Secrets across his face A lazy man without space He walks alone in a burning way Hidden in an unlikely place Restless dreams tip toe in his arms Bring him down

Sun and moon Split in two Left and right Day joins night Sleep has dreams to forgive Side by side Which is me? Which is you? Which is me? Which is you?

Wild bones and sacred secrets They'll come down from heaven Silent time, start to swim Plant your seeds that carry to me Carnival of all lies on your lips She stays silent, time to fill the dark Silent, kind. All is blue like a big ocean But i'm through dark waters Silent time, start to swim She stays silent, time to fill the dark Silent, kind.

I walk on evil dirty sand and falling icons Trying to keep an even pace Give me a reason to stay Here I am like a bolt trying to crash into the ground I will do it, you can count on it I will do it, you can count on me All the lies on my back in a web of comets end (If you can't swim into the sound) In space I’m going to rest (if you can't reach the enlightening bound) In that place I’m going to rest.

I’m waiting for thunders to see the dust of my old life I'm taking a breath to see where the shadows slip behind blue light All of us are lost in this hell But I sit in the hum of a new sun What dreams shall come to pass? I’m waiting myself hidden somewhere in my heart I’m waiting mercy and decline, that's all we will find.

Neither god nor illusion delete our fears but fantasies of your smile hold me tight Rejuvenate me And comb away the years from my hair Save me From the void grown on my shoulders Floating forever in search of a star, we gnaw at the heart we stay forward the moon rising small.

03:53
We look into the sky more and more high Searching new worlds We feed our souls And I know I’m a strange one But I’m not just a ghost like you There are wild beings everywhere And all that I did was daydream And I’ll dissolve finally Drifting forever Looking for a new world We lost ourselves Different from all others We've not fear of nothingness.

about

Over four years since the release of Earthbeat, Be Forest returns with news of their most ambitious and atmospheric album to date—Knocturne. Their third album and first offering since the sensational 2016 single "Glow"—the trio enlisted Steve Scanu to assist with production and mixing duties with mastering courtesy of Josh Bonati to help create the group's most moody, beguiling and mesmerizing full-length to date. Presenting the debut of the album’s first single “Bengala”, the Pesaro three piece spins hazy dream keys and chords into a whirlpool of sensations that orbit like constellations of discovery and enlightenment.
The b/w video for Knocturne's opener "Atto I" allows the audience to behold the grand curtain rising spectacle that bears witness to a specter-like vapor that materializes like a hybrid of smoke, steam and fog that invites the viewer/listener into the void. Be Forest shared the following about audio and visual for the album’s commencement: “We sit as the audience watching on stage what we really are and the abyss in which we need to learn how to swim in" Entertaining the allure and intrigues of evening inceptions; Be Forest’s new full-length album navigates the cryptic courses between worlds like the airy and inverted "Empty Space", or the cinematic duality of doppelgangers on "Gemini", to film-style scores inspired by Kafka-esque stories as heard on"K". Sinewy subterranean soundtracks for film thrillers not yet made can be heard on"Sigrido", that then returns the listening audience to the second and suspenseful movement of "Atto II". Knocturne is a song cycle that commiserates with our own collective international uncertainty and unease of these current times, bringing breaks in the luster of night—like the fractured "Fragment"—with the shining beacons of aural light at the end of the
tunnel like "Bengala", to the dream portrait closer "You, Nothing".
Those seeking the tangible terrain and audio designed environments of Be Forest's previous releases are in for a mind, spirit and emotional awakening as the band described in their own words; "It took us a long time to write, record, and finish this album, but it took us even longer to
understand its very soul. Unlike our other albums, here there’s no color or geographic place that we can reference: we aren’t in the woods in Norway [as found on the debut record Cold] or in a reservation around a bonfire [like on the second album Earthbeat]."
