Mesmerised 03:59
All Lyrics by Johanna Storimans MESMERISED Coming out from deep sleep Coming out of fright Turning towards the sunlight But not afraid to fight Face your inner demons Give up on control The only pathway possible Is to climb that inner wall Disconnect some cables, overthrow some labels Release some inner sources, unify those forces Accept your contradictions, loosen your convictions Remember your name, life ain’t no game We're running out of time Gaya sold for a dime It's staring us right in the face Gotta end this rat race Even the messenger boy is choking On the news he is convoking Let's quit this pathetic faking Until those walls start breaking Disconnect some cables, overthrow some labels Release some inner sources, unify those forces Accept your contradictions, loosen your convictions Remember your name, life ain't no game And through images & lies We're just being mesmerised It's high time to realise We're just hard core hypnotised Could you be loved, could you be loved Could you be loved, could you be loved

Karma 04:26
All Lyrics by Johanna Storimans KARMA The Queen’s castle was filled with joy To the brim of the castle where she kept her toy x2 Chained to the walls, vision long gone Appeared it was herself all along x2 Words slay down, cut wounds to the bones Nightmares wake up, attack like drones x2 When the mirror breaks and the veil’s lifted up You stare into the depth of your karma cup When you’re called to rise to the final beat You never know what will be your next treat And all the King’s horses and all the Queen’s men Can’t prevent karma from striking again When you’re called to rise to the final beat, final beat x 2 Words slay down, cut wounds to the bones Nightmares wake up, attack like drones x2 The king’s castle was filled with hope To the brim of the tower where he kept his rope Swinging from a sill, wings long gone Appeared it was himself all long Words slay down, cut wounds to the bones Nightmares wake up, attack like drones x4

about

A Thief in The Gift started in 2015 when Albert Camphyn recorded a few demo songs in his home studio. He asked Olivier Reynaerts to join him in developping and sharing ideas and compositions as well as playing piano and keyboards. Albert contacted in the same time the singer Johanna Storimans to write the lyrics and sing along.
When all songs were recorded, the band asked their long-time friend Vincent Hens to play acoustic drums on the CD.
