Interior sufferance, and interior peace.
Exterior Peace, and exterior colmuness.

Dark clouds of fear, shade the fate called death, and the heart as pure as deep blue sky.
The faithless pity of a man with power, can be the base of the power of an empire.
If one can become insane, how easy it could be.
But fate dose not allow but death, in this mythological story.
We, living in the present, will recreate it.

History is already carved, as if it had already happened.
If one sees history as such, this story will start moving.
If not, we will weave a historical poem from the future.

Within the time and space created by music, we are just like shadows.
Absorbing light.
Floating in the light.
Our bodies disappearing in the light.
Each one wears the voice that comes from within our bodies.
To let the interior come out into the space.
They are darkness.
Invisible darkness.
Darkness absorbs darkness.
In exchange for peace, death deprives us of sufferance.
