lyrics

In a city with a fever
The temperature is rising
Lost in endless pleasure
Leaves run wild with sap
In our exotic land
The men are bright and handsome
And the women are a wonder
Balanced on a razor’s edge

And there’s a flood
Flowing through your window
And a god has made us deaf
And now we only hear
His claustrophobic music
As guests inside our own house
Waiting for the recompense given to Job

So if you get born on your knees, then learn to pray
You get born on your knees and learn to pray

Our money has disguised itself as nature
Hope is our illusion
And we’re restless ’til we rest in
Seduced by darling idols of the polite world
With a slice of fortune one night
You’re nomadic in the next life

Spying through a keyhole
At those born in the purple
At a needle in a haystack
At stars in distant orbit
Like jesters on a tightrope
We stride to our disasters
On unedifying highways
We reap the whirlwind

If you get born on your knees, then learn to pray
You get born on your knees and learn to pray

Am I a lonely one-man choir
Confessing to myself?
You know I’ve tried to read between the lines
I’ve tried to understand the signs
A witness to Rome’s decline


If you get born on your knees, then learn to pray
You get born on your knees and learn to pray
Get born on your knees and learn to pray
Born on your knees and learn to pray
Born on your knees and learn to pray
Born on your knees then learn to pray
Born on your knees and learn to pray

The Danish band's new music takes the signature indie rock from the dark clubs of their youth in Copenhagen and merges it with full-fledged cerebral critique and symbolism. ... more
