about

Glossolalia is the first single from our up and coming album

"The Thunderous Silence"

lyrics

Shoot fire
Roll it backwards
Is it worth my while to philosophise?
The world on which the words rely
Describe
Alternate structures
Words are only lies
The game is up, the well is dry

Thank God I'm with myself
I collect the words, and the world seems close
But while I kid myself
I neglect the world, and the words she wrote
Maybe God killed himself
With what he sowed, maybe the blood ran cold
When Nietzsche spoke

Shoot fire
Roll it backwards
Isn't it worth my while to philosophise
The world on which the words rely?
Describe
Alternate structures
Words are only lies
The game is up, the well is dry

It could be that this trouble on the surface of things
Is not what it seems
Maybe we are just the bubbles on the surf of the stream
Trying to come clean
It could be that this trouble on the surface of things
Is not what it seems
Maybe some day all these bubbles in the circular stream
Will do what they mean

Shoot fire
Roll it backwards
Isn't it worth my while to philosophise
The world on which the words rely?
In time
The learning suffers
Words are only lies
The game is up, the well is dry
