Lyrics

And now the final curtain

Turn your eyes up to the light

She with venom tongue, moves oceans

Pulls you out into the fight



And here you lie with belly open

With the lions round the flame

Who, with tender jaw unbroken

Drag you out into the plains



Chorus

On that Starry Day

On that Starry Day



Iron melted into ivy

Take your body to the land

Pile the small upon the mighty

Bring the moon down where you stand



Backwards now you dance to freedom

Lift your gutted lungs and sing

Break you now into the season

Lift your gutted lungs and sing



Chorus



You kiss ground and hear it rumble

You find beauty in the nerve

See the proud bow to the humble

And sink their feet into the earth



Backwards now with blade and beacon

Lift your gutted lungs and sing

Break you now into the season

Lift your gutted lungs and sing



Chorus
