about

Eudemonic is a journey, is the flight of the phoenix that falls, dies and rises back to life from its own ashes, ready to fly again.

Eudemonic is a deep introspective autobiography of those who created the music and lyrics.

Eudemonic is a sincere and painful journey, but it is also an opening toward that hope we`re trying to keep alive, like a tiny flame in the storm.

Eudemonic is a chapter, a phase, a circle sometimes turning into a loop.

Eudemonic is written and played with a hand on heart by people who want to share, maybe as a “therapy”, their experiences, both those they lived and what they couldn't live at all, driving the listener into a journey, in a dream, to the passage from darkness to light.

Track Name: November
You see? I'm colorful
It means i'm going to die, soon
I stand alone, still life: I pose
and nude, defenseless i will face the cold inside

Winter will be gone
Dark embrace, cold quiet grave
Will you remember me as i used to be?
winter will be gone
Will i see your face, will i feel your taste?
Will i remember you or you will fade away from me?

November - I'm dying to spring again
November - no longer i will be your place
Will you remember the security of my shades
Will I remember that a new life awaits
November – leafs falling away
November – rains will tear from grey
Remember - new smiles will bloom one day
Remember - these days are gone away

Life flows slow through my veins
I'm prepared to be my own death
And day after day
Hour after hour
I . WILL . LIVE . AGAIN .
Rain - snow - pain - I grow

I will feel a newborn me while you will smile for different eyes
I will be the same old me, no more your shelter no more your shield

November
Remember
November
Remember to forget about me
Track Name: Delay
I try, I fight, I lose: no matter what
you shine, you smile, you hide: uncatchable
inside my crystal cage I build the wall
to keep me far from what I need the most

You dance, divine malice, you drink my tears
I swallow jealousy, you feed my fears
My Muse, oh sweet obsession, leave me be
you breathe my air, you steal the light from me

I know, there was a time that I still felt you could be mine
I know, there was a place for you and me, endless embrace

I run, I hurt, I bleed: I choke my heart
you wait, you laugh, you dream: unreachable
my bond, this chain I close around my neck
I'm waiting for the day when you will be back

I choose my misery, you are not to blame
there can't be a light on since there is no flame
I need no sympathy, world leave me be
just give me a chance to fade away from here

same time, different place: away, I won't meet your face
same place, different time: delay, you won't be mine

too late, too late...
Track Name: Unfinished Dream
Why do I love you?
Why do I dream at night?
Why do I feel you, while my hands are empty in daylight?
Now you tell me why
Dreams cannot survive
Everything will die
When light enters in my eyes

What am I? An unfinished dream
weird, absurd, repeating time after time

In black and white the stream flows the memories
of what I'm scared to find While the future lies behind
Reality is in between these mirrors, broken dreams
And then I'm face to face with the pieces of myself

Why do I wake up?
Why do I live this life?
Why do I see you while your absence paints my time?

And my dream is stuck in me
And I'm trapped in what I am:
What am I? An unfinished dream

I know we live a lie
Love is born to die
I take refuge in my dreams
How i wish to live asleep

I see your eyes beneath the haze of barren tears
I feel your mouth slowly gently kissing me
Then emptiness breaks in when light's blindfolding me
The cold sensation comes to fill the void I live
Track Name: Poisoned Rose of Summer
...And I know then if
I will jump down the rope
I will walk again one day
the well known icy path
standing on black ice
too thin to stand the weight
of my guardian angels in my eternal fight

this space is too small for us
since you share with me
the nonsense of our bleeding game
I didn't choose to play
and then I find myself
with an empty handful of sand
of time we wasted and lost behind
and now I know you lied... lies... lies!

and I'm wrong again
meaningless, betrayed
left out in the cold
while your sun still burns my soul
and you'll rise again
my ash will be your gain
the life you stole from me
the misery you feed

dying, I close my eyes
I smell my dreams
poisoned by your tears
my rose, your petals killed
the summer of my heart

and for how I prayed
I never found the faith
you killed me
and I'll never live again

and i swear i'll live again
Track Name: The Gate
You stand there
on the other side
out of reach
but way too close
These bars
gate through a wall
that separates
and kill the hopes

you talk to me
but there's no sound
I scream at you
but the voice rebounds
back to me, please open
this Traitors Gate
this Love and Hate
that separates

Shame, disgrace
this Traitors Gate
is a door on nowhere
come to this side
or let me in
to get lost and found again... again, again.

Open
Open
Open
Closed.
Track Name: One Day Closer (loop)
One day closer to all I want from life
One day closer to what I try to hide
One day closer to the to the happiness I'll find
One day closer until I die

One day closer to whom I miss the most
One day closer to what will be lost
One day closer to what I have to find
One day closer to the one I'll lose my mind
One day closer to my final breath
One day closer to my death

The day I'll find myself
one day closer to when I'll dream again
One day closer, I'll try to find the wind
One day closer to my last sentence

One day closer...
Closer... far, too far from where I was meant to be
to what I was meant to become
I try to remember, stay focus: I am just...
one day closer...
Track Name: Restart
In the end, the dawn
In the end, night has gone
You've gone too far
As reward just scars
Restart

The dream is lost:
sunlight has its cost
I will meet you there
And we'll take off
Restart
Restart from here

For every single step your thoughts
were broken dreams, forget the loss
For every time you ain't shared your pain
For every day you hoped in vain
For every single drop you bleed
And all the blame, the shame you feed
For everytime you cried alone
I say restart! this is your dawn

Restart and never looking back
Restart, forget the misery, yourself is what you've left
Restart
Track Name: Galway Bay
Nevermore... again, the waves crash on the bay
but the Ocean doesn't mind, it leaves the memories behind

I stand on the line
I stand on the edge
I stand... shall I fall?

Swans from heaven rest in the harbour of my chest
seagulls ride the wind, I count the distance that's in between

Any single drop of rain
comes to wash away my pain
In the tide I fade away
Never ever, ever never again
I say goodbye to the farewells left behind: do you hear me?

I found my way to Galway Bay, I don't want to go away
it's the corner of a room in my soul: no one enters, no one goes

Everytime I walk away
Every minute, every day
Everytime I fade away
Track Name: Sunbeam
Another Day begins
I used to hate the world since the first step I took still half asleep
After another haunted night
I drag my legs to the mirror and I check myself again
and the usual mask is still on my own face

I sit on bed and smile today, a bittersweet sensation grows inside
if I remember the time gone wasted

Then I see the light
a ray that floats on wings of butterfly

Incapable to die
too many sunsets an so few dawns i've seen
and all the dreams went lost into the sun

Alone I'm born, alone I die
the loneliness in between it's what is killing me
but serenity is finally by my side

Then I see the light
a ray that floats on wings of butterfly
Alights upon my hand
it's warm and I forget the cage around

Goodbye, my friend.
