Alex Deep began his musical path contributing as a DJ to Venezuela's raves and discothèques. At the age of 18 he moved to Boston in pursuit of his studies in economics and business. While there, He formed a promotion group through which he networked with the club owners that soon opened the doors for him to play in Boston and NY.

After one of his best friend died in a motorcycle accident Alex faced the fragility of life and quickly realized that life is too short to not do what we love. The satisfaction of expressing emotions, thoughts and dreams gave him the strength to fight against the resistance he faced from family and friends. This, coupled with his dissatisfaction with the music available pushed him to create his own. He met Viktor Kray, incredible musician from Ukraine, who soon becomes his mentor and teacher.

In the wake of his friend’s death, his rage fueled his work. Through a mixture of soundscaping with cathedral-like voices, he was able to harmonize his anger that was inside him. His experimentation with sounds and words revealed lots of influence on artists and writers such as Pink Floyd, Robert Smith, Jim Morrison, Bob Marley, Ayn Rand, Nietzsche and Osho. The mixture of psychedelic classic rock and modern alternative music, with the philosophical approach of his book in progress about dreams and passion gave birth to “Merlinmoon”. The name came from a series of dreams focusing on Merlin the wizard reflected in the ocean by the moon’s light, which guided his thoughts in times of disappointment and frustration. Within a few months he received a call from a producer in Boston who heard one of his songs. The puzzle of lyrics, musical ability, composition, creativity and purpose started to come together. Merlinmoon finished his first EP “Poppy fields” on December 2006 which coincided with finishing the first ten chapters of his philosophy book “Free the chains in your mind”. On September 2007, he moved to LA to work with producer Ronan Chris Murphy, on his debut album “Stoned by dreams”. Merlinmoon together with drummer Bradley Greenberg and base player Payvand Salehi will take this experience live on stage on early 2008.

Lyrics

Poppy fields

Written By: merlinmoon

POPPYFIELDS,

Fix our wings and free our dreams
Takes us all where we can fly
Where poppy-flowers with the wind
Seem people dancing in their dreams

La La land where have you gone
You wont believe what you’ve done
You left us lost in a place
With grey flowers and seedless trees. ,

Take me back to La La Land
I lost my name in war
I wanted to fly but
The cloud of kings
Has cut my wings

Take me back to La La Land
I know that it seems far
I wanted to fly but
The cloud of kings
Has cut our wings,

In the sixties we grew wings
Querying kings about everything,
Now that our wings are hurt
We’ve lost the train to La La land,

Fields in heaven, flowers
All the names of colors things,
Things we have lost to the greed of kings,
Who queries them will loose their wings

Take me back to La La Land
I lost my name in war
I wanted to fly but
The cloud of kings
Has cut my wings

Take me back to La La Land
I know that it seems far
I wanted to fly but
The cloud of kings
Has cut our wings,

Yesterday is gone

Written By: merlinmoon

In a blink of time
Rain falls and dries
Past gone into frames,
Waiting for the wind
To move the clouds away
And cherish the days we had

It seems so far
And we don’t feel it coming,
And when tomorrow comes

Yesterday is gone

Nobody can stop time
Even if we could tonight
We have to let it go
We’ll sadly be apart.
Let the night ride the stars
Until the morning shines

It seems so far
And we don’t feel it coming,
And when tomorrow comes

Yesterday is gone

If I could be the wind

Written By: Merlinmoon

The sound
Of the rain coming down
At night
When the sky is full of clouds
Even though you are there
The clouds won’t let me see you tonight

You are the star,
I stare at night
And rainy days
Get you out of sight
If I could be the wind
I would clear the sky
To look at you
I’ll stare at you
Deep into the night
Till morning light
Gets you out of sight
If I could be the wind
I would clear the sky
To look at you

Sometimes
You are not visible at night
Because the clouds
Coat the blue with grey
Green that I
Keep falling for the look in your eyes

You are the star,
I stare at night
And rainy days
Get you out of sight
If I could be the wind
I would clear the sky
To look at you
I’ll stare at you
Deep into the night
Till morning light
Gets you out of sight
If I could be the wind
I would clear the sky
To look at you


You are the star,
I stare at night
And rainy days
Get you out of sight
If I could be the wind
I would clear the sky
To look at you
I’ll stare at you
Deep into the night
Till morning light
Gets you out of sight
If I could be the wind
I would clear the sky
To look at you

If I,
If I could be the wind
I would clear the sky
To look at you

If I,
If I could be the wind
I would clear the sky
To look at you

Fall into place

Written By: merlinmoon

It turns
And we don’t feel it move
The world is what we dream
In every day we breathe

We are
Innocent of breaking worlds
We are not the ones to blame,
Sinking where we stand.

God give the world a little push
So it can fall into place
Let the truth be told
And our eyes will find the way
Lets give the world a little push
So it can fall into place
If we believe what its worth
Then our eyes will find the way

We know
The truths will set us free,
It hides beneath the ground
In places we can see

In life
Only colors can be seen
So we can see the world,
With eyes that don’t lie

God give the world a little push
So it can fall into place
Let the truth be told
And our eyes will find the way
Lets give the world a little push
So it can fall into place
If we believe what its worth
Then our eyes will find the way

War, Envy, hate, hunger, crime,
Poverty, pain, fights, tragedy, killings,
Violence, sadness, enemies, prison,
Lies, injustice, rupture, corruption

God give the world a little push
So it can fall into place
Let the truth be told
And our eyes will find the way
Lets give the world a little push
So it can fall into place
If we believe what its worth
Then our eyes will find the way

Fall into place
Fall into place
Fall into place

One beat of silence

Written By: merlinmoon

Buried in the tub
On a rainy day
Whispering songs
Which remind me of you
The wet sun is drowning
And the moon is rising sad
And all I do…
Is think of you

One beat of silence
And all I do is think of you
One beat of silence
And all I do… Is think of you,

The candlelight
Is making shapes
Of stars and crosses
On your pictures on the wall
Burning strong
Our memories in vein
Listening
To your voice in the rain

One beat of silence
And all I do is think of you
One beat of silence
And all I do… Is think of you

If I could have
Written this story
I would’ve been lost
When you walked in my life

One beat of silence
And all I want is you
One beat of silence
One beat of silence
One beat of silence
All I want is you
People and faces
Take my mind to places
And when silence comes
It hits me strong
And all I do… Is think of you

One beat of silence
And all I want is you
One beat of silence
One beat of silence
One beat of silence
All I want is you
People and faces
Take my mind to places
And when silence comes
It hits me strong
And all I do… Is think of you

And all I do… Is think of you

Bullets going through me

Written By: Merlinmoon

I sang to you every day
Watching the sunset
I couldn't stop my feelings
Until my fingers went numb

I was singing our song
In which kings cut wings
Standing before a fire in between
The ocean and the stars

I feel bullets going through me
When I say good-bye to you…
I feel bullets going through me
When I say good-bye to you…

I felt dead stoned
Falling in peace
Closer and closer
To everything I dreams

Everything felt so perfect
That I felt your time was done
I knocked you with the fire
Burning in the sand

I feel bullets going through me
When I say good-bye to you…
I feel bullets going through me
When I say good-bye to you…

I feel bullets going through me
When I say good-bye to you…
I feel bullets going through me
When I say good-bye to you…

The trail has gone cold

Written By: Merlinmoon

I am standing in the corner stone
Waiting for the queen of my castle
The harder I try to find her
The more she slips away

I don't want for spring
To blossom me a new flower
It was my wind that blew her wings
And made her take her things

Today, the trail has gone cold
I'll walk back the way I came
I'll take the train until it rains
I’ll prey for the wind
To show me the way
Where every lightning strikes
It’s where I'll try to find her

I wish I could close my eyes
And wait until she comes by
Like when the wind blows in
And we feel it in our skin

The fountain that springs her beauty
The flaming fires in her eyes
The light that spreads her smile
And I am waiting alone down the isle

Today, the trail has gone cold
I'll walk back the way I came
I'll take the train until it rains
I’ll prey for the wind
To show me the way
Where every lightning strikes
It’s where I'll try to find her

Today, the trail has gone cold
I'll walk back the way I came
I'll take the train until it rains
I’ll prey for the wind
To show me the way
Where every lightning strikes
It’s where I'll try to find her

Under next years sun

Written By: Merlinmoon

Summer is gone
These days are over
Will I ever see you…
I wish
To see you again
And kiss you
Where our last sun
Was shared

The moon falls every day at dawn
I cant wait that long
For summer to come

I miss the suns we shared
I miss every time
The night falls into

Moonlight
Is what great for us to happen
But it’s sad
That we’ll have to wait
For next year's
Sun
That we’ll have to wait
For next year’s
Sun
I’ll see you on the next year’s sun

I miss the suns we shared
I miss every time
The night falls into

Moonlight
Is what great for us to happen
But it’s sad
That we’ll have to wait
For next year's
Sun
That we’ll have to wait
For next year’s
Sun
I’ll see you on the next year’s sun

Stoned by dreams

Written By: Merlinmoon

Lost in space
Deep inside the moon
Inside the dreams
In your mind

The time will come
The day has just begun
I saw Merlin reflected
In the ocean by the moon
Soon you’ll be on top of the world
It’s just a question of time
Following the light
That thrusts upon your eyes,

And every time, every time, every time,
I am lost in time
Never, never, never, will my mind
And clocks ticks rhyme
And everyday, everyday, everyday
I am lost in space
I walk through walls
Stoned by dreams

Lost in space
Counter clock, your time
Walk along your dreams
And you’ll fly high

And every time, every time, every time,
I am lost in time
Never, never, never, will my mind
And clocks ticks rhyme
And everyday, everyday, everyday
I am lost in space
I walk through walls
Stoned by dreams

And every time, every time, every time,
I am lost in time
Never, never, never, will my mind
And clocks ticks rhyme
And everyday, everyday, everyday
I am lost in space
I walk through walls
Stoned…
Stoned by dreams


Days of rage into the light

Written By: Merlinmoon

Words
Without reason
Fire back
In the eyes of trouble
When revenge
Color walls
Silence fails and falls

Draw swords
To hungry crows
They want youth
To stop its growth
Uncovering eyes
With ancient knives
To fan the flames of bursting lies

Take the finger of the trigger
Lift the guns and let the bullets fall
Use your hands
To build new walls
And the world will face a change

Time will heal the wounds
Of faces lost in war
Words will keep them healed
But the scars will never go
Away, away
No more days of rage
No more days of rage
No more days of rage

Throw stones
Up to the air
Try to hit
All hunting birds
Struggling minds
That misread words
Breaking silence to wake up war

The key to peace
It’s hard to find
Hidden far
From broken minds
Ancient pages
Blindfold eyes
So innocence can make us high

Take the finger of the trigger
Lift the guns and let the bullets fall
Use your hands
To build new walls
And the world will face a change

Time will heal the wounds
Of faces lost in war
Words will keep them healed
But the scars will never go
Away, away
No more days of rage
No more days of rage
No more days of rage

Take the finger of the trigger
Lift the guns and let the bullets fall
Use your hands
To build new walls
And the world will face a change

Time will heal the wounds
Of faces lost in war
Words will keep them healed
But the scars will never go
Away, away
No more days of rage
No more days of rage
No more days of rage

The men of the great assembly
Rule with great wisdom
In which the world is maintained
With pure kindness among people
We should let the fear of heaven
Guide our senses
And define our will
Which then defines destiny…
Which then defines destiny…

Free the chains in your mind
Free the chains in your mind
Free the chains in your mind
Getting stoned by your dreams

Why do we harm
And cause suffering?
Why do we break
The laws of nature
To seek false joy
Through selfishness
For personal satisfaction?
And death becomes the light
When life is just to painful…
Just to painful…

Free the chains in your mind
Free the chains in your mind
Free the chains in your mind
Getting stoned by your dreams

Imagine
How to dramatize
The nakedness of suffering
Only in a dream of innocence
Can this be seen
Only in sleep are we sheltered
From the power of humiliation
Who harms should suffer
Without compassion
And pay for the healing of hearts
That mankind poisons
The Prince of Heaven
Can set us free
Respecting the natural laws
From which temptation leads us astray
We stand upon
The authorities of kings
And distinguish ourselves
By the moral principles
Of loving, caring for one another,
And worshiping God.
We are not afraid
To worship
What we are to become
To find
The visible light of truth
The door to salvation
To a restored world
Where everybody
Has the same right
To be unique and successful
In their own way

If we believe in this cause
It’s the only chance
We have
To raise the visibility
Of the empire of divinity
Erasing the fact
That the forbidden fruit
Caused our fall from grace
Planting in fertile soil
Millions of seeds
That will not come into this world
In order to suffer

It all seems like an illusion
Of dry tears in the horizon
Where the prism of red flames
Was seen for the first time
Without knowledge of what it meant
The light of a candle
Inspired and illuminated
The mind that brought
Meaning to this illusion
With the mission
To lead millions of others
Onto the path
Of a new beginning
Where life would be informed
By an ideology based
Only in three things
Love, joy and companionship
