"I Hold The Sound" as written by Hutch Harris and Kathleen Foster....
the light out
we don't talk
the light out
we sleep now
the door locked
the door locked
we don't talk
we sleep now

i hold you
i hold the sound
we sleep now

it's safe now
we can move
the world is over
the world is over
it's early still
the sun is cold
the world is over
the world is over

i hold you
i hold the sound
i hold the sound
i hold the sound

we walk now
we can breathe
the earth is flat
the sky is round
it's early still
the moon is cold
we walk now
we walk alone

i hold you
i hold the sound
i hold the sound
i hold the sound
i hold the sound
i hold the sound

the light out
we don't talk
the light out
we sleep now

    General CommentI think that this song is about a blissful return to ignorance. When our 'lights go out' we cease to ask questions about the world, and we can "sleep now" in blissful ignorance.
