about

words & music: Minka Hoist & Svend Seegert

lyrics

It’s hunger that wakes him, he crawls from the cave
Out into splintering light
To salmon in streams, the sweet berries of dreams
His appetite makes all things bright

(chorus)
Away the earth tips, it pauses and slips
And tips back this way again
Through light and through dark, long minutes of arc
We chase the year in its spin

A buzz in the air, gold dust on each hair
Of six legs in tremulous flight
From stamen to stigma she bears the enigma
To pooled amber that’s shot through with light

A flag the winds twiddle, its ribs going brittle
It twists in the guise of a kite
From green, yellow, orange to crimson and brown
It twists till it falls into flight
