"Spellbound" is one of the first songs that I worked on when getting the demos from Arjen. So it's a very experimental kind of track, you know, the melodies are like mysterious and stuff like that. The lyrics are also on that subject, kind of alluring someone into your mystery somehow.
We have "Passion", second track. It's basically about the passion for music, the emotion you get from music, from performing and all that stuff.
"Deceiver" is about having to cope and deal with the expectations that people have from you sometimes. Sometimes not being able to live up to that, to the expectations.
4. I'll Keep On Dreaming
"I'll Keep On Dreaming" is a very longing song, you know, just longing for someone who's not there anymore.
"Haunted" is about dealing with your inner daemons, you know, the things that you cling to from your past, the negative thoughts that follow you and you can't get rid of.
6. Wherever You Are
"Wherever You Are" is about finding your true calling, kind of your destiny in life and... yeah, that's pretty much it. (Laughs.)
7. Open Your Eyes
"Open Your Eyes" is a song that I wrote inspired by a story I read somewhere, about a woman whose son committed suicide. It was a very painful story, it was really hard to read how she slowly lost the connection with her son and she just felt how he was drifting away... finally losing him altogether. It's a very emotional story.
8. Embrace The Storm
"Embrace The Storm" is a about dealing with changes and accepting the changes around, in your life and just making the most out of them.
9. Breathing Again
"Breathing Again" is a kind of cheesy love song that I wrote for Alejandro. (Laughs.) That's pretty much it. (Laughs again.)
10. Out In The Real World
"Out In The Real World" is about someone kind of living in a shell and not being able to confront the real life and real life's responsibilities and happenings. You know, kind of being hidden inside your little crystal world.
"Nostalgia" is a song I wrote inspired by a play by Frederico Garcia Lorca "Dona Rosita La Soltera." It means "Dona Rosita, the Spinster" and it's about a woman who is engaged to this guy. He goes away on business overseas and he promises her that he'll return but he never does. And she spends years and years of her life waiting for him and just basically wastes her life away waiting. And that longing feeling is what the song is about.
"Calliopeia" is a song written to the muses. You know, kind of a search for inspiration and what you sacrifice looking for that inspiration... and that's it. (Laughs.)

I shoot people.
Sometimes, I also write about it.
