lyrics

Down at the bottom of the cave of hidden wonders
Scratching on the walls with the needle from my compass
Signs and symbols for the beasts and the birds
Too dead for sound
Too lost for words

I have to ask myself
How does it feel?
Then I tell myself
I don’t know but I really feel it
Gimme one second I will try to reveal it
Gimme one second I will try to reveal it

Gimme one second I will try…!

Everyday I wake up like the soul survivor of a
Crash landing or a deep-sea diver
Coming up for air from the bottom of the ocean
On a desert island all lost and alone
Cutting up a rug with an old broom handle
To some lost soul music and the light of a candle
I don’t know but I really feel it
Gimme one second I will try to reveal it
Gimme one second I will try to reveal it

Deep in my cups and heading to the bottom
Can’t shake the feeling there’s something I’ve forgotten
Dancing around in the dust and the bones
Like Time Team or Indiana Jones
Everything I’ve done I’ve always kept with me
I’ve got a head full of ancient history
I don’t know but I really feel it
Gimme one second I will try to reveal it
Gimme one second I will try to reveal it

Gimme one second I will try…!

I traded honey for the bees sting
Braved the thorns of roses but what beauty did they bring?
Beauty ain’t permanent and sweetness turns sour
Day after day, hour after hour
Cutting up a rug like some guy from Strictly
Who’s moment’s come and gone much too quickly
I don’t know but I really feel it
Gimme one second I will try to reveal it
Gimme one second I will try to reveal it

Gimme one second I will try…!

about

James Brute London, UK

James Brute is the former front man of The Brute Chorus. Taking his songwriting and performance into new and darker waters James litters his songs with characters from the Old Testament and Greek mythology and sets them against the most base of human instincts. Now the wild sound and fury is pared back to its most stripped-down; spooked out, strung out and sometimes plain slung out. ... more
