ANGER Lyrics by Omar Gassama You know I've been suffering You could feel it deep down inside My toughness was crumblin’ I feel there’ll be no more light I burst into rage ‘cause my life is changed this world is not gonna change These are the times When my friendly smile Is a mask that is crumbling down So I’m gonna Seek for illusions of living a thousand lives Because I’m caught by my own delusion The rage is on and I’m gonna try to Seek for illusions ‘Cause patience is a lie And I can’t stop to think But purging the world and going down There’s no solution, I’ll never get to see the light my raving destruction I know I cannot win this fight I’m sinking deep and sure will become The painful wrath of my own My heartbroken tears will not help me now There’s no one, I’m all on my own So I’m gonna Seek for illusions of living a thousand lives And I don’t wanna draw conclusion Destruction is now all that I want to Seek for illusions carved under deep inside I’ve lost all control In darkness I will now drown Feel my anger now All my killing disease No common sense Unclear visions deceive My unconstrained life, this vicious circle never ends I won’t hold back now No turn away No coward ignorance I slipped into the unknown No more reason for me to hide behind the mask There’s no more suffering My anger soak deep down inside My toughness was crumbling I feel there will be no more light I burst into rage ‘cause my life is changed this world is not gonna change (no) These are the times When the friendly smile Is a mask that’s crumbling down Seek for illusions of living a thousand lives Because I’m caught by my own delusion The rage is on and I’m gonna try to Seek for illusions ‘Cause patience is a lie And I can’t stop to think But purging the world and going down So I’m gonna Seek for illusions of living a thousand lives And I don’t wanna draw conclusion Destruction is now all that I want to Seek for illusions carved under deep inside I’ve lost all control In darkness I drown I’m going down. _____

Bargaining 10:32
BARGAINING Lyrics by Omar Gassama, Endre Tarjányi What if the pain won’t sustain? What if I can make a change? Hope will born again… (Oh) Here I stand Near to a breakthrough To deploy the heart and build compromise It’s the very last chance I can hold A promise to fly against the sky This holy, healing bargain Is making me feel untied Without a clearer Path, my doubt will still arise In the mirror Strange reflections asking me It’s my only healer State of mind to reconcile All this grief that I evade to break the dawn, yeah A new day brings pain again Touch me with darkness of my fears Whether I obey? My mind tells Things so untrue To destroy the dark with false sacrifice It’s time to listen to the voice To find the safety to disguise There’s no will and no power To change this course of life I hold this feeling This emotional reprise That is how I will become safe and sound again Without a clearer Path, my doubt will still arise In the mirror Strange reflections asking me It’s my healer State of mind to reconcile All this grief that I evade to break the dawn This is not illusion You’re just a simple man Plans to make a change: The final cure in need Renewed my life It’s my lie The cleanest return When Fate is befooled I hold this feeling This emotional reprise That is how I will become down-to-earth again Without a clearer Path, my doubt will still arise In the mirror Strange reflections asking me It’s my only healer State of mind to reconcile All this grief that I evade to break the dawn My fate is clearer Still the doubt is by my side In the mirror My reflection’s asking me Is there a healer State of mind to reconcile All this grief that I embrace to break the dawn What if it's just a dream My chance now to redeem The loss that I am now Cryin' out, cryin' out What if it is a lie My mind will purify A soul that couldn't hide Burnin' out, burnin' out What if it's just a dream My chance now to redeem The loss that I am now Cryin' out, cryin' out This pain’s a compromise Cryin' out, cryin' out... _____

Depression 02:02
DEPRESSION Lyrics by Omar Gassama) Knowing the delicate nature of being, Knowing how quick it all can turn to ashes, Knowing how fragile a praised and perfect life can be... ...is not power. It is endless pain and crying... It means becoming utterly vain. Renders all that once I wanted to a dead and hollow wasteland. It turns light into darkness. Silent and painfully empty darkness. So that I know I never possessed anything. I am floating in an aching void. No one will hear my screams. _____

Acceptance 12:00
ACCEPTANCE Lyrics by Omar Gassama, Endre Tarjanyi Silent autumn trees They whisper my name In a dark-dark lullaby A cure to all the pain I am lying on the rain On the rain dampened leaves My cold heart has faded And my Fate is calling me My Fate is calling me Fate is calling me... Silent autumn trees Are whispering your name A dark lullaby is all that I can hear Nobody’s here to see me raindrops fall into my orbit and leak through the cuts On my surface pale and soft I gave everything My heart, my thoughts, my fire And then you left me broken To loose all desires I would do anything Just to get hold of the past Now it slowly sinks to the ground I can let go. And now I know: What if I just stop breathing Loss what makes me free… (Makes me free) Straining my heart Closing my eyes, set things apart This is my only way I’ve learned now how to ease the pain I find it strange as I'm looking back now that I couldn't hold back my rage. My mind is clear but it was a long way to get out of this cage Oh it was battle but a bitter-sweet one And now I’ve found peace in the world that I couldn’t belive in All those cruel times when I couldn’t bare the pain of losing something that was not in vain Burnt it inside out lost it all in a dark hue (in a dark hue) My brain’s been crystallized now it’s a calm relic I’m looking through Oh yeah – I can see the loss is true Cuts thousand wounds but it’s clear there’s nothing really I can undo I end my life I’m on the brink Of the last doorway to leave Let go my love Through all my pain I found myself (To believe) To believe in I can let go And now I know Going through all these STAGES (I’ll) leave it all behind. (All behind.) Straining my heart (Straining my heart) Closing my eyes It was the way I‘ve learned How to ease the pain. I can let it go My transition is silent (Ooooohh) As my last breath (As my last breath, yeah, ooohh) Hmm, I’m lighting up the depth of my soul I can let it go Let it go Let it go Just let go…. _____

about

Second album by the Hungarian progressive metal band, Dreyelands.

This album is based upon the quintessence of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’ 1969 book, ’On Death and Dying’. She described five stages of grief and loss, popularly referred to as DABDA. This acronym uses the first letters of the names of these stages Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. This series of emotions can be experienced by anybody who loses something. It can be any form of a personal loss, such as the death of a loved one, the loss of a job or income, the end of a relationship or divorce, drug addiction, incarceration or when your favorite team loses an important game… and even your own dying process.
