The Phoenix Foundation. Why wait? If you gotta free your fate, then drink it Enjoy it while you sink it I'll fake you, well I make it with the night. Tie off and down I'll pull the Thames soup A drop of blood on my suit A drop is just enough to leave the stain On your shirt And the city is a jerk I'll find a way. 'Cause baby I love you so Oh whoa whoa whoa I can't see clear I don't live here. And the Thames It's riding in my ballad My heart is sick and swelling Exploding like a melon on the street.

The phoenix (Ancient Greek: Φοῖνιξ, phoínix) is a mythical firebird which dies in flames and is reborn from the ashes. Scholars have observed analogues to the phoenix in a variety of cultures, including the Hindu Garuda and Gandaberunda, the Russian firebird, the Persian anka and simorgh, the Turkish kerkes, the Tibetan Me byi karmo, the Chinese fenghuang, and the Japanese ho-oh. Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix. Christina Baldwin, in One to One (1977). 22 February ·. Hey there Wellington.

Give Up Your Dreams is the sixth album from New Zealand’s The Phoenix Foundation. If the name sounds pessimistic then wait until you hear the lyrics of the title track: Don’t let anyone tell you that the world is your oyster, they intone. The world is not an oyster. We were very happy with the recording but laboured over each sound, trying to make every element just perfect, without smoothing it out. (SFS). Silent Orb Originally entitled Annus Horribilis, this song went through many different forms. That seemed appropriately epic for the tune. You’re forced to just listen to the sound of the voice, so it becomes more spatial and confusing.
