about

Dreamy, melancholy, surreal, ironic, this album is above all, lucid. We don't sink in bloody wounds, not plaintive cries within the walls of our house, no broken windows or broken dishes or pain lost en route because of suicide; rather a radiant consciousness oozing sounds of detached redemption. An atmosphere of unreality seems to cross all the album without, it would seem, any sorts solutions. We are facing the inner landscape of a loving post-apocalyptic world with metallic reflections. In the solitude of the artist dimension, where we enter a little 'time, conscious of a common experience as a scar itself, there is no room for sadness nor resignation. We find, however, all the beauty and the lightness of a lucid detachment, of a scar-won strength, as well as the 'irreverent and ironic treatment of himself (or his double ...)

Track Name: Whispers
I’ve lost the will to try
My soul burns out inside
I’m crawling while I cry
I smell the leaves left behind

I whisper all the time
My fear, it kills my mind
I’m asking why I cry
My thoughts, they twist deep inside

I’m craving for the truth
I’m trapped within a lie
I’m asking why I try
A failure all the time

I whisper all the time
My fear, it kills may mind
I’m asking why I cry
My thoughts, they twist deep inside
Track Name: Omid
From what it was to what it is
From a cruel past to a creepy now
From all that’s been & done to our days

Nothing changed

They were strange fruits, hanging from the trees
They were forgotten hearts & rotten meat
Now they are sentenced to death by a hanging judge

Nothing changed

A moving murderer, a noose from the sky
Gravity claims the right to happen
The weight of a sentence on a innocent corpse

Nothing changed
Track Name: The Solitude Glass
A crowd and the solitude glass
A meadow and the soft lights
Music is over, night is on

Three steps to oblivion grounded on grass,
Equinox through the solitude glass

The smell of moonlight, the shining’ so bright
A silent agreement through the solitude glass

Three steps to oblivion grounded on grass,
Equinox through the solitude glass

A far away mourning crawling under skin
Filled with scorn, emptiness worn
Track Name: The Other One
You could have been my last hope
Maybe you could have been, nothing at all
And now you’re the truth from which I hide
I’d rather stay by your side
If only I knew that I could fail again, with you

The other one, a lonely game
Within my mind
The other one, a lovely play
Within my brain

You could have been my worst dream
Maybe you could have been
Between a cup & a wreck
My heart is stronger than my thoughts
I want to tell you something you don’t wanna know …

The other one, a lovely game
Within my brain
You’re going to die & blow my mind
Without any pain

And now you’re the past that will not last, that won’t come back
I would not stay by your side …
‘cause now I know it wouldn’t be wrong to fail again, trying to stay with you …

The other one, a lonely game …
Track Name: The Same Fuckin' Shit
Now the whole stage is yours
While I will take my place
Through the gates of eternity
This is the tail of a tale I will tell you after all

You’re goin’ on playin’ the same fucking shit …

‘cause everything’s been said
Better than you & me & ever than before.

Now the whole stage is yours
And you will write your songs
About how all the world has gone
This is a take of the tale I was tellin’ before

You’re goin’ on playin’ the same fucking shit …

‘cause everything’s been said
Better than you & me & ever than before.

Ever than before …

I’m telling you, you’re so useless, but the damage is done !!!

You’re goin’ on playin’ the same fucking shit …
Track Name: Raw Suns & Grim Moons
Raw suns & grim moons
As they flow overwhelmed by thoughts
As they crawl no way if they fall

Raw suns & grim moons
Jackals & werewolves barking at night
A black spot brightens the air

They cause daze through the sad glass
They cause pain on the bad glass
And it’s dark outside, the gloomy dark you’ve ever seen before …

They stand over all and all and all and all and all …

Raw suns & grim moons
As they crawl no way if they fall
Track Name: Lost Love
I’ve lost love,
Now I only wear a velvet glove
I’ve lost love,
Many feet underground

The pale moon brightens the tomb
While I dig, she’s alive
In the deepest ground
Now she’s only skin & bones

I’ve lost love on a day like today
Her breath was deep
Her beat a drum machine
Life is a poison to swallow

We embrace the night, we lose our fight
You choke & die, I laugh & cry
One last kiss to say goodbye …
Track Name: You In Me
You’re the only one for me
Yeah, there’s no one else, my love
And our souls deep inside they are tied
You take my hand while I die

I remember our love
Born like a rising sun
And we wrote our names
On a blank page

You & Me, under a sparkling dawn
You & Me, embraced in the snow
You’re smile’s my strength, you enlighten my days
You’re the perfect half of me

I remember our love
Born like a rising sun
And we wrote our names
On a blank page

I remember our love
Born like a rising sun
And we wrote our names
On a blank page
We filled it up with our lives
And with our newborn love
You came to me like a buzz
And warmed up my cold, cold heart
Track Name: A Scar is Born
A scar is born inside my heart
It’s running blue through my cold blood
A scar is born, you told me your lies
A scar is born, while my heart dies
A scar is born, when I lay down with you

If I feel alive, please
If I feel alive, please
Just tell me why, please
Just tell me why …
