about

The Mystery Of The Cosmic Sorrow is a double CD. It contains 10 compositions with total time 90 minutes. The album is a result of the 5-years endeavor, and it incarnates the fundamental idea of EW’s creative activity. The music style of the album is the mix of art-psychedelic rock, electronics and sympho-electronic experiment.

And so,
Welcome into the world
Where reality and fantasy merge into a single whole,
Where solitude is all-conquering, joy is enormous,
And pain has no boundaries.
Come, and reveal the mystery of the cosmic sorrow.
But having once done it,
Your sanity will never return back to you.

Track Name: Message From Space
Welcome into the world
Where reality and fantasy merge into a single whole,
Where solitude is all-conquering, joy is enormous
And pain has no boundaries.
Come and reveal the mystery of the cosmic sorrow.
But having once done it
Your sanity will never return back to you.
Track Name: Methane Rain
On the distant moon severe and strange
Equinox will mark the seasons’ change,
Weird storms will stir the frigid air,
Great discharge will play with cosmic glare
As dense clouds thicken over the deserted plain
Bursting in perfect wonder of the methane rain.

Wild wind’s frantic wailings pierce dark haze,
Thunderbolts resound through vast expanse,
Dried-up lakes and rivers quench their thirst,
But not one of a stranger whose way is lost
After long years of wandering in the arid plain
Only sharing his tears of sorrow with the methane rain.

Clouds will disperse, the air turn still,
Lifeless lakes and rivers will refill
Spring will pass and then fifteen long years
Desert will be left to crave for tears
To shed from the darkened heavens on the arid plain,
Pouring grief and subconscious sorrow with the methane rain.
Track Name: Born To Suffer
Why do Heavens dispose so
Of the human beings’ lives,
Mark some people’s eyes with grain of pain?
Deep tranquility inside,
Sudden joy and even happiness
Are transient — they come and pass again.

Only inside your heart
The wind howls in agony,
A grim voice whispers through the wind
A sentence that is a cross to bear for eternity.

What are you waiting for?
What are you hoping for?
What are you searching for?
Don’t you realize
That you are born to suffer?

And the flame begins to scorch,
The soul aches from icy water,
Just in thoughts you ask for someone’s help.
Deep repentance burns you down,
Life becomes so bitter, wearing you out
When the story comes to end.

Only inside your heart
The wind howls in agony,
A grim voice whispers through the wind
A sentence that is a cross to bear for eternity.
What are you waiting for?
What are you hoping for?
What are you searching for?
What are you striving for
When you are born to suffer?

What are you waiting for?
What are you hoping for?
What are you searching for?
Can’t you realize
That you are born to suffer?

The sun grows dim in heaven’s dome,
You’ll cry for years irretrievably gone.
Just sullen mountains and northern woods
Will bless your sorrow and solitude
Of the one who is born to suffer…
Track Name: Silent World
I close my eyes, and see the sky,
Satellites keep passing by,
Stars moving ‘round from east to west,
The Milky Way is lost behind the mountain crest.

Silence’s shrouded all the land,
Silence’s throbbing inside my head.
The wisps of wind are icy cold,
And I get lost in the silent world.

The life’s so transient and frail,
One day there’ll come the finish of the tale,
This bustle tomorrow may end,
You’ll even have no time to understand.

I woke up, the sky is lost,
The sun looms in grey smoke like a ghost,
Playground’s empty, highway’s still,
Before my eyes the misty vision starts to reel.

Silence’s shrouded all the land,
Silence’s throbbing inside my head.
The place where sounds of life had rolled
Has turned into the silent world.
Track Name: Valley Of Oblivion
It’s the place that no one has seen
Surrounded with mountains
Steep and high rising up to the sky
Where of the life there is no sign.

And when it dews with the rise of dawn
In the rest of the living world
Since distant centuries here the land
Is always barren, morose and sad…

Refrain.
Nobody has ever seen
This valley of oblivion
Lost in the mountains
Which cold minds
Have erected since the ancient times…

So many souls lived among us
Of whom there was such a fuss,
But their star has set once and for all
And passed out of mind of ungrateful world

All their sufferings and all their light
They gave not asking a refund.
Some of them are still alive
But are defunct in the world’s eye…

Refrain.
Lost inside this lifeless place
They suffer their loneliness
Expecting not one day to find
The one who’d lift the weight off their mind,

Who’d crash the fetters, who’d give the hand
To release at least one of them
And only silence remains their mate
Eternally sharing their fate…

Refrain.
Track Name: Following A Neutrino's Flight
Following a neutrino’s flight
My spirit will travel along
Faster than the speed of light
In micro- and macro world

Passing through matter unnoticed
Streaming in cosmic rays
Unaffected by arising disturbances
Undetected by any piercing gaze.

Bursting away from the core
Of supernova explosion
Into the intergalactic void
Doomed to perpetual motion.

To the distances beyond reckoning,
Perceiving the new knowing
To the places of joy inexpressible,
And of sorrow inconceivable.
Track Name: Space
Space is my friend,
Space is my passion,
In space there’s no end
And no direction,
Space is my life,
Space is my home,
To space I aspire,
To space I belong.

In space are my thoughts,
In space is my heart,
I’ve given it my soul,
I’m always its part.
In space I am free,
Space is my castle,
Perfectly dark
And perfectly marvellous.

Space does not reject me,
Takes me with all my drawbacks,
Forgiving me all sins
And listening to my sorrows,
Sharing my joy,
Telling the truth
Of the life’s goals,
The essence of death.

In space there’s no death,
Space is my grave,
In space there’s no dirt,
In space I am safe.
Space is wise,
Space is fair,
I hear the call of the stars
And I aspire there,
And I aspire there…
