about

The track that birthed the Fifthsun EP. Basically, I re-structured and rewrote the track at some point. The old version got elaborated into the Fifthsun EP. This version was the "completed" version. Basically, this version was was Version 2.0, and originally intended to come out first, with the Fifthsun EP kinda being a B-Side.

You can still kinda line up this track with the "Fifth Sun pt 1" section of the Fifthsun EP and see the structural similarities. Though the pt1 version got various segments moved around a bit and elongated, and has that self-indulgent keyboard jam in the middle of it.

Thematically, this is basically a song about falling in love during the end of the world.

lyrics

Every path ends less lucidly.
Rewiring the circuitry.
I’ve found it hardest not to choose.
When there is nothing left to loose.

Found it all on the setting of the Fifth Sun.
Chasing after that transcendent hazy high..
Five times and waiting for the next one.
All that stands above us only sky.

Fact and theory both agree.
Verified to highest degree.
The weight of life in love and deed.
Your face your breath it’s all I need.

Sold it all on the setting of the Fifth Sun.
Burnt out like a diamond in the sky.

Every path leads back to you.
I’d change anything, just for you.
Because I’ve got enough to lose.
My choices left to you to choose.

Found it all on the setting of the Fifth Sun.
Chasing after that transcendent hazy high..
Five times and waiting for the next one.
All that stands above us only sky.

Found it all on the setting of the Fifth Sun.
Chasing after that transcendent hazy high..
Five times and waiting for the next one.
All that stands above us only sky.
