Agent K(ahunasan) thumbnail
Agent K(ahunasan) Scotland's Altered Sky finally deliver on the promise hinted at on their earlier releases. Hiring a world class producer yields the sonic assault the band was lacking previously.
Beefed up guitars, multi-layered Female Vocals, soaring melodies & staccato drumming herald "Without Wonderland's" arrival.
"This War is Mine, Apple Tree, Bury It All" just build upon one another. If you are a fan of female vocals, alt rock and some punk-pop rhythms this is a Homerun!
Worth the price of admission...... Favorite track: Bury It All.

Track Name: This War Is Mine
I'm out of time
There's like a vulture
Sitting on my head until it all blows over
Get the hell away from me I'm not too dead
I like to think
He never means it
Welcome to the race no betting on another
Cause losings more than bruising the insides of my mind

I like to think that I'm in charge
I like to think it's who we are
But you don't know
I'll give you one more chance to run
You know life has just begun
And I'm taking home the win

Whoa and I'll be singing
This war is mine
This war is mine
I'll hold on every time
And I'll be singing
This war is mine
This war is mine oh no

Let's roll the dice
And hit this heaven
Let this be a lesson there's a winning streak in you
Fame flying high
Somehow I know why
Forever I'll be playing like the bigger person
In finding reflection in the mirror

I like to think that I'm in charge
I like to think it's who we are
But you don't know
I'll give you one more chance to run
You know life has just begun... no

Whoa and I'll be singing
This war is mine
This war is mine
I'll hold on every time
And I'll be singing
This war is mine
This war is mine... oh no

And I'll fold
It in time
It's a game
We all know
Liquid luck
And I'll give you more

Whoa and I'll be singing
This war is mine
This war is mine
I'll hold on every time
This war is mine
Give what you get
Cause I've got what I need
Give me the wings to fly
Track Name: Stupid In The Dark
What would you believe
If there was shadow without light
Another puzzle you can't hide
I'll lock it up I'll close it tight
I feel a little stupid in the dark
I feel a little stupid in the dark

I think we need some time to see
But not to draw a line
Forget the stories and the lies
It's true it's true we share the same sky
I feel a little stupid in the dark
I feel a little stupid in the dark

We all live in the world
Hold me cause I'm on your side
Give what you are
Only cause you know best
So put your hands up
Show me what you got
Cause I don't really know why
You're holding back
I feel so alive
In the world

Know your battles know your game
It's all part of the plan
Cause where would Hook be without Pan
Or Alice without Wonderland
I feel a little stupid in the dark
We all feel a little stupid in the dark

We all live in the world
Hold me cause I'm on your side
Give what you are
Only cause you know best
So put your hands up
Show me what you got
Cause I don't really know why
You're holding back
I feel so alive

And you don't even need to bring the party
We're not getting old (oh no)
Listen it's all about the company
We keep inside a light that needs to shine
I'll give it go (oh no)
It's like I've fallen from the sky
And I feel so alive ah

We all live in the world
Hold me cause I'm on your side
Give what you are
Only cause you know best
So put your hands up
Show me what you got
Cause I don't really know why
You're holding back cause we all

Live in the world
Hold me cause I'm on your side
Give what you are
Only cause you know best
So put your hands up
Show me what you got
Cause I don't really know why
You're holding back
I feel so alive
Oh oh I live in the world
I know you know
We live in the world
Oh oh I live in the world
I know you know
We live in the world

I know I live in the world
You know we live in the world
I know we live in the world
But I...
Track Name: Apple Tree
Yesterday you gave your heart away but not to me
(I waited)
I'm sitting cold filling the shadow of the apple tree
(I wanted it)

But everything that you said
And all those bites I've taken
Still I can't forget
How you are not mine
We will not be

Cause it's over now
Yeah you're stuck together now
And my broken branches never reached you
They clouded my desire to keep you
Over now she's your problem now
At first bite so sweet sour underneath
It's not gonna stop him doing this again
Doing this again

If love was what you wanted then you didn't even need to ask
(My sovereign)
Was she another challenge a new calculated task
(I'll never know)

And all those days I've spent
The things you left unmentioned
Still I can't forget
How you are not mine
We will not be

Cause it's over now
Yeah you're stuck together now
And my broken branches never reached you
They clouded my desire to keep you
Over now she's your problem now
At first bite so sweet sour underneath
It's not gonna stop him doing this again
Doing this again

There's no time
For you to make things right
These memories they don't grow
And we can only scaffold the past
So stay exactly where you belong
These memories they don't change
And I'm left with this feeling forever

As we sat below the branch of the apple tree
Closer than before but not enough for us to be
Yeah cause when the sun caught your eyes
And projected through that smile
I knew you'd given your heart away but not to me this time

Cause it's over now
Yeah you're stuck together now
And my broken branches never reached you
They clouded my desire to keep you
Over now she's your problem now
I never wanted this to end
Don't wait for me
I won't be hanging on
Track Name: Bury It All
You say all the strangest things to me
And all your life you've been walking down this street

Step it out of time
Kick it up a little bit faster
Life is in your eyes
And I know I know why

Please stop fighting your time is biding
And I know it never ends
I know we will be friends
All your dirt behind believe me tonight
We’ll make it in the end
I know we will be alone

Give me strength I’ve been to hell and back but I love
What you do to me

We didn’t need to die
I think that we could run back bury it all
Give it one more try tonight

Please stop fighting your time is biding
And I know it never ends
I know we will be friends
All your dirt behind believe me tonight
We’ll make it in the end
I know we will be friends

Underground
I don’t blame you no one wants to take it down
They’re dead sure
Inside
I’m six feet down
But giving up was nothing I was gonna do
I’ll dig and dig and dig and dig
Until you meet me here

So please stop fighting
Fighting tonight
All your dirt behind believe me
But I survived
I’ll give it one more

Please stop fighting your time is biding
And I know it never ends
I know we will be friends
All your dirt behind believe me
But I survived
I’ll give it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
Track Name: Live For It
Hear me out
We're unbreakable
But I'll wake up
To your screaming

If this is drowning
Then take my hand it's watertight
Cause baby I'm not losing
Not drowning in a sea that we've survived

Gimme time gimmie time cause we're looking fine
We're just so underestimated oh underestimated

Take this life
And live for it
We let it go
After we've slept
Cause we won't stop
Until we die
We'll keep on breathing

You said to me
Sickness and health til death do us part
So tell me where you're standing now

And tell me why tell me why did you look inside
Cause you face the worst until you stop and live why don't we all just
Live together in faith, whatever say it's not on my time

Take this life
And live for it
We let it go
After we've slept
Cause we won't stop
Until we die
We'll keep on breathing... no

I'll wait but I'll never know how much
For all the lives we leave behind
And I will stay like you always did so take this life
For all the lives we choose to hide

Take this life
And live for it
We let it go
After we've slept
Cause we won't stop
Until we die
So keep on keep on breathing

Take this life
Track Name: Livewire
Give me what I need
Everybody's gonna drop it to the beat
You know it's your time
Let's call up everyone
Stop and hit the lights and show them how it's done
You know it's your little time

1 I'm the reason
2 I'm believing
3 I'm deceiving but I'm not that polite
4 it's what I want from you
5 it's what I need from you you know I'm not innocent

Livewire
Kill the void you're suffocating
Eyes don't lie
Lose it all before it's over
Livewire
Giving up was not an option
Burn the bridge the bricks you built tonight
It's just your life
It's just your life

Give me what you've got
All the things you thought you knew about yourself are gone
(they've gone)
They're gone
(you're gone)

Cause we know best and were the wolves that bite
And this time don't leave us hungry

You know that I'm the reason

Livewire
Kill the void you're suffocating
Eyes don't lie
Lose it all before it's over
Livewire
Giving up was not an option
Burn the bridge the bricks you built tonight

Stand tall
Attention
A thorn in my side
Forget
Decide
A thorn in my side
Stand tall
Attention
A thorn in my side
Forget
Decide
A thorn in my side

Livewire
Kill the void you're suffocating
Eyes don't lie
Lose it all before it's over
Livewire
Giving up was not an option
Burn the bridge the bricks you built tonight
It's just your life life life life

Burn the bridge the bricks you've built tonight
Track Name: Songbird
Bones will grow
But they can break
And my ears reflect the sound
When there's a time
To turn a page
I'm gonna scribble it away

The words are in my mouth
I've waited for so long
I've waited for someone to tear this out
You'll never see the day
Songbird

But if you could see me now
You know I'd never leave you
I will make you proud
Cause you know I believe you'll
Fly with me and the stars will fade
Now I can sing for you

When you bloom
You'll steal the sky
It doesn't matter if the colour is a pastel shade
Cause when you walk
It's a runway smile
Light up light up

You were here all along
Forgive me I'm the one to turn it around
I'm running to the end

But if you could see me now
You know I'd never leave you
I will make you proud
Cause you know I believe you'll
Fly with me and the stars will fade
Now I can sing

If only you would wait
Then I'll believe in me
Songbird songbird songbird songbird

Never fade away
You know I'll never leave you
I will make you proud

But if you could see me now
You know I'd never leave you
I will make you proud
Cause you know I believe you'll
Fly with me and the stars will fade
Now I can sing for you

Songbird
Track Name: Imagine Adventure
I'm starting to believe
That I don't have a choice
Living in a world where
I don't have a voice
I'll build up my defence
Let me be the one to save you
Running from a world undecided and cold
I will never know

I won't be going
I won't be going alone
Imagine adventure
Imagine a story untold
I won't go this time

The world can be your toy
But lower your defence
You're weightless
Maybe there's a chance you can still save yourself
Don't you understand
You're the one that makes your future
Listen to the child
He is calling your name

I won't be going
I won't be going alone
Imagine adventure
Imagine a story untold
I won't go this time

Give me time
But I'm the worst to decide
Show me how
I can escape back to the clouds

I won't be going
I won't be going alone
I'm taking the reason
I'm taking the reason and we will grow
I won't be going
I won't be going alone
I'm taking the reason
I'm taking the reason to grow
Just let me stay
Let me stay
Let me stay
Let me stay
Track Name: Waves
Would you understand this life
If you had the time to try?
Could this be a sign to fight off this feeling?

You'll be the one to decide
When your heart is beating
All you need is believing
In whatever you wanna decide
Now’s your time

It’s a long road home
But the lights are on
And im running,
It’s you forever and always
I'm still running, running

It’s a long road home
But the lights are on
And im running, running,
It’s you forever and always
I'm still running, running

Be another fool to say
That I would miss another day
Cross my heart I hope to die
Before I've fallen down
We'll get sick some of the way
But that’s what we bleed for
We’ll never give it up no
Surrender another day for always

It’s a long road home
But the lights are on
And I'm running, running,
It’s you forever and always
I'm still running, running

We’ll stay
But we’ll make it somehow
We’ll make it today
You wait
Cause you know that there's time
And we’re not too late

And the waves in the rain,
I'm running home
Will crash the rocks like a runaway train
And theres a light on my face
I'll make a road to the place
I'm running home
I'll catch a falling star woah

And the waves in the rain,
I'm running home
Will crash the rocks like a runaway train
And theres a light on my face
I'll make a road to the place
I'm running home
I'll catch a falling star

Whoa

It’s a long road home
But the lights are on
And I'm running, running,
It’s you forever and always
I'm still running, running woah

And the waves in the rain,
Will crash the rocks like a runaway train
I'll make a road to the place
I'll catch a falling star

I'm running home
Track Name: White Witch
They say there's some kind of monster
But I don't think that it's under the bed
You keep holding on
You think I'm some kind of freak
But I remember we used to laugh every time
You once said these monsters will sleep in your heart

I will never be on my own
It's haunting me because I'm alone
Through the door is another you
But it's the devil
It's the devil devil inside you
The devil devil inside you

Sometimes it takes us so far from home
But does it happen the same way twice
Oh you're holding on

And if it means you destroy yourself
Well you won't need to run any more
You just need to
Always believe in you
Always believe in you

I will never be on my own
It's haunting me because I'm alone
Through the door is another you
But it's the devil
It's the devil devil inside you
The devil devil inside you

The one the one the one

How dark could this empty room get?
I'm prepared to fight
You will always feel it somewhere
Feel the fire
I can be the one

I will never be on my own
It's haunting me because I'm alone
Through the door is another you
But it's the devil
It's the devil devil inside you
The devil devil inside you

But I but I can be the one
