about

The second collection from the Absent Forest featuring new tracks and alternative tracks that didn't make it on to the final One Thousand Birds and Alexandrine albums.

Also includes an exclusive track 'Damage' recorded live in session from Sound Gallery studios that was intended originally for the Alexandrine album.

'Terrible Sea' was one of the many FLAWS recorded for Alexandrine and features master Egyptian Percussionist Hossam Ramzy on Dom Baladi, Duff and Djimbe drums.

'Neon Forest' was originally intended for the One Thousand Birds album. This version has been re-visited during lockdown and reworked with contribulations from Al Swainger (bass, ambience) and some truly unique analogue and digital birdsong sonically designed by Richard Barbieri.

The Forest also contains a couple of twisted instrumentals. G

Track Name: Damage (studio session)
Passionate love, do we run, do we stand and fight
compassionate life, do watch as it crumbles
where do we go, when we lost, what we could not lose
before we can run, we must walk on the water

If my life, is moving sideways
I'll reach the edge
and I feel like I'm drifting
out of reach

ending my days, makes me a better man than I am today
thats because, I couldn't see, all the Damage
we got damaged
I couldn't see
forgive me

Its a game
dont speak of love and I know which way I'm falling

Innocent love, do we stand
magnificent life, do we sleep as it slips away
look at his eyes, look at his hair and he walks like me (as well)
where will he go, into the wound
to get Damage

Here we go
If my life is moving sideways
I'll reach the edge
and I feel like I'm drifting
out of reach

end my days, make me a better man than I am today
thats because, I couldn't see, all the Damage
we got damaged
I couldn't see
forgive me

dont speak of love and I know which way I'm falling
into the water...

anyone....
if I hang my head down low its just because
if I hang my head down low its just because
if I hang my head down low - its just because
we got Damaged, sweetest tongue, sharpest tooth

(don't speak of love and I know which way I'm turning
before we can see, do we have to be blinded
Into my dreams, its got fields and houses
its the one thing you can't take away
I couldn't be higher).

one thing I know.
