Track Name: Voler Le Carbone De Nos Corps
We could wait a little longer for the brightness to return
The wilderness will fill us with whatever’s left
But I’d rather turn and twist away what’s left in this city until the lights fade
I’d rather turn and twist away what’s left in this body until my breath fades

I feel so much lighter now
You don’t know how, you don’t know

Your tracks in the snow (We know who you are, we know where you go)
Lead me to a warm home (We know who you are, we know where you go)
Your tracks in the snow (We know who you are, we know where you go)
Lead me to a warm home (We know who you are, we know where you)

I feel so much lighter now
You don’t know how, you don’t know
Your legs are tied together
I’ll watch you sink, I’ll watch you drown

Barely standing, bare and stranded
Track Name: And It Comes In Waves
Don't stray too far from me
You'll be swallowed by the sea

Is it any wonder how we got here?
Any at all?
Tell yourself it's laid in front of you
In a tree-lined hall

Set it on fire
Make your way towards water

Don't stray too far from me
You'll be swallowed by the sea
Are you as terrified as me
By the immensity of where we are?

Is it any wonder how you follow your path buried in ash?
Is it any wonder how easy it would be to be swallowed by the sea?
Track Name: Singularity
Everything will collapse
Both falling into place and ending
Chasing the sun
Becoming one the same

We are constantly looking behind us
How do you look ahead when everything is said?

It's a sinking feeling
Heavy on the heart
So make room for the ever-fading spark

Where do we come from if we never start at one?
When everything is said and done
Said and done

Everything is new
Let it take you
Enticing as it seems we must forget everything
There is a weight, light but great (There is a light)
There is wilderness beyond this (There is a light)
Track Name: Still Air
Hold, hold it closer
I don't want to lose sight of this
An idea from movies and books that I've read
Never thought to expel it from my head
It’s so much brighter here

The more your mind weighs
The less it weighs you down
Let go your rope and listen to the sound
Of silence, somberly
Move you ahead
It’s so quiet here
Track Name: Ghosts
Consider this
Nothing good ever comes with time
And I can vouch for that
So grab your things
I hope your clothes, your clothes are packed
Because it's quiet (We need to leave)
Because it's quiet (Are you listening)
Because it's quiet

The house is burning, the girders are falling
You were trapped here before
The house is burning, the girders are falling
You were trapped here long before

That's not a fire
It's the sun

Listen just this once
Your head is well
Filled with poison until your eyes swell
Make it stop

There's a slew of remedies around you
Take your pick
You'll go for what you already have
You already have
You already have
Track Name: Table Manners
I will build a crown of wires
For only you to wear for me
I'll keep the sharp edges in my hand
Staining red the sand

I tend to find my lovers in a trance
Imagine how your synapse would dance pushing and pulling away

An electric calm
Blood in the palm
Your crown suits you
An electric calm
