about

This song is about time, past and future, and, as with all of the tracks on the record, is linked with the sci-fi world of Isaac Asimov, here taking inspiration from the imagined science of Psychohistory, which predicts major events in human history through analysis of big data. It's a song which poses questions about fate, faith and the bigger picture we're all part of.

lyrics

LYRICS

And so, history's born before it came to pass
Its natural watercourse is mapped out in advance
And the advancing water's deviated from its path
The weathervane points North

The wind blows in a low whistle, then charges like the stampeding of

horses towards a fork in the road -
The path the masters chose
Waiting behind the curtains
Biding their time
Waiting in the wings

A feather's weight could tilt the balance of it
And the iron rules resist the coming crisis -
The path the masters fixed
Waiting behind the curtain
Biding their time

The future's one of innumerable sums
A mosaic of something like order
Something like order
Something like order
Something like order

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.
