about

This is our "cover" of what is currently the oldest known fully notated song with lyrics in the world. It was found on a tombstone from roughly 2000 years ago, and while we took liberties with arrangement and distorted acoustic guitar solos, the vocal melody is exactly as it was written.

From the forthcoming album "Luna"

lyrics

While you live,
Shine.
Have no grief at all.
Life exists only for a short while,
And time demands its toll.
