"The Inuit Promise" as written by Jeffery Dimpsey, Tim Lash, Bryan St. Pere and Matt Talbott....
I took a worn out strand of your cellophane hair and stretched it
Sideways
And though my mind slipped though between the sea with me
My brain stopped working from the cold

I sort of strayed from what we know
So I'll be like you and I'll do what's right
I'll win a love I don't deserve out on the ice tonight
Teach me the bluest song you know

The moon ain't comin' up
And I swear to God tonight it feels like snow
Glad we got your hands warm so my arms can feel like trust again
I can promise true waves when the summer comes

The world still fits the same form we engraved when it all began
Maybe catch a new wave
Feels right
So we ride whales and drag race time

And knock the fires from the traces of trilobite hives
You sleep like God inside her womb
And you see clearly too
The silicon wasteland they left inside my mind

Glad we got your hands warm
So my arms can feel like trust again
I can promise true waves when the summer comes
The world still fits the same form we engraved when it all began

Maybe catch a new wave
We've lost the road now
Inject the charms
And we care for all of ours, we stand in rows now

Transfer alarms
Just like the Inuit with the promise song
Come down and see
Your solvents frozen here on the petal rung

Is all we have to see
Enlarged inside as we espy
The warming sea.
Your breath diffused and never realized

Aside from where the panicked hide
And I
Just a subtle lift
Provider on the other side

    General CommentThe rest of the song is missing. At the end when "come down and see" is repeated, the following is what is being sung in the background:

    Your solvents frozen here on the petal rung
    is all we have to see
    enlarged inside as we espy
    the warming sea.
    Your breath diffused and never realized
    aside from where the panicked hide
    and I
    just a subtle lift
    provider on the other side

    General CommentFirst of all, Inuit is defined as people living in an Artic Region. I see this as relating the everyday life to the lifestyle of someone living extended periods in the dark. He is seeing the world as a dark place the the momentary laps of warmth/light of a person that he cares for.
