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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
5.
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.

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.

Sinners 03:26
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.

Curtains 13:31
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.
