Dark, is the scenery from within Black, is the mist I am walking in Far, in a shadow of a pyramid Lost, doesn’t matter what I did Internally - eternally, there wasn’t any light to see Light, like your hair shining through Kiss, that I wanted to give to you Love, like I never knew You are my true love - my first true love You are my true love - my first true love You and I are the same, the core that we share There, like a pillar of light you were, there’s no end My first true love, my true first love My true first love, my first true love White Shadow with glowing hair My first true love Kiss you wanted to give to me We are here for eternity

Watching the sky Eating a pie and lying On the grass Hearing the joy Reaching my toy to join Through the glass Growing up fast Closing my past at last Please let me pass! No warning The scorching Begins with hunt Go out to the front! Come little closer Move little closer, my friend Let me take over It’s recommended, you know Watching you over! Look all the wonders in here Think all the secrets you hear Overexposure! Nothing to fear, be strong in your fate I have feeling it’s going to be great Winning you over! Come little closer Move little closer, my friend Overexposure! They will forgive me God will forgive me for this Watching you over! Like it was done all before Like it is done only more Overexposure!  Black without blinking Full open misty eyes, I am sinking Back without thinking, ho ho ho Easily got me where he wanted to go Black without blinking Bond over misty eyes, I am tied in Without knowing Who threw away the key I am trying so bad I am crying so sad, help me Brake away from this prison sell Make away from this living hell The shell build by Daddy Black without blinking Blocked from my misty eyes, not receiving Any healing This is not what you said it would be I am trying so bad I am crying so sad, help me Brake away from this prison sell Make away from this living hell – living hell Brake away from this prison sell Make away from this living hell The shell build by Daddy It is impossible to imagine what it’s feeling like When you’re out with the other children playing hide and seek Flying a kite It is impossible to imagine what it’s feeling like When you’re loved without exceptions and you’re whole, secure and watched for life Since you’re born It is impossible to imagine what it’s feeling like When you’re free - from the norm  Done with the preaching Done with the praying, you are Scars from the teaching Beating will get you as far Overexposure! This is the God’s High and Low This is the God’s will, I know Overexposure! Black without blinking Full open misty eyes, I am sinking Back without thinking, ho ho ho Easily got me where he wanted to go, oh no Black without blinking Dead blind misty eyes, I’m not seeing I’ve no feelings Black Mist suffocative sea I am trying so bad I am crying so sad, help me Brake away from this prison sell Make away from this living hell – living hell Brake away from this prison sell Make away from this living hell The shell build by Daddy It is impossible to imagine what it’s feeling like When you’re out with the other children playing hide and seek flying a kite It is impossible to imagine what it’s feeling like When you’re loved without exceptions and you’re whole, secure and born free from the norm

Working the ground, it’s beautiful it’s meaningful and it’s good Bustle abound, gardening with everyone for our food Living the life, successfully in company like the ants Enjoying the plants, materially - aesthetically How many you got, is not the lot, the secret of the success It’s all about love, the love for work, the selflessness If everyone would, be satisfied with a piece of cheese and bread I know that I should, be satisfied be gratified You are one of those truly chosen by God You are serving Eternal Truth Seeking all my youth Something unreasonable Something infinitive, ineffable Hearing these sounds, high harmonies with deep and mystical bells Sacred sounds, a Serenade of Angels In to the night, in to the garden and up to the skies, me invite I see now the light, the portal - I’m immortal! You are one of those truly chosen by God You are serving Eternal Truth Feeling it right through Something intangible This is bliss unexplainable This is bliss unspeakable Down to the river, down with the pathway, steep and deep Down to the river, down with the setting sun to sleep What is this silence, space and peace Silence, space and peace Like the whole world is waiting for me Like the whole world is wanting to see Humming and buzzing, wind and wuthering Black distant pillar whirling Black Monk closer now he’s coming faster how He’s passing by me smiling by me smiling I’m feeling joy, I’m very happy Happiness all day and night It cannot be right, I’m getting shabby It’s filling me up, it’s nothing but Natural – supernatural? There’s no place for fear, ‘cause I’m not hurting you dear Hurting you dear, no place for fear Fearing what will happen now when I’m “cured” Lured in misery In mediocrity Oh what cruelty “A thousand years ago a monk, dressed in black, wandered about the desert, somewhere in Syria or Arabia. Some miles from where he was, some fishermen saw another black monk, who was moving slowly over the surface of a lake. This second monk was a mirage. Now forget all the laws of optics, which the legend does not recognise and listen to the rest. From that mirage there was cast another mirage, then from that other a third, so that the image of the black monk began to be repeated endlessly from one layer of the atmosphere to another. So that he was seen at one time in Africa, at another in Spain, then in Italy, then in the Far North. Then he passed out of the atmosphere of the Earth, and now he is wandering all over the Universe, still never coming in to conditions in which he might disappear. Possibly he may be seen now in Mars or in some star of the Southern Cross. But, my dear, the real point on which the whole legend hangs, lies in the fact that, exactly a thousand years from the day when the monk walked in the desert, the mirage will return to the atmosphere of the Earth again and will appear to men. And it seems that the thousand years is almost up....According to the legend, we may look out for the Black Monk today or tomorrow.” Congratulate me, I’ve lost my mind - lost my mind so it seems Join mediocrity, if you want to be “well and healthy” Some have greatness, to achieve things that change the course of the world Unlock and be whirled, with the wings of madness You are one of those truly chosen by God You are serving Eternal Truth Seeking all my youth Something unreasonable Something infinitive, ineffable Feeling it right through Something intangible This is bliss unexplainable Indescribable – intangible This is bliss unspeakable Look to the river, black distant pillar whirling Look to the river, Monk with amazing speed arriving What is this silence, space and peace Silence, space and peace Calling out youth and bravery Calling out life it’s all beauty Humming and buzzing, wind and wuthering My mouth red blood is flooding Black Monk whispering, why stopped believing in You genius die in smiling die in smiling

Finally, the switch for reverse Could be worse, start a new life instantly It’s coming from outside but it’s turning your inside, out It’s growing from inside but it’s showing your outside, in Ideally, you have no regrets Take your secrets, and this life ends peacefully It’s coming from outside but it’s turning your inside, out It’s growing from inside but it’s showing your outside, in It’s coming from outside but it’s turning your inside - out It’s growing from inside but it’s showing your outside - in Endlessly, the Dark Passenger Cruel Avenger, waits in the shadows silently It’s coming from outside but it’s turning your inside - out It’s growing from inside but it’s showing your outside - in “Demons suffer in Hell, you know.”

about

”In an era when the mass consumers relate to music with a passive dumbness, skipping the tracks that they don't dig within the first ten seconds, it's respectful that there's still music makers who treasure the challenging concept album as a form of expression. Even more respectful is to find music makers who have been able to fit creeping madness into a musical outfit. There isn't too much progressive rock with a splash of gothic made in this world.” 8.2.2014, Kalevi Heino -Imperiumi.net

about

Contemporary Dead Finnish Music Ensemble Helsinki, Finland

CDFME is a musical community with sole purpose to bring good music to the world.
The Ensemble was born in a year 2000 out of the need to bring back some of the more ambitious and progressive music that had to go literally underground in the 1980’s-90’s.
The music is intensive symphonic rock with lots of room for air, melodic and cinematic, progressive without being pompous in a needless manner.
