about

After the award winning Angels? album (best Rock album of 2015 on One World Music Radio), Forest Field just dived in with eyes closed and set out to make an even more exciting album. Loosely based on the Dune saga from Frank Herbert and other science fiction topics, Lonely Desert raises the bar even further. From instrumental tracks, to the epic Fear, the band bring their trademark melodies, harmonies and impressive guitar work to the next level. Let alone the beautiful art from the famous Blekkmark Design Studio...

Track Name: Valley Of Pain
oh lonely desert sun
you cut me down to size
make me forget my anger
only water on my mind
it's not easy to regain
a true goal in life
'cause when your father dies my friend
by deceit or the knife

oh lonely desert sun
you beat down on the sand
shape me through suffering
a life I now understand
heard about a prophecy
and found it in a stranger
already a man despite the age
showing the way through danger

going down into the valley of pain
chasing a dream of love
all I found was madness
but I would do it all again

when you live on the edge
nature becomes a friend
even if it's wild and cruel
you're gonna fight until the end
a dream can suddenly feel so real
destiny's the fuel
suffer through the pain and tears
with nothing to hold on to

going down into the valley of pain...

who rides the desert
who rules the mind
who leads the people
who will rule mankind
he will see the future
he will see the past
he will speak for many
he will show the path

(we all suffer from the war)

went to the valley
wanting love to reign
all I saw was madness
but I would do it all again
we went down into the valley of pain
chasing a dream of love
all we found was madness
but we would do it all again
Track Name: Doomed In The Desert
sun is burning my skin
and I can't take it anymore
I need water to survive
holding on holding on
barely alive
what can I do
where should I go

the sun keeps burning my flesh
I need someone here
it's too late I fear
what can I do
where should I go
how will I survive
will I survive
the desert is not for everyone
Track Name: Alienation (stranger in me)
alien abduction may not be the answer
for a feeling of alienation
some say it happens all the time
the stranger is amongst us
can you feel the fear in the air
but when I read the papers
or watch the TV it's there for all to see
I recognize the stranger in me

the stranger in me
talks peace and harmony
but no one understands
the stranger in me

I have seen the large skulls
with big black eyes
every child can draw them
are we looking at the X-files lie ?
it all seems so dangerous when I watch TV
I can see the stranger in me
it all seems so dangerous when I watch TV
I can see the stranger in me

the stranger in me
has multi coloured skin
the stranger in me
is living without sin
the stranger in me
talks peace and harmony
but no one understands
the stranger in me

no evolution no respect
no trust no peace
no lasting effect
no communication no idea
no understanding how we got here
we evolve into the alien nation
that we all are taught to fear
Track Name: Asleep
just in that precious moment
before I fall asleep
the most meaningful lines
are in my head so deep
what are we supposed to do
lay the answers here
will we be united
will we overcome our fears

where do the angels go
when you fall asleep at night
where do your dreams flow to
when the sun shines a light

looking up to the skies
I see the different stars
are we alone in this time
the truth is somewhere far
do the men in black treat us
like our lips should be sealed
the secrets they continue to hide
will soon be revealed

where do the angels go...

the lies must be bigger than this world
the beauty must be hidden from within
if she still exists at all
I guess the truth is known
but I know deep inside
she's hiding in the light
where do we go from here
Track Name: Into The Light
scientific surgery
what does that mean
master brains are working out
what can it be
future elections
bring future ejections
but who wants to leave his home

don't travel with light 'cos you will find
time ain't on your side
when you travel so fast, you belong to the past
taking a dangerous ride
it's a time-paradox walk into the light
it's a time-paradox don't take the danger flight

to travel space they want to hold
time inside their hand
the mighty spice they can't control
the falling grains of sand
star wars talking
brings star wars walking
but who wants to leave his home

don't travel with light 'cos you will find...

into the light
faster and faster
into the light
enjoy the risk
we will go blind
looking for the worm
never look around
heading for a storm

don't travel with light 'cos you will find...
walk into the light
Track Name: The Confrontation
I found a letter in the gutter
it was addressed to me
from that devil or his mother
as it turned out to be
it was written in blood
such a terrible sign
and it was understood
there would be no denyin’

why is it you put the blame on me
blame my existence on society
I’m strugglin’ on my bare feet
but I can take no more heat
release me, release me

everywhere I go
the confrontation is near
the Houses are fighting
all the enemies here
as you may already know
my problems keep me alive
it's getting harder and harder
we have to run to survive

why is it you put the blame on me...

I found my devil in the gutter
and he was pointing at me
he wants to be in charge
a new soul to use
and I can’t deny
I'll always be the loser

why do you put the blame on me
blame my existence on society
I’m strugglin’ on my bare feet
but I can take no more heat
release me, release me
Track Name: Fear
I - Grains Of Sand

II - Fear Kills The Mind
I will not fear the unknown
past present or future
now is what I am
now is what I know
open minded not a fool
trust very few
harnessing the power within me
to be all I can be

I must not fear
for fear kills the mind
face the danger
one of a kind child
don't be blind
fear kills the mind

the test that I must pass
this level of scrutiny
how to stand the pain I feel
until I remember
fear kills the mind
but I have the power
the force to deal with this
I will survive

(solo)

thank you mother
I made it through
and I know just what to do
thank you mother
you trained me well
we will survive this hell

I must not fear...

III Treason

IV The Free men
we are the free men
we call the worm
we can survive the desert
we can survive

we are the free men
we ride the worm
we can survive the storm

we the Fremen
keepers of the water
we are unstoppable

we the Fremen
keepers of the spice
we burn our enemies

Muad'Dib will show the way
Muad'Dib will show the path
Muad'Dib is the way
Muad'Dib is the path

we the Fremen
keepers of the water
we are unstoppable

we the Fremen
keepers of the spice
we destroy our enemies

we the Fremen
keepers of the faith
we are unstoppable

we the Fremen
keepers of the spice
we burn our enemies

V Fear Kills The Mind (repeat)
I must not fear
for fear kills the mind
face the danger
one of a kind child
don't be blind
fear kills the mind
I must not fear
for fear kills the mind
face the danger
