Track Name: Brother Sun
All set for the introduction
This is life, here's your portion
I blacked out
Now I'm under the sea
Watch the last breath of air leaving me
(That's right)
Let's start the reconstruction
Set these plans into motion
I'll tear down, and you'll rebuild
Hold on tight cause the world spins


Traveling by night
And sleeping during the day
Then the car broke down
Now we're nowhere
You never let me lie
And you never
Ask me why I hide
All this hope inside
Just let it shine

Brother sun chases you
To catch his sister moon
Son of wolf, let's just embrace
What is
What was
And you

And we're riding on a wave
Sold the anchor, and burned up the sail
Chewing on new thoughts, but the flavour is wrong
Breathing out the words
Let the sentences be partly formed
When you clap your hands
it's gone

Brother sun chases you
To catch his sister moon
Son of wolf, let's just embrace
What is
What was
And you

Rewind back to the introduction
This was life
This was my portion
They tore it down
Let's rebuild
Hold on tight
Cause this world spins
Track Name: Cure
Sing young man
Sing of the days that will come
Your eyes see hope, so confident and calm
No clouds in sight
To obscure the sun
Old and new, just like conjoined twins
we'll exist

All of our conversations end
We can can agree on not agreeing on a thing
You say silence
I say sing
And all of our conversations end
Search through the lost and found
Until we find cure

Sing old man
Sing of the days that have passed
Cloud filled skies
Milky white gaze
Now clouds will shields
Us from the burning rays
Old and new
Just like two conjoined twins
We'll exist

All of our conversations end
We can can agree on not agreeing on a thing
You say silence
I say sing
And all of our conversations end
Search through the lost and found
Until we find cure
Track Name: Sadie
Sadie

Let's drive back to the lake,
with beat up hearts and shaky nerves
We'll sink to the bottom and find the pearls that we hid
I hang hang on to the memories we created instead

Let's pretend that we're sleeping
Let's pretend we still care
It used to be funny
Now no one laughs

When everything that you thought you knew is wrong
And everyone that you ever knew are gone
When everything, everyone melts into nothing
What can you do
When everything that you thought you knew is wrong
And everyone that you ever knew are gone
When everything, everyone melts into nothing
What can you do
When everything that you thought you knew is wrong
And everyone that you ever knew are gone
When everything, everyone melts into nothing
What can you do

While drinking heartless melodies
Flows through the air
Please talk to me
Sadie
While drinking heartless melodies
Flows through the air
Please talk to me
Sadie
We'll drink a toast to absent friends
instead of these comedies
Sadie
We drank the heartless melodies
Open your ears
Succumb to me
Sadie
Track Name: Emerald Paths
First things first
We're not here
Nor were we ever fully present and aware
Our feet hang down
From the upper branches of the tree
Grasping for air
But enjoying the view

Now taste the confusion
By plan it's in our design
We made a map to manoeuvre
The emerald paths of your mind

We're standing in line
For some time in the sun
We're dazzled by emerald
We excavated from our mind

Now taste the confusion
By plan it's in our design
We made a map to manoeuvre
The emerald paths of your mind

Now taste the confusion
By plan it's in our design
We made a map to manoeuvre
The emerald paths of your mind
Track Name: Pack Of Wolves
I carried your body back into the night
leather skin, parchment lips, and distant green eyes
we left our mind and reason back home
we'll live under the sky, and the stars, and the moon

As your body shakes in the dark
You no longer remember my name
As your mind melts in the dark
You no longer remember my face

Your pack has been spotted clawing at our door
Razor claws, iron fur and beastly cold eyes
you said that I should remain in the light
But that there will always be room for one more
When the time comes to howl at the moon

As your body shakes in the dark
You no longer remember my name
As your mind melts in the dark
You no longer remember my face
As your mind melts in the dark
You no longer remember my face

Your pack of wolves is on the hunt
and I'm their prey, crack my bones, tear my flesh
until nothing remains

(The strength of the pack is the wolf, strength of the wolf is the pack)
Track Name: All Your Riddles
Rest now, you've travelled long and so far
just to reach this point
You spent your best years being depressed,
and the rest hiding somewhere
I suggest you give those thoughts some rest
cause there's nothing on the other side

Tonight
You claim that you have been cursed
By every rock and every bird

The mountain still singing
and your ship is sinking
the map still has blind spots
to be filled in

All your riddles are solved
And you are standing naked
Before me

Hey man
I know you're stressed
But don't do
Something we'll both regret
You've spent your best years being depressed
And the rest in hiding somewhere
Last night I saw you banging a drum
A blink, then your gone

Tonight you claim that you've been cursed
By every rock and every bird
Every night it's growing worse
Soon the bubbles gonna burst

The mountain still singing
and your ship is sinking
the map still has blind spots
to be filled in

All your riddles are solved
And you are standing naked
Before me
Track Name: Silent Is The House
Silent is the house: all are laid asleep:
One alone looks out o’er the snow-wreaths deep,
Watching every cloud, dreading every breeze
That whirls the wildering drift, and bends the groaning trees.

Cheerful is the hearth, soft the matted floor;
No shivering gust creeps through the door;
The little lamp burns straight, its rays shoot strong and far:
I trim it well, to be the wanderer’s guiding-star.

That whirls the wildering drift, and bends the groaning trees.

Watching every cloud, dreading every breeze
That whirls the wildering drift, and bends the groaning trees.
Track Name: Dream Rewinder
Silent dancers
Spell out the answers with eurythmy
Translate
Translate
Translate please
We got sign language and Morse code, yet we could never speak
Parley
Parley
Parley please

As we strummed the final chord
the lights would slowly dim
You never listen and you never give a damn
I'm a jigsaw puzzle that you wouldn't solve
You're a peacock parading on my lawn

As the lights went on
We endured the storm
(And then it all comes back to me again)
Touched that gaping wound in my head
And then my hands were coloured red

As we strummed the secret chord
the lights would slowly dim
Listen listen, to the words we never said
You're still a riddle that I cannot solve
And I'm a funeral marching through your halls

(And it all comes back to me again)
Track Name: The Lobster Quadrille
"Will you walk a little faster?" said a whiting to a snail,

"There's a porpoise close behind us, and he's treading on my tail.
See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle – will you come and join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, won't you join the dance?

"You can really have no notion how delightful it will be

When they take us up and throw us, with the lobsters, out to sea!"
But the snail replied "Too far, too far!" and gave a look askance --
Said he thanked the whiting kindly, but he would not join the dance.
Would not, could not, would not, could not, would not join the dance.
Would not, could not, would not, could not, could not join the dance.

"What matters it how far we go?" his scaly friend replied.

"There is another shore, you know, upon the other side.
The further off from England the nearer is to France --
Then turn not pale, beloved snail, but come and join the dance.
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, won't you join the dance?
Track Name: Suns Reverse!
All suns reverse
And all moons re-phase
Yet there is no change
No sounds are heard
And no light are seen
Inside this pitch black room

All suns reverse
all suns reverse
all suns reverse
all suns reverse

All days are nights
all nights are long
almost endlessly
no chance for change
within the walls
of this pitch black room

This black heart is my core
And it's mass has grown to large
for my body to contain
When we finally learned it's scale
We'll tear this cursed tumour out
So we can breath again

It's a beast that must be fed
Devours all meaning,
and a bleak landscape is left in it's wake
this terror fills the house
I'll just collapse
Now there's no light no sounds

All suns reverse
All suns reverse
All suns reverse
All suns reverse

It's a beast that must be fed
Devours all meaning,
and a bleak landscape is left in it's wake
this terror fills the house
No escape
Now there's no songs, no sounds
