Michael F. Technical excellence collides with conceptual mysticism for a wicked rock/psych/Stoner/math-rock adventure. Stellar vocals... great musicianship. Innovative to the nines. Killer... Favorite track: Astronavigation.

Soshanna ♥ This album satisfies my appetite for heavy hitting hard rock and them some. The gritty, grungy vocals are some of the best Ive heard in awhile. I am digging the attitude this album brings. Favorite track: Of Death And Dying.

Drowning in a sea of visions We're sailing towards the edge of reason The waves call out my name The waves call out my name They call out my name Deceived by the dead, by the rules they have written By fall of night we all will be gone Row! Row! We're near the edge, now go We're near the end now, we're home Call out my name Sailing to the edge of the world

Searching the horizon for a sign Gazing at the stars in hopes of salvation Don't try to save me You need to save yourself Drifting to a higher state of mind Enchanted by the fire and its final hour Don't try to save me You need to save yourself Don't try to save me You need to save yourself We don't belong here You'd better save yourself Don't try to save me You'd better save yourself Astronavigation I need to save myself Save me from myself Save me from my own hell

Time rewinds and folds itself within my hands No reward when I depart, no amends. Lift me up in radiance, I awake Into the abyss I stare, endless mare A raging storm in the wake of a saviour triggers odd behaviour down to my every cell Step into the void, revel in weightlessness Sink in silent waters that now turn to red Arms are rivers, tentacles in liquid form Mind and matter now collide, dispersing waves Time has lost its grip on me and so has space A raging storm in the wake of a saviour triggers odd behaviour down to my every cell A wager between god and a mirror Ages gone and we still run away from it all and we still run away from it all Tyrant time marches on Rising tide washes all A raging storm in the wake of a saviour triggers odd behaviour down to my every cell Time Tide

I'm standing on the edge of light Darkness soon to consume me You've found new ways to lie But you could not fool me I'm waiting I'm craving I'm waiting I'm clinging Decaying You'll never know where I have been in dreams You'll never know what I have seen You'll never walk the path with naked feet You'll never follow me down I see a scarlet sky ignite in rain and I feel colliding waters cover me as I kneel and melt into the crimson veil A world unseen unfolds behind the in-between I'm walking through a maze of trees As old as ancient memories Creatures hide beneath fallen leaves Feels like death is embraced here I'm waiting I'm craving I'm waiting Decaying Contemplating You'll never know where I have been in dreams You'll never know what I have seen You'll never walk the path with naked feet You'll never follow me down I see a scarlet sky ignite in rain and I feel colliding waters cover me as I kneel and melt into the crimson veil A world unseen unfolds behind the in-between I'm waiting I'm craving Decaying I'm waving goodbye You'll never know where I have been in dreams You'll never know what I have seen You'll never walk the path with naked feet You'll never follow me down Goodbye

The Djinn 03:24
Cold blooded heart tearing me apart Figures in the sand dancing in the wind Downworlder Swaying shadows burn Speak to me, oh sun Before I turn to dust Creatures of the night crawling in despair Shadows on the rise With sharpened blades came sweet silent.. Sleep in severed arms They will keep you warm Hunted by the ones from hollowed undergrounds A serpentine mirage motions me to watch As bodies intertwine into an infernal device Creatures of the night crawling in despair Shadows on the rise With sharpened blades came sweet silent sleep Strangest flesh divides Serpent’s mesh invites Don’t drink from the well Cursed by ancient spells Pierced from within Dagger of the Djinn

Oneironaut 05:22
I’ve bred the strangest soul along the path of rage, behold His arms spread like branches on a dead tree His legs buried deep like roots into the earth A landscape unfolds before my.. My eyes How far can you see Oneironaut How far will you go Followed the marks of silver, now turned to gold The gyroscope signals There is no hope My eyes How far can you see Oneironaut How far will you go I hover in empty space Breathe slowly Uncover Into deep sleep I navigate Gravity no longer us holds Hold on My eyes How far Oneironaut

The great reveal before the fall Made of steel and standing tall My mind was tortured, my veins severed The loss of you tore me apart Fear now holds the king's card Dwell in the past Dive into the deepest dark Find your way into its heart My lungs are clear It's the calm that drags me down The silent blue that tunes me out I'm not waking up to find my dreams severed Forget the past, forget me not Grab my hand, I'm reaching out No, I won't sink I'm light as a feather

Followed the shoreline until night turned to day And I'm waiting and waiting for you Wasting the hours given to me by a sage As I'm wasting and wasting away Calling the kings and queens by name as I sing As I sing and I sink as my sorrow crashes in waves But tomorrow this beauty will fade into a haze Light gives way to grey Fall into sleep as I hide in my haven, the shade Fading and fading away Current once dormant, now pulls me into a delayed transmission I wish for my sorrows to crash into waves But tomorrow this beauty will fade into a haze Light gives way to grey Descend into madness A city of light Immersed in a capsule constricted by time A fountain of sadness surrounded by fire How empty this vessel How hollow this shrine Wasting the hours, surrendered, oblivious today Fall into the center, I crawl into space again Magic words you say, ceiling gives way to the sky Absolving my sin, day gives way to grey
9.
Secrets and worlds between revealed in velvet shades I’ve seen the canvas paint itself The cry of dawn in red. In red In red Light of fire dictates the dance The fold inwards begins, imploding like the stars Spoken to the ancient sons of planets left for dead We were left for dead The spiral has no end The hour has come to enhance Senses are heightened at last Delusions are shattered to shreds I’m seeing red I see red I see red
10.
Living in an artificial world All my friends were sucked into the void Sleep and her half-brother death are home Lay beside me Come and take me home When I lay my head to sleep Would you come and rest with me We will bathe in a lake of dreams Floating down the endless stream When I lay my head to sleep Sleep and her half-brother death are home No more tales of the living to be told House of holy ghosts, you will walk alone Lay beside me Come and take me home I am coming home

You've come to bring me a message I wasn't ready to receive You flew from far, far away Where no one ever has set foot Open the door, open the door I'll take what's mine and be gone Time is passing by and I'm learning to read signs once so overwhelming I'm not ready to leave just yet Open the door I'm gliding through a passage A narrow glimpse of light Open the door, open the door I'll take what's mine and be gone Open the door, open the door Take what's mine and be gone
