My / We 02:14
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
The Cities 04:09
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
The Window 03:44
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
Sun Sounds I 01:20
Same Sun 03:56
Always under the same sun Stay-run-run-stop-stay-run 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
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
Come With Me 04:50
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
But Oh! 04:30
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
Quiet Sea 02:17
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
Riverlights 03:25
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
Parallels 03:40
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
