timurb A gem and a prayer. Very intense and yet very atmospheric track. A journey through time, mind and emotion — that's description of Krister Linder's music, writing and performance. Favorite track: Broken Horses.

Schuyler Brundage Very rarely does a song come across that absolutely floors me. This happened to me with the title track. The song blends elements of calm and intensity together so well. It's quite moving and I highly recommend it. In my opinion, a masterpiece. Favorite track: The Great Surrender.

woyciq Gone - touches the bottom of my heart. I can listen this song over and over again. It's so emotional, hypnotic, great for meditation as well. Kristen your voice expression in this song is amazing! Everything here is in right place. This is one of my best songs ever :) Favorite track: Gone.

Gone 06:13
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 capitals 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 your great unknown Surrender to the fate Bestowed upon my soul Like shackles of gold And everywhere I turn The world anticipates When I'm gone
Roll the dice I'm going in to claim my name The race is on Fire away Labyrinth of sliding doors The choice is mine Where I go becomes who I am I am my father's eyes I am my mother's heart I am my brother's hands And the chance Of soft, safe ground Anything I become Will affect everyone Everything I have done Will remain under the sun Dreams come undone like paper Under city lights we flock to play Broken horses Oh let's play like broken horses Here's my shot Fail me not I place my bets Don't hesitate No time to waste Cover me, my hands are stiff and trembling cold Cover me this once for I have lost control Cover me for I'm about to stake my soul It's in the woods It's in the breeze It's heading fast over hills and seas It's in the branches and all the leaves It's under ground and above the trees It's in the air upon my skin Beneath the crust and the cage I'm in It's in the streets It's all there is And all around And from afar I see the lights of shooting stars Oh if you were only among them I would let you go see our lives from up above And way down I'd still be here playing Broken horses Oh I'd be playing broken horses
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 chose 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 Spiralling 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 chose 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
