[A personal note]

This was one of our oldest song, written in fact before any band was there. This is how most of the Lacklustre Mirror's songs were supposed to sound - before... well, before 'tigers came at night'...


Slow trance...
It's a succeeder of a deeper sleep...
Illusion Empress of Calm and Emptyness —
Who tells the visions from reality? —
Would never do now even the Wisest One.

Descend and cast down right into impending cold
Throughout moonshadows born by frosty shine,
Awakened lunatics are hiding from the Moon,
In rage behold her glowing in the night.

The daytime clouds are transmuting into ice
And Heavens are rising farther day by day
Thou paintest woods with all your brightest paints
Like a child with coloured chalk revives grey walls...

It won't take long before you wash this all away
Again, without regret like a careless child...

Autumn! Thine sweet breath — bitter poison streams in my veins,
And raise grey gloom from fathoms of my soul...
And make me feel time's running faster every moment,
Life's turning to an endless spin — —

Dance of fallen leaves,
Fading memories —
Fragrance of unsatisfied passions,

Childish soul oppressed,
Sprang beyond its place
Towards hollow colourless impression

Similar to the late autumn scenery...
Water and dirt, rocks and emptyness
What else I seeked? Whence has come that odd feeling
Of a great deceive, while I still hadn't known the truth —
And it is still obscure...

Wasn't that a dream... But some alien words I've heard
Those told that each of us is spinning throughout his life
In a awesome hall, full of windows and lights,
And in madness of motion a mosaic they arrange
We're condemned to imagine as life,
We are doomed to take as True Life...
