about

The 3rd collaboration between Jayl and the Dutch Singer-Songwriter Landa and inspired by the painting by Terry Anthony, which became the front cover of the album. The song contains the key lyric of the album "The universe weaves the net, I dance on - the dance of life". Consequently, the song has become known as "The Dance of Life". This is also a theme for faith in the universe or the divine power, be that spiritual or scientific. When Jayl and Landa composed the lyrics they used the concept of Gamezzz, in this instance the drawing of Tarot cards - the first of which was The Universe card. Interestingly, every card drawn was of major arcana (e.g Magician, Lust). The song was recorded at Jayl's Underground studio in Gloucester.

lyrics

DARK ANGEL

(For real ... the ghost of shadows past)

The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life.
The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life.
Three angels, "Nemesis, "Love" and "Sting" -- burned my soul.
So ... time to dust my intuition ...
Love is blue, love is grief and love is ...

The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life.
The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life.

Lust and power, the lady rides my many headed beast.
And dreaming the dark, the magician sets his hawk into my sky.

The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life.
The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life.

"Fear Not ... Fear Not"
"What is not real never was"..."What is not real never was"
"And never will it be"..."And never will it be."

Three demons, "Nemesis, "Love" and "Sting" -- froze my soul.
So ... time to trust my inner voices ...
Love is grey love is free and love is ...

The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life.
The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life.

The Universe weaves the net I dance on -- the dance of life...

("You are holding up my head ... so I can breathe")
