On this page, you will find lyrics for the songs from “Chapter Three: Continuum”
All lyrics written by Anita Andreis

Follow The Music

You’ll follow the music
don’t watch me, just listen
You’ll follow the music
don’t watch me, just listen
When the music stops,
you stop, instantly
VERSE:
I have a vision of a bird trapped in a box
The poor bird flaps, glides, flaps again
All the patterns of our lives hover around
Just when I feel I’m about to drown
Tears come, then I cut loose and fly
CHORUS:
You’ll follow the music
don’t watch me, just listen
VERSE
Some regret not knowing (the) unknown
Others regret not knowing home
The dance goes on
without our hands and feet
The dance goes on
until our two souls meet
CHORUS
You’ll follow the music
don’t watch me, just listen

Tango of Sadness

You know I’ll leave this world
this beauty wrapped in pain
This tango of sadness
VERSE:
I’ve forgotten names
I’ve forgotten faces
I do remember little things
My life in letters
Life in Letters
I wrote them all for you
To erase the hurt
so you don’t pass it on
You do remember little things
Our lives in letters
Lies in Letters
CHORUS:
You know I’ll leave this world
this beauty wrapped in pain
This tango of sadness
It’s exactly what made us play
When time collapses
unguarded by your soul
Will you stay dedicated to life
dedicated to love
BRIDGE:
Have you figured it out?
What was I about to see?
I came to end the cycle!
Have you figured it out?
What was I supposed to be?
I only came to end the cycle!
CHORUS:
You know I’ll leave this world
this beauty wrapped in pain
This tango of sadness
It’s exactly what made us play
When time collapses
unguarded by your soul
Will you stay dedicated to life
dedicated to love
OVERLAPPING PARTS
What was I about to see?
this beauty wrapped in pain
This tango of sadness
It’s exactly what made us play  (Life in Letters, What was I supposed to be….)
Have you figured it out?
That I came to end the cycle?
I came to end the cycle.
OUTRO
I do assert that life is still beautiful,
in spite of everything
When I stop and stand still

Do You Remember

Do you remember life seen from the ceiling
sunshine printed in bars near the backdoor
caged in that little rounded head of mine
Sun warms me up by accident
just like no one ever really comes to get to know anyone
Caught in that insoluble prison of body
I must be an amusing little fool
always racing back to the beginning
u-u-u-u-u-u-u
Do you remember life seen from the floor
sun cracked the edges of paint near the backdoor
Still caged in that little rounded head of mine
Moon lights me up by accident
just like no one ever really comes to get to see anyone
Trapped in that insoluble prison of mind
Climbing the top along with everyone
then being pulled back to the beginning
u-u-u-u-u-u-u
He smiled and made me hear
the only sound he cares to know
I heard his chains of age
It seems now like he never ran at all
“Child, I am getting old
It’s not what they’ve told you that’s real
It’s not the world and how it seems
Unfair is the time you didn’t seize”
u-u-u-u-u-u-u

Last War

I see this place as a caging thing
Where all the dreams are fading
A killer comes to execute from the nightmare
I am not some broken thing trying to escape
But I refuse to look at the dark that is disfiguring me
CHORUS:
My heart is wild
and my bones are stronger than his will
I knew this is not over.
I knew why I was coming back to the dark.
I even had a name for the event.
It was the last war.
On my left, there was a young man
wiping his fears beneath the glasses
I didn’t know his name
but I knew his tears were mine
CHORUS 2:
“Did you know our tears and our blood
have the same percentage of the salt
as the ocean?”
I knew we are tied to the ocean.
And if there wasn’t a breath
of the sharp sand in the wind
I’d completely forgot I’m framed by skin
BRIDGE:
You see, the killer, he called, I said “Come on in”
He put his face up to my face so I could see
The heartless thing was the frightened one holding the gun
He said” These maps are not your territory”
But the trigger will fire only if YOU run.
My heart is wild
