Migration is our first song, the lyrics call us to wake from our endless roaming and find direction in life.

A progressive track with an epic sound, sub bass and bass evoke the echoing expanse of the solar system while the insistent dance-trance rhythm on drums, guitar, slap key-bass and sequencers provide a sense of relentless movement, our transmigration through time and space.
An array of effects enhance this cosmic feel, culminating with the soulful sax (actually sound-engineered from Japanese kokyū) which beams out across the galactic winds.

Migration – our journey through the cosmos!

Temptation to move
on the surface of the Earth,
in the waves between the worlds

Elevator to the stars
reflects galaxies dance,
nebulas moving past fast

Star dust on the shoes,
silicon soles on the move
echo in the empty tube

Mind games unfold on the screen
of the perceptual realm
filled with the ants’ scream

Existence - running in loops,
population of the virtual realms
distracted from the moment of truth

There’ll come a moment at last
when you break through the deadly impasse,
when the wheels of migration collapse.
