Sven B. Schreiber Pat Sanders' "Drifting Sun" is usually categorized as a neo-prog band, and as such it's among the best this genre has to offer. The melancholic mood emanating from the exquisite melodies and exciting orchestrations on this album is really hypnotic, taking the listener away to higher spheres. As long as there are bands like this in prog music, there's still hope that prog won't collapse in megalomaniacal nothingness. Favorite track: Wings of Hope.

Twilight is in my opinion, their best work so far, a NeoProg highlight for all melodic romantics among the proggerners.

Drifting Sun have made another leap forward with their latest album, Twilight.

Track Name: Twilight (the Other Side of Life)
In the beginning there was dark
There was nothing else to see
In the beginning there was dark


Welcome to the start of a life of incertitude
Doubtfulness clouding your eyes
Tremble in your heart, and a conscience of iron and
water together inside

Waking up

Sun in the morning it comes and
Lights up a warning telling
Nobody and everyone
There’s a new beginning comes the sun

But the shadow of the darkness begins to
Creep across the morning telling
Everyone and Anyone
There’s a ending just behind the sun

Twilight is where we find the truth
Hand in hand with shadows
The light for all to see

Come again and come tomorow there’s a
Place for all a place for none a place for
Everything you ever thought was True, but
then you looked and it was Nothing that you
ever knew became a Lie to take your
breath from you but still you Fight to find the
truth behind the Darkness holds the light
illuminates Illuminates the sky

Twilight is where we find the truth
Hand in hand with shadows
The light for all to see

Twilight drifting over every sensation
Nothing to stop me rising
Nothing to stop me sinking down
Only my own hesitations

Could it be a chance to make it better again
Could it be a chance to make it living hell
Trapped on neither side
Trapped on the other side
Could it be a chance to make it through again


Could it be a chance to make it better again
Could it be a chance to make it living hell
Trapped on neither side
Trapped on the other side
Could it be a chance to make it through again


Look beyond your endless Twilight
To see the dawn beyond
To see the dawn beyond
Wake to start the day


Look beyond the endless twilight
To see the night beyond
To see the night beyond
Sleep your life away

See the dawn beyond
See the night beyond


Give me peace
No peace can be had in this twilight
Give me peace
Your peace is denied in this twilight
Give me peace
No peace to be had in this twilight
Give me peace

Look beyond your endless Twilight
To see the dawn beyond
To see the dawn beyond
Wake to start the day

Look beyond the endless twilight
To see the night beyond
To see the night beyond
Sleep your life away

Look beyond your endless Twilight
To see the dawn beyond
To see the dawn beyond
Wake to start the day

Look beyond your endless Twilight
Look beyond your endless Twilight
Look beyond your endless Twilight
Track Name: Wings of Hope
Hope flies on an open wing
Blinded to the pains of man
Forward to the sun she flies
Take me into your arms

I never know
What a life in the light feels like
You alone hold the power
I alone hold the key

Face into the light
There’s a dawn in the distance
Please grant me the power
Let me see what you see

See the dawn beyond

Far and away and anew
There’s a way to get through all this
Maddening, maddening
Time will away for anew
And a surety somewhere there’s
Clarity, clarity

See the dawn beyond

There’s hope for the future
There’s hope for the past
There’s hope for forever
If you make this feeling last
There’s hope for the future
There’s hope for the future
Won’t you let me see the light?

Cover my insecure
Cover my doubt unsure
Cover my fear alone
Carry me safely home

Hope flies on an open wing
Blinded to the pains of man
Forward to the sun she flies
Take me into your arms
Track Name: Mystery of Lies
I wear a faded crown
A cloak of smiles and laughter
I dance a jaded dance
Eleven ever after
And beneath it all
A mystery of lies
A mystery of lies

When you feel alone
Fire in your soul
Never be alone
When there’s fear in your soul

Hiding from those who’d save me
Cower away I’m fading
Time after time forgave me
Fear of the truth enslave me

Another side you see
Another side from me
And deep within my eyes
A mystery of lies

See how I shine so brightly
Black heart concealed inside me
Now you will cheer and praise me
Morrow the fear betrays me

Take a look inside my looking glass
There’s another world inside, you see
I dance a jaded dance
I wear a cloak of smiles and laughter

Always twilight in my looking glass
But I never know if light or dark is rising
So I dance my jaded dance
Beneath my cloak of smiles and laughter

Another side you see
Another side from me
And deep within my eyes
A mystery of lies

Take a look inside my looking glass
There’s another world inside, you see
I dance a jaded dance

I wear a faded crown
A cloak of smiles and laughter
I dance my jaded dance

Hiding from those who’d save me
Cover my crown that’s fading
Time after time forgave me
Fear of it all enslave me
See how I dance so brightly
Jaded and cold enflames me
Now you would cheer and praise me
Mystery of lies betrays me
Track Name: Soldiers
When night follows day, I hear the calling, calling, to go
This twilight alone, it sees me falling, falling, and slow.
Shine it aloud, moonlight in the day, shine it aloud, shadows in the neverwhere
The sun in the night, the storms are raging, raging

Soldiers on the mountainside appear, they come for me
A smile across my lips and waiting for it all to end
And ever closer there's a line, I must not cross
A smile across my lips and waiting for soldiers' release
And ever closer to the edge, I bear this cross
They must be coming for me
They fade away
Come back to me, come back to me, come back to me!

Shine it aloud, and the light that casts a shadow will be gone
Shine it aloud, and the light that casts the shadow will be gone

Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight
Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight
Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight

Violet light be comes the horizon
so distant to me now
Listen to me now
Scarlet light is covering
Every one
Never seen before
Listen to me now
Blackest light is seen by the
Sick and the
Weakest of us all
Listen to me now
Hope flies on an open wing
Shine it loud

Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight
Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight

Sun and the moon collide
The dusk and dawn the night the morn.
Sun and the moon collide
When hope dissolves the light be gone.

See, facing you, facing me, all you see, of me
Nothing that you look for
See inside my eyes
Look in my soul. So much poverty, clearly
Riches on my face

Sun and the moon collide
The dusk and dawn the night the morn.
Sun and the moon collide
When hope dissolves the light be gone.

I can’t go on.
It’s all so gone.
The sun, the moon, the light, the dark,
the dawn, the night, the twilight, is gone.
All so gone.
All so gone.

But maybe…
Maybe…
Track Name: Summer Skies
A spark across the sky
Telling everyone
There's a new horizon
Just behind the sun

I look on the other side
And I try to see
I want to believe it's true
But I can't believe

Whenever I catch a glimpse
Of sunlight in the sky
I want to believe it's true
Believe my eyes

There's something ahead of me
And I feel the shining light
I want to believe it's true
But I can't believe

Hold me back and I succumb to the night again
Hold me down and I will cry for the dawn again
Hold me back and I succumb to the dark again
Hold me down and I will cry for the dawn again

Shine out to the twilight night again
And face the dawn alone
Look into the distance
See it all

There's something inside of me
And I feel the healing light
I want to believe it's true
But I can't believe

Hold me back and I succumb to the night again
Hold me down and I will cry for the dawn again
Hold me back and I succumb to the dark again
Hold me down and I will cry for the dawn again

There's something inside of me
I don't understand
Does the twilight hold the key?
I can't believe it’s true
There's something inside of me
I don't understand
Does the twilight hold the key?
I can't believe

One life I would dance in summer skies
This life I would dance if only I could
Last life I could be in ecstasy
But this life it's just slipping away, away

One life I would dance in summer skies
This life I would dance if only I could
Last life I could be in ecstasy
But this life, this life…

There's a hope that's inside of me
There's a light alive
And if I wake to see the day again
I'll break the endless twilight

I could dance in the summer skies
If only I believed
I could live in this ecstasy
But it’s slipping away.

Break away the pain
When you believe it,
When you believe it.
Oh, Life in love again
The way you believe it,
When you believe it.
Oh, find your love again
When You believe it
When you believe it
Oh, Break away your pain
When you believe it
When you believe it

There's something inside of me
I can feel the healing light
I want to believe it's true
I almost believe
Track Name: Remedy
A secret world within my dream
A tear right through the veil
The time extending through the years

I can feel it’s
Meant to be
Oh, I’m still hanging on
A smile to camera
Shimmering
Shivering
Find me a remedy

Let go, Let go
Find me the remedy
Let go, Let go
There’s something inside of me
Let go, Let go
Reflecting the energy
Let go, Let go
Find me the remedy

An aging actor in the tavern bar
A man with nothing left to lose
He asks if I have seen his birthday card
And I’m so sorry that I cannot help him with his blues

I’ve sunk again, but moving faster now
The wolves are howling for my soul
A green mosaic paranoia screen
I can’t forget I have all the control

There are things that I’m not telling you
Talking to you through the glass
Heat and shiver let it go,
Crystallise my vision fast

Understand the things they’re warning me
I seen the light from through the veil
I’ve seen the darkness on the other side
I’ve seen the consequence of holding on for ever and ever

Let go, Let go
Find me the remedy
Let go, Let go
There’s something inside of me
Let go, Let go
Reflecting the energy
Let go, Let go
Find me the remedy
Track Name: Outside
So easy for you
So easy on the outside
Looking in

So easy for you
So easy on the outside

And you turn away
Your fears are mine, your fears are mine

Laugh at me
Cry for me

You don’t know the pain that I’ve been living in
It's not that easy to imagine as you think
Take away the judgement that you give

Pushing forward I can see you standing there and
Reaching out your hand but only to take it away

You deem me to be too unworthy of your grace,
Your mercy
You’ve a lot to learn about Love.

You can't help me
Stand on the outside
Your love, only say the word.

Reaching forward I can see you standing there and
Take away your hand to mock me and punish me

Why, you deem me to be too unworthy of your grace,
your mercy
You’ve a lot to learn about Love.

You can't help me
Stand on the outside
Your love, nothing more than words.

I can feel it’s meant to be
Now I have the remedy.

And I’m feeling alive.
I’m feeling alive.
I’m feeling alive.
For the first time in such a long, long time
I will make it through.

Now I feel it’s meant to be
Now I have the remedy

And I’m feeling alive
(let go, let go)
I’m feeling so alive
For the first time in Oh, such a long time
I’ll see you on the Outside
Track Name: Remain
Shining sky
At last I see this sun is rising
At last I see the clouds are breaking
The night becomes the day

Never again will the twilight enslave me
Never again will your answers betray me
The blinding light will make me see

Split the air with a screaming cry
That come tomorrow this tear in my
Eye will quench every fire that you
Ever set to burn the night alive
Over and over I broke my spine to
See in the darkness what future could be
Mine, but never again will twilight
Fool me with its everlasting lies

How could ever I be free?
When all you give to me
Are questions from the other side?
Now the power comes to me.
From twilight take the key
And make it to the other side.

Now the power lies in me.
At last I have the key
To make it to the other side.

Seven ages of fear have held me down
Seven glimmers of hope and glory made me rise
And the twilight covered it all, a bondage to my clarity
A mask to turn me back upon myself and
Lose my way in distortion
But now I know, the seven ages were merely flashes of black
In a sky of golden blue.
I remain who I was, before Twilight led me down to you.

Sun in the morning
It lights up a warning
Telling nobody and everyone
There’s a new beginning comes the sun

Another sight you see
Another side of me
And fading from my eyes
A Mystery of Lies

Look beyond the break of day
See the night so far away
Come and go it must go on
Twilight but a moment long
Day beyond the fall of night
Twilight leads to light

Trapped on another side
Trapped on neither side
Have I got a chance to make it home again
Now I have the answer
Now I have the key
Twilight just lie it’s not a mystery
Make it to another side
Never trapped on either side
Have I got a chance to make it home again
Now I have the answer
Now I have the key
Twilight just lie it’s not a mystery


Soldiers on the mountain
Come to take me home
Find a different story
Now you live alone

Neverending Twilight
Neverending Day
Neverending Darkness
Come to find your way

Look beyond the curtain
See the shining star
Listen to the sound that trickles
Through the tavern bar

Find the ageing actor
Tell him all you saw
Walk away forgetting him
And learn a little more

I remain in darkness
I remain in light
I remain in Twilight
Now the ending is in sight

I remain in darkness
I remain in light
I remain in Twilight
Now the path I choose is right

I remain in Twilight
