lyrics

Rise Like a Phoenix

Verse 1:
It is now late afternoon,
And the sun shines through the crystals that are hanging in her room,
And she thinks she’s Joan of Arc,
Still commanding all the gallant ones who never came to march.

Pre-chorus:
And she feeds you fruit from her deepest root,
And you seem perplexed, but she shows you her context with it.

Chorus:
Cry like you mean it, Smile like you’ve seen it,
Hope like you dream it, and rise like a phoenix.

Verse 2:
‘Tween the eucalypt and her pride,
Where the sons of the iron throne say she’ll never be defied,
And the light and dark converge,
She’s spread at the edge of the bed longing for you both to merge.

Pre-chorus:
And she feeds you fruit from her deepest root,
And you seem perplexed, but she shows you her context with it.

Chorus:
Cry like you mean it, Smile like you’ve seen it,
Hope like you dream it, and rise like a phoenix.

Verse 2:
Upon the quelling of the seas,
There lies a land with contraband,
With your truculence you’ll go and seize,
When the Valkyries call your name,
Just remember that there’s Freyja there with a solipsistic claim to your flame

Pre-chorus:
And she feeds you fruit from her deepest root,
And you seem perplexed, but she shows you her context with it.

Chorus:
Cry like you mean it, Smile like you’ve seen it,
Hope like you dream it, and rise like a phoenix.
