'Memory Sweeper' video release [Arcadian Resonance]

as featured on the album 'Arcadian Resonance'There's a definitely an art to life. A fine line between knowing what to leave from your past and what's worth holding onto.

This song is all about letting go and releasing whatever it is that has a hold over you and stops you reaching your true potential.

All life is about rhythm and cycles. Seasons come and go, the sun rises and sets and we will all  eventually meet our final cycle. Although, someone put it far better than I.

You can only lose what you cling to.
-Buddha

This marks the second installment of #ONEaWEEK - I hope you enjoy the journey this Playfio track will take you on - magically brought to life by the hugely talented David O'Donnell (Writer and Director) - please subscribe to David's channel, see credits below.



The more you cling to the stories of your past, the more of the present moment you lose.

Memory Sweeper Lyrics

Verse

Sweeping up your memories,
Filling up on empty,
Missing how the world ticks by.
Paid your last respects, how
Feeling all regret, now,
Time to let the old ones die.

Thinking about the future,
Dining on your past life,
Enough to make a grown man cry.

Seeping out your feeling,
Writing on the ceiling,
Tell me when the time is right.

Try and reach an audience,
Floating in the chorus,
How to set the world alight.

Chorus

Take my King
Take my Soul
Reach up high
Let it Go

Take my Thoughts
Take my Life
Reach inside - feel alive

Interlude

Inside I know what I should do
Although my thoughts will often stew
If only I could see things through
Who knows the dreams that will come true

'Nameless Man' video release [Arcadian Resonance]

'Nameless Man' features on 'Arcadian Resonance', the second studio album.
Very late to the party for this track. For quite some time I had locked in 15 tracks for this 'Arcadian Resonance' album with plenty of tracks half written, not quite making the final cut, after some last minute deliberation I decided to include this progressive rock number.

Nameless Man, although the last song to add to this collection, certainly warrants its place and I'm very glad I gave it a second chance once Claude Etienne had worked his magic on the guitar, it's inclusion seemed a no-brainer.

I like to think of this space odyssey as the theme tune to the Album cover to 'Arcadian Resonance' which took a fair few hours to design and decide on! The album artwork, with it's nod to the first album and my late Grandfather's 1940's Dance band 'Arcadia' is artistically finessed by the fantastic film craft of Adam Stern.

This first music video is my first visual offering of my #ONEaWEEK music video extravaganza!



Namesless Man Lyrics

The nameless man has fallen,
No trace will ever come.
Your clock stops moving forward,
Pull back the setting sun.

The dust and sand will cover,
Your footprints in her mind.
A word that's never spoken,
A sight to rule the land.

They say he travelled sideways,
Skipping star to moon.
A timepiece on his person,
A tool to stop the world.

The nameless man has spoken,
An echo through the land.
The pied piper of Saturn,
Is nowhere to be found.

They say he talked in riddles,
Spoke on higher planes.
Connected to the ether,
And wrote a thousand graves.

The restless never wander.
Their voices never drown.

"A breathtakingly emotional space ride with dazzling effects and true heart." - Starburst International Film Festival
