01. The in-Between Kingdom

Music by Mariusz Duda
(Instrumental)


02. Otherwhere

Music & lyrics by Mariusz Duda
I am becoming
In the realm of unknown
Beyond unending
Time
Space
And form

I was buried for rebirth
Casting off the old
Born into the spirit
From within I come

Escape from sorrow
No beginning
No end
Return to whiteness
The new loneliness

I was buried for rebirth
Casting off the old
Born into the spirit
From within I come


03. Suspended In Whiteness

Music & lyrics by Mariusz Duda
a) This Heaven
Soon after the awakening
I flew up in the air
I was a snowflake floating
Through my heavenland
As light as a feather
An ash
Like a grain of sand
From the white desert
And the misplaced time
I really need to find

I was a drop of water
From the pool of life
Since my burden's gone
I am the calm inside
This heaven makes me light

b) Don't feel alive
The sudden flashback stirs in my head
I see the boat
I see the ferryman
Recall my choice
Recall the words he said
So where the heaven am I now?
Where the heaven am I?
I don't feel alive
I don't feel alive
I feel nothing

My lips are tightly sealed
My mind is blank
And every part of me is paralyzed
The scattered bits of my consciousness
Are suspended in the whiteness
Another stage of my path

I don't feel alive
I don't feel alive
I feel nothing


04. Asoulum

Music & lyrics by Mariusz Duda
I can't move
Belts are too tight
Four bare white walls
Garish light
Awake!

Welcome to my travel berth
It's about time
To cleanse all those hurts
And return

I won't go
Cause I'm in the soul asylum
I can't go
Cause I'm in the soul asylum
I can't move on
Cause I'm stuck in the soul asylum
Please don't erase my name again

Something appears next to me
I follow it
I am led to the edge of bright

I watch as this place starts to change
It takes on all kinds of different shapes
Twisted screaming faces lash out from the walls
Fear permeates through my soul
I hear the moaning
Voices from my past
I'm sinking in the sea of returning cries
For good

I won't go
Cause I'm in the soul asylum
I can't go
Cause I'm in the soul asylum
I can't move on
Cause I'm stuck in the soul asylum
Please don't erase my name again
Not again


05. Limbo

Music by Mariusz Duda, Maciej Szelenbaum
(Instrumental)


06. Escape From ParadIce

Music by Mariusz Duda, Maciej Szelenbaum
Lyrics by Mariusz Duda
Thought I was healed
Cause I felt something different
When you took me above
To this place
Your pride
The Ice Palace stood
On the top of the mountain
You said
There are bars in the windows
But a great view outside

Help me
Help me end my lie
Cause I know I will not take it anymore
Help me
Help me end my lie
I've got a fear of heights
In this perfect world

It's time to fall

Help me
Help me end my lie
Cause I know I cannot take it anymore
Help me
Help me end my lie
I've got a fear of heights
In this perfect world

Thought I was healed
Cause I felt something different
When you took me above
To this place
Your pride
Everything there was so pure and ideal
You said
Look as much as you want to
Only try not to touch

It's my turn to fall


07. Transition

Music by Mariusz Duda, Maciej Szelenbaum
Lyrics by Mariusz Duda
Swallowed up in dreams
In an empty space
I'm being carried away
Into the light

It's all hazy around
I'm filtering through the fog
Heading into
The heart of what lies beyond all time

I'm being taken along
A course I've been on before
I see nests of souls
Fireflies

Passing slowly by
And rising up higher
Heading into
The heart of what lies beyond all time

***

I had a lonely life
In my safety zone
Somewhere on the edge of the world
I was searching for myself
Watching all the others' lives
Doing nothing with my own
All too soon the life was over
And in my sunset days
Without love
With no friends
I couldn't let you come and take my soul
So after all
The last thing that I saw
Were the waves crashing violently on the shore

***

The darkness washed inside me
I crossed over to the other side
As my eyes adjusted to the dark
I could distinguish distant pallid light

So I went in this direction
Trying not to lose my way
And when I achieved my goal
I saw the brightness
Clouds
And all those nice memories
All those nice memories
But this special one
I'd left
Behind in the shade
In my darkest fear
And If I don't go back
I'll never find myself


08. Gravestone Hill

Music & lyrics by Mariusz Duda
When they met after years
One day
They went to the hill
Where the old gravestone stood in the shade
Lonely
Admiring the city lights
They started a new life
Their love was reborn

The old gravestone
Forgotten by time
Remained in the shade

Winter came earlier
Than last year when they moved on
They returned
The whole family
Happy with memories and snow
Children were sledding
So joyful
They looked at them
Smiling
Embraced with love

The old gravestone
Forgotten by time
Remained in the shade
Alone


09. Wanderings

Music by Mariusz Duda, Rafał Buczek
Lyrics by Mariusz Duda
I am walking
Through the valley of the shadow of your name
It's been another after-life-time
Since you left me here this way
How about a little game of chess
How about we roll the dice
What can I do
Where should I go now
I want to look into your eyes

Drifting In the state of limbo
Condemned to idleness
Listen to the sound of distant memories
Passing through the white hourglass

Just wandering around

Looking for the way to my home
I've lived someone else's life
Waiting for the perfect moment
I've lost all track of time

What can I do
Where should I go now
I want to look into your eyes
Listen to the sound of distant memories
Passing through the white hourglass

In the middle of light and darkness
In the middle of bright and shade
I was trying to avoid your kiss
I was trying to escape

Now I'm the soul
Banished to everlasting wanderings
