about

Beneath The Waves is a compilation of songs from Inkfields, a few of which were written several years before the album launch.

The themes covered in the lyrics span several topics from conservation, to personal situations, to current political issues.

There is, however, an underlying theme throughout. The artwork, related videos and songs mainly emphasise an ocean theme, in particular the need to protect our oceans.

Most of the album was written in Germany, Scotland and Sweden. It was recorded (Chamber Studio) and mastered (Castle Sound) in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Track Name: Who Is The Fire?
Broken by silence, lost in your own house
Oh you are
Searching for answers, plagued by your own self
Oh you are

Who is the cold?
Who is the fire?
Who?

Who is the cold?
Who is the fire?
Who?

The grass it is brown, brown on both sides
Yeah it is
What’s wrong with that? Give me an answer
To survive

Who is the cold?
Who is the fire?
Who?

Who is the cold?
Who is the fire?
Who?
Track Name: Snare Yourself
You hid the light, you sold your day
You veil your life in misery
Your strength is darkness, joy is pain
Who do you think you are?

Who are you? x4

Don’t you know there’s more to life?
You built a trap and snared yourself
You find your way by reading guides
Who do you think you are?

Who are you? x4

Who are you? x4
Track Name: Nights Like These
Verse 1
You are the one that took me to the place
You are the one
You chose the road to make me fall away
You are the one

Bridge
Gliding through the books like a ghost
When you gonna say where we’re gonna go

Chorus
Nights like these, oh what to wonder
Nights like these, oh what to wonder, ponder

Verse 2
You see the fault inside me, but look away
You know the truth will find me, it finds a way

Bridge
Gliding through the books like a ghost
When you gonna say where we’re gonna go

Chorus
Nights like these, oh what to wonder
Nights like these, oh what to wonder, ponder

Middle 8
Nights like these, oh what to wonder x3

Bridge instrumental

Chorus
Nights like these, oh what to wonder
Nights like these, oh what to wonder, ponder
Track Name: Gate In The Blue
Waiting for me, when they hear the sound of thunder
Taps on my door, they’ve gathered here in numbers
A flap of a wing, they’re ready for the plunder
Waiting for me, when they hear the sound of thunder

Should of set me up, to go
In the dark I’ll know
Running from the way I feel
In the dark I’ll know

A cloud on my back, that’s good I like the rain
It was meant an attack, attack that fell in vain
Thunder will sound, that day I can’t escape
It’s part of life, I’ll do the best I can

Should of set me up, to go
In the dark I’ll know
Running from the way I feel
In the dark I’ll know

Is it true what they say?

Should of set me up, to go
In the dark I’ll know
Running from the way I feel
In the dark I’ll know
Track Name: Made In China
Made In China is by no means a song to say anything against the rise of China (I like China!). It's rather a song about the arguable demise of the UK. I personally feel that the UK has turned the wrong way in some areas and is being replaced on the world stage.
Track Name: Roll Of The Dice
One little dice, another moment that changes life
One little roll, you think that you’ve found control

One little click, you know that it will not be your last
One little chance, you’re waiting for that moment now
Caught by the dice, you’re bleeding you’re cut inside you know yourself
Run for your life, forever you’re stuck inside your DIY stride

It’s just a roll of the dice x3

One last go, you’re taking a chance just like you always will
One little chance, you’re waiting for that moment now
Flee for your life, please just go, go
Run for your life, please just go, go

It’s just a roll of the dice
Track Name: Garden Of Delusion
Cold heart and twisted souls, bitter until the end
Deceived by the grimmest of all, hatred in human form
You think you’re a martyr now, dying for your own cause
I guess you’ll find your paradise, has a man with a pitched fork

Has a man with a pitched fork

Hey slave for Isis, what have you actually achieved
Your family thinks you’re a monster now, the door to your home is closed
The screams of a thousand lives will echo in your ears
I’d rather be your victim, then to live life in your shoes

Hey you, soldier, the time has come to change your mind and
Live right, tonight, drop your guns and see the light
and stop this bloodshed, your pointless journey to hell fire
Paradise has got no place for Isis
Track Name: Black Sails
Where do you think you’ll catch the oceans final straw?
When do you think you’ll finally fill your quota?
Where do you think a road of greed and plunder goes?
Don’t you know you cannot tame the ocean?

Who are we fighting for?
Why do we scar ourselves?

(Background voice):
Should have seen the star x3
Fire, star
Should have seen the star

Black sails gliding through the dead of night
Moonlight requisition as if by right
Dredging homes ’til the morning comes.
What will you do when there’s none left to give?
Lately they’ve been watching you, making ready, holding through
Black sails sailing through the dead of night
Dredging forever for money and might.

What do you say when you feel it’s over?
What do you think now you’re going over?
Tossing, twirling, twisting through the murky depths
Tables turning, better beg for mercy!

Who are we fighting for?
Why do we scar ourselves?

(Background voice):
Should have seen the star x3
Fire, star
Should have seen the star

Black sails gliding through the dead of night
Moonlight requisition as if by right
Dredging homes ’til the morning comes.
What will you do when there’s none left to give?
Lately they’ve been watching you, making ready, holding through
Black sails sailing through the dead of night
Dredging forever for money and might.
Track Name: Dream Catcher
Dream Catcher

Is this the line?
The one that’s been drawn on the surface?
It’s already numbered.

What did you want?
Was it just another clone,
On the belt inside your factory?

Every time you wake up, feeling like it’s over
Keep on going, with all your might
When they try to break you, follow you and fake you
Let them now that you can bite
And it seems like, feels like
We have lost ourselves
And we’ve gone the wrong way
Manufactured life

Want something new?
Then break the mould that has been given
And put it on no more
Come out of dark
And see the world that has not risen
It’s better than before

Every time you wake up, feeling like it’s over
Keep on going, with all your might
When they try to break you, follow you and fake you
Let them now that you can bite
And it seems like, feels like
We have lost ourselves
And we’ve gone the wrong way
Manufactured life

Let’s take a picture now
Stop!
Wrong shows, wrong hair, wrong face, wrong you

I want a clone, just like the others
Change shoes, change clothes, change face, change you

Every time you wake up, feeling like it’s over
Keep on going, with all your might
When they try to break you, follow you and fake you
Let them now that you can bite
And it seems like, feels like
We have lost ourselves
And we’ve gone the wrong way
Manufactured life
Track Name: Running To The Fight
Where the mountain meets the sea
The rift is deep for those that flee
Climbing up forgotten paths
For misty views

Couldn’t seem to find a door
I’d build my own, but I’m not sure
The key is rusty through and through
This can’t be it

Running to the fight x2

It’s time to go my common fly x2

Go x6
Track Name: House In The Dunes
When you come through the lights and you hear all the sounds
The fool in this sight you won’t ever regret
Filled by the hope and the promises made
When you know that you’ve found a house in the dunes
When you know that you’ve found a house in the dunes

One little man with an open mind, could seal the path forever
One little box with an open drawer could steal the thought and pleasure

When you see through the smiles and the glazed over eyes
People entrapped is a thought they despise
Kept by a mixture of hope and fear
There’s nowhere to go, but the house in the dunes
There’s nowhere to go, but the house in the dunes

One little man with an open mind, could seal the path forever
One little box with an open drawer could steal the thought and pleasure
