JOY KICKS DARKNESS LYRICS

I love that we've just released our second single in a month. We're 6 shows into the tour and are having a blast. The Panama Kings have renamed the tour from A-Z to A-Dead. So far no casualties though.

Here are the lyrics for Joy Kicks Darkness to celebrate it's release. The lyrics are about mortality with funeral pyre imagery and references to Ulysses. The title comes from a Jack Kerouac quote, I switched the first two words around.

We started recording the song a year ago and finished sometime in the spring. It's so great to play live.

Many more beauties like this to come...

 Joy Kicks Darkness

 

On the wind the ashes rise

I've been searching for you all of my life

Tears are welling in your eyes

Listen to me Daddy, you don't need to cry

For I know one of these days

I will travel there among the vast array and take my place

 

Here we go

we'll leave all fear behind

Sailing into the sun

This is our time

Death and glory

Supreme sacrifice

We will meet again

On the other side

Rising into the light

 

We can't wait, there is no time

You cannot predict when lightning will strike

There's no chance to hesitate

Destiny has looked you straight in the face and called your name

 

Here we go

we'll leave all fear behind

Sailing into the sun

This is our time

Death and glory

Supreme sacrifice

We will meet again

On the other side

Rising into the light

We'll meet again

Be released in the end

 

Here we go

we'll leave all fear behind
