Track Name: Ether
People see in black and white
Everything in twos
A world defined by opposites
But I know this ain't true

In death you return to the ground
One usurps the two
Also these false boundaries disappear when I'm alone with you
I'm alone with you

Nothing first
Nothing last
Future blends with past
Boundaries melt between you and me
Ears gone deaf
Eyes can't see

I pull you close and I disappear
I simply cease to be
I taste your breath and in a flash my weary mind has been set free
Mind has been set free

I become the ether
I become the air
I become the ether
I become the air
Can't tell if I'm gone or if I'm everywhere

(CELLO SOLO)
Track Name: Sunday Morning
Sunday morning
Sleeping next to you
Sunlight pours in
It's almost afternoon

I open my eyes
Amazed by what I see
So I pinch myself
'Cause it feels just like a dream
I said it feels just like a dream

I know that this is gonna end
It's hard to reconcile
Oh, soon the clock strikes twelve

And you will disappear
Can't you stay right here?
'Cause it's

Sunday morning
Sunday morning
Sunday morning

Oh, does it have to end?
Why does it have to end?
Track Name: First Act
The love has been confessed
And she feels the same
Better than the best
The sun appears
Then hides again
Infinite jest

You're surrounded by these ghosts
Loves that betrayed you at the most
But now she looks into your eyes
Don't feel like a joke anymore

The stories always start the same
A boy and a girl they meet
But narratives flip and start to change
This feels like the first act of a tragedy

(CELLO SOLO)

This feels too good to last
The best things still end
You know this from the past
The moment comes
And now it's gone
It happened so fast

You try to breathe her in
To always have a part of her contained within
'Cause any day she'll walk away
You still can't help it
It's a sin

The stories always start the same
A boy and a girl they meet
But narratives flip and start to change
This feels like the first
This feels like the first act
This feels like the first act of a tragedy
