about

The Phantom Dream's original lead guitarist, Jonny Kistler, wrote one last progressive masterpiece before departing the band over a year ago, and, this summer, he funded the new lineup to record it for him in La Crosse's very own Groundbreaking Sound Studios. Behold! Eleven minutes of glorious rock 'n' roll as you've never heard it before!

lyrics

Son of lightning and born to be
Father of fire, as you can see
Hold it in from first dawn’s light
Let it out throughout the night

Valleys overcasting and shadows protracting
Faces worn and torn, red fallout reacting
A sonic orange sunset, the firestorm eye
Blazing horizon, a neon-coated sky
Take us through the door, to where we've been before
My fragile, oh beauty, your colors move through me

They call him fire, they call him fire
And he won't let me go until I show him what we know
They call him rage, they call him anger
And he whispers in my ear so loud the things he loves to hear
I call him fear, I call him weak
I call him all things that I once was, I was

Because of you, I can be myself
Because of you, I won't need his help
Because of you, you've shown me I can live again
Because of you, and we can make it so this never ends

There's a thing at first sight of old I am told
An electric concerto on my spinal cord
Lackluster sight gleams to the bottom
Of my bitter-ended words and trust me I've got 'em
And plenty more where they came from
Check the triple echoes, aflame as the sun
To feel your fingertips on my twisted bones
So I can hear you say hello by the time I get home

It’s all aflame, nowhere to be found
It’s hard to think, we're paradise bound
We're here forever and this is how
We beat our own world, so sing it loud
We climbed so hard, we never thought it real
So when I look at you I really do feel, I feel

Because of you, I can be myself
Because of you, I won't need his help
Because of you, you've shown me I can live again
Because of you, and we can make it so this never ends

Shadow of who I am, shatter this façade
'Cause if one day you wake up to find that I was never real
I hope you see that magic memory of the kiss I chose to steal
To seal our fates and seal our hands in the face that looks at you
In those mirrors in your eyes that shine the truth that got us through

And I'll walk through fields of restless strangers
Just to meet your eye
And I'll draw the corners of the earth
To be our home
And I'll wield a sharper blade forged in kindness
To make you proud of me

Because of you, I can love who I am
Because of you, I won't have to pretend
Because of you, my world has stopped and started again
Because of you, we can make it so this never ends
Because of you
