about

Andrew Barker Toronto, Ontario

Andrew Barker lives and dreams in Toronto. His projects combine the eyes and hands of a craftsman with the ears of a critic; weaving together dark tales of lunar prophesies, unquenchable desires and cruel fates written in the remnants of tea leaves. His songs rest like novels on a dusty bookshelf, patiently waiting to be discovered by fellow wanderers in search of wisdom. ... more

Track Name: Low Moon
Low moon follow me home
Hanging around all night I know
How it feels to be down

Low moon watching me with one eye
You keep half your face hidden
Hooded in the night

Low moon Low moon

Prowling the city skyline
Playing hide and seek
Biding your time
Eavesdropping in on me
Eavesdropping in on me

Wandering satellite
Lost polar star
Adrift in the nights
Ink black sea
Calling out
To me

Low moon shine your light
Our paths don’t cross as often
These days as I’d like

Low moon Low moon

Low moon
Track Name: Night Terrors
Lift the caul that
Veils my eyes
From false gods
unnecessary lies

As true as delicate
As a spider’s thread
the will o the wisp draws me
Across hell’s half acres
Night terrors
Night terrors

In the twilight of dusk
The maize pulled from its husk
A feast of souls
In the sunset gold

A serpent can’t rest
Until the sun sets
The bulrushes sound
The nights murky depths
Night terrors
Night terrors

I talk in my sleep
I walk in my sleep
The Will o the wisp draws me
Across hell’s half acres

Take flight into the night
Drawn like a moth’s eye
Towards the moonlight
The devil take the hindmost

Night terrors
Night terrors
Track Name: Mistakes
I make mistakes
But everything’s in it's right place
Tied together by moments
I'm lead by my senses
I blur the lines
Like looking out the window
Of a car driving by
By white picket fences

I blur the lines
I make mistakes

I make mistakes
But everything’s is in it's right place
Tied together by
The lies
That betray the truth
About the love
Between me and you
I blur the lines
I make mistakes

I make mistakes
I make mistakes
I make mistakes
I make mistakes
Track Name: the Way These Days
The days i have seen
The way things have been

You wove your sorcery around me
And all i brought myself to do was brood,
And stew over you
And i know that you knew

The way you shook those hips
The way you licked your lips
My head still spins from your tricks

Despite myself i’ve always known
That when i’m with you
We’re never so alone

You wove your sorcery around me
And all i brought myself to do was brood,
And stew over you
And i know you knew

Despite myself i’ve always known
That when i’m with you
We’re never so alone
Track Name: Best Kept Secret
Promise me that you will keep
This between you and me
I believe that you would be
Best kept secret
You could be my best kept secret and
I will keep you all to myself
Through sickness through health
Through songs and through wealth
Just for me will you keep
Best kept secret

Don’t run away I stalk my prey
You’d be lucky to live to regret the day
Just stay with me stay hidden away
And i will keep the hounds at bay

Best kept secret

Promise me by day that
You will watch what you say
And like a blinded bird
I’ll let you sing all night
Don’t put up a fight
Promise you won’t tell
I will keep you under my spell
Through heaven through hell
Through wedding bells
Just for me will you keep
Best kept secret
Track Name: Pompeii
The shine in the shadows
Swings like a swinging pendulum
Its flickering light comes
Through the trees
The torch lit
Tinderstick

So light a fire in the heather
And flush out the adder’s
Where the smoke floats like feathers
From ash to ash
To ember to ember

Petrified town
Buried stories underground
Pompeii


Autumn leaves alight the ground
The wind stokes the coals of this burning town
The tree limbs tattooed with the seasons past
Like shadows in the hourglass

So light a fire in the heather
And flush out the adder’s
Where the smoke floats like feathers
From ash to ash
To ember to ember

In a petrified town
Stories underground
Pompeii

Ash to ash, ember to ember, ash to ash, ember to /
Ember, ash to ash, ember to ember, ash to ash, em /
Ber to ember, ash to ash, ember to ember, ash to /
Ash, ember to ember, ash to ash, ember to ember /
Track Name: Young Phoenix
I fly my plane kamikaze
Into a ball of flames mars leaps
Into the sun to kingdom come

From the tides of ash burnt in the urn
And with the washed ashore wreckage
I’ll rise a young phoenix with so much to learn

The past resonates
The future hesitates

There’s a long way to go
To start again

An empty vessel at birth
Breaking into new verse
Learning to lose, learning to
Burn in a baptism of fire
Chasing my ashes ‘cross the pyre
Where once were flames
Only embers remain

The past initiates
The future deviates

There’s a long way to go
To start again

There's a long way
To start again

The past disintegrates
The future regenerates

There’s a long way to go
To start again

I fly my plane kamikaze
Into a ball of flames mars leaps
Into the sun to kingdom come
Track Name: the Storm Beneath the Horizon
Something is stirring
Beneath the horizon
A monolithic iceberg
In the frozen ocean
Its bowers only open
Into the night

Babe can you hear the rain love
On our window pane

Lightning is striking
Just out of reach from our eyes
On the crest of the horizons sky
And we can hear the bellows of the storm
But maybe it will never come

Babe can you hear the rain love
On our window pain

Babe can you hear the rain love
On our window
Babe can you hear the rain love
On our window
Babe can you hear the rain love
On our window pane
