about

Recorded amidst the fallout of the next global zombie apocalypse, the EP serves as a soothing soundtrack to the end of civilisation and is sure to help lift the spirit amidst the oncoming tides of the undead.

Aside from the accompanying ambiance of Armageddon, the EP, recorded in front of the rapturous audience of a solitary passing tinker and his Border Collie, should be played at such a volume to repel lethal doses of radiation and toxic viral dust clouds.

Track Name: Emerald Eyes
Say Goodbye to me my Friend
Your time has come, You've reached the end
Your path is long,
Your road is far from here
And in a Breath the tempest cried,
You left the ground, you rode the sky
The reaper smiles and tosts to your dismay

Will you take me home?
Will you let me die or fade away?

Promises of Sorcerer's ways have left you cold, your mind astray
Your fairyland now colourless and grey
And now the land beyond the field, has turned to dust, your mind reveals,
Your emerald eyes, now black holes in the sky

Will you take me home?
Will you let me die or fade away?

And there he stands, upon the hill
His shallow eyes are watching still
Now I see that you might die
And now I see that so might I.
Track Name: North of the Wall
Snow lies like a blanket,
Frost covers every leaf,
Winter is here to stay
Or so we believe

Night draws in around us,
Ice hangs from every tree,
Winter will fall upon us
Or so we believe

Cold seeps all around us
Fire we never shall see,
Winter has taken a grip here
Or so we believe

Wolf loose on the hunt now,
Prey, lock doors in fear,
Winter has fallen on us
No sunlight welcome here
Track Name: The Snows they Melt the Soonest
O, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing;
And the corn it ripens fastest when the frosts are setting in;
And when a woman tells me that my fyace she'll soon forget,
Before we part, I wad a crown, she's fain to follow't yet.

The snow it melts the soonest when the wind begins to sing;
And the swallow skims without a thought as long as it is spring;
But when spring goes, and winter blows, my lass, an ye'll be fain,
For all your pride, to follow me, were't cross the stormy main
.
O, the snow it melts the soonest when the wind begins to sing;
The bee that flew when summer shined, in winter cannot sting;
I've seen awa lasses' anger melt betwix'd the night and morn,
Ah it's surely not a harder thing to tame a woman's scorn.

So bid me not farweell dear - no farewell I'll receive,
For you shall set me to the stile, and kiss and take your leave;
But I'll stay here till the woodcock comes, and the 'Martin takes his wing,
Since the snow aye melts the soonest, lass, when the wind begins to sing... to sing...
Track Name: The Circus in the Clearing
Time moves slow as you watch through the trees
Where the woodsmen and the jackals
Make songs for the queen
Now paths appear as the jester lights the lamps
Goes dancing through the darkness
With the moonlight in his hands
And will you stray from the borders to the fields
Play riddles with the night-born as they huddle in the leaves
And as you sleep, the clocks begin to stop
The seasons never change in the kingdom of the lost

Take my hand through the garden of blue weed
Glowing, swaying in the night
Leaves you chocking on the breeze
The clock tower above you
Chimes six bells for the sun
As the blind witch of the forest
Plays her fiddle just for fun
Now you try to return by the pathway through the trees
But the lamplights start to go out
As the jester takes his leave
As you dance on the water the piper plays his song
Were you ever seen again now the carnival has gone?
Track Name: Upon the Paths to Nowhere
Cast adrift by my forest rose
I aspied a maiden
She saw I bleed, so help me please
To find my way nowhere
You never were, you never are
A tower among the sadness
Oh no not I, I long to die,
Upon the paths to nowhere

Her sweet perfume no longer sweet
I poison to my senses
She bled me dry, so help me try
To find my way to nowhere
You never were, you never are
A flower among the sadness
Oh no not I, I long to die
Upon the paths to nowhere
Track Name: Orphans of the Sky
Somewhere over head, breaches the horizon,
Comes forth the savages of time
Somewhere far below lays a frozen people,
Drowned by the flooding of the light

But you wish you want to die,
All the darkness in your eyes,
And your brain

Now you’ve seen this all before
Devils knocking at your door,

For the orphans of the sky,
The orphans of the sky,
Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night,
The orphans of the sky,

Now you want to see,
Now you want to hear,
Sounds that have echoed long ago,
All this make believe,
All the time you suffered,
Clinging on to what you used to know,

But it tricks you in the end,
Puts the key back in your hand, again,
Never meant to fade away,
But the darkness will betray

For the orphans of the sky,
The orphans of the sky,
Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night,
The orphans of the sky,

For the orphans of the sky,
The orphans of the sky,
Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night,
The orphans of the sky,
The orphans of the sky,
The orphans of the sky,
Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night,
The orphans of the sky.
