Past nightmares chasing your soul!

Heated by those burning flames
Which are feed with suffering
I escape from the shrieking demons
They try to snatch my mind away

Gasping for breath, I run away
I mock the pursuit of my death
It’s illusory, but his claws
Feel so real that makes me shudder

Blaze a trail in time
Hide to this threat, reach out for the light
Tear down barriers
And cross every dimensional gate

Once I get rid of the horror
And cries from the past have ceased
I get into a new perception
A new universal truth

Time consists on thousands particles
So different from each other
Can see no end for this number
Just colours, shapes and amazement

Men, they have always feared the things that dwell inside
The suffocating dark
I’m about to reveal the secrets that remain
In those obscure affairs

Defy this mystic challenge
And leave your tread in every world you reach
Leave your fears behind
Because you control every step you make

When your black eyes are too blind to see
And the gravity forces you to grovel
Clench your fists in anger, get rise to your feet
And rage against the oppressive force
Make universe tremble!

For you there is no redemption
Consequence of your deceptions
Won’t escape from this damnation
Free way to mind domination

So grit your teeth in pain
Your efforts are in vain
Don’t go against the grain
Your loss is our gain!


Defy this mystic challenge
And make a stand against the cosmic will
Leave your fears behind
Trust your decisions, they will take you away

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
