Track Name: Whispers on the Wind
Runout dreams, burning scenes
Fragments of the past
Fading soils grew into ghosts
Terrorizing me
Urge me to go for the final flight
Cannot fight - should I end the strife?
So lost is my world
When you stand on its edge

Lit my fire and desire
Igniting the lifeless, burning the night
You hunt down the stars in my soul
Beauty bright and dark
Your eyes on my heart
A moment not to go, yeah

You are my mirror
A youth’s memory
Child of the Wind
The passion among our skins
Makes me fly again
Your voice so deep within
Carries me away
Carries me away

Skies coming down, to deathbeds of lust
Rebirthing what ought to be gone
Two strays grown tired, yet full of hope
They dance recklessly in flames

Lit the fire and desire
Igniting the lifeless, burning the night
I hunt down the stars in your soul
Beauty dark and bright
My heart on your eyes
A moment not to go, yeah

You are my mirror
A youth’s memory
Child of the Wind
Come, Ecstasy, let us sing
Make us high again
We haunt the demon
Let us float away
Let us float away
Track Name: Star-Gazer
Surf the night! Ride its wild blazing oceans
Stroke the stars! The pearls in the darkness
I’m diving through the endless sky
There I find thousand stories forgotten
Lost in space and time they were dreaming the vastness
I hear their ageless songs
Within the universe

A blink of an eye can tear eternity

I’m a cosmic wanderer
In lucid dreams
I roam the galaxies
I’m an astral sleepwalker
In infinity I read
My tale of stars

Asteroids paint the blackness with red
My soul combusts, I let myself fall
Into the aeons that are yet to come
Ancient realms of planets unfold
And caravans of constellations
Feed imaginations of a future-world
My visions speak its tongue

A blink of an eye can tear eternity

I’m a cosmic wanderer
In lucid dreams
I roam the galaxies
I’m an astral sleepwalker
In infinity I read
My tale of stars

All the ancient melodies
Flow like golden streams
Into me, the years of light
Weigh like aeons on my mind
Before they’re torn with

A blink of an eye, only with a blink of an eye
Track Name: Earth-Shaker
What is this madness I see
Slaves buried deep in the machine
From the breeding plastics feed
Wretched worms called Men

Tear down
Make fall
Hope lost
Break it

Were you not my companions
Each face is shattered – to the last
The conquerors admired so
You failed to the freedom you preached
We swore to be proud
And now you’re about
To wreck our sun for the mammon’s sake -
Fuck you, traitors!
I’ll shake this world of yours
Till it breaks!

Tear down
Make fall
Hope lost
Break it

The strongest warriors of youth
Reduced to zombies – all of you
Synchronized with minds and suits
You worship this atomic beast
This savior’s a whore
Addicting you all
With poisoned promises of light -
Fuck you, traitors!
I’ll shake this world of yours
Till it breaks!

Tear down
Make fall
Hope lost
Break it

Walls down
Cries fall
Lost it
Break all

Darkness refines Icarus’ Syndrome
Track Name: How I got my Wings
The sun is all that I can see
I watch my shadow move beneath me
A deep breath of sea air
And the ocean’s call

(It follows, it’s calling, it’s coming, it’s growing
It follows, it’s calling, it’s coming, it’s growing)

The sun is all that I can see
I watch my shadow move beneath me
So bright are the shore lines
In the dawning glow

An ocean far too deep
Its darkness lingering
And phantoms screaming
For a dream to kill
Blackening in greed
Heaven seeks its prey
All horizons gone
Can I escape?

The sun is all that I can see
I watch my shadow move beneath me
Drifting aimlessly on the wind
I let my mind wander away

Wandering through the thoughts in my head
(It follows, it’s calling, it’s coming, it’s growing
It follows, it’s calling, it’s coming, it’s growing
It follows, it’s calling, it’s coming, it’s growing
It follows, it’s calling, it’s coming, it’s here)

An ocean far too deep
Its darkness lingering
And phantoms screaming
For a dream to kill
Blackening in greed
Heaven seeks its prey
All horizons gone
Can I escape?

Run, kid, run!
(Run, kid, run!)
Something’s lurking under the surface
(Run, kid, run!)
But I cannot see its face
What is roaming beneath the sun
(Run, kid, run!)
In the shadows yet to come
(Run, kid, run!)
They’re howling
(Run, kid, run!)
They’re howling

Set the sails
Man the oars
Wake the storm
Bring it on!
