The Moon 03:05
The Moon The darkest road we've ever seen Hunting ghosts that won't set us free Getting tired of all the noise I've found a way to run away from it all Chasing the Moon Until this desire wears me down Chasing the Moon Like it can be caught Chasing the Moon to buy a little more time Chasing the Moon To calm down the restless minds Chasing the Moon With my little friend by my side, Chasing the Moon Until this desire wears me down Chasing the Moon Like it can be caught The Moon

From Scratch 03:23
From Scratch Proof for the stranger A burden for the weak Chemicals on the paper Reflecting more than can be seen I was reinventing myself from scratch I needed to find a different way See the end, step on the edge Now I'm disciplining myself A weep for a change Muted screams in an airless space Strange to me Strange to you I was reinventing myself from scratch I needed to find a different way See the end, step on the edge Now I'm disciplining… I was reinventing myself from scratch I needed to find a different way See the end, step on the edge Now I'm disciplining myself

Into the Wind Gave this body to the current Whirling colors, melting skies To get over a hectic season changing it all Drifting away, floating Like a dead pirate in the sea Gave this body to the current To accept that time is catching up with me Turn the wheel, turn around Sail into the wind this time, wave goodbye Gave this body to the current Whirling colors melting skies To get over a hectic season changing it all Turn the wheel, turn around Sail into the wind this time Wave goodbye

X 03:45
X An outline of a man An imaginary friend A shadow in my bed Hands slide down my skin An embrace that always wins And I’m swimming in this blue haze I should be running away from you An outline of a man An imaginary friend A shadow in my bed I should be running away from you Oh, but I am such a fool I’m just waiting I should be running away from you

Hold On 03:35
Hold On Hold on I see that this can't be Hold on All this beauty's gonna ruin me Slow down because soon you're gonna leave Slow down You give yourself away so easily Before I become someone I don't want to be Before this fake bravery turns into something worse than it already is Oh my, I don't regret a thing Oh my, I can't believe that this is what it is Slow down It feels like you're slowly taking all that's left of me I'll break down You give yourself away so easily All this honesty will soon take you down There's a wall of worries far beyond your sight Hold on Can you see why this can't be Hold on All this beauty's gonna ruin me Slow down because soon you're gonna leave Slow down You give yourself away so easily

Omega 04:07
Omega The sound of silence breaking down Didn't kill the darkness All this violence, all resentment Won't rearrange space and time I will keep my distance From harmful still Keep close the loudest ones They've been giving peace to me I need to feel, I need to feel To feel real Will you fade beyond the dusk Can you lose the mask It was shaped to bring the pain To desolate our minds I will keep my distance From harmful still Keep close the loudest ones They've been giving peace to me I need to feel I need to feel real To feel real
7.
Little Daggers Silence grows but pain is worse Between these walls I've found a spot where I can stop trying Breathing in empty space and all the fears Feeling better while lying on the floor, alone Than walking on my own Little daggers come along Hitting slowly but all at once Cutting deep into my guts No running away this time Waking up with broken bones I need some time before They come back for more Little daggers come along Hitting slowly but all at once Cutting deep into my guts No running away this time

Afterglow 02:58
Afterglow What a night, what a night Ghosts made out of city lights Glistening silver dots In a room without a view This clock is cracking In a room without a view This clock is cracking It'll all be over soon Once the afterglow spreads under my skin And I forget about the whys and hows Once the afterglow sets the scene For something better than this

Pioneers 03:26
Pioneers To see what’s obvious To see the truth as light in the dark Has a price I cannot go back To the endless abyss under grey and heavy skies While water stones were hitting a metal box on the road to the first goodbye Say goodbye Say goodnight All that I wanted, all that I needed still floats around So how to go back when everything that was said still feels so right Say goodbye, say goodnight To the pioneers in nothing To the conquerors of the known To the lovers of the silence Exceptional in many things And nothing at all Say goodbye, say goodnight

about

Two years after her debut album “Travelling”, Irena returns as a transformed, venturing musician with a significant change in sound.
“Haze" reflects a feeling of drifting in the unknown and the attempts to escape the sense of helplessness it can create. It offers stories about wandering in the dark and seeing the light by accepting inevitable changes. Every song represents a significant moment or a glimpse of a haunting memory that channeled stories about emotional uncertainty and vulnerability.
The extremely intimate and emotional second album is engulfed in wistful and dark shadows pierced by Irena’s stirring vocals and executed with remarkable poise.
The album’s production and recording was helmed by Mark Mrakovcic, marking his return after producing Irena’s first album.
