Lyrics
Four Of Five

it's dusk, four of five
hunter-gatherer, i begin to head home with my take-out

look up at the heavens, see the first four points of light
and scan them from left to right


king of kings, show us your thunder and lightning
punish the liars, gaze upon our world

his father taught us how to farm the land
move the hands on our clocks, number our days

march in with your bloody red shield
rattle your saber, threaten us with war

the jewel of the sky, light of love and beauty
lady of the evening, please bring us peace

(didn't really notice the delivery kid
rushing out of the lot though)


climbing into my chariot
the crystalline sky is quickly forgotten

it's dusk, four of five
heading home with my take-out

you always have a way with words each line moving with the chord changes, great summary of human history but I could be wrong, excellent!

Smokey - you were APOD before APOD was APOD.

I love this tune. What a great match between that bowed bass sound accompanied by your vocals. This is a really fantastic arrangement. Everything is perfect. Marching drums exactly where we need them, flutey synths where they belong. At first I thought it was Bryn singing. I never thought you two sang alike but now I hear it.

I love the lyrics and the way you treated the vocals with such a sweet gentleness.

I think this is my favorite song of yours ever and I haver a ton of good ones competing.

Thank you for another download!

Sombre opening but it builds nicely. I do like the lyrics. Unusual but strangely engaging. Thanks, Peter.

The take-out and the delivery kid offer a light-hearted contrast to the somber tone. Some cool ideas well executed.
