The Rhythm of the Heat

Peter Gabriel  Buy  License   

Looking out the window
I see the red dust clear
High up on the red rock Stands the shadow with the spear

The land here is strong Strong beneath my feet
It feeds on the blood
It feeds on the heat

The rhythm is below me
The rhythm of the heat
The rhythm is around me
The rhythm has control
The rhythm is inside me
The rhythm has my soul

The rhythm of the heat
The rhythm of the heat
The rhythm of the heat
The rhythm of the heat
The rhythm of the heat
The rhythm of the heat

[Repeat x2] Drawn across the plainland
To the place that is higher Drawn into the circle
That dances round the fire
We spit into out hands
And breathe across the palms Raising them up high
Held open to the sun

Self-conscious, uncertain
I'm showered with the dust
The spirit enters into me
And I submit to trust
Smash the radio
No outside voices here Smash the watch Cannot tear the day to shreds Smash the camera Cannot steal away spirits
The rhythm is around me
The rhythm has control
The rhythm is inside me
The rhythm has my soul
