"White Noise" as written by Sacha Skarbek and James Milne Walsh....
In the white noise of everything,
I heard voices still trying to sing.
Who were they? What'd they say?
What was lost? Was it worth all the fuss of it?
I don't know, maybe so.

We stole the light from there eyes.
While it was still just a spark.
We mined it for what it was worth.
Wasn't much, wasn't much.
Find another pair of lights.
No machine is ever free.

You had a fixed bullet proof sort of world view
Now it's bent, it's bent, it's bent
You used to say you know exactly where you're off to
Now you can't, you can't, you can't

You make your mark in everything
'Cause you don't know where you are
You've been swearing up and down you knew your way
But now you're back at the start

So you shed your former shell for a new one
And find the appropriate dress
Dazzle anyone who listens with those big words
But know that they're meaningless

You need them all to know your name
'Cause you don't know who you are
You've been swearing up and down you know your way
But now you're back at the start
Don't feel bad, you're like the rest of us

Time moves on and we realize we're all strangers
Nothing binding us now except our habits and scowls
and our off-hand nitpicks
We try and close our books, and put an end to endless chapters
But then wake up the same, bear our teeth and complain
And then do it all again

No! that's not me, not this time
I won't fall into line
I'm gonna cut a different path if it kills me
No, I'm not sold
I won't roll with the punches again
I'd rather take a couple hits than lay back on this one

We make our mark in everything
'Cause we don't know where we are
We're always swearing up and down we know the way
But wind up back at the start
And in hindsight it's all circular
