Kosmos: Salattu maailma

A Hidden World(6:59)

(music and arr. Virta / lyrics Valtonen)

Touch this moment and feel a wonderful warmth
Close your eyes, forget that you have ever existed
Fall asleep in reality
When you wake up in a dream
The sun will be kissing your face
Follow me into a hidden world
Where everything can begin anew
Follow me into a hidden world
To the meeting-place of the souls

Somewhere higher up you sail in the bright lights of
your thoughts And cast your anchor under a sparkling rainbow
Its cosmic glow brings your memories back to life

Touch this moment and feel a wonderful warmth
Close your eyes, forget that you have ever existed
Your creator keeps a promise
The long wait is at an end
Welcome to eternity
Follow me into a hidden world
Where everything can begin anew
Follow me into a hidden world
To the meeting-place of the souls

Aapo: guitar, drums
Päivi: vocals, reading
Kari: bass
Ismo: mellotron

Seashell (4:08)

(music, words and arr. Kylmänen)

A lonely girl feeling down walks along the beach while
the others party on
The wind beats the sea, the joy is eaten by sadness
Did the heart drown into yesterday?

With the wind the soul would fly if it were given wings
In the wind it would make its home

Finds a shell washed by the sea puts it on her ear
Hears the rushing of the waves calling her
Gets scared runs into her cottage

She knows that no-one gets to fly with the wind
The song of yesterday sounds too far away

Everybody smiles asking 'how are you?'
She is silent and sad
She shows the shell polished by the sea
That is her wordless answer

With the wind the soul would fly if it were given wings
In the wind it would build its home
But I will not let the wind direct my way
I take your hand and caress it instead

Päivi: vocals
Kimmo: mellotron
Kari: guitar, bass, flute

Incantation (4:13)

(music and arr. Kylmänen/Ari Hilli / words trad.)

Fly away you fiend
Speed away, silverwing
Ski away, satincloak
away with you, you evil of the land
Or else I'll go and meet your mother
and put it to your parents
Move your quarters, change your lodgings
Seek refugee from whence you came
Seek shelter elsewhere
Go back to where you came from
Fly away you fiend
Speed away, silverwing

Even in older times
Strong castle gates collapsed
Iron hinges were shaken
Towers were trembling
Castle walls where shaking
The castles shifted, the lakes were stirring,
The mountains were moving
So why are you not moving?
Seek shelter elsewhere
Go back to where you came from
Fly away you fiend
Speed away, silverwing

If you are asking for a ride
Begging for a horse
I will give you such a ride!
I will get a grey horse
Make the talons out of stone
Cast the legs in bronze
make bit and bridle
Seek shelter elsewhere
Go back to where you came from
Fly away you fiend
Speed away, silverwing

Aapo: drums
Päivi: vocals
Kari: guitar, bass
Jukka: violin

The Mirror (3:28)

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

How can you say that you know me
You who are able to hide inside yourself
How can you say that you know me
You who every now and then lose yourself

How could I ever tell you
About the sounds of silence
That are gently whispered
Into my ears

How can you say that you know me
You who sense my existence
Only when looking into a mirror
From where I stare back at you,
Blind as an unborn soul

How could I ever tell you
About the sounds of silence
That are gently whispered
Into my ears

Aapo: guitar
Päivi: vocals
Kari: bass
Timo Leino: flute

The Wind (7:05)

(words and music Ilkka Liettyä)

The wind is filled with sand, the wind behind the valley
But it must be overcome, that eternal wind
I only wish to get to where its journey begins
But the hope has turned to ashes
Because the wind will not have the patience to wait

I could have a dream, and in that dream I might succeed
But I cannot stay in my dreams, because in there I
would be the last
Again I only wish to get to where its journey begins
But the hope has turned to ashes
Because the wind will not have the patience to wait

There is a lot to travel, it is such far away
But I still want to go on, to conquer those mountains
I so wish to get to where its journey begins
But the hope has turned to ashes
Because the wind will not have the patience to wait

The wind is filled with sand, the wind behind the valley
And when the second morning breaks it is still far, far
away
I forever wish to get to where its journey begins
Although the hope has turned to ashes
Because the wind will not have the patience to wait

Aapo: electric guitar, harmonium
Päivi: vocals
Kimmo: drums, organ, mellotron
Kari: guitar, bass
Ismo: mellotron
Jukka: violin

A Dream (7:36)

(music and arr. Virta/words Valtonen)

A dream in which the reality is crying wakes up into a
torturing nightmare
While the world keeps counting to seven again and
again
The light is released from its prison only to disappear
into cellars of darkness
A shadow touches the clock of time
There is no place to run
And so the planet earth disappears in the mist
Wrapped in the thickest shroud of lifelessness
And the history was now, and nevermore...

Whispers in a metropolis, seven lights on the left side of
the universe disappear. The sun
got tired of shining and the dawn never came.
I'm losing my hearing, my eyes already blind are
bleeding, and my prayers, my silent cries for
help have all ceased. The last verses of the lullaby for
all mankind echo to deaf ears.
A purple rain is pouring down, and the creatures called
men suffocate, die.

Kari: bass
Ismo: kitara, mellotron, glockenspiel
Juha: reading
Timo 'Tekri' Niemi: reading

Back To The Stream (5:21)

(words and music Pekka Streng)

Back to the stream, to the beginning of my time.
My face changes into countless new ones.
My colour changes, my race changes,
as my past shapes return to the stream.
Back to the stream, back to the stream.

Back to the stream, the dark bird of the night
spreads its wings, flies to the time long past,
to the multi-coloured passing of the days,
where I have made the choices, that make up the
present moment.
Back to the stream, back to the stream.

Back to the stream, to the beginning of a human life.
To a look full of wordless pain.
I know now, I know now, that after rebirth
something wonderful is going to happen.
Back to the stream, back to the stream.

Aapo: guitars, congas
Päivi: vocals
Kari: bass
Olli: shrutibox, buddhabox, tambura
Ismo: organ, mellotron, glockenspiel
