There is something weird behind your eyes
Something I’ve never seen before
Senseless and empty for mankind
The eyes that won’t shine anymore

This isn’t that we’d call a dream
Same place, same time I’ve ever been
Red wine on the wall…
The fall shakes my chest and my soul

Please, God, look at me
I’m so terrorized
Lend me your all-mighty hand

Anything I try to do
Turns into a burning breath
Why me? Why now?
Why you don’t?

This rage will break my bloody chest
Somewhere on earth!
Does anybody feel my wrath?
Somewhere on (Earth)

There is something weird in me
Whispering, drawing tears
I think I’m gone
I can reach the light and beyond

Yeah, forced to get away
So welcome to my runaway
To my runaway

Oh my Lord, I despise thou
Will I ever reach your skies?
“All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain”

All those moments will turn in dust
Out of conscience, beyond your mind

Just behold their silent flight
Thrown to distance, out of sight

Dispossession, rape out of my wish
Unearthly sight, skyline decrease

If I could find someone out there
As me so lost and desperate

So lifetime circle… is complete

Released, it seems the net caught me in the end
The silver plankton floats among the darkest seas
And the above term has just begun, the final sacrifice
Coral of your mind still remains intact

(Life)Do you feel my wrath?
Somewhere out of this mad road?
(See)Beyond this dawn
Follow the stars, shiny shooting stars
(Be)Enjoy your role
Come close and look up your destiny
(Go)Go forth
Misplace the hate, will always consume your desires
Put down your fingers, so reaper will be there
Someday, for first time, you’ll be dead

It's a conceptual album, about the passing of a human soul through death levels and dimensions before falling again on Earth after myriads of time and it's journey to the origin of cosmos. ... more
