Biography

Most rock bands are formed in pursuit of a dream. In Eternal Twilight’s case, that’s literally true. Lead singer / guitarist Samuel Morningstar was in between bands when he began to have a strange recurring dream. “I kept seeing myself in a club watching this guitarist on stage. As he was soloing the whole place caught on fire, including him. He kept playing as the flames engulfed the room. I had this dream on and off for about three months.” Shortly thereafter he met guitarist, Phynnyx, at a local music store. “We’d been jamming for about a month when somehow we started talking about dreams.” Morningstar continues, “He starts relating this weird dream where he’s onstage when the place catches on fire and he’s playing as the place burns down. I freaked out and told him that I’d had the same dream.”

Using their unusual meeting as jumping off point, the two began using their dreams to model other aspects of their career, including their infamous image. “My mask literally comes from a dream I had when I was very young. I saw myself with broad eagle wings, wearing a golden mask with a purple jewel on the forehead. Phynnyx’s mask comes from a dream of himself being a black knight in ancient times.” The other two mask designs, used on temporary musicians hired for concert performances, also come from dreams.

Eternal Twilight are hard at work on a new album, Eat The Weak, and are looking for a record label who isn’t afraid to take a step outside the normal confines of rock music.

Lyrics

Mind Of God

Written By: Samuel Morningstar

What is my purpose?
Why was I born?
What’s the reason I’m all alone?

What’s the grand plan?
What is my need?
Where will I fall when I’ve been thrown?

I’m not blind
I just can’t see
Past this flimsy, filthy façade
Searching for
The hidden keys
To have the eyes and mind of God

Coming out of light
Into the dark
Consumed by my weakness and fear

Coming back around
Back to the light
I carry strength through all my tears

I’m not blind
I just can’t see
Past this flimsy, filthy façade
Searching for
The hidden keys
To have the eyes and mind of God

It’s shock and awe
As the hellfire starts
Mass destruction
Lies in the human heart

A fires starting
Behind my eyes
It’s burning through this thin disguise

Trapped in the shadows
I stand alone
In the heart is where evil lies

Shadow Man

Written By: Morningstar

You thought life was perfect every way
You lived without thoughts of future days

I watched them make you pay
I saw you run away

Shadow man
I’m the man of darkness
Shadow man

You cried for the life lost yesterday
You fell to the ground you lost your way

I held you in my arms
I kept you safe from harm

Chorus / Solo

You stood and embraced the beast inside
You found your way through the dark to light

I taught you all I knew
I gave power to you

All Our Dreams Are Dead

Written By: Morningstar

I’m a slave
In a gilded cage
Want to flee
Set me free

I work all day
So I can eat
I go to bed
Tomorrow I’ll repeat

When do I get time to find myself?

Life’s a struggle and survival is the name
All around me our lives are just the same

Earth is a prison / our bodies are our cells
And all our dreams are dead
We’re the children of the ones who fell
And all our gods are dead
Time to awake, face reality
Cause all our dreams are dead
Can we escape this hopeless symphony?
When all our gods are dead

Anger burns
In a million turns
I’m not me
I’m not free

I live and breathe
The state commands
I want to flee
Stick my head in the sand

I’m not blind but I don’t want to see

Life’s a struggle and survival is the name
All around me our lives are just a game
