. For the first time in such a long, long time I will make it through. Now I feel it’s meant to be Now I have the remedy And I’m feeling alive (let go, let go) I’m feeling so alive For the first time in Oh, such a long time I’ll see you on the Outside

Remain 08:10
Shining sky At last I see this sun is rising At last I see the clouds are breaking The night becomes the day Never again will the twilight enslave me Never again will your answers betray me The blinding light will make me see Split the air with a screaming cry That come tomorrow this tear in my Eye will quench every fire that you Ever set to burn the night alive Over and over I broke my spine to See in the darkness what future could be Mine, but never again will twilight Fool me with its everlasting lies How could ever I be free? When all you give to me Are questions from the other side? Now the power comes to me. From twilight take the key And make it to the other side. Now the power lies in me. At last I have the key To make it to the other side. Seven ages of fear have held me down Seven glimmers of hope and glory made me rise And the twilight covered it all, a bondage to my clarity A mask to turn me back upon myself and Lose my way in distortion But now I know, the seven ages were merely flashes of black In a sky of golden blue. I remain who I was, before Twilight led me down to you. Sun in the morning It lights up a warning Telling nobody and everyone There’s a new beginning comes the sun Another sight you see Another side of me And fading from my eyes A Mystery of Lies Look beyond the break of day See the night so far away Come and go it must go on Twilight but a moment long Day beyond the fall of night Twilight leads to light Trapped on another side Trapped on neither side Have I got a chance to make it home again Now I have the answer Now I have the key Twilight just lie it’s not a mystery Make it to another side Never trapped on either side Have I got a chance to make it home again Now I have the answer Now I have the key Twilight just lie it’s not a mystery Soldiers on the mountain Come to take me home Find a different story Now you live alone Neverending Twilight Neverending Day Neverending Darkness Come to find your way Look beyond the curtain See the shining star Listen to the sound that trickles Through the tavern bar Find the ageing actor Tell him all you saw Walk away forgetting him And learn a little more I remain in darkness I remain in light I remain in Twilight Now the ending is in sight I remain in darkness I remain in light I remain in Twilight Now the path I choose is right I remain in Twilight
