Search 04:45
SEARCH Like an ancient mariner I navigate among the stars Up the past in the dark Heading to the lights I‘m looking for a place where the world is grace Where shadows are long as dreams Prayers will be heard. Looking for a secret garden of the sweetest fruit But everything is rotten I'm crying I'm late here I will never find this world So innocent and clear As the first child word So let´s light the night And keep on searching. Let´s light the night Let ´s sparks the fire Connect with the stars Help planet Earth to become our home [: Silence breaks the walls There is nothing but truth There is nothing but us:] And let the evil burn on within this fire Like stars that fall in summer and the night is glowing Silence breaks the walls There is nothing but truth There is nothing but us

Aerosouls 03:59
AEROSOULS We came from the dust We call the humans They poured our flesh and bones Into form of the man And then they breathed our souls into us So much for such a small body It expands like the universe Our consciousness is under pressure Sky is just the big black hearse All we can do is feel the stress Life is the fifth state of matter We fell from the stars And we found ourselves naked Eating the apples of sin And that we are plaited In one big human spin It expands like the universe Our consciousness is under pressure Sky is just the big black hearse All we can do is feel the stress We still haven’t made the space For our souls inside Instead we feel like aerosols or aerosouls Hissing our own thoughts and give each other snakebites Instead of kisses

In The Code 05:52
IN THE CODE I wanna cry, I wanna smile in one moment I'm a fallen star, I'm a small isle in the distance I'm flying to the depths I'm flying alone Oh Mother Earth I see you turning red under the blood of flames I hear you screaming scorched from all the sun your face turned to waste and ashes so quiet, unnoticed You gave us life we are killing you for money You gave us maternal love we hate you just for fun Marching in a circle, marching to the dark on a ship of fools Tell me what's next say if we can stop it Tell us if we survive and continue to be a blue drop but I have to go and send the last message to the space in Morse code ...|---|...||...|---|...||...|---|...|| Oh Mother Earth I see you turning red under the blood of flames I hear you screaming scorched from all the sun your face turned to waste and ashes so quiet, unnoticed

Shadowplay 04:09
SHADOWPLAY Good morning Space I'm just a part of someone else's dream With the eyes on dark side of the face Like a deep pool of blue and green So look through the heart of change Give them the fruits of the stars to eat I see human race Losing blood and every grace I see crying hearts Torn to little aching parts Why do we still play this game About me and about the name If you are full of scars Even if you have not found it yet And did not even begin to see The darkness is the only thing you've ever met [: I see human race Losing blood and every grace I see crying hearts Torn to little aching parts Why do we still play this game About me and about the name :]

Today 03:32
TODAY In a heavenly fields you pick the stones from injured clay by eyes Suddenly twilight set the scene And you still hold your breath You may still feel yourself Like a fish feel the sea Like the heart feels the pain Like a bird feels the arrow Like the eternal wild wolves you run to quench the hunger in your hearts To drink your dreams from the surface of water Forever stay alive You’re a beautiful wind Which cannot be embraced or held You set the sail to the sea Somewhere on the waves of tomorrow while long searching for yourself But that's the only way to find That's the only way to get lost But only this way you’ll never lose hope Like the eternal wild wolves forever stay alive Like the eternal wild wolves you run to quench the hunger in your hearts And then in the shady streets you will follow in your past trail Drink your dreams from the surface of water and forever stay alive And there you’ll achieve your future mistakes to understand today

Skylor 04:32
SKYLOR I landed on the waves of clouds I am an astronaut named life I sailed with the solar wind in the sails Armed with the blade of the moon knife only My name is Skylor Blood of dawn is in my veins On a ship of a late pallor I tie the stars by the anchor chains I was never born I'm alone like a shadow Whose body I wear as a mourn In the name of tongueless crows I swear when it's raining These're drops of the candle of my anger And when the wind starts singing It's my last silent answer My name is Skylor Blood of dawn is in my veins On a ship of a late pallor I tie the stars by the anchor chains I was never born I'm alone like a shadow whose body I wear as a mourn in the name of tongueless crows No one asked if you wanted to be released from the eternity But be grateful

Breakwater 05:15
BREAKWATER Is it the morning drop of dew Or the tear of God Which hangs here in the emptiness? I must ask who´s crying It may be the child in me, Or an adult who runs away? And the rainbow ball of water Is still dancing on invisible wings With gravity You are born, row a rocking boat They teach you how to conquer foreign lands They teach you how to be blind and decide What is war and what is a brand Now you’re standing on a cliff Cut by a flash of eternity On your hands as you try to catch The wind they sell in spray You want to revive evil thoughts Break open the bird cages Return the stars up to the sky Dress up angels in the twilight clothes The ground is burning under our feet [: You are born, row a rocking boat They teach you how to conquer foreign lands They teach you how to be blind and decide What is war and what is a brand:]

On The Edge 04:36
ON THE EDGE Drunk by the life so peculiar The irony of fate won’t let me rest You can’t take back words once pronounced For a brief moment you can lie to yourself Standing on the edge of a cliff, looking down the deep One more step, there’s no way back Indeed, that’s what I often pray for Though doing so would end my world What can I do when dressed up like Love Lust has become my Tempter My Honeyland keeps waiting for me out there The river runs unrestrained and wild It will make you feel dizzy And then I may whisper in your ear, Don’t be afraid to scream Drunk by the life so peculiar The irony of fate won’t let me rest You can’t take back words once pronounced For a brief moment you can lie to yourself
9.
ROUND AND ROUND If we know, how things will end Where our journey will lead us Would we still make the same decisions? Or would we choose a different path? Could we even escape our fate? Or would what is deep within us Lead us to the same end like an invisible hand? Does it matter which path we choose If we end up, facing ourselves again? That’s when I knew that nothing changes That everything remains the same. The spinning wheel turns Round and round. One destiny leads to the next A thread, blood-red, connects all our actions. The dead are never truly dead Maybe they´re not here, now. But everything that once lived lives on forever In the eternity of time. Does it matter which path we choose If we end up, facing ourselves again? That’s when I knew that nothing changes That everything remains the same. The spinning wheel turns Round and round.
10.
ANOTHER KIND OF LIGHT I hear the silence of the space Sometimes it sounds like cries of butchered lambs And sometimes sounds like rain but every time there is something like singing. Like a sailor screaming from a crow's nest Like a whale calling for its baby Like the heartbeat of neutron stars Like a whisper of the nebulae. The universe is an endless sea Without the shores and estuaries Where the Comet cruisers sail the crew made of souls. The sky is full of searchlights Like on that day above Berlin But these suns Are just another kind of light. When the calm is too great There’re still constellations That give off the noise of sorrows Like shells broken out of the sea. It’s possible to get hurt by the anchors Left by those who are stuck here In one of the many spaces before us Only the light imprint remained. So I keep on looking for What cannot be found I am looking at something What can’t be seen. What remains of me A long trail behind the ship reaching hands on the Paths of mourning. Give me one last kiss I’m shadow of the time I’m second of the bliss I’m Big Bang rhyme However, the last seal remains The one that’s sign of death For now is still closed But I can hear its breath.

Breathe 05:43
BREATHE On the boat of my desire I sail across the sea of stars Lowering the anchor of seconds Into the shores of dust For that moment of joy This is my first land I visit Will be my name Skylor carved With happiness of ruin? But instead of singing Weeping welcomes me Death tolls instead of the bell ringing Grey Sun above the sea That life is the greatest gift The air is heady like a glass of wine drink with me breathe with me as if we were one Even the fish are silent in their psalms People sign contracts with devils In blood of their own children They look into the ground rather Than above the clouds and higher But instead of singing Weeping welcomes me Death tolls instead of the bell ringing Grey Sun above the sea That life is the greatest gift The air is heady like a glass of wine drink with me breathe with me as if we were one

about

Skylor is the 9th studio album by Dying Passion, released as a digipak by Epidemie Records on the magical day of February 2 (02-22-2022). Pre-orders from Feb. 7 in e-shop of the label.
The album brings 11 original tracks in atmospheric rock / dark wave / dream pop / post-rock sound (with English lyrics).
The recording went through a number of stages, starting with drum sessions in Studio Svárov, everything else recorded in Black Chamber Studio, and completed by mixing by Martin Spacosh Peřina (already working on the previous album Black Threads) and mastering by Jacob Hansen (Katatonia, Volbeat, etc.).
“I can’t imagine living outside this world, this is my life. I thoroughly enjoy composing, recording the music and developing an album,” says the songwriter and guitarist Standa Jelínek. “The key character of the album is the astronaut Skylor, speaking of his experience in space travel and trips to unchartered planets; while exploring these he often wonders if he will ever come back to the Earth,” adds Jelínek, who proves here his status of a true musical explorer.
The cover art was traditionally drawn by Petr Phob Štefek, and it may remind you of the Little Prince. Miroslav Václavek wrote the lyrics. He says, “Dying Passion’s new album was a brave new experience for me, mostly thanks to the freedom I was granted when designing the space sailor. Freedom is always the greatest challenge. I believe I didn’t spare any idea, and gave the concept absolutely everything.”
In the beginning of 2022, the album was piloted by the official video Aerosouls, made in the City Library of Šumperk (direction by Standa Jelínek, cinematography by Tomáš Nechanický).
