    Quite honestly, you want to order the vinyl release.
    The real, physical one. Because that's what we wanted to create, and that's what we created, and it's very, very beautiful. But if you insist, you can also pre-order the digital album, which includes a PDF booklet that is also very nice.
    But, you know, the vinyl release is even more nice.

winter fingerprints on the window pane like someone’s been here just yesterday an empty home, an empty street all boarded up and no one to meet the war is over the war is over the war is won and whispers carried by the wind of lovers’ oaths and broken dreams and cherished letters like leaves blown from trees once meant the world, now soaring free the race is over he race is over the race is run the world is over the world is over the world is gone the world is over the world is over the world goes on wolfpack brother running to the water sister leading the way the wolfpack travels feeling the sunlight the wolfpack travels feeling the world father strong as the mountain mother bright as the day the wolfpack travels everything’s holy the wolfpack travels we shall be free never take it away from me the wolfpack travels everything’s holy the wolfpack travels we shall be free serenade mountain top
 hear the nightbirds calling wide awake 
a new day dawning listen to the serenade listen to the serenade
 that’s been playing all this time age of reason
 wish for an angel
 manufacture
 your very own hell
 waiting for the hurricane waiting for the hurricane
 that’s been coming all this time mountain top
 everything is different new life everything is silent
 listening to the serenade listening to the serenade that’s been playing all this time

June Lime tree blossom Autumn son Coming home Go ahead and run Run into her open arms Running to her love Run into her open arms again Blooming in sunlight Blooming unworried Blooming in love In your mother's arms again Run to love Run to love To love To love

Play Play me Feel me Stroke me Breathe on me See you Want you Take you Leaving you mute Take this silence away and play Take this silence away and play Oh take this silence away Bought and sold Desired and owned Jealously loaned Turning to stone Take this silence away and play Take this silence away and play Oh take this silence away Take this silence away and play Take this silence away and play Oh take this silence away
