Track Name: Burning Low
Burning Low

Well the sky's alive with a million shining words
And the day's wide open as an empty page.
You sing I Am, once again I am
The king of here, king of now.

Light me up one time
I've been burning low and I don't know why.

We tripped along a naked road
Angels play in the dewy diamond light.
There's a splendour here amongst the pavement weeds
We lie down in the weeds, down in the weeds.

Light me up one time
I've been burning low and I don't know why.

You said we talk so loud but we are amateurs my friend
But would you dare to dream if you knew it was the end?
The day's so very young why do we lie here in the dust?
When we're dressed up to dance, dressed up to dance

Light me up one time
I've been burning low and I don't know why.
Light me up one time
I've been burning low and I don't know why.
Track Name: The Devil & Tobias ben Jacob
The Devil & Tobias ben Jacob

Wake me up
Devil drinkin' from my cup
He come for me
Shake me from the monkey tree.

A crime, a crime
Devil gonna steel my time
A fix, a fix
Devil gonna get my kicks.

Holy! I'm down on my knees
Watch over me.
Through all my trials bear with me
For I'm only a weary beggar for love.

Your lips, your lips
Devil in your fingertips.
In my skull, my skull
Devil gonna pull the wool
Man a fix, a fix
Devil gonna get my kicks
Track Name: Desire
Desire

It's not bodies, it is souls that feel
A burning hunger for something real.

Ah, but the things you do just to feel alive
They have wounded you a thousand times.

And it's unholy all this longing
If you lose yourself in desire.
And all she asks of you is to slow down time
Make the world brand new
Bring it back to life.

Ah, but the things you do just to feel alive
They have wounded you a thousand times.

And tell me again how will it end?

Oh, to hear her voice
Oh, to touch her face
Oh, to be on your knees
For a moment's grace.
Well she's at your door, do you love her still?
'Cause every time you fall it's a bitter pill.
And all she asks of you is to stop time
Make the world brand new
Bring it back to life.

Ah, but the things you do just to feel alive
They have wounded you a thousand times.

And it's not bodies, it is souls that feel.
Track Name: We Are The First Ones Now
We Are The First Ones Now

You hit me like a hurricane
All my walls came tumbling down
Homeless, naked as a new-born child.
Hold me in wonder
We are the first ones now.

Ye ghosts I cannot carry you
Down the road back to life
Oh to be young, oh to be free
Oh to be alive!
There's beauty when I open my eyes

Breathe, we are the first ones now.
Breathe, we are the first ones now.
Breathe, we are the first ones now.
Track Name: A Polyphonic Life
A Polyphonic Life

They really set me up, they plugged me in
Now I talk in a monotone
I say the same God-damned thing
Cut my hair, change my name
Make a man out of me.

You really fixed me up
I'm in your head
But I don't believe the things that you said.
It's only ghosts, only dust
That you measure me by.

Oh let me breathe, let me fly.
Oh let me live
A polyphonic Life.

Young brown eyed girl
She said what's your name?
I know your face, I've seen your face
Maybe in a dream

I said you don't know me
You see I change with the second hand.
Yeah well clocks don't turn right
Time don't move right
When you're dreaming.


Oh let me breathe, let me fly.
Oh let me live
A polyphonic Life.

And I see a little light shining
A hidden world behind your eyes
A thousand dreams unfolding
A thousand lives within a life.

So I keep a little light shining
I keep it burning inside
A thousand dreams.
We metamorphosise.


Oh let me breathe, let me fly.
Oh let me live
A polyphonic Life.
