Shimmer 05:41
Spinning in an endless void Then surrounded by faint light Here in this empty space I see signals from far away Out beyond the stars I give my very soul To you Close your eyes forever See the sunlight shimmering Beyond ghost ships Where the black sand touches the sea Our communion Reach Reach out your hands I give my very soul To you
2.
Amnesia 05:14
I mean, I should know I've wandered through this city all alone I made my way by muscle memory But I can't see The streets and signs I recognize The buildings are all different These machines Have eaten at the fabric of our beings They've altered our ability to taste And my head aches I'm missing my connection Not just to the hive but to the heart To you I will be true I will be true I forget Everything except these broken songs Scattered and emotional refrains They remain Diamonds and rubies Sifted from the ashes of the past Still intact Still intact
3.
Hold On 04:43
All this time You've been stuck in your head Waiting for your shadow to bend Where to turn? Where could it lead? Is there anywhere you’d rather be? Hold on Your blood is boiling It's all within you Is it better to give or just think about it? It can be counterintuitive but you'll figure it out These walls Built around your heart Are falling for you one by one Watch them fall Where to turn? Where could it lead? Is there anywhere you’d rather be? Hold on This dream is bigger than you thought, I promise It's all within you Is it better to give or just think about it? It can be counterintuitive but you'll figure it out Hold on... Your blood is boiling It's all within you Is it better to give or just think about it? It can be counterintuitive but you'll figure it out Take all the time you need, love I will live in your belief I know I left you dry When you needed me This is a holy promise A self-fulfilling prophecy When you sing, love Will you remember me?
4.
Fight the nods And change the audio Driving east and headed for the dawn Moving on Vague shapes in scenery Focus on memory, a flicker in the dark A bright tomorrow When it’s late And I’m awake like this In an anxious grip, that old paralysis I think you were just like me Sensitive and lost Now you’re gone and I’m still reeling What’s left? Imagination and patience Seduced, quietus est Rest in sweet nothingness Oh to begin again Begin again Brave and innocent Innocent What’s next? Imagination and patience

Blue Key 02:43
6.
You arrived on earth Searching for a home Beams of light Guiding me to you Keep me please Now I'm in your arms Now I'm at your feet Hold on to me Alien in a glass case Looking out your eyes A passive vacant stare Curious Are you even there? Alien in a glass case Hold on to me
7.
Möbius strip Your song on my lips Twisting me up In your infiniteness Around and around Again and again Möbius strip I’m losing my place I cannot resist Tracing your shape Feel your twist, your circle, your plane Möbius strip I said I would stay Möbius strip Every day Feels the same Just cycles in space Around and around Again and again Möbius strip I’m losing my way I cannot resist Tracing your shape Here comes the flip That gradual change Möbius strip I said I would stay Tat twam asi
8.
A ghostly melody Keeping me awake I don’t know where it came from As day breaks I tried to capture it Keep it in a cage Divine and rapturous The melody escaped Call out for you On a starry plain At the mountains’ edge I’m always listening To songs of love and death Call out for you
9.
Listen closely If you let them, they will speak Grandmother, you are here Grandfather, you are here All the elders All the living breathing earth You are here Distant lightning leaps and plays Thunder echoes in heavy rain Rising mist in the cool air You are there You are there Rising mist in the cool air You are there Mirror water Spires of stone Sacred mountain Above it all Little birds lead the way to your home To your home I will listen Ask for you Sing your stories Speak your truth Send me visions, visions in the night Send me strength, strength to live and thrive Mother nature, father sky Mother nature, father sky Mother nature, father sky
10.
Infinity 04:16
Angels speaking of infinity In sacred song Fallen You fell into deepest sleep Then rose beyond my reach Ask you where you’ve been You’d say you never left Just changed instead I know you live on In infinity all alone Swimming In that ether sea You’ve changed a bit And carried on Fallen into deepest sleep You rose beyond my reach Beyond my reach Ask you where you’ve been You’d say you never left Just changed instead
11.
Water/Waves 05:56
When you said forever Did you mean forever too? I could do forever If I could be with you Dive into the water I could hide beneath the waves Hold my breath and wait Shelter in the silent deep Looking for that missing piece I can feel your rhythm I can hear your steady beat Tapping out a message Speaking to me secretly Dive into the water I could hide beneath the waves Hold my breath and wait Shelter in the silent deep Looking for that missing piece Carry on for the love of God Carry on You are not lost I will carry on Dive into the water I could hide beneath the waves Hold my breath and wait
12.
Spider Silk 04:45
I’m wrapped up in spider silk The trees on our street form a canopy Snow falling fast Past sodium lamps It’s weaving me in Weaving me in Late at night in emergency Walking the halls Worried and praying for you Stay calm, think positive It’s weaving me in Weaving me in I’m wrapped up in spider silk The trees on our street framing symmetry Can’t shake the thought I’m where I belong It’s weaving me in Weaving me in
