Sven B. Schreiber So, quite obviously, prog is alive and kicking in Mother Bulgaria! After purchasing Kalin Tonev's "Machine Years" some time ago, now I've got the pleasure of buying the latest work of his colleague Daniel Eliseev. The superb songs are inspired to some degree by the 70's, especially memories of "Yes" are triggered at times. By the way, Kalin Tonev's mighty Hammond sound appears on "Pandora and Epimetheus". And when did I ever hear a viola da gamba on a rock track? Favorite track: Hidden Voices.

Alter Ego 05:27
Alter Ego Night falls, no one calls, the road fades away I switch on the lights, speed up the engine, And allow the wind dishevel my hair, The car goes fast, the radio plays a song Which reminds me of your face and your brown eyes Rf I ask myself, if there’s anyone who cares about me, Can’t you see, you’re underestimating me, so many times Your tears make me feel so bad and I regret for All those years that I’ve spent in senseless fights Another day, another place, And so many broken fates to repair, I am the one, the chosen one, I will do all my best to wipe out the world’s injustice Rf Do you think, I spend my energy in vain, subduing destiny, Taking all the pain for me, but losing faith and ree Burn my wings and fall so fast, approaching Sweet release, finally I’ll rest in peace From the leaves of the trees I shall take the breeze, From rivers I’ll take the streams, From the stars in the night I shall take all the light, In the waves of the sea I shall throw my fear At the end, down on my knees In the flames of the fire I shall burn my desires.

Night Shadow 07:06
NIGHT SHADOW Most of the time in his life he crossed the line, In the name of righteousness, Burying his pride with no doubt, love was his guide, Day by day, in his way, with no home, Everybody left him alone, People considered him so weird, Nobody helped him at all, Nobody wanted him be near, Forced him to be a runaway, Hypocrites blamed his honesty Nevertheless he was pure, Coping along with travesty, He was so sure, he does the right, Rf He’s like night shadow, He’s my night shadow, Be the night shadow, That will set us free, Hello, night shadow, Be safe, night shadow, Good bye, night shadow, I’ll long to see you some other time, Changing the place every day, he lost his faith, Struggling deeply with his thoughts, But the good will and the love still remained there, Carrying on for so long, painfully restrained, Beautiful faces pass him by, Vanishing traces behind, Meaningless races with his time, Hold on the line and you’ll be fine! Parallel worlds are the ones we share, Up in the sky do you stare? After some time you won’t be there, So promise me you’ll take the care! Rf2 You’re like night shadow You’re my night shadow Be the night shadow That will set me free, Hello, night shadow, Save me, night shadow, Good bye, night shadow, You changed the world for me When all the hope is gone and dreams are all broken, So, please, try to carry on, keep your spirit strong, longer, And you’ll have to find a way, even if they say, that you ought to fail, Hey, you can take the chance, trust the perfect sense, throw away the trance.

Pandora and Epimetheus Verse In the darkest night, I saw her shiny golden hair. (female voice) Am I pretty enough? - she said. My mind was obsessed by a wish to touch her skin. (female voice) Am I sexy enough? - she said. I shall be your slave, but just tell me who you are? (female voice) Pandora is my name. Chorus You're whip for all the human beings. But what am I doing, why do I touch you? You bring only suffer and a pain, but I am fallin' in love....... Choir I will be cursed (x2) You will be cursed (x2) Verse 2 In that bloody game of fates, why the gods have choosen you and me? (female voice) We are so unwavering. You're so beautyfull, so strong, I'm just a man with no will, I'm so weak. (female voice) That's why love me and don't think! Many people have to die, their souls will be sacrificed.... (female voice) This is just God's vengeance. Chorus You're whip for all the human beings. But what am I doing, why do I touch you? You bring only suffer and a pain, but I am fall in love....... Choir Groans.... I will be cursed (x2) You will be cursed (x2) Interlude: Now, I am so deeply deaf for all those screamings. Now, we are so deeply deaf for all those screamings.

All the images and all the faces, All the fictions that I've left behind, Keep on haunting me like painful cases, Hardly fading from my careless mind, Have I lost my way or Still the dream obsess my broken consciousness ... I wonder can you hear these soundless voices, Whispering fairy tales of frozen skies, Fearless heroes and forbidden choices, Loving mothers singing lullabies, Rf. Have I lost my way or I pretend that I'm still dreaming, At last I finally found My broken consciousness ... What (are) you gonna say if it's all over, Seen through the distance of the ancient times, The dream is gone, you find that you've grown old, But still you saved the will to fantasize, And melt the chains of your selflimitation, Exploring feelings that you've never felt, Find the way to meet somebody, To understand you like no other,

Hidden Voices Look at the bright sun through braided hands, Thousands pictures appear, although your eyes tear, Thoughts drift in your mind, you can’t remain still, Summarize memories, feelings, Cover your eyes with my warming lips, Do you see what I mean when you’re sure I’m here, Maybe if you need someone to lean on No one else will be near Even if you say You can find your way There’s a price to pay Almost special day You must not delay Not a game to play Cover your ears with my fingertips, Hidden voices appear, making your thoughts clear, Find so many ways, which one to go through, Memorize all your fears, Follow my steps if you come around, Listen, feel what you hear, open your mind, dear, Looking insecure when you must be sure Criticize more than needed Even if you say You can find your way There’s a price to pay Almost special day You must not delay Not a game to play Hidden voices, bring you choices, when your own fears disappear, Look at the bright sun through braided hands, and no tears, Cover your eyes with my warming lips, I’m here, Cover your ears with my fingertips, think clear, Follow my steps if you come around, my dear, When you are gone I will long for you until, The call of my heart slowly fades away for real. Even if you say You can find your way There’s a price to pay Almost special day You must not delay Not a game to play Helpless in your way You’ll be lost again Even if you say You can find your way There’s a price to pay You must not delay Not a game to play Helpless in your way You’ll be lost again That’s the price you pay

A Song for You Your face haunts me, Your voice fills my ears, Your arms – soft breeze, Your eyes full of tears, So long ago yet so soon, I’m still wandering with you, And in the nights when I’m sad, You shine from the moon. Winter’s cold winds, Spring’s falls dry the seas Summer’s heat haze, Autumn – colorless, All seasons pass so grey, All reasons gone away, At last I get your embrace, The soothing touch of the stars. Rf. All the questions I shall leave behind, Asking myself - how could I be so blind, All the words I couldn’t say to you, Roam in my mind and spirit too, Wish I could just hear your voice again, But I know things’ll never be the same, I shall meet you there beyond the stars, The memory’ll always remain….
8.
The Journey Along Soon I shall find some extra room for myself, Space, I’ve to share with someone else, Anytime when you call me, Scared by the dream you could not bear, I’ll be there, Anywhere sadness meets you, Helpless you feel, it’s not for real, Patience is the only medicine, Take your chances, Get together your defenses, Take up your way out, Anything you can offer, Seems like I’ve had and don’t expect, Don’t regret, Speech Standing naked with yourself, A lot of pain you feel, Ready for your great escape, But I can’t take the deal, Signifying your intentions, Makes the situation clear, After your last transformation, You’ll belong to me! Secret words that you tell me, Always remain inside myself, It’s safe there, Summer nights, spent together, Warm up your thoughts in winter colds, Break through false interpretations, Explanations, Troubles in communication, Forget the bad times, Let my madness, Overtake you, My sweet embrace is what it takes To calmness, All we’ve been through helps us go on Resignation is a problem, Celebrate the day, When we both came along, Unifying the ways we took, Make the journey special to each other, I’ll always stand by you, Always support you, And all the love I have, Forever belongs to you Anytime when you call me, Scared by the dream you could not bear, I’ll be there, Anywhere sadness meets you, I’ll be the one to take you up, I’ll stand by you.
