Track Name: silhouette
Seamlessly falling out of love
Track Name: old oaken pond
From the lawn we could not see the road behind the leaves

A humming drone sang us to sleep

We drifted, each alone

One day we charged across the street, swallowed by the woods

A trickling sound rose carefully

We've gone farther than we should



An empty field used to be home

Uncontrollable green once bloomed furiously

A living entity that never slept alone

Now lies barren



Old oaken pond



Now a heavy sky hangs upon the railway winding away from here

It's the same as it always was, but a creeping doubt came to me

Those days we charged across the street, we were swallowed by the tide

A trickling sound faded silently, now it's sleeping endlessly



An empty field used to be home

Uncontrollable green once bloomed furiously

A living entity that never slept alone

Now lies barren



Old oaken pond
Track Name: the note
The first falling snow paints the house in white

It's like that dream you once told me about

You pulled me in and whispered as if someone else was listening

It's been so long since you left



Love, I sold you out

I let you down

I led them right to you

Love, I gave you up

I let them in

I never found the note you left



You told me about the falling stars

I fell asleep in your arms

By the morning you were gone

The sirens woke me up



Love, I sold you out

I let you down

I led them right to you

Love, I gave you up

I let them in

I never found the note you left
Track Name: showers of light
Bright light falling upon the broken windowpane

Immersed in embers falling like a willow tree

Some nights lonesome you fall into sleep

Morning broken, illuminating empty dreams



Piercing eyes

Helplessness arises

Random lives

I can see you



Bright light sparkling across an empty dance floor

Encapsulated in amber glowing from the outside

The curtains leave you open to the flood

Horrible sunshine from which the blanket lets you hide



Piercing light

Helplessness arises

Random lives

I can see you



There is a dividing line between showers of light

And the lonely stage upon which you hide

This flickering screen, it never goes out

Transmitting your smile into the cold, cold night



Showers of light
Track Name: mirage
Darkened day floating away

Sullenly passing the layers above

Spears of green with arms outstretched

Losing color and strength



There's a narrow path in-between

A starving desert, once a sea

Expanding slowly but continuously

The fixation of opposing binaries



The glowing haze is on your side

Embodying all from the first kind advice

To the shapes you see streaming down

These glowing days never leave a sound



In silence these atoms clash

Unable to produce any form of light

Frantically repelling the tired arms

Upon which they also stand

From beneath the dried out leaves

A stone of sand builds itself

Into a diamond wall reflecting all

This is where we are



The glowing haze is on your side

Embodying all from the first kind advice

To the shapes you see streaming down

These glowing days never leave a sound
Track Name: in orbit
There's an end of the line

Pushing away out of sight

Scattering fragments of light

In the corner of my eye



Purposely fixed on the golden shore

Overdosing the optic nerve

And I can't feel my feet anymore

So I stare blindly at the yellow curve



Inevitably I fall to my knees

Alongside objects blow by

In clear, visible orbits

Fixed on what's right in front



Purposely fixed on the golden shore

Overdosing the optic nerve

And I can't feel my feet anymore

So I stare blindly at the yellow curve



The cold cement against my chest

Welcomes my determined calm breath

The levee broke and rays are pouring in

And I can feel it covering me



I can feel it covering me
Track Name: falling asleep
Help me up

Calm me down

Falling asleep one more time



Stir this up

Slow this down

Waking up one last time



Shut me up

Make this last

Blow me away one more time



Make me smile

Sing me a song

This is the last time



Until I move on
Track Name: to the coastline
You had a pin on the map and a ticket in your hand

Elephants and endless coasts waiting for you to land

We watched a movie late one night about a wrestler broken down

Then the ringing broke us off and seconds later, he was gone



And that's when you gave it all up



You had to travel all the same to the coastline but with train

Into the fog you held me still through passing cities humming



And we dove into the cold

You pushing me on

And we drove out to the coast

You holding me up



Selflessly you held me up

Selflessly you gave it all up

Selflessly you held me up

Selflessly you gave it all up
Track Name: floating in the deep
Your red-shifting name flickers all the same

I'm losing sleep, just floating in the deep

A layer of noise distorting your voice

The darkness beneath reaching for my feet



I can't see you



If it was a dream, I would drift along upstream

Wash up the shore, be someone your were waiting for

Make a small fire, losing track of time

Talk through the night, sleep under the moonlight



I can't see you
