Called out in the dark


01. Called Out in the Dark
It’s like we just can’t help ourselves
‘Cause we don’t know how to back down
We were called out to the streets
We were called out into the towns
How the heavens they opened up
Like arms of dazzling gold
With our rain-washed history
Well, we do not need to be told
Show me now, show me the arms aloft
Every eye, trained on a different star
This magic, this drunken semaphore, and I
We are listening and we’re not blind
This is your life, this is your time
We are listening and we’re not blind
This is your life, this is your time
I was called out in the dark
By a choir of beautiful heat
And as the kids took back the parks
You and I were left with the streets
Show me now, show me the arms aloft
Every eye, trained on a different star
This magic, this drunken semaphore, and I
We are listening and we’re not blind
This is your life, this your time
We are listening and we’re not blind
This is your life, this is your time
We are listening and we’re not blind
This is your life, this is your time

02. Fallen Empires
You called my name in the dark, called me back to the start
The condensation is building tension
Stubborn silence is formed, around our bodies it’s warm
The cool wet grasses as summer passes
Frightened under attack, fallen flat on my back
Arms and legs, I’m too scared to beg
Harm me most when it’s light, thought of you don’t sit right
I need the darkness a desperate embrace
Razing cities to dust, faces dripping in lust
Fallen empires and raging bush fires
All your words unfounded, secret lives bound in bed
Living backwards and tangled back words
Ruined everything right, so good can’t see the light
From my cave I can see the wave, fallen empires and raging bush fires
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)

03. My Brothers
My Brothers Lyrics
You might think your cursed
But with so much worse
Is the knowledge that you are
When your cursed with love
That is buried so deep
That you can’t dig it out of you
When your crystal ball
Is a towering wall
And the road is a dark book end
You know what remains
Is what needs maintain
But your temper Is not your friend
Take it easy on me now my brothers
Take it easy on me now my brothers
When their games are driving you up the wall
And their wearing you like a crown
But you’re jar trapped bees
And it’s plain to see
That you can’t tell what’s up or down
Take it easy on me now my brothers
Take it easy on me now my brothers
Well it’s no surprise
In those steel blue eyes
I can still see some flecks of fear
But you’ve grown up fast
So forget the past
And just hurry yourself from here
Take it easy on me now my brothers
Take it easy on me now my brothers
Take it easy on me now my brothers
Take it easy on me now my brothers

04. I’m Ready
This island calls my name, and I
Broke out in two
The gods find you, and your calm and they
Rip down the sky
The path clears for long enough to glimpse
Where you should be
Are you wolf, or are you lamb are you
Too scared to choose?
I’m ready for the answers
I’m ready for the trap
I’m ready to be shocking
I’m ready to be shocked
Your cold hands feel good on me and my
Scorched heart cools fast
A stranger taught me all I know of
The world and not the thirst
The alleyways and darkest lanes in my
Tired mind form a star
A frightening star of dark red heat that burns
Through my whole body
I’m ready for the answers
I’m ready for the trap
I’m ready to be shocking
I’m ready to be shocked
