No limiting or other digital tomfoolery.

    We consider this to be the definitive version of this album. Yes we are nerds.

lyrics

The last time we saw him here he walked up over the hill and disappeared. Lose your power. Grow old or don't. Bloody cold is the season of note.

Like a voice of impending doom, and some kind of sound from the mechanical room. A great machine, with people in between. A great machine. A great machine. There are machines, and people in between. People machines. People machines.

The last time we saw him here he walked up over the hill and disappeared.
