Maya Zimmerman While fairly simplistic Post Rock, every track on this album is a gem, culminating in the haunting Cosmos, a song about Carl Sagan and how his death was used by others without regard to his thoughts and feelings in life. Favorite track: Future Fades.

Track Name: Spirit Of A City
No one talks in this city.
Spiritless walk, the streets at night.
I hear the voices in the shadows,
Saying we are the future,
And you are the past.
Your gonna tell me about your blood brothers,
Don’t waste your words,
Let your guns do the talking.
In the play grounds out on the island,
You got lost in riots, with no one left to fight.
It doesn’t feel right, it’s the second tonight,
I’ll follow the path, go into the ground,
But it’s the best in me, it’s the best me,
Its best in me, oh it’s the best in me.
And then the spirit goes, back to the sea,
Back to the sea, back to the city.
Track Name: Future Fades
Watching all your friends get high,
let the moment pass you by,
as the future fades.
Light another cigarette,
for the ones you never meant to,
as the future fades.
The nights you were the life and soul,
the days are beyond your control,
you can't walk away.
You came to rule the civilized man,
now he takes you by the hand,
through the killing grounds.

And the 21st century, is losing control of me,
as the days and the night are turning, into one on me.
And the 21st centurty, is nothing I want to be,
as the days and the nights are turning, through the waves,
of the young blood.

And they watch it all happening from a distance,
they watch it all happening.
As the Future Fades, through the waves of the young blood.

The architecture weeps, there is no revolution,
you've got nothing to say.
The artificial lighting, is dead locked in the air,
it won't light the way.
Where do you bury your dead men, so they never return again,
and do they hear me now.
You search for them in the backstreets,
you wash your hands at their feet, for what the others say.
And the 21st century, is losing control of me,
as the days and the night are turning, into one on me.
And the 21st centurty, is nothing I want to be,
as the days and the nights are turning, through the waves,
of the young blood.

And they watch it all happening from a distance,
they watch it all happening.
As the Future Fades, through the waves of the young blood.
Track Name: Headlights
You know that I can't,
turn the headlights down on this feeling.
You know that I can't,
turn the headlights down, let's just leave it.
Cause it goes just as soon and as fast as the people are going,
away from me.
Will they ever come back I don't know,
and theres no way of knowing.
I always wonder, how it feels in the end.
when the lights go out.

You know that I can't,
turn the headlights down on this feeling.
You know the bodies look liked ghosts to me.
They were never alive to me.
Can the waves hear my thoughts, can the waves hear my thoughts.

And you think of all the times you were right,
and I followed you down the fault-line.
My eyes got heavy and my heart wasn't ready,
to let you down, the lights go out.
To the darkest part of your mind,
nobody remembers where we left it behind,
the lights got heavy and my heart wasn't ready to let you down,
and the lights go out.
And the lights go out.

Through the headlights, turn the headlights down.
Kill the headlights, turn the headlights down.
I always wonder, how it feels in the end.
when the lights go out.
