Track Name: A: Adolphe - G8 Lie - Schrödinger's House
Schrödinger's House

Trees and houses
Appartment towers
Ships in the distance
Fog horns
And random visits
Every few hours

This is Schrödinger's house
No-one knows what it's about
Or how long it will stay
Yet without a doubt
As long as we don't know
We know it is there
We know it is there
Track Name: B: The Undercurrent
The river softly splashing on my shoulders, plashing on my cheeks
I surrender to the current, drifting on my back
Chest warmed by the sunlight,
My skin is wet, my eyes are moist,
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
Eye to eye with the sky, I'm wondering why
There's no hope in the clouds, morphing just like my doubts
Dripping dropping tears coming up from the undercurrent
Sucking me into the stream, I hear your siren's call

Willingly enchanted by your fairy dust
(by your airy dust - by your eerie dust)
From afar I hear your caring whispers
(fear your caring whispers - fear you careless whispers)
Succumbed by an earhtly choral singing
(unearthly choral singing - unearhtly choral stringing)
I'm almost dreaming but not just yet
(drowning in your dust jet)

The river softly splashing on my shoulders, plashing on my cheeks
I surrender to the current, drifting on my back
Chest warmed by the sunlight,
My skin is wet, my eyes are moist,
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
I'm almost drowning, but not just yet
