Agnes Obel Philharmonics Lyrics

Guess who died,
last night
In grey stockings,
in all might
It was no loss
The only God of mine

He fell down,
just to drown
In a sea
of delight
To tame champagne
And creatures of the night

As the water,
took him over
Filled his lungs,
inside out
I sold his gold
For flowers and rice

Speaking fire,
he would hire
Pawns and peasants
just like me
To feed upon the conquered ones
But now we are free
