lyrics

all through the night
the air was on fire
and the breeze couldn't fight
the breath of the pyre

oh my god... it is everything
all our dreams... they mean nothing now
oh my god... what is happening?

when they laughed
they all painted yellow hearts
the kingdom collapsed
when they all painted yellow hearts

mid through the morning
the sun was still under
and the pale city lights
flickered all through that slumber

oh my love... it means everything
all our fears... they are coming true
oh my love... what is happening?

when they danced
they all painted yellow hearts
the kingdom was crashed
when they all painted yellow hearts

when they dance
they sing: "what a joyous day!"
but when they sing, they lie
it's a lonely day...

oh my god... this is everything
all our fears... they mean nothing now
oh my god... it is happening

when they left
they all painted yellow hearts
the kingdom was cracked
when they all painted yellow hearts

we all were relaxed
as the fogs rolled back
and they all went down
with yellow hearts

Freshly forged from the still-glowing embers of The Selfish Gene in Madison, WI, the three-piece band pumps tautly synchronous guitar-rock through reverb-rich veins of catchy melody. Harmonic vocals hover above and between the bars of songs written to linger in the heads of listeners long after the last beat. ... more
