Lyrics

Magnetic North

Written By: Veniscofsky, Griffin / Rane

Every year the moon it drifts
much further from the Earth
Be sure the day will come she'll break
Her hold and prove her worth

Days and nights grow ever long
Start halting to a grind
One face to burn beneath the sun
On an endless starry night

Locked rhythms swelling like the sea
Tides pulling in and out of me
Wave cycle meanings to the shore
Around magnetic north

We put our faith upon this rock
All too afraid to ask
Can we prevail forevermore
On a fragile ball of glass

Without the perfect weighing down
That which our moon provides
The Earth will never spin around
Then slows and starts to die

Locked rhythms swelling like the sea
Tides pulling in and out of me
Wave cycle meanings to the shore
Around magnetic north

When after you escape
come back to where you are
you know that like aint certain
Only the meanings and the stars

Locked rhythms swelling like the sea
Tides pulling in and out of me
Wave cycle meanings to the shore
Around magnetic north

Live in Style

Written By: Veniscofsky / Rane

It's not a habit at all
It only takes up my free time
It's not a reason at all
Unless you give it away

And it's been so long
Yeah it's been so long
Since I wrote you this song
I'll tell you how I feel

It's not a habit at all
It only takes up my free time
It's not a reason at all
Till you give it away

And it's been so long
Yeah it's been so long
Since I wrote you this song
I'll tell you how I feel

Well I see you on the isle
Where we will live in style
Where we will take the sun in
