Art for upcoming album Outside the Perimeter by The Seeds of Time
A forthcoming studio album ‘Outside the Perimeter‘ is currently being written and recorded for release in late 2021 or early 2022. However we are going to be releasing new songs from the album as they become ready. They will be available online on our website and Bandcamp page.

‘Outside the Perimeter‘ will be a double album of approximately 24 new tracks. Our new project aims to be a mixed fusion of styles to include Blues, Folk, Rock, Progressive Modern Classical, Ambient and Electronica. The album will span from retro influences and classical music to futuristic soundscapes, and thus will be a musical journey from start to finish.

We will keep you posted while we work on new songs and share them online.

The project will culminate in the release of ‘Outside the Perimeter‘ as a gatefold double album on 2 CDs.

Lyrics

I seek a different kind of space outside the perimeter
and just right where imperfections can be seen as beautiful.
But dead or alive, we make little or no difference.
it's all and forever always the same.
Just like the specks of dust that blow away with the wind,
That maybe is just the simple beauty and the thrill of it all.
If one day there comes a time to seek the help that we all need,
then it will be fine and I will believe once again and then I will be free...
to be outside the perimeter.
And do we choose the road ahead?
Or is it simply chosen for us? And chosen for me too? Nobody knows.
But all absolution is not like a ticket to ride.
it isn't going to run out now or ever in time.
but rules are rules to obey or ignore at our peril...
And in our lives, is it love? Or just the memories of that love?
There is here and then there is not here
and that's just the nature and the great science of it all...
of being outside the perimeter!

Lyrics

Walking towards the sunset
The mountains fade away
Way ahead in the distance
Land and sky above blend in together
Melting into a bleeding sky
a bleeding sky

Your feet, soil, a land still warm
Baked by beams of the blazing sun
And the whistling winds blow sand
Straight across the zig zag path
the zig zag path
that zig zag path

On your tongue a taste of burning
Your eyes wettened by the crudeness of it all
But there's no turning back
As beyond lies the immensity
Of your desert dream freedom
your dream freedom
dream freedom
your dream freedom

And you gasp and gasp again
As your tired feet drag on into the dust
But your head is light
And your soul flies up above
Drifting around in the warm air
It sees nothing but the beauty
Yes nothing but the beauty
Just before the end
Just before the end
Just before the end...

Beyond the sunset
Well beyond the sunset...
