philharmonics lyrics – agnes obel

philharmonics

guess who died,
last night
in grey stockings,
in all might
it was no loss
the only god of mine

he fell down,
just to drown
in a sea
of delight
to tame champagne
and creatures of the night

as the water,
took him over
filled his lungs,
inside out
i sold his gold
for flowers and rice

speaking fire,
he would hire
pawns and peasants
just like me
to feed upon the conquered ones
but now we are free
