fathead dog A definite for any fan of bands like Born of Osiris and/or Shokran! I love the contrast in the music, it's not your typical "deathcore" or "Djent" record. Overall the guitar work is awesome! The melodies are great and you can hear the bass working with the drums. Favorite track: Oceans Of Dreams.

Track Name: Bad Greys
Walking on the deserted streets
Black smoke burning my throat
I wonder why I don't believe in anything
To this path I don't want to devote

I can't open my heart
Trust me, this will never stop

Empty rooms and empty days
Slow life and slow preys
Bad times and bad greys

Alone, I am alone
Sitting proudly on the filth throne

This is my plight
The secret I write
My quill running out of ink
This is my plight
This is why I fight
My whole life I've to rethink

Bored as fuck in the same routine
No matter what I do it's just the way it is
Seeing the world only in bad greys
No matter what I do no matter what I say
Is this the end ? Is this it, you my friends ?
Track Name: Time
Time is my greatest enemy
Denser than death, lonelier than me
Black clouds among humanity
Heavy rain I couldn’t care less

Creating the omniscient sea

I marry the life
I marry the death

Embracing sadness and happiness
Drawing the ultimate balance

Time is my greatest enemy
Denser than death, lonelier than me
Black clouds among humanity
Heavy rain I couldn’t care less

Breach the sky, breath the life
Time is no longer a strife

I marry the death
Track Name: Oceans Of Dreams
Until the end of the world I will be with you
Finding a way, setting a path, things that we will never lose

Looking after you
Looking after me / This is
Simply what life has created the most beautiful

Deserve your life and live today

Surrounded by negativity I know
I will show you everything that worth dying for
Hear my words
Feel the life running
Through your veins, through your soul, we will break all the walls

Deserve your life and live today

Nothing, oh nothing, will hurt you, will hurt me
Disparate are my sins dying in oceans of dreams

Nothing, oh nothing

Disparate are my sins dying in oceans of dreams
Track Name: Two Worlds
Over the years
My eye color
Has been painted
In plain white

Consumed by responsibilities
Afraid of myself, afraid of my choices

I can't stop wondering if I took the right path

Under heavy pressure
I am my own transgressor
Under heavy pressure
I'll use my best endeavors

Feelings I wanted to deny
Afraid until the day I die
There's no escape
Feelings I wanted to deny
Afraid until the day I die

I can't stop wondering if I took the right path
Because nobody, oh nobody, seems to understand me

Under heavy pressure
I am my own transgressor
Under heavy pressure
I'll use my best endeavors

Over the years
My eye color
Has been painted
In plain white

Consumed by responsibilities
Afraid of myself, afraid of my choices
Track Name: Bastion
The gift of life I am spending
The father of everything I must obey
Serving the great master
Every second in my life is a disaster

Rising up in rebellion
Against everything, against my demons
Throwing up my darkest secrets, dying to reach these summits
This is my last bastion

This is my last bastion

The demons, the demons I will never understand
I carry on, I carry on my own path, all alone

Throwing up my darkest secrets, dying to reach these summits
This is not all about redemption, try to figure out the reasons
My life, my way, my freedom stronger everyday
My life, my way, before everything turns to decay

The demons, the demons I will never understand
I carry on, I carry on my own path, all alone

Holding back the worst of me

Holding back executions

I've had enough of this
Now it's time
For me to start over
Defining this new line

The demons, the demons I will never understand
I carry on, I carry on my own path, all alone

Throwing up my darkest secrets, dying to reach these summits
This is not all about redemption, try to figure out the reasons
My life, my way, my freedom stronger everyday
My life, my way, before everything turns to decay
Track Name: Cold
I don't think, I don't think I'll ever be the link
Between faith and joys of living
I don't think, I don't think my head will ever be
influenced by desperate mournings

So cold, cold on the inside
I'd better shut my mouth because I am
So cold, cold on the inside

With ice in my bones
I feel alone

Sometimes I wonder if my soul is dead
I learned as a young boy to keep a cool head

I want to believe my heart is not made with cold ashes

Living with an open heart
Cursed by reason
Before this life falls apart
Cursed by reason
Something that will never stop

I don't think, I don't think I'll ever be the link
Between faith and joys of living
I don't think, I don't think my head will ever be
influenced by desperate mournings

So cold, cold on the inside
I'd better shut my mouth because I am
So cold, cold on the inside

I lost the key
Don't pray for me
Track Name: Splendid Genesis
For the first time seeing the light
And darkness
Discovering the color of the night
It's not harmless

Young life still without secrets
Nor sadness
Soon enough you’ll blow the trumpets
Of your own death

Realizing that our days are numbered
I collapse

I’m nothing like the phenix
Life is linear and then you die
You don’t rise from the ashes

Splendid genesis doesn't exist
There's only nothingness
I didn't find inner peace

Splendid genesis doesn’t exist
My own kind is hopeless
No need to talk about this

Maybe I’m wrong
Cursed but strong until my last breath
And that would be the end of us
