Track Name: The Faceless And The Shore
The faceless caught up with you inside
He scratched the blue from the sky
He takes what you feel but you don’t mind
Falling became what was flying high
You wouldn’t dare to move a bit
Numb aggression fills your mind with dust
The tied up pieces that just don’t fit
Are desperately trying to adjust

I feel the heavy water
Rushing over my head
Dreaming of the shore
I always seem to forget

The night you wake up the stars on your mind
With every darkening cloud gone you will find
All of your wildest dreams coming alive
And giving you strength to move on and shine

The faceless swallowed the air to breathe
Seems to be an easy end
All of your memories took your sleep
Insomnia has become your friend
Of all the things you had to trust
This mindless dream of an old road back
You are just detached from life itself
The road back could lie just up ahead

I feel the heavy water
Rushing over my head
Dreaming of the shore
I always seem to forget

The night you wake up the stars on your mind
With every darkening cloud gone you will find
All of your wildest dreams coming alive
And giving you strength to move on and shine
Track Name: Aether - A Lunar Year
I’m here for no reason
For a blink of the core
Forever in the winds
Sleeping in their songs
This was the last time
I saw the sketches the old way
I can’t forget the
Dreams inside the cell

A picture of a drowning girl
She seems so familiar
She creates my trees
And their light seems to lift me up
And as the emptiness is gently
Falling inside the shadows
It carries me
Down to heaven haunting me up to hell

Millennia flow like young waters
Cold and clear, deep and wide
It sings a song of forsaken times
Remembers a wish lost in the night
Waves bow over the shore
A last moment of the day gone
The sky is flowing behind my eyes
The nebula changes shape

A bridge over the ocean
Breaking before the horizon ends
A burning lily set in stone
Yet dancing before my paralyzed self
The one who should’ve been dead
Is sitting near the coast
Slate cuts his skin as his
Tears fall to the ground

The blinding voice above me
Leaves me with bloodshot eyes
Erasing all my fears
Night vision arrives
Waving between the nothing
And what my heart’s calling for
I can’t find ways to
Not waste the night

This is you standing there
Calling for rain
Knocking on doors that don’t
Lead anywhere
There’s nothing to say and
Nothing to explain
You are a phantom in
Your own mind

Oh, she smiled and she laughed
For Hours
Looking through windows that
Lie of somewhere
He smiled and said: “time would
Be ours”
I didn’t know they where
One of a kind

This hall is my home
I’ve never known another place outside
I’ve always been alone
But the call for something else never arrived
And as I walk along
These floors and see all the works
Time scratched into the walls
I finally feel home
Track Name: Ashes Decay
New day, new start
Same dream, same heart
Crawling forward
Still not giving in
„You’d be so much
Greater than what
You love“ heard it
Every single day

Listening to numb mouths
Won’t bring any kind of
Redemption for my soul
To lighten up
„Things can only go south,
Why don’t you take the road?“
I just can’t understand
Your train of thought

You will hear my voice
From out of the sun
Shining over everyone
I have made my choice
Now let it begin
With killing the doubt within

Now the day has come I’m observing
Skies of limitless dreams below me
Decomposing walls are illuminating
Every single step behind me
I have witnessed the shifting of this
Insignificant lives’ foundations
The unrevealed mysteries melt my mind
But redefine all connections
Gifted with the understanding of infinity
Nothing became so easy to see – Fate chose me

Gravity has released me from my
Home once so save
New state of mind, I declare to all,
We’re much less than slaves

We live in fear of failing
Ourselves on the path we chose
Some are retreating in pain
Some are only making foes
We all won’t ever forget
Who helped us to take our steps
The greatest stage is long set
For everyone moving on

Face the day you’re reborn
You grow only stronger
Every time they try to
Poison your thoughts
The future already
Has determined what you
Are doing today with
Your tomorrow

They will watch you rise
Your shell burned away
Death itself has gone astray
We’ve all come to life
The ashes decay
We shall die some other day
Track Name: Pax
He just fell asleep
Fell from grace
A nightmare of waking up
In a hospital room
Take these pills
Wash your face
Give your blood
Rebuild yourself

There is that
Misguided
Mind of yours
Boy, you’re weak
The consciousness
Flows in little shining drops
Down the walls
Behind his eyes

Locked up in this world
You call my home
Don’t burn me in your heaven
Just leave me alone

Don’t you see the beauty
Of this place?
My heart feels so lost inside these
Ever-repeating dreams
I just want to stay here
See my wonderland below
I’m sick of you coming
To make me go
Track Name: The Colossal Empire
One eye wide open
Sleep is illusion
Dreams grow slowly colder
Aims forge paths to all heights
For far too long they have stopped me
One eye blind to opening chasms

All that you said
Would not hold for
Long you will build
Up in my name
One eye open
One way to go

From the hopeless he has come
Blindly trusting on his course
To where all his dreams ignite
He won’t hear this dying voice
Sees his bonfire of hope
Blinded by a shining light
Way too brave to leave it out
Way too afraid to change sights
Climbing on ivory stairs
Rushing with feverish haste
Pyrite dust shall fill your lungs
If you’re going back too late

Shattered hopes did
Arch you up into
Devastating states
Of addicting possession
Flying higher
Growing stronger
Won’t all these
Riches satisfy

The walls of your pride
Are ever raising
Borders of your greed
Are ever expanding
Godly heights greet you
As the tower you’re raising
Builds up stone by stone
And the thin air’s charming you

Tunnel view on
Coal and dust we
Forge forever
Keep on breathing
Dirty air, earn
The ultimate
We must, in his
Name we must
Bring what he
Wishes into being
Your rewards
Will pay off all wounds

Your illusions
Will set your fall
Do you think that
They will still stand
Behind you when
They are waking up?

Have you seen
The hate in their bloodshot eyes
Their hearts
Will come to strength when
Open eyes see all the things that
You avoided – they will realize
Step up to you, start the pressure
After all now we’ll be coming back home

From below their
Wrath shall find you
Hail to all those who will rise
Reassembling all their pride
Those who stay and stand their ground
Taking the forsaken’s crown
Those who will end terror‘s reign
Now you harvest what you’ve sown

The walls of your pride
Were ever raising
Borders of your greed
Were ever expanding
The Sun god falls tonight
Their bloody desire
Takes down after all
Your colossal empire

Killing was your sacred sin
Breathing under Rhodos grin
Living this live you’ve caused their
Hands to rise Damocles sword
Track Name: Holy Water
You drank it, grey water
Drown yourself, nothing to save here
Enter this panopticon that‘s
Almost burned down
Go on try to fetch the ashes
To put this lie together
You drank it
Liquid narcism pumping trough every
Cell of your new shell
There is no return

Caution, this holy
Stream‘s dirty water
Haven‘t I told you yet no one survives
How long do you?
Caution, they‘re telling
Lies to pull you under
Haven‘t I told you yet no one survives
How long do you?

Enter the arena, dust and ashes left here
Are you lost? No one‘s here to hear your prayers
They will torture your one precious gift
Go on drink it, but there‘s no knowledge hidden
You won‘t find it, there is no help
A search in the darkness, just follow this path
Blind by command

The red veil will bury you soon
With waving sirens and a silver
Shining net
Haven‘t I told you yet?
They will come for you.
Haven‘t I told you yet?
There’s no way back

Caution, this holy
Stream‘s dirty water
Haven‘t I told you yet no one survives
How long do you?
Caution, they‘re telling
Lies to pull you under
Haven‘t I told you yet no one survives
How long do you?

Haven‘t I told you? – Haven‘t I?
Track Name: A Question Never Heard
Should I fear my mind?
Should I listen to myself?
Will I fall and die?
Nobody will remember me

I am leaving behind what‘s left
Of doubts in these dreams
Surrender myself to the deep ocean‘s tides
And search for an answer where it began

Keep on walking down this road
Pass the sanctuaries
And the white walls caging my sight right now
Keep on walking down this road to free my eyes

Leave behind the
Clouds, the dust that
Made up your soul
From the outside
Fly away with
Me and dear believe
There is a
Voice that nobody has heard yet

I am leaving behind what‘s left
Of doubts in these dreams
Surrender myself to the deep ocean‘s tides
And search for an answer where it began

What if I was always wrong?
Should I fear my mind?
Will I fall and die?
Nobody will remember me

Tonight I dreamed
About your eyes, about your tears
Listen to my voice
Lead me back to where I began.
Far behind the ends
Of the earth, of the earth
The seven seas
The universes‘ black
There is no place for pain
In a day never born
No thought is left
My mind is going down

What if I was always wrong?
Should I fear my mind?

I am leaving behind what‘s left
Of doubts in these dreams
Surrender myself to the deep ocean‘s tides
And search for an answer where it began
