lyrics

In the Earth’s first days they were in plain site
In mediaeval times, just came out at night
In the modern age they live in our minds
And a hero needn’t fight

La de de da

If you want to know what you can’t observe
Tea leaves and tarot if you’ve got the nerve
You’ll get what you need not what you deserve
And that thing inside you grows

La de de da

Coursing through your veins
Truths you can’t explain
Sounds cliché to say
But we’re all just energy

Atoms taking shape
Seems like solid state
Just a fuzzy grid
We’re much too close to see

Forever, Forever young and dumb
Eternal whores of Babylon

Snakes with wings will weave you a brand new spine
Flaming tongues will speak to your heart and mind
If you just believe what you can’t define
And willingly swallow lies

La de de da

Forever, Forever young and dumb
Eternal whores of Babylon

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)
