And eventually pass that light on again."

Track Name: Embers

Embers glow, tindered and they’ll grow
Smoulders the fuel and lovers in bloom

Burn and burn, as we radiate

Kindle that heat, rekindle the downbeat
Catches snapped edge, and matches to what’s said

Burn and burn, as we radiate
Burn and burn, changing our state

Well-placed branches, who-cares advances
Funeral pyre, cinders to desire

Burn and burn, as we radiate
Burn and burn, changing our state

I’ll burn for you if you’ll burn for me
We’ll radiate, combust naturally
