As my feet have touched the water Currents chase and never sit See ways of least resistance The quiet times we can’t resist Take the cold from the river Flashback to open lines Take the cold from the river A mad thought of self defined Take the cold from the river It never sees but knows it’s fine The past we like to favor Nostalgia’s warm embrace Like a grip on all the outcomes What’s ahead of us is far from safe Take the cold from the river Flashback to open lines Take the cold from the river A mad thought of self defined Take the cold from the river It never sees but knows it’s fine Take the cold from the river Flashback to open lines Take the cold from the river A mad thought of self defined Take the cold from the river It never sees but knows it’s fine Tame the look of reaching back It’s a hard fall down to get back on track Tame the look of reaching back It’s a hard fall down to get back on track

We look away, as the snow comes Barrels down the mountain, breaks the line From a distance, it seems so graceful Cause that which brings us down will play with time Clocks can’t ever change their minds Always, We’re caught off guard But, with so many chances So many chances, this ain’t force majeure Through the valley, through the hills Though we can barely see, we know the roads Some of warned us, some have listened But the volume’s pretty low with all the noise Clocks can’t ever change their minds Always, We’re caught off guard But, with so many chances So many chances, this ain’t force majeure We've got love, that’s always loud But, that’s for days, we’re all alone Needing ways for the hungry crowds To listen now, this ain’t force majeure

She said, why are you still here Have you said enough? I thought by now ignition would’ve passed And moods had lost their trust I admit for just one year, I said a thing or two Of questionable truth, with a voracity towards you Maybe tonight, I’d honestly just love Perhaps I might just mean All the things I said when I was drunk Maybe tonight, we’ll sit and have a talk You will probably leave The truth will feel like we’ve been actually taught I came right up the hard brick steps A home I never met Although I’d been there many times before I felt I owed a debt She was worse than me, unfit beyond belief City life was her mess, knew wealth and nothing less Maybe tonight, I’d honestly just love Perhaps I might just mean All the things I said when I was drunk Maybe tonight, we’ll sit and have a talk You will probably leave The truth will feel like we’ve been actually taught Nothin’ but a bear trap, so i’m better off walkin’ Find a whiskey and a barmaid Find a whiskey and a barmaid

The Wheel 04:13
All the lights receding now And the volume low What if the flame of a candle is The brightest glow Take me away from the action of The fanatical Each idea sells a potion but It’s laughable It’s a long way down It’s a long way down off the wheel It’s a long way down It’s a long way down Look out where the traffic comes On a London road What you think you know Could be the breaking load Believe what we’re told so easily It’s criminal Trust was a thing we used to earn More subliminal It’s a long way down It’s a long way down off the wheel It’s a long way down It’s a long way down Off the wheel...

200 Years 04:56
I don’t wanna say I’m down I don’t wanna scream Won’t admit the light seems dim Perhaps it’s what I need We’re always saving face Even in the cold And I remember when I could handle the load But all the same headlines Make the pious fold Let the sleepless sleep Let them take control Burning up in the oooh, atmosphere Burning up and we’re falling, falling, blame the disconnection I’ll say if we’re oooh, still here In 200 hundred years, let’s break the glass Re-occurring themes of truth Can we believe our eyes Take the salt from an older man One who’s heard all the lies We’re gonna read more books We’re gonna stay intact The future begs for us To not forget the past Burning up in the oooh, atmosphere Burning up and we’re falling, falling, blame the disconnection I’ll say if we’re oooh, still here In 200 hundred years, let’s break the glass
