Track Name: A Slower Pace Of Life
We can walk
For miles and miles
Soothe our hearts
As we both stride

Forget the stress
And make things good
Get oxygen
Into the blood

Made our packs
Up for the day
Got our tickets
For the train

To the thistles
And the plains
Hear the whistle
We're away

To a slower pace of life
A simple paradise
To a slower pace of life

The weather fine
It calms the mind
Up sunlit stairs
your shadow winds

Relaxing journey
We arrive
The river rainbow
Cafe signs

To a slower pace of life
A simple paradise
To a slower pace of life
Track Name: Save Game Room
All the struggles that you face
constant battles for a place
in the swarm in uniform
further pressure to conform

Find a moment to restore
Close the door upon your wars

Enter into a "Save Game" Room

When the work is piling up
and you've done more than enough
Every hour chipped away
exhausted eyes, hair turning grey

Find a moment to restore
Close the door upon your wars

When you're tired and depressed
I hope you find a place to rest

Find a moment to restore
Close the door upon your wars
You've made more progress
than you thought

Enter into a "Save Game" Room

Climb the castle from the hassle
Climb the castle from the hassle

recharge rehydrate, REHYDRATE ME !
Track Name: Getting Warmer, Explorer
The ice
Increases further north
But there are Different
Different kinds of warmth

The whiskey
Lips and body heat
Cocooned you feel it
feel it As you sleep


Echo howls now
Outside their home
The baltic winds
That chilled your bones

But lighter nights
they are Approaching now

Oh lighter nights
they are Approaching now


It's Getting Warmer
the heat increases now
It's Getting Warmer
the heat increases now

clocks go forward on this day
clocks go forward on this day

Sitting, eating on the grass
Up the the mountain path
Don't want to come back
Off The Beaten Track

Sitting, drinking on the grass
Up the the mountain path
Don't want to come back
Off The Beaten Track
