about

After years of progression, many musical influences were gathered on this EP, resulting in a very personalized and varied sound which includes moments of anger and frustration in heavy riffs mixed up with melancholy in an ambient aura. The guitar melodies, a powerful rhythm section, an eccentric violin and many different vocalizations are essential when reaching this level of compromise.

So, on October 5th 2007, we've released this self-made EP.

Recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by the band, without access to professional staff, space or material, this record was very well accepted, reaching a second edition.

This edition is digitally remastered, where the sound has been enhanced and improved, to better hold the essence of this record.

Track Name: Bliss
Lyrics:

"Just a birth…
Growing…
Know who you… are…

Into myself, I seem to crawl every time,
I need to hide from it.
It’s insane when you look around you and…
There's no one else to talk to

A mirror shattered in the floor
What I wouldn’t give!
To make these voices stop,
to make them all go away!

I hear them every day,
playing at my brain.
Shut in myself!
Help…

I hear it every night,
Burning through my mind.
No, no more!
Please!

I don’t know what to think of you…
The ghost is me, screaming down on me.

Just a rebirth…

Feels strong to overcome,
Don’t mind to go in a free fall.
If I can’t reborn,
I quit the journey of my life.

Your bliss is mine for the taking
How couldn't I see this?
Don’t matter what’s past,
Now your pure soul is my life.

Your bliss belongs to me,
I feel it running through my veins.
Now I feel complete - incomplete!"
Track Name: Mind Down
Lyrics:

"Fault’s growing up inside
Doesn’t know where else to hide
If you try to keep me away
And use the mask that helped you to forget

All the people down
Oh no, why can’t you see?
Why? I don’t feel free
Somehow, evolution’s far

I was living for today
Could I stop the endless shame
Hope you never miss the end
And your will to share

All the people down
Oh no, why can’t you see?
Why? I don’t feel free
Somehow, evolution’s far

We feel so proud when we reach up high
Why can’t we all have, the same whole sky
I’ve got my mind down

All the people down
Oh no! Why can’t you see?
Why? I don’t feel free
Somehow, evolution’s far

We feel so proud when we reach up high
Why can’t we all have, the same whole sky
I’ve got my mind down
Evolution’s far… shit

Mind down! Down!

Suffer!"
Track Name: Wasted
"I try to bring something,
Out of my damn mind
Running through past memories,
I see your distorted smile.

I try to forget,
All that wicked past.
I cry out loud,
Every time it comes!

Inside my heart I know,
How bad my mind blows.
Thanks to all your dirty games.
Thanks to all my damn blame.

I see you every day
Fucking up my mind
Get out of here…

I see how hurt I am to remember
all that shit that made me be what I am today.

I dig through my mind searching for…

I’m wasted up inside, I try to ease my mind, every time…
I’m wasted up inside, I try to ease my mind, every time I’m burning in pain!

I’m wasted up inside, I try to ease my mind!"
Track Name: (Through the looking) Glass
"I wonder what lies beyond this world
Is it something maybe I should've known?
I want to find the answers to this
questioning that thrills me

am I going insane?

I swear I'll try to
I know I've got to
this time I want to see

through the looking glass

Meditation...
Your religion...
There's nothing it could have said
to explain this reality

They'll fill these lies within me
they want me to become
one of them,

a sheep to be guided

I'm not one of your sheep
so stay… stay the fuck away from me

Don't come around again
with those lies you feed
I'm not listening to your prayin'
I don't wanna be one of your sheep

You lie
while I
run from
you and this
bad told story
which thrills
me again

Is it something we should have
known through all our motherfuckin'time?

I swear I'll try to
I know I've got to
this time I want to see

through the looking glass

So tell me: who is right?

I wonder what lies beyond this world…
Is it something we should have
known through all our motherfuckin'time?

Shout!"
Track Name: Freudiness
"Oh why can't I be free from myself!!

ooohhh why?
do I even cry?
to remember who I am
this freakin' animal beggin' for more of you!

Mr Freud was right all along!
the insane doctor that lived on
the sexual complexity of the human soul

To feel your lips, the shape of your tits, the taste of your hips, right there, between...I'm lost in you!!

I'm hunting, craving all your sweet body has to give

Oh why can't I be free from myself?
this animal that keeps roaring deep inside!
all this hunger blinds me from sanity...

I need to feel you more and more.
I need to eat you more and more.
I can't be pleased, I will need more.
I can't be teased, I'll want much more!

I'm not in control of my hunger
I'm trying not to surrender
to this animal will to tear you apart
to fuck you through your heart!

oh why can't I be free from myself?
this animal that keeps roaring deep inside!
all this hunger blinds me from sanity...

I want to... I need to... I will... I need to fuck you
I want to fuck you, more and more
I need to fuck you."
Track Name: Torn Away
"So tell me how it ends, I'll tell you how it begins.

All of my will bends to your desire of thrills
That's all there is to…
Burn the evidences inside. Erase them like bad memories.
I'll keep them buried in mind…

So… I… Deny… Deny…
All those mistakes again! All those mistakes again!
All those mistakes again! All those mistakes!

Tearing away my will, breaking down my insecurity
I gave it all away only to be cast out...

I hide I hide I hide oh why I hide?
Thrown all of this to a being, another soul on the edge of madness
Through all of this I've seen you crawling through my sadness

I stand, I demand an explanation!
I want to know your damnation

So Tell me! So Tell me!

So tell me how it ends, I'll tell you how it begins!
All of my will bends to your desire of thrills
That's all there is to burn the evidences inside
Erase me like I'm a bad memory. Bad memory!

What if I've lost my mind?! It all just seems to rewind the past coming forward and back, waiting for me to crack!

Fallen… Going insane…
This torment is more than I can take

Fallen... Fallen… Going insane…
This torment!

Tearing away my will, breaking down my insecurity
I gave it all away only to be cast out
Tearing away my will, breaking down my insecurity
I gave it all away

I gave it all!"
