Echoes of Cabaret meld with hope and doom, but the way remains clear. The specter recognizes distant images from another space in time, as the many notes unfold. As voyeurs into the past, our electric and modern selves find appropriate corners from which to listen and observe. The lyrics warn of an ever perilous, pervading future, which we humans consciously and unconsciously create…
“Ours are poetic lyrics addressing the conflict between nature and technology, human regrets and error. References to Prophecy and The Apocalypse loom of yet uncertain doom. Albeit earth and its creatures face danger and the human spirit is in peril, the message these lyrics impart can be simultaneously confrontational, challenging and comforting...
Searching minds propel our collective destiny.
...No role models loom largely. We have
always lived outside the box, and are
likely to remain so."
