Kosmos: Polku

The path (part 1) (1:20)

(music and arr. Kylmänen/Vainionpää // words Kylmänen)

I see a merry little path
It will lead me somewhere unknown

I see a path, it takes me away
Maybe it will lead me to you

I will get up early and leave this place behind
I will get up early and leave this place behind

Päivi: vocals
Kari: guitar

A Foreign Tongue (6:21)

(music Kylmänen/Virta // words Valtonen // arr. Helenius/Kylmänen/Virta)

A flower turns into the sun, I get strength from the shadows
I close my ears, I close my mind. Who is talking?
I hear a foreign tongue

When will the new time begin?
Who will come up with a new spell?
Strange words fill my mind. Who is talking?
I hear a foreign tongue

It sings a song, then another, I can hear it,
and the melody so strange

When the clouds move away I see the stars shining
There is magic in the night, I dance from the shadows into the light

My mind is free, I make a journey and return
I return to this time and place,
and hug the trees in secret once again

It sings a song, then another, I can hear it,
and the melody so strange

Aapo: conga drums, guitar
Pauliina: bombarde
Päivi: vocals
Kimmo: organ
Kari: bass guitar
Olli: shrutibox

Summer (3:23)

(music and arr. Virta // words Valtonen)

Summer brings it on, the transition of the mind
Bright, green, heavenly blue, burning hot
Sighs the soil, sighs the beautiful flowerbed
Feel it, little mushrooms, wet is the dew on the ground

Keep on loving, time will fade away
Look, listen, and the gates will be opened

The smells bring it on, the transition of the mind
A familiar land, the land of morning, begins to fill the awareness
Will I experience again that magic land?
Maybe in time move there permanently?

Keep on loving, time will fade away
Keep on believing, hoping, that everything can start anew

Keep on loving, time will fade away
Look, listen, and the gates will be opened

Keep on loving, time will fade away
Keep on believing, hoping, that everything can start anew

Aapo: solo guitar
Pauliina: treble recorder
Päivi: vocals
Kimmo: drums, organ
Kari: bass guitar
Ismo: guitar

Omini'i Dakakos (8:04)

(music and arr. Virta // words Valtonen)

O Omini'i Dakakos, program me to happiness
I would like to feel your love all through the river of life

I want to see the yellow crows laughing at the perfected man
To feel happiness mixed with pain,
and to succeed in living in a dream

O Omini'i Dakakos, program me to happiness
I would like to be with you when the sun sets for the last time

I want to let my hypocritical thoughts into the shadows of light
To feel happiness mixed with pain,
and to succeed in becoming a dream

Be grateful, be grateful, if your heart sings with joy
Be grateful, be grateful, for your pain is suffered by someone else

Jukka: violin
Pauliina: bassoon
Päivi: vocals
Kari: bass guitar
Ismo: guitar, mellotron, synthesizer, organ

A Gift Or A Curse (4:07)

(music and arr. Kylmänen/Vainionpää // words Maija Linnala)

She wiped away the mist, looked behind her
Closed her eyes, heard a voice, that grew sighing
A gift or a curse of the mind, the silent ones were given voices
The words broke in the wind, only one heard the fragments
She told her story, the pity was thrown at her face
“She must have been grazy from the birth, of course I pity her”

The door was slammed at her face, the back was turned at her
Nobody believes a woman, who claims to hear the trees weeping
A gift or a darkness of the mind, the dying were given voices
The stars were singing their lullabyes, then came a silence
Like a child she went to sleep, seeking shelter
“She must have been grazy from the birth, of course I pity her”

She wiped away the mist, looked behind her
Saw the silent procession, the men with axes on their shoulders
Was it the will or the moment of the weak one,
the insane one found power
Like a wolf she howled, shred and tore, the men fled
The victory was hers, so she though
“She must have been grazy from the birth, of course I pity her”

Yet before the night she was taken away
They closed her eyes, closed her ears, took her into cold lights
A gift or a kindness of the mind, the doors sealed away the voice
The world was shattered into fragments, she was left floating
She fumbled like a child, not hearing a single word
“She must have been grazy from the birth, of course I pity her”

Päivi: vocals
Kari: guitar, bass guitar

I Got Lost (4:23)

(music and arr. Virta // words Valtonen)

In the midst of all my friends I lost my way
And the night sky, like a silvery stardust covered me
And so I found a new dimension, the silence,
and it moved in to stay

Pauliina: bass recorder
Päivi: voice, vocals
Ismo: guitar, mellotron

Ouija (4:19)

(music and arr. Virta // words Valtonen)

A candlelight moves in the shadows of a room
Calls are whispered in hope for an answer

The glass is moving on the board again, the words are repeated:
It is white, it is black, it creates joy, it creates pain

Someone is calling a loved one, questions are answered
Daydreaming in the world of illusion, searching for comfort

The glass is moving on the board again, the words are repeated:
It is white, it is black, it brings joy, it brings pain

Many hope, many believe in the unknown force,
those words are repeated:
It is white, it is black, it is joy, it is pain

Jukka: violin
Päivi: vocals, whispering
Kimmo: mellotron, synthesizer, cymbals
Olli: theremin
Ismo: guitar, synthesizer

My Youth (4:22)

(music Tomas Ek // words Pasi Hiihtola // arr. Markku Johansson)

I was troubled by my youth, I left myself unfinished
And pretended that I was wise
When I looked through my head, I only saw an empty shell
I was daydreaming elsewhere again

I looked into a mirror, closing my eyes
Bewildered by the hollow gaze
I was there, though I was unable to fit myself in

I wanted to be just like the light, that wins by dazzling
Conquering the whole stage
I shouted at you, showing that some day I will be
Something else than insane and happy

I looked into a mirror, closing my eyes
Bewildered by the hollow gaze
I was there, though I was unable to fit myself in

I was troubled by my youth, I left myself unfinished
I felt my shell closing.
I disappeared into a dreamworld growing in my head
I left although I stayed where I was

I looked into a mirror, closing my eyes
Bewildered by the hollow gaze
I was there, though I was unable to fit myself in

I looked into a mirror, closing my eyes
Bewildered by the hollow gaze
I was there, though I was unable to fit myself in

Päivi: vocals
Kimmo: drums, piano, mellotron, organ
Kari: bass guitar

The Path (part 2) (1:51)

(music and arr. Kylmänen/Vainionpää // words Kylmänen)

I see a merry little path
It will lead me somewhere unknown

I see the sky with its multitude of stars
The moon is shining, it is time, I whisper my goodbyes

I will get up early and leave this place behind
I will get up early and leave this place behind

Päivi: vocals, whistling
Kari: guitar
