about

"Lights in the Dark" is very much inspired by the chaos of the world around us, and asks us to ponder - perhaps there are some lights we can only see in the dark.

lyrics

Our past is full of dagers
It ain't wise to keep it close.
If we kick up our inner embers
That fire better be for light.
How big is your sky?
Can you cradle it in your eye?
Can you seak your peaks and valleys with a smile deep inside?

Time will make anything crumble
There are lights we can only see in the dark
Even the mountains were young once
Only a fraction of what was, still is

I was drawn to the darkness,
In spite of myself.
Don't touch it!
Clouds burst into harder things...
For nothing cleaves a mountain's sides
Like time and sky's watery eyes
There may be more existance then we will ever find....

Time will make anything crumble
There are lights we can only see in the dark
Even the mountains were young once
Only a fraction of what was, still is

Tout peut s’effondrer avec le temps
Il y a des lumières qu’on ne voit que dans le noir
Même les montagnes ont été jeunes
Qu’une fraction de ce qui était, l’est encore
