Artist's Description

Darkness and light, grime and the sublime, the world we live in is an intersection of extremes. As we go about our lives, they collide around us.

And then my girlfriend mentioned the song “Distant Sun” … both of us thinking the name of the song was “When Worlds Collide”! There are seven worlds in the song, and not two. But the seven are derived from the great friction of light and dark in my mind anyway.

Song lyrics: “Distant Sun” by Crowded House.

Tell me all the things you would change
I don’t pretend to know what you want
when you come around and spin my top
time and again, time and again
No fire where I lit my spark
I am not afraid of the dark
Where your words devour my heart
and put me to shame, put me to shame

When your seven worlds collide
whenever I’m by your side
the dust from a distant sun
will shower over everyone

Still so young to travel so far
old enough to know who you are
wise enough to carry the scars
without any blame, there’s no one to blame

It’s easy to forget what you learned
waiting for the thrill to return
feeling your desire burn
and drawn to the flame

the dust from a distant sun
will shower over everyone

And I’m lying on the table
washed out in a flood
like a Christian fearing vengeance from above
I don’t pretend to know what you want
but I offer love

Seven worlds will collide
whenever I’m by your side
the dust from a distant sun
will shower over everyone
