Track Name: Golden Roots (Acoustic)
"you make me wanna make my home here!" what thoughtless spirit led to a compulsive confession like that? and what a shame, but i can not be considerate. through the branches and trees, over sticks and stones and golden roots among the wolves, raging along. it's the comfort of being free not to decide at all "i wanna be your second spring, dear." but is my fi rst yet over. am i high, low or lower? and as upright as a liar can be this is how honest i am. we will always be the vagrant. no rest, no plan, no constant. just one way to make this work, just one way through the woods.
Track Name: Pioneers (Acoustic)
we span the riverbed below and recommend you places we don't know we make the mightiest call to arms and grace you all with good luck charms we take the tides from shore to shore, all the banalities we fought for. i build a house in storms and sea and wait for the catastrophe. i found the key to infi nity! oh, what a waste, there's not enough to see. as all the amplifi ers blare, you keep your volume. and i, i'll take the mute. and yeah, this city is my playground, with all its slides and swings and falls the fever drives me through the valley, it's like a rush, a mountain tall. and by the night i am a pioneer, when all the screens light up the sky. light up the sky.
Track Name: Driftwood (Acoustic)
oh how i wish that i was fuelwood, so for once i was on fire. but right now i'm a thief, a liar. this is a time to bea small, not for passion or desire. strike a match to my skin, let the sparks fly. i will let them in. oh how i wish i still belonged here, so at least for now i had a home. but the aorta ran dry. no blood, no fuel, no poem. oh i would like to be a piece of driftwood floating by accident. sorrows companion has always been a burst a chord on the piano, adorable art. detest the truth and tear apart. let's pretend from today on it won't get worse. it won't get worse. the distant town is calling you. it's time for you to roam. set your sails to leave the shore. if not now, what was it for. sorrows companion has always been a burst a chord on your guitar, adorable art. detest the truth and tear apart. let's pretend from today on it won't get worse. it won't get worse. oh, we might just collide. oh, i would like that. or i'll be part of a causeway. come a day to rest, to stay.
Track Name: An Alpine Idyll (Acoustic)
we came, we saw, we lost our minds and went back home. back into the snow and we swore that we'd never leave this vale, grew pale and died of this comforting violence. the warmth of this song is only a cold, cold comfort. imagine being buried on a day like this. the humming earth, like an old chant to your ears. your fears, your grief, just sweep away into the warmth of these songs. and we are hauling our heavy feet through the snow. oh, so severe. oh morning, my mourning. we grew to love the way it hurts, it's our favourite thrill. when all skin is cold, winter's resting. when all skin is shed, winter's resting near.
Track Name: Bayonets - Ciao Roma (Bayonets Cover)
at the point that i suffer
i am, all over her
and it's not the best task
that's ever come to pass
now..

from this point, ciao roma
i'll sing this all over
and it's just the best view
from here, from me to you

this song is my escape, where i'm not afraid
(fuck the traps, you've come to save us)
disarm my one escape, where i'm not afraid
to sing..

im shotgun in a moving tide
im backseat in the hell i ride
and its all i've ever
and its all i've wanted
right now

this song is my escape, where i'm not afraid
(fuck the traps, you've come to save us)
disarm my one escape, where i'm not afraid
to sing..

at the point that i suffer
i am, all over her
and it's not the best task
that's ever come to pass
now..

this song is my escape, where i'm not afraid
(fuck the traps, you've come to save us)
disarm my one escape, where i'm not afraid
to sing..
