Track Name: Go Forth
Go forth, all ye sinners / Put your glasses down and calmly walk away / I am so much like you / I have squandered hopes and buried dreams for pay / But, if it’s money that you crave / For which to buy a fancy grave / Just remember kid, it’s all a game / Rise up, all as winners / As your sun rises, it sets on someone else / Rise up, but remember / That each sunrise is a sunset somewhere else / But there are memories to be made / Pictures drawn and music played / It’s a ride. No need to be afraid / But if it’s money that you crave / Be sure to buy a fancy grave / Let the future learn from your mistakes / There are memories to be made / Pictures drawn and music played / It’s a ride. No need to be afraid / But if it’s money that you crave / Be sure to buy a fancy grave / Let the future learn from your mistakes//
Track Name: Father's Farm
We embarked one summer’s day from Dover / Set our course and sailed away; all over, all over, all over / I’ll be down by father’s farm. Come over / See me down by father’s farm. Come over, come over, come over / Sun came over. Let it shine on me / Sun came over. Let it shine on me / As if it’s just the way things oughta be / Sun came over. Let it shine on me / As if it’s just the way things oughta be//
Track Name: Cold Winter Nights
We were strong when we were together / We travelled lightly in groups of three / But with each sunrise, so did our tears dry / Morning had broken for you and me / But cold winter nights are coming / Cold winter nights are coming / Cold winter nights are coming / I hope to make it through to the other side / I hope to make it through to the morning light / I hope that, at least, I’m with you when our worlds collide / I hope to make it through to the other side / After high tide soon rivers ran dry / What would become of the sons of man? / And during long nights we saw the flames rise / We heard their screams come from Tian Shan / I hope to make it through to the other side / I hope to make it through to the morning light / I hope that, at least, I’m with you when our worlds collide / I hope to make it through to the other side / But cold winter nights are coming / Cold winter nights are coming / Cold winter nights are coming//
Track Name: Socialite
Deep in the AM; Somewhere ‘round 02:40 / At a home by the harbour / Like so many other nights, I head outside / Just for a while, shelter me from daylight / Such lonely street lights share a sight uncommon / As the ants are sleeping until morning comes alive / I head outside / Just for a while, shelter me from daylight / Socialize, I don’t need to socialize / Shelter me from socialites / I don’t need to socialize / Shelter me from daylight / Socialize, I don’t need to socialize / Shelter me from socialites / I don’t need to socialize / Shelter me from daylight//
Track Name: Bastion (It Matters)
Equal in both parts / We did the very least / The very least that we could do / And for the most parts / We did so little / The very least that we could do / Oh, words across the water / Oh, songs across the stream / In my
attempts to leave it be / I said it didn’t matter to me / But with some distance I can see / It matters / And if you’d only leave me be / I’d say it didn’t matter to me / But now that you were asking me / It matters / Oh, words across the water / Oh, songs across the stream / Oh, words across the water / Oh, points across my screen / In my attempts to leave it be / I said it didn’t matter to me / But with some distance I can see / It matters / And if you’d only leave me be / I’d say it didn’t matter to me / But now that you were asking me / It matters//
Track Name: Blue Ease
No one knows that I’m waiting / But I’m waiting for you / A good thing’s hard to come by / A good thing’s hard to / Sea and breeze / By the ocean / As we dip our feet into / The blue ease / You and me / Blue ease / You and me / No one knows that I’m waiting / But I’m waiting here still / No face left to borrow / No position to fill / In time / Endless tunnel / And then I can be your light / Your blue ease / You and me / Blue ease / You and me//
Track Name: Íðilfagur
I wonder if you ever had a reflection you didn’t like / I said to myself as I looked in the mirror / The answer: ‘Yes’ / In fact, the answer was a ‘Yes’ a thousand times / My flaws become clear as the lines become clearer / I wonder if you ever had a reflection you didn’t like / I wonder if you made a deal with the Devil / The answer: ‘Yes’ / In fact, the answer was a ‘Yes’ a thousand times / It’s part of the game when you get to their level / It’s part of the game when you get to their level / Faðir minn er íðilfagur / Og góður maður, þykir mér / Og móðir mín er mögnuð kona / Mamma, ég vona að ég hugnist þér//
Track Name: Endless Ocean
In a cabin in the countryside / I slept for a week / But as the winds of change had flattened every mountain down / Everything I love had turned to dust / I left the cabin for the dark and cold / Stared down eternity, I swear it / And from a distance came a quiet roar / The glacier spoke to me, I swear it / Sail on / Into an endless ocean / Sail on, sail on / Sail on / Into an endless ocean / Sail on, sail on / In a cabin in the
countryside / I slept for a week / But as the winds of change had flattened every mountain down / Everything I love had turned to dust / I left the cabin for the dark and cold / Stared down eternity, I swear it / And from a distance came a quiet roar / The glacier spoke to me, I swear it / Sail on / Into an endless ocean / Sail on, sail on / Sail on / Into an endless ocean / Sail on, sail on//
Track Name: Times (Still Changing)
I thought they told you to bow your head / Reciting stories / Forevermore / But, please keep it far, far from me / Don’t ever dig too deep / The times are changing / Someday you will, too / Beauty will never sleep / Times are changing / Someday you will, too / Where did I miss out, if love comes first? / Inside our atoms / We’re all the same / That is the word should preach / Don’t ever dig too deep / The times are
changing / Someday you will, too / Beauty will never sleep / Times are changing / Someday you will, too//
Track Name: Surrender
Painfully, it’s obvious that I don’t know my heart / It seems intent on tearing us apart / But should the world come crumblin’ down before the night is through / I could only hope to be with you / I will not surrender / So don’t you leave me waiting in the dark / Do you not remember, how I’ve left you broken in the past? / Painfully, it’s obvious that I don’t know my heart / It seems intent on tearing us apart / But should the world come crumblin’ down before the night is through / I could only hope to be with you / I will not surrender / So don’t you leave me waiting in the dark / Do you not remember, how I’ve left you broken in the past? / And all I do / It’s all for you / If you only knew / And all I do / It’s all for you / If you only knew//
