I'm walking through the shades
Dressed in bountiful colors of black
In my dreams I'm alone
Breathing the air of a world that's not mine

Colliding with the vast emptiness within
I am the abyss, sucking up life
Behold the hideous mask
The foul stench of the beast

Lost within my lonely dreams I am
No path unfolds before me
And no light that leads the way for me
All alone, I run in circles, circles
To leave no trace in the grey sands of my life
Is this what I deserve?

And still I'm running with the fiend
I detest my face, bare of blood
Crawling through the dust
Scraping the ground with my filthy hands

The flesh grows cold and shaking
Silent tears keep falling into mud
I'm crying for my losses
Could I just remind what I craved too much
And so I choose a life in the dark
Surrounded by the bountiful colors of black

Locked away within my eternal jail
Peering through the cage of my mind
Screaming now in perfect agony
I see myself fading away from me
My tortured mind collapses, finally
Left with nothing but despair
And the bountiful colors of black

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.
