lyrics

They’re fast asleep
The lions are in their cages
They dream at ease
Just knowing that the dangers out there
Have been contained
Their shadows roam and wander open spaces
They shape their shifts
And wear a thousand faces out there
Unrestrained
Cause when they close their eyes
The beast arrives
Bursting through to the sound of a million lights
Crashing in waves
They send the night
Crashing in waves

Her heart it beats
And beckons like a speaker
Their reverence deep
They listen to the teacher out there
Unrefined
Her dance is strange
Her rhythm unfamiliar
Her face deranged
A countenance peculiar
Out there
Keeping time

And if her rite requires a sacrifice
Well there’s plenty more just waiting in line
Crashing in waves
They send the night
Crashing in waves
They send the morning light off to die

Bursting through to the sound of a million lights

Her heart it beats and beckons like a speaker...
