about

The album follows the story of a blind man who tries to bring peace to the dead, traveling every day from a remote village to a suicide forest in order to bring some tranquility to the spirits that died there. Once the kindness of the soul makes its way into a higher realm, all the negative aspects that remained in the forest conjure up the beast. The blind man tries to warn the village of their impending doom, while singing his songs of hope and sorrow.

Track Name: Key To The Kingdom
The key to the kingdom
Is a chord in the rite
A song for the artless
For the dark to turn white

In the dissonant soul
In the strange and bizarre
It's where we reach our star

A tribute of sorts is
Just to keep life alive
A warning for all now
For the fit and deprived

In the dissonant soul
In the strange and bizarre
It's where we reach our star

Step around me in one way
Now
With your impermanent skies
Track Name: To Burn
All along the branches its eyes puncturing sight
In the deepest silence its steps slashing the night

And
All it's nooses set him to burn
Uncontrolled
Don't lose sight, don't lose track - no

Out from all the edges there's the spirit of fright
It's the apogee across the soil that cried

Raining in blood

Raining in blood - again
Rain upon the souls that bent
Track Name: The Quiet Man Sings
Now it's time to go
From the place where time will stand still
Leave when time will stand for the hour
From the place where time will be still

Mind is the state of the I
And it's drenched with pride
Sinfully snide

No one left to go
And they trust themselves with no will
There's no joy in dying while hopeless
In the place where time will be still

A word of wisdom from quiet man
Leave before the setting sun

Mind is the state of the I
And it's drenched with pride
Sinfully snide
Track Name: Branches as Hands
Through the years of the ageless wood
Earth reclaims their second lives
Through the years of the ageless wood
Hell will claim their second lives

Segregated souls of freaks

Where silence is meeting endings
Living in the life of when
The age lost - in question
As a corpse with eyes, a cell

Rotting men due to be mourned
Epitaph from no friend
Tepid pale skins to be worn
As the life form ascends

Bodies summing up your form.
Widening branches as hands
You're a sentient, a sky spurn
Repugnant gist of odd ends

Where silence is meeting endings
Living in the life of when
The age lost - in question
As a corpse with eyes, a cell

Let this erratic mind be free
Oh, Enma - Oh, Enma
Song of peace to soothe the dead
Oh, Enma - King Enma

Where silence is meeting sensing
Sinking through the endless well
The age lost - in question
As a corpse with eyes, a cell
Track Name: Sun
Only sun will catch your sight
Shadowed by the core of fright

All the ghouls and men alike
No one's driving back with light

And the forest will rise
Under one fiend's glow
With the suicidal sawn
Into a lifeless spawn
Track Name: Rain Mirrors Light
Rain - Opens nights
Rain - Falling skies
When all is gone
Clouds over sunset

Rain - Covers light
Rain - Dropping wild
When all you have
clouds over sunset

And at twilight
You can see clear
I won't mind
When there's dust here

There's an image that shows when the image is shattered
We're not so rotten and deaf
We don't seem prepared for the life that we're after
But won't choose dying instead

Rain - Mirrors light
Rain - Falls in kind
And what you have
Is watching the sunrise
Track Name: In Effect
It's madness in effect

Sadness is prey
It's black and white and gray
Sadness is prey

Cuts through the day
And lets us see decay
It cuts through the day

It's madness in effect

Cuts through the day
And lets us see decay
Sadness is prey

It's tragedy in spades
A walking gloom
Separating days with fresh blood left its way

It's every light that fades
Still in the womb
A sacrifice unpaid and all we see is

Cut through the day
It's black and white and gray
Sadness is prey

It's madness in effect
Track Name: Light Stream
Nothing I see is a sign from the dead
It's just a gift from those whose eyes scream
I know what's left for me to do here
I won't despair
It's desuete
I'll be the loan
To pay their debt

I finally see the air
From those who taught me how to dye borderlines

In this light stream I can see the debris
It's all that's left for me to find
Caught in what appears to be an end for
Their empty deaths
They're turning tides
For all that's left
Is feeling life

Seeing its means are in stride - last encore
Watching its eyes open wide - last encore

One last song to sing for the pain I can't redeem
(Words on a Wing)
And see the creature as a whole

I finally see the air
From those who taught me how to dye borderlines
Track Name: Run
Swore to save the dawn
Blind me
With your opposing sun
Here to pay their debt
Burn me
Until there's nothing left

And the sky fell down
All the way

Now in piles of sand
I see
Remains of lifeless ends
Death is all around
And I'm
On the opposing ground

And the sky fell down
All the way

Fire
(Light me again)
Put your hands over your eyes
Till the danger's gone

Fire
(Light me again)
Pull some dirt over your eyes
Till the danger's gone

And the sky fell down
All the way
And the sky fell down
All the way
And his eyes fell out
All the way
And the sky fell down
All the way
Track Name: Song of Peace
As the blood will fill the sky
And death's a dying art
There's the pain that you'll outlive
To hear the birds sing from the start

This one time
intertwined with yours
I'm in the sky, I'm the dirt, I'm the light

In this realm that's shy to touch
I can feel all as one
I hope you'll hear my song of peace
'till you will never feel so numb

This one time
Intertwined with yours
I'm in the sky, I'm the dirt, I'm the light

Rhythm created
Around the empty pages
