lyrics

Human

The way I see the world

There are nice humans, and others

But then I realize

Somebody might hear too much



So many

Secrets

In a day

Don’t lose hope

But don’t get too

Carried away



The way I see the world

There are nice humans and others

Let’s go into the woods

The hillside will not eavesdrop



I saw the

Light towers

The mirrors under the car

Not allowed

To pull over

Not allowed to stop



Bridge:

Loud speakers at dawn

The inner German border

One time we prayed

We never went back



The way I see the world

There are nice humans, and others

But then I realize

Somebody might hear too much

about

I Took Your Name Groningen, Netherlands

The original plan was to make an ambient guitar record about rail yards. All that audiotransparent and kendler guitar player Chris van der Ploeg came up with was songs. He christened his project I Took Your Name, the name borrowed from an R.E.M. song.
