about

The culmination of various, often contradicting thoughts about travel, progression, movement and the idea of "home" that have passed through my mind.

Track Name: In Another Universe
Oh, maybe
In another universe the gods will be
Oh, nicer
Oh, brighter

You could’ve been anything
You could’ve been anything
But the skies spin so fast and the gods never last
Oh, you could’ve been anything

Oh, maybe
In another universe the gods will be
Oh, nicer
Oh, brighter

You could be
You could be
But the skies spin so fast and the gods never last
Oh, you could’ve been anything
Track Name: Kinetic Friction
Walking out south thinking what we’ve done
should have led us to what we’ve become
I think it’s been cold for about a year
kinetic friction is all that warms us here

And … let’s get away
And… let us stray

From all the fallacies, the unnecessary needs
Let’s go back to the basics, back to you and me
I’m tired of obeying all your pleas, I don’t want this clandestine

And … let’s get away
And… let us stray

In this city there’s no sky, no moral code to live by
Though we try we’re still blind to our own lives

In this city there’s no sky
And though we try we’re still blind to our own lives

And … let’s get away
And… let us stray

Walking out south thinking what we’ve done
should have led us to what we’ve become
I think it’s been cold for about a year
kinetic friction is all that warms us here

And … let’s get away
And… let us stray
Track Name: Lovers' Locks
Lovers’ locks X4

Lovers’ locks cement us in time
And with it on that bridge I guess we have something to bind our love

Oh we came here when we were young
We were naïve and we knew not of love
So instead of giving certainty with talk
We ensured we’d last forever with a lovers’ lock

So lovers X4

Dance, lovers, to the day
Throw insecurities to the Seine
Our love can never come undone
No, our love can never end

So we bought a house and I planted flowers
That bloomed when weather was right
And you grew rash and I learned to cower
At every single fight

But lovers’ locks cement us in time
And with it on that bridge I guess we have something to bind our love

Lovers X4
Track Name: Hope
Everything around us self-destructed
The trees caught on fire
The flags unraveled into millions of strands

The walls came tumbling down
The animals began spinning around
Caught in a trance, chasing their tails
For the rest of their lives

And I’m going to try and save you
I’m going to try and save you too
The world can't end this way
There’s too much we have to say
And I still have hope

The walls may tumble to the ground
The streets may lack a song and a sound
We’re caught in debt
We’re caught in war
But were not caught at the end

And I’m going to try and save you
I’m going to try and save you too
The world can't end this way
There’s too much we have to say
And I still have hope

Walk onward my friend,
Walk onward to the end

And I’m going to try and save you
I’m going to try and save you too
The world can't end this way
There’s too much we have to say
And I still have hope

(Concurrently with chorus)
Walk onward my friend,
Walk onward to the end
Track Name: Spring
Little birdie oh it’s been so long
Since I’ve seen you face to face
It’s not at all your fault, it’s mine
That we've had to live this way

Cause I’m an owl and I needed time
To figure out these skies all alone
I’m an owl and I need to fly
Like men need unknowns

Cause I am strong but I don’t feel free
I feel my time tick away
Little owls can’t live as long
As they did yesterday

I know we planned to reconvene
At summer’s end
But I’ve exhausted my family
And my wings they need to rest

Little birdie don’t stay up late
Counting backwards in your mind
You write to me and tell me that it’s spring
Well, little birdie, go and shine

Little birdie don’t stay up late
This is hard for me as well
Let’s just smile and pretend that it’s easy
Like we did in our farewell

Little birdie don’t stay up late
Counting backwards in your mind
You write to me and tell me that it’s spring
Well, little birdie, go and shine

Little birdie don’t stay up late
This is hard for me as well
Let’s just smile and pretend that it’s easy
Like we did in our farewell
Track Name: Dar a Luz
I’m sorry that I had you in a war
I’m sorry that, like you, I wanted more
But now you've gone away and you say you’re not coming back
Now you’ve gone away to steal what you lack

This is your home
Where you've been where you've grown
Don't forget it

This is your life
Where you suffer what you fight
Don't ignore it

I know you feel safe
Feel free feel brave
But it won't last

I know you've been through hell
Lived through stories you can't tell
But it’s not your stone to cast

Little boy you're stuck in your head
You've reversed the roles to try to get ahead
But stealing wallets and eating fat at night
Isn't what’s gonna make it right

So come home
Come home

You can see the towers
See the glow, see the power
From your backyard

Hating those with those meals
Those who laugh, those who feel
Like you can't

Convinced yourself of lies
Found a way to get high
At their expense

I know you think it’s just
Think this life is what your trust
But it’s not self-defense

Little boy you're stuck in your head
You've reversed the roles to try to get ahead
But stealing wallets and eating fat at night
Isn't what’s gonna make it right

So, come home
Come home

I’m sorry my son
I’m sorry for what you've become

So, come home
Come home
Track Name: To Stay Here
Oh to stay here forever
Oh to stay here forever
Would the stars still shine so bright
Or would the chill start to bite
So, to stay here forever

Oh to stay here forever
Oh to stay here forever
Let’s just stroll through cobble stone streets
And venerate everything we meet
So, to stay here forever

Don't fade away, my dear
Just guide me through the city, my dear
I will hold on tight
If you promise to be right here
Oh my dear

So light the streets for me, my dear
And let the Seine flow fast, my dear
And if my time starts to go
Please look to me and let me know
You'll always be right here

Oh to be with you forever
Oh to be with you forever
Would you still hold my hand so tight
Or would we begin to fight
So, to be with you forever

Oh to stay here forever
Oh to stay here forever
Surely only time will tell
But I can’t help but dwell
Oh, to stay here forever
