Song Seven Seas Of Solitude
is a story about feeling as an outsider on Earth, that you don't understand the world and the world doesn't understand you. I wrote this song in 2008 and have mixed it several times before, naturally now used the latest realtracks. But still I prefer the MIDI guitars from my old Roland which I used the first time, actually the only time I have used its sounds. This song is kind of a prototype pop song I like to make and also to listen to, realizing my slogan "Mostly harmless pop music"

, Cantus VSTi Lyrics:
The world didn't value my gift
I was a stranger adrift
not a special loved one, faith didn't lift
envy was bitter and swift.
From the angels received
instructions for building an ark
the court room was deaf to defence
like Cain I had my curse mark.
Condemned to live in exile
I was an outcast subdued,
sailing the vast seven seas
of my solitude.
I never took root in this land
starved like a rose in the sand
I did not want to soil my clean hand
in the war I did not understand.
