about

Maelstrom is inspired by a number of fleeting moments and inexplicable moods that I found myself in.

Track Name: Flickering Lights
Watching the lights pass
Long, flickering shafts of light
In a hurry
On their way to nowhere

Eyes full of woe, welled up with tears
Eyes full of terror and uncertainty control these beams of light
But they too are beams
Darting here and there, going places
Working, dreaming, finding love
Then the light fades and sometimes abruptly ends

How fragile are we?
Yet we trudge through these long days
Wasting countless minutes
Finding ways to distract ourselves
Until the light goes out
Searching for meaning
Distracting ourselves from the pain
From the loneliness

Yet these beams do experience more
Beauty, love, self expression, wonder
We fill our time with these things
We pass our time
Waiting for that strange moment
When the light goes out
