Eloy : Ocean 1977

Eloy is a German progressive rock band, whose musical style includes symphonic and space rock, the latter theme being more prevalent on earlier albums. Despite their nationality and time period, the band is not generally considered krautrock because of their sound, which has much more in common with English progressive rock groups such as Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Yes.

Ocean was the sixth album released by the German progressive rock band Eloy. It was released in 1977 and is considered by many their finest album, a classic of the genre in Germany. It sold 200,000 copies, doing better than Genesis or Queen on the German charts.


Worlds atomize and Oceans eavporate in Eternity !
Man erects out of the darkness , laughs into
the glimmering light and disappears ...

When the mighty sons of the spheres beyond
distributed the elements of earth
they laid down the foundation-stone
of highest spiritual birth
which ever existed since thousands of years
but is lost now in the future and past
lightyears away from our daily tears
those unperceived moments which always last

Poseidon became lord of earthquake and seas
master of oceans and all their wealth
god of an island, there lived a family
with a daughter of beauty and health
ATLANTIS was the island's name
greatest treasury of all times
human eyes didn't ever see the same
silver and gold, fertile hills, woodlands and plains
it was situated in front of the strait
they call "The Columns of Herakles"

Kleito was the daughter's name
a princely virgin of clearness and love
so Poseidon fell in love with her
and built a shrine on the mountains above
surrounded by a golden wall
and inside he placed his holy law

Son of god and daughter of earth
they created ten sons, human creatures
who've been of supreme beings at birth
of pure essence and perfect features
what a divine possibility to overcome Evil
so listen what Man did !


LOGOS ( Greek λόγος - logos ) is an important term in philosophy , analytical psychology , rhetoric and religion .
Originally a word meaning "word" , "speech" , "account" , or "reason " , it became a technical term in philosophy , beginning with Heraclitus (ca. 535–475 BC) , who used the term for the principle of order and knowledge in the Universe.

The sophists used the term to mean discourse , and Aristotle applied the term to "reasoned discourse" in the field of rhetoric.
The Stoic philosophers identified the term with the divine animating principle pervading the Universe.


No Native soil, no ocean, no salty wave
No sky above
No living being, no movement, no colours, no elements
No eye to see anything- complete emptiness
Before all was nothing?

The moon, companion of the sun,
touching celestial globe, motionless starry sky
The planets don't know where to move
They are unaware of puissance and of hope
Intrinsic virtues awake!

All of a sudden appears a light, horizons open wide
Voices fill the air
And The Gods Made Love!
The layers tremble and raise in staggering
And words transform into flesh and blood

The act of uppermost magic has begun
Impulses working on and on
Movement here and there
Vibrations Move The Atmosphere!

Transcendental forces penetrate
The planet we call Earth
And all spheres of the universe
All the elements burst!

A warm powerful breeze inspires inanimate matter
And a creature, shaky reeling on two legs
Extends it's hands shivering against the sky
Primary Procreation Is Accomplished!

MAN arises out of dusty clouds
Eyes are staring all around
Ears are noticing unknown sounds
Legs are pounding on the ground

Now Man knows he's not alone
So his hands take up the stone
Anxiety to hold his own
Fighting for the creatures throne

Man forms tribes to enlarge his chance
To survive the primeval living-dance
The strongest ones fight for leadership
And by these fights they attain the grip
On the weaker ones who become suppressed
By their violence
So are we possessed by the same ideas
In a world
That's full of fears and tears and "progresses


Overbearing secular creature
My worshipped king
King of wisdom and pain

You are the one, the mighty one
Ruling so wise
You're the universal sin

Guardian of justice
Offering help
Favorite victim of your self-made gods

Empty shroud
Who runs to the indigents aid
Oh my perfect hero!
Ah my mighty friend!

You're the prince of principle
Wiping out disobedience with your might
Autocratic might!
You don't stand for backtalk
So you root it all out by your weapon's light
The Atomar light!

You are born into your violence
And you live against superior truth
You are born to live the ignorance
And you're proud to kill your spiritual youth

From the upper sea of the setting sun
you submit all mankind to toe the line
To toe your line
You commit your frightful arms
against the palaces and treasures of our mind
Our innocent mind

That's why your should remember
The duty that's required by your life
Or is it true that you did surrender
Your only possibility to survive?

In taper indented triangles
Sterilized drops of blood are wildly raving along
And their shadows - they are crossing my horizon!
Concrete becomes liquid, sweats along
And pours along through my legs - Alright!
Extensive feverish stuff.
Rough surface - murderous red!
Even in the air,
Which is still guiding quiet and understandable!
I feel the slippery, whispering,
Rainy dead end street,
Hanging deep above the vaporing sea!
The final signal for low truth approaches!
Fear did die?
Vanity - Insanity, warm, hot and true,
Who cut the enemy down? We are betrayed!

That's why you should remember
The duty that's required by your life
By our life
Or is it true that you did surrender
Our only possibility to survive? It's our life


And so the Gods decided:
Great is the fear for you,
When your eye takes the field against those
Who tried to raise against you.
Make your eye go down
And strike the mutineers with disaster.
The eye shouldn't rest in your forehead,
Now it has to go down as "Hat-Hor"...
... And the eye of "RE" mounts down
From his divine brow - down there on Earth
And strikes them with disaster...

Spirits darken the sky,
The divine guided missile is on it's way, and it's especially
Directed by:
"Emnasut" - first genius of the Sun-sphere
"Gomah" - first genius of the Venus-sphere
"Ebvap" - first genius of the Moon-sphere
"Aschmunadai" - first genius of the Earth-sphere

We do not know, but they do, and they remember
A liquid fire appears in the sky
The flash of life is radiating
The flash of death - We're surrendered
It's light shines - Shine on!

A mind power made the rocks sink
And by this power the mass of stones will surface again
Legends kept the secret of their wisdom
And soon it will all be revealed,
Soon it all will be revealed
1983 ,84 ,85 ,86 ,87 ,88

We are a particle in the ocean
Lost and safe like a tear,
We are born and lost in the ocean
Where is mercy with our fear?!

  1. Αν και οχι φαν του ειδους με τους ELOY το εχω το κολλημα.
    πολυ καλο αλμπουμ.

  2. Γειά σας φοβεροί και τρομεροί Urban Aspirines!!!!
    Κατ' αρχήν να πούμε πως οι Eloy είναι ένα καταπληκτικό συγκρότημα και έχουν διαμαντένιες στιγμές όπως αυτή εδώ στο "Oceans", που βγάζει την τρομερή ατμόσφαιρα. Πραγματικά νομίζεις πως οι Elοy κατάγονται από την Ατλαντίδα, ή τουλάχιστον έχουν περάσει τη μισή ζωή τους εκεί.....
    Κατά τα άλλα...... εδώ και πάαααρα πολύ καιρό σας παρακολουθούμε με θαυμασμό για τις απίστευτες αναρτήσεις σας, τη φαντασία σας και φυσικά όλη τη δουλειά που έχετε "ρίξει" σε αυτό το blog.
    Εμείς ξεκινήσαμε το δικό μας blog μέσα από την επιθυμία να μοιραστούμε τις μουσικές ιδιοτροπίες και γνώσεις μας, μέσα από καυστικά σχόλια και τα αρκετά σπάνια μουσικά άλμπουμ στις αναρτήσεις μας - προσπαθώντας να "διασκεδάσουμε" τις εντυπώσεις περί της σοβαρότητας των καιρών που διανύουμε. Έτσι γεννήθηκε το Prostitution Times, τίτλος προφανής για τη σημασία του, φυσικά δεν πουλάμε προστασία σε εκδιδόμενες (σεβαστό το μεροκάματο), αλλά φωνάζουμε πως είναι η εποχή μας "εκδιδόμενη" και ο κάθε ένας από εμάς, ας το συνειδητοποιήσουμε και ας το αναλογιστούμε με λίγο....χιούμορ.
    Ακολουθήστε αγαπητοί φίλοι τα posts μας - που αν και ολίγα για αρχή - θα ανταμείψουν όποιον μας επισκέπτεται.
    Σαν παλιότεροι που είστε, έχουμε ανάγκη τη συμβουλή και τη συνδρομή σας, οπότε τα σχόλια είναι καλοδεχούμενα.
    --θα τα πούμε σύντομα και με νέες αναρτήσεις!!----
