These are the lines for the blinded
They’re the leading way for the not simple-minded
You never learned to use your eyes
Because your virtue’s dulled with vice

And did you ever wonder why
Your life is just passing by?
It’s just because you never cared
To be someone who really dared
To cross the line without return
And command the world to burn

Now follow me, I’ll show you how
To evade the endless row
Of blinded victims of the rule
Who plunge into the bloody pool
Now follow me, I’ll show you how
To evade the endless row
You've got the chance to do it right
Stand up against their sightless pride

Don’t say a word, now hush and hear me
Come closer now but don't come get me
Leave all your memories behind
Just keep the one you think is kind

Burn the lies that hold the mask
And there’s one question you may ask
New born being without a name
You’re naked but you feel no shame
That’s the way it’s ought to be
Fly with open eyes and see

Break the bonds that chain your mind
Do not fear what you will find
As darkness breaks away from you
Sunlight warms your skin anew

Face the facts and say goodbye
To a shameful living lie
It's time now to accept the dare
Step out into the open air

Fill your lungs, breathe out, breathe in
And realize there is no sin
Your final lesson has been taught
No solution can't be bought.

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.
