Track Name: Nothing
everything, anything, everything, nothing
everything is all right...it's all right
I don't ever think, I don't ever want to think
I don't want to know anything
I don't ever know, I don't ever want to know
I just see things pass away
Track Name: The Bells
everything seemed so fine
everything fell so far
everything came so slow
everything burned so fast
don't ever think of me
don't ever call my name
don't ever, need some time
don't ever drift from me
Track Name: This Decline
up from the fields
they come to me from far away
up from the sea
they take from me just everything
up, out of time
they smile for me then drift away
up from the foam
with twisted fates they torture me
smile for me again
smile for me just one more time
Track Name: Down There
everybody goes down there, everybody goes down
everyone sees everyone, again and again
down there, down...down there, down
down again...down there, down, down
down again, everything seems so...
