Good Man Richard following the stream from rocky mountains riding through hell and hell is riding over me poor man a saddle on my horse, my gun and shovel digging up some gold or dig my own grave poor man shadows are dancing in the fire stars and all the gods are looking down on me poor man old dreams die young in the new land six feet down without a tombstone in these lands my dreams are haunting me my dreams are haunting me following the stream into the canyon riding through hell and hell is riding over me poor man walking on the trail of men before me like Sutter i will mine my very own vein poor man shadows are dancing in the fire stars and all the gods are looking down on me poor man old dreams die young in the new land six feet down without a tombstone in these lands my dreams are haunting me my dreams are haunting me

Ozymandias 04:27
Ozymandias carvings on the wall foretold the future hear the cracking of the wheel history forgot the one in mantle feel the cracking of the wheel a lifeless leg of stone and sorrow see the cracking of the wheel king of kings will rise again, despair fear the cracking of the wheel living in the wild, in barren wasteland living in the wild too long waiting for the world to keep on turning waiting for the world too long saving his strength to change the written saving his strength too long chanting in the dark to heal his own wounds chanting in the dark too long the staff rose once again guiding life to the end the druid is awake again wheel turns without end earth begins to shake, the ground trembles walking on the earth once more waves grow strong and swallow mountains walking on the sea once more air becomes thick and aether withers walking in the air once more elements are bowing to his spellcraft walking in the void once more the staff rose once again guiding life to the end the druid is awake again wheel turns without end

Marie Celeste it arrived in the midst of the day high and mighty over the sea villagers were running away but i had to go and see row row row the bow was heading my way for i stood alone on the shore i shove my fear away and i moved against the hull row row row evil lurks during the day foolish men hook on a pray and they lose their soul - and i lost my soul and they lose their soul - and i lost my soul mercy for the ones who fail dead men tell no tale and they lose their soul row row row no crew setting the sail no captain on the deck the hold was full of ale and i felt the chills on my neck row row row land was nowhere around i reached the nest of the crow before i made another sound my soul was bound with the row row row row

Old Debt 03:40
Old Debt wind is growing cold and this i feel it in my bones something wicked's coming after me footsteps from afar and this i hear it in my sleep something wicked's coming after me time is standing still as i reflect on empty eyes the man in black is coming after me shadows standing still as he demands my soul in hand the man in black is coming after me gains that are ill-gotten were never meant to last this long the man in black is coming to collect what in blood is written was never meant to lose its hold something wicked's coming to collect

about

Welcome to the Caravan, stranger! Come, take a seat by the fire, warm yourself up and listen to this story…
…We’ re gonna take you back to 2019’s autumn, back when Akis Kosmidis was sitting by a fire - much like this one - fed by cheap whiskey. While he was singing and playing his guitar, he felt through the smoke the presence of long lost souls, dancing and feasting. One of them whispered in Valantis Dafkos’ ear secret words of all those things they lived through and that no one has ever known.
And that is when they knew what they had to do.
At the break of dawn, having almost lost their sanity, they set out for the nearest settlement. It was there that they heard rumors about a local alchemist, Panos Makoulis, who collects melodies and gives them shape and form. They met with him and he decided to travel with them so they could gather the missing elements needed to recount the stories of the dead. The carriage’s arrival was foretold by the oracle Eleni Paraskevopoulou who, after following the signs, decided to grace the alchemist with her melodic voice. Thanos Giamarelos’ entrancing violin and Stefanos Stroggylis’ captivating harmonica were the two missing key elements. But something was missing… the beat that would set the pace for the dance of the dead. The tarot cards revealed Paris Gatsios, the last element completing the collection. Everything fell into place…
Our carriages are full of stories and otherworldly places shrouded in mystery, haunted by dark creatures, awoken by melodies and invoked to sing!
And so it was that the lone carriage turned into a Caravan… do you dare to join us?
