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
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
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!
Pray 05:29
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
In the Fog 02:52
Island Song 04:09
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
Pills 04:27
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
Ten 04:59
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
Forgiveness 07:34
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 Amen


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.
