about

Band's first promotional EP, recorded, mixed and mastered in a home studio. Self-published.

Butterflies marks the band's endavour into mixing memorable lyrics and melodies with more expansive compositions. As a result Dream Atlas recorded 6 tracks very different from one another, bonded together by the band's sound.

The EP starts with eponymous 'Butterflies', a catchy two tone song with a more eerie verse changing into an open chorus. The song build into a full blown, ambient guitar solo and ends in heavy, half-time chorus. The lyrics talk about freedom of music.

'Brave New Day' is a representation of the band's experimentation with styles - written in the rhythm of a tango with a somewhat familiar, classical riff, the song suddenly changes into samba style breakdown.

'Judgement', the third song on the EP, makes a complete shift in atmosphere, with it's ambient, eerie sound, slow pace and echoing vocals.

'Vincent' is the longest track on the album. Written in style of a suite it chages it's tone twice, shifting form a steady, heavy sound to an disturbing waltz after which it switches to a fast, heavy motif that ends with a return to the steady sound of the 1st part of the song. The lyrics tell you a story of a man that has lost himself in his delusions and dreams, unable to live in the real world which reminds him of nightmares. He retreats into his fantasies, where he is finally at peace.

'Moonlight', the only ballad on the album, tells you a story of an unrequitted love. The person singing dreams of the one he loves, unable to let go - finally he comes to peace with the fact, that he will remember her forever. The song starts with a quiet acoustic intro, building into a have, slow pace ballad.

'Jesień' is a song written in Polish, that literally translates into 'Autumn' - it is a metapthorical poem about change of seasons, one's anxieties and lusts.

Track Name: Butterflies
Wherever I go, whenever I dream
You are the muse of my dreams
There are many dangers, many lonely roads
But I still believe because you’re my hope

We are like Butterflies
We try to live our fragile lives
But I believe and I calm down
‘Cause somewhere exists a place where we are free
Track Name: Brave New Day
Stand and destroy your fear and darkness
Look at the ashes that you left behind
Breathe, can you feel the savour of your wrath?
Raise your head to the horizon
Your glory
Can you see bright bright flash? Go!
Out of shade to the light and feel
The endless power that’s inside OF you
Endless desire that you have WITHIN
Your glory

Something will change the world you live in
Someday you will feel the presence

I’ve seen it shining

You know you are on your own
Put up a fight, don’t let them brake you
Run, take your chance
And create a brave new day

Walk through the fields of desolation
And leave it all behind
Watch as the sun is rising
From the dust of an innocence
And seize the fragile hope

Something will change the world you live in
Someday you will feel the presence

I’ve seen it shining

You know you are on your own
Put up a fight, don’t let them brake you
Run, take your chance
And create a brave new day
Track Name: Judgement
Did you equip me with all this fear and strangeness?
Do you feel happy when you see blood on my hands?
Can you still live in this false sweet elevation?
Do you believe in the perfect creation?

Throw me in the fire
Bring me back to my soul again
Fight for idealism
Die as incomplete one

Are we still standing on the same side of barricade?
We don’t have weapons but we cut like a major blaze
Who is attacking and who is the helpless lamb?
Who can still judge and who can kill in the modern way?

Throw me in the fire
Bring me back to my soul again
Fight for idealism
Die as incomplete one
Throw me in the fire
Bring me back to my soul again
Fight for idealism
Die as incomplete one
Track Name: Vincent
Come little closer let me tell you a story
About the man who lost all of his glory
He once was a boy different than others
Living his life in a cage of his mind

When the night was closing its curtains
He dreamt of creatures spiders and monsters
Cracking walls of reality
By his soul he painted pictures of life

From the within I’m feeling something strange is calling
Is it you or me you better run
And when the day is dawning I hear my fears are coming
They are behind a corner chasing me

Once his mother told him go outside to the world
These games that you play are just in your head!
But he couldn’t say a word silence tangled him again
The soul from out that shadow shall be lifted nevermore

From the within I’m feeling something strange is calling
Is it you or me you better run
And when the day is dawning I hear my fears are coming
They are behind a corner chasing me

Hey everybody look at me now
Shut your mouths and hear what I’m saying
I’m here alone nobody can see me
I’m king of the world and you’re just a cattle
I’ll dance to the end of the world that you know
I’ll stand and smile watching you burn
Insanity reached its highest peak
Look at you now you gonna die!
Track Name: Moonlight
Silent whisper waking me up
Cold destiny’s hand touching my face
Drowning in my head forgetting how it is to live
Days are passing flowers are wilting
Her presence seems to last I can almost touch it
Now I close my temple empty like never before

I was fooling myself
That she’ll come back to me
With the moonlight
But she’s gone

I’ve heard that voice before
It used to take away all the pain
Watching her dance so delicate in front of me
The echo of her laugh still in back of my head
My ship is coming in right to the nowhere
And I’m staring straight into the shining sun

I was fooling myself
That she’ll come back to me
With the moonlight
But she’s gone
Shouting deep inside
Standing in the rain
I’ve buried you
In my dreams

In every place in every moment
I see you I feel you
Wherever I am, wherever I’ll be
It’ll never go away
Track Name: Jesień
Pod drzwiami rano ktoś zostawił list
Opisał wszystko to, co dolega mi
Złapany w sieć swych własnych kłamstw i win
Tonę w morzu, a na brzegu Ty

Jesień przyszła rano dziś, okryła liśćmi moje sny
A ja biegnę wciąż, w ramiona swoich żądz
Jesień przyszła rano dziś, okryła liśćmi moje sny
A ja biegnę wciąż, w ramiona swoich żądz

Szukając prawd nietrwałych jak jesienny wiatr
Zabrnąłem w to, przed czym ostrzegał mnie świat
Cel okazał się mniej wart, niż cały ten bieg
Chciałbym uciec ale nie, nie poddam się

Jesień przyszła rano dziś, okryła liśćmi moje sny
A ja biegnę wciąż, w ramiona swoich żądz
Jesień przyszła rano dziś, okryła liśćmi moje sny
A ja biegnę wciąż, w ramiona swoich żądz
