Opening track of our first album. Instrumental version


Blinded by the tincture of the perfect black
Universe in birth pain, reaching
For the new light.
Jigsaw of shadows dancing,
Black parts spinning in a spiral
Chiaroscuro of organic red
In birth pain reaching for the new life

Reality coming into leaf
A blinding beauty no one sees
Zephyr of the strings
Inner sense of chaos growing
Embryonic eyes closed to the
Light that burns us from within

... in bloom, out of the spectrum in this endless vacuum (in me).

Tying my sight through freedom
Of hands.
Nourishing prison (poison), island,
A internal reference frame
Luminous dot on the blank…

Nothing, all, neither.
A sea in which is me.
Guided by tides.
Under the waves.
Attracting my eyes with
Loud whispers.

Walk with my enemies beside me.
I fear what’s ahead
I’m loosing contrast in the brightness
Tempted by power, within my grasp
(Ticking clock) remind me to rush patiently
And gently accept it.

... in bloom, out of the spectrum in this endless vacuum (in me).
