This album is about a vision I had a while back...
It's about a boy and girl who find themselves within the same dream, unaware if the other is a figment of their imagination. In the dream they awaken on top of a slow, moving train in the countryside, each one interpreting the experience in a different way: The girl envisions airplanes in the distance floating to the ground, while the boy sees bodies slowly descending to a group of hills far-off in the distance. They share their visions and hold hands, each finding the other's story to be beautiful and inspiring. In whispers, they both promise to never let go and ride on the back of the train until they wake up. They close their eyes, sharing memories from past dreams and experiences before drifting off to sleep.
As time passes the train moves faster and faster, and the boy discovers that they are now headed for a cliff, meaning the dream will soon be over and their time together will end. Instead of waking the girl, he decides to let her sleep, ensuring she never experiences loss while inside of the dream and will always remember it as a positive experience.
But seconds before going over the edge, she wakes up, and they both embrace as the train tumbles over the edge. They say their goodbyes and drift slowly apart, each one reaching out for the other as the world breaks apart.
First three songs were recorded on June 16th, when the brakes of the trucks tumbling by sounded like muffled trains...
