about

www.skeletontrees.com

"For a first release, the amount of effort that went into Season of Mists is fairly surprising. Skeleton Trees went to great lengths to produce a work that is intricate as it is layered, as well as giving the album a very polished presentation with its artwork and packaging. My guess is we’ll be hearing plenty more from this band in the years to come."

- Brian Backlash (BrianBacklash) from Regen Magazine


"Some will say it’s boring, whereas others will be blinded by its beauty. Such things do depend on your taste. But still, we can definitely assure you that this fine self released album containing ten songs will be loved by anyone who’s into quality ethereal darkwave."

- Didier BECU from Peek-A-Boo Magazine


"Season of Mists, Skeleton Trees’ debut effort, is a hauntingly beautiful venture into dreamland."

- Barton Graham from Chain D.L.K

Track Name: Intro (Whispers in the Wind)
N/A
Track Name: The Obscuration of Dreams
In this sea remain
All of my tears
I touched the instant of another life
I am changing

A moon seems to restore my hollow mask
Is it a blessing? (So many faces…)
I’m hiding in the dunes of many dreams
My memories are dust

She tried to make me forget everything
But I know this night
I’ve seen the twilight of another season
I remember

So I see her now
I see her now
I see her
In the pictures of my sorrow

Colliding with a past I can’t recall
I do know this night
The structure of the walls, the whispers of my fear
Her home in every mirror

So I see her now
I see her now
I see her
Through the curtains of my sorrow

Fall the leaves
Fall, fall, fall the leaves
Fall the ages
Fall, fall, fall again
I’m awake...

Fall the leaves
Fall, fall, fall the leaves
But the dream remains
Fall the ages
Fall, fall, fall again
My darkest sister, rise!
Track Name: Black Moon Rising
N/A
Track Name: A Tear in the Fabric of Time
Across those empty fields
Rest the prospect of the lost
I drowned so long ago
In the river of my wounds

A web of rotten years
Total eclipse of my soul
I will be away
On the day of your coming

Oh stranger tell me why
I must leave this shelter now
I have waited many lives
In this castle of time

Hollow smiles beyond these clouds
I must keep my images of you
Give me my final hours
It’s the season of mists

The wake has come again
There is no reality
I will always be adrift
In my little web of time

But I’m lost in dreams
And I know
I must go away

I will pass through this shattered night
And leave the fabric of time
Nowhere will you find me out there
All these years are meaningless
Forever lying in the dust or stay

I must go away
I must go away
And leave this shelter of the soul
And lose my memories of love

I must go away
I must go away
There’s a dream in the fabric of time
A tear in the fabric of time

Wandering outside of time, forgotten
Wandering outside of time, it’s so dark
A tear in the fabric of time
A tear in the fabric of life
Track Name: Her Home in Every Mirror
Like in a dream
She can feel all their kisses
Again and again
The taste of their lust
The smell of their fear
She can feel all their pain
The will of the fallen

Under the world
She is sleeping for us
Behind the glass
So alone in her cave

Like in a dream
She wishes she could leave
Just to hold them again
Oh winter of life
Take her right in your arms
Like a rift in a doll’s house
Another nightmare

Do you remember us?
The shadows of fall
We will bless the night
When you will rise
A moment of silence, some pictures of despair
The dawn of the black moon

Do you remember us?
The shadows of time
You remember the sorrow
Your reflections
The tears on your mirror

Do you remember us?
The children of fall
Do you remember us?
The children of death
Track Name: Shadows (part 1-3)
Deep down in these woods
The shadows of the exiles are returning
Watching the night
They’re moving behind the mist of trees

Tell me where I should lie
Tell me why the sky is fading away

Deep down in these woods
They feed on emotions, on reflections
Whispering for the moon
They’re dancing in the graves of my sleep

Tell me where I should die
Tell me why the sun is fading away

They will take my soul to her
Through the looking glass they will come
Tell me why the world is fading away
And reality is breaking apart

In the mirror
There are shadows
In the mirror
There are shadows

Underneath the surface of winds
Traveling in-between the dreams
Tell me why the world is fading away
And the storm is starting anew

No more tears for the future
Into the abyss we fall
Like a flower into the empty skies
Like a thought into the ashes of flesh
The sound of felicity
Becoming the chant of murder
Tell me why my cries are fading away
And the storm is starting anew

Tell me why I’m fading away
Tell me why the shadows cry
Tell me why I’m fading away
Tell me why the shadows cry
Track Name: Inside Her Cave
She sleeps among the cracks of time
As we stand inside her shadow dwelling
Falling down like a rain of mirrors
The ghosts of insane children

I stand alone among the oceans
The others remain still (like painted skies)
Floating through the tapestry
Of her wails, of her pain
And she’s dreaming…

Dreaming inside her cave
Dreaming inside her cave

She falls between those broken seasons
She’s alone in her cell
No one’s listening, no one’s real
It’s so cold in here
And she’s dreaming…

Dreaming inside her cave
Dreaming inside her cave

And deep inside this corridor
Another shape of things to come
We will fade like memories
But she will stay, forgotten one
Forever dreaming!

Rise, the sleepers from her cave
Rise, the sleepers from her cave
Track Name: Lady of the Snow
Quietly she closes her eyes
As she dresses with the winter’s veil
Her dreams are rising from the cold
Shaping the faces of the earth
Like the snow she falls on my skin
Melting and crying

Suddenly she sends her tears away
As she awakes from the winter’s mist
Her fear is rising from the ice
Lying in a bed of dead roses
She’s the shadow of my mirror’s clock
Screaming like the wind

Beneath the moon, she dances in the haze
As she looses herself in this storm
Her name remains in our dreams
Witness the eternal nest of time
Melting and dying

Again and again the echoes fall
Again and again the echoes fall
Again and again the echoes fall
Watching our fate

Again and again the angels fall
Again and again the angels fall
Again and again the angels fall
Watching our fate
Track Name: Wail of the Banshees
In the river of the fallen
An obscuration of dreams
Dusty pictures in the bedroom
Did we leave the mirror broken?

To form a prison, we live
Even my screams must be fed

Into the river of mists
A transformation of dreams
The innocence of my tears
How can I drown with the leaves?

No more tears for the future
And the banshees are wailing again
No more tears for the future
And the storm is starting anew
Track Name: Dead Leaves River
Curtains hide the rainbow’s eyes
As we walk through melancholy
There’s nothing left but ruins in here
I ‘m a relic…

A book of lies covered in sand
I’m aware of your return
I have found so many trails
Oh weep for us…

And I stand in front of life
In this cage dreaming of light
I drift between sinking moments
In a realm of desolation

And I scream inside of you
My last window off this world
Then I drift again
Like a dead leaf in the wind…
