2 | One Step Forward

2 | One Step Forward
C., an introvert and agoraphobic guy, during one of his countless days spent on the internet is dragged into another dimension in which, for the first time, he truly finds himself alone.

lyrics

C: One step ahead
Two fiery glows
A dark light deeply surrounds me
I’m falling slowly
Beyond my conscious mind
A false, unreal me
Is turning the key
Of a brown ancient door
I’m breaking into something new and
Where I am? Where is my lovely home?
Walls are burning , I can’t go away!
Now they are gone far from a child which an home can contain
Anymore, and he must go out

 

D: Hey, look behind you, there’s no way to escape
From this chessboard
You have passed
All your life
As in a lonely game
Don’t you wanna play with me?

 

C: One step more
I’m confused
For the first time I’m feeling alone
Where are my friends?
And where are my certainties?
And I must be safe in this fight
Eight pawns as my defense
And my play starts now!!!

H …! 3 …! I feel an insanity in me!
Black…! Limbs…! Tangling over my head!

D: Hey, look behind you, there’s no way to escape
From this chessboard
You have passed
All your life
As in a lonely game
Don’t you wanna play with me?

3 | The Black Cave

3 | The Black Cave
Frightened by this first meeting with the Death, C. is led to face his own reality and to think about the meaning of his existence.

lyrics

C: Looking through this game I see my life
Captive in the viewless hand of a sweet complaint
Obnoxious suns and heavy skies
Oppress my mind and make me feel
Safe into the dark light of my cave
But maybe is time to let these shadows go
And turn my endless fear into a shining hope
Blighted chains surrounds me and I can't go on
Lying on a chessboard, key of my salvation and pain

4 | Desmoterion

4 | Desmoterion
The game has begun and C. revives his first major trauma, responsible for his vision of the world and for the barrel which he built between it and himself.

lyrics

D: There was a first time
In which we met, my friend
A dreadful day with no return
And there was a stranger
With dreams and rough regrets
That from a castle rock ripped through the air

C: The match goes on
And my walls start growing up
I am losing all my ways to overcome

D: Can you raise the walls inside your head
Painting your whole life in white and black?
C: I've always lived just to misspend the despair, of my past
Erasing the footprints of a corrupted world

Looking down from my rook
creepy and reptant
Now I can feel them
Sneaking in my cracks

Is this utopia?
Is this misanthropy?
That with his black claws
Obscures my lonely faith
Pray and hope for your little world of slimy fears
Or try to break your walls right here!

D: Can you raise the walls inside your head
Painting your whole life in white and black?
C: I've always lived just to misspend the despair, of my past
Erasing the footprints of a corrupted world
Which is not mine anymore!

D: Can you raise the walls inside your head
Painting your whole life in white and black?
I've always lived just to misspend the despair of my past!

C. is about to succumb, but when all hope seems lost, emerges the memory of the only person who understood him.

lyrics

C: There’s a place where all the anger sleeps
Full of bright, crowned by silver leaves
There’s a place where freedom rests
Where fear turns into peace
She hold up my dreams
Inside her heart she keeps them real

But I must stay here
My soul is wrapped into tears
I cannot bring her in hell with me
Our fates will stay apart
I’ve lost the chance to live
In this vile world of glass
Why should I burn surviving in this cradle of thorns?

N: Is not darkness
What I see in your eyes
What I get from your smiles
There’s no way that you cannot take
Death is giving you a second chance

Take my hand
Let’s stroll along the trail of fate

C: Maybe it’s time to leave
I’ll wait your play!

6 | Metamorphosis

6 | Metamorphosis
In the middle of the battle, C. begins to undermine the main aspects of his existence, among which he finds his attempt to fill the void between him and the others through a barren virtual reality.

lyrics

C: Sitting in a black box of hopes
Walking without feet
Talking without mouth
We creep in this deathless circle
Will I ever see the end of all?
D: numbers and nicknames in your head, nothing in your brain
Millions of people on your way, no one in your heart

D: Suffocated in this fractal of apathy
Do your game and show me you’ve got something to give
C: I can’t do that
You can’t understand
D: do you really wanna die in misery?
Acting like a poor misunderstood thing
C: I can’t escape
From this life

D: numbers and nicknames in your head, nothing in your brain
Millions of people on your way, no one in your heart

C: Silver strings and cosmic sounds vibrating in my head
I look into her eyes to understand
Who am I to disappear
Into this game of parts?
Those game that bounds me
Clinging to my eyes
Guides me into the places of a never lived life
D: Don’t waste your time
And keep your game prepared
To mine
C: Please mother listen to me
I’m lost into this phobia and I don’t know how to be here
Will I ever see you again?
Will I ever see you again?
C: Silver strings and cosmic sounds vibrating in my head
I look into her eyes to understand
Who am I to disappear
Into this game of parts?

8 | Onirikon

8 | Onirikon
Just before the end of the match, C. revives the experience of a religion experienced through fear and self-alienation.

lyrics

C: Full of whispers is this night
Am I dreaming or is this real life?
I can feel the fear I had today
Crawling silently inside my veins
D: Don’t you be afraid of me
I just came to you to show you what is real
Death is not the real enemy
Freedom lies behind your greatest fears

C: They taught me how to hide into a dummy little world
Preaching how wise it was live waiting for death to come
Headlong they walk down under the shadow of the Lamb
No I, I won’t be there anymore, I’ll be free!

9 | Noctudromos

9 | Noctudromos
At the end of the battle, trying to defend the King, his last chess piece, C. realizes that indeed his game is not destined to have an end; from here he acquires a new vision of his life and its meaning.

lyrics

C: Did you have the feel
How in your life
Things happen in a while?
Someone comes close to my ear
Whispering words I’ve never heard

Have you ever been into a dream that
Changed perspective into your life
I’m feeling
Born to be born again!
“Come closer to me”

Here you see a little man who cries
Lost in self-pity and slaved by old feels
With rough regrets
Clinged along his back
So come closer to myself
So creEp, creep up on me!

Well, I’m the cause of my meaningless existence, of my broken dreams
I canned my mind, I’m lost, I’m blind, Death has remained my only friend, my only reason to fight
So come closer to myself
So please!
Fight for yourself, don’t stop believing

Have you ever been into a dream that
Changed the perspective your life
I’m feeling
Born to be born again!

As we walk into life, our dreams drag us into a neverending time
Then we float
Chasing what it always was inside our souls
Lost in this circle a truth revives
There’s no end in life
For the first time I feel alive!
