Track Name: Shadow of Our Plane
"I watched the shadow of our plane hastening below us across hedges and fences, rows of poplars and canals. . . Nowhere, however was a single human being to be seen. . . only the things they have made and in which they are hiding. One sees the places where they live and the roads that link them, one sees the smoke rising from their houses and factories, one sees the vehicles in which they sit, but one sees not the people themselves. And yet they are present everywhere upon the face of the earth, extending their dominion by the hour, moving around the honeycombs of towering buildings and tied into networks of a complexity that goes far beyond the power of any one individual to imagine. . . If we view ourselves from a great height, it is frightening to realize how little we know about our species, our purpose and our end, I thought, as we crossed the coastline and flew out over the jelly-green sea."

W.G. Sebald, The Rings of Saturn
Track Name: Grow Twice
You're only as young
as the day is long.
Don't let that setting sun
steer you in the wrong direction.
You're only alright.

Don't let the sun set on a broken mind,
or a hollow pair of sweating eyes.
You're only as young
as the day is long.
You'll only grow twice.

It's only your mind's eye.
