Track Name: Planten un Blomen
One billion miniature moons
Each one a perfect replica
Reflected in each drop of mist
Above this lake tonight

They're just a brief distraction
from what's weighing on my mind
I swear I hear your voices
Each time I close my eyes

I know that it's a long way home
but how can I live with myself
if I leave you outside in the cold

We left first thing in the morning
And we searched for half the day
as luck would have it we found you sleeping
inside the carnivorous plant display

I know that it's a long way home
but how can I live with myself
if I leave you outside in the cold

You have nothing to fear tonight
We're just crossing the sea at a great height
You have nothing to fear tonight
I just need you to stay quiet for the flight
Track Name: Probably the Best Beer in Town
The muffled voice breaking in through speakers
Has told me things I can't believe
Between the thick accent and bizarre content
I wish you hadn't been asleep
I had hoped for a view of the Baltic Sea
But I had never imagined this
I'll expect good things from a place that'll park
a train inside the hull of a ship

When we fell asleep that night
I know we both had the same dream

You could cope with this sun's cheerful angle
And I could keep my beard
I'm not sure how I'd answer the question
If you asked me how to get home from here
Just head down the hill towards the ocean of bikes
Hang a left at that modest bar
If you see a stone bust of Tyco Brahe
Then I fear that you may have gone too far

When we fell asleep that night
I know we both had the same dream
Tell me what I have to do
To feel like I don't have to dream it
Track Name: Foteviken
Three months I carved this statue
Because the sun abandoned me
When the darkness leaves
So too shall my peace
Yet, as light remains
Gone are lonesome days
Sullen, so worn and weathered though I may seem
By my admission, your summer visits are what I need
To endure winter again
