From retraction to arise
And so easily get back to life
That's your desperate will for me
So I sigh no more, still remaining silently

Burned out and depressed
I just muse around, so numb and senseless
And all your empathy
Makes me feel your love,
Still I can’t forget the past
All these scars

Why do you seek for my deepest affliction
And magnify my despair?
All that you’ll find is a soul in addiction
To hunger for enlivening air

You walk with me and you hold my hand, closely
Breathing air so pure
Trickling energy
Into a soul damned to bear misery

I close my eyes
While I feel your warmth, lovingly
Still I fail to feel
All the peace and joy
You’re trying to share with me
A life so free

All this time it echoes from afar
In all this time a distant phobia

If all these scars
Could ever mend

Awaiting Dawn Frankfurt, Germany

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.
