about

Sandy Lane Leeds, UK

Sandy Lane is a storytelling project using music as the vehicle for expression. Set in a fictional existence, four very different people come together in a time of crisis, in hopes of averting what is called 'The Hatching'; the unfolding of the land around them.

We write out of our passion for music, and hope you enjoy what you hear, whether it be the music or the story you discover.

Track Name: Silence
I sit and say a word, to myself before it starts
A night with me is time away from younger still
A derelict existence, but the world will never know
The blood that curves its way throughout, the sand

I lay back just to let him, take away this innocence
I hear old Delilah screaming, who is first to take her name?
If I told you what I'd seen, all the dirt that won't come clean
If I could you just wouldn't believe

If it grows inside of her, then at least the story ends
It's not as god intended, but he left us alone
What do we deserve, tell me what do we deserve
Lift him out of me and cease

Love is never relevant, take a seed just for a meal
It's easy just to let it go, but I'll never settle until
They get what they deserve, when they get what they deserve
Rise up with the righteous and sieze

The night is finally over, but the tears have just begun
And soon I will be sitting in silence
Track Name: Without Voice
Without voice without any friends
Without love without any sense
I don't have words to say
Even if there were few who would, listen

The day that follows night resumes a frantic pace
Work for something worse

Without voice without any defence
Without hope without a single dream
Not even time to try
Between the heartbreak and my services

The day that follows night resumes a frantic pace
Work for something worse

If this tragedy can break away, all of the others can surprise our faith

The day that follows night resumes a frantic pace
Work for something worse
The Architects would never let this carry on
Curse the Blaze for falls

Without voice without any friends
Without love without any sense
Track Name: Can We Go Lower
Can we go lower is the night only young for us
Can it get worse than the things that have come before
Can we go lower than the limit we thought was there
Do we accept that the world will never protect

Distance is, the only reason we resist to break away
Into the sunlight of the day
Trinity, the only reason they persist to pave the way
Into the fires of the end
I fear that the worst is yet to come

Can we go lower is the night only young for us
Can it get worse than the things that have come before
Can we go lower than the limit we thought was there
Do we accept that the world will never protect

Morality, the only faith in what consumes the optimist
You know we can hope for a change
Disappear, an evil slips away into the golden age
Where we cannot rule ourselves

They forgot, all of us
They breach the skies, with iron flight

Can we go lower is the night only young for us
Can it get worse than the things that have come before
Can we go lower than the limit we thought was there
Do we accept that the world will never protect

Cause we were left alone, we were left alone, no more
Cause we were left alone, we were left alone, no more

Anymore
Track Name: Breathe
The absence of sunlight it breaks my will
Feels like the walls keep on closing in
Can you believe all the things that I've never seen
You'll be counting for years all the places I've never been
I've struck it lucky I'm getting out
I'm sure to come back and tell you all about
The roar of the thunder the calm of the midnight sea
The wind in my hair and the love of being free

And it feels like I'm aching, but I must be surely
Breathing, I'm breathing, I'm breathing, I'm learning how to live
And it feels like the ending recedes with all my
Breathing, I'm breathing, I'm learning how to live

My hands, blister almost instantly
The breeze hits so hard, I fall to my knees
All of the words in the world aren't enough for me
I pick up a handful of sand to decide what's real

And it feels like I'm aching, but I must be surely
Breathing, I'm breathing, I'm breathing, I'm learning how to live
And it feels like the ending recedes with all my
Breathing, I'm breathing, I'm learning how to live

And it won't be long until, we break this goddamn door down
And we can live with others above the ground
And it won't be long until, we get the chance to feel this
The wonders of the open, air

For a place that seems so calm, you couldn't blame a man for walking on
Ignoring us
No you cannot hear the screams, or the snap as they decide to break
Her legs again
I have a voice, I'll scream about these atrocities

And it feels like I'm aching, but I must be surely
Breathing, I'm breathing, I'm breathing, I'm learning how to live
And it feels like the ending recedes with all my
Breathing, I'm breathing, I'm learning how to live

And it won't be long until, we break this fucking door down
And we can live with others above the ground
And it won't be long until, we get the chance to feel this
The wonders of the open, air
Track Name: Stasis
I've been told that this is a special thing
To be chosen to be kept within
The safest place for me, is in a liquid dream
It seems perfect as they separate
My existence from all the real ways
The only way to stop, don't be involved at all, at all

Step by step we move along into the waters that'll be surrounding me for years
In this chamber I don't see how time is of a use to me, alive but cannot live

I'm not bigger than this, the devil's there to rely on
A selfish synergy, I am them

Step by step we move along into the waters that'll be surrounding me for years
Time and time again I see the world is not prepared to give me wings so I can rise
Even if it means that I am helping them to push ahead I cannot suffer this
Surely only so much can be taken by a single person I have had enough

I'm not bigger than this, the devil's there to rely on
A selfish synergy, I am them, I am

Hope, waits for me in the blue
Stay, the distance draws me in
Please, separate my mind from living
Save, me from all you plan to do
Don't wake me up, don't wake me up

Don't blame me for this
You would do the same
Seclusion is favourable

I'm not bigger than this, the devil's there to rely on
A selfish synergy, I am them, I am

Hope, waits for me in the blue
Stay, the distance draws me in
Please, separate my mind from living
Save, me from all you plan to do
Don't wake me up, don't wake me up
Don't wake me up, don't wake me up
Track Name: The Last Time
The last time, was when I saw the fear in your eyes
As the bullet came and tore right through your little life
It was only then I could understand that we weren't alone
For years the silence told, we would be left to grow so old
But they needed something that we never knew we had

You said to never let them take control
Losing breath beneath the thick vermillion
My dear old friend you have to grow, just never show
The crimson flash of pain, wait for the time to rise again
You must learn to be, braver than any living soul

But it seems to me, that I'm sick with fear, tonight

Can you recall all the memories
Of mother and her daughter so content
The angels are deciding to break my heart
I may see you again, but if the gods are good the end
Will not rush towards you my girl, you have much to see

But it seems to me, that I'll never leave, this place

With all her strength, she honoured me with love once more
My only light, Haven sits now in the dark
Just know I will never, forget

But it seems to me, that I'm sick with fear
But it seems to me, that I'll never leave, this place
Track Name: Sever Suspension
Breathe in, breathe out, the world returns
The flood recedes, and takes my dreams
Is there more you ask of me this day
I would give my soul and more to stay

Sever suspension, I know what you're thinking
I'm not quite a part of the plans that you're here for
All of this time we, just can't find an answer
I must be a tired and tragic example

Please don't take me back my promise falls
Liquid absolution screams the call

Sever suspension, I know what you're thinking
I'm not quite a part of the plans that you're here for
All of this time we, just can't find an answer
I must be a tired and tragic example

So you claim you're here to save
There's no option left to take
The red will recede, maybe the second chance is real

One step at a time, I move again
The scenes before, are with the dead

Sever suspension, I know what you're thinking
I'm not quite a part of the plans that you're here for
All of this time we, just can't find an answer
I must be a tired and tragic example

Sever suspension, I know what you're thinking
I'm not quite a part of the plans that you're here for
All of this time we, just can't find an answer
I must be a tired and tragic example
Track Name: Maybe
Maybe the cycle, will resist the repeat
Maybe the breakout, will declare a release
But it only scares me, all the things I can see
If only you knew me, and my time underneath

It's so unfamiliar, the way that you stand
Discarding the movement, towards

Are just another, don't pull me under
Just like the others, don't pull me under

Maybe the target, understands the retreat
Maybe the man tends, to react to the scene
Disorder within them, I see not a thing
A heart in the iron, of the broken Machine

I made it out once I know but twice I'm not so sure
How can I trust in you with all that's come before

It's so unfamiliar, the way that you stand
Discarding the movement, towards

Are just another, don't pull me under
Just like the others, don't pull me under
Are just another, don't pull me under
Just like the others, don't pull me under
Track Name: Fear
A single decision led her to the peaceful grove
One of the same could lift you out of history
Do you feel that everyone's to blame
Or do you think you can't carry the pain

But I feel the strain, I feel nothing, the lovers wait for me

A single word spoken and I see the fall of man
A soul that's unable to recover from it all
No matter I will stick myself right here
But the calm before the storm is what I fear

But i feel the strain, I feel nothing, the lovers wait for me
The little shame, beside your name, built to be a great

Give me something we can use and then
It's all we'll ever need, it's all we'll ever need
Give me something we can use and then
It's all we'll ever need, it's all we'll ever need

For now it seems you want to come along
But will the gears and pistons bring their song
The white withdrawn I pray it won't come back
I'm doing all I can to bring the black
To chase the world is to have nothing left
Find the faith in those who want to help
You are not alone we are the same
Now we know the monsters we can blame

Give it all you've got we'll make it right
Give it all you've got we'll make it right

Give me something we can use and then
It's all we'll ever need, it's all we'll ever need
Give me something we can use and then
It's all we'll ever need, it's all we'll ever need
Track Name: A Little Drop of Light
You turn your back on, with a little drop of light
Are you embarrassed, stay you need to hear about my sins
It's not that I'm not partial to your advances
My memories just won't let me sleep
Can you be patient, can you wait forever if you have to

The monsters have had me
I am just a whore
My family the darkness came to take their souls

You're my only hope of smiling
I once said, there's no way out

We don't fit, you're heartless and I have, just too much to give
No I may not be the girl of your dreams
But you must know slaughter, ain't what it seems
I think that I love you, but I never understood the word
Can you be patient, cause I just need a little more time

The monsters have had me
I am just a whore
My family the darkness came to take their souls

You're my only hope of smiling
I once said, there's no way out
In the night, beneath the moon
Will you be mine, and let me shine, far

Now you agree so I'm ready for you

The monsters have had me
I am just a whore
My family the darkness came to take their souls

You're my only hope of smiling
I once said, there's no way out
In the night, beneath the moon
Will you be mine, and let me shine
Just let me shine, just let me shine
Come let me shine, come let me shine
Just let me shine, let me shine
Let me shine, come let me shine

Oh, I've been missing out
Oh, is this what it's all about
Oh, I never knew that life could be so good
Oh, I'm complete

I feel, I feel, your soul
Track Name: Shine
Cracking the sky, we may see the sinners soon
I cannot help but crack a smile
We're on our way to death, but it never really scares me
To fall together is enough

We all have many flaws
But he has shown me there is light in us all

I sense the anger and it seems it won't be stopped
Now I encourage every pain
The men high above us, are the murderers the thieves
With all I have seen, there can still be some forgiveness

We all have many flaws
But he has shown me there is light in us all
They are nothing more than products of a twisted view
As I said to him I say to you they're not to blame

The parents and the sand don't represent the hope we have
More the evil of the Cult a past we'll leave behind
We are of the four that showed you everything
Call a revolution save the axes from them

People of the Haven they will see it open
Only you can save us as the world is hatching
Men your wives and children never stop believing
Architects are coming, time to take it all back
