Lyrics

The clouds up in the sky are several shades of grey
I need to find the words you wanted me to say
And even now the land is dark and overcast
I'm dreaming of a brighter future

Does it seem to you, I always take this tone
Should I check for rain again? Are we all alone?
Does it seem to you, I'm lost and starry eyed
Should I keep on waiting here, looking for a bluer sky
Looking for a bluer sky
Looking for a bluer sky

Song Production Information

DanceDanceRevolution SuperNOVA2

Fracus

'Shades Of Grey' is supposed to be a very positive track, the lyrics and chord progression are supposed to be quite 'empowering' for the listener.
Donna has such a deep emotion in her voice and we wanted to create a track that contains as much of that uplifting 'happy hardcore' vibe as possible, whilst keeping the nature of the music itself and the production very much on a 21st century tip.
The piano is different to the usual hyper-fast patterns usually employed in music of this style, we wanted to show how musical hardcore can be without losing that 'ravey' edge and danceable lead line.

DanceDanceRevolution X

The harmony of trance-synths and vocals makes this song irresistible. This track has a deep evolving rhythm, and its piano break-down grabs the listener's heart as its tension propels them forward. Truly a work of art, there is no doubt that it will get everyone moving on the dance floor.
