Pie Progressive?? Not even close. It is a reasonably good rock record though. The band channels its inner Rush on my favourite song. Favorite track: A Farewell to the Heart.

Deep in a thick of trees labyrinths lie beneath Canopy chokes off the mid-day sun Hunter and hunted you squint for a better view Fear and opportunity making you run Take a Turn the Corner your Pray for Light the Weigh the next Step into the Trapping You're game Victory, sweet and fleeting Just to survive, make it alive Victory, passion bleeding Predator, prey - you are both every day Your stealth and your strength are your life Silent as the wind blows something in the shadows Is it that which you fear or your wandering mind? Driven by will to be Drenched in anxiety Vow to escape from the noises behind

Break You 03:50
Don't want to talk about it What does it matter if we disagree? Don't want to fight about it Some things are better if you let them be And I don't want forgiveness Because I've always done the best I could Go on and plead unfairness; I'll simply claim that I'm misunderstood Hide inside this heart of darkness I know the pain is real, but don't let them break you Trapped behind my eyes There's so much hidden deep inside of me Things that I despise and things that I wish you could see And the fight is endless and terrible the price I've paid How can I seek forgiveness When I'm still lying in the bed I've made? Hide inside this heart of darkness The sins you can't reveal and the trials that shake you On you wander, lost and lonely The brokenness you feel when your friends forsake you Wound a brother, kiss an enemy I know the pain is real, but don't let them break you Hide inside this heart of darkness The sins you can't conceal and the trials that make you On you wander, lost and all alone The brokenness you feel when even friends forsake you Wounded brother, kiss your enemy I know the pain is real, but don't let them break you Wounded brother, kiss your enemy I know the pain is real, but don't let them break you down

Speak in tongues, sing the language of the road Miles massaging memories, mending as she goes Break the still of mourning, and scream across the dawn She can’t go back, can’t sit still, can’t fight the drive to push on Redline her heart now, she’s chasing down the sun Angel of chrome Disappear into tomorrow Turning heads, turning wheels, turning into what she needs to be Speed her assertion, she’s taming ghosts within A dream, a dare, adrenaline, and a devil-may-care grin Wind-splayed locks of ebony, her eyes demand the truth A pocket full of promises, and no plans of stopping soon Redline her heart now, she’s chasing down the moon Chill of the morning Expanse of naked sky Endless possibilities Turning on the machine inside Angel of chrome Disappear into tomorrow Angel of chrome Disappear into your dreams Angel of chrome Disappear into the setting sun Angel of chrome Turning hearts, turning into what she needs to be

Human Chain 05:39
Haunting, daunting, wanting Hope for strength to restore, and open up the door From the darkness, comes a light A single candle, to face the night With a brother, with a friend To guarantee this time of trial will not be our end We will find resolution Push past the pain Nothing to lose and all to gain Stretched out in persecution Pulled taut with strain This can never break the human chain All our lives are on the line As we try to outrun the hands of time Souls united, bonded hearts And everyone can see the sum is greater than its parts By example, by design We will build up hallowed temples in our minds Walk in courage, seeking truth Breaking down the barriers that hold me back from you Strings of our hearts pulling taut with strain This can never break the human chain
5.
Somewhere out on the edge beyond this world we know a place where we can try to hide We struggle through the storm to reach a shore of dreams somewhere beyond the great divide Searching throughout the night Drifting toward the shore Falling in to the light Take my hand Open up the door Beyond the realm of time trying to find our way but nothing here is as it seems Lost on a sea of darkness we struggle through the storm to reach a distant shore of dreams
6.
Waiting in the darkness Aware how it may end Long past consolation Without the comfort of friends Why have I done this? Don’t call me coward. Memories of a promise The only good I’ve known Learned to close my mind and heart The secret stays my own There’s no one I can turn to now and nothing left to trust Am I heading for redemption, or a fool betrayed by love?

East of Eden 04:37
Can we ever find our way Sail upon an eastern wind To immortal panacea Hidden realm of endless bliss Perilous, the road before us Rivals seek this glorious flame Garden fortress, well defended Angel guards with swords ablaze Come and help me on this journey You will se this world's ending Sea and iron bear us forward To a place beyond our torments Ever striving to attain An auspicious destiny Ever seeking to unveil This aonic mystery East of Eden There is no more death or sorrow East of Eden Ever searching for the key East of Eden In the world of tomorrow Welcome to the East of Eden, welcome to eternity And the road goes ever on Tell me - is it worth the cost? Always searching, never finding wasted years, and the lives I've lost Is it madness or devotion? I will never give up hope I know that tomorrow may be the beginning of forever

A business man curses the weather Each new day, there's money to be made Certain all the elements are against him Construction hindered by the driving rain There are cultures on the brink of madness All their knowledge slipping down the drain Unaware of elements set against them When prophets trade for profit, wise men go insane There are those that cry for purity, and insist that blood makes a difference But when challenged over humanity, they wear masks of ignorant innocence All the lies for which our lives are sold drive us further away from the heart while all truths that should remain untold can tear a world apart There are things around us that will never be the same There are things about us that keep us free from blame There are truths outside us we can never rearrange But there is power in us to start to make a change They say the land is what divides us but even continents can collide It's our differences that unite us- the only difference is what's inside They say it's the oceans that divide us but we've sailed across the seas It's just a matter of seeing the forests before us and looking past all the trees Change, make a change, change, start to make a change Change, change, change, start to make a change

When they turn the pages of history When these days have passed long ago Will they read of us with sadness For the seeds that we let grow? We turned our gaze From the castles in the distance Eyes cast down On the path of least resistance Cities full of hatred, fear and lies Withered hearts and cruel, tormented eyes Scheming demons dressed in kingly guise Beating down the multitude and Scoffing at the wise The hypocrites are slandering The sacred Halls of Truth Ancient nobles showering Their bitterness on youth Can't we find the minds that made us strong? Can't we learn to feel what's right And what's wrong? What's wrong? Cities full of hatred, fear and lies Withered hearts and cruel, tormented eyes Scheming demons dressed in kingly guise Beating down the multitude and Scoffing at the wise Can't we raise our eyes and make a start? Can't we find the minds to lead us Closer to the heart? ...and the men who hold high places must be the ones who start to mold a new reality closer to the heart
