Track Name: Thalassic
We found our way through a darkened sky. We found our way
through a fading night, with the sail upright. Watch us float away and drift towards a new day, downstream. Know you can't control the flow, the tides will not arise. But the water in our eyes makes it hard to carry on. We're drawing to our end. Now the current starts to fall. Breezes whisper through our minds, only oceans may decide. No witness will arrive. He's caught in floods.
Track Name: Ascent
In black or white, it doesn't make a difference to me. We learn to walk the same direction anyway. The times, they change so we can watch the sunrise and the moonlight. We're on our way out into the countryside in the sunlight. You can spot us in the sky, we soar, making patterns in your eyes as you chase us round the fire. You can spot us in the sky, our home. Making patterns in your eyes that will start the fire tonight. With the rainclouds overhead, under shelter, holding breaths. 'Till it comes down, wipes the smiles off our faces. In the open, words aloud. Sleeping giants make no sound. In the city we're just dots on the landscape. he moonlight. We're on our way out into the countryside in the sunlight. You can spot us in the sky, we soar, making patterns in your eyes as you chase us round the fire. You can spot us in the sky, our home. Looking down on morning light, that will start the fires tonight.
Track Name: Riddles In The Dirt
When you stand like the monarch that you thought you always were, on high ground, we laugh and mock the riddles in the dirt. Beneath the robes there's a smaller man just like the rest of us. With no crown all authority means nothing to us. You run, run from your own will, backwards and forwards in a motion you make. You shout from behind the brick walls. If there's something left in ruins we make, we dig it up to take away. In the sand, drawing circles 'till the water wipes them off. Off the land, wiping scars away painting over the marks. You stick out like a brighter shade just like a sore thumb. Gaze around for a double but you are the only one.
Track Name: Smoke-Scheme
You bare your eyes to the smoke screen as it wraps you up and keeps you far from home. Is this what you stand for? You swim away from the shoreline to an openness that always twists and turns. Is this what you fall for? 'Cos we believe we're always forgetting what we are. In the fog there's a figure, and it's outline starts to fade when we walk the other way. 'Cos we believe we're always forgetting what we are. Forgetting who we are.
