about

It was September 2 of 2015 when Aylan, a three-year-old Syrian boy, was found lying lifeless on a shore in Turkey. The small child was running away from a war, towards a better life along with his parents. Thousands of people out there are still trying to escape from this living nightmare. Dedicated to all these people and to Aylan himself, we release the same-titled single "Aylan".

lyrics

Lyrics:

Hanging from the mast, for a life beyond the horizon,
hopes and dreams – oh – fighting against the sea.
Prisoners of life, seek a new beginning,
souls trapped in a never-ending war.

A timeless tale since the dawn of days,
a timeless tale into this cruel world.
A timeless tale until the end of days,
a timeless tale until the end of the world.

Our eyes, wide-open, yet are so blind to see,
what lies on our doorstep.
What a child wanted, what a child will never be
and what the Man deserves to take.

A timeless tale since the dawn of days,
a timeless tale into this cruel world.
A timeless tale until the end of days,
a timeless tale until the end of the world.
