The Unrepentant
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

The pale moon is hung above
Winds rage from the hill
Hopes buried in secret gloom
And hearts bound in fear

Watch how the unrepentant seeker
Finds comfort in this dreary course
He knows that his fate is given to a higher source

Forward never homeward
On and on towards vast horizons
Giving life a meaning
Forming words through enlightened thoughts
Till the road that he’s onto leads to the dream

Climbed through fog of blood red clouds
All laid heads to dream
And though faith has ceased to frown
Their agonies scream

But watch how the unrepentant dreamer
Steals mist above the midnight sea
And weaves a path as if no day’s been, or yet will be

Forward never homeward
On and on towards vast horizons
Giving life a meaning
Forming words through enlightened thoughts
Till the road that he’s onto leads to the dream





Right Within Your Heart
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Restless, breathless
I’ve shown you paths that link
Violent, yet so still and silent
Feelings emerge and sink

Stagnant pools of emotions
Against my will, all that I feel
Condemned to cease

Under the horrid veil you’re wearing
I know that penetrating gaze
And the scar right within your heart

Ageless, shapeless
Ways of a broadened scope
Pensive, and so apprehensive
Once quite refined with hope

Stagnant pools of emotions
Against my will, all that I feel
Condemned to cease

Under the horrid veil you’re wearing
I know the penetrating gaze
And the scar right within your heart
Through different eyes
Through a different aspect
you keep the fight against a truth
So overt, you can only accept





Let The Flames Grow
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Tasted times of bitter sorrow
Years of never-wearying love
Dark paths and lucent streams
By the dawn of new tomorrow
We’ll be found in worlds apart
Venture out to live our dreams

Each day is a hall of choices
Countless doors in a corridor
Just let your inner voices
Tell you what you’re looking for

March on even up against the wind’s blow
Keep your eyes straight ahead till joyful tears glow
To the past don’t you ever let dreams send you
Days cannot be re-spent but can re-spend you
Let the flames grow

Tasted times of inspiration
Felt the power of love’s might
Fairly shared pleasure and pain
If it’s any consolation
You have been a leading light
Felt no promise made in vain

And as is a play, so life is
We’ll aim for the leading role
No granted happy ending
When the curtain sadly falls

March on even up against the wind’s blow
Keep your eyes straight ahead till joyful tears glow
To the past don’t you ever let dreams send you
Days cannot be re-spent but can re-spend you

But as it’s said, it’s so much darker when a light is gone
than it would have been if it just had never shone





Virtues Of Humanity
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Power, belief and will
Virtues of humanity, abundant and scarce
Holy, godlike, divine
Borders of insanity, a blessing and a curse

Despite their genuine devotion
Faith appears to save no one

Even though we all know that our time is running out
Some of us still believe
God loves us all, though his doomsday’s upon us

Horror, tremor, dismay
Victims of normality, blind hope and despair
Feel me, hear me, believe
Reawakened vanity, so common yet so rare

Lost in bitter-sweet emotions
Apathy infects us all

Even though we all know that our time is running out
Some of us still believe
God loves us all, though his doomsday’s upon us

Faith's the ultimate fallacy
It's the substance of things hoped for
The conviction of things not seen





Sometimes
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Sometimes it’s not me; it’s just a vague fear
And a bleeding doubt that haunts me
It takes me over, gets me all out of control
That’s when I give it all and still I face the wall of your defenses

Sometimes I’m willing, to drift and wander
In the shadow of this feeling
Right out of balance, like a kite without a tail
If it could only avail, when all attempts do fail to break the fences

But all my hopes are trains
On condemnation’s rails

Steaming through the pain
I only seem to feign but never heal
Tried so hard in vain
Failed time and time again but now I feel
This is the final call

It won’t be easy to start a new life
Burying past times, burning bridges
Against the icy winds of sorrow and dismay
It won’t be easy but this is the only way
I have to deal with this

Now all my hopes are trains
On condemnation’s rails

Steaming through the pain
I only seem to feign but never heal
Tried so hard in vain
Failed time and time again but now I feel
This is the final call





Medusa
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

A chance to fly with broken wings
Deceiving dark illusion
Innocence is no excuse
When you ride the wind

Victimized by chaste desires
Endless wasted years
Things will never change; you always knew
With scars under your skin

Realize this wave has run its course
And draws you back in the deep

Evil in her eyes
Raging seas of lies
Breath in, scents of sin
Icy poisoned wind
For one more time

Dungeons dark and hollow fears
Tasting pure desperation
Bleeding thoughts can now perceive
Her cruel and vicious reign

Realize, this wave has run its course
and draws you back in the deep

Evil in her eyes
Raging seas of lies
Breath in, scents of sin
Icy poisoned wind
For one more time





Time Is The Enemy
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Moments falling in a shoreless sea
Bursting like a hurrying stream
Feed the past that builds your fate
Each success and each mistake
Shaped the life you live in

Time won’t care if life was ever fair
Won’t stare deep into your soul
And though time mends your heart for sure
Don’t you ever get fooled!

Time will kill you, will empty and fill you
Will make you rise just to make you fall
Life is changing, your needs are blazing
You’ve got to face what you fear the most
Time is the enemy

So, how did it get so late so soon?
Can it really heal the wound?
Did you get your thoughts aligned?
‘Cause time really won’t unwind
Neither rest a minute

Time won’t care if life was ever fair
Won’t stare deep into your soul
And though time mends your heart for sure
Don’t you ever get fooled!

Time will kill you, will empty and fill you
Will make you rise just to make you fall
Life is changing, your needs are blazing
You’ve got to face what you fear the most
Time is the enemy






On Skies Of Grey
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

You’re gone, but I know one gloomy day fate will bind us
Just like the rain binds with the sea
When storm wakes on skies of grey

Apart, out of these years
I can recall only moments
The ones that took our breath away are carved
On my soul’s brightest page as memories
Still breathing

Thoughts ranging near you
Hopes almost hear you
Within the sound of rain
Senses will hold you
Eyes will recall you
Until I come your way

I’ll leave; a hunted victim of my own vain pretenses
For all I am is trapped inside like a need
Suffering over my own lurking dread,
Screaming

(Empty
Nothing can change me
Hollow)

Thoughts ranging near you
Hopes almost hear you
Within the sound of rain
Senses will hold you
Eyes will recall you
Until I come your way






Baptised in Fire
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Living grants bitter days
But we’ve got to keep on moving
Reason fades and doubts decay
Hope can always do the soothing

Strong will is setting the stage

Aging grants lessons plain
Be the hammer or the nail
As the past fades into black
What is gone is never coming back

Restlessness burns in the eyes
Of those who seize the day

Time, time; this is the time
To unleash your dark desire
Stay blind to omens and signs
Baptized in blood and fire
Unleash the fury

Mourning grants hollow tears
Dying wishes left unspoken
Free your mind from shallow fears
Keep your promises unbroken

Restlessness burns in the eyes
Of those who seize the day
Where there’s a will,
there is always a way

Time, time; this is the time
To unleash your dark desire
Stay blind to omens and signs
Baptized in blood and fire





Shade of Hope
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

I used to have a vision, a tiny dream to dwell
Soft inner guiding voices, I used to hear them well
Since black fate came upon me, my thoughts are blind
Each dawn I get a bit more far from the light

Now I’m only yearning for a tiny shade of hope

Forlorn and forsaken, battling with the loss
Reason questions my undying aspirations
No allies beside me, all my friends are ghosts
Even my will to survive in this wrongful world

I used to have ambition, I was so versatile
My life had so many choices; at least for a while
These days my thoughts are empty, all gone awry
Just like the rest of me, my heart is dying       

Now I’m only yearning for a tiny shade of hope

Forlorn and forsaken, battling with the loss
Reason questions my undying aspirations
No allies beside me, all my friends are ghosts
Even my will to survive in this wrongful world

Fate’s kiss right on my skin
A game I cannot win
No time’s left on my hand
Hopes fail time and again
Life twists, turns to a lie
All lights darken and die






Dreams In The Dark
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

In search of perfection
A journey that won’t seem to end
Lords of the keep, twisting shadows unseen
Hold my destiny into their hands

My fateful wish breathes under translucent thoughts in agony
Will fills my veins and awaits deep within me
Lost feelings take over my mind’s control
Innocent and pure, as if I’ve been reborn

Haunted by dreams in the dark, scarlet flames so bright
I know there is no one to wipe out the fears when the morning comes
Those countless moments that sunk to the past and ceased
Left me enriched with what’s survived as memories

Road of misfortune
A pathway with infinite steps
Beaconing eyes, speaking words, forming lies
While my ambition silently wept

My fateful wish sneaks in as the ultimate hope wakes so strong
Senses unleashed, starving needs undiscovered
Mark the path of salvation and cleanse my soul
As if I’ve been reborn

Haunted by dreams in the dark, scarlet flames so bright
I know there is no one to wipe out the fears when the morning comes
Those countless moments that sunk to the past and ceased
Left me enriched with what’s survived as memories





The Awakening
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Your name’s on the scars I wear
Your blame’s on the trail I follow
I’m back on my feet again
But nothing can end all sorrow

Beyond grey oblivion skies
I’ll reach for my deepest yearning
Among fears and vicious lies
Desire’s a fire burning

Like a voice that wakes you from a dream
I can hear howling winds and echoes of a scream

I won’t sit and rust, I’d rather crush and burn
I’d rather spin and turn in this timeless dyne
Till your frigid eyes abandon their fantasies
Recall cherished memories, interpret the signs

Till your soul awakens from the dream

A storm echoes from afar
I cannot get back what’s given
As dawn lugs the morning star
My soul aims the vault of heaven
 
I know that each time I fail
There’s something inside me churning
But each time my will prevails
Desire will keep on burning

Like a voice that wakes you from a dream
I can hear howling winds and echoes of a scream

I won’t sit and rust, I’d rather crush and burn
I’d rather spin and turn in this timeless dyne
Till your frigid eyes abandon their fantasies
Recall cherished memories, interpret the signs

Till your soul awakens from the dream

Till the Awakening, the Awakening…

I won’t sit and rust, I’d rather crush and burn
I’d rather spin and turn in this timeless dyne
Till your frigid eyes abandon their fantasies
Recall cherished memories, interpret the signs

Till your soul awakens from the dream
Until your weary soul awakens from the dream
