When Kali danced

Kali danced the world apart
Her movement was the dawn of earth
Cosmic sway that killed her man
Until she turned to give rebirth
Live your dream, he said and fell
I’m to tired out to join
Try your luck, I don’t give a fuck
Play your cards and flip your coins

And let our story grow old
Pass it on, let it be told
And let our vows grow old
May your arms keep someone else enfolded

Burning wings won’t get you far
This desert stretches miles away
Like the phoenix we will rise
From the ashes straight into another day
I’ll take you to my hideaway
I’ll take you where the sun is high
You’ll agree that we’re here to live
You’ll accept that we’re here to die

And let our story grow old
Pass it on, let it be told
And let our vows grow old
May your arms keep someone else enfolded

Thebes is hard to cross these days
Solve the riddle of the Sphinx
Surely we’ll outlive her ways
Rise like soldiers, think like kings
We could be as good as myths
Brutal love and twisted rage
All those kids could learn from us
Mentioned on a worn out page

And let our story grow old
Pass it on, let it be told
And let our vows grow old
May your arms keep someone else enfolded

When the Garudas flap their wings
It blows down homes and darkens skies
Guarding Buddhas throne but strikes of lust
And gets deported from paradise
It was hell at times, he saw me
I danced to keep my heart beat
How could I possibly know
He’ld be killed right under my feet

And let our story grow old
Pass it on, let it be told
And let our vows grow old
May your arms keep someone else enfolded
