All he can see is parody All he can hear is forgery In the golden age of promoting the empty page The remarkable man will cure it all His target in sight is all around The constant barrage of hollow sound The empty shell he wishes he knew less well The remarkable man will cure it all Forced to subsist in cactus land Pushed to the edge by soulless bands Revenge he'll wreak delivered in tunes he'll leak The remarkable man will cure it all

I used to be afflicted with an alien point of view I used to think the legends were true There never was any question, there never was any doubt I knew the mantras inside and out I'm ready to lose the battle, I'm ready to lose the war None of it seems to matter, not like it did before I don't wanna know your story, I don't wanna know the score Keep the buzz away from my door There's nothing that you can tell me I already don't wanna hear Won't be the one to boost your esteem I'm ready to lose the battle, I'm ready to lose the war None of it seems to matter, not like it did before I'm running a different direction, I'm running a different race Got to get away from this place Nobody saw me coming, no-one will see me leave I've torn the heart from outside my sleeve I'm ready to lose the battle, I'm ready to lose the war None of it seems to matter, not like it did before

A scourge of the city I spy in the sky The gale blows me to my knees The dog at my throat and the dog at my feet Never can be appeased A train on the wrong track is running downhill A pillar between the lines The ship beats the wave but the wave beats the ship everytime A solitary morning is waiting to share The dog barks throughout the day From breakfast to dinner he gnaws to the bone Companion who makes his prey Late at night fresh flies are put to my head Hindering me from sleep Dreaming of rest which I scarcely expect anytime

Lost soul looking for the way The great divide at break of day Offers everything to learn Taking nothing in return I might wander far and wide You'll always be the great divide Insulated from the night The darkest moments turn to light Two false idols merge to one Reveal a long forgotten sun History will pass you by You'll always be the great divide It's not enough to stand in awe Time to come out to the fore Nothing ever stays the same Who'll be the keeper of the flame You may not always be my guide I'll always need the great divide

New reinvention The perfect reception The hero returns again Shaking and stirring Lines of truth blurring The franchise is near the end Say you'll never die forever Promise evermore Egos are hurting Loyalty deserting Meeting its match again Say you'll never die forever Promise evermore New reinvention A natural selection The hero returns again

Fox among the flocks of Gilead Held on high by wings of chariots Covered by your shields of armoury I will tear you down I'll storm the pharaoh's palace I'll fill the poisoned chalice I'll lace the pomegranates I'll wish you no specific harm Merchants in your towers of ivory Marble pillars hang in galleries Keepers of your queens and concubines I will tear you down I'll storm the pharaoh's palace I'll fill the poisoned chalice I'll lace the pomegranates I'll wish you no specific harm Voice of sweetness, lips of honeycomb Beaming with your fairest countenance Eyes of doves in flaming coals of fire I will wear you down I'll storm the pharaoh's palace I'll fill the poisoned chalice I'll lace the pomegranates I'll wish you no specific harm

about

Australian guitarist / keyboardist / composer / vocalist Ben Craven continues on a mission to bring his music to the ears of progressive rock audiences far and wide. Progressive rock fans who might have missed Ben’s last opus, Last Chance To Hear, will be pleasantly surprised by the concise nature of his 2018 album entitled THE SINGLE EDITS.

THE SINGLE EDITS showcases Ben’s finest moments from his solo output, both rock vocals and rock instrumentals, compiled and re-imagined as single edits. A good bet for radio as Ben takes his greatest moments and edits them timewise into bite-sized chunks of sonic majesty. Although a 24-bit, 96kHz lossless download was released in late 2017, in early 2018 a special edition of THE SINGLE EDITS is available on compact disc, complete with folder artwork and multi-page booklet.

KEY POINTS:
- Clocking in at 41 minutes, the eleven track CD of THE SINGLE EDITS features a cross-section from Ben Craven’s album releases and is brimming with fascinating musical ideas.
- THE SINGLE EDITS includes several remixed, edited prog-pop tracks from Ben’s first solo album Two False Idols.
- On the track “Spy In The Sky Pt. 3” Ben enlists the help of spoken work recording artist and Star Trek legend William Shatner and YES member Billy Sherwood on a track finished in L.A.
- All the music on THE SINGLE EDITS was superbly played and written by Ben Craven. Essential for Ben’s growing fan base, THE SINGLE EDITS is the most compelling musical statement yet from prog-rock sensation Ben Craven.

- Robert Steven Silverstein
