about

Svengali Dubai, UAE

We believe music is more than just a collection of sounds... and a band is more than the people on stage.

To us, music is a medium we use to tell our stories. The people who join us along the way turn into our family, and this that is our driving force.

Over thirteen tracks, "Theory Of Mind" digs deeper than ever before, both lyrically and musically.

Welcome to the Svengali Family.

Track Name: Deny
You live in darkness
In blindness
You're lurking on the edge
The lies you tell will haunt you

It's fight or flight
This is the final call
The day has come
And I will watch you fall

You've become what you despise
Witness your life through sunken eyes

Deny the lies in your mind
Lost inside your own divide

Your crown is broken
You're spoilt in the light of pretence
It's slowly seeping through the cracks
Of your story that's lacking the glory
You show no remorse or a slither of regret

You've become what you despise
Witness your life through sunken eyes

Deny the lies in your mind
Lost inside your own divide
Track Name: Floodgates
Everyday I die
And everyday resurrected
The ones closest to me
Are the ones affected

Open the floodgates
Open the doors
Lies of stranger
Building walls

Byproducts of a lifestyle addiction
Black holes where the self sinks in
Let go
Dark, silent and far
Chapters with battles and infected scars

Save me from myself

Being I for I each time I die
To come back stronger with the flames sky high

A byproduct of miscalculation
Collaborate and sync vibrations
Let go to rise, mercury's lies
Left to define the Theory of Mind

Being I for I each time I die
To come back stronger with the flames sky high

Deliver us
Deliverance
Accept the victories and innocence

Open the floodgates
Open the doors
Track Name: Blindfolds
We start again
The fire burns
Won't ever end

Destroy the forces oppression
There will be redemption
For what you've been given
As you all burn red

Blindfolds are lifted to a scene of hate
Despised by everything that you create
Motivated by the darkest days

Now faceless you lay
In your self-made graves

Forsaken I look to the sky
In darkness for light
To give up the fight
Losing the sight
Of all that is real

Battered and bruised
Crawling through
The glass of your reflections

The glimmer of hope
In the eyes of a dreamer
Is now nothing more but the rage of a defeatist
Trapped in his darkness

The light is distant
But hope is alive
Blindfolds are lifted
But you close your eyes

Forsaken I look to the sky
In darkness for light
To give up the fight
Losing the sight
Of all that is real

Won't stand by to watch you die

Forsaken I look to the sky
In darkness for light
To give up the fight
Losing the sight
Of all that is real
Track Name: Skinless
They say we've gone to far
To find redemption
The skin's come off this time
With good intentions

Where we're going we don't need no air
Don't blink tonight and don't you stare

Glow into everything else
And become what you are

I've come to see that now
Skinless and locked out
Inhale reality
Exhale perception

Peel back the scars and inherit it all
Threads of souls as we transpose

Time defined and earth-bound
To travel through the planes of sound

Unearth the plagues seeded within
Float and find that there's no sin

I've come to see that now
Skinless and locked out
Inhale reality
Exhale perception

Time defined and earth-bound
To travel through the planes of sound
Unearth the plagues seeded within

Time defined and earth-bound
To travel through the planes of sound
Float and find that there's no sin
Track Name: Sink or Swim
Don't give up just yet, old friend
The time is yet to come for them
Don't give up just yet, old friend
It'll be us that smile in the end

This is our own truth
Getting back to what we knew
Embrace all that is pure
And swim to the shore

I try to get through
To show you truth
To get back to what we once knew
From soaked and wounded
While dreams are burning
Push forward and find us with you

This is our own truth
Getting back to what we knew
Embrace all that is pure
And swim to the shore

Rest assured together we're unstoppable
Shaping life from a new view
After all we stand together
And scream all for one and one for all

White wash turned red
With salvation far ahead
Another deep breath
And a fight to the end


Sink or swim
Track Name: Thirteen Suns
Sun's blocked out
Tensions are sky high now
We crawl
Where do we go from here?
We are lost and found

Passion of four melts
Kings take off all their crowns
The sound of abstract
The perfect harmony
Thirteen suns burnt out
Kill the trend that follows
Castles and mountains
Fall to sand in their minds

Castles out of sand

Each grain worth the Moon and the Sun
Falling to the beat of the drum

When all is said and done
When everyone else is gone
When all is said and done
Falling to the beat of the drum

Sun's blocked out
Tensions are sky high now
We crawl
Where do we go from here?
We are lost and found
Track Name: Inertia (Part 1)
The shadow's taken hold of me again
This cannot be the end
Your light has dimmed to none
And I need you to Shine

Shine on
Light the way back home
Shine on
Lost the road, can't carry on

Outshine my darkest night
Against the currents I try
The oceans run bone dry
Now I search for your light
For me to see the path

You've strayed
Betrayed
Now ask me to be saved
This light will shine
But not for you

You've stayed derailed
Now ask to be saved
Why fight the past
When the light's on a different path

Shine
But the light is gone
It's time
To control the only one
Look inside
Illuminated within
Forgive
And go back to where we've been

Shine on
Light the way back home
Shine on
Lost the road, can't carry on
Track Name: Reflections
Reflections of a life I lost
These walls are not my own
Fears crawl from the past
The truth behind the mask

To see the world through these eyes
And hear them tell all their lies

I know I speak the truth
No one believes but you
Trapped in this everlasting nostalgia

What was will never be
The past is now just a dream
The stars, where I have been
Back here a different me

What was will never be
This is not my reality
The stars have died and the sun betrayed

Through death comes new life
The moon now only shines
To light the path ahead
The past is behind us

What was will never be
The past is now just a dream
The stars, where I have been
Back here a different me
Track Name: Pray for Sanity
The clock is ticking
It's come down to this
To kill the voices
Inside my head

Pray for sanity and pray for change
I got no one else but me to blame

The wings came off
I'm flying with
The rain to cleanse
Their every breath

All the voices in my head
As I fall, I haven't concluded
Where the weight of the world has gone

Words fail me
But I persevere
Find the meaning
In all that is here
A thousand sounds
Coming through to me
Now I hear
Difference in the fear

Pray for sanity

To feel the rust from the nail seep in

All the voices in my head
As I fall, I haven't concluded
Where the weight of the world has gone
Track Name: Laced in Sin
You look for answers in all the wrong place
Interpret the silence and misplace the hatred

See for your self
The station is flooded
The flame's extinguished
The others are running

Forget the screams
Tested and tried
Hidden and lucid
Dreams runs wild
Raindrops and doubt
The air is razor thin
Illusion of fate
Laced in sin

We must go back

Chasing the echoes and bellowing smoke
Easy to let go but we're meant to choke

Nothing's forever but we'll never be gone
Stranded inside this make shift home
If we can't live together
we're dying alone

Forget the screams
Tested and tried
Hidden and lucid
Dreams runs wild
Raindrops and doubt
The air is razor thin
Illusion of fate
Laced in sin

We have to go back
Track Name: Resonate
The world comes to a stop
Nothing else matters
Shape-shift to fearless
As we reach for our saturn

You and I will live our lives
Into the unknown we all will dive

We are the fearless ones

The misfits, the rebels
The one's who care
Who set their mind free
The one's who dare

In this together
I've said it before
For worse or for better
Stop for nothing at all

We are the fearless ones

If the words resonate
If you want to be heard
Put your hands up and scream
We're taking over the world

Transfixed and overwhelmed
As the words come back felt

Inked till I rot
This family will live on

We are the fearless ones

If the words resonate
If you want to be heard
Put your hands up and scream
We're taking over the world
