This is a rough draft of a track that would have gone on "S" but will likely go on a future work. Plans are to eventually expand on the orchestration heavily. Give it a few seconds to start as it has silence at the beginning.


concealed amidst his space again
wafting in the wind
a torrent swells beneath his skin
to and fro again
the quiet and the supple lies
are peaceful as he lays
it sickens me, his thinking that
it never goes away (don't run away, don't run away)

expand outwards,
count no loss as your own

if being yourself was half as hard as you say,
then fixing the world, it must have been a total waste
wouldn't you say?
and seared across my brain
a man who's color had run dry
he wore them true, the black and blue
across his weary eyes
when he was alive

expand outwards,
count no loss as your own
for subtlety in the black and white
that kept you up at night

and i don't
i don't know what to say
'cause any other day
it would have only been a joke to you
to you
