about

Cloud Cover Sky is the brainchild of one Andrew McCallister - musician, singer, and song writer of more than 20 years. Recently, his inspiration comes from his living abroad in Thailand. The debut album, Listen To Them Now, reflects his personal experiences and emotions from being in a foreign culture and learning about a deprived people. From songs like Listen and Sawatdee, love and despiration are carired through the songs' active melodies and warming lyrics. Although not containing a difinitive theme, the album presents certain problems that are present in today's societies. Times challenges the listener to give time to these issues along with I Am Found (Traveler) presenting the idea that God is all around us and we need not venture too far to find him. The album closes with Sawatdee, a song that expresses the love the Thai people have for their country, followed by Phleng Sansoen Phra Barami (Royal Anthem), the Thai royal anthem that expresses love for the king, who provides so much for his citizens, and the response this love enables the citizens to have.

Track Name: I Am Lost
I am lost between the sky and the earth
I am lost between the heart and the birth
I have seen you in my dreams
I have seen you...

I have died
I have died inside unaware
I have seen you in my dreams
I have seen you...
Track Name: Listen
You can hear their cries in the wind.
You can see their face and pale skin.
Listen to them now.

You can feel the hatred in your bones.
With one word, you shout in that tone.

Listen to them now, they cry for help.
With one voice, you can know your doubt.

The sentiment will never change...
You can turn your head but it's all the same...
Track Name: Far Away
One of these days I'll set my sails high
And sail into that blue sea
One of these days I'll set my wings wide
And fly into the cool breeze.

One thing I know

One of these days I'll get my game on
And run into that open field
One of these days I'll put my face on
And fight them with my eyes peeled

One thing I know there's nothing to show
All lost all gone waiting for dawn

I'll be far away, far from here
I'll be long gone, long from fears
Track Name: Time
Open up your mind to what is to come
Open up your eyes to what has been done
And you will know this tragedy is here

Open up this life and welcome the day
Look past your strife and give it all away
And there will be no tragedy

Time, time, you're all out of time
You're fine, fine, but don't have the time
To give, give, give it away
This time, time, you're all out of time this time

Open up your heart and let the change come in
Back to the start; where to begin?
You will see the comedy this time

You're all out of time and nothing else will change
You're all out of time, it can never be the same
Open up your heart and let the change come in
Let the change come in
Track Name: They Sing
Another day goes by
And I don't question why
Now I face my fears
The light escapes these tears

One by one you give me something
One by one you speak
Everyone will cure their being
One by one they sing

Another year goes by
Another question in my life
And now the cards are played
If and where and when you stayed

And now my life goes by
And I don't question why
Track Name: I Am Found (Traveler)
I have loved this
Journey of bliss
I have traveled
This world unraveled
To find you

I have seen the
Unloved, the unjust
I have been there
The ancient unaware
To find you

You are here
You are here
Track Name: Robot Building
An image of a golden tree hangs there
And beside it on a canopy, a blue square
When the dust begins to be to much to bear
You can clean it with your designee and old hardware

There's a statue of a boy in blue and dark eyes
With his fingers outstretched to you in surmise
Oh how I wish I could change, undo
All the things that I misconstrue and compromise

But you take, you take it away.
But you take, you take me away.

Oh how I wish that I could see
How I wish that I could say those things to you
How I wish that you could be
How I wish that you could see the love I've found

There's a book about you and me in red ink
It's covered in dust and he looks pink
You'd feel much more relieved to not sink
But it's better to perfectly rethink
Track Name: Your Name Here
Someone stop me
There's been an emergency.
I am melting
With the thought of conspiracy

All those lives, all those tears...

He was a poor boy
Given conformity.
She was in love
Inspired by you and me.

All those lies, all those fears...
All those lies, all those tears...

Hallelujah we're just fine
We're just fine together.
All these years we've been just fine
Been just fine toigether.

Can you pass the salt?
It's not my fault.
These passing years alone.
Can you pass the salt?
It's not your fault.
We'll be together again.

Someone stop me
I'm walking through the debris.
So I am losing
My mind to this entropy.
Track Name: Derelict
The heavens open over head and
you just speak to raise the dead.
A million souls to conquer fear but
Scaring words to kill me dear.

I'm alive, alive.

The rain falls down to meat the earth and
You can feel the savior's worth.
A thousand times, a thousand ways, my
Heart rejoices with one gaze.

My soul longs for you.
Track Name: Love Again
Here we are, a brand new start
Draped against the black night sky

No telling time or wasting dimes
Just you and me until we die

I will be here, I will be here

Tell me how much you love me
How much you need me
How much you care
I will give my heart to
Give my life to
Give it all

One more year with you dear
Circumstance could change it all

Hold my hand, tell me again
Why love prevails without a fall

Let this heart love again
Track Name: Sawatdee
There's a place where history runs deep
Everywhere are people you can see
Their smiles run a thousand miles long
Everywhere you can hear their song

Sawatdee, sawatdee
Their love for Thailand runs deep

Write your name in the ocean sand
Far and wide the sunshine on this land
You can go a million places here
Their song of love that you will surely hear

You are the God of this great land
Show your abundance on Thailand

Sawatdee, sawatdee
Your love for Thailand runs deep
