Track Name: The Tidal Sleep - Are you ok?
why couldn’t you be more like them
and less like this and more like him
feign confidence,
feign happiness
feign life
I found such confidence
while I was fast asleep
but the confidence left
with all the self-esteem
I was baptized by the night
kept my distance from the light
all my thoughts were fighting
a battle not worth the fight
I got to see this but I can’t look
I got to feel this but I can’t touch

can you set this right
and can you guide me through
I drew a line but I did not know
which side to choose so I chose none
but a life on a blades edge
makes it hard to set things straight
and your linear way of life
those compulsive ways to find
a way in when there's only one out
but you'll live as long as there are doubts
Track Name: Svalbard - Open the cages
Just because it was where someone was born
Doesn't mean that it's where they belong
Just because it was how someone was born
Doesn't mean that it's how they should be
Let anyone change anything
And live however they want to be
Freedom for one, freedom for all
A chance for one, a chance for anyone
A chance to live, to live open and free
Not in the shadows of others hatred
Cast by values so outdated
Not under the threat of violence
Never bullied into silence.
Oh how they will try to desolate your spirit
Just as they realise they they cannot break it
Oh how they will try to desolate your spirit
Just as they realise they they cannot break it
What is so threatening about our differences?
What is so threatening about the love in our hearts?
What did they do from the position of privilege
But hijack institutions and sell them back to rich kids?
What did they do from the position of privilege
but maintain oppression and champion ignorance?
What did they do from the position of privilege
But hijack institutions and sell them back to rich kids?
What did they do? What do we say?
Open the cages.
Erase the borders.
Smash through the ceiling.
No confinement for anything.
