about

The album "Safe in Sound" was released in May 2013, and was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Soilwork, James LaBrie..) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. It was recorded in different studios in Israel, and was produced independently by the band. The album displays a wide array of songs - each song is composed and arranged to fit the lyrics - that come from personal experiences, to bring out all the causes and emotions that gave birth to the text which tell the familiar stories of dealing with the natural impulses of the human mind, and maintaining an aware and controlled mind.

Track Name: Blood Into Water
Children dying for candy… …Candy for dying children
Hope overtakes pain… …Pain takes over hope

Hateful eyes raise them high
Train them back into those innocent eyes
And learn how to read this song
Left to right not right to wrong


Ideas will free your mind… …Mind your free will ideas
Love overrules hate… …Hate rules over love

Hateful eyes raise them high
Train them back into those innocent eyes
And learn how to read this song
Left to right not right to wrong



Avoid unnecessary weight,
tell me how it feels to fly again
Use what you’ve learned, see if you can
Take the good with the bad and provide better
Thank god I know how to turn blood into water
Track Name: All Lies
Reckless thriving
Fake still shining
Lifeless rising
Dead and smiling
Primal urges bursting out of me

So I'm -
Sick and spreading
Poison feeding
Self-destructing
Vague and fading
Gazing cold in all the tears you shed..

Till I lose myself in your eyes.
Peeling me, waking me, I'm all lies.
Lose myself in your eyes.
Revealing me, peeling me
from -

Reckless thriving
Fake still shining
Lifeless rising
Dead and smiling
A heartless grin, back stabbing piece of shit

Oh and -
Greedy chasing
Anger breeding
Shameless mocking
Pointless fighting
Bullet proofing every smile I wear..

Till I lose myself in your eyes.
Peeling me, waking me, I'm all lies.
Lose myself in your eyes.
Revealing me, peeling me from my lies.

From my lies
From myself
Through your eyes
I'm all lies
Track Name: Endless I
(Through)
Spring sunny days and endless field
Flowers search for light,
As I am,
Endlessly

I'm not hushed in clouds,
I'm just passing through.
Searching through the lost and found
for soothing skies to cover the blue.

This is taking so much time
I've been trying for so hard, for so long.

Resting guns on a shelf,
No more engaging attacks.
Calling a truce between me and myself.
Searching lights, filling all the lacks.

This is taking so much time
I've been trying for so hard, for so long.
Extracting sweet out of lime
Contrasting light out of wrong.

(Through)
Spring sunny days and endless fields
Flowers search for light,
As I am,
Endlessly
Track Name: Towards The Light
Every pain that came
Every single game
Never caved me in
But kept me as a burning flame

All I.. all I've ever been writing
I've been singing and shouting
And it led me
It kept me
From falling out

All I.. all I've ever been writing
I've been singing and shouting
And it led me
It kept me
Towards the light

Every mocking name
Every childhood shame
Ruined me inside
But strengthened me


Hard times will never win
Progressing pin by pin
Keeping myself from going insane
You don't know where I've been!
Track Name: Thoughts
Peek-a-boo
Come pick my brain
You're a default fuck
We're both raising Cain

Peek-a-boo
Come pick my brain
I'll be biting my lip
Oh I'll be bleeding insane


sKulls on a stick
There’s nothing to think about
I lose doubt a little more everyday
It's not the right way,
But the shallow and obvious say that if you mean well, than it's all ok.
I close my eyes and inside out I go falling smiling doubtless senseless
Fuck your answers
Here am I

My skin is growing thicker, molding, unfolding a monster.
Grinding thoughts of a blood mouth, so look out.

It's an empty page at an empty time
Too fucking easy to be carried away with our eyes
Blindfolded blind fools – dead inside,
I'm faking my days, it's too easy to hate so I'm -
Chewing my mouth as I begin to blame all those around me
I hate to feel the same, it's the shame that rips the light apart
It's not out, it's in – I'm a fucking human being

My skin is growing thicker, molding, unfolding a monster.
Grinding thoughts of a blood mouth, so look out.
Track Name: Luminary Kid
I need to know that there are good people in this world.

I need to know not everyone has their certain circumstances,
That not everyone has their price.

I need to know there are people who would fight those so called mitigating assumptions at all cost.

And I need to keep myself on their side of the ring.
Track Name: Sweet Medicine
My dreams will never come true
without my lighthouse keeper.
My drinks just won’t do
Though I cannot stay sober, no sir.

The sun in my spring will keep on looking for you
to keep me warm, to guide me higher.
My wings just won’t do
without your feathers.

All my life I've had only
bitter medicine
All my life the only
sweet medicine
I've ever had
is you


My steam needs you to
turn it back into water.
My scheme revolving you
Is only to keep you smiling forever, you know

The sun in my spring will keep on looking for you
to keep me warm, to guide me higher.
My screams won’t get me through
without your soothing whispers.


Be honest - ‘Cause I wasn’t.
Think of others - ‘Cause I didn’t.
Count to three and stop - ‘Cause I haven’t
believed in love.
And I haven’t loved anyone, anyone
Truly as much as I love you, I love you…
I’m not a bad person, I’m the worst.
I’m the worst but I’m sorry!
Track Name: Out
You were there to hum along note to note.
You were there to laugh, to fuck, to fly.
You were there to sing along with every anguished word I wrote.
Where are you now when I'm drenched in my songs?

This is me, collapsed on the floor.
Needing you here but you're better off
out the door and on your way
as I walk out of my mind but out of your way!

Oh this is all too much I know.
I'm way to steep for you,
so climb out and save yourself.

I was there to carry you home again.
I was there to keep you from being driven madly insane.
Where are you now when I'm baring my bones?

This is me, collapsed on the floor.
Needing you here but you're better off
out the door and on your way
As I walk out of my mind and go astray.

Walk out of the door and on your way.
Just walk out on me and just look away.
Just walk out on me, walk out on me,
just get away, da' fuck out of my way!

Oh this is all too much I know.
I'm way to steep for you,
so climb out and save yourself.

This is me, collapsed on the floor
Needing you here but you're better off
out the door and on your way
as I walk out of my mind but out of your way
Over the line with nothing to say but
GET OUT – DA' FUCK OUT OF MY WAY!

Oh this is all too much
I'm way to steep for you,
so get away leave me to crawl.
Just climb out and save yourself.

We both know
You’re scared to your bones
But I need you now
Track Name: Actions
This is what you're gonna get if you keep breaking me!

I won't let these thoughts lead into actions, no.
I won't let you fucks bring me down!
I will keep myself safe in sound, safe in this sound.

How could you fucking do this??
Track Name: Skin Deep
Coming back home
Searching for elephants
Blinds close it in,
No whispering wind is caressing my skin

Hiding under the bed
Searching for elephants
Trying to keep the wolf from the sheep
Crying myself to sleep

But today I'm safe within
Covered in thick dead skin
Nothing gets to me

My cover's wearing thin
Still searching for elephants
Spiraling down for family bounds
No elephants found

Closing my eyes to believe
Holding my breath to live
Trying to keep the wolf from the sheep
Crying myself to sleep

But today I'm safe within
Covered in thick dead skin
Nothing gets to me

I used to go through hell
I used to go insane
But now it hides me well
I can't cry, I can't feel the rain

I used to go through hell
I used to go insane
But now it hides me well
Though I'm still here..
Covered but here
Buried..

PULL ME OUT!
