Return To Type

by Ethers Edge

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    "Return To Type" is a complete album rather than a collection of tracks that tells the story of someone struggling with their demons. After a drunken encounter they become besotted by a new flame, but their shadowy former life returns and consumes them once more - only this time there was no-one to save them from themselves.

    The CD comes with some high quality artwork painted by an amazing artist - Lawrence Coulson. The insert is a 20 booklet with full lyrics.

    Also includes immediate download of 10-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

about

The debut album "Return To Type" is now complete after over a year of what turned out to be a fantastic journey through exciting new music and meetings with some amazing people. A journey that will never be forgotten!

To start with a few small ideas and get encouragement and positive comments from so many people constantly drove the music forward. Each time a few notes came together, another sonic landscape began to unfold until the album started to take the shape that it is now in.

Track Name: Here I Am
Here I am, now let me come inside
I will stay a while, I will blow your mind
Your eyes are alive and your fire is wild
Take me by the hand, come with me my child

Entwined
Bodies lashed together, one entity
Combined
Harvest desire embracing ecstasy

Your quivering flesh under flowing dress
Riding with the beat, writhing with the sound
Warmth and lust carried on your breath
Enticing touch of an elusive temptress

Together
Minds souls and bodies find beginnings
As beings
Two join as one with heightened feelings

I am, I’m by your side at last
The past, the pain all fades away
As the melting sun at night
It falls, away from sight

Here, by my side and satisfied
Stay, stay with me a while
Feel the warmth of rushing blood inside
Release the power of our natural tide

I am, draped in sheets that hold your warmth
Your form stretched bare, without a care
A glint within your eye says come again
Please, come back to me
Track Name: The Routine
Everything is in place
Memory accessed
We’re ready to go
Just start the routine

Go away to fetch
Then return from work
An illusion of freedom
Recursively run

Just run the routine
Over and over
Just run the routine
Over again

Build up a future
Assemble our lives
Available now
Instant gratification

We follow the path (we follow the lies)
Laid down by our leaders (spoken by our leaders)
Satisfaction
Guaranteed

Just run the routine
Over and over
Just run the routine
Over again

Can you see the chains
That constrict my freedom?
Do I still remain?

Just break
The routine.
Track Name: Whitewashed Everything
Old ways eroded overnight
Our worlds combine, mine falters
Faces fade in memory
Ghostlike shapes in empty lands

Never meant for you to be my substitute
Distraction from dark silences
Your voice becomes my purple haze
New meaning to my life

Coming over me, clouding fears that I could not see
Pushed away the old to make way for all the new
Whitewashed everything
Whitewashed everything

Lights blaze blurring my vision
In time these eyes will focus
For now I’ll stumble joyfully
Enraptured by your smile
Track Name: Facing Reality
Walking around
Watching my actions affecting other peoples lives
Is it enough to look at the old ways
Savour the daze
Embrace the tunnel vision gaze

But now I’ve the embraced the comforts that this way can bring
Surrounding myself, hiding the insecurities within

Facing reality
It’s not what my dreams were made of

Break the mirrors to see what’s behind them
World’s disfigured, you’ll see that I’m right here
Can’t just keep going following all the white lines
I’m facing reality, and it’s not what I longed for
Facing reality, and I can’t stand it any more, no

Just leave me alone
Just leave me alone
Just leave me alone
Cause I’m going now

I hope
I hope
You’ll wake up
Yourself
Track Name: Return To Type
Time to return to my old ways
Time to return to my stomping ground
Rekindle the old flames as I find them
Rejuvenate the burn flooding through my veins

No more 9-5 to constrict me
No more bills to pay, no more shirts and ties
The only pressure is to find enjoyment
With anyone who’s free as I’m walking by

I can never get enough of this
What made me leave this old life I’ve missed

Return to type
Revert
To quell the turmoil deep inside

Racing down the roads of my own brain
Connecting all the lines while my body weeps
Collapsing on the floor a mortal protest
Still floating over wrecks that block my memory lane

Embracing the small glimpses of the blurred world
While clinging to the floor as the room spins by
Determined to explore the darkest corners
On a journey to expand and explore my mind

I can never get enough of this
What made me leave this old life I’ve missed

Return to type
Revert
To quell the turmoil deep inside
Return to type
Revert

This is not rejection of you
I know you hurt
But there are scars that still remain
An emptiness of life unfulfilled
I must return to face the many demons of my past

Must clear dejection of who I
Have now become
I should have tried and not succumbed
My only fear is that I will
Not make it back this time with no one there to save me from myself

Return
Return
Return
Return to type
Track Name: Open Wide
I’ve got this feeling
It’s never ending
I’ve been here before
Despite what you say
I know
I deserve much more

Rapid demise, if you’re gonna take my life
Then just take it away
My souls disturbed all my future has been burned
Facing pity everyday

Four walls encroaching
My minds exploding
Time to float again
Just give me my fix
Somehow
Wipe my sweating brow

I’ll close my eyes and pretend I’m still alive
With my weight on my feet
Don’t see me cry, let my problems pass you by
Being graceful in defeat

Open wide
Can you see what I’m doing
Open wide
It’s not just you that I’m needing

Panic’s increasing
My grips releasing
Time to score some more
My heart is racing
My feet are pounding
Breaking on the floor

Past broken windows, furtive glances check for chances
Of chemical rendezvous
My conscious mind remains blind never knowing
What I’m going to do

Pushing further into myself
Seeking
Removing
What’s my name?

Driving onward into darkness
Reaching
Leaving’s
All the same
Moving further into darkness
Track Name: Don't Follow
Seeing red
Eyes rolled looking inwards
Tears I’ve shed
Fleeting glimpses
All this panic surrounds me
Final twitches

Don’t leave me here sitting, searching anymore
My normal has changed, heart bleeding, must be pure

Light is fading
Sensations come flooding
Door re-opens
Moving backwards
Into time once abandoned
Pain returning

Don’t leave me here sitting, searching anymore
My normal has changed, heart bleeding, must be pure
My given time must fade away
Like the passing of stars gone astray
Don’t leave me here sitting, waiting anymore

Waiting here for someone else
Patiently watching things drift by

Don’t come, don’t follow
Leave skies marked with sorrow
Don’t come, don’t follow
Leave skies marked with sorrow
Track Name: Life's Light
Stuck in darkened room
Beside myself
What more can I assume
Is on the broken shelf
Searching for the door
The walls are closing in
Peace is near

Life’s light
Melting away
Dreamland
Comes to me this day

Stillness in my tomb
Inside myself
White flowers still in bloom
Resting upon my chest
My mood ‘comes more subdued
More shade engulfing me
Dreams are near

Life’s light
Melting away
Dreamland
Comes to me this day

Unborn in mortal coil
Not surfacing
In silence I will call
No loved ones answering
So low yet still I fall
My demons chasing me
Release is near

Life’s light
Melting away
Dreamland
Comes to me this day
It comes my way
