Pre-production for upcoming debut album by Symbolik.


With a craving for something beyond everything that he's ever known
He shovels his way through the theories of infinite qualities
Who'd have known, that the soul
Is imprinted with thousands of memories
That is happening every second
Approaching the concept of truly diverging

It has taken many of lives through centuries
In pursuit of achieving the ultimate level of absolution
His eyes widen with conviction
This is more than a mad man’s vision
His mind begins to bend and separates into thousands of strands
A new dimension manifests

Mirrors of foreign images of himself
Sedating the child of fiction
And restructuring all that he knows
Glory to he who discovers the key
To unlocking the void

With a low hum like druids
Images of countless past, and presents
And possible futures engulf him like a tsunami
Where the dead has never died
And those living have long since perished, a home incased with memories of him he’s never known
Struggling to horde this surging
Source of cosmic intellect
He closes his eyes to shield his sight
From a presence he’s yet to comprehend
A silhouette of a familiar frame
Emerges and he’s not alone
The scattered faces, copied and pasted
Ready to embrace the final form

Without fear of the unknown
Optimistic horizons
Will reveal themselves
In us all holds
The truth that you seek
It’s been captured and ruined

Now rise like the Phoenix
Sore into the night
Wings doused in lava
Dripping fuel to the mind

Burn back the flesh they gave you

With a new take on the land
I’d say his appetite’s been more than satisfied
You can see it in his eyes
Everything now holds
Such vibrance, meanings to things
That were once unseen
Only dwelled in dreams
Now he is much more aware of his being
A spec in the meaning of a much greater machine
Unlocking the walls put forth by your enemy
Is a task not easily executed and rarely achieved
