Track Name: Arles
(oohh, right by the water, by the water)
On the north side
where you
found us a silver stag
ready to ride, didn't you didn't you.
Now, this hunger won't subside
ahh ahh ahh
So you lose yourself
Walking on the shore
Always wanting more
Always wanting more
from the open.
Oh this city felt
Like the newness should
Like you knew it would
Like you knew it would
And we knew it.
Track Name: Severed Land/The Sound
Severed Land/The Sound
I am older than it seems,
I was born from another sea,
Drained in nineteen thirty nine,
Lost from the tongues that followed mine.
And I, forget my name,
Send me back to fend
For the men who study light
'neath the cover of the night.
Light our children learn to fight.
ahhh ahhh
Oh, can't you see this is the severed land.
My country's grief held in the wrong hands
ahhh ahhh.
I seek only to believe,
In the ones who plea
For the rest of us who need
To remember what they did.
I am older than it seems.
As you face the ground, and you wait, wait for the sound.
And you ask for your love to be spared of all the selfless sin that has stained your kin.
But the lesser man won't retain a measured hand
And the town we sought to make our own will've surely grown.
For if I were alive, I would tell them of your time.
But the sound, finds your name, n' so you lay.
Track Name: We Already Exist
We Already Exist
We were driven by the sound
Washing away all other towns
We found the wave
We found the wave
An ocean became
The way we changed
Don't forget your sister's name
She carved your aim
On everyone's game
Then we walked into the snow and wondered why we're here,
And we shun the avalanche and never shed a tear.
Our skin grows fonder of you
Our skin grows fonder of you
There is no country better than your heart
Where we can watch the whole city from the park.
I was lead to believe that we already exist.
Track Name: Lovers
With a lover's song
Find us something for nothing to call our own
Sing it back to the time where we took it from
With your lover's charm, your lover's charm
We weren't born to be lead
In the rush of a night that will leave us behind
As we tear at our clothes like there's something to find
In our lover's arms, in our lovers
What's in a love song, you lovers?
What's in a love song, you lovers?
Bring us back when we're old
But if tonight we should die, we were never wrong,
We were never wrong,
We were never wrong,
In our lover's song,
We were never wrong,
We were never
What's in a love song, you lovers?
What's in a love song, you lovers?
Track Name: Alpide Belt
Alpide Belt
In the dark we're all alike
But we know
That's just a lie
And when those lies transform us
Into the tamest creatures of our time
We won't want to think about it
Teenage lust is all we ever wanted
Seems so strange, when everything gets tainted
And all you say
There's nothing to care about
Nothing to care about
Nothing to care about
Nothing to care about
We are young, four to one,
And we slide down the hill to defend this crippled land
Something I had never dreamed
Till the eyes of the old and the wind from the cold aligned.
I know a place where we could try to take us back into the dream.
Track Name: Echoes
Born to be bold, as the present folds in the strangest way.
Dark as your voice cuts across the line, the eagles sway
Over a desert we're to find
"They've got the watch but we've the time",
Your voice turned gold.
And all the while we played along, it seemed so real
You were discrete as the past divides your life in reels
You hear the echoes of your voice
"Lend me your heart for the easy choice,
The hard one's mine".
And this year stands alone
Like the chill of dawn
When the Summer's gone.
My head's to the wall as I whisper down the hall to where they put you in to.
And the cracks on the banks caused by visions of the hopeless fools that
thought to be true,
Are now arranged neatly and folded tight, you won your part.
Track Name: Light Into The West
Light Into the West
You keep taking so many different names
But you wear them lightly
With the softest wool round your throat
And a youthful spirit
You'll sail
You're a listing boat so sure you'll float
Light into the West.
"I must confess that you move me"
I too must feel,
Oh, simple heart that strives
to build you up to see
(tonight's the night)
Ahh, tonight's the night.
