Outer space the final frontier To travel light years, volunteer An endless silent space to explore We’ll boldly go where no one’s gone before
How Wrong 04:21
I tried to be your friend, I couldn’t play that strategy You think no-one loves you How wrong can you be?
Dance the night away, flyin’ to the milky way Home- a million miles away, I sing my cry of love for you
While there’s a chance, you’ll fi nd your afterland Still there’s a chance, you’ll need a helping hand
You never looked over your shoulder You never thought you would get older When you can see right from wrong A lifetime seems so long
Warchild 05:28
Don’t forget the child you were Without care he won’t last long Please forget the man you’ve known, he is dead and that’s a fact
We’re walking on thin ice, gonna lose this paradise When 999 hits the wall, the axe is gonna fall Once upon a time this was Civilization number IX
The long awaited “end” of the Mayan calendar is here. Some fear that 2012 will bring a cataclysmic end for mankind, while others anticipate a moment of expanded consciousness and world peace. Maybe extraterrestial visiters in Chariots of Fire will open the Stargate... Or is it a fundamental misunderstanding of the Mayan calendar and all meaningless hype?
Never got a chance to say a real goodbye So long, so far, high above the sky Even when we cry, I’ll sing this song of mine To comfort me
The local soon becomes the global - I talk and walk and you hear every word and the global soon becomes the local - Just give it some electrifying dope Oh, iPad I love you so much!
You know these are the golden days Freedom to say anything you want No one will stop you cuz nobody’s listening Lost in a golden haze So golden, so much so fast A chorus a billion voices deep Compassion disguises personal gain This golden day, enjoy it while it lasts!
When all changes come and pass I say the best years of my life fade away All the green leaves make a brand new autumn And the winter of my life arrives But every exit is an entrance to somewhere else!


Enjoy it while it lasts is riddled with searing lead guitars, virtuosic synths, and a lot of complex layers of instruments from all over the world. Musically it is progressive rock, but definitely has a lot of melodicism and accessible hooks to the point that you could almost call it progressive pop.

After raving reviews, interviews and comments in magazines, internet, radio attention and world wide sales, I thought it's time to share it with you on Bandcamp as well.
