The sound of rain
In the silent solitude, so finally
A thought of bliss
In times so lonely

Twisting thoughts within my head
And I’m wandering these winding paths
And while I’m craving for the truth
Of what has been
I think of you

Why did you walk away?
Now that we understand
What gave us pain
A life lost
And I wonder…

Could you feel my adoring sympathy
All the time along with me?
Could you feel my internal agony
As you made me suffer in pain?

You wouldn't respond
To my constant endeavour
My love in vain
A frozen face and I was longing for your smile
But you crucified our life

You have forsaken me
Although you know so well
What I gave for you
A life lost
And I wonder…

Fresh Progressive Metal/Rock from Germany in an exciting mixture:
Sometimes very heavy and powerful, sometimes rather calm, thoughtful and dreamy - always innovative and full of emotions, honesty and affecting melancholy.
All this embedded in a frame of progressive and virtuosic instrumental parts with lots of groove meeting catchy vocals between introverted sensibilty and extroverted aggression.
