Track Name: Simple Machine
Static, steady, plastic, motion
Lights flash, beating, almost, breathing
I’ll never find my way back
I’ll never find my way back home

Empty, hollow, spit and swallowed
Preachers preaching, courage, ceded
I’ll never find my way back
I’ll never find my way back home

So just forget about me, I will get by on myself
I’m not a simple machine, I have become something else
I’ll never find my way back
I’ll never find my way back home

Wise up, scarecrow, this is treason
Coal eyes see it, straw heart beating
I’ll never find my way back
I’ll never find my way back home

So just forget about me, I will get by on myself
I’m not a simple machine, I have become someone else
I’ll never find my way back
I’ll never find my way back home

Ever after, I get further
Who will still be waiting?
Ever after, it gets further
I can feel you fading
Track Name: Long Night
It was a long night for everyone,
The moon yields to a sober sun and her virgin light

Can’t unsee the things I saw
Fallen devils, false gods
In the violet light

Was it always this magnificent, cause it feels so different
In the morning light

Like the first word from your first born
Landscape transformed by the virgin light

How many times I’ve wished for change
Gave up, gave in, and called it fate
Repeating all of the same mistakes
Wasn’t ready for what I’d find

Whatever it is has turned the knife
It was a long, long night

It was a long night for everyone,
Felt the dull hum of wanderlust
In the morning light

Can’t unsee the things I saw
Fallen devils false gods
In the violent light

But now I finally see the sun
Drew out my wings flew over high tide
It looks much different in the daylight

How many times I’ve wished for change
Gave up, gave in, and called it fate
Repeating all of the same mistakes
Wasn’t ready for what I’d find

Whatever it is has turned the knife
It was a long, long night

I’m finally reachin’ to the sun
10,000 years there is a long time
Did you getaway?!

I’m finally reachin’ to the sun
10,000 years there is a long time
Did you getaway!?
