Our Ceasing Voice Innsbruck, Austria

Austrian ambient rockers Our Ceasing Voice have always thrived on change. At the heart of their new sound are vocals as distinctive as the music itself: dark and poetic, dramatic and brave.

Track Name: Highway Lights
a night to remember
echoing the fear
along your silent ride
across distant highway lights

it hurts
that you're falling away from me
may stars guard your breath
'til storm's rolling in again
Track Name: Hopes Of Yore
Silence washed ashore
with spring's final showers
his fate is sealed
gallows ablaze amidst the lake

All souls to plead
for hopes of yore
All souls to plead
in the hands of the oar

tear-shot eyes deplore
the piercing cries of yore.
blood-shot cries ignore
the deep-drawn sighs offshore
blood-shot cries fall on deaf ears
tear-shot eyes gaze at dead fears
Track Name: Summer's Orange Haze
when skyline's dropping out of sight
I throw my cautions into the wind

so here I stand
in between summer's orange haze
feeling so free
I abandon my shelter for the very first time
I'm feeling alive for the very last time
Track Name: Polaroids and Chinese Whispers
for what is still left
far too much has gone
far too much has changed

but nothing won't last
pitch-black eyes will drown
our thoughts in grace
and our minds in shame
Track Name: Within the Nick of Time
I heard the wind crooning gently
my ballad to forget:
close your eyes
cross your arms with mine
for the stars to weep
and your light to shine
