Me and the sky of the earth
When you try to increase your ideas
It takes a different shape
But it's still clear; it’s going up higher
Out of reach, delightful
It's more like a cloud

It's been a while since I've been seeing things
It's been a while 'cause I've been sleeping
On and on I followed the water course
Until it dilutes city talks

The song the bird is singing
Does express the same feeling
So the sky of the earth is trembling
For us to teach us one thing

Sort of renewing a maybe future
Lot's of rippin’ heart but it can't take all you got
Genuine is your own force
So you know its suspension
Not only a jump with a dive
If you're flowing in my mouth
While I’m drinking you'll soon reach out
The strength, where it is
But it'll also mean we speak the same prose
The one that says that life carries on and on
It sings about places so inspiring
It doesn't even exist anymore

So the sky of the earth is trembling
For us to teach us one thing


from Without Expectations (2003), released November 26, 2003
