I STARE AT CROWDS OF PEOPLE PASSING BY HERE IN MY THOUGHTS I AM FROZEN NO VIABLE SOLUTION IN MY MIND IT’S LIKE A CURTAIN DROPPING DOWN ON STAGE I AM SAILING IN THIS FOG THAT’S EATING UP MY BRAIN AND AS THE TIME GOES BY I AM THINKING OF THE BEAUTY OF HER EYES .YOUR EYES, SO BRIGHT AND WHEN TOMORROW COMES I WANT TO START THE DAY LOOKING AT YOU‘CAUSE I AM WAITING FOR AN ANSWER DON’T YOU SEE ME DON’T YOU HEAR MY VOICE WHEN I THINK OF YOU SO LOUD THAT I AM CRYING IN THE SKY I WANT YOU HERE WITH ME . AND AS THE LIGHTS IN TOWN ARE GLOWING IN THE DARK THERE’S A FALLING STAR I THREW IN YOUR DIRECTION AND WHEN TOMORROW COMES I WANT TO START THE DAY LOOKING AT YOU‘CAUSE I AM WAITING FOR AN ANSWER DON’T YOU SEE ME .DON’T YOU HEAR MY VOICE WHEN I THINK OF YOU SO LOUD, THAT I AM CRYING IN THE SKY I WANT YOU HERE WITH ME

Bolero 03:18
When you want back it's critical Want to look down, done feeling low One night back I lost control All around town that girl is stoned Want to maybe lick that silver bowl Took too much, didn't do no good Made a wrong turn before I could go back Jack and do one more just like you said House is on fire I'm leagues away Hope my cats get out OK Had a little thing that's on the side Want to taste some of that family pride To my surprise the habit took Now I've got to deal with that evil book Don't lie to me, it's Friday night I'm cold and high, I need a surprise, don't doctor me How many time do I have to drag it down Deep to the family pride don't waste it Climb to the shore from the ocean floor Staying away just long enough to live it

Sink Or Swim 04:00
SINK OR SWIM BEFORE THE WATER GETS TOO DEEP LIVE OR DIE THEY WON’T GIVE YOU ANOTHER TRY TURN BACK NOW OR IT WILL TAKE YOU OUT OF SIGHT IN BETWEEN LIES THE REASON WHILE WE’RE THROUGH WE MAY NOT SEE HOW MUCH WE GREW IT’S NO CRIME IF WE CHANGE OUR WAY THAT MUCH ChrusI T’S NOT A TALE FROM A FAR AWAY LAND IT’S NOT ANYTHING THAT WE COULDN’T STAND UP OR DOWN MAKES YOU LIVE WITHIN A FROWN TURN BACK TIME THERE IS MORE THAT YOU COULD FIND Chrus IT’S NOT A TALE FROM A FAR AWAY LAND IT’S NOT ANYTHING THAT WE COULDN’T STAND WE GOT SO MUCH WE LIKE TO BLAME BUT SOON IT WILL BURN JUST LIKE A FLAME

The Hydra 04:13
You were called from the solar centre From a mold of urantian design You were cold and you love it When you burst on the scene I was wrong not to face it You were what I’d call a friend On the wall formed the shape of a hydra On the small of her back was a line It was strange not to waste it I was there all by myself When the sun came up I was still listening to that song Baby take these off my hands for good Queen of grace has seen and understood Silver trumpets rang across the dome Sweeter by far than my precious home
6.
Innocent Eye 03:45
You press the mistakes of the innocent eye No wanting no waiting, only to draw the line If I hear the music then you force the rhyme And you want my action, take it, I won't mind Were you broken before By the rose or the gods of war In a rush you let it go Do you want to hear the ocean roar Words of the ancients that burn in your mind The sound that you're chasing lately it ain't mine When up goes the needle and down turns the light Your heavenly body this time you won't find And when I'm lying girl it's true I float upon the stormy seas You broke down, I woke up, I want you Experience paws her mane by the river

All For Love 04:33
One day I will take you to my dreams So I can show you how So I can show you how floating and flying is easy One I can tell you my secret how I can walk on clouds So i can show you how climbing the sky is so easy So I can show you we're floating and flying for love, love, love,love…. One day when we'll walk on the thin ice we will be gliding and smiling recalling the sweet things in life One day i will swim inside your soul Taking the pictures of your secret emotions Only to know you've been running and crying for love.

about

Album Notes
Songwriter/producer Filippo Gaetani and former Blinker the Star frontperson Jordon Zadorozny formed transatlantic pop duo SheLoom in 2008. Gaetani, residing in Tuscany, and Zadorozny, living in Canada, met twice at Jordon's French Kiss Studio in 2009 for whirlwind 10 day sessions. However, the bulk of the album was recorded separately, with files being sent back and forth over the internet. Their debut album, "Seat Of The Empire" was released digitally in July 2010 by Minty Fresh and is now available in classic digipack mastered at Abbey Road studios and re-issued by Rayrecordings. Boasting a filmic, art rock bedrock tempered with elements of new wave and orch-pop, their debut album has been compared to iconic pop-progressive groups Fleetwood Mac, XTC, Todd Rundgren, and Yes.
