Asymmetrical 04:57
Asymmetrical (Jean-Pierre Mercier /Jean-Pierre Mercier) We are but dust in a back room With no lights on, all curtains drawn There is nothing left of you None I could hold on to Although you sowed the best lies for yourself Like there’s more than one truth and We have no enemies but ourselves The table turned on you As you turn on everyone With traps and poison Without rhyme or reason Right your wrongs It’s not too late Love and life Exist on different planes Both aligned While asymmetrical Don’t give up I fear no pain We can call it both A different name They’re aligned While asymmetrical Once upon a million night of dread Your throbbing heart, the fear of fear Was it all in my head? Who was I talking to? Who’s drawn the lines that lead you here? The facts may be angled, blurred or scattered But all beliefs are made of fear And they will turn on you Like they turned on everyone With traps and poison Without rhyme or reason It’s no quest for facts You better pray or brace your mind for impact

Broken Open 07:30
Broken Open (Jean-Pierre Mercier /Jean-Pierre Mercier) [Dedicated to the memory of Andrea Pratt Hockett 1981-2018] Aaron is tense enough to break As every mile would get him closer Since Andrea there awaits And would love him to the altar Two pieces of a puzzle Settled, unriddled You’re broken Broken open I know you’re broken Broken open And you love the ghost that haunts your storyline Love is hard to isolate It might be lighter than helium Although science should prevail It wants to hang in the balance I wrote her in a poem So you could read her over But all that’s meant to happen It won’t last forever You’re broken Broken open I know you’re broken All broken open And you love the ghost that haunts your storyline You’re broken Broken open I know you’re broken Broken open And you love the ghost that haunts your storyline

about

Just like 'The Four Winds', this new EP is composed of material meant for 'Blanc', the follow up and alter ego album to 'Noir'. Hopefully a third EP should come later in the year to conclude this chapter of HoS.
