Track Name: fortress
WE’RE RIDING ON THE RAILS
DON’T KNOW WHERE WE’RE GOING NOW
THE PAST IT IS BEHIND US
THE FUTURE IS THE OCEAN WIDE

IT’S DEEP AS CLAY
IT’S WIDE AS BLOOD THROUGH MICROSCOPES
IT’S FAR AS FATE
IT’S CLOSE AS GALAXIES BEYOND

I’LL LOOK FOR YOU IN FORESTS
I’LL LOOK FOR YOU IN CITYSCAPES
LET’S BUILD OURSELVES A FORTRESS
MADE OUT OF LINES AND AWKWARD SHAPES

IT’S DEEP AS CLAY
IT’S WIDE AS BLOOD THROUGH MICROSCOPES
IT’S FAR AS FATE
IT’S CLOSE AS GALAXIES BEYOND

I’LL FIND YOU IN THE FORESTS
I’LL FIND YOU IN THE OCEAN WAVES
LET’S BUILD OURSELVES A FORTRESS
MADE OUT OF STONES WE FIND IN CAVES

IT’S DEEP AS CLAY
IT’S WIDE AS BLOOD THROUGH MICROSCOPES
IT’S FAR AS FATE
IT’S CLOSE AS GALAXIES BEYOND

IT’S DEEP AS CLAY
IT’S WIDE AS BLOOD THROUGH MICROSCOPES
IT’S FAR AS FATE
IT’S CLOSE AS GALAXIES BEYOND
Track Name: balance
WINTER TOOK IT'S TOLL
SPRING TIME WAITING FOR THE
SUMMER IT'S TOO HOT WE
FALL BACK DOWN

BALANCE AS TRICKY AS A
TAP DANCE WE STUMBLE LIKE
PUPPETS ATTACHED TO TANGLED STRINGS
OH NO

TIMING IS HAPPENSTANCE
RHYTHM IS ACCIDENT
DANCING A CHANCE EVENT
THAT LEAVES US BREATHLESS

DON'T YOU LEAVE A TRACE - IT'S DANGEROUS
YES I LOVE YOU NONETHELESS
PLEASE BELIEVE ME NOW
WAITING FOR A CONVICT TO CONFESS
PUT ON YOUR COCKTAIL DRESS
JUST LAY BACK NOW

DANCING LIKE NO ONE'S EVEN WATCHING
JUST LOSE YOURSELF INSIDE ME
IF ONLY FOR A SECOND NOW

BREAKING DOWN THE WALLS
FLOODING ALL THE TOWNS BELOW US
I DON'T EVEN CARE NO MORE

DON'T YOU LEAVE A TRACE - IT'S DANGEROUS
YES I LOVE YOU NONETHELESS
PLEASE BELIEVE ME NOW
WAITING FOR A CONVICT TO CONFESS
PUT ON YOUR COCKTAIL DRESS
JUST LAY BACK NOW

BALANCE AS TRICKY AS A
TAP DANCE WE STUMBLE LIKE
PUPPETS ATTACHED TO TANGLED STRINGS
OH NO

DON'T YOU LEAVE A TRACE - IT'S DANGEROUS
YES I LOVE YOU NONETHELESS
PLEASE BELIEVE ME NOW
WAITING FOR A CONVICT TO CONFESS
PUT ON YOUR COCKTAIL DRESS
JUST LAY BACK NOW

DON'T YOU LEAVE A TRACE - IT'S DANGEROUS
YES I LOVE YOU NONETHELESS
PLEASE BELIEVE ME NOW
WAITING FOR A CONVICT TO CONFESS
JUST TAKE OFF YOUR COCKTAIL DRESS
JUST LAY BACK NOW
Track Name: in the dark
NOW YOU KNOW EVERYTHING
DID I SCARE YOU OFF? DID I SHOW TOO MUCH?
THE FUTURE IS UNRAVELING
I’M LOSING MY SENSE OF TOUCH

SO I REACH OUT IN THE DARK
I HOPE THAT YOU’LL BE THERE TO SHINE SOME LIGHT

NOW I KNOW EVERYTHING
DIDN’T SCARE ME OFF, DIDN’T SHOW TOO MUCH
THE PAST IT IS UNRAVELING
I’M LOSING MY SENSE OF TOUCH

SO I REACH OUT IN THE DARK
I HOPE THAT YOU ARE THERE
LET’S REACH OUT IN THE DARK
I KNOW THAT YOU’LL BE THERE TO SHINE SOME LIGHT

I’M ALWAYS NEXT TO YOU
YOU’RE ALWAYS NEXT TO ME

NOW WE KNOW NOTHING
ABOUT WHAT LIES AHEAD, WHAT’S YET TO COME
THE FUTURE IS UNCERTAIN
SO LET’S BURN A BRIDGE
LET’S COME UNDONE

SO I REACH OUT IN THE DARK
I HOPE THAT YOU ARE THERE
LET’S REACH OUT IN THE DARK
I KNOW THAT YOU’LL BE THERE TO SHINE SOME LIGHT

I’M ALWAYS NEXT TO YOU
YOU’RE ALWAYS NEXT TO ME
Track Name: the next world
OPEN MY EYES ALL I SEE
ARE YOUR DARK BROWN EYES
LOOKING AT ME
CLOSE MY EYES NOTHING THERE
ALL I SEE IS YOUR LONG STRAIGHT HAIR

I STAY QUIET, SO TO SPEAK
BUILD THESE WALLS NICE AND STEEP
BUT YOU BREAK THEM DOWN LIKE AN EARTHQUAKE
WHEN YOU COME CLOSE MY WHOLE WORLD SHAKES

I CAN’T SEE CLEAR ANYMORE
ALL THESE THINGS WE’VE TRIED BEFORE
ONCE IN A LIFE TIME
NIGHT’S SO DARK, HEADLIGHTS ARE BRIGHT
EVERYTHING MUST COME TO LIGHT
THROW ME A LIFELINE


WILL I SEE YOU IN THE NEXT WORLD?

I’LL SEE YOU IN THE NEXT WORLD


IT’S TIME LIKE THIS I FORGET TO BREATHE
MY BODY WRITES BUT MY MIND MISREADS
YOU FLOOD ME LIKE A TIDAL WAVE
I GASP FOR AIR LIKE A SOUL TO SAVE

I CAN’T SEE CLEAR ANYMORE
ALL THESE THINGS WE’VE TRIED BEFORE
ONCE IN A LIFE TIME
NIGHT’S SO DARK, HEADLIGHTS ARE BRIGHT
EVERYTHING WILL COME TO LIGHT
THROW ME A LIFELINE

WILL I SEE YOU IN THE NEXT WORLD?

I’LL SEE YOU IN THE NEXT WORLD
Track Name: artificial heart
WE WERE BORN IN THE SUMMERTIME LIGHT
BEFORE THE COLORS EXPLODED
IN THE SPACE JUST BEHIND YOUR EYES
WHERE THE SILENCE REFLECTS JUST LIKE THE…
THE SOUND WHERE THE ROCKS GROW WILD
ALL AROUND US
OR IT MIGHT JUST BE THE…
THE WAY YOU LOOK INTO MY EYES
BUT I’M DISTRACTED
YEAH THE LEAVES ARE FALLING

ALL THESE COLORS IN MY HEAD
BURNING YELLOWS, FIERY REDS
WHISPER THINGS UNSAID
ON THIS FEATHER BED
JUST LAY ON THIS FEATHER BED
LET’S EXPLODE WITHOUT A SOUND
PUSH AND PULL, BREATHE AND DROWN
GET LOST AND NEVER FOUND
I’LL WIND YOU UP, YOU WIND ME DOWN
LET’S COME UNWOUND

THERE’S A FIRE BETWEEN THE LINENS TONIGHT
BUT THE FACT IS: IT’S SNOWING INSIDE
IT COVERS US IN A PALE WHITE LIGHT
THAT MELTS AWAY, GOODBYE GOODBYE
NOW IT’S TIME TO COME APART
AND YOU KNOW IT’S OVERDUE
SO TAKE A HAMMER TO THIS ARTIFICIAL HEART
THROW THE PIECES FAR FROM VIEW

ALL THESE COLORS IN MY HEAD
BURNING YELLOWS, FIERY REDS
WHISPER THINGS UNSAID
ON THIS FEATHER BED
JUST LAY ON THIS FEATHER BED
LET’S EXPLODE WITHOUT A SOUND
PUSH AND PULL, BREATHE AND DROWN
GET LOST AND NEVER FOUND
I’LL WIND YOU UP, YOU WIND ME DOWN
LET’S COME UNWOUND

NOW YOU’RE A STILL LIFE WORK OF ART
JUST BREATHE DEEP, LET DREAMS UNDO
YOU TOOK A HAMMER TO MY ARTIFICIAL HEART
MY WALLS FELL DOWN
YOU’VE BROKEN THROUGH
