T. Henry Michta Hello I saw you last night a Jannus Live and my family and I loved your music. I bought the 2 CDs Atomic Eyes and Thunderheart. I then bought murder and dark drive digitally. I know I didn't buy the Atomic Eyes on Bandcamp but is there a way to give me the album for free (since I purchased it once already)? Or do I need to repurchase the Album?

Dianna Slater The pop hooks and melancholy undertones of the debut album, “Dark Drive,” by The Rain Within (Andy Dean) is a fascinating exploration of modular vocals, dark wave, synth wave, synth pop, and upbeat catchy pop resonant of the iconic 80s. Well worth a listen. “Dark Drive,” by The Rain Within will leave you wanting more.

Definitely an Artist to Watch!

Track Name: Yours Today, Mine Today
If you should cry, cry on my shoulder, dear
If you must sleep lie with me
Morning will come, the dawn of another day
Lifetimes will pass in your dreams

Wide awake
Staring far off into outer space
Hold me now before I drift away
Into that darkness, love
I'm yours today, you're mine today

If you have doubts drown them beneath your tears
Silence your cries, step into the sun
Morning will come, the dawn of another day
And you are my one in every way
Track Name: Murder
Blood on the walls, blood in your hair
Deep red footprints everywhere
Swept in like a storm of knives and claimed our lives
The dust will settle, the dead shall rise

It's a crime
When will they come? What will they find?
Souls lost in time
With how we lived, and how we died

Silent this house where stillness resides
Signs of a struggle, signs of our lives
Held on til it bled me dry and claimed my life
Nothing left here, nothing alive

Murder me, put me into the ground
Murder me, lay me down, lay me down...
Track Name: Dark Drive
We drive into the night
Toward a dark unknown
Headlights, though bright they shine
I cannot find the road
Strange ties and bloodshot eyes
Just let it flow, just let it flow
That's just the way that it goes
That's the way it goes

Drive all night, don't ever quit
Find the edge of the world
And crash into it
No place to be, no destiny
Nothing but dark roads ahead of me

Long drive, nowhere to go
We can't outrun the cold
So turn up the radio
And let the world unfold
Strange times to lose our minds
Just let it flow, just let it flow
That's just the way that it goes
That's the way it goes

You weren't there for me
Track Name: Exile
And I have been let go
Released and exiled
Beneath a stranger sky
No one to know
They never cared
They never cared at all

When every pixel has decayed
We're left with memories
Until nothing else remains
But electricity

They are not what they seem
Lies through false smiles
But now I truly see
Their hollow insides
Track Name: Soul In Me
Your shadow's in control
A darkened room behind you pulls you back
There is no key for this door
More lost than found
You stumble to the floor

Please let these eyes search your heart
And find the light gone dark
Repair what's come apart
Just search my heart with your eyes
Find a spark inside
And never say goodbye

Take shelter from the rain
Remove yourself from this enduring pain
Wrap your soul in me
And watch storm-clouds crash into the sea
Track Name: Innocent
Dim silver light raining from her eyes
Casting shadows darker than this lullaby
Here, angels sing
Angels dream of a time when we were innocent

Doubt carved a tiny hole inside my spine
Just wide enough to drown this hope of mine
I will ever sing and I will dream
Of a time when we were innocent

Realize that this is just a drop of time
In the oceans of eternity
No time for tears
Dry your eyes and hold me near
And step into uncertainty

Something lost and nothing found
I moved the earth to build this killing ground
I hope you sing and that you dream
Of a time when we were innocent
Track Name: Trust
Love, let us find a way
Make black and white from grey
See through the blinding haze
Love, in the neon glow
Step inside my soul
Let the darkness go

And I can admit when I've been wrong
I know I have
But I am searching for a truth
That's meant to last

Trust, find us in distress
Like orphans seeking shelter
The weary seeking rest
Love, no more promises
And not one shrouded word
Let your fears be heard
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
Close your eyes if you're tired
Let the silence settle in
Nothing can hurt you in your dreams tonight
You're safe from the rain, safe from the wind
Feels as though we've lived a lifetime
Feels we've many more to go
For we are one

White light shining through the black of night
I'll be here when you wake
Tomorrow comes with the rising of the sun
There's no need to be afraid

And the years will pass by
Moments stamped upon our hearts
The moon is rising through a clouded sky
May it never tear us apart
Track Name: Far, Far Away
From a distance find the shore
Knowing I will see no more
They can't know what's in your heart
That lonely concrete room
Where there's only space for one

Far, far away
Let the darkness decay
When it all falls down put your feet onto the ground
You're so far, far away

The broken parts I could not fix
Shards of pain in bags of tricks
But they only see the skin
A smile that swallows rain
You drink the sky to hide your shame
Track Name: Eclipse
Don't ever say
That you were something bright, something better
Don't ever say that your light was always on
I know who you are
You remove the stars leaving empty darkness

Like we weren't there
Only shadows still remain
Eclipsed by the stars
Darkness cast upon our hearts

Don't ever say
That you were the only one who ever hurt
Don't ever say that you wanted me to try
I know who you are
I see through the skin to the hollow inside
