Everybody now and then thinks of a song, keeps replaying it in heart, and is suddenly struck with awe when hearing someone else singing it aloud. Or they look for the proper names to give an idea just being born when somebody pronounces the right words. As if we were connected through an invisible data network.

Wanting it or not we are interconnected and related in a way. All over the world there is a fine web of dark thread transmitting our thoughts, emotions, pains, joys and desires which make the web shiver the same as a fly, a dewdrop or a gust of wind hitting the spider’s web. It is not dark due to the bad qualities of its contents but because of our means to describe it being strictly limited. The same applies to the Dark Matter, the stuff which makes the most of our universe including us, the humanity still having no idea what it really is.

And exactly the same applies to music itself: it does not physically exist, however it is capable of lifting us up, high, taking us far away, being the bridge over troubled waters, a safe port of souls, providing us with wings or even igniting love. Let us be sensitive and careful with our thoughts, beware of the evil, negative and destructive ones. We never know what they cause at the other end of each thread. It’s all the same all the time: what you give is what you get. Let us give the good exclusively. This is what the album is about.

Track Name: Connected With The Universe
Hey little blue world
Whence we came here?
And why?
I just want to say, the light is born in day
like me and you again.
And river reaches the sea on the end of every way
So what’s wrong?
That we fight and what for?
God give me the answer.

Only you can change the evil in the love.
Only you can look into the eye of the child.
Only you can see his pure and deep light.
Only you can feel every pulse of heart.

About camps and killing fields,
about the holocaust.
OK, said the Lord:
War it’s not my job,
I made birds in the sky
singing wind and the sun
sleeping stars on the branches
not the guns, my son.
Answer is in one
in the miracle of you.

Now tear down this wall
what is inside of you
between all the lies
and plain human truth
Track Name: Black Threads
I feel like last day of gravity
I´m in the dark
Of one second my immortality
And moon is silent like a white shark
Here where we are
are so many faces
And each of them is mine

Black Threads!!!
- Just hissing the snake head
Black Threads!!!
- As bodies of many rats
Black Threads!!!
- Like a tentacle of long embrace

In blackest night
I swim beneath the waves
Right here in the space and tide
And everything I do
Is dancing inside a circle
And everything I can see
Is the colour which can draw the pain

But only light is my way out

Black Threads!!!
- Just hissing the snake head
Black Threads!!!
- As bodies of many rats
Black Threads!!!
- Like a tentacle of long embrace
Track Name: What Do You Want?
You said to me once
you gonna take me to the end of the world
all our life, all the way
And I believed.

It's not me what you hold in your hands
It's only your ideal
It's not me who decided to live in fear
Just start up a car and get me in

I perhaps won’t convince you
with your narrow mind to try a new things
You’ve got black threads inside
continually attracting you to meanness.

And when you lose the control,
What are you supposed to do?

To be honest, what’s your life all about?
To have most powerful engines
Always pretending
Dou you think it’s astounding?

It's not me what you hold in your hands
It's only your ideal
It's not me who decided to live in fear
Start up your fucking car and get out of here!
Track Name: Pray
The moon is blue and night is the red
I am falling and shadows are dead
My beautiful soul is like a sleeping bird
searching the path
losing the land

Touching is all that has no name
Like you and me playing the game
On lips and bones in heavy night
On the eyes and dream in the rain of the light
I know you are far away from me
But threads of your mind are my little pray

I kiss you with a fishbone in the throat
And over the roofs is anchored the last boat
Above the roads is heaven and time
Dogs are just running around the sky

Where is the girl with flames in her hair
Who loves me night after night still again
Maybe she’s a wave ending the shore
Or little stem dancing to the dawn
Track Name: In the Fog
Track Name: Island Song
I’m just an island without sea
wave of silent - shore of words
fish of darkness blind like me
floating deeper than the roads

It is time and it is the night
the river running in my veins
you can feel the pulsing tide
and the skin of morning sands

Sun is red and Moon is blue
my clay body is falling dawn
heavy like the lie and true
on the surfaces all has gone
Track Name: Pills
When snow falls down
I see everything in dance
Oh snow king with crown
Give us one more chance

I did not know that I was dreaming
The night lies under the eyelids
I did not feel stellar beam
That was silent on the lips

And I speak to the sky
I ask myself I ask all doubts
how to fall how to fly
how go on the route to happiness

and the fallen snow
is white like pills
cure for soul and bones
thawing medicine

we are sick of darkness
sick of time of night
but shadows of all the angels
are the wings of the kite

When snow falls down
Track Name: Echoes of the Past
Track Name: Ten
It is the day named ten
I set off the way of time
Autumn on shore of the rain
still hesitates with his chime

but horseshoes of the silent
and the breath of all of the bird´s mouth
talking from the misty island
in nostalgic for the south

And I like in the timelessness
I breathe wind into the sails
Our ship named windless
Sailing bodies with the nails.

I feel like I forgot to leave
the watching sky with broken face
there are burning leaves on the tree
and yesterdays of falling grace
Track Name: Forgiveness
I listen to the morning rain
and I look out the window
how days go away
in the drops of yesterday
as people out of here

I see two little sea
when I search their secret names
in the grey face of the sky
who weeps over us

I know that we lost our souls
and innocence in the grave
but only in forgiveness
we saved ourselves
and the world

Still we’re looking for the right path
but we’re still going back and gone somewhere
in the masks of fear
wandering in circles to disappear
without you and without me
because our self was stolen long ago

How high must fall the Star
then finds its peace
and million dreams
to be similar to the pigeon
who fallen into the sun
and who brings next dawn
red as his eyes and my child blood
when we´re lost in a field of sunflowers
as the first and last
and finally

Where we know the answers about doubts
which woke in us
and we stand in soil of water
and the banks flowing around us
and bridges of glass
leads to heaven like our time

Und vergib uns unsere Schuld,
Wie auch wir vergeben unseren Schuldigern
