Track Name: 1 REMAIN IN LIGHT - Dead Alaska
Values of today / the insanity daze / are already / at the gates of our will
Walking through the park / the arranged serenity /
cuts the wrists of / all our urban decay

Semi-dead in suits / with a stare like a pain / wake me up / or am I just out of line?
Ashes from the North / show the size of it all / halls and waiting /
wires and numbers delayed

Ηistory in vain / laughing somewhere away / grimy flakes of dust /
through signs of success
Immigrants are bought / by the new Pharaohs /dogmas and new loans /
see the story of man

Desert and the wind roaming over the sea /
See the wave of change, cash & crash & a flash/
Motion-pictures on a screen far on dead Alaska.
Track Name: 2 REMAIN IN LIGHT - Burning Stage
Real or unreal it seems to be the same / tragically my conscience now I have to blame
A concrete hell deserted anger dominates / a blood shed scenario of tormented fates
Anguish and loneliness elements of fear / a freaky burning stage seems to be so near
A sea of darkened colours my heart’s painted black
The main actor collapses unable to react
Nights of endless torture nights of despair / into broken mirror my destiny I state
Brutally awakened I face reality / the purified remains of my sanity

Deadly dreams a broken heart /deadly dreams stabbed and ragged
Track Name: 3 REMAIN IN LIGHT - New North
Daydreaming in the half-light / Hazy thoughts of current state
Down below hear the city / Humming endlessly in vain
A billion wired conversations / Losing purpose on the way
Hear the news from old Shanghai / And statistics of a change
Permafrost for all the senses / Empty stations in the East

I’m searching through the wire for a new meaning
I fail to understand what it means to have virtual friends

Weather forecast for remoteness / Chinese cargo’s sail through ice
Read a book about tomorrow / And the shadow of a drought
Trading copper down under / Selling styling from the north
Mountains standing where they used to / While the numbers multiply
See the old world rapid crumble / Learn the patterns of the storm
Track Name: 4 REMAIN IN LIGHT - Subconscious Lust
Ethereal objects vanishing memories /pagan dance subconscious lust
In desert internal plains / that’s where the obscure is hidden
Far away from digital graveyards / beyond your pathetic virtual reality
Has surpassed your strangled dreams / has vanquished you untold desires
Unnatural shadows empty visions / hellish nights blood stained idols
Broken promises immature oaths / horrifying battlefields all doomed and gone
Monuments made of tortured flesh / plastic heroes sodomized by their spiritual fathers
Cold eternal darkness that’s where they ‘re hidden /mayhem of sheep
defeat of the unchosen

Fear and pain can’t you see / total death all around you
Track Name: 5 REMAIN IN LIGHT - Approaching Troy
Instrumental track - no lyrics
Track Name: 6 REMAIN IN LIGHT - Poem in Sepia
mmersion in light / despite the pouring rain / The warmth of my mind /
in this cold white space
An arcade of might / streaming out of pain / The peace that you find /
when you quit the race
Immersion in light / in this darkened world / impressions and dreams /
blurry through the haze
The splendour of frost / on a winter’s dusk / a stare down the lane / soft sound of the rain

Reflections of youth / in the pure white snow / a shimmering ray / on the morning dew

Aversion to fight / mind forms that you must ban / Insistence upon /
the texture of our dreams
The echoes of thoughts / revolve around the sun / The aura of Zeus /
breeds the internal beams
Disperse of all fear / but don’t forget to breathe / Just open a sense /
at this bright new realm
All sorrow must go / in the aftermath / The moon’s standing still / your powers all agleam

Connections of truth / embrace the afterglow /
The haste’s immature / near is a life so pure
