about

This is an E.p. that came out around the same time as Part-Time Paratrooper. It is just as raw but with a different vibe. You can hear it is unmastered and naked and I like that.
The songs pop and I still play them to this day, though I never play them the same way twice and changes occur over the years, still the soungs, at their core; Rock :)

about

Ravensong Luxembourg

Ravensong is an eclectic, one man, solo project, with a focus on alt rock and rhythm. I have written songs for years and love the art and craft of it. I am interested in dynamics and crescendo and a touch of rule breaking in structure and approach. Hypnotic grooves and thoughtful lyrics that are often ironic and layered finish of the sonic scapes I try and create on a bed of rock!!- Enjoy! :) ... more

Track Name: Upon the Whispering Wind
UPON THE WHISPERING WIND

‘I know my seas are dried’ she whispered as I cried.
‘The fallen leaves of me are browning in your light.’
And shame bestowed his name in quartet melody,
Upon the whispering winds I sing the final sins of me
of me of me of me of me

To see; upon the whispering wind
To be; and qualify me again
To see…to see…to see…to see

‘I know my seas are dry’ she whispered as I cried.
And all the animals make water their new vice
And shame he lived his name in a mountain castle of ice
Upon the whispering wind he qualified his life
To feed…to breathe….to feel…..to see

To be; upon the whispering wing
To feel; and qualify me again
To see…to see…to feel
To see…to see…to be real

To see to see to feel to feel to be to be to be real…….:
To see, to see, to see, to see, to see, to see real….
Track Name: Foolish Ways
MY FOOLISH WAYS

See unto the breeze
Potion for the little sane
For my evil ways

Give me a pass to be free
You’ll never change the price you pay
For my foolish ways

Ummm my foolish ways, my foolish ways

Give me the starter’s fee
It’s beckons uncomfortably to your evil ways
Mo bro Mo bro, glow brow of the need
Come and get it if you please
My foolish ways

Oh come and get it if you please
My foolish ways
My foolish ways

(modulation 4 bar return)
SOLO

Give me a way to be free
And consequently nothing gained from my evil ways
Erase……

My foolish ways, my foolish ways, my foolish ways
Track Name: It's Alright
IT IS ALRIGHT
When conversation ends
We recede
And wonder what it means
...what is love?
In a moment in your eyes
Is enough
To remind me what it means

So be what you feel
Unlock the love not dread and she said
‘it’s what you feel
And there’s nothing between us that we don’t describe in our lives
We are searching for the moment lost in time
And we’ll see if we look into our eyes
Then it’s alright
If we look into our eyes it’s alright

With conversing as a friend we can breathe
No questions do you need …What is love?
In a moment shared in time
It’s enough to show me the place of dreams

So be what you feel
Unlock the love not dread and she said,
‘it’s what you feel
And there’s nothing between us that we don’t describe in our lives
We are searching for the moment lost in time
And we’ll see if we look into our eyes
Then it’s alright
If we look into our eyes it’s alright
Track Name: Prayer as a Systen of Thought
PRAYER… AS A SYSTEM OF THOUGHT

My best friend died at sea, died inside her fantasy to play sane
We’ll regret choices made dance the foolish serenade as we pray

As we pray….

We’ll pretend it is all a game; motions potion of the sane
And we’ll pray
We’ll regret choices made; motion’s no longer a potion fading away
And we’ll pray…..
Track Name: Atone
ATONE

I’ve looked into your mind for the very last time
My senses numb with the knowledge of my crime
And I have contemplated race and the grace that forms distaste
With the knowledge that all of your anger’s misplaced

And I’m killing something and that something is you (yeah)
Are we more than an animal abused?

You’re killing something , that something is you (yeah)
And is it true that the something’s just an animal abused?

Breaking down is such an easy thing to do,
I said, ‘look at we two. And know is solitude the call?
And there is something in the way you misconstrue (I said) simple truth.
You’ll use my memory like a tool , like a tool !’shouts the fool.

I’ve looked into your mind for the very last time
World is crashing down on these sense of mine
We contemplated race and grace and the forms of distaste, misplaced.
With the knowledge that all of our angers misplaced.

‘N we’re killing something and that something ‘s we two
Is the memory just a tool to reuse?

Breaking down is such an easy thing to do,
I said, ‘look at we two. And said is solitude our call?
And there is something in the way you misconstrue (I said) simple truth.
We’ll use the memory like a tool, like a tool!’
Shouts the fool!
Shouts the fool!

If breaking down is something only the lonely do
Well running from redemption is the coward inside you
No vision for the future screams emotional abuse
But in a poisoned irony the words came spilling from you

You know you must atone to grow
(You must atone to grow)
You must atone to grow (ah ah)
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow you must atone to know

Singing in the essence (essence)
Springing from; to me (to me)
She looked into my eyes she said,
‘Get away for me!’

You know you must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
atone to grow
tone to grow
You must atone to grow you must atone to know

Tone to grow oh oh oh ohhh

You know you must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow you must atone to know

ATONE!! (oh aoh ah) ATONE!! (oh aoh ah) ATONE!! (oh aoh ah) ATONE!! (oh aoh ah)

You know you must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow

Atone to grow , Atone to grow, Atone to grow, Atone to grow!
