ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by Clark's Top Selling western horror mystery novel “Dead Balance”, the music and lyrics of "River of Lost Souls" continues a spiritual journey that began with “Logan’s Lament” and “In My Dream” into a surreal shadow world where Grammys® Recording Academy Artist Gary Wayne Clark (Earamas®; Rise of the Chimera & Passage to Niburu) weaves his musical vision quest.

The Ancient Ones believe that based on our deeds in this world, some spirits are imprisoned in a purgatory like existence between worlds, side by side, within multiple dimensions. When loved ones seeking atonement are taken too soon from this world and forced to cross over, part of their penitence leaves them trapped between worlds, desperately clinging to soul mates left behind. As their song of lover’s lament attempts to hold back the wheel of time, their eternal bond lingers in the ether of fleeting desperation. For now, they are but Wind Talkers, grasping for each other in the mist of dreams and those ephemeral moments the between the shadow and the light, between the iridescent hues of twilight and dawn.

Native American proverbs teach us, that “Day and night can’t live together,” and “There can be no rainbow without our tears.” True, but I choose to believe that for some of us, “Dreams are the truth, until we awaken.” And as Henry David Thoreau opined, “Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” I have to go with HDT on this one..

Lyrics
Your love has cast a spell on me
It took every thing I had
I can’t hide from my darker side
Good intentions turn to bad

They said our love was terminal
But I whisper it’s untrue
This love of ours is written in the stars
Death can’t keep my heart from you

In dreams we’ll live forever
Where broken hearts are whole
Restitution wash away my sins
In a river of lost souls

Yesterday I swore my love was true
Now my words just echo back
Holding on to our days bygone
As the memories fade to black

I hear a thousand voices
Only one to me is true
The love I send lingers in the wind
Eternally for you

In dreams we’ll live forever
Where broken hearts are whole
Restitution wash away my sins
In a river of lost souls

[Arapaho Prayer]

Beehiiniisonoonibéíhin [Father of all]
Cih'oonohooyobéi'ee [Watch over us!]
Kookóu'unei(hii) [Please]
Heetíh-néé'eesoo-' [We ask that it be so]
Nohuusóho' [Amen]

My heart is calling out to you
My heart beats to your distant drum
My heart forever is for you
Eternity has just begun

My heart is calling out to you
My heart beats to your distant drum
My heart forever is for you
Eternity has just begun..

Biography
Gary Wayne Clark is an Author, Grammy® Recording Academy Member and Poet that writes and records under the name Gary Wayne Clark, Gary Clark, and the band Earamas® & Earamas™. An engineer by training, a venture capitalist by trade, he is a storyteller at heart. The hallmark of his stories are critically acclaimed companion soundtracks, such as Rise of the Chimera and Passage to Niburu by his band Earamas®, and coming soon, Dead Balance, the soundtrack and film. His latest novel is an Amazon Top Ten Best Selling murder mystery / fantasy entitled "Dead Balance". When a haunting voice foretells impending deaths, an Arapahoe boy must unravel the ancient mystery of DeadRaven… before another body drops.

When he’s not traveling among the Hopi and Navajo tribes to spin tall tales, he lives in the High Country of Colorado on his ranch with his wife, a Great Doodle named Neli, and the spirit of his shapeshifting interspecies translator, a telepathic Great Dane named Raz.
