about

Our first professionally recorded single 'The Void'.

'Prelude to Reality' tells the story of our lives. It is everything we have, yet it will end one day.

'The Void' tells about a person you love, that makes wrong choices in his/her life. When you give advice to this person to change, he/she sees it as an attack, while you're actually really worried. 'The Void' expresses the frustration that comes from this situation.

Track Name: Prelude to Reality
An eternity ago, there was nothing
and out of this nothing came everything
and this everything shall one day return to nothing
yet again

We are but a drop of fuel
for an everchanging reality
and some day we too shall become nothing
once more

Between us, there is nothing.
Between us, there is everything.
We are not the same,
yet we are the same.
Track Name: The Void
And when that day comes,
will you be left out
in the void?

Had enough yet?
Do you realise that this will never end?
You keep searching
in the wrong place.

Though I try to
reach out to you to prevent another fall
You ignore it
and attack me

Can't you see the difference
Can't you see the profit
Can't you see the fortune
that the sun shines upon me

Love has made me warmer,
wisdom made me stronger.
The void consumes your shield
against the enemies within.

The soul as my advisor
life will make me wiser.
You surrender to the life of chasing after
satisfaction that will fade again.

I advised you
You accused me of not caring about your luck.
What do I know,
I'm just boring.

But you try to
break the statue of me that you built yourself
for a little
consolation

Can't you see the difference
Can't you see the profit
Can't you see the fortune
that the sun shines upon me

Love has made me warmer,
wisdom made me stronger.
The void consumes your shield
against the enemies within.

The soul as my advisor
life will make me wiser.
You surrender to the life of chasing after
satisfaction that will fade again.

You don't see the difference.
You don't see the profit.
You don't see the fortune
that the sun shines upon me.

Love has made me warmer,
wisdom made me stronger.
The void consumes your shield
against the enemies within.

The soul as my advisor
life will make me wiser.
You surrender to the life of chasing after
satisfaction that will fade again.
