about

Ever wake up seconds before the alarm goes off? I do, all the time. It got me thinking that maybe the subconscious i.e. "The Timekeeper" also knows the exact moment when we'll die.

I share vocal duties on this one with UK recording artist Bentley Jones. In return, I sang with him on his track "Vortex (Stay Close to Me)" which you can hear on Spotify at bit.ly/bentleyct.

lyrics

My wings vanish and I fall from the sky
Convinced that I'll die
Body frozen as I brace for the ground
And scream without sound
With a jolt I wake up covered in sweat
And start to forget
Big boy don't be scared
'Twas only a nightmare

Narrowly escaping
The siren's blare
The timekeeper wakes me
With seconds to spare

My Jerusalem in mortar and stone
Spy Jesus' bones
Dusty ruins rough like sand in my ear
The fables and fears
My kingdoms are songs
But decades are gone
Half old and half wrong
I'm only a son
And not yet a father

Seconds, minutes, lifetimes
In dreams erode
But when comes the reaper
The timekeeper knows

Nighttime shadows
Safe from harm
Savior from the rude alarm
Time jumps backward
Time stands still
Reaper moves in for the kill.
