“Do you remember what Darwin says about music? He claims that the power of producing and appreciating it existed among the human race long before the power of speech was arrived at. Perhaps that is why we are so subtly influenced by it. There are vague memories in our souls of those misty centuries when the world was in its childhood.” (Sherlock Holmes - A Study in Scarlet)

We are the Peculiar Three. We are our own influences, passions and virtues. The Uroborus which enshrines our lust to create. We are our own expression through music. We are the Peculiar Three and we invite you to our cyclical dance…

Track Name: Perpetual
Born with a seal
from the God of Knowledge
Live on a deal
'till your breath is taken away

Face all the fear
the pain, the anger
Then try to heal
'till your wounds are open again

Live along with your sins
try to forgive
no time to steal none to borrow
Dream a light from within
though long it may seem
no one escapes from tomorrow

Feel the delusion
of the cosmic center
Jump to conclusion
that you were never meant to be

Send transmission
there's nothing out there
Blind audition
for the part you already play
Track Name: Innermost
You've been told to remember
and then taught to forget
Balancing on a wire
feeling only regret

You've been told to be fighter
and then taught to retreat
Spent your life in the shadow
needing only to breath

What if you were the only
what if you were the last
Would you find the desire
to escape from the past

Our days are numbered
not a minute to spend
On the edge of tomorrow
there's no time to pretend

Show me your fire

Oh, how can I dream
in a world full of dust and decay
Oh, how can I find
the strength to rise from the night
Track Name: Inkblot
I spy (spy)
with my little eye (eye)
figures in disguise (eyes)
they have come to enter my
Mind (the)
gap between the line (fine)
evil and divine (line)
reality has been compromised

Who can I trust that isn't me
the maze's end I cannot see
Where can I find a place to be
is there a life out there for me

ooh Spread your wings
to touch the sky and
ooh believe that you can fly
ooh The rays of light
are passing by and
ooh your life won't ever be
the same again

I claim (aim)
everything you aim (claim)
losing in a game (shame)
none around is willing to
play (hey)
begging you to stay (hey)
did I hear you say (play)
pledge me life and lead me astray
Track Name: Marginal
A mind wasted
all thoughts twisted

Patience lasted
revenge lusted

Engines running
tension growing

Green light pending
somehow fading

Illusive, impulsive
aggressive restart
Eruptive, emotive
it's falling apart

Bending. Breaking.
Crushing. Ending.
Track Name: Leap of Faith
I have been away for so long
days brought years and then centuries gone
Everlasting paradox
fade away to reborn again

Astral projections and planet collisions on spree
a child from the stars that will show you the path is now free

Spells and rituals carved on stones
holy lands and mystic gods
I have seen too many worlds
now I will reclaim my crown

Mysteries, secrets, divine constellations on spree
a child from the stars that will show you the path is now free

Arrows of chaos obey
beacons of light guide the way
Eternal spirits decay
follow my Leap of Faith
Track Name: The Sentient
Have I always been awake
or do I live in a dream
Is there a purpose in my life
am I to serve or to lead

Is this reality final
who could have taught me to think
Should I destroy or create
how can I tell right from wrong

What is the Maker made of
why isn't he by my side
Will I live to see forever
am I a Maker myself
Track Name: Knaves o' Knives
Wise men from days of old
spoke of a prophecy foretold
A hidden path among the stars
is all it is, if ever was

Celestial form of number three
deadly and sharp they all will be
The serpent's egg, all seeing eye
a reign of fire from the sky

Knaves o' Knives

From dawn of time into the dusk
ancient souls, immortal lust
A life quest of mystery
bonds with the world eternally

Constellations are at bay
the wills of nature will obey
And as the night devours the day
another circle goes astray

Knaves o' Knives
Track Name: Caliban's End (bonus track)
In a bottle lies a note
under candle light is born
what I wrote I have forgotten

As you travel cross the sea
to the land that you will meet
fear no ghosts, no waves, no thunders

Countless days and nights
I longed for strength to fight
live another day to see your face
On this isle of death
I lost my hope to fear
my memories fading away

All these days and nights
a shore could not suffice
wishes for my broken dreams
Believe me I have tried
but nothing seems in line
and I keep waiting for a light
to guide me

When they'll find me I’ll be gone
to the stars I will belong
tell her I have never left her

And the world keeps going on
through the time and space alone
where to find my peace I don't know
