about

A thematic adventure of melodic progressive rock, a very personal and introspective trip into the most basic of human instincts, the will to live. Ecstatic highs and desperate lows, all neatly wrapped up in a single album full of atmospheric rock. Ambitious and dynamic music varying from laid-back and melancholic atmospheres into adventurous and energetic rock. It's about contrasts, and sounds original and interesting.

Track Name: A Method...
I really shouldn't feel bad after all
So I'll keep on smiling
At least I never lied to get along
We're still fine so I hold on

When driving through the dark is all we know
Oh headlights please guide me home
But home is just a dark and empty room
Why try at all?

It seems to me that dreams are all we own
Now that we're older
I can't believe the time where has it gone
When was our moment?

Time couldn't even pause or stop or rewind
So I close my eyes and sleep
Sleep through a day or two and find
Another reason why I never knew quite where I failed

To see in front of me
Suddenly I'm blinded by the sun
Infinity laughs at me
How can I breath
I'm blinded by the sun
A million possibilities, never me
I'm blinded by the sun
Borderlines of sanity and reality
What have we become?
Track Name: ...to the Madness
March, march knowing well certain death awaits us
Onwards, onwards
The masters yell from their ivory towers
Cowards!
Blind men lead the blind men
dreaming of arrival, of asylum, of revival
Seek, seek and seek you shall
'till flesh and bones are rot and mould
Stake, stake, stake your claim
Rape your land I'll do the same
The same!
Cogs and wheels of blood we are
mechanised, baptized in fire
Sacrifice your inner self
for the greater good, for the common wealth
For greed and lust we march
We march for fear 'till death we march
The world commands us to

Crawl through this earth
'till darkness us devour
Don't leave me out

Fear of darkness
Illusion
Crawl with me

I'm lost
I'm getting colder

Grind, grind into dust
From whence thou came return thou must
Decay!
A Morbid Mistress and Father Time
molest their offspring: You and I
Self inflicted wounds of hatred
transform us into drones
Faceless censors keep us all in line
The screaming beast of eternal lies commands us to

Crawl through this earth
'till darkness us devour
Don't leave me out

Fear of darkness
Illusion
Crawl with me

I'm lost

Step forward and show yourself
Oh you who can claim to be free
of bondage and other such things
Share with us the wisdom of your ways
Or stay hidden for the rest of your days
Away, be gone, can't you read the signs?
Were you not told to question the lies
you we're taught as a child
Or do you cling to a utopian view?
If so, I should very much like to witness this delight
A sweet delusion of senses quite extraordinary
Where one might bask in the light of innocent child-like cruelty
Awake, awake! The authorities arrive
This will not do, they cry
Where is your freedom now?
Will you not fight?
Will you fall in the hands of your peers
or fall back into the cave you left at first light

Crawl through this earth
'till darkness us devour
Don't leave me out
We crawl through this earth
'till darkness us devour
Don't leave me now
I'm lost
Track Name: Time Can Stay
Lead me through to emptiness
Hear me now I take my final breath
All in all I'm quite amused
Petrified but in a happy mood

Rest assured it's still alive
Through the lives it left behind and locked inside
Though it's cold and lonely now
In a while the sun won't have a chance to hide
No more

You caught me in a hole again
Compensate the difference and descend
Lift me up I'll start again
Even though I know I'm still the same

I confess I haven't been so sincere
I've been lost and I've lived in fear
All the times that I was given a choice
No I would not hear no ones advice
Despite I knew the price

Crazily I thought there was another way
All the paths seemed to lead away
Now it's over there is nothing to say
Just leave it blank and call it a day
Despite I knew the price

A lucid dream of silent skies
is all that's needed for a beginning
A wretched lie or is it truth instead?
Reason fails to answer this
Lead me out of it or leave me in
'till the sun is dead and only dark remains

Still it's more than I understand
But I can't admit defeat 'till time is gone
Time can heal a wound or take away
Everything depends on time ticking away

Time can stay
Track Name: Lost Inside
Now the last days are upon us
All I've lost the world has won
Here I stand in the spotlight
Contemplate what I've done
Still it's more than I can believe in
And it's blinding me like the sun

As I reach for redemption
As I seek for the signs
And the more I seem to fathom
Oh the smaller I become
And it's harder now that I'm closer
And it's blinding me like the sun

I'm lost inside
Growing older and getting tired
Oh lost inside
Going over the same lines
Oh lost inside
Getting colder ready to die or not

Seems this path is getting steeper
Even though my legs are strong
Every step leaves me weaker
Every breath takes its toll
Though I'm further now that I used to be
Still it's blinding me like the sun

Release me don't leave me
All that's left will soon be gone
I'm surrounded, can't avoid it
See this thing that I've become
Still it's harder now that I'm closer
Still it's blinding me like the sun

I'm lost inside
Growing older and getting tired
Oh lost inside
Going over the same lines
Oh lost inside
Getting colder ready to die

Oh lost inside
Only coming to realise
Oh lost inside
Only me in this cage of mine
Oh lost inside
So we'll meet on the other side

Oh lost inside
Loneliness is all I find
Oh lost inside
No escape comes to my mind
Oh lost inside
Don't you follow me down I'm so lost

What's to decide?
Should I lie and say that nothing's wrong?
I'm still alive but I cry inside
Couldn't say what for
Left here to die
Who am I? A captain on the shore?
In time even life subsides opening a door
'Till then I'm still lost inside

Now I'm way past denial
Fear and rage just left me cold and tired
Tried to buy my way back home
But it all backfired
Now I'm stuck in stage five
Sinking deeper as I go along
Meet despair, it feeds off me
It takes a hold of me
While I'm still lost inside

Once gone it's lost forever
It disappears into the Eastern Sea
I'll sleep fearless
Knowing that I'll keep on breathing
Breathing out and in
And on these terms
I'll settle in
I'll stake my claim
I'll take the blame
It's not the same
But I'll keep on breathing

In time all will be forgiven
Faded out of memory
Years pass slowly
Unmercifully
Still I'm breathing
Breathing out and in
And on these terms
I settled in
I staked my claim
I took all of the blame
Though it's never been the same again
I'll keep on breathing

Keep on breathing
Track Name: Entropy
These days offer nothing for me
I'm settled in my ways
Keep wasting away,
erasing all evidence of change
'Till these days turn to silence
Close the door
Fade to insignificance
For if we tried less to resist
to preserve these days

Despite all the trying entropy increases still
Still everything seems to keep functioning
So why all the fighting, if indeed no one wins?
Since everything leads to more disorder
Entropy

This road seems to keep on winding
leading us astray
No future, no destination
Uncertainty will make this world
one day turn to violence, turn to war
until all that was before
Is divided
'till we are torn
'till we are no more

Despite all the trying entropy increases still
Still everything seems to keep functioning
So why all the fighting, if indeed no one wins?
Since everything leads to more disorder
Entropy
Track Name: A Captain on the Shore
Meet me far far away
On a dark island
How did we go astray?
Where were we taken?

To be lost in
To be caught up and found
Inside I am
Mortified and safe in isolation
Inside I am

Yes it's you who lost and left me
And it's true I'm past being lonely
Coming through from the outside
It's nothing new there's no escape route
'Till finally the curtain calls
And we're not here after all
Lay me down

Lay me down in the shade
Silence invited
Seems that we meet again
My quiet friend

So far divided
Our bodies have caged us in
Inside I am
taken hostage
Physics have me restrained
Inside I am

Even clouds fly away
Even dark shadows fade
Seek and you'll find again
Reach out and grasp it

Stay connected
Tomorrow can change us all
Inside I am
unaffected
Defiantly standing tall
Inside I am

Yes it's you who lost and left me
And it's true I'm past being lonely
Coming through from the outside
It's nothing new there's no escape route

So, finally I'm over board
A captain on the shore
Reaching for the floor
The writings on the wall
Find yourself alone
Arrive where you belong
To one and each their own
We're not here after all
