Intrigue 02:08
The Unaware 03:02
the other sun is burning as they bite inside they will find you there standing there fighting with the sky tonight i can't forget why can't we see them the always unaware in the time of yearning this place and energy the smooth motion of the trees
Valentine 02:36
softly music plays in mine ear whilst waves of laughter bring forth tears but so i look on you fair and true look back at me, ere i be blue tis the play my heart draws near the words, not verse, that are so dear i give myself to you in my hands this, our journey, to wonderland gallant hearts collide in one i hope you not let me be undone on my life, you are a dream i please you, be you what you seem? speak you fair and tell me so if you love me not, ere i'll go but place a kiss on my gentle hand and with you always i will stand
Oh Dear 02:10
when the dreams have found you nowhere i will guide you to the doorway there oh dear oh my dear when you see right there the doorway opens and the clouds are there don't worry so i will guide you there don't you worry so i will guide you there oh dear
Failure 05:22
inventions are the figures of the mind no way to cope with failure not nearly ideal time to illicit this behavior regressions are the signs of changing style these things we can endeavor to keep with passing times i have to cope with failure what can i see the same as you i want to be everything in you what can you see trying to copy you everything to be i am in you processions are the easy path to smile in line with all the others not nearly ideal time why should i even bother repressions are what i live today a lot of nothing in my brain i think i am a failure
Rusty Haloes 04:10
cherubs with broken wings the wind blows through their faces i opened my mind to sing their eyes grow colder still angels that cannot sing fly to greet the freed pale faces of martyrs sting hold hands in the clouds waiting for the night to dawn their words cling to our sorrows when depths in days are gone guilt dulls their rusty haloes across their heartstrings they sing out of tune huddled around they cling in the pouring rain like snowflakes in the spring the silence fades away their screams begin to ring deafening the ashes
night wonders are wilder holding higher up so low stars glisten my tears away sun evaporates the stains if i can hold them i will dream them we will find them they will fall there's a place there it will drown you we will find them they will fall everything she thinks has shattered something there again nowhere can you look down and find the piece in me it's a blurred and vicious day you'll never find it you would find me inside again how soon it crumbles she sits she dreams she loves she knows she understands she lives she hates she learns she regrets she stumbles she hurts she cannot remember she is never the same
Wasted Time 05:15
lost or stolen truth in time sits upon the hill battered and frail thoughts are falling in mine own mine own house is where i find them there of the conscious clear and told of far away we have a place where we can save them the thoughts take me by the dust keeps falling down the wind takes their scent away look in front but never far behind their faces shy away they will take you there you'll see them waiting a breath upon your neck the skin of our lives waiting to find the one day find the one place know the meaning of their wasted time we are still wasting time the nothing of the day i waited so long waited there but nothing, nothing no one, nothing will take away the wasted time we wasted time
Radiant 02:58
in my dreams while light blinds me the radiant sun reborn before me this phoenix of flame and searing heat boils my skin and makes me bleed the sun collapses the fire collides my eyes are burning black star falling in this consciousness i am aware of the power that is everywhere this burning flame that i peer into cleanses my soul and purifies me through
Her Face 05:36
her will she drove them she needed them to they never saw her so gently she had fled and you're calling home so many nights have passed and her face shown in the moon something of nothing so beautiful a dream years past she riveted them all a thousand and more there the blood and the glory all for the sake of her beauty
Never Again 03:50
as the daylight dims the dawning begins another one to fall i begin again i know the day when time runs together shades of gray return i feel again the clouds shade the words dreams blare aloud eyes burn with tears i drown again walking in September i left another place clawing at the surface of the waves circling and grasping the truth finds me moving against the darkness never again
Fade 03:18
beátam me dícent ómnes (all shall call me blessed) around the leaves and willow wisps the starlight fades out of the mists there is a journey to find another a distant place i will uncover to pacify these aches and pains and taste the warmth of a summer rain in this swirl where memory exists the stream flows away out of the mists


Out of the Mists takes listeners on a journey through the many facets of the band and explores classical, electronic, goth, and ethereal genres. In their creative exploration, the band made a video for the haunting and melodic song, "The Unaware." Out of the Mists is both visually and musically rich, a stunning tour de force encompassing the band's emotional edge.
