A wonderful song landed in Stars Uncharted’s inbox. John Bassett is a singer/songwriter from the UK who writes and produces the albums of prog/rock act ‘Kingbathmat’. His debut acoustic solo album ‘Unearth’ will be released at the end of the month and judging by the first single it will be real ear candy. Check out Stay Away From The Dark, a truly exceptional song featuring a great psychedelic Pink Floydish vibe:

Stay Away From The Dark

Music Video

Lyrics

Play to the gallery
Talentless, sanctuary
You and all your friends, with money you pretend

Sponsor, d.o.a.
Beauty you, will betray
You, your chosen crowd, outsiders not allowed

I see you, your face, from very far
Crying out from the back of the car
As they drive you to another place
Now don’t lose your spark
Stay away from the dark

Play to the gallery
Talentless, sanctuary
You and all your friends, with money you pretend

With your certificate, you qualify to shovel dirt
Wallow deep in your cave
You’re digging your own grave

I see you, your face, from very far
Crying out from the back of the car
As they drive you to another place
Now don’t lose your spark
Stay away from the dark

With your certificate, you qualify to shovel dirt
Wallow deep in your cave
You’re digging your own grave

Sponsor, d.o.a.
Beauty you, will betray
You, your chosen crowd, outsiders not allowed

I see you, your face, from very far
Crying out from the back of the car
As they drive you to another place
Now don’t lose your spark
Stay away from the dark
