about

Moonswing Oulu, Finland

Moonswing was formed in Oulu, Finland around 2012 as a solo project of Lari Haataja. The lineup was gathered after Lari had composed the album and wanted to start recording. The concept was extended from an album to a band and the name “Moonswing” came to being. In its current state Moonswing is a somewhat limitless band in terms of genre, but the term progressive rock flies around often. ... more

Track Name: King With a Crown of Tin
Once there was a man
the man of many dreams
His dreams were full of hope
His dreams were full of grief

The man was alone
majestic on his throne
He wore a crown of tin
and mumbled with a grin


"All the people should be strapped down to the floor
And all the memories I had are here nomore
All the things they do with their lives
They're all lunacy, they're things that I despise"


The mirror that he gazed
was the only thing he praised
He remembered what he said
and thought in his head


"All the people should be strapped down to the floor
And all the memories I had are here no more
All the things they do with their lives
They're all lunacy, they're things that I despise
You are the One that I despise!"
Track Name: Sand Inside The Frame
The time is chained
It's not the same
Sand has been put into a frame
It has taken the shape of god

I walk upon
the sands of time
I roam towards the mighty chime
The tower that people bow by

Give me some time
to seek and find
Or build me up from sand
Give me some time
to understand

If I get there
I'll never leave
I'll spend my days just to achieve
The secret waiting to be found

The time moves by
just like a tide
I am prepared to leave my pride
And salvage this wonder we made

Give me some time
to seek and find
Or build me up from sand
Give me some time
to understand

Now that I'm here
I see no king
Time's not our god, but deep within
A power we must all obey

The things they told
cannot be true
and if they were, I'd still resume
to smile at the face of this god

Give me some time
to seek and find
Or build me up from sand
Give me some time
to understand
Track Name: The Nightingale
To move
and go on

Those birds they fly so
Elegantly
But one stands out in
a way that I can't explain

Those birds they fly so
Elegantly
But one stands out in
a way that I can't explain

It seems like our time is a nightingale
flying across the land
One day I wish to capture it
and rule with an iron hand

"Time equals space"
said the slave of equations
The man who knew
he was bound to be doomed
"Time equals space"
said the slave of equations
Look for the patterns
from the lines in your hands
Track Name: Reunion
Back where I come from
there is an old saying
“The things you want most
are always unstaying”
Assimilating
has never been easy
It took me a while
A long, long while...

I walked for days
in this dreamlike extension
Felt like I lived
in another dimension
I saw the beauty that it had
inside
Wished it would not slide
Silently collide

My vision must be
deceiving me
It’s blurred by fantasies
As for what I see
it cannot be
The One whom I believe

Back where I come from
there is an old saying
“The things you want most
are always unstaying”
Assimilating
has never been easy
It took me a while
A long, long while...
Track Name: Balance
I think she dreamt it all last night
A firm wind of change, blew by, changed my sight

And now I feel
the wind that is rumbling
And now I feel
the way that it's shifting our time

She wanted us to move to France
The visions of the future turning to past

And now I feel
the wind that is rumbling
And now I feel
the way that it's shifting our time

I have made all her dreams come true
A change of scenery, was all that it took

And now I feel
the wind that is rumbling
And now I feel
the way that it's shifting our time
Track Name: Requiem
The way you touch my skin
it feels like somethings wrong
The gloomy looks you give,
notes linger on too long

There are no seasons for you
No alteration
I could never be in
your situation

This time I was brought in
makes life seem very short
Just like a butterfly
with the sun you'll sail to port

There are no seasons for you
No alteration
I could never be in
your situation

Requiem aeternam
Track Name: Five Stages
I: Isolation

It has been weeks
It has been months
The race of time has just begun
It has been years
It has been decades

It has been centuries
I cannot figure out
what I once said
"Time equals speed?
Time equals distance?"

Where did she go?
Where has she gone?
What can I do?
The race of time has just begun

Has it been weeks?
Has it been months?
Time matters only for a while
Has it been years?
Has it been decades?

Has it been centuries?
Or have I only drifted
in my dreams?
Will she ever,
come back to me?

II: Anger

III: Bargaining

I wonder will life
ever be the same
I still think about her
every day

Trapped in confusion
Uncertanty
If you're there
give her back to me

IV: Depression
Track Name: The Derail
The color of the ocean
like a foggy memory
A painting I'd paint
if the colors didn't shake

The shades are flickering
like pictures in a book ablaze
And I can't recall
what took me so long
Track Name: Slave of Equations
"The end of times is near"
a stranger told the
man who lost his crown

He glanced at his gold watch
Leaving the barrow
with a silent frown

I gaze up to the sky
and see the smile of
the almighty time

I answer with the grin
I still wear within

The people settle down
We hold each others hands
and close our eyes

As one we all countdown
The moment when
foes will become allies

No fear or anger thrives
Inside we all
have embraced our fall

I answer with the grin
I no more wear within
