Track Name: Voices as Leaders
I WONDER HOW THE THINGS BLEW AWAY GREETINGS AND VICTORY FOR SOME OF THEM I REGRET HOW THE THINGS WENT AWAY
AND NOW YOU’RE BEING ONE OF THEM
I WONDER HOW THE WINTER FELL SO FAST
SNOW STORMS AND THUNDERBOLTS IN FRONT OF ME MY QUIET SAFE WAS SO UNREACHABLE
YEARNING SHELTERS ON A THIN WAITING LINE AS I BELIEVED OUR CONVERSATION ENDED
SO BRING SOME ELECTRICITY FOR THE WORDS YOU’VE PLANNED TO DROP ON ME
(OHH)
VOICES I LOVE TO HEAR DISAPPEARED ON THE WAY AND I MISS THEM ALL THE TIME OH
(VOICES VOICES VOICES)
AND CHOICES I MADE ALONE EVERYTHING WENT AWAY
I WISH IT COULD BE OTHERWISE
AND EVERYTHING WE MADE
WAS SWALLOWED BY THE FLAMES
Track Name: England
WHY, CONFUSED MANY TIMES, HAVE I BEEN THERE,
DRIFTING AWAY ON RAILROADS ?
I KNOW A PLACE WHERE MEMORIES ARE TORN APART.
HARSH TIMES AND YET VIVID SUNSETS, WINTER BULLETS... YOUTH AT SEA
ON MORNINGS I MISS YOU ALL THE TIME
THAT'S WHY I'M ALWAYS COMING BACK
I KNOW WHERE IT STANDS : IN SHADOWS AND BEINGS AND HERE I AM TO MAKE IT BRIGHT
I, STANDING AT YOUR SIDE EYES OPEN WIDE GEOMETRICAL
STATIONS AND
ENDLESS PASSION, EXPECTATIONS,
WAR ALL THE TIME. (THURSDAY!!)
HARSH TIMES AND YET VIVID SUNSETS, WINTER BULLETS... YOUTH AT SEA
OH OH
OH OH OH
SO I KNOW I'LL BE SORRY CAUSE I'M AFRAID OF RUINS
I'LL BE FALLING ON THIS AGAIN
I'LL BE REPEATING THE SAME PATTERNS
Track Name: Forest Arsons
WOLVES ON THE THRONE
RULED THE GLADE AND MADE A TRADE A CRUSADE FOR A BLACK UNDERTONE
AND IT WAS EVERYTHING I ALWAYS WANTED
IT WAS MADE OF STORIES SWORN UPON OATHES
AS I CATCH AND RETAIN
PLANS WE MADE ON THE WAY
YOU CARRY ON KNITTING SHIELDS FOR THE DOOMSDAY
SO I WATCH AND REMAIN, SILENT AND FARAWAY, STARING AT FOREST ARSONS
WEATHER METRICS
SEEMS TO BE INACCURATE
THEY MADE ME DIG WARM PARTICLES
IT’S EVERYTHING I ALWAYS WANTED
IT’S MADE OF STORIES SWORN UPON OATHES
Track Name: Constellations
SPARKS GATHERED WHILE YOU WERE FAR AWAY THEY GLOW IN STACKS, DANCING UPON THE DUST
FOR THE NOISE THAT YOU FROZE WHEN YOU MUTED ME AGAIN FOR THE BRUISE THAT REMAINS EVEN IF YOU NEVER TOUCHED ME
I’M DRIFTING AWAY
EVERY LIGHT DIES, AND EACH TIME IT HAPPENS I FORGET EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU MAYBE EVERY SINGLE PART OF YOU TURNED INTO AN UNREACHABLE CONSTELLATION
AND WHILE YOU WANDER IN CIRCLES IN THE ATTIC, WAITING FOR THE DAY
I WAIT UP, ALONE
Track Name: Wildfires
I’M BREAKING ALL ALONE
STRUGGLING TO REACH THE SWITCH
ALL OF THIS TIME I’VE WASTED THINKING
OF WHAT I HAVE DONE TO LET THEM THROUGH ? AND EVERYONE’S GOING TO DIE...
I’M BREAKING OUT ALIVE
AND ALL OF THIS STUFF DIDN’T WORK
MY OWN STAFF DESERTED
OH WHAT HAVE I DONE TO LET THEM FLEE ? NOW EVERYONE’S GOING TO DIE
GIVE IT UP
TURN IT UP
BRING IT ON
IT’S A LONG LONG WORK
GIVE IT UP TURN IT UP BRING IT ON
IT’S A TRUCE BUT / I MAY BE JUST FINE / WAITING FOR SOMEBODY NEW SO I MUST KEEP THE PROMISE STILL
AWAY...
OUR DESTINATION
BLEW WITH THE WIND AGAINST THE WAVES
BUT NOW I FOUND A NATION
HOW COME IT’S NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU ?
I’M BREAKING ALL ALONE
Track Name: Expeditions
THESE TIMES, ONCE AGAIN, I MISSED YOU, THE GLORIOUS ONE OH OH
THESE NIGHTS, SAILING NORTH ON YOUR PRECIOUS GALLEON OH OH
I WAVED AT YOU WITH CONFIDENCE I HELD ON TO YOUR REVERENCE
THEY WERE SO MANY YELLS AND SO MANY RED FLARES
MY COMPASS SHOWED ME VIOLENCE PICTURES OF YOUR INNOCENCE
AT EVERY TIDE I WENT FOR THE ANCHOR
FORMER DUTY PERFORMERS ONCE TOLD US A REVOLUTIONARY TALE “NEVER EVER RECONSIDER AND NEVER DENY THAT EVERYTHING LIES“
THE SHIP“S WHEEL BROKE DOWN EASILY I HELD YOU AS MY REMEDY
THEY WERE SO MANY SECRETS I GAVE UP TO SEA CREST
I STOOD STILL AT BRUTALITY I TRUSTED MY ABILITIES
AND EVERY TIDE ERASED THE WAY HOME
FORMER DUTY PERFORMERS ONCE TOLD US A REVOLUTIONARY TALE NEVER EVER RECONSIDER AND NEVER DENY THAT EVERYTHING LIES“
Track Name: Titans
"SAVE ME FROM THE HOLLOW FLARES" THAT DAY, HOW MANY OF US FOUND OUT IT WAS YOU
OH TELL ME WHY WHEN I LOOKED BACKWARDS SLEEPLESS NIGHTS SEEMED LIKE A NECESSITY
OH... AND YOU CAME BACK FROM AFAR SO MUCH FOR THE WAR
AND I WATCH YOU DANCE
LOOK AFTER OUR ALLIANCE
"TENDER GIANTS"
FOR THE NAMES, THE FAITH AND ALL THE FLAMES WISH THE SAME AGAIN AS WAKING UP WITH YOU HOLDING ON TO YOU
OH
"WE'LL CAST SHADOWS ON THE CONCRETE
WE'LL SET UP FIGHTS BETWEEN IMAGINARY TITANS"
NOW TELL ME WHY WHEN I LOOKED FORWARD EVERY RUN OFF SEEMED SO APPEALING
Track Name: Forger
ARE WE OVER NOW ?
YOUR HANDSHAKE IS A BOUND
THE EAGER OF KNOWING YOU COMES AS A BAIT
ARE WE OVER NOW ? I HOPE WE'LL NEVER FEEL FEEL AS HE DID
WHEN ALL YOU WANT IS YOUR FORGERY TO REMAIN
ARE WE OVER NOW ? ARE WE OVER NOW ?
YOUR WITCH HAT WAS LOST AND FOUND ARCTIC LIGHTS FELL OFF THE GROUND HERE WE ARE
HERE WE ARE
I'M WILLING TO DESCEND BRING IT BACK
DRAWING LINES, NINE TIMES UNTIL YOU KNOW
MY PICTURES ARE OVERDUE
I'M FAR FROM
FROM GOING HOME, HOME WHERE I BELONG
WON'T YOU PAINT THE SKY WITH YOUR LIES ?
HERE IS MINE MINE MINE DO YOU MIND NOW ?
Track Name: Neon Arms
WIND, TEARS AND LIGHTS. WE KNEW. BUT WE CAME BACK. THE CITY. DESPITE THE MATHS, WE WENT IN.
OHHH
BRIGHT LETTERS MADE US FEEL THE SAME WE SAW ALL THEIR COMPLEXITY
YOUR NAME WAS SO INVITING
BUT I WANT TO REALIZE BUT I WANT TO REALIZE
HIT THROUGH MY MIND
I MADE IT, NOW I'M DONE AND IT'S YOURS HIT THROUGH MY MIND
ALL OF THE LIGHTS FLOWING INTO THE CITY
SLOW AFTERNOONS WITH YOU AND THE COASTLINE PROXIMITY IT SEEMED SO EASYGOING
OHHH
YOU SAID "IT FADES ALONG THE WAY" THAT THE LACK OF SIMPLICITY
MADE YOU WANT TO STOP FOLLOWING
THOSE NIGHTS MY EYES HAVE SEEN THE SAME BRIGHT AND GLORIOUS LIGHTS THIS CITY TAKES YOUR LIFE AWAY, NEON ARMS IN THE AIR
Track Name: Blazing Trails
I BELIEVE IT’S ONLY OVER
WHEN YOU HIDE ALL THE KEYS UNDERGROUND, IF YOU STOP WANDERING FOR A DANCE,
AND IT’S A WASTE OF TIME.
I’VE BEEN HERE MY WHOLE LIFE
WE’RE WRESTLING AS ANIMALS YOU SEE HOW MISERABLE IT IS DO YOU REALLY
NOW THAT YOU’RE GONE
I WORSHIPED THE GRIEVING
AND MISSED THE STORIES ENDINGS THIS IS WHAT IT’S BEEN ALL ABOUT
I DROVE TO THE LIMITS
WHERE THE WALL IS PROTECTING US WAITING TO HOLD SOMEBODY ELSE
I BELIEVE IT’S MAINLY OVER
WHEN YOU LOCK YOURSELF IN SILENCE
WE’RE WRESTLING AS ANIMALS YOU SEE HOW MISERABLE IT IS DO YOU REALLY
NOW THAT YOU’RE GONE
Track Name: Roaring Engines
OH ALWAYS
IT CARRIES ON, ALWAYS
IN ALL DIRECTIONS I EXPLORED THERE'S ALWAYS
MONUMENTS TO WORSHIP
DON'T YOU THINK THE SKY ABOVE YOUR HEAD MAY CONTAIN A MAP WITH COORDINATES ? PILGRIMS HEADING NORTH, WANDERING IN VAIN
OH ALWAYS
IT CARRIES ON, ALWAYS
FOR ALL TERRITORIES I'VE BEEN THEY'RE ALWAYS
MARCHING ON, EVER
THE FERRY ON, THE DOCKS, ROARING ENGINES
TAKE ALL WE HAVE, LEAVING THE CHILD, TO HIS OWN AND HERE WE ARE HEADING SOMEWHERE, SOMEWHERE FOR HOURS AND DAYS WE'LL BE GOING ON
FOR HOURS AND DAYS WE'LL BE LEAVING ON
ALWAYS
