Biography

Shift Seven combines four unique musical backgrounds with one common love of music.
Friends for over a decade, the four members that make up this band have performed in several musical genres and bring them all together to create a distinct sound that combines Rock, Celtic and Country music.

This rich history of diverse musical interests comes through on their first album - Burning Daylight. Set to be launched in the summer of 2006, this CD gives a taste of the unique sound that Shift Seven has developed over the past two years.

Lyrics

Eye of Rambaldi

Written By: Shift Seven

In a time of revolution watch what you dare to say
Stay inside with your illusions or you’re going to have to pay

And I don’t care that you see tomorrow
And I don’t care what you think that you know
To stay alive, you’d better close the Eye of Rambaldi

In the signs of their confusion you hide your plans away
And despite your inner vision you still have to meet the flame

And I don’t buy that that was the way to go
And I don’t buy that they had the right and so
The weak of mind would have to blind the Eye of Rambaldi

Hide yourself away
And you could see another day
But all the plans you made
Will put you in your grave
Cause you just can’t look away

Since the crime that they committed your visions have come to pass
Now the spies are on a mission to see through your hour glass

And I don’t know if they’re going to see it through
And I don’t know if they’ll get the best of you
Perhaps in time, we’ll see behind the Eye of Rambaldi

Secret Skyline

Written By: Shift Seven

Deep insight into the works of Shakespeare
Is forever nice, in a lake of fire and ice
Foolish demands or is rights of passage
To hold out your hands or risk being blinded by the sun
On the run, change for none,
And nobody's won
Tonight no one's to blame

Under this secret skyline
Tonight I'll still be hungry aaaaah but I don't mind
Reason enough to sacrifice me for you said I'd find
A way to let my mind go free
As if that could apply to me

Wasting time as we wait to reincarnate
And as years go by, we'll seldom speak of anyone
Throughout the land, we'll bear the weight of bonus
With bloodied hands while swearing never to be outdone
On the run, change for none,
I'm nobody's son
And tonight I feel no pain

Under this secret skyline
Tonight I'll still go hungry aaaaah but I don't mind
Reason enough to sacrifice me for you said I'd find
A way to let my mind go free
As if that could apply to me

I say as if that could apply to me
That can't apply to me

On the run, change for none,
Nobody's won
And tonight no one's to blame

Under this secret skyline
Tonight I'll still go hungry aaaaah but I don't mind
Reason enough to sacrifice me for you said I'd find
A way to let my mind go free
As if that could apply to me
