"You will never really pin these songs down. Without ever trying to be "mysterious" this music with its repetitions which blur and softly distort, the detached vague lyrics and voice which seamlessly becomes another element, is".

Track Name: Endlessness

In the quiet of a dream, we are drawn away
Standing in between, we cannot remain

Buried in the dark still, we were left a little changed
Shining in the distance feeling a little strange
I was the city that I never wanted to see
I was the storm that I never wanted to be

Through the endlessness

I rode a thousand days on a red torpedo star
To hear a million calls for freedom
On a broke down boulevard

I call your name

The desert smiled with welcome eyes
And its dusty stolen grin
Colours blue came stumbling through
Shouting ‘Where the hell you been?”

Through the endlessness
Track Name: It Means Nothing
It Means Nothing

I could be the spark for everything
Moments blaze the first, throughout
Come on easy rider, they all want in
I’ll be close beside you, in a perfect sting

I could be the cause of everything
You could see the world without
Come on easy rider it’s a nowhere fix
I’ll be close beside you after all
It means nothing

I could be undone for anything
You can hush the voice of burning doubt
Come on easy rider it’s about to sink
I’ll be close beside you after all
It means nothing

The old love songs that hide in the darkened corners
Weaving simple lines
The loaded faith of the lost and the searching
Following the invisible light
All the promises that we made
It means nothing
