Rage against the dying of the light.
Mankind should burn and rave at close of the day.
Let snow white hearses remain vacant,
So caws the birthright of mortality.

Though wise men,
At their end,
Know dark seems them
Soul returns
To its descent

I wonder at bells that rise
Name - I still echo a cry,
As for a firm flash Ifully know
deep at heart
a fearful trip has begun

A trip caused by the black milk of daybreak (you and) I drink
at nightfall.
The chill, the stupor, the letting go, is to be feared or craved?
Would there be cheer or commiseration from empyrean heights,
If you should die and I should live?

Time will
Likely just gurgle on
with - deep desire to dwell.
On a
startled lust for life;

will to doom,
the allotment a riddle

Somebody’s sorrow is making me weep.
I see uncaring skies where grief’s smoke now reeks

A vapor which ciphers, As death kindly stopped
for somebody someone.

Somebody who sang the sun in flight.

Someone who saddened as it set.
passing rays evoke discordance
Vivid eyes that fade in fire,
Blinded gaze to blaze like meteors

Stars that deform
then will reform
Find any destination to reach a path

It may be a way of ground, or air, or nought, or plain
beyond images and words - An occurrence sui generis
And as my cloud atlas keeps greyin’ I’ll surely drift,
But then nothing is ever found without something somewhere getting lost

The debut LP „Risen to Ruin“ was released in October 2012. No matter what the future holds, there will be many more highlights for sure.
