The Surrogate ft. Skyline (Half Moon)

from Sands of Time by Cyril the Wolf



I wrote this song ages ago. This is the first song I wrote on 5 string bass, and then the lyrics were about a game called Grandia. This also has the alternate tag line (The Tale of a Dream Warden)

Two reasons why I'm re-releasing it:
1) The lyrics and vocals sucked huge large bad things before, so I really wanted to do the song I wrote justice. I had some assistance then but still could not pull it off.
2) Skyline has a 7-string guitar which is necessary for songs like this, becuase I wrote it on 5-string bass utilizing the Lowest string which is lower than traditional tuning.

The lyrics are about some ideas I got from a now-defunct tumblr blog thedreamwarden.tumblr.com and my curiosity of who kept track of dreams while Luna was on the moon.


Another day goes by
Without any changes
Beneath a blank blue endless sky
The light bleaches all to gray

I trip and fall in the dust
My throat thirsts for a flood
Why was I left here to die
My wings are broken I can't fly

During the night I can no longer stand
I hear her voice calling beyond the sand
She gives me hope though it's been so long...
I need to hear her song... again.

I remember when I didn't fight
Looked up the the night lived by moonlight
But then it seemed I was the only one
Who preferred th e dark to the bright sun
The moon was through with being ignored
So she recruited me to fight in her war
Now I see her face etc hed in her sphere
In this desert of sorrow I shed a lonely tear

Exiled to this scorching land
When her ambition proved to be too grand

My eyelids grow heavy I have not much longer
Her voice rings my head growing steadily stronger

No more lies...
I tell no lies...

It's always night when I cannot stand (in thi s land)
Her voice sings on when my eyes fill with sand (understand)
I hope she remembers though it's been so long (so long)
And I can hear her song.
I need to hear her song... again.

Now reborn:
The dream warden lives for harmony
The dream warden lives for night
