about

Moody Ellingtonian piano, horns and strings embrace sinuous female vocals in a pop-jazz confection with memorable themes.

lyrics

Down

Struck by a long shot dart
Caught in a hanging fire
Frozen in amber thrall
To an ill-starred desire
The siren choir

Calls me down to the center down to the vault
Down to the essence down to the fault
Down to the heartbeat down to the flame
Breaking to enter staking the claim


It’s been a long dry spell
Cast on a fallow heart
Waiting for one sweet rain to break
The gale to start
a world apart

Going down to the promise
Down to the core
Finding the diamond mining that ore
Down for the distance into the strange
Heart of another give up the reins

I’ve bridged it I’ve burned it
I’ve swum it I’ve spurned it
I’ve run, numb
Only to find at the end of the line
Kingdom come’s undone


Down to the weakest link in the chain
Down to the tension down to the grain
Down to discern the ice where it’s thin
Down to the wire out on a limb
