Track Name: Isolate the sun
Let me
Leave me
I prefer to be on my own

Negate
Deny
All the smiles
the gentlest touch

Let me
Leave me
Up high
Where i choose to hide

Negate
Deny
The pathetic way
the foreign sight

Let me
Leave me
feel, live
and cry

Staring into the sun,
let the cornea burn
I embrace the fire,
welcome the ash
Incinerate my soul,
wither my mind
Push me down,
that I can rise again

Isolate the sun
Join the fires' dance
Celebrating Life and Death
The source, the outfall
The cycles' equinox


Absorb the gift of life,
I drift away
Let the noise fade,
ease my mind
Feel the mothers kiss,
I am home
Give me the strength
to rise again

Isolate the sun
Join the fires' dance
Celebrating Life and Death
The source, the outfall
The cycles' equinox
Track Name: Vernal equinox
Scared and barren, bitten by frost
Focused on survival, onward day by day
Weak and sore, the source in icy rest
The spheres lighten up, reveal a sign of hope 

Beyond the storm lies the soothing calm
Upon the clouds the source breaks free
The ice melts, liberating the senses
Gentlest touch, the summit of life

Absorb, 
Heal, 
Rise, 
Bloom

Heavy by dew, the emptiness begins to crumble
Shy shades of green reaching out for the sky
In reliance to the cycle, hope is unbroken
The solar wheel rebuilds what it once destroyed

In the equinox of spring the children play
Eternal sign renewal in the mothers arms

Beyond the storm lies the soothing calm
Upon the clouds the source breaks free
The ice melts, liberating the senses
Gentlest touch , the summit of life
Track Name: Lights (transition I)
Fragile Sparks, beyond sunlight
Tectonic Evolution, embraced within
Bound by Gaia´s rules, bloom by the fire
earthbound, entropy, harmony

Sparks ignite, static eruption
flickering metamorphosis, blinding transformation
stone driven to the sky, emancipation of the child
The glass scepter in their hands

Bloodstreams, cut through stone
cold suns glow, never ending day
The stigma of control, anthroposphere
Dynamic equilibrium, Atlas burden

Saturation exceeded, glass bursts to shards
Return to the mothers womb, crumbling embrace
On their knees, gazing upon the ruins
Sweet tears of relief
Nurture the childish smile
Track Name: Aphotic (transition II)
Aphotic, life opposed
Aphotic, obscure depth

Playful flares fade
falling into the void
the swarms' instinct cracks
in Darwins liquid dream

The music of waves
but a faint memory
as all senses decay
pressurized and numb

Brennende Lungen schreien nach Luft
Augen sehnen sich zu sehen

As the downfall of humanity reached the point of no return,
it was like diving into ice cold water, an ocean of uncertainty.
No one realizes that they have been in free fall for a long long time.
When the sun finally grew weaker day by day, the ignorance shattered.
As the light vanished, the days were getting colder, they had to face their final transition. 

Falling - into the maelstrom
Floating - within the antisphere
Dwelling - in the sunless aeon
Decaying-  transition Omega

Aphotic, life opposed
Aphotic, obscure depth

In the absence of light
all shapes are lost
we are all the same
defined by human guilt

As feeble bodies crumble
in feverish clarity
we finally realize 
our vermin nature
