This track is really an experiment, since during the pandemic most of the social contacts suffered and music and arts were, and still are, affected the most. As a result, my projects were delayed and I decided to try and not rely on anyone to finish them, although it was not an easy decision (and I'm still hopeful for future collaborations to restart!). It's also the first time I attempt to sing a whole song. My voice is fragile, and there is lot to improve, however I am happy to share this one, waiting to re-record it with a much better singer!

Some of my influences are clear, but I'll let you decide where this one comes from, and where it will bring us next. I hope you'll enjoy it!


Wondering afar the lake
How can I forgive myself
Shadows of insanity
Haunt me...

Broken dreams and reality
Empty spaces and promises
Knowledge of the wasted opportunities...

Like dust in the wind I lost control
Walking on the sand I'm sinking in

Look behind those closed doors
There's no safer place to go
The curtains of ours masterpiece are closing in...

Like dust in the wind I lost control
Walking on the sand I'm sinking in
