about

With the release of "Destiny" the band continues to develop its unique sound that combines relaxed, lush, well-arranged electronic music, with a half-spoken male vocal. It's like musical poetry that fits your darkwave or even neoclassical moods, while still throwing in some synthpop beats and hooks.

Track Name: Relief
The road on which I stand
Unnoticed and silent I watch the clouds gathering
The wind blows into my face
Mixing tears with water
And I think that it’s better that way

I leave the house at dawn
My heart is empty and aching
Indifferent and free I walk among the rays of waking sun
I touch your hand
And when you watch me leaving
I smile for the first time

Eyes full of hope and
Filled with despair
(I try to) relieve the pain
For which I didn’t care
All strings torn and burnt
All songs dull and sung
And I think that it’s better that way

Schritte im Regen
Atem statt der Worte
Der letzte Blick durch das schmutzige Fenster
Es ist meine Poesie des Abschieds
Die mich grausam, ruhig
und so schön macht
Erleichterung für beide
Und kein Tod
Poesie für beide
Und kein Tod
Track Name: Hideaway
Here you are welcome,
To breathe out all the worst
And dissipate recollecting
All those you’ve lost

Words becoming excessive
Mix with the heartbeat
Fragrances won't let you forget
Images won't let you sleep

Daydreams bring autumn wind
That echoes their voices
They lead you here again
Lulling strange noises

But sleep tight
No nightmares on the way
When you press against your chest
The loved one who’s come to stay
Track Name: Destiny
Turn away, there's no escape
You cannot hide from yourself forever
Look around, but don't be afraid
This is the face you recall
In your dream
...'cause I'm your destiny

Don't forget, please don't forget
All those days we spent together
Far away, over the clouds
I'm lost in the abyss of time
Since you're gone
...'cause you're my destiny
Track Name: Living For You
I will follow you
To the edge of the world
Where the sun always shines
And flowers unfold

Just lend me your heart
And show me your smile
We will shed no more tears
There will be no more cry

Whatever you do
Wherever you go
I'm living for you
You are not alone

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
You are not alone
I'm living for you

I will give to you
All I have in my life
Just to make you forget
And keep you alive

When the stars lead the way
Our journey will start
Always staying together
Never falling apart
Track Name: Eternity Awaits
All love is lost
The feelings we once had
Are dead and almost rotten
As we have failed.
The promise never kept
And memories long forgotten

So many worthless words
And weary sleepless nights
As we surrender to the past
So many empty thoughts
About the wasted times
All love is lost
And we have turned to dust

Eternity awaits…
Eternity... Eternity...
Track Name: Never Crossing Lines
Don’t let the pain dissolve your heart
Like lines which never mean to cross
Our lives will always be apart
We’d never know about the loss

Some wicked and resourceful hand
Will always put you off my way
No ache to feel, no wounds to mend
No love, no passion to repay

Don't lose your faith
And keep my guiding light
I know we'll meet one day
Yet we are still alive

Upon the look in empty sky
The star you see is always mine
It’s you I’ll never tell a lie
It’s me you’ll never drop a line

And when our minutes cease to be
Days swept like withered autumn leaves
Soft darkness falls on you and me
With pleasure that it always gives
Track Name: To Live Again
Crawling in the night
He craves some privacy
Greeting the dawn
We spill the last drop of youth

They used to hunt eternal love
And find ways to live again
To rise again
To feel again

You have me
Hold my hand as years go by
You have me
`till the clock strikes good-bye

You have me
To banish gloom and fears
Still you have me
As minutes turn into years

Crying in their arms
He craves loneliness
Burning old poems
Inhaling the scent of time

Hiding from the light
We invent ways to live again
To rise again
To love again
Track Name: Dein Märchen
You caught a shooting star
It burnt your hands
Angels’ tears
Turned into poison
This velvet night
It looks like it’s all over
Places abandoned
Friends lost

But somehow you know
You have more roads to tread
But somehow you know
Your mystery lies ahead

Dreams rain down on you
Lead you through the unknown
To that distant corner
To be the world of your own

Surrounded by shadows of yesterday
Jumping out of the blue
Be it darkness or forest of fairies
You try not to lose a child in you

Verlorene Gesichte
Stimmen aus der Vergangenheit
Verlassen dich jetzt
Du bist ganz allein
Aber ein seltsames Gefühl führt dich in die
Dunkelheit
Vernichtet alles was war
Zerstört Träume
Erneuert Worte
Es lauten die Geläute der anderen Dimension
Die himmlische Musik füllt die Luft
Und öffnet dich
Und alles wird Märchen
Dein Märchen
Track Name: Broken Time Machines
Smell the rain
Of the awakening day
Thunder of dreams
Is roaring only for us

Delirious and weak
Bathing in the moonlight
We step into the mirrorland
While stars are raining down

We are the ones who dare
To grasp the invisible
To catch what no one
Has ever wished to believe

We share this illusion
This lifelong instant
To reach the ones
On the other side

The same old vision
As many nights before
The sky of 1997
That you won’t see anymore

Trapped in a kaleidoscope
Of glances, voices and scenes
Of vanished landscapes
And broken time machines
Track Name: Ever After
The story unsung
And words unspoken
All memories gone
A couple long broken

With distances growing
We have nothing to say
And still I cannot believe in
The game that you played

But only when I close my eyes
I can see it clear
When true love was real
And we had no fear

In this raining December
We were so alive
And I still remember
Your beautiful smile
