Track Name: Nostalgia For The Creator
There he goes through the valley of death
but he fears no evil
for he is the evil now
and he's learnt
only the fallen need to rise
the ecstasy of death as he calls out for life and justice

the ecstasy of death
as he calls out for life and justice
the answer is my faith
that lies between light and darkness

in the land of the deepest shadows
and brief history of time
he remembers it all
calm and happiness
everlasting peace he seeks

but he'd lost his mind
before his body
in an unfinished loop, abused by the night
by himself - and he never knew

these unholy thoughts on these holy grounds
his night in Gethsemane
stigma of the paradise
nailed to his palms
nailed to his palms

but he remembers
all the comrades
the red mountain

but he remembers
all the comrades
the red mountain
all the good that was wiped out

the ecstasy of death
as he calls out for life and justice
the answer is my faith
that lies between light and darkness
Track Name: Space Dementia
Encircled by transcendence of space
the opaque being my only solace
would you believe that we'd miss it
the very ground upon
which we were born

but we can't see if it's worth it
worth what we are about to become

speak the word, behold the void, enjoy your sorrow
never forget our children are
the men of new era

the truth is truth until the moment it meets lies
so tell me now why do you fear?
that you'd deny your own freedom

when absorbing one another
try not to suffocate
there are not many options
where to relocate

transmission error
key parts missing
data sent
the sun – pitch black

now we can see if it's worth it
worth what we are about to become

instructions unclear
information incomplete
and far from conforming
to logical patterns
Track Name: Space Charmer
I am the one
the one who is
the closest to the sun
so far from all
from all that I have done
this azure abyss is made of memories
violent waves creates familiar shapes

the ocean unfurled beneath reflecting all I feel
Kaisei, kaisei – sanmei
'want it or not, you will obey

I gain height
want to see the end
I don't care 'bout my life
it is already spent
I see no higher court
there is no one outwith
I see no God up here
nor on the ground beneath
I jump off from my ship
right into the abyss
will I find my solace
in memories it keeps?

The ocean flays my skin
it absorbs me from within
trancending DNA
I'm slowly passing away...
I'm gathering the konwledge of hundreds of millions years
I hear all without my ears
my body transforms to the celestial form
then I implode to be reborn as a supernova

I am the one
the closest to the sun
I will devour it!
Track Name: Lubricated Future
I met him in the times of my greatest fears
In the shadows I begged him to protect what was mine
Whether he's living or else
after all
he used to be a human in his time

so he took me
on a ride on his wings
to a place where all the nightmares dwell
where we praise the death to overcome the pain
where every living's solution easily fell

the stars shone on our path, showing no mercy
painful wounds
bleaky hearts
souls torn apart

all was clear
violent and cruel
as we passed

his laughter merged with my cry
as I watched hope dying last

„I am infinite and I will endure
the only path to heaven is through hell.
There are no heroes, only survivors,
you have to fight for your future.“

So many questions with no answers
no strings attached
„life isn't a negotiation“ he said
„no reason for heaven to care,
nothing can be deserved.
There are mistakes to be fixed
and I am the vanguard of your destruction“

Track Name: Magnets & Miracles
You've told me so many times
we cannot survive
I tried to convince you this is not real
We needed to strive

And failed
I knew
the reaper
awaited us

when the first bombs went on
we were already gone
they'd said we were the chosen ones
but we
wasted our chance to live

so we moved past the living
into the night
both forever and none
with hearts set on last fight

you've told me so many times
we cannot survive
I tried to convince you this is not real
we needed to strive

that day was not the beggining of anything
neither the end
the world was dying from here to eternity

behind the pile of corpses it is difficult to see
there is no guilt in action, only responsibility,
behind the pile of corspes the big picture can't be seen
we fought for many, 'wanted to win for even more
so said we all
so said we all

now silence embraces us
inviting us to endless darkness
in an absolute calmness
end of the line
end of the line

oh the man, loaded gun
fading sun
end of the line
end of the line
Track Name: Rakuen
On and on we go
travelling through time and space
waiting for a sign

we can only hope
despite all what we've seen so far
we still can tell wrong from right

we've seen too much of life
years not kind enough
and there's no one left to tell
and there's no one who'd listen

when you were alive
don't want to remember
holding the picture,
wanting to show it to the world

the black daylight of space
covering all we've known
stay beside me with eyes closed
I'll whisper „here I am“

and the loneliness fades
and it all fades

nothing feels the same anymore
in brightest day, in blackest night
not even the pain

still we're waiting patiently
with dying breath
searching for the light

we've seen too much of life
years not kind enough
and there's no one left to tell
and there's no one who'd listen

when you were alive
don't want to remember
holding the picture,
wanting to show it to the world

the black daylight of space
covering all we've known
stay beside me with eyes closed
I'll whisper „here I am“

and the loneliness fades
and it all fades

yet we hear nothing but the rain...
