Track Name: Element
A wave of disappointment comes my way.
I'll take all the stars out of the sky before I can relate.
I've seen inside. I know what it is you hide.
Why can't I find the time to burn this down?
I've seen your lie. I know you're here under the infinite sky.

Wake up! Take hold of this element.
We'll fall into the clouds again.
I've seen the future and it's full of pain.
I'll never go back there again.

The sea carves patterns in the sand.
In peace, the horizon lies upon the land.
I've seen your lie, I know it's here and it's still alive.

Wake up! Take hold of this element.
We'll fall into the clouds again.
I've seen the future and it's full of pain.
I'll never go back there again.
Track Name: Concrete Opera
Another moment taken from me, taken by myself.
Another missed opportunity, gone from the shelf.
If only I remembered all the things that you said.
Flowing through the running water, then flowing through my head.

You've got to go through with all the things that you've taken from me.
You've got to go through with all the things that you never told me.

I've heard too many voices now. I'm not sure what to choose.
I can hear you coming closer now. Should I stay or make a move?

You've got to go through with all the things that you've taken from me
You've got to go through with all the things that you never told me.

The distance calling across the concrete mountains,
The sun shines a shadow on a circular moon.
Raindrops fall upon a broken fountain.
Echoes say the end is soon.

You've got to go through with all the things that you've taken from me
You've got to go through with all the things that you never told me.
Track Name: Enceladus
Constellations shine together,
A thousand stars gather round.
Looking into the future.
Something so profound.

Light and dark collide and make a hole in the sky.
Running round in circles just to stay alive.
People never stop to ask the reason why.
In the end, even the great stars die.

Earth can feel every step we take.
But I like to think that's us that make,
The planets we live upon dissipate.
Every last resource we incinerate.

Light and dark collide and make a hole in the sky.
Running round in circles just to stay alive.
People never stop to ask the reason why.
In the end even the great stars die.
Track Name: Petrichor
In a half-lit wood, a long time ago.
A sorrowful river carried the water's flow.
Everyone listened to the years gone by.
Corrected direction from an all seeing eye.

Collecting the pity, I know.
Runs through your fingers, I know.
Still there in the morning, won't go.

Run faster than travel, let everything go.
The fall of a hard rain on a sun-baked stone.

Run to the ruins, don't go.
Look east for a warning, stay low.
Please save me from falling.

At night I can see you on my way home.
Wake up in the evening; you're on your own.

Expecting nothing, now the wall is gone.
Fear fails communion now the past is wrong.

Collecting the pity, I know.
Runs through your fingers, I know.
Still there in the morning, won't go.

At night I can see you, on my way home.
Wake up in the evening; you're on your own.
I let go of fear, now I'm falling.
I let it go.
Comes to attention, it's morning.
I'll take a blow for you.

At night I can see you, on my way home.
Wake up in the evening; you're on your own.
At night I can see you, on my way home.
Wake up in the evening; you're on your own.
I let go of fear, now I'm falling.
I let it go.
It comes to attention, it's morning.
I'll take a blow for...
Track Name: Last Resort
These are the first steps, of a last resort.
Standing on an empty shore.
These are the last words, of the first great war.
The Earth was stripped right to the core.

A flicker of light is all that's to show for the years to come.
When it shines bright, I can see where I went wrong.
I think I'm done pretending, silence needs amending now.
Don't want to dig myself another hole.

Every day a week goes by. I still feel the need to cry.
What if I was right all along?
And if I was to turn to you, I know what you'd tell me to do.
That would be a big mistake.

A flicker of light is all that's to show for the years to come.
When it shines bright, I can see where I went wrong.
I think I'm done pretending, silence needs amending now.
Don't want to dig myself another hole.

A flicker of light is all that's to show for the years to come.
When it shines bright, I can see where I went wrong.
I think I'm done pretending, silence needs amending now.
Don't want to dig myself another hole.
