A self-reflective invocation of varying musical styles, featuring a voice that ranges from the soft and feminine, to stark and manic. Sometimes warm and gentle, at others, bitter and cold, this album covers the range of human emotions and is a study of contrasts.
Noelle says, "When I was putting this album together, I had material written from over a period of several years, but I saw a pattern emerging and it came together quite nicely to tell a story.
In its very basic form, it''s a story of the search for identity and meaning through the journey of life, seen through the eyes of the main character. It''s written in a way that I think we can all identify with it. Not only due to the subject matter, which covers such things as falling in love, but also because music itself is so universal."
in the morning
and i have known the fear
that strikes you deeply in the night
that causes anger
there is no turning away from it
if i could face that mirror
reflecting everything around me
can i reach that place where i will find
what i am seeking?
one day i had a dream
there was an embrace from the skies and i could fly with wings
i''m still remembering the scene
and deeper understanding
blinded (the wedding song)
so let us take the wheat from chaff
blend it to a hearty bread
warmed in oven that is love
let our nourishment not end
if you hunger, i''ll provide
if you weep, i''ll comfort you
let our love now multiply
into little blessings new
go back into your Self and see
your lifeblood and your fantasy
the error made yet no regret
no mark on you and yet you wept
the joy has gone just like today
tomorrow looming like a grave
my body dying by degrees
your body yearning to fill me
you who cherish so your reflection
your own muscle''s flexion
your fallen hair''s refraction in the light
might makes right
and your two left feet in your mouth make One Big Wrong
but not for me
at least, not for long
the tightness within
i wandered alone and confused in darkness without
the tightness within me tighter
my cries yet a shout
the bleating of babes yet unborn
the mourning of life
the tightness within me growing yet tighter, then still
