Song Description

Deep lyrics singed in the Peter Gabriel style in a Pop-Rock alternative overall style.

Story Behind the Song

This song was born in 2006 for music (by Roberto Canone and Massimiliano Baudissard for the rhytmical section) and lyrics (by Bobby Dodd, aka Desolate Soul) as separate projects. And as music, a collab between The WImshurst's Machine and the Chicago artis

Lyrics

Beneath the Surface

She stumbles around in the candlelight,
Singing lullabies with those sad, sad eyes,
Trying to comfort the scared little girl,
She keeps hidden in the shadow of her lies�

Picking at the bones of her childhood dreams,
Their innocence stripped away by poison rain,
She fell prey to desperation's seductive trap,
And now her fragile soul can only scream in vain�

Chorus
Beneath the surface,
Neglected and protected,
A harbour for the tempted,
Beneath the surface,
Hope battles against despair,
In a frantic love hate affair,
Beneath the surface,
Yea beneath the surface�

Drawn to the moon she's consumed by the night,
Leaving reality behind to escape to an illusion,
She descends into the world of missing persons,
Where all she can offer is her own confusion�

Chorus

There's a burned out candle in the light of morning,
When the sad echoes of lullabies have long since died,
And the little girl finally emerges from her own shadow,
To whisper, 'take my hand and let me be your guide'�
