Featuring the signature sound of Brand X's Percy Jones and John Goodsall, together with Mark Murdock (Cymbalic Encounters) and special guest Japanese keyboardist guru, 'Hiroyuki Namba.'

This song is about the mystery of 'The Gate Of Winter's Past' where upon entering the land of lost souls. By coincidence. It is the lost soul brother of 'Lost Of Winter's Solstice' which is available on Bandcamp.

lyrics

The Gate Of Winter’s Past

Souls on sunken ships of collective fate
Voices from the past have spoken to me
Through the wind and through the trees
Telling me leave to another realm

See the face in the distance reveal
Throughout the years your fate has been sealed

Soul lanterns float into the otherworld
A searchlight for all lost souls
I can feel them in my presence
There’s something coming over me

The gate of winter’s past
Will last for eternity
Free you soul before it’s too late
The gate of winter’s past
Will last for eternity
Free you soul to close your fate

There’s no way in and there’s no way out
No one can ascend into the sky
It’s been tried but they fall back to the ground

The gate of winter’s past
Will last for eternity
Free you soul before it’s too late
The gate of winter’s past
Will last for eternity
Free you soul to close your fate

And now it’s time to surrender
Close the door on this existence
Say goodbye to those you cherish
For now you must perish
Just step into the light
