Wake Them Up 03:59
Wake them up! There's a storm surrounding your lives. Don't look down. All around we see the tides rise. Wake them up. Find a way to open your eyes. Look around. Raise your head to see the fires rise. It was the ending of the world, how we got here wasn't clear. We all did what we were told, sense and knowledge disappear. Misallocation of our time, our money gone. Now the land is over run. Places of power, use your influence to breed a sense of social conscience. Don't work endlessly to hold on to that tower. The money and the power don't come first. What's the cost of the universe. Wake them up! There's a storm surrounding your lives. Don't look down. All around we see the tides rise. Wake them up. Find a way to open your eyes. Look around. Raise your head to see the fires rise. Don't find yourself about to go having never shone. Don't think that it's too late. Just realise the stars are always on..

The closeness takes away all the feelings that make me want to say 'let go'. It's too much to see it out, to figure out what I have. Around and around we go, over common ground like a river flow. It's washing out what I know, what I felt just a week ago. She makes me forget what I thought about our lives. I let it disappear, things aren't clear. When I succumb to the things I hear. A design for our lives is put in place I am hypnotised. Take away my free mind. Change the way I live my life. Place me in the frame you made. I love what you've done with the place.

So Much 03:45
Pictures of the girl stuck in to the book, by the box empty on the floor. In time I'll seal them up. But until then I'll look some more. Find out what's through the light. She said it'll be alright. Sometimes I feel that touch. I love you so much. Take this life, record it in a film. Stop it here then it can rewind. But now I'll turn it off. You're only in my mind. Lie down to sleep. My arms can take your weight this time and I'll keep you warm. From strong to weak, my legs will keep us moving on and I'll take you home.
