The ballad. Most bands, even heavy metal bands, have one. About figuratively blindness and maybe something else – I’m not quite sure myself.Zar


Blind forever / walking helpless around Oh, we are searching / for each other’s hands Listen wildly / for a stranger’s step Coming to lead us / from these frozen depths

– Chorus: – Who can tell me what the world was like? I’ve never seen it Heard the warnings, but we didn’t mind Some were crying Now we’re left behind And our eyes are dark…

I can see you / standing there in the night Cold and bitter / with your arms across As you’re turning / you open your eyes Pearls of blackness / flickering in the lights



Can’t imagine / somewhere on your own Through the darkness / you shall reach the sun Feel the colours / as you touch my face Catch my vision / now release your eyes – And there’s no more dark
