about

Dream Cannon released their first EP in late February of 2011. "Illusions" exemplifies musical growth and maturity among its elements. Shimmering keyboard and synth elements, a compelling drum presence, simple-yet catchy- melodies with pure and powerful vocal lines, give each song its own sound while still having a flow from start to finish.

Track Name: Gateway
I will search the unknown, I will find my way home

Is there a Truth?
Track Name: Became A Stranger
Your eyes tell Your pain, as I look You in Your face

You're troubled, You're fearful, You'd rather pass this cup



To see You in this place has left me so uncertain

Of Your promises, or who You really are

But how can this be, I'm watching the Dove lose its beauty

was it all a lie, was it all a lie



Is it a sin, to feel this way

as we march down this path

I'm giving up, i'll turn my back

Because it's breaking my heart

Please stand up, and be the One I thought You were

Just be strong and be the One

Who had me captivated



To see You in this place has left me so uncertain

Of Your promises, or who You really are

But how can this be, I'm watching the Dove lose its beauty

was it all a lie, was it all a lie




My love, don't be afraid, this is the way, I am the way

This world won't be the same
Track Name: Kodiac (Motions:1)
The rain it falls down, yet silence fills the air. There is hope but also fear.

I wish I knew what future is in store. Do I dare open the door?



Whatever happens, let’s never ever forget: What’s right might be a risk.



The answer’s easy, though somehow difficult. I’m torn between both.

Do I fight the fear or cower in the dark; it’s just not a simple start.



Whatever happens, let’s never ever forget: What’s right might be a risk.



Its time to make a choice. Try to move your voice. What is there to lose?


Don’t cower like the confused.
Track Name: Echoes of a Skyscraper
Here I lie, Have I fallen

confused and ashamed would you lend a hand



Because I need you today



I put myself out for your taking

bruised and broken please lend a hand



Because I need you today



"Here I am now, shaken, cold and alone. I reached out for you

and received absolutely nothing. So here is something for you

to think about. In the time I needed you the most, you were

never there. I have given up on you since you've obviously

given up on me. My bottle's all dried up now. I'll extend my arms

this last time as I aim for the ground below."



Take these words for what they're worth

Who's to blame
Track Name: Artax
We watch the buildings fall,

The Heavens pour down this is the final curtain call



The toll it takes



Its time to wake up, I'm ready to wake up

A feeling to break free

But it's just the trick of light, I became the blind

Swindled eyes now see



We bury the past and try to leave it in peace

Roses are left, but not sympathy



The toll it takes


Its time to wake up, I'm ready to wake up

A feeling to break free

But it's just the trick of light, I became the blind

Swindled eyes now see



I open my eyes to a world unseen

This world of dreams becomes real



Its time to wake up, I'm ready to wake up

A feeling to break free

But it's just the trick of light, I became the blind

Swindled eyes now see
Track Name: Mirror Image (ft. Phil Church and Jessy Ribordy)
Confronted, caught a glimpse of my reflection, asking, can I reach perfection

My finish line is right where I started, repeating this vice I swore departed



I swore it away, this little game we play

A reoccurring cycle of regret

My fight is getting weak, Im accepting my defeat

This overplayed story is on repeat



Untie me, cut away my darkness,

and find me broken and alone with all these questions

How do I find completeness

while everything inside me breaks apart


I swore it away, this little game we play

A reoccurring cycle of regret

My fight is getting weak, Im accepting my defeat

This overplayed story is on repeat



It's not too late



I swear it away, this is a new day

Im breaking the cycle of regret



It's not too late
Track Name: Clock Tower (Motions:2)
Reassuring words are left unsaid

For taking these steps there can be no promises



All time stands still, we're lost in this

Our path is unknown, but take my hand and we'll go



Intrigued by this moment, this surreal reality

When worry fades away, and silence grabs a hold of me


All time stands still, we're lost in this

Our path is unknown, but take my hand and we'll go



My words escape me, you're beautiful



All time stands still, we're lost in this

Our path is unknown, but take my hand and we'll go
