WWW (Whole Wide World)
The song WWW (Whole Wide World) is a confession of a person who lives on social networks, but through the "bubble of happiness" he sees the dirt, imperfection and hypocrisy of society. "Every fiend is a saint, and they teach us how to pray… In the whole wide world!" This composition is not about depression, but about the "mirror" that the author puts on human nature to expose all his vices unveiled and openly. And also to draw attention to the long-forgotten feelings and values ​​in our time. more

Up In Flames
Song from our latest album UP IN FLAMES Well this desert sun's a demon Guns seem so out of place Now the enemy is obvious to me Blistering my face! It's no time to whine No weakness will do No lamentations Will get me through I came in loud over the border Sure was a show I was high as a kite But flying just too damn low Nose dived in the sand Jumped out of the plane A million dollars Up in flames A million dollars of something up back up in flames A million dollars, life-changing stash down the drain Nose dived in the sand Jumped out of the plane A million dollars Up in flames A million dollars of something up back up in flames A million dollars, life-changing stash down the drain Well is that a mirage or is the end of this desert Finally in sight? I talk to myself and, man, I argue About how I got in this plight Bought into business A small country store Too far off the main track Not there anymore A million dollars of something up back up in flames A million dollars, life-changing stash down the drain Bought myself into business A small country store Too far off the main track Not there anymore A million dollars of something up back up in flames A million dollars, life-changing stash down the drain A million dollars of something up back up in flames A million dollars, life-changing stash down the drain Copyright Michael Davies and Paul Ivor Jones 23 March 2021more

When We're Young
The twelfth and final track of my third album, 'White Raven', out now! Somewhere between twilight and midnight, dreams and nightmares, the future and the past, the light and the dark. Co-written with my friend, Ivan, in the mid-00's. I wanted to end the album with a big, dramatic number in the style of the 80's Classical Rock albums (with the London Symphony Orchestra playing well-known rock songs) but with a vocal over the top, and lashings of harmonies. I hope you enjoy it.more
