The Storm 08:02
Let me tell you An unheard story Deep blue oceans Moonlit night sky Five minutes only took three seconds It happened so fast I didn't even realize I lost all my possessions Even faster than water falls He stood next to me I looked again The walls became the floor, he was gone. Nothing I could do Drifting away Losing you Drifting along On the high waves of the sea Diving into my conscience Should I risk my life to save him Will I confront the gods of the ocean Drifting away Losing you Drifting along On the high waves of A roar of thunder as the wood cries in pain Clouds of rain are starting to come down While I can only watch you fall (Watch you fall) Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Sinking deeper Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Sinking deeper Sinking deeper Time’s slowing down Sinking deeper Just let me pass Ocean keeper Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Sinking deeper Sinking deeper Losing it all Losing it all Just let me pass Ocean keeper Time’s slowing down Time’s slowing down Sinking deeper Sinking deeper Just let me pass Ocean keeper I’m losing it all Losing it all I'm losing It will never stop sinking Drifting away

Haste 05:37
We should know better Than following patterns Erase days as they go by Desperately we adjust our needs To what should become our successful lives. Bound to time we are Fighting for decent scars Never reminded Of who we are Why not enjoy the ride Search for a better life Why can’t we open our minds And break the barrier I’ve fought through eternal nights Uncertain of the path that I chose to take But I’m giving it everything Knowing there is no escape From this cycle of haste My head keeps spinning ‘round There is always something that troubles me Am I lazy giving in? It’s draining all of my energy Bound to time we are Fighting for decent scars Never reminded Of who we are Why not enjoy the ride Search for a better life We just have to open our minds We’re already there I'm breathing to find It's moving away from me I'm living a lie The things that I would say The places I would go to The dreams I'd recreate While doors of gold close behind me Finally I feel free As the pressure’s relieved Time won’t wait for you Find the flame to pursue

Prisoner 06:48
I have lost my way My mind in disarray I wish I could but I can't let it go There's not much left to change Places appear inside my head again Fragments of the past Can't remember who I was or what I thought Regret is what comes last There's something in the air I can't escape A prisoner of my own memories Goodbye You are from a day I thought I'd left behind So why do I have to revisit it again Every time It seems to happen every time Now I can’t find the way back home How long will it last if there is no solution To this confusion To make these thoughts disappear You don’t have to forget yourself To feel alive Take time to adjust You could bury your old demons But their shadows are meant to last There is something in the air I can't escape up until now 'Cause I can't do this any longer How do I survive inside this maze If I keep stumbling upon dead ends I have lost my way And no one to relate I'm on my own now Fighting what’s inside me I've failed myself twice now As I try to break the rule I wish I could But I can’t let it go I've waited far too long With looking forward

[SMOOTH SKIN] It's such a painful moment When you realize They can't keep lifting the weight That's dragging you down Stumbling through the night They’ll never know Tethered to their fleeting light ‘Cause I’ll never show But without them the poisoning Keeps seeping in and draining me There's something trapped in here Waiting to go off It is fighting to break free I can’t let it out Let me out Reach out here Take my hand, we are here for you You do not have to fight this war On your own [WAR WITHIN] The gathering clouds taking away the light Trying to resist but know it won’t bide And so I’ll wait for the storm to take me And then vanish without a sight Come on then, let's fight I'm sick of the long nights Of hot guilt and cold ice Of being haunted by my own glare I will break free of this nightmare The drain is clogged The way is fogged The road is blocked I’m being sucked into And so in the end, alone after all But I know I'll win this time Waging the war within

Vicious 05:50
Carelessly I want Desperately I need To be in this place That's tearing me apart Something gnawing me Doesn’t go away Trying to untie The knot inside Why’re you still here waiting to get out You've been here all day, wasting your time The digital river's consuming you Suspend your work for now You can't work in this state anyway Having no hopes or dreams to chase Maybe this is all just a phase I just won't understand Meaning and purpose are hard to find Seeking a way to clear my mind Without being blind I just can't I'm stuck inside this place Filled with melancholy Trying to escape this maze Only gets worse for me Inside this cycle now Fueled by guilt and doubt Struggle to tell myself I just have to find the light Parasitic way of life, mindless waiting (Wasting, expecting) Dreaming away the chances you had (Deceiving yourself) Do you really expect To get anywhere at all Idling the way you do day by day Do you really believe yourself Saying you can answer the question Just look away Still stuck inside this place Filled with melancholy Trying to escape this maze Only gets worse for me Now, still inside this cycle Fueled by guilt and doubt All I have to do Is just to find the light

Crossroads 04:40
Opportunities collide I know it’s part of life Just don’t ask me to choose yet The arrow only goes one way and It’s like I can’t speak my mind My dreams fade in real time I can’t deny the truth seems hard to find Who are you What’s your narrative A fool are you The answers are right here Have I evaded this life for too long? Afraid to cave in, can’t you see? Pause, and count the minutes twice You might not live that life You're timing is important Every move has to be perfect Don’t forget anything wise You will need advice But leave it there Get out on the road Why does it take so long A wave of ice cold water Made me understand How hard it is to find a fire To get warm enough Have I evaded this life for too long? Afraid to cave in, can’t you see? Don’t look for an Easy way out

Luna 06:50
Sweet child, don't you know You can't just keep dreaming And forget your future Don't fool yourself You cannot and never will fly away Luna, why can’t you Just take me away And let me fly Show me the way You should, you can't, you Must get your head out of the clouds (Get your head out of the clouds) Perform, obey, focus Don’t throw your life away (Don't throw your life away) She's so neglecting you should know What has she done, so innocent I built a paradise in the sky A safe place to reconcile Falling through the clouds again Crashing back to the ground Luna, I'm here after all And now I Can finally fly

about

Skylake is a Dutch alternative rock group that is active since 2015. The current formation consists of Bart Laan on lead guitars and vocals, Charlie Feld on bass guitar, Suzan van den Engel on vocals and harp, and Arjan Laan on drums. While initially playing covers of their favorite artists, the band quickly shifted focus towards writing and performing their own material. In the second half of 2018, the band completed their debut album ‘In Orbit’ after an extensive writing process of four years. The album contains seven original tracks, and is musically informed by bands such as Karnivool, Tesseract, Anathema and Porcupine Tree, though mostly featuring their own sound. It alters between atmospheric, melodic and rhythmic styles, and varies in its intensity from calmer acoustic and ambient sections to more guitar-heavy pieces.
