about

This song is inspired by seraphim, "burning ones", flaming messenger angels from the first testament, coming down to earth like spaceships, watching over all the lost souls of man. It's about searching for a god who has vanished, or never really existed. It's about building towers higher than Babel. It's about loneliness, despair, aspirations, curiosity, angels and spaceships.

lyrics

Oh, we heard the calling from
The eaves, where we would sleep some more
The embers burned and so did our sleeping hearts

Oh, we heard them calling from
The towers where we could climb no more
The way was lost, along with our sleeping hearts

Oh, we heard them calling from
The stairs of our father’s house
Like memories, they followed our sleeping hearts

There’s a turning key
There’s a burning light
How they call to me
I can hear them from the rooftop
Souls out in the night

Oh, there’s no one calling from the towers
So we will build them higher
Than before, build with our fearsome hearts

Oh, there’s no one calling from the stairs
Of our father’s house
We closed the doors and followed our fearsome hearts

There’s a turning key
There’s a burning light
How they call to me
I can hear them from the rooftop
Souls out in the night
