Hope forth erase this heaven  On this lonely world  Parts of me will never find you  I wonder where they are    Open wound    Walking on endless foundations  Mend our broken mind  Wonder of your transgressions   Regardless of the time    Spires of the dream alone, taking up our time  Fall into endless wretches, never lie    Open Wound The AntlerQueen follows you tonight The AntlerQueen follows you tonight The AntlerQueen answers to the call    Tranquil homes are never permitted, in this age of false Take the road into remission, leave this wretched hive Take us to endless regression, setting up the spark Scars of past never leaving, hold on The AntlerQueen follows you tonight The AntlerQueen follows you tonight The AntlerQueen answers to the call Open wound 
  When you fall  From the sky  When you fall  Down to earth  When you fall  Into the dark    When you fall  Resurrection

When all the stars have fallen  Into the silence of the sea  And when the moon is hiding  Behind silver linen clouds    The cockerel cries    In the fading twilight  There's a song amongst the trees  It sings of the forsaken  That have crossed the sacred line    Through the gates of death we go  Into the land of the setting sun  Forever yearning immortality  To rise from bondage and be free    In the mist at midnight  There's a whisper in the wind  It tells of the forgotten  That have passed to the other side Through the gates of death we go  Into the land of the setting sun  Forever yearning immortality  To rise from bondage and be free The Sunless Hymnal will leave these scars  For us to learn to hope, veil this burn  Into the star Into a new demise, brought here by you, Destruction is so far, Slow these burns 
Into the star  The Revelations of the Umbra 
The Divinations of the Moon The Sunless Hymnal will heal our wound We will fight again in our tombs Into the star The Revelations of the Umbra The Divinations of the Moon All will fall in place again, as we find the truth  When all the stars have fallen Through the gates of death we go 
Forever yearning immortality  Into the land of the setting sun  To rise from bondage and be free Sunless hymnal
3.
I am afloat upon  A vast and nameless ocean  I cast a pale reflection  On the moonlit surface    Far beneath  Echoes stir    I stare into the darkness  Of the beguiling waters    From the depths there rises up  A song that reaches for my heart  The fairest voice pulls me down  I hear the siren beckoning me    I am bereft of all  Sense and consciousness  My burning mind desires  To slip below the waves    Lures you in  With false grace    Waits like an open grave  The death's embrace I Hear The Siren I Hear The Siren I Hear The Siren I Hear The Siren Beckon me

Slavestate Magazine
"Idag låter Vokonis mer som renodlad progressiv rock än valfritt trött stonerband. Det är en remarkabel platta bandet har släppt nu."

Outlaws Of The Sun
"The main exciting part of the album is the overall journey the band take you upon and to witness the new evolution of VOKONIS to be major league players in the Doom/Stoner Metal arena."

Last Rites
"With Grasping Time Vokonis have adeptly pivoted from a run-of-the-mill stoner doom band into a much more complex beast full of psychedelic and traditional doom planted throughout."

Ave Noctum
"Vokonis have a grasp on not only how to write songs that will cause the listener to lose themselves in their jams, involuntary head nodding the minimum prerequisite, but also peacefully drift off into another dimension"
