about

'Trying to reach out' is the fifth chapter of 'a never ending tale' by half past sun.

With this new 4 song episode, this online album moves into its second volume.

'Attitude, money and so called fun' sets the scene: a decade older but not wiser. And 'So many faces' one can not forget. 'Fall' comes to a haunting realization. Himalaya, a desolate place, where all turns white to the eye.

about

half past sun Gent

“It is a swirling, kaleidoscopic mix of psychedelia, indie rock and electronica with a naggingly insistent edge that burrows in through your ears and then settles in your brain with no intention of leaving anytime soon.” - The Mad Mackeral

half past sun brings melancholic indie songs with a delicate electronic touch, when the hard and flat colours of the day shimmer and return to their soft glow.

Track Name: Attitude, money & so called fun
Here’s your fishing rod
Again …
You’re 28 years old now
And feeling insane

It’s all about being someone
Attitude, money, so called fun

2nd on the left or 3rd on the right
Which one are you going to take
To redirect your life

These days hardly move
Like a train full of sleep
That catches up on you
And all the things you keep

As time moves over
And trees get older
And heads get sober
Some things never go away
Track Name: So many faces
I've been to many places
circling around
I've been too many places
flying outbound

but what about your
red dress
blue eyes
black hair
I can not forget

I've seen so many faces
waiting to be found
so many pretty faces
leaving me astounded

but what about your
red dress
blue eyes
black hair
I can not forget

I've tried many ways
to find a place
I've walked many a mile
but never found my pace

but what about your
red dress
blue eyes
black hair
I can not forget

looking for a home
tired of being alone
Track Name: Fall
There's always glass between reality and me
nothing seems real to me
Looking at the world like at a tv screen
there's nothing I can reach - nothing I can reach -

You never know when you never fall
and on - it's going on
you never know when you never fall

Trying to escape - ending up into a fog
maybe it's better that way
you see nothing - nothing sees you
the happiest state to be in

for 29 years

and it's going on
You never know when you never fall
and on - it's going on
you never know when you never fall

Living in a bubble
trying to reach out


you'll never know
you'll never know
you'll never know
you'll never know
you never know when you never fall
Track Name: Himalaya
Your summit has done it
I'm digging a hole
To keep me from harm

Himalaya Baby
Always maybe
Driving me crazy

Himalaya Honey
Ain't if funny
Keeping the distance


Lost in the snow
Lost in the flow
Slowly getting numb

Did you think of me?
Do you even know me?
Explorer n° 3, too small to see

Himalaya Baby
Always maybe
Driving me ape-shit-crazy

Himalaya Honey
Ain't if funny
Keeping the distance

Need oxygen, not nicotine
Need attention, to the extreme

On this slope I'll probably die
In this valley I'll forever lie

Himalaya Honey
Ain't if funny
Keeping the distance
