Louis A beautiful display of skill. If I was pushed to come up with a criticism (and you'd have to push me), it would be that we don't get enough of those lovely vocals. Favorite track: The Knife that Cuts a Tear.

Ed Buckley This is really very good. Still looping her cello , this feels more classically oriented than her first; for some reason. The pieces are generally shorter, with a less ambient atmosphere . I'm curious to see where she goes from here.

Track Name: The Knife that Cuts a Tear
The Knife that Cuts a Tear

VERSE 1; Walking through uncertain times,
Of promised lands that make divides
No rush to open eyes,
And see the world through greater minds

IS THIS FREEDOM?

VERSE 2; Mirrors help conformity
Run circles past reality
Mindless is the rising seas
Our sight disease, pure ecstasy.

GROWING WISER,
ARE WE GROWING WISER?

VERSE 3; Anxious is to those a food
Where justice fails a million truths
Powers hold is like a rope
A noose around the others throat

SWEET SURRENDER,
TIME TO GIVE UP ALL THE GAMES
AND BE FREE.

VERSE 4; Nature waits in open view
With wounds made ripe from shortened sight
When will all the slumbered wake
And stop the slaughter and the rape.

CHORUS; LIFE IS HERE NOW!!
FEET PLACED FIRMLY ON THE GROUND
SWEET SURRENDER
TO THE TRUTH THAT NEVER YIELDS
GROWING WISER
LIKE THE KNIFE THAT CUTS A TEAR
THIS IS FREEDOM
LIVING WITHOUT FEAR!!
