The Cat Empire Lyrics

Adelphia by The Cat Empire


I was born in a kingdom with nothing but rules
Hum a little melody woven in lies
Tattooed on the skin and then sanctified
Oh I miss those old songs
Coming out of worn down speakers, straight fire
Wires from a mind with nothing to hide
Spit warrior of late night and wine
Can you call it back

In each inhalation a little fire grows
Travel the world in a Winnebago
No-one can find us but we arrive with
Buckets of wine and wherever we go
Women and children and men would limbo
Out of the mist of another mountain
Smuggled a diamond out of the Congo
Self-immolation, I don't think it will last long

But if I woke somebody's heart tonight
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh ooh-ooh
Then I know, then I know, then I know
That it's not over for me

I can feel the road on my skin
I can see the lights in my eyes
Jump up on the stage and get hypnotized
It's a strange strange feeling
Moustache men got nothing on me
Decibels overpower high priests
Faces arranged into features that please you
I just wanna meet you

All over the world, I collide with atoms
Slamming around in the psychic jungle
Buses and trains, and another meat tray
Sitting around in the glimmer heat wave
Every day it's another question
What is your name and what is your action
Come on and find us appearing near you
Never too late for me to work a little magic

But if I woke somebody's heart tonight
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh ooh-ooh
Then I know, then I know, then I know
That it's not over for me yet

Aaah
Adelphia
Aaah
Adelphia
Aaah
Adelphia

In each inhalation a little fire grows
Travel the world in a Winnebago
No-one can find us but we arrive with
Buckets of wine and wherever we go
Women and children and men would limbo
Out of the mist of another mountain
Smuggled a diamond out of the Congo
Self-immolation, I don't think it will last long

All over the world, I collide with atoms
Slamming around in the psychic jungle
Buses and trains, and another meat tray
Sitting around in the glimmer heat wave
Every day it's another question
What is your name and what is your action
Come on and find us appearing near you
Never too late for me to work a little magic

But if I woke somebody's heart tonight
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh ooh-ooh
Then I know, then I know, then I know
That it's not over for me yet

I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go, I wanna go

I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia

I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia

I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia

I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
I wanna go
Back to Adelphia, Adelphia
