Track Name: IMAGINATION IS REBELLION
we only react
we only react when something is broken
we only think
we only think when we‘ve been accused

there was a
time we started moving
we were awake and
we took the place

like the first stone
and started rolling
we knew the way
and we went there with hope

you should
see how much
how much you left for us
you left for us to fix
before you judge on us

now we‘re walking
and we‘re talking
through the gate.
Track Name: HIDE AND SEEK
I try to run and hide
from her eyes
but she will follow me
everywhere I go

deep inside of her I hide
all my fears, but
when she reaches me
she won’t know

tell her
I’m not gonna tell her
never gonna tell her.
Track Name: NEITHER
you try
to change
you never gonna do
we all try to lose

you never gonna chose
you try to change
your way
or your chair you were given birth
we all try to run
but we never do
we all try to win
but we can not achieve

chasing her
close behind
just like a shadow
without sun

you imitate
parts of her
neither you
neither her

you will never change.
Track Name: REQUIEM
far away I hear
a drum playing loud as your heart
I know it’s death who’s playing
he calls you home
but you call yourself freedom
but you are the most unfree man
I have ever seen in my life
tell me that you still have some hope
don’t let it be your time to die

quantus tremor est futurus
quando iudex est venturus
cuncta stricte discussurus.
Track Name: IN DISILLUSION WE TRUST
we all lit the fire
collected the wood
we looked through the mirror
and danced like a fool

we all took a knife
and cut us a mask
we all lit the fire
and danced like a fool

but no one could hold you
and we tried to hold you

we all took a colour
to paint the stars
we closed all the windows
and thought with our hearts

we all chose a light
to follow through the night
we all took a colour
and thought with our hearts

you might tell me that we gonna stay through it as one
but nightmares capture me alone
I realize, it wasn’t a mask that I cut
it was my face
it was my skin
it was my flesh
it was my blood.
Track Name: REACHING FOR THE WIND
everyday the sun is strolling into the night
northern winds for months are blowing still find no quiet
all the rivers flow and flow but the sea is never pleased

the musing is exhausting, no one’s coming close
none of our senses is hoping to achieve the aim
our desires are buried behind untouchable walls

as we look at the tree of gnowsis we see growing harm
all the grief of the world is carried by the fruit of lore
laughter is so meaningless and useless is all joy

the one who remembers all the bygone days
is lying here and weaping but the future never pays
present is trickling off, but the past has its trace

my obit is what I long for, not the day of birth
a mourning house is my comfort as against a place of joy
it’s better to keep all your empty words
than to bring me no advice

we’re all fading
we’re all blind
only reaching for the wind.
Track Name: NORTHERN FOG, MAYBE LIGHTS (REVONTULET)
there is a melody
in my heart
and it drags me home
there is a memory
in my mind
and it keeps me from the cold

there is a sound of getting called
there is a way of growing old

and if I needed the sunlight
I wouldn’t be here
as long as I’m standing upright
I’m able to hear

the dark, the mistery in itself
of a daylong night
the ice, the northern light, the fog around
including my mind

they bring the words to count the days
they give the force to walk and rise.
Track Name: FOOTSTEPS
how many times did I wait for his steps
how many nights did I sleep to forget

how many days I got up two hours of sleep
how many nights did I spent talking to his fears

frightened
listing
hearing
worried

so often
so lonely
tore in two pieces
once loving
once hating
thanks mr. ethanol.
Track Name: IT'S NOT IMPORTANT TO SWIM (BUT TO DIVE AND OPEN YOUR EYES.)
we’re all standing by the shore
where the stream only seems to grow
some are hiding their head
some their smile and some their heart

the stream loops our knees
tears our bonds apart
lets be excited
and open-minded and take it as it comes

we’re all hanging on a cliff
were the stones slowly start to drift
some are cutting their roots
some disappear and some don’t move.

spume is entering by force
our own small universe
let’s be excited
and open-minded and take it as it comes

it’s not important to swim
but to dive and open your eyes

and the source of the stream
is the same
as of the blood that flows through our veins
and the voice of the water
flows into
the song that vibes in our brains

and the water is arising.
