Arrival 04:41
The Moon keeps me awake all night. He feeds his madness to me. Dreams far too dark to sleep in peace, I'd rather keep Mr Moon company. He screams, he feels, his light - it speaks! No man can hear his cries, except me. And he looks upon planet Earth, with hope for a change. And yet, selfishly I look at my own life, with hope for a change. With hope for a change. Ever since I arrived I can hear his cries in the night. Ever since I arrived I can feel his light upon my skin. Ever since I arrived I can sense his loneliness. Ever since I arrived I can see the love he has for me. And since that day I arrived, I have yearned for some peace. His madness, the dreams, his constant need for company - It's all far too much for me. If only he would let me go back to sleep. I want to go back home, go back home. Still, I know my place, know my place. And so I'm left with the Moon and his madness. And I give in to his madness.

Hidden Light 04:39
See the light in the dark. Bring the light to the dark. Be the light in the dark. Without the night, you can't see the light. Without your light, we can't see. Find your light in the dark. See your light in the dark. Bring your light to the dark. Be our light in the dark. Without the night, you can't see the light. Without your light, we can't see. Find the light in the dark, whatever comes your way. See the light in the dark, whatever comes your way. Bring the light to the dark, whatever comes your way. Be the light in the dark, whatever comes your way. We are all alone - together! Can I take your hand? I'll show you, there's one way to go - it's forward! There's no time to waste! Move forward! Reveal your hidden light.

All the rules so divine. With icons so defined. Yet I feel so differently. Like I'm bound, caged, I'm far away in time. And the world may go on To build walls, agreed upon. You may like what you see Yet I need to break away, be free. No place for me, no place to be My love - to live and die - my love, How come I feel it's not good enough? And perhaps the day may come Where we all will feel as one. No more need to feel differently Like a fire we'll be racing Through the night. To the top the sun will rise Blinding those within disguise You may like what you see, Gone are all icons for you and me.

Solar Waves 04:47
Don't you think that we could find, The truth that will cease all the liars? Don't you think that we could find, The love that will cure all the haters? We will carry on to find the truth, for all to see. We will carry on to search for love, we all can share. Don't you think that we could find, The way that will lead away from sadness? Don't you think that we could find, The light that will guide us through the darkness? Could it be that we could change, Before our time on Earth has run out? Could it be that we could change, For our own good, before the burn-out? We will carry on to find new ways, it's not too late! We will carry on to search for light, to guide us all. Until we go into the waves, the Solar Waves.

Long time ago, I could still feel the joy and the warmth. Now I don't know where it's all gone. Is it all wrapped inside a field of ice? I used to feel something else, Before the winters came that froze the child within myself. Have I - have I failed - given in? Have I - have I seen it pass me by? Am I - am I somebody else? Am I - am I somebody else? Or just another hollow ice tree? Long time ago, I could still feel the cheer and the peace. Now I don't know where it's all gone. Is it all trapped inside that field of ice? I used to feel something else, Before the winters came that froze the child within myself. Have I - have I failed - given in? Have I - have I seen it pass me by? Am I - am I somebody else? Am I - am I somebody else? Or just another hollow ice tree?

Don't give up, don't look back, When time stands still In a world of smoke and fog. Don't give up, don't look back, When minds are closed In a world of smoke and fog. Start the clock again, with an open mind. I can see the way, straight ahead of me. Straight ahead of me, straight ahead of me. Don't give up, don't look back, When the birds don't fly In a world of smoke and fog. I'll set them free, be their beacon in flight. I can see the way, straight ahead of me. Straight ahead of me, straight ahead of me. Don't give up, don't look back, When the Gods are asleep. In a world of smoke and fog. Dare I call their names, dare I wake them up? I can see the way, straight ahead of me. Straight ahead of me, straight ahead of me.

Too many years have passed, Nothing will change unless we begin To live the dream of a life at last. Now is the time to start from within. Until the darkness finally gives in. The shadows washed away by the tide. The world may even turn upside down, From all the love just left lying around. And while I know I'm left on my own, I keep on waiting for help to arrive. And I send all of my tears up to the stars. I want a thousand stars to be my guide. I want a thousand stars right at my side. A thousand stars to weep - unless, They guide me through this loneliness. Too many years have passed, Nothing will change unless we begin, To find our way back to the path, Leading away from all fears within. Until the sun returns to shine on. Her light to capture those who feel sorry. Spreading out fast to change our world view. That's when the dream of that life will come true. And while I know I'm left on my own. I keep on waiting for help to arrive. And I send all of my tears up to the stars. I want a thousand stars to be my guide. I want a thousand stars right at my side. A thousand stars to weep - unless, They guide me through this loneliness.

War Cry 05:04
They had walked through the Southern lands. Not a care in the world. Yet they searched for a better land. “And what barriers may come: Never mind the fighting. Never mind it all.” They had soon reached the Northern lands. Spreading out like wild fire. Still they wanted their brother’s land. “And what barriers may come: Never mind the fighting. Never mind it all.” They were drawn to the Western lands. Sailing over the ocean. Their new home for the brave and free. “And what barriers may come: Never mind the fighting. Never mind it all.” Now they look to the Eastern lands. With concerns for the world. They intend to upgrade their lands. “And what barriers may come: Never mind the fighting. Never mind it all.”

Von allein durch diese Welt, allein, Ganz allein durch diese Welt, allein, Durch diese Welt, allein, ich gehe. Ich gehe. Von irgendwo weht ein Wind. Er trägt deine Stimme. Und ich folge ihr über's Meer. Über Berg und Tal. Durch Wälder und Wüsten. Durch Zeit und Raum. Ich folge ihr, ich folge ihr. Ich folge ihr bis in den Tod.

Departure 04:22
Forevermore we can walk through the sands of time, Though we'll never find our way to the shore. Forevermore we can look up to the skies, in awe, Though we'll never see the light of the Sun. Forevermore I can look into your eyes, with hope, Though I'll never see the point in this, my love. And today we cease to evolve. And today I found out, that you've been to that shore, Over the ocean, far away. And today I found out, that you've seen the light of the Sun, my love.

about

At one point I began singing words to some of my older instrumental tracks, so I wrote lyrics and re-recorded a couple of them, as well as writing a bunch of new songs.

The album itself has 10 tracks, but on bandcamp includes 5 extra tracks.

Total running time: 67 minutes
