about

There are times when you realise the misconception you have about most important things around you. Such insight might appear gradually in small steps or shockingly abrupt. You suddenly feel a confinement. It might be painful for a moment, but it shall also lead to new and possibly more truthful goals, eventually spending more joy and fortitude.

Empire Transition is about such inner conflicts and the change of view with respect to valued things you took for granted. It deliberately questions alleged hallmarks of our modern society and describes a transition from compelled deadlock to self-determined movement.

Lyrics for Empire Transition, by Nordwise

Open my eyes
Veiled in haze
I find myself
In a maze
This must be
The famous place
Where nothing counts
But a stupid race
I have opened my eyes

Leave me, you make me sad
You, you drive me mad
Leave me, get off my back
This is not your track
You can stay
If we could find
A common goal
No matter how far away

All try to stay on top to no avail
Most starve beneath, no worth
And all they fail, but still all they all hail
The keeper of burden to prevail
Some call it Earth
Let's call it our Jail

Leave me, you make me sad
You drive me mad
Leave me, get off my back
This is not your track
You can stay
If we could find
A common goal
No matter how far away

I will not pray
In your golden shrine
Even if you pay
That soul of mine
We'll never know
What would be and should be
If you can't decide
To join me and love me

Leave me, you make me sad
You drive me mad
Leave me, get off my back
This is not your track
I open my eyes
I left your jail
When I have set
My silken sail
To reach my goal
No matter how far away
