Morts Dramatic and dark, this is progressive metal that kicks ass and keeps the listener riveted! You won't find self-indulgent, wanky passages of random notes belted out at jarring tempo changes and melody is not sacrificed to heaviness for the sake of being heavy! Bloody excellent!! Favorite track: Empty Mirror.

Track Name: Empty Mirror
I thought that I could save myself,
That I could do no wrong,
Delusion, disappointment?
I couldn't be that strong.

Lying to myself that I
Could change the way the things are,
There was no fear only weakness,
Yet there was no truth so far.

Pre-chorus:
Stumbling all around,
Crawling on the ground,
Won't you help me, Lord!?

Chorus:
Once I reached into my soul,
I tried to find my aim, my goal,
But emptiness I've faced, and coldness all around.

I tried to find, the whole new me,
I tried to build up long lost dream,
I cried for an echo, but there was not a sound!

And only thing that I could do,
Was staying blind for me and you,
And only thing that I could see,
Were tons of bricks in front of me!

I remained alone in darkness
Of my anxiety and disbelief,
Grieving cause of loneliness,
And lonely cause of grief!

Pre-chorus:
Stumbling all around,
Crawling on the ground,
Won't you help me, Lord!?

Chorus:
Once I reached into my soul,
I tried to find my aim, my goal,
But emptiness I've faced, and coldness all around.

I tried to find, the whole new me,
I tried to build up long lost dream,
I cried for an echo, but there was not a sound!

Overwhelmed by self denial,
An empty mirror in my eyes,
My odds are weak, a second against forevermore!
Track Name: The Sleeper
Voice's fading, all colors turn to grey,
Feeling numb, I'm sinking deeper and deeper.

And deep within myself, as I drift away,
The vivid dream - I awaken the Sleeper!

Pre-chorus:
I'm falling, I'm falling, from the other side you're calling,
I reach for your hand, as the story keeps unfolding!

Chorus:
All those years that left behind,
Rush in seconds through my mind,
There's no way back anymore,
Never been scared like this before.

You can choose now! (No!)
There is a way! (There is no way!)
Just stay smothered by yourself! (Stay there!)
(When it hurts - it's safe!).

Where madness dwells, where madness reigns,
And never again you will see the light of day.

Open your eyes, and come back to the light!
(No - it can harm you!),
This is your last goodnight!
(Here madness reigns…)

Pre-chorus:
I'm falling, I'm falling, from the other side you're calling,
I reach for your hand, as the story keeps unfolding!

Chorus:
All those years that left behind,
Rush in seconds through my mind,
There's no way back anymore,
Never been scared like this before.

And as I face my hollow shell,
This is a path I know so well,
The less I move, the less I feel,
But I do know I'm on my knees.

I cannot move, I try so hard,
A distant light, a little too far,
Just one last shot, one last time,
And soon I'll leave it all behind.

Pre-chorus:
I fall, I crawl, from the other side - your call!
I reach for your hand, and the mystery is solved!

Chorus:
All those years that left behind,
Now I see through different eyes,
And as the night comes to an end,
I know, I’ll never be scared again!

I cannot move, I try so hard,
A distant light, a little too far,
Just one last shot - one last time,
And finally - I open my eyes!
Track Name: Antimatter (Reality Falls)
I open my eyes and what can I see?
Where is the promised land they all talked about?

All they offer is a masquerade and travesty,
If only I could skip this yellow brick roundabout …
In my final act of respect and honesty,
I know that I'm about to find the easy way out.

You don't get what you prayed for,
You only get what you paid for!

The shapes and forms - I somehow don't fit in,
The strange faces - we've got nothing in common!
Giving up my whole life until I give in,
Paying with my soul to all the evil spirits I summoned!

The storm hits hard the fortress walls,
New power's rising, reality falls!
Leaving behind this empty shell,
I thought that I could save myself,

From myself!
