Kissed by a white hot sun The right place at the right time It's when life is restored So just kiss it back That’s when she is wide open Her mouth agape, her eyes are on fire Molten light pours onto your hands Your lips find a smile You feel without restraint This world requires nothing of you So just live within it Just live within it Feeling her arms wrapped around you Let your tears fall into space These things can never be recreated They form a tapestry It was a fluke A naked idea The face of a beautiful god In a warm glowing mirror

To be wistful To be young With a hand in the past Your feet on the floor A touch that will last He’s in love with the door, as I create you I create you He’s in love with the door And all that stays unsaid Another Sunday with the lights off Another year alone And what will it bring Wear a mask to the club Speak within lines Move to the back Move around in the back Sincerity in shadows He loves your secret pull How you leap into the visceral It makes all these lies less dull He’s in love with the door, he’s in love with the lights off

Can I take you Can I take you somewhere else To leave it all behind Can I make the ground enough To escape into love To let these thoughts rust Just fall into me The moon is high Your skin is grey And It all feels the same And you take all the blame (but do you feel alone, do you feel alone, do you feel alone) Can I take you somewhere else? Can I make the ground enough? To escape into love To let these thoughts rust You made it again We take a breath together and I feel relief and innocence But do you feel alone? It’s all up to you Though I am here for you it’s your light that will save you But do you feel alone? It’s all up to you Though I am here for you it’s your light that will save you But when you fall deep inside Do you see these eyes That forever love and caress the marks you’ve made And when you fall deep inside Do you see my eyes Or does it feel better to ignore the light we’ve made So when you fall deep inside Do you think of the light That caresses your eyes And fills you with love that will never go away So when you fall deep inside Take a piece of the light Feel the warmth it gives life And you’ll never lose sight of all the love you’ve made

And I found myself here Waiting for you So just once We take our time It pulls us to an end But for now we belong here As stillness embraces us I embrace what is mine And someday you'll be here Waiting with me And someday you’ll be here Waiting here with me

Raison d'être is the conclusion of a trilogy of natriums albums, preceded by Déjà Vu (2018) and Façade (2017). The album proves to be a culmination of natriums' work, with the producer collaborating with fellow artists to integrate vocals and live instrumentation, all while creating longform soundscapes. The massive concluding track "End" serves as both a melancholy farewell to times past and an uncertain greeting to the future. A true testament to artistic development.

This record is dedicated to MBD. Thank you for your continued support and love for the project.
