This kiss is a crime
Let's not wast time
The cover of night is breaking

They even the score
We capture five more
Make a forbidden offering

Our heads are two stakes
Lets pull down the gates
Declaring freedom

Send out our armies
Bring death to our colonies
Our harmony drowns out the cries of our enemies

Climb up to a treetop I'll be on a mountain top
Looking for you across the valley
Birds pull you higher while the sky is on fire
Searching for the dying daylight
I need you, I need you, I need you



Our bodies are pyres
Waiting for fire

The judge and the generals
Claim jurisdiction


The faithful assemble
The crowd starts to tremble

The gavel it rises
And begins to fall



Treason proclaimed
Pyres burst into flame

Two souls ride the sparks
Into the blue



Climb up to a treetop I'll be on a mountain top
Looking for you across the valley
Birds pull you higher while the sky is on fire
Searching for the dying daylight
I need you, I need you, I need you



This world is a shackle
Let's shout til it rattles

Bring down the walls of Jericho

Climb up to a treetop I'll be on a mountain top
Looking for you across the valley
Birds pull you higher while the sky is on fire
Searching for the dying daylight
I need you, I need you
