Track Name: NLJ & Miyoki - Shanic - Silence Left Unsaid (Ft. NLJ & Miyoki)
- I’m underwater in the cottage
where my mother and father
brought me in the summer and autumn 
coming up from the bottom
(
take a deep breath)

A voice is muffled but audible

- I wonder what’s walking 
between the garden of my former 

college.

- it’s not even possible
-
- about to take a test but caught off my guard to prove it 
I’m a
(hard-working student) -

- throw a look across the room
she doesn’t know what she ought to do 
(I’ve got you)

- - Lovelier than what I have to offer

I’m summoned into the arboreal to stop her

- Snow falls while the crow calls 
she goes on - prolonged, the road’s blocked
the cold grows strong

a faint vision - I drove a car
bang – collision, I witness it so far 
away but this is - vivid 

- I’m saying
“wait a minute”
as she faces my position
to explain her existence

Flesh yearning for
A dream-like world
Where the silence left unsaid isn’t as cold
Visions unfurl
In an illusion of their clarity
Just wake me up before I fall


The stale breath of asphyxia threatens as your own (The stale breath of silent death threatens as your own)
Constricted, taunted, don’t let them prod you to the bone
But in the depths I feel the futility of our relevance
No room for control or for intelligence (I can hear you say)
Yet in your arms I can feel my muscles tense with fight
I can recall my heartbeat pumping crimson, beeping life (Don’t change lanes)
Your bare skin, cheap gin, tall grass and your scrunched up jeans
Why do I feel like I’ve been plugged into some great machine?

(Why do I feel like I’ve been plugged into some great machine?)


How did we go from making heartfelt love
to overstaying our welcome?
they chased us
hellacious

They’re still here
Stay near
For you I’d give my life
Fiction or fiend
Stand back, hand me the knife

I see
your makeup streaks across 
your face cloth 
my teeth – they fall 
straight off
can’t stay calm

Your frame deformed
Your eyes wash off like rain
This constant strain on my brain
is driving my insane

Flesh yearning for
A dream-like world
Where the silence left unsaid isn’t as cold
Visions unfurl
In an illusion of their clarity
Just wake me up before I fall
Track Name: Nori - Shanic & DIVERSA - Dark Matter (Ft. Nori)
I hear your whispers
on the stairs
You already left me
lying here bare

Cold hands touch me now
I know you're around me now
And you make up all of me
But none of you I see

You're dark matter to me
You're dark matter to me
Something I can't see
Something I can't see
But you make up all of me

You're never there in the light
You never want to touch the light

You're dark matter to me x2
But you're something I can't see x2
But you're still all of me...
