about

Haven Intermediate. Here I sit between the boundaries of our consciousness, here I drift among the remnants of a story. Though the fleeting memories that assemble within my mind are hazy, their voices produce amazing echoes; they speak languages unheard of.

"Where am I and what have I been through," I keep asking myself.

Track Name: Glass Wall
Hold on as we glide through
The Kingdoms of this Second World
A land of fallen angels
And halcyon days of distant years
Where the sunset hides
And shadows of the past array...

Fly away into the unknown
You'll see the world through eyes up above
And you'll find me when
The ocean is on fire
Remembering
The times when I was king

But now I've strolled away
In this world of clay
Am I bound to stay
Smiles glimmer away
And I can see their light
Through a blurry Glass Wall
Broken million times
Still I can't stand to see the fall

Close your eyes and fly

But now I stroll alone
This world is my home
In pure Tranquility
We drift into sleep
And faint smiles greet our dreams
Through this eternal Glass Wall
Broken million times
Still I can't stand to see the fall

Close your eyes and fly
Track Name: Know
When time began to run
The time to leave had again come
To lands yet again unknown
Oh, how would I ever know

How would I ever know
When angels die do they just fly
Or are they reborn

How will I ever know
In a time of need should I let me go free
Or let me be torn

I fooled my own self
Convinced my soul that it was all just a test
Caught between my own teeth
Will I have to ride all the way to the land of the king

Oh, how would I ever know
When angels die do they just fly
Or are they reborn

How will ever know
In a time of need should I let me go free
Or let me be torn

How would I ever know
When angels die do they just fly
Or are they reborn

How will ever know
In a time of need should I let me go free
Or let me be torn

How would I ever know
How will I ever know

How will I ever know
How would I ever know
Track Name: Out Of Reach
I'm sitting here in this chamber waiting
The lights are out again
In the darkness I make out glimpses and noises of a world
That drag me out of this shell

The past is screaming at me under the ruins
That crumbled under the weight
The weight of burden that's too much
To make us feel safe

A hundred times I could live this disaster
A hundred times I'll build on top of what has been left

I journeyed corners of the world to find
The key to my mind
And hearts of strangers roaming in the dreams that bring
Your presence showered in the mists that tell me
Who you are and what you want
Cause I know nothing
Except the names you left behind for me
To find beside you

But now you're out of reach again

Night falls and I go back to bed
To find myself again
And as I close my eyes the light erases all the pain
With my wounds healed I press on forward

Down an old and lost path awaiting
To find your eyes of stone waiting for my fall

I traveled to corners of the world to find
The key to my mind
And hearts of strangers roaming in the dreams that bring
Your presence showered in the mists that tell me
Who you are and what you want
Cause I know nothing
Except the names you left behind for me
To find, besides you

But now you're out of reach again

I journeyed corners of the world to find
The key to my mind
And hearts of strangers roaming in the dreams that bring
Your presence showered in the mists that tell me
Who you are and what you want
Cause I know nothing
Except the names you left behind for me
To find beside you

I journeyed corners of the world to find
The key to my mind
And hearts of strangers roaming in the dreams that bring
Your presence showered in the mists that tell me
Who you are and what you want
Cause I know nothing
Except the names you left behind for me
To find, besides you

But now you're out of reach

Again...
Track Name: Spirit Melody
I see a lone spirit walking
Its heart is buried neath the soil
Memories of life, of love and pain
The crossing paths of fear and fate

What has been spoken, heard and felt
Is but a whisper through the leaves
Soon to become a fiery scream
That no one else can hear

Silence envelops all around
The flames of agony have died
The burnt ash gives birth to life
Soothing the wandering fragments

The spirit rises once again
Walking the road that never ends
To find its heart inside the void
And carry on, to live again
Track Name: Silly Heart
(instrumental)
Track Name: Our Bones
Two turns of the lock and then you fly away
Though you were never inside anyway

Giant endless skies were never a border to us
Though oceans rusted our decks and tore our sails

I left a part of my soul
Inside memories of flowing water
Prisms of light...

A pharos that will guide us back home

I never thought that these rays would pierce my skin
An overestimation of my strength

Revered feelings pour out from my unhealed wounds
Hope, despair, and wonder dance around in circles

Dreams and promises rain down and soothe our skin
But our bones drift apart further and away

Rolling back in time we resonate again
But not in melodies that connect these worlds
Track Name: Last Day Of Summer
How dare you barge in and change my life like that
Just a couple of street kids
Blissful lives of uncertainty

Somehow, though, they like it better like that
They shouldn't complain

The comfort of a friend's embrace
A last bastion of safety

In a world torn by the tides of a deity's
Melancholic undertones
Future angels by a campfire
Enjoying what time they have left

What do they find inside their hearts
Beautiful sounds of a Second World

Journeys they have never been to
And a transparent moon

And the ticks of a clock that counts down
Like the steps of a ruthless giant
Who breaks the locks of their emotions

How dare you barge in and change my life like that
How dare you smile so radiantly
Behind the dancing summer flames

How dare you say "I'm afraid"
And break the courage I strive to preserve

How dare you, how dare you
How dare you tell me this today

Prancing sun, stop running away
Come join as we spill our minds on the sand
Don't leave so early
We have so much left to say

Eternal winds carry their laughing voices so far away
A statement by the lives they chose to bear
Turns to gloom

Hiding behind red skies that signal the end
Of the links that used to connect the worlds
Making them forget who they truly are

Besides, who will listen to the sound of their tears
And the noises that these rusty gates make
Locking behind dreams they could have chased

Nevertheless
As long as they have a reason
Somehow they will live

How dare you barge in and change my life like that
How dare you give me a purpose to speak the truth

How dare you lead me into these words
Which I hope I never get to regret

Friend and lover and sister and brother
Know that I am standing here with you
We are bound by the Last Day of Summer
A premonition of cold winter days

How dare you barge in and change my life like that
How dare you share your world with me
And open your heart to let me in

How dare you silently whisper "thank you"
As our time runs out and calls our names

Friend and lover and sister and brother
Know that I am standing here with you
We are bound by the Last Day of Summer
A premonition of cold winter days

(I journeyed corners of the world to find the key to my mind)

Which we will endure
To live again
Another summer

(The dawn veils reality and we're drifting)

We're holding hands
And fade away

The flowing water of the ocean call out to me
The lips of burning fire lean in and kiss me
The stormy winds carry the curtain that will fall
The rumbling earth signals goodbye to the Last Day of Summer

The Last Day Of Summer
Track Name: Yet Another Attempt
Lost I run through wastelands
This strange odd world has tired my mind and soul
I'm longing to go home
But my heart is wayward
Crossroads ahead
All leading to the same end

I wanted to see all
Life had for me in store
A victim to my fate
Now I stand here and wait
In hopes that you will hear me
Through this blurry Glass Wall
Broken million times
Still I can't stand to see the fall

Yet another attempt
To see this through to the end
And turn sounds to light
And banish this dark night
And clear the mist that surrounds
This eternal Glass Wall
Broken million times
Still I can't stand to see the fall

Close your eyes and fly
