The quiet siren like beginning keeps you enthralled in the dark hole that is the song, the track makes you feel everything deep in your soul, it’s something you truly feel.

As the album is coming to an end, it’s closing out with “Shadwan”, another track that makes you feel like you’ve unintentionally woken up in space.

It’s a quiet song with a powerful voiceless message, “Shadwan” was the perfect was to end this album.
