Stéphane Gallay Nocturna réalise dans cet album une alchimie impressionnante, une passerelle à travers trente ans de métal, du Hard-FM au métal progressif, en passant par le métal symphonique – peu importe l’ordre, en fait. Toute nostalgie mise à part, ce Lucidity est à écouter de toute urgence. Favorite track: Revelations.

Track Name: Lucidity
We're higher than the sky
We know just what to do
We aim for the stars and the brightest moon
We go so far away
but not far from we lay
Aspirations near but this will not last

Sometimes dreams can be reality
Strange emotions sometimes you feel
Torn and broken, cold and confused
This is your dream, this is YOU!

Temptations always there
You feel compelled to stay
You try to understand
But it's never there
Now come and take my hand
I'll show you what to do
I'll guide you to the light of this
Of this darkened moon...

Sometimes dreams can be reality
Strange emotions sometimes you feel
Torn and broken cold and confused
This is your dream, this is YOU!

Lucidity! You're on your knees, you fall from grace!
You know it's there, so come impaired
To the fall!
Track Name: Revelations
I can wake up any moment
I'm not gonna get a second chance
I'm not gonna let this moment slowly slip away
I gotta make it work both ways

And we feel
That our lives are an open sea
Until the day
When we give up honesty

We will rise, into the night
Until you come with me, so you can see
Change the path, ignore the past
Woah, yeeah!
This is my revelation

In this dream begins a calling
What lies beneath is something that is left unsaid
Her hesitation causes me to stray
I'm already too late

We will rise, into the night
Until you come with me, so you can see
Change the path, ignore the past
Woah, yeeah!
This is my revelation

We found our way to open doors, that lead a way from this
Unending, descending
State of mind

We will rise, into the night
Until you come with me, so you can see
Change the path, ignore the past
Woah, yeeah!
This is my revelation!
Track Name: Gaining Solace
We have fallen, to aspersion
Now's our time to make our stand
Lies and fire, cries of pyre
Let's break these binds and change the hand!

We ride the dream
We are now free
Soon you will see
This is not me

Here's to gaining solace

Tried to hide us, then defy us
Suppress our minds so can't tell
We are growing, dreams awoken
Together we will give them hell!

We ride the dream
We are now free
Soon you will see
I will be me

We are now free, my time has come
Open my eyes, we see the sun
We stand together, one by one
The sting of desire
My time has come!

We are now free, my time has come
Open my eyes, we see the sun
We stand together, one by one
The sting of desire, my time has come
Track Name: Cast Assured
Arriving from madness
A journey far and wide
Mistaken for reality
Instead it was just a lie

We glide
Into the dark illusion sky
At night
Until our paths align
And we realise we're free

We rise from our boundaries
When we're cast assured, we break away
From this solitary state of mind
If you have a dream then don't push it down
Take it from me, the power lies within your dream

Insanity of humanity
Deception, war and pride
We drown all our emotions in the pit of dark despair
In fire we are burning toward the dusk of destiny!

Son it's fine
We'll be together when it's time
I cry
A promise made within my deep and weeping mind

We rise from our boundaries
When we're cast assured, we break away
From this solitary state of mind
If you have a dream then don't push it down
Take it from me, the power lies within your dream

We glide
Into the dark illusion sky
At night
Until our paths align
And we realise we're free
Son it's fine
We'll be together when it's time
I cry
A promise made within my deep and weeping mind

Together we'll be, once more
Again
We are moving on
To the end

We've fallen!
Into the dark oppressive reeking minds
I cry
Almost like we're just a speck of dust

We've risen to another state of mind

Rising to our calling
Rising and awakening
Rising to our calling
Rising and awakening

I don't wanna wake up from this scene
Making me feel like I belong to be free
I don't need to be cast out to see
What lies beneath is something that I cannot be
