about

This is Nic Gyalson's first album.

It’s about growing up, about beginning and ending, about times when awareness breaks apart, about the change of perspective that makes you think you're losing your mind.

It's about loneliness, about feeling disconnected from the world around you; when it feels like you've grown a century older in two years. It's also about the anguish of time, and how much we can't fully understand it.

It's a story of anxiety, yet still amazing and thrilling, like space-time travel, or hallucinations.
ALLUVISION, an alluvion of visions.
Anything can happen when you're in that situation and you're overwhelmed by emotions; when anything that crosses your mind instantly materializes.
All-U-Vision, all you can imagine.

Track Name: Golden Goose
Well, I'm flying a plane with you
And you don't know where we are
Gimme the yoke, gimme the yoke

Then I'm rowing a boat with you
And you're acting like a star:
You're the stroke, you're the stroke

You know I hate when I'm unwinding on my way home
And you call me on the phone
So at least please listen to what I need to say
Or I'll leave you alone

Well, I'm waiting here for you
Even though I've got a flu
But you won't come, you won't come

So now, all those things you do
Keep me here, nervous and blue
Still at home, still at home

Beware I just can't stand to see you cash in on me
I won't be your golden goose
So don't think you are so above me
Or I'll cut you loose

My brain is working pretty fine and I am sure I got what it takes
to be what I want to become and I don't want to be stopped.
I got such great power that you could never imagine, so
I'll listen to you but then I'll find my way to the top.
Track Name: Broken Awareness
Well, all the things you see in this room right now
Were brought by the fools who ride the dawn
Yes, all the things you see can tell you how
You imagined all the pictures you have drawn

They make me feel
That this is real
They give me a sleeping pill
Steal my meal
Make a hole in my head with a drill

Now, watch a movie and try to dive into the plot
Then tell me what is clear and what is not
Yeah, watch it now and try to realize
That you died when the main character got shot

They make me feel
That this is real
They give me a sleeping pill
Steal my meal
Make a hole in my head with a drill
Track Name: Gentian
I'm on a boat that sails away
Into the wind we leave the bay
No more lonely afternoons
I'm going where the flower blooms
To tell you
I love you

I can't believe what happened to me
And I'm so glad of what I see:
Such beauty in front of my eyes
She's a gentian in the sunrise
And she's here
Just for me

chorus
Won't bring my soul in the dark,I know she won't
Bring my soul in the dark, she's too good, to make me blue
We'll walk together in the night, I know we will
Walk together in the night, just like we did when we first met

And then we'll see the falling stars
And all the wounds will turn to scars
I'll be the happiest man around
I'll be leaving ground In the shine
Of your eyes

chorus
Track Name: When You're On Your Own
There is a huge wall between need and desire
When your bag is empty and your mouth gets drier
Now you know you can walk alone
When you're on your own

Far away beyond the noise of the town
There's a picture of dreams painted green and brown
That's the place where you can give and share
But you're never there

chorus:
She can give you love, she can give you heat
She's the one you looked for in the empty street
She's the one that keeps you on the phone When you're on your own

When...When...When...
I do listen to you...
Now you can drive across the lights of the night
Trying to get somewhere out of sight
But you know you're naked like a bone
When you're on your own

chorus

Friends around you waking up
They go their way and never stop
And you feel like you've never grown
When you're on your own
Yeah, you feel like you've never grown
When you're on your own
Track Name: Affordable
They came to town: normality
They came to town: formality

They came back home from far away
They came back home, like yesterday

We're used to being used to it
Let's be used to it

They beat their kids because they cry
They beat their wives, they don't know why

We're used to being used to it
Let's be used to it

It's been a hard day, honey
Time to sleep

They go to work so far away
They go to work, like yesterday
Tomorrow, today

Tomorrow, today
It'll be a hard day honey
It's 5, it's 6, it's 7, it's 8
Like yesterday
Tomorrow, today
Track Name: A Dose To Doze
chorus
Honey you got love
Gimme gimme... yeah
A dose to doze
Honey you got love
Gimme gimme... yeah
A dose to doze
A dose to doze

You know that falling down
Is easier than falling asleep
Night is time not to spare
I live here in this town
Where I can hear people weep
All the time, I swear

chorus

The train is coming today
Dreams are flying around
Night is time not to spare
Now it thrills me, oh yeah
I'm waiting for that sound...
Every time, I swear

chorus

Honey you got, honey you got, honey you got love
Honey you got, honey you got love

chorus
Track Name: Vacuum?

Track Name: Amber & Diamonds
She's waiting, everyday
She's staring at tomorrow's prey
She's wearing palm trees
There is a fire floating in the breeze

She's almost ready, are you?
She's almost ready, like you

Amber and diamonds in her chain
A guard is holding it to ease her pain
Now he's wondering whether she
Could love him if they were free

He's almost ready, are you?
He's almost ready, like you
Run, run, run, run....

Still waiting, everyday
She's staring at tomorrow's prey
He's growing palm trees
There is a fire floating in the breeze

She's almost ready, are you?
She's almost ready, like you
Track Name: Someone Stole My Life
Windows in the dark
Water in my shoes
I only hear a bark
In the nighttime blues

Misfit as I find
What people are looking for
A peaceful state of mind
Behind a locked door

Someone stole my life

Labels I don't need
For my restless mood
It's very good indeed
I can't see why I should
Sleep

Someone stole my life

Finally...

Someone stole my life
Track Name: Love Giver
I'm on a flowering lawn, wasting sunlight
'cause I still don't know what I wanna do
I've been wandering alone, and I've experienced the fight
But I needed to grow to find something new
To find something new

chorus:
My knees are bending
My lungs are on fire
And I ain't pretending
I guess I'll always be a love giver, I'll never be a liar

Well now I'm talking to a cat that makes me see
How peaceful this place is in the shining sun
And I take off my hat, looking up...
To be high enough to embrace all the clouds I can
The clouds I can

chorus twice
Track Name: I Feel I'm Home
And I'm still waiting for you
The time to cry is through
But I can't hide how I miss
The day before yesterday
Now all I wanna do
Is give you one more kiss

I feel I'm home
I feel I'm home
Oh girl I feel...
I feel I'm home

I wanna see you and your dreaming face
I wanna carry you into endless space
Now, are coming back to me tonight?
My brain is burning in this dim light
I wanna hold you tight

I feel I'm home
I feel I'm home
With you I feel...
I feel I'm home
Track Name: Eyelid Pain
I've been left alone
It's so hard to take
And I laze all day
But every time I say:
Go on, I'm awake

I got a minute now
Before leaving
And I feel like screaming
How? Am I awake?

But you won't go
No you won't go

Let me tell you baby
Leaves are turning red
It is time to shed...
The day and hit the hay

You know I won't go
You know I won't go

I've been left alone
To face my mistake
And I work all day
But every time I say:
Go on, I'm awake

But you won't go
No you won't go

I wonder where they've gone
Unfriendly friends, gone
Track Name: Low Definition
512 bits I've lost: low definition
Tell me whether I must stop this vision
Compulsive need to follow wires
Passively, when I look in your eyes
When I look in your eyes

A new rising sun: aneurysm
Brand new rhythm gone wild in wisdom
Paint paint me blue screens to change again
What surrounds me

Then skip my life and see the world go on
Don't you miss something? [Tell me, tell me]
Don't you miss something? [Tell me, tell me]

512 bytes I've lost: low definition

Don't you miss something? [Tell me, tell me]
Don't you miss low definition? [Tell me, tell me]
