To fly above the earth To be like giving birth To fly above the earth To be a womb On a clear morning To a beaming light To a beaming light To save the mind from words To stroke the spine gently To be a grain of sand To be stardust In an abyssal sky I am not afraid I am not afraid In an abyssal sky In an abyssal sky I am not afraid I am not afraid

So give me colours give me shocks to move this astral body I want to cultivate all that is possible I think I have the need to hear that I’m a good boy Please tell me so Please tell me so Right now I’m frightened I feel like I can’t go on I feel so frightened Unsatisfied and alone Let’s take a walk inside the garden of eternal beauty Let’s try to contemplate on all that’s possible Let’s figure out how to fulfill our universal duty Let’s make it so Let’s make it so Inside I’m aching I feel like I can’t go on Inside I’m breaking Into a magical song Inside I’m aching I feel like I can’t go on Inside I’m breaking Into a magical song

Miss Sadness You don’t have to go that way Lose your dark veil It is just a storm Soon it will be gone Yes, it will be gone Miss Sadness Your belly bears the pain of the world Drop these lead weights And then you’ll fly above Be like water and let go All the stories you have told Don’t you hang on to this storm ‘Cos soon it will be gone Your mind is racing It makes your body ache I feel your hunger for truth to penetrate I feel your hunger For love abundant Miss Sadness You don’t need to head that way Lighten your head And everything can change Energy remains Everything can change Soon it will be gone Soon we will be gone Soon we will be gone Soon we will be gone Soon we will be gone

You wanna be with me We’ll turn this world inside out We’ll feed on poetry Heat the soup, grind the frowns You wanna be with me We’ll turn this world upside down We’ll live in symmetry Come on let’s fantasise We shed a new kind of light It keeps us warm in spite We live in dark helpless times Come on let’s fantasise We’ll always ride with the tide Come on let’s fantasise I wanna be with you I wanna fill your empty arms I wanna be with you There’s love inside this troubled heart I know I’ll be with you I know I’ll follow through Come on let’s fantasise We shed a new kind of light It keeps us warm in spite We live in dark helpless times Come on let’s fantasise Come on let’s fantasise An endless rain of flawless rays of sun Out of the seasons Out of the haze Lost are the reasons To be afraid Out of the seasons Out of the haze An endless rain of flawless rays of sun Flawless rays of sun An endless rain of flawless rays of sun

Only good thoughts Only bright thoughts Only good thoughts For you It’s your spirit and you’re near it You can hear it calling you It’s your spirit and you’re near it You can hear it Only good thoughts Only sweet thoughts Only good thoughts Now will enter me It’s my spirit and I’m near it I can hear it calling me It’s my spirit and I’m near it I can hear it This is just a playground To live and to learn It is just a playground Surrender to sound It is just a playground It is just a playground

Watching the ball Aiding the fall And while you nurture your vote You are casting your stone False hopes these are my friend A pat on the back of self-defence Your self-defence I’m packing my horse In tears of remorse In an exceptional place My thoughts I erase False hopes these are I know A single desire to lift my soul! We are living with ghosts We are terrible hosts For a needless debate On whose prey and whose bait False hopes these are False hopes these are

Eye to eye But not quite Plastic smile Rotten heart Sharpened fangs Hungry beast Poisonous tongue Eager for the feast I wonder if I could love you I wonder if I could survive This treacherous game That you are playing Scrub the hate off my chest Hand in hand With the devil Leave no trace On muddy land No regrets No forgiving Sleep in Frost By the gates of hell I wonder if I could love you I wonder if we could survive This darkened world That you are building Empty hopes for hopeless dreams Eye to eye With the truth Stamp the paper With your vice The exit’s locked But I am dancing I am free I am in disguise

In the midst of the fog Lives a silent song And it’s casting a spell Over everyone It drips like honey through the ages Forever sweet On a ghost carousel Children carry on Mesmerised by the tune of the silent song It drips like honey through the ages Forever sweet In the haze of the dawn Lives a silent song It’s the dawning of peace Waking everyone It drips like honey through the ages Forever sweet Forever sweet

I am of the Universe I am of the Universe And it’s your soul that I long for I am of the Universe I renounce the evidence I adore your confidence And in your flame I’ll gladly burn We are of the Universe Finding words are meaningless Longing for a sweet caress We are of the Universe We are of another kind

So long For so long I’ve dampened my voice I didn’t know which road to take to find where love lives Now I look myself in the eye I don’t want to live through another lie No, no, ‘cos now I know Hear my cry See me reach these arms to touch you A child is born Love spreads like fire and it will catch you Now I look myself in the eye I don’t wanna lose this lover of mine No, no, ‘cos now I know Yet I felt unfulfilled I felt a joyless chill And imitation drills A friendly fruit I felt unfulfilled I felt a joyless chill And repetition kills A friendly fruit

about

Freedom Candlemaker is a direct translation of the Greek-Cypriot singer-songwriter Lefteris Moumtzis’ name into English. His new album ‘Beaming Light’ is the culmination of his extensive musical journey and is aiming to reach far and wide and make his music known to an international audience.

‘Beaming Light’ marks a departure from the artist’s previous output both sonically and symbolically: it is a radiant album that doesn’t carry the deep melancholy of his earlier work. Delving into uncultivated sonic areas, he finds a perfect balance between dense synth and guitar-based arrangements and his insightful song writing, within a dreamy and nostalgic scope. In ‘Beaming Light’, Lefteris is seeking to reach a harmonious connection between past and future, childhood and adulthood, earthly and divine. The main thread of the record consists of themes of spirituality, empathy and achieving peace with one’s inner being, through constant change and reinvention.

The album was recorded mainly in Athens and is produced by Alex Bolpasis, one of the brightest young producers in Greece and also long-time friend and collaborator of Lefteris. Besides Lefteris playing bass, guitar, piano and synths, the album features the musicians: Michalis Kapilidis (drums), Dimitris Hatzizisis (guitars, violins), Vassilis Vlahakos (guitars, piano), Fotis Siotas (violins), Orestis Benekas (synths) and Hristos Hatzihristou (synths). The album artwork is based on the unique photos of photographer, writer, curator and journalist Filep Motwary.

Out on limited edition LP (black/turquoise vinyl), CD and digital album in February 2019 via Inner Ear.
