"I Am What I Knew" From Dark Came Light...Be Who YOU Are. The idea of "Lumen" evolved from this fact.

Biography

"From the darkest days of my life comes a ray of light."
This illumunation inspires a design for life. The design is to combine all of my efforts and re-discover something I already know. AWATANU. "I Am What I Knew" IS... ambition, dedication and belief. Never give up consideration to fulfill the dream of a lifetime...
The "Lumen" name came from a song I wrote many years ago about a very special someone and how he made me feel inside..."He calls me Lumen. It's the light in the sky that shines every day. He calls me Lumen. It's the light in the night where the moonlight lives. And when he looks at me...all I really see...Is the Lumen that lives inside of me"
The influnces that drive this entity are endless and everything we hear becomes an influence in its own right....

Lyrics

Angel Of Mercy

Written By: Lumen

Angel of Mercy

Why you stand by me, when I need you
When I'm surrounded by so few
Why you claim to be my savior
When I curse you like a fool

Why you love me, when I'm evil
Carelessly lashing out to you
Leaves me puzzled, with confusion
Like nothing else I ever knew

But Baby, all I know,
I've got nowhere left to go
But Baby can't you see
I just can't pretend to need you
Why do you want to be
Why do you want to be
Why do you want to be
My Angel of Mercy

Why you give me space to lose myself
In the memories of my past
Why you listen to me cry my pain
In the echoes of the night

Why you smile at every word I say
With a love that burns inside
Why you look at me that funny way
When you laugh and make me smile

Oh Baby, all I know,
I've got nowhere else to go
Oh but Baby can't you see
I just can't pretend to need you
Why do you want to be
Why do you want to be
Why do you want to be
My Angel of Mercy

Shining Star

Written By: Lumen

Shining Star

The weight of this silence
That lingers everywhere
What once felt like forever
Right now just isn't there

The battle with words
That cuts like a knife
And this painful ache consumes me
Like I've never felt in my life

If we remembered our first kiss
The way your eyes bathed in mine
The way your touch once made me feel
Made our love feel so real
If we remembered our first stare
And how we both wanted to dare
To take the chance and build a dream
On a midnight shining stream

Oo oo oo... my shining star
Oo oo oo... I've searched so far
To finally see you in the dark
To finally reach you where you are

Have You Met Your Soul

Written By: Lumen

Have You Met Your Soul

Have You Met Your Soul
Have you lived the devil yet
Has he filled your heart with pain
Left your life filled with regrets

Have you hurt your Soul
Strayed away from the one who knows
Have you festered suicide
Have you turned into your foe

Lonely the one who stares in the night
Thinkin' of things that never turned right
Believin' is seeing that's what they said
Feel Love within and not from your head
Lonely the one who stares in the night
Thinkin' of things that never turned right
Forget what you lost let the sun shine again
Break down the walls and Love from within

Have you heard your Soul
Have you gotten the message now
Have you tried to comprehend
Has it come through clear and loud

Have you felt your Soul
Have you seen the light in you
Have you answered all the questions
Do you now know all the truth

Lonely the one who stares in the night
Thinkin' of things that never turned right
Believin' is seeing that's what they said
Feel Love within and not from your head
Lonely the one who stares in the night
Thinkin' of things that never turned right
Forget what you lost let the sun shine again
Break down the walls and Love from within
