A new time is upon us Painted on a screen Life is once so precious Live by as you mean Lights are going up now Time to set the scene Satisfied with wisdom Little do you seek Looked for an escape Forgot the things you need Left out in the shallows Waiting on the day

You’re a psychic CPR Like a shot out of the dark How did things go this far? How’d you awake my heart? Like Geese chase etc. ”Te-amores” plethoras You took my life only half How’d you awake my heart? Why’d you awake my heart? I was blind in the dark But I can always restart Gijón sea salt in our scars To the scaring of our lives You took my life only half Why’d you awake my heart? Like Geese chase etc. ”Te-amores” plethoras You took my life only half How’d you awake my heart? Why’d you awake my heart? I was blind in the dark But I can always restart You’re a psychic CPR Like a shot out of the dark How did things go this far? How’d you awake my heart?

Talk is cheap, on a loosing streak You looked for gold, and your soul got sold Take my hand into the promised land Twelve page letter Twelve page letter to you Twelve page letter... Lightning strikes in the same place twice On steeper pills, you’re gonna cure your ills It’s understood, in bad there’s good Twelve page letter Twelve page letter to you Twelve page letter...

37th Floor 03:18
From the 37th Floor I see your face once more Some lies are cheap When you’re in so deep Cheap people you ignore Pick puzzles to explore And lose their place In tomorrow’s race Innovation, memoirs of a mind Revelation, life of a different kind From the 37th Floor I see the skies endure Forgotten dreams Become just memories Innovation, memoirs of a mind Revelation, life of a different kind As we wait for little more The rain slips through your door You live in vain Driven insane Innovation, memoirs of a mind Revelation, life of a different kind

Sweet valley midnight Like the sunshine on the air Whispers I need you Living without a care Like the sunshine in the morning Like sunshine in the shade As the breeze softly shakes you You're ok, don't delay... Sweet valley midnight Like sunshine on the breeze Her words softly call you Like the summer needs the bees Like the sunshine in the morning Like sunshine in the shade As the breeze softly shakes you You're ok, don't delay... Sweet valley midnight Like oceans and the tide Her winds softly lift you And move you to one side Like the sunshine in the morning Like sunshine in the shade As the breeze softly shakes you You're ok, don't delay...

Sent a mail by letter Put a stamp on a dream Woke up at 5:30 To chase shadows from a dream Walk away into the light of day Watch your whole world slip away Took a trip across the river Took a trip downtown City lights ain’t pretty When there’s no one around Walk away into the light of day Watch your whole world slip away Fluorescent soldiers paint our town And there’s nobody around Send an army to your street And admit you face defeat Wide awake is the sinner Half asleep is the song Some do greet one another And others don't stick around too long Walk away into the light of day Watch your whole world slip away Fluorescent soldiers paint our town And there's nobody around Send an army to your street And admit you face defeat

Times getting shorter now Minds getting taller somehow Exit on todays, bluer blue Rains beating through the cloud Rainbows are high around Life ticks on by now Challenge what you say, for another day Lives taken in our hands Roads beaten, many tracks Times ticking on now, I can see Words written on a page Aboard tomorrow’s train Everything is one, the colours paint the sun The cobwebs on the breeze Set your mind at ease Times getting shorter now Minds getting taller somehow Exit on todays, bluer blue Challenge what you say, for another day Everything is one, the colours paint the sun The cobwebs on the breeze Set your mind at ease Sunsets are falling down Lights sticking to the ground Oceans so deep they fade with time Flowers a painted frown Skies dripping to the sound Of the electric static crowd

Jacob's Well 02:51
Jacob’s Well is a fairy tale A land of dreams, Split at the seams One foot up in the clouds Two eyes closed for now Sunrise in summer town Your mind’s tuned to finer sound Jacob’s Well, stood as I can tell. One foot up in the clouds Two eyes closed for now Sunrise in summer town Your mind’s tuned to finer sound One foot up in the clouds Two eyes closed for now Sunrise in summer town Your mind’s tuned to finer sound

So much trouble, we see today Seems so sad things are going this way But as people we have a choice To live as one or hide our voice At any moment of given time We can change our frame of mind All the cynics without faith Believe in words but it’s not too late But as people we have a choice To live as one or hide our voice Any moment or given time We can change our frame of mind Our frame of mind So much trouble, we’ve seen before With the killin’ and the war But as people we have a choice To live as one or hide our voice Any moment or given time We can change our frame of mind Our frame of mind Listen here to what I say A change is coming soon our way So much trouble So much trouble...

I can feel my life surpass me Shallow rock to reconcile me I desire a change in thinking I can see my star collapsing Sunsets on Mars elapsing I desire a change in freedom Take a leaf out of my book And I think you’ll want to look As horizon meets the land I will take you by the hand

about

The Statue Thieves London, UK

Formed in 2012, London-based The Statue Thieves play riffs and bring in tones influenced by classic rock to create unique psychedelic textures of blues, noise and soul. As the name of the band suggests, The Statue Thieves stand on the line that separates cultural canons from vandalism, classical beauty from dissonance, technique from spontaneity. ... more
