Track Name: Stealth Mammoth
Lagging steps
Softened breath in wisps
Glacial colossus
Light as a feather is
Mind on the mission
Inner vision you’re living
Task at hand
White glistening powder keeps you hidden

I see arctic stars glimmer above changing places
Signalling the way she’ll go, mind is racing
Leaving in the morning don’t hold it heavy

And right in the midst
As this ground collapses
Set sail and take flight
Feeling weightless and out of sight
So out of sight
Into the night

What’s riding is pivotal
Ascent to the pinnacle
So invisible
These times are unpredictable
It’s war to make divides
Us and them polarised
She cried out for her peace of mind
Shouldn't stay inside tonight

Don't hold it too tight to your chest

Please don't hold it too tight
Track Name: Carried Away
Lost for words with you
It’s all so new, but I try to verbalise
As sunlight’s streaming through this little room
Think it’s time to open eyes
Still in dreams my mind is heading to move and take
But it hesitates
‘Cause maybe we’re just getting carried away
Too caught up in the ride

Then without a sound
Vibrant colours ricochet around
Bright and blinding, we’re swept off the ground
So surrounded
Cast aside the rest
We’re rising to the crest
In time there might be nothing left, for now..

This ain’t easy to undo
I'm tied into your tapestry
Weaving as you please
It’s falling into loops
The threads we pull with graceful ease
Hard to believe
So we break through the limits, take in the visuals
It’s inexplicable
But now I’m wondering if maybe we’re just getting carried away
And this will all just be a memory some day

Where the road leads isn’t clear
Not lucid as these tears
Ever-changing like the weather
But I know nothing’s fixed in place
That's when life illuminates
All the pieces fall together
Track Name: In These Seconds
These lines of sight inspire
Shedding of layers
Your hands around mine, show me
All the ways that I can see you
Coming alive
You’re tracing my outline
And your vibrations ring
All the way home
So loud, echoes as we’re stepping
Through every little crevice
Crawling with impulse 

In these seconds

Outside raindrops dance
Dampening lights dim
Nocturne rays curve around the corners
This embrace is circulating through my veins

Feel this hypnotic pulse
Into moonlit warmth we fall
Brimming with sedating dusk
In these seconds we are on the cusp
Track Name: Afterthought
Hold this frame for a little while longer
Cause these images come and go
Swirling like scarlet leaves in a flurry
Our jaded eyes move to and fro
But with the seasons things grew cold
Our axis tilted out of balance
And did you see the falling snow?
From a distance coming at us

So now I’ll pull apart what’s next to me
And reconstruct the flame you are
Hold it up against the sun
A work of art seen from afar

Now you’re standing there gazing
Clouded in an afterthought
For just a moment you were chasing
After what it was you thought you were

And the ashes seem to float
Suspended and aglow
Turning to my side
Finding bearings for this climb
Losing count of all the days
I’m peering through the morning haze
Was there something more to say?
Suppose it’s time to let it fade

These rolling waves allude to
The moments that we'll never lose
Slipping in and out of thoughts
Track Name: Concentric
One and one finds two
Sweet expansion of our worlds
Rediscover what’s been under this ground
And watch it all unfurl
Air making circles
Permeating this lull in the day
Feel your presence in these waves

Come round, round again
Briefly lost, swiftly found ends
Come round, round again
Dizzy eyes, trying to see ahead

So this love will never rest
Linking arms we feel the breath
We're caressed by the twirling rain
Painted in a different frame
Flares are burning, when you’re far
From your safe place, from your control
Spiralling infinities
Now you’re testing the fall

Intimacy in the ties
Between the lines of yours and mine
