about

Ghosts and Shadows was founded by Gabriella Lawrence, Paul Wisner, KSushi (not her real name) and Steve Reynolds at a Halloween party. Paul had been playing guitar and writing songs for the Boston pop band Miskatonic; a band that Gabriella had been a member of for a short time. KSushi and Steve Reynolds had played together in the original lineup of the punk band Cheater Pint.

In 2016 KSushi decided to leave. Next Ghosts and Shadows was reincarnated by drummer Dean Fisher.

The original vision for Ghosts and Shadows was based on the early Cure records Faith and Seventeen Seconds... except with female vocals. The songs would incorporate surrealist themes and lyrics with sparse orchestration and moderate tempos. That was how it started.

Track Name: House of Cards
standing on a house of cards
shakey from very the start
be still, don’t you shake it
be still, don’t you shake it

standing on a house of cards
this old floor could fall apart
be still, don’t you shake it
be still, don’t you shake it

At night we pray to the stars
all that fear won't stop your heart
if you try escaping
everything could fall apart

standing on a house of cards
standing on a house of cards
be still, don’t you shake it
be still, don’t you shake it

standing on a house of cards
standing on a house of cards
be still, don’t you shake it
be still, don’t you shake it

see the light across the park
as we wander in the dark
warm wind blowing in the night
stars fall across the sky

watching as you slip away
grabbing at you as you
run away
Track Name: In the Dark
I've waited for you for a thousand years
the waiting the waiting all my desperate tears

In the dark / in the sound

Like the wind I'm invisible
Like the sea I wash right out
Like the earth you walk right over
Just like fire I flicker out

then you will finally come to me
in the night just like a dream

In the dark / in the sound

Like the wind I'm invincible
Like the sea I come crashing down
Like the earth I last forever
Just like fire I burn everything... ...to the ground

In the dark / in the sound
Track Name: Sea of Calm
Just over the crest / Just around the bend
Just over the crest / Just around the bend
Let go of the anchor
Let go of the anchor / So we can find...

CHORUS
The sea of calm / in the eye of the
storm / will we get to
sleep when night falls? / Dreaming of the
safe and warm, warm, warm, warm, warm, warm, warm

The trauma and terror that you feel
It's all too soon to know if you'll heal
It's raining tears / It's more like a flood
Don't become the propeller on the boat of blood

REPEAT CHORUS The sea of calm...

you can’t leave but you can’t stay
as your whole life gets washed away
If nothing is real / then are you sure
dark images / and shaking fear

REPEAT CHORUS x2 The sea of calm...

Let go of the anchor
