Track Name: Sleep running
In my dream
I was laughing about something,
until I started crying.
I wasn’t even thinking of you.
My best friend says
the difference between
hysteria and sadness
has always been a
fine line for me.
But I was not sad.
I just couldn’t catch my breath –
running after you.

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the LORD rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the bright of your dawn.
- Isaiah 60:1-3
Track Name: There is no rose
There is no rose of such virtue,
as is the rose that bare Jesus.
There is no rose of such virtue,
as is the rose that bare Jesus.

Alleluia

There is no rose of such virtue,
as is the rose that bare Jesus.
For in this rose contained
was heaven and earth in little space.

Res miranda

There is no rose of such virtue,
as is the rose that bare Jesus.
For by that rose we may well see
that he is God in persons three

Pares forma

There is no rose of such virtue,
as is the rose that bare Jesus.
The angels sungen, the shepherds to:
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Gaudeamus

There is no rose of such virtue,
as is the rose that bare Jesus.
Leave all this worldly mirth
and follow we this joyful birth

Transeamus

- Anonymous, 15th Century Carol
Track Name: The night never bruised
We will go and go until
the night starts sounding
like breaking glass -

We will go and go until
slow-moving taxis poached
wandering souls, in the early,
early morning -
