Carnival of Souls

from by Simon Shackleton



Here's a track that took longer than any other on the album to get right. It went through at least 7 different versions during the making of ... the final clincher were the original vocals that came into play and brought it into line with the other tunes on the album.


watching from afar

a starburst splits the night

passionate & reckless

jonesing for the fight, or flight,

(or freeze) … don’t you bring me down,

bring me to my knees

this spirit’s growing stronger

than you & they believe

singing in the rain

dancing in the sun

and all this time the elemental

journey’s just begun,

you’re digging through the past with your

key inside the whole …

my shapes are wild abandon in this

carnival of souls
