Resolve to Remake
The Darkest Sun
The Pull of Plexeus
Save Our Ship
Under a New Cloudy Sky
The Brightest Sun
Staring the Abyss


This is the untold story of our ancestry. A painful journey of survival in the majesty of cosmos, but also a delicate introspective about the human nature. When these two worlds collide, something new emerges. Hope, a mission and a destination.

Track Name: Caves of Steel
Verse 1
Look around and see
Is this everything you want to be?
Fate does not look bright
Under this cold dying light
We will fear the night

Verse 2
Under these caves of steel
Our lives keep turning the wheel
We face the consequence of our past
We know this can’t last

Won’t you see the world how it is
And stop believing in
A past life long gone
We don’t even know why
You see the world how it is
And stop believing in
A past life long gone
We don’t know why
Track Name: A New Beginning
Verse 1
I am the one
Who left my own land
Through the void and against
The darkest omens

After all these years
Dreams were paid with tears
And after all the struggle we are

Verse 2
I wander in loneliness
Through this endless nothingness
The sorrow of the regress
After all that we have passed

(The end is approaching fast
After we arrived at last)

For so many years of darkness
No one ever heard a sound
Chances give rise to a new hope

A new humanity
Is rising constantly

Anywhere that I roam
Nothing is all I can see
Growing the seed is the key
This is nothing like our home
And nothing is all I can see
This is all that's left to be.

Verse 3
My homeland.
My pride.
My two worlds now collide.

The shadows moved on.
With me, by my side.

If the dusk we’re now on,
Is the same that we ran of
The sun won’t shine.
