Artificial Lake

I know, I know, it’s an artificial lake,
But the swans are real and the trees look great,
Put your bite into the bark and try to take,
A little light from the dark before the season breaks.

I am a child of science, water and blood,
I tried to be self-reliant, I was only acting tough.
Put your bite into the bark and try to take,
A little light from the dark before the season breaks.


I know, I know, it’s an artificial lake.
A rock pool, a dead light, a flash in the pan,
Turn off the headlights and throw away the way the map,
You won’t need that contract, nothing concrete, nothing safe,
I’ll meet you in the morning, down by the lake.

I know, I know, it’s an artificial lake,
But the swans are real and the trees look great,
Put your bite into the bark and try to take,
A little light from the dark before the season breaks.

I am a child of science, water and blood,
I tried to be self-reliant, but I needed your love,
Put your bite into the bark and try to take,
A little light from the dark before the season breaks.

I know, I know it’s an artificial lake.
A rock pool, a dead light a flash in the pan.
I know, I know…
I know, I know it’s an artificial lake.
I know, I know it’s an artificial lake.
I know, I know, it’s an artificial…
