Dolphins of Color

Taken from "Five" 2005

"PRAISE ALL YOUR DREAM-LIKE LOVE LIFE
BUILDS ALL YOUR DAYS AROUND
SEAS, AIRPORTS, ASPHALT
THEY CHOSE THE PATH THEY TAKE
BUILD UP YOU’LL NEED YOUR OWN LIFE
STRADDLE/STRAP DOWN
THE EIGHT COUNT SLIDE BREAK WAILS IN TUNE
THE JESTERS OF SYSTEM AWAIT YOU
THE CHILDREN FEEL THE NEED TO PRAY
THE SHADES OF LATER
DROWN THE SOUNDBIRD STATION
SEEKING LOVE
SAFE NOT SAFE FROM HARM
THE PROUD ONES SLAVINGS LONG
CHASING THE STATION
THE BASTARDS WEEP
THEIR RAGE WON’T MENTION
SAVE THEM LIGHT FOR BREAKING DOWN
THE CHILDREN SAY THEY WANT THEIR BREAK
I CHASE THEM AROUND
I CHASE THEM ALL AWAY"

A mounrful Circus Devils song that is made up of a keyboard and strange persussion. Bobs voice is very deep and slow and gives a sense of forboding and darkness but with an uplifting chorus. Circus Devils are an odd band, sort of more experimental, but darker as well. "Dolphins of Color" is also a great name for a song.

This song has made me tear up more than once. I find it to be pure beauty.
