fountain 06:00
what lies beyond the fringe of the woods? dust to dust, so we leave for good when all has gone to blazes, i start to run until i find places where nobody's gone no more weight on your conscience with ease, i go back to the start surge like a fountain, like tide and swallow the bleed flows like a fountain, inside gather force from the sea riding this giant wave, untied let it wash me clean crawling through deafening cold turning head, there's no sight of home though my body's aching, we have to push on for every stride, a new line is drawn from watching eyes, i blindly rove to guard my stories and find new gold

deep blue diver with our hopes in your hands won't you take me with you to another land? pure sapphire, hiding in the sands of the darkest depths ever known to man jointly, there is nothing we can't do what composure and sharp slight of hand at night, i lay awake and hear you call my name in the strangest lands, i will grasp my chance sing the unsung words i have searched to spell and i shackle myself, i risk it all bringing us closer to the core returning treasures to the shore and together, we take back what is ours hunting for pearls at the ocean floor for us to cherish and adore days are hollow nights come to my defence i shut my eyes and focus not to lose her sense it's her we follow she holds the secret spell i know the place she goes, i wave her farewell jointly, there is nothing we can't do

vista 05:04
stretching out before my eyes all riches a ruler requires regal shimmer blinding shine all hollowness when all this is mine through all the shallow depths i had to wade this could have become my darkest hour enough of days of living in the shade my icy heart will turn to gold gazing underneath this tidy sky claim my land of frozen soil rest my eyes on this grand view making it mine can you follow me never to be found? tasting salty in the great blue, we will shine improbable place unknown untouched and undestroyed here i let my armies grow our voices will loudly crow who ever needed identity to reign make them believe to cure their drought i want the world rushing through my veins can you follow me through the second round? can you taste the pale white salt against your tongue?
4.
tap your glass, let us see you unfold shall i tap my glass and give it my all? we could tap our glasses, let ourselves go now tap my glass, raise my voice to call upon your attention as it fills to the verge when full, it breaks and floods all suspension draw a breath and let ourselves go through the dark veil, we slowly float feel the salt slowly fill your throat from the tide that's rising using all of my force, i form shapes of the sea you're changing its course we are creating new islands now will the flood come swallow down all our sorrow down and down, we drown, we drown we drown here let the shallows of above forget us getting closer to the bottom the venture of a life in the cold never to be forgotten unless they want to let themselves go unless they choose to be swallowed then the above will be visible we are creating new islands the tide is rising

blue blue 05:27
in the blackened waters of conceit i saw my silhouette pale and bleached all thin outlines and no shape dash the surface for the self to show displays a vague shadow i should know unless you define me, there's no faith continue the line i draw fill in the missing mark without you, you i am who? build me up all nice and tall lift me up and make me soar out of the blue, blue i'll be new here we spent every resource against the current, change the course with no land in sight give me pace owning up to each letter spelled rewrite the story that i now tell come let's run from the chase across the bottomless blue seeking the truth, i turn to you reflected back in all your shine a making of your design

thin 05:33
our finds beneath the cloak of night has our minds in control we guard them with our weary eyes and we watch them grow when the time is right and we’re ready to begin at first tide, your patience’s wearing thin we scatter in the night like scarlet red on winter white melting into thin the kind of which i came to be after being swallowed whole by offering a piece of me to any given fool we scatter in the night like innocent sheets of white spreading by the wind they turn to us they ask us why who say they are to trust what we define?
7.
it's a thin, thin line and i’ve walked both sides of it seen the other side appear so tempting, worth dying for it and your limbs aching out of want absorbing your every thought worth risking it all for working its wonders now for you over the ocean outcast, with nowhere to go a brighter forecast, new winds will blow the storm that's drawing near will calm and the air is clear waste my youth chasing kites i know will blow out of my hands push our heads in the sand, there's nothing here to seek no discovery of mine will be safe in these seas you feel that bitter taste on your tongue swallow your every wrong let your sins fill your lungs ending all worries now for you overlooking our past, letting it go a brighter forecast, new winds will blow the storms that's drawing near will calm and the air is cleared waste my youth chasing kites i know will blow
8.
ripple 03:35
with one hand above the rising line fighting to keep my innocence dry before we sail this raft aground if we won't live to hear the sound no built ship can save their kind they’ll be holding their breaths for the rest of their lives before you sail that raft aground join us in the search and take a dive flotsam and jetsam all this driftwood can't you see the forest for the trees?
9.
the life has gone from this room there is no future for me there was dancing, and the mood shifted from tender to a lifeless beat needless happy as in june when this battle stained the white with bleeding i will not be equal to the fool who cherishes her own misdeed look at the stars in the winter sky everything will bleed tonight what a beautiful day to die the last i saw of myself was a shadow in the water stream and the life that i left to walk into the land of defeat now this is home, this is wealth awakening to the sound of the sea where i can watch from a distance and rule my land of misery look at the stars in the winter sky everything will bleed tonight what a beautiful day to die feel the air grow cold and dry everything will bleed tonight what a beautiful day to die the shadow from the former over my shoulder waiting to take me home i heard its every call i know what it wants i’m willing to leave for home

shadowshow 05:24
i am fire, i am damage in the making i am an army set out to control your every ticking i am a giant stepping on the tiny world you live in and you shake and you shiver as the roof is coming down and the walls grow thinner shadowshow darkens the river turn hearts into stone we run, we run terrified, what have we done? is this how it goes? silence grows loudly bigger its heartrending crow you run, you run terrified, what have you done? is this how it goes? it's how it goes mass confusion never been so excited what your hearts felt for us was evidently unrequited and by the sea, we’re laying down our hopes you will conquer all your rise, our fall and by the sea, i’m laying down my hopes we will conquer all our rise, your fall and i shake and i shiver as i cut through skin and bone can you solve the riddle?
