lyrics

LYRIC:
(Thanks to Blake, Thomas, Baxter et al)

And of eternal light
In recurring dreams,
In verse the seers did divine.

Read the waters moving
Heard the cosmos yawning
And the Sea's hexameter beating on.

Who holds the key?
Who is king of thee?
Why the questions in your mind?

Who wants to be?
Who owns these memories?
History repeats in rhyme.

Tyger Tyger,
Tyger burning bright,
Tyger Tyger,
Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night.

Rage rage rage
Against the dying of the light,
Rage on the page,
Dylan Thomas.

Oh love it is our sonnet,
And here we are in rhyme.
We're dancing through this sonnet,
And here we are in rhyme.

And the blessings
From the stereo roll forth,
The beat goes on
The beat goes on.

On dead leaves fallen
The sun has shone in time.

And who is king of you?
Who is king of me?
And who is king of you?
Who is king of me?
