Sven B. Schreiber Basically a great album with top-notch songwriting... unfortunately bloated with annoying improvisations and other distracting noise, which wreck the wonderful musical arcs in an instant. As people sometimes say, "less would have been more"... Favorite track: A Moment To Take.

Sal Pichireddu Excellent début release! Mellotron, a good singer, brilliant musicians. Intelligent prog isn't so hard to realize. If you're as talented as these guys, that is! Highly recommended! Favorite track: So It Would Seem.

Track Name: So It Would Seem
Sirens scream the sound surrounds me
pacifies my dreams
your advice to rise above fear
beyond suffering

deep in the pipes a piercing pitch
harmful harmony
who I am is just the same as
who i’m suppossed to be

this plastic place your placid face
industrial melodies
if I could make but one request
listen to the breeze

where you seek that is where you’ll be

Seeing Buddha’s dream as an underlying theme
wading neck deep through the clamor of cascading thought
I'm seeking shade in my truths underway
In a wasted waste of elusive thought
I’m looking to put it all in line so I can put it all to rest
my story and you are my guest
still there hangs a veil obscures expression pale
staring through to catch a view
of the broken light thats vaguely seen emanating through
to add up the jigsaw and set the pieces straight
here I wait to put into context the complexion of my comprehension
this moment’s perspective

In ways opposite projections lit
you wear what you’re hiding
show your fear or show your faith
you are what you make
in your eyes witness your own truths
trace down to it’s roots
what you won’t face is to your ego’s taste
peer there far and wide
carefully faced let’s all embrace
and love to love to love
to learn what is for which I yearn
it’s great give thanks and love
Track Name: Dante
In a haze and beside yourself
take the time
in your mind for a breath

Close your eyes and let all the noise
fall away
be alone with yourself

spilled like blood on the table cloth
thoughts unfold in a time all their own
identity waiting to be found
acceptance of all acts encompassing

let your love light shine
grow in ways in which you may
and which you might
every breath brings you here and now
awaken to being
let your soul do the seeing

spilled like blood on the table cloth
thoughts unfold in a time all their own
identity waiting to be found
hidden away
crying but not making a sound
thoughts unwind in a shape all their own
acceptance of all acts encompassing

trapped inside this toxic flesh

without a doubt waiting to unfold
release
flowering beauty

once you can let it go
there’s nothing left to fear
it’s all a dream
Track Name: Sleeping Silent
Sitting beside the fire
reverie’s of desire
sing a far gone number
heard like distant thunder
we’ve been sleeping silent
in a life to triumph
can I help but to say
it all ends today

Continually dragged
dragged along by society’s swell
undulant lullaby
stultifies the senses
yet it rages the soul restless
prefixing destiny

lost now in thoughts true
that have believed love’s view
felt it alive and anew
seen it fully in bloom
when beauty is everything
yet it cannot be

how does one wake?
snap out of the spell of the swell
that rocks to sleep no matter what one can tell
among ripples of hell

somewhere inside
hidden out of sight where we are most alive

heaven is not so far away
it is where we are headed today
waiting there just like a smile
all the while
a view of love to see

continually dragged
dragged along by society’s swell
undulant lullaby
fate simple subsists
amounting exclusively
from this man made machinery

is it wrapped up tight?
in confused complexities
has it secluded out of sight
from where your love resides
just listen for the song
that is living natural
the flow of life sung
something heard not long ago

through our life’s many signs
is a real way to unwind
just listen to find
providence speaks to us all
Track Name: Cross the Deep
Awaken to eternity
overflow into the blue
forevermore throughout these
mercurial moments of now

manifestation’s molds
never vanish in vain
they will find their way innate
into routes of everyday

inside the heart of darkness
our jewel inside rests
don’t worry where it’s going
it’s part of the process

sunlight’s rays fall within my gaze
setting the world ablaze
inside the moving maze of life’s beautiful ways

to cross the deep pulling weeds planting seeds
leading spellbound, going down deep out of reach
finding the light that guides through the darkness
to hear the call dawn inside us all
Track Name: Colossal Cypress
lone upright evergreen
noble coniferous tree
organically against
antagonist
death’s eternal sleep

a soft whisper breeze
windy burst if you please
it’s only a sneeze
ancient tree of forgone days
she’s here to stay
wooded tree of sovereignty

the fingered flames hold on to what we know
feeling the colors and tones
releasing spirit from skin and bones
feeling the colors and tones
I’m losing myself, I’m lighter than air

Yearning intrinsic her passion exceeds
for the long sunlight steep
or thick fog osmosing
myriad limber limbs have no fear
reach out dendritically

the flames they may scorch blacken and torch
but your armor is thick
let them kick for they make not a knick
inside moving spirit, it’s beautiful
the rhythm of life

the fingered flames hold on to what we know
feeling the colors and tones
releasing spirit from skin and bones
feeling the colors and tones
removed from time shooting down your spine
I’m lighter than air

The hearth is not the flame
what does the soul do but release itself?
Track Name: A Moment To Take
Under the light of day is grey
searching for something to see brightly
listen for the song before its gone
life as it comes
speechless spirit sung
in the sun

Far away, find a moment to take
to undertake let arcane courage create
when in a way singular strength is at stake
illuminate
whispering sweet silent forgotten dreams
we’re winding down in one never-ending stream
thoughts that shine and beguile me
animate life’s magnetic energy
being in tune to the song you sing
it’s knowing a moment’s possibility
everything’s true religion

Pale pictures of stray individuality
lost amidst ruptured insecurity
lost at the core, more than before
this collage of the blues
fixed on secret meanings misconstrued
clinging on you can’t shake it loose
peel away to feel the light of day again
looking out on pastoral fields green
thinking whats to be
nowhere in the green will it tell whats to become of me

looking for the state of things deep in the green
searching for something to see brightly
thinking what’s to be, mystery

a brilliant light shall undermine
discrepancies of thine
are cast transparent by its shine
the source of which is yours and is mine
