about

'Mirror Maze' is the first full length album from the Hungarian prog metal all-star band At Night I Fly with members of Stonehenge, After Crying, Dreyelands, Wendigo, K3, Wall of Sleep.

'Mirror Maze' is an anthology with songs written by former members Zoltan Batky and Andras Adam Horvath and describe the same topic from many different angles. All songs are examples of people, lives and destinies where the individual finds himself in a maze of mirrors: different choices, unforeseen junctions, deception and temptation where it's easy to lose sight on the goal - to be ourselves.

The album features guest musicians: Zsolt Kővágó (Dreyelands, Honeybeast) on keyboards and a string quartet. The album is produced by the band’s guitarist, Andras Adam Horvath and was mixed and mastered in HL-Studio by Barnabás Hidasi who is well known from the albums of major Hungarian acts like Tankcsapda, Depresszió, Magma Rise and many more.

Track Name: Silent...
SILENT...
Lyrics by Z.Batky

Look at me, can't you see
I'm left here hopelessly
Tiny soul, weakened will
Locked inside a monster-hill

Talk to me in my dreams
While I wash all my sins
Take me back, let me be
Take me back where I can be me
Track Name: Gethsemane
GETHSEMANE
Lyrics by Z.Batky

I watch them sleep, it’s silence in the secret garden
I don’t know how can I still carry this whole burden
And soon it’s dawning

These voices in my head whisper of a new world coming
Whisper things about tomorrow I create by dying
Here comes the morning, the truth is calling

Hey hey just turn away
This cross can wait till another day
Hey hey just take the time
The human race is too blind to see your sign

In the night, I can hear Him calling
Waiting for me up above the stars
Does He know, does He ever wonder
How to be a human with the scars

I will feel the whip on my flesh
I will smell the blood all over
I will face the bitter darkness
I will wait for salvation to come
I will wait for salvation to come

Hey hey just turn away
This cross can wait till another day
Hey hey just take the time
The human race is too blind to see your...

Hey hey just turn away
This cross can wait till another day
Hey hey just take the time
The human race is too blind to see your sign

Too blind to see your sign
Track Name: The Pit
THE PIT
Lyrics by Z.Batky

Feels like frozen in the air
Holding onto an everlasting breath
Far away from everywhere
Locked inside there without knowing I'm already dead

Another one of those escapes
Try to hide from all that cold reality
I am frozen in the flames
Praying for just one more moment to clearly see

So now I feel I'm falling
Into the everlasting heat
And all the monsters at my back
Can't ever follow me
Into the Pit
Deep into the Pit
Down into the Pit

Bodies and minds in vertigo
Where will you go, where will you go from here
Soon the trance will fade away
Will you find your way?
Open your eyes and look around
Can you hear the sound, can you hear the sound
All monsters are here again
Welcome back to Pain

So now I feel I'm falling
Into the everlasting heat
And all the monsters at my back
Won't ever follow me
Into the Pit
Deep into the Pit
Down into the Pit
Into the Pit
Track Name: Afterlife
AFTERLIFE
Lyrics by Z.Batky

See the human remains
This cold wind can't harm them
Not this time and place
See the survivors face
Their eyes scream the question
Where is he now, no one can find a trace

Where do we go?
What's there to come?
Who can give hope?
What's after that line?

Where are you now?
Give us a sign!
Tell me, if there is an afterlife
Where do we go when the curtain falls down?
I need the truth, not those holy lies

Went to preachers and talked
Chanted some old words with no meanings at all
Tried to ask all the gods: I am still waiting
But they don't care, just wait for me to fall

Where are you now?
Give us a sign!
Tell me, if there is an afterlife
Where do we go when the curtain falls down?
I need the truth, not those holy lies
Track Name: Shattered Mirror Bay
SHATTERED MIRROR BAY
Lyrics by Z.Batky

A face in the mirror, the scent of the summer nights
Pictures reflecting those days, those silver lights
Closing my eyes to see another dimension lost
Tried to reach out but I know, I’m just a ghost

I can’t see them, they can’t see me

Tried to cross over, tried it so many nights
I’m sick of the pictures and all those silver lights

There’s no answer, I’m lost in nowhere

Take me, take me back to the shattered mirror bay
Take me for another day
Draw me summer sky, paint a summer night
Let me kiss my memories goodbye

Time is a prison, it’s hiding the reason to live

Take me, take me back to the shattered mirror bay
Take me for another day
Draw me summer sky, paint a summer night
Let me kiss my memories goodbye
Track Name: Uriel
URIEL
Lyrics by Z.Batky

In the desert of my thousand-year-old slumber
I'm only haunted by the memories of a life
Been a mighty angel, I have been a hunter
But now I'm dreaming like a shelterless child

When sometimes I open my eyes I see my garden
A wild jungle that is sheltering my pain
I am a prisoner and I am my only warden
Once I broke free but never, never again

I hold this flower in my hand
To feel it crumble into sand

Wanna go, wanna know, wanna dive back into the life
I wanna feel, wanna se what I'm missing all the time
So I'm on my way once again and I leave these scars far behind, and
All the sins, all the pain will be fading from my mind

Where am I? What am I?
Tell me there is a where and a why
Where am I? What am I?
Am I the only to live a lie?

I hold this flower in my hand
To feel it crumble into sand
Now I am no more than the dead
My life is all inside my head

I hold this flower in my hand
To feel it crumble into sand
Now I am no more than the dead
My life is all inside my head
Track Name: Towards The Black Light
TOWARDS THE BLACK LIGHT
Lyrics by Z.Batky

Calling out from loneliness, calling out from pain
Calling out for anyone I hope it's not in vain
Calling out from desperation, calling out from hope
Calling out until I just can't call out anymore

Something in the air tonight, there's something in the air
Something I can't see but I can feel it everywhere
I run towards this feeling and I run till I can move
I don't know what I'm searching for but still I need that groove

Something in my blood tonight, there's something in my blood
Still I try to hold on, but I hear the rumbling flood
I run towards a shelter while I feel it's all in vain
Where's the hand to cover me from all the crimson rain

I reach out but it's still far away
Ran too much, it's time for me to stay

I can feel its gentle touch and I can feel that sound
I can only feel a hunch that something lurks around
Still I cannot focus, and my mind is out of range
But I know it's calling me; I know its name is Change

Finally, I'm giving up my youth
I reach out to finally touch the truth

Pray for me pray for me now
I'm on the end of the line

Another night, another nightmare
Will I awake? Will I be me?

I can feel its gentle touch and I can feel that sound
I can only feel a hunch that something lurks around
Still I cannot focus, and my mind is out of range
But I know it's calling me; I know its name is Change

Finally, I'm giving up my youth
I reach out to finally touch the truth

Pray for me pray for me now
I'm on the end of the line
Pray for me pray for me now
I'm on the end of the line
Track Name: ...Prayer
...PRAYER
Lyrics by Z.Batky

Look at me, can't you see
I'm left here hopelessly
Tiny soul, weakened will
Locked inside a monster-hill

Talk to me in my dreams
While I wash all my sins
Take me back, let me be
Take me back where I can be me

Once I stood, soon I’ll fall
Was life really worth it all
One last prayer, one last sigh
One last chance to wake up with a smile 
Track Name: Wanted To Be
WANTED TO BE
Lyrics by A.A.Horvath

Fields of broken mirrors, tiles of untold tales
They’re calling me
To keep up here to stay

Walk through false reflections, searching for a trail
I drive in dark
But still avoid to flee

Control held by loved ones, dullness sweet and pure
It’s part of me
But clearing out makes free

Part of hope departed, a part seem to remain
But it all pretends
and simulates a frame

(of) All that I wanted to be
All for once I prayed
All the hopes I used to keep
to be somebody - but not someone who’s blamed

Splinters sharp but shining, liberating pain
They call again
But I refuse

('cause) All that I wanted to be
Stilly fade away
This time I just want to leave
Release myself
And make that line so straight

Fields of the unknown - clear and plain
Give me the chance now
To build again

Here I am to breathe again, the calling I obey
To make this field my new domain
The splinters gone and
I just need to stay

All that I wanted to be
All for once I prayed
All the hopes I used to keep
to be somebody
and now I know - it’s real

All that I wanted to be
All that I became
The fields of mirrors led me how
to be someone
So I just need to stay.

Been away
Need to stay
