    With our new album, 'Short Tales & Tall Shadows', our intent was to be a lot different from anything we had done before. We wanted to create a dark artistic album, more Goth than before, with a strong flavor of theatricality but also with a bit more of a modern sound than its predecessors.

Lineup: MIKE POUGOUNAS [Vocals, Keyboards], HARRIS STAVRAKAS [Bass], MIKE "Jabbar" TZAVARAS [Drums], AKIS NIKOLAIDIS [Guitars]. ... more

Track Name: A1 King Pest the First
KING PEST THE FIRST

This is the rotten side of the city
That only crooks prefer to share
The air is thick and tastes like poison
The hideout is for those who dare

There are six friends 'round the table
In the undertaker’s lair
One of them floating in a coffin
He shook and took a breath of air...

TREASON shouted everyone
As they slapped away my grin
TREASON was the word that echoed
In this parish of death and sin

''Be our guest''
Said King Pest
The First

The skeleton chandelier hung
Above the Queen's funeral shroud
While the man wrapped as a mummy
Could hardly move or make a sound

Ana-Pest, the Arch Duchess,
Poured some liquor in a skull
But there was one more man among them
Whose funeral clothes were rather dull...

TREASON shouted everyone
As they slapped away my grin
TREASON was the word that echoed
In this parish of death and sin

''Be our guest''
Said King Pest
The First

''Know then that in these dominions I am monarch, and here rule with undivided empire under the title of 'King Pest Τhe First'.''
Forever
Track Name: A2 Pen Like A Knife
PEN LIKE A KNIFE

Most of the people
Are afraid, of being alone…
When lips taste like poison,
They keep swallowing till the end.

You hate, the one you loved once
So you write down how you feel…
Words, hurt like bullets
So make sure, they won’t return

Pen,
Pen like a knife
Pen down her name
And go on with your life

Pen,
Pen like a knife
Carving his name
And go on with your life…

You break up for awhile
And then you try again…
Don’t you know, if it breaks once
It will never work again.
Track Name: A3 My Reaper
MY REAPER

The voices... they're calling my name...
In darkness... every day is the same
And as the music plays...
I long to end my days.

The heartache... it's so painful to feel...
In silence... The torment's so real...
Crawling deeper and deeper...
So close now to my reaper.

And as the music plays...
I long to end my days...

Spinning around and around
Till my feet don't touch the ground

But a hope that is tomorrow
Could end these tears of sorrow...

Spinning around and around
Till my feet don't touch the ground
Track Name: A4 Down the Rabbit Hole
DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

Call me day or night
Call me anytime and I'll be there.
I will catch a plane or the late night train just to find you.
In a Babylonian desert you and me.
Laughing hard in the shade of a palm tree.

Message me in time and we'll sip our wine in Alaska.
I will fight the waves and 1000 brave ones but I'll find you
In an Amazonian forest you might be,
Hostage of a tribe that lives upon the trees.

Love can get me anywhere,
Down the rabbit hole
For your love

Call me day or night
Call me anytime and I'll be there.
I will catch a plane or the late night train just to find you.
In a psychedelic dream I saw us two
Playing hide and seek upon the moon

Love can get me anywhere,
Down the rabbit hole
For your love
Track Name: B1 Garden of Mazes
GARDEN OF MAZES

There's a house over the hills,
Where a little lady lives,
There's a maze around the house
And she tries to find the way out.

The world is distant from her room
She stares for hours to find a route
As she runs near,
To what seemed clear,
She finds the exit's disappeared

Garden of Mazes
Where we once came to play
But we lost ourselves along the way
Garden of Mazes
An impossible place
We run inside it, deep inside our brains

There's a man looking for you
Little lady can you hear?
He's calling out your name
Cause to him you are so dear
But the hour strikes heavy, now it's clear

Garden of Mazes
Where we once came to play
But we lost ourselves along the way
Garden of Mazes
An impossible place
We run inside it, deep inside our brains
Track Name: B2 Deadly Dollhouse
DEADLY DOLLHOUSE

Tonight...

Like every other night
While all humans are sleeping
Us, the toys that is, come out of the woodwork
And we are gathered to dance.

Just like every night
I am happy to dance with my darling, Lucy
My favorite doll.

She's been here for a long time.
Long before me, long before the Master bought me.
But I fell in love with her from the first time I saw her.

So every night,
I walk down the stairs right after 12 o'clock when all humans are sleeping,
When the Master is snoring
To meet her
.
(sigh)

But tonight...

Tonight Lucy is not here.
All the other couples are dancing in front of the fireplace.
I asked around but she is not here.

It's snowing outside.
And I don't wanna think that she is out.
I sit by the fireplace.
Watching the flames dance...

And there...

There...

I saw her.
I saw her shoes in the fireplace.
And her eyes looking at me.

Never to be...
Never to be...
Track Name: B3 Shut Up
SHUT UP

There comes a time
When you have enough of someone
Cause when he speaks
He ruins your whole day

No more lies
No more of his mad behavior
Say it loud
Spit it in his face

That he better shut up shut up shut up
Say it like you mean it
Shut up shut up shut up
Don't you show your face round here no more

They do you wrong
Thinking you'll be here forever
They won't change
Don't be that naive

No more lies
No more of his mad behavior
Say it loud
Spit it in his face
Track Name: B4 Tarot Card Reader
Tarot Card Reader

I’m sure you always wonder what
The future holds for you
What’s wrong. What greater secrets,
Which past is best to choose…

Stars, signs, and constellations
It’s all the same to her
A deck of cards and some red wine
That’s everything she needs….

Tarot Card
Tarot Card Reader
If what you see is what you get
Then treat these cards with full respect.

She asks the High Priestess
The Empress or the Fool
A sip of wine for every card
To follow her own rule…

So if you wanna know more
Pay her, she’s not a liar.
Before she lays dreaming
and wine will get her higher…

Tarot Card
Tarot Card Reader
If what you see is what you get
Then treat these cards with full respect.

She can read cards for others
But these cards won’t reveal
Why darkness took her lover…
Who is it to blame?
Who is it to hate?
