about

In 2009 I sold my Stockholm apartment to be able to cross the Atlantic and subject myself to a whole new existence - in a land and city where I had no past merits or advantage whatsoever. Inspired, clueless and armed only with the foolish trust of a poet I rented an apartment overlooking Lower East Side Manhattan / New York. I was consumed and driven by an absurd dream: To let go of everything, begin from nothing, fully give in to the mystery and sometime return home with an album. And today I'm excited and grateful to be able to share ACROSS THE NEVER with all of You. Now, my music may not be for everyone, but this is something I have come to fully accept and embrace over the years. And so my wish is not to convince or convert anyone into a fan or buyer. But I do pray that the spirit of my songs get to travel far and wide to reach each and every single being that could possibly appreciate it. I want it to be heard by anyone that would get some soothing or solace from it, wherever they may be, within or beyond our world. So if you think you know of someone who might enjoy and connect with my music, please don't hesitate to share it with them. Let it travel among your beloveds, flow to your people and go wherever it's meant to be.

Thank You so much for your patience and loving support over the years. With endless Love
K

Track Name: Awake & Dissolve
ARISE IN THE OPEN
AWAKEN AND DISSOLVE
RE:ALIGN WITH THE LIGHTNING
AT LAST EMPIRES FALL
STAND LIKE A MOUNTAIN
AND CHOOSE YOUR STAR
OUR WORLD COMING UNDONE
BUT NO MATTER HOW FAR
WE ARE INSEPARABLE
WE ARE INSEPARABLE

AWAKENED AND SHAKEN
AND DRAGGED OUT OF OUR DEN
TO RESTORE WHAT IS BROKEN
AND RADIATE AGAIN
TIL THE STARS HAVE TURNED
TO BLACKENED HOLES
SWALLOWING ALL TIME WHOLE
WE ARE INSEPARABLE
WE ARE INSEPARABLE
Track Name: Other Skies
INTO YOUR LABYRINTH
SPIDER SCANNING ME
CAMERA FOLLOW US
SPYING DRONES FLY
ANONYMOUS STYLE
I COME FROM OTHER SKIES
ACROSS THE NEVER
I FEEL ANOTHER SKY
BREATHING ELSEWHERE
I GO TO OTHER SKIES
BUT I’LL BREAK THE CHAIN
OR EVERYTHING IS LOST
AND I’LL MAKE IT HOME
AT ANY COST

INTO YOUR LABYRINTH
LUCID CITY DREAMS
COMPUTER WATCHING ME
I’M ON RADAR
MONITOR
I COME FROM OTHER SKIES
BEYOND THE NEVER
I FEEL ANOTHER SKY
PULLING ELSEWHERE
I GO TO OTHER SKIES
I’M READY
Track Name: Night Eye
FROM CLOSE AND EXACT ATTENTION
I HAVE ARRIVED AT CONCLUSIONS
CURRENTLY DOING MY HEAD IN
ALL INDICATING WE’RE DREAMING

AND WHEN GRAVITY FAILS US
WE’RE BREATHING SLOW
RISING ABOVE FROM DOWN BELOW
LEAVING ALL UNDERNEATH US
YOUR HAND IN MINE
INTO THE NIGHT EYE

TWILIGHT TURN INTO DAWN
CRUISING
CHASING HORIZONS
WE MADE IT
AND WHEN GRAVITY FAILS US
WE’RE BREATHING SLOW
RISING ABOVE FROM DOWN BELOW
LEAVING ALL BENEATH US
YOUR HAND IN MINE
INTO THE NIGHT EYE

AND WHEN GRAVITY CLAIMS US
STILL BREATHING SLOW
SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO GO BELOW
BUT UNTIL I FLATLINE
YOUR HAND IN MINE
INTO THE NIGHT EYE
Track Name: You Were Always
STEEL CLOUDS MAY VERY WELL
OBSCURE THE HEAVENS
THEY’RE STILL JUST A TINY CRUST
HIDING FOREVERS
WHATEVER REMEMBER

YOU WERE ALWAYS
PERFECTLY
DIVINE

TO AVOID THE UNFORESEEN
WE STALL
WE’RE STALLING
BUT IN TRUTH
WE’RE ONLY STEPS AWAY
WE LIE, WE HIDE
THEN FALL TO FLY
YOU WERE ALWAYS
PERFECTLY
DIVINE

YOU WERE ALWAYS
HERE
Track Name: Gone
WHEN WE’RE GONE
THE SUN REMAINS THE SAME
WHEN WE’RE GONE
THE EARTH ROTATES THE SAME
YOU’RE A FIREFLY
APPROACHING LIGHT OF DAY
YOU’RE A SUPERSTAR
BURNING TO FADE AWAY

UNCERTAIN ROADS AHEAD
BUT STILL THERE’S NO RETURN
NO SOLACE IN THE PAST
A LIFETIME TO UNLEARN

IF ALL I SOUGHT WAS DREAMS
JUST COVERING MY TRACKS
OBVIOUSLY OBLIVIOUS
THROUGH HEAVENLY HELLS AND BACK

I FACE THE GREAT UNKNOWN
AS STRANGE AS IT MAY SEEM
THE CITY SPOKE TO ME
OF CAPITOLS OF DREAMS
AND LABYRINTHs OF GLASS
IN GRIDS OF MILLION MIRRORS
ENTIRE UNIVERSES
WITHIN US

IN YOUR FIRE
I PURIFY MY SOUL
KEEP ME CLOSE
AND NEVER LET ME GO

I FACE THE GREAT UNKNOWN
SURRENDER TO THE FATE
BESTOWED UPON MY SOUL
LIKE SHACKLES OF GOLD

AND EVERY WHERE I TURN
THE WORLD ANTICIPATES
WHEN I’M GONE
Track Name: The Great Surrender
SOURCE OF ALL I AM
AND ALL THAT IS
I TURN TO YOU
AND KNOW THAT YOU HEAR ME
AS I COME FROM YOU
AND YOU DWELL IN ME TOO
EVERY BREATH AND BEAT
I GOT FROM YOU
I’M YOU MANIFEST
THROUGH AND THROUGH
SO HEAR ME NOW
I’M READY TO
SURRENDER SOMEHOW

LUCIFER CALLING
THE MOTHER AND SON
I’M TIRED OF BEING ANGRY
AND TOO WEARY TO RUN
MADLY IRONIC
THAT ONLY YOUR LOVE
WAS GIVING ME SPACE
TO CHOOSE
TO REBEL AT ALL
FORGIVE ME

CENTURIES I’VE REHEARSED WHAT TO SAY
BUT THINGS COOL DOWN ALONG THE WAY
OH THE LENGTH WE GO
JUST TO KEEP A GRUDGE
THOUGH IT POISONS OUR SOUL
THERE WERE TIMES I THOUGHT I WAS WINNING
WHEN I HAD THEM ALL SPINNING
SPIRALING DOWN
OH SO SIMPLE THOUGH

LUCIFER CALLING
THE FATHER AND SON
I’M TIRED OF BEING ANGRY
AND I LONG TO COME HOME
CRAZY IRONIC
THAT ONLY YOUR LOVE
WAS GIVING ME SPACE
TO CHOOSE
TO REBEL AT ALL

SAY HOW YOU WANT IT
YOU’RE ALL THAT I GOT
KNOWING I’M FREE
TO SUFFER OR NOT
FORGIVE ME
Track Name: Pure Like Fire
YOU SHAKE MY LIFE ENTIRELY
YOU TURN MY HIDING INSIDE OUT
LIGHT UP THE DARK
FROM WITHIN ME
AND MAKE YOUR BED
INSIDE MY HEART
WHAT IF I SIMPLIFY
ALL AND EVERYTHING
AND BEGIN
FROM TONIGHT AND FOREVER
PURE LIKE FIRE

YOU COME IN WAVES AND TREMBLINGS
IN WATERFALLS AND VOLCANOES
I COME TO PEACE WITH EVERYTHING
BY GRACE OF YOUR UNFOLDING ROSE
WHAT IF WE SIMPLY LEAVE
ALL AND EVERYTHING
AND BEGIN
FROM TONIGHT AND FOREVER
PURE LIKE FIRE

I BEGIN FROM TONIGHT AND FOREVER
PURE
PURE LIKE FIRE
CLEAR LIKE STARS AND PURE LIKE FIRE
Track Name: Alchemy
THE BEAUTY
OF WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
IS LONG GONE
FOR THE HESITANT

IF I LOVE LIKE FIRE BURNS
AND I FALL LIKE AUTUMN LEAVES
EVEN CRY LIKE WATER FALLS
WILL I RISE LIKE VAPOR

THE BEAUTY
BEYOND ME
I SURRENDER
I’M READY

IF I LOVE LIKE FIRE BURNS
AND I FALL LIKE AUTUMN LEAVES
EVEN CRY LIKE WATER FALLS
I WILL RISE LIKE VAPOR

AND BEYOND THE VEIL
MAYBE YOU WOULD RECOGNIZE ME

IF I LOVE LIKE FIRE BURNS
AND I FALL LIKE AUTUMN LEAVES
EVEN CRY LIKE WATER FALLS
I WILL RISE LIKE VAPOR

MAYBE YOU WOULD RECOGNIZE ME
Track Name: Cowboys & Snowdens
WHOSE GLASS CATHEDRAL
WHOSE KEY TO KINGDOMS
WHO TO BE OWNED OR ONES OWN
WHO be safe
WHO BE DRONED and gone
WHOSE FUTURE FREEDOM
WHOSE FUTURE UNDONE
WHO RAISE HIS HEAD WHEN THEY BOW
WHO’S THE LONELIEST MAN IN TOWN

BRING ME A MORNING
BREATHE ME YOUR FEARLESS
GOLD
FLOOD THE HORIZON
LET THE DAY UNFOLD
RELEASE YOUR PRISONERS
ONCE FOR ALL

whose secret magnet
whose prison planet
who speak in reptile tongue
who’s a slave
who’s a bloodline strong

BRING ME A MORNING
BREATHE ME YOUR DEATHLESS
GOLD
FLOOD THE HORIZON
LET THE DAY UNFOLD
RELEASE YOUR PRISONERS
ONCE FOR ALL
Track Name: Never Said Alien
NO MORE LIGHTS ON THE ROAD
STAY AGLOW
YOU KNOW
DON’T EVER LET THE COLD
GET A HOLD OF YOUR SOUL
YOU KNOW

THE CAT IS OUT
BUT THE WORLD IS OURS
WE NEVER SAID
ALIEN

STAY AWAKE MY LOVE
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
YOU KNOW

THE CAT IS OUT
BUT THE WORLD IS OURS
WE NEVER SAID
ALIEN
ALIEN
Track Name: Conquer
I FOUND YOU
SNOW WAS IN THE AIR
YOU REMIND ME
OF STORM LIKE LIONS IN THE AIR
OF ALL WONDERS
INSIDE ALL
THE GOLD IS LOVE WITHIN
A TINY ROSE
A DIAMOND RING
A MONSOON
AND A FIRE
CAN MY HEART DENY THIS
LOVE WITHIN
THE KIND OF LOVE WE CONQUER IN
A MONSOON

WE FADE OUT
HOME IS SAFE
AN ISLE IN THE I
SOON THE LIONS WILL SING AT SUNDOWN
TO BREAKOUT
TAKES A TInY LITTLE LAMB
LIKE A RIOT
CONSUMING
DEVOURING ALL WE’VE BEEN
THE KIND OF LOVE WE CONJURE IN
A MONSOON
I’M A FIRE
SUN MOUNTAIN
HERE I AM
LOVE WITHIN
SUMMER LIGHTS WILL TURN AROUND
A MONSOON

(LOVE CONQUERS ANYTHING)
Track Name: Across the Never
THE TINIEST ATOM IN SUPER SUNS
ORIGINAL
PRIMORDIAL
THE TINIEST ATOM INSIDE OUR HEARTS
IDENTICAL
CELESTIAL

FROM BEFORE WE’RE BORN
WE WERE SWORN TO THE SOURCE
AND THE UNDIVIDED
TO EXTEND THE TRUTH
AND DESCEND INTO FORM
BRINGING LOVE INTO IT

REFLECTED AND MUTATED
QUANTUMFOLD
WE’RE DWELLING IN OUR TENDER SKIN
THE LIGHT OF THE UNIFIED IN OUR EYES
WILL TESTIFY IN DEAD OF NIGHT

WITH MY FINAL CALL
I MAKE A STAND
TAKE THE VOW
AS IF ON A MOUNTAIN
TO RENOUNCE IT ALL
HANDING OVER MY SELF
TO YOUR HOLY FOUNTAIN
