About Lavender Sky:
“The lyrics for “Lavender Sky” became a motion. From the trigger being pulled, a life that keeps on going faster and faster as the unknown measure of time we have keeps on going backward in what looks like an even faster pace, we embrace science, religion, power, control or whatever we may use to defy our fear of the unknown… The most resolute of all denials or the most sincere prayer prevails on nights for catching up on days and seasons to keep on turning against each other’s nature. But acceptance ain’t about being defeated, nor is truth something to be trusted.
In retrospect, it may sound like quite a pessimistic song, a bleak way to look at the world, a violent admission of faithlessness… But while honesty doesn’t know cynicism and bitterness, I see “Lavender Sky” as the acceptance of things we don’t know and can’t control, as much as an admittance of our own fear is what makes us who we are and keeps us as human as the sky we keep longing for… From a stranger to another.” – Alex Henry Foster
