about

IN ORBIT is about leaving and coming back, about repeating problems in life, about the seasons: The winter, and waiting for the summer to come. The ever repeating patterns and endless circles that can be found in the nature that surrounds us, in the universe and in ourselves.

'Life goes on within you and without you' - George Harrison

Track Name: Now you won't let me in
I'm my own flesh and bones
Man i've grown hard as stone
And now you won't let me in
Cause you won't

You eased my mind, loosened my ties
We took our time, told some lies
And now you won't let me in
Cause you won't

Cause you won't trust me, oh no
You won't trust me, I think i'll go
You won't trust me
Cause I hurt you bad, when you left me hanging here

You couldn't stay, and you took a plane
And I couldn't wait, and I went insane
when I couldn't see you anymore
And you won't let me in

Cause you won't trust me, oh no
You won't trust me, I think i'll go
You won't trust me
Cause I hurt you bad, when you left me hanging here

You built that wall so high above you
I can't climb it anymore
I don't want to live without you
So please, open up your door

Please, open up your door
Please, open up your door
Please, open up your door
Track Name: The Greenlands
Momma called in sick today,
she's hurting in so many ways.
But she's not one to talk about it.

And I'm sitting here at home again,
with no appointments to attend,
I'm trying not to think about it.

So let me live upon your dreams
Cause I can't choose between my own.

Oh, now I can't live in the greenlands anymore.
Oh, times are changing and I got to leave for sure.

Now I'm living free and I can't complain,
but I'd love to go and hop a plane.
Go some places I have never been.

And I'm not trying to deviate,
but I do declare I sometimes hate this society
that we're all living in.

So let me float upon your dreams,
cause I am drowning in my own.

Oh, now I can't live in the greenlands anymore.
Oh, times are changing and I got to leave for sure.

Carry me home, to my mother.
Carry me home, to my father.
Carry me home, on your shoulders.
Carry me home
Track Name: Don't wait for the summer
I can't say where you'll stay in the long run,
guess I'm better off not knowing where you'll go.
You're not tied to some kind of illusion,
you're not tied to some place you call home.

But then why are you waiting
for that wintertime to pass you by
oh why

Why are you waiting
for that wintertime to pass you by
my love

Oh I can see that upstreams you are floating
You make it seem like an easy thing to do
Trying to find peace of mind without searching
trying to spread a little brighter shade of blue

But then why are you waiting
for that wintertime to pass you by
sweet bitter child.

Why are you waiting
for that wintertime ooh to pass you by
my love

And if there's a hole in your body,
get it filled up with some love,
with some new love, with some better love.
And if there's a hole in your tummy,
get some food to fill it up,
don't wait for the summer babe,
to warm you up.
Track Name: Wintercome
A sparrow came to my window this day
Trying to fight its reflection
Oh it displayed some meaning in life
and it eased my weary mind

When the winter comes, my dear
We'll stop the tides from turning
When the winter comes, my dear
You'll see my cold heart burning

When the winter comes, my dear
and the pressure builds a little bit more
When the winter comes, my dear
We'll turn into diamonds, i'm sure
Track Name: The great wide open
Seven days ago I couldn't get myself to sleep,
my mind was rambling on so strong.
Seven days ago I couldn't wake up in the morning
I was too tired, to go on

Old man, won't you look at me
I am twenty-three and I'm still not feeling free
Old man, won't you look at my plans
am I running out of time?

But you never even think
about any of these things
you just walk straight out into that great wide open

No you never even think
about any of these things
you just walk straight out into that great wide open

Forty-seven years ago a young man in the canyons of topanga
living on his own
He left his home in Canada, took the car to California
and drove straight out into the unknown

Old man, won't you look at me
I am twenty-three and I'm still not feeling free
Old man, won't you look at my plans
am I running out of time?

But you never even think
about any of these things
you just walk straight out into that great wide open

No you never even think
about any of these things
you just walk straight out into that great wide open

Got to get back to the garden
Got to get out of our shell
I think we could learn from our parents
But we should take a good look at ourselves,
ourselves
