Track Name: My / We
Before our lives move away
Into liquid crystal displays
We slip through between two sample rates
Completely dissolve out of everything
Shift from ourselves and run onto an open field
Where we can breathe again
Track Name: The Cities
There you go along the cities' boundaries, at the outside
Get around the centre of life
Oh I thought that I could catch you,
make you love my favourite sight
Get along with the centre of life

You never mind my invite, though it hits you like a meteorite
The invite for a ride even sparks another fight

I clear away the scenery I made up for you and I let go
It's all about another one’s
Variety, monotony
History, futurity

Not any of your rejections got the wind from behind
Mask your eyes for everyone else
And while I run after your heart my love slowly falls apart
Reduced to signs in a chart, now both they stray in the dark

There you go around the cities
Track Name: The Window
Look into the wild, in the wide, in the night
The eyes hold on to one spot
Clouds pushed by the wind
Move in between the glass and the scene
Sometimes somebody's world turns away from a window
So take a photograph and hang it up on the wall

Look at the stars in the vast of the sky
Nothing will last, not the emptiest while 

Spring, come, release the dimmed sun 
The next beat of the heart excites,
Though it's one of the last
Memories fade into a rough idea
Still bright enough for me to see you
As clear as you ever were

Look at the stars in the vast of the sky
Focus on few, on the ones speaking to you
Track Name: Same Sun
Always under the same sun
Along a lonely horizon
The light's not gone as long as we run on

Sun sun sounds

We move at the same pace as the globe
But the opposed way
Keep up, we always run
All day we stay under the same sun

It takes us where they’re all around
Sun sun sounds

Set on track
The same sun calling us

These are the tracks we’re set to
You set me and I set you
Along a lonely horizon
And rays of light lead us away
Track Name: Saturate The Darkness
I don't benefit from the darkness
But it benefits from me
It is hungrier than the light is
Makes sure I’m always going to feed

Who can saturate the darkness

Something foreign to the body
Swamped the colour out the eyes
How I want to be a bright-eyed ninja
Make a difference with a fight
Track Name: Come With Me
Don't know about the ending of a storm
In times the waves are higher than the wall

Come with me

We print our fear white on a sheet
Aboard a ship to a blank shore

After all we lower all that we increased
Cargo’s handed over, our estates are seized

The view is nor new, no, it’s only skewed
As blind as trust in a stranger's home
Track Name: But Oh!
I'm on my way to you
And my heart is full of colours
You sway in a globe of glass
And your garden is full of flowers

But oh! - what can I say to you
I'm down like everyone else, too
Don't let our good times go
And fade upon a long and lonesome road
Track Name: Quiet Sea
Like ruins in wild landscapes
My dreams adhere to dried up land
Sort the days on the hours of sunshine
Sort the days and put them away

Cast feathers / all at once / no feathers
For now unable to fly
Grow tired, quiet sea
Grow tired of keeping the waves in the lee
Track Name: Riverlights
Well, I have decided to take the other way
The world turns on as before
I stop comparing my face to faces, my hand to hands
Still I swim with the tide, but on my own floe of ice  
The river's speed won't be the measure of mine

The riverlights at the riversides
Like satellites' eyes so electric

I let you take over the time and places elapsed for me
Heartbeat's not lower but less in trouble with rest and wait

Where there is no illusion let me rest 
Let the raft ride on while I stay here in the river bend
Track Name: Parallels
Step outside, walk down the road
Feel the noise locked up in the quiet ones
Remember the parallels that run among everyone
Not for too long I join in a choir, for a verse
Then I reverse, step back into a sheltered place
Breathing my own breath
Though it's stale like the stuck fog around my eyes

A grounded ship bleeds to death
Find some sleep in its bow
When the tide is low I feel like I should run to meet the water
Though I long for I will never call at a port
And my reports ain’t true enough
All the words I hear pressed into an overall language
T hat I speak to you

All that I knew separates from you, separates from me, too
Empty and nude all angles turn into one blank view
