lyrics

i see them race towards us
pushing back the night

changing
faces
pull yourself out
passing vapor trails
pure thought
set adrift
looking
endlessly
passing vapor trails
pull yourself out

you're someone who sees
you're somewhere in the night

you and i
will never see the starlight again

unclaimed spaces between
forgotten dreams of you and i

how will the season repair themselves
in endless daylight
permalight

floating unseen
held inbetween
unclaimed spaces between you and i
you and i
how will the season repair themselves
in endless daylight
permalight

dressed in shadow
just how long can you hide
you can’t hide

sand and dust, nothing but sand and dust
because
no one sleeps here
slipping into

endless seasons
there is nothing left
i have nothing left to loose
i am ready
to change completely
though empty reason
oooh that's when i knew

wounded seasons
they will live again
in the forest of mirrors
i lost myself there
that's when i knew
