Lyrics:

Just one more tick left in my clock
One free ride home, one stumbling block
When snowflake stars and smile-shaped moons
Are coming down like lead balloons

I wish to be like a baobab tree
Standing tall in heavy rains
Where nothing else remains
I wish to see who’s the I inside me
The barest core beneath the skin
Of every me I’ve been

Just one more yes and one more no
One first-time high, one all-time low
When I’ve felt all that there’s to feel
And I step off the running wheel

I wish to be like a baobab tree
Standing tall in heavy rains
Where nothing else remains
I wish to see who’s the I inside me
The barest core beneath the skin
Of every me I’ve been

It’s coming down on me
From a great height right now
It’s coming down on me
At a great speed right now

I wish to be like a baobab tree
Standing tall in heavy rains
Where nothing else remains
I wish to see who’s the I inside me
The barest core beneath the skin
Of every me I’ve been

I wish to be like a baobab tree
Standing tall in heavy rains
Where nothing else remains
I wish to see who’s the I inside me
The barest core beneath the skin
Of every me I’ve been

The fuzzy logic of life
The chain of odd events
Something to tie ourselves with
In the midst of fragments

The revised memoirs of time
The sinking of the thoughts
The revelations between
The lines joining the dots

Should it be a slide into nobody’s arms
Should it be a dream fading on waking
Should it be a tide for us just to float on
It is something beautiful breaking

The lack of closure is hope
The will to stay alert
When it starts not to matter
Then it starts not to hurt

Should it be a slide into nobody’s arms
Should it be a dream fading on waking
Should it be a tide for us just to float on
It is something beautiful breaking

Don’t tell me how it is
It’s so amazing just like this
Just like this
Just like this

Should it be a slide into nobody’s arms
Should it be a dream fading on waking
Should it be a tide for us just to float on
It is something beautiful breaking

A slide into nobody’s arms
A dream fading on waking
A tide for us just to float on
Something beautiful breaking

Solitude longs to hide everything in plain sight
Solitude piles up ’til everything fades to white

Even the snow itself is so lonely
It falls on the silence that it makes
Even the snow itself is so lonely
In the silence

Solitude substitutes chaos with vacancy
Solitude finally loses its purity

Even the snow itself is so lonely
It falls on the silence that it makes
Even the snow itself is so lonely
In the silence

Two alike, two winters apart
Unnoticed works of art
Two alike, two winters apart
Unnoticed by Descartes

Even the snow itself is so lonely
It falls on the silence that it makes
Even the snow itself is so lonely
In the silence
In the silence
In the silence

Stars collapsing to black holes
Everywhere tonight
Interstellar guard patrols
On their way here, right?
They must come and save our souls
From the Sun gone white

No universe but ourselves
There’s no universe

Minds exploding to access
The eleventh sense
Boundaries we can’t transgress
Broken by our friends
Keep transmitting SOS
To the Great Silence

No universe but ourselves
There’s no universe
No universe but ourselves
There’s no universe

Keep transmitting SOS
To the Great Silence
Keep transmitting SOS
To the Great Silence
