Track Name: cold store heart
Though he gaze at stars, he still sees to the heart
through the filter of the cosmic debris.
Change was on its way - though he preferred it that way,
singing, 'Come, o rapture; come, o high noon life!'

Singing: come simplicity, sweet integrity.
Dance and sing your part to my cold store heart.

Do you think he'd believe that once electricity
passed from his fingers and shocked my old north pole?
Or would he follow me if I were to breathe
that his sorrowful countenance sat heavy in my soul?

Singing: come simplicity, sweet integrity.
Dance and sing your part to my cold store heart.
O, authenticity!, you shrill ambiguity,
find a reason to give a fellow a start.

Tendrement, constantment,
reviens a moi.
Gentement, diligement,
reviens a moi.

Singing: come simplicity, sweet integrity.
Dance and sing your part to my cold store heart.
O, authenticity!, you shrill ambiguity,
find a reason to give a fellow a start.
