about

Dasein (German pronunciation: [ˈdaːzaɪn]) is a German word which literally means being there, often translated in English with the word "existence". It is a form of being that is aware of and must confront such issues as personhood, mortality and the dilemma or paradox of living in relationship with other humans while being ultimately alone with oneself.

The time has come when we are happy to present you "Dasein” - our long-expected album.

It took us a while to make this record, both in terms of music composition and recording process. A lot of musical fragments were composed, rethinked, changed and re-recorded. We hope all that was not in vain.

Track Name: Origin
Sleepy sunsets submerge his face,
Stone-cold glances filled with bathos.
Those weary smiles and dulled senses
Will sail into the misty waters.

You’re looking away in embarrassment,
I ought to put all my cards on the table.

Here is my nature, all my essence in it
Don't even try, this is the nature of mine

Now
I know, here is the truth
This
This is my nature

I
I know, here is the truth
This is the treason of mine


And now I’m home again.
The place I came from,
Which I belong to,
Where everything began.


Calm down your talent of being right
And drown in the warm sea
Sleep in peace, godlike child.
You are still so damn imperfect.

It was meant to be a game.
But now it turned into a battle.


And now I’m home again.
The place I came from,
Which I belong to,
Where everything began.
Track Name: My Appeal
I love it how you, faceless shades,
Look down upon me in indulgence.
Please, carry on and show no mercy
You’re stretching out your hand.

Don’t take your truths as universal.
You are dead wrong.
Tomorrow we might switch the roles.
You’ll be in my skin.

In my skin
You will be

Just leave me alone, it’s all I want.
So far.


You represent your good intentions,
But truth is that
You’re scared out of your mind.
You’re afraid to have someone around.

To have someone around.

In my skin
You will be


Just leave me alone, it’s all I want.
So far.
Track Name: Machinery
Fixed stars are watching,
Through leaden silence,
As the history repeats itself.
Gears are rotating

And inscrutable machine
Got the works again.


Prison inside your mind
Inside, inside you
And it will defy you
Don’t let it take control!

Prison inside your mind
Inside, inside you
Don’t let it defy you


Nothingness turning into everything,
In a fraction of a sencond.
The well-made machinery
Is working like a clock.

Without interventions
Without any reasons.
Without complication,
Without any treasons.


Prison inside your mind
Inside, inside you
And it will defy you
Don’t let it take control!

Prison inside your mind
Inside, inside you
Don’t let it defy you


I am, I am the pinion.
I am the objective and cold.
When the nihility gets tired,
It’s gonna lose it all.
Again.
Track Name: Voyager
Every time we watch this world
These times and this lots of cultures
We just want to understand
Why you fail to live like you want

When your soul sings
Or happy tears wash your face
We lead you on the path
High into the skies

We just want to understand
Why you fail to live like you want

And when you fly, not walk
And have the one to live for
We lead you on the path
High into the skies

We just want to understand
Why you fail to live like you want

Fight for the sacred law
Are on the new era’s dawn

Nothing but mean wishes
Nothing but self importance
Nothing to lose anymore
All is lost

Something is wrong in the world
Something has rotten here
You need to look up
There is something more

We just want to understand
Why you fail to live like you want

Fight for the sacred law
Are on the new era’s dawn
Track Name: Chikhai Bardo
Water transforms to fire, fire transforms to air
Natural transitions send the warning of death


When the fire dissolves in the void around
It is time for me to enter Chikhai Bardo


Vertical path of light
The mind light enlightenment
I’ll hold on to this light

And will become
pilgrim in the endless sea
of emptiness

I’ll hold on to this light.
Hold on.
Hold on.


The law, like heaven sustained by the light
I call out the swastika merging with you!



Light as a feather, alone I drift freely
I will be passionless in the face of everlasting pure light


When the fire dissolves in the void around
It is time for me to enter Chikhai Bardo


Vertical path of light
The mind light enlightenment
I’ll hold on to this light

And will become
pilgrim in the endless sea
of emptiness

I’ll hold on to this light, to this light.
Hold on.
Hold on.


Everlasting
Pure light
Embracing
Chikhai Bardo
Track Name: To Those Born Many Times
The whole life is full of pain
and endless suffering
Relationships are just mutual
pointless accusations

Every new man
sets off on the path of
disappointments
Our multiple
Karmic debts
Transit from life to life


Day by day, life flows like a dream
But don’t you understand this is all your fault
I speak to you,
Those born many times
But don’t you understand this is all your fault


Accumulation of useless things
as a purpose of life
Desire to be the first
Result of competition

When the human’s path ends
We will exhaust
the need for desires
We will become
integral godly beings
Who turn Samsara wheel


Day by day, life flows like a dream
But don’t you understand this is all your fault
I speak to you,
To those born many times
But don’t you understand this is all your fault


Die to be free!
Die to be free!
Track Name: The Great Oxymoron
The hollow creation. You thought you got lost.
Among constellations you look for your place.
And you’re lost indeed. As long as you wish so.
Among constellations you look for your place.

You’re seeking what you’ll never grasp.
Because there is nothing to understand.
The answers are the questions, anyway.
There is nothing to comprehend.

The hollow creation.
The hollow creation.

Groping about in the dark
You breathed life into thousand things
There is nothing to understand.
Remaining a lump of Clay,
Staying beyond the void.

All you can see is a Great Oxymoron.
Cause we exist till the world lies in us.
Too simple to realize.
Too simple to see.

The hollow creation.
The hollow creation.
