1.
Late last night the airborne made their move And trailed behind the traces of their destination The glory of the south lies in a time ago It’s difficult to know if we should stay or we should go Say my name, it’s jaded And you can call me blind You can call me listless And say that I’m too kind But I know That matter has the greatest weight in your eyes And what you see is what you state in your eyes As rotor blades and wings cut by And they lay this track all across the plain And tempt your wandering eye with connections made And we’ll wake with those trails in the air
2.
Beyond the glass The isolation where we used to stay The autumn days would wane away And we’d light the fires We were smoke, we were fire We were the things we never spoke of And the things we never learned We were earth, frozen tight We were the fading cold horizon The axis and the turn And one must roll the dice It was in just such a winter that It played its part A role so small that I’ve forgotten Those December songs Just a push and they were gone
3.
Oh it was so beautiful, a journey so sublime Sailing on the overnight, which doubled up the time There was the champion of breathlessness, a particle of wine Which I bought to see the journey through And at that moment you did not decline The sun would rise and we would set Upon the path to then repeat behaviour A history, a legacy reflected in the trails A hundred thousand islanders, a hundred miles behind Awakened to their audience, a bright fluorescent sun A sun that shone right over us, and glanced across the sea One that shone as if to welcome us, and given its approval we could sleep The sun would rise and we would set Upon the path to then repeat behaviour A history, a legacy reflected in The way we danced upon the sea And recognized our liberty So tell those others take their leave Tell them not to cry or grieve Or crash around in our wake Just rest assured that we will make the shore

She strolled outside and she wore that smile Out of the cold it’s alright She should climb, and they say she moves Out of the cold it’s alright Feed, feeds the open stream As it feeds her contacts grow One step away from Tokyo One step from her Berlin dream She says that time moves faster now More than it used to it seems Faith renewed in a world so small The ports are alive once again
5.
Cold on the bus in the winter its January Passengers all sitting left of the aisle Windows are steamy, not knowing quite where we are Sitting and thinking and counting the miles Taking the story of LM it told the truth Was it for this it was destined to die Told they were right as the sentence was passed upon Publish, be damned just for questioning why Now there is nowhere left to go Now there is nothing we don’t know I don’t look at photographs Don’t need those borders I don’t see those movie screens Playing to formulas of 80 years Where are the planes in the house with the cameras? Where are the planes in screens on the walls? Tired of these eyes this surveillance I try to hide Only to find we are courting it all Now there is nowhere left to go Now there is nothing we don’t know I don’t look at photographs Don’t need those borders I don’t see those movie screens Playing to formulas of 80 years I don’t look at photographs Don’t need those borderlines Don’t look at movie screens Playing those formulas I don’t need that second sight Don’t want those mediums I don’t want astrology Or other predictions I don’t want those cameras A lifestyle or surgery I don’t want your good advice Playing on formulas For 80 years. Let them see, let them see all of our moments at once Let them see, let them see all the stars shining at once Let them see, let them see all of the images and Let them see, let them see every flickering screen We will let their vision in, I’m envisioning
6.
The day will come soon and it tells That all we lost will be returned A gift that you never knew you gave How I wish we had just one of those homes That I recall so lazily That you could play with those ghosts for me For them And may you always be free Catherine’s child, such energy Shows us how to be, happily So don’t tell your friends at the hospital they’re not as lucky as you I’ll come to rely on you more or less, I know it’s true We are the future that you never asked for and you couldn’t choose But where there is hope there is purpose And then there is you How we waited, all created And I guess there is an undisclosed hope That you will span those distances separating us all 86 years and 2000 miles It’s quite a load for one so young So you just do what you will But don’t tell your friends at the hospital they’re not as lucky as you I’ll come to rely on you more or less, I know it’s true We are the future that you never asked for and you couldn’t choose But where there is hope there is purpose And then there is you How we waited, all created
