Ovidiu Simion Carries a special significance, that special blend of brutal/clean that I love so much. There are some Opeth influences on the album, but the outcome doesn't seem copy-pasted from them, the band goes on its own direction. Love this album! Favorite track: Curtains.

Track Name: Friends For A While
We sink and fall, they see our lies, I’m ready to kill
We sink and fall, they see our lies and that’s the deal.

They see me falling down from here.
They see me falling down.

We can be friends for a while
Unless it’s not important to you.
We can be friends fo a while
Unless it’s not so important to you.

Oh, sweeetest face,
Stay a while, ’til the riddle fades.
Oh, wind, you’ll be king someday
Stay.

I am just a riddle, I can’t make you
Hear the sounds
Never see me ’cause you might not understand
Remember

Remember, remember the times
Remember, remember or die.

The sun that shined existed just for you
Believe in what I say
I say it ’cause it’s true
I’ll have some rest now
I wanna be like you
Believe in what I say
I say it cause it’s true

My pain, my pain, my pain is irrelevant
My ways are unpredictable
Never understand what you see
Never understand what you are
Never understand what you see
Never understand what you are
Never understand what you see

I feel the love in the winds, so well
I’ll think of you my friend
Find a reason to stay again
‘Cause that sound of you is dead.
Track Name: The One Who Walks...
All my souls are here today
And nothing’s worth debate
Stay with me, don’t make a sound
I’m leaving you today
All my cities, they collapse
This maze I won’t forget
Forget your past, I’m leaving you today.I brace death
To follow me
To hide is closing your eyees
We can share a destiny
But not in this time.Never know and never wait for my obsession
Don’t let it go away
Shadows come and go
But all the other things you love are slowly dead.Find youself and then you will know that you
Are dead inside those walls.

Final deception in the waters, in the waters now
Final deception in the water.

Dead end, can you find what is coming up ahead
Spit on all your signs, that have made you understand

Drown with me tonight.
Track Name: ...Into The Water
I am standing inside this circle of regrets
I would like to know if my mistakes await
For this moment, I say that I am not sure
For this moment, I say that I am not sure at all.
Today, it’s time, I am not sure at all.
I am ready for surviving, as the story goes
Fading moments into nightmares
That is what I know.

In this way we come and go
That is what we know,
Silence in the cold.
That is what we know,
Silence in the cold.

It’s time to go back
In my graves
Time tears us apart
As always.

You can be the one who walks inside my dreams again.

The war is dead
No conscience
Can be so unaffected. Burning cities into silence.
Track Name: The Lost Art Of Chapeaugraphy: Part I
No rest, innocence
No reason to remain
No love in my arms
I cannot risk to lose my life.My April tune is falling into you.Demon, I served for you for the last time
Wake up and smell the truth before you die.This is all that your heart can see
Trying to be a riddle in the sand
This is all that your mind can be.I feel the engines of this life
I know it’s mine
On the soil of destruction
Now I will rewindOwn the souls, I feel the shame
It comes inside, it kills the rain

Make my mind brace
All your disgrace

No rest, innocence
No reason to remain
No love in my arms
I cannot risk to lose my life.My April tune is falling into you.
Track Name: The Lost Art Of Chapeaugraphy: Part II
I’ve been alone
And I’d rather be helpless and kind.
Here in this madness I’d rather be more than alive.
We can work to be as one
To increase our chances once again
And we can run from what we see
To avoid the consequences.Find the secrets of your mind
Help the ones you left behind
Be aware of all their crimes
Rest against the wall this time
Find the secrets of your mind
Help the ones you left behind to die.
Be aware of all their cirmes
Rest against the wall this time.The secrets of your mind, the ones you left behind.
Track Name: The Lost Art Of Chapeaugraphy: Part III
Now I choose to inform you
I have a plan to deform you
I have my reasons to run away.

It’s all I know
Protect or disrupt
The choice is beyond it’s words
Fill the cage
Was I hard to find?
Do you like my design?
Want me to go inside my blood lies?

And tonight I pray for life.

And the reason to escape is my love for you
Find a real god and wait.

Observing from a distance
I cannot stand this damned resistance from you
Isn’t that true?

The sentence keeps repeating in my mind.

Why do I feel like I’m alive I don’t know this place
Find my will, my alibi, my reason to wake
And run.

What if I believe that dreams never come true?
And what if I believe in happiness and youth?
My road is in front of me but I can’t have my piece of mind, until I find my way.

Inside, this lesson that you took,

It is a mechanism that will
Embrace the power from your soul
And be its servant. Now this lesson that you took
Will be a guide in the afterlife
Embrace the power from your soul
And be its servant. I’m afraid I’m going to lose you all
I’m afraid I’m going. This is the way I control your enemy
I can be a remedy I can be your fantasy
And my eyes burn slowly, you turn,
You can be my real world.
Track Name: Sinners
I see you burning in a purple flame
I see you drowning in an acid rain
I’m tired of living in this reality
Don’t let me down, I want to get out

Come down to see my world, don’t be upset
Come down to see me dead, to understand



Made up in my mind, this miracle is.
Just look into the grave.
You can’t realise, but the sinners are here
Look into the grave

Only essentials, I bring in here
Only essentials to hide my fear.
Track Name: Curtains
I have a picture inside my mind
I see the circus in flames so high
I feel them scorching beneath my eyes
I need this burn mark if I want to stay alive.
Do you want to see my scar, do you want to see it?
I fear this place that I adore
I am afraid but I want more
I fear this place that I adore
I am afraid but I want more.
I will now protect you all,
I will have to burn your skulls
Do you hear the sounds?
You know your eyes are black.
Will you save me as well?
Breaking the silence, I am forgiven.

Run.

I have a picture inside my mind.

White walls, I am ready to go
White walls, I am hating you all

My walls are whiter than snow
My walls are painted with you.
I now forget you.
I’ve never seen you fly so high
Maybe this is why I die, always.
Bombs away, in a rocket I escape
Down with rage, and I fly my plane away.

Dropping bombs as my plane leaves the game.
You run.

Maybe you see them running away,
Maybe you saw them willing to stay.

Get set for it.

Innocence I thought you had
A pretty face, but now you left.
Now your servants pray for lust,
Innocence don’t be upset.

Now you’re here and you pray for the last time,
I have found a place for you inside.
