ORB

ORB
When the walls of the temple
Are cast to the ground
And light shines through the ruins
When the form decays
To leave no trace
That is the time of re-doing

And the sun is shining
Casting rays throughout the universe
And everything goes on as before
The slip of light has pierced
The very heart and soul of you
Take a look now, open up your door

At first you may find it a little curious
Just let go to the feeling
Describe a circle your arms outstretched
Learn to feel this healing

Singing…
Li la li li li li la li
Li li li li la la li la la li li la la

Send the sun’s rays into the earth
And round and round and round revolving
The moon will shine her light upon you
As round the stones we are returning

Return…
Li la li li li li la li
Li li li li la la li la la li li la la

Become a tribe of many lives
Around and round and round and round evolving
The moon will shine her light upon you
As round the stones we surely are returning

Return…
Li la li li li li la li
Li li li li la la li la la li li la la

Send the seeds into the earth
You know you know you know it’s worth
Send the seeds into the ground
It’s a holy holy holy sound

La la li la la la li li
Hey hey!

Don’t you don’t you don’t you know
We gotta sow sow sow sow
And don’t’ya don’t ya don’t ya know
We’re gonna grow grow grow grow
Grow grow grow grow grow grow grow grow!

La la li la la la li li
Hey hey!

And the sun is shining
Casting rays throughout the universe
And everything goes on like never before
The slip of light has pierced
The very heart and soul of you
Take a look now
Open up your door

Fun Facts:
* There are some songs that give the listener goosebumps as soon as they hear and recognise the first couple of notes and realise they are about to hear something truly extraordinary.
* Orb is one of those special songs.
* There are several distinct sections to the song with classic riffs and earworm la-la-la vocals.
* It was performed by the Spacegoats before Alchemeon started playing it.
* Orb would have been the first of two encore songs in a live performance.
* Jim’s droll “Thank you and good morning.” at the end of the Winter version was a moment of sublime comedy.
