about

**With the release of my latest track 'Eleven Years' written about my Father's passing in 2006, I decided to donate all proceeds from Bandcamp, for these two releases, to Cancer Research**

On my Birthday, 7th of the 3rd, 2017, this is the Debut EP with 17 minutes of music across 3 songs. The 3rd song goes for just over 7 minutes and is also the title track; Black Bird Rising.

I hope you enjoy it.

This is another experiment of self expression.
It's the first time that I attempt singing.
I will build this up as I go. Dancing with inspiration.

This is just the beginning of yet another creative journey.
I don't know the result.
'Fire Into The Cosmic Sun' recorded Dec 29, 2016.
'Far From The Sea Of Devils' recorded Feb 22, 2017.
'Black Bird Rising' recorded March 1, 2017.

about

Black Bird Rising Melbourne, Australia

I am strong believer that life is about the journey of creation. Black Bird Rising is yet another journey and this is only the beginning of that journey. My first attempt at singing, exploring something darker, more lyrically focused and experimenting with different sounds. I am also the guitarist in The Ugly Kings and Devil Electric. I hope you enjoy some of the sounds and stories here. Thank you ... more

Track Name: Fire Into The Cosmic Sun
HOLD MY HAND THIS WAY, HOLD MY HAND THIS WAY, MY LOVE
BUT I WAS BORN TO RUN

IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT, IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT, MY LOVE
I WAS BORN TO RUN

RIGHT INTO THAT COSMIC SUN
RIGHT INTO THAT COSMIC SUN

SNOW FIELDS AND A HAZE FILLS MY SIGHT, IT FILLS MY SIGHT
THAT PIERCING COLD, THAT PIERCING COLD UNVEILS A WARMTH
A VERY STRANGE WARMTH INSIDE

FIRE INTO THAT COSMIC SUN
FIRE INTO THAT COSMIC SUN
FIRE INTO THAT COSMIC SUN, MY LOVE
FIRE INTO THAT COSMIC SUN

AS THE DARKNESS,
AS THE DARKNESS GIVES IT WAY, TO SUNRISE

EMBRACE THAT CYCLE MY OLD FRIEND
WITHOUT THE DARK, THERE IS NO LIGHT
LOOK AHEAD MY FRIEND
LIGHT THAT COSMIC SUN ON FIRE
Track Name: Far From The Sea Of Devils
FAR FROM THE SEA OF DEVILS
THROUGH THE DOORS OF CHAOS
ETERNAL PEACE AT LAST REVEALS

AND THROUGH THE DOORS OF CHAOS IT’S MY WORLD
AND THROUGH THE DOORS OF CHAOS IT’S MY WORLD

FAR FROM FOREVER MORE
YOUNG CRIES IN MY OLD SOUL
HOLD THESE DREAMS FROM TEARING DOWN

AND THROUGH THESE DREAMS OF DARK I SEE A LIGHT
AND THROUGH THIS WAR IN ME I KNOW WHAT’S RIGHT

A YOUNG BOY SITS BY THE RIVER
DROWNING HIS THOUGHTS STONE COLD

THOUGHTS THAT GIVE BIRTH TO DREAMS
THE DREAMS, THE DREAMS THAT WEEP IN NEED

IN NEED, TO COME TO LIFE
BUT THE DEVILS, THE DEVILS HAVE DROWNED THIS RIGHT

BY THE RIVER, THAT STONE, THAT STONE COLD BLISS
WE FIGHT, WE FIGHT TO BE REVEALED

FAR FROM THE SEA OF DEVILS
THROUGH THE DOORS, THE DOORS OF CHAOS

WE FIGHT TO BE REVEALED
WE KILL THE DEVILS THAT DROWNED OUR DREAMS
WE FIGHT TO BE REVEALED
Track Name: Black Bird Rising
Throw water in the fire
and lay me down to rest

Put out the flames with your bare hands
Gently on my chest

Like a love knife
Putting to sleep my only friend
Like a love knife
Putting to sleep my only friend

The serpent with a kiss
Firmly on my lips

Like water into wine, diluting its life
drinking this tamed hurricane

A poison bite
Awakening my only friend
A poison bite
Awakening my only friend

The wounds of our lust
Bleeding memories in vain

The wounds of our past
Bleeding memories in pain

Like a love knife
Putting to sleep my only friend
Like a love knife
Awakening dreams of hurricanes

A blue bird in the forest swept away by a stream of rage
A dark horse in the distance galloping fiercely to nowhere safe
The owl of wisdom stays silent with much to say
The serpent of our past loses its scales and crawls away

And all at once,
Stare as the black bird rises
And all at once,
Stare as the black bird rises

black bird rising
black bird rising
black bird rising
black bird rising

Dark clouds fall to the sky and scorch the bright moonlight
Storm pierces though the skin like vicious claws for prey
Thunder reaches the ground like electric blinding fire
The hurricane then lifts it all into a circling pit of grey

Stare through the eye of the storm
As the black bird rises
Stare through the eye of the storm
As the black bird rises

black bird rising
black bird rising
black bird rising
black bird rising

Through this blue bird hurricane
The black bird rises
Through this blue bird hurricane
The black bird rises

black bird rising
black bird rising

The hurricane's destruction to the end of the horizon
Deafening silence through this land, invincible wall obstruction
Handshake between nature and man, pave a way to new beginnings
Fear lends its way to rising new meanings

Through this blue bird hurricane
black bird rises
Through this blue bird hurricane
The black bird rises

black bird rising
