lead me inside this breathless gate yawning with endless secret smiles take me into your otherworld with coruscating kisses like so many stars (we burn) beyond the grip of silver our flaming hearts of cold detonate cut rifts right through the borders limits will lie like casualties tonight as the moonlight falls like rain upon our naked skins bind me with your silent lips to the skies and the deaths of depthless cages we burn brighter we burn as the stars of Antares you and i and you and i you and i and what may come shattering the gates beyond exploding in your hidden dark bind me with your silent lips to the skies and the deaths of depthless cages as dreamers we awaken in the melting glare of sunlight without shadow you and i and you and i you and i and what may come shattering the gates beyond exploding in your hidden dark

the taste of spring upon our lips exchanging kisses in the din of an unknown world lambent and luminous dawn is breaking through the gathered crowds like a new dimension ruptured transgressions in new colours wake dreaming stone conviction as we await the summer pulses, stepping up to speed with the song of muscles grinding pavement down into a bed of newborn flowers where we will shed our skins and make love to the stars the taste of spring as waves crash in upon the gates of here and now transgressions in new colours wake burning stone conviction sharing kisses with sun paradise burns in your eyes and paradise is waiting paradise (latent) burns in your eyes trapped in a seed (of possibility) the taste of spring as gates crash in upon the face of here and now and paradise burns in our eyes and paradise emerges from echoing of voices shouting in the sun-baked streets upon our wings of fire.

survival is a heatless lover fleeing down abandoned streets where dreaming is a polar wind caressing shades pale in mercury exhaustion, haze-like, descends over the sleeping city alien in the weeping lens of distance we stand and move our limbs but we cannot shake the sleep escape is everywhere and nowhere and never what it seems each and all and ever downwards racing through an abyss collapsing into the headwaters of nothing the sun is fled to what end? our hungers turn the gears above our heads muscles spent and passions bled enduring like the deadest sea dreams and desolation into the maw of sleep to what end? to what end? strain I would against these bonds if only every movement did not tighter draw them hunger turns the gears about our heads passions spent and muscles bled buried deep beneath a sea of dreams and desolation into the maw of sleep when will we awaken?
4.
from the womb of shadows we rush like cosmic sparks children of contradiction and revenge brilliant in the misty spaces, between collapsing structure(s) rising like the flow of solar tides we dream of summer storms to chase the dust across this broken landscape beneath the gods of silver await reflections in the pools of rainwater and iodine 131 seething with a love like rage arise arise take to the skies keep faith for the breath of fate we embrace the heat of movement in the blazing sun to smash tomorrow's doors heaven's breach is hailing absolution down to wash the dust and ash away no more to dream of storms we call them down! new trees will stand like giants over broken earth seething with a love like rage arise arise take to the skies.
5.
lambent in the light of stars falling like whispers to the earth you speak a voice of chrome steel shimmering across penumbral wastes racing, dark above the sea of moments blood, sweat, eternity in motion wrap me in rapture bury me in your atomic heart of hearts yours is the light electric pulsing in our violent embrace ours will be the azure skies and hours of our lives wet with perspiration hunting down the edge of sight never give in never, while I know you're near flashing with the rhythm of days braving what horrors they may bring yours is the light electric pulsing in this violent embrace ours will be the azure skies and hours of our lives wet with perspiration we glisten and shine hunting down the edge of sight heart of hearts heart of hearts wet with perspiration hunting down the edge of sight

about

Since 2007 the Canadian Graham J., mastermind of the band, bestows us again and again with releases, that blast off a lot of musical borders. Noise, Progressive Rock, Post Punk, Gothic Rock, even a pinch of pop is part of the music. That oneself can merge all those styles successfully to a top quality album, is proven once more with “The Maw Of Sleep” by THE SILENCE INDUSTRY. Familiar quality meets new ideas and gets packed into the mentioned alloy, to offer a firework of this unique music to old as well as new fans.
