about

Recorded live on stage at The Prince Albert, Brighton, December 1997.

lyrics

She is old, wired arms and bible skirts.

There is a law that says that all things move in a pattern of exchange
And I’ve come to believe that to take control we must let go of the reins
Oh rise again, I think the time has come for us to take the strain,
Take a chance, set our heels to the silent line,
I do not known where I am going now, but I admit that I was wrong

We’ve been trained to sit in a tower and watch for the wind
We’ve been caged by an image of ourselves that we are moving within
We’ve been chained, but listen now, we will hear her sing,
across the valleys, the fields and the motorways,
turn down the lights tonight, they’ll be in the way, yeah, see see see!


All she’ll sing,
tonight these walls will fall,
Come down and watch it all,
Watch it fall into one,
only one...
And we shall sleep now more,
In the fields our minds will storm
And form the centre of love,
Only love...

In the light of, in the light of, in the light, in the light of love...

All she’ll sing,
tonight these walls will fall,
Come down and watch it all,
Watch it fall into one,
only one...
And we shall sleep now more,
In the fields our minds will storm
And form the centre of love,
Through the eye of the storm
