about

A Whisper in White Noise is the solo music venture of Cory Newman, an amateur songwriter and explorer of emotional landscapes.

Cory spent his youth and formative years growing up amid the forests of northern Minnesota. It was here he developed an affinity for the subtle beauties of the world–the whispering of wind through the leaves of trees, the morning sun on dew-dropped blades of lush green grass, and all the other countless wonders of the natural world.

However, at age nine, his world of curiosity and wonder was shattered. His parents divorced, and, within months his father was dead of suicide.

Music became a lamp amid the unfolding darkness. It was through music Cory learned to process the grief and cyclic depression born of the loss of a loved one, and, in time, music would be the vessel through which he'd rediscover the explorative wonder of his youth.

Cory currently lives among the wilds of Wyoming. These songs are the current manifestion of his journey of self-discovery and exploration

Track Name: Fragile Animal
Fallen from the nest
Slipped away from the rest
With a body that's broken
And wings that won't lift me

Reborn in a storm
Amidst lightning bolts and fire
Red sky burning overhead,
Sounds of a forest breaking

A fragile bird in the undergrowth
New eyes set to wander, and make of it the most
Hidden 'mongst the cockroaches and mold
Beneath the darkness and the cold

When the smoke clears
I am what i've always been
Track Name: Stranger in the Light
i've got this strange feeling
that things are not what they seem
i've got this strange feeling
that though i feel i hate you, in truth i love you most

you were standing in my shadow
i was standing in your light

i've got this strange feeling
that you are not who i thought
i've got this strange feeling
that our hearts are of the same lonely madness of the stars

you were standing in my shadow
i was standing in your light
Track Name: Mushy Moth
You flutter about in openness;
So far away.
I need you close to me.
I don't want to be alone.
I'm so hungry...

I watched you dancing in the light.
Your wings glistening in the air.
Shadows all around.
Come closer.
I need you.

My fangs are made of love.
My eyes were made for you (all eight of them),
Only for you.
One touch of my web and you'll see
You were meant for me.
Track Name: A Shadow Cast upon the Corpse of Time
cacooned in the spider's web of memory
to suffer through its visions of hunger and death inflicted onto prey unwitting
teased by the pulsing lights beyond the veil of form–
a chord of wonder sung from graveless silence

the wilting objects;
the subjects bestowed them
all victims to the tide that turns them;
all blameless yet laying blame to each the other

i can't resist the pain laying claim to me
it matters not who broke my heart
what matters is it's broken
and from it risen is the heated light and grace by which i meet you
Track Name: The Bed You Lay upon
I will hold you,
Even if you're weeping.
I will hold you,
Even when you're sleeping.

I am the bed you lay upon.
I blanket you, without judgment.
I know you without knowing anything.
You are here for me;
I am here for you.

I will hold you,
Even when you're crying.
I will hold you,
Even when you're dying.

I am the bed you lay upon.
I blanket you, without judgment.
I know you without knowing anything.
You are here for me;
I am here for you.
Track Name: Last Lights Dim
like the wilted petals upon the stone that marks your passing
like the whispered wind that once sent chills upon your spine
i am not afraid
much like the moon and all its craters
much like the entire world and all its broken things
much like the snow born of winter's cold
then given to the summer's heat
to trace a path toward the sea
like the way you traced your path to me
with the love that moves everything
to you i reached
like a flowered branch toward the sun
and i'm still reaching though you're gone
i am not afraid
much like the moon and all its craters
much like the entire world and all its broken things
much like the snow born of winter's cold
then given to the summer's heat
to trace a path toward the sea
like the love that still is keeping us connected
i am not afraid
Track Name: The Man Who Fell from Nothing
I fell asleep with birdseed in my hand,
When I woke my hand was bloody; the birdseed all but gone.

I went to dinner with whisky on my mind.
When I woke my pants were muddy; 'didn't know what I had done.

Mystery trumps history in every instance of the game.
Just ask the bang that birthed this place what it thought before it came.
Mystery trumps history in every instance of the game.
Just ask the man that fell from nothing.

I woke to find I had no mind yet I was fine.
I woke to find the world I'd known was fading fast yet I was not.

I went to dinner with whisky on my mind.
When I woke my pants were muddy; 'didn't know what I had done.

Mystery trumps history in every instance of the game.
Just ask the man that fell from nothing then landed in the same.
Just ask the man that fell from nothing.
Track Name: Man Alive
I am Paul Bunyan.
My head is in the clouds.

Axe in hand,
Whirling like a tornado,
I tear the trees to shreds.
Nevermind the animals.

I am Paul Bunyan,
The tallest man alive

I am Paul Bunyan.
The forest falls before me.

Axe in hand,
Whirling like a tornado,
I tear the trees to shreds.
Nevermind the animals.

I am Paul Bunyan,
The tallest man alive.

Mountains crumble under my heel;
The sun lay at my fingertips.
But I once was young and small.
And I once knew a girl my size that I could kiss.
Track Name: Just an Onion
I'm an onion.
Peel away the layers,
Crying as you do.

I'm an onion.
Warm me in the water,
Stir me till I'm soft.

Hold me in your hands.
Put me in your mouth.
Taste the labor of your love.
Fear me not, I'm just an onion.

I'm an onion.
Warm me in the water,
Stir me till I'm soft.

Hold me in your hands.
Put me in your mouth.
Taste the labor of your love.
Fear me not, I'm just an onion.
Track Name: Ocean and Aurora
I saw aurora arise in your eyes.
Sun,
I said,
Please take me from this place.

Heart-torn,
Adrift,
And water-worn
You showed me grace.

My body was water,
Writhing through wind and tide.
My heart was heavy as the sea,
'Til you shined the day on me.

I am vapor in your eye.
Afloat in sky and blue,
I rise.
Track Name: That Which does Not Howl
I was the void that sipped the tide of form
I drank the living maze–'accepted a lie to find a stranger's praise
A veil hewn of hateful tongues tasted my eyes
The ghosts of the unreal began to haunt the visions of what I feel

Time is the segregation of awareness
If I could decline its poison I'd find the place of bliss
Instead I submit myself to every whim and urge presented
Weaving the tapestry of suffering and tears

Behind the turning worlds
Behind every object poised in fight for survival
I am something simple
Beneath the howled-at moons
I am something deeper
Beneath the poet's swoons
I am something cheaper
I am something free
