about

Future/Past is built around a dream. One of those dreams they say are so common when you carry a child. A subconscious and desperate attempt to make sense of something so unimaginably abstract as a human being growing inside of you. As in dreams, you find yourself being transferred quickly, from one place to another. Starting out sparsely, in dark space, the song abruptly shifts into a swinging instrumental groove that eventually builds and ends in an euphoric choir where everybody sings their heart out.

lyrics

In my dreams I am dying
The birds are leaving my caved in chest
I know all colours by heart now
My voice is traveling freed in space

You are in my future
You are in my past

No one knows how old this pain is
Blazing within me, like a memory of mine
I grow younger in it's pale light
The love it takes to grow a life

I am in your future
I am in your past

He takes me in to take me out
He holds me up to bring me down
Oh, and I suck it up and I soak it in
leaving you to deal with it
to deal with him
One by one you seize the fires
As they come rolling of her tongue
Cause always is how he believes
Leaves a rumble up her spine
It's in a plague that she creates
Bleeding out on paper
Hole by hole she shapes the truth
Into a darker blend to sing to
Making her high like towers and tight as fists
and after low and shallow
low and shallow

He takes me in to take me out
He holds me up to bring me down
I suck it up and I soak it in
Leaving you to deal with it
to deal with him

In my dreams I am dying
The birds are leaving my caved in chest
