Archetype X


Archetype x,
Why were you born,
To torment me,
To be my Denna,
Ocean-eye and fair complected,
Archetype x,
Why were you born

Easy charm,
Flies to honey,
All your streets are paved with gold

Archetype X,
Why were you born,
i want to know you,
While you were on your own,
What did you learn,
I want to know your truth

Archetype x,
Why were you born
To challenge me,
To be my teacher,
When all your beauty starts to fade,
Archetype x,
Where will you go

Your mask will fade,
The truth uncovered,
How will you look when you’ve grown old

Archetype X,
Why were you born,
I want to know you,
While you were on your own,
What did you learn,
I want to know you

Archetype X,
Why were you born,
I want to know you,
While you were on your own,
What did you learn
I want to know you

Night Moon

I’ve brought the thief to the house of the just
I’ve taught the morning to a pale artifice?
My sun’s a pestilence that’s burning at noon
Vapour in the death of the night moon

The night moon
The night moon
The night moon
The night moon

To speak the laws of prudence
To keep the wolves at bay
To hear the dog howl at the wintry door
Oh take me back to days of holy vellichor

I’ve brought the thief to the house of the just
I’ve taught the morning to a pale artifice?
My sun’s a pestilence that’s burning at noon
Vapour in the death of the night moon

The night moon
The night moon
The night moon
The night moon

Oh mental flames redeemed
Valla’s in the shadows of the leaves upon the tree
Oh mental flames redeemed
Valla’s in the shadows of the leaves upon the tree

I’ve brought the thief to the house of the just
I’ve taught the morning to a pale artifice
?My sun’s a pestilence that’s burning at noon
Vapour in the death of the night moon

I’ve brought the thief to the house of the just
I’ve taught the morning to a pale artifice?
My sun’s a pestilence that’s burning at noon
Vapour in the death of the night moon

Jordan paul is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Kingston, Ontario. Jer–music journalist at Sleeping Bag Studios–describes Paul’s sound as, "if Queen, Mimicking Birds, Radiohead, and Jeff Buckley all had a beautiful love-child.” He has been hailed as "Canada's Jeff Buckley” by record producer Chris Birkett (Led Zeppelin, Quincy Jones, Buffy Sainte-Marie). Paul regularly co-writes with Darryl James (The Strumbellas), Matt Lipscombe (Bran Van 3000, The Replacements), Amanda Mabro (Ron Sexsmith), Chris Cargnello, Matin Kerr, and many other accomplished writers and artists. His first single, ‘Archetype X,’ debuted in the Top 100 Alternative charts on iTunes–gaining massive college radio play across North America. ‘Archetype X,’ was also awarded Songstudio’s ‘Most Pitch-able Song’ and the SHINE Music Award. In early 2017, Jordan Paul was chosen to represent Canada at the Texas Songwriters Symposium in Austin, TX. Some of the television shows and films Paul’s compositions have been featured in include The CW’s ‘The Secret Circle,’ Shaw TV’s ‘When Paintings Come Alive,’ BBC Canada’s ‘Orphan Black,’ and LaJoie De Vie's short-film ‘Best Budz.’ Paul's debut studio record is slated for release in early 2019, it was recorded over the month of April with Jonathan Anderson (Said The Whale, Andy Shauf, Aidan Knight) at Protection Island in Maple Ridge, British Columbia.
