about

Botany Bay

What once began as melancholic and deep 80's style pop/wave music gradually made the journey along the coordinates of trip hop, post rock and shoegaze... and has now reached a place where categoriztations are well-nigh impossible.

Track Name: Winter Wolfpack Serenade
winter

fingerprints on the window pane
like someone’s been here just yesterday
an empty home, an empty street
all boarded up and no one to meet

the war is over
the war is over
the war is won

and whispers carried by the wind
of lovers’ oaths and broken dreams
and cherished letters like leaves blown from trees
once meant the world, now soaring free

the race is over
he race is over
the race is run

the world is over
the world is over
the world is gone

the world is over
the world is over
the world goes on



wolfpack

brother
running to the water

sister
leading the way

the wolfpack travels
feeling the sunlight

the wolfpack travels
feeling the world

father
strong as the mountain

mother
bright as the day

the wolfpack travels
everything’s holy

the wolfpack travels
we shall be free

never take it away from me

the wolfpack travels
everything’s holy

the wolfpack travels
we shall be free



serenade

mountain top

hear the nightbirds calling
wide awake

a new day dawning
listen to the serenade
listen to the serenade

that’s been playing all this time

age of reason

wish for an angel

manufacture

your very own hell

waiting for the hurricane
waiting for the hurricane

that’s been coming all this time

mountain top

everything is different
new life
everything is silent

listening to the serenade
listening to the serenade
that’s been playing all this time
Track Name: June
June

Lime tree blossom
Autumn son
Coming home
Go ahead and run
Run into her open arms
Running to her love
Run into her open arms again

Blooming in sunlight
Blooming unworried
Blooming in love
In your mother's arms again

Run to love
Run to love
To love
To love
Track Name: Imago

Track Name: Play
Play

Play me
Feel me
Stroke me
Breathe on me

See you
Want you
Take you
Leaving you mute

Take this silence away and play
Take this silence away and play
Oh take this silence away

Bought and sold
Desired and owned
Jealously loaned
Turning to stone

Take this silence away and play
Take this silence away and play
Oh take this silence away

Take this silence away and play
Take this silence away and play
Oh take this silence away
Track Name: Sun

Oceans in the sky

Darkness mirror light

This hope
This freedom

This peace
This freedom

Root
Breeze
Fire promise hide

Wind
Canyon
Lightning through the night

This hope
This freedom

This peace
This freedom

Wind
Canyon
Lightning through the night
