The voices repeating illusions of the past
The rabbits are running in the race of cowardice
They try to climb on the top of the ladder
The ladder of losing the hope to learn more

I make a question and I ask myself
Is this right, is this wrong?
Searching for mystery and wait for the eternal
I lose my fingers to touch the lips of hope

You sell and I buy your body tonight
I watch your eyes as I’m taking off
My first flight out of sense of time
In the lightness of my empty world

I swear myself in the name of logic
I swear myself to be afraid of you
I’ll sacrifice my dreams in the name of surviving
No more feelings on the race for the top
A race for the top...


from Days Of Alcyone, released June 27, 2013
