Track Name: Disappearing
Drop and spill your pride on the floor
Open the windows and the door
Purify the air that we breathe
Let me see what’s there in front of me

I can see your face, your expressions through the smoke
As it’s thickening, you’re disappearing

Even if the arrows and the ice stood by
I will remember the silk and the fire
For now leave me be the woman that’s good for me
All the sand I brought back has left me empty and heavy

I can see your face, your expressions through the smoke
As it’s thickening, you’re disappearing

All the words that used to hurt me
Repeat them one after another
I totally surrender
Here’s my sword and armor
To walk away in flesh is all that really matters
As long as my arms are wide open

I can see your face, your expressions through this smoke
As it’s thickening, you’re disappearing
Track Name: Given
All the lines were written
And all the steps chosen
For those who were broken
To guide them in the right direction

A fresh new day has come
The last we’ll ever know
Complete, as we see it
I dreamed of a better place
With no one in distress
Oh please, make it real

I rest my head so I
Can see you better
Up there, seeing clear
You know the world shook today
Lands have been washed away
To sea

There will be no more fear, and no hunger
Please, come here and whisper in my ear
It’s time to leave
Track Name: Partir
Oxygène ma flamme
Mets mon pendule à l'heure
Je te le demande à toi, pays lointain
Je ne connais pas tes terres arides
J'ai besoin d'inconnu
Pas pour faire le vide
Ça, je n'ai jamais su
Ici, je ne peux plus tenir
J'y connais tout sauf l'avenir
Et c'est ce qui mène mon âme à mort
Ailleurs tout est à découvrir
Si bien que le temps s'estompe dans le décor


Mais c'est ici que je veux revenir
Ce révèle en moi une envie de bâtir
Soudain, partir rime avec fuir
Je ne vais plus partir
Peu importe où me mène mon navire
Track Name: Mouths
There's something I meant to say yesterday
It’s lost its meaning
What’s inside I don’t want to hide
I’m afraid it might make my river run dry

I’ll just let go
I’ll just let go my head

I’m fighting against my fears
Once again I’ve lost my patience
And I’m struggling
With the things that I can control from happening

Then just let go, I’ll just let go
My heart knows the way to flow
To untangle the knot down my throat
And let the light glow
So I can tell you what I know
And say what I mean
Do you know what I mean?
