Update: Building the secret door.


Image info: Taken from a photoshoot I did this weekend in the upper tower.


A little Monday update on a few current things in the Hadder camp.


Let me start by saying that I heard something this weekend that really sunk into my bones and I’ll share it. “If you want to know what the road ahead looks like, ask someone who’s been there.” That statement has a bit of humility to it, and humbleness. We’re all on our own to some degree, but the roads we carve and the dreams we have are not exactly original. The very premise of a dream and idea is universal. Your hillside might look different and the road you carve might be unique and different, but there are many roads that have been cut before you.. some you’ll even cross into while your clearing your own. Anyway, just something I've been thinking about.


New Ramsay Material Update: I was a bit side tracked this week with the new Ramsay/Evermore song that came from that dream I had last week. I think it’s called “Hell fall”, at least that’s what the words are saying at the moment. I was hoping for something a little less dramatic on the word side, but that's what came out. It took all my love and attention this weekend. It was a lot of fun to dive into it. I've posted some updated lyrics below, Revision II of the lyrics. The original lyrics are more poem based and generally slowly change as the poem and words need to dress the bones of the music. There's a Rev 1 mix listening party in process. (I put a little clip in the video below).


The new “City of Fire” track sat idle while I rehearsed the solo I had written for it, I suppose I could track a sloppy version of it, but I had some pleasant hours sitting by the fire training my fingers to play the solo I had imagined and written. This song is really close to being released, just needs some details and listening time. I suppose the new Ramsay track did interfere with me completing it this weekend, which was the original plan, but it was a great and willing distraction fueled by creativity in it's finest form. Something I generally gravitate to above all other things.


Stargazer: Music Video - Waiting on audio mix from Mr. Black so that I can finalize video.


As I stated last week, I'm boarding up the tower soon as I get ready for a little pilgrimage in the Klevermore mountains. Hope to complete all three before I find myself in the woods without a net. Wish me luck. Enjoy the video clip of "Hell fall" - Rev 1.

Video Info: A little sketch of “Hell Fall” Rev 1 - verse 1… Something I liked although I did other variations I’m loudly listening too. The track is talking loudly now.


"Hell Fall"

ramsay/evermore


Oh the powers that be

might have carved every key

But didn’t know that I built my own door..

And though the tower is cracked

From the weight of her stack

There’s a way out I know under the floor


The bridges burning

The bridges burning

The bridges burning

The bridges burning


There’s truth inside a lie that tells it all

Oh (past) well the best we have is nothing more

Than Hell fall


oh were caught in a trap

bested by the cat

Who’s over the hole you can’t see (her)

She’s waiting to pounce

And the only way out

Is to run for your life when you leave...


The bridges burning

The bridges burning

The bridges burning

The bridges burning


There's truth inside a lie that tells it all

Oh well the best we have is nothing more

Than Hell fall


On our way to midnight

On our way to hell

Oh the things we know… But never tell.
