about

This is the debut solo EP for Patrick Dal Cin.

The EP was recorded between February 2015 and April 2015 in Talbot College, room 345a.

Some final words from Patrick:

Inside this EP, you will find much of who I am as a musician. You will hear my influences, and you will hopefully hear the sentiment of changing futures and uncertainty. Different Horizons was a concept story I made between fictitious characters, that has fragments of what different possibilities in life might hold.

I always liked albums with many contrasting moments, and you will find that each song is drastically different than the rest! I hope you enjoy and appreciate the excellent performances that the other musicians have done!

I'd like to thank all of the incredible musicians who were a part of this recording process. Your contributions to the songs were an essential part of making the EP sound much better than I had ever hoped. Many of you had other commitments and schedules, and managed to find the time to come in and nail the material (usually on the first take!).

A big thanks to Josh Try, who dedicated his own time to help me transport gear in his vehicle and helped lend some ears to the audio engineering process.

An especially big thanks to Jay Hodgson, who gave me the opportunity to record in his space and make this EP possible as part of a school course project. He gave me an opportunity I would have never had otherwise, and has been on my bucket-list for a long time. Jay also mastered the EP and made it sound absolutely incredible!

And of course, I'd like to thank my family and friends who always support my very crazy endeavors into projects like these. Without you, I wouldn't have the motivation to keep pushing forward and becoming a better musician, songwriter and mix engineer!

Track Name: Frames
A solitary night
Where the memories are tapes and the child is dead
Frames watching the world go by
Like a season ever changing
Reflections of another time
It's time for me to start over
It's time for me to start over...

Get in the car
Drive away from this place I used to know
To know the distance of where I'll go
The sound of an engine
Breaks the silence across the countryside
Start it up again
And drive away

I know it was so long ago
When you looked back at me with a flame in your eye
Whose eyes did I see?
A blank face of the person I used to be
Some settle for sometimes less than more
More often than not you reached for the door
An escape to a place I never knew

Get in the car
Drive away from this place I used to know
To know the distance of where I'll go
The sound of an engine
Breaks the silence across the countryside
Start it up again
And drive away
Track Name: Out of My Head
I'm going to walk downtown through the alley square
With nothing but my thoughts
Sucking smoke just to clear the air
Feeling the rough lines etched upon my face
Time has had its toll
On a life I can't erase
Pull back again into the bar
To find my real friends
The ones who kill the pain
Know it's my only say
I know you've played your games
I'm not your toy
It's not about you

Get out of my head, there's no tomorrow
Giving up the future we tried to bend
Tearing up the pictures of this toxin filled Hell
No preservation

You've got me ensnared
Prey to rattlesnakes
I was unaware, tempted by the bait
Clutching my head in my hands
My knees give away
I struggle to stand
And I'm looking at you
I'm looking at you
I can feel your poison seep into my skin
Suck the venom out with my tainted lips
No, you're the only one
I know as I taste the gun
I'm not your toy
It's not about you

Get out of my head, there's no tomorrow
Giving up the future we tried to bend
Tearing up the pictures of this toxin filled Hell
No preservation
Track Name: Winter
Slipping back to that old, tired winter
When fires smoldered and lacked the heat
To warm our hands... to warm our feet...
But we kept living without a care
And we breathed the cold season
In our rhythm we seemed to share
Only you... only me...
If only it were back again

We are...
We are...
Children of winter that will fill our hearts
We love...
Freedom...
We could go back again... back again...

The frost was biting at the window pane
Blowing winds shook the trees outside
But we were lost in our own lullabies
Our own... Our own...
Home, now alone...
Winter passed as we grew old
If only it were back again
Track Name: Horizons
We could fly to the setting sun
Holding the heat between ourselves
And dream of those days
When our love was enough
Chasing our own different horizons
Painting the sky with a different blue
And fearing the change
Of a life without you

And in the clouds I see you now
Cutting the weights that tie you down
Floating away into distant space
Will I still know your name?

I see it's bad, you can't carry your soul
I know it's hard to face the darkened days alone
Tell me something before you drown in smoke
A fleeted love to pass the time
Prison bars and spirits take you every night
Hands holding a heart pierced by knives

The light fades for a dying star
Black holes and dead space between our hearts
Departed planets covered in dark
Wither away with the changing seasons
Feel the leaves as they fall to the ground
The world is silenced
There's not a sound

And in the clouds I see you now
Cutting the weights that tie you down
Floating away into distant space
Will I still know your name?

I see it's bad, you can't carry your soul
I know it's hard to face the darkened days alone
Tell me something before you drown in smoke
A fleeted love to pass the time
Prison bars and spirits take you every night
Hands holding a heart pierced by knives
Track Name: Hello Hannah
No rest for the ocean
No rest for my mind
No chance at peace when you left me behind
My feet touch the water's edge
Too numb to feel the chilling knife

I see your reflection now...
that warm smile...
If only I could hear your voice singing one last time...
One last time...

Hello Hannah won't you sing a song?
Of soaring melodies and those words you used to love
You said I don't understand... but I understand
It's the wave to wash away the pain
When you're feeling down
When you lose the way
In the dark, it's the light
Keep it close, hold it tight
Hello Hannah
