lyrics

Leaves fall on the ground
Weighing my footsteps down on my way through the hills
I hear no sound
But a strange beating nearly filling my mind

The light of day is slightly darkening
Clouds over a desperate wailing
Rising up, running out, going down
Listen to the voice inside you
Ancient laments from a distant age

A storm is coming our way

The sky is spitting out the thunder
It’s thumping on the ground
And I can feel the rain
My innocence is blown away
It’s gone forever
And I can feel the rage
It’s running through my veins
I’m walking from the shelter, opening the fence
Leaving far behind those times of innocence

Things will never be the same
But you know you must find a way to go
Down in your soul
Dive in the deepest ocean that you’ve ever seen
Open your door
Look at your feelings like they’re not what they seem

... and as i stand here stricken by the lightening
I feel the rage that’s running through my veins
I’m walking from the shelter, opening the fence
Leaving far behind those times of innocence

Everything is different
We must feel the moment
When it’s time to go

Just spread your wings and fly
Our new life is starting
Don’t you let it go oh no
Now reach out to the sky
With the wind still rising
And though the journey’s long, I know we’re strong
No matter how, we will go along

about

AKIN Lyon, France

Formed back in 1998 in Lyon, AKIN signed up with Sacral Productions to release "Verse" (2001) and then "Forecast" (EP-2003). Both CD's were reviewed in the french metal press as being part of the top albums of the year of their release.

After a long off-peak period, AKIN got back to work in 2009 with a string quartet at its side and is now proud to present its second LP, "The way things end".
