Track Name: Autumn - Death
The mountains wear their mournful colors
Of a decaying life of a dying dusk
All life eventually ends
With dying howls

All living creatures seek a shelter
To hide from death’s cold touch
As the time passes the fight goes one

No noise sounds now
Beyond the rain
All life has gone
Nature is dead

Death opens the way for resurrection
Seeds dancing in the air
To fertilize the earth
To grand eternal life

Like the night leads to day
Death leads to life
Like the storm breaks the sunshine
Silence breaks by the sound of a breath

Never ending streams of water
Carve the soil
Formed by the fight
Of undying forces

The emptiness is covered
By mournful songs
Of ancestral times
Welcoming winter

No meadows blossom
No feathers swing
All life has gone
Nature is dead

Fall embraces the land
Death in the values
Smell of rotten leaves
Wet by the perpetual dew

Oh Mother
What have you done to you
Destroyed your vastness
Your greatness Your Splendor
The fallen children of a glorious past
We severed our bonds with you
Let us reunite
Once more
Track Name: Winter - Gestation
No meadows blossom
No feathers swings
All life is gone
Nature is dead

Nature has died
Veils of snow cover the earth
Birds cry in the silence
Winds echo through the leafless forest
All alone a weasel stands
Breaking the whiteness with its color

Fog shades the sun
As the time passes by
No colors shine
Beyond the white

Empty landscapes
Empty feelings
Distant cries
Of hungry wolves

No life left here
Is this the end?
So cold and white
So sad yet beautiful

This is not the end
It is a new begging

Silence before the storm
Darkness before dawn
Death before life
Gestation before the blossom

Leave behind the past
A new path shines
Yours to lead
Yours to defy

Death is gone
Gestation has followed
Birth will come
Track Name: Spring - Birth
Odors from nature
Make memories feel alive
Feelings of intimacy
Home at last
Born at last

The skies are full
Of souls flying high
Joyful songs
For those who hear
Colorful sights
For those who see

Time to be reborn
Out of the ashes
Of our own flesh
Time to be rejoiced
Out of the tears
Of our own sorrows

Light shines in the path
with endless curves
Choices we have to make
For our existence

I see the end
I shall enter
And face my fears

Smell the soil
Feel the vibes

A palette I see
In the vastness of earth
A feast I hear
In the greatness of the sky
Nature is calling
And I must go

Time to float the river of life
No one knows how it shall flow
The turns it will take
The hurdles it will face
The rocks it will curve
The seas it will meet
Track Name: Summer - Maturation
Years have past
Playful times
With joy and laughs

But the breeze of youth
Escapes from the veins of existence
Leaving nothing but peculiar feelings
Of guilt for what’s died inside

Like the nests
of fletching birds
once they fly away
Vacant
Decaying in time
Falling of the trees
Abandoned and wrecked
Destroyed

Enlightened to have gained wisdom
Though no light comes without pain
And nothing is created
Without destruction

Life as we know it was shaped upon disaster
And disaster will follow maturity

Is it the fate
That has long been written?
Or is it legacy
Crafted through the ages?

If only the end could be foreseen
Emptiness and decay through the land
If only the tremor could be felt
Shivering in the silence of loneliness

Like a faceless child in the mist
It’s the nothingness that would be felt
Realization is just the beginning
Maturation that comes with age

Or maybe have we grown old?
And decayed without knowing
