With the release of their EP, ‘Savage Fingers’, The Engine Above aim to give a thematic continuation to the ‘Pilot’ EP. It continues the story of the Pilot and introduces some other new characters and elements. It will be the second piece of a puzzle to a much greater picture of a nautical world. With the introduction of new story elements, the music has also reflected that expansion.

Track Name: Council Of The Whales
Now we’ve arrived
To somewhere
And somethings I just can’t describe

When we conversed
It shattered
All the visions preconceived

Face to face with their night
I could feel the hate
Now I know of their plight
The council of the whales

Filling my lungs
They said kindly
“You may now return with us”

All had begun
The vision
Cetacea spoke was realized

Breathe the air out
Pilots mute shout
Track Name: Depths To Shallows
We were just so clear in time
Difference was still undefined
We had formed this great design
Between firmaments so sublime

We said we must move on
We have the sky, let’s take the sun
Open up our eyes
What’s beyond
We’ll build a great machine
To live on

The ocean lies beneath our feet
Gather what you can, meet our need
The creature cries, but we don’t see
We’ve progressed so perfectly

…And follow
This dream beyond our solar sea
...To waste this world
The sacrifice we have foreseen

No more will we contemplate
The path we’ve set, we won’t deviate
Almost there, we’ve come so far
Savage fingers to touch the stars

Wide eyes
We guard the Sea
Wide eyes
We are the Sea
Wide eyes
Regard the Sea
Why die
We are deceived
Track Name: System Paradigm
Overriding system paradigm
Trying to integrate with this current time
The sense of being lost aside
A post chaotic calm provides

Light in between the signs
We knew
Fall down this rabbit hole
And we will fall much deeper
Trying to become ourselves

All the wishing we do
Is not in vain
Facing odds against us
Seems everyday
We’ll change our demons
Into gods
And recreate our path
To somewhere

Feeling…all that we need to
Being…all that we see
Say it…no need to agree upon it
Stay…a while longer
