LYRICS

May morning
Air is humming
Fire is dying in the front room

Mayfly

The tired eye of morning looms
Last dawn on terra firma
Mother sends a prayer from her lips
Stay with me - she said so softly
The words fell slow like dust
If they ask say I've gone to see the giants

The giants
Earth's bleeding
Oceans boiling
Cracks return us to the abyss
Sold my home
A bird's migration
Headed for the red planet
Telescope
As a child I witnessed grace
Majestic space and the giants

Frontier

No history bears the names of these brave men and women

Pioneer

The music of the spheres decides our fate

Great statue

Burning bullet shot into the endless void

Great ship

The 'heart of gold' was forged ten billion years ago
If they ask say I've gone to see the giants

about

Kettle of Kites Genoa, Italy

Kettle of Kites is an indie art rock band. It’s a soaring crescendo and then a simple folk melody. It’s a vast wide open space and then an intimate living room – a geometric maze to find your way through.
