Track Name: Queen Ephemeria
My life like a...
like a withered petal
my betrayal
for one night, I kissed my youth goodbye
beauty must die

Though, I run against the dark
sure, I'll moan about old times
though, the clock outlives our hearts
still, I hope I shall not die

At final dusk, silvery hair becoming dust

Seasons blew me away before my mind grows old
and merciless noise of the clock took off my crown
but emptiness might be my new golden home
my last golden home...

Though, I run against the dark
sure, I'll moan about old times
though, the clock outlives our hearts
still, I hope I shall not die
Track Name: So Cold
Shedding tears on what I could be
bathed in smoky light that I even don't see
your wooded perfume as memory
it feels so cold under the city

Slaughtering fears that rotten in me
barefoot on the floor, breath is leaving me
one's lips on my neck kills your memory
it feels so cold under the city

Sweet trance on the sly
my head to the sky
silence passed me by
music haunts my mind

being confined as much as I'm free
drowned in faceless crowd I don't want to see
your cheeky gaze as memory
it feels so cold under the city

sweeping up doubts that you sowed in me
unleashed on the floor, soul is leaving me
one's lips on my neck kills your memory
it feels so cold under the city


Sweet trance on the sly
my head to the sky
silence passed me by
music haunts my mind
Track Name: Corps Astral
As though, it was leaving the foam
my being rises towards immaterial
and former blurry landscapes, become my true reality
echoes of my voice felt silent
spirit overcomes the mortal coil

Released from flesh and bones
I can drift on my own

As though, it was leaving the foam
my being rises towards immaterial

Released from flesh and bones
I can drift on my own
Track Name: Borealis
Let me enter inside your world
a frozen curtain hides your world
overhanging the tops
moon dust shall mend my heart
overhanging the tops...

The undergrowth with its diaphanous white
keeps calling
and snowy owls in their divine wisdom
still whispering
the starry dome is my ceiling at night
the blazing sun is my chimney outside
and boreal wind by my side, by my side...

overhanging the tops
moon dust shall mend my heart
overhanging the tops...
Track Name: I Wanna Be You
Seated near the window, you looked so yummy
didn't need so much time to adore you
seated near that window, without a glance at me
didn't need so much time to abhor you

As rough as the storm taking everything away
you stole my little heart, and slipped away
as fixed as the horizon
your gaze peers at the empty
it kills me...

Lips more red than the sky is blue
I wanna be you
lips more red than the sky is blue
I wanna be you

Seated near the window, you looked so yummy
didn't need so much time to adore you
seated near that window, without a glance at me
didn't need so much time to abhor you

As rough as the rain crashing down on the way
my fall healed my little heart and took everything away
as fixed as the horizon
my gaze peers at the empty
you killed me...

Blood more red than the sky is blue
I wanna be you
blood more red than the sky is blue
I wanna be you
Track Name: What I Don't See
In spite of your tears, you smile
despite your burnt wings, you fly
waking me up in the night, with your selfish embraces
offering me the sky, with learnt by heart sentences

Even though you feed me with stories
I only believe what I don't see
and even if you shout that you love me
I only believe what I don't see

Hanging from your lips, the lies
soil the wound I try to hide
walking head up, my forced smile, fools my own perception
but the bloodstain on my clothes, is breaking the illusion

Even though you feed me with stories
I only believe what I don't see
and even if you shout that you love me
I only believe what I don't see
Track Name: Beyond The Stone
The shadows on the wall
visibly turned blue
and the youth like dull gold
turns out to be so true

Among the ambient rage
you can't grasp your own language
while the cries from the wall
is resounding into you

Beyond the stone
seeing through blindfolds
beyond the zones
beyond the stone

The shadows on the wall
overlaid in blue
and the youth that grew old
turned out to be so true

Among the breathless rage
you forgot your own language
while the cries from the wall
pervaded into you

Beyond the stone
seeing through blindfolds
beyond the zones
beyond the stone
Track Name: Lovelorn
This spring day of 1990
eyes meeting and breaking the innocence
in these teen days, end floated in the air
pills in her pocket, sound like a sweet escape

Push me in the well, and I'll fall under your spell
wring my neck, and I'll swear to be your wreck
push me in the well, and I'll fall under your spell
wring my neck, and I'll swear to be your wreck

This spring day, when love turned into hate
breaths mixing, goodbye to ignorance
pills in her pocket, are the only escape

Push me in the well, and I'll fall under your spell
wring my neck, and I'll swear to be your wreck
push me in the well, and I'll fall under your spell
wring my neck, and I'll swear to be your wreck

This last day...
lovelorn 'til the end
Track Name: Break The Disease
Mess spoiled my faith
of your lunacy, I'm the witness
and your litany, feeds my sickness

I need wild...
I need wild to be my home
leaving crowd, in which I feel alone
I need wild

Fake is your pledge
of yourselves, you are the wraith
your conformity is tour weakness

I need wild...
I need wild to be my home
leaving crowd, in which I feel alone
I need wild
Track Name: L'Offrande
Oh go back to peace, love
Oh let the pain decrease, love
don't look back at me, love
don't look back at me, love

Today waves kiss the sand
so soflty like the ocean, pretended to be asleep
in a salty whisper
hiding your pearly grave, you're meeting it to the big sleep

Mermaids songs kiss the air
so nicely, like deep waters, caressing your pale dumb lips
like a faithful keeper
of your eternal rest
the ocean sealed your pale blue lips

Oh go back to peace, love
Oh let the pain decrease, love
don't look back at me, love
don't look back at me, love
