All my dreams have gone to lore Got my feet back on the floor You may ask what all the chlorine’s for To wash away the grimy truth Left behind by storming youth Felt so smart, but right now, who’s the sleuth? If I’m not falling into fame I’d only have myself to blame Yet in the end it’s all the same All the pain – all in vain Say the words I long to hear Tell me I’m the one to cheer Praise me now before the end is near Our time is limited for sure I have the book here in my drawer Who’s on a pedestal and who’s a whore? If I should I fall from God with grace Will I land flat upon my face? And will there even be a trace? That I was here in this place... I’m out of my hopes I’m out of my dreams I wanna get even, but... her island screams I wanna fly high, oh so high. All is all over now – all we tried – all we tried I’m so done with you – I’m so done with you. I’m so done with you, I could cry You run away – and run away I run away – we run away ‘Cause I’m so done with you – I’m so done with you I’m so done with you, I could die You run away – and run away I run away – we run away Right on time – a lonesome chime I’m on my way – my child – I’m on my way – my child No more lies – I broke all ties It’s my way – I hide – all I say – my pride On the mountain high Beneath a clear blue sky I found a place where we could look awry And in my heart I felt That things on which I dwelt Were nothing more than pride – and eye for eye In breach of my strife I hold the door To the fight And I hear – the wind is calling With dynamite All with the urge to be fair and right – who knows? I might...

What if... 05:25
And I’m always on my own I reap the seeds that I have sown I find my way and that’s alone There’ll be no heiress to the throne But in my world I did belong My belief was very strong That a mortal soul is just plain wrong And I’ve had that feeling all along All religions say it’s true They’ll exclaim it right on cue That our view is so askew We’d change our ways if we only knew But what if – there’s nothing, but the cold ground – no more games If all roads – lead nowhere – then why am I – towing these reins And as I walking here with you I’m all but failing to construe Is there a part that will renew? Or will just emptiness ensue Or will just emptiness ensue But what if – there’s nothing, but the cold ground – no more games If all roads – lead nowhere – then why am I – towing these reins

Down 03:55
Sometimes we hide from the truth Then we settle our scores and pine for the youth of our days In so many ways I know you came from dispraise And you fought all your battles with graze and malaise – so damn strong You hammered along – how could it be wrong – you’ve been at it so long But can you feel me going down? I need a gleam – warm from the sun I’m falling deep down and around A bitter waste now – is coming undone Scattered rays of dreams that incite Meet the endless streams and beams of delight – all night through It’s not my life – but’ll just have to do I guess I’ll say what I always say: This thing will kill me before I’ll have my day – am I wrong? In the meantime – we all play along How could it be wrong – we’ve been at it so long I must behave – to get it right I must be brave – and grow into my height I must not cave – at the slightest fight How’s that for insight?

Step Up 05:58
Alone so cold And God how old It is time to fold But somehow I’m feeling so bold Come near the plate (step up step up) Inhale the bait Now, the oh so laborious wait Going to wake up my fate But I’m worn to the bone So torn and alone I wanna be free – all the time Gotta head to the sea – ‘cause I fear it’s my time that’s come Make no mistake I had the whole damn cake But in my own sad, but glorious wake There was just no time to break... It should be all about me – all the time What the hell is this ‘we’? I’m confined – and you’re blind You see whenever you’re near, I’m so bare – that I disappear It’s like I have a hole inside – that can’t be eyed – opening wide
5.
Wangari 05:05
On a ground so frail – I’m chasing my own tail – the pain will prevail It’s time to set sail – me I won’t fail – an endless betrayal I called for you – but your eyes went right through – my boneless hail Wangari-mastaperi ada Ustaneri Mehai – Mehai Wangari-mastaperi ada Ustaneri Mehai – Mehai Where were you when I was alone? Where were you when I was alone? It’s all a front – a whitewashed clever stunt – a hapless herring hunt – and it’s time to be blunt. The material world – grimy, blotched and knurled – into the den we were hurled. When we leave – the con will unweave – so bold we can’t conceive
6.
Piao 03:52
And even though my eyes were closed To all the things that would matter most I’d still do it again in a beat I just could not withstand all the heat The floodgates should have been open wide I had high hopes you’d be on my side Did not want us to spend time apart Such a malignant thing in my heart

about

Voila our sophomore album release! This time we've moved into a more progressive territory than before. The album starts with a 22-minute long medley that pays homage to legendary songs like Echoes and Lark's Tongues in Aspic. Get ready for long instrumental parts with mellotrons! However, it would be wrong to describe the music as retro. On the contrary, this is text-book post-progressive, and much more coherent than our previous effort. Sure, there’s still that vibe of indie rock, and the odd touch of 90s trip-hop, but where we would previously draw comparisons to the Beatles, Radiohead or Sparklehorse – we now think you can hear the influence of acts like King Crimson, Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree.
