Raven’s Jig – Sea of Dreams

After our first collaboration with Seventh Element on Fallout Equestrian, we agreed to work on a vocal song which would mix strong ambient tunes with impactful lyrics. “Sea Of Dreams”, based on an instrumental track originally called “Sea Of Darkness”, is the plea of a lost soul trapped on a dystopian, futuristic and foreign planet, its dreams of a better life, and its eventual rise and battle to claim said life.

Lyrics:

Here I am
In living garbage hell
I look at the sky and see no stars above
‘Cause they stop shining whenever they’re dead
And God knows there’s many of them out there
Having burnt in the thin air
In the invisible monster’s lair
Turning them invisible out there
Near living garbage hell

I am a child of my people
Trapped in that tiny metropole
Where there are no windows to see where life lies
Piles of brown and grayish white
Under the artificial light
Everything here is nothing but fakes and lies

No way to feel any better
I don’t feel so free either
Garbage hell goes on forever
Same day, same week, same month, same year

But everyday from the bottom of the mine
I see it clearly
The world that may be found on the other side
Is somewhere there inside me
My silly sea of dreams
Unlikely sea of dreams
But oh so precious sea of dreams

I could fly away
Far away from mission
I would fly away
I could get my way
Some kind of permission
I’d give myself

Our lives in the hands of those kings in their big castles
Are shivering, reduced to dirt, surrounded by lords and vassals
If I could believe in old stories I sure would trust them
To take me out, somewhere I would get to show who I really am
Our lives in the hands of those kings in their big castles
Are shivering, reduced to dirt, surrounded by lords and vassals
If I could believe in old stories I sure would trust them
To take me out, somewhere I would get to show who I really am

This whole thing can’t be right
I tried to take it away from my mind and my sight
But I just can’t make it disappear like that
I’ll have to try another way
Try and act instead of flying over it in my dreams
Fight and change my world
That’s what all the wise say
Elders, and some books, and some songs
When trapped in a bad situation
Something must be done

One step on, the fight roaring around
Not one care if it goes good or bad
Two steps on, I can’t walk anymore
I dash on ready for my own war
Got no choice, I feel it in my bones
Ten steps on across the danger zone
Straight ahead, no right to look behind
It’s a brand new life I’m off to find
Let it all explode and toll the bell
It’s the end of living garbage hell
