1. Shift tides

(Instrumental)

2. If we're right

When you look into the future
Please don't tell me
All the strings that pulled us there
Were tied
I would try to make it different
Maybe better
Better isn't necessarily right

When we listen to the story
Please remind me
All the wrongs that lead us here
Were right

(Wordless vocals)

(Chorus)

3. In the race

And we see
And we see
And we see
And we see
And we see
And we never stop seeing
Everything is a stage

Who has the body today?
Who moves and takes up space?
We gave our freedom away
Just to stay in the race

(Chorus x4)

4. Allow it

Allow it to live
Allow it to see
Allow it to fall
Allow it to die

We're no good for you
Tell us what to do
Just keep chewing through

It's a strange city
And a stranger feeling
Their eyes are terrified
Please cut me free

(Chorus)

Please cut me free

5. Sides

I'm on your side
I'm on your side
Waiting for my time

This is my way
Of calling
This is my way
To show
This my way
Of saying sorry
This is my way
to show

6. Descenso (y regreso)

(Instrumental)

7. ἐκδύω

I leave you this
I leave you this
Part of me

Just leave it there
Just leave it
For them all to see

Peel it off
Peel it off

You're feeling cured
You're feeling cured

Take my word
Take my word

8. Beneath the tree

Beneath the tree
There is a door
There is an eyeglass

Beneath the tree
There is a throat
There in the Earth

Beneath the tree
There is a door
There in the Earth

Lights are burning
Fluid senses
Inspect the stars
Inspect the stars

Inspect the stars
Inspect the stars

9. Who's Barbara?

(Instrumental)
