about

Hudson Arc Newcastle, Australia

Hudson Arc is the brainchild of songwriter Gareth Hudson who teams up with gifted string trio Ensemble Arc: Tadijana Ilicic (violin), Jamie Pollock (viola) & Rachel Pogson (cello). "These guys come loaded with quality old-school styling as they use classical training to make their 'deliberate pop' creations. And it works".
Arne Sjostedt, The Canberra Times

Track Name: The World At Play
Everyone’s a lens witnessing
The world through different frames
Of unique meaning

As the aperture expands
The simplest mistake is to chase what’s missing
And never see the world at play
Only one truth waits when we end this journey
We’ll never have that chance again

The silence escapes, it’s deafening
Information haze
All consuming haste
The world in every frame

The simplest mistake is to chase what’s missing
And never see the world at play
Only one truth waits when we end this journey
We’ll never have a chance again

I long to find simplicity I need
I long to find simple things
Track Name: The Motive Of Hope
Hear her frozen thoughts
Thawing on the inside
Addicted reasoning
Season dark holes lurking
Enchanted riddles chance
Breaking through her security
But wordless poetry
Fills her hearts of prisoners

Hope, is here by my side
She’ll make this journey an easier one
She’s always too kind
But nobody questions the motive of Hope.

She’s there when I call
But what is the real cost?
When her conscience lies
I’ll see where her purpose hides

Hope, is here by my side
She’ll make this journey an easier one
She’s always too kind
But nobody questions the motives of Hope.
Track Name: Leave It Buried
Warning like clouds to an empty sky
Turn a blind eye to the storm
Alarms ring on silent and hide the time
Nothing will ever unwind
Deceitful denial distorts the truth
Like poison to water supplies

The writing on the wall is fading

We steer our own course
Beyond circumstance
But who’ll make the choice with no second chance?
We cannot delay the burdens of change
To prosper today
Till it’s too late

Warning as clouds fill an empty sky
Turn a blind eye

The writing on the wall has faded

We steer our own course
And live with the dance
But who’ll make the choice with no second chance?
We cannot delay in sparing our world
Cause our will today can save the earth

Our will to change
No more delay
Our will to change
No more delay

Leave it buried forever
Track Name: Generosity
You belong in me
A piece of you I keep
I am yours and who I am is what you’ve made me
With your gift of life
Comes a constant prize
Every time I see myself inside your eyes

There’s no way for you to show more generosity

Forced deliverance
Given every chance
Forming perfect shadows for our fearing
Void coincidence
Shaped experience
Journeying through cycles disappearing

There’s no way for you to show more generosity
In nature’s way we’re paying forward generosity

Lives run parallel
In time the roles reverse
Reciprocating all we’ve been given

There’s no way for you to show more generosity
It’s nature’s way of paying forward generosity
Track Name: The Portrait Of Your Life
Stop filling up your life with chores for frozen reward
When mind possessing objects call that you’ve no need for

My father taught me
“A job worth doing’s worth doing well
The portrait of your life is what you make it"

Hunting unpredictable fuel to feel good
But monotonous addictive drones soon consume you

But my mother taught me
“A life worth living’s worth living well
The portrait of your life is what you make it"

My father taught me
“There’s no point waiting for time to tell
The portrait of your life is what you make it"
The portrait of your life
Go now create it
Track Name: Don't Let The Ego Carry Your Soul
He said, “leave it all behind”
We’re all just made of new beginnings
You don’t have to pretend you’re something else
Living like a soldier fighting against yourself

Don’t let the ego carry your soul
Blindly through the motions in full control

He said, “free it all today”
Judgement of yourself and others
Cause we’re all part of the same tidal wave
Rushing for that shoreline playing the greatest game

Don’t let the ego carry your soul
Blindly through the motions in full control
Track Name: Connect With Me
Show me reality
Connect me
Share my reality
Connect with me

Sharing secrets
Posting visions
Lives on show
Long to reach you
And connect to your real world

Show me reality
Connect with me
Share your reality
With me
Noiseless voices

Endless choices
Seek control
All points taken
In cyber wastelands
Lonely hearts grow

There’s a way out
Connect with me
There’s a way back
Just talk to me
There’s a way out
Connect with me
There’s a way back

Share my reality
Connect with me
Be my reality
Connect with me
Track Name: Depths Unknown
I wish I had a ticket
I’d send you on a first class ride
Through the hills to believing
Your faith’s only fleeting
If you claim to know the truth
Your fate has got to leave the past
Alone in potential here and now

If you had a ticket
Would you even take that chance?
Standing on the edge when solid ground beckons
I’d rather have a motive of passionate disbelief
Than go through the motions
With a lie in focus

We’re all at depths unknown
Watching the shadows grow
Why fight to free yourself to wonder?
We cling to what we know
Old faith and lies on show
Reopen up your mind to wonder

How will you find your feet?
When you’re running through the dark in line
Emotionless and vacant
Passing by each moment
The chance of really seeing
Can only come with new questions asked
With newborn courage
Uncertainty in focus
Track Name: Sunday Singer
Put a mask on
Pretty colours
Fight the real you
Put up posters
Give them what they want
Take an apple
Plant it in you
Fertilize within
Sunday Singer
Right beginner
You think you’re getting through

“We’ll have a party
Come to our party”
You just want to make your own rules with God
You fool yourself to think your view comes from above

Strong opinion based religion
That’s just what you are
Just another point debated with morals from afar
Sunday Singer, pick your fools to play your tricks on
But someday Karma wins you’ll never reach the good ones

“We’ll have a party
Come join our party”
You just want to make your own rules with God
You fool yourself to think a view comes from above
Track Name: Won't Let Go
I’m climbing a ladder to the top of a heart
And it beating along the way still keeps me hanging on
The air’s getting thinner but it heightens the rush
Like an addict who won’t give up
I’ll reach her from above

Cause I’m still winning in this game
While I know I’m in her race I won’t let go

Monopolize
She’s naming her price till she’s traded in sunlight
There’ll be no more dark skies

But I’m still winning in this game
While I know I’m in her race
So I play a wicked game of chase
While I know I’m in her race I won’t let go

Yeah I’m still winning in this game
While I know I’m in her race
So I play a wicked game of chase
Hoping for that single taste so I won’t let go
