about

"Awakening" is not another debut album from an aspiring newcomer, but a solid, mature work, both production- and soundwise, that is destined to become one of the biggest highlights of 2018. Drawing inspiration from synthpop, EBM, futurepop and modern club music, Unity One have managed to create their own vision of danceable euphoric electro music that makes them really stand out in the already crowded dark scene. A combination of ultra melodic synth lines, pulsing electro beats and strong voice with meaningful lyrics presented on this album is sure to win the hearts of fans and fill the floors around the world.

Track Name: Join The Light
You feel pain
It's cutting through your skin
And you're falling down into the arms
Of insanity and sin

You so dreamed to change
The world and life around
But alone no one one can win a war
Now I see you going down

Can you hear my voice
I give a choice
To rise again above the ground
And never be the one

Who will end his days
In deep disgrace
Forgotten and alone
I'm your chance to take

Join the light with me
Join the light to see
United we are strong enough
To never fall again

Join the light with me
Join the light, you'll see,
The world you failed to change before
Will never be the same

I'm not the one
To blame you for mistakes
I've been through it all
But I've never lost my faith

And I know it's hard
To start it all anew,
Erase the pain you feel
And I can help you to
Track Name: Infrared
Look into my eyes
Look into my face, I made mistakes
How can I decide
Who will die tomorrow in my place?

I'm not a saint
Got too many missteps I regret
But I'm still the same
Still the man you never will forget

In infrared illumination
They're coming closer, don't you see
You have to put your trust in me
I believe in you so let it ever be
Discard your faulty expectations
I ain't gonna ever bend my knee
My heart still beats to forever be free

They can hunt me down
They can try to beat me, I will stand
I won't yield my ground
Fighting for what matters to the end

Oh I'm not a saint
Got too many debts I need to pay
Yet I'm still the man
Still the man who never will betray
Track Name: Today
Your sky is dark
As if the night has come forever
A sudden weight of past mistakes
Is getting hard to bear

Without a sound, you're looking down
The edge of never
So tempting to give up and make
One step to end it all

But every darkness has a light
Keep eyes wide open
And you will see
In every struggle, there's a way

No road is ever straight
So many things unspoken
Don't let it bring you down
Keep standing tall today

In every darkness there's a light
Keep your eyes open
And you will see
In every struggle, there's a way

No road is ever straight
So many things unspoken
Don't let it bring you down
Keep standing tall today

A silver lining in the sky
Don't ever let it fade away
I know you have the strength inside
To overcome the dark
Don't give it up today

We only have one life to live
The end, it doesn't mean relief
You have to learn how to believe
You've got the force inside
Got the strength inside
Track Name: Leave Me Confined
Every day is just another fight
That never stops until you burn
Right down to ashes deep inside
It's the lesson that I had to learn

Still all these faceless empty souls
Keep trying harder day by day
To build themselves a million walls
But it will never save them anyway

I've found asylum in my mind
A perfect place of serenity
You'd better leave me confined
For eternity

Every day is just another step
Into a future so unclear
Nobody knows what lies ahead
It breeds a devastating fear

I know this feeling way too well
When it gets deeper to the core
Brainwashing free will cell by cell
But it won't break my balance anymore

I've found asylum in my mind
A perfect place of serenity
You'd better leave me confined
For eternity

Every day is just the same old song
You play a game that no one wins
It's hard to tell the right from wrong
When nothing's really what it seems

The line between the good and bad
Is getting thinner day by day
Who will survive the final stand?
It doesn't matter for me anyway
Track Name: Tomorrow
Tomorrow
Will come and heal my heart
And sorrow
Won't ever try to tear my soul apart

That promise
you gave to me tonight
Tomorrow
I'll turn to steel and raise it for the fight

Please let me save this night
I know the way to make things right

Now's the time
To join our hands
To cross the line
That separates our longing hearts in two

And your eyes
I see the truth
Let's leave behind
The fear the day will never become true

Tomorrow
will come and bring the light
To follow,
To walk this way and never step aside

That promise
You gave to me tonight
Please keep it
Tomorrow I will need you by my side
Track Name: Reflection
You're trying hard to make me
Your vision of a better man
But that will never happen
I better stay the way I am

Not afraid
To make mistakes
Choosing my direction
After all
It's what it takes
To be my own reflection

You wanna make me follow
Along your each and every step
But that will make me hollow
I better walk my way instead

Not afraid
To make mistakes
Choosing my direction
After all
It's what it takes
To be my own reflection

And I can't say I'm sorry
For failing all your masterplans
I'm writing my own story
And I can take the consequence
Track Name: Reality
It seems so hard to break the silence
To rise from your knees and voice your mind
It's hard to raise a sword against the violence
But someone really needs to start the fight

Faster than reality
We generate your dreams tonight
Without fear and vanity
The destination is your mind

When you wake up, you'll spread your wings
To fight this world of dark and ice
Convicted by your memories
To give your life as sacrifice

It feels so wrong to see them being
Afraid to stand against the dark
No one deserves to live with eyes unseeing
So someone really needs to light a spark
Track Name: Timeless Dream
Trapped inside a cage so cold
Waiting for the sun to rise
Time is running out
And all I've got
Is watching my life
Passing before my eyes

It doesn't matter what they do
To ruin my belief
I fight for you, I'll die for you
For you, my timeless dream

Drifting with my memories
Far beyond these concrete walls
I would never like
To change my life
I'm equally proud of
My virtues and my faults

It doesn't matter what they do
To ruin my belief
I fight for you, I'll die for you...

I know one day
It will come true
The chains will break
For me and you

One day I know
It will come true
The chains will fall
For me and you
Track Name: Bring The Storm
The sea is rough on the horizon
The crashing wave is closing in
But we are blind in our denial
No sight to see the end is near

Our towers holding up the heavens
Built on the blood of those who fell
We pray to gods and worship devils
We've lost our paradise to hell

Bring the storm
Crashing the illusion
Washing everything away
Show us where we've gone astray
From being human

The clouds are gath'ring in the distance
Our final sign of what's to come
We will forfeit our existence
If we don't see it's all so wrong

But all we do is keep believing
We are the only chosen ones
It's gone too far beyond forgiving
No chances left, the die's been cast
Track Name: Awakening
Eyes open wide but they don't see
All the pain and agony
Blind to anything around
But sweet illusions

We're comatose, so deep asleep
Hearts once brave no longer beat
We are locked and kept away
From all confusions

How could this happen, tell me why
So easily we all surrendered
And chose to live a perfect lie
With dreams not worth being remembered

Eyes open wide but they don't see
We have lost reality
Captives to our golden cells
Deprived of senses

We're comatose, we live and die
Afraid to wake up and defy
We fear to raise our voice and face
The consequences

But when we all begin to wake
Our silent voice will turn to thunder
So strong and loud enough to break
And rip the lies around asunder

To make this world a better place
A better place forever after - Wake up

Wake up and let the light inside
Awaken all the hearts from sleeping
You'll see how light and dark collide
Awakening a new beginning
Track Name: Reality (Reprise)
It seems so hard to break the silence
to rise from your knees and voice your mind
It's hard to raise a sword against the violence
But someone really needs to start the fight

Faster than reality
we generate your dreams tonight
Without fear and vanity
The destination is your mind

When you wake up, you'll spread your wings
to fight this world of dark and ice
Convicted by your memories
to give your life as sacrifice

It feels so wrong to see you being
Afraid to stand against the dark
No one deserves to live with eyes unseeing
So someone really needs to light a spark
