Quicksilver Night - Lucent

by Quicksilver Night Productions

supported by


Each of the three songs of Quicksilver Night's digital-only album "Lucent" explores themes related to the choices that we make in the face of our apparent freewill and the aftermath of those choices. The lyrics are intended to be relevant to the basic human condition and generally reflect a philosophy that transcends issues of personal faith; these are the questions that drive us all.

Quicksilver Night Productions (QNP) is my music publishing and production company that also operates as a de facto record label. Although I jokingly refer to myself as “First Among Equals” at QNP and am deeply involved in all facets at every step of the way I know that can’t do this alone; I am very grateful for the support of my song-specific collaborators and tech-savvy friends. ... more

Track Name: Precipice
In my life, was I wrong? Have I known all along?
I wonder now, did I give enough? Am I shriven of my sins?
Have I lost my way? Find another day.

I've arrived at this point of no return
Still alive, but there's more yet to be learned
Those bridges burn...

Far too late, start again. Hesitate at the end
I fail to see; there's no reason here, only sudden fear
Why now? Have I gained some truth wasted on my youth?

Did I blink? It all somehow passed me by
Now I think it I just simply closed my eyes
I chose my lies

All of this, not enough, meaningless without love
What shall I choose? Do I stand and jump or let myself fall?
It's all a question of my will. I am breathing still

I've arrived at this point of no return
Still alive, but there's more yet to be learned
Those bridges burn...
Track Name: Lucent
Each yesterday illuminates…
Look to the past, shaded; like colored glass, faded
And through this lens, focused, the truth amends, holds us in place…

Tomorrow knows a shining hope…
The here and now yet holds a vision clear but cold
Do we accept, inured? Our dreams deflect, deferred, still wait…
And drift away

We are both the shadows and the light
Silhouetted in each other’s sight
Curtains on the windows of our eyes
Candles in the mirrors of our minds
Burning in cold flame, embers soon dimming…

Our yesterdays, distant faint glow, illuminate each tomorrow…
Footprints on sand, shifting in open hands, sifting
Unbroken lines, winding onward through time, finding our way…
Track Name: Again the Cusp
Here, at the ledge, fear whispers soft doubt
Clear in my head, near and reaching out

My will sustains; I steel my resolve
Who still remains? You failed to evolve

But I’ve gone beyond this.
