I don’t know when or where it’s gonna happen Swimming pools are pouring all the options A lonely fish is what i am swimming the deep blue seas Loosened the leash I don’t know when When or where to sleep Because day and night are wearing the same sheets All that I know, I wear it wrapped around my head Inside out Inside me Welcome, Generation Everything Yes we do, do anything we want to Welcome, Generation All-in Yes we do, do anything we want to And i hope we don’t forget to sing like we used to I don’t know what And how to pin it all down They tell me sit on it, breathe it in, make it fit now We tiptoe on Different roads But never find out What it is we walk on, hold on to Welcome, Generation Everything Yes we do, do anything we want to Welcome, Generation All in Yes we do, do anything we want to I just hope we don’t forget to sing like we used to I hope we don’t forget to sing like we used to I hope we don’t forget to talk, to walk, to think to feel Like we used to / like we used to

We are swallowed by the night drifting further from time we don't sleep until we satisfy our minds We are followed by the notion that we must keep up, we can't run in slow motion It's like elephants marching, drumming to my heartbeat and they scream Like trumpets in my ear No you never gonna sleep never gonna beat them now They're spinning 'round your head oh they keep spinning around Be on time to take the Northern Line Be on time to take the Northern Line Be on time to take the Northern Line Be on time to take the Northern Line Northern Line is 'round the corner Northern Line ​departs from any border it's the perfect illusion, escape to desert islands, it's clearing your head and feeds you with a hollow sound And you will be on your feet You will cross the street For now You will be on your feet Through the burning heat The long run Be on time to take the Northern Line Be on time to take the Northern Line Be on time to take the Northern Line Be on time to take the Northern Line

Folded 04:40
It’s been a long time coming The wind has settled down No more misty mountains No more sound I’m leaving this ground Cause I'm just a shining star up in the sky waiting to leave this night All the roads we know by now and the skies that we have seen Are close to floating, roaming, tumbling down So now I'm just a falling snowflake melting on your skin and i feel like a howling wind on a hot summer day Craving to breathe in a Sigh Ahum I'm the eye of a storm And I’ll silently remain On hold Cause I’m folded Until I unfold again Again And again

River 03:44
He said that i'm a river a river running deep and wide That i don't need to go faster but just flow with the river tide And when the people keep on building along your riverbed Just keep believing in that stream of yours that they don't have ø He said that i'm an eagle an eagle with a fear of heights while fresh green grass has been growing over This big earth that went dry And when the sky is dressed in clouds it doesn't mean that it's about to rain down Only if you want it to Leaving it up to, leaving it up to you ø You need to color it all On a kaleidoscope floor Just color it all on a kaleidoscope floor Color it all on a kaleidoscope floor Just color it all on a kaleidoscope floor

The Big Play 03:36
I can feel the people spinning They’re hanging on an airplane wing 60 miles high Unprepared flight Well, break a leg and soothe your slides Cause you will land on soaking quicksand Be aware that the versions you try are not alike Take part in the big play no cards on the table watch your steps for the racks that you build up in the role you're not Or start like a new day speak thoughts out loud and don't whisper your wishes but scream your own written scene AHUWA Yes, we all get cold feet and we want it to die but instead we hold back in tableau vivant But it's all that we ask for the reflecting minds Until we've lost it inside ourselves wondering how it shows how it shows why Take part in the big play no cards on the table watch your steps for the racks that you build up in the role you're not Or start like a new day speak thoughts out loud and don't whisper your wishes but scream your own written scene

Belong 03:20
I don’t want to wake up Today I’ll be A travelling song in my head to keep I move Giant Steps with the same melody And slow down to find the harmony This road is long The landscapes are changing Right turns to wrong Into a lonely desert storm Could i belong to your heart Belong to anyone I don’t want to wake up Settle or break up My dreams they are weaving in a silver light And when cushions of clouds come to cover my view I know it’s all right to sleep on it a night or two Not all those who are wandering are lost It’s another way of washing the dust Could i belong to your heart Belong to anyone
