The New One 02:56
THE NEW ONE Something crack you and you’re losing control Something inside you has taken over your soul?! A new identity, the one that you stole The same old destiny, the same closing doors THE ENEMY / IDENTITY THE ENEMY / MY DESTINY Confusion never grows old.. I need a new one.

Mute 05:28
MUTE Can't escape this feeling now It's useless to resist The well is dry, the tree is bare It lingers & persists Go deeper every time - You're searching for more ways The mountain's high to climb - It turned into a maze (Deeper, deeper every time, deeper & it's hard to climb) I look to the other side - I try so hard to decide If starting again today - Can take all this pain away Welcome to the age of clones The era of disgust Feeding on the flesh & bones Of giving and of trust The recipes are known - All subtleties are thrown You're speaking to deaf ears - Wasting your breath & tears Feeding On the flesh & bones,Feeding,feeding as it grows... I look to the other side - I try so hard to decide That starting again today - Will take all this pain away I need to believe in this - That somewhere a life exists Where labor will bare its fruit - When I'll be no longer mute I'll be no longer mute...

Technicolor 04:45
TECHNICOLOR Tous installes devant la tele En grignotant canapés sur canapes Pas de problemes quand les baisers se dechainent Pas de chaine a changer, mais sortir la chienne La main qui pend negligement Caressant la moquette et la fille sur l'ecran Pas de problemes pour lui dire je t'aime Coup de feu dans le haut-parleurs. Attention on degaine En perspective assise a mes cotes Pas oublier de sortir et puis de saluer Et sur l'ecran quand elle me fait des signes L'oeil allume je lis entre les lignes C'est un programme unique en couleurs Un programme unique, toutes les heures C'est un programme unique en couleurs Un programme unique en Technicolor

HEAD ABOVE THE WATERS In a pool full of knives, I raise the levels of the waters With my blood and top it up with tears I try to swim against it, but it feels so thick and whirpooly I stand in the centre, swallow it all And drink it all inside of me…drink it all inside of me Inside a pool of knives, the reality It’s eating me alive, oh inside, The levels make my vision turn so moisty and wet It’s so hard, so much pain While I’m trying to keep my head above the waters Trying to keep my head above the waters Trying to keep your heads above the waters So much pain, it’s so hard While you’re trying to keep your head above the waters...

MECHANICAL BUTTERFLIES Looking at the shadows Pacing right besides' me And they look familiar as they pass me by I swear I know their faces The names I can't remember I've let myself forget them 'Cause it's all a lie Marching around, running around I'm the hunter - I'm the hunted Oh oh oh Fear in my eyes - fear in your eyes Near is the end When we are all defeated Still looking at the shadows Pacing right besides' me And they're so familiar as they pass me by Yes I know their faces The rest I can't remember I made myself forget them And it's all a lie Is it all a lie? Was it all a lie? Marching around, running around I'm the hunter - I'm the hunted Oh oh oh Fear in my eyes - fear in your eyes Near is the end When we are all defeated

Emptiness 04:40
EMPTINESS What are words worth, when there's nothing in them but emptiness Vacant sounds produced by mouths, just meant to impress... For those so prone, thirsty for some hope Decorated declarations send them down the slope I don’t care for lies In any form or size Last time that I checked reality I saw nothing but demise It's not for me to say What kind of a display Is put in-front of us, in anyway We'll live by the day….. I don’t care for lies, in any form or size….

Machine 04:02
MACHINE I have a machine for drying and for cooking and for flying I have a machine to make this sound… I have a machine for loving and for building and for driving Even a machine that makes me scared I have a machine that makes me big that makes me short that makes me tall That makes me happy, makes me sad Wakes me up, puts me in bed I have a machine for lying, crying a machine for dying I have a machine and the machine has a machine I have a machine for stealing - Healing a machine for killing I have a machine and the machine has a machine, and the machine has a machine….

Soul Stealer 05:45
SOUL STEALER Soul stealer is locking me away He tells me to convey every breath to him Soul stealer is wrapping me with gold He’s tightening his hold of everything I have Soul Stealer Cry, the eagle in the sky Can feel the air is thickening it’s coming it will fly Straight down to me Crawl, the snake down in the hole Wrap yourself around his neck & take him back to hell The Soul Stealer Dream killer, he waits for you to fall He hopes that you will call out, desperate for help Soul Stealer consuming you with dread Lies next to you in bed, he will not let you go Soul Stealer Cry, the eagle in the sky Can feel the air is thickening it’s coming it will fly Straight down to me Crawl, the snake down in the hole Wrap yourself around his neck & take him back to hell The Soul Stealer

Desire 04:12
DESIRE A chance presents itself you cannot pass Grab it with both hands and grab it fast Such opportunity appears but once Have it! own it! make it yours as last How beautiful it shines it blinds your sight You'll stop at nothing this is worth the fight Destroy whatever keeps you from your goal (Your soul…) The traps are set the bate bleeds in your hand The hunt begins you storm ahead Steered and thrown consumed by fire Helpless in the arms of your desire… desire Oh can it ever really be enough? Will you ever look at the full half Don’t lose your time delay is your sworn foe Now listen to me take it, have it all… The traps are set the bate bleeds in your hand The hunt begins you storm ahead Steered and thrown consumed by fire Helpless in the arms of your desire… desire

BROKEN MIRRORS Melt, cool, shape again, Crystals bursting out of grain Stain the surface with a shade, Open strong then let it fade It reflects, it rejects, Smashes into pieces Resurrects memories, That time never releases Melt, cool, break again, Throw the pieces in the rain Watch your dream burn up in heat Broken Mirrors at your feet

OPEN EYES (DIGGING SOULS) I was fearless Changing by the atmosphere of sounds But now I’m skinless Naked in the rain I dig the ground I’m digging souls I’m seeing faces Faces that I’ve never seen before Their screaming voices Tell me things I want to hear no more I’m digging souls… I’m digging souls

about

“Broken Mirrors” gives you the dreamy & seductive sound of Sophya; dreamy guitars, smooth bass lines, analogue synths and drum machines. Together with the warmth and heavenly voice of Sonja this results in a unique combination of Dream Pop and New Wave.
