about

Track 1 of the ep. Lead vocal, Bedini.

lyrics

Hmm, village huddled in the wild wood
Things were simpler by far.
Tribal elders and a priesthood
Time was measured by the stars.

Flames … flick across the face of night.
Yeah, but it’s a long way to the dawn
So turn your eyes to the coming of the light
Feel the flame of life re-kindled and re-born.

Feel it lift a thousand souls – feel it stir a thousand hearts.
Tales by ancient prophets told of a spirit that would guide us through the dark.

Yeah, but did you hear those funny stories,
Rumours spreading from the East?
Hmm, but some of them get pretty gory
Called a man the Prince of Peace; hung him up like bits of meat.

Still it lifts a thousand souls – feel it stir a thousand hearts.
Tales by ancient prophets told of a spirit that would guide us through the dark.

*
Now it’s the big box office thrill
And if you thought you loved your neighbours, now’s the time to pay the bill.
Ring the changes on the till
Let the healthy prophets guide us through the dark.
Yeah, but hey! Our old friend has changed his face
Shined his shoes, picked up the pace,
Father Christmas joined the race –
Spaceman comes with tales to tell – ringing on his solstice bells
Don’t you wish it could be Christmas every day?

*
Yeah, but don’t you feel a touch of something?
Something older that we are?
All those long forgotten voices crying out across the ages
Time so vast that it was measured by the stars.
