Track Name: Sophie, the Air
We're all animals.

Sophie, the lights go out in similar ways for us all in the end.

There's no question in that.
There's no questionin' that.

I never saw you any different,
than the leaves passing by upon the breeze.

Sophie, don't you love the air in your hair?
The way it makes you float with the nature of things.
The way it takes away every-thing.
Even the fact that I'll miss you.

And Sophie, what's it like out there?
In the great beyond,
in the great wide-yonder.

Who say's an animal doesn't mean a thing?
Track Name: The Spider's Colony [version]
The spider's colony growing.
The strength in numbers, increasing.

And I hope she's nothing like us,
she'll have me picking up the pieces, and paying for it.

To hold me willing to name her children.
And hold responsible,
when the wind picks up and carries them home.

The spider's colony, a-webbing.
