Prelude 03:11
Intro 01:01
Darkened 02:56
Slowly walking through a darkened forest, wondering how I spawned into this place. Resignation no option, that’s not what I am; no I’m not escaping, not quitting the game. And my challenge tonight is not to die, not give my blood to some creatures, but walking my way. No direction, no idea where to go - but I’m making my path as I’m cleansing my soul. Grubbing in my dreams - blackness and peace. Darkened Forest must be released from black creatures...
Dawn 04:31
Soon is dawn - the darkened sun rising, through the obscured horizon. Soon is salvation, the trepidation – fading, finally almost gone... Is it gone? Looking towards end, the dust – withering. Blackened are my hands, water – requiring. Freezing my feet, the coldness – lasting. Where is the end? Orientation – losing. Still some time to dawn, when the sun will rise. Now it’s dawn, the sun is rising, through the brightening horizon. My fear, my angst, is finally gone... Now it’s time of dawn, the sun is showing up. In the end the sun is rising, through the brightened skyline; maybe with some daylight I can find a path.
Moonlight 08:28
I thought I had seen the first rays of light, yet these woods remain oppressive and dark at night. These visions of glowing eyes in the darkness make me question my own sanity! I feel as if this forest has a grip on my mind, the lines between dream and reality twined - like a curse urging me to find the place where I can leave all this behind... The ghostly light of the moon will guide my way out of this deep and dark forest. Touched by the light, I feel the burden on my mind is slowly starting to fade... The dark creatures now giving way to spirits, dancing in the ghostly glow of the moon. The shadows of glowing eyes in the darkness flickering around a snowy dune. And the spirits, controlled by an unknown power, guiding my way towards dawn; I think, the path of my journey keeps going on. But I have to keep wandering, struggling through this eternal fight. In the distance thousands of colors emerge, falling from reflections of the moonlight. A light shimmering through the forest leaves, so subtle and pale yet with an eerie presence. The haunting eyes from the darkness still following my path through the night. And out in the night, I see the source of the light; but in this deceiving forest the end is not yet in sight.
Dream 09:03
I'm on my way into the unknown realms of darkness, snow and strange events. As if this place is not what I've been thinking of, not even sure if this ever ends... After all this way I now reached a place of endless joy and discontent. Bursts of silence sweeping through the forest where the river's floating down the land. From far behind rustling noise between the trees, the moss on the ground turning into black disease. I'm falling through the shadows of earth and in the darkened seas. I turn around - I'm lying on my knees. As the brightest light is falling down from the skies, and the slightest breeze turns into deadly storms of ice, the narrow path that keeps me clear is bouncing on both sides; with an owl on its left and the witch with kaleidoscope eyes. Torrents rushing down the once so silent land, demons from the dark crawling through the sand, the witch waddling over, rising up her hand - is that the end? The lights so dense they're piercing my eye, my inner body purely rendered empty by the dark spirit rising up into the sky - will I die? Ease coming over the land, just as the demons are starting to disband. The dark spirit's still glimmering and flickering around my blackened hand. And as the owl is landing on a rock, there's a feeling this might be the end of my walk; the river now shining bright, floating calmly through the night. A warm breeze spreading from a blooming tree, enrooted in this reality; a glade of peace and tranquility, buried in this forest so secretly. And with this vision in mind, I can feel the fears now fading away, a rising touch of ultimate tension, like I'm reborn in a new dimension. Eventually this forest appears to dissolve, leaving behind my memories of a struggle with the demons of night and unknown spirits from above. And as I'm wandering out, still wondering what this was about, I feel it still as a part of my mind, calling me from the nightly skies.
