about

The longest and most purely progressive track on the album, Nova Red was conceived by vocalist Amanda to be a musical super nova. It is a goodbye to a hero. It is a sorrowful lament to a lost light. It is a desperate attempt to alleviate the darkness we feel. It is the last cry of a common star.
"We are pretending to be heroes
but heroes fly on raven's wings
And leave us choking on the dark"

lyrics

I'm afraid to write these words
but the truth is undeniable
Tomorrow isn't promised to us
All the revolutionary men have gone
I'm afraid to face my fear
I have seen my mortality
If your light won't burn forever
then what hope have we?

We set out to change the universe
but we only changed ourselves
Now our life is only image
pictures from afar
a light lost in the dark
We are satellite reflections
burning brightly
We are pretending to be heroes
but heroes fly on raven's wings
And leave us choking on the dark

It seems so strange
how beautiful the sorrow
of a distant goodbye
But we, we are here
And while the brightest radiance
can burn the dark
the light we shine
only makes the shadows longer

Our dreams are wrong, but we grow strong
the fire we burn refines us
it defines the light we shine
Don't believe that misery is manifold
the meaning of all is in between
and we hold it in our hands
But if skeletons sing inside our dreams
we will never feel the sun

It seems so strange
how beautiful the sorrow
of a distant goodbye
But we are here
and while the brightest radiance
can burn the dark
the light we shine
only makes the shadows longer

If I build my funeral pyre (funeral pyre)
And burn my dreams upon it
Can I reach you? (I can’t reach you)
If I sacrifice myself to flame (sacrifice)
would it means something to you? (I mean nothing to you)
I cannot hope to be your hero
My death comes on raven's wings
Fading in obscurity

It seems so strange
how beautiful the sorrow
of a distant goodbye
