A mix of natural and electronic instrumentation, which gives the listener something near a Bjork, Depeche Mode and James Taylor lovechild.

Lyrics

India

Written By: Drew

And I, I’ll be the one/To be with you, earth, moon and sun/I’ll dig the dirt if you’ll be my hands/If you’ll calm the sea, and it’s demands/That’s why you’ve got me feelin’ like I could move a mountain/Through time and space I feel we’ve grown/And I would walk all the way to India/To let you know that you’re not alone/And you, you have bad days/Well so do I, so does the human race/You have to fall to ascend/To feel the cut to feel the mend/You’re not alone

Saturday

Written By: Drew

Do you remember the day?/You asked me to sail away/I said, "Where would we go?"/Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe/So what could I say?/I had no one to be, besides tomorrow was Saturday/Saturday, we can play it as if it were a game/And let the night breathe life into our lives/Together we don't have to sacrifice tonight/I remember the colors/I remember your face/I remember how the light shone down in that mystical place/And then from somewhere beyond/I sort of felt like a kid/The one from the childhood novel/ONE/Where everything is Saturday/Saturday, we can play it as if it were a game/And let the night breathe life into our lives/Together we don't have to sacrifice tonight/Saturday, when everything else goes away/We'll throw ourselves back into the night/Together, we don't have to sacrifice tonight/Look at all the beautiful things that surround/Elevate and ground you/Greek tragedy seems false/Let it come down and heal you/I find myself when I reveal you/Think positive thoughts because it's Saturday

¿Por qué te quieres decir?

Written By: Drew

Las malas interpretaciones pueden cambiar algo inocente, a algo sin gracia/ Pero siempre yo he sentido la misma cosa desde mi infancia/Para ayudar a la gente a pesar de su ignorancia/Porque al fondo de aquella cosa, duerme la culpa de otra/¿Por qué te quieres decir?/¿Por qué te quieres decir?/No es la culpa mía, y el pasado no va, el pasado no va a revenir/¿Por qué te quieres decir?/ ¿Por qué te quieres decir?/Lo que pasa, pasa, y el futuro no es, algo que yo puedo controlar/Todos están gritando sobre “El Che” y sus eventos revolucionarios/Pero no se han dado la mano ni a sí mismos ni a sus propios barrios/Y la libertad que pensaban estaba afuera, en realidad se quedó en las ideas ocias y escondida entre los (varios) ?/Dites-moi/Dime/Je crois que je peux faire tout /Creo que yo puedo hacer cualquier cosa/Je ne suis pas invisible/Yo soy invisible/Aussi que le futur est mien/También que el futuro es mío/Il n’y a personne qui peut m’en prendre/No hay nadie que me lo pueda quitar/J’ai un nom et une culture, mais c’est ne pas assez/Tengo un nombre y una cultura pero eso no es bastante/Je dois continuer aller d’avant pour me trouver moi-même/Tengo que seguir adelante para encontrarme a mí mismo/Si no quieres hacer nada, no te quejes/Solamente acción para nosotros y nuestras mentes/Es una llamada de deber entre quien seré y quien soy/Dime tú; ¿que has hecho para tu causa hoy?
