lyrics

Not one original thought in your mind
You just know you’re alive and you don’t want die
You’re overcome by the need to rush out on into the streets and scream
As if your childish shouting could shake and wake the world from its own dream
You say “stop your busyness, your petty arguments don’t you get it?
See this life takes place in time, as time moves on your life goes by before you live it.”

The waiting is over
We can take things slower
In the long day that follows
But we don’t see tomorrow

Not two short years ago there was a night
When you lay up in bed and you prayed to the light:
“I’m overcome by the speed in which the hours turn to days and weeks
The weeks to months the months to years, the years add up and then it’s time to leave
Oh please stop this dizziness, if it’s some kind of test then I don’t get it
See this life takes place in time, as time goes by your life moves on before you live it”

The waiting is over
We can take things slower
In the long day that follows
But we don’t see tomorrow

about

2 a.m. Orchestra Auckland, New Zealand

"Dark harmonies and compelling melodies performed with equal parts sombre emotion and stark perfection." (NZ Musician Magazine)


"2 a.m. Orchestra has delivered an album that is worthy of superlatives. Impermanence deftly translates the chaos and elation of life, into uplifting and well-arranged rock songs - songs fused with eclecticism, vigour and exuberance."
(Get Frank)
