We've been asleep too long When did the dream go wrong Where has the future gone How will we reach new dawn Shatter reality, sever our ties Invisible war being waged on our minds Trapped in the shadow we fight to survive They cannot live, we will not die Hallucination to enslave Reintegrate and make them pay Eradicate their unjust ways Illuminate with blinding rays

Astral being of energy Once a perfect entity Warped by psychic weaponry Desperate for an enemy Buried our guiding light Insidious dark divide Must reconnect with our divine Explore dimensions with senses beyond sight Ghosts inside my head Future resonating death Echoes beckon paths untread Dreaming repeating cosmic threads
3.
I am the serpent intertwined I am the wolf prepared to strike I am the word that can't be spoken I am the bond that can't be broken Born into fire We are the sea, the wave will crash We are the wind that howls at last We are the earth, ravaged raw We are the fire burning all Singularly met, ageless form discarnate Radiating rage, dawn of darkest days

LOSING SIGHT OF WHAT I’M SEARCHING FOR IS THIS THE END OR THE BEGINNING CAN’T TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PEACE AND WAR IF I’M LOSING OR I’M WINNING THE ANGEL REAPPEARED AND LIT THE PATH RETURNING TO ETERNITY THIS PATH ENCAPSULATES THE FUTURE AND THE PAST THIS PATH IS ONLY YOU AND ME LEARN TO BE UNBORN DYING TO TRANSFORM CONDITIONED TO RESIST DESTINED TO EMERGE FROM THE ABYSS THE SPELL WAS CAST SO MANY TIMES BEFORE WE HELD THE POWER IN OUR HANDS BUT WE WERE TAUGHT TO CRAWL INSTEAD OF SOAR I CAN’T FACE DYING AS THE DAMNED DARKNESS AND LIGHT TRUTH AND A LIE WRONG AND RIGHT IT IS OLDER THAN TIME NO NEED OR DESIRE FLYING HIGHER AND HIGHER I AM EVERYTHING EVERYTHING IS ME, WE’RE FREE
5.
ALL I KNOW WILL FADE ALL THAT ONCE WAS MINE EVERYTHING DECAYS ALL I GAVE TO TIME NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY FOREVER BEHIND AT FIRST, IT HURTS TO DIE TORTURED BY TIME NO ONE I LOOK UP TO NO ONE LEFT TO SHARE THIS PAIN TIME SHOULD HAVE ERASED YOU WILL IT EVER CHANGE LIFETIME SEARCHING FOR A SIGN LIGHTYEARS AWAY FROM MY MIND COUNTLESS AEONS LEFT BEHIND EVERYTHING PASSING ME BY

Hear Her 03:57
SHE ONCE KEPT HER SECRET HIDDEN POISONED BY HER INNER STRIFE BEHOLD THE WORDS SHE HAS WRITTEN AND REALIZE WE COULD HAVE SAVED HER LIFE HEAR HER VOICE AND LIVE AGAIN RISEN FROM THE DEAD FEEL HER VOICE, ITS ENERGY WILL SPREAD UNDERSTAND THE THINGS SHE SAID HEAR HER VOICE FIND THE KEY IN THIS CONFESSION HER SOUL STILL RESONATES WITHIN SEEK THE ANSWER IN EXPRESSION TRANSFORMATION WILL BEGIN

Living Light 04:43
Project your deepest fears Recognize the shadow's hold Accept and disappear Give up conscious thought control Fulfillment of totality It is watching as it must Emerging in reality We don't see but it sees us Seeds that shelter future pines Roots eluding hardened earth Stretching sunward with our lives Digging deeper toward rebirth

about

Flashback to 2017: Spirit Adrift dropped its 2nd LP ‘Curse Of Conception’ via 20 Buck Spin, a huge step forward following the debut, landing at #2 in Decibel Magazine’s best albums of the year and carving out a sound now patently its own. Lazily labelled Doom by some, the band is in fact the true representation of what modern Heavy Metal should be, a direct descendent of the widely-appealing arena-filling superstars of the ‘80s and ‘90s without a whiff of anachronistic cosplay fantasies.

Spirit Adrift’s third album ‘Divided By Darkness’ delivers on the promise first revealed on ‘Curse Of Conception’ and then advances far beyond it in every way achieving a timeless album for the ages. First single ‘Hear Her’ pummels with the concise urgency and unforgettable chorus of a vital radio hit while ‘Angel & Abyss’ has the classic progression that leads from reflective ballad to rapturous anthemic triumph. The continued evolution of Nathan Garrett as a top vocal talent in modern Heavy Metal shines through amidst the masterful musicianship and huge production value engineered by Sanford Parker.

Among the many stylistic divergences within rock and metal, Spirit Adrift’s ‘Divided By Darkness’ understands that there is no substitute for huge ambition, soul-bearing lyricism and most importantly the ability of a pristinely penned riff and impassioned chorus to alter hearts and minds. Astonishingly ‘Divided By Darkness’ is Spirit Adrift’s heaviest and most accessible album to date and will stand as the apex of Heavy Metal songcraft in 2019.
