Korin Catnip This is one of the best pairs of songs I think I've ever heard.
"What We Can Do" has a fantastic chorus, but the entirety of "Letting Go" sounds like someone put The Cult into a speed-filled echo chamber.
Hope to hear more! Favorite track: Letting Go.

Track Name: What We Can Do
You might be a genius
Laboring in obscurity, unsung but determined

You might be a guru
More power to you
All we need are fresh ideas
Nerve and drive and humility

(Burning daylight) 
Think of all you have to offer 
We turn no hands away 
Bring your talents and your aptitudes
Big ideas to convey

We depend upon each other
In this unprecedented time
Let's collaborate together 
To improve the world we share

It's amazing what we can do 
If we just put our heads together

You might be a genius 
Wading through the quagmire of an insoluble conundrum

You might be a guru 
More power to you 
No matter your forte, sir or madame, you are welcome

(Burning daylight) 
We depend upon each other 
Collective sparks will be stoked
All for integration
An Interdisciplinary approach

No woman or man is an island 
No woman or man is an island
At the atomic level, we co-mingle constantly
Don't be afraid to get in touch

It's amazing what we can do 
If we just put our heads together
Track Name: Letting Go
I bolt up before dawn
Chunk of ice in my heart
I had that dream again
The one where everything ends
After the empire falls
I'll miss you most of all
And my limousine
That I've never seen
I got a crystal ball
Future so bright
Fell asleep to a record
Cars crash in the night

Time keeps running out
And I can't shake this doubt
I'm losing all I know
Getting ready to let go

In the here and now
The record spun out
I hear a voice in my dream
I wake up with a scream
Sit on the fire escape
Cold at daybreak
I try not to forget
How you got so wet
Under a banner of fire
In the yammer of time
It's all empty and bright
Cars crash in the night

Time keeps running out
And I can't shake this doubt
I'm losing all I know
Getting ready to let go

Pardon me friends, but I gotta move fast
I bought a little time but it ain't gonna last
Body good looking but the limousine's smashed
And living for tomorrow is a thing of the past

My old man said the first will be last
Don't bother me friends, just step on the gas
I don't wanna dawdle, I won't be tied to the mast
Because living for tomorrow is a thing of the past

Monuments built to honor my works
Now I'll get the recognition I so richly deserve
All my predictions will one day come to pass
But living for tomorrow is a thing of the past
