“It’s a little too late for that now, don’t you think? I don’t understand why you just don’t….”

The sun has left me My heaven is gone I still cry alone at night Abandoned. I sleep in a sad garden Tangled ivy Brooding trees. My heart, My shadow Weeping at my bedside Life torn from my frail hands I still cry…alone.

"I want you to close your eyes now, and begin counting backwards from ten…start now." That flowing, tattered curtain, You breathe distorted sighs Hands are swollen from silent weeping Vultures tear out your eyes The scepter of darkness Bones carve through the grave. Harrowing scars of frail attrition. Morning’s sick light falls away. "Just try to relax, you're doing fine…” [ RECALIBRATING ] "Just try to relax..." Where were the children The mothers that never seemed to cry Final screams from a thousand caskets Left to find their way to die Where were the children The mothers that never seemed to cry Trembling words now once spoken Left to find their way to die >>> [ RETROGRADE CALIBRATION HOLDING AT 46% - RECALIBRATING ] <<< "No change…” [ RECALIBRATING ] My place in a jaded ocean Rotting skulls wash to the shore Flying above the blood tinged earth Infernal eclipse of war Fragile earth Cracks in the wall Feeds on destruction. Where were the children The mothers that never seemed to cry Final screams from a thousand caskets Left to find their way to die Where were the children The mothers that never seemed to cry Trembling words now once spoken Left to find their way to die "No change…” [ RECALIBRATING ] "No change…” [ RECALIBRATING ] "No change…” [ RECALIBRATING ]

Do I dare turn back to you? The tortured sky ripped in two. You can't see me as I was through. You as cruel as the morning sun. The hall is an endless fragment the woods were no longer our home you slept under the clouds waking with a vision of a shroud's throne A wounded embrace....a hallowed cry rising. I was playing at being free. I was playing at being free. I don't know myself anymore. I don't want to know myself anymore. I don't choose to know you anymore. Memories bleed to ashes. I was playing at being free.

Zdes' khorosho... Vzgljani, vdali Ognjom gorit reka; Cvetnym kovrom luga legli, Belejut oblaka. Zdes' net ljudej... Zdes' tishina... Zdes' tol'ko Bog da ja. Cvety, da staraja sosna, Da ty, mechta moja!

Softly the breeze whispers to the ocean The faint splashing sound travels high But I still think of your wavy hair Lights sparkling In your obsidian eyes In that garden of wisteria. In that garden of wisteria. As children too young to wander alone Under the trees Where we kissed The sun argues with the moon Amidst the transient reverie of stars And the sad, nocturnal grace of the swan. In that garden of wisteria. In that garden of wisteria. Lingering reflection of the black glow of the pond Grass painted with morning prism dew. The sky held the shadow as the swan flew Revealing words we never spoke The lines that we never forgot. Under the wisteria The shadows ran from me As we kissed. All but yours As you wept In that garden of wisteria In that quiet garden of wisteria.

about

"Land of Forgotten Destiny" is the second full album release by the atmospheric/ambient rock duo Mirror of Dreams.

In 2018 founding core member multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Kris Tilbury (formerly of Paper Gods, Wintryfrost, Above the Skyline, and My Darkest Time) joined forces with fellow multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Har (solo ambient/prog-metal artist, guitarist for Christus & The Cosmonaughts and Elmodic). The results of their musical alliance - the new nine song album, "Land of Forgotten Destiny" - displays their shared diverse musical backgrounds ranging from ethereal atmospheric dream-rock ("Broken Memory; Desolation", "Wisteria Garden"), hypnotic tribal rhythms ("Aphelion", "Sanctum") and spacious evolving ambient soundscapes ("Broken Memory; Resolution", "The Orrery at Twilight") - to edgy industrial/experimental ("Hysteria Garden", "The Lacrimosa Experiment") and classical ("How Fair This Spot").

Featuring Kris Tilbury's operatically trained vocal prowess and multi-instrumental skills, along with Har's multi-instrumental and production talents - "Land of Forgotten Destiny" is an exploration of darkness and light, with journeys into new territories along the way.
