Just leave me here, I’m not afraid To live the whole night once again Between these walls Cold moon takes my spirit Striving to breath Shadows wander in the void Surrounding blackness So many frozen tears of freedom Melt away In this night of silence The night goes down for eternity Rivers of stars Flying to nowhere With no defence Just take my soul Away from this prison I don’t need to know who you are Will I ever be free from this endless wail? No matter what I do You rule my soul How long I can bear this fire? Dreaming to live again While I am still awake In this real nightmare I was hiding from the light In that world of violence I couldn’t see the dust in my eyes The mirror of my mind I was the mirror of my mind I could live my life alone In that world of silence I was the mirror of my mind The mirror of my mind The mirror of my mind credits

All the mystery we embrace Through this never-ending space Fall in with the stars Stretching particles and waves For that truth that we crave More is less than we expect when we think we’ve done right But it’s madness Oh so many words in vain All the choices we make The flame within us might be real Just fades away when we try to get closer and closer To the edge of black and white The greatest pain we feel In every moment that we live To see the grace between the space and stars Every foolish game we play Every fault we create The line in between hell and bliss Just disappears when we try to get closer and closer To the edge of dark and light The more we fail the more we get a chance to elevate We may refuse to see All those promises to break Among people that we face Just break the spell of greatness In the dark, in the light While waiting for the twilight The secrecy of mind and soul dwell forever Our loneliness can be closer It can be over Our loneliness can be over credits

about

NEW SINGLE "HEROES " COMING SOON!

"If you’re a fan of instrumental synth and progressive sounds that feel like they could have been written for the Blade Runner soundtrack or maybe a horror flick, then I guarantee you’ll love this album"
- Divide and Conquer - album review

"....made me want to dance in a creepy scifi dance party"
- Audiokite - Eleadyus review

"...but the one-man orchestra, Mauro Corbia, who’s based out of Berlin, Germany, doesn’t make just any old cliché’ soundtrack stuff. There are superb guitar sounds on “Tank” that sound very Prince or Nile Rogers inspired and a Pink Floyd-ish/David Bowie sound (a la his Berlin Trilogy days) on “Falling.” This last number also reminded me of something from the soundtrack to 28 Days Later, one of my absolute favorites"
- Divide and Conquer - album review

About "Departures":

The first time I saw jellyfish in an aquarium, it made a remarkable impression on me.
Passing by the glass, seeing huge, spectacular containers filled with colorful, exotic species, I expected nothing more than being able to break up my winter boredom by watching some tropical fish. Suddenly, out of the darkness, emerged something having no right to be caught behind a thick layer of a glass. Pale, slender creatures danced in a trembling light, moved by an artificial ocean current. Tender, yet strong in their tenderness.
This odd view of the jellyfish pushed me towards the thoughts of the darkness around them. How must it feel to be trapped in an infinite space, drifting towards an Unknown? How must it feel being a lonely soul following fate by a continuous movement, believing naively in destinations for all the departures and arrivals? Moving with a free will and meaning behind every movement made. How must it feel to travel through a background filled with stars and time without knowledge, not knowing whether the followed direction isn’t just another push of an aimless wave of overwhelming emptiness?
The simplicity of floating jellyfish. Their existence caught in an embracing silence. A terrifying banality of their movement lost in space around them
